"The building has had problems over its life. It leaked severely enough after a heavy storm in 1970 that the Finance Department had to stretch a tarpaulin across the ceiling.[1] Today many of its 87 roofs leak[2] and it has also become expensive to heat." - fuck starchitects. - Andrew C (✔)

You can compliment someone's cheekbones or jawline, but apparently it's "creepy" to just compliment their entire skull.
Granted, I could also see you getting slapped for complimenting someone on their zygomatic processes or their impressive mastoids. - Victor Ganata from iPhone

RT @JZdziarski: @violetblue getting your research from a guy on reddit named 420weed. How journalist of you.
The average American man has a waist of 39.7 inches. The top-selling pant/trouser size in the U.S. is a 34.
Is this a mean/median discrepancy? - John (bird whisperer)
If it works like women's clothing, they may just not manufacture/carry as many units in the higher sizes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Maybe people with smaller waist sizes buy more clothes... - Bren from iPhone
I'm just thinking that if significantly overweight men outnumber significantly underweight men, then the mean waist size would be larger than the median waist size, even without any effect from clothing choices. IOW, if "average" means "mean," then the most common pant size would be smaller than the average waist size. - John (bird whisperer)
I'm a size 34. Stop buying my pants y'all. - SAM
I think it's also a disparity between nominal size and real size. "For one, "vanity sizing" — where the actual size of a garment is bigger than advertised in an effort to flatter you — is not just for women anymore. Gribbin says the waist measurement in a man's pant is generally 1.5 to 2 inches larger than the stated size. (Or up to 5 inches, if you're shopping at Old Navy.)" - Andrew C (✔)
Also, "Secondly, guys with a waist bigger than 35 to 36 inches tend to have a prominent belly, Gribbin says. The more it sticks out, the lower men wear their pants. "They can wear a smaller size, and though the belly hanging over is not the most attractive sight, most men don't care," Gribbin says." - Andrew C (✔)
Good points Andrew - Todd Hoff
The hubby wears 30's, which means I can usually find pretty good deals, unless all those people with fat kids hit the store, first. (he's a short guy, so he needs the shortest length I can find, and I usually have to hem them for him.) - April Russo

Take care when you ironically mimic monsters lest you also start using "idk" sincerely.

Why do rugs creep in one direction? Most of the time they get an equal amount of foot traffic in opposite directions, I'd imagine.
The same reason for all asymmetry in the universe. Whichever direction it starts off in is random but self-reinforcing. - Victor Ganata

"Exactly 800 years ago on Sunday, in a field next to what is now the airport of Lille, a battle was fought which determined the history of England." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Today few people in the UK have heard of Bouvines. It has none of the ring of an Agincourt or a Crecy. Probably that is because England lost it. But the battle of 27 July, 1214, was just as significant as England's later victories over the French. Maybe more so." - Maitani
Bouvines and Muret- two 'obscure' battles with huge impace. Imperial loss at Bouvines as crucial as English; northern French victory at Muret also key in shaping France and thus Europe - Pete
It's right. I had never heard of it. But it sounds like it's one of those rare times when a defeat was probably the best outcome. - Mark H
I dunno. John being defeated was probably good, but the French winning- not so much ;) - Pete
Hah, weren't Maldon and Hastings also defeats? - Victor Ganata
Maldon led to an EPIC poem though ;) - Pete

"This is a blog about the origins of speech, but what began? How can we tell it when we see it? Parents usually say their children have started talking when they have a couple of words. Linguists tend to look for some hint of grammar. Some experts look for a favorite generative procedure. So there is room for argument even before we come up with a single fact about the beginnings." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"...But there is a long list of "design features" that characterize human language. In the 1950s and 60s the linguist Charles Hockett worked out a list of properties that, taken as a whole, were supposedly unique to language, and the list has become one of the commonsense tests of language origins. If your theory ends up with something that includes Hockett's properties, you may be onto... more... - Maitani
