Stuff around the net

the One Ring Net has  tee shirts on sale.

they also have a "may the dwarves be with you" teeshirt.

Dustbury notes that the IRS site for refund questions is off line this weekend.

I checked, and yup it is:

Where's My Refund - It's Quick, Easy and Secure.

Planned Outage: May 23 — May 28, 2013
This service will be unavailable beginning approximately 7:00 p.m. ET on Thursday, May 23, 2013 until approximately 5:00 a.m. ET on Tuesday, May 28, 2013, due to several factors, including scheduled maintenance.

"several factors"? what does that mean? Dustbury has included a top ten list of why:

  1. IRS accidentally got put on the Sequester List
  2. All the field agents’ cars ran out of gas at about the same time
  3. Joe Biden’s doing some replanting, if you know what I mean
  4. Cost of buying votes unexpectedly rose 4.5% this year
  5. Nobody remembers who was supposed to renew domain
  6. Congressional health plan expanded to include polygraph tests
  7. Had to cover Antonio Villaraigosa’s unemployment check
  8. Eric Holder had to subpoena himself, causing an endless loop in government computers
  9. Tim Geithner’s late with his payment again
  10. Hey, them drones ain’t cheap


For later reading because it comes in several parts:

Father L links to an older series of posts on Frodo Baggins...


Also book marked for later reading: David Warren's essay on the Pope who actually talks about the devil in plain language.

this might explain why the "scientific" Christianity and the social work-Catholicism of post Vatican II is being left behind while the Pentecostals surge in Latin America, Africa and Asia...


Insomnia download of the day: History of Russia.


Your tax dollars at work: There is a shortage of INH, one of the basic Tuberculosis drugs...

USN has a report here.
more HERE.

Update: apparently the only FDA approved source of the basic ingredient needed to manufacture it came from Japan and that plant shut down from the tsunami. However, you can still get INH in Europe and everywhere else: it's just not FDA approved.
