Can't you picture some Federal bureaucrat with purview somehow over wood pallet fires trying to fan the flames of public opinion in the interests of his or her job security and budget?

The whole post is hilarious and worth you time.

    I, for one, have always been hamperd by the fact that I had only 8 Crayolas as a child.

    As a spectroscopist, I don't find this funny at all. :(

  3. Chuckles:

    The color survey is a masterpiece. Highly recommended.

    XKCD is a great website. I have one of his cartoons signed and framed in my home. Very quirky and very funny

    It is kind of funny, I fall on the left side as a painter, but since I paint mostly models for wargaming I think of them as "Cavalry Red" or "Goblin Green." I guess since it is for man dollies it is a little more macho?
