Why lose weight? Live unhealthy and use just HP digital cameras with slimming technology

This is just all kinds of wrong. Why don't they go all the way and include a "white-ify" tool?

‘Until Monday’ publishes hyperlocal content with Movable Type

The interesting thing is, the amount of custom program they talk about doing. We use Expression Engine, and don't have to resort to nearly much custom programming.

I like the design of Michael Godwin’s blog, ‘Godwin’s Law’

I wonder if Apple likes it .. after all, it's a riff on the early Macintosh OS.

Flickr now lets you geotag photos (i.e. put them on a map)

Drunken Pirate Runs for office in Iowa

Sarah, a 29-year-old virgin, is blogging to find someone to sleep with her before her 30th

It's a Jane blog. I could be mistaken, but I think if she were to go out to a bar, say, tonight, she might possibly find someone who'd help her out.

Apple no longer sells a machine capable of running pre-2001 Mac software

That's right -- any software written more than 5 years ago requires Classic, and Classic won't run on an Intel Mac.

CandyBlog Rates Bonkers as Its First Inedible Candy

Strawberry: slightly floral and slightly putrid tasting. A little tangy but with sort of moldy/mossy note. Lemon: tastes like a moist and ripe citrus burp. Orange: tangy but with a rather uneven flavor that alternates between bile and tang.

Actually, my Flickr-versary is August 19th, but today I got my 100,000th image view, so I wanted to celebrate that as well.I have one picture from earlier than Aug. 19, but that was just me staking a claim on the name "nep." My first real photo post was of my good friend, Mike.

Overheard

“The sad truth is that most evil is done by people who never make up their minds to be good or evil.”

...who said it?

“Almost every American I know does trade large portions of his life for entertainment, hour by weeknight hour, binge by Saturday binge, Facebook check by Facebook check. I’m one of them. In the course of writing this I’ve watched all 13 episodes of House of Cards and who knows how many more West Wing episodes, and I’ve spent any number of blurred hours falling down internet rabbit holes. All instead of reading, or writing, or working, or spending real time with people I love.”

...who said it?

“Live a good life. If there are gods and they are just, then they will not care how devout you have been, but will welcome you based on the virtues you have lived by. If there are gods, but unjust, then you should not want to worship them. If there are no gods, then you will be gone, but will have lived a noble life that will live on in the memories of your loved ones.”

...who said it?

“I play with variables constantly.”

...who said it?

“Only the person who has learned Continual Love coming from a heart of Gratitude/Worship can effectively deal with the problem of loneliness.”

...who said it?
