Things I Saw Today
A bald eagle and several hawks A train on a rusty metal bridge 3 feet above my head A broken, rusting streetlight and shopping cart (right next to each other) The same song playing on two different radio stations, at the same time
Pearls Before Breakfast.
bunnynico: When I was a junior in high school, my parents brought me to New York to visit some prospective colleges. My English teacher jokingly suggested that I bring my violin with me and play it in the subway to see what would happen. I thought about it some, and decided that I would do it. What the hell, I thought that it would be an interesting experience and something to share with the...
pile: I’ve noticed an interesting trend lately on my and my friends posts: more and more people I don’t know are reblogging. Tumblr is showing a classic social network growth spurt and beginning to pull in whole new circles of users. That’s a good thing for Tumblr, but it’s only good for me as long as I like what these new people are saying. In any successful social network you need to tools...
You will have to take a Kit-Kat Chunky.
Tell me, there are still no snickers?
No snickers Bwana.
And no twixes either?
No Bwana, no twixes. We only have Kit-Kat. And it's Kit-Kat Chunky. No four fingers.
So what am I to do?
You will have to take a Kit-Kat Chunky.
Okay, I will take it for a good price. How much?
But that is the same price as a Snickers.
We take the price of all the chocolate, and then each one is sold at an average. So you see-ee, all those times you have been buying Snickers, you have been buying them at a good price.
And now I'm buying a Kit-Kat Chunky at a bad price?
So not only am I disappointed with having to choose a Kit-Kat Chunky, I now also have to pay a bad price.
Now you know, each time that you bought a Snickers before, you should have been more happy.
Q: What do you call someone who lives in Dar es Salaam?
A: A salaami!

Instances of ‘violence’ that aren’t serious in nature, but basic and isolated,...– From a letter by the Tokyo citizens group “The Society to Seek Restoration of Sovereignty” to a Japanese politician who is promoting laws against wife beating. (via atheistramblings) That’s just wrong, and I don’t think this has to do with it being a different culture. Seems like a...
Awareness Test - CollegeHumor video My friend showed me this video, and I thought it was going to be bad… but it’s awesome.

An atheist's creed
asprettyasasong, atheistramblings, brigno:I believe in time, matter, and energy, which make up the whole of the world. I believe in reason, evidence and the human mind, the only tools we have; they are the product of natural forces in a majestic but impersonal universe, grander and richer than we can imagine, a source of endless opportunities for discovery. I believe in the power of doubt; I do...

What people do for cameras scares me: I’m watching people spend an hour in front of the computer with their teeth bared, doing weird faces… come on people, grow up.
I have the habit of clicking the link back to a person that gets reblogged, watching them, looking through their oldest posts, and reblogging one. I’ve done it a few times in the past week, all late at night. I guess it just goes to show- some things never get old.

bullshit: Many customers are buying one for each side of the bed.
Imagine that you submit something original to Tumblr, like a photo or video, that you’ve copyrighted, and then someone reblogs it. Is that copyright infringement, even if they give credit? Could you choose to disable reblogging to prevent this from happening, or is reblogging too important? What do you think?

Today's Wikipedia quest
topherchris: You ever have one of these? Where you look something up and you get engrossed in the topic and end up learning way more than you ever intended? I’m not talking about trying to kill time or just find random facts to stave off boredom, either. I’m talking a temporary total immersion in a specific area of knowledge. This happens to me a lot, and today’s version was about Game Theory....
