White People Talk About The White Experience For 'The Whiteness Project': Gothamist
"This week, filmmaker Whitney Dow launched "The Whiteness Project," a non-satirical, "deadly serious" multi-platform investigation into "how Americans who identify as 'white' experience their ethnicity." You can see the first round of interviews with 24 Buffalo, New York residents on the website here, and a preview of the project, via backer PBS, below." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Apple Will Reportedly Pull All Bose Products From Retail Stores | TechnoBuffalo
"Apple retail stores will reportedly cease selling Bose products beginning next week. According to sources speaking with MacRumors, the Cupertino company has already given the executive order to purge stores of the premium audio brand, which is in direct competition with Apple’s recent Beats acquisition." - Me from Bookmarklet
That seems odd, what about all the other non-Bose stuff? Sennheiser, etc. - rönin
But Bose specifically scored a deal with the NFL that will enforce players, etc, from wearing Beats gear at / headed to / leaving games. As far as I understand it. - Andrew C (✔)

When in the world did they start putting pumpkin in EVERYTHING just cause Halloween is coming? Getting a tad ridiculous.
Even more so: it's not really about Halloween, but pumpkin pie and Thanksgiving. It'll only ratchet up another notch after Halloween is done. - Jennifer Dittrich
"Pumpkin spice" often only means the spices used in pumpkin pie, which -- without googling it -- I think are mostly nutmeg and cinnamon. - Andrew C (✔)
This was brought about by me receiving Trader Joe's monthly flyer today which includes the following: Pumpkin Bread & Muffin Mix, Pumpkin Spice Coffee, Pumpkin O's, Pumpkin Spiced Pumpkin Seeds, Country Pumpkin Spice Granola, Pumpkin Pancake & Waffle Mix, Pumpkin Ice Cream, Pumpkin Rolls w/Pumpkin Spice Icing, Pumpkin Cream Cheese Muffins, Gluten Free Pumpkin Pancake Mix, Mini Pumpkin... more... - rönin

Yeah, but TJ is real clear in the Frequent Flyer about going overboard with pumpkin (most of it actually pumpkin; they're clear when it's pumpkin spices, as in the pumpkin-spiced pumpkin seeds). They have fun with it. (Probably the only sales pitch I read cover-to-cover is TJ's Frequent Flyer, nowhere near monthly but always fun.) - Walt Crawford
Never mind. By the time it is Thanksgiving, pumpkin everything will be over and the the peppermint/candy cane flavored everything will be in full force. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

How A Coal Miner's Autopsy Proved A Top Doctor Wrong - http://www.buzzfeed.com/chrisha...
How A Coal Miner's Autopsy Proved A Top Doctor Wrong
"Like many other miners, he had lost primarily because of the opinions of a unit of doctors at the Johns Hopkins Medical Institutions that had long been the go-to place for coal companies seeking negative X-ray readings to help defeat a benefits claim. The longtime leader of the unit, Dr. Paul Wheeler, testified against Steve, and the judge determined that his opinion trumped all others, as judges have in many other cases. Today, however, there is final and overwhelming evidence that Wheeler was wrong: Steve’s autopsy." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Developers Aren't Going to Solve the Housing Crisis in San Francisco | [people. power. media] | Broadcasting community voices to impact public policy - http://www.peoplepowermedia.net/housing...

"American Horror Story: Freak Show" and the History of the Scary Clown - The Atlantic
Damn this photo is nuts. But the last part of the last sentence in this paragraph made me laugh. "Clowns, it's fair to say, are not currently having the best time of it, PR-wise. The fourth season of American Horror Story, which debuted Wednesday, features Twisty the Clown as the primary antagonist: a terrifying perversion of the profession with a mask of grinning, oversized teeth and distorted black lips. In the opening episode, Twisty bounds up to a young couple in broad daylight, knocks them both out with juggling clubs, stabs the young man over and over again, kidnaps the woman and locks her up with a young boy in a decrepit old school bus, and forces them both to watch him craft balloon animals (there being clearly no limits to his malevolence)." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Rise and Shine - What kids all around the world eat for breakfast - NYTimes.com
"Americans tend to lack imagination when it comes to breakfast. The vast majority of us, surveys say, start our days with cold cereal — and those of us with children are more likely to buy the kinds with the most sugar. Children all over the world eat cornflakes and drink chocolate milk, of course, but in many places they also eat things that would strike the average American palate as strange, or worse." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Creepy Cops Are Arresting Men At Port Authority For Urinating Vigorously: Gothamist
I don't even... "Up until now, we thought the worst thing that could happen at a men's room urinal is that we're squished in-between two rotund gentleman audibly relieving themselves after holding it in for an English Patient-length film. But there is something much creepier: when you're being stared at by an undercover cop who is trying to determine whether you are masturbating at a urinal. "You know how when you have a feeling someone is looking at you?" a man named Miguel told the Times about his experience with this phenomenon. "So I look over and see someone is smiling at me. It was like a smirk."" - rönin from Bookmarklet

The Creepy Truth About the Sexual Harassment of Models - FLARE - http://www.flare.com/fashion...
The Creepy Truth About the Sexual Harassment of Models - FLARE
"She has faced resistance, she says. “When I talk about protecting models, people laugh at me, as if to say, ‘What do models have to worry about?’ But we’re talking about some of the most vulnerable young women.” The glam façade of fashion—models enjoying 24-7 fabulosity, star-studded parties and “nonstop caviar and couture,” as Rocha puts it—can make it difficult to believe exploitation exists. “We often hear Linda Evangelista’s quote about models not getting out of bed for less than $10,000 a day,” she says. “But in general, most of the world’s models are insecure teenage girls, earning less than $30,000 a year and living and working in countries far from home.” “People think, How could you have problems when you’re so pretty and have beautiful clothes and handbags?” says Fox. “There’s this idea that nothing is bad for them, but there’s a secret darkness to the modelling industry that doesn’t show up in print." - rönin from Bookmarklet

How to get the FF bookmarklet working in Chrome again (thanks to user "sizofroid")
chromess.jpg
EDIT: Forget these steps, just go to http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... - Stephen Mack
1. In Chrome, open the page https://gist.githubusercontent.com/anonymo... 2. Copy the entire text from that page by hitting Ctrl+A and then Ctrl+C - Stephen Mack
3. Show your Chrome bookmarks by hitting Ctrl+Shift+B (if they're hidden) - Stephen Mack
4. Right-click on an empty area of Chrome's bookmark bar, then select "Add page..." from the shortcut menu. - Stephen Mack
5. Under "Name", put in whatever you want the button to appear as (such as "FF+" or "Share on FF"). - Stephen Mack
6. Under "URL", press Ctrl+V to paste in the text you just copied. - Stephen Mack
7. Click Save - Stephen Mack
8. Bookmark stuff. Happy FriendFeeding! - Stephen Mack
Credit to user "sizofroid" (http://friendfeed.com/sizofro...) due to his comment on a post from Amit Patel here: http://friendfeed.com/amitp... - Stephen Mack
I don't know if sizofroid fixed this code or not (since both the github repository here and the code it calls on Google Drive are anonymously contributed), but whoever wrote this and fixed it, THANK YOU! - Stephen Mack
Per sizofroid in that comment, this replacement bookmarklet works on Safari as well (but I haven't tested that). My instructions are from the perspective of a Windows Chrome user; if I need to modify any of these instructions for MacOS, please let me know. - Stephen Mack
I don't see anything dangerous in the code (https://googledrive.com/host...) but bear in mind that in theory whoever created this could change the code to be malicious in the future, and in theory possibly add a keyboard logger or blah blah blah so caveat emptor. - Stephen Mack
The code was written by Bret or Paul, no diff from, http://friendfeed.com/share.... It's literally just a rehost. My guess is the only thing that needed changed was http://friendfeed to https://friendfeed in the bookmarklet, as has been required for Firefox for 2 years. - NOT THE CRICKET
Just checked and there is a diff, at line 300 iframe.location has been changed to iframe.src (in the working version). - NOT THE CRICKET
Ah, I see -- thanks for checking, Jimminy. - Stephen Mack
Thanks VERY much all -- it works! Reposted to Quora friendfeeders: https://friendfeeders.quora.com/How-to-... TLDR for Firefox: go to your Bookmarks library, and manually edit the entry for the Friendfeed bookmarklet --change the part of the one-line javascript code from "http://friendfeed" to "https://friendfeed". - Adriano
Adriano, interestingly, just changing the http to https alone doesn't solve it for Chrome, it looks like the other change listed by Jimminy is needed to solve it on Firefox. - Stephen Mack
I backed up both the bookmark code and the bookmarklet code here: http://friendfeed.com/friendf... - Stephen Mack
Thank you, Stephen. \\ Also, the code for rendering embedded YouTube videos is not part of the bookmarklet. It's on the Friendfeed server side, so hopefully a kind FF engineer will fix the problem to work with the current YouTube API. - Adriano
Hmm, for YouTube, I just manually change the URL to http instead of https, and it usually works. - Stephen Mack
THANK YOU - lris
Mike Tyson does not work :( https://friendfeed.com/rsvp... so wondering what works consistently for YouTube. - Adriano
Youtube, has to be posted manually or while not logged in to google. Friendfeed's linkify on the backend only handles http:// links. Google forces https:// on all pages while logged in. - NOT THE CRICKET
Or you can just delete the pesky "s" before posting. - lris
Iris, when posting from the bookmarklet, it doesn't let you modify the URL. And Google will automatically redirect to the secure protocol, so you can't open the bookmarklet on a non-secure page. - NOT THE CRICKET
Ah, my bookmarklet has been kaput for so long I'd forgotten that. :) - lris
So being logged into Google has a hidden side effect, wow, thx. - Adriano
Asking from ignorance: does this work on Macs? - bentley
Adriano, well not all pages, just Google owned sites, like Youtube and stuff. It's pretty common to force logged-in users into using a secure protocol while logged-in as best practices. - NOT THE CRICKET
true, and for Quora pages one must manually append "?share=1" to URL for the benefit of non-Quora viewers. - Adriano
Betsy, it's not a machine problem, merely some bookmark code in the browser one uses. - Adriano
From what I can tell, the iframe.src is a recent Webkit change (effecting Chrome & Safari), and the protocol issue has been prevalent for all mainstream browsers for a few months, due to blocking Mixed Active Content (trying to access HTTP content on an HTTPS page [images get a pass, due to common caching systems]). - NOT THE CRICKET
This is great, thanks Stephen. I've posted an alternate hosting solution for those who want to use dropbox (or extrapolate the idea to other platform to self-host and control one's version of the code) http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... - Micah

ffbookmarklet - How to host your own code on Dropbox
The newly working Friendfeed ffbookmarklet solution came from Stephen ( http://friendfeed.com/friendf... ) via an anonymous code fixer. The following extends the solution so you can host and control your own version of the code on Dropbox. - Micah
1. Click ffbookmark.js attached to this post to download. - Micah
2. Move ffbookmark.js to a dropbox folder. - Micah
3. Right-click ffbookmark.js, "Share Dropbox Link" (link is now in your copy/paste memory). - Micah
4. Paste the link a text editor (Notepad, TextEdit, etc). - Micah
5. Hit enter key a few times for the next copy/paste—now copy the code block in the next comment and paste in editor: - Micah
javascript:void((function()%7Bvar e%3Ddocument.createElement(%27script%27)%3Be.setAttribute(%27type%27,%27text/javascript%27)%3Be.setAttribute(%27src%27,%27https%3A%2F%2Fdl.dropbox.com%2Fs%2F_______________%2Fffbookmark.js%27)%3Bdocument.body.appendChild(e)%7D)()) - Micah
6. Your link will look something like: https:// www.dropbox.com/s/kwfb2abcoyq46kx/ffbookmark.js - Micah
7. Copy the sequence of 15 letters that come after the "dropbox.com/s/" part of the url. - Micah
8. Replace the 15 underscores in the code block with the 15 letter you just copied. - Micah
9. Copy the new code block. Right-click bookmark bar button, click Edit, paste into URL: field. Save. - Micah
The attached ffbookmark.js is a minified version of ffbookmark.src.js (using Google's http://closure-compiler.appspot.com/home tool). It's almost 40% smaller than the uncompressed code. Using this alternate method, you're not dependent on the google drive doc in the original solution—it changing or disappearing. Neither of which likely, but there you go. - Micah
Enjoy. - Micah
+1 dedication - Adriano
Awesome - Stephen Mack from iPhone
thank you! - Pea Bukowski
You're welcome. We're all in this together. :) - Micah
Thank you, Internet Dad! - Kristin
*iHug* - Micah
yeah - Storvandre 4S
Thanks! if someone doesn't use dropbox (like me :D) but has github, you can create a gist, serve it through rawgit.com, urlencode the rawgit url (http://meyerweb.com/eric...), and substitute all the url, not only the underscores in the bookmarklet - scotu
this made me add a dropbox account to my long list of web accounts. - JECO Photo
Oops, there was a problem! > using bookmarklet with images. - JECO Photo
today FF won't load any kind of image, directly or via bookmarklet :( - Lucretia, my reflection ൠ
I just was able to post an image via the bookmarklet. Is it intermittent? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Seems like it's working again. - rönin
So I've been trying to use this, hosted on dropbox, and all I get is the blank bookmarklet in the upper right. That, and images are clickable to share via bookmarklet. But the text fields never show up. Any tips? - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew, you should probably try the latest version -- see http://friendfeed.com/ffhacks... - Stephen Mack
If you get stuck I can walk you through it tonight, Andrew. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
It was my fault, I installed an extension (Privacy Badger) and it blocked FF from non-FF sites. - Andrew C (✔)
Privacy Badger don't care! - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Micah, do I have your permission to host it on my site? That way we can make it a draggable link again. Draft here: http://www.zeigen.com/ff/ - Stephen Mack
Stephen, affirmative. Go for it. - Micah

5 Whys Folklore: The Truth Behind a Monumental Mystery | The Real Story of the Lincoln and Jefferson Memorials
"The 5-whys is a method of root cause analysis in which the the learner repeatedly asks, “why?” in order to drill down from higher-level symptoms to the underlying root cause(s) of a problem. So critical is this line of logic to lean thinking that Taiichi Ohno once described the method as “the basis of Toyota’s scientific approach . . . by repeating why five times, the nature of the problem as well as its solution becomes clear.” - rönin from Bookmarklet
"As any parent can attest, children are remarkably astute in their ability to repeatedly ask why when they wish to learn about their world.
