THINGS FROM TEH INTARWEB, #2

September 27, 2008

An almost immediate followup to the previous THINGS FROM TEH INTARWEB post.

The Greatest Roommate Story Ever – It really is.

Clairvoyance – if you don’t know who René Magritte is, look him up.

This is what we do with Wikipedia – or at least, what Gabe and Tycho do.

How Not to Talk to Your Kids – or why  not to tell them they’re smart.

Turning Bacteria Into Plastic Factories – Holy Crap. I hope this works.

And, to end on a light note again, A Craigslist Apology: To the Girl in the Parking Garage

I’m not sure how I feel about the wikipedia article about zebras

I’m really not. I think I’m getting old.

P.S.

I got a sunburn on my head. I feel betrayed by my hair.
The wikipedia article on sunburn is pretty comprehensive. You can get sunburned from welding apparently. Also, there’s a picture of a tree with sunburn.

Anteater

June 16, 2008

Today I insisted that Ari and I go to the zoo despite the fact that neither of us are 10.  We saw anteaters.  They looked like aliens.  Really, if you showed me an anteater, and I didn’t know anteaters existed, and you told me it was an alien, I might believe you.  Of course, if you just randomly showed me an anteater, that would mean you had this random anteater at your disposal, and I mean that would be pretty awesome.  I mean, my mom has a lot of cats, but I think anteaters pretty much beat out cats for being awesome.  Discussion question:  How many cats would you have to have for their collective awesomeness to equal the awesomeness of a single anteater?

 

Also, the wikipedia article on flamingos is not that great as far as I’m concerned.
