Here’s how to get rich:
Oooh! I got one! I think I’m gonna pick “inequitable distribution of wealth” for line #1! WOOHOO!
[Encyclopedia Brittanica president Jorge] Cauz admits that he will miss holding its volumes in his hands. That product, he says, is “not only romantic, it’s also nostalgic.”
Why do I get so many emails from Formspring? I think it has something to do with Tumblr.
Also, does anyone know how to set up Tumblr to be interactive? I’d love for you all to be able to leave comments. I’ve been nosing around for the settings but I can’t find them. Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A week or so ago I posted on Facebook that you could “fake” your browser into making Facebook think you’re on a mobile device by going to a particular URL. This is useful, for example, for checking in while on a laptop, which you can’t do from Facebook’s default URL.
I just noticed that the link I posted is not working. I have no idea if this is a temporary or permanent change. I would not be surprised if it is a permanent one.
However, I immediately found a much more obvious one that does work. http://m.facebook.com
You can almost always add “m.” to the front of a URL to get the mobile version of the site, if it exists. I suspect this URL will be retained permanently. Knock yourself out.
Yesterday, my four-year-old informed me that “It’s okay to watch the Fresh Beat Band because they encourage preschoolers.”
Yeah. Okay. Thanks for that. I guess you’re in the clear then, kid.
Someday, in the far distant future, an archaeologist will dig up pounds and pounds of the hot pepper husks I routinely discard from my Mongolian beef and falsely conclude that the early Information Age Californians engaged in regular, ritual, religious masochism.
I love you, Jon Acuff. You’re like some magical Ferris Bueller actualized into reality through a Star Trek “holo-deck” with the failsafes and the Heisenberg compensators disabled, which, until you, was something only the butler from The Nanny had managed to accomplish. Sort of. I want to take a high-speed ride with you down a Chicago highway in a 1978 Alfa Romeo 2000 Sport Sedan with John Williams blaring on the stereo. Just to say I did. I’ll pick you up right before lunch.

The classic Left view of American behavior is that people should be allowed to do whatever they want.
The classic Right view is that people need to be given margins for behavior to maintain social order for the common good. (In short, we should do what the Right says is okay.)
The past 60 years of social development have brought the Left and the Right together to a consensus view on American liberty. The new definition is this:
People should be allowed to do whatever they want. As long as I say it’s okay.
If I’m being completely honest, I guess that’s what I believe.
I bet it’s what you believe, too, deep down.
I kinda wish it wasn’t what you believed, because I bet you don’t think all the things I want to do are okay.
You need to change that belief, because you should be allowed to believe whatever you want. As long as I say it’s okay.
