#PHOTO Found this sign detailing "Rules Governing Behavior on US Postal Property" on the door of the downtown Post Office in Seattle. I don't know whether to laugh at how dense, small, and hard to read it is, or cry over the law school tuition sums I imagine the committee of lawyers who created this paid so they could sit in a room together crafting it. It works have taken less effort to write and read if they just copied rules from a kindergarten playground or the Ten Commandments...

I get the "No dogs allowed on grass" part of the sign, but the "This area provided for human use only" suggests behavior I'm not sure I want to see in public...

In fantasy and SF-themed art and games, females are often given ludicrously revealing "armor" that would see them dead or frozen solid within moments. Women fighters in reasonable armor is a blog dedicated to more practical-minded ladies of war.

Need an 8-minute frivolous diversion?

With my camera rigged up to the eyepiece of my spotting scope (with duct tape and adhesive putty), from my backyard I pointed it at Sunset Boulevard between Descanso (just out of view at the bottom) and the Maltman bend in Silver Lake (at the top) to timelapse capture the afternoon traffic flow.

Pedestrian hazard at 2233 1st Avenue in Belltown Seattle:

Construction on the now-foreclosed and abandoned site at 2233 1st Avenue left an open pit where the sidewalk use to be (see between the cones). It's been this way since June of last year. When I finally registered a complaint with Seattle's DPD today (http://web1.seattle.gov/dpd/complaintform/) they informed me, "No one's complained about this before; first time we're hearing about it..."

I find that hard to believe.

Ben Marks of Collector's Weekly says: "We just published an article on the origins of fake barf. Thanks to Mardi and Stan Timm, who are the foremost collectors of novelty gag gifts, we got the story behind plastic vomit, including behind-the-scenes photos from the Chicago factory where this infamous item is still produced."

H. Fishlove & Co.—and now Fun Inc., which bought the company in the ’80s—has kept a lid on the formula Irving came up with, the same way Coca-Cola guards its recipe and KFC protects its special herbs and spices.

“It is a secret recipe,” Mardi says. “But I think we know what’s in it. It’s got foam pieces cut up, and it’s got latex. But the actual recipe, nobody outside the company knows that.”
