DailyMash.UK: Women now doing lots of pointless bloke crap.

Professor Brubaker added that many women were choosing to remain single rather than have relationships with men with crap hobbies, and so were having to take up trainspotting, martial arts and collecting beer glasses themselves.” My amused emphasis.

Pacific Standard: Frequent Liars Club.

So who are these people who lie practically every time they open their mouths? In the U.K. study, ‘they are younger, more likely to be male, and have higher occupational status,’ they write.

The Smart Set: Sitting it Out.

The café is poorly positioned, poorly arranged, or too exposed to loud traffic and passing cellphone shouters. Most U.S. cafés seem to relate to street life in an adversarial manner rather as a contributor. The technical term for this sort of design, I believe, is ‘fucked-up feng shui.’” So true! Even in Santa Fe.

Mac Desks.

What always disturbs me about these kinds of sites is the lack of mess/paper. Mine is always a minor disaster area. I have an obsession with index cards at the moment; using them instead of Post-Its (no glue to gum up the works, just a couple of stacks of cards).

Mashable: If Caught, San Francisco Vandals Who Tip Smart Cars Will Face Felony Charges.

SmartCar tipping is a ‘thing’? Used to be macho to ‘lift’ the front end of a VW Bug (most of the weight’s in the rear, so any decent squatter can do it). No damage done. This is just plain vandalism.

MeFi: Welcome aboard the leaning locomotive line.

Lordy. The Santa Fe Southern tracks are overgrown now.  But check out the Maumee & Western’s tracks at 3:08. I should think running trucks would be faster/easier.

multee: Type-2 Carabiner.

Cute, but I’d still buy the real thing.  Since the ‘70’s, I’ve found carabiners one of the handiest damned things to have around. Dig in any of my bags, you’ll find one or two. Esp. D-ring locking ‘biners. Surprised, however, than none of the major climbing outfits have come up with an integrated keyring (at least, not that I’ve noticed).
