    I’ll bet you tried to spell it phonetically; that’s how I got only “Wat Phra Kaew” on my first try.

    Saturday Night Live recently announced it will have 30% less commercial time next season. TV Guide gave that one of their weekly "Jeer"s with the comment that they’d be replacing the income with product placements [in the sketches]. I find EB3’s inclusion of “HP” in his comment awkward and irritating, so I’m offering up this possible explanation just to clear my head and body.

    Okay; let’s see if I can create today’s hidden link.

    It is the regular size on GoComics that is reduced, distorting what could be easily seen in the newspaper. In a lot of comics here, what looks like cross-hatching turns into dot dithering at the zoomed size (but not this one). I forget the correct newspaper term for that. I remember as a kid in the 70s watching a photo attached to a cylinder being read by a light beam and sensor.

    Beautiful execution. Well done. I was completely surprised and delighted.

    I think they’re talking about how far the guy in green has gotten watching a set of pre-recorded episodes of a show, perhaps on his DVR or from Netflix.

    Yes, I could have picked a more accurate metaphor than “high-octane”; it’s one that was popular in my youth when few people knew what “high octane” actually meant to the function of an engine. I can’t think of any other popular ones right now.

    I think he’s referring to his commitment to the high-octane life and then dramatizing it by and heading out to wherever one goes for that.

    I think context has a major affect on what spices we like. I didn’t understand horseradish until I was visiting a woman’s house who had some thin sliced roast beef and offered me horseradish to go with it. I told her I’d never had it and she proceeded to tell me about the horseradish nose orgasm and guided me to the theretofore unimaginable experience.

    When I was in high school I worked as a dishwasher at a sort-of restaurant with a banquet room where I got to indulge in quite a few real Crème de Menthe parfaits on lucky days. The “parfait” was then lodged in my mind as a very great thing.

    Later, after college and moving to Boston, I liked a restaurant where the only ice cream desert was a ginger parfait. The parfait (“perfect”) nomenclature had me trying my best to find enjoyment in it. When I don’t remember that failed effort, I think I remember liking ginger. I do enjoy gingerbread this time of year, but I know with enough sugar, almost anything can be entertaining.

    I’m with you on that one.
