Silent 3's medicated musings
Yet another blog that will take up gigs of space, be accessable to anyone on the face of the earth, and will be read by (maybe) three people... If I'm lucky.

Churchkey Can Co. - Pilsner Beer
The story of the flat top beer can—which must be opened with a churchkey—goes back to 1935 when the first flat top cans were introduced. Canned beer was an immediate success and others quickly joined the marketplace with this versatile packaging. Beer lovers could now enjoy their favorite brews anywhere and with anyone. The flat top can remained a standard until the pull-tab came to market in the mid-1960s. By the mid-1970s, the flat top can was all but a memory. We're excited to offer this often forgotten beer experience once again.

"McKayla is not impressed" meme
Sarcastic Rover: The tweets that keep on giving
If I discover intelligent life, it'll be the first I've ever seen. (I'm looking at you, Mohawk JPL nerd)
Mars can get down to -153° Celsius. Good thing no one bothered to pack me a sweater! Idiots.
I bet if I looked like Wall•E, you jerks would love me more. Not that I care.
Got a rock in my tread… fantastic. I already hate this place. John Carter can have it.
If I get one more "red rover, red rover" joke, I'mma go mass spectrometry on all your asses.
I enter the martian atmosphere at over 20,000 km per hour, and you call Usain Bolt "fast". Screw you assholes.
What they don't show you in that parachute photo is me inside the capsule pissing myself in sheer terror.
TAKE 2: Direct from Mars! It's the Sarcastic Rover (this time with attachments)
FW: “A Tall Tail” by Charles Stross
"You're looking for safety, right? Nuclear thermal, you launch the reactor fuel piecemeal in Soyuz or Dragon capsules with a man-rated launch escape system, then fuel the reactor once it's in orbit. No, nuclear-thermal is fine. Not very efficient, but it's not going to kill anyone. If you want efficient propulsion technology, you've got to look elsewhere. But unfortunately the best rocket tech we know of is far too dangerous to use."
Jim winked at me. "Let me introduce you to Leonard," he said as we drifted toward the poolside cocktail bar. "He'll fill you in on it..."

NOTES FROM THE EDGE OF LIFE
We could have sworn you said the ark wasn't leaving till 5.
Dear Twilight fans,
Please realize that because vampires are dead and have no blood pumping through them, they can never get an erection. Enjoy fantasizing about that.
Sorry to hear about the global warming. Karma's a bitch.
You produced Miley Cyrus. Bieber is your punishment.
I've never heard anyone say, "I don't know, let's Yahoo! it..." Just saying...
So I hear the best rapper is white and the president is black? WTF happened?!
Dear girls who have been dumped,
There are plenty of fish in the sea... Just kidding! They're all dead.
Dear Skin-Colored Band Aids,
Please make one for every skin color.
I feel your pain.....no one wants to run with me either.
Yes, we ARE making fun of you in Vietnamese.
Nail Salon Ladies
Dear Ugly People,
Please stop freaking out about 2012. Our calendars end there because some Spanish d-bags invaded our country and we got a little busy ok?
Dear White People,
Don't you just hate immigrants?
Please stop spell checking all of my rude words into nice words. You piece of shut.
Every iPhone User
At least you get picked up...

It's cute, but can you pick up peanuts with it?

Dorothy Parker on A. A. Milne
Dorothy Parker, who had little tolerance for whimsy, wrote a book review column for The New Yorker under the pseudonym "Constant Reader." The following is her reaction to A.A. Milne's "The House at Pooh Corner," which she quotes and reacts to:
"'Tiddely what?'" said Piglet." (He took, as you might say, the very words out of your correspondent's mouth.)"'Pom,' said Pooh. 'I put that in to make it more hummy.'"And it is that word 'hummy,' my darlings, that marks the first place in The House at Pooh Corner at which Tonstant Weader fwowed up.
