Verb forms and the subtleties of verb usage in English tend to trip up many people when they learn English as a second language.  Unfortunately, some native speakers have a hard time getting them right too, and that's the background for the headine I would like to call the World's Worst Headline.  That may be a slightly extravagant label, but this headline is definitely in the running. See what you think: http://proofed-writing.blogspot.com/2012/08/worlds-worst-headline-maybe-so.html
I don't want to go over the top in my description, but I saw a headline recently that I would be proud to nominate for the dubious distinction of being the "World's Worst Headline." A good headline ne...

If you haven't had a good dose of humor yet today, check this out (but ignore the whiny voice - trying to make light of some momentary stress can do that, you know!).

Where is Truth? How can it be discovered, when it is so intertwined with outright fabrications and exaggerations? This man has harmed his case by being what he calls "theatrical."

Merry Christmas, to all who celebrate Christmas. Happy Hanukkah to my Jewish friends and acquaintances. Joyous Kwanzaa to all who are getting ready to celebrate it. And Happy Holidays to anyone whose special holiday I have missed or not yet learned about, and to those who don't have one special period of festivity.

May all the blessings of the season be yours, and may you have the joy and wisdom and courage to share those blessings with everyone else!

You've heard "Life is too short to make sure you remove your flashdrive safely"?

Well, how about this: Life is too short to have to relearn how to use Facebook, Yahoo!, and Google+ every time one of their employees gets bored or wants to justify their salary.

No, I don't like the new look. I don't like how slow everything is now. Why can the cursor not even keep up with my keyboarding?

Seriously, this is beyond ridiculous. Nothing has shown up yet, since "salary.(Enter)."

I'm allowed to be a curmudgeon today, especially as it relates to the brevity of life. As of today, I am officially a Senior Citizen, even though AARP has been wooing me for years.

Having watched some of the JonBenet tragedy all those years ago, I find it encouraging and even comforting to read her father's disapproval of modern toddler beauty pageants.

Even more encouragement can be found in the comments to the article (and the high numbers of thumbs-ups). I especially liked the comment that says some of this behavior is a form of child abuse. I agree.

This may be the most exciting news I have read in... years, perhaps. Some "far-fetched" ideas do actually have practical, realistic potential. Hallelujah for this study and for the hope that it's offering!

Next - move this a few steps closer to testing in humans?

Not long ago, on another site, I saw a profile picture that looked - to me - frightening. That is, when I scrolled down to the picture, my first reaction was that of feeling strongly disturbed and repulsed. I wanted nothing more than to remove the image from my screen, and I did so as quickly as possible. I couldn't imagine why anyone would choose to represent themselves with such a picture. (It is possible that the effect was intended, but that was not obviously the case.)

More and more, I am seeing pictures that disturb me in some way. Some of them seem to be disturbing in a "fun" (?) sort of way - like parodies of horror, and that sort of thing. But then, there are the pictures that - like that profile picture - seem intended to have a different effect, but instead bother me in some way.

Is it me, or are cultural esthetics changing that strongly? I would probably not notice it quite so much, but for the fact that they seem to be coming in waves recently.
