Hovercats to the Rescue!


There is something so absurdly beautiful about this that I could just cry, except that I’m laughing too hard. Awesome.

I May Be In Trouble

Lust and Libraries

The word “pornography” comes from the mid 1800s and is derived from the Greek; porne meaning prostitutes and graphos, of course, referring to writing. Actually, porne is more literally “bought or purchased,” but the connotation is clearly toward prostitution [link]. Of course, modern parlance has warped the concept of pornography from “writing about prostitutes” to “images of gratuitous and often deviant sexual acts,” so there’s that. But the term has also been reclaimed for less X-rated purposes, such as the infamous Porn for Women book.

GIS renders up some pretty excellent images from Monday’s epic game vs. Virginia Tech. Without further ado, I present

Holy cannoli. Does anyone else think being #3 after the first game is totally and completely surreal?

Fun Stuff

I quite enjoyed today’s XKCD. The mouseover will haunt me for the rest of my days. What is it about that song, anyway? It’s ruined “Amazing Grace” for me forever, and now poor Emily….

And because it’s Friday, and we all need a delightful little diversion, I bring you a preview of next season’s Dancing with the Stars:
