Is it bad if the block of text I used for this was a union email I sent to all my members?
I know one of you asked for another long tower defense game comparable to Gemcraft. Protector IV might fit that bill.

In case you haven't seen it, I've compiled a list of time wasters and flash games for anyone who wants to waste some time. Just added GalaxyZoo to the section of Science things.

Word game

Because [livejournal.com profile] rosefox and [livejournal.com profile] the_xtina always need more word games, Clockwords is a simple game where you shoot words at robot spiders to kill them. If you use certain letters or combinations you get do more damage. You can combine letters in the lab to make more powerful letters.
Because we all need more ways to waste time, and more games, especially tower defenses with a taste of gems to them: GemCraft.
Yet another good time wasting game I just discovered: Bubble Tanks. This one has a gameplay similar to Geometry Wars, plus upgrades along a tech tree where you can go for fast but weak, or heavy tank.
If you're looking for a short sci-fi read, give this one a whirl.
A long analysis of the Harry Potter series written by Orson Scott Card (free registration may be required). Card uses Snape in Book 6 (the review was written before Book 7 was released), as well as his progress throughout the series, to give further insight to Rowling's development as a writer, comparing Snape to Gollum, and other interesting ways of looking at the series from the point of view of a fellow author.
It's been a recurring discussion in my household, so I figured since I'm procrastinating, it's about time to get others' opinions.

[Poll #1131954]

Edit: To clarify, Person A contends they don't need to shower all that often, and therefore are inherently unstinky. On the other hand, Person B contends that since they shower daily, that they are always perpetually unstinky b/c of being recently cleaned.

Twitter?

Because I need more procrastination (and cowbell), anyone got a link to how to get Twitter to post to LJ?

Vocab

On FreeRice level 44 "littleneck" came up. One of the choices was "quahog," which I knew was a clam - I knew this from elementary school, when we learned that wampum was a type of currency used by some Native American peoples where they made beads out of quahog (clam) shells and since there was less of the purple part of the shell, the purple beads were worth more than the white. They were in bead form so the women (I think, maybe men) could wear them in necklaces.

So, "littleneck" had four choices including "quahog". What made me choose that one was that I'd learned about Indians using quahog, presumably Indians native to the region of the US I grew up in. Plus there was a town nearby called Little Neck. So yeah, I picked littleneck = quahog, and it turns out I was right. I'm surprisingly pretty good at reasoning out these words, even when I don't know most of them.
