Though I saw it all around
Never thought I could be affected
Thought that we'd be the last to go
It is so strange the way things turn

Weekend Linkee-poo is hiding out

Why you should call the FCC about net neutrality. Here's a contact page.

One of those days as a writer.

Short stories on coffee cups. If it weren't for the gratuitous PR/marketing nature of it, I would be applauding. But what I seen now is just more advertising space. (Grokked from Saladin Ahmed)

Another reason why I distrust server based solutions. In this case a badly rolled out update repartitions and reformats everyones' drives, including the servers. (Matt Staggs)

Why you never hear back after an interview. Having been involved with the process with several companies, this isn't too far from the actual truth. (Grokked from the Slactivist)

For those times at work when you need to disappear, the authentic ostrich pillow. (Grokked from George Takei)

In God we trust, but only since the 50s. (Grokked from the Slactivist)

"When you’re poor, you can’t afford to dream." Random Michelle on poverty. As a side note, even after you've "made it", that inability to dream haunts you later in life.

So, how did the American Spring go? Yea, pretty much like the rest of them. Sorry, the Revolution was cancelled on account of it being rainy. (Grokked from Matt Staggs)

"[N]o matter how much Republicans say they care about infrastructure, they’re not going to accept any infrastructure proposals that come from President Barack Obama." For those of us who live in the north, it's easy to see the infrastructure crumbling. There's only so many potholes you can fill before the road won't take anymore and just crumbles. Trust me, I've seen it happen. What's worse is the roads and bridges that look perfectly safe, until they collapse in a cloud of dust. (Grokked from the Slactivist)

It kinda sucks when your cover story of "we don't know these (wingnut) people who are helping our campaign" breaks down so easily. "'I think it would be interesting to know how she would hear about it before 7:45 a.m.,' Russell said, if no one at the McDaniel campaign had met Kelly or knew of his work on McDaniel’s behalf." A whackaloon Tea Party blogger breaks into a nursing home to photograph the wife of less rabid conservative candidate. (Grokked from Matt Staggs)

“Men, who on the second date, let their date pay for dinner, I’m sorry that’s disgusting,” (Fox News host Tucker Carlson) insisted. “And I don’t care. The new norms are — he shouldn’t allow it. Period.” Dear Tucker Carlson, my manhood isn't affected if a woman pays for dinner. I'm sorry that your manhood is a small, pathetic, mewling thing that such a non-event or a strong woman can emasculate you by just her presence and autonomy. The rest of us men are comfortable with out manhood enough that we don't find it a problem. (Grokked from the Slactivist)
