When she is not stealing souls, she is stealing glasses.
Whatever sort of monster she is, she is a myopic monster.
Some time ago, I posited that Maggie might actually be a zombie.
The signs were there. The moaning. The attempts to eat human flesh.
Now? I’m not so sure.
The true test is whether or not her bite turns others into a zombie, and teeth have yet to break through the gums and wreak their havoc upon our lives — the only thing certain about our knowledge on this issue is that we cannot be certain.
But she has grown rather articulate for a zombie, with multiple consonant and vowel sounds that she combines in some sort of experimental type fashion.
And she’s using a fork these days. Zombies do not, to my knowledge, use a fork.
Also, there’s this:
Yes, that’s my daughter reaching into her own grandmother’s mouth in an attempt to pull out her soul. Not nice, but not very zombie-like.

These are just a few of the ways in which this much reblogged article regarding Glee and copyright fails to have its facts straight. Still, it is interesting stuff and the hyperbole does not entirely invalidate the article’s conclusions.
|My Roomba is broke, and I need to order a part to fix it. So sad. In the meantime I am forced to stare sadly at its beautiful algorithms.|
|Do not forget to password protect your Internet in Germany — you can be fined 100 Euros. In related news, German courts make it illegal for those who are not tech savvy to have wireless internet.|
|Apple and Flash, part one:
Take what Steve Jobs says about Flash, and do a copy & paste.
|Apple and Flash, part two:
To demonstrate how HTML5 (as an open standard) is better than Flash, Apple created a little demo page to show you. Of course, if you are not using an Apple’s Safari browser, Apple tells you that you need Safari. Even though Firefox, Chrome, and most other current browsers would work just fine.
|I’m sure you heard this, but the Big Bad Blog would be remiss not to repeat it:
Saudi clerics have issued a fatwa … advocating that women should share their breast milk with the men in their life.
