Be sure to hang in at least long enough for the unforgettable theme song, starting around the minute-and-a-half mark.

Federal Employee of the Year:  2011

2011 Federal Employee of the Year from Partnership for Public Service on Vimeo.



It takes a huge talent for boredom to make one of the worst disasters of the past decade seem vapid. "The pressure was somewhere between high and low." Duh....

Weird Snowmen



Evil snowmen is a horror trope that had never occurred to me. But I'm sure it's in one Stephen King novel or another already.



Anthropomorphic icicles is another notion I was blissfully unfamiliar with. Can they really run far enough and fast enough to the north to escape Spring?
