I Gave My Love a Cherry...
I notice upon reflection that there is too much snark in today's offerings. I apologize unreservedly to Sister Bernadette Mary from first grade. The rest of you can lump it.
My friend Bird Dog is looking for suggestions for where to go in New England.
I suggest: around.
My friend Gerard has a time-honored list of preparations for spring. Get Ready... Get Set... Spring!
Apparently spring is a like a barium enema.
Mozilla not accepted for Google Summer of Code 2015
Firefox was a cat's paw Google used to beat Microsoft. They have their own browser now. I wouldn't buy any green bananas if I "worked" at Mozilla.

I wanna party with Orson Welles. I mean, come on, he's wearing a circus tent for crissakes; he must be fun.
The Eiffel Tower has new wind turbines, and they're beautiful.
No, they're not. I do like the idea of giving the Mona Lisa a boob job though. And would it hurt to squirt a little Restylane into her lips? They're nowhere near big enough for today's "lamprey woman" style.
What It’s Like to Need Hardly Any Sleep
NY Mag doesn't have any editors, I guess. They misspelled "get" as "need."
A substantial amount of empirical research suggests that cognitive ability test scores are increasing by approximately three IQ points per decade.
Good news people: If you're a salutatorian, in only a century or so, you'll be able to catch up with my son the weirdo. Good for you. Now go ask Siri what a salutatorian is.

Keep on playing World of Warcraft on your iPhone. It's making you more smarterer by the minute. It says so in this document you're unable to understand. Public schools hand out little handheld television sets and call them computers because they have a lower case "i" in their name. It's much the same thing. The smart kids are in Asia putting them together.
