2020 Draft!

I’m admit­ted­ly a bit of a polit­i­cal junkie (and it’s my day job!) but I found this much very amus­ing. Like a sports show, but about pol­i­tics! Also, I’m not against an Al Franken pres­i­den­cy. Source: Our Way-Too-Ear­­ly 2020 Demo­c­ra­t­ic Pri­ma­ry Draft | FiveThir­tyEight

Time lapse at sea is really beautiful

I could do with both less cap­tioned com­men­tary and more actu­al com­men­tary. The cap­tions take away from the expe­ri­ence, but the com­men­tary real­ly enhances it. First world prob­lems. Hat tip: Kot­tke

A near perfect tweet

I don’t do this often (enough?) but this tweet from Won­derel­la is so pitch per­fect on the top­ic of the Oxford Dic­tio­nary and Miley Cyrus, that I can’t help myself: The Oxford Dic­tio­nary added an entry on “Twerk­ing”. They removed “Dig­ni­ty” to make room, since we weren’t using it any­way.— Won­derel­la (@wonderella) August 28, 2013

A Tax on People Who Are Bad at Math

Here is what is annoy­ing about the lot­tery. If the two peo­ple who won yes­ter­day had played the Power­ball Sim­u­la­tor twice a week for the equiv­a­lent of 7,000 years (like I did yes­ter­day), they would not have won (like I did not win). Then they would have said to them­selves, “Self, them is some bad […]

Love your dog? Want a good cry?

My office mate, who has three dogs, sent me a link to this movie. I start­ed to watch it, real­ized what it was about, and hasti­ly stopped play­back. After I screwed up the courage, I watched it with the sound off. I don’t think I would have made it through with the sound on. So […]

MMOD technology fascinates me

Yes, I’m watch­ing some bas­ket­ball these days. Actu­al­ly, right this minute. I have a very lit­tle expe­ri­ence with stream­ing video (hey‑o, Creighton!) but despite that I remain inter­est­ed in stream­ing tech. At least enough to find this arti­cle on the tech­nol­o­gy behind CBS’ March Mad­ness On Demand offer­ings pret­ty inter­est­ing. Maybe even fas­ci­nat­ing. But I […]

Order Yourself an Offbeat Soda Pop

I saw this a year ago, and thought the basic idea of this store was so cool that I went ahead and ordered a case of weird sodas. They sell stuff you can find at your local organic/specialty store, but they also car­ry nano-brew sodas I’ve nev­er seen before (or since). Super expen­sive, all things […]
