I don't need another t-shirt, but if I did, I'd get this one. Cthulu and Hobbes!

Wow, the AP really annoyed the blogosphere with their stupid fee policy.

A fifth foot found on the BC Coast was quickly followed by a sixth foot, but the sixth turned out to be a hoax. Still, that's FIVE single feet washing up in the same area. An expert thinks they are all the result of the same accident.

Food portions are much larger today than in the past, which is contributing to our national obesity. One of the first things I did when I started my weight loss was lower my portion sizes, and learn how to eat only half a meal at restaurants.

Basement cat is coming for your soul.
