Lord have mercy, I've become a pretty regular lurker, sometimes user on Reddit. I blame Rod.
Hah. I'm still mostly a lurker. It's pretty damn entertaining. - Rodfather
I have a whole bunch of multireddits set up now. - Rodfather
Here's one I copied and then added on to. I made it public for now. http://www.reddit.com/user... - Rodfather
Another for Nintendo related http://www.reddit.com/user... - Rodfather
I go there for a DC subreddit, one on Wii, another for 3DS, a couple on audio and vinyl, and a couple more on bands and music that I like and follow. - Derrick
I remember when I first tried to use it, everyone was so trollish. A lot of really techy folks talking about stuff way over my head and it was really hard to navigate to find stuff I was interested in. Some of the subreddits are still very high bro ratio, but things are pretty chill where I hang out. - Derrick
Any recs for sub-reddits? - YvonneM
/r/babyelephantgifs is my happy place - Glen Campbell
I follow really specific sub-reddits, so unless you like audio, records, stereo equipment or hi-fi's, probably not very compelling. I'm sure others will have more interesting ones. - Derrick
How's the DC one? My siblings and my cousins are sometimes on there, but I don't think I've looked at it beyond threads-in-the-"news" in years. - Katie
It's...DC. Little bit of everything in the area, different chatter about neighborhoods, the metro, the nats, etc. - Derrick
I recently found this. Amusing. http://www.reddit.com/r... - Rodfather from Android

"A Houston woman was convicted of murder Tuesday for fatally stabbing her boyfriend with the 5 1/2 -inch stiletto heel of her shoe, hitting him at least 25 times in the face.

do I want to know what maltloaf is? - RepoRat
It's sticky fruity goodness. There's nothing really close in the US. Maybe brown bread that comes in a can, but with the texture of a marshmallow? It's so weird but I'm sort of addicted to it. - Sarah G.
Do they have it at jungle Jim's? - sglassme

You do realize you get kicked out of the family if you develop a love of marmite. - sglassme
..I actually sort of like Marmite? But only with fancy ass cheese. (aka cheddar.) Vegemite remains awful, though. - Sarah G.
Mmmm....http://www.starbucks.co.uk/menu... gonna have to try one of these! - Sarah G.
Cheddar is not fancy ass. (but knowing you there is an additive that makes it fancy ass) - sglassme
They make some with marmite in it. - Sarah G.
If you take plain cheddar and add marmite, not fancy ass. If you buy the cheddar pre-marmited, then fancy ass. - sglassme

Student claims college instructor spent months teaching class the 'wrong' course | khou.com Houston - http://www.khou.com/news...
Student claims college instructor spent months teaching class the 'wrong' course | khou.com Houston
"For college students, a straight-A average is a crucial building block on the road to success, but imagine having that average jeopardized because of a teacher’s mistake. That’s what Lauren Firmin claims happened in her Fall 2013 semester at Lonestar College- University Park in northwest Harris County. The class she had enrolled in and thought she was taking was an ‘Intro to Chemistry’ course, a study of the basics of the science. Yet this student with a 4.0 grade average found herself unexpectedly struggling with the material. “I was getting 40’s on every test,” said Firmin. “I studied as hard as I could, did everything in my power to try.” Then, shortly before the class’ final exam, Firmin claims teacher Thao Shirley Nguyen admitted something. “She told her mistake in class to all of the students,” Firmin told the KHOU 11 News I-Team. And the mistake: “She was teaching general chemistry, another course, all semester.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Uh-oh. - Anne Bouey
And in all that time not one student asked for clarification, asked a tutor, went to the dept head, checked the syllabus, researched the textbook..... - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
Sounds about right for people taught to do as their told without any critical thinking skills. - Anika
And that's what happens when we teach to the standardized tests, folks. Rote memory is all we care about. Can't be having generations of youths with critical thinking or analytical skills, now can we? - Hookuh Tinypants
I mean, honestly, I sympathize and all. The teacher made a huge mistake. But there were how many kids in that class? And not one single student took it upon themselves to question the situation? I mean, there's a huge difference between Intro to Chem and General Chem. HUGE. The fact that the class assumed that they already knew things should have been the big tip-off. Also, didn't... more... - Hookuh Tinypants
(Also? The instant that student realized she couldn't get above a 40 on the tests, why didn't she either drop with a W or switch to credit-no credit grading? I notice that the school does indeed offer that option. What, did someone else have to think of that for her too?) - Hookuh Tinypants
My second semester of Chem was tough, but after every test we went over it briefly. One test was particularly hard and no one did well, so the teacher went question-by-question to see where the problems were. Having 4 questions no one could answer was pretty obvious. I'm blown away that the teacher didn't notice how poorly everyone was doing and that none of the students got together to try and figure out their issues. - Heather, 30k Camper
That entire class, professor included, is a study in Darwinism for sure. - Hookuh Tinypants
We had a lecturer in my 1st year at uni that was truly dreadful, so much so that we all banded together and lodged a complaint, a meeting with the disgruntled students was arranged, which I also attended and we made our concerns clear. He was eventually replaced, but what's tragic about our story is that the end result was exactly what he wanted, he didn't want to teach and so sabotaged... more... - Halil
My son is a math major at UTSA, and he has a similar problem this semester. He's taking two different statistics classes (upon the recommendation of his advisor) that are teaching identical content. Basically, the same stuff in both courses, with different textbooks, for two course credits. - Glen Campbell
Also, I rolled my eyes a little at this: "For college students, a straight-A average is a crucial building block on the road to success". It really depends on your field. Yes, grades are important, but for some grad programs, work experience is a bigger factor than whether you got A's in all your classes. - Jessie
M9M, Hookuh: That was my immediate reaction before getting to your comments. "Really? You're getting straight A's in everything, suddenly you're flunking exams...and you don't bother to find out why?" - Walt Crawford
Also, re that straight-A claim: Damn, I'm glad I've been away from college for 45+ years. Straight A's at Berkeley in the 60s usually meant you were a superbeing or a jock. - Walt Crawford
what I thought when I saw this was how the hell did the professor not question the fact that so many students were failing the class? also i get that she's new, but...how did no one explain to her the difference between intro and gen chem? and what everyone else has already said about the students...i mean geeze, i would have been asking questions on why i was flunking and not just... more... - Sir Shuping is just sir

Revealed: Apple and Google's wage-fixing cartel involved dozens more companies, over one million employees | PandoDaily
"This week, as the final summary judgement for the resulting class action suit looms, and several of the companies mentioned (Intuit, Pixar and Lucasfilm) scramble to settle out of court, Pando has obtained court documents (embedded below) which show shocking evidence of a much larger conspiracy, reaching far beyond Silicon Valley." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"Confidential internal Google and Apple memos, buried within piles of court dockets and reviewed by PandoDaily, clearly show that what began as a secret cartel agreement between Apple's Steve Jobs and Google's Eric Schmidt to illegally fix the labor market for hi-tech workers, expanded within a few years to include companies ranging from Dell, IBM, eBay and Microsoft, to Comcast, Clear... more... - Andrew C (✔)
Holy shit. What fucking assholes. Perfect industry for it, too, since so many tech workers are libertarians and anti-union. - Spidra Webster
Two thoughts (as one who worked & lived in Silicon Valley for 20-odd years, albeit working for a library nonprofit): 1. Astonishing but not really surprising. 2. You mean those six-digit salaries are the result of wage suppression? Wow: Wish I coulda got some of that... (But #2 is off topic, of course.) Certainly true that it's harder to feel sorry for Google/Apple employees. - Walt Crawford
Not everyone who works in tech or for those particular companies is making six-digit salaries. - Spidra Webster
The talk of six digit salaries may be true in some places, but not most. - Eric - Watch Me Now
Companies conspiring to keep employees from competing in an open market is bad no matter what the salary range. - Glen Campbell
Agreed...and the cartel issue is certainly legitimate. #2 was mostly a little fun...although the percentage of six-digit salaries in Mountain View and Cupertino is certainly a lot higher than in most small cities. - Walt Crawford
It would also be accurate to say that eight and nine-figure executive compensation in SV was made possible in part by wage suppression. I mean, the original lawsuit covered five years (?), six companies, 100K employees -- and $9B dollars in estimated lost wages. - Andrew C (✔)
Yes, I'm pretty sure that's true--but then, my feelings about hired-hand compensation in excess of 20x the wages of the janitors are pretty firm. (I know a 100% marginal tax rate wouldn't be possible, but it sure does sound good. Note "hired-hand"--managers, not founders.) - Walt Crawford

Why Does Coffee Wake You Up? - SlumberWise - http://slumberwise.com/science...
Why Does Coffee Wake You Up? - SlumberWise
Why Does Coffee Wake You Up? - SlumberWise
From the article: "Caffeine is able to have such a profound effect because it is both water-soluble and fat-soluble. This allows it to cross easily from the blood stream straight into your brain. Once there, caffeine can get to work. The molecular structure of caffeine is similar to that of adenosine – they essentially have the same shape. Because of this, once the caffeine is in your brain, it can bond with adenosine receptors. Since the caffeine molecules are taking up this space, there is no room for adenosine to bond, and the adenosine in your system is therefore not able to make you sleepy." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
The ubiquity of the cyclic AMP system and its critical importance in mediating almost every aspect of your cellular metabolism is the reason why you quickly develop tolerance, though. - Victor Ganata
Yeah, it may be time for me to quit caffeine again so that it can go back to having a useful effect when I need a jolt. I'm now at a point where I'm having 2-3 cups a day just to reach normal, which seems counter-productive. - Stephen Mack

OK, I have to admit that when I saw the mainstream media's headlines of the BICEP-2 results, I was skeptical about their breathlessness. So inflation theory. Very gravity wave. Wow. It seemed like the confirmation of a very subtle theoretical point that doesn't change much. But with the realization that Andrei Linde is right…
…how much of a BFD this finding is is finally hitting me. - Victor Ganata
It's the missing piece of the puzzle that was hiding in the couch. Finding one piece isn't exciting till you realise it completes the whole puzzle - Johnny from iPhone
Yeah, it's just a bit staggering. The video of Linde finding out... well, I've got something in my eye. https://www.youtube.com/watch... - Jennifer Dittrich
Eternal/chaotic inflation actually takes care of the tuning problem. The weak anthropic principle is actually fine in this instance. The reason why we get certain values for the 17 parameters of the standard model of quantum mechanics is because they're the values that allow life and human intelligence. But we're not the only universe. There are infinite universes with infinite variations in those 17 parameters. Some of them are lifeless and barren. Others have wildly different configurations than our own. - Victor Ganata
I secretly hope that the reason for the harsh edit between when he asks for it to be repeated a 3rd time and them popping the wine cork is because Linde started yelling "FUCK YEAH IT IS, BITCHES" and flopped his junk out on the table like a badass ;) - Johnny from iPhone
That video...wow. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I mean, there's still a lot of confirmation that needs to be done. The signal was actually much stronger than they expected, so there might be other things going on as well. There's no way to look past the light horizon and see the inflaton field or other bubble universes. But it certainly fires up the imagination. - Victor Ganata
Just the confirmation of inflation itself is really remarkable, as is the fact that we have info from 10^-35 seconds after the Big Bang (if the Big Bang really happened :D) - Victor Ganata
The other extraordinary thing is how good their data is. It's very impressive. - Glen Campbell

I've thinking and talking about getting a ukelele for many years. I almost did so several years ago when Josh Haley was still actively posting here and would share pics of various models. And then, of course, Glen C.would post pics and comments about his own playing. I think it might be time. I need to challenge my brain,and I think a string...
Learning to play a new musical instrument is a good "stretching" exercise for a stagnating brain, and I've never tried a stringed instrument before. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Of course, I can't really justify spending that money right now so it would necessarily be a cheaper one. Still, a chubster like myself playing a ukulele would certainly be a draw to gorgeous nubile women, right? - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Thanks Josh! I was going see if you were still on FB so I could get your thoughts. I looked for the Haley's Ukulele website, but since I s pelled it "ukelele" I kept getting links to someone on FB who goes by "Hayley Ukelele" so I gave up. I was also thinking I might check out the baritone ukes, but I guess that's a different kettle of fish as far as tuning. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
