Books and weight reps are alike.
There is light ones and there is heavy ones. The light ones pile up & feel good or bad, important or not. Heavy ones are those that really matter, but you're never going to get them without pilling up the light ones. Heavy ones will give you an emotional, intellectual &/or physical orgasm that no light ones could ever give you, but without pilling up those light ones you will collapse under the heavy ones. Light ones are the journey, heavy ones the enlightenment.
"As an artist that stores their art on twitter and a lot of art related sites. This troubles me deeply. Imagine if Twitter or even Youtube did this. Every video gone forever."
And just holy yikes, y'all. This gave me palpitations.
Please don't think of uploading/sharing stuff as "storing" it on any of these sites--twitter/tumblr/etc. There's no good retrieval process, you don't control compression, etc. It's nice to access stuff one's shared for resharing but not storage.
imagine if the gmail webapp didn't exist and you instead had a single page with links to other pages to individually load your email. no keybinds, no lazy loading, no toggling images, no attachment warnings... just pure HTTP. it would be beautiful. so minimalist that you could run it on a flip phone. and isn't that what we all want? in today's modern day and age, where mobile phones are massively more powerful than the computers of two decades ago, we *need* to ensure that every website runs like butter on a pentium II PC with 64MB of memory, no matter how complex. what's that? you want to make a video streaming service? fuck you. we already have icecast and other internet streaming standards. provide a link to the stream and a download link for VLC. this is how things should be
‘I have to perform to save my life’: Medical bills kept rock legend Dick Dale touring till the end
“I can’t stop touring because I will die. Physically and literally, I will die.”
MySpace has lost all music uploaded between 2003 and 2015.
There are no backups.
Don't trust cloud services. One day Facebook, Instagram and Tumblr will be gone too. YouTube will shut down, and so will Google Drive, OneDrive and DropBox.
Always keep a local copy.
We saw the cutest thing today when we were in the metro.
We walked past a #blind woman who was feeling her way around with her walking stick. As we were waiting by the turnstiles for our bus, we see another blind man waiting at the turnstiles. When he hears a walking stick swinging around, he taps his on the ground three times. The woman tapped hers three times in response and then both their faces lit up.
They ran to each other, embraced, felt their faces, and kissed.

...This comic makes an excellent point. Why not just skip college and pay for private tutoring? Apparently you'll still come out ahead. XD
