On Four Hours in the Totebag Capital of the World

@Reid Harris Cooper@twitter It is wonderful especially the part about it being hot and cold simultaneously to which I might have added the overly push carpet seems to exude a gentle hint of the aroma of wet dog.

On What If Scotland Divorced the UK?

@BadUncle Well, I agree on the cuisine part, but rather than a contempt for sobriety I would prefer it to be known as an affection for intoxication. Helps, you know, to swallow the idea of paying millions and millions to support a family of minor german princelings.

On What If Scotland Divorced the UK?

So, were this to happen would Scotland be a Monarchy or a Republic? There is, in Francis II, a Jacobite pretender.

On A Conspiracy of Hogs: The McRib as Arbitrage

@Clarke Barry@twitter Well, Melis, WE became fatigued at your seventh well chosen and totally appropriate word. WE resolved another McRib would be the best solution... (Urp.)

On A Conspiracy of Hogs: The McRib as Arbitrage

I got bored about halfway through. I don't think I really care why they exist or why they come and go. I only know I have a toally artificial Pavlovian reaction to them triggered by the advertisements. The ads run. I go out. I buy them. I eat them and I feel gloriously pedestian and giddily guiltless.

On Do You Know What Time It Is?

Here is one. All close together. You are traveling South to North

Prince Edward Island Noon
go North to St. Pierre & Miquelon 1pm
Go North to St. Johns Newfoundland 12:30pm
Go North to Labrador Noon

And here is another thing: If you look at the original maps for the US East Coast you will see that GA and FL were BOTH in the Central Time Zone. This lasted until WWI or so.

Which is why I would really like to throttle Representative Ed Markey of MA every time he wants to screw with extending daylight Saving Time. Hell, no skin off his nose. MA sticks way out in the Atlantic and DC is also a good bit East. Sun is up in both those places for an hour or more before it rises in, say, Atlanta.
