People seem to have displaced sense of priority. I'm not going to be all, look what we've done, but seriously. Self promoters, are well, self-promoters. You might want to think about the people who have really done the stuff.
We don't talk about it online. - Cristo
We do it because we want to change the world. - Cristo
Not have people tell us we're great. - Cristo
The people you see, are not the real people that are important. And I'm not talking about me. - Cristo

I am debugging fucking cookie session code so that people can login to the awesome fucking experience that blows all this shit away, but it doesn't work because the session cookies are not getting deleted. Does Techcrunch care about that? No. They are too busy saying the latest stupid app that allows you to send naked pictures between high school students has experienced a delay. Seriously? Is this what we should be paying attention to? - Cristo
Keep chipping away at the cookies. You've got your work cut out by the sounds of it. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
It makes me throwup a little bit to think I have to cater to these wankers eventually. And who knows, maybe you guys will hate what we do. But it will fucking blow everything that you think of as the Internet away. I just can't write the code fast enough. And I've got the track record to prove it. - Cristo
Not being a jerk. I'm not saying I'm great. Just that I'm so disappointed with where things are now, and I've been working on this shit for 25 years. You guys know what I've done. And I'm done fucking around. - Cristo
You will do it, and when it's ready, we'll all be there. If you need help, you know where to find it. If you need a sounding board or a rant, you're covered. Most of all, just keep going. It'll happen. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

We partially settled my parents' estate last week. There wasn't a great amount of money, but I didn't want it all to sort of disappear into bills, vacation, and so forth, so I spent a goodly chunk on a really nice watch; something that I hope will become a sort of heirloom.

Women Murdering Men In Western Art History
"ON WEDNESDAYS WE PULL OUR DRESSES DOWN TO THE WAIST AND KILL MEN" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"One of the greatest aspects of ancient Greek civilization was the persistent belief that there was nothing women liked better to do than assemble a gang, air their tits out, and roam the countryside beating men to death. This was, sadly, a myth, but it did not stop generations of European painters from imagining what savage bands of female murderesses might have looked like." - Now people just think this is something feminists do :| - Soup in a TARDIS

Apple's New China Store Has One Hell of a Beautiful Facade and a Great Story to Tell | Adweek - http://www.adweek.com/adfreak...
Apple's New China Store Has One Hell of a Beautiful Facade and a Great Story to Tell | Adweek
"The new Apple Store in China unites ancient and contemporary design elements to striking effect—its modern steel-and-glass exterior draped by a simple yet elegant mural that contains the text, rendered in traditional Chinese characters, of a 2,000-year-old poem. "The lines in calligraphy need to have life in them," artist Wang Dongling says of his creation in the new two-minute Apple video below. "They need to have aesthetic feeling. They need to have a kind of magical energy endowed by nature." Sounds like something Steve Jobs or Jony Ive might have said about the look and feel of Apple's products. So, Wang's vision seems well suited to the iconic brand, which opens its newest store tomorrow in Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang Province in Eastern China, situated on West Lake." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Despite its vintage, the poem, "Praising West Lake in the Rain," has a distinctly modern flavor: "Shimmering water on sunny days/Blurred mountains through rainy haze/West Lake is like the beauty, Xizi/With light or heavy makeup, always beautiful."" - Jessie
"/West Lake is like the beauty, Xizi" I think that's supposed to be Xisi. Can anyone tell me who wrote this poem? I can't read handwritten script. - Jessie
I keep finding references to the poem's extreme age, but nothing about the author. Given the time, perhaps the author is unknown? - Soup in a TARDIS
My coworker came to the rescue! She says the author is 蘇軾(蘇東坡) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki.... So the poem must only be about 1,000 years old. She says this is the full text: 水光瀲灧晴方好 / 山色空濛雨亦奇 / 欲把西湖比西子 / 淡妝濃抹總相宜 - Jessie
She says the Chinese title is 飲湖上初雨後晴, something like "Drinking on the lake in the rain" (my own translation, not hers) - Jessie

How Fashion Helped Defeat 18th-Century Anti-Vaxxers - The Atlantic
"In 18th-century Europe, smallpox was a scourge feared by kings and commoners alike. It was highly contagious, grossly disfiguring, and often fatal. But it was also preventable. Smallpox inoculation—which by then was the norm across Asia and the Middle East—was introduced in the West by Lady Mary Wortley Montagu. Herself a smallpox survivor, the English ambassadress to Turkey had witnessed the practice in Constantinople, and upon her return to England in 1718 she became its biggest advocate. Initially, London society found the practice shocking, but by the end of the century, inoculation had been adopted throughout most of Europe. France was one of the last holdouts. Though inoculation was common in northern Europe by the early 1770s, it was still regarded with suspicion in France, and with good reason: Improperly performed, it could result in infection and even death." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"On May 10, 1774, King Louis XV died after a two-week illness—an inexorable, excruciating, and very public demise. We rarely hear about the 10 other courtiers and palace servants who died during the same outbreak. But the new king, Louis XVI, was sufficiently alarmed that he took the controversial step of submitting to inoculation on June 18, 1774. His two younger brothers, the Comte de... more... - Jessie
"The milliners of Paris, attuned to current events that could be translated into quick profits, commemorated the momentous event with an allegorical headdress dubbed the pouf à l’inoculation. Perched atop a woman’s powdered and pomaded coiffure, it depicted the serpent of Asclepius, representing medicine; a club, representing conquest; a rising sun, representing the king; and a... more... - Jessie
"Crucially, the pouf à l’inoculation wasn't an explicit critique of the 18th-century anti-vaxxers, but simply a visible expression of support for inoculation. Instead of picking a fight, it presented inoculation as something normal and harmless. And because the pouf was worn by the fashionable elite of society, it went one step further, making inoculation look not just normal, but also cool." - Jessie

Re-introducing wolves to Ireland: could we? Should we? - Ireland's Wildlife - http://www.irelandswildlife.com/grey-wo...
Re-introducing wolves to Ireland: could we? Should we? - Ireland's Wildlife
"The grey wolf, Canis lupis, was once reasonably common in Ireland and existed on all parts of the Island. The last wolf in Ireland was probably killed in or around 1786 but small populations or individual wolves may have existed into the early 1800’s. Before English rule in the country wolves were hunted, mainly by the ruling classes, and plenty of wolf skins were exported to Britain, but there seems to have been no coordinated attempt to exterminate them. During English rule this changed, and people began to view wolves as a troublesome species and targeted them for extermination. During Cromwell’s rule bounties for wolves were initiated and so began the complete removal of the wolf from the Irish landscape. The wolf itself was once one of the most common land based mammals on the planet, and existed in the whole of the Northern hemisphere and on the Indian subcontinent. Sub species also existed in parts of Africa and South America. As human populations across Europe grew the wolf... more... - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Fast forward nearly a century to 2015, and talk of re-introducing wolves to Ireland. I’ve heard plenty of people arguing for re-introduction, or supporting it, but there are many complex issues that need to be considered before a re-introduction could even be considered. Many people consider wolves the epitome of true wilderness. Perhaps a pang of guilt for our role in their... more... - Jessie
"The most important aspect in all this discussion needs to be the welfare of the wolves themselves. Wolves for re-introduction here in Ireland would be sourced from multiple populations to give an initial genetic diversity. More wolves would possibly need to be added later to maintain this genetic diversity and prevent inbreeding, although wolves often disperse to avoid this. Even if... more... - Jessie

Republican SOTU responses get lost in translation | MSNBC - http://www.msnbc.com/rachel-...
"If Republican officials had said the two lawmakers intended to give different speeches, this might be less of an issue, but they actually said the opposite. Indeed, House Republicans specifically told reporters, in writing, that Curbelo would deliver “the Spanish-Language translated address of Sen. Joni Ernst response.” He’d have to change personal details such as his own name, but otherwise, it was supposed to be the same speech. Ernst, however, never mentioned immigration at all, while Curbelo devoted a paragraph to the issue. An English-speaking audience heard Republicans overlook immigration, while a Spanish-speaking audience was led to believe GOP lawmakers actually want to pass immigration reform. (They don’t.)" - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"If this trick sounds vaguely familiar, it’s because we’ve seen the GOP try it before. About three years ago, we learned that Sen. Dean Heller (R) of Nevada created a campaign website with a separate, Spanish-language version. On the English-language version, the Republican condemned “amnesty” and “illegal immigrants,” while on the Spanish-language version, Heller conveniently forgot to include the same message." - Andrew C (✔)
It's like Republicans think that not many people know both English and Spanish well enough to notice the difference. - John (bird whisperer)

Scientists upload a worm's mind into a Lego robot - CNN.com
"A humble roundworm is leading the race in artificial intelligence, showing that it may be possible one day to upload our brains to a computer. Called the Open Worm Project, the research brings together scientists and programmers from around the world with the aim of recreating the behavior of the common roundworm (Caenorhabditis elegans) in a machine. The open source project recently had its first major breakthrough when its software -- modeled on the neurons of the worm's nervous system -- independently controlled a Lego robot. The machine's sensors, without any prior programming, made the robot behave in a similar fashion to C. elegans, approaching and backing away from obstacles or stimulated by food." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
"With the worm's nose neurons replaced by a sonar sensor and the motor neurons running down both sides of the worm replicated on the left and right motors of the Lego bot, the robot could emulate the worm's biological wiring." - Steve C Team Marina

Could Kool-Aid Man Really Bust Through a Brick Wall? Science Finally Has an Answer | Adweek
"In short, the answer is: Yes, Kool-Aid man could, though he probably wouldn't feel too great afterwards. It turns out that scaling an ordinary pitcher up to six feet, then filling it with the correct amount of Kool-Aid would make Kool-Aid Man an 11,000-pound elephant-size beast with glass at least 3.6 inches thick. Even a creature made of ordinary glass would be able to break through a brick wall at that size by getting up to a run, but we don't actually know what kind of glass Kool-Aid Man is made from. Heck, he could be made from Pyrex. Nonetheless, the video explores how laminated glass (the bullet-proof stuff) would help him survive the inevitable surface cracks from his wall-breaking feats, but it doesn't cover fully tempered glass, heat-strengthened material or any of the many other glass varieties. Certainly, there's a materials scientist out there who could, with enough zeal, create the proper thickness, tempering and coating combination that would let Kool-Aid man break through more than just one wall." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release --  draggable version
Having trouble with the FF Bookmarklet in Chrome or other browsers? This is an updated version thanks to Micah and sizofroid. To make it easier to install, I'm now hosting it at my site, so you don't have to jump through hoops, you can just drag the updated version to your bookmark bar. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Yay! [update: uh, I don't see the actual bookmarklet on that page] - lris
Hmm, what browser are you using, Iris? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Chrome, Mac. Here's what I see http://screencast.com/t... - lris
Well that's weird. Chrome on Windows is working for me. When you go to the FF tools page, is the button there visible for you? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes it is - lris
Iris, have you disabled JavaScript by chance? I had a coworker test with Chrome on his Mac and it was working for him. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. And I did have adblocker running but I disabled it for that site. - lris
I love you. - Melly
I love you too, Melly! - Stephen Mack
Iris, hold on, gonna try something to fix it. - Stephen Mack
I'm running Chrome on Windows if that helps, FYI. - Melly
Iris, I changed how the image for the button was hosted. Did that fix it for you? - Stephen Mack
Yay! I see it! - lris
Yay! Hmm, you must have some pretty high levels of security set. All I changed was copying the image for the button from FF's server to mine. - Stephen Mack
I am not aware of extra high levels of security. Maybe I'm accidentally extremely careful. :) - lris
I'm sure it's no accident. :) - Stephen Mack
Hopefully no one else is having any trouble? - Stephen Mack
I added the older versions at the bottom, just in case there are any compatibility issues. - Stephen Mack
When I saw "draggable" I first thought it meant the popup can be dragged around within the page, to make it easier to select images that it would ordinarily be covering up...like this old one: http://pastebin.ca/1323845 I am still using that one, but installed as a dedicated CustomButton. If you have the Firefox add-on installed, it's easy to install the button from here: http://appsapps.info/ff... What I would like to have is a combo of all the goodies into one awesome button. - April Russo
April, that's a cool idea. I couldn't get the one you linked to work for me, though. I wonder if we can beg Micah to add that functionality into his version. - Stephen Mack
I just did. ;) - April Russo
Ah! I don't know about CustomButton, though. What is taht? - Stephen Mack
Which one could you not get to work? The 1st or 2nd link? The 1st is instructions for modifying the official bookmarklet to use the drag & drop popup. The 2nd link requires the CustomButtons add-on installed in Firefox. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... You'd just click the link on my page to install the button, then right click a Firefox toolbar, go to... more... - April Russo
2nd link. But I see what you mean, it requires the add-on. Does it work on Chrome or IE, or just Firefox? - Stephen Mack
Compatibility: Mozilla Firefox 1.5+ SeaMonkey 2.0+ Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0+ Mozilla Sunbird 0.8-0.9 / Calendar 1.0pre KompoZer 0.8b1-0.8b3 Flock 0.7-1.5+ and Pale Moon (which is what I am using) - April Russo
Bump due to recent discussion. Micah, it'd be great to incorporate that feature from April's. Heard that at least one user is having trouble with the new bookmarklet. How's it working for others? (Works great for me! My default browser is Chrome.) - Stephen Mack
Working with Chrome, I'd say it works about 95% of the time really well. There are a couple sites where it just doesn't want to pull in the images, and sometimes the NY Times is tweaky, but both seem related to recent layout changes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Mine still doesn't work. I wonder if one of my plugins is breaking it. I've taken to browsing in Chrome and copying the URL over to IE when I want to post something to FF. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It doesn't work for me: in Firefox (my default browser) it just brings up an empty box. As DB said, it might be a conflict with an extension, but I'm not sure which would be causing it. - John (bird whisperer)
First off, thank you for this work. I'll test it out in a bit. I have a lot of browsers to test in, and I use XMARKS so it should just pop to all my different browsers. - Eric - ill subliminal
