Loose talk like yours lost the Minnesota Vikings four Super Bowls. They were obviosuly the best team in each case. You need to respect the normal superstitions of all decent people.

People should spend the next three weeks obsessively performing little rituals of their choice, avoiding all improper thoughts, and never saying the wrong thing.

You could be the butterfly that defeats Obama. Behave responsibly!

From the NYT: Cheney has abnormal heart rhythm.

I swear to god, if that fucker dies now, when it doesn't alleviate anything, I'll be so pissed.

2: John is right in 2. Also right when he observed that liberals tend to assume the future is not just somewhat predictable, but fixed and knowable, which makes us vulnerable to conservative reality-makers who will work to beat the odds because they don't pay attention to odds to begin with.

Salon recently published four ways McCain can still win. I've been reading things like that instead of the polls.

11. That's a pretty flufftastic article.
1. Crazy shit could happen and voters could change their minds!
2. I'm talking crazy shit! Like a terrorist attack!
3. Maybe the Erratic-o-Meter will roll over to zero if McCain keeps doing erratic shit!
4. McCain could bet the farm on crazy shit, then crazy shit could happen!

Krugman's Nobel Prize is NOT a catastrophe on the level of the Burning of the Library of Alexandria. RATHER IT IS akin to the ERECTION of an anti-library, a NEW LIBRARY of Alexandria, the sad waste of so much manpower to erect an edifice of LIES which so many cannot tell from the truth. I would rather see the library BURNED HONESTLY than a new liebrary erected and we all to stand prostrate kneeling before it and the ivory tower from whose head it sprang.

According to Brad DeLong's blog, the toxic dose of theobromine for the average person would come after eating a mere 22 pounds of chocolate (presumably in one day or a couple days ).

Let's not forget "The Lonely Robot" from the Future Bible Heroes. (Actually, it's pretty forgettable, but FBH is my favorite underappreciated Stephen Merritt band.)

I think they're the only underappreciated Stephen Merritt band. In that the Gothic Archies are deservedly unappreciated.

5pm picture, i like it
great mixes as usually, i've been listening to the guitar and jazz mixes on my ipod recently
from now it'll be a roboto-funky phase
when i flew last time i accidentally took off the headphones from my notebook in the flight salon and the music was crazy, people laughed and looked at me funny as if saying she doesn't look like she listens to this stuff
