I think it was Bunny Huang, so maybe it's on his blog.
I don't see it there, but I also think the poster was a skinny white guy.
I could swear I saw it in Make, but a couple of searches through the online archives didn't turn anything up. Maybe it was in the print mag.

Re: Gentry from the block

Well, part of the point of this is that it’s specifically not about new or rehabbed development. New and rehabbed development of 10 units or more already requires 10% of units to be affordable, or for the developer to rehab an equivalent number of affordable units within 2 miles, or for the develop...

I don't see any way how a vest (or jacket) with 25 pockets full of stuff doesn't end up making me look lumpier and fatter than I already am.

Re: Fly the Friendly Skies...

Maybe a decade ago, I read a blog post by someone who frequently used a tactical pouch belt, the sort you can unclip, run through an x-ray, then clip back on, for both everyday use and air travel. At least at the time, it didn't count as luggage, and so it was a handy way to carry a load of things ...

Re: To DVDs and Beyond: The Netflix Thread

I'm bingeing Altered Carbon after we put the tr0gling to bed. The book has been on my radar for a while, but given what else I've read from Morgan, it's going to be chock full o' retarded socialism. The series is, but I can overlook that for the visuals. Also, is it just me or does Martha Higareda l...

There's nothing like being strapped in on an Air Force plane when the crew chief comes back and climbs over you to start pulling avionics boxes off the wall. At that point, you start thinking the option to exit the aircraft in flight is looking pretty good. They didn't issue parachutes. That's beca...

I've never eaten at chick fillet because of their owners public utterances. But I also know gay folk who love it.
A gay friend of mine (not coincidentally, from Georgia) refers to it as Bigot Chicken but won't stop eating there.

Dodge/Chrysler sells three cars, all basically the same car based on a 20-year old Mercedes (Charger, Challenger, 300). Speaking of, the leasing company wanted to get back the wife's car because she's way under on miles and they had a buyer. So she's now driving a Challenger. Not one of the big hon...

So, I don't understand Russian nicknames. I get that, in general, you form a diminutive of the given name by adding a suffix to a syllable from the given name. What I don't understand (and the internet is failing me here) is why sometimes that starting syllable comes from the middle of the word. I g...

She doesn't appear to be done draining the DNC of all available funds yet. I'm waiting for the eventual price tag on that dumbass lawsuit to be the straw that breaks them.
