||I see dumb people

|Today was largely spent waiting for the repairman to install the new part and fix the furnace. He ended up replacing another part as well, and the furnace works correctly now. Just imagine, if we were homeowners, we'd owe him a few hundred bucks. Since we're renting, it's covered by the rent. Now that the furnace is dealt with, my room is back in order.
After he left mom and I did some fast shopping. Mostly we just had to pick a few things up. Naturally I had to get some of the infamous $7/pound deli chicken. Unfortunately, the only tenders out were packaged oddly; each package had only half or less of what the packages normally contain. Not to be out done, I got a package of Boneless Buffalo Chicken Wings instead. As it turns out the only real difference between the boneless wings and the tenders is the price: the boneless wings are half the price of the tenders.
I spent part of the evening fussing with threads. This only slightly went well. The more important idea worked fine, but the other idea has serious speed issues.
And Happy Hanukkah!
Today's links have something in common: they all feature idiots.
One comic lover discovered that the stupid comics of the Silver Age (such as Jimmy Olsen's misadventures or Little Dot) greatly outsold today's "serious" comics.
What do Tweety Bird, Donald Duck and Mickey Mouse have in common? They were all summoned to testify in a court case.
After the link yesterday about Iran not having nukes, nobody is going to be surprised that I'm going to link to this guy's response.
Lastly, here's an airplane safety video for Virgin America. It's rather funny. Note the bull fighter, his bull, and the computer gaming nun.
