Hmm.  There was this one version about the quick brown fox jumping the lazy dog over and over, but depending on the context it might have been considered obscene.   Besides, it was longer unnecessarily.

"Sphinx of black quartz, judge my vow" is objectively the best, having fewer repeated letters than either of the other two.

But probably not practical because

A) You couldn't possibly get it into elementary textbooks in Texas.  Fundie parents will be afraid that some reference to a beast belonging to the pantheon of a pagan religion is DEMON WORSHIP!

B) While there is widespread agreement on how to spell "Sphinx" and "Quartz", there are a lot of people who aren't in on the agreement for "Sphinx" (they tend to write "Sphynx") and a lot of people to whom "Quartz" is less familiar than "Quarts" and they will therefore mishear and/or misspell it that way even though it makes no sense.

Long and wholesome post that I put in a spoiler. Enjoy

I want to love something as much as America loves Mr. Rogers. Even Mr. Dressup (Canadian Mr. Rogers..sort of) doesn't garner that level of adoration.

And as xkcd pointed out, moving to a Rogers street and getting a cat named Mr. is a guarantee that your kid will never go into pr0n.

That Mr. Rogers story is beautiful. I wish I'd had someone like him to watch on TV growing up.

whatever you do, DO NOT turn off your filters and google "roger cat"

Trust me on this.  I haven't done it, I won't do it, and I'm pretty sure what would come up if I did and that's why I won't.

How insensitive! The map lumps those three countries together as Poor Mexico, when they're clearly English Mexico, Dutch Mexico and French Mexico.

Since my glasses finally gave in after eight years of mistreatment and being slept on, I got the new ones today. And ho-leeeee sheet, I hadn't realised how badly it was micro-scratched. I can see (almost) properly again!

I have not seen this movie (Pentagon Wars) but not only is this hysterical, based on real events, but I think it also illustrates any kind of project inside a large organisation where the bosses get to put in their input. Whether its studio interference on a movie/tv show or trying to design the next iphone, this seems relevant:

I saw a comment from someone on how to properly prepare merganser duck:

"Use Olive oil on a pine board, put the cleaned merganser on the board, and put both in the oven at 400F. Wait 30 minutes, throw out the merganser, and eat the board."
