And really probably shouldn't be.
A flowchart to help you answer one of the tougher questions in life.
Mother Nature is turning trash into treasure. For almost twenty years, residents of Fort Bragg, CA used the ocean as a receptacle for household garbage. The practice was shut down in the sixties and ever since then the surf has been beating the glass shards into beautiful submission.
"Chenning," or taking photos with the disembodied head of Gawker's Adrian Chen after he writes an article crying about your "fake internet craze" was a popular way of taking pictures in the 1920s.

I, for one, am not sure if I welcome our new cybernetic overlords. Developed by engineers as a way to monitor vitals or speak with computers via movement, these circuits only last for a couple of days...for now.
This list is like MTV's Diary... You think you know, but you have no idea.
Here are some things you see when you wake up at the Gathering. Just glad I woke up in my tent.
This guy is too excited about the Power Rangers. There's no other way to put it. He needs to calm down.
Well this is both sad and heartwarming. Technology is a crazy, crazy thing.
It's two weeks 'til we get more Doctor Who on BBC America, but they're going to be tiding us over with a series of specials (beginning tomorrow - Saturday, August 13, at 9/8c) about the 11th Doctor and his friends (and enemies).
