I gotta admit, when the guy at 3:39 stood there, a basketball hoop in the background, a basketball between his feet, and knowing that I was watching “trampoline fails” I was positively giddy with anticipation. To say the result was a disappointment is an understatement.
I mean, to be fair, would you be really able to tell the difference between his broken teeth and not? #britishjokes
The days are long and hot in the hashtag failarmy. There have been over three dozen motorcross accidents this week, and I fear that I will soon become desensitized to the horror. Our rations of Doritos Sweet Chili are running low. I long for your embrace.
I like the two reactions shared by the camera people: Either hysterical laughter or a sharp intake of breath and sound of concern. Oddly, there is little correlation between the reaction and the perceived severity of injury.
They’re just jealous of their air force ones.
My parents like to tell the story of when I was old enough to start eating solid food, so like 6-8 months old? Does that seems right? Anyway, my family and my grandparents go to an ice cream shop. My grandfather is holding me in one arm as he eats the ice cream with the other. I’m looking at it very intensely, so he asks my parents if I can have a taste. They hem and haw and eventually decide it’s ok. He gives me a small bite. I taste it for a few seconds, then immediately grab the arm holding the ice cream and shove my face into the cone.
A Farro bowl. It was ok.
That was not a pun on Farrah’s name. I literally had a bowl of farro with chicken and vegetables and sriracha.

Well now you know how to do it! (Make the salmon, that is)
Ok. Story time. My friend, who we’ll call “Roger Sterling,” has en email account “firstname.lastname@example.org.” A few months ago he started getting all of these weird emails addressed to “Roger Sterling” for like hentai porn and NRA memberships and stuff like that. Eventually he found out that there’s another “Roger Sterling” with the adress “email@example.com” And I guess sometimes he puts a period when he signs up for stuff because he’s the kind of guy who goes for hentai and guns. Anyway, last week, my friend gets an email that says, basically, “Hah! I found you, you fucker! You think you can threaten me online? Well guess what, I know who you are and where you live, asshole!” My friend responded that he was not who he thought he was, but the guy was having none of it. He basically said he called the “Brooklyn Police” and Roger’s job saying that their employee made “terroristic threats.” Long story short, he didn’t call his job, and after many emails Roger was able to sort of convince the crazy guy about the other Roger Sterling. The guy closed with this: “I contacted my local police department, wouldn’t make sense for brooklyn, even though i may have implied so. I am going no further with this as I have done all I can and it is truly a waste of time. If you are the guy I’m sure it will come out it due time. If you aren’t, then so sorry to bother you… Either way, I like your pretty cat pictures though!”
tl;dr Stay safe, you guys!
Little known fact: Accidental Dick Pics was the 11th plague visited upon the ancient Egyptians, but it was left out of the bible because they liked the roundness of “Ten Plagues”
WTF IS WRONG WTIH U??????? Arguing on the internet is the best habit. Come over and fight me, brah. I’ve already called the cops.
My elbow has been bothering me for the past couple of months, so after many doctors and an MRI, they’ve finally diagnosed me has having a partial tear in one of my tendons. On the one hand, yay for knowing what it is! On the other hand, I can’t box or do any other kind of upper body activity for at least the next month. Plus I have to wear this brace that looks like one of those ipod armbands, but on my forearm. Literally all day every day for the next month. “Could this armband be any cooler?” is what I’m not saying.
Other than that, I’ve been reading Steph’s book and it’s super fun and great! I also learned a really cool technique for cooking salmon en sous vide without an immersion circulator! Basically, you heat a pot of water to 130F (basically a little warmer than the hottest tap water). Then you portion the salmon and put each filet into a 1Q ziploc bag with a tiny bit of canola oil. Take as much air as you can out of the bag, seal it tightly, then put it in the water and cover. Leave it for 20 minutes. That’s it! The salmon comes out buttery smooth and flaky without anything overcooked! The reason it works is because a pot of water will only drop about 10 degrees in the 20 minutes, which is enough time to cook the fish all the way through to its ideal core temperature of about 118F. I made some last night and it was super great.
I guess I just don’t understand why thinking about the world differently, even if it is on a superficial level, is a bad thing.
Both of my parents are scientists, they went to school with scientists, and many of their friends are scientists. I’ve found with my vigorous scientific method of spending time with those people, that the more “brilliant” they are, the more likely they are to have, if not a mild form of aspergers, then severe social awkwardness. Obviously i’m overgeneralizing here, but there’s a difference between doing amazing work in a lab and then explaining those results so that us normies can understand.
That video from a few months ago with him talking about the nature of the Universe and our place in it got me pumped up like nothing else. He, like Stephen Hawking, is able to take huge, mind-bending concepts and make them accessible to the average layman. Unfortunately for Dr. Hawking, his disability makes it difficult for him to communicate on a mass scale the way that Tyson can. Although Tyson may not be the most brilliant, he has the ability and charm to communicate with the everyday layman that many can’t.
In another example, is Malcolm Gladwell the greatest social scientist ever? No. But he writes about interesting and complex topics in an engaging and accessible way. That’s why he’s a national bestseller and you’ve never heard of the people whose works he references.
That being said holy shit $950 for a shot glass.
Actually, silver is insanely expensive right now. Almost $30 an ounce, which is actually down a lot from where it was last year.
