    Excuse me while I leave to shave my eyebrows off.

    What are we calling “old”?

    @Flight Suit

    Anyone gifted with more life experience than an infant?

    I’m an “old people,” I think, by most standards, but I don’t have any of your creepy mites. You’re just trying to deflect unfavorable attention from yourself unto a helpless minority. Shame!

    Are you sure? Have you checked? Never feel the urge to scratch that eyebrow from time to time? Only two things bother me about their existence among the billions of alien organisms in my body; the fact that they are enjoying a better sex life than I do, and that they’re doing it on my face. They could be a bit more discrete about it.

    Can you fathom the mental anguish being suffered by the 2-4% of Demodex mite-free old people?

    My building does not allow cats. That’s why I have demodex mites.

    They are so cuddly.

    The Belgian soldier in the “Found Photos” is wearing what is called the Yser uniform, so the photo most likely dates from 1915-1916. The Germans occupied about 99% of Belgium during the war, but the Belgian army remained intact and fighting, and gradually switched over to British-supplied equipment as the war went on. There are no insignia on the man’s uniform; most soldiers would have had a division or regiment number on their forage cap. I’m guessing that this man had just finished basic training and was not yet assigned to a unit. The Germans occupied Bruge, so most likely he was a refugee before he joined the army—about one-fifth of all Belgians fled into France or Holand when the Germans invaded.

    Woo Hoo! I can read Frog Applause again! Being without power sucks. Typhoon Jelawat packed a bigger punch than any of the other typhoons this season. My town was among the last to get power back (after 2 days). I was very lucky, though, only losing power. My house had no problems, and my car didn’t get sent rolling around, or have anything thrown into it. (Great videos on Facebook on AFN Okinawa.) And at least I still had water, unlike a lot of people.

    The masked man in the Sartre section is a US Navy aviator wearing a cold weather mask. I can’t find anything specific on this type of mask, but it would have been us similar types were used for low-altitude flying (below 10,000 feet, where oxygen was unnecessary) in freezing conditions. An air gunner in the Aleutians might have worn it.

    Care needs be taken with the family jewels when seating oneself.
    Seating should only be undertaken while cold sober.
    Horns need be coated with Vaseline in case of bad aim, loaded or sober.
