It's, like, a metaphor or something?

And yet clearly Red is supposed to resemble Wendy somehow, as they died her hair to more closely resemble Wendy. Are we supposed to think that Red is just an obsessive Wendy impersonator? Are we supposed to believe that her love of Wendy's turned her red?

+MonkeyBrains​ is an awesome San Francisco local Internet Service Provider.  They are faster, cheaper, and more reliable than the major ISPs (Comcast, etc), with better customer service.  They are truly a win-win solution amid an ecosystem of otherwise terrible ISPs.

They are currently trying to raise funds to deploy gigabit wireless throughout San Francisco.  Check them out :)
MonkeyBrains is excited to offer Gigabit to the Home: 350Mbps to 1Gbps links to residential homes!

Finally opened this. Certainly not the most delicious, but not bad at all. Based upon the flavor I actually have to question a bit the veracity of the 65% claim.

The split keyboard chair at 0:15 actually looks pretty practical.  From some brief Google searching, it sounds like there are several companies that have made things like this, but I couldn't find any still making them.  Wonder whether there are any floating out there, or whether this is custom built.

A really well-written and interesting article on procrastination. It offers suggestions - unsurprising, but potentially still useful suggestions - for improvement, and importantly it finds some excellent terms. In particular, the "Dark Playground" is eerily, unpleasantly familiar.
