Friday Quote & Puppy Blogging

Today’s quote is actually from a review of the Nikon D200 digital SLR, which should be showing up on my doorstep any month now. Ken Rockwell, who is a huge Nikon fan (and possible shill, if you read some of the digital photography forums) and a little… odd, had a whole section of his review titled “Fudge Packing (Filling memory cards to 100%)”, with numerous references to fudge packing and fudge packers, finally concluding with this explanation:

The specific reference to packing fudge, as opposed to pencils, oranges or cameras, comes from the confectionary industry. Fudge needs to be packed completely into containers without airspaces. Airspaces might create dry segments in the otherwise delicious fudge.

The things you learn on the internets.

And, of course, there’ll be other people’s puppies…

Executive Pepperage

Am I the only one wondering if The Beerhunter spent a good chunk of that missing 18-20 hours frantically calling up Republican lawyers, trying to find one willing to argue that executive privilege secrecy extends to shooting people in the face?

“If the president and vice-president are forced to disclose to the public every time they shoot someone in the face, it will have a chilling effect on their future ability to shoot people in the face. Such unvarnished face-shooting is essential to a robust executive decision-making process.”

Nah, on second thought, it’s a crazy theory. John Yoo can’t be that hard to reach.

From NYT’s review of (bleagh) Eight Below, about ultra-cute sled dogs triumphing over adversity and making their war home after being stranded:

…even grown-ups will be startled by the attack of the computer-generated leopard seal.
