Another Blog, Meanwhile Index

While the Another Blog, Meanwhile index lost three points, the remaining points were polished and arranged in a more tasteful manner. The result is more aesthetically compelling and makes a grand statement on the design and purpose of systems. It reminds us that the mere accumulation of points is not everything; it is the purpose they are put to which matters. That’s what we’re telling ourselves.

  1. I’m glad you specified the powder version of the word “lycopodium” as being meaningless. I recently attended a symposium on the constitutional rights of werewolves, and I found the speaker at the lycopodium to be quite meaningful.
    According to Wikipedia, the only use of lycopodium powder is to determine the size of a molecule of oleic acid. This is unnecessary, as science long ago determined that oleic acid is a 42 regular.


    1. I wouldn’t risk saying anything bad about werewolves, since I know too many of them. There’s a lot of complicated stuff around here.

      42 Regular isn’t a bad size, but the trouble is with all the eating holidays this time of year a 42 Regular is smaller than it is any other time of year, except Smallvember.
