What do you think of the 'thinness fetish', +Eli Waite ?
Thank goodness Samsung may soon offer a seven-millimeter thick phone! Their current 8.5-millimeter phone is way too big.

Hi all! This is Nazrin, she's currently a student of PCV Mike Raybourne's and is a few votes away from winning a video contest. If you could please go to YouTube and click "like" on her video that would be fantastic. Thank you (+Eli Waite ,+Mason Wiley, +Aaron McKean ) for any help you can provide and feel free to reshare! P.S. This contest apparently ends at midnight (+4 GMT)

How the "length of a minute" varies based on what you are doing.

Using the Internet vs. a Microwave <smile>.
I agree with the break down of these minutes.

Hey LinkedIn Users...
 
LinkedIn is going to sell you, dude...

Some simple actions to be considered:

the small pull-down menu that appears, select "settings"
2. Then click "Account" on the left/bottom
3. In the column next to Account, select the option "Manage Advertising Preferences"
4. Finally un-tick the box "LinkedIn may show me ads on third-party websites."
5. and Save

How to inform your connections? Simple: Via Inbox > Compose message in Linkedin,

yup.
 
Caution: contains political thoughts.

I've been thinking:

- If government was acting in the public -- and not the corporate -- interest, #Occupy wouldn't be necessary.

- If journalists were adversaries to the rich and powerful -- instead of their stenographers -- #Wikileaks wouldn't be necessary.

- It's pretty unbelievable to me that a group of people who covered up pedophile priests for decades has any moral authority at all.

- I keep hearing conservatives complaining about government intruding on their religious freedoms. It's hard to take them seriously when they're doing everything they can to impose their narrow beliefs on the rest of us.

I am a sports fan. However, I think it's fair to say that NFL football is the small screen equivalent of fast food:

1) You consume way too many empty calories; you consume way too many empty minutes.

2) The menu options are limited; the entertainment options are limited (thanks, Joe Buck, for that enlightening segment highlighting how an ump's job is to clean and dry the football with that, and only that, special towel.).

3) When you're all done eating, you feel an unshakable shame at having consumed so much junk food; you need a week to recover. When you're all done watching, you feel an unshakable shame at having wasted so much time listening to Joe Buck, et al.; you need at least a week to recover.

I don't even know where to start with Overtime.

For all concerned PCVs, and RPCVs:
I have returned to the Land of Plenty, and I have not found it lacking. In fact, the cereal aisle at my local grocery store bursts with cereal goodness. Despite strong warnings of serious blowback, I entered this cereal aisle with purpose and determination. Lo, whilst the shelves loomed above, aside, and all around, I was not, in fact, overwhelmed and overrun by the options and and quantities and choices. Tony the Tiger did not knock me out with his cereal-tastic charm. The orgy of whole grains and fortified sweets failed to fell my reverse-culture shock shield. You, too, with the strength you've wrought as a PCV, can defy the fabled strength of the cereal aisle and emerge unshocked as you return to the Land of Megastores.
