Well, some public schools could do worse: Lovecraftian School Board Member Wants Madness Added To Curriculum

Quote
"Our schools are orderly, sanitary places where students dwell in blissful ignorance of the chaos that awaits," West said. "Should our facilities be repaired? No, they must be razed to the ground and rebuilt in the image of the Cyclopean dwellings of the Elder Gods, the very geometry of which will drive them to be possessed by visions of the realms beyond."

Gee, that American education is really miserable. :D

Uncomfortable Plot Summaries

Some are hilarious, some strike too close for comfort indeed. Some are just mean... and many are all of it. See for yourself.

What's on Earth tonight?

Courtesy of Strange Maps, a practical schema of what our alien neighbors see if they tune in to our primitive television signals. Look and see if anyone of them will ever choose to contact us. :D

Quote
The first tv images of World War II are about to hit Aldebaran star system, 65 light years [ly] away. If there?s anybody out there alive and with eyes to see it, the barrage of actual and dramatised footage of WW2 will keep them shocked and/or entertained for decades to come. Which is just as well, for they?ll have to wait quite a few years to catch the first episodes of such seminal series as The Twilight Zone and Bonanza (both 1959), just about now hitting the (putative) extraterrestrial biological entities of the Mu Arae area (appr. 50 ly). The Cosby Show, Miami Vice and Night Court (all 1984) should be all the rage on Fomalhaut (25 ly). Meanwhile, the sentient, tv-watching creatures near Alpha Centauri (4.4 ly), our closest extrasolar star, are just recovering from the infamous ?wardrobe malfunction? during Janet Jackson and Justin Timberlake?s halftime show during the 2004 Superbowl.

Melting Ice Caps Expose Hundreds Of Secret Arctic Lairs

"We always assumed there would be some secret lairs here and there, but the sheer number now being exposed is indeed troubling," said noted climatologist Anders Lorenzen, who claimed that the Arctic ice caps have shrunk at the alarming rate of 41,000 square miles per year. "In August alone we discovered 44 mad scientist laboratories, three highly classified military compounds, and seven reanimated and very confused cavemen. That's more than twice the number we had found in the previous three decades combined."

"This is no longer conjecture," Lorenzen added. "This is a full-blown crisis."

According to a Natural Resources Defense Council survey, 78 percent of sinister one-eyed industrialists based in the Arctic have been forced to relocate their powerful underworld shadow governments, with many now secretly orchestrating world affairs from dormant volcanoes on remote islands.

For the time being, most researchers have shifted their attention away from the ice caps and toward finding a way to contain the giant reptile monster Bizarricus, who was trapped in an ice floe by Japanese scientists in the 1950s and has now returned to teach the world a lesson about the folly of man

So I'll occasionally re-discover this particular blog, which always makes me die laughing. Every entry has just the right level of, "Oh dear Azathoth" and snark, so that it's always an entertaining read.

http://pipeline.corante.com/archives/things_i_wont_work_with/

This is a professional chemist, discussing the compounds that he flat refuses to work with. And why. Definitely a good read, even if you aren't a chemist (I know I'm not).

An excerpt:

Quote
This stuff was first prepared in Germany in 1932 by Ruff and Menzel, who must have been likely lads indeed, because it's not like people didn't respect fluorine back then. No, elemental fluorine has commanded respect since well before anyone managed to isolate it, a process that took a good fifty years to work out in the 1800s. (The list of people who were blown up or poisoned while trying to do so is impressive). And that's at room temperature. At seven hundred freaking degrees, fluorine starts to dissociate into monoatomic radicals, thereby losing its gentle and forgiving nature. But that's how you get it to react with oxygen to make a product that's worse in pretty much every way.

Hatsune Miku, of Vocaloid fame. She has one hell of a fandom, but if you aren't fairly heavily into anime-manga subculture, it's pretty easy to overlook Vocaloid.

That said, the image itself combined with the caption is what makes me laugh so much, not necessarily the fact that it's Miku.
