Monday, October 20, 2014Still a little bitter.
Florida State's Jameis Winston Performs Admirably Under Scrutiny, at Least on the Field - NYTimes.com - I found it enormously telling that when Winston and his coach met on the field immediately after the game, the microphones picked up the coach's repeated admonishments: "Be humble. Be HUMBLE." You don't normally have to remind non-jackasses to be humble.
Ten years ago, I went to a five day summer craft camp called Camp Creative with my mother-in-law. I've been on the email newsletter list ever since. I just happened to look at this year's classes... and I'm BLOWN AWAY. So many potential zombie apocalypse training courses!
Tasmanian Devil - The New Yorker - An article about David Walsh, the weird, weird guy behind the creation of the Museum of Old and New Art in Hobart, Tasmania. We're going there next month. (It has a poop machine.)
Fake deaths, cheap resurrections, and dealing with real grief · For Our Consideration · The A.V. Club - Surprisingly emotional piece from the AV Club.
Just reminding folks that Frocktober isn't just a fun hashtag - it's actually raising money for a really great cause. If you'd like to donate to ovarian cancer research, my fundraiser page is here.
Quinnspiracy / What To Expect When You´re Expecting (the internet to ruin your life) - "Try and remember if there’s any places you have accounts for that you might have forgotten. For example, they got into a dominos.com account I had made and forgot about to try and send someone a pizza. It can be especially damaging if that account is automatically set up to charge any of your accounts." ARE YOU KIDDING ME?! Instagram

Help me get my almond fix - dessert recipe | Ask MetaFilter - Mr. Snook, I think this is relevant to your interests.
How My 98-Year-Old Grandfather Embraced The Internet - Lovely article, and it made me want to spend some time with my Grandpa online. (And wow, I only realised after I finished reading it that it was on Buzzfeed. I didn't realise they did anything but clickbait listsicles and quizzes. Good on them.)

Fictional Characters Whose Lives Would Be Improved By Abortion - "Peeta had really wanted children, but that was just too fucking bad." Instagram

The larger the rock, the rockier the marriage - MarketWatch - Some interesting stats in there. Given that the Snook and I dated for 4.5 years before getting hitched, had no engagement ring, got married in Vegas with no guests, and didn't even have wedding rings for 5 years (and only got them because I bartered web development for them), I think the outcome is clear. We're stuck with each other forever. :)

Tech's Meritocracy Problem - Medium - Well written, if a little depressing. I NEED TO READ SOMETHING HAPPY STAT.
Anita Sarkeesian Cancels Talk at Utah State After Receiving Threat of Another “Montreal Massacre.” - Well, that's put me off my lunch. How friggin' depressing.
