Today is November 15th. IT’S FRIDAY!!! On this date in 1806, Zebulon Pike first spotted the mountain that would eventually come to be known as Pikes Peak. It was going to be Zebulon’s Peak, but Lrrr of the planet Omicron Persei 8 objected on copyright grounds. (Zebulon is the Omicronian word for copyright.) Also, today is National Clean Out Your Refrigerator Day. Just in time, too. I opened mine at breakfast this morning (read: afternoon) to find something healthy (read: Pop-tarts) and found a mysterious temple with a voice that said “There are no Pop-tarts. Only Zuul. Now you will kn … oh wait, here they are. Mmmm, cherry!” So yeah. Clean out your fridge. Anyway, find today’s links below and as always please consider this an Open Thread.
