What is your FF Comments/Likes Ratio? (Comments divided by Likes to 2nd decimal place - as of now)
1.05 (670/633) - Micah from Bookmarklet
Can you remind me again where to find those stats? - Brian Johns
Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah
0.75 (926/1226) - still relatively new here - mikepk
I only see my stats for the last week (17/14 = 1.21) Please tell me your 670 number is for more than just a week! - Brian Johns
1.44 (566/391) for brianjohns (after week tally you should see a comma then 'all time' count - I can see it on your page) - Micah
OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay
FFers use FF with their own strategy or simply default tendencies. The ratio is an interesting snapshot of behaviour. Thanks for joining in everyone, hope more keep flowing in. - Micah from twhirl
0.79 - Brian Roy
0.77 - Shey
0.76 - FFing Enigma
1.39. - Rochelle
1.61 - I only 'like' when I want to throw my support behind a topic but don't have anything constructive to add. - Bjorn Stromberg
1.12 - Tinfoil 2.0
5.08 (3181/626) ! - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
0.66 - I tend to 'like' things without needing to comment further, I guess, and I notice I usually like the things upon which I comment. Well, frequently. - ɐ ɯıʞ sıɹɥɔ
.39 (2457/6242) I guess I don't comment much. I do 'like' a lot of things, it would seem. - Bren
0.62 then again i have over 11,000 comments - Cee Bee
1.23 (5287/4229) - I am put to shame by Cee Bee's participation, good grief! - Lindsay
@Cee Bee I think you meant 0.62 - ◄ani625Ξ ಠ_ಠ
1.27 (902/705) - Leandro Ardissone ⍨
yes, thanks for the correction. lindsay, you're making me feel bad. lol - Cee Bee
0.8576, I only like mostly when I'm going to comment - Molly Song ;)
1.55 endlessly repeating. This Like/Comment included. - Dana D
before this comment: .69 I kid you not. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
So far: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81 ... (if you average 1 comment per like, you'd be 1.0 ... if you're 0.xx you might herd content more than discuss ... if you're whole numbers above 1 you may not 'like' much or discuss plenty or both) - Micah
CSV_A: 1.05,0.75,1.44,0.81,3.74,0.79,0.77,0.67,0.77,0.76,1.39,1.8,1.61,1.12,0.141,5.08,2.41,0.66,.39,0.62,.62,1.27,0.8576,1.551,0.69 - Micah
1.83 - Grant Bierman
I tend to like allot of photos which really don't need comments. - InPerpetualMotion(Gina k)
InPerpetualMotion(Gina k), I really liked this 'Like' of yours (in a series of pics, so I flickr fav'd it): http://friendfeed.com/e... and commented. Thanks! - Micah
.37 1002/2708 - Michael Fidler
this is what scobes walls would like if he didnt have FF - sean percival
I haven't seen Marc Canter's fabled fence (just heard about it), but I imagine this but on wood pickets :) - Micah
This week: 2.48 (1162:467) but this is not the norm, my likes usually match or are higher than comments, overall: 0.95 (14228:14846). - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks Michael, Kol! I'll recalculate average/median when we build up some more data points here. - Micah
1.03 748/723 - Keith - @tsudo
.68 6986/10194 Someone wrote a great article on the comment-like ratio a few months ago. Search on FriendFeed is crashing on me... I'll try to get the link. - Mitchell Tsai
Thanks Mitchell (btw, search crashing on me too - lots) - Micah

Thanks, Rachel! - Micah

.15 all time, .13 this week. - Alix May
Thank you, Alix and David! (and Alix, you're tied with Siavash for the Highest Like ratio. Wow). - Micah
2.94 - j1m
Thank you, j1m. Ok, I'm gonna roll this up into a csv and call it a night. - Micah
CSV_B: 0.95,0.7,3.46,3.98,1.02,0.15,0.34,0.52,1.31,0.56,0.16,1.39,4.62,2.63,0.15,0.52,2.94 - Micah
this week = 0.45%, alltime = 6.43% - chaz2b
CSV_B Mean: 1.49 (previous mean for CVS_A: 1.27) - Micah
Of course the numbers can easily lie, but I'm gonna say it anyway: "We're getting more conversational, people!" - Micah
0.49 (493/988) - Bluesun 2600
816 / 2502 = 0.326139089 overall | 50 / 233 = 0.214592275 this week I like much more than I comment. (maths via google) - Chris Loft
3026/5013 = 0.6036 - Roger Chen
chaz2b, Bluesun 2600, Roger, Nicholas — thank you! - Micah
5.25 but I don't know what this *means, yet. maybe I'm just stingy with my "likes" compared to others? - Marg Uerite
Thanks jamar78 and Marg! - Micah
A recent change in FF: now the comment count shows total number of comments (previously multiple comments in one thread only counted as one) http://friendfeed.com/e... so all the numbers above are from the old methodology.... - David HC Soul
My new ratio: 0.76 all time (old methodology .52).... this week 1.39 - David HC Soul
*bump* - Micah
1.26 (2965/2346) - Micah
Thanks, Glen and pea! - Micah
Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah
.38 - Ryan Dadey
Ryan, I have to say, that's one high caliber ratio ;) - Micah
An update it's .44 which is an improvement from .36 - Michael Fidler
2.94 1040/354 I have likes set to post to twitter automatically, so I'm careful with them. :) - guruvan (Rob Nelson)

Thank you, amin/gnu - Micah
1.45 (4374/3026) - Micah
0.92 now. I think the movie reviews have been getting me closer to a 1 to 1 ratio. - Steven Perez
Steven, yep, you were a 0.85 in April. - Micah
2.10 now ... - Amani
0.97 now. - Eric Johnson
Amani, so your comments have climbed a bit. - Micah
Thanks, Eric. - Micah
yes, but i am not consciously "not liking" things - Amani from IM
Probably, just chattier then :) - Micah
I'm down from 7.16 to 6.94 :-) - Ken Sheppardson
the live NBA playoff threads have ALOT to do with it. - Amani from IM
Ken, the FCC may be interested to explore how your "I'm down" may be offensively self-deprecating ;) - Micah
.56 eeep, must try harder - Threepwood
4.52. I don't bother to like things I've commented on, since commenting already flags it as interesting. - Andy Bakun
0.46 (1698/3638) - Glenn Slaven
Threepwood, Andy, Glenn - thanks (Andy, that's my mo too; then I'll Like if it warrants a "double vote"). - Micah
1.31 (4,471/3,401) - Karoli
Thanks, Karoli. And the both of us have a _very_ similar ratio and absolute numbers. wow. - Micah
Thanks, Ryo! - Micah
Andy, scroll upward and you'll see a couple calculations from before (January: Average: 1.27 | Median: 0.81) - Micah
In March the Mean was: 1.49 - Micah

Thanks, tom. And though a bit verbose, your friend Wolfram is resourceful :D - Micah
0.55 (254/444) - Willem (@wim66) ☠
Thank you, Willem. - Micah
In April you were 0.97, so you're liking more / commenting less. - Micah
1.88 (779/414) - Ton Zijp
Thanks, Ton. - Micah

0.74 (1970/2667) - Blank of Two Blanks
And thank you Parth, Scott. - Micah
Parth, compared to your April numbers, you've been consistent. - Micah
Thanks, Rick! - Micah
.54 (4148/7674) Updated! - Michael Fidler
Rick, you mean that face with glasses I photoshopped tint into with an apparently disembodied arm which is actually very much attached to my eldest son? It's mostly just me :) - Micah
Thanks, Michael. Yes, you have a rising tide of comment percentage (oh, wow, you were one of the originals from January - cool!) - Micah
1.82 from 798 comments / 438 likes - David Damore
Thanks, nivé and David! - Micah
2027/1594 = 1.27 - Brome
0.58 - Marc Dong
2.9 (3,242/1,116) mhhh.. time to straighten my use of FF a bit.. thanks for this entry - Thierry R. Andriamirado
Brome, Marc and Thierry - thank you! - Micah
Thierry - yeah, 2.9 is fairly high - got to pick the pace on like side :) [but hey, whatever works for you is fine] - Micah
1.91 - MiniMage
Thank you Nicholas and MiniMage! - Micah
Yeah, that's a decent upward rise in comments, Nicholas. - Micah
.6 (6,000/10,000) 3rd update - Now it's time to flip this on its head. My goal is to have (16,000/16,000) next time I post here. Regardless of what happens, I'm just looking forward to the next 10,000 comments, likes, posts, and new relationships I make here. It's all good! - Michael Fidler
1.76 (7539/4290) My commenting habits haven't chanced much, but it felt like I clicked Like a lot less, and this ratio confirms that for me. - Micah
It's that time again. - Micah
Thanks, Laura! (you're a 50-caliber gal!) - Micah
0.64 - Imabug
Thank you, Imabug. - Micah

Thanks Imabug, directeur, Steven, RAPatton, Jim, Brent and metalerik! - Micah
0.78 - Pete D
.82 as of right now. edit: on January 8th it was 0.39 -- when I saw that, I decided to make more of an effort to comment. When I hit 10k "likes" I decided I wouldn't "like" anything else until I also had 10k comments. - Bren
And thank you Jimminy, Pete, Bren and Penguin! - Micah
2.47 as of right now. - Jonas, Leper of FF
Micah, are you doing something with these numbers? If so sounds interesting. - NOT THE CRICKET
0.58 - Absentee
Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah
Jonas, James and Kurt - thanks you! - Micah
You're welcome. I hope the results do some good. :-) - Absentee
.31. I have almost 4 times as many likes as comments. - edythe
Thank you edythe and Eric! - Micah
195/245 makes 0.8 rounded not including this one which would be 196/245 making 0.8 unrounded, - tom murphy
Thanks, Tom. - Micah
1.98 (588/297) - Bryan Zirkel
1.67 (19,550/11,684) - Mitchell Tsai
Bryan, Mitchell and Jeff P. - thanks, guys! - Micah

Wow, Penguin is a prolific liker! - Laura Norvig
2.67 (875/328) - Nathalie
Thank you, Nathalie! - Micah
Thanks, Spidra and Mark! - Micah

Jammy and Mathew, thank you very much. - Micah
I don't know I just like that picture - Brian Hendrickson

Mine was exactly 2:1 about a week ago. Did a screenshot when I had 2,000 comments and 1,000 likes. - Joe from iPod
SuezanneC, Brian, B E N and Joe - thank you all very much! - Micah
Joe, it's like see the odometer click through a nice round number - it's just inexplicably engaging. :) - Micah
1.40, nearly the square root of two. - Vezquex
Thanks, Raphael and Andy! - Micah
1.15 (6777/5873) - JA Castillo
12.23 (844 / 69 ) I guess I take my likes seriously ;) - Chris Myles
Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah
383/372 - Ashish
'Just clicking "Like" seems too easy' — Jason, that's because you're from the Chatty-ite tribe :) - Micah
Thanks, ashish. - Micah
wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah
When I first saw this: 1.91 Sept 28: 1.94 - MiniMage
536 comments in the last month has me at .8736...still creeping toward 1.00 - Bren
Thanks, MiniMage (2x participant!), Bren (3x!) and Shannon (your inaugural visit!) - Micah
Thank you, SustainedEuphoria. - Micah
Thanks, Mark. - Micah
1.45 - Brett Kelly

5.67 all time. Second highest ratio on here. Woot! I love to talk. - Kevin L
Thank you both, Kevin and mridul (the two of you balance it each well :) - Micah
1.80 (10,189 / 5,666) [compared to Likes, my Comments still continue to rise] - Micah
1.02 (10323/10161) - Bren
.5666 currently (30,084/53,093) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Thanks, Bren. - Micah
Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah
1.19 - Joe Bonner
Micah this is like 11 months ago, I see you have almost doubled your rate. lets make a graph for everybody now, :) - ۳۰ مرغ Loves Y'ALLLLL

Micro Four Thirds Cameras Can Now be an Entire System » Photography Bay | Digital Camera Reviews, News and Resources
"The Olympus EP-1 has become an exceedingly popular camera. Besides the mass amounts of media coverage that one sees/reads, they’re very hard to get your hands on as the units move very fast. But besides being able to take pictures, this camera and its relative the Panasonic GH1 shoot video: good quality video too. One of the criticisms of the system is not having lots of lenses available for the system. That criticism is very, very untrue." - Mel Buckpitt from Bookmarklet
Awesome. When I saw that you could get an adapter for Nikon F-mount lenses, I was really excited that this camera wouldn't have to require its own set of lenses. Can't wait to get my hands on one of these... - Cheryl Jones
This might just become the 2nd camera for most DSLR users - Mel Buckpitt
Could be... The LX3 seems to be the P&S of choice for many DSLR users, but the E-P1 is getting a ton of positive press. The E-P1 really reminds me of a DSLR version of the LX3, actually. Its feature set, including the different film modes, is similar. That's part of the draw for me. :) - Cheryl Jones
I was thinking the same thing Cheryl. Basically a LX3 that can swap out lens. - Rodfather
Well, it's noticeably larger than the LX3 which works in that it's easier and more comfortable to operate. But if portability is your ultimate goal, you'll probably want to stick with the LX3 or its more recently rumored successor. Yes, there are a whole slew of lens adapters out or coming out for it but you lose AF and other info unless you stick with the regular or micro 4/3 lenses. - rönin
@Rodfather: Yeah, the only thing I wish the LX3 had is a longer zoom. Doable with interchangeable lenses. :) - Cheryl Jones
I'm keeping my eye on the Panasonic GH1 micro 4/3's. I was blown away at the video footage here: http://vimeo.com/4405518. It can record video at 1080p or even 720p @60p. Here's his first impression: http://philipbloom.co.uk/2009.... It's too expensive for me right now though. - Rodfather
Yeah, when I saw the GH1 a while back I was quite interested in its video capability. But considering I already have the LX3 and D90 which can take take 720p video, I thought getting the GH1 would be unjustifiable. But the E-P1 is totally justifiable. And I totally want one, even if I have to wait for Christmas and beg my family to just give me money to put towards it. :) - Cheryl Jones from BuddyFeed
The AF is fine for most purposes. It's not the fastest AF but I haven't had it hunt much to obtain focus unless there simply wasn't enough contrast for it to work. I haven't noticed much shutter lag. Olympus apparently put in some effort to get it down to DSLR range and it works fine for me. Overall it feels a little faster than the LX3 but the LX3 wasn't a slowpoke to begin with. - rönin
@Cecily: You were probably asking about the speed of the AF on the E-P1, but as far as the AF on the LX3, it's pretty fast in general, unless you put it into macro focusing mode. The LX3 has several different AF modes including a high-speed, 1-area mode for sports-type shooting. So it bodes well that the E-P1 is (or feels) faster than the LX3. The D90's focusing when in live mode is... more... - Cheryl Jones

I love Vernazza. My profile photo (on FriendFeed and Facebook) was shot here in Nov 2005 ($208 RT SFO-MIL Milan) near the SE corner of the building lights (a little bit right of dead-center in this photo), sitting on the rocks during sunset. It was someone else's camera. The amazing photos in Cinque Terre - two friends downloaded their pics onto my computer to have space to shoot more pics - convinced me to buy my first camera on my return home. Now it's 130,000+ pics later... - Mitchell Tsai

Flickr User Shepherd Johnson Says Yahoo Security Officer and Former FBI Agent John Zent Threatens to Call Police on Him After Flickr Nuked His Account - http://thomashawk.com/2009...
And this is where things get weird…. After being totally ignored in his attempts to resolve his account deletion issue with Flickr/Yahoo staff. Johnson says that today he finally did receive a call from someone at Yahoo. Only it wasn’t someone from Flickr’s customer care division at all. it was from someone named John Zent, apparently from Yahoo’s Legal Department’s Risk Management Group. Zent identified himself as a security professional for Yahoo as well as a former FBI Special Agent, Johnson told me. He told me that Zent threatened to have him removed from Flickr for TOS violations as well as have his IP address banned from the site. Zent went on to accuse Johnson of harassment and said that if he did not stop calling Yahoo that he would call the Sunnyvale Police on Johnson. “I was astonished that he had threatened to call the police on a customer who merely had an account dispute which he wanted to have resolved,” said Johnson. - Thomas Hawk
Jason Khoury from Yahoo PR just emailed me back the following response from Yahoo on this matter: “It is Yahoo! policy that we don’t discuss members’ accounts and their activity.” - Thomas Hawk
I'm still trying to figure out if there is some way I can use the FOIA to try and obtain any email correspondence from the Whitehouse to Flickr and vice versa. I'm not sure if that sort of thing is easily obtained or not. Surely they've at least had correspondence in terms of setting up the account and I'd assume even brief conversations about what they and flickr might expect from this... more... - Thomas Hawk

Well done, Anthony! (Though to tell the truth I couldn't really tell what was special about the pic until I remembered that it never rains in LA. To me, it looked like simple clouds over a hill - a view I see most days. That's not to say I'm underestimating the impact of the picture or the fire and the devastation that it had caused, just that I forget there are places where clouds are unusual). - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Thanks, WoH - although pyrocumulus are quite rare everywhere. I think what made the picture a winner was the clouds + the iconography + the scale. My $0.02. - Anthony Citrano
Even though I knew they were clouds of smoke they didn't look like them at first glance. After a while I realised I had never seen daylight pics of the Hollywood sign with anything other than blue sky. To people from LA it would have obviously been an unusual sight (quite apart from the fact they were pyrocumulus. And thanks - I've expanded my word power today, too! :)). - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
The other thing is that those clouds are 15 miles away and were reaching heights of 50,000 feet - Anthony Citrano
Again, hard to tell from Canada....:P Okay - I get that the pics are really good, it's just I didn't at first. Next time I'll stick to saying you're wonderful. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
That' unreal. - James Stratford
@WoH: I think that'll be fantastic, I love that - Anthony Citrano
Congrats - in this case 2+2 = so much more, for those that have been there - knowing what is behind that hillside and the quantity of smoke - simply makes my jaw drop - very impactful - Steve Hand

"Neil Gaiman can claim many honorifics: acclaimed comics writer, bestselling novelist, Newbery Award-winning children's author, dater of rock stars. To this list we can now add "owner of an intimidatingly awesome book collection." Shelfari, the online social networking site for book lovers, has posted an astonishing photo gallery of Gaiman's wall-to-wall, floor-to-ceiling personal library; if possible, it's even more impressive than you might have imagined the Sandman scribe's bookshelves to be. As a person who actually purchased a house in part to have more shelf space, I can only say that the creator of Dream is living the dream." - RAPatton

Extreme steel 'Velcro' takes a 35-tonne load - http://www.newscientist.com/article...
Extreme steel 'Velcro' takes a 35-tonne load
"A square metre of the new fastener, called Metaklett, is capable of supporting 35 tonnes at temperatures up to 800 ºC, claim Josef Mair and colleagues at the Technical University of Munich, Germany. And just like everyday Velcro it can be opened up without specialised tools and used again. Conventional hook-and-loop fasteners are used for everything from bandages to cable boots in aircraft and securing prosthetic limbs. Mair thinks his spring-steel fastener is tough enough to be used for building facades or car assembly. "A car parked in direct sunlight can reach temperatures of 80 °C, and temperatures of several hundred °C can arise around the exhaust manifold," he says, but Metaklett should be able to shrug off such extremes." - Jeffrey Marsh from Bookmarklet

O.k so after we dined at the Ritz on Saturday, we are low keying at home. Since TH is not the champagne type, i only chill a half bottle of what I think is a old bottle guest pawned off on us from one of Christmas party- 1985 Schramsberg Cremant Demi-Sec. We both enjoyed it so much, I decide to google where I can get more. 1st search turns up that the Bush White house served it for the Prime Minister of Hungry in 1990. Good to see they still hold up after all this time. - Mrsth

Mark Trapp
So I've started a blog, The Shibboleth, that's meant to discuss topics of faith, philosophy of religion, and theology from the perspective of a once-atheist, now rediscovering Christian (i.e., me). I'm having a bit of a writer's block tonight, so FriendFeed, I'm asking for your help. Any ideas?
If you're interested in this sort of thing, the blog, of course, is here: http://theshibboleth.com. - Mark Trapp
My brain's drained working on my own new blog but I'm 100% on board with you via RSS. - Akiva
Thanks, guys. It's been something I've been meaning to do for a while. Hopefully it'll be interesting! - Mark Trapp
Eric: I don't know if I want to touch on evolution so soon after the last post on it (http://theshibboleth.com/2009...), but I think the comment still makes the same fallacy Hunter outlines. Having studied artificial intelligence, Walton misunderstands or underestimates the state of strong AI. most strong AI work is exactly what he seems to believe can't... more... - Mark Trapp
1UP Mark. I'm in this area of limbo where I'm trying to figure out my own matters of faith. I look forward to the site. - Derrick
Cool, Derrick: hopefully this is right up your alley. I think tonight I'm going to go with the trilemma (Jesus must be a liar, a lunatic, or Lord). - Mark Trapp
do you have to believe in God in order to... call yourself an observant religious person? - edythe
edythe: do you mean, can you be a Christian if you don't believe in God? I don't think you can. Tonight's post (http://friendfeed.com/itafrom...) touches on one aspect of that thought, but that's a really good question for the weekly Q&A post (http://friendfeed.com/itafrom...). - Mark Trapp
Subscribed! - Joey Gibson
One that's always fun is, how do you define faith? - Ordinarybug Heather
Heather: I'll add it to my list, thanks! Jason: I'm already in The Gospel room (http://friendfeed.com/thegosp...). Where's the Scripture room? - Mark Trapp
I like the "Ask a Catholic" idea, and will look for that! - Kathy Fitch
when I first talked to the rabbi about converting, I asked him if I had to believe in G-d, and I was prepared to say that it was something I couldn't do if my conversion would make me a hypocrite. But he said that if I came to him and said I *knew* G-d existed, he would no more advice me to convert than he would if I came to him and said I knew G-d *didn't* exist. [felt the need to omit the "o" in this comment, out of respect for my rabbi, and Jews, and my conversion.] - edythe
edythe: that's interesting, and different from the starting position one's supposed to have before formally converting to Christianity. joey: I don't have the patience to listen to podcasts. - Mark Trapp
Whoa Mark, that's interesting, indeed! Good luck in your spiritual journeys. They will be interesting, I can vouch for that. And for your blog, maybe you could touch on "intelligent design" principles. And a good site is 'Reasons to Believe'. I think it's http://www.reasons.org (forgive me if that URL is wrong. In which case, you can simply Google for it) - Pandu ● IT Optimizer from fftogo
Yay, I learned something new about a cool friendfeeder. Tis nice when to jump back and feel the same stuff. - Mathew A. Koeneker
I learned early on in my days of FriendFeed to not mess with Mark on issues of Christianity and Catholicism. I've learned a lot from him and his blog on the subject continues to illuminate. It's good stuff. - Akiva

BULLETIN -- REPORT: UAE SEIZES SHIP CARRYING NORTH KOREAN WEAPONS TO IRAN.
dang. i mean, dang that's serious. - Gus
Good for the UAE - RAPatton
and the UAE knew this... how? - MikeAmundsen
Mossad or the CIA I would guess. - Matt G
Props to UAE, but is it only a matter of time before Iran or N. Korea threaten UAE with nuclear annihilation? - JA Castillo
type of weapon? - Stuart Evans
My bets on the Mossad. The CIA is being neutered. Whoever did it, at least someone still has some courage and willingness to act. - Robert Kenney
JA, Iran won't threaten anyone with nuclear annihilation except Israel - RAPatton
"and the UAE knew this... how?" - I assume this is the same ship that has been shadowed since leaving North Korea. I believe it was forced to dock in Macau for a search. The real import of this story is that an Arab country (instead of the US, or Russia) seized the ship - good diplomatic work by someone, somewhere. - John Craft
ahh at least not nuclear - for now - Stuart Evans

Giant Coconut Crab (birgus latro) - http://www.magazine13.com/giant-c...
Giant Coconut Crab (birgus latro)
Giant Coconut Crab (birgus latro)
"The coconut crab, Birgus latro, is the largest land-living arthropod in the world, and is probably at the upper limit of how big terrestrial animals with exoskeletons can become in today’s atmosphere. The species inhabits the coastal forest regions of many Indo-Pacific islands, although localized extinction has occurred where the crab is sympatric with man. Generally nocturnal, they remain hidden during the day and emerge only on some nights to forage. Their body is divided into four regions; the cephalic lobe, forepart, trunk, and opisthosoma. It is a highly apomorphic hermit crab and is known for its ability to crack coconuts with its strong pincers to eat the contents. It is the only species of the genus Birgus." - April Buchheit from Bookmarklet
Man that's creepy. - Lindsay
creepy, yes... but how's it taste? - Jim: with more caffeine!

Wow! That is crazy. Cool creature - Jim Goldstein from iPhone
RUNN!!! - AJ Batac
*cries* - Derrick
They are VERY good to eat, one of my favorite foods from our sailing trip. The only problem is I'm a lobster fan myself so I went straight for the tail. It is filled with a brown goo I called butt butter.. it tastes like smokey peanut butter mixed with saltwater. The claws are fantastic.. better than lobster!! You have to be VERY careful they can snap your fingers off . You better be careful not to overfeed those cure little hermit crabs you all have.. cause that is what you will get!! - Chris Myles
reminds me of the heads crabs in Half-Life. :) - BRҰANSAҰS

I wonder how fast are they... I would stare at it for hours. - Franc, a rememberer
I wonder how much coconut flavour the meat has. - Andrew C (✔)
Not much but it does soften the meat. It's the best darn arthropod meat I have ever tasted. hmm first time I've ever used arthropod and meat in the same sentence. When you kill them (machete into the soft under belly) nothing but coconut liquid comes out (the clear stuff not the milk). Anyone ever tried a coconut apple (the foam that forms inside after a coconut starts to sprout)? yumm! - Chris Myles

So sweet! I adore lutino cockatiels! My mom has a THIRTY YEAR OLD lutino cockatiel. I joke you not -- we got him for her for Christmas 30 years ago. He is venerable. Also grumpy, cranky, mostly blind, and completely unable to fly. He does, however, still hear, and he will still converse and whistle with me. He was such a sweetheart. - Ordinarybug Heather
@Heather - I believe you... I had one cockatiel that lived to be 15 (Marty) and another that was 18 (Jennifer) before she died (I got them about a year apart from each other). Taco (the one pictured) is the bird we got after Jenny passed on. Marty was my sweetheart... Jenny was always crotchety and mean but she bonded to Marty and not me (since I got her second). Tore me up when Marty passed on... it was like my childhood was officially over then. - Lindsay
My brother had a cockatiel growing up. We found out after we got him that you really need to get them hand-fed because otherwise, they are mean critters. But eventually, we found things that he liked to eat that we could coax him out of his meanness with. Some years later, I was catering a movie shoot at somebody's apartment and they had a 'tiel. And so I was the cockatiel wrangler because I could deal with their bird and get him away from shooting where needed. - Wirehead

The powerful and mysterious brain circuitry that makes us love Google, Twitter, and texting.
"But to Washington State University neuroscientist Jaak Panksepp, this supposed pleasure center didn't look very much like it was producing pleasure. Those self-stimulating rats, and later those humans, did not exhibit the euphoric satisfaction of creatures eating Double Stuf Oreos or repeatedly having orgasms. The animals, he writes in Affective Neuroscience: The Foundations of Human and Animal Emotions, were "excessively excited, even crazed." The rats were in a constant state of sniffing and foraging. Some of the human subjects described feeling sexually aroused but didn't experience climax. Mammals stimulating the lateral hypothalamus seem to be caught in a loop, Panksepp writes, "where each stimulation evoked a reinvigorated search strategy". It is an emotional state Panksepp tried many names for: curiosity, interest, foraging, anticipation, craving, expectancy. He finally settled on seeking. ... In order to have the maximum effect, the cues should be small, discrete,... more... - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet

Crap. This is me. I bet it's a lot of you guys, too. I did hold still long enough to read both pages of this article. But I've neglected to get the cleaning done that I need to do and now it's late. I'm about to finally get up and do it now, but, still... my bigger problem is tearing myself away long enough to do anything important. How is anyone focusing long enough to make any complex artwork anymore? - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
All these friendfeed posts activates our dopamine pumping system but not enough to activate the liking system. No wonder if I work on something interesting time seems to go fast but very slow if i find it boring. Blame the dopamine. - Ashish from iPhone

Thank you, Jeannette. It seems to work well as a background image so going to put it up where a service lets me. :-) Plurk for one might work. Can anyone suggest other services that allow theme editing like FriendFeed and Twitter? - Kol Tregaskes
Hmmm, try Tumblr and Ning. Posterous might have customization, too...? - Jeannette Gutierrez
"Looks like wheat to me." - 'Corn' in England means 'cereal grains.' Wheat is corn, rye is corn, and maize is corn. - John Craft
Now that I'm seeing the whole picture (I just saw this on your Twitter and FriendFeed backgrounds), now I really like it. - John E. Bredehoft
So it *is* a cornfield. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks, John and John. :-) - Kol Tregaskes

"Comet McNaught (C/2006 P1) was discovered by British-Australian astronomer Robert H. McNaught on August 7, 2006 during routine observations. Then, the comet was too dim to be seen with the naked eye but brightened rapidly and reached naked-eye visibility in early January of 2007.....The following photographs were all taken between mid January of 2007, when the comet was visible in the northern hemisphere, and late January when it had moved south and developed a long dust trail." - Live4Emma (L4S)
