“Senator Feinstein tried to warn anyone that would listen that it wasn’t the KY Jelly Computer Scare -- when world-wide computers were going to get lubed up by a sexual lubricant virus, um, whereupon the finicky machines would be unable to gain traction-momentum and flip their little doohickeys from the last year of the 20th Century to the first year of the 21st Century -- wasn’t the real threat. Nor afterwards, when all motorized deliveries would cease, cell phones implode, yak sales skyrocket, and life would come to a halt: except for certain survivalist cults led by guys with names like Zigfried, Basil, and Horace. But rather it was the Knuckleheads, which believe such things, that folks really had to worry about. But of course, history proved the Knuckleheads right; the world did end at the very beginning of the Twenty-First Century, uh, even if no one really noticed -- though, after Tower Books shut their doors with their End of the Earth Sale the destruction of the planet was announced on C-Span every Thursday for a year.”

A carbuncle is a roiled mass of skin or a beautiful gem. The incredible gem is pictured in the logo below and at the bottom of the short story section...

All quoted sources are noted. I am responsible for all posts. The only blogs not time-dated are those advertising nonprofits. All nonprofits are vetted, investigated, though after the summer of 2018 my vetting has lapsed: (6/1/21).
