English Russia

One of my favorite websites from long ago - I forgot about it for a while, but pleased to see it is still full of wacky Russian stuff, good, bad, and odd. Mostly odd.

Best Pickup Lines

Reddit is a site which I heard about years ago and kept hearing about. "It's popular!", I kept hearing. The site itself looked like crap though, so I never got into it.

Years later I got bored and started reading more of it, and discovered a couple of 'subreddits' which I now read almost every day. One of these is 'Ask Reddit' and every so often it has classic threads which are informative and/or can keep one entertained for hours.

Japan Probe

Japan seems like a pretty unique place. This site probes it!

"We have created this site to act as a blog-based reservoir of information, entertainment, and news on the more interesting aspects of Japan. Some of the material we post will be of our own original creation, and some of it will be submitted by others or linked from other sites on the net."

Here's another tiny ARM computer with pretty good specs for a reasonable price, much like the CuBox posted about some months ago.

Noise - Worse Than Most Things

noise

It's never nice to find these things out for ourselves, but I for one certainly don't appreciate loud noise!

"Some bad circumstances or events have enduring effects. Consider loud, unpleasant noises, which people dislike a lot, and which they don't dislike much less as time passes."

Trickle Down ... Not So Much

trickle

Far from being a left wing complaint against rich people for the sake of complaining, this is a well reasoned article highlighting the independence of our economy.

The main point is the rich often ignite an cycle of wealth by having an idea and are thus vital and necessary - however without the supporting structure of healthy employees who can actually afford to buy things, the cycle doesn't work out too well - much like the seed is vital to the growing of the tree, but without water and air, it won't grow.
