Overheard while shopping today (unrelated as far as I can tell):

"Excuse me, can you tell me where the whoopie cushions are?  It's for a science experiment"

"You left Fargo? Why would anybody leave Fargo!?!"

There are estimated to be around 400 practising falconers in #Mongolia today.

Kazakh boys learn how to use the huge birds to hunt for foxes and hares at the age of 13.

But meet Ashol-Pan; the little girl who may well be the country's only apprentice huntress: bbc.in/1kUvTr6

Heartbleed is most likely to affect you as a server-side bug; there are reports that allowed password and account information to be retrieved from many major financial sites. The best way to for individuals to respond is probably to reset all important internet passwords.  You can get an idea if a given site was affected (meaning that there was a possibility that account information was stolen between the time the bug was introduced and when the server was patched) using the site below.

You're a bunch of poopy heads, Mozambique Council of Ministers.  Your father was a hamster and your mother smelt of elderberries.  Your fashion sense would make a hipster cry.  

So what're you gunna do, extradite me?

Nowadays, people are so thin-skinned that this wouldn't work.
 
"The confessions of criminals were occasionally bound in the skin of the convicted, or an individual might request to be memorialized for family or lovers in the form of a book." http://theatln.tc/1j6Dajr
There's even an official name for it: anthropodermic bibliopegy.

It's interesting that passenger plane disasters get the most attention from the media and from government safety agencies, but ferries kill far more people. And from terrorists, thank goodness!  
  (I travel by ferry a couple times of week, on average. I know where the life preservers are kept.  I have plans on what I'll do depending on what part of the ferry I'm on if the deck starts to tilt - I really don't want to be trapped inside a capsized ship).

“Before the Internet, the tedious work of organizing that was required to circumvent censorship or to organize a protest also helped build infrastructure for decision making and strategies for sustaining momentum. Now movements can rush past that step, often to their own detriment.”
How can so many demonstrations accomplish so little?

When making eggdrop soup, wait until the water is boiling to add the eggs, lest the eggs turn to latex on the bottom of the sauce pan.

hahaha
yeah, that sounds lovely. >.<
I made some last month, with corn like the local chinese place makes it. I was happy with it, but I think I stirred too fast and made the eggs a little too tiny. It still tasted fine but the texture was a little bit off.
