I have that shirt. It’s really soft and comfy
I’m worried that people will start dissing Pinterest in conversation for all the wrong reasons (eg. “chicks, man” and that whole tone that’s meant to belittle women and the stuff they like) and I will have to defend it even though it’s not really my thing either and there ARE some actually shitty things posted there (like thinspo pictures).
And obviously it will be described in opposition to the largely male corners of the web like 4chan and reddit, where all the great minds of our time gather
I’m literally bracing myself
This has already happened so, you know. Use your bracing?

Shakey Graves: Feb. 9th proclaimed "SHAKEY GRAVES DAY" -
I have been bestowed with one of the most insane honors of my life by The City of Austin…
February 9, 2012 will be proclaimed “Shakey Graves Day” in Austin, Texas by the Austin Mayor.
I am scheduled to perform a song in the council chambers at City Hall at approximately 5:30…
No shit. Major congrats.
SocioSage: Why Technical Smart Asses are Technically Dumb Asses -
When I saw my friend over the holidays, I couldn’t believe my eyes. He had lost so much weight and looked so different. He was always a heavy guy. But somehow he had managed to shed the pounds.
When I asked him how he did it, he told me it was because of his consistency. Consistently working out…
Today’s quote defines the most basic elements of a programming language. Very important!
A powerful programming language is more than just a means for instructing a computer to perform tasks. The language also serves as a framework within which we organize our ideas about processes. Thus, when we describe a language, we should pay particular attention to the means that the language provides for combining simple ideas to form more complex ideas. Every powerful language has three mechanisms for accomplishing this:
- primitive expressions, which represent the simplest entities the language is concerned with,
- means of combination, by which compound elements are built from simpler ones, and
- means of abstraction, by which compound elements can be named and manipulated as units.
In programming, we deal with two kinds of elements: procedures and data. (Later we will discover that they are really not so distinct.) Informally, data is “stuff” that we want to manipulate, and procedures are descriptions of the rules for manipulating the data. Thus, any powerful programming language should be able to describe primitive data and primitive procedures and should have methods for combining and abstracting procedures and data.
