The coat of arms of the Noble and Most Ancient House of Wurtsmith: a goat argent, passant on a field "party per fess" (halved horizontally) azure and vert, wearing a necktie in House Ravenclaw colors (bendy sinister, azure and argent).

Motto: "Goats beyond measure is man's greatest treasure."

Designed by my lady-wife, and painted by yours truly.

Dungeon Masters who are considering taking their campaigns to Novorassi would be wise to look to the works of Vsevolod Borisovich Ivanov for inspiration and world-building.

 I like that they don't use long, complicated sentences and wiggle-words to describe what's going on behind the scenes; they talk to the viewer like a normal person.
In the course of a criminal investigation, sometimes the government requests information on Google users. We’ve put together this video to illustrate how we protect users’ information from excessive requests, while also following the law. We release the number of requests we receive for user data twice a year in our Transparency Report

Oh man, Google better watch out, or Bird Flight Media might overtake them in the advertising market with their bold new concept: ads attached to real live birds!

In honor of Pączki Day, here's a video about Poland.

I want you to think about the fact that just about EVERY COUNTRY IN EUROPE (or the world, for that matter) has had its' borders change at least this much in the last thousand years. Some of them even disappeared entirely!

What if The Jetsons is actually about our distant, unremembered past, and The Flintstones is the show that's set in the future?

I think I just blew my own mind.

So Africa contains a LOT of valuable natural resources. The problem has been, historically, that they're found in places which are inconvenient for white people to access. What's the solution? A massively irresponsible river-damming program which fundamentally reshapes the whole face of the African continent, to make the interior accessible by oceangoing vessels.

Guys. Someone actually thought this would be a good and morally justifiable thing that we could do to a continent. Someone actually hoped to do this IN THE REAL WORLD AND NOT JUST AS A JOKE AT ENGINEER PARTIES.

Best service I've ever gotten from a gas station employee. The girl behind the counter was polite, helpful, and happy to serve me: she should get a raise.

Even though this gas station is more conveniently located, i routinely drive out of my way to avoid buying gas here, thanks to the ceaseless, blaring procession of ads that they pipe through every speaker. They can never be turned off, turned down, or ignored. The ads are always talking, pleading, cajoling, *begging* you to buy something; its like having a homeless person stand there and harass you while you try to pump your gas.

Not bad exactly, but disappointing. My family came here for my dad's birthday lunch; when the food arrived, there was a hair in my own dish, and one in my dad's (he's bald, so it definitely wasn't his). While the waitstaff were fairly attentive for a slow Saturday afternoon, they seemed lethargic, not eager to serve us (which I know from personal experience is a tough thing to do, but you can always at least put up a facade of attentiveness). The food was OK, but the aforementioned hairs took a lot out of my ability to enjoy it.

I bought a samurai-sword umbrella here, and it's been the best umbrella I've ever bought. I thought it was mostly going to be a novelty, and I was aware that it might turn out to be more funny than practical. Fortunately, my fears were unfounded. Even after a year of use, it still gets me lots of compliments (and second looks on the street), and it's a very sturdy piece of hardware to boot.

A truly world-class tour! The guides were knowledgeable and fun; my wife and I were glad we made this part of our honeymoon itinerary in Atlanta.

Though the place was a little hard to find, and we were kind of worried when we arrived on a Friday afternoon to find the gate still locked despite our reservation, the owner and his sons turned our attitudes around pronto. We were EXTREMELY grateful for the fire-building skills of the owner, a former Eagle Scout; while he was helping us build our fire on our first night, he told us that he brings his three young sons with him up from the big city every year, to spend their summers running around in the woods and playing on the lake, which sounds like the best possible way a boy could ever spend a summer. Because his sons spend so much time at the campground, the whole establishment is very kid-friendly, and all of our neighbors were extremely considerate and nice (except for some rowdy frat boys next door). I highly recommend this place to anyone who wants a relaxing weekend of camping and canoeing within driving distance of Lake Michigan.

A friend of mine introduced me to these guys a few years ago, and I've called them for every repair I've needed ever since. Even though nowadays I live in the next town over, I still make the trek over to Ypsi every few months, just to leave my car with these guys. I really like bringing my car here. They do the work quickly, and they always seem glad to see me. The owner even recognizes my voice when I call in!
