    In real life, the United States Army developed a “digital camouflage” pattern for its combat uniform that, due to the colors selected and the use of right angles instead of natural curves, didn’t match anything that occurred in nature and so was largely useless as a camouflage pattern.

    …Until one soldier posted a photo of himself wearing the combat uniform and blending perfectly into a random couch, indicating that he’d finally found something the pattern was good for: avoiding relatives.

    At one point in time, there was a brand of car known as the Yugo. The name, as you can imagine, was because the car was made by the nationalized car manufacturer of Yugoslavia.

    Given how cheaply they were made and the highly favorable exchange rate between the US dollar and whatever the currency in Yugoslavia was at the time, the Yugo was so cheap that a new Yugo was often cheaper than a used US-made car. Some car dealers were actually doing stunts where if you bought a higher-end US-made car they’d just give you a Yugo for free.

    Well, Yugos weren’t exactly reliable to begin with; they needed a lot of extra maintenance to keep working, but because of how cheap they were people came to see them as disposable. In time, the Yugo became a literal punchline.

    As she admitted in yesterday’s strip, she wants to be on a juniors cooking competition show and she’s close to aging out of eligibility.

    So it’s not entirely about cooking, but rather a fair bit about her desire to be on TV.

    The real question IMHO is if she simply wants to be on TV, and that show is the vector she’s chosen.

    If she just wants to be on TV, then she should look into whether or not one of her local television stations has time set aside for public access. If that’s the case, she and the others could petition to host their own show.

    Said “Republican” also donated money to a pro-Biden PAC, something that various news outlets are curiously avoiding while others, like local-level CBS affiliate KWTX (Waco, Texas), are openly mentioning it.

    Said “Republican” donated to Biden, leaving their actual political beliefs in doubt.

    As it is, everyone from rank-and-file Biden supporters to high profile individuals like Alyssa Mercante of IGN were making posts cheering for the shooter and lamenting their failure. Mercante was quick to delete her posts when people started circulating them, but other posts are still active on Twitter and such.

    In the first video game, Sonic would collect golden rings that were scattered throughout each level. So long as he had at least one ring in his possession, any damage he took from an enemy would cause the rings to spill out instead of being a fatal injury; if you were quick, you could recover a number of those rings. If he took a hit without those rings, however, he was done for.

    Honestly don’t remember.

    In 1988 and 1989, Ralston Foods worked with a couple of newspaper syndicates to produce Morning Funnies, a breakfast cereal that was themed around then-popular newspaper comic strips. The cereal itself was fruit-flavored smiley faces, while the boxes (there were a series of different ones a person could find at retail) had exclusive comic strips printed on them; there was even a gate flap on one side that had more comics hidden underneath.

    I remember quite enjoying it all as a child, but can understand why it didn’t last very long.

    Take a look at how those kids’ cereals compare nutritionally to the adult cereals.

    Back during the 2020 / 2021 hysterics over Covid, my mom got it in in her head that if we increased our intake of certain vitamins and minerals we’d be protected, so she went looking for “healthy” cereals that had high amounts.

    Given how many kids’ cereals are nutritionally fortified these days, I got to probing around and found that a (since discontinued) Jolly Rancher brand of breakfast cereal had amounts of those minerals that were comparable to those “healthy” cereals.
