The only 2 reasons I'd ever live in Europe.
What's the more terrifying car to drive full-bore on the Nürburgring Nordschleife, the 1,200-lb, 475hp Ariel Atom V8 or the 2,800-lb, 650hp Noble M600?

I can't wait to get my corgi. 'Fetch beer' will obviously be first.
Lance the lovable corgi (is there any other kind of corgi?) returns with a brand new bag of tricks he is eager to show off. Mostly because he gets doggy treats if he performs them correctly, but also ...

There are no more jokes. The comedians dead, remember.

Day 2 of no Facebook. All is still quiet and my habit of frequently checking my phone has drastically declined. Productivity is slightly up. On the Chive and Reddit more. Need to broaden my Google + functionality. Any recommendations? I like bacon, cars, and anime.

So I'm done with it. Not life (yet)., but of the ignorance and bull shit from all people. I thought I'd give it another try. As in maybe if I lower my standards about life in general I'll just become desensitized to reality. But that was just another of my illusions of grandeur. I've temporarily disabled my Facebook as a result. I'll go unnoticed for sure but that's not the point I'm trying to express. The issue I'm experiencing is a phenomenon I'd like to call Accountability Loss Aversion (working title) In other words, people no longer feel that what they say or do; whether that be social media or online gaming; will ever have an impact on who they are or how people react to them. I personally play games on Xbox Live and I refuse to use my headset to communicate with the other gamers. The level of racial slurs and general negative remarks expressed is down right discouraging to the progress of humanity. I haven't personally been at the receiving end of these verbal remarks as I'm actually trying to enjoy my experience of playing with people from around the world. So getting to my main point. I am, by nature, a calm, laid back, boring individual. I don't start fights or arguments because I just don't give a shit about most things. But I seem to be cursed with a halo of negative energy because no matter what I say to my friends on their Facebook post, or even my own wall, hatred and anger ensues. People must assume they are free from retaliation in this web centric world we live in but there is no chance in any hell someone would say any of these remarks to my face. I may be a mean person in my thinking but I'm not a bad person. I just can't fathom the gall of random people to talk to me in such a way that would provoke me to want to hurt them. There isn't enough alcohol in my home to surpress the anger that I have for individuals who take no responsibility for there actions. In this generation, a text or comment on a social media forum is considered an action, a threat even. So I leave it now to you mature, responsible adults of Google + to restore sanity to my desensitized existence. I'll be using this social medium differently as well. This will be my ranting blog of sorts. I'll be as real and straight forward with you as I always am. I just hope the responses I receive will give me some hope in humanity.

Thank you.

We'd like to think that this Chinese sunglass maker who's using Helen Keller to hawk its shades is a simple case of lost in translation. But we're finding it hard to believe that even the crudest of t...

I appreciated history way before the internetz.
Internet know-it-all C.G.P. Grey runs down five common misconceptions about history, debunking them as he goes. Did you know that vomitoriums are not at all what their name suggests?
