Two atoms are walking down the street.

One of them says, "Crap, I just lost an electron."

The second atom asks, "Are you sure?"

The first atom replies, "Dude, if you're not going to help look, then get out of my face."

I've never had persimmons. We bought some the other day, but we haven't tore into them yet. I have no idea the best way to eat them. My wife seems certain, but she's been too busy to prepare them.

So I stare at them on the countertop, looking like little weird tomatoes. Soon, my little persimmons, soon.
This is about the most difficult to eat Dutch delicacy I can think of:


When you press down on the top, the cream in the middle comes out.

Looks like a clear case of "Eat with your fingers" to me.
If it's anything like the vanilla slice* it resembles, then using hands is the way to go but you're still going to have the same problem, but you can then rotate it to get at the filling that's come out.

* There seem to be two main kinds of vanilla slice in Australia - the "real" kind, which features a stiff, yellow vanilla custard in between two pieces of puff pastry, topped with passionfruit icing (or occasionally something heretical like the pink icing in the photo), and the "French vanilla slice", also known as a Napoleon, or a mille-feuille, which usually has an extra middle layer of pastry, a whiter, creamier custard, and is topped with either icing sugar or a kind of streaky mix of white and chocolate icings.

I think it's best to remove the top and eat the cream first.

Otherwise, the cream will still come out as you bite down.

I'm the scatman

Ski bi di bi di do bap do
Do bam do

Bada bwi ba ba bada bo
Baba ba da bo
Bwi ba ba ba do

Bada bwi ba ba bada bo
Baba ba da bo
Bwi ba ba ba do

(More Scatting)

Everybody stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you
As a matter of fact
Don't let nothing hold you back
If the scatman can do it
So can you
Everybody says that the scatman stutters
But doesn't ever stutters when he sings
But what you don't know
I'm gonna tell you right now
That the stutter and the scat is the same thing
Yo, I'm the scat man
Where's the scat man? I'm the scat man.

Why should we be pleasing any politician heathens who would
Try to change the seasons if they could
The state of the condition
Insults my institution
And it only makes me crazy and my heart like wood

Everybody stutters one way or the other
So check out my message to you
As a matter of fact
Don't let nothing hold you back
If the scatman can do it, brother
So can you, I'm the scat man.

Bada bwi ba ba bada bo

Everybody stutters one day or the other
So check out my message to you
As a matter of fact
Don't let nothing hold you back
If the scatman can do it
So can you

I hear you ask all about the meaning of scat
Well I'm the professor and all I can tell you
Is while you're still sleeping
The saints are still weeping
'Cause things you call dead haven't yet had the chance to be born
I'm the scatman


I'm the scatman

Ski bi di bi di do bap do
Do bam do

Bada bwi ba ba bada bo

Baba ba da bo
Bwi ba ba ba do

When I was young, my mother explained that she had to wear glasses because she had astigmatism. I wondered for years if blind people were blind because they had two stigmatisms.

I read the free excerpt (first 38 pages). Although I feel some of it is lost on me, it was still interesting enough for me to want to get the full text sometime.

Also I just tried to start an account on TwitchTV, and was disappointed to find that Tables had been taken as a username. First time that's happened, and hardly surprising, but was disappointed.

It's actually really surprising to me that so common a word as 'Tables' hasn't ever been taken from you before.

Well, most of this is because I haven't been using Tables as my account name for very long. For a long time, I was always IEatTables, it just got shortened recently because, well, Tables is nice and neat, IEatTables makes people start asking questions.
