Stuck in my head for days - Meg VMeg
What. the. fuck? I mean, what the fucking fuck? - Zamms
Jen: "That was problematic." - Zamms
She means awesome. You will crave this. I can't stop. - Meg VMeg
Also, welcome to 2003! How I miss it, in some ways. - Meg VMeg
The lighting could pass for 1977. Why does TV still look so bad in 2003?! - Mark Trapp
I blame Craig Kilborn. For many things. - Meg VMeg
Listening to the original now. - Zamms
Sounds so restrained, no? In comparison? To this effervescence? (Seriously why does the original sound like that? It's like Collective Soul or something) - Meg VMeg
That is now my new profile description. - Zamms
AND ALL THE WORLD IS FOOTBALL SHAPED (your description is very good for Biden) - Meg VMeg
Is this song about BDSM? And anxiety? I haven't checked yet. - Meg VMeg
Um...where does one check for that. - Meg VMeg
It's more or less a stream of consciousness, written specifically to be a chart topper. Here's an interview with Andy Partridge, where he discusses what led him to create the song: http://www.myspace.com/xtcfans... - Mark Trapp
You rule. - Meg VMeg
So...yes. - Meg VMeg
WHAT IS WRONG WITH COLLECTIVE SOUL? - Joe
Nothing, they just sound like they placed all the speakers facedown on the floor before recording/playing. - Meg VMeg
I could see that. I am not a big CS fan. I saw them for free once. about 17 years ago after their first album. - Joe
This needed to be bumped. - Zamms
oh yes - Meg VMeg
Mandy sure is cute, but I like the XTC MTV version a little better. - Joe
I like that I can always find this just by remembering the word effervescence. - Zamms
Assuming I remember how to spell effervescence. - Zamms
Oh my god, this morning I was going to bump this. - Meg VMeg from Android
I need to bust out my XTC stuff - Steve C Team Marina
This is so good. It's something about how unlikely it is that she knows and likes this song, but she does, so what the fuck are you going to do/say about it. - Meg VMeg
And the eye contact at 3:38-3:45. Like, who knew this was a sexy song? Mandy Moore fucking knew. - Meg VMeg
And has committed to the occasional awkward "OWWW!" against everyone's better advice. - Meg VMeg
The arrangement is so odd. The bouncy cheesy synth in the second verse just KILLS me. Have you seen the track list on the album this is from: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Zamms
I want to listen to this sososososooooo much but everyone's still asleep here .... - LibrarianOnTheLoose
WAKE 'EM UP!!!! - Zamms
Oh wow, no, I didn't realize it was even on an album. How odd. - Meg VMeg
Russ says: "Is that Pat Benetar?" - LibrarianOnTheLoose
Benatar? spelling ish - LibrarianOnTheLoose
Meg VMeg
So here is a thing I realized about the song "Rocky Raccoon": she calls herself "Lil' McGill" using lil' as a cutesy modifier. It's NOT that she arbitrarily chooses to go by the actual name "Lil" for no real reason, while everyone thinks she's nuts, or that it's a dumb nonsensical rhyme. It does make sense: Lil' Nancy McGill.
One small problem that has been deep in the back of my mind since childhood has now been dispelled. Thank you. - Steele Lawman
I further posit that everyone makes a point of calling her Nancy because she's rather plump (or old?), and not lil' at all, and so calling herself that all the time gets on their nerves. - Meg VMeg
Alternatively, it could be a play on, "What? You mean, lil' old me?" and she's pretending to be innocent in the whole Rocky/Dan matter, but everyone knows that she's not. - Meg VMeg
Huh. I always surmised it was the actual name Lil, but it was her middle name because she hated her first name; everyone called her Nancy anyway because she grew up there and she went by her real first name until she got older. Kinda like how Indiana Jones goes by Indiana, but his father still calls him Junior because Indiana was their dog's name. - Mark Trapp
I feel like the fact that they were in "the black mining hills of Dakota" and later at a "hoedown" (etc. etc.) also backs up the Lil' theory (because of the Western theme). I plan to tweet at Yoko Ono tomorrow. - Meg VMeg
At least I'm not this crazy: http://beatlesnumber9.com/rocky... - Meg VMeg
Oh my. - Mark Trapp
Holy crap, she does a whole QandA day each Friday: http://imaginepeace.com/archive... - Meg VMeg
Mark's theory has also always been mine, but I like yours better. Also, please keep us posted. - laura x

Over-tipped, because the bar reeked of mildew and the patrons were shrieking, and so I felt bad for the bartender who made me an amazing cocktail involving black pepper syrup and muddled strawberries when I asked what he would recommend.

Dear Taxi Driver: You can't tell me that driving me to my house is basically taking money from your pocket, then in the next breath, complain that Uber is destroying the entire business. Or, you can, but I'm not going to be very sympathetic. Love, Meg
He said that because it's a short trip? - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
They usually say that if you take them to a neighborhood where they can't pick up a customer going back the way the taxi is headed. - Spidra Webster
Yes, I know why he said it (it's a long trip, Starmama, but he can't get a $$$$ fare in Brooklyn, because of a variety of reasons). In fact, I have had taxis refuse to drive me to Brooklyn before, which is illegal. The thing is that this is why people like Uber. - Meg VMeg
So much for that guy's tip. - Stephen Francoeur
Sorry, Meg, I was responding to Starmama. I very much understand why you'd be upset by that and that's why Uber and others are able to eat so much of the taxi cos' lunch. - Spidra Webster
Ah, gotcha! I also just got off a red-eye, so everything makes me crabby :) :( - Meg VMeg
Hated that when I was living in queens....rude cab drivers who didn't want to take me home - Hedgehog from Android
Man, a lot of times they could easily pick up fares in Brooklyn when they have to go out there, but they purposely avoid the hotspots and drive straight back to Manhattan because they don't want to risk having to go even deeper into the outer boroughs. - Mark Trapp
Yeah, and they could easily pick up fares if anyone in the outer boroughs ever expected to see them or get picked up by them, which we don't, so they can't. It's a very interesting ecosystem of politics/economics/logistics (especially now that green taxis and Uber are here), and I would have been happy to discuss it with him, but I think he wanted to "have a debate" or something (or make me feel bad or tip more). Who has the energy? - Meg VMeg

Roughly left to right: queso, beans, salsa, chips AND totopos, enchiladas suizas (but they do it with mole poblano), an almond mole dish called PUNTAS DE FILETE A LA NORTEÑA, shrimp quesadilla, nachos http://www.rediguana.com/menu - Meg VMeg
It's seriously amazing. You had to wait 40 minutes for a table, so we got everything to-go in 15. - Meg VMeg

Animals I did not hit at 2am, after driving 4 hours, after being awake since 3:30am: 3 deer with antlers, 2 deer without antlers, 2 jackrabbits, 1 cottontail rabbit, 1 freaked out raccoon frozen in the middle of the road.
The next day I did not hit a family of 5 Merriam's turkeys (3 babies) and 2 Kaibab squirrels. - Meg VMeg

[Scene: our garage sale] Friendly Dude: "Can I jew you to $20 for the lens?" Well, considering I'm Jewish I wouldn't put it that way." Dude: [not skipping a beat] "Oh yeah, I am too, a little bit."

YOU GUYS, ENGLISH DVORAK IS NOW A GOOGLE APPS "INPUT TOOLS" OPTION

I can't tell how irritating it is when I speak Spanish to people in my new neighborhood (where Spanish is basically all you hear). In my head, I look/sound like Peggy Hill (from King of the Hill), which makes me cringe, even though I actually can speak Spanish. And I don't want it to seem like I assume people can't speak English.
I assume you don't speak Spanish really slowly, then? If you speak at speed, maybe people assume you're just one of the good gringos? (DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT A LINGUIST OR A PERSON OF SPANISH DESCENT.) - Zamms
In my head, it's never fast/good enough to make up for how white I am. It's compounded by the fact that I often can't understand what people are saying to me in any language. - Meg VMeg
I wonder, is it like how I feel whenever try to speak Tagalog? I feel like people kind of laugh in amusement then talk to me in English anyway. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
My experience has been similar to Victor's: if they don't appreciate my attempt to speak their native language, they'll usually attempt to start speaking English to get me to stop. If they haven't done that to you yet, you're probably okay. Maybe. Hopefully. - Mark Trapp

Me: "What's the base unit for length in the metric system?" 8yo: "Baseball!"
America's favorite length unit. - Eivind from Android
There are only two kinds of countries in the world: those that use the metric system, and those that have landed a man on the moon. - Glen Campbell
Burma? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
The meter, until the last decade, was defined as the length of an arbitrary bar of platinum stored in a temperature- and humidity-controlled vault in Paris, France. Recently, they have redefined the metre as "the length of the path travelled by light in vacuum during a time interval of 1/299,792,458 of a second." - Glen Campbell
Only one country lost a $125 million satellite because of one unfulfilled imperial-metric conversion. http://www.wired.com/2010... - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
You're absolutely correct, Micah. If the metric system hadn't been around, that problem would have been avoided. - Glen Campbell
but how many phonebooks is it?! - Pete
They only taught us SI in all my science classes since elementary school, so I guess the socialists won ;) - Victor Ganata from iPhone

I'm trying out "Breeze," the new step-tracking iPhone app from RunKeeper. It uses the built-in motion tracking hardware of the iPhone 5S. Gets decent results. However, the notifications are ridiculous and patronizing. If it can't talk to me like I'm an adult, I have no respect for it.

I would have to punch my phone if I saw that. I don't remember if it was Endomodo or Runkeeper who had the "encouragement coach" while you're running, but it was like pure sarcasm, "Oh. Another half mile. Good. For. You." - Anika
Ugh: I hate apps that do that. MailChimp is another one. I'd like to know where in the world that type of condescending tone is considered familiar. - Mark Trapp

The movers say that my boxes are "a little heavy"? I'm not sure what I can do about that, at this point.
They might be making conversation. Maybe if I tip them in advance, the boxes will be lighter. - Meg VMeg
Does sound like the start of a protection racket. "These boxes are a little heavy: would be a shame if something were to happen to them. Perhaps our friend Andrew Jackson can ease the load." - Mark Trapp
Now they are implying that the 8 cement stairs leading up to my building mean that I am technically on the 4th floor (though it wouldn't cost more if I were on the 4th floor). Hmmmmmm... - Meg VMeg

Ugh, 5 replies in 10 minutes, but I don't think they understand how heavy it is. I should have charged $20 just to weed out the dreamers. - Meg VMeg
Two promises to pick it up tonight, but one has already decided that tomorrow morning is better. No response from the other. One promise for Sunday morning. Such a mess. - Meg VMeg
"I'll rent a ZipCar and we'll figure out a way to remove it -- I just moved a piano, so nothing fazes me lately!" Nope nope nope. This might be worse than a piano? Less compact, and must have been assembled inside the apartment, with no clear way to dissemble. Ughhhhhhhhhhh. - Meg VMeg
I'm going to have to delete the post, or charge money to make sure people want it enough to take it. - Meg VMeg
That's really worse than a piano? - Spidra Webster
It's pendulous, because you can't easily telescope or detach the stem (if that's even possible), and you'll have to have two people carrying the base. It's three flights down, with a 180 turn halfway through each flight. It would absolutely not fit in a ZipCar. God, I hate this lamp. I deleted the post and told the ZipCar guy he could text me in the morning when he's on his way. We'll see? - Meg VMeg
Two professions of love, LOVE, even after the post is deleted. Five other replies that are less amorous. Craigslist "free stuff" has become kind of an arms race here. Makes sense. Doesn't help. - Meg VMeg
ZipCar has trucks in its fleet so it's possible they're talking about one of them. Love. Wow. If only I knew that Craigslist freebies worked better than the personals... - Spidra Webster
Fingers crossed! The "free stuff" doesn't work well here, anymore. The noise to signal ratio is nutso (on both sides, because no one knows whether the other side is committing or not because no one commits because no one *can* commit, because it's free, so both sides bail constantly), and I know this, but I was desperate/checking to see if it was still the case. So you're left with 20 people who promise to come by, and 3 do, and then they're like, "Oh, you're right, this is heavy. I'll be right back!" - Meg VMeg
And I'm saying this as someone who truly loves (and owes a lot to) Craigslist, it's just frustrating. - Meg VMeg
130 pounds doesn't sound so heavy. I'll be right there in 6-7 months and will lug it down the stairs over my shoulder and then fly it back to California by stuffing it in the overhead bin. I TOTALLY PROMISE. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

The idea that yellow and blue make green still seems like crazy unexplainable magic to me.
ffhound_image_0.png
I very much remember learning about the color wheel and how colors blend as such when I was in kindergarten. Seeing watercolors do precisely that was mind-blowing for a five-year-old. - Akiva
Meanwhile, the fact presented by COSMOS that leaves are green simply because of what color they DON'T absorb? Get out, science. GET OUT. - Akiva
The part that really breaks my mind is how we see yellow because of our red and green photoreceptors. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
Subtractive vs additive color physics is what blows the cork right off my brain. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Blue and red making purple? Oh sure, makes sense. Red and yellow produce orange? Fine fine. But green is crazy to me. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Looking at the rainbow, green and orange made sense to me but purple did not. - Amit Patel
It's like a shady yellow. - Meg VMeg
CMYK vs RGB still confuses me. Like, you mix all the colors you get black vs you mix all the colors you get white. My mind confuses the two... - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
Was about to post what Zulema just said. That's the one that's *really* crazy. - Spidra Webster
Was about to post what... wait, I already did. - Micah
Out of curiosity, what about the combination of blue and yellow creating green seems like magic? Zulema: what's even crazier, to me at least, is that 0% C 0% M 0% Y 100% K isn't the blackest CMYK gets. There's a blacker black, a rich black, that's 75% C 68% M 67% Y and 90% K. - Mark Trapp
You know what's really crazy? There are yellow stars, there are blue stars, there are red and white and orange stars, but there aren't any green stars. WTF?!?! - Victor Ganata
Hey, that makes sense to me. All those colors appear in flame according to heat. Green doesn't appear unless you toss in an element with the right emission spectrum. - Spidra Webster
BLELLOW! - Eivind
Mixing paints is technically CMYK but it "feels" like RGB. Computer screens and the world we see is RGB (light) but mixing paints and printing stuff is CMYK but it has to emulate RGB. I think I got that right... :-& - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
CMYK is subtractive (adding pigments changes which wavelengths get absorbed or reflected) while RGB is additive (you're directly changing which wavelengths get transmitted). But, yeah, ultimately, we have RGB receptors in our retinae. - Victor Ganata
Mark T.: It seems like magic to me because it seems unpredictable and illogical and emergent, much like mixing bleach and ammonia produces a deadly gas. Yeah, this is all a bit "f'in' magnets, how do they work?" - Stephen Mack
Ahhh, I see. To me, it seems logical that green is created from yellow and blue: green, to me, just looks like a yellowish blue or a bluish yellow. But maybe that's a construct of education, forced upon me by the man, man. My head hurts now. - Mark Trapp
I'm even more confused now because I know you have to convert images to CMYK when you print them. I completely forgot to ask my photography teacher about that when we printing our "RGB" photos in class from Lightroom. The last job I had there it was always a big deal when printing designs from the printer to the ink used to the paper you were printing on and which colors will print more accurately. Like JEEZ, it's just a print of a design but OH NO, dumb girl, it's kind of a big deal. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
And that, not only can you use the colours to find what elements teh stars are made of, but you can use the colours to determine how fast they are moving away from you via red shifting! #mindblown - Ken Morley
Fun fact: you can get the colors in CMY from RGB and you can get the colors in RGB from CMY... http://stefanabrams.com/StefanA... - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart

Two of my cousins and my aunts and uncle live in Virginia, and they've always been huge fans of the Washington Football-Team-That-Uses-A-Slur-For-A-Name. I remember one Christmas when I was in England and about 8 or 9 years old, they sent us some porcelain football player figurines with lamps attached. Even as a boy I hated the name of the team.
I felt bad (because I'm sure the gifts were expensive, and shipping them overseas was even more expensive) but I refused to put the lamp in my room. It's one of the first presents I can remember rejecting. - Stephen Mack
Now my relatives lurk here on FF so they'll see this and may feel bad. Sorry, D&B. I know you view the name of the team as honoring Native Americans. I just can't see it that way. - Stephen Mack

ffbookmarklet v1.02 "FLICKA" Release — flickr.com photo auto-select feature addition
For the background on this code see ( http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... ). Okay, so what's this change you ask? The current design of flickr seems to break the image selection function of the bookmarklet (scan the original code and you'll see an ancient workaround that's no longer relevant). Tonight I wanted to quickly whip up a solution, couldn't get image selection working, so took a different tack. When the bookmarklet is clicked and you're on flickr.com the code will auto-select the "main image". This means it works on a single image view. So anyway, that's my hack for tonight. See above link for how to self-host on dropbox. Source gist: https://gist.github.com/wittman... Minified gist: https://gist.github.com/wittman... - Micah
