“We need to make books cool again. If you go home with somebody and they don’t have books, don’t fuck them.” -John Waters

I missed this originally when it was making the rounds.

I am on the record as a John Waters fan. Ever since too long to admit.

Facebook’s bug redirects websites that use their code

tcr! · Feb 9, 2013 at 8:21 am

In One Fell Swoop, Facebook Glitch Deep-Sixes the Web

Now we may know how powerful Facebook really is.

On Thursday, many major websites were taken down by an error that stemmed from Facebook, as Internet mainstays like MSNBC.com, CNN, Yelp and New York Magazine all sent users to redirect pages almost immediately upon loading.

Upon visiting the sites, users were redirected to an error page inside of the Facebook website, which seems to suggest that the error lies in Facebook Connect, the software platform that snakes Facebook’s reach throughout the entire backbone of the Internet. Connect is seen on many third-party-publisher websites in the form of the “Like” button — especially BuzzFeed, the viral news site which relies primarily on social media to spread throughout the Web.

This is why I hate using third party JavaScript on websites, your whole site it at their mercy. Bugs happen. Don’t Use Facebook’s code. Problem solved.

In related news, Facebook study: Growth fueled by desire for self-affirmation.

I read a similar article last summer wherein the author noted that people, especially kids, are addicted to social media sites because they need to know “who wants me?”

Why are they constantly checking their phone, won’t let it stray from arm’s reach? Simple: they get instant digital gratification that their photo was liked, their tweet was retweeted and/or their video made the most-popular list.

In other words … that they’re somebody. And having hundreds, thousands, millions of people validating you is damn hard to compete with. Best advice to parents: monitor your kids online activities. They don’t need Facebook to feel good or even “okay” about themselves. They need you for that.

Uh, Anakin? Why Do You Look Like That?

The True Power of Force Ghosts

The True Power of Force Ghosts

We’re magic force ghosts.

I agree and disagree.. The old Anakin ghost in the original Episode VI is timeless, shouldn’t have been fucked with. The CGI’ed-in young Anakin in the updated version is hoaky at best.

But they are force ghosts.

I hate it when the shit-I-need-to-do part of the day doesn't end until now.

If you’re afraid of Snowpocalypse 13 and will drive 20 mph under the speed limit, just don’t get in your car.

Mac’s Trackpad Gesture to Swipe Between Pages

Mac's Trackpad Gesture to Swipe Between Pages

Maybe I just have a bad habit of dragging my fingers around on my trackpad without actually wanting to do anything. Regardless, the amount of two finger movement needed to go back and forth in webpages can’t be bigger than an inch.

I haven’t used a regular mouse for months but seriously, uncheck this if you value your sanity.
