Tips from the pros: Never buy orange bath towels

The orange lint from the towels combines with condensation running down the walls from the shower and makes it look like you've pissed all over the walls.

Aggravating Aggregators

The thing I hate about news aggregating websites like reddit and digg are the same things I hate about the news media outlets like CNN: they are polluted with inaccurate, exaggerated headlines just to grab attention.

Another thing reddit and digg get wrong: they don't realize that visiting their websites should be all about the reader. Once we read a news story, it should not appear on the list anymore. We should be able to rate on who is contributing shitty stories and have their stories drop further down on our list.

And Death Shall Have No Dominion

And death shall have no dominion.
Dead men naked they shall be one
With the man in the wind and the west moon;
When their bones are picked clean and the clean bones gone,
They shall have stars at elbow and foot;
Though they go mad they shall be sane,
Though they sink through the sea they shall rise again;
Though lovers be lost love shall not;
And death shall have no dominion.

And death shall have no dominion.
Under the windings of the sea
They lying long shall not die windily;
Twisting on racks when sinews give way,
Strapped to a wheel, yet they shall not break;
Faith in their hands shall snap in two,
And the unicorn evils run them through;
Split all ends up they shan't crack;
And death shall have no dominion.

And death shall have no dominion.
No more may gulls cry at their ears
Or waves break loud on the seashores;
Where blew a flower may a flower no more
Lift its head to the blows of the rain;
Though they be mad and dead as nails,
Heads of the characters hammer through daisies;
Break in the sun till the sun breaks down,
And death shall have no dominion.

Don't wait

If you feel like telling someone you love them, even if it's out of the blue, By God, tell them!
