A Republican's advice for Obama - CNN.com →
nedhepburn: pretty good advice… This is important because of the fifth bullet point, which is the first time in history a Republican has ever considered the inner city as a problem worth fixing.
Bill O'Reilly: South Side of Chicago like Haiti →
Alright, yeah, this was a stupid thing to say and he’s a stupid person for saying it, but he’s not totally wrong. Both of these places were left for dead by Whitey, and they could both kick Bill O’Reilly’s ass in a street fight. So let’s not go *too* nuts. fuckkyeahchicago:
my favorite thing about NYC secessionists
is that when people ask what the name of their state would be, they say they were New York first and Upstate should have to change their name instead. I mean, it’s true.

Analyst: AT&T needs to spend US$5B to catch up →
dancomono: I’m too lazy too look up what large country’s GDP this is probably equal to, so I’ll just say that I hate AT&T. Depends on which list you go by, but Kyrgyzstan is probably your best bet.

hey i'm back from boston
did anything cool happen on the internet
I have to drive to Boston tomorrow for work, so of course I went over to NPR’s site to see what stations were on the way. It’s neat that they let you map that out, but what would be awesome is if they could get every station’s schedule published in one data store, and let you enter your time of departure, so that you could see exactly what shows will be on each station once...

Scotland noooo! There’s a bunch of dudes on Facebook planning on showing up to curl anyway, which is awesome. Curling! I wish there was a curling club closer than Pittsburgh.
Sample Vancouver 2010 Prices
aslbgh: Bobsled: $30-85 Curling: $65-120 Luge: $30-85 Speed Skating: $50-185 I think it’d be interesting to compare these prices with Winter Olympics in other places, because I think proportionally the curling is probably a lot more in Canada than it would be somewhere else.

oldtobegin: so i’m picking through the belle and sebastian catalog on lala and listening to my favorite of their songs. Fun fact: “Sleep The Clock Around” was the last song I ever played as a DJ on both of my college radio stations. So basically, hell yeah that you’re starting with it.

Legion leaving Fighting Illini →
Florida International will be his third team in three years, none of which are the one he originally committed to in high school. This doesn’t seem like the best strategy for convincing NBA scouts you’re the real thing.
