This is what I've been seeing.  Even as recently as 4:25.

I did this. You should, too.
Modify the theme of your #googlechrome  element explorer.

~/.config/google-chrome/Default/User StyleSheets/Custom.css

~/Library/Application Support/Google/Chrome/Default/User StyleSheets/Custom.css


Here is a theme to get you started

#chrome   #development   #linux   #css  

I voted.  #Election2012

I had a witty, relevant comment for this, but then I thought a woman might see my post.

In all seriousness, though, it is an interesting read, and I should like to read the paper directly.

Brilliant.  I remember my snake-fight.
Q: Would someone who wrote a bad thesis and defeated a large snake get the same grade as someone who wrote a good thesis and defeated a small snake? 
A: Yes.

Q: So then couldn’t you just fight a snake in lieu of actually writing a thesis? 
A: Technically, yes. But in that case the snake would be very big. Very big, indeed.

Q: Could the snake kill me? 
A: That almost never happens. But if you’re worried, just make sure that you write a good thesis.

Q: Why do I have to do this? 
A: Snake fighting is one of the great traditions of higher education. It may seem somewhat antiquated and silly, like the robes we wear at graduation, but fighting a snake is an important part of the history and culture of every reputable university. Almost everyone with an advanced degree has gone through this process. Notable figures such as John Foster Dulles, Philip Roth, and Doris Kearns Goodwin (to name but a few) have all had to defeat at least one snake in single combat.

Q: This whole snake thing is just a metaphor, right? 
A: I assure you, the snakes are very real.
