  1. Doomsday Prep for the Super-Rich - The New Yorker

    Grimly fascinating of course. At least there are a few people quoted suggesting that maybe spending money on making society less like to collapse might be a good idea instead. (via Kottke)

  2. The Linguistic Evolution of ‘Like’ - The Atlantic

    On the recent uses of “like” in English. More interesting than I expected and, thankfully, not at all condescending.

  3. The Disquiet Junto Project List (0001 – 0265 …)

    A weekly assignment for composing music. “The purpose of the group is to use constraints to stoke creativity.” A nice list of all the projects. (via Russell Davies)

    “Daddy, what did you do to halt the rise of fascism?”
    [Me, miming:] “Who are you?! I don’t have any children!”

    I’m having a holiday from computers this week and doing a course in corporeal mime.

    Ahahahahahaha. How out of touch are you? I left 12 years ago and I'm STILL paying for it.…

    Being in the EU is a bit like being a student in a College. While you attend you have to pay fees-when you leave you stop paying.
