The Week: Jan. 20, 2011

I’m still at home, and my city is still covered in snow. Supposedly it will all melt today, and we’ll be left with puddles and sopping wet piles of mud, which is perhaps for the best, as that is what we are used to.

Having spent the last few days in pajamas, I’m looking forward to the sartorial challenge of dressing for 100% humidity and 4o degrees. While I look online for rainboots I can’t afford, you enjoy these links (and stay warm and dry, will you?)

I am completely digging these Movie Posters from an Alternate Timeline. Bonus points to the artist for including the late, great Sal Mineo.

Dear, lord. Kids today. Tweets from 25 angry kids who couldn’t do their homework because Wikipedia was blacked out. Really? You’re allowed to use WIKIPEDIA for homework nowadays? I … I need a cookie. (via Nomadic Matt)

—————-

And speaking of … Rand and I have been eating these giant M&M cookies all week. I’d like to say that I made a small batch, but that would be a dirty lie.

The Economist explains how Kodak went from creating one of the first digital cameras (in 1975) to being on the verge of bankruptcy. It’s truly fascinating and heartbreaking.

About 1% of the population is asexual. The BBC takes a look at what it’s like for those who don’t fall into the (aroused) 99%.

Hee hee. Absolutely loving the geekery of the comics on See Mike Draw. He dabbles in Quantum Physics, gaming, Star Trek and Star Wars. I might be in love.

My pal Deanna talks about how she’s instilling a love of travel in her kids at an early age (and she’s got them to be adventurous eaters, to boot).

I am somewhat alarmed at how much this resonated with me: 10 Things 90s Kids Will Have to Explain to Their Children.

The truth is out: most of the “push to cross the street buttons” in NYC really don’t do a damn thing. And haven’t for years. (The New York Times)

—————-

In 1904, the Jersey Shore was a very different place that the one we now know and scorn.

I flippin’ LOVE this: A comic that explores things that may be sexier than we give them credit for.

Alrighty, folks. That’s it for me this week! Next week will be chock-full of brand new adventures, photos, and desserts, and (GASP) possibly A NEW SITE DESIGN. I know. Stay tuned.
