Funiculì Funiculà

I am a fledgling designer with a borderline-obnoxious obsession with typefaces and proper grammar; a love of cheap earrings, baking, and the color green; and far too much time to kill on the intertubes.

Dog Shoots Man: Butt, And Pride, Injured : The Two-Way  →

Shotgun’s loaded. It’s pointing toward a hunter’s backside. Fido gets excited and steps on the weapon. And … you can imagine the rest. Fortunately, the man’s going to be OK.

Wait. Wasn’t this an episode of 30 Rock?

My father, who is a biochemist and therefore does Science for a Living, can confirm the accuracy of the second chart. He also adds:

Instead of Melvin deleting the calibration, he sends an email to everyone about the instrument calibration expiring tomorrow which stems from him not reading an email clearly, then Claudia replies-all with a meeting invite to a completely different topic and doesn’t change the subject line but includes 3 more people who can’t address either the calibration issue or Claudia’s topic other than point out more problems that require rewriting and approving document revisions before Kim can do her work. Meanwhile… Kevin passes on a request for a PowerPoint presentation summary of Kim’s work and how it will be completed by the end of the week even though he was sitting in the meeting reading and sending email while Kim was explaining why she can’t get her assignment done for at least another 2 weeks.

So there you have it—Science. It involves a lot of oblivious people sending useless emails? Oh, and also some experiments.

The first song off this EP is nothing short of adorable. ^_^

I mean, it’s an EP all about NPR! Silly, but endearingly so!
