I had succumbed to the conventional wisdom that blogging had been killed by social media. After realizing just how much I was spending on hosting for no discernible good reason, I started looking at ways to preserve what I've written before canceling contracts. Lo and behold, people are still developing blogging engines.
It's amazing, but true. You should start blogging again! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
That moment when you've completely forgotten who to search-and-replace in your text editor of choice.
At least I haven't forgotten how to exit. - Victor Ganata

Rollin' rollin' rollin' - Spidra Webster
Password required. :/ - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
LOL, so if you follow a mouldering link on an ancient blog post to a former Geocities URL, you get rickrolled
Another reason to drink coffee: It's good for your heart, study says - L.A. Times
"Researchers found that people who drink between three and five cups of coffee a day are likely to have less coronary artery calcium (CAC) than those who drink no coffee at all." - Victor Ganata from iPhone
"…certified vegan condoms…." Well then.
Is this blue and black or white and gold?

Two memes in one day? It's like the Internet is rewarding us for the FCC choosing net neutrality.
For some inexplicable reason, my brain is playing the Galaga theme song over and over again.
After Louis Gray posted Bret Taylor's Quora post about the current state of Friendfeed I keep getting "Service Unavailable" errors and in the back of my mind I keep thinking the end is near.
Also, that thread sure took a weird turn. - John (bird whisperer)
don't they all? - MoTO Boychick Devil
The thread took a weird turn, but it was a good source for people to block. - Greg GuitarBuster
^ Indeed :) - Stephan from iPhone
A communications disruption could mean only one thing: invasion. - Fabrizio Casu
What Greg sez (and I *rarely* block anybody) - Walt Crawford
bekleyin orospu cocuklari fikirtepeden adamlari yigacam buraya - Mahmutby Hulusi
Kesin lan sesinizi. - Arkancelo
It's always at least slightly disconcerting whenever an exploit reveals that the visual system of the human brain is nothing but a mashup of clever and not-so-clever hacks and kludges.
We were talking about that last night and came to pretty much the same conclusion :) - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Some good ones here: Your brain wants as much as possible to come up with a robust actionable perception of the world and of the information and data that is coming in. - Todd Hoff
Llamas and net neutrality.
Poor John Boehner. Caught between Internet users who don't want cable and telephone companies throttling them and antigovernment zealots who are disgusted he was completely powerless to stop the FCC.
Searching for the Welsh-Hindi link - BBC - 2005 Mar 14
"A BBC journalist is urging helpful linguists to come forward to help solve a mystery - why the Hindi accent has so much in common with Welsh." - Victor Ganata
I would have been totally unaware of what the Welsh accent sounded like if not for watching an episode of Danger Mouse featuring a Welsh dragon. - Victor Ganata
You are narrow, scalding, and irrational - IFL Science
Ultimately, at least in my patient population, any dietary recommendations that don't take into account access, availability, affordability, and time expenditure are useless.
Real Paleo Diet: early hominids ate just about everything - The Conversation
Again, just silliness, rabbits are trapped, not run down. "The anthropologist Bruce Latimer has pointed out that the fastest human being on the planet can’t catch up to your average rabbit" While the article may contribute to a veg vs meat eater discussion, it doesn't have much to say on the paleo front. We know what they didn't eat. They didn't eat sugar, wheat, or processed foods. - Todd Hoff
But to that end, then why even call it a Paleo diet? Why not call it the "Don't eat shit that's become prevalent in the last century" diet since that's where the bulk of processed and sugary foods has come in. It seems weird to ascribe a specific origin to a diet that actually has little to do with the origin. In reality, if you're going to develop a Paleo diet, you're going to need to... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
For the same reason Mcdonalds doesn't call their Big Mac "faux manufactured in a lab 'food' that will last until the heat death of the universe." Marketing. And like for everything else there are different models of what paleo means and given a model there are different degrees of adherence. You'll find a majority who follow notionally and a much smaller minority who take it quite seriously. - Todd Hoff
My problem is that attributing it to pre-agricultural eating habits while ignoring what pre-agricultural eating habits actually were is basically selling pseudoscience. - Victor Ganata
That's my exact problem with it as well. - Hookuh Tinypants
You mean pseudoscience like the food pyramid? - Todd Hoff
Yes, exactly (although some orgs do update and modify their charts based on current empirical evidence rather than agribusiness interests) - Victor Ganata
I can't even remember the last time anyone referenced the food pyramid. That still happens? Huh. - Hookuh Tinypants
They're usually presented in table form these days. - Victor Ganata
So an even sturdier foundation. - Todd Hoff
In as far as some of them are actually based on evidence. - Victor Ganata
Quite the endorsement. - Todd Hoff
Much like any other set of recommendations, some organizations are actually interested in providing useful guidelines based on the best available data and some organizations are simply interested in selling you something that may not actually be in your best interest. *shrug* #ymmv - Victor Ganata
The food pyramid is big ag promotion tool. So I guess we know where it fits. - Todd Hoff
There isn't just one org that provides nutritional guidelines, and not all of them are beholden to big ag interests. And they're not necessarily trying to sell books or programs for profit. - Victor Ganata
But all the paleo advocates are greedy promoters. Got it. - Todd Hoff
Hey, I get it, we live in a capitalist society, after all. Gotta make that paper. - Victor Ganata from iPhone

A Guide to the Meaning and Usefulness of Punctuation Marks - McSweeney's
"Ellipsis. Defective, oval punctuation mark, sometimes mistakenly tripled by idiots. Usually used to mark out oral sex scenes involving psychiatrists. Also, occasionally, in epic space operas. Do not get this as a tattoo.

My Depressing Day With A Famous Climate Skeptic - NPR
"I came away from my meeting with this famous climate skeptic feeling pretty depressed. What I had seen was a scientist whose work, in my opinion, was simply not very good. That, on its own, is no big deal. There are lots of scientists whose work is not very good — and some people may even think my science should be included in that list." - Victor Ganata
"But Soon's little string of papers were being heralded in the highest courts of public opinion as a significant blow to everyone else's understanding of Earth's climate. From TV studios to the halls of Congress, we were being told his was world-shaking research of the highest caliber, and that we had to take notice." - Victor Ganata
"From what I saw and learned that day, the truth wasn't anywhere close. That was what made it all so depressing. For an issue so important to all of us, the standards should be a lot higher." - Victor Ganata
