Thursday Things You Might Find Interesting...

NPR Music currently has a segment for their opinion of the Best Summer Songs, including one for the not-so-popular people entitled Party of One: Misery Alienates Company. Good tunes, good times!

Girl Vs. Robot is a site of daily political cartoons with interesting articles to boot. Check out today's cartoon and commentary about a racist swim club that won't allow any African Americans in and get pissed off as much as I am!

For anyone on Facebook, you've probably already encountered the horror of having a relative (namely an older relative ie. parent, grandparent, aunt or uncle) try to add you as a friend, thus finding out a lot more about you than you're willing to share with them. This site: Oh Crap. My Parents Joined Facebook gives you a chance to exploit these horrors with the rest of the inter-world. Page 2 had some of my personal favorites posted.

There's an article in the NY Times about a woman who moved to the city recently from Portland and is loving her tiny apartment. Because as i've always suspected, having even half the space I do now but living in NYC would surely beat living in Miami any day.

The BBC has an article about how astronomers have found a way to see some of the universe's oldest stars ever. Maybe a glimpse in to how we got started is on the way? Are you there God? It's me, the agnostic earthling.

We have a new word, folks. Thanks to Merriam-Webster and the Bush administration, Waterboarding is now officially part of the English vernacular! *facepalm*

Want a real reason to watch Top Chef this season? How about long time animal lover and vegan Natalie Portman as a guest?? Excited to see how this turns out!
