And they are very hard to light, too.

Stick to cigars.

I just learnt that it is physically possible for somebody to say something SO very stupid, it causes physical pain.

The people closely associated with the namesake of female canines are suffering from a nondescript form of lunacy.

Seriously?
Son, I have a very much above normal IQ. I am well educated in many respected fields including the likes of History, Astronomy and the latest gossip of the Royal Family (true story).

I do not need to clutter my brain with such drivel as the origins of pop cultural memes and other assorted things the young people are into these days.
So when I accidentally learn such things that are apparently common knowledge it should not come as such a surprise that it has eluded my brain for so long when I direct my efforts to stare away from such things on purpose.

Today I learned that earmuffs is a stuck-up bitch, who sees himself floating atop of us, puny humans...

Who knew, and here I was thinking they were largely clumps of ice and rock.

Today I learned that the Croats are rather slow in the head if indeed Filox is just coming to this realization just now.

@Vera, Indeed. Been watching several episodes of QI. It's hosted by Stephen Fry so you know it's gonna be funny.
I haven't laughed so hard so many times in fucking ages. That show cracks me up so much.

I love this show. Have all epis of all series (the XL versions of the later series). Have the newest episode with Prof. Brian Cox all ready to be watched with a nice drink, when shit settles down a bit here (I want to be able to enjoy it fully). Never fails to cheer me up - the moment I hear the intro theme, I start smiling.

Absolutely! He seems lovely. And I love the way he talks, very calm, but also passionate about his stuff.

You should definitely check out this episode. Ben Miller is very much like him (he also was a scientist, who knew). And he's so passionate about science, without being annoying or smug (can't say I much cared for Sean Lock - I normally don't, man drives me mad - and how he would interrupt with his stupid attempts to hog the spotlight). A brilliant episode.

Yeah exactly.

That no matter what someone says - no matter how many laws are passed; we will never get rid of mass shootings. It's to late. With 3,000,000 + registered weapons in America and who knows how many aren't registered.

You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty. - Gandhi
