Far be it from me to quibble, but…

Wouldn’t this make a lot more sense if they’d substituted “robots” with “machines”?

Unless “robots” is being used for some specific purpose I’m not seeing.

Bed

I’m not really sure how to tag this — it isn’t an LOL exactly — but I felt it was worth a salute.

Body Image

Did anybody else find this kind of unsettling? Jeremy’s actions, Sara’s reaction, Jeremy and Hector’s discussion, all of it… It’s like something that might have run in the forties or fifties, and not in a good way.

Clocks

Edited to add: So apparently this did have a caption, which for some reason didn’t make it onto the copy that was sent to me. Since Mona and 1958 Fury were considerate enough not to spill the beans, let’s turn this into a “create your own caption” contest (only, of course, for those of you who don’t remember the caption from the origin comic and didn’t look it up).

Shouldn’t that be “Office RUSSIAN Roulette”?

Cidu Bill on Jul 25th 2017

By the way, the first time I ever heard of “Russian roulette” was from this Mad Magazine cartoon

So of course it was a CIDU.

It took me well under a minute to track down this graphic — and I was indignant that it took almost two minutes to come up with the exact issue (July 1963).

We really do take the Internet for granted.

A mendiant is a sort of chocolate candy, which doesn’t help at all.

In case you feel inclined to complain about today’s heat…

Cidu Bill on Jul 20th 2017

Just for the record, I had this queued up for today several months ago (for those of you nowhere near the United States middle-Atlantic states, this is hottest day of 2017’s hottest week)

… that comment Einstein never actually made applies to when parameters aren’t expected to change. In the case of this physical activity, you would reasonably expect to get better at it over time.

Let’s have show of hands: how many people here “made things complicated” in this way?

As far as I’m concerned, this is a teacher fail.

You know, this would be a lot funnier if it didn’t happen to us at least once a month.
