Open Thread for non-believers

It looks like our twenty other bloggers got raptured by the Spaghetti Monster. If you’re still around, enjoy this pic of Max’s friend Duncan.


Also, chat about whatever. Too.

    does anyone know how to keep my browser from redirecting the Balloon Juice site to the mobile site? it happens about 30% of the time for the main page and is up to about 80% whenever I go to the comments section. started about 2 weeks ago and has been getting progressively worse.

    Just wanted to add another data point to the ongoing series, “Shit costs more and there’s less of it inside than there used to be.”
    So, sometimes I buy the snack size candy bars like Twix or Kit Kat, etc. The “fun size”. They used to be 8 to a pack, regular price I think $1.19 and I’d catch them on sale for a $1.00 even and buy a couple.
    At some recent point they changed the pack to be only 6 and raised the regular price to $1.39.
    Now, no one needs a candy bar. But they are handy for a treat and individually wrapped so they stay fresh for a while.
    Just another kvetch that shit costs more and they’re selling us less of it.

    “Nonbelievers?” I think not. Dog is my copilot.

    @arem1s: I have seen a lot of that too, but progressively less. I had hoped it is being fixed.

    The solution of course, is to excise the “www.” in the url.

    Commenting seems to help also. On some occasions I have tried to comment and gotten 403 errors instead.

    Great snap! I also live in Pittsburgh, and usually think, without being able to put my finger on it, that I can recognize the spot. Once again, I can’t quit place it.

    @Corner Stone: I bought GS cookies this year for the first time in many years, and was surprised at the wee cookies. I was forced to eat many instead of a few, it was terrible.

    Maybe you can take the small cookies from GS and bundle them into derivatives to exchange for larger cookies if the small cookies fail.

    Wait, what?
