My mother never forgave my father for killing himself, especially at such an awkward time and in a public park, that spring when I was waiting to be born. She locked his name in her deepest cabinet and would not let him out, though I could hear him thumping. When I came down from the attic with the pastel portrait in my hand of a long-lipped stranger with a brave moustache and deep brown level...

driveslow: it’s sad to see more and more people everyday lose their faith in God. have some courage, believe in something, if not the skies, at least in yourself. and yet, incredibly, some people find that to be one of the most hopefull, encouraging happenings in our world. i count myself among that number. i have hope in our collective lack of faith.

One Star Wars Geek Rant Leads to Another
raptorinside: getfood: Some hater ransacked my blog because I was sad that Mara Jade died and effectively displayed why I am not a true Star Wars geek. I would never be a true SW geek because I would never scour the blogosphere with the intent to engage in heated discussion about the legitimacy of Star Wars characters’ deaths, all the while defending the Star Wars conglomerate of novels and...
In base 10 a number is evenly divisible by nine if and only if its digital root is 9. That is, if you multiply nine by any natural number, and repeatedly add the digits of the answer until it is just one digit, you will end up with nine: 2 × 9 = 18 (1 + 8 = 9) 3 × 9 = 27 (2 + 7 = 9) 9 × 9 = 81 (8 + 1 = 9) 121 × 9 = 1089 (1 + 0 + 8 + 9 = 18; 1 + 8 = 9) 234 × 9 = 2106 (2 + 1 + 0 + 6 = 9)...
raptorinside: The other night, Omni and I were discussing trilogy titles for an anthology. Thought it would be cool to make the 3 titles a haiku. So I went to Sean’s book and found some hilarious possibilities. Came back to my computer tonight and found this message: omni (8:43): sooooooooooooooo i submitted an article to my boss for publishing on our lighting blog and he sends me back an...

I give you -Erleichda- “The word was a transitive verb, an exclamation, a command, of which an exact English translation is impossible. The closest equivalent probably would be the phrase: Lighten up!”

Im firmly passed the point where I can even really watch the earlier SP’s. I feel, like amost any good art, the artists have gotten better over time. The last five years are far superior to the first five, and i find it hard to believe anyone who asserts otherwise. But this is one of my all time favorite SP gags. One thats still funny today. WELL IT WAS ABOUT THAT...

So ill be getting regular tumblr blasts of photos of you roofieing the the...
“It kinda makes me uncomfortable when you…” I did not nestle those words in the scratchy bristle of other bequests. Didnt lash them to the leather of some nostalgic wedlock. Hardly even said them. Went so far as to transfigure a ‘you’ to a ‘ya’. Amputated it from the pulse of any pliant yearning like a matchflame in the shadow of a bonfire. I meant it as...

THEY’RE ALL THE SAME USERNAME AND...
