Lurker. Drama-free. You can rest assured that if I ever decide to quit FF, it will be silently and in the dead of night.

Inside Muji's Beautiful, Affordable Prefab Houses
"The Japanese retailer Muji has built a cult following by offering nearly any object you could want in your home for not much money and proportionately great design. Now, the company is offering one more item to its line of 7,500 housewares: Actual houses. And there's a very good economic reason for the ambitious new venture." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Lay Off the Artisanal Ice, You Ignorant Hipsters | Mother Jones
Oh good grief. "Yes, artisanal ice is now a thing. In hipster meccas from Portland to Williamsburg, bars are serving up their drinks on extra-dense, extra-clear cubes, produced through a laborious process of freezing and carving. Cocktail connoisseurs swear the difference in flavor is worth the extra effort: In addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, the cubes' density and relatively large size mean they melt more slowly and dilute your drink less. But there's evidence that the fancy ice might not be the coolest thing ever to happen to the environment." - rönin from Bookmarklet

RT @uberfacts: There is a term for the opposite of "ambidextrous". It's "ambisinister", and it means you're equally clumsy with both hands.
That doesn't sound right. It should be "oopsiedextrous." - bentley
75% of my Minecraft deaths have come via creeper. I hate those sneaky bastards. Last one blew me into a wall where I died via suffocation.
That'll teach me to try to while the night away by leaving the crafting window open and browsing the web until daytime. Closed the window to find myself face to face w/a creeper. Also, don't hide in sand caves when there are creepers about. - rönin
Souflikar -> Charles-Henri Sanson -> Marie Antoinette -> Reign of Terror. Was there anyone they didn't guillotine back then? Geez.
Jean-Paul Marat was not guillotined. - John (bird whisperer)
Heh, if he had lived long enough he probably would have been. - rönin
Wasn't the first time I'd heard of Charles-Henri Sanson. Been reading the beautifully drawn (although rather morbid) manga, Innocent by Shinichi Sakamoto but hadn't thought of looking up the actual person until today. - rönin

Why every newborn you see on Facebook is wrapped in the same baby blanket - Quartz
"The morning after my second daughter was born I took her picture—she was beautiful, serene—and posted it on Facebook. There was much my Facebook friends could surmise from the photo, and much that marketers could mine: her date of birth and her eye color and her name, for instance. But what they knew for certain was that Athena had been born at the hospital. The dead giveaway? The blanket. You’ve seen the one, whether you’ve had a baby or not: it is mostly white, with thick blue and thinner pink stripes at the edges. If you’re on Facebook or Instagram, you’ve seen it tens, maybe hundreds of times." - rönin from Bookmarklet

There's a bit of meat in the middle of all that fat! - Andrew C (✔)
Just pan-seared a piece tonight w/some smoked salt. Sooooo good. Two minutes on one side and one on the other was enough to give it a nice, crunchy crust while keeping the middle melty. Damn. I don't think I could handle a normal sized steak of this though. - rönin from FFHound!

The Mysterious Polio-Like Disease Affecting American Kids - The Atlantic
But... but... EBOLA!!! "More than 100 cases of a polio-like syndrome causing full or partial paralysis of the arms or legs have been seen in children across the United States in recent months, according to doctors attending the annual meeting of the Child Neurology Society. Symptoms have ranged from mild weakness in a single arm to complete paralysis of arms, legs, and even the muscles controlling the lungs, leading in some cases to a need for surgery to insert a breathing tube, doctors said. The outbreak, which appears to be larger and more widespread than what has largely been previously reported by medical and news organizations, has neurologists and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention scrambling to find out what is causing these cases and how best to treat it." - rönin from Bookmarklet

ESPN investigates the historic Kasparov vs. IBM chess games
"The battle of wits between IBM and chess grandmaster Garry Kasparov is one of the biggest moments in the history of artificial intelligence. After conceding defeat, the Russian suggested that the IBM team had cheated their way to a victory, something that the company, to this day, refutes. A new film, from Nate Silver's FiveThirtyEight, seeks to shed some light on the accusation and what prompted his allegations. Directed by Hollywood uber-producer Frank Marshall, the documentary examines the controversial 44th move and how a simple computer error proved to be Kasparov's undoing." - rönin from Bookmarklet

This was tough to get through. =\ "IN DECEMBER 1970 TWO TEENAGERS DISAPPEARED FROM THE HEIGHTS NEIGHBORHOOD, IN HOUSTON. THEN ANOTHER AND ANOTHER AND ANOTHER. AS THE NUMBER OF MISSING KIDS GREW, NO ONE REALIZED THAT THE MOST PROLIFIC SERIAL KILLER THE COUNTRY HAD EVER SEEN—ALONG WITH HIS TEENAGE ACCOMPLICES—WAS LIVING COMFORTABLY AMONG THEM. OR THAT THE MYSTERY OF WHAT HAPPENED TO SO MANY OF HIS VICTIMS WOULD HAUNT THE CITY TO THIS DAY." - rönin from Bookmarklet
The saddest thing is that 40+ years later, police departments around the country still brush off clusters of missing people. Kids are somewhat protected with Amber Alerts, but legal adults don't get such treatment. - Anika

Korea’s New KFC Double Down Is Even More Horrifying Than the Original -- Grub Street
"Continuing the kind of innovative work that few fast-food chains have the gall to attempt these days, KFC Korea has abandoned all rational ideas about nutrition and dared to dream with this thing, the Zinger Double Down King. It's got chicken, beef, and pork that have been fried, grilled, and griddled, respectively. What's more is that it's still bunless, of course, like its forebear, and there's some kind of special sauce involved. It's on sale now, allegedly only has 750 calories, and from the looks of some of the photos that have been circulating online, we can safely say it's in the running for the most unwieldy and completely monstrous fast-food item of all time." - rönin from Bookmarklet

If You Took Away Their Bathrooms, Which Friends Character Would Pee on the Floor First? -- Vulture
"When we saw Ian Roach's re-creation of the cast of Friends in The Sims 4, our imaginations ran wild. Friends ended in 2004, but it left us with so many questions: Which Friend can survive the longest without food? Or a bathroom? If you locked them along together in their apartment, how long would it take Joey and Chandler to fall in love? We had Roach run a few simulations and now you'll never have to wonder again." - rönin from Bookmarklet
