Excellent! 20 hours to learn (enter your intrigue here).
How to Learn Anything

"The major barrier to skill acquisition isn't intellectual... it's emotional." An excellent reminder of how easy it can be to learn a new skill. Kaufman says it only takes 20 hours.

"Josh Kaufman is the author of the #1 international bestseller, 'The Personal MBA: Master the Art of Business', as well as the upcoming book 'The First 20 Hours: Mastering the Toughest Part of Learning Anything.' Josh specializes in teaching people from all walks of life how to master practical knowledge and skills. In his talk, he shares how having his first child inspired him to approach learning in a whole new way."

This one's funny, but maybe a bit less so to anyone who has an older brother.
If I had to vote, I'd elect this the funniest video on the internet.

Cant. Stop. Laughing!

Glad I discovered this group - looks very interesting! Please excuse my first post that's a bit off-topic, but I'm hoping for some tips from Korean residents:

I'll be visiting Seoul for about a full month, and looking for social opportunities there. I used to live there (English teaching) but that was years ago and I no longer have any contacts there. Also I speak a little Korean, but I struggle in 'real' conversations. Does anyone have any suggestions for groups or events that would be appropriate?

I'd be interested in meeting with a group that has 'some' English speaking ability, since my Korean is poor. An obvious group might be people learning English, but I'm also interested in professional social media, blogging, music (I'm a trumpet player/teacher) and sports. A formal temporary teaching assignment isn't out of the question, but I'm really looking for social interaction. Any ideas?

Now I just need someone to make it for me (I'm the kind of guy who could burn the water, given a chance).
Strawberries, check. Cheesecake, check. Sweet depth of field photo of said dessert, check. Yep, this is food porn! These cheesecake stuffed strawberries show that you can make anything healthy taste better with just a little cheesecake. These have the additional benefit of coming in a bite sized package ;)

A great new take on the Batman vs Shark theme. Must've run out of the shark-repellent Bat-Spray...
Batman, wielding a lightsaber, attacking a shark. Need I say more?
