Hunc nunc. Hunc nunc? Hunc nunc!

   “Wenn ist das Nunstück git und Slotermeyer? Ja! Beiherhund das Oder die Flipperwaldt gersput!”

Here’s the recording of last night’s (2019-11-08) KNYO and KMEC Memo of the Air: Good Night Radio show ready to re-enjoy. (Left-click for instant-play. Right-click to download.) And thanks to Hank Sims of Lost Coast Outpost here’s a page with the latest show and also other ones going back a couple of years. And you can go to Links To Recorded Audio, see above, and hear older shows yet, though the farther back in time you try to go, the less likely it is to work right, just like real life.

Besides all that, here are links to further worthwhile educational and/or sensational items that I set aside for you while gathering the show together, found mostly thanks to the fine websites listed to your right:

How we get rubbers. This factory is in Thailand, which explains the narrator’s BBC accent. But it turns out that, far and away, Maylasia supplies the world with rubbers, of course, in hindsight.

As Event Horizon, the film, is to 2001: A Space Odyssey, this is to Monty Python’s /The Joke That Won The War/. WARNING. HORRIBLE.

Rerun: Monty Python’s /The Joke/ sketch. Warning, delightful. (And deadly. If you use Google Translate to get English back from the German version of the joke, it results: /FATAL ERROR/, and a good thing, too.

Do it yourself. How to watch the entire development of a chicken embryo into a live peeping baby chicken in your own kitchen. It involves a plastic cup, some vinyl food wrap, and calcium DL-lactate pentahydrate.* (I’m suggesting the obvious continuation of the project to the chicken salad stage. That isn’t shown here.) (*Whatever you do, don’t substitute in G-23 paxilon hydrochlorate, because the resulting chicken can become highly aggressive, committing unspeakable acts including cannibalism, rape, and self-mutilation. “What’ll happen if they take the ship?” “If they take the ship, they’ll rape us to death, eat our flesh, and sew our skins into their clothing. And, if we’re very, very lucky, they’ll do it in that order.” Anyway, read labels and use as directed in the proper quantities.)

Octopocle limbo. It seems cruel to put it through this, but we’re assured that it’s not being hurt. It seems to me that the captive octopockle is already in a sort of limbo, between worlds. Forcing it to literally /do/ the limbo is a little on the nose, or beak, rather.

The amazing Wham-O Air Blaster toy. You might have to turn the sound all the way up on the video. Not because in your youth you were deafened by a Wham-O Air Blaster toy, but because they just recorded it too low.
