This thing was totally fun. It played little math games, and worked as a calculator, which meant you could do stuff like spell out words with numbers. Keep in mind that we’re talking about 1976; technology didn’t have to do as much to seem impressive.
If you’re interested in buying one of these, maybe to show your kids what used to pass for an iPad Mini, this particular calc is listed on eBay for $18.00 plus shipping.
Nice DaddyDeal on this wire shelving unit from eBay. List price is $269.99, sale price is $59.99. That’s a savings of $210.00, or 78% off. (I didn’t do the math. But I could have if I wanted to. Yes! I could. Stop saying I couldn’t. I’m good at mathing.) Free shipping too. (That one requires no math at all.)
Limited time offer, your mileage may vary, we take no responsibility for anything that happens as a result of you buying anything, we’re only providing you with a link. Still, if you happen to need some wire shelving, this looks like a darn good deal.
A TV newsperson actually said, “The underlying cause for all this, of course: young black men growing up without fathers.”
This is one of those times when I have to check the calendar to make sure that this is indeed 2014, not 1972.
Here’s the video. It’s short.

A teenager named Tom White took a selfie with Paul McCartney And Warren Buffett. Mostly it’s him standing in front of them while the pair sits on a bench. But it’s still pretty cool.

Here’s the original Instagram shot, which Tom titled “Chillin with my homies”.
I’m more than a little bit done with the word selfie. However, Tom White wins the Interwebs for the week with this shot, and briefly redeems the term “selfie”. Good for him.

Pregnancy sounds awesome if for no other reason than to sneak up on unsuspecting gents in a bar & grinding on them "Surprise! Full of baby!"

Note: As far as we know she was just making a joke, not an announcement. Just so we’re clear.
Also, for what it’s worth, Ms. Decker’s tweets are often amusing, and she seems like a nice person. For example, here’s an article about her involvement with the 2014 Special Olympics.

“You’ll be videoconferencing with someone, while editing a supply chain document with someone else in Hong Kong, while he watches his son graduate on his phone,” Mr. Singh said, noting, “you’ll need a lot of infrastructure to do that.”
No disrespect meant to Mr. Singh, but, um, what the hell? Is he actually comparing “editing a supply chain document” with a child’s graduation?
What Mr. Singh was attempting to explain, as far as I can tell, is how a businessperson (I’m going gender neutral here; apologies to Caesar and any other intelligent non-human creatures of the future) could make use of the Android operating system on multiple devices at once. But if his idea of quality parenting is not only working while your kid graduates but squeezing it in as if it were just another activity in the stream of a business day, I have to disagree. Strongly.
