You meet someone and they way they button their collar is different, funny, charming. Never really met anyone with a collar like that. You fall hard. And things are good. Talk of moving in together (“We’ll never mix up our shirts when we do the laundry, ha ha,” you joke, weakly), some make-outy Craigslist-browsing sessions, real momentous romance. And then: the bloom is off the rose. What’s her problem? What’s her thing with her neck? You start eyeing the deep-vees when you’re at the bar, when you’re walking down the street. Has she caught your stolen glances, does she know you’re bored, that you’re kind of done with this? No: just look at that shit-free grin: somehow she just doesn’t see it, doesn’t get it, and that makes you hate her more. Her and her repellant collars. Her touch is a bleeding rash, and it’s your throat that her buttons are strangling.

Hey, everybody! According to Leonard Maltin’s Movie Guide, Laserblast is a better sci-fi movie than Blade Runner.

Thanks to Google Books, you can do your own quick search to see what other movies are “no better than Laserblast.”

Square Is Trying To Take Magic Mainstream

parislemon:

Just in case my love letter last November didn’t make it abundantly clear, I’ll reiterate: I love Square. We’re not investors, but I wish we were. I love both the business and the product. And if that level of admiration makes this post biased, then color me conflicted.

Apparently well aware of my tweets and posts, the company brought me in to show me the latest thing they’ve been working on. It’s the evolution of their Card Case product to morph it into a more central part of their overall strategy. It’s technically called “Pay with Square”, but when installed, the new app simply reads “Square”.

That’s telling. Square, the card reader (now appropriately called “Square Card Reader”), has been the way most people think of the product and company. But that’s limiting because it’s so focused on merchants. It’s a great business, and an important one — but if Square is truly going to revolutionize payments, they need to get the consumers fully on board.

“Watch the demo video for PayPal Here. Now watch the demo for Square Register. Which point-of-sale setup looks better? Which looks easier and more fun to use, for the customer and the merchant? Which looks like something you would want in a store you owned, or in a store where you enjoyed shopping? It’s Square. Merchants place a premium on that kind of experience. They opt fun over fugly, even if it costs them five-hundredths of one percent more.” Fun Beats Fugly: Why Square Is Still Better Than PayPal | Epicenter | Wired.com

“And suddenly, I looked at the bull. He had this innocence that all animals have in their eyes, and he looked at me with this pleading. It was like a cry for justice, deep down inside of me. I describe it as being like a prayer - because if one confesses, it is hoped, that one is forgiven. I felt like the worst shit on earth.”This photo shows the collapse of Torrero Alvaro Munera, as he realized in the middle of the his last fight… the injustice to the animal. From that day forward he became an opponent of bullfights.

IBM used to give these leather-bound THINK pads out to their employees before they made laptops. Ben’s grandfather, a former IBM salesman, gave him a few that are in mint condition.
