In searching and searching for an old dog toy I was seeking to replace, I found a Chinese website that showed a picture of that EXACT hard-to-find vinyl football. I checked the dimensions, saw 12x7x7 and thought that while maybe slightly bigger than I was thinking it was, that was probably about the right size [...]
The internet is a wicked thing. It can help convince you that your headache combined with an ant bite on your toe-web is actually a rare form of cancer. It can ruin your whole day through obsessive learning through a wikipedia link spiral or, less constructively, an entertaining youtube channel. What the internet showed me [...]
I’m still coming to terms with the fact that Google has decided, so very unceremoniously, to kill Reader on July 1. I thought to myself: “No, I can handle this. I’M AN ADULT!” Well, one or both of those thoughts turned out to be incorrect. I thought I would jump seamlessly over to one of [...]
