Cell biology

Exposed to a harsh environment constituted out of, uh, reality, the rightoplasm is easily damaged. In order to protect this delicate tissue, a graduated barrier grows up around the rightoplasm. The outermost layer, the cell lamebrane, is thin but tough: it detects environmental information, reverses its polarity, and passes the results through to the thick, sluggish matter lining its internal surfaces. This second layer, the lietoplasm, is itself completely insensitive to external information, but is highly chemically excitable when stimulated by the reversed product passed onto it by the cell lamebrane. Its hyperactive responses serve to distribute the anti-information throughout the internal structures of the rightoplasm.
From the comments.

Pleh. Let's leave the prose to the professionals, m'kay? Behold this exquisite nonpareil from Mark Belling, via Mpeterson:

"These roundabouts are popping up all over Wisconsin this fall. The state Department of Transportation 'planners' (aka dorks) are dropping them at every major highway construction project in the state.

"Five (five!!!) are about to land in Delafield. Several more are nightmarishly being set up near Richfield where highways 41 and 45 split up."

Belling is genuinely surprised that snow machines and ATVs are prohibited from a bike/footpath (which is 30 miles long, the bridge over I-43 only part of it). Maybe a tunnel would have been cheaper, or a dirigible ferry service.
