This Moment of Zen Brought to You by Seamus Romney

It’s been a long week.  But today is National Puppy Day!

So in honor of the puppehs, enjoy this hypnotic video of dogs in cars.

Bonus K9 photo that inspired David Axelrod to say “How loving dog owners transport their dogs”:

Woof woof.

Let’s go to the DMV to get our license renewed!

Anyone who applies for an original or renewal driver license must meet the department’s visual acuity (vision) screening standard. The DMV’s vision screening standard is:

20/40 with both eyes tested together, and
20/40 in one eye and at least, 20/70 in the other eye.

Why, that’s exactly what I scored!

In other news, my left eye sucks. Surprise!

@nojo:
As a bad eyesight person I would be happy if I could do 20/40 without glasses (main reason I never became an infantry officer and not currently getting shot at in Afghanistan.)

@ManchuCandidate: It’s not the decrepitude, it’s the creeping decrepitude. And I thought hair in my ears was the worst of it.

Speaking of Fail Whales, Twitter’s got purtier.

Dude.

Wow. Half of my family was named after those dogs, except for Snickers: He was our cat.

@JNOVw00tah:
Much of it can be explained by the Dunning Kruger effect.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dunning%E2%80%93Kruger_effect

Those who are ignorant/incompetent are unable to judge what is actually good/competent. This explains why a guy like Newt is considered an intellectual force.

@ManchuCandidate: There goes my self-confidence. Wait…

^^Can’t see shit w/o corrective lenses, BTW. Used to be correctable to 20/20. Now 20/40. I don’t like that, but at least I’m not looking like an owl.

@nojo: How’s the schnoz?

8:03 am • Saturday • March 24, 2012

I’d say it’s the creeping decrepitude, Aqualung.

@JNOVw00tah:
Hee. My only saving grace from DK are my doubts (which suspiciously sounds like my mom.)

DK confirms what I’ve long suspected which is that folks who never question themselves (internally) are usually the most incompetent. Having seen DK up close and personal (my housemate), I think the reason why a lot of folks don’t question/doubt is that they’re afraid of looking in and seeing themselves as who they are. My housemate lives in a fantasy bubble where he’s the healthy competent 18 year old king of the universe.

BTW, it’s now 1 day or 1 week left and I’ll get rid of my 300lb albatross,

However, I’ve known folks who have let their doubts cripple them.

@ManchuCandidate:

Speaking of people so stoopid they don’t realize they’re stoopid, I give you Rep. Don Pridemore of Wisconsin:

Instead of leaving an abusive situation, women should try to remember the things they love about their husbands, Representative Don Pridemore said. “If they can re-find those reasons and get back to why they got married in the first place it might help,” he told a local news station.

In philosophy, we call that the Unexamined Life. Goes back to Socrates: You don’t know shit until you know what you don’t know.

@al2o3cr: The thing that really bothers me about that is that the doosh actually things he is displaying wisdom and gravitas with that comment.

Dunning-Kruger indeed.

That whole love thing marred by bruises.

What a clown.

TJ/ Whoa. Whoa. Whoa. Wait one mutherfucking minute. THAT is how Twin Peaks ended? Totally X-Files bullshit!!!

I want 20something hours of my life back.

@JNOVw00tah: Did we not warn you not to watch the second season? It’s been considered a cautionary tale for every serialized TV series ever since.

6:18 pm • Saturday • March 24, 2012

@nojo: This is crap. I heard Fire Fuck with Me is horrible, but I guess I have to watch it now. If The Smoking Man shows up, I’m killing myself.

ADD: Yeah, the whole second season was pretty crap except for Eye Patch Gladiator. If the lodges are one in the same, and love opens one door and fear the other, and if the little person and the giant are the same…

I KNEW I should have stopped watching that shit when they found NDN cave drawings or when that dude Audrey fell in love with showed up. I do like Audrey, though.

ADDDD: They TOTALLY pulled a LOST! “Er, we have no story line, but we’ll think of one eventually, or maybe not.”

6:24 pm • Saturday • March 24, 2012

@JNOVw00tah: The movie’s even worse than the second season.

What makes the whole thing a cautionary tale is that Lynch and Frost only had the first season plotted out, and had no fucking idea what to do when it became a hit. I vaguely recall that ABC even warned them to wrap up the murder mystery before the first season ended.

The chess game? Total creative desperation.

That said, the moment in the pilot movie when Dad learns that Daughter’s gone remains one of the best ever put to film. Nothing is said. Dad picks up the phone, the sheriff’s car pulls up out back, and all is immediately understood.

Yes.

Oh! Looks like the movie is so bad that three main characters were like, um, no.

grr

They also didn’t explain the whole connection with water. HUGE missed opportunity. They were going there, and then they gave up.

@JNOVw00tah: Perry Ferrell called, he wants 1990 back.

@flypaper: no need to be smug, Garth. ;-P
