"if they didn’t want their nudes leaked, they shouldn’t have taken nudes" makes about as much sense as "if you didn’t want to be robbed, you shouldn’t have bought that cool stuff" like?? for real??? are you serious lmao
Actually it’s more like, “If you didn’t want your cool stuff stolen, then you shouldn’t have let an overrated company with mediocre security protect it in what is essentially the worst neighborhood in the world.”
5 Random Things
Every Breath You Take
Hold your breath. Okay, now hold it for six months. Can you do it? Of course not! Then how do astronauts breath on the International Space Station? If you said plants, you’re wrong. If you said water, BINGO! The ISS has a machine (3 actually) that creates oxygen via water electrolysis. Electricity is sent through water, separating the Oxygen molecules from the Hydrogen. For now the Hydrogen is simply released into space, but future plans would have it be recycled back into the process. It’s all very technical, you wouldn’t understand.
I’m On The Edge Of Money…
Everyone knows there are 118 ridges around the side of a U.S. dime (right?), but why? First assumptions would consider they are for aiding the blind, but the original reason is a bit more interesting. In 1792, the Coinage Act stated which coins were to be made of what material, most being of gold or silver. It wasn’t long, however, before people started realizing they could shave off some of the valued metal around the edges before spending them. So the government added ridges so that any attempt at doing so would become obvious. Now, they just make cool marks on your knuckles when playing Quarters.
Sympathy For The Pebble
What’s the best mode of transportation? Probably Teleportation. But what’s the most interesting mode of transportation? How about rocks? Not possible? Then you’ve never heard of the Sailing Stones of Death Valley. These rocks—some of which weigh up to 600 pounds—have been known to travel across the flat, dry desert all by their lonesome. How? Until recently scientists had no idea. But recent studies have given answers. On the rare occurrence of rain, the wet ground freezes during nighttime temperatures creating a slick, muddy ground on which the boulders skate, moving up to 15 feet per minute. The result: The appearance of rocky snail trails to the tune of mystery and magic. And maybe aliens.
Cursing In The Name Of
You know what’s crazy? This S#*% has a name. No, I wasn’t cursing, although that’s what it is meant to represent. The symbols we use stringed together in place of curse words is known as a Grawlix. In 1964, cartoonist Mort Walker wrote an article called Let’s Get Down to Grawlixes for the National Cartoonist Society. It was the first use of the word, which he later defined, along with a myriad of other symboled terms, in his book The Lexicon of Comicana. Another example would be Agitrons—wiggly lines around a shaking object or character. It would also be a good name for the band. Steve, write that down.
Don’t Fear The Tree Sir
The tallest tree in the world is a coast redwood named Hyperion. It stands 379.7 feet tall. That’s not that exciting, is it? How about the tallest palm tree? The Wax Palm trees in the Valey Cocora valley of western Colombia reach as high as 164 feet in the air. Still not impressed? How about the largest TREE HOUSE! The Minister’s Tree House in Crossville, Tennessee is a 10-story tree house built from reclaimed wood by Horace Burgess after receiving a vision from God. But don’t plan your vacation just yet. The structure was closed by the Fire Marshall’s Office in 2012. Who would have thought a 100-foot building built of recycled wood by one man could pose a fire hazard? God, probably.

Q:You posted that Hozier song last night. I'd never heard of them before. I bought the song before I was even done listening to it here for free on tumblr. No harm no foul.
My point exactly!
She got kicked off Tumblr for posting some music, all of which I fell in love with and purchased. I just don’t get the sharing laws. It’s one thing to illegally download, but to…share? Music? And get other people, who will pay for it, turned on to it? My confusion knows no bounds.
I have gotten my “final warning” from Tumblr about the same thing. I’ve deleted everything I’ve posted and only left the reblogs, so we’ll see if that counts toward their ridiculous laws or not. It also seems like certain blogs get hit more often than others. I’m not sure if it’s because of certain songs or blog traffic. I get quite a few notes on a few of my gifs, so maybe that made me high profile or something. Either way, I’m prepared if my blog goes down. :)
Some Stuff from the Recently Departed (and returned)
- I was gone for a while because I had a friend in town visiting. We did a lot of touristy stuff I can’t afford, so now I will be sitting at home until Christmas.
- I’ve only recently discovered the joys of the Larry King Game. If you don’t know it, YouTube it. Start with Neil Patrick Harris and Chris Hardwick
- We went to a Japanese/Sushi restaurant last week and had, literally, the best server I’ve ever had at a restaurant. He kind of sounded like Seth Green when he spoke.
- I was talking to a guy from work about weight. I told him I have gained about 20 pounds since moving to Nevada. He then took a few moments to figure that out. 5 pounds/year at 3,500 calories/pound…basically he said that’s the equivalent of 11 extra calories a day. He has a degree in exercise science and used to be a personal trainer for rich people. He basically said that exercise is a terrible way of losing weight and that a better diet plan is the best way to go. 11 calories. That’s, like, 2 less M&Ms.
- I watched Cloud Atlas last night and, although I really wanted to like it, I can’t say that I did. I appreciate what they did, it just…meh.
- I shredded chicken using my Kitchen Aid for the first time tonight and I’m now mad at myself for not having done that for every time before. It’s like when I was a kid and used to say, “No Crazy Bread for me, thanks. The pizza will do just fine.” Past me was so stupid!
- September is going to be a busy month for me. I move at the beginning of the month into a new apartment, I have a test for work I have to take the following week, I go camping with my dad the weekend after that, may have jury duty somewhere in there, and may end up in jail by the end of it all if I don’t get this damn ticket taken care of.
- I know it’s not fall yet, but I’m already making soups and planning what kind of pumpkin stuff I can make.
Q:If you could only listen to 3 bands AND 3 songs (other hit singles) for the rest of your life, which would those be? Sorry for the sucky hypothetical situation.
Save your apologies for when you step on my new shoes.
If I could only listen to three bands then I’d want them to be bands I never get sick of, obviously. Foo Fighters would fall into that category. I’d also want bands with an eclectic array of music. Incubus works pretty well for that. I also need something with depth and a huge library of songs. The Beatles hit that nail on the head.
As for three hit singles…that’s a bit tougher. I would say Glycerine by Bush, India/Mountain Time by Joe Bonamassa, and…A Change Is Gonna Come by Sam Cooke. I could listen to those three songs every day with the same joy as the first.
Every Other Day
- Me: I can't make dinner yet, I'm not even hungry.
- Me (10 minutes later): I'm starving and I haven't even gone to the store yet! There's no time too cook, I must order out!
I was going to make this gif set, but didn’t have the time. I’m glad someone else did.
And douchy customers have no one to hear them bitching.
I bet the chewing sounds are ridiculously loud in there.
When you make a Flight Of The Navigator reference and no one gets it. :(
