LOLfeeds turns any RSS feed into cat macros. For example: yours truly, Ask Metafilter, or Craigslist personals.

Doctor’s notes

One of ignatz‘s Laws of the Internet is as follows: Every text field will be treated as a means of communicating with the little men who run the Internet. A post today on the excellent Museum of Hoaxes website brought to my attention an earlier post on that same site. That post was entitled “Doctor’s […]

Crepuscular time

A thought that caught my eye in this Metafilter thread: A person’s success in life is determined by what he does between 5 and 10 pm. A bit overly generalized, yes (but not so much in the context of that thread), but I like the sentiment behind it. Especially lately I’m bad for leaving work, […]
