Awwww…

Hitler. Really.

It’s from this collection of rare photos of famous people, that I think I got via a tweet from Kottke.

A tweet from Kottke. These words apparently have meaning on the planet I am currently visiting.

And if you want to give yourself a slow burn (of course you do! We’re political junkies, after all), have a browse through regulations.gov. Kevin Williamson of NRO helpfully points to the regulations controlling what you can and cannot do with an imported monkey (good news! You can give him cocaine!).

Annnnnnd….that’s it! Uncle B spotted a rat in the henhouse tonight, so we’ve been out shoring up the edges of the run with bricks. I have paving slabs laid down as a floor, but there was a gap just big enough for the little bastard to tunnel in. A rat can kill a sleeping chicken, though he was probably going after their food dish.

sock it to me

Aww. Just like that cute pic of Øbama as a tot, in his Halloween costume…it makes you feel all conflicted inside.

Strange, you can easily see the adult in that pic.

Makes you wonder—what if his dad had loved him more? his mom toilet trained him properly?
Talking about the Schickelgruber kid, of course.

As I said to The Weasel, it calls to mind that favourite old ethical question – if you could go back in time, would it be moral to kill the infant Hitler?

Uncle Badger – better off going for the infant Neville Chamberlain.

Hey, SWeas:
Find a way to keep the chicklets awake and they’ll EAT that rat!

Broken families and childhoods create broken people. I know only too well.

The correlation twixt Hilter and the ‘Bamster is way too spooky.

Time will tell…and we have a full eighteen months here to make that decision.

(Unless the Mayan Calendar is right and we all die on the Winter Solstice!!!!……..OMG,Onozzzz!…..OMG, Onozzzz!)

His chubby little face reminded me that I read somewhere that the Austrians are the world’s greatest spin-doctors. They’ve managed to sell the world for seventy years that he was German!

Oh, yeah? Who convinced the world that the hated poop-monster geese named after John Canada are, instead, Canadian?

I think it is the Moe Howard haircut that transcends the intervening years….

The classical false dilemma. If you COULD go back in time, your options for intervening would extend far beyond the two, to kill or not to kill, options…

You could have bought the kid a pony….or you could have gotten him addicted to porn, or something….

Actually, On the time travel thing, I don’t believe it’s ethical to change anything. even the bad stuff. Because if you think about it, Alot of technological advances were spured by the need and the over all effect of removing the advances would be a lower quality of life. Plus if we can do it. so can the libby’s and think of how much they could fuck up if they wanted….

One of the Laws of Life is that baby anything is virtually certain to be “cute”. This is a matter of survival, at least for placental mammals. If adults weren’t basically well-disposed toward babies, few children would survive the first two o’clock feeding and the species would die out.

Picturing Mrs. Dzugashvili saying “coo-coo” to the infant Josip is still a bit hard.

Ric

Re rats in the henhouse: you should get an air rifle. While you’re out in the garden you can plink at rats.

Oh, we have an air rifle, and Uncle B would dearly love to plink rats. Rats, however, have other ideas. They’re shy. We’ve only caught the one glimpse.

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
