A few days have passed, but I can't get this dino comic out of my head.  I'll take that as a mark of a good issue.
Congratulations Lori!  We Minnesotans welcome you.
Happy Thanksgiving!
You're probably familiar with Easy Cheese.  Probably somewhat less familiar with the analogous product for pancakes:
I'm falling behind a bit on my one-a-month SVG drawings, but I claim to be a little distracted lately.  I offer you the latest, Sine Tree.  (As usual, comments are welcome.)
Haunting dunes on Mars, taken by the HiRISE camera on the Mars Reconnaissance Orbiter.
The precise rules of the Jeopardy! buzzer device has a complicated history.  I had no idea.
Carrie Brownstein (of Sleater-Kinney) is writing a music weblog for NPR.
I guess I should add that I probably won't stay on the topic of music.

It's very likely that I'll contradict myself.

I wear the same thing almost every day.
While spending time at home, I've taken up the project of scanning all my photo negatives, for longevity.  Here are some of my public-consumable photos from Gustavus, post-tornado.
Tutankhamun's face revealed to the public (for the first time, [not a pretty sight]).
If only English class could have been this Fantastic.  (Google reader now reminding me to read Dino Comics.)

Have I mentioned how much I like funny pictures of food on the internet?
(via... Peter...  I have no shame.)
Failures in contextual advertising:
The Dutch invaded England in 1688.  And took the throne.

The EDGE World Question Center asks, "What is your formula? Your Equation? Your Algorithm?"

My favorites:
Amazon's infamous 1-click patent is rejected by US patent office.  (Infamous for being so obvious and unpatentable.)
Best Buy's currently prominent spokesperson is named Brian Lucas.  (This took me by surprise on the radio today.)
It's probably time to learn a whole lot about ham.

With the establishment of the republic, the ingenuity of a population of artisanal food producers fixed upon improving the most estimable of American products, ham.
