Link round-up for 13 October 2019

Various interesting stuff I ran across on the net over the last week.

o o o o o

Have some visual puns.


This person is probably still waiting to get her e-mail.

Worst robber ever.

It's a cat Halloween.  And these cats are even color-coordinated.

Drive the new Kardashian car.

I see faces.....

Avoid playing Monopoly with this family.

Manitou Springs, CO makes imaginative use of skeletons.

Now this is a creepy pumpkin.  Get ceramic ones here.  See a few more seasonal images.

She's riding half a horse.

Baby chameleons are very small.

It's generally unwise to set yourself on fire.

I suspect machine translation.

It's a meeting that's meant to be.

Cinderella strikes back!

An incel posts an incredible rant about dong size (I wonder if all the unnecessary capital letters are "compensation").

One man's unrequited passion led to sad consequences.

If you are a Christian, this post is soliciting your responses.

Max's Dad reviews The Joker.

Flag-burning is OK in this case.

Trumpanzees engage in distraction, badly.

This Christian college operates a lot like a totalitarian state.

Trump and his gang are basically comic-book villains.  But the evidence against him is now pouring out into the open.

You don't need to waste your life.

Nan's Notebook looks at a Trumpanzee blog, more moderate than most.

Sorry, guys, a certain amount of mockery comes with the territory when you live in a free society.

Apparently ghost hunting is a thing (found via Mendip).  How do you mount a ghost's head on your wall?

King David was a grab-'em-by-the-pussy kind of guy.

Hysterical Raisins thinks there's more to Shepard Smith's departure than meets the eye.

Beware of counselors who aren't really counselors.

Don't romanticize the rejection of modernity.

Here's why most Republicans aren't keen on replacing Trump with Pence.

This trend is unsustainable -- we need to start doing things differently.

How exactly did Parnas and Fruman know they needed to flee the country?

These people exist.

After this battle, some soldiers' wounds glowed in the dark (found via Mendip).

As an architect, Leonardo da Vinci was 300 years ahead of his time.

Here are a few things you can do about colds and flu.

Modern technology may enable us to read scrolls from Pompeii and Herculaneum which were charred in the Vesuvius eruption almost 2,000 years ago.

Vote in accordance with our taboo system, or burn in Hell.

The UK and Ireland are working toward a solution for their common border, one of the main sticking points about Brexit.

At the Amazon synod, a pagan ritual within the Vatican is freaking out the true believers.  A battle between tradition and political correctness is in full swing.

This is what theocracy looks like.

The Kurdish territory in northern Syria has a surprisingly advanced system of decentralized democracy (first link found via Big Bad Bald Bastard).

A US soldier in Syria voices the shame of Trump's betrayal.  The leader of Syria's Kurds is considering turning to Asad or Russia.

What did you do in the war, Turkey?

Legislators in Uganda are trying again to institute the death penalty for homosexuality.  Hostility to gays has always been pervasive in Sub-Saharan Africa, where more tolerant attitudes are widely viewed as an alien and unwanted cultural contamination from the West.

Planned Parenthood understands how much is at stake in the coming election.

A politician's age and related infirmity are a legitimate election issue.

No, Warren was not "caught in a lie" about the fired-for-pregnancy story.

Republican attacks on Schiff are manufactured rubbish.

Always remember, Trump really doesn't know what he's doing.

Warren is serious about opposing the power of big money in politics.  If she's nominated, it might result in freeing the party from its main source of corruption.

Trump: "a sociopathic monster with a fossilized buffalo turd for a soul".

My sympathies are with the Kurds right now.

That rhino picture is a hoot. Our zoo has a fake rhino but that sprays people who walk past and trigger the sensor. It looks just like that.

Good list of links today! The photo of the pissing rhino is hilarious!

Ya know, I'm sure my 86 year old dad would be like that woman who couldn't find her email through the moving stars...if he had a computer.

I love this time of yer when people carve scary pumpkins and post pictures of them online.

Baby chameleons? I didn’t know I needs that.
And of course Xtianist school work like totalitarian states, duh.

I love the way that cattle egret is just standing there in the line of fire in that rhino picture. Lots of good links here Infidel. I enjoyed many. Good jokes too. Thanks for linking to Lady M's again - your the bomb.

Oh I've been ON that call to the lady who couldn't find her email...it is all too painfully familiar.

Hi Infidel!

Have a small window of time right now to look at some of the links. I'll click on the rest later.

First, thanks for the link over to The Raisin. It's appreciated. Second, where did you find a pic that is a perfect metaphor for Twitler (the rhino or RINO, I suppose, to some) pissing on the country (but since it's a white bird, it could be his very own cult members he is taking aim on)?

I love, love, love puns, and those were excellent, including the title.

How did a stranger get hold of a conversation between me and my son when I have a computer problem?

Worst robber ever, or another visual metaphor for the Twitler administration?

Dracula's cat is perfection!

Speaking of color coordination, I recently noticed that my dog's cookies and treats are the same color as he is.

Is that a Kardashian car or a Malaria kidneymobile?

Those turtle "faces" were really disturbing. That gave me the creeps.

Why did God create war?
So that Americans could learn geography.

If it wasn't so true, that would be funny.

The "2-legged" horse pic is amazing! I would have sworn that it was photoshopped.

The baby chameleons look like characters from a new Pixar movie.

I think it's generally unwise to participate in any kind of challenge that is supposed to be videoed and displayed on Youtube. They never end well.

Does the world really need a Titanic II when we have a Twitler I?

Back later.

Worst robber ever cracked me ALL THE WAY UP!!! I had to replay it 3 or 4 times, couldn't stop laughing. OUT LOUD! Thanks for the laughs, that made my day.

Wishing you a wonderful week!

Adam: As are those of all decent people.

Lady M: Thanks for your posts! Your blog is one of my favorite recent discoveries.

Frankly, that picture represents how I've been feeling over the last couple of weeks -- not a happy time -- but it could stand for a lot of things.

Debra: Thanks -- glad to pass along the results of my weekly internetting.

Mary: Some pumpkin carvers are pretty imaginative -- and meticulous.

Sixpence: It's revealing that they need to maintain such rigid control over their students for fear of loosing them to secular culture (the fundie schools, not the chameleons).

Bruce: I can believe it. Some people just can't get the hang of computers.

Nonnie: Thanks for your post. As for the picture, it seemed fitting somehow. I currently have 35,541 pictures saved on my computer (plus another 15,000 or so on flash drives), so unless I made a note when I saved it, it's hard to remember where each one came from.

They say you are what you eat, and I guess that applies to dogs too -- maybe he's gradually changing color to match the treats.

I think that line about war and Americans and geography is from Mark Twain, but I'm not sure.

Trump is an iceberg capable of sinking a whole country, that's for certain.

Dellgirl: He was pretty pathetic. Did you notice his pants fell down as he was running out of the store?
