A Piece of the Action

Sunday, September 30th, 2007

Yes, Krako, the Federation is just a protection racket.

Here’s an unrelated but classic episode lolcat

[Update:] Here’s another funny Trek Day article: A Conservative Trek. The dialogue is great:

Kirk: “Spock, what are the odds that another planet’s evolutionary process would not only yield bipeds who speak English, but wrote a complex assertion of individual rights on parchment?”

Spock: “Theoretically, it is possible, Captain.”

Kirk: “Well, that settles it; I’d best reorder their society with some overemoting.”

LOLthulhu combines cat macros and Cthulhu into, as the master would put it, “the slippery blasphemies that wriggled out of rifts in ocean’s floor.” I love the subtitle: CTHULHU FHTAGN CHEEZBURGER.

The Word is Arrrrrrrrrrrrr!

My Little Cthulhu

Cthulhu of the day: My Little Cthulhu, with victims! There’s also an angry version.

The Hex of the T

Tuesday, September 4th, 2007

Switchback suggests that someone has put a hex on the T, based on a bunch of late-August squishings and September getting off to a good start with two accidents on the Green line and one bus crash.

I’d say the squishings are typical for the season—this is your last chance to get out there and walk on the tracks in shirtsleeves (bonus points if there’s a third rail), and Massholes of both the pedestrian and vehicular persuasion are always getting in the way of the trolley. Eventually the survivors learn to keep off the tracks.

Think of the T as a Darwinian counterbalance to mandatory health insurance in Massachusetts.
