this seriously just about made me vomit. GIF’s galore coming out of your screen, chasing you down, blinking and strobing their way into your brain. …but you really have to see it to believe it. (via me. I found it. I swear.)
I haz a big thing for freckles.
They’re just so darn cute.
Yumapalooza up in here. I cannot stand to look at this for more than forty-five seconds. I start to drool. (via nickmcglynn)
Single funniest text message I've ever recieved...
Spencer: I am taking a dump while eating a Taco Bell burrito. I can't decide if this is in the top 5 greatest or worse moments of my life.
One of those times where you sit back in your chair because something - a photo, an expression, a familiar phrase, the inflection your friend just put on the very end of the word “Charlemange” - stopped you and got you thinking. Thinking about a moment very familiar to you, but far-off and distant now. And so, far off in the cobwebs, you start digging; trying to find whatever it...

UPDATE: Zooey Deschanel Engaged To Ben Gibbard. →
WHAT? NO frickin’ way. allisonweiss: (via drned) THIS IS THE MOST POST-MAINSTREAM INDIE ROCK COUPLING OF ALL TIME. So crazy. I didn’t even know they were dating. I didn’t care. Until now! Way to go, Ben Gibbard. Way to go.
It’s official. The world is going crazy. …The Russians think the current recession is going to cause a second civil war in the United States in 2010, and that as a result the US will split into six or seven different nations (WSJ). …In the US and across the world, “real life superheroes” — inspired by the Marvel/DC movies and their success — are coming...
Vice #1: Red Wine
“In moderation”, red wine has been known to be a healthy and cleansing way to finish your day, aiding in digestion and the breaking-down of fats. Beyond “moderation,” it has been known to cause feelings of extreme elation along with illusions of weightlessness and invincibility. These are generally followed closely by blindingly powerful headaches, thoughts of suicide, or...
Dave Chappelle's "I Know Black People"
Q: Why do black people love menthol cigarettes?
A: I don't...I don't have any idea.
Q: That is correct!

Whoa! Surpriiiiiiise. I'm "Brain Balanced"
Right v. Left brain test found here. “That means you are able to draw on the strengths of both the right and left hemispheres of your brain, depending upon a given situation. When you need to explain a complicated process to someone, or plan a detailed vacation, the left hemisphere of your brain, which is responsible for your ability to solve problems logically, might kick in. But if you...

I’m actually surprised to say that I scored pretty well, 96.07 percent correct Avg error: 7 mi. Time: 280 seconds 49 perfect/51 turns
Heck, I'd eat a dog...or a cat.
I like to think that I’m basically an “animal lover.” And if not an “animal lover,” then definitely a “person who is extremely fond of animals.” But When I see those commercials with Sarah McLachlan about animal abandonment and cruelty, complaining about how many Animals don’t have caregivers, I gotta say that I don’t honestly care that much. ...
Worth Seeing: You never get to old for Mr Rogers. He has something to teach us all, even US Senators.

And I’m really into the idea of a handmade, locally fabricated, non corporate, fixed-gear urban roadster (hence this, this, this, and even this). Thus, anything I find on the subject finds it’s way on here, as does many a rant about how amazing cycling is.
A sure fire sign you're a douchebag
if in order to stress to the world that you are the proud owner of an iphone, you display your contact phone info on your website, tumblog, twitter, business card, etc as “iphone: 000-000-0000.” it’s a damn cell phone people. Get over yourself.
Why "Sesame" Street?
It just occured to me that “Sesame Street” is a very odd street name for a street, much less for a kids tv show…doesn’t make sense to me at all now that I’ve actually thought about it. Why would someone name a child’s tv show after a street named after something that goes on top of a hamburger bun? Why (as a kid) did I dream of joining the coloful puppets and...

If anyone remembers this story about the boy and girl who fell in love through the fence of a Nazi concentration camp, apparently the book deal has been made, and it’s coming out Feb. 3rd. The original story, from CNN, is here - 100% worth reading. If you haven’t seen the article yet, please do yourself a favor and read it.

I’m sure tons of people already know about it, but I just caught on a little while ago… Gimp is a downloadable app that does a bunch of the same things as Photoshop for free. Photoshop =$594.00 Gimp = $0.00 Hmmmm…. And it’s Mac/Windows/Linux compatible. If you’re a Mac user, you’ll just need the X11 add-on (which is available on the install-DVD that came...
I’ve been a happily self-aware caffeine addict for ‘round about 8 years now. My general routine is to have at least have 2 cups in the morning to start the morning off right. It’s beyond a luxury or a healthy indulgence - it’s a full on addictive must for me. If I don’t get my morning fix, I’ll usually have a headache by lunch. But if for some reason I...
