Walk It Out



I was once a real Teletubbies fan. They could get my kids to sit down and be quiet for a half-hour at a time, which was an admirable achievement.

Rebooting a Squirrel



A squirrel, most likely in Russia, happily eats pine nuts out of a guys hand until suddenly he realizes that he's eating out of a guy's hand! Remembering what his mother always told him about humans, he freezes in place and appears almost catatonic. The guy keeps trying to feed him, until the squirrel comes to his senses. (via Geekologie)

Gaxian Children's Literature

In a short comic, David Malki manages to address cultural appropriation, assumptions, whitewashing, and literary criticism, and bring a wry laugh as well. This comic is from Wondermark.

Vegetable Surgery



Twelve-year-old Emma Pickles carefully performs surgery on fruits and vegetables. Watch her do a cesarian on a squash, transplant a heart into a pepper, and remove tumors from all kind of produce. She also does a living-donor transplant, and separates conjoined twins. The operations are not always successful, but they are done with the utmost care. (via Laughing Squid)


Evidence of Alien Life

We see all these reactions, except for the bottom row, but that's a possibility for the future. Let's be cautious, but not so cautious that we close ourselves off from possibilities. This comic is from Randall Munroe at xkcd. Go to the link to read the hover text coda.

Avengers: Endgame Cast Sings "We Didn't Start the Fire"



The Billy Joel song "We Didn't Start the Fire" can be rewritten to reflect any world with a lot of moving parts, and Marvel comics sure has those. I missed this when it was on TV, because I don't have cable anymore. I would have been watching Colbert anyway. (via Metafilter)

As a side note, they took away the legacy version of the Blogger interface today. I hate the new version, which requires twice as many steps to do anything. Pulling up old posts out the 30,000 or so I have is a real pain. You can no longer plop your code in anywhere and have it work. And it's very slow. On the bright side, the search function works for the first time in years. It will take me some time to get used to this.
