Pinned oot

I really need to get around to drawing a new profile thumbnail. Red hats really went out of style hard back in 2016.

I keep hoping they're going to come around again so I don't have to redraw it. I hate drawing.

A the beginning of autumn, I was dubious about the concept of "Pumpkin Hot Sauce", but now I'm sad I'm down to my last bottle.

How have I never heard of pumpkin hot sauce before this year?

I could have been eating this EVERY fall!

The assumptions here are a little loose, but it's still hilarious :

Apparently people on Twitter have discovered that there's a small but statistically significant rise in people giving scented candles a bad review because they don't have any scent.

You have to wonder if those people have also recently developed a dry cough and shortness of breath.

I have to admit, when I read about a vaccine, part of me thinks "A vaccine? But what about all these cool masks I own now?"

Remember when we still thought things like "Woah, the postman has to wear a mask and stay in a plexi-glass box? That's like something out of a movie!!"

Someone on Twitter pointed out that if/when Self-Driver cars become popular and cheap, some people will probably use them as offices.

Like people who like to do work on trains.

This strikes me as both horrible, and inevitable.

I guess these are targeted at people who think of the 80s and 90s as their parents' era?

I'm trying to imagine if I'd be more into it if the references were to, stuff like "I Love Lucy" and "Gilligan's Island".

I don't think so.

Seen on Twitter. This is supposedly from "Ready Player Two".

I think maybe I don't need to read this series of books.

I wish I knew how to solve a Rubick's Cube.

Sometimes I feel like I won't count as a REAL computer programmer until I've got at least three solved cubes on my desk.

Oh, man. Halloween costumes are a bottomless well of comedy.

Remember that part of the bible where Jesus is a grey old man?

But then what's THIS costume?

This is the Sexy costume, but in kids sizes!

They can't call it that, but it's clearly the same design.

So for whatever reason, I found myself browsing Ghostbusters Haloween costumes.

Of course they've got the 1984 version and the 2016 version in all sizes.

Then of COURSE they have the "Sexy" Ghostbusters' costume. (Which inexplicably includes a cap.)

If LavaLamps work because of the temperature difference between the top and bottom of the lamp, could you make a LavaAirConditioner?

Instead of heating the bottom, chill the top!

Huh. The city sent out pamphlets reminding us about the governor's order that Thanksgiving celebrations be ten people or less.

So, after being disappointed by that, I thought to myself "Maybe I can find an old copy of 'Mario's Cement Factory' on eBay!"

Turns out I'm not going to buy that either.

Nintendo's new Game&Watch could have been a nice bit of game-preservation and emulated all the old Game&Watch games.

But it doesn't. It's a NES emulator in a Game&Watch shell. That's like something you'd get for $14.99 on AliExpress!

Such a shame. I would have actually bought a Game&Watch nostalgia console.

When I die, I hope my tombstone gets a rhyming couplet about my mode of death.

Is that a real thing? Or is it only from Halloween decorations?

$3000 for 2 nights stay at the star wars disney resort I am not making this up
