I like to bargain shop with my groceries, because quality roulette is a very low-risk way to stave off the bores of routine. And one thing I like to pick up at my local Grocery Outlet is some sort of snack for next to the computer, and lately that’s meant trail mix. Trail mix is the frugal snack compared to bulk nuts - with expensive cashews or pistachios rare among the far cheaper raisins and peanuts.
So I was in the protein and DVDs section of GrossOut and my eyes spotted a large supply of very large (1.6 lb) cans of nuts with a red cap, towering over other nut packages. Buying in bulk was appealing, given my rate of computer-side snacking, so I check the price - $2.49. That’s a trail mix price for a super-sized can of nuts.
There must be something seriously wrong with these peanuts.Read more
We zoom in from Google Earth to a communal hacker space in Silicon Valley. Within 15 seconds, Nash (Karan Soni) has deemed the workspace “unacceptable” and stomps to the door. And in 15 seconds, we have our first signal to the tone of Betas. The listening to soothing music to try to drown out distractions is real to all of us. But hacker spaces are generally considered to be highly productive environments (though easily mistaken for start-ups, which Nerf gun battles are commonplace). Is this the creators breaking any expectations of realism right off the bat, signalling comedic liberty with elements of start-up life? Or a simple plot contrivance to keep the cast at a low rung of start-up experience, but still signalling to the young, loose workspace of start-ups?
“We’ve done it,” the scientists proclaimed.
“The map of most average human genome is complete.”
What to call the pinnacle of normalcy?
When Norm was born, there were national news broadcasts
Live on the scene, with breaking developments of ordinary.
While Norm grew up, he was a local celebrity
His mundane home highlighted on any map.
When Norm graduated, his name rang a bell
“Where is Norm now?” was on many’s minds.
When Norm got a job, his face looked familiar
“Do I know you?” “Have we met?”
And that’s as much as we know about Norm
He’s been missing since then.
God grant me the serenity to accept the problems I cannot fix with a start-up;
the courage to start-up the problems I can;
and wisdom to know the difference.
76% of the country thinks a one-loss team dropped a game “for funsies.”
24% of the country be sippin’ on haterade.
Ever since we all started tweeting while watching TV, thousands of media types have been trying to come up with a way to get you on their team. Some sent you stickers, some sent you gift cards, some tried to give you content around the episode you were watching (granted, some methods are more effective than others). Ultimately, I agree with my founder Somrat Niyogi who rightly pointed at switching cost from Twitter as the culprit turning this promising space into a field of duds.
Today, I’m going to give you a few reasons why you should try out that social TV app.Read more
