    Meh, they look like herbivores to me. But maybe Momma Dragon will spot the commotion and cook up some dino-burgers?

    Love them Wileybears!

    It takes 30 years for history to get interesting because that’s how long it takes to read a real book written for a general audience after getting turned off by mind-numbingly dull school textbooks that are not written to excite or inspire.

    Does Marigold ever use contractions? “It’s” instead of “it is,” “we’ve” instead of “we have,” “you’re” instead of “you are,” etc. It makes her speech sound stilted and unnatural when she doesn’t.

    Technically, every day of the year is after (a) labor day…it’s like saying “never feed a gremlin after midnight.”

    Thanks for the info! Yep, I was also thinking she was referring to the Andromeda pic, or if she wasn’t, that she was in error.

    So if raising their wages to $15/hour was good, raising it to $1,500/hour should be 100 times as good! No negative effects at all! Right? Honestly, why not just raise the minimum wage to $500/hour? Then everyone would be a millionaire after just one full-time year, unemployment would be zero because the economy would be smokin’ hot from everyone buying everything, and the gov’t would have more money than it knew what to do with from raising everyone’s tax rate to 90%.

    Ain’t fairy-tale economics great?

    But how does one shuffle a deck without disturbing the top 4 cards?

    The shroud of Turin has been fairly definitively carbon-dated as originating in the middle ages, during a time when counterfeit religious relics were not just common, but almost an industry. There was big bucks in selling them to the credulous.
