This artist uses jigsaw puzzles, with the same die cut pattern, to make these terrific mashups

quote [ Oh boy, I think I have a new hobby. I've just learned that you can combine puzzles, that have the same die cut, to make really awesome pieces of art. It had never occurred to me that manufacturers of mass-produced puzzles cut different puzzles of theirs in the same way, making the pieces interchangeable. ]

He makes the jigsaw fit

quote [ Matt, Will & Chris sum up the aftermath of the midterm elections, defend Western civilization from those who would destroy it, and check in on insufferable public intellectual Bernard Henri Levy's one ]

Amazon chooses NYC, Northern Virginia for new headquarters

quote [ Amazon is expected to evenly divide its pledged 50,000 new jobs between the new offices, according to the Wall Street Journal, which first reported the news. ]

Why not - because you sure as hell wouldn't want West Virginia, or Mississippi, or any of the myriad of rust-belt states that has the space and need for the jobs to have them. Of course, why would Appalachia want to train or prep for jobs like these anyway, when they were all waiting on that giant comeback of coal mining they were promised?

BeforeGrand Theft Auto there was SCAM: The Game of International Dope Smuggling

quote [ Monopoly recently released a new version of its board game called the “Cheaters Edition.” It’s exactly what you think it is. Instead of moving around the board purchasing property like society has educated us to do, players are now encouraged to LIE and CHEAT their way to commodity and wealth. Because life isn’t supposed to be fair. ]

No scam too outrageous

Music Maker Relief Foundation - Preserving the Soul of America's Music

quote [ “I used to tap dance,” he says. “I did the same beat with my feet as my hands, but now my hips are too sticky. Algia Mae and I used to go around. We can’t dance anymore because she’s had a stroke and I’ve had a couple of strokes. Her son does it now.” ]

Website is a little convoluted but features very good material and a newsletter – did you know one of the Como Mamas was victim of a drive-by-shooting?

I recommend reading about / buying the ”Biscuits For Your Outside Man” sampler.
