Here is the most frightening thing about the dress debate

The Buzzfeed poll, which I believe at this point is sampling a fuck-ton of humanity, shows that nearly 3/4ths of the people polled see the image in question as white and gold. I am in the minority who see the dress as blue and black and the thing is, the dress IS blue and black. That is the objective reality of the… » 2/27/15 2:57am 27 minutes ago

Bear Chews Finch's Shoe and Gets Walked on Person of Interest: Blunt

Other stuff happened too, of course, but everyone's favorite canine of interest had been out of sight the last few episodes, so it was good to see him back .

The question is, how should the show return? » 2/26/15 5:40pm Yesterday 5:40pm

Thursidae - Ursus americanus Editon

New series, everyone! Pitchblende deserves credit both for the idea of doing a series about bear species as well as the name of the series.

However, maybe… » 2/26/15 5:30pm Yesterday 5:30pm
