Point of interest
Last night my girlfriend begrudgingly agreed that I could name a potential future child “Han”. A) It is scary and hilarious to talk in any real way about potential future children B) It is scare and hilarious that she would open a potential door to star wars name.
Also, I want to see the periodic table's birth...
littleorphanammo: Because how do I know it’s the legit Periodic Table. What if NEON isn’t even a gas and we’ve been deceived by it this whole time! Neon has just been pretending to be a gas this whole time! Yeah but you do that, you’ll have Niels Bohr strutting around New Hampshire saying how proud he is that he was finally able to get the periodic table to blah blah, when we all know it...

Need your help on this, tumblrfriends,
So I know I’m doing this wrong - Whenever I want to post music I’m just posting a youtube video of the song. PArt because I’m not on a computer with a music library, part because I’m lazy and this was the first idea I had when I was trying to figure this out back in the day. Is there a better way? Does anyone care?
Calling the Police Can Get You Evicted →
Across the country, a growing number of cities are adopting nuisance ordinances that impose fines and criminal penalties on landlords and tenants when the police are called too many times to the property. In Milwaukee, Wisconsin, landlords may be fined if the police are called to the premises three or more times within 30 days. While the stated goal is to deter crime and recoup costs, these...

correlationstonone: Certainly ballsy. Between this and the recent agitation over Social Security it seems that sacred cows are headed to the beef factory. I’ll be interested to see the play on this by the time the 2012 vote comes around. Will the fact that this vote went the way it did actually change the minds of any voters, or will left/right voters already stay where they are anyway?...
airwalker asked: IDEA- we should start a "good news" tumblr, just full of, you know, moderately positive to awesome news regarding social AND fiscal politics? I'm sure they're out there somewhere (the good news), and I know it'd be nice to have a one stop shop for any form of encouragement I can get. Perhaps others could get involved too?
thenotes: The Ebert review of Atlas Shrugged is not nearly as vicious as I’d hoped. Still worth it for the phrase “rumpy-pumpy”
In case you were wondering, Arizona still blows. →
“The Arizona proposal would require political parties and presidential candidates to hand in affidavits stating a candidate’s citizenship and age and to provide the candidate’s birth certificate and a sworn statement saying where the candidate has lived for 14 years. If candidates don’t have a copy of their birth certificates, they could meet the requirement by...
I am getting to that point where frustration turns...
I can’t read the news anymore. Every day it’s another story about politicians waging social policy wars under the guise of fiscal policy and having it KIND OF WORK because a far of crowd of people who I have no personal contact with buy into it. The empirical facts of my life are absolutely wonderful and I have no reason to be unhappy, other than that I read the news constantly and...
For you webcomic readers →
A friend of mine is publishing his printed comics in web comic format and creating new material. From what I’ve seen of his work it’s probably worth a glance if you are into the medium.

Spending a few moments in my afternoon listening to a very calm, friendly man explain what the hell a pivot table is. What the hell is going on with my life that I am genuinely kind of pumped about this revelation. It’s like I’m link and I just picked up a hookshot. I can do so much MORE now.

Two days a week the other department on my floor has a volunteer come in to help generate materials (packets, etc). Basically for two hours in the morning she staples shit together. So it is 8:29. She is sitting at the unused desk across the cubicle wall from mine. The desk is metal and empty. The woman staples with the fury of 1000 unpaid volunteers, forced by cort order or unknown circumstance...

Getting to work at 8:30 rather than 8am is so so so sweet. Just did the 8am thing for a year and a half. Not BAD. It was nice to beat traffic. Except this morning I hit a lucky pocket and both the bus and the train were mostly clear. Easy seats on both. No one smelled or looked at me angrily. I know that come next week this will no longer feel like Aladdin is taking me on a magical carpet ride,...
