#4417: On the plus side we don't have to run the heat.

70° and raining, all day (pretty much) and after the cold we had (including two nights with frost warnings in a row) it feels like July or August.

This did not keep them from turning on the heat at the store. *sigh* And you know what good it would have done me to ask that the thermostat be adjusted?

But here at the bunker, I control the thermostat, and that means I can avoid broiling in my own waste heat.

Shepherd of the Gurneys explains why a real ebola outbreak in the US will not end well. The main reason is that we have a total of 23 beds in the country which can supply full isolation. The rest of them are going to be less effective at containing this shit.

I hope I'm wrong about this, but the offical news I'm hearing about ebola in the US has the distinct odor of fertilizer.

Lately I have been thinking about the old cartoons I drew in tech school called EPA Man. EPA Man himself was actually a martian, and he had various bold (mis)adventures.

One example: "EPA Man has been exposed to a virulent filovirus!"

EPA Man: *Cough* Huh?

...and then he turns into a puddle of goo with eyes, going SPLOOT in the process.

EPA Man has an inordinate number of things happen to him, and all his adventures end with a trip to the Reconstitutifier, a machine which turns him back into his normal ornery self every time he gets turned into a pasty puddle.

What have I been thinking about? The possibility of scanning them and posting them here, because it's a lot of fun.

I would have to do some work on the dialogue and such, because my handwriting was scarcely better twenty years ago than it is now.

We'll see.

    Everyone is surprised that ACLU is a bunch of communists. I could have told you that forty years ago. When I was in junior high school I was…

  • #7871: What's broken NOW??

    Had to go to far off-site (soon to be main site) today, so I was able to see my new office. They've already got a nameplate outside it! How long has…

  • #7870: Heavy rain

    Probably the last thunderstorm of the year, hard rain. Weather site says "2 to 3 inches of rain"--for the day, I think--and I'm not inclined to doubt…
