Open Thread – Krazy Kamper

What can you say? Somehow, if the current trajectory holds true, I can see Todd and Sarah driving this in about 30 years, going 40 mph down the Seward Highway.

Open Thread – The Richness of English

I got a great chuckle from this email from Mudflatter Butch: This is really inspiring for people fascinated by the richness of the English language. Please know that I didn’t make any of this up, but am merely passing along the work of scholars more assiduous than myself. Did you know that the words “race car” spelled backwards still spell “race car”? And that “eat” is the only word that, if you take the first letter and move it to the last, spells its own past tense, “ate”? But wait. There’s more! And if you rearrange the letters in “Tea…
