I took an online Narcissistic Personality quiz and scored 6 out of 40. My vanity was to the max though. 😐 😊

This is cool, Z. - Uli
I scored 0 out of 40 and I have no red bars at all. *tap* *tap* Is this thing working? - bentley
You'd think I'd be the queen of selfies but I've grown out of that. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
I scored 20, which is much lower than I assumed. I thought it would be about 38. It seems to be hard to measure narcissism against societal norms. I think there's a very thin line between narcissism and being comfortable with yourself & your abilities. - Anika
You're so vain you probably think this quiz is about you... - Steve C Team Marina
The reason I took the quiz was I was listening to a podcast with Marc Maron and Dr Drew and they mentioned people with codependency usually scored a 40 (so like the highest score). So on the plus side, I'm not codependent but I'm apparently vain. :P I like to think I'm happy with what I see in the mirror for the most part. :) - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
6 and self-sufficient, with a minor in vanity :) - Ken Morley
I scored 2 out of 40. - John (bird whisperer)
2 out of 40 as well, though I'm not sure I agree with how they have some of those categorized. Being self-effacing isn't the opposite of narcissism, and there are a lot of instances where simply being comfortable with yourself seem conflated. - Jennifer Dittrich
45 out of 40 here. - Stephen Mack
I can't tell if they're testing narcissism as a trait or as part of NPD... and I'm too tired to read the research... - Alix May
LOL, Stephen. - Jenny H. from Android
8 and yeah some of those were hard to answer because neither statement was really an accurate reflection of how I feel. - Spidra Webster

Things I had to explain today in English class: Gerrymandering. Voter fraud. Voter ID laws. Americans' general scientific illiteracy and innumeracy. It was a rather depressing class.
They had a hard time understanding voter ID laws, probably because most of them are from countries with national ID cards so everyone has one. But the one guy who has been here 8 years got it. He said "I think in some states there is a deeply invested political interest in *not* making it easy for certain people to vote." - Jessie
Bam. Edit: Unfortunately, I spent a considerable amount of time explaining voter ID to people who have lived here their entire lives. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Yeah we spent a lot of time discussing differences in voting policies between states (esp. CA and TX because I've lived there) and how federal law may *say* everyone has a right to vote but the states have a lot of leeway in how that is carried out. A poll tax is illegal, for example, but charging an administrative fee to print a mandatory ID for someone who doesn't have one, without... more... - Jessie
It really was a bit sad for me having to explain to grown people that the conveniences that they take for granted are not universal. - MoTO: #TeamMarina

London's Iconic Red Phone Booths Are Becoming Solar-Powered Charging Stations | Co.Exist | ideas + impact
"They might be a classic London icon, but red pay phone booths have been used so little in the last decade that British Telecom started basically giving them away in 2008—for £1, a local community can adopt a phone booth and turn it into something else, like a library or the world's smallest pub. Still, those projects are fairly rare, and many booths end up as neglected, unintentional urinals (possibly used by those staggering home from the phone box pub). Now, two entrepreneurs are starting to turn them into solar-powered charging stations instead. "I lived outside a vandalized old phone box during my second year of university and thought, surely we can find a new use for these iconic, yet disrespected British structures," says Harold Craston, a recent London School of Economics graduate who started the new project, called Solarbox, with classmate Kirsty Kenney. "The idea to make them free and solar powered was born out of our interest in the use of public space and London's green... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

This Device Could Make It Easier To Find Your Veins -
Australian Red Cross Uses IR
Scientist have discovered a way to find your veins before poking around half a dozen times to find the spot. The Australian Red Cross Blood service is using a near infrared light device that locates blood to study whether being able to locate hard to find veins will result in reduced anxiety and thus make it more likely these types of donors will come back and donate again. The Blood Service… Read More - Johnn Luevanos
Officials want to know if animal spotted near Grand Canyon is gray wolf – Cronkite News -
Officials want to know if animal spotted near Grand Canyon is gray wolf – Cronkite News
"Federal officials said Thursday they are trying to determine whether a wolf-like animal that has been repeatedly spotted in an area north of the Grand Canyon is an endangered gray wolf, as environmental groups believe. The animal, first spotted by a visitor to the area on Oct. 4, would be the first gray wolf in that part of the state since the 1940s, if officials can confirm its species. “It would be premature to say whether it is a gray wolf, a wolf hybrid or, least likely, a Mexican gray wolf,” said Jeff Humphrey, a spokesman for the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service office in Phoenix. “That’s where our immediate course of action is, to ascertain what type of animal it is,” Humphrey said." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The animal, wearing what appears to be an inactive radio-tracking collar, has been photographed several times since it was first spotted. But Humphrey said his agency needs to collect and analyze scat from the animal, to be able to narrow its species through the process of elimination. “Based on photographs, it does not appear to be a Mexican wolf and its collar is similar to those used in the northern Rocky Mountain wolf recovery effort,” Fish and Wildlife officials said in a statement." - Jessie
How awesome would that be?! - Jenny H. from Android
Seriously! That would be an amazing recovery. - Jessie

As a schoolboy in England, the sports rotation for PE classes included nature walks on Wimbledon Common, cricket, football, rugby, and rifle shooting. I learned how to shoot a rifle at age 11. I have not touched a firearm since. #saturdayff
And by football I mean soccer. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
One time playing cricket, I was silly mid on, got too close and got whacked on the temple by the runner's bat. The cut bled ferociously, trickling down all over my cricket whites. Five stitches, I believe. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
When we were younger, it was rounders ( instead of rugby. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Jenny's #saturdayff from today ( reminded me that I took horseback riding lessons at the same time (but not as part of PE, private lessons that my parents arranged). It all seems so exotic to me now, but as a boy I just took it for granted that everyone learned how to shoot and ride in their childhood. - Stephen Mack
Your PE was a bit different from mine: rugby and cricket were there but we had cross country running and tennis in place of your walking and football, and we obviously were a bit behind the times because instead of rifle shooting we had to make do with throwing javelins. - Mark H
This is SPORTA! - Spidra Webster
Winters in Ohio meant lots of indoor PE activities. Probably more from trauma than actual ratio of sports chosen, but what I mostly remember playing was dodgeball. Oh, and the required dance portion of PE in middle school was square dancing, because it was the one least likely to get the teacher in trouble, though she would have taught breakdancing if she could. I always got paired with the guy who had warts on his hands. - Holly's favorite Anna

"While photographing shelves of human brains stored away in a closet at the University of Texas for his next book, Adam Voorhes happened upon a truly unique find: a brain with no folds. David Dexter, scientific director at Parkinson's UK Brain Bank, told New Scientist that he had never seen an adult brain like this before: "We do get the odd individual where certain sulci are missing but nothing to the extent of this brain.”" - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Dear FriendFeed: Thank you for being you. Thank you for showing the world that even if it's just in our tiny little corner of this social network on the big, bad Internet, there are people who genuinely care and want to help those in need. It's nice to know that I am associated with a group of people who form like Voltron into a gigantic heart. <3

The Laborers Who Keep Dick Pics and Beheadings Out of Your Facebook Feed - Wired
"[Michael] Baybayan is part of a massive labor force that handles 'content moderation'—the removal of offensive material—for US social-networking sites. As social media connects more people more intimately than ever before, companies have been confronted with the Grandma Problem: Now that grandparents routinely use services like Facebook to connect with their kids and grandkids, they are potentially exposed to the Internet’s panoply of jerks, racists, creeps, criminals, and bullies. They won’t continue to log on if they find their family photos sandwiched between a gruesome Russian highway accident and a hardcore porn video. Social media’s growth into a multibillion-dollar industry, and its lasting mainstream appeal, has depended in large part on companies’ ability to police the borders of their user-generated content—to ensure that Grandma never has to see images like the one Baybayan just nuked." - Victor Ganata
"So companies like Facebook and Twitter rely on an army of workers employed to soak up the worst of humanity in order to protect the rest of us. And there are legions of them—a vast, invisible pool of human labor." - Victor Ganata
"Hemanshu Nigam, the former chief security officer of MySpace who now runs online safety consultancy SSP Blue, estimates that the number of content moderators scrubbing the world’s social media sites, mobile apps, and cloud storage services runs to 'well over 100,000'—that is, about twice the total head count of Google and nearly 14 times that of Facebook." - Victor Ganata
"This work is increasingly done in the Philippines. A former US colony, the Philippines has maintained close cultural ties to the United States, which content moderation companies say helps Filipinos determine what Americans find offensive. And moderators in the Philippines can be hired for a fraction of American wages." - Victor Ganata
"Ryan Cardeno, a former contractor for Microsoft in the Philippines, told me that he made $500 per month by the end of his three-and-a-half-year tenure with outsourcing firm Sykes. Last year, Cardeno was offered $312 per month by another firm to moderate content for Facebook, paltry even by industry standards." - Victor Ganata
