  1. “It's not safe out here. It's wondrous, with treasures to satiate desires both subtle and gross. But it's not for the timid.”
  2. Without Jerry Sloan, there would be no Stockton to Malone. With the possible exception of Lavell Edwards, Sloan is arguably the most important sports figure in the state of Utah's history.
  3. There's a documentary called "Zero Hour - Disaster at Chernobyl" that I have my students watch every year. It does a pretty good job of explaining why the incident with Reactor #4 was a cluster**** on multiple levels. tl;dw version: Poor initial design, built on the cheap, bureaucratic interference, safety regulations ignored or overridden for political reasons.
  4. I've been to EBR-1 where they have the engines on display.
  5. Yeah, every so often I'll see someone on The Book of Face post "Should Arabic numbers be taught in American schools?" and watch the Islamophobes and rednecks go berserk in the comments.
  6. I recently bought and installed Hero Designer. When I open a new character and select Sixth Edition superheroic, it defaults to 250 points + 100 points in Complications. It should be 325 points + 75 points in complications, right? What am I missing?
  7. Sub-Zero, because Bane sucks. Best COVID Mask II: Vigilante vs. Elektra
  8. Doubtful. Now that I'm done, Lady P wants to go back and finish her degree.
  9. Realistically, I have another decade before I can realistically consider retirement. Maybe I'll have some clue what I'm doing by then.
  10. Sounds like someone in my area was trying this b******t in a store that reopened this week. Business Stands By Policy After Maskless Customer Asked To Leave
  11. In short, this quarter has magnified all the things I hate find annoying about teaching--lesson planning, grading papers, meetings, answering e-mail complaints from parents, and so forth--while effectively eliminating the things I love about teaching, namely, my daily interactions with students and other teachers. On a scale of 1 to 10, I give this quarter an F.
  12. Meet The Trikini, A Bikini That Comes With A Matching Face Mask
  13. Despite mountains of evidence to the contrary, enough people believed that <insert name of political figure here> was going a good enough job to deserve 2/4/6 more years in office.
  14. I invented a new word today: Plagiarism.
  15. Remain locked inside and continue to refuse to interact with people, because you're an introvert and the last x weeks have been the closest thing to Heaven on Earth that you could have imagined.
  16. Um, okay... Wyoming strip club reopens with 'masks on, clothes off' party
  17. Q: Are there any cats on Mars? A: No. Curiosity killed them all.
