In a similar "vein" as the camouflaged beverage holder, here is a beverage can that is camouflage for something else:

A sign that your winter is too long

The Finger Lakes are lovely in the other three seasons.

That’s not a bookstore, this is a bookstore.

Oook!

Use of pepper spray brings forth tears, possibly laughter.

So if you storm a building and push people about there may be consequences? Who knew?

Sam

I see a lot of suspicious gum-chewing.

How can it be an "underground rave" if it's at Wembley Stadium?

Joan

New Year’s Eve mega-rave, Wembley Stadium, 1994.

*shudders*

JL

There is not enough money in the world to persuade me to watch that Wembley Rave video from start to finish.

And finally, why parents rarely want their children to be artists, part 12.

I have a list of artists I'd like to see trapped in a crawl space.

David

I have a list of artists I’d like to see trapped in a crawl space.

But… it’s “an introspective quest” because “the personal is political.” And because the purpose of being an artist is to “respond to political situations” and “effect change.”


How can it be an “underground rave” if it’s at Wembley Stadium?

I think by that point the word “underground” had come to mean “physically and psychologically unendurable without a great deal of chemical cushioning.”

Isn't Wembley where they have all those underground football matches?

David

Isn’t Wembley where they have all those underground football matches?

Heh. Yes, it’s all very hush-hush. It’s like Fight Club, but with knee socks and multinational sponsorship.

Sam Duncan

“Courtyard balcony of note.”

Yikes. Watch out for those hoppers, Freeman...

Another moment where you wonder if The Guardian has developed ironic self-awareness before realising that no, she's probably serious:

David

before realising that no, she’s probably serious

Ms O’Toole’s immense feminist wisdom has cropped up here before.

The Taming of the Shrew (aka The Shaming of the Vagina-Bearer) -- http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2012/may/21/shakespeare-universal-cultural-imperialism

Somebody should point that out, these days you can get stripped of The Guardian privileges for implying that women have vaginas.

That’s not a bookstore, this is a bookstore.

Oook!

Weeeeelllll . . . tactically, while noting that a librarian's extreme approval would be valid, that is indeed just a bookstore, where at least that library has unlimited space and tunnels through itself and other aspects of time.

dicentra

No better binomial than Upupa epops (except, of course, Dicentra spectabilis).

I also want an owl. They are, after all, just featherèd kittehs.

The Finger Lakes are lovely in the other three seasons.

Liar.

There are only two seasons in the Finger Lakes region: winter and the 4th of July.

Having spent 10 years of my life there (5 as an adult), I can testify to that reality.

Live view of Cornell U campus.

Live view of Sapsucker Woods pond (a few miles to the north of previous), where the famous Cornell ornithology lab is located. (The Great Blue Heron nest blew out of the tree last year, so the cam isn't trained on any birds in particular until the resident male decides to build anew.)

Best. Obama. Speech. EVAR!

Now if only he'd continue in that vein for the next two years...

Hal

Belated thought here . . . .

Use of pepper spray brings forth tears, possibly laughter.

So that leads to a Youtube clip, which itself credits the original article with video, which states that the occurrence was . . .

. . . a speech by Education Minister Christopher Pyne . . .

Mr Pyne was inside the centre delivering the inaugural Hedley Beare Memorial Lecture to educator groups on the future of teacher education in Australia.

. . . Going from what one sees at 0:54 or so . . . since when does one bring a carton of milk to, basically, merely a speech by some official?

Man, is that thing UGLY. And the little furry guy is hideous, too.
