LAZY_TITLE

"One woman, who prudently chose to remain anonymous save for
the sobriquet “Doughnut Lady,” revealed to
Hongoltz-Hetling that she had taken to welcoming bears on
her property for regular feasts of grain topped with sugared
doughnuts. If those same bears showed up on someone else’s
lawn expecting similar treatment, that wasn’t her problem.
The bears, for their part, were left to navigate the mixed
messages sent by humans who alternately threw firecrackers
and pastries at them. Such are the paradoxes of Freedom.
Some people just “don’t get the responsibility side of
being libertarians,” Rosalie Babiarz tells
Hongoltz-Hetling, which is certainly one way of framing the
problem."

her next-door neighbor needs to build a nuclear reactor in
his shed like that bloke a few decades ago. the bears and
the radiation should cancel each other out

its kind of funny they want to go back to the bronze age but
without the altruism or commons sense.

There was a boy scout in the UK who tried to do it, once a
generation you get a highly intelligent child (not
intelligent enough to not do it though) who tries to do it
after reading a textbook

Pease heard one resident claim to have awoken late one night
to see the potting shed emitting an eerie glow. “I was
pretty disturbed,” Pease recalls. “I went inside and
called my husband. I said, `Da-a-ve, there are men in funny
suits walking around out here. You’ve got to do
something.'”

But June 26, 1995, was not a typical day. Ask Dottie
Pease. As she turned down Pinto Drive, Pease saw eleven men
swarming across her carefully manicured lawn. Their
attention seemed to be focused on the back yard of the house
next door, specifically on a large wooden potting shed that
abutted the chain-link fence dividing her property from her
neighbor’s. Three of the men had donned ventilated moon
suits and were proceeding to dismantle the potting shed with
electric saws, stuffing the pieces of wood into large steel
drums emblazoned with radioactive warning signs. Pease had
never noticed anything out of the ordinary at the house next
door.

small bedroom, where the shelves are still lined with books
such as Prudent Practices for Handling Hazardous Chemicals
in Laboratories and The Story of Atomic Energy."

"David was not deterred. One night as Ken and Kathy were
sitting in the living room watching TV, the house was rocked
by an explosion in the basement. There they found David
lying semiconscious on the floor, his eyebrows smoking.
Unaware that red phosphorus is pyrophoric, David had been
pounding it with a screwdriver and ignited it. He was rushed
to the hospital to have his eyes flushed, but even months
later David had to make regular trips to an ophthalmologist
to have pieces of the plastic phosphorus container plucked
carefully from his eyes."

lool fucking hell

"Both Patty Hahn and Michael Polasek admired David for the
endless hours he spent in his new lab, but neither of them
had any idea what he was up to. Sure, they thought it was
odd that David often wore a gas mask in the shed and would
sometimes discard his clothing after working there until two
in the morning, but they chalked it up to their own limited
education"

"Michael says that David tried to explain his experiments
but that “what he told me went right over my head.” One
thing still sticks out, though. David’s potting-shed
project had something to do with creating energy. “He’d
say, `One of these days we’re gonna run out of oil.’ He
wanted to do something about that.”"

this article is funny as fuck

oh, word has it prince was cut off from his proper
cvs/walgiggers shit by his minders somehow and they found
counterfeit percocet stashed all over; actually fentanyl.
some would be weak as shit, others would be a one-pill
overdose. man was an opiate addict for the entirety of his
career but just goes to show you can know your levels
extremely well and unreliable shit can rapidly make that
meaningless. in general it's a good idea to avoid any drug
that can suppress breathing in large doses. but then the man
did shit like this and maybe it's the
philosopher's stone or some shit, ask artie lang, i dunno

things can be sad and funny at the same time definitely, its
black humour isn't it, the absurdity of a boy scout
attempting the build a nuclear reactor in his parents shed
is very funny, its simultaneously fucking sad what happened
to him in the end of course

the caller that the cat would probably make its own way down

i've been on TV quite a few times, actually. the first was
was a public service fire safety commercial. if anyone can
actually dredge that up, please send me a copy

hmm, heh. never really told this story before, come to think
of it

commercial was being filmed in the fire station, and the gag
was i would introduce fire officer cani... canel... i just
couldn't get the guy's name right. each take he would slide
down the fireman poll and it's like we were caught in a loop
and people are giggling but i am internally stressing this
quite much

my memory is somewhat vague from there, given this is
approximately thirty years ago. there was someone wearing an
entire string of christmas tree lights, and i can't remember
if it was me or someone else -- but i do remember, when i
finally got over my fumbles, half of the bulbs spontaneously
conked out during the delivery of the lines and this was
universally lauded as a success. given all this, i suspect
it was me draped in light bulbs like a christmas tree. but i
really can't remember

this town sounds right like out of a John Irving novel. im
intrigued to pick up the book but its kind of weird as it is
describing real events. the author sure seems to have the
wits though.

it's impossible to even see a doctor on a basic level right
now and there's this thing on my neck. is it a freckle or a
wart or is this fucking cancer? and it's so fucking
impossible to even get an appointment. i've just opted to
carve it off with my fingernail and now there's blood all
over. it may be cancer. nice knowing you all

it's bleeding, that's a good start, right? that means i've
got it on the defensive
scrub with a paper towel and not let up
if i were going sandpaper i'd need about 30 grit

a crisp and clear thot is that mastering drives me
absolutely fucking insane, and i'd pay someone to do it
right if i could, but i really can't. and i'm sitting on
like four albums that break out into ten EPs with remixes
and it's just too much fucking effort to release if i'm
going to die of a bleeding neck tumor because it's
non-essential surgery

no, the hospitals are so slammed due to omicron, while half
the hospital staff is out due to omicron and they're saying
stuff like "the ER is still open but expect to wait about
fifteen hours"

i suppose i'm quite lucky. i need to get this thing on my
neck looked at, and i can't right now because omicron, but i
think that's partly why it's bothering me so much. because i
have to just fucking accept it right now. and i could be
someone with a tumor whose surgery has been pushed back four
months. really a thing

thankfully, omicron seems to be waning
