britpoptarts vents about clueless emails she gets, and appends the following footnotes:

* If you are a Mormon, I apologize. I know the polygamy thing is no longer the default setting for you guys. I've worked with Mormons before, and they were nice folks, but, honestly, I have no idea how you folks survive without the delicious caffeinated beverages.

** Attention, Gentle Readers: A representative from Awesome Nerds Anonymous protested their good name being besmirched by Dullard Dumbfuckistani #2, so a reference to him being a "nerd", which was entirely too complimentary, has been upgraded to the much more accurate "fuckwit". Management hopes this editing decision does not cause you undue hardship or confusion. Thank you.

The Truth About Chartreuse!

caelum has the inside scoop on the lineage of the color chartreuse:

To be a huge nitpicky bitch, the color's actually chartreuse, which is the bastard child of yellow and green, but green can claim he knows nothing about it because the kid is mostly yellowish.


Context is responding to a fanfic rant about Transformers color schemes. QWP.

I hereby decide that my single goal in life is to be really cool and famous.

X-Comix

[info]chaoswolf1982 muses on the state of the X-Men comics' habit of killing off characters only to resurrect them five seconds later (this is the entire post).

Eventually, Xavier's gonna get tired of re-burying Jean, and just wrap her in tinfoil and shove her in the back of the fridge next to the leftover turkey loaf. She can dig her own way out later.

vee_fic is having soap opera memories:


Dude! I remember him! Chiefly because he was a cop, and had to do cop things, even though halfway through being a cop he [the actor] broke his ankle and was on crutches. So the poor cop was crutching through the snow looking for an abandoned mineshaft into which his beloved had somehow fallen or been secreted, and I remember thinking "You know, I think this script could have made more sense."

(On the same show, some villain doctor threw out his shoulder, and had to wear the kind of brace that looks like a cross between a girdle and a strait-jacket, so his arm was immobile, for weeks. He had to do all his villainy one-handed! It was hilarious villainy.)






QWP; context excels at spotting That Guy.
