Follow Me!

And yes, I mean that in the metaphorical blog sense, but I really want you to do it!  If you are reading this post right now, and you do not already “Follow Me”, follow the following directions (actually, read the directions first, then follow them):

1) Scroll down the right side of the blog and stop when you see  FOLLOWERS in blue
2) Click on the little gray button that says “Follow”
3) Follow the rest of the instructions to add your name and picture if you are so inclined

Or, if you aren’t into actually coming to this site regularly (Tom), but want to get updates via an RSS Feed, scroll down a little bit more and add my blog to your Reader of choice!

Now that the word “follow” has basically lost all meaning from heavy repetition, the reason I want you to officially follow me is purely for my own self esteem.  So if you don’t give a rat’s ass about my self esteem, feel free to ignore this entire post. And if you do care, I just gave you the easiest way to show me!

Thaaaaaaaaanks 🙂

All Correct!

Saw this blurb on BoingBoing and thought it was interesting.  Use this tidbit to amaze your friends at your next dinner party. Aaaaand, you’re welcome.

“Today, “OK” is probably one of the most universally known English words. But it originated in 1839 as a joke, mocking the semi-literate, who supposedly spelled “all correct” as “oll korrect”. Basically, OK was the “Get a Brain! MORANS” of its day.

Ready, Set, Go!

Just found this via BoingBoing.net….a new twist on the old traffic light.  Obviously there are some major design flaws (colorblind people? if the light is yellow twice would you start speeding up or start slowing down?) but otherwise I think the hourglass and countdown ideas have merit!

Check out the original site here for more details.  Some of the comments are interesting too.
