*score may be ridiculously overinflated for dramatic effect.

Too lazy to HTML that shit.

BriWi “raps” my favorite song.

THROW THE CHEESEBALL!!! #deweyadog #dachshund

Remember back when I had my appendix forcibly removed and I watched the first three series of “Downton Abbey”?


This is WAY better.

Eternally a classic.

"I’m Ben Small of the Coney Island Smalls."

Someone came home from school and promptly made themselves a sweatshirt nest. #DeweyADog #dachshund

“As I’ve fled from town to town, looking for a place where I might not be suddenly slain for no reason, the one thought that kept nagging me was, ‘How does Dick Cheney feel about all of this?’” he said. “I can’t tell you what a relief it is to know he isn’t losing any sleep.”

Weird Al’s “Word Crimes”, everyone.

Scientists Develop a Darker Black
Really dark black is apparently the new black. From The Independent:

A British company has produced a “strange, alien” material so black that it absorbs all but 0.035 per cent of visual light, setting a new world record. To stare at the “super black” coating made of carbon nanotubes – each 10,000 times thinner than a human hair – is an odd experience. It is so dark that the human eye cannot understand what it is seeing. Shapes and contours are lost, leaving nothing but an apparent abyss.
If it was used to make one of Chanel’s little black dresses, the wearer’s head and limbs might appear to float incorporeally around a dress-shaped hole.
Actual applications are more serious, enabling astronomical cameras, telescopes and infrared scanning systems to function more effectively. Then there are the military uses that the material’s maker, Surrey NanoSystems, is not allowed to discuss.

You can read the rest here. The obvious question is: how much more black can this be? And the answer is — none. None more black.

SCIENCE
