Engineering Fundamentalists

Math humor is pretty good. Scroll down to "A Math Romance." This is funny. The math major pick up lines need to be updated, though. See:
6. Wanna come back to my room....and see my 733mhz Pentium?
I would fall down laughing...

I've heard a lot about this before, but am unimpressed. First, it clearly takes a different sort of processing and/or unscrambling than regular reading--that page gives me a raging headache to read. Also I process that by the word but most of what I read by the paragraph (or nearly so). I can read it, but reading upside-down or backward (mirror-image) text is easier for me.

How to stop worrying
was in my bookmarks for the longest time. I still need to heed this advice better.

Socioeconomics, in a nutshell (funny. Probably funnier if you're a sociology geek or a Geek of All Trades).

Somehow this was cooler when Hitchcock did it.

I'm saving this because it's very important to me. I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's as a young child, and have other autoimmune disorders that make me feel as though most of my pain is my body's immune system eating away at me into an agonized shell. I don't have time to finish reading it at the moment, so it's going here as well as to a bookmark. ...OK I lied and ended up scanning the whole article anyway. My sister needs this info. Like now. No, like, a couple years ago when they took her *off* thyroid medicine.

Cooking myths--interesting. Snopes it ain't, but it's nice and specific.

This blog makes me lazy. Never had a blog where I didn't have to hand-code links before.


Curse you, StumbleUpon. Now I NEVER run out of links.
