Bacon is good for me!

Ever since YouTube added the comment rating system, it’s been so much easier to find the diamonds in the rough piles of shit that are 99% of YouTube comments. And because of this I found the greatest quote ever, attached to this equally great video. Enjoy.

“He’s very articulate for a child and has a southern accent. And is fat.”

EDIT: OMFG there is a Facebook group




Got some hot nerd action from reddit:

* Getting rid of X
I’ve been trying to use more keyboard and less mouse, and this is a pretty interesting look at an extreme solution. I’m planning on trying out i3 instead of metacity as my WM in Ubuntu, but I haven’t found the time to play around with it. Work has been busy so maybe not for a while.

* DNA as seen by a computer programmer
Basically if you are a computer programmer interested in how humans work, this is a really interesting/exciting look at the building blocks that make up life.

* Nerve cells from skin cells
One of my friends works on figuring out how stem cells turn into a specific type of nerve cell. The idea that spinal cord injuries may someday be a thing of the past is pretty exciting.

* Drones could be grounded
Defective software means drones miss a lot, maybe into innocent people. WTG USA!

* People forget that Obama cut taxes
It’s funny to me that there is this myth of Obama as a socialist president. He’s pretty moderate to conservative all things considered. I guess the rest of America is basically borderline fascist and so a moderate looks radical in comparison.


PS If you love me, you will buy me this shirt.



Followup: Bros Icing Bros

On the heels of our own anonymous_banker’s expose of the Bros Icing Bros phenomenon, and the media firestorm that resulted.

One artist, however, has taken the bros icing bros to a heights of self-parody hither to unseen in this fad. Katie, of Sorry I Missed Your Party and Marina Abramovi? Made Me Cry, and incidentally my current e-crush, has recontextualized the latent homoeroticism of fraternal icing in a more explicit homosexual setting. I know I’ve found my sexuality challenged by this important work, even as my hetrosexuality is at the same time reinforced by the strong, beautiful artist herself.



Wacko Jacko Heart Attacko

Rest in peace brother, time for the ultimate dance party.

Does this mean we’re going to get our money back sooner? I hope so. I just have the sinking feeling that we’re going to be paying this shit back forever.
