Ungrump is still a thing, everybody.  What's new?

* Stupid things I do at work and so can you!
* Cary Elwes wrote a book! I read the crap out of it.
* I complained about having to have a coherent plot. Augh!
* I described a fictional man's body in deeply discomfiting terms.

Truly, something for everyone.

How dumb. The cops and the media outlet look like buffoons.

Wow. Paul Rudd is a better tackler than AJ Hawk. And deserves two Oscars for They Came Together.

(Even if it wasn't actually Rudd, which it probably wasn't)


Oh Hey, Paul Rudd Was One Of The Dallas Airport Homophobe Heroes, No Big

http://wonkette.com/564538/oh-hey-paul-rudd-was-one-of-the-dallas-airport-homophobe-heroes-no-big

So you all saw the video, today or alllll the way back on Saturday, of a bunch of Dallas airport heroes tackling the fuck out of that violent homophobe guy. But you DID NOT know one of the heroes was Paul Rudd, because you are not Internet sleuth Sara Benincasa. This is even better than the time Ryan Gosling Hey Girled Laurie Penny from getting hit by a lorrie! So here is a thing, about this, for blogging. When we saw the video alllll the way back on Saturday, we said, “that is nice when men choose to be manly by physically — and at risk to themselves — keeping the peace. But we are guessing everyone here is bored and also on the lookout for troublemakers and terrorists. Call us when they stop a gaybashing in front of the Crowing Cock.” But we did not say it out loud. Well! Now that Paul Rudd is involved — which we know thanks to Sara Benincasa and also this dude @msigs — we are going to guess that FUCK YEAH they would have stopped that nonsense in the streets too, because we give Paul Rudd more credit than random Dallas cowboys, because we are regionist and also classist and probably racist too, the end. Go ahead! Go back to about a minute thirty and watch Paul Rudd full-on tackle the asshole! Good job everybody! Keep calm and keep the nutpunchers down!

+Anthony Pierre do your gut bacteria tell you what to eat?

I think maybe it's possible that gut bacteria reinforce dietary choices.  Perhaps we train certain bacteria to thrive based on our diet; that starts a feedback loop to produce more bacteria that rely on making those same choices.
In an ecosystem within us, microbes evolved to sway our food choices.

One thing I learned this week: when I get an error installing a package onto my Nexus 4 for testing, I can fix the error by deleting the app-debug.apk. Seems like the permissions or build of the debug apk are somehow corrupted. Rebuilding it has solved all the install errors I've encountered so far.

I feel like turn down service might be the stupidest invention ever.

Why did you shoot me?
This video will blow your mind. On the plus side, the officer in question was fired from the South Carolina Highway Patrol and has now been charged with aggravated assault. But here's the story (with video). White Highway Patrol officer stops a black man for a seat belt violation outside Columbia, SC. The state trooper Sean Groubert, 31, asks the driver for his license. The driver, Levar Jones, reaches into the car to retrieve his license - a...

Jebus. A real-life Barney Fife. But they gave him more than one bullet. Sickening.

Had a solid lunch during the Tall Ships festival in July, 2013. Kids had a few choices beyond the standard hamburger/chicken finger/macaroni and cheese options and enjoyed the build-your-own sundae from the dessert options. There are quite a few gluten free items available. The ribs were good, especially the baked beans. The bulldog bites had good flavor, though it wasn't a big portion for a meal.

Easy to get to this lake shore park. Fun to play on the rocky beach. Great view of Lake Superior and Duluth.

Very quick. Staff is very helpful. The exact opposite of what the DMV experience is 'supposed' to be.

The room was clean and the kids really liked the pool area. There was plenty of room for them to play in the pool while the adults sat nearby. Continental breakfast featured an automatic pancake maker. Pancakes were fine, machine was kind of cool. Room was spacious, including a microwave and two small refrigerators. Staff was friendly and helpful. Coffee maker was broken in the room. It's less than a 10 minute drive to downtown Duluth, but the neighborhood isn't great.

The kids really enjoyed this hamburger place with a lot of flair. They liked writing on the walls more than the food, though.
