Everyday Objects With Faces Are Awesome

When you walk around and look at everything around you, chances are, you may see a face. It may be human, it may be an animal, but sometimes you can see faces in inanimate objects. This is called Pareidolia: Seeing faces in random things!

This is one of my favorite phenomena. :)

ANGRY KAYAK DEMANDS OFFERINGS!

Since I’ll be leaving Raleigh in two weeks, I should make the time to check out some of my favorite restaurants, and go to new ones I’ve been meaning to try.

Tonight: wings & ribs at Outback Steakhouse.

If any of my followers know of a good place in Raleigh I should try, please let me know!

The Flying Saucer, the Borough, Chuck’s, and Beasley’s I can all personally vouch for.

Flying Saucer is a good pub, but go there Sunday night at around 8 or 9 to avoid the crowds.

Chuck’s has amazing burgers, the woman who runs that and Beasley’s won Iron Chef like 3 years in a row I think. 

Beasley’s is a place that has Fried Chicken and waffles. Pretty good biscuits too. And if you’re into fish, go there on Friday nights for their catfish.

I’ve been to The Flying Saucer many times (usually get dinner there before the Succubus Sorority & Nerdvana burlesque shows at Legends), I know them well!  Their chili cheese fries confused me; they have the chili under the fries, not on top like every other place I’ve been to.

I’ve been to The Borough twice, neither time impressed me.  But those may’ve been flukes.

I’ve ever heard of Chuck’s or Beasley’s Chicken + Honey, but both sound right up my alley!  Thanks!

Ooh, that’s only about two miles from my apartment!  Thanks!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Trivia Click gifs for more trivia in captions

So Natasha was born in 1984 (same year as Scarlett Johansson).

And it’s been stated - by Natasha herself and by others - that she’d served in the KGB.

But the KGB disbanded in 1991.

So either A] the KGB disbanded later than that in the MCU; B] Zola had false information, and Natasha was born before 1984; or C] Natasha was a renowned KGB agent at six years old.

B is actually quite possible, since in the comics it’s been revealed she was a child in the early 1940s, but had received treatments during her time in the KGB/the Red Room Academy (who had developed their own version of the Super Soldier Serum) which slowed her aging, augmented her immune system, and generally enhanced her physical and mental abilities, so something similar could be going on in the MCU.  C is also possible, since in The Avengers Natasha indicated to Bruce that she started being a spy the same age as the girl who fooled him into meeting her, though it seems odd for her to be referred to as a former KGB agent if she was so young working for them and they broke apart before her eighth birthday.

Belated Happy Birthday to darkamoeba who, word on the street is, runs a mean game of Pathfinder!

So here’s the deal D.A. Since it’s you’re birthday, during your next game when you get to the next climatic combat, be sure to have your favorite bad-ass do something big, then roll his attack d20 right out in front of the players. Regardless of what turns up, very obviously change it to a natural 20. When your players are like “WTH!?!” point them toward this:

For his birthday, darkamoeba gets one free natural 20 during his next game.

Then drink in the pain. Drink it in.

(But try not to slaughter cowscratch, they pointed me your way.) :)

Happy birthday, man!
