The stuff documented in yesterday's XKCD sounds like something a Fan would come up with on a Blue-Hair Day:

Quote:The flags were probably vaporized on impact, because we launched it before we had finished figuring out how to land. That makes sense from an engineering standpoint, but also feels like a metaphor.

The best part is, it was something that was done in real life!

I love the smell of rotaries in the morning. You know one time, I got to work early, before the rush hour. I walked through the empty carpark, I didn't see one bloody Prius or Golf. And that smell, you know that gasoline smell, the whole carpark, smelled like.... ....speed.

One day they're going to ban them.

Saw a tweet and thought of someone we know. The expression alone makes it... a nice little piece of fanart.

Lun.

Back on the water. Albeit, under tow

Back in the water again

There is, Another. Looks to be in a 'all parts present' condition, if not complete. A non-running project, if you will. Half-finished. Ran out of time and money

Spotted in a dig about the Fast and Furious series on Tumblr. I really wish I knew where the gifs are from:

You won't believe me. I looked it up to be sure.

They're actually from latest Fast and the Furious film.

See, it was Tumblr. I have no idea where half the stuff they get comes from and they often do intentional misattribution of .gifs.

But thanks for the info.

I... the Fast & Furious franchise is like someone's Hero-system superhero team concept was "skill and power FX must include cars (obvious, inaccessible focus), -1/2".
"It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it." - Aristotle
"Being told to be 'open minded' about something is usually a code for 'you're not going to like this, but I want to subject you to it anyway'. Conversely, being told that you are 'closed-minded' is generally a means of asserting that 'I don't like the fact that you're proving me wrong, so I will pretend that your failure to agree with my argument is a philosophical deficiency'." - RationalWiki
