Bad Tattoo Art Walk

The pool area of our apartments on a Saturday is more like a bad tattoo art walk – both male and female equally represented. Granted, there are very few tattoo scenarios that I won’t classify as bad tattoos.

Facebook: ‘We Will Make Our Product Worse, You Will Be Upset, And Then You Will Live With It’

…and it’s worth adding that Facebook didn’t auto-read the title of the link when I shared it on Facebook and made me have to change it manually. Shoddy work, but I guess I have to live with it, if I want to share that link with everyone.

But in all seriousness, The Onion hit the nail on the head… again. Every time there is a new crappy change, I see lots of empty threats from friends to quit Facebook if it is not changed back. Right.

Clinton did it. It’s part of politics now. You gotta let the other side know why your side is so much better than they are.

Dear Customer Who Stuck Up For His Little Brother

I’ve had a few friends post this in the past day. I’m not trying to argue with the premise of the story, but it sounds like a fabricated story, or a greatly embellished story, written by an aspiring author/journalist hoping to get her blog noticed. Start to finish, I was sure I was reading a short story. My guess, the dad and kid argued briefly over which controller to get, and this lady crafted it into a full-fledged fight, added some background details, and used it to promote her own agenda. Not that the fine writers at the Huffington Post would ever post something blatantly promoting a left-wing agenda.
