Comic book monkeys

Older comic books used to have advertisements for exotic pets, and monkeys were a common one.  Here's a story from someone who actually bought one of those monkeys.

We're number one! We're number one!

For sentencing teenagers to life in prison...I'm gonna take a wild guess and say Philly is to blame.  This information came from Human Rights Watch, unsurprisingly.  Liberal hand-wringing is sure to follow. 

Basically the reason is because PA is pretty rigid in sentencing for first and second degree murder, even if you are young.  I wonder how long it is till PA lefty politicians start calling for reduced sentences for teenagers who commit these crimes?

I just bought the two coolest things ever

In keeping with alexthechick's goal of turning this into a clothingblog, I must share two new purchases.  The first is courtesy of Ronald Reagan:

The second, I think, epitomizes one aspect of the Ace of Spades Lifestyle....hiding from the outside world:

Sorry for the light posting

Sports.  Go Bears.  Go Cubs.

Umm... Rant coming tomorrow.  I had a text-editor malfunction. 

Go Bears (who cannot hope to win).

I told you, all shoes all the time

First, I would like to thank The Academy doubleplusundead for graciously extending the invite to post here.  I promise not to abuse this power.  Much.

Second, I did warn you about the shoes.  Technically boots in this case, but whatevs.

Cruella

I want those like burning.  Some of us consider Cruella De Vil a role model, you know.

Third, it's so nice to know that now I'm not just known as that bi chick who is terrified of spiders and clowns but I'm now known as that bi chick who is terrified of spiders and clowns and does anal.  My mother would be so proud.  

Patience and lube, people.  Patience and lube.  Diamonds are also useful, just sayin'.

My very first conspiracy theory!

Earlier today, Barack Obama urged people to watch the debate on CNN (h/t):



And now this.  In a post entitled "Obama Won," Quin Hillyer writes (emphasis mine):

Two caveats: First, because of some incredibly bad transportation luck, I missed the first 17 minutes of the debate, so if there were knock-out blows during those 17 minutes, I missed them. Second, I cheated: I watched very closely the CNN response dial. The dial clearly showed that Obama won. And the dial matched my impressions.
I want to know who was in those focus groups, and how "independent" they actually are.  Hey, I'm just "raising questions."

Mental health break

With the economy nosing us down the path to a future where we're all wandering the desert in spiked hockey pads and Captain Bullshit apparently gaining in the polls, you may be tempted to crack open your neighbor's skull and feast on the goo inside.  In other words, it's time to take a deep breath, utter a "Serenity Now" or two, and chillax.  And I'm here to help you do just that, with...bunnies!

I'm No Economist

And reading Megan McArdle over the last few days really drives the point home.  Also, it makes me pretty sure I was wrong when I said the government shouldn't get involved in this one.  It is one thing to stand on principle and object to writing blank checks to failing businesses but another to give large loans (in effect) to businesses that will probably be able to repay them in the middle term.

Anyway, read basically everything on her site if you are curious about the current financial situation and feel like being overwhelmed by economics.

Correction:  After being told what's up in the comments, I have to suggest that Megan McArdle (and the entire Atlantic Magazine) be added to the DPUD banned website list.  I read MA since she started and always found her writing thoughtful and well-informed but in the last several years her writing on politics has strayed further and further from reality.  Now, Gabriel informs me that she's parroting that ridiculous Trig Trutherism horseshit on her blog.

It is always very disappointing when someone you respect lets you down.

I'm looking at you Bill O'Reilly & Lou Dobbs

One of my newest pet peeves is having people declare that I'm not "fair minded" or "able to think independently" because my political positions are based on a guiding political philosophy, rather than however I feel at any particular moment.

Germany Has Thrilling New Vacation Spot

alexthechick is not amused:

Millions of spiders have colonized the HafenCity revitalization of Hamburg's old port district, daily Berliner Morgenpost reported on Monday. Some windows alone are infested with more than 700 creepy crawlers.

The carefully planned district is chock-full of angular modern architecture with plenty of nooks perfect for the larinioides sclopetarius. The spiders seem to like the district so much that they appear to be taking over one of Europe's largest building sites, according to the paper.

“They are the rats of the spider world,” biologist Anja Nioduschewski told the paper. HafenCity is financing the doctoral student's research into the arachnid problem.

The spiders can grow up to four centimetres long and they spin large webs to catch their prey. Nioduschewski is researching whether two different light treatments will scare other insects away, removing the spider's source of food. But so far, neither treatment has worked, she said.



I wonder if the circus is in town.

Public service announcements can be so cruel

Should I be worried that my teevee has begun ridiculing me by name?

Does anyone know where I can find a full version of this song?

Sorry to hijack the blog like this*, but must find the full version of this song:



I loves me some Cat Power, and I loves me some David Bowie.  This song doesn't seem to be on iTunes and I've got all of Cat Power's albums....a little help?

*Actually I'm not.  Not one bit.
