Linky post

  • Choose your favorite Afe song.

  • Remember that tomorrow is Audio Post Thursday.

  • Note to news writers everywhere: stop saying things just because it sounds good. If a guy commits a crime and then walks out of jail on a technicality, don't write "a judge may soon get tough on the repeat offender" in your lede. Clearly, no one is getting tough on him (whatever the hell that is supposed to mean), so don't write it. For fuck's sake.

  • Spot the winner: Nebraska resident Sherri Sullivan appears set to earn her seventh drunken driving conviction, having been caught again after celebrating the end of a 15-year license suspension that had come as a result of drunken driving convictions.

  • Ooh, classy.

  • Sometimes you just really, really want pancakes.

  • I think I speak for all of America, nay, all the world when I say: it's about damn time.

  • When Chuck Norris exercises the machine gets stronger.

  • Interesting (albeit pretentious) piece on English as the common language of Europe. The thing I take issue with is the assertion that it is a result of British stubbornness.
    No, I think we can take credit for that one, thank you. Americans are the ones who have spent the past half-century throwing around money and mass-producing pop culture. For better or worse, I'm pretty sure the U.S. is driving the dominance of the English language.

  • My wife's favorite player will captain the Wales rugby squad against Argentina. She likes him because she thinks he looks like a Hobbit. A 6-foot-tall, 242-pound Hobbit.

    He does look like a hobbit. I've never thought about it before, but he really really does!!!

    The machine is only stronger if it survives a Chuck Norris workout.

    He does kind of look like a hobbit, but only because we have seen the LOTR movies.
