Anybody here try both EpicWin (recent iPhone app) and ChoreWars (2007 website) and have a comparison for me? EpicWin is a few bucks, and I'd like a better idea of it before I spend it.

It's TV Turnoff Week! Turn off your TV this week and do something else. Enjoy the outdoors. Call a friend. Do something.

Hm, I already don't watch TV, maybe I should turn off the computer. :-P

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] keithlard for the head's up.

Daylight exacerbates warning

You may have noticed that March of this year was particularly hot. As a matter of fact, I understand that it was the hottest March since the beginning of the last century. All of the trees were fully leafed out and legions of bugs and snakes were crawling around during a time in Arkansas when, on a normal year, we might see a snowflake or two. This should come as no surprise to any reasonable person. As you know, Daylight Saving Time started almost a month early this year. You would think that members of Congress would have considered the warming effect that an extra hour of daylight would have on our climate. Or did they ? Perhaps this is another plot by a liberal Congress to make us believe that global warming is a real threat. Perhaps next time there should be serious studies performed before Congress passes laws with such far-reaching effects.

If you think it's looping, watch it a couple more times.
Found by [livejournal.com profile] jrtom, it's Supermarket 2.0 (in the style of Web 2.0).

I loved "people who buy red wine, cereal, and chocolate also buy..."

Um, and if you don't get Web 2.0, um... I'm only starting to get it myself... Um, wikipedia it?

To the wall of children's communication!

It's essentially another click-to-donate program.
Yes, that's really the title of a google ad I saw today. It's for jewelry for mothers, who want the jewelry to be baby-safe.
If you know a couple that's just too cutsey for words, get them a pair of Smittens. Just be careful, they may actually *use* them and then you'll have to go find a barf bucket. The scariest part is, I can actually make these...


I can think of two things that are biologically, anatomically wrong. What can you spot?

ETA: Snopes has a rudimentary article on it, but no actual information is contained.

ETAA:Sending the following comment to Snopes.

My comment regards the below article about a purported photograph of a "fetal footprint".

http://www.snopes.com/photos/arts/footprint.asp

I am surprised the article does not contain further information. For example, any fetus is located within the mother's womb, which is itself composed of many layers. It would be shocking if the fetus's foot could be made out through the placenta. And the mother also has abdominal muscles which are located between the surface of the skin and the placenta, which should further "blur" the appearance of any fetal appendages. Lastly, the positioning of fetuses in the womb usually places the feet facing upwards and towards the back of the mother.

Even though the history of the image is unknown, the probability of it being real is nil. If it were real, then the mother should be in the ER, not sitting around having her photograph taken for kitchy political statements.
This Washington Post article starts off with some really disgusting bling, but it gets more interesting from there, talking about how they're increasing the appeal of electronics to female consumers, and the results of that.
For the WoW fans.

The Chronicle is a top nationwide higher ed journal, and is how I found my current job.

Aw man, I really want to learn more about Garage Band now. The sound track from this video could be remixed into an awesome techno track! :-P
Oh man, why didn't someone tell me about Silicon Dreams before my Halloween Party? Anyone have mp3's?
