The Unfact™ of the Month

The Unfact™ is, to the best of our knowledge, completely false and unsupportable. We are not responsible for any consequences that are bound to occur if you are silly enough to believe it.

Due to late payments on several loans, the United States was owned by the Dominion of Newfoundland for a week during the Twenty-three Day Panic of 1801, a very brief economic depression.

The ignominy of it all has still got me down. That’s a "depression" pun.

Here on Evil Ray’s Isle…

No phone, no lights, no motorcar…okay, not really. Phone, lights and motorcars are back. Things should be back to “normal” on Monday…ish. We’re at the phase of post-hurricane recovery where we curse FEMA. Try it at home!

Skippeeerrr!

Evacu-wheee!

Moving across town isn’t much of an evacuation, but I’ll be on higher ground for the next few days.

Stay dry! Unless you don’t need to.

Practice

From Wikiquote's Latin Phrases.

Fabricando fit faber. – "Practice makes perfect.".

Facilis descensus Averno. – "The descent to hell is easy."

Okay, so, practice, practice, practice. Any questions?

The Dharama Bums vs. The Elder Gods

An author has released a book into the wild.

‘Move Under Ground’ by Nick Mamatas.

The Elder Gods have returned and Jack Kerouac and Neal Cassady save the world. No, really.

"It took a long time; I had to avoid any block with an office building or a post office—the mugwumps (that’s what Allen called them, from Bill’s book, I remembered now—damn, I should have read it) were in force there."
