Explain yourself, +Cara Evangelista!
An infestation of urban-dwelling creatures usually causes people to gag or get the frights, but one furry city animal is taking over Boston's terrain – and winning its residents' hearts.

Not statistically valid (I'll have to work on this) but a 3-year trend: less water in reserve each year. 2015 had better get really miserable and wet, soon.

He was ripped off for True Detective, now Thomas Ligotti is being asked to review Pizza Hut's new Hotdog Pizza Bites.

Surströmming - "It tastes like regret"

Be warned - video is NSFW, or... NSF if you're eating, or considering eating.

"A fermentation process (which converts sugar to acids, gases, and alcohol) of at least six months gives the lightly-salted fish its characteristic strong smell and somewhat acidic taste."

I always wondered about Semi's with sleeper cabs.
I also note none of these trucks have flat beds. 

I shall flee now.

LOOK UP!
On June 30, two astronomical objects are destined to meet: The planet named after the Goddess of love, Venus, and the planet named after the God of Thunder, Jupiter. On Earth, they will appear so close together that they will look like a dramatic "double star."

A few weeks ago, I posted a link to an article about how this boy was fighting for his life. He lost the fight.

Totally unnecessary.

Hopefully, only a few incidents (even more hopefully, no more incidents) like this will be necessary to convince the parents, who are willfully exposing their children to diseases we've effectively controlled for decades, to act like rational beings and get their kids vaccinated.

The boy with the first case of diphtheria in Spain for 28 years has died, Catalan regional health authorities have told The Spain Report. The boy had not been vaccinated against the disease, which his parents now attribute to being “tricked” by anti-vaccination groups.

Introduction
“Then God sent the Greyhound to live among man and remember. And when the Day comes, God will call the Greyhound to give testament, and God will pass judgment on man.”
Persian Proverb

We have to remember that what we observe is not nature herself, but nature exposed to our method of questioning.
-- Werner Heisenberg

Puritanism. The haunting fear that someone, somewhere, may be happy. 
-- H.L. Mencken

Muzzle a dog and he will bark out of the other end.
-- Malcolm Lowry

I can't understand why people are frightened of new ideas. I'm frightened of the old ones. 
-- John Cage

"When the only tool you have is a hammer, every problem starts to look like a nail." 
-- Abraham Maslow (subtly paraphrased)

Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.' 
-- Isaac Asimov

I've seen a look in dogs' eyes, a quickly vanishing look of amazed contempt, and I am convinced that basically dogs think humans are nuts.
-- John Steinbeck

History is merely a list of surprises. It can only prepare us to be surprised yet again.
-- Kurt Vonnegut

Wanting to meet a writer because you loved his book is like enjoying some pâté and wanting to meet the duck.
-- Margaret Atwood

A biologist, a physicist, and a mathematician are sitting in an outdoor cafe. They watch two people go into a building across the street. Shortly thereafter, three people come out.
"Hmm," says the biologist. "It looks like they reproduced."
"Nah," says the physicist. "There was obviously error in our initial measurement." The mathematician looks up from his coffee. "Who cares? If another person goes in, it'll be empty."

If you can't be a good example, then you'll just have to serve as a horrible warning.
-- Catherine Aird  

"Faith and knowledge are related as the two scales of balance; when the one goes up, the other goes down… The power of religious dogma, when inculcated early, is such as to stifle conscience, compassion, and finally every feeling of humanity… For, as you know, religions are like glow worms; they shine only when it’s dark. A certain amount of ignorance is the condition of all religions, the element in which alone they can exist."
- Arthur Schopenhauer, Parerga and Paralipomena (1851), cited in Who’s Who in Hell compiled by Warren Allen Smith

I collect signed first editions of Orwell's '1984', most of which are carefully stored in my basement suite in Venice. I also have a timeshare on the shores of beautiful Lake Vostok.

Not a bad used bookstore, but I'd warn anyone sensitive to cigarette smoke that the proprietor smokes in the shop and the air circulation seems to be bi-annual.
