The Mystery of the Supranational Rabbit

So much happiness, with one announcement.

The big news, of course, is Friday's SCOTUS ruling: marriage equality covers the entire US now. "The Supreme Court on Friday delivered a historic victory for gay rights, ruling 5 to 4 that the Constitution requires that same-sex couples be allowed to marry no matter where they live and that states may no longer reserve the right only for heterosexual couples." I know I'm hardly the first person to note this, but WTH. I want these photos and tweets in my LiveJournal, as a record. ^_^ (h/t drhoz)

(Note: the text is a parody account tweet! But WTH =:)

And how did the news reach the world? Well, even now, SCOTUS rulings are only made available on paper, in person - so, the interns have an opportunity to break the news first to their respective broadcasters, in the Running of the Interns.

That news, in combination with how the rest of Friday went for me (noted in a friends-only entry, out of professional necessity), made for a very happy Friday indeed. ^_^

Ooh, that works! Take a bottle of Pimm's cider, but add a shot or two of Heston's Earl Grey & Lemon Gin to the glass first, then add the cider. The gin plays beautifully with the Pimm's fruitiness, gently but clearly enhancing its nature.

Some more tidbits about Project Sansar, Linden Lab's next world, were revealed recently, including word that it's currently running around 75fps, with the intent of 90fps, for better use on VR headsets; the terrain will be voxel based; accounts will have a two-tier structure, finally - you'll have one account with the Lab, and then your in-world accounts will all be linked off that.

I rather like this Wondermark take on inheritance. I'd be okay with an exception for housing - everyone needs a place to live, even if the late 20th century saw houses become increasingly merely a financial instrument, with the consequence of absurd inflation. (And heaven forfend we stop just ploughing down nature reserves and old forests to build new houses, when there's such a vast number already there, sitting unoccupied, as a direct consequence of treating housing as such)

If you ever wondered if you're in the wrong profession.. "Cum For Bigfoot was Virginia Wade’s first foray into monster porn, otherwise known as “cryptozoological erotica.” According to her website, Wade (a pseudonym) first “dipped her toes” in the increasingly lucrative industry of self-published smut with titles like Stacy and the Boys and Seducing Jennifer (later retitled, for those lacking imagination, Jennifer’s Anal Seduction). But Cum For Bigfoot outsold all of Wade’s other erotica, earning her up to $30,000 a month through Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing. So she kept churning out Sasquatch stories, publishing a total of 16 books in the Cum for Bigfoot series."

Have a random time-lapse Bigfoot painting of an adorable nature. ^_^
