Pro-Active Papa Prevents Plug-Pulling!

Pinwheel Power!

Sometimes putting up a windmill and going off-grid doesn’t seem like such a loonbat idea. This would be one of those times.

Unemployed stroke victim Tony Duncan of Hiland Park, Florida has chained himself to his electricity meter to prevent Gulf Power corporation from shutting off the power to his house. Oh, he’s not doing it to preserve his right to enjoy watching tv in air-conditioned comfort; Tony’s 5-year-old daughter Makayla is seriously ill and requires a feeding tube and other medical equipment powered by, you guessed it, electricity.

Since last Thursday, when he first chained himself up, he’s received pledges enough to cover the electricity bill as well as job offers. Nice to know that even Florida comes through sometimes!

They take it black.

I’ve had so many technical difficulties I haven’t even been able to get back to this post until now! But it is (long past) time to announce our winner from a week ago. Both suggestions were good, but There Can Be Only One.

Sarah G. Says:

Jimmy found it much harder to pick out his next sibling than he originally thought.

Kudos (whatever they are; surely they don’t mean that vile little sticky candy bar? She deserves better) and imaginary swag to Sarah G, our winner this week. In keeping with our scientific theme, we hypothetically present this ultra-swanky grown-up chemical seticon from Pampalona, for mixing up concoctions both mysterious and powerful.
