The Apple iP-D product line
iPad - Unveiled January 2010. The iPad promises to revolutionize the way people snipe about browser standards and whether Flash is an abomination or just banal. iPed - In development. Apple looks to revolutionize the way people walk. To crass observers, it will appear to be merely an overpriced pedometer. To the cognoscenti, it is the most ergonomic pedometer ever and makes walking as easy as...
I think Mary gave Lucky the *HOOK*
I'm sad to have to accept this but it's true....
piscesinpurple: When I was in fifth grade my teacher told me I looked Winona Ryder. Square Dance had just come out. In that movie she wore glasses. Freshman year the guys on my floor called me “Kennedy”. The MTV VJ? Yeah. I had glasses just like hers and also I was obnoxious. (What’s the opposite of shocked?) After college, a few years post-Titanic, I got Kate Winslet. This was Hideous...

figuring out this malaria thing
beeborg: OKAY BRAIN. let’s do this. A mosquito takes a blood meal from a human —> infects the human with a tiny spindle of malaria called sporozoites —> these guys wiggle to the liver, burrow in the liver cells and start rounding up into a ball called trophozoite —> this trophozoite undergoes nuclear division into thousands of new nuclei called schizont —> a membrane forms around...
What would you want to do with an iPad?
redcloud: Just in case you knew someone who might be able to write apps for one…. I’m starting to have ideas, myself. I’d want to sit in my big-ass chair while a miniskirt-clad Yeoman brought it up to me for my digital signature.

crookedindifference: i had dinner with a few friends last night after a late night at the office. one of them was a friend of mine that was, quite possibly, the most positive person that i have ever met. at least id give her that distinction after last night. she didnt strike me as that positive from before but it definitely stood out during dinner. it was nice to be around someone like that. it...

(via love-and-radiation) Of all the things I think Dune is, Christian isn’t really one of them. Islam and Jewish mysticism are the dominant religious movements.

I went on a run today at lunch!
pocketcontents: peachcherub: The first run I’ve been on in more than 3 months! Well, not so much a run as a jog. Soft j…a y sound…really more of a yog. I went yogging at lunch. But I feel great! Though you might get a different report if you ask me tomorrow…. I cannot abide jogging, but yogging sounds like something I could support. Good on you. I’m still recovering from those Jillian...

The 37th President of the United States was hysterical. Crumpled in a leather chair in the Lincoln Sitting Room, his favorite of the 132-rooms at his disposal in the White House, Richard Milhous Nixon called for his Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger. Nixon was drinking, Nixon was exhausted, Nixon was physically and mentally unwell and, hours earlier, Nixon had finally realized that he had no...
It's Interesting Who Follows Me
dielaughing: But it’s more interesting when I attend a tweet up to find that most of the people DON’T follow me. I guess they saw me once on Favrd a long time ago, but otherwise I’m just another douche bag on the internets. Sigh. It’s my angry tweets, isn’t it? I should only make jokes like @badbanana and never @ reply anyone, ever. Yup. Seems like a winning strategy. I hope I win the internet...

reagank: azspot: EARLIER THIS WINTER, I met an investment banker who was diagnosed with a brain tumor five years ago. He’s a managing director at a top Wall Street firm, and I was put in touch with him through a colleague who knew I was writing a story about the potential dangers of cell-phone radiation. He agreed to talk with me only if his name wasn’t used, so I’ll call him Jim. He...
