The 14 Habits of Highly Miserable People | Alternet
"Most of us claim we want to be happy—to have meaningful lives, enjoy ourselves, experience fulfillment, and share love and friendship with other people and maybe other species, like dogs, cats, birds, and whatnot. Strangely enough, however, some people act as if they just want to be miserable, and they succeed remarkably at inviting misery into their lives, even though they get little apparent benefit from it, since being miserable doesn’t help them find lovers and friends, get better jobs, make more money, or go on more interesting vacations. Why do they do this? After perusing the output of some of the finest brains in the therapy profession, I’ve come to the conclusion that misery is an art form, and the satisfaction people seem to find in it reflects the creative effort required to cultivate it. In other words, when your living conditions are stable, peaceful, and prosperous—no civil wars raging in your streets, no mass hunger, no epidemic disease, no vexation from poverty—making... more... - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

Buddhist Extremist Cell Vows To Unleash Tranquility On West | The Onion - America's Finest News Source
"WASHINGTON—In a 45-minute video posted on Tibetan websites Thursday, Tsuglag Rinpoche, leader of the Buddhist extremist group Kammaṭṭhāna, threatened to soon inflict a wave of peace and tranquility on the West. Speaking in front of a nondescript altar surrounded by candles, burning sticks of incense, and a small golden statue of the Buddha, Rinpoche did not specify when or where an assault of profound inner stillness would occur, but stated in no uncertain terms that the fundamentalist Buddhist cell plans to target all Western suffering. “In the name of the Great Teacher, we will stop at nothing to unleash a firestorm of empathy, compassion, and true selflessness upon the West,” said Rinpoche, adding that all enemies of a freely flowing, unfettered state of mind will be “besieged with pure, everlasting happiness.” “No city will be spared from spiritual harmony. We will bring about the end to all Western pain and anxiety, to all destructive cravings, to all greed, delusion, and... more... - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet
This was cuter a year ago, but even then... I guess the threat to the West is silly enough, though. - Eivind from Android
Still makes the point that if the World was full of atheists and Buddhists it would be a much happier place. - Son of Groucho
Well... not entirely true. Buddhists can be a pain as well: http://www.bbc.com/news... - rönin
And a lot of atheists are self admiring haters too. - ؛ patrick
I thought the "Buddhist bin Laden" front cover of Time would have put a dent in the myth. I guess they have some ways to go to catch up with the monotheisms, though. - Eivind from Android

Fast Frames: A Quick Guide to Bird Photography from Nikon
"Birds. They don't pose, they perch. Mostly they eat. Then they look for more to eat. They fly some, too. All of the above is from a photographer's perspective. Ornithologists will tell you a different tale, but here at Learn & Explore we have Matt McRay to talk about getting photos of members of the feathered community. Matt's images of birds appear to be rather casual, as if it were simply a matter of see the bird, photograph the bird. And in truth, some of his photos happen that way. But the majority are the result of knowledge of bird behavior and the planning and preparation that takes full advantage of that knowledge. Here's what we learned from The Matt McRay Method of Bird Photography:" - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

33 Sci-Fi Stories by Philip K. Dick as Free Audio Books & Free eBooks | Open Culture
"Although he died when he was only 53 years old, Philip K. Dick (1928 – 1982) published 44 novels and 121 short stories during his lifetime and solidified his position as the most literary of science fiction writers. His novel Ubik appears on TIME magazine’s list of the 100 best English-language novels, and Dick is the only science fiction writer to get honored in the prestigious Library of America series, a kind of pantheon of American literature. If you’re not intimately familiar with his novels, then you assuredly know major films based on Dick’s work – Blade Runner, Total Recall, A Scanner Darkly and Minority Report. Today, we bring you another way to get acquainted with his writing. We’re presenting a selection of Dick’s stories available for free on the web. Below we have culled together 33 short stories from our two collections, 600 Free eBooks for iPad, Kindle & Other Devices and 550 Free Audio Books: Download Great Books for Free. The stories, it appears, are all in the public domain." - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet
Yeah, as one comment suggests, about that "most literary of science fiction writers"... Maybe, maybe not. Some Gene Wolfe fans (just to name one) might argue with that... - Walt Crawford

"It was 2009 when Apple last released a new operating system on physical media. Things have proceeded remarkably smoothly since version 10.7 switched to download-only installers, but there are still good reasons to want an old, reliable USB stick. For instance, if you find yourself doing multiple installs, a USB drive may be faster than multiple downloads (especially if you use a USB 3.0 drive). Or maybe you need a recovery disk for older Macs that don't support the Internet Recovery feature. Whatever the reason, you're in luck, because it's not hard to make one." - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

Yeah, it's waaaaaay higher on my worries list for that exact reason. - Jennifer Dittrich
"Take, for example, measles. The virus is one of the most contagious diseases known to man. It's R0 sits around 18. That means each person with the measles spreads it to 18 people, on average, when nobody is vaccinated. (When everyone is vaccinated, the R0 drops to essentially zero for measles)." Thank god there's no one resisting vaccinations for children these days. - Ulrich von Liechtenstein

To my shame: Calling Occupants of Interplanetary Craft - The Carpenters. - Friar Will
Blondie - One Way or Another. Bought at the drug store in my grandma's town. I bought Doobie Brothers - Minute by Minute at the same time. I bought them solely on the way the label looked (MCA and WB). - Eric - Regulate
Sure. My first 45s were my mom and aunt's old 45s from the '50s. Including a Sun 45 of "Great Balls of Fire". First 45 I received as a gift was "Fly, Robin, Fly". First 45rpm I bought with my own $ was "Walking on Thin Ice" by Yoko Ono (I bought plenty of LPs before that...but I was 15 before I bought a 45.) - Spidra Webster

Wow, those WNBC era 45s must be quite the collection. - Eric - Regulate
"One Of My Turns" was the B-side to that PF single. yeah, there's some amazing stuff in his collection. also alot of his personal 78s in those boxes as well. too bad i no longer have a turntable that plays 78s! - Big Joe Silence
The first music I ever bought were two 45s. I Yam What I Yam by Robin Williams with He Needs Me by Shelly Duvall on the B side. Lady by Kenny Rogers. I bought them at Payless Drug Store. I must have been 6 years old. - Rodfather from Android
We have a whole bunch of them in the living room. I couldn't tell you what's on any of them. When I was kid? Damn...I know there was an EWF one. The hundreds of others? Never got to touch them. - Anika

The strangest one I own may be a European Hiphop group BVSMP - I Need You where the lyrics are split between the A side and B side. - Eric - Regulate
Half the 45s I bought were Doctor Who related, apparently. - bentley
Redbone "Come & Get Your Love" - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
So many 7 inches! It's the punk rock way. Or used to be anyhow. My first one? I think it was the Billy Idol Sweet Sixteen single? - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android

So many to choose from: Cut The Cake by AWB comes to mind. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
When i was a lil kid I used the 45 to listen to the Fairy Tales using this http://www.ildeposito.it/img... - Xabaras (G.O.)
Back in the mid 80s, we had a jukebox filled with 45s. Luckily for us, the local Sound Warehouse had 45s, so finding party music was never a problem. - Steven Perez
I still have about 15 of my 45s. First one that came to mind is Minnie Riperton - Here We Go. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

"Incense and Peppermints" by the Strawberry Alarm Clock was the first record I ever bought. I would have been 12. I can't remember what was on the flip side. - Ken Morley
I'm pretty sure the first 45 I got was "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" by Elton John and Kiki Dee in 1976. - Steele Lawman
Yes, Steele, that was the one we listened to incessantly. I also remember just where it developed a skip. Good times. - Mama Lawson

"Renowned photographer Sandro Miller has worked together with legendary Hollywood A-Lister John Malkovich many times, but when Miller wanted to celebrate the photography greats that had inspired and guided him, he had to do something special. So he, with Malkovich as his dashing unisex model, recreated some of those influential photographers’ most important portraits in a photo series called “Malkovich, Malkovich, Malkovich: Homage to photographic masters.” The series puts both Miller’s exceptional photography and Malkovich’s masterful acting talents front and center. Miller gets each amazing portrait’s lighting, mood and composition down perfectly, while Malkovich replicates the subject’s emotions and expressions so perfectly that the photos become nearly indistinguishable, regardless of the age or gender of the original subject. And it was all done without Photoshop!" - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet
