Huge sections of The Wall got blown over by wind. The Mexican contractors hired to build it, could easily slip back and forth between the bars.

I am once again thinking about this radiation source. You're wandering through an abandoned lab, and find this tiny cylinder on the ground. You pick it up and peer at it. It has "DROP AND RUN" engraved on it w/a radiation trefoil. You drop. You run. But it's too late.

I suppose I could check, but Google and Wikipedia are *WAY OVER THERE*, and I'm /already/ in my pajamas....

There have been threads about "Don't blame the cast and crew of Star Trek about CBS/Parmount's decision". I beg to differ. I believe Ensign Sonya Gomez is /directly responsible/ for this. The character, not the actress. She brought hot chocolate into Engineering. (domino meme)

I don't have any pictures of kittens. But would you like some comfort-food? Mmm, mac and cheese, the best comfort food on the planet! Second only to lasagna! I could share with you, if you were nearby.

Are you telling me you *can't* do this, Shinji?

At that angle, Gus looks like one of the Sentry statues from Neverending Story. Just as serious, and willing to shoot laser-beam eyes, but without the boobs.

Every time I read "(Vice)Presidential Limo pulls into (place)", I think of that hilarious time when Obama's The Beast scraped the bottom of its engine off on an incline and broke itself. *CLANK* 0:00->0:13 is the relevant part. piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=ep9bomhK…

One of the guys on my team at this job; this was like, maybe 25-30 years ago - was a former Marine. He had all of the default Marine skills. IT wasn't one of them, but he was eager to learn. SO. FUCKING. EAGER. Mgmt /loved/ that. It's like we couldn't train him fast enough.

Yep, but my salad fingers can detect the vibrations of the heads of a faulty disk pointlessly seeking back and forth.

The real answer is because it's a solid block of contrasting parallel stripes, and horses (not just police horses) have no *idea* what to do with that. They probably interpret it as a cattle grid. (Apologies for linking to an RT video) piped.kavin.rocks/watch?v=TMyf6ewi…

Here is my little box of kitties. Excuse the shitty camera work. No smartphone, I'm literally holding a laptop trying to take these pics. I LOST THREE OF THE KITTENS! THERE WERE FOUR! Only one left, now. But luckily she can drink from the spilled milk-pail while mom looks on.

It's blurry and the color+lighting is all weird - I don't have a smartphone, I'm using my laptop's camera for this, holding it awkwardly - but this is a corner of my apartment. NO IDEA what is inside any of those boxes against the wall. Except the top one, it's open (not shown)

Well, it's one of those "Pack up your shit and go" boxes, like you see when people get fired from sitcoms, and their box has a potted plant sticking out of it, like a paper grocery bag with a baguette. So it's a fairly small box. Like xerox paper boxes. Not this, but *like* this.
