EPIC NOMIC POST

Well, maybe not epic.  But big, anyway.  Moderately thorough.  It’s no skinny, sand-kicked weakling on Sunny Post Beach, that’s for damn sure.

Here is what I’m talking about: my Nomic post to Metafilter.  Don’t know what Nomic is?  Go read that and find out!  Do know what Nomic is?  Go read that and find out more!

The question in the back of my head: will this spawn a mefite-driven game of Nomic?  If so, will it be any good?  If so, will it last more than a month?  Damnable Nomic is fragile and ephemeral in proportion to it’s awesomeness, which is a pain in the ass when you consider just how awesome it is.

Eating a donut is the smartest thing I ever did.

Hey, do you remember how a while back I ate a big ol’ donut and a picture of it got picked up on the food blog Serious Eats?

Well that was cool and all, but now that photo has showed up in a blog from Wired.  Oh hell yes.

It got there via a thread I posted on Metafilter yesterday (with Neatorama as a stepping stone), linking to the excellent new size-ist blog Comically Large Things, run by Mefite jbickers.

And, just for the record, the donut photo wasn’t on the blog when I linked it.  It’s just that jbickers has tremendous taste, and started nabbing stuff mentioned in the mefi thread for use on the blog.  I’m as surprised as anyone.

Next up: cover of Time.
