While we're building walls, might as well add a dome over everything to protect against missiles.

Should be a drone wall, intercept missiles and anything else.

I'm thinking like the nanobot wall in diamond age.

Speaking of Denali, I wonder if the Great Wall of Canada will include an additional wall on the Alaskan border.

And... umm... a giant chain link fence through the Great Lakes?

Are they going to just build a new wall around Hawaii like a detached garage, or extend the wall from the continental 48?

You forgot Dusty Rhodes.

Gulls weren't mentioned in the White Patriarchy newsletter. That said, I only get half the white section, so I could have missed it.

Edit: Oh, and speaking of heresy.

I only ever read (part of) one Pratchett book and wasn't especially impressed but I just chalk it up to things I ain't in to. It does seem weird to (a) make a case of railing against Pratchett and (b) do so without even attempting to read one of his books.

What I get from that article is that the author thinks that in order for a literary work to be valuable or an example of literary greatness it has to be unpleasant or hard to read.

I'm pretty sure he's the type to read Dostoevsky novels in coffee shops, hoping that someone will notice that he's reading a Dostoevsky novel.

The key is to only read the large hardcover versions, as long as they have the authors name in very big font on the cover. Also face away from the window and try to maintain a furrowed brow. Of course that gets in the way of actually reading the book, but that's a small sacrifice to make.

A way to make this easier is to just get a nice Dostoevsky cover and rebind it around something you actually want to read.

Here I've just been tucking my comic books into the Dostoevsky novel, sit-com style.

Dostoevsky would be far too pedestrian for Mr. Jones. Everyone has heard of him. No, sir, Mr. Jones will only read novels written in the authentic voices of Zimbabwean goat herders and the occasional male geisha.

Having said that, I don't read Pratchett for the sparkling prose. I read him because I enjoy his amused and forgiving observations of human nature - a subject on which our Mr. Jones is willfully, nay, proudly ignorant.

Something is happening, but you don't know what it is. Do you, Mr. Jones?

He's too busy riding his penny-farthing to the haberdashery to have his trilby repaired.

Trilbies are too mainstream. A shaved head with one lock of pink hair is all the rage these days.
