Denver Broncos Safety Headbutts Cab Driver, Gets Cut By Team - http://www.msn.com/en-us...
Denver Broncos Safety Headbutts Cab Driver, Gets Cut By Team
"Denver Broncos practice squad safety John Boyett was cut today after a Wednesday morning incident involving a scuffle with a cab driver. According to Denver police, Boyett, who was intoxicated at the time, punched and head-butted a cab driver before stealing a shovel from a nearby construction site and trying to bury himself in mulch. Killer hiding spot, dude. Based on the story from the Denver Post, Boyett comes off as a tad unhinged. After being arrested by the cops, Boyett "told arresting officers to 'contact his boss 'John Elway'' before repeatedly slamming his head into a patrol car window while yelling and spitting". Wow." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

There's a bit of meat in the middle of all that fat! - Andrew C (✔)
Just pan-seared a piece tonight w/some smoked salt. Sooooo good. Two minutes on one side and one on the other was enough to give it a nice, crunchy crust while keeping the middle melty. Damn. I don't think I could handle a normal sized steak of this though. - rönin from FFHound!

My impressions of Ello so far
ello-ss.png
Show all
1. It's a stretch to call it "beta" -- seems more alpha level in terms of stability or feature set. - Stephen Mack
2. It's completely illegible to me on my mobile device. Like, I literally cannot read the light gray text on either the white background or the black background at the font size being used. - Stephen Mack
3. Zero privacy controls, and that's by design. That's causing some consternation: http://notyourexrotic.tumblr.com/post... - Stephen Mack
4. When the site is working, and when viewed on a desktop/laptop, the design feels responsive, elegant, and is very generous in terms of displaying artwork. As an example, try looking at this guy's feed: https://ello.co/justincline (I think that should work for anyone, even if you're not signed up). - Stephen Mack
They should probably warn people that it wasn't designed for IE. I'll have to wait until I get home to see if all the issues I'm having are browser-specific or the site overall. For now it's just clunky as hell - very alpha more than beta. - Hookuh Tinypants
Hookuh, ah, I hadn't tried IE. Sorry to hear. I've been using Chrome mostly. - Stephen Mack
Yeah, the privacy stuff (and inability to block) is too sketchy for me. I could wish Tumblr were better in this regard, but even some rudimentary controls are better than none. - Jennifer Dittrich
A friend on FB called Ello "Tumblr for adults". - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew, that's apt. A random person commenting on a friend's FB post about Ello called it, "It's similar to twitter but not a clusterfezzik of communication going every which way. Also its design is very minimalistic and it feels like being in a really expensive and trendy Soma restaurant where it's dark and the menu is in 10pt Courier font and the portoins are really small." - Stephen Mack
Looks good but clunky to navigate. And this posting/commenting thing is confusing to me. ETA: Ahh, it's just automagically prepping me to post on someone's feed. I get it now. - Corinne L
Well, it's no Facebook... *runs* - MoTO: Team Marina
The search is a bit slow, but I imagine their systems are a little busy. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Yeah, the whole thing is a bit slow. - Stephen Mack
So it's just like FriendFeed except for no privacy, no private groups/rooms, no DMs, no auto-import of feeds/RSS, no IM/Alerts (not that it works here anymore), no friend-of-friend discovery, no bumping of posts up to the top, no bookmarklet, no support for #hashtags, no real-time or pause, no custom lists of friends (everyone's either "Friend" or "Noise", no My Discussions link, no... more... - Stephen Mack

Beyonce and Jay-Z get the Louvre to themselves, plus more proof that stars are nothing like us
"the Louvre opened on its off day to accommodate Beyonce and Jay-Z, plus their daughter, Blue Ivy, when the A-listers requested a private tour of the Parisian museum. The power couple reportedly paid for 20 to 25 museum employees to staff the joint during their visit. No maneuvering through crowds of tourists for Bey-Z!" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

"In extreme cases, kids with normal lunches are apparently getting bullied by kids who have the "special" lunches. "Look at your boring lunch! Loser!" Suddenly, the bento lunch mama made no longer seems so delicious. Because of this consequence of mamas trying too hard to impress with their lunch-making efforts, some kindergartens and elementary schools have banned charabens so kids don't have to be ostracized, or even bullied, just for having regular bento lunches." - Anika from Bookmarklet

Funny how the people who keep saying voting is a waste of time only talk about how all the candidates and parties are the same. They never mention the fact that you're also voting on state, county, and city measures that will totally affect your life in very concrete ways.
That's because they're simple-minded. It's too hard for them to think that much. - Anika
Plus of course the parties and candidates are NOT the same but hey simple minded - WarLord
I assume they've never voted and have no idea that there are things like ballot questions. - Heather
People who "choose" not to vote come up with the most remarkable reasons. And it's SOOOOOO difficult to register and vote (esp. in states with permanent absentee ballots, like California). Thus us aged and, unfortunately, them extremists take over the gummint because we'll take the time to be part of it. - Walt Crawford

I don’t want to minimize the harm that Nixon did to the republic, but much of what Nixon did was also done by previous administrations, going back to at least Woodrow Wilson.

No One's Buying iPads Because iPads Are Forever
"Today, Apple trotted out its quarterly earnings, as public companies will do. Massive revenue! iPhone sales up! Mac sales up! iPad sales… well. Okay, so not everything was a hit. But don't confuse Apple's declining tablet sales with the vanishing of the iPad. Tablets aren't dying; they just live forever. It's not that Apple's not selling any iPads at all; it still moved 12.3 million tablets over the summer. But that's down 13 percent from a year ago, an opposite trajectory to the growth that the iPhone and Mac lines experienced in the same time. It's caused a lot of wailing and gnashing of teeth among Apple observers™—what a job description!—but it doesn't mean that tablets in general or the iPad in specific are over. Here's the iPad's real growth problem: If you bought one in the last two and a half years, you have no reason buy another one. None whatsoever. Does your iPad have a Retina display? Good. You can replace it when you accidentally drop it in the toilet, and no sooner.... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
I have to say I don't feel I've outgrown my iPad 2 yet. If I had a good income, I'd get a new iPad just to have something lighter with a better camera and display, but I don't feel like I've outgrown my current one. Whereas I feel the "headroom" on my old Mac laptops all the time due to software bloat for basic web browsing stuff. - Spidra Webster
I kinda feel the storage restriction because games, esp, are really big space hogs. Also, I'm envious of the more powerful CPUs and GPUs, but high production value games aren't important enough on iPad to drive me (or most people, I'd think) to upgrade. - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, I've only got one game (and it's an educational one). I also don't use my iPad for massive photo storage. - Spidra Webster

Author Stalks Anonymous Blogger Who Gave Her a 1-Star Review
"On Friday, The Guardian posted a piece by author Kathleen Hale, a well-connected young author who once became so obsessed with the writer of a one-star review of her novel on Goodreads that she stalked her, only to find that the critic was using a fake name and identity. Can you pick a side yet? I'm on Team Nobody. The story—at least how Hale tells it—goes a little something like this. Hale's publisher, HarperTeen, sent advance copies of her novel to book bloggers to get a sense of what they thought of it. The bloggers were then expected to post their assessments to sites like GoodReads, hopefully generating buzz prior to its release. Hale was warned to avoid GoodReads like teen YouTube stars are warned to avoid reading their comment sections. But, also like a teen YouTube star, Hale was unable to resist. And once she began picking at it, she couldn't stop herself. It didn't take long before things Got Weird." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
