Republicans prefer brown liquor; Democrats prefer clear liquor; High-propensity voters like wine.

Europe is overrun with small hatchbacks, but you can only buy a handful of them in the United States. Why is that? One Redditor gave a simple, clear explanation why.

“At the edge of the Abyss”

Photographed from 98th floor of the Trust Tower in Abu Dhabi. It is the very tip of the tallest tower in the Capital.
Those men on the makeshift wooden ledge are standing over the 300m deep abyss. Slightly unnerving to say the least…but definitely worth it! The view these men and me had that morning was second to none…
This is a vertical panorama, ‘stitched’ from 6 separate shots. Pre-processing was done on Lightroom 4.3. 16-bit TIFF files were exported to Photoshop CS 5.5 where final assembly of the panorama was performed. Final grade with Viveza 2 and Color Efex Pro.
I use Canon 5D mk2 + Nikon AF-S NIKKOR 14-24mm f/2.8G ED Lens via Novoflex EOS Nik adapter

This amazing photo of a person feeding birds in Krakow has gone viral in a span of hours today, mostly thanks to Reddit and Imgur. Anyone know who shot it? This guy/gal deserves a credit line with all of this anonymous fame.

Update: We now have a ("possible," according to appropriately skeptical internetters) name for the photog: Marcin Ryczek

Here's his Facebook page: http://www.facebook.com/MarcinRyczekFotografia

Pretty much says it all - bags of potential, but people can't be bothered.

Somehow this is unsurprising.

1 Age-otori (Japanese): To look worse after a haircut

2 Arigata-meiwaku (Japanese): An act someone does for you that you didn’t want to have them do and tried to avoid having them do, but they went ahead anyway, determined to do you a favor, and then things went wrong and caused you a lot of trouble, yet in the end social conventions required you to express gratitude

3 Backpfeifengesicht (German): A face badly in need of a fist

4 Bakku-shan (Japanese): A beautiful girl… as long as she’s being viewed from behind

5 Desenrascanço (Portuguese): “to disentangle” yourself out of a bad situation (To MacGyver it)

6 Duende (Spanish): a climactic show of spirit in a performance or work of art, which might be fulfilled in flamenco dancing, or bull-fighting, etc.

7 Forelsket (Norwegian): The euphoria you experience when you are first falling in love

8 Gigil (pronounced Gheegle; Filipino): The urge to pinch or squeeze something that is unbearably cute

9 Guanxi (Mandarin): in traditional Chinese society, you would build up good guanxi by giving gifts to people, taking them to dinner, or doing them a favor, but you can also use up your gianxi by asking for a favor to be repaid

10 Ilunga (Tshiluba, Congo): A person who is ready to forgive any abuse for the first time, to tolerate it a second time, but never a third time

11 L’esprit de l’escalier (French): usually translated as “staircase wit,” is the act of thinking of a clever comeback when it is too late to deliver it

12 Litost (Czech): a state of torment created by the sudden sight of one’s own misery

13 Mamihlapinatapai (Yaghan): A look between two people that suggests an unspoken, shared desire

14 Manja (Malay): “to pamper”, it describes gooey, childlike and coquettish behavior by women designed to elicit sympathy or pampering by men. “His girlfriend is a damn manja. Hearing her speak can cause diabetes.”

15 Meraki (pronounced may-rah-kee; Greek): Doing something with soul, creativity, or love. It’s when you put something of yourself into what you’re doing

16 Nunchi (Korean): the subtle art of listening and gauging another’s mood. In Western culture, nunchi could be described as the concept of emotional intelligence. Knowing what to say or do, or what not to say or do, in a given situation. A socially clumsy person can be described as ‘nunchi eoptta’, meaning “absent of nunchi”

17 Pena ajena (Mexican Spanish): The embarrassment you feel watching someone else’s humiliation

18 Pochemuchka (Russian): a person who asks a lot of questions

19 Schadenfreude (German): the pleasure derived from someone else’s pain

20 Sgriob (Gaelic): The itchiness that overcomes the upper lip just before taking a sip of whisky

21 Taarradhin (Arabic): implies a happy solution for everyone, or “I win. You win.” It’s a way of reconciling without anyone losing face. Arabic has no word for “compromise,” in the sense of reaching an arrangement via struggle and disagreement

22 Tatemae and Honne (Japanese): What you pretend to believe and what you actually believe, respectively

23 Tingo (Pascuense language of Easter Island): to borrow objects one by one from a neighbor’s house until there is nothing left

24 Waldeinsamkeit (German): The feeling of being alone in the woods

25 Yoko meshi (Japanese): literally ‘a meal eaten sideways,’ referring to the peculiar stress induced by speaking a foreign language

I get arigata-meiwaku all the time...

Software, for windows. Thank you. What does it do? Oh, it is a network optimizer. You are running it now and it already suggests I turn off 802.11g wireless. No, let's not do that. Yeah, you can stop trying the default 'Brand' passwords. I have changed the password.

(Meanwhile, I am a linux fanboy with a manually optimized network through painstaking hardware selection and software fine tuning...)

A $15 gift card for iTunes... That is so thoughtful. You'll show me how it works, that is okay. I am sure I can figure it out.

(Nothing I use or am prepared to bring into my workflow will run iTunes. I suppose I could let my wife have it.)

I'll just take this and this in.

(I can get all the groceries easily, you have the keys, it is cold out, for the love of God-- simply open the door so we can just go inside.)

Introduction
I'm a mobile technology entrepreneur by day. I started my company, DXY Solutions, in 2006.

When I'm not working, I'm either cycling, playing soccer, enjoying my friends or doing something creative like designing furniture. That's why in 2011, I started Kickstand Furniture, Ltd., a company that creates furniture for cyclists.
