Ode to Prickly Legs.


Thanks to my exceptional pals over here for the heads up!

INTO THIN AIR: This is turning out to be a deadly season on Mt. Everest. Yearly increases in traffic on the mountain along with hazardous conditions have combined to make the trek more dangerous than usual. If you haven't read Into Thin Air, Jon Krakauer's amazing book about one fateful expedition on the mountain, you really should. It is gripping stuff.

TO INFINITY AND BEYOND: The first private, commercial space capsule launched today with a payload headed to the International Space Station. This is a big deal.



WORST. PARENTS. EVER. At least for today. 


COULDN’T HAPPEN TO A NICER MORE DESERVING GUY: Rushbo is losing listeners right and left. Well, mostly right, if you get my drift.

STATISTIC OF THE DAY: We are eating ourselves to death. This is frightening.



THERE ARE TWO KINDS OF PEOPLE IN THIS WORLD: Sword stories*. They never let us down.

SNACK FOOD SCIENCE: Why you are powerless in the face of Pringles.

SMELLS LIKE STALE BEER AND NUTS: Peanuts, that is. What. The. Heck?



HOT TICKET OF THE DAY: This year's Austin City Limits festival is going to be terrific!

GRAMMAR MATTERS. Especially when it is permanent.

THERE IS A SPECIAL PLACE IN HELL...reserved for people like this guy. I'm pretty sure that Jesus would tell this guy to shut his festering gob.
