Taylor Swift doesn't understand supply and demand
"Taylor makes a nice little argument in favor of paying for music. "Music is art," she says, "and art is important and rare. Important, rare things are valuable. Valuable things should be paid for. It's my opinion that music should not be free, and my prediction is that individual artists and their labels will someday decide what an album's price point is." This is an impressively-constructed syllogism. It is also deeply, deeply wrong." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Massive wildfire burns 100 homes in Washington; town evacuated - http://www.cbsnews.com/news...
"A large, wind-whipped wildfire in rural north-central Washington destroyed an estimated 100 homes, forced the evacuation of a small town and cut power to most of the scenic Methow Valley. A spokesman for the Carlton Complex Fire, Jacob McCann, said Friday that the fire "ran quite a bit" on Thursday and officials were also able to get a better handle on its size. It blackened 260 square miles by Friday morning, up dramatically from the last estimate of 28 square miles. "This is a very dynamic situation," said another fire spokesman, Dan Omdal. "Fire activity is really high. Things are changing very quickly." Officials say no injuries have been reported. Firefighter Don Scahfer reported several community buildings were destroyed in the fire including the local post office, school and a church, CBS affiliate KREM reports. Authorities say the wildfire has already burned about 100 homes and prompted the evacuation of the small town of Pateros, home to about 650 people in Okanogan County. A hospital in nearby Brewster was also evacuated as a precaution." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Ina Garten, explained: How a nuclear budget analyst became the Barefoot Contessa
Seems like Russia funneling arms to separatists in Ukraine has backfired, so to speak. Nothing like shooting down an airliner for the world to sit up and think, maybe ignoring that Putin isn't such a good idea.
the US is too busy watching porn and eating Cheetos to notice much anymore. - Big Joe Silence
Pres Obama put the screws on new sanctions for Russia yesterday over funding and funneling weapons to Russian nationalists. No one else seemed to notice. - Eric
yup. no one cares unless it comes with a pizza or a game for their phone. - Big Joe Silence

Yes, the 11 year olds are invading. - Eric
And of course Twitter users break the news. Plane parts showing up in people's backyards. Yikes. - Eric
Even still, I'm not sure what we can do besides watchful waiting and economic maneuvers. But maybe the EU can finally at least form a unified front against Putin. - Victor Ganata
Agreed. This is the the court of the Europeans. They let Crimea go without much of a fight. It is Europe who need to take stiffer action to lock down Russian interests, especially economic. - Eric
sometimes it feels like "YOU DAMNED FILTHY AMERICANS ARE ALWAYS INTERFERING! Oh, wait...come beat up Russia for us, please? No? What do you mean "No"? DAMN YOU, FILTHY AMERICANS! YOU'RE USELESS." but only sometimes. - Big Joe Silence
No, after two wars and more than a million deaths, I'm pretty sure no one wants us to invade anywhere else these days. I think the general mindset for most conflicts now is "if we ignore it, maybe they'll just kill each other and burn the whole thing down for us." - Victor Ganata

Allison Robicelli Slams Food Media for Hoping Cupcakes Die
"“I have no issue with cupcakes,” she writes in First We Feast. “I’ve outlined countless times in the media on why they’re great, why people love them, and why people continue to buy them over all the other stuff we make. “What I have an issue with is bad journalism. And there’s a ton of it that goes around in the anti-cupcake circuit. Factual errors, lack of research…seriously, one more person mentions Sex and the City, they’re getting punched in the dick. ”" - Eric from Bookmarklet

Massive school of anchovies swimming off California coast baffles boffins
"The giant shoal of Northern Anchovies seen darkening the ocean waters off of La Jolla north of San Diego was 45 feet wide and stretched for more than 320 feet, they say. "It was remarkable. From a distance it looked like an oil slick and you think 'What happened?' and then you get up close and it's amazing," said Robert Monroe of the Scripps Institution of Oceanography. "It's like watching the motion of a lava lamp." Anchovies normally live far out at sea, and why the shoal would come so near the coast is unknown, experts said." - Eric from Bookmarklet

The Stupidest Detail Is the Whole Story
"Hey, did you catch this story about a woman who parked her car on the highway, leading to the deaths of two motorcyclists? She's now staring at the chance of life in prison, and you probably feel like that's a fair punishment. Shitty drivers rank right above Nazi doctor and below Satan on our Sympathy Scale. If this story doesn't sound familiar, it's because almost all the coverage looked like this:" - Eric from Bookmarklet

Celebrity Chef Fan Tattoos
"These are not chef tattoos. Instead, these are the tattoos of groupies who, enamored with celebrity chefs, tattooed chefs’ faces onto their own skin permanently. We were appalled/inspired this morning when we saw Gordon Ramsay’s apprehension over a fan’s tattoo, and unfortunately, @Zoria_Nails isn’t the only one in this trend. Click if you dare. We double dare you." - Eric from Bookmarklet

Domino's, Little Caesars Pizza Founders' Contrasting Legacies
"Mike Ilitch and Tom Monaghan are Detroit’s unlikely pizza barons, and their stories are drawing to a close. Detroit is never confused with Chicago or New York as a pizza town, but Domino’s, the nation’s No. 2 pizza chain behind Pizza Hut (YUM), and No. 3 Little Caesars together claimed 20 percent of the $34 billion in sales at U.S. pizza restaurants in 2013, says research firm Technomic." - Eric from Bookmarklet
Whoa, Little Ceasars is number three? I swear I went through about 20 years of my life never even seeing Little Caesars. As a teenager, hardly more than two days passed where I wasn't stuffing Krazy Bread in my face. - Akiva
Was there a more perfect food for a teenager? - Eric
$5 Hot n' Ready. 'nuff said. - Jenny H. from Android
Yeah, Little Caesars has made a massive comeback in the past 5 years or so. From about 1990-2010, the only Little Caesars within 100 miles of here was the crappy little stand inside of our K-Mart. Now, I can hardly drive 10 or 15 miles without seeing one. It's also worth noting that Hungry Howie's (which is apparently the 11th largest pizza chain in the US) is based in the Detroit area. Though, the HH that was near here when I first moved into this area has now been gone for about 10 years. :( - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

"Cody Jones says he contacted Facebook ... demanding they take down the "Kill Kendall Jones" page. Cody says FB told him to pound sand, because it didn't violate company standards.

How critical are you of yourself?
I tend to be very critical. I turned in an article that I worked on for a couple weeks and finished at 3:30 last night. I thought, this is a steaming pile of horse manure, but I'm past deadline so send it. The editor will be so mad he won't talk to me again. Well, he loved it. Go figure. - Eric
I would comment more but I edited myself three times and figure its best not to post anything but this. - Me
It depends. I know that I could always do better, but then that'll depend on what I'm doing and who is the recipient. - Anika
Sometimes we are our worst critics. (But not always.) - Stephan #TeamMarina from iPhone
Too critical, even mean. - grizabella from Android
I'm not critical of myself, I leave that up to other people. - Elena
