Do Not Take Writing Advice from the Worst Muse
"Twitter account the Worst Muse isn't even a week old, but it's already a premiere source of hilarious writing advice. Below's a selection of our favorites." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"If a character has curves, make sure to specify that they are in all the right places. Otherwise, readers will be confused." - Jessie
"That "said" looks awfully lonely. Maybe you should give it an adverb friend. Maybe you should give them ALL adverb friends." - Jessie
"You're right. The world DOES need another novel about an aging English professor's affair with a nubile young co-ed." - Betsy
"It'd go over great if your narrator looked in the mirror and compared their own eyes to a really specific body of water." - Jessie
*immediately follows account* - Soup in a TARDIS
"This chapter is missing something. Try adding an epigraph. Maybe some Matchbox 20 lyrics." - Jessie
Oh man. Total warfare on genre and fanfic. Best account ever. - Akiva
very, very funny. - Brent Schaus

The full range of human ingenuity and perversity is fully exposed by the infinite variety of shower controls. They all have basically the same function and they all manage to do it differently with an equal lack of clarity.
An interesting user interface issue. - Sean McBride
I don't know that they all lack clarity. Ours is a single nob and a channel pin. The nob has a regular hot-cold layout, pull out for pressure, turn for temp. control. And then you can pull the channel pin to block the tub spout. - NOT THE CRICKET
How far do you move a dial to get what temperature? Which way is cold? Which way is hot? Which way is off? How do you control pressure? And can you control it without looking? How long does it take to warm up? - Todd Hoff
Half-inch to the left, is warm, inch or further is hot to scalding, dial centered, about room temperature, half-inch to the right water-temp is about 50F, I don't know if it gets colder. Both lines stay under pressure to the control valve, so if you turn left you're cutting off the cold water intake, if you turn right you're cutting off hot water intake, so it's super smooth temperature... more... - NOT THE CRICKET
My favorite shower, that I've only seen once (at a camp ground) had a single knob. Turn left for hot, right for cold, pull for water, push to shut off. It's amazing how many showers tie pressure into temperature, they should all be logical enough to have them separate! - Heather

Someone actually managed to create a file whose name was just /. I had to think a bit to figure out how to remove it.
Really tough to remove directories called "*", as well. My host used to create those when I would add a wildcard subdomain. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Huh, that's pretty cool. "Netflix is launching its first original anime series on July 4: the futuristic Knights of Sidonia. The first season, already broadcasted in Japan, is 12 episodes of space opera epic drama that apparently is full of cool spaceships and mechas." - rönin from Bookmarklet
Just watched the first 3 eps. Netflix did good picking this series up. - rönin

"There’s a good chance you’ve never heard of the company that goes by the name MS Optical, and we won’t blame you. It’s a one-man operation, run by Mr. Sadayasu Miyazaki from Honcho, Japan. But you might want to take not of them now. Specializing in unique lens designs, MS Optical focuses on creating small pancake lenses for the Leica M Mount. But MS Optical’s latest creation leaves the ‘pancake’ title in the dust… this thing should be called a crepe lens." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Simple, tasty, quick, and all the ingredients are easy to obtain. In 884 calories, I get 100% of the recommended nutrients except Vitamin C, fiber, and calories, which I can easily get by eating fruits and vegetables the rest of the day.
Ingredients: farina, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, chia seeds, and either skim milk or poppy seeds. - Ruchira S. Datta
How I know I'm tired: I read a comment on FF and thought "Huh, I've done that." Then realized that it was a comment I'd written myself, not 10 minutes ago... #Zzzzzzz

I forgot to have lunch. I was having too much fun with the pop riveter. - Slippy: Potato Croquette
How was lunch? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
How many steps in total was the circuit? - Steve and 4 other people
Less than 101,000. - Professor A.I.
BTW lunch was fine the chicken was a bit tough. :) - Steve and 4 other people
Lunch was good. Pizza, chicken, vegetables. Even dessert! - Louis Gray
According to Moves, our route was 4,231 steps in total. - Louis Gray
Friend on Facebook has had enough of me debunking all the crazy fake shit they share. They fake to real ratio is about 5 - 2. With a track record like that, you'd think they would stop before sharing... but, no... all my fault.

Bacteria Help Explain Why Stress, Fear Trigger Heart Attacks -
"Scientists believe they have an explanation for the axiom that stress, emotional shock, or overexertion may trigger heart attacks in vulnerable people. Hormones released during these events appear to cause bacterial biofilms on arterial walls to disperse, allowing plaque deposits to rupture into the bloodstream, according to research published in published today in mBio®, the online open-access journal of the American Society for Microbiology." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet

Here's a better photo of the elephand bead. Sunday's photo had a little 'beauty blur' going on so I thought you might appreciate a cleaner shot. The blur definatly hid his flaws - like that #$%@ bit of blue glass under his eye. The ball came apart when I took him off the rod so he's a loss but still a good start on what could be a great bead. Just...
...for fun I made one without the ball. He's a very happy fellow! - Shannon - GlassMistress
I shared a photo of the circus elephant on the ISGB (International Society of Glass Bead Makers) and he's nearing 100 likes - and some darn nice comments. *fans self* - Shannon - GlassMistress
I love this guy. Just adorable! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Thanks! I really like him too...I hope I can get it worked out so I can make one with it cracking. I could do the 'ball' separate but I really dig it as one piece. - Shannon - GlassMistress

Japan Stories: Hello Kitty Contact Lenses - Japan Expo -
"Hello Kitty contact lenses are big on the Japanese market and also give you what seems like an expansion of the eye circumference. Two models are already available: one is decorated with hearts and available in eight different colors, and the other is the face of Kitty, in the size of your eyes. And for all those who wish to go further into the Hello Kitty experience, you can also have the Hello Kitty box for your contact lenses!" - rönin from Bookmarklet
