Badtux the Snarky Penguin

In a time of chimpanzees, I was a penguin.

Religious fundamentalists are motivated by the sneaking suspicion that someone, somewhere, is having fun -- and that this must be stopped.

WTF was this?

This is on a spit of land sticking out into the Golden Gate almost directly under the Golden Gate Bridge, on the side opposite San Francisco. WTF is it? Or was, I should say, given that it's obviously pretty much done for, with one building gone and the other building almost gone? Curious penguins want to know!

As usual, clicky the picy to embiggeny. And yeah, I was a math teacher, not an English teacher ;-).

The Mighty Fang relaxes. Yes, that's an old Korg electronic guitar tuner, probably over 15 years old now. Still works. Still use it. What more can I say?

Oh, the title of this post ought to be familiar to fans of one of Joss Whedon's lesser-known flops (well, it was a ratings flop anyhow, even if the quality of the show itself wasn't bad at all).

Random picture blogging

This guy was buzzing the Golden Gate Bridge on Sunday. I don't know why, they have security cameras all over the bloody bridge. Training mission? Joy ride? Hmm. The bridge is showing distressing signs of age and poor maintenance. Bare rusty rebars have popped out of a lot of the concrete on the pillars and such too. I wouldn't say that Golden Gate Bridge is falling down. But it's showing the same signs of distress as the rest of America's infrastructure.

Note: As usual, clicky on the pictures to embiggen them... but that photo of the chopper don't get that much bigger. I tried, but that's the best photo I got, he was moving *fast* and by the time I zoomed further he was gone.
