Mail-in ballots are still being counted. According to a report I read in the New York Times, Democrats were more likely to mail their ballots this year than Republicans. As long as the ballot...


Except to say, I mailed in my ballot in September, and was accepted back then. I had surgery to remove ingrown toenails this afternoon. One: Yes, I know that’s gross. Two, yes, like “knocked ...


I got the estimate of the damage from my mechanic. At least $1700. The steering link/column/whatever it’s called is apparently beyond salvaging, so he’s ordering new parts. I’ve filed a claim ...


I have no sympathy or pity for you. None. I have nothing in all this world for any of you, except my purest, utmost, completely unbridled hatred and contempt. Why? Because not ONE of you has ...


I LIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIIVVVVVE! As does the r/AskReddit survey! What’s the best game soundtrack from your childhood? At the very top, Super Mario 64 and Goldeneye. The music from the subterran...


October is the treasurer of the year, And all the months pay bounty to her store; The fields and orchards still their tribute bear, And fill her brimming coffers more and more. But she, with yout...


Phantom of the Opera was a rock opera in the style of Tommy. Directed by Ken Russell and all. I have to admit, I want to see this version. But in that universe, instead of Steve Harley, can we...


Why Orange Shitgibbon getting COVID is hilarious, ironic, and also why he isn’t worth anyone’s pity or sympathy. Bullet points: Orange Shitgibbon made fun of Hillary Clinton getting pneumonia o...


“ Friends, For about a minute today I found myself feeling sorry for Donald Trump. The poor man is now “battling” Covid-19 (the pugilistic verb is showing up all over the news). He’s in the hospi...


Helen Reddy, singer of “I Am Woman,” died yesterday. I hate to think that this is portentous, but her death, coming on the heels of Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s, just gives me a bad feeling all around. ...


I hate falling down internet rabbit holes. Since I have a boring, fairly low-effort job, and since this week has been extremely slow at said job, I’ve taken to watching longplays of different vid...


A liberal communications guru explains why playing into Trump’s demagoguery on the election or mass protests only helps his cause — and hurts Joe Biden’s chances of winning By Andy Kroll WASHINGT...

Friday in The Real Pretend Mulling

I was going to write something almost witty and possibly funny here about trying to quell the Drama Llama with “not tonight, I have a headache,” but… I found out that Ruth Bader Ginsburg died. Ju...


I’ve been watching longplays of my favorite Nintendo games for at least two weeks. Fun Fact: This game is the actual sequel to Super Mario Bros. But, as you might see from this video, Lost Leve...


So there’s this webcomic I read, The Jay Series (I will link to it, but be warned: This comic is not safe for work, life, the universe, or anything), and at one point, J. Grant suspended the stor...
