Republican Meme Fantasy World:
Ha ha ha! Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez is SO dumb! She said wrong stuff! Ha ha ha what a dummy!
Republicans that step to her get their asses handed back on platters like quivering pale Jello.
(Not a carbohydrate in sight.)
I got all my favorite flavors so Ketogenesis here I come. I don't know why they put a cat picture on the can but it's cute I guess.
(Mars terraforming proceeds, but slowly.)
The yellow arrow points to my rooms. Inside the rooms is a cat. As it has been fed, the cat has no current concerns about where I might be.

Mariano Pascual's website is a tribute to avoiding convention.
The site’s success lies not in its fancy tricks and hidden Easter eggs – although these are top-notch – but in its immediate impact and speed of communication. “I came up with this operating system that I think is a great way to show my work because you can have an idea of my style as soon as you pop onto the website,” Mariano adds, “Actually you don’t need to see any of my projects to have an idea of my skills… the website turned out to be a piece of art itself.”
The quality of the markup alone is enough to get me to spend some time here, but even if you are not a designer or developer you'll have some fun.
Also have a look Pascual's design partner site achos! Scroll over the words in the intro text and don't forget to have a look at the source code.

(Brown bears fishing in Katmai National Park, Alaska, USA.)
Take a deep breath and immerse yourself in Alaska's pristine wilderness--the perfect place to meditate. Here in Katmai National Park, you'll hear birds calling to one another while the waters of the Brooks River cascade over Brooks Falls, slowing to a soothing whisper downstream. Watch as the mist rises above the river in the early morning sunshine and bears wade into the water to fish. You'll get an underwater view of salmon swimming upstream, while owls and eagles observe from their perches above. Watch as tiny cubs amble after their mothers, moose disappear into the tall grasses, and the sun sets on another breathtaking day in Alaska, a fitting preview to the stunning nighttime display of the Northern Lights.

This is a fantastic report on the conditions and science of fighting large brush fires. The write up is excellent if you don't have time to listen to the whole podcast.
Often it's not the fire but the flying embers that burn homes. Burned homes are often found surrounded by unburned trees and brush.
