Randomness for 6/21

1) An end to showering Apparently, the problem with smelly guys at cons is not that they don’t shower enough. It’s that they shower at all.

2) Drug or Tolkien elf? A quiz. I scored 23 out of 30, which is better than I expected.

3) 17 completed webcomics you can read from beginning to end.

4) AMC threatens to sue fansite over posted spoilers.

5) The defeat of the Confederacy should be a national holiday.

6) Funeral business dissolves the dead, pours them into town sewers.

7) The second-most-useful site on the internet.

The one on not showering is disgusting beyond words. The green cremation, on the other hand, looks potentially very useful. Not least in ensuring that there will never be a plague of either vampires or zombies in that town.

I got full marks for the drug/elf quiz. Some of Tolkien's names sound silly simply because of the vast gulf of culture between him and many of his modern readers. It happens. I remember reading an entry in "The Atlas Of Middle-Earth" that baffled me until I found our that the US and the UK define the word "garden" quite differently.

Hey, just rinse yourself off and make sure you have the correct skin bacteria. Not that we know what mix of which bacteria will work.

But I expect the funeral home that dissolves bodies has a stronger environmental impact than they let on.

I suspect a lot will depend on the effectiveness of the sewage works too.
