If you’ve never experienced soul-crushing depression but want to know what it’s like via badly-drawn (yet somehow perfect) cartoons, now’s your chance! It’s excellent…the bit about the corn kernel is especially good. This is obviously not happy reading, but if you’ve “been there” you will definitely relate to it. And if you’ve never been through this kind of thing, maybe this will help you empathize a little more with those who have. You can still read Part 1 too, it’s great.
For my Android peeps (do people still say “peeps”? I’m never sure): if you’re tired of the unmitigated craptacularity of the Facebook app for Android, you need to install this right now. It does almost everything the official app does, and this app actually works.
Note: IF you use Adblock, you’ll need to change your network settings from “localhost” port 2020 back to the default setting while you log into Atrium, then change it back once you’re in. Took me forever to figure this out, but now I know…
I don’t know what’s crazier: the story or the second comment on the story. I couldn’t help but leave my own response.
I ripped this ad out of a magazine about 15 years ago because subliminal ads have been an interest of mine for a long time, and I thought this was kinda funny & clever since the ad isn’t even for alcohol (it’s for a tech company). I recently found it in a shoebox of similar stuff and had to share.
Allegedly, ice cubes used to be a favorite place to hide subliminal words and images (usually “sex” or images of nekkid ladies, etc.) in ads for alcohol and soft drinks. A lot of old-timer admen say that the whole subliminal thing never happened, but I’ve seen some pretty convincing examples. Even if it didn’t happen, it’s a fun concept!
This is an interesting little read. I do like the new flat design trend, but some things are being flattened a little too much… Google is doing a pretty good job with keeping their designs easy on the eyes, so I wonder what Apple has up their sleeve for iOS 7. This is the kind of thing that leads to lawsuits in the Apple universe!
Ohhhh, I’ll bet they do!
A million years after “Ghostbusters”, I finally hear a different song by Ray Parker Jr. That voice crackle thing he does with every single word he sings gets old REAL fast!
A very well-worded and thoughtful answer to the question, “How do you find happiness in life as an atheist?” It’s a common perception that people who don’t believe in a supreme being must be living a life of hopelessness and without purpose, and while that’s likely true for a few, it’s not for all. It’s just a matter of how you view your place in the world and the universe.
Shouldn’t we expect better in this day and age? Nope, because ‘MURICA!
Stuff like this makes me want to go live on a small island somewhere. Preferably one with internet…
