The video sweeping the internet | comments

Since part of my job is to educate around here, here's this video of a bullied kid losing it and totally body slamming the kid bullying him

Casey Heynes became a Penny Arcade Comic, has been covered by news channels and now will be remixed into Street Fighter videos.

Alvin Wong is the happiest man in the world (statistically) Saturday, March 19, 2011 | comments

There was an article in the NYTimes about how, statistically, when you look at demographics, the happiest person in America would be
-A Man
-Observant Jew
-At least 65
-Has children,
-Lives in Hawaii,
-Running his own business
-Bringing in an income of more than $120,000 a year

And they found him. You can read about that on the NYTimes website. They now [as shared by Bridget on Google Reader] are also looking to find the least happy person in America

I wouldn't believe that this could happen if it hadn't just happened Tuesday, March 15, 2011 | comments

Ok, maybe that headline sounds too exciting for what this story is, but yesterday I set up the coffee machine here at work so that it would automatically make coffee at 9:00am and then I would have delicious coffee to start the day.

I have an opaque mug and I usually use it for a week or so before bringing it home to swap out with a clean mug. It's some sort of ceramic that sort of picks up the brown of the coffee until it's washed and then it all comes off. Our coffee machine works like a soda fountain: you just press your cup against it and the coffee you made comes out from the inside.

So anyhow I had one mug of coffee and thought that it tasted weird but still went back for more. It wasn't until I was halfway through that second cup that I realized that I wasn't drinking coffee. I had forgotten to put the ground coffee into the machine so I was just drinking hot water that had picked up weak coffee flavorings from the machine and from my mug.
