Weekend Open Thread: Your Peripheral Vision is Mocking You

 Powered by Max Banner Ads 

That which is seen out of the corner of your eye cannot be unseen out of the corner of your eye.  Seriously, try this — and welcome to Toon Town.

(I can’t get it to resize properly for our site, so if you want to see the original with a full two faces rather than 1.5, here’s the link.)

If you can get past that, enjoy your weekend open thread. Talk about that demonstration or anything else you’d like, within reasonable bounds of taste and decorum.

Ashley Judd

Has it occurred to you that there really is no way to illustrate a story about what you see out of your peripheral vision properly because the illustration won’t be seen with your peripheral vision? It finally occurred to me, so — after an annoying couple of days of Mitch McConnell and Rand Paul, I’m happy to bring you the next (and first decent in a long time) Senator from the Commonwealth of Kentucky, Ashley Judd!


About Greg Diamond

Prolix worker's rights and government accountability attorney. General Counsel of CATER, the Coalition of Anaheim Taxpayers for Economic Responsibility, a non-partisan group of people sick of local corruption. Deposed as Northern Vice Chair of DPOC in April 2014 when his anti-corruption and pro-consumer work in Anaheim infuriated the Building Trades and Teamsters in spring 2014, who then worked with the lawless and power-mad DPOC Chair to eliminate his internal oversight. Runs for office sometimes, so far to offer a challenge to someone nasty who would otherwise have run unopposed. Someday he might pick a fight intending to win it rather than just to dent someone. You'll know it when you see it. None of his pre-putsch writings ever spoke for the Democratic Party at the local, county, state, national, or galactic level. A family member works part-time as a campaign treasurer. He doesn't directly profit from that relatively small compensation and it doesn't affect his coverage. (He does not always favor her clients, though she might hesitate to take one that he hated. He does advise some local campaigns informally and generally without compensation. If that changes, he will declare the interest. He also runs a less frequently published blog called "The Brean," for his chosen hometown, where he is now fighting with its wealthiest and most avaricious citizen-donors. This just seems to be his way.
