So I intended to post Quickies on the weekends ever since there were Quickies, but I’ve kind of sucked at that so far. Since my life has quieted down a bit, I think I can handle it now. Plus, our readers have proved to be awesome at sending in links, so we have plenty to share. Remember, if you come across something you’d like to see in the Quickies, you can submit it via the contact form.
- A journalist (the Infiltrator) calls some pet psychics about his imaginary dog. A preview:
- Man sees image of Virgin Mary in motorcycle-accident wound. (Thanks, Emory!)
- Theoretical physicist Nima Arkani-Hamed talks extra dimensions and string theory. (Thanks, Mike!)
- Oh, and we missed World Naked Gardening Day. Well, feel free to participate anyway. In your own, privacy-fenced backyard. (By the way, the link is probably NSFW.)
I believe that my dog was President John F. Kennedy in a past life. Is this true?
Pet Psychic 8: There’s a real controversy when animals talk about whether they were a person before. And, I have to tell you, they do that a lot. They say they were nuns, or priests, or warriors. They are not necessarily lying.
Infiltrator: [Getting annoyed.] So was my dog JFK or not?
PP8: [Pause.] Harmon wasn’t exactly reincarnated into the president. But their energies really aligned and merged as one.
