Abraham Link-oln

June 15, 2009

Welcome to a new feature at Is It Luck. From now on, I will from time to time post a bunch of links to whatever I feel like. Feel free to post your own favorite links, too. Comments containing URLs are sent to me for moderation. I will approve pretty much anything that isn’t porn.

It’s a secret to everybody. If you burn down my door, I’ll fucking give you money.  You son of a bitch.

Is Jew Watch a bunch of rambling anti-Semitic nonsense that blames the Jews for everything from – I shit you not – the American Nazi Party to the September 11, 2001 attacks? Yes. Is “Jew Watch” a really funny name? Yes.  Stunning web design, too.

Speaking of 9/11.  Northy and Southy are the constituents of the Soft 9/11 Sculpture.  They’re cute!  They’re horrifying!  To be honest, I am still not sure how I feel about them.  To be even more honest, it doesn’t really matter how I feel about them.  No one asked.

Some really gross canned foods.  I love Oddee.

Wolfram Alpha is a newish search engine.  It does complicated things.  For example, when I asked it to multiply the populations of Ashtabula, Ohio, Washington, D.C., and Junction City, Texas, it came back with this:

Help! Help! Wolfram Alpha Ate My Balls

It’s a really useful site, and I understand the heuristic at play above, but if you ask a stupid question, you’ll get a stupid answer.

I love The Onion with all of my heart, all of my soul, and all of my might.  I can never quite tell if I prefer their coverage of the big stories or the little stuff.

    Re: Gross Canned Food

    1. Canned rattlesnake. Most canned rattlesnake I have seen is actually a joke. When you open the can and BAM out pops a snake that is really a giant felt covered spring.

    2. Canned duck fat. Why is that even gross? We see lard here in the us? So pig fat okay duck fat gross?

      1. I have eaten rattlesnake. Not sure if it came out of a can, but it wasn’t bad.

      2. No. Lard is gross, too. I don’t think duck fat is any worse than lard, just slightly exotic. What would really push the limits of this is if they were cans of housecat fat.

        Housecat fat would be disgusting…but only cuz it is not an animal I eat.

        ALSO lard is delicious. I dont’ care what you say. I actually have a can in the fridge right now. (but i do not eat it straight that would be gross)

        I am not saying lard is either delicious or not; I have never used it myself, so I don’t really know what it does to food. All I am saying is that it’s a gross idea. Duck fat is gross, pig fat is gross, cat fat, bat fat, rat fat and elephant fat are all gross. I think they’re more or less equally gross when you get right down to it.
