It seemed like it was hard for you to stick your tongue out straight? Great to see you, numbness and all :)

These are lovely little video shorts of kids' stories. I love them and think you should too!
 
The latest Written By a Kid features the most adorable storytelling by 6-year-old Emily! Thanks to Ghost Bot for doing the KILLER animation!  Please share if you like, it helps us! :)

OK, y'all, I'm recruiting for D&D again. Who has 3 hours on a Wednesday evening that they'd like to spend with three smart (and let's face it, quite fetching) ladies and a well-versed DM, slaying nasties and grabbing loots? We've moved on to using the Pathfinder rulebook, which is a lot of fun. No RPG experience necessary - will train on the job. Come on, gamers, get your D&D nerd on with us!

I'm looking to play in a Pathfinder game. New to the Google+ stuff though. What do I need to do (character creation, getting G+ set up, etc.)?

And with that, I have completed my academic coursework, FOREVER. (Now there's just this little matter of comprehensive exams and some silly little dissertation to write.)

Heading to Minneapolis, Minnesota in November. Looking for must sees, dos, and eats. I'll be car-less, so on public transit or downtown a plus.

There is no way this is real... IS IT?
 
Harry Potter fan says The Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit are rip offs of Harry Potter and goes on to explain some parallels between the two series.

This is possibly the greatest read since that Twilight fan reviewed Bram Stoker's Dracula on +Goodreads!

In case it gets taken down, here's the text by +IMDb user brian__007:

"Overall, I like "Lord of the Rings." However, I do feel that Tolkien kind of rips off "Harry Potter" in many ways. There are several parallels, such as elves, dwarfs, wizards, goblins, trolls, magic (especially invisibility), etc. Sauron is referred to as “Dark Lord” just like Voldemort is. There is also the elder white-haired bearded wizard who serves almost as a mentor, Gandalf, who is reminiscent of Dumbledore. Some of the character names are similar, such as Wormtongue as opposed to Wormtail, too. There is even a gigantic spider (Shelob) at the end of "The Two Towers" that reminds one of Aragog from "Chamber of Secrets." I even noticed that the plots of both series begin with the protagonists’ birthday. Now I see that Tolkien, this unoriginal bastard, is coming out with "The Hobbit" in December. This would be fine, but why didn't he just write this book first to begin with? I still like "Lord of the Rings," though--don't get me wrong--but I wonder if Tolkien has ever said in interviews whether he borrowed elements from Harry Potter. I’ll be watching the extended DVDs later this week and I think he’s featured on the commentary track, so I look forward to that."

Priceless, I know.

Most likely troll. It's funny though!

Well, isn't this a fantastic article? Why the cycling industry needs to wake up to commuters and women cyclists.
