Popeye as a toddler and the exfoliating ursine.

POPEYE AND ADOLPH AND BEARS OH MY: The upcoming war over your Facebook password, a Darwin Award winner and other knuckleheads, the worst idea of the day, graphic mental disorders, exaggerated phobias, drone fail, and loads more. STRONG TO THE FINNITCH:


WTF OF THE DAY: This is a practice that needs to be stopped immediately. It is becoming common for employers, colleges and others to demand social media passwords from possible employees and students. This is unacceptable. Absolute defiance to this new trend is demanded.

NOPE: None that I can think of...

BUM RUSH: Not only have nine of his advertisers bailed on his show (and a few stations have dumped the program altogether) but Peter Gabriel has told Rush Limbaugh to stop using his music on the program. Then there's this woman. I've never given her a second thought and now what thoughts I have will not be complimentary. Congrats on that.


There's a pretty good chance that you've seen variations on the "Keep Calm and Carry On" poster on the interwebs over the past couple of years. This charming video explains the origins of the poster and its emergence as a net meme. I really need to visit this bookstore.

REALLY BAD IDEA OF THE DAY: Ugh. Really? Why? I predict it will last...one week. Yeah, sorry for that.

DRONE GONE WRONG: Bwa ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha oops...

BEAR CARE PRODUCTS: It turns out that bears have a better skin care regime than most dudes. And by bears, I mean actual in-the-wild bears, not the other kind.



Artist Patrick Smith has created a series which coherently explain some fairly  complicated mental disorders in these minimalist posters. The former art student in me really appreciates how clean and effective these are. You can see the rest over here.

DON'T BE LIKE THAT GUY: Drugs make you dumb, mkay?

THIS IS RELEVANT TO MY INTERESTS: Spiders look bigger than they actually are to arachniphobes.

THENANIGANS UPDATE: Apparently it's not just The Saints that are tainted by the NFL's latest controversy. This is ugly and it better be dealt with in a manner that sends a clear message to all parties.

BAD ROMANCE IN THE SCIENCE DEPT: I think this teacher gets it. Mostly.


HERO OF THE DAY: That's not a word I throw around lightly. In this case, it is much deserved. What a great story.

CONGRATULATIONS! Mission Accomplished. Here's your Darwin Award winner of the day.

HEY ALANIS: Now this is ironic. Anonymous members get a self-inflicted taste of their own medicine.



Anthony Kiedis needs to rethink this look. Immediately. He looks a little too much like Adolf Hitler in inappropriate extreme rave attire. Just awful. There are not enough words to describe just how bad this is.
