There are lots of creative notions and flights of fancy I come up with in the shower, after a couple of scotches or in the drowsy state which precedes real sleep.

This is not one of them.

We gave into the inevitable and created a category.

No further posting until all my enemies are vanquished.

Wild flapjack octopus (Opisthoteuthis sp.), a deep sea octopus, spotted on a dive made by the ROV Doc Ricketts. This species is on display in the special exhibit "Tentacles" at the Monterey Bay Aquarium.

"As someone that’s describing the species you get to pick what the specific name is," researcher Stephanie Bush told Science Friday. "One of the thoughts I had was making it Opisthoteuthis adorabilis — because they’re really cute."

Look.  I’ve been documenting Hello Kitty artifacts from before the dawn of time, but I’m just about done (no SM gear yet, although I can’t say I’ve looked for it) with this.

It only travels 10 mph, but it DOES have twin BB Gatling guns (6000rpm), which ought to be enough to get me through traffic slower than that.  Traffic faster than that can just bite me.

I was looking for a phone charger at Fry’s and found these:

Fry’s seems to be a one-stop shop for my peculiar interests.

Diprosopus is caused by a malfunction in development in the sonic hedgehog protein (you think I’m kidding.  That’s its real name.  Should have been called “politician protein”…but I digress).

We might save time by referring to this animal as “Photoshop Cat”…except his name is Frank and Louie.

From https://www.facebook.com/IFeakingLoveScience?fref=nf, which is not misspelled.  Sent to me by my step-daughter, who fucking loves science.

Google Image search for “snot otter skull” yields the most interesting mix of photos it has been my serendipitous pleasure using to keep me from Real WorkTM in some time.

Just because they are two things I like doesn’t mean they like each other.

Her daughter is the cutest thing I have seen in years…since mine were little, in fact.

This young lady was very insistent upon carrying the parasol.  She actually looked cuter earlier, but that photo is somewhat less perfect:

Evolution of a Meme April 12, 2012

It has been said that a good meme will propagate itself and evolve to fit any available niche.  In the ecology of graphics this is most certainly true when propagated for humor:

This can be seen around the bay area, where Mad Dog is located.

This I spotted in front of NoiseBridge, our local hackerspace.  I swear I was only there to get dinner from the taqueria down the street.
