Sam marvels at the creepy insanity of Q-Anon and its dupes, symps, and fellow travelers.
This is weirdly disturbing and disturbingly weird. SeattlePI reports:
New research in biomechanics suggests that young people are developing hornlike spikes at the back of their skulls – bone spurs caused by the forward tilt of the head, which shifts weight from the spine to the muscles at the back of the head, causing bone growth in the connecting tendons and ligaments. The weight transfer that causes the buildup can be compared to the way the skin thickens into a callus as a response to pressure or abrasion.
The result is a hook or hornlike feature jutting out from the skull, just above the neck.

Sometimes, when I walk into a restaurant and see four persons all seated at a table with their heads buried in their phones, I can’t help but wonder, “Why the hell did they bother going out together?”
David distills the weirdest moments from Donald Trump’s bizarre CPAC speech.

Steve Albrecht remembers his time in the air.
After 30 years
as a road warrior in jobs that required lots of travel, I hope never to step on an airplane again, especially as the airlines seem committed to making cattle cars seem attractive by comparison. I must, however, say that none of my flights was as eventful as the ones he relates. The worst things that happened to me were nearly getting bumped in St. Louis (when the ticket agent saw my expression, he silently changed his mind) and a missed connection in Phoenix (my American Express travel agent had me reaccommodated in one phone call).
All you folks who just had babies, remember, in just 13 years, you will have a teenager.
