Caffeinated shaving cream.

Needs more.

A brief history of modern art.

Ehn. Dada would be a broken tea cup.

That Peek-a-boo fence fairly screams "cat entrance here" or at least a handy escape hatch.

The rubber-band gun's engineering is highly creative.

How is it that Indians don't feel any compunction in admitting they don't want to live next to someone of a different race?

Pete of Perth

I wonder if the racially intolerant map will be updated after the current onslaught occurring in Europe?

They grow up positively accepting concepts of caste.

Racism is the least of it. They're not that fond of most of their own race.

Too much time on my hands...

Did we do the dream-dogs last week?

Also, as to the somewhat-interactive life-span visualizer - The XKCD-store will soon introduce this neat Christmas Calendar;

A perfect gift for that special someone who thinks he is immortal.

Tomorrow we'll have sheep-in-cabbage, because it's that time of year again, yehey!

Did we do the dream-dogs last week?

I think I’d remember.

A perfect gift for that special someone who thinks he is immortal.

I wonder how differently people might live if they were more regularly aware, and vividly aware, that a countdown is underway.

One of our regulars, David Gillies, is quoted, approvingly, over at Samizdata.

Rob

Who would have thought that the West, far from being the worst racists in the world as the Left continually claims, is actually the least?

The lost tunnels of Liverpool.

Made by people trying to escape.

DH

They grow up positively accepting concepts of caste.

We took a tour of India a couple of years ago. One of the most amusing aspects of this trip was watching a young Guardian type couple's brains short circuit every time our Brahmin guide demonstrated his haughty contempt for anyone who wasn't either within his caste or white.

So they're building the whole ship?

So they’re building the whole ship?

It’s a work in progress, but yes, that’s the plan.

Oh that’s precious. And this one...

Where to start...?

jabrwok

Oh that’s precious.

What is *up* with those stupid nose rings? Are these women (and I'm seeing it more and more at the school where I work) declaring themselves chattel property? Do they not realize that nose rings are used to control livestock?

For that matter, how much snot gets stuck on those things?

People are weird.

R. Sherman

You Suck At Cooking.

Presentation is the key.

David

Presentation is the key.

I tried hard not to laugh but surrendered when the whole thing started to violently rotate. Which is what you look for in a meal.

Isn't the woman with the iphone trolling liberals? If you follow the link, she turns out to be a libertarian making a satirical point..I think..

David

Isn’t the woman with the iphone trolling liberals?

Ah. It’s so hard to tell where the parody ends and the real joke begins.

K. Donnelly

Well I've often wondered if the Laurie Penny types are just conducting an ongoing situationist prank. It's hard to rationalise it all otherwise.

Indians may be less fussy about admitting their racism than other nations. That's the bias built into the survey: what people are willing to say to a pollster, let alone themselves.

dicentra

Well I've often wondered if the Laurie Penny types are just conducting an ongoing situationist prank. It's hard to rational<== THERE'S YOUR PROBLEM ise it all otherwise.

There's nothing rational about what they're doing, there's nothing rational in their aspirations, so there's nothing rational about trying to pound that square peg into a rational round hole.

Chester Draws

True Dicentra, but in practice the West IS less racist (except France, which in my experience should be that red colour).

A better measure is "Are you friends with someone of a different race" and "Have you invited a person of a different race to your house".

The numbers will be low most places, but higher in the West.

And yet, there appears to be so many who are deathly serious ...

There is no "female sex".

Coercively gendering biology is violence. Trans women are not "male bodied". You're assuming you know a trans woman's biological features, for a start. Some trans women have penises, some have vaginas, some have other genitals. Some trans women have oestrogen dominant hormone profiles, some have testosterone dominant, some have other hormonal makeups. Some have boobs, some don't. But in all cases, they are women, they are female, and therefore - as long as they choose to define themselves as such - they are female bodied.

I'm not advocating for every lesbian to be forced to have sex with a trans woman, no matter what her biology. I'm saying that anyone who automatically writes trans women out of their potential pool of people to be sexually attracted to, whilst being attracted to cis women, is a transmisogynist. You're making assumptions about trans women's bodies.

One learns new words everyday ...

“You’re seriously making all women look like crazy bitches.”

Amen, sister.
