Says Marianne:

“In 1990 my husband passed on; I was 36-years-old and left with 3 small children. For some reason I wrote to Kurt Vonnegut and thanked him for his books and his compassion. I did not expect a reply. He must have been a kind man, as he sent this to me within a month of writing to him. I have always wanted to share his kind words. It meant, and still means, so much to me.”

From the Department of Awesome Pets:

Meet Jim Sautner and his pet buffalo, Bailey Junior. Weighing 1,820 pounds, Bailey might just be the world’s largest domestic pet. 

Jim’s wife Linda says of her husband and the buffalo: “They have shared a bond since Bailey Junior was only a few weeks old when we adopted him after the tragic death of the first buffalo that Jim and I had raised. Bailey Sr had become a family member. I guess he became our baby. I know that sounds bizarre.”

He Was a Crook. From: Dr. Hunter S. Thompson – The Atlantic

He Was a Crook – The Atlantic

Richard Nixon is gone now, and I am poorer for it. He was the real thing — a political monster straight out of Grendel and a very dangerous enemy. He could shake your hand and stab you in the back at the same time. He lied to his friends and betrayed the trust of his family. Not even Gerald Ford, the unhappy ex-president who pardoned Nixon and kept him out of prison, was immune to the evil fallout. Ford, who believes strongly in Heaven and Hell, has told more than one of his celebrity golf partners that “I know I will go to hell, because I pardoned Richard Nixon.”

I have had my own bloody relationship with Nixon for many years, but I am not worried about it landing me in hell with him. I have already been there with that bastard, and I am a better person for it. Nixon had the unique ability to make his enemies seem honorable, and we developed a keen sense of fraternity. Some of my best friends have hated Nixon all their lives. My mother hates Nixon, my son hates Nixon, I hate Nixon, and this hatred has brought us together.

Superman and Harley Quinn marry!

While most of the nerd community ships Miss Quinn and the Joker, cosplayers Jessica and Jonathan Carroll were wed in their cosplayer personas. The groomsmen wore the finest Kryptonian robes (which Jonathan made himself), and the bride’s dress was custom made with a ‘jester’ theme. Her ring was also custom, with three diamond shaped rubies surrounded by black diamonds. 

Everything about this wedding was nerdy, but done in a beautifully classy way! 

Congrats to Jessica and Jonathan, may the sun ever shine on your marriage 🙂
