So I’m taking Chinese now. I can count to ten and ask you your name and stuff. But let’s get to some links, eh? But first, a picture from my Awesome McAwesome Smallpox-is-your-friend-no-really-love-columbus Weekend:
Chrome Browser Tweak: Have that right-click option to “Set as Wallpaper.”
The Battle of the New-Fangled Blankets. (My snuggie is somewhere, I’m sure).
I love it when OKCupid crunches data. This time they looked at gay people, who, strangely enough, are pretty much like straight people, except for the whole liking the same gender part.
Things you do that annoy the chef. It is a personal philosophy to never annoy the chef unless you are actually better at making that thing on my plate, which I never am.
Wallpaper made out of your photography? Narcissism or awesome? I say both.
Ways to keep that old Windows machine keep on plugging, without having to pay me $25/hr to do it. (Related: I’m starting a consulting business; this advice ain’t free.)
Also, once again the SAT appears mostly to show the aptitude your parents have to pay for college.
Flowchart of female characters in Hollywood. Srsly, this is what we watch. Eff this, I’m gonna go grab some Edith Wharton and a glass of cider.
Apparently women don’t do start-up businesses (mostly tech) b/c they are crazed baby-making machines. Thankfully, Jezebel provides a rebuttal.
I’m not a huge Mother Jones fan, but this amusing/depressing infographic which sorts the Senate/House by type of funding made me laugh/cry.
On the horrible trend of “Compulsive Heterosexuality,” among young men, in which the mantra of “If I beat up fags, I can’t be one” is repeated often. It later appears in politics, methinks. An excellent article on a seldom-discussed issue.
I want to be read these authors.
Another Plus-Model trashes the model industry. Frankly I like her better his way.
If you haven’t seen it yet, the Grover Old Spice Ad Parody will make you chortle.
And a current fave quote from Giullermo del Toro: “If you get bored with nothing to do, you are not a writer.”
