True or False?
"Wig or Cotton Candy?" was a gameshow that took place in the summer of 1983. In it, a member of the audience was outfitted with either a wig or a nest of blonde cotton candy. Contestants would then guess between wig or cotton candy. As the show went on, the host would play with alternating distances and lighting to increase the game’s difficulty. The show ended when a dog ran on to set and chewed through an audience member’s wig and then scalp, which is crazy because you’d think the dog would be more attracted to the cotton candy. Some woman said that maybe the dog was fooled, but nope. He wanted that wig. I guess you never know with animals.
Answer: False

Anonymous asked:

Do you ever encounter writer's block? If so, how do you cope with it?

cordjefferson answered:

In those moments I try and force myself to remember that this is my job. House painters don’t get house painter’s block. Baristas don’t get barista’s block. I think some writers fuck themselves up by thinking of their job as high-minded philosophy for which one requires perfect conditions and a perfect headspace. It’s work. Treat it as work instead of an academic exercise.

Oh, thank goodness. *shreds bills*

Gonna start hoarding gas, Mad Max style.

Sorry about that kids, but my 1976 Dodge Coronet and those 10,000 plastic take-out forks I used were totally worth it.

Overjoyed that NASA invented Brooklyn being affordable again

But this is as good as it is inevitable for the planet, right? The “end of civilization” is just code for “Rome fell” and that was a net plus for the world after a while. Our turn at being the colonial superpower is coming to an end, lots of people will die, we’ll have another thousand years of darkness, blah blah blah. Again, like with the Big Bang thing, what the fuck did we think would happen? 

Time is a flat circle, man.

Did anyone actually click through? Here is the most important phrase: “Although the study is largely theoretical,” which means this isn’t a “study” so much as a “guessing game.” It’s getting published in Ecological Economics - which is to say, this is an economist’s idea, not some kind of data analysis.

Stop getting excited about mass extinction.
