This Is Why Pseudo-Scientific Crap Isn’t Harmless

http://www.ktvq.com/Global/story.asp?S=2748281 I am–if not tolerant of pseudo-science, at least I don’t go after it too much. Sure, I gripe at my mother for using homeopathic crap,* and I yell at the TV like nobody’s business, and whenever somebody comes up with “Oooo! Look! A new mammal!” on various forums, I’m generally in the dog-with-mange camp, […]

We….live…. Actually, not bad this time, no major crisis on our end, although our valiant cat-sitter found herself locked out after the landlady came in to open the pipes (to keep ’em from freezing) and locked the wrong lock behind her. But all’s well that ends well, the cat is fat, dumb and happy, we […]

Generally I am contemptuous of nativity scenes. Even without the religious overtones, I can only bear so much sentimentality, and even less shlock. However, I may have to change my mind.

I don’t really believe in interrupting continuity on an epic comic (I mean, gag-a-day, fine, no problem) so this is just a quick Christmas doodle of Digger, Ed, and assorted cast members, on galleries rather than in the strip itself. http://yerf.com/vernursu/ilikesocks.jpg And Merry Christmas to all! Die Natalis Solis Invicti! Atheist-children-get-presents-day! Y’all are cool, damnit.

It is entirely typical of my life that I spent a good chunk of the morning scouring the house looking for a rogue rubber chicken, while James questioned whether the rubber chicken had ever existed anywhere but in my fevered imagination. “I know it exists!” I said indignantly. “I had it when I was out […]

There was definitely stuff I was supposed to be doing, but I wound up painting this instead. Having vowed that I had no time to work on any complex art, I was naturally immediately seized with the need to do some. http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/13440558/ It’s Kathy and Carlota’s fault. We were at the coffee shop, I was […]

So does anybody know anything about this SheezyArt thing? I’ve poked at the site, and it just looks like a mini-DevArt. I’ve read two reports about it–one ban, one quit. Not a great track record. However, I’m always lookin’ to slap art somewhere…advertising, etc. Anybody have any experiences with ’em?
