Weekly randomness

Walrus plays peek-a-boo:

You can find everything on the net, even comments from someone who claims to have snogged Polly Jean Harvey, which I’d have kept quiet about myself, for fear of having my legs broken my enraged fanboys. Apparently, too toothy.

I just like Kimonogirl’s heading

Word of the week – “metallosupramolecular”

From a post on being green:
“I used an obsidian knife to clean the road kill antelope on 267. The meat is drying in the sun. Gonna drive the Suburban up and fetch another when the time comes.” – I think that’s sarcasm. I hope that’s sarcasm.

“Denmark’s animal bordellos reportedly draw Norwegian clients” Argh! You sick f.cks! SFW, though not safe for kittens.

Beedogs! Why?

          Yeah, its like a competition for who can add make the strangest polymer without a saturated carbon in the backbone.

          I still think they need to get a phosphorous and a silicon into the backbone as well, just for the hell of it. And maybe a boron, just for showing-off.

            Are you just saying that cos I’m trying to make a silicon-substituted phosphine-borane at the moment and failing miserably?

            I think they should add niobium, everything’s better with niobium.
