Can you be a fan of a music band if you only like three of their videos? and only because of the audacity of the kineticism and visual gimmickry? Why yes, I believe you can.

Nope. I'm too old for Indie Rock. My tastes run more toward Classic Rock, aka Oldies Channel. :(

I had a lot of fun with this app. I should be living in Kahului, Maui... or El Rito, New Mexico.

I share many values with Japan. Australia and New Zealand are also Pacific island nations.

Every subculture has an accompanying vocabulary that sounds risible or unintelligible to outsiders.
Calling something “blessed” has become the go-to term for those who want to boast about an accomplishment while pretending to be humble, fish for a compliment, or purposely elicit envy.

Wow.

A great analysis of the beauty and knowledge held within our public library system - long may it live.

I follow her (Maria Popova) blogs on occasion, wonderful perspectives on life.

To be world famous, it's best to be a politician. Also, soccer players. But artists: actors, singers, writers, painters, and musicians combined are more well known. Fascinating stuff.

This was fun to ponder. What do you value? Is it the same as what you think children should be taught?
Not everyone agrees on the best methods for raising kids. Take our quiz to see which country shares your parenting values.

I know how you feel. These days everything is viewed through the climate change filter, for me.

I'm not a programmer, but I liked this.

"The human brain isn't particularly good at basic logic and now there's a whole career in doing nothing but really, really complex logic. Vast chains of abstract conditions and requirements have to be picked through to discover things like missing commas. Doing this all day leaves you in a state of mild aphasia as you look at people's faces while they're speaking and you don't know they've finished because there's no semicolon."

This is a great essay and kept me smiling from start to finish!  My favorite line is "All programming teams are constructed by and of crazy people" - more fact than fiction.  Thanks for posting +Leanne Yanabu .

To me it's remarkable how much time they spent drinking coffee and smoking. Needless to say, no Mormons on the list.
