Breakup frustration

Breakup frustration
Breakups are frustrating… always… I believe this guy coped with his frustration pretty well, though ;)

Note: I like it even better without a coma after "humans" :>

Defending the word "suck"

Seth Stevenson tells you more than you ever wanted to know about the word "suck" in Slate (via Anil Dash).

"We could argue all day about whether sucks is an obscenity or not. [...] What's far more interesting to me is the word's utility.

Sucks is the most concise, emphatic way we have to say something is no good. As a one-syllable intransitive verb, it offers superb economy."

Read it though and you'll admit that it would suck not to have the word suck available in daily conversations. ;)

Now, I can't help but remember Adam Curry citing his daughter pushing it to the next level:

"It sucks so bad (that) it swallows!"

Ouch! :>

Dating a geek

"The nice thing about most computer boys is that they don’t typically check out other women. The downside of this is that they don’t notice the other women because they are too busy checking out people’s cell phones and iPods."

Ever wondered how your girlfriend feels about your overall geekiness? This post on "Dating an Apple Developer" [site gone] is a gem. Nice template design too.
