a real-time map of tracked traffic;

Been noted before as I recall, but a real-time map of tracked traffic;

a guide to the five stages;

I've often noted such as also being the five stages of a hipster, with denial and anger being the most in use.

As a reaction of Ooooh, Nice!, and pulling from the (*#^$()_#^$ deaf page:

The Original 1969 Debut of the Classic Sesame Street Song ‘MANAMANA’’,

A Heavy Metal Cover of ‘Africa’ by Toto,

Street Artist Paints Fantastic Fake Shadows,

and When The Catnip Kicks In.

Lord Bob

Wait what's this about Guardian writers having friends?

Geoffrey

Oh god, that guys face... if he wasn't attempting to commit a felony, I'd feel sorry for him. Still kinda do to be honest, especially because he's so stupid he doesn't know how to spell 'hurt', and also because dear lord that face.

Still, my pity doesn't change that you forfeit your life when you threaten to steal from people.

Oh god, that guy’s face... if he wasn’t attempting to commit a felony, I’d feel sorry for him.

Yes, but would it count as an example of “social justice”? I mean, it seems pretty just to me.

David

Oh god, that guy’s face...

It reminded me of this equally uplifting moment.

This will not solve your problems.

Heh!!!

North Korea Kim statues

What?

This will not solve your problems.

Nino Mbatha, 32, Sthembiso Sithole, 31, Lindokuhle Masondo, 32, and Lungisani Magubane, 30, appeared in the Estcourt Magistrate’s Court on Monday morning on charges of murder and conspiracy.

Mbatha is believed to be a nyanga (traditional healer).

Pretty risky. If we recall, "nyangas" can throw lightning bolts at their enemies. If your "white science" says nonsense, it's wrong, and rayciss!

Elon Musk posts first photo of SpaceX’s new spacesuit

In totally unrelated and parallel news, the Weyland-Yutani Corporation has assured stockholders that rumors of the loss of a commercial towing vehicle and its cargo are totally unfounded. Unnamed corporation officials have stated that the mission of the USCSS Nostromo is "Priority One. All other considerations secondary." One of the current crew members is shown below to help confirm the lack of concern.

Funny story: a corporate ethics training video we were forced to watch some years ago had as its example corporation the "Wayland Corporation". As the examples of ethical breaches piled up over the 45 minute video, those of us of a more, er, classic cinemah persuasion were nodding knowingly to each other, wondering when they were going to get to the "you discover your department has been secretly smuggling unstable bioweapons with poor containment into the country. What do you do?" segment.

how to swear in sign language;

Looking forward to the next row with my (deaf) sister in law.

Looking forward to the next row with my (deaf) sister in law.

And once again I’m bringing people closer together.

BTW, what exactly is a "SECURITY LIASON" that this NYU dimwit claims to be?

Pro tip: if you're going to claim a title of authority, know how to spell it first.

Pat Sajak interviews Peter Robinson. Almost an hour. I was entertained. You might be too.

That would be a variation on the fellow who is an extreme fan of particular fabric, as demonstrated by the black t-shirt with bright red gothic font lettering which reads Satin Rules Over All!!!

Oh. In fact, see also.

Satan explains HTML using death metal.

Oh. Dear.

Well, yes, death metal, HTML, and the name "Satan" do indeed seem to be involved there.

This will not solve your problems.

But all cultures all equal.

Hardcore.

Simplified English?

I feel sorry for the poor soul who painted up his truck with such dire warnings. Undoubtedly, his brain is running him through non-stop waking nightmares about impending doom, and warning the rest of us is a desperate attempt to cope.

“Wait what's this about Guardian writers having friends?”

This show was trailed as “Marcus Brigstocke and his mate...”. I'm still trying to get my head around the idea.

“In totally unrelated and parallel news, the Weyland-Yutani Corporation has assured stockholders that rumors of the loss of a commercial towing vehicle and its cargo are totally unfounded.”

It reminded me more of Dave Bowman in the stargate sequence of 2001. It's that reflection, I think, because I'd forgotten that his suit was red. It definitely looks more like Ripley's.

why friends don’t let friends write for the Guardian;

This one could run and run.

That guy in New Mexico was lucky.
