Just told a coworker that ebola has killed the same number of people in the US as vending machines, which has had the unintended consequence of making them now afraid of vending machines.

When recursivities and I go to a renn fair we usually take bets or establish what we think will be there in terms of ‘most out of place costume’. Usually it is a smattering of ‘Time Traveling Trekies’ or if you a lucky a Marty McFly. Today apparently was ‘wrong day’ at the renn fair, and we saw to name a few:

  • A half a dozen Doctors, mostly 11s but a few 10s
  • Thing One and Thing Two
  • An entire squad of storm troopers
  • A deadpool in a kilt
  • Starbuck from BSG
  • Judge Dred
  • A lady in full SG-1 garb complete with a Jaffa staff weapon
  • 2 Borgs
  • Khal Drogo
  • The Joker (he was actually handing out flowers, if you were brave enough)
  • 2 Ghostbusters
  • An Angry Birds pig

Fuck yeah I love nerds sometimes.

The environmental impact of oysters, in one photo
The water in both tanks came from the same source. The one on the right has bivalves. Not only do oysters naturally filter the waters in which they live, they can even protect humans from destructive hurricanes. For more, read about New York’s efforts to bring back oyster populations in the once-toxic Hudson River.
Delicious AND helpful. Who knew?

When I was in elementary school we went on a environmental science trip to the Cheasapeake Bay to help seed the oyser beds. And by that I mean they let a bunch of kids throw oyster shells off the side of a boat. It was awesome.

Coworker: Why do you think they are turning off the power to the building?
Me: Don't know, probably maintenance.
Coworker: Could you stop them if you wanted to?
Me: .... how exactly would I stop them?
Coworker: You know by doing your computer thing.
Me: My computer thing is no match for what is likely a comically over-sized 'OFF' lever.
Coworker: Oh. Yeah probably not.

Seriously having trouble differentiating between e-mails from Obama, the DNC, etc and porn spam. Here are some titles, you be the judge:

  • Don’t wait any longer:
  • Real quick
  • Fwd: I need your help
  • Really damn close
  • I’m relying on you
  • Can we talk?
  • Fwd: Do this for me
