I know a few people on my feed here were interested in this. Alas.

Damn you, global warming!

Bad news: it's on Facebook.

Good news: it's fmecking gorgeous.

h/t my wife (who isn't on this platform).

Great. This person is better at forking calligraphy than I am with a pen.


@Trevor Schadt This is my surprised face.

What Thora said.

Well, I might eat one.

My donut tolerance is 1 cake donut, plain or cinnamon sugar only. Don't drink much soda either.

For anyone in that general area with kids -- or even without -- if you haven't explored the Great Lakes Science Center (in Cleveland OH, literally right next door to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame) it's well worth your time. We ended up taking a spur-of-the-moment trip there on Saturday, and Bean had an absolute blast. Well worth the two-hour drive from Pittsburgh, especially since they have reciprocal membership with the Pittsburgh Children's Museum, so admission for us was free. ;) #science-museum #ohio #daytrips #cleveland #midwest #things-to-do-with-your-kids

Dungeons & Dragons never got a proper ending ... until now ... in a car ad.

It's fine. I'm sure it's fine.

This has never ended poorly in any piece of narrative fiction ever.

Scientists Modify Viruses With CRISPR To Create New Weapon Against Superbugs

Superbugs are bacteria that can beat modern medicine's most powerful drugs. So doctors are racing to find new ways to fight back, such as developing "living antibiotics."

Yeah, most people don't know that the vast majority of viruses attack other microbes. As I put it sometimes, Ambiguities are like microbes, the pathogenic ones steal the attention. People hear "microbe" or "virus" and they think "human pathogen". Like they hear "ambiguity" and think "conflicts of interpretations".

But that's just fiction stories. Nothing to worry about. ;-)

Because I am a #geekdad I bring you the following vignette from my brain:

Interior, Arkham Asylum examination room. Dr. Hugo Strange is discussing with an assistant the effectiveness of the latest series of "treatments" for his patient.

In the background, a familiar green haired individual sits in the chair, wispy tendrils of smoke rising from his frazzled hair.

And the following speech bubble, in wavering tone, in perfect Joker intonation:

"🎼 I feel better, so much better
Thank you, Doc, for taking all the ouches away... 🎶"

It's one of those days.

If I'm ever in a room and say
get me out of there because I'm about to hurt some feelings.

And if you ever herald a court by starting out with the same phrase, it will be the most awesome court, ever!

..if you ever opened Court with that phrase, I'd hope to see it on video...with a look of delighted shock on my face....


What Kind of Day Has It Been?

It took me until 11:00 this pruning to realize that my shirt was on inside out. 😅😅😅😴

The dude who invented auto-correct passed away last week. May he restaurant in peace.

Don't you wish you worked here, so this could be your lunch?


Where is "here"?

Dick's Sporting Goods Headquarters, Pittsburgh PA

I could do without the Pittsburgh part ;)

Well... can't help you there. :-)

Happy Birthday, Bean. You may never read this, but I love you with all my heart, and I am so very proud of you.

For those of you who have seen Endgame:

I got this today when asked to review a company with which we recently did business.
