Scott Adams Blog: Confidence 01/04/2011 →
Ok, that’s it—I’ve never been able to register as a commenter to engage in discussion on Scott Adams’ blog (the registration page goes off into never-never land then reloads), so I’ll post it here. This is bunk. Google “will power marshmallows” for a good example of will power as a real thing. I think this is the last straw for me in terms of reading...

Why is idiots believing nonsense a serious PR problem? These are the same people who don’t think that they can listen to MP3s they rip on an iPod or that they can’t view PDFs on an iPad. My guess is that Apple doesn’t want these bozos as customers. Apple is not about market share, it’s about profit and I’m pretty sure they’re doing fine in that dept. Let...
Mr. Burns: Ah, my beloved plant. How I miss her…Bah! To Hell with this! Get my razors! Draw a bath! Get these Kleenex boxes off my feet! Smithers: Certainly, sir. And, uh, the jars of urine? Mr. Burns: Oh, we’ll hang onto those.

Remove the leaves from mint to use as a garnish later. Mash the cup and a half of mint stems and leaves with the...

Prostitution Style →
BlazingShark: “why is she dressed prostitution style today - where was she this AM?” 2:06 PM Jan 13th from web boxspring: @BlazingShark Does In’N’Out have “prostitution style” as one of their “secret” menu items?

Come on Lisa, monkeys!
So I mentioned this really interesting article about sex research to my ex and this inspired her to Google a lot of “animals mating” videos. As usual, I phrased my response in the form of a Simpsons’ quote: Lisa Simpson: Hey look. There’s a cyber cafe opening right here in Springfield. Will you take me dad? Please! I’ll show you how to order pizza over the...
Outsource What You Suck At
When I first moved to LA, it was the first time I’d lived anywhere without a clothes washer/dryer on site. I’d lived in houses on the East Coast which by definition have laundry rooms. Other than a brief (a few weeks?) period when the band house I lived in didn’t have a working washing machine (due first to a negligent landlord and then compounded by our own attempts at...
Hadn’t cleaned out the spam traps in a while…10,000 messages in there! That’s an hour of my life I’d like back.
