Cowboy Joseph Randle Gets an Underwear Endorsement Deal for Stealing Underwear | Dallas Observer
"In a move that's a bit like Fiskars hiring Michael Irvin as a spokesman , MeUndies, a Los Angeles-based underwear company, is bringing on Cowboys backup running back Joseph Randle to sell $20 pairs of boxer briefs. Randle, who is making $495,000 this season, was arrested last Monday for absconding with $39.50 worth of Polo underwear and an $84 tester bottle of Gucci Guilty Black cologne from a Frisco Dillard's. Randle told police he took the items because he didn't want to take the time to pay, which is somehow both the dumbest and most sensible explanation for stealing something." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"MeUndies will help Randle defray the cost of the $29,500 -- one game check, the NFL max -- he was fined by the Cowboys after the incident. Dan King, MeUndies head of marketing, also tells ESPN that the company will provide Randle with enough underwear to last him for a long time. " - Jessie
"As part of the deal, Randle and MeUndies will donate $15,000 worth of stuff to kids who need it. Randle will also make appearances at local schools where he'll teach kids about how they can learn from their mistakes, presumably by getting endorsements for products involved in those mistakes." - Jessie
That last line there. ^^^ - Spidra Webster

Here's Why Facebook Never Created a 'Dislike' Button | Adweek
"In an interview with the creator of the Like button, former Facebook CTO Bret Taylor (who these days runs mobile app Quip), TechRadar reports that a Dislike button was often discussed but consistently scrapped because "the negativity of that button has a lot of unfortunate consequences." While the Like button was born largely to unclutter feeds riddled with positive one-word comments like "wow" and "cool," Taylor says, Facebook felt that it was actually better to corner the more negative users into leaving a comment explaining their opinions. "I have the feeling that if there were to be a 'Dislike' button is that you would end up with these really negative social aspects to it," Taylor says. "If you want to dislike something, you should probably write a comment, because there's probably a word for what you want to say."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Tourists allow boy to urinate in busy eatery - Taipei Times - http://www.taipeitimes.com/News...
"A family of Chinese tourists, who it is said came to Taiwan as part of a tour with a substantially higher price tag than is typical for tour groups from China, stunned staff and customers in the world-renowned Din Tai Fung dumpling restaurant by allowing a three-year-old boy to urinate in a bottle while the parents were eating at a table, the Chinese-language Apple Daily reported. The toddler was part of a family of five tourists dining in the Michelin-starred Din Tai Fung restaurant in Taipei 101 on Oct. 2, and urinated in a plastic bottle instead of going to a restroom that was 100m from where the family were eating. The urine splashed on food the family had bought, so they tried to get it replaced for free, but were rejected, the report said." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"The group eventually paid for a new round of dishes, but reportedly complained about the extra money they had to spend “while already paying that much for the tour.” It was said that the scene had dumbfounded customers at neighboring tables and the smell had lingered long enough to take away their appetite." - Jessie
"The incident was confirmed by the restaurant’s public relations manager, who said the area was cleaned and disinfected after the group had left the restaurant. The restaurant, the manager said, had also had an internal discussion over the case and resolved that in the future “[any similar behavior] would be stopped as soon as possible,” the report said." - Jessie

A highly destructive, invasive, mussel threatens Britain for first time
This is extremely worrying wildlife experts are warning. Quagga mussels have been described as 'ecosystem engineers' because their vast capacity to filter water upsets the natural balance throughout the food web. They eat some pollutants, but they turn it into concentrated toxic faeces which can poison drinking water for people and wildlife. - Halil from Bookmarklet
The Wildfowl & Wetland Trust’s head of conservation policy, Jeff Knott said: “This is a worrying, but entirely predictable, development that could be devastating to British wetlands. Quagga mussels are likely to indirectly cause suffering and death for hundreds of thousands of native animals, fish and plants and cost millions of pounds in tax and water bills to protect drinking water supplies. - Halil

This Suite of Fonts Was Made From the Handwriting of the Homeless | Adweek
Show all
"The Arrels Foundation in Barcelona has created Homelessfonts—typefaces based on the unique handwriting of the homeless people it helps. Each font comes with the story of the person who penned it and their personality. After all, few things are more personal than our handwriting. The work not only helps fund the foundation, it humanizes the homeless and lets people see them as unique individuals, not as an amorphous problem. The video about the process is moving, but moreover, the fonts are actually good. The glyphs were captured with fat Sharpies on poster board and then transformed by volunteer typographers." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"If you are a typographer, you can donate your time and expertise to help create more fonts. If you just like the concept, you can download a free app to use the fonts in social media (be a nice person and make a donation, too). And if you're a brand, you can purchase the fonts and the stories that come with them for professional use at surprisingly affordable prices. Samples of the... more... - Jessie

My grandfather passed away 20 years ago this November. At his wake, my family had blown up a bunch of pictures of him to display, and there was one picture from when he was in his 20s that looked EXACTLY like me. My grandmother walked up to me and said, "It's amazing, isn't it? And now you know what you will look like when you're dead, too!"
She also pranked the funeral home director: "WHAT DO YOU MEAN YOU EMBALMED HIM? I DIDN'T WANT HIM EMBALMED? Just kidding!" - Zamms
You have quite the grandmother! - lris
Yeah, she's pretty fantastic. When she turned 80 she told everyone she reached the age of integrity so she could now say exactly what she thought about everything. I never noticed the difference. - Zamms

This Video About Dropping a Brick Is Worth a Few Laughs and 67 Million Gallons of Water | Adweek
"If you're going to drop an upper-decker, you might as well help fight a drought in the process. "Drop A Brick" is a nonprofit Indiegogo project created by a partnership of several California businesses, including San Francisco agency BarrettSF that encourages you to buy an eco-friendly rubber brick filled with hydro-gel that expands 200 times its size when water is added. Putting the brick in the top tank will displace half a gallon of water, saving about 50 gallons a week for a family of four. If every Californian dropped a brick, the initiative says, it would save 67 million gallons of water a day." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
" The crowdfunding video is basically one big poop joke, but it's surprisingly amusing and has been getting quite a bit of passaround. Still, organizers say they'd like to see more bricks being ordered to help alleviate California's crippling drought as soon as possible. So check out the video and explainer photos below, then go see about dropping a fat one in the tank. No need for a courtesy flush.'" - Jessie

"Yelp reviewers have a knack for making everything about them, and potentially ruining businesses because they woke up on the wrong side of bed. Some places have gotten so cynical about these "critics" that they've even asked people to post bad reviews on purpose. But what about America's most pristine natural landscapes? Surely Yelp reviewers can unite in their appreciation of such beauty. What about the purple mountain majesties? The friggin' amber waves of grain? What about the flipping fruited plains, America? Sorry, people will hate on all that, too. Mashable recently combed Yelp for negative reviews of the national parks by people who clearly don't like nice things and would be much happier on their couch watching reality television. The results are hilarious. And completely depressing." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

"... The above quote, captured by The Escapist, is perfect troll logic, as pure a distillate as you'll find of the 4chan hivemind. There are notes here, too, from a hymn book that predates the internet: self-pity, self-martyrdom, an overwhelming sense of your own blamelessness, the certainty that someone else's victimhood is nothing more than a profitable pose. All culture wars strike these same chords, because all culture wars are at bottom about the same thing: the desperate efforts of the privileged, in an ever-pluralizing America, to cling by their nails to the perquisites of what they'd thought was once their exclusive domain. ..." - WarLord

My wife can barely speak at all, due to the tumor. (to communicate we ask questions and she nods) I have noticed in the early mornings she says a few words. I made a short video and emailed it to her daughter, saying thank you and love you. only 5 words, but the video made her day.
You are a good guy, Mike. These days are precious and it takes a huge heart to share them. You are amazing. - Shannon - GlassMistress
