Sinfest borrows a riff from Whose Line Is It Anyway?.
Today I bought Devil’s Legacy, a reprint of my then favorite of Matt Wagner’s Grendel stories. The new color job and slick paper make the Pander Bros artwork even more hard-edged and vivid, unless my memory (of 1986) is what’s soft at the edges.
Bees may also provide a solution for navigating on Mars, where there is no GPS network or magnetic field to tell one pole from another. Bees use a combination of polarization patterns in the sky, landmarks, and distance traveled to navigate.
Is satellite-assisted navigation unlikely for Mars? How many birds does it take? If the flier gets even one fix a day, it can correct gross errors in dead-reckoning.
Everybody’s doing it.
Well, what shall I talk about first?
How about the last book I read? Yeah.
I learned roughly three things from It’s the Little Things: Everyday Interactions That Anger, Annoy, and Divide the Races by Lena Williams (Harcourt, 2000):
- Long un-kinky blond hair is a status symbol forever out of Blacks’ reach, and some resent seeing a White gratuitously flip such hair about.
- Because of the ‘boy’ thing, Blacks don’t take first-naming as a friendly gesture.
- You can write for the New York Times for 25 years without learning to use the parenthetical comma properly.
