Thought of the day: it would be great if instead of 1-hour interviews, companies "hired" potential workers for a week to see how well they actually perform in the company and at doing their jobs.  I feel like a lot of false negatives would be eliminated this way.  What do you think the advantages or disadvantages of a system like that would be?

Boy, does the world need more of those! UX seems to be so much harder to get right than it should be.

Some may see this man as a hero.  Some may see this man as a tormented soul.  Some may see this man as an attention whore who is now burning in hell.  The truth probably lies somewhere between, but all I know is that the world is a little less bright without this beautiful human being in it.

I think it's telling that the bigot who promised to set himself on fire because gay marriage was going to be the end of the world is still alive.

Although the physical concept is very simple, this "cabinet" is immensely satisfying.  Be sure to check out the photos and video at the artist's link: http://www.meetsebastian.com/sebastian-errazuriz-design-art-wave-wood-cabinet
 
Artist and designer Sebastian ErraZuriz's 'Wave Cabinet' is simple but dazzling.

“I am inviting people to look at one of the simplest forms of furniture design and to forget that we’re talking about furniture, instead to see it as a way of breaking a box..."
Artist and designer Sebastian ErraZuriz creates furniture that first appears to be sleek and minimalist, but morphs into pieces of art.

Afternoon game: come up with a word or phrase that gets at least one search result in Google but no more than one page.  Go!

I am noting though, that "Ke-Qi" isn't very easy to find. The negative of it (Bu Ke-Qi) is quite easy, but on it's on as what is Ke-Qi (a fundamental element of chinese etiquette) is not. ("Ke-Qi" -"bu ke-qi" -"bu keqi" -"bie ke qi" -"bu yong ke qi")

For those of you who row your own gears, what is your typical shift point?  If you drive multiple cars regularly, either pick the one you drive most or your favorite.

When two people have been together for 54 years, they deserve every benefit and recognition that comes with being married.  Now they can finally make it official.
 
This is sweet.  The 3-day waiting period was waived so they could marry and they're they first couple to marry in Dallas county after being together for 54 years.

Beer for your hair sounds dubious, but I couldn't help but crack up at this description.  Anyone try it?  If you want to give it a shot, you can enter coupon code "15" to get 15% off your order.  No affiliation!

"Beer, as it turns out, is good for your hair.  Really, really, really ridiculously good for your hair.  SO, not only have people been using beer as shampoo for hundreds of years, but if you've been using commercial shampoo & conditioner then you've been feeding your hair the equivalent of a steady diet of Mountain Dew and store-brand McNuggets.

Duffy's Brew, on the other hand, is like a sustainably raised Kobe Beef Filet Mignon, served by a Bald Eagle on a bed of shredded Declaration of Independence.  On The Moon."

I'm pretty sure I must have written this description. It sounds eerily like something I would write.

I have something new for the bucket list.  But unlike most bucket list activities, this one would probably outlast my lifetime!  The man who made this incredible miniature city spent seven years to build it, and I have no doubt he will spend the rest of his life perfecting it.
    The Vietnamese proof to be masters at creating miniature landscapes. Just two weeks ago we shared an article about a single

I've been uploading my camera pictures to Google Photos and was pleasantly surprised with some of the results. I think this is from when Ronnie and I met up at the Samsung display in Columbus Circle, NYC.

Not only did they get my order wrong, but when I came back to get the missing item, they gave me the wrong thing (enchilada instead of a super burrito). Food quality was passable if you're craving Mexican, but was pretty mediocre otherwise. I will not be coming here again despite living within easy walking distance.

My experience here was absolutely top notch. I came in looking for a bonsai for my father and was greeted by the sweetest old couple who seem to run the place with their friendly dogs. The bonsai selection was fabulous, the prices are very reasonable, and they helped me find the perfect tree. Couldn't be happier!
