    I got my mum an Evolve Darwin fish (she's a Biology teacher).

    That was the only thing on her car until it was stolen (the fish, not the car).

    one of my good friends from college has his birthday today. I sent him a text, and as it went through I noticed the last text exchange between the two of us was exactly 1 year ago when I last wished him a happy birthday

    hmm

    Man, I love it when my Browser has a small hiccup while I'm dragging around some tabs, and some of the tabs end up in my bookmarks toolbar.

    And then I don't notice my bookmarks have changed until days later.

    A friend of mine got engaged last night

    at a party I really didn't want to attend

    so happy he is getting married to a really great guy, they're a fantastic pair and the proposal was really sweet

    but FML aside from that I had a miserable night.

    My favorite is still (from a while ago) the new World of Warcraft class: the Bard.

    With a UI completely ripped from Guitar Hero

    the best part being the reveal had full class details, equipment, spells, and talent trees

    Including "Axe Specialization"

    Just that level of dedication to getting extra puns in the small details

    so good.

    Bumper Stickers: They make you look like a cunt.

    Bumper stickers reveal link to road rage
    Bumper stickers such as “Make Love, Not War” and “More Trees, Less Bush” speak volumes about a vehicle's driver — but maybe not in the way they might hope. People who customize their cars with stickers and other adornments are more prone to road rage than other people, according to researchers in Colorado.
    ...
    The researchers recorded whether people had added seat covers, bumper stickers, special paint jobs, stereos and even plastic dashboard toys. They also asked questions about how the participants responded to specific driving situations.

    To keep the participants from realizing that the team was collecting information about aggressive driving, questions such as “If someone is driving slow in the fast lane, how angry does this make you?” were interspersed with decoy questions such as “What kind of music do you listen to in the car?”. Szlemko's team used a pre-existing scale called “Use of vehicle to express anger” to diagnose the presence of road rage in their participants.

    People who had a larger number of personalized items on or in their car were 16% more likely to engage in road rage, the researchers report in the journal <i>Applied Social Psychology</i>

    I do not doubt the amount that each of those figures worked. A highly productive individual in the prime of his intellectual/professional life could easily work the majority of the day every day.

    I doubt that

    1) The hours are as accurate as the infographic implies, particularly for the pre-industrialization luminaries. I've read plenty of material that suggests that prior to industrialization (and in preindustrialized cultures today) there's a +/-30m margin of error for timekeeping (perhaps as little as 10m if we're talking about people who would have had access to an accurate clockwork pocketwatch, eg Ben Franklin). Saying "I work from 9am to 2pm" might actually mean "I work from 9:15ish to 2ish."

    2) The hours did not shift from day to day, again particularly for pre-industrialization figures. I think it's more likely that most of these folks woke up X hours before or after dawn, which means the exact time would have shifted from season to season.

    3) The hours are as unbroken as the infographics imply. People self-report that they "work" or "sleep" from X to Y, but most people can't work productively for 6-8 hours at a time, and lots of people (especially, again, pre-industrialization) don't have unbroken sleep from X to Y. I think it's more likely that most of those people had undeclared breaks in their work & sleep patterns that aren't reflected there.

    Wonderful, having to explain how faxes are linear connections and that it's physically impossible to get page 3 before page 1, or just page 3 is a wonderful time.

    You can get pages 1-3, 1-2, or 1, but never just 3.

Like when someone goes "EST. I work on Saturdays" I had to just kind of assume that he meant he was only free Sundays. And then there were dudes who listed a bunch of games that weren't in the OP and not a single one that was. Those people may be disappointed and I feel kind of bad but also like...sorry bro

    The OED Gets All C-Wordy. You Should Too.
    Among the Oxford English Dictionary's list of "new word entries" for March 2014 are the following four adjectives:
    • cunted
    • cunting
    • cuntish
    • cunty

    In what has turned out to be a rather cunt-happy month at the OED, these "subentries" were added as well:
    • cunt lapper
    • cunt-bitten
    • cunt-sucker

    If cunted sounds crude, it nevertheless has a place in a lexicon that comfortably embraces labels like cocksucker, dickhead, and even asshole. The fact is that much of modern English has been influenced by writers like Shakespeare, whose Malvolio slyly spells out C-U-N-T in Twelfth Night, and Chaucer, who used the more quaint-looking queynte. As New York-based journalist Lauren Davidson noted recently, "It really does seem only fair that if Shakespeare, Geoffrey Chaucer, James Joyce and D.H. Lawrence—a bunch of old white men—could use it rather joyfully, why shouldn't we?"
