skullcrusher mountain

I made this half-pony half-monkey monster to please you
But I get the feeling that you donít like it
Whatís with all the screaming?
You like monkeys, you like ponies
Maybe you donít like monsters so much
Maybe I used too many monkeys
Isnít it enough to know that I ruined a pony making a gift for you?

–Jonathan Coulton, Skullcrusher Mountain

torture: it’s what’s for dinner

US PEOPLE: Torture is really really really really really bad, and we shouldn’t do it.

US GOVT: OK, makes sense. We’ll outlaw it from this day forward.

CHENEY: “Except when the CIA wants to do it”:

US GOVT: Yes, except when the CIA wants to do it.

US PEOPLE: Nooooo!

ORWELL: Oh, fer crissakes.

Hubble astronomers have recently “discovered two more moons orbiting Pluto”: Our icy neighbor has recently been criticized for not being too different from the big bunch of planetoids in the Kuiper Belt, so this new discovery might provide a new reason to call Pluto a real planet.
