I've just written a brief op-ed on the Great Haribo Schism over at [livejournal.com profile] pastafarians. Oh yeah, if I hadn't already mentioned it, [livejournal.com profile] venganza_fsm, you know what to do...

Swords iconIn addition, [livejournal.com profile] innerbrat has made the icon we talked about Sunday, one that will definately be of interest to [livejournal.com profile] faeriecween and [livejournal.com profile] freddiefraggles

And then we have [livejournal.com profile] unimag's guide to American spotting online, well worth a read:
Food Obsession
No, this isn't an 'Americans are fat' comment5; I'm talking about posting pictures of food. And talking about food. At every opportunity. When a British person posts about having a meal, we post about what happened during the meal - anecdotes that were told, stupid stuff that happened, people getting insulted, Aunt Gladys choking to death on the meringue... entertaining things like that.

Americans, on the other hand, post about the food. With pictures of the food. If we're especially lucky, the people who were actually eating the food might get mentioned (in passing), but only if it doesn't shift the focus away from the food too much.

Yes but Jack's a complex character, yo. His entire problem solving methodology can't really be summed up in one icon.

Unless, I suppose, the answer is "rum."
