“Tried to build up good b-day karma by paying for the person behind me at Starbucks. Have ruined said karma with smug twitter announcement.”

At least you recognize the circularity of your plight, and highlight the manner that technology is destroying our souls.

““@theshowerciara what do you do when your best friend asks you out, then says he texted the wrong person?” You say, “Let’s get married.””

I would say “best infographic ever”,

if I were the type for hyperbole.

Instead I will just say that it’s clever,

and something here rhymes with hyperbole.

My desire to see Despicable Me this weekend is now compounded with the knowledge that one of the characters is giving the secret hand signal for Nerdfighters.

@hankgreen was totally right! Vector IS doing the Nerdfighters salute in the movie Despicable Me!! (Sort of)

Is there a way to become an artist and skip the starving part? Maybe I’m delusional, but I think I could create something this awesome, given the time.

marjoree:

According to the artist:

This project is about concealing valuables, secrets, bad habits and personal information in our workplaces. Here, hidden spaces/messages were created within 8 general objects such as wood boards, lamps and disposable coffee cups.

How? By utilizing stereotypes and visual camouflage. We make judgments based mainly on our experiences and what we see. This dependency on visual information can create large blind spots. Thus, usual stereotypes of how we perceive solid, transparency and lighting are employed in this project to play with notions of ‘solid and void’, and ‘true and false’.

The super secret magnet drawer is my favorite.

Adorable Baby Is Adorable (via vlogbrothers)

Normally I wouldn’t link to a vlogbrothers’ video because only a select group of nerds “get it”, but I’ve had third party confirmation that you don’t have to be a vlogbrothers fan to love this video.

For those of you who _are_ NerdFighters (and therefore “get it”): Notice how Henry (the baby) stares at the camera the whole time.  He’s just like his daddy and Uncle Hank. …well, that or the Yeti is holding the camera and babies like to look at their mamas.  …and how did he get so big so fast?
