Possibly unpopular Golden Girls opinion: Golden Palace wasn't that bad of a show. Storylines weren't usually very good, but Don Cheadle and Cheech Marin actually did a pretty OK job with the material.

Pretty amusing how they kicked the kid off the show midseason, though, without any sort of "goodbye."

Shout out to one of my all time favorite internet things: this collection of images of novelty baby clothing on zazzle but with the default model switched to an adult.

Only six tracks this time around, but here's the stuff I was feeling in April. Jazz, hip-hop, and Tati-influence. open.spotify.com/user/supalaze

Number of calls in the last three days I've received from Azerbaijan: 6.

I'm sure they're all above board, too.

The three best vegan cream cheese spreads:

Miyoko's
Kite Hill
Tofutti (the original and still one of the best)

Someone should create an Alexa app that lets you clap twice to turn the lights on and off like the original smart home device. youtu.be/cfgN5tUgjb8

A teacher from my high school documented school life for years. For each class' 20th anniversary he puts together a 2 1/2 hour time capsule DVD. I was revisiting ours tonight and even though I hated high school, it is an absolute trip watching video from the school, seeing the friends, classrooms, teachers, all frozen in time as I remember them.

(He is also responsible for the video of me rapping at my senior prom in 94.)

This is a seriously entertaining article about dog poop and how we need to start thinking more about it. theguardian.com/society/2019/j

I'm astonished (and impressed) that someone has built a device to power a streetlamp with dog poop depoisted in it.

"Walkers use free paper dog poo scoopy-bags and put it into a bin that feeds it into a biodigester. The microbes in the anaerobic digester produce methane, which is then stored and used to power a streetlamp that comes on at dusk."

Random photo time - see if you can name the time/event, @pb

Wow. Lasership still sucks. They "attempted delivery" but didn't want to leave my package (a book) unattended. I was here. With the front door open. And have never worried about unattended packages before.

More in the "People Love to Hear Themselves Talk" category: just saw a sponsored ad on FB for tree-free eco-friendly toilet paper. OK, fine.

That *sponsored ad* has almost 5,000 comments on it. ON AN AD. And, of course, being Facebook, the comments are mostly of the "this is so obviously stupid and bad and I can see it so what can't everyone just agree with me because I'm clearly right?" variety.

I've been on the web for almost 25 years, yet I will still try checking the "remember me" checkbox on a login form after I've already clicked "sign in," hoping somehow it'll take.
