Re: Universal’s Shared Monster Universe - http://xdind.com/univers...
"All good points. I'm curious about these, but the monsters will have to speak to contemporary anxieties before I think they'll have a chance of lasting impact. A super hero-style team up wouldn't figure to have much chance of doing that, looking instead like a bald attempt to cash in on the shared universe team-up trend Marvel started and DC has started bandwagoning." - cdogzilla | downgraded

Re: Holly Hobby Lobby: New Face of American Taliban - http://www.patheos.com/blogs...
"[x-posting from G+] This picture, all on its own, says it all. Perfectly. I was dismayed when, after first seeing this posted, I went to check the young lady's twitter account to see if it was real or staged, and saw that she'd been getting all mean-spirited tweets sent back to her calling her, among other things, "fat" and "retarded". It was depressing. I thought, and think, this picture is so spot-on that it should prompt folks who might be tempted to have their picture taken in the first pose to wonder exactly WTF they are doing if they are just a different colored flag, a different book of fairy tales, and have different fashion-sense than the women on the right. The picture does the job. After reading her twitter though, I wanted to send her apologies for all the misogynist scumbags who thought attacking her on the basis of her body shape and by hurling mean-spirited slurs at her was somehow called for. The picture does the job. We may shake our heads and wonder what she's..." - cdogzilla | downgraded

Re: A Brief History of Fandom, Or, How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Being a Fan - http://www.themarysue.com/...
"I never get more "hey, great shirt ..." comments from perfect strangers than when I wear a Doctor Who t-shirt. Occasionally, someone will nod sagely when I wear a Yo La Tengo concert t-shirt, but *every* time I wear a Who shirt, I have at least one person approach and strike up a conversation." - cdogzilla | downgraded

Re: Read: Style -- The Art of Writing Well - http://pro-libertate.net/2014042...
"I may be an outlier here, but I enjoy footnotes when they are truly interesting as an aside from the text. I don't have much patience for endnotes. That's one area though that ebooks have changed -- when you can jump via link to the note, and jump back to where you were reading without flipping pages hunting for the endnote and accidentally ending up on the notes a chapter ahead and wondering what the note had to do with what you were reading, it's a much more user-friendly experience." - cdogzilla | downgraded

Re: Movies That Traumatized You As A Kid - http://wunc.org/post...
"Salem's Lot (1979). I had nightmares for a week. It took me many, many years to give it another look and when I did I couldn't believe I'd been so traumatized, but at the time it was more than my 8-year-old self could handle." - cdogzilla | downgraded

Re: Steven Moffat on Doctor Who regenerations: Go back and count again – there’s something you’ve missed - http://www.radiotimes.com/news...
"We didn't actually see Troughton regenerate into Pertwee, but I don't see how that would matter with regard to counting regenerations. And what about the (throwaway?) line in SJA where the (presumed) 11th said there was no limit? Has the notion that McGann's Doctor simply aged into the Hurt Doctor been ruled out as a possibility? It's in Moffatt's hands, but I don't buy for a minute that Capaldi, or whoever succeeds him in the role, will be the last incarnation of the Doctor regardless what wool he's trying to throw over our eyes :P" - cdogzilla | downgraded

Re: Another Car Shopping ‘Pro Tip’ - http://jeffmayernik.com/2013...
"Stage 4, for me at least, has to be Stage 1, because I'm simply not going to look at a car that doesn't, regardless of how much I might think I'll like it. But your points are well taken. I'm trying to picture myself puffing out my chest and asking about HP and curb weight and it just makes me laugh, because I'd look awful silly." - cdogzilla | downgraded

What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now)
1.05 (670/633) - Micah from Bookmarklet
Can you remind me again where to find those stats? - Brian Johns
Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah
0.75 (926/1226) - still relatively new here - mikepk
I only see my stats for the last week (17/14 = 1.21) Please tell me your 670 number is for more than just a week! - Brian Johns
1.44 (566/391) for brianjohns (after week tally you should see a comma then 'all time' count - I can see it on your page) - Micah
OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay
FFers use FF with their own strategy or simply default tendencies. The ratio is an interesting snapshot of behaviour. Thanks for joining in everyone, hope more keep flowing in. - Micah from twhirl
0.79 - Brian Roy
0.77 - Shey
0.76 - FFing Enigma
1.39. - Rochelle
1.61 - I only 'like' when I want to throw my support behind a topic but don't have anything constructive to add. - Bjorn Stromberg
1.12 - Tinfoil 2.0
5.08 (3181/626) ! - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
0.66 - I tend to 'like' things without needing to comment further, I guess, and I notice I usually like the things upon which I comment. Well, frequently. - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ
.39 (2457/6242) I guess I don't comment much. I do 'like' a lot of things, it would seem. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist

So far: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81 ... (if you average 1 comment per like, you'd be 1.0 ... if you're 0.xx you might herd content more than discuss ... if you're whole numbers above 1 you may not 'like' much or discuss plenty or both) - Micah

Thanks jamar78 and Marg! - Micah
A recent change in FF: now the comment count shows total number of comments (previously multiple comments in one thread only counted as one) http://friendfeed.com/e... so all the numbers above are from the old methodology.... - David HC Soul
My new ratio: 0.76 all time (old methodology .52).... this week 1.39 - David HC Soul
*bump* - Micah
1.26 (2965/2346) - Micah
Thanks, Glen and pea! - Micah
Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah
.38 - Ryan Dadey
Ryan, I have to say, that's one high caliber ratio ;) - Micah
An update it's .44 which is an improvement from .36 - Michael Fidler

Steven, yep, you were a 0.85 in April. - Micah
2.10 now ... - Amani
0.97 now. - Eric Johnson
Amani, so your comments have climbed a bit. - Micah
Thanks, Eric. - Micah
yes, but i am not consciously "not liking" things - Amani from IM
Probably, just chattier then :) - Micah
I'm down from 7.16 to 6.94 :-) - Ken Sheppardson
the live NBA playoff threads have ALOT to do with it. - Amani from IM
Ken, the FCC may be interested to explore how your "I'm down" may be offensively self-deprecating ;) - Micah
.56 eeep, must try harder - Threepwood
4.52. I don't bother to like things I've commented on, since commenting already flags it as interesting. - Andy Bakun

Threepwood, Andy, Glenn - thanks (Andy, that's my mo too; then I'll Like if it warrants a "double vote"). - Micah

Rick, you mean that face with glasses I photoshopped tint into with an apparently disembodied arm which is actually very much attached to my eldest son? It's mostly just me :) - Micah

.6 (6,000/10,000) 3rd update - Now it's time to flip this on its head. My goal is to have (16,000/16,000) next time I post here. Regardless of what happens, I'm just looking forward to the next 10,000 comments, likes, posts, and new relationships I make here. It's all good! - Michael Fidler

.82 as of right now. edit: on January 8th it was 0.39 -- when I saw that, I decided to make more of an effort to comment. When I hit 10k "likes" I decided I wouldn't "like" anything else until I also had 10k comments. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist

Micah, are you doing something with these numbers? If so sounds interesting. - NOT THE CRICKET

Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah
Jonas, James and Kurt - thanks you! - Micah

Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah

Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist

1.09 (11910/10953) - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
1.97%. thanks again micah, this has been a great metric to measure my first year here on ff. As the year went (this being the first record of me being here that i've found): , 6.43%:1.25%:1.97% - chaz2b

Re: Pros and Cons To Starting A Blog: Why Every Business Needs One - http://www.dereckarreguin.com/pros-an...
"I've been blogging for 13 years, so I'm in general agreement that the pros outweigh the cons. Now, I'm not a small business, I'm just a guy with a lot opinions and wide variety of interests that I like to discuss. If I were out selling a product or service, I'm not sure a blog is the way to promote something like that. Depends what it is, and how you go about it, I suppose. For a newbie to social media, a presence on G+, Facebook, or twitter might be easier to manage, but also be subject to the whims of those service providers, as you point out. I've noticed that the small businesses in my town seem to get the most interaction on their facebook pages, and I don't think any of them have blogs, per se." - cdogzilla | downgraded

Psst. I'm giving away an amazon gift card in a drawing you can enter at the bottom of the post. Rafflecopter will pick the winner, but I hope by blurting it here I can tip the scales in favor of a friendfeeder. I'm not exactly wealthy, so it's a gift card that will only get you the baseline, entry-level, wi-fi-only kindle with "special" offers, but it doesn't have to be used towards that kindle, it's a straight up gift card good for anything your little heart desires (that amazon sells).

Just ranting .. My wife is a member of the PTA, volunteers at our school all the time, is the coordinator of the Box Tops donation program (which is, not to get all scientific, is a metric shit ton of work), and has done countless little things to help the teachers and staff, not the least of which has been volunteering my time for various ...
... events. She does a lot of the school. But, she decided she wasn't crazy about how the Boosterthon thing worked last year, so this year we decided we would donate and raise money on our own to give directly to the school, cutting out the middle man as it were, because of how much of the money donated gets diverted to things other than our school. We talked to the teachers and principal about why we weren't going to have our kids participate in the fundraising, and let them them know our donation plans. While we weren't participating, we still helped with some stuff like contributing supplies and doing some of the decorations for the effort. Unfortunately ... - cdogzilla | downgraded
My wife decided to post something on facebook about how challenging it's been to explain to the kids why we're not calling and asking family and friends to pledge, but doing our own thing instead. She posted this privately (non-publicly, I guess I should say, to just a circle of friends) and someone who was in that circle of friends decided they needed to go tell the PTA board that my wife was "bad-mouthing" the boosterthon behind their backs ... - cdogzilla | downgraded
Since only a few people could see the post, and none of them were on the PTA, whoever the person initiated the gossip chain to asked for a screenshot of what was said, which that person (henceforth, "the rat") provided. The PTA took the screenshot and went to the Principal and said, "Look, this lady is saying Boosterthon is a shady operation, sabotaging our efforts." Now, our Principal knows our position already, so none of this was news to her, but now my wife's "sabotage" is ... - cdogzilla | downgraded
sort of a messy discussion around the school circles. No real point to venting this, it's just my wife was so upset that the PTA thought this was something that needed to be brought to the Principal's attention, and even more upset that someone would take her post and bring it to the PTA as a smoking gun in the case of the Boosterthon Sabotage Ring of Doom, and do so without even discussing it with her first. - cdogzilla | downgraded
On the one had, I feel like you take your life in your hands posting anything on facebook, or anywhere online. You just can't rely on people taking your wishes for how you'd like your thoughts, pictures, and whatever shared -- or not shared -- seriously. Anyone can printscreen and make anything public. But on the other, you'd like to think someone along the line would say, "WTF is wrong with you people, you wouldn't take someone's mail and start showing it around, that'd be psychotic. Same thing here." - cdogzilla | downgraded
I think the end result of this will be my wife will distance herself from the PTA and we'll stick to just working with our kids' teachers. Which means some other poor sap is going to be stuck counting and sorting giant trash bags full of those little Box Tops in the future. I will not miss that. - cdogzilla | downgraded
Wow, that's terrible. People feel entitled to pass judgement, and do so with impunity. I'm sorry you're having to deal with that :( - Jennifer Dittrich
One thing to note: The complete asskickery of your wife remains intact. - Johnny from iPhone
It's kind of funny that the person who felt it was so important to share my wife's post outside its intended audience thinks her/his privacy is worth protecting. Clearly they value at least anonymity, if not privacy. - cdogzilla | downgraded
Thanks for hearing me out and the kind words. I'm sure it'll all blow over soon enough. And, yes, her asskickery is unquestionably intact. :) - cdogzilla | downgraded
