Miscellany 14

Just a collection of assorted things.

First, I’ve heard beautiful women described as “hot,” and I’ve heard of “hot sex,” but even given that, I’m surprised to find out that someone caught fire while watching porn.

Staying with the subject of sex for a moment, this is a wonderful practical joke.

    Your link for the dessert leads to a WordPress installation screen. I agree that WordPress is pretty sweet, but I think there may be a problem here.

    You’re right. It didn’t, yesterday. Even going to the main page of the blog produces the install screen. I guess there’s nothing to do at the moment but leave the link as-is and hope it comes back soon. In case it doesn’t come back, it was a recipe for butterbeer cupcakes.

    The post I linked dates back to 2010, so other sites have picked up the recipe and reposted it, such as here.
