Measure Your Stress Level with This Flowchart – I'm stressed right now. I was recently asked how stressed I am on a scale of 1 to 10. I guessed around a three, and the response was, "Oh…so not that stressed after all."

But here's how I measure stress:
10–currently being eaten by a shark
9– currently being chased by a bear
8–currently upside down in a car that is still rolling.

So, yeah…three sounds about right.

A matter of time before someone stages a cage fight on High Roller. At least they were lovers, not fighters. – I, for one, am tired of people coming here and defiling our otherwise wholesome attractions.

Learning Is Not Linear: How Unschooled Children Learn – Basically, the exact same way all of us learn before we go to school and after we go to school. What's so magic about those 12-16 years that requires a change in plan?

Hilarious: Donald Trump Enters the Game of Thrones–Someone was in their cups when they wrote this.

There used to be a website called Recipe Chimp that let you enter ingredients and spit back a recipe for something delicious you could make from those ingredients.

How about this instead…

Enter the number of neighbors you think are home right now, and the site will give you a recipe for something delicious you can make out of items you can likely borrow from each of those neighbors.

 

Running, Drinking and Nerding Out Link Dump

Long Distance Half-Steppers

“Self-knowledge is a bitch.”

I have been all of these people at one point or another, and I’ve definitely run with all of them. There are more I could add to the list too!

Desmos Graphing Calculator – I am in nerd heaven. I can’t wait to play with this gadget. I can’t wait until my kids are learning higher math and we can do this together!!!

Get Drunk Not Fat – My knees wish my brain had been supplied this information at an earlier date.

‘Til debt do us part :

Leverage is leverage, and leverage always brings with it increased risk.

True, but what scares me most is the amount of this “leverage” that represents items of depreciating value or Super Value Meals. And that’s just on the consumer debt.

HTC EVO 3D Review – Hope to get mine before it’s obsolete.

iDoneThis – Very cool, very simple service. Every day it sends you an email, and you respond with that you did. Makes TPS reports a snap.

The 5 Switches of Manliness: Provide – Haven’t even read this one yet, but if it’s half as good as the others, it’s a must read.

India’s $35 Android Tablet Finally Ready Ship – Would be hard not to buy at least one of these. HT @_Neville

High-Pressure Tactics Culture At Groupon – More dumping on Groupon. The more details I read about this company, the more I am wary of it.

Forget Student Loans, And Maybe Even College – Can’t say it enough times–student loans are horrible. The whole industry is basically pay day lending that you can’t bankrupt.

Short Groupon – “Groupon is essentially holding a portfolio of loans backed by the receivables of small businesses. If a business goes under, consumers will come back to Groupon for their money back. Unless Groupon is actually doing credit assessments on businesses that it chooses to feature, this is a big risk for Groupon.”

Perfect Iced Coffee – A couple of weeks ago, I decided to give up coffee for 30 days. This post is the first time I’ve regretted that decision.

Nonacademic Success, Attacking Social Networking, and More!

Nonacademic Skills Key to Success – Crazy idea…let’s assign two people to each child born in this country to make sure they learn these intangible skills like reliability and work ethic. We can call these people “Parents”. Even if we can only get one good one per child, it will be progress.

16 Yummy Slow Cooker Desserts – Tadow!

Ransoming Someone for an XBox 360? – HT @MichaelSilence If you owe me ~$100 (and you know who you are), hope we don’t have a mutual friend who owns an Atari 2600 with several cartridges.

Social networking under fresh attack – I don’t think it’s the “devil in his self”. Obviously. But, I doubt I’m only person in the world who thinks it’s rude to see a person I’m sitting with IRL grab their phone every time it makes the slightest little noise. The message there is, “I’m not sure who this is or what they want, but it has to be more interesting than this.” It’s not so much the social media and texting I get annoyed with so much as it is the inability for people to sit comfortably without it.

Stuff You Should See– December 9th through December 15th

How to Use Gmail as Your Central, Universal Communications Hub – One of these days, one of these days…I'm going to implement these suggestions. At least the ones I haven't already implemented.

End of the Culture Wars? – Really interesting take on the widening gap between the moderately educated and the highly educated. The numbers on divorce rates alone are pretty staggering.

Toasted Coconut Cake with Coconut Filling and Coconut Buttercream – I'm thinking of throwing down again.

The Crisis of the Middle – hmmm….interesting.

Montessori at Home? – We're working up a Montessori area right now. The materials are the catch for us, but you can build as you go.

Stuff You Should See– October 13th through October 28th

‘Stranger Danger’ and the Decline of Halloween – "We can kill off Halloween, or we can accept that it isn't dangerous and give it back to the kids. Then maybe we can start giving them back the rest of their childhoods, too."

Amazing Beans: Black Lentils/Kidney/Garbanzo – Giving this a shot soon.

YOU are Superman – Mamapedia™ Voices – “If eight park moms and one visionary principal could pull our little neighborhood school out of its twenty-five year nose-dive, surely others could do the same thing. If Waiting for Superman could spark a national grassroots school reform movement that would pull us all out of the giant mess we’re in, now wouldn’t that be something?”

A ‘Do-Over’ on the Mortgage Market? Project Mayhem Fallout – I won't even entertain the idea, but it's an entertaining read.

If Every Website Got A Dramatic Movie Adaptation – Damned clever.

3 Simple Ways You’re Missing Out On Mobile – Great post by my buddy Gavin!

Stuff You Should See– June 29th through July 29th

Free Nature Work/Sleep Mix You Control – Awesome…sometime music is too distracting. Want to try an mp3 for running.

Gmote Turns Your Android Phone Into a Remote Control for Your PC

TweetEffect- When did you lose or gain twitter followers?

FreshBooks – Online Invoicing, Time Tracking & Billing Software – Pretty cool for people who are one man shows.

Hey, Michael Moore, I’m calling you out – Random Mumblings – Big stick time.

Shit My Kids Ruined – I caint have nuthin' nice.

Appcelerator Developer Center – This looks cool…write your app in JavaScript and Appcelerator maps it to native code for multiple mobile platforms. Hmm…..

101 Fast Recipes for Grilling – Grillicious! Can't wait to get back to regular grilling. And by that I mean entertaining the kids in the pool while the real grill master does her thing.

Dishwasher Rules to Clean By – The "Quick Rinse" is my new favorite dishwasher feature.

Fannie Mae Cracks Down on Strategic Default – Do you really need someone to tell you that "strategically" defaulting on a mortgage is wrong? Sorry, but I don't feel pity for someone who is behind on their mortgage while they have sea doos and dirt bikes in their garage.

Even A Monkey Could Cook This Meal

RecipeChimp is a great idea–give it the ingredients you have available and it will give you back a recipe you can make with those ingrediets. But there’s a catch…

If you were too lazy to go to the store and buy food, you are probably too lazy to type in a bunch of ingredients into your laptop.

It’d be even better if there were an iPhone Android app that let you stand right there in the pantry/fridge and scan the barcodes of the stuff you have.

I will give a shiny quarter to the first person who can point out what is so misleading about the title of this post.

Stuff You Should See– December 30th through January 3rd

Do More, Buy Less – A huge positive from a recession. This goes hand in hand with the fact that people are saving more. I’m still amazed that people at the top continue to contend that the answer is to “get credit flowing again.” Well, I’m not really shocked that they say it. That’s what benefits them and their friends. But I am amazed that so many people buy it hook line and sinker.

Google and HTC Working On a Chrome OS Tablet – Want.

Crunchy French Toast – This is now the official French toast recipe of our household. We’ll only be using the cream after long runs though.

50 Things we know now that we didn’t know this time last year – To be honest, I’ve suspected at least 34 of these things for a few years. I just wasn’t able to prove them.

Global Warming Won’t Prevent Ice Age – If it ain’t one thing with these climate fanboys it’s another.

Four UT basketball players face drug and weapon charges – I have an idea for college basketball players with aspirations of making it to the NBA. Lay off the weed for just four years. Once you get into the NBA you can do pretty much anything you want. I don’t really care what you do as long as you aren’t hurting anyone, but if you’re going to take the money you have to play by the rules made by the people who write the checks.

Web 2.0 Suicide Machine – What we really need is a Web 2.0 homicide machine. Only those with strong passwords survive!!!! I predict Web 2.0 homicide will be a big trend in 2010.
