Googling is the new Remembering

Current mood: Coughing

Remembering is something that people used to do in the old days before the internet. It was slightly faster, but a lot less reliable. Most people still actually do have the ability to remember, but it is a lost art which is not practical to use it for general purposes. Modern remembering hobbyists find it most useful for copying things off google and taking them along on trips to primitive caves and rain forests and places. Remembering doesn’t take any electricity or special equipment, but nobody can remember why that matters.

Anatidaephobia Day

 Posted by Bob the Hamster on December 5th, 2005

Current mood: Worried that somewhere, somehow, a duck is watching

As for this “Christmas” thing, I can explain. Christmas is an obscure winter festival with complicated religious connections. It has been associated at one time or another with everything from paganism, to catholicism, to protestantism, and back again. It falls on the day before (and the day after) Anatidaephobia day, and lately it has been used to distract from and corrupt the far more important message of Being Aware That A Duck Is Always Watching You. This “Christmas Tree” is an attempt to embellish the traditional Anatidaephobia Day All-Natural Duck Blind Tree. Particularly subversive is the addition of sparkly tinsel and shiny baubles to the Duck Blind Tree, things which are sure to draw the attention of the ever-watchful duck.
