Quote by a forest ranger at Yosemite National Park on why it is hard to design the perfect garbage bin to keep bears from breaking into it: “There is considerable overlap between the intelligence of the smartest bears and the dumbest tourists.”

I'm amazed at the truth of this while also appalled at the mind that spent this much time making it.

That's not even the half of it- there's more. Way, way more. Stare into the abyss.

The Holotypic Occlupanid Research Group : A Database of Synthetic Taxonomy

Yet it's not all silly- turns out people occasionally ingest these things, so medical researchers have found his work useful and has been cited.
Just as the fiction of nerdy collegiality has come to fruition, Daniel’s invented term ‘occlupanid’ has also gained serious traction. It appears in a scientific paper published in the British Medical Journal in 2011. While studying occlupanids is funny because they are trivial pieces of detritus, there is one scenario in which they must be taken seriously.

According to the BMJ article, since 1975, there have been over twenty cases of plastic bag clips being accidently swallowed, and then adhering to patients’ intestinal mucosa. It’s thought that three post-operative deaths have occurred in relation to “plastic bag clips in the gastrointestinal tract.”
In yet another example of reality mimicking fiction, the paper calls for the elimination or redesign of clips to prevent ingestion or hooking onto the digestive tract, and refers to Daniel’s classification system as an important reference for this process. As Daniel puts it: “Suddenly the site that played with scientific concepts was being used for actual medical research. It’s the best punchline to the initial gag I could ever hope for.”

This punchline exemplifies how research can be both a parody of science, and actually be science. Despite the comic aspects of Daniel’s work, “There is a decided ethic that runs through HORG. Everything is based on actual samples, sent in and carefully catalogued.”

I know, she is who she is + Daily Fail celebrity gossip so it's a cheap shot but I can't resist pointing and laughing.

Paris Hilton is launching a new career as a podcast host because she believes 'voice and audio is the next frontier'
'I've always been an innovator and first mover when it comes to reality TV, social, DJing, and now I really believe that voice and audio is the next frontier,' she said in a statement.
:lol: Light out for the territories, you future sailor you.

That's even better than the guy whose kid had been the last one to use Zoom, and signed into a meeting as something like Captain Fart.

I must've watched that a dozen time yesterday. So great.

A secondary lol is that there's the warning in the top left square, and the judge posted his own take on the vid, in clear violation.

Two laughs from the impeachment today.

Trump's lawyer arguing in earnest that a Trumper meant Calvary, not cavalry...

And Stacey Plaskin brilliantly throwing it back. Lol.

I feel like the fundamental flaw of Trump and all of his associates is their inability to conceive of anybody smarter than themselves.

More fundamental than their inability to shut the fuck up when it would be in their best interests?

Eta: actually I think it may be a prerequisite, for were they not convinced of their own slickness they might consider exercising caution occasionally.
