So before we get to pictures from the last day at Pinburgh 2017, here's what turned up on my humor blog this past week. You can put it on your reading page, and get articles as they're posted. Or you can add it to your RSS feed, and read articles at your leisure and in your preferred format.
- How To Remember A Fact which was last week's big essay and which I feel kind of like coming back to and rewriting because I think there's a good idea in here that should be presented better.
- Update On The Non-Despairing Auto Car Place Sign
- Statistics Saturday: Why Nerds Stop Telling A Joke which is a prank as nerds have never stopped telling a joke.
- What’s Going On In Rex Morgan, M.D.? Who Was That Incompetent Mugger? August – November 2018
- I Don’t Know Who’s Officially Writing Spider-Man Now in the wake of official author Stan Lee's death.
- The Stan Freberg Show: the tenth show, as things fall apart most of which are musical instruments.
- Who’s Writing and Drawing Alley Oop Now? Who Is Li’l Alley Oop? some comic strip news.
- Everything There Is To Say About Keeping Your Hands Warm as written by someone whose hands are never warm.

One of the local birds who caught our eye as being particularly interesting and personable.
See what I mean? That's a pigeon interested in the world around him or her.
One of those shops we kept passing, and hoped we'd finally have time to visit on Sunday. They were closed.
This front door photo proves it was taken in 2017.
Back to ReplayFX! Here's somebody doing what I guess is Star Wars cosplay? I don't know. At the risk of sounding sour I've reached the point I don't feel like I need to know Star Wars stuff anymore.
Trivia: In 1913 Lieutenant Commander Milton Rosenau of the Chelsea Naval Hospital won the American Medicine Gold Medal for proving that stable flies transmitted poliomyelitis. In 1915 Simon Flexner would prove this was wrong. The men stayed friends. Source: The Great Influenza: The Story of the Deadliest Pandemic in History, John M Barry.
