Be very careful in your selection of a Best Man.

All cats are stars.

The perfect crime.

Teamwork makes the scheme work.

Two friends out for a stroll.

I think I'm going to make one of these.

Your cat almost certainly wants to kill you, too. It's their nature.

Cat shows he's bad.

Inman: Forked. Nitter version Here, but it's very slow-loading/nearly unreachable.

Content warning: Driver says "Nah" to antifa soy warrior trying to stop his vehicle. Nitter version here.


Really good: Not only does the dog lifeguard the little kid away from the pond, he then gets a tool to help him retrieve the lost ball.


Cats, man.

Prophecy?

Duncanthrax will be upset to know that this blog is seguing away from a bat-based blog to a whale-based one.

That's a 22 degree solar halo with sun dogs.

A 22 [degree] halo is an optical phenomenon that belongs to the family of ice-crystal halos. Its form is a ring with an apparent radius of approximately 22 [degree] around the Sun or Moon. Its radius is roughly the length of an outstretched hand at arm's length.[1] When visible around the Moon, it is called a moon ring or winter halo. It forms as sunlight or moonlight is refracted by millions of hexagonal ice crystals suspended in the atmosphere.
A sun dog (or sundog) or mock sun, also called a parhelion[1] (plural parhelia) in meteorology, is an atmospheric optical phenomenon that consists of a bright spot to one or both sides of the Sun. Two sun dogs often flank the Sun within a 22 [degree] halo.

The sun dog is a member of the family of halos caused by the refraction of sunlight by ice crystals in the atmosphere. Sun dogs typically appear as a pair of subtly colored patches of light, around 22 [degrees] to the left and right of the Sun, and at the same altitude above the horizon as the Sun. They can be seen anywhere in the world during any season, but are not always obvious or bright. Sun dogs are best seen and most conspicuous when the Sun is near the horizon.
