So I realize I just posted a super dense and ranty thing about everyone’s favorite subject … politics.  And just so you all know I don’t really run around all day with an angry rain cloud over my head or leak steam from my ears while standing in line at the grocery store (and because I’m feeling super chatty lately, which probably has nothing to do with me being sick and, therefore, feeling like I get a big fat pass on all the stuff I’m supposed to be doing *side eyes rumpled laundry in the dryer*), here’s a glimpse of some of the amusing parts of my week:

1. This is pretty much the most awesome thing since my college roommates made me a giant blue spaceship Star Wars cake for my 21st birthday.  I mean, seriously, who doesn’t think Jupiter’s Great Red Spot and Earth’s mantle—which is a solid that behaves like a liquid (like Silly Putty but not)—are kick ass, and who wouldn’t want to take a giant bite out of that?  What I loved most, though, was the fact that in the original Jupiter cake post (not that I’m stalking the site or anything or, hehem, watched the 7 minute tutorial on how to make my own Earth cake), the baker wrote “*this cake is not to scale” because as a geologist I think scale is IMPORTANT, and scale is totally relevant in a detail-oriented nerdy hahaOMGnerdsrule way for a planet cake.  Plus, how many people can say they ate Australia?

2. For all your SPN people out there, this’ll ping your “everything’s SPN” radar going or at least get your inner Becky Rosen screaming, “OMG, I KNEW IT WAS REAL!” ;)  A large pentagram was found via Google Maps (large as in ~800 ft. across because I measured it because … wait for it … there was A SCALE \o/).  So I’d like to ask Kripke if maybe his inspiration didn’t come from Stull cemetery legends, but … erm … from some "wind-blown steppes" in Kazakhstan.  This part of the article got me chuckling:

“It certainly doesn't help that, upon zooming into the center of the pentagram, viewers will see two places highlighted by previous visitors to Google Maps: One spot is called Adam, the other, Lucifer — a name often linked to Satan SAM.”  Heh, that last strike through was all me. :)

3. The icing on the cake of funny (which is apparently not to scale *snortlaugh*) that had A and me laughing like loons:

4. And then because I've been sick with all this self-imposed "free time", I did this:

And I thought to myself, "North Carolina totally sucks right now, but, wow, glittery sparkles!"

Happy Tuesday flist!  And because I posted twice in a single day, this means you probably won't see another post for something like 8 months. ;) *falls back into the hideyhole of RL*

Oooh, eerie googlemap formations. (There's a reason why watching "Ancient Aliens" is a guilty pleasure. But I did LOL at Colonel Sanders.

The cakes were cool but nothing, NOTHING, made me laugh like that drive thru video did. I love the guy who keeps turning around and looking again and again, as if that is going to change the fact that he can see no one there.

I did too! Clever marketers, defacing the land in the name of profit.

I don't know how the guy driving the car kept himself from laughing. Just hearing everybody's reactions would've had me outing myself in about 3 seconds.
