It's like a contact high. - Todd Hoff
I've DVR'ed all the episodes, but still haven't watched them. - Nils Sandin

Nope. - Sean McBride
I'm watching it as the DVD sets come out. So, yes and no. - Betsy
Never watched it. - Tamara J. B.
I am watching Bates Motel -- because Vera Farmiga is a pip. - Sean McBride
We haven't watched either. I bought the first book in the series last year, but didn't get very far with it. - Greg GuitarBuster
ha! I thought I was alone on my "not watching" island. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
It. Is. So. Good. - Brian Fitzpatrick
I do not watch this series. - Janet from FFHound!
I haven't watched it yet. OTOH, I finally got around to watching a few seasons of The Wire. If watching Game of Thrones still seems like a good idea in 10 years, I guess I'll watch it. - Larry Hosken
Nope. - Louis Gray
Nope. Only saw the first episode or two that were shown on broadcast tv. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

KBS has banned the song because it has a Japanese word. https://friendfeed.com/fabooma... Of course, KBS may have issues with the group. Japanese words are used on their dramas, with no problems. - Anika
That's... pretty dumb. - ronin
The strangest thing, to me, is that the Korean gov't spends an inordinate amount of time trying to erase Japanese from the airwaves. Even Japanese foods are given Korean names. Meanwhile, the gov't spends an inordinate amount of money promoting Korean to the Japanese. These idol groups put out Japanese records & some are even hosts or actors on Japanese TV shows. - Anika

RT @googlefacts: Pineberries, a cross between pineapples and strawberries. Looks like a strawberry, tastes like pineapple! http://t.co/eT4PREOo3l
This is possible? - ronin
It's not a cross between those. It's a white strawberry and yes that's possible. There are white alpine strawberries. I suppose that's where they got the "pine" from. Pineapples are Bromeliads and strawberries are Rose family. Furthermore, pineapples are monocots and strawberries are dicots. I hate that agribusiness, in a bid to pump up the market for their product, will choose a BS... more... - Spidra Webster

US Navy 'game-changer': converting seawater into fuel - Yahoo News
"The US Navy believes it has finally worked out the solution to a problem that has intrigued scientists for decades: how to take seawater and use it as fuel. The development of a liquid hydrocarbon fuel is being hailed as "a game-changer" because it would significantly shorten the supply chain, a weak link that makes any force easier to attack." - ronin from Bookmarklet

The 'absurd distance' thing cracks me up, because it is partially true - I won't mock someone who doesn't want to drive that long, but I will grouse if it takes longer to get somewhere a good distance away because of undue traffic. - Jennifer Dittrich

How politics makes us stupid - Vox
I believe this study was reported on before but I rather like this new Vox site. "Presented with this problem a funny thing happened: how good subjects were at math stopped predicting how well they did on the test. Now it was ideology that drove the answers. Liberals were extremely good at solving the problem when doing so proved that gun-control legislation reduced crime. But when presented with the version of the problem that suggested gun control had failed, their math skills stopped mattering. They tended to get the problem wrong no matter how good they were at math. Conservatives exhibited the same pattern — just in reverse." - ronin from Bookmarklet
"It turned out that people’s actual definition of "expert" is "a credentialed person who agrees with me." - ronin
"Kahan is quick to note that, most of the time, people are perfectly capable of being convinced by the best evidence. There’s a lot of disagreement about climate change and gun control, for instance, but almost none over whether antibiotics work, or whether the H1N1 flu is a problem, or whether heavy drinking impairs people’s ability to drive. Rather, our reasoning becomes rationalizing... more... - ronin

Caught Spying on Student, FBI Demands GPS Tracker Back | Threat Level | WIRED
"A California student got a visit from the FBI this week after he found a secret GPS tracking device on his car, and a friend posted photos of it online. The post prompted wide speculation about whether the device was real, whether the young Arab-American was being targeted in a terrorism investigation and what the authorities would do. It took just 48 hours to find out: The device was real, the student was being secretly tracked and the FBI wanted its expensive device back, the student told Wired.com in an interview Wednesday." - ronin from Bookmarklet

Japan's Biggest Organized Crime Syndicate Now Has Its Own Web Site and Theme Song | VICE News - http://news.vice.com/article...
Japan's Biggest Organized Crime Syndicate Now Has Its Own Web Site and Theme Song | VICE News
"Japan’s largest organized crime group, the Yamaguchi-gumi, recently launched its own website. But if you're hoping to see guys with crazy tattoos, dramatic gun battles, bloody sword fights, and fingers being chopped off — and who isn't? — it may disappoint. For starters, the site looks like it was created in the late 1990s. Still, the criminal syndicate is hoping it'll serve as a recruitment tool as the membership of yakuza organizations shrink and public support for them falls. And the branding reflects this; the site at first appears to be for an organization known as the Banish Drugs and Purify The Nation League — or Drug Expulsion of Land Purification Alliance, as Google translates it. The "purify the nation" thing is potentially unsettling, but it still doesn't sound like a criminal organization." - ronin from Bookmarklet
I guess it shouldn't be surprising that their theme song is very enka. Would've been awesome if it was more Japanese Chicano rap. ;-p - ronin
My parents sang Enka. - Rodfather

Miss being able to select a portion of a photo and add a comment to it in Flickr.

Facebook Users Save 3-Year-Old's Sight After Spotting Rare Eye Disease In Photo
"A picture is indeed worth a thousand words — and a medical diagnosis. Tennessee mother Tara Taylor posted a photo of her 3-year-old daughter Rylee after she fixed her own hair like a princess, but what caught Facebook users’ attention was the child’s eyes. Rylee’s left eye had an unusual glow, which prompted Taylor's Facebook friends to give life-changing advice: Go to a pediatrician." - ronin from Bookmarklet
Would never be caught in photos of my kids cause I avoid direct flash like the plague. =p - ronin
Wow, I never would have caught that. - Eric - Watch Me Now from iPhone
IIRC, there was another child whose eye problem was diagnosed via Facebook photo a couple of years ago. - Betsy from FFHound(roid)!

How one family went through a tech detox and live like it’s 1986 - The Globe and Mail
"It’s a social experiment. With mullets. Blair McMillan and his girlfriend, Morgan Patey , turned back the clock to 1986 – the year of their births – banning all modern technology from their home for a year. The Guelph, Ont., parents embarked on the tech-free challenge last April after their older son, Trey, 5, got hooked on their iPad . Trey had also developed the slightly unsettling habit of identifying aunts and uncles by their brand of smartphones." - ronin from Bookmarklet

The Island Where People Forget to Die - NYTimes.com
"“Do you know there’s no word in Greek for privacy?” she declared. “When everyone knows everyone else’s business, you get a feeling of connection and security. The lack of privacy is actually good, because it puts a check on people who don’t want to be caught or who do something to embarrass their family. If your kids misbehave, your neighbor has no problem disciplining them. There is less crime, not because of good policing, but because of the risk of shaming the family. You asked me about food, and yes, we do eat better here than in America. But it’s more about how we eat. Even if it’s your lunch break from work, you relax and enjoy your meal. You enjoy the company of whoever you are with. Food here is always enjoyed in combination with conversation.”" - ronin from Bookmarklet
"The big aha for me, having studied populations of the long-lived for nearly a decade, is how the factors that encourage longevity reinforce one another over the long term.
