Stopping by Wawa on a Snowy Evening
Is Wawa open? Yes or no?
We need to stop if it’s not closed
To stock up for the party. Shit!
But Wawa doesn’t sell beer, though.
I’m such an ass. I must admit
I’d completely forgotten it:
Convenience stores don’t sell booze here.
Now how the hell will we get lit?
We’ve only got two racks of beer
And one bottle of Everclear;
That’s just enough for maybe three
Or four of us. It would appear
That some of us will have to be
Spending the night alcohol-free.
I guess I’ll drink lemonade tea,
I guess I’ll drink lemonade tea.
I love Tumblr. Like, reallylove Tumblr. Bring it up in a conversation and I’ll carry on endlessly (if allowed) about how it has entirely changed the game regarding access to information that was previously only for the eyes of those within the marble tower of the academy. How I’ve learned more about theory and feminism from the nineteen-year-old girls I follow, than I did in any French Feminist…
we are back
We love Rube Goldberg machines, and have posted about these short films from Japan’s NHK educational TV show, Pitagora Suitchi (PythagoraSwitch) before, so it’s no surprise that this 20 minute video collection of their Pitagora devices had the kids completely thrilled and mesmerized. The kinetic chain reactions were designed by a team from Keio University’s Masahiko Sato Laboratory. Watch them online while you can!
