Re: Petty annoyances

Jeez the kids really have ruined everything. Called to get pizza delivered; it's one of those places where everything is some gourmet thing. I called to see if we could get a ham-and-pineapple, nope. This is the culinary equivalent of a civilization that lives in sky scrapers but no one remembers ho...

Re: Good Cover Versions

OMG I had that "They Went That-A-Way & That-A-Way" book when I was a kid.

Add fifty pounds of sauerkraut and 50 pounds of ground meat, fry it up in the worlds largest novelty frying pan, call it dinner. And I hope they have a big freezer.

The more these sorts of extremophile discoveries are made the more it seems incredibly likely that some basic form of life is actually very common on other planets.
