Basking in the simple joy of existence.

Me: I've hardly ever seen snakes camping. Her: They probably have trouble finding little sleeping bags.
If they did, would they also pretend to be inchworms? - Anika
LOL, yeah getting into the bags may also be an issue. :) - Ken Morley
"Her" made me chuckle :) - Eivind from Android
"She who shall be obeyed" was too long. ;) - Ken Morley
I imagined big snakes in knee high socks. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
There are certain places where it is advisable to shake out your sleeping bag before getting into it, Between the snakes, the spiders and the scorpions it's just good policy. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
They don't have that problem in Australia. With spiders as big as truck engines you can easily see they have taken over your sleeping bag. - Stephan Planken
And your boots... don't forget to check your boots. - Ken Morley
Who am I?
"I'm 21. I'm from Long Beach, California. I like making things. My dad was a car salesman, my mum was a stay-at-home mum. I was home-schooled. I dropped out of university 2 years ago. I'm a self-taught engineer, a hacker, a maker, an electronics enthusiast. And, oh yeah, I just sold my 2 yr-old company to Facebook for TWO BILLION DOLLARS!" - Ken Morley
I guess his parents will no longer be complaining about all the junk in the garage. :) - Ken Morley
A recent Facebook post from Palmer Luckey: "The company I founded (Oculus VR) was acquired by Facebook for $2 Billion. I only make this late seemingly obvious post because a surprising number of my friends and family are apparently still unaware of this, asking things like 'How are things going? Are you still working on that game box thing I heard about?'" << LOL, if it's not on Facebook, it didn't happen. :) - Ken Morley
I dunno. I doubt being rich makes moving stuff out of the garage any more appealing. :-) - John (bird whisperer)
A Redditer commented: "That's hilarious! His mom probably always caught slack with her friends who wanted to show off by talking about how their son is becoming a doctor and then asking her, 'How is that little game toy Palmer has been playing with coming along?'. " - Ken Morley
Weev Talks About Life In Prison And His Plans To Open A Hedge Fund - http://techcrunch.com/2014...
"TC: What can activists do to avoid your fate? Weev: One can abandon their citizenship in a tyranny for more reasonable shores. That’s about it. “Three Felonies a Day” is a great book explaining the commonplace reality of capricious indictments. A lot of people think I was indicted because I am an asshole. That is not true. Aaron Swartz was not an asshole. Matthew Keys is well loved by everyone as well. Deric Lostutter literally exposed rapists to public scrutiny, and he is still catching a case for it. The underlying issue is that there are real criminals that loot billions from our economy through computer crime. The FBI has neither the competence to identify them nor the ability to extradite them from Russia where they are operating. They receive a metric fuckton of money to solve this problem and have to act like they are doing something about it. They will not indict you because you are a bad operator. They will indict you because you are there. I overturned my verdict only... more... - Ken Morley from Bookmarklet

I'm a sucker for a heavy bass line and swampy, fuzzy reverb. :) - Ken Morley
Me, too. - Brent Schaus
Yeah, I've noticed. ;) - Ken Morley
I just bought four Black Keys albums on vinyl. I've always been a big fan but have yet to check out Auerbach's solo work. Will have to. - Derrick
Nice! I love the Black Keys too. His solo albums are worth checking out. - Ken Morley
I somehow missed this. It's similar to some of George Thoroughgood's stuff. I used to use several of Thoroughgood's songs for my running/workout mix. Check out his "Nighttime" cut if you're interested. (Though there are several versions, one of which is awesome--to me--and one of which is okay.) - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

NASA is being forced by the US government to fly a mission to Europa (via http://friendfeed.com/enoy)
NASA is being forced by the US government to fly a mission to Europa (via http://ff.im/1go9fl)
"And this is the weird bit: It seems, thanks to Houston Congressman John Culberson, who appears to be a bit of a science nerd, that NASA is now mandated by law to develop a mission to Europa. Culberson is basically forcing this mission upon NASA: In 2013 and 2014, despite NASA not requesting any money for a Europa mission, Culberson gave it $43 million and $80 million respectively. In the 2014 budget bill, finalized in December, there’s not a single mention of Mars or the Moon, but Europa’s right there on page 159. Culberson is expected to become the next chairman of the House Appropriations subcommittee, too — and if that happens, NASA may find itself very flush indeed. This is rather refreshing, after years of budget cuts/stagnation!" - Ken Morley
