maybe there is something to this

i think that most of the food scares in the past 30 years (at least) have been blown waaaaaaaaaaaaaaay out of proportion, including the beef hormone issue.

but the other night i saw a ten-year-old girl with a mustache and unibrow...

and frida kahlo didn't have any kids...

star trek vs dune

no, not that "dune"

(from a comment at lileks' bleat)

nasa produced some neat images of sand dunes on mars, which were popularized and satirized on gizmodo.

then, lileks' commenter belaglik boldly went where no photoshopper had gone before!

update 1: the local malcontent commented that he thinks i'm "better than that", which is nice to hear. though i may be completely misunderstanding that thought (l.m. correct me if i am and i'll re-update), but i don't know that there's any basis for it in reality.

this year will be the 26th anniversary of the only valentine's day i ever had an actual valentine. and while i think i rank slightly above average on the romantic ideal spectrum, i barely had the social tools necessary to participate in that one, and it's been downhill on that front ever since.

so, i will give my kudos to all good romantic celebrations this week - from the sideline, as usual.

update 2: this potato seems to agree with that previous post :)
