Spooky Kids and a Dappered Papa.

BAD DAY ON THE BRIDGE: Whaddya think? Shop job? (source)

NIGHT WITCHES: No, not a Halloween costume. These Russian women were the most bad-ass pilots of WWII. There are other you-have-got-to-be-kidding-me details to be found over here.

WORKMANS COMP: Somethings can't be replaced and no amount of insurance will bring it back. Also, owie owie owie.

CHEATERS GONNA CHEAT: California discovers that recycling is more expensive than they thought.



REAL LIFE BOND GIRL: While we are highlighting bad ass women from history, let me introduce you to Winston Churchill's favorite spy. Impressive.

A WHOPPER OF A FISH STORY: Laziest. Man. Ever.


PAPA @ 16:


Earnest Hemingway on a ship at sixteen. Someone please explain how we went from dressing like this to what passes for acceptable street wear circa 2012. Because I am rather bummed that I missed all of that. Dappered.

WAIT, WHAT? Think you're doing the environment a favor driving that electric car of yours? Think again. Also, D'oh.

BLOWING SMOKE...up your hind end. What people used to do once upon a time. Sheesh.


DON'T PUT THAT IN YOUR MOUTH: Usually one need not warn people about the eating live bugs. Usually.

YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME: Ronald Reagan is not just rolling in his grave. He's shaking Lincoln, kicking Theodore Roosevelt, and giving Eisenhower a wedgie. What the hell is going on with the Grand Old Party? What happened? This. And this.

HEADS WILL EXPLODE: Oh boy. Some people are going to have a huge problem with this. And yes, that pun was intended, thank you very much.



Meet the Idolomantis diabolica, or Devil's Mantis. Yikes. Also, rad as hell.
