Indexed - Taking Offense Can be a Competitive Sport

A perfectly illustrated relation between a sense of humor and drama. #

2010.04.08 swissmiss - A Blog...

A blog is a a broadcast, not a publication. If it stops moving, it dies. - Andrew Sullivan. Personally, I've let more than one die. <sigh> #

2009.12.17 Menu Mind Games - New York Magazine

Menu Mind Games - New York Magazine

A highlight article about an upcoming book that dissects marketing built into menus. I'd love to read something like this, but more in line with web design, and marketing products or services there. Fascinating, nonetheless. Apparently I need to arrange stuff better. #

2009.11.09 Re-evaluating John Brown's Raid at Harpers Ferry

I'm not entirely sure why I feel compelled to read this, but I could stand to read something like this right about now. #

2009.09.22 Rickenbacker Guitar Factory Tour - (NOTCOT)

A fascinating look into the factory that makes the same classic guitar The Beatles used. Don't miss parts 2 and 3 of the tour. #

2009.09.18 The secret of school success - USATODAY.com

Master yourself and you'll master school as well. Understand the rewards of sacrifices, get your desires and emotions in check and you'll do better. Sent to me by my mother. (goes perfectly with the video I posted as well) #

2009.09.18 Oh, The Temptation - Vimeo

A charming video showing some kids given a choice: eat this one marshmallow, or leave it alone while I step out of the room, and if you don't eat it while I'm gone, you get a second one. Couldn't have been better timed thanks to the article I just linked to#

2009.09.10 RageHaus - DIY Wooden Wax Seal

RageHaus - DIY Wooden Wax Seal

How freaking cool is this? Really simple instructions on how to make your own old school wooden wax seal. I would imagine this would be a rarity to use, but still would be pretty cool to have (like an embosser). #

2009.08.31 Driven to Distraction - NYTimes.com

Utah now penalizes a texting driver who causes a fatality as harshly as a drunken driver who kills someone. Since I live in the state and know some people who lost their son (who was on his way home from his son's soccer game, sitting at a stoplight and got rear-ended) to a teenager who was texting and driving, I find this especially applicable. Full-blown negligence. #

2009.05.31 Instructables - Electrolytic Rust Removal

A fairly straight-forward way to remove rust from items. I have a couple things I'd like to try this out on, since it sounds plausible. I'd say I'm bookmarking this more for future reference, as opposed to thinking it's a really cool read. #
