Zombie cheerleader says: "Rah rah rust!"

Zombie High motto is: "If we can't win using our brains then we'll use your brains!" ;-)

Context is a Lego cheerleader in a graveyard, among other topics

I think my bookshelves mostly convey the message "you need more shelves" and "apparently will read anything that stays still long enough."

is "is this a case for - the ponceyness police?"

[personal profile] owlbrigade1 cites this case in point:

Gotham police are at a loss to explain a sudden rise in animal themed costumed weirdos? Surely the explanation is the same as it is for the long standing animal themed weirdos? It is Gotham, it is what they do. People in animal costumes wreaking havoc is practically a city tradition.

Context, to no one's surprise, involves Harley Quinn.

So it appears that I'm going to be moving again in about two months. I'll save the whys and wherefores for another time, but in order to clear out things I don't feel like moving, and raise moving funds, I'm holding a virtual garage sale. If you're interested in any of the books of DVDs below, comment or PM me.

Marvel comics, literary criticism, and more. )

I am willing to negotiate on everything except the Stargate DVDs, which I have sentimental attachment to and for some reason am willing to part with, but only if they all go out together. Shipping is free in the US. I will send everything USPS Media Mail. If you're outside of the US, we can probably come to an arrangement.

[personal profile] brooksmoses has discovered the Hannover wurst

posted by [personal profile] conuly in [community profile] metaquotes at 09:13pm on 15/07/2017
Hannover wurst appears to be what happens is when you have the question of whether to have sausage or bacon with your breakfast, and you make the obvious-in-retrospect choice of "Both! At the same time!" and make sausage in part out of bacon.

Context, needless to say, is delicious.

If my brain put half as much effort into important things as it does into figuring out how fictional universes work, I might actually be able to make some progress in life.

Me: What should I do about this housing situation? Should I move or shouldn't I?
My brain: Dunno, but you know what could explain instantaneous Vulcan telepthy across light years? Quantum entanglement.
Me: Um, thanks?

Yay I actually know what happens next!

I need a nuclear physicist.

Or an astrophysicist.

Anyone with 'physicist' in their title could answer this question, but my Google-fu is failing so hard.

I really don't want to Google 'how to jury rig a nuclear weapon'.

I can't kill the baby.

I killed an infant once before and if I do it again, people are going to wonder about me.

There is no way for that baby to make it out alive.

I have no idea what happens next.

[personal profile] playswithworms has found a non-patriarchal reason to shave ones armpits

posted by [personal profile] conuly in [community profile] metaquotes at 09:09pm on 10/07/2017
When you have a non-releasable raccoon baby that you're trying to socialize and get her used to humans and handling, and she *loves* to stick her nose up your sleeve and try to chew on your armpit hair.

Context is really good advice for people with pet raccoons.

When was the last time you saw a bloke about to aim his spaceship towards noble sacrifice stop to cry about never having had children?

... arguably Picard, but, it is not generally a genre feature

unless women.

Context would like a warning label for fics with "women, written by men, who think they need a reason."

[personal profile] catwalksalone has a lava floor

posted by [personal profile] conuly in [community profile] metaquotes at 02:44pm on 10/07/2017
I made it!


Sadly, my left foot was lost in a floor lava touching incident, but with immediate amputation we were able to save the rest of the leg. Don't know how I'm going to explain THAT at work tomorrow. "Sorry, I can't drive my car, I lost my foot in an imaginary incident involving non-existent lava." I don't think there's a Health and Safety Policy for that.

Context does understand about convection, thank you.
