Puddy: Seriously, is this the best okra you’ve ever had, or what?
Elaine: Mmm. De-lish.
Puddy: Delish?
Elaine: Delish. You know, short for delicious.
Puddy: Oh, like scrump.
Elaine: …Yeah.
Puddy: I’m gonna be late. See ya later.

A boy left his bike chained to a tree when he went away to war in 1914. He never returned, leaving the tree no choice but to grow around the bike.

Report from Soho Road in Handsworth that the local Sikh and Muslim youth have aligned on the streets to defend the businesses from rioters. 

Also, seems the bull picture is definitely fake as it’s a different shop behind there now! So, small piece of good news there! Kudos to the people that spotted that one!

This is genuinely Microsoft’s idea of a “streamlined”, “optimized” UI for Windows Explorer. They were so proud of it they wrote a blog post about it.
The post is a sort of masterpiece of crazy rationalization, but I think my favourite part may be this screenshot:

Here, they proudly overlay the UI with data from their research into how often various commands are used. They use this to show that “the commands that make up 84% of what users do in Explorer are now in one tab”. But the more important thing is that the remaining 50% of the bar is taken up by buttons that nobody will ever use, ever, even according to Microsoft’s own research. And yet somehow they remain smack bang in the middle of the interface. The insanity is further enriched by this graph:

Again, this is Microsoft’s own research, cited in the same post: nobody — almost literally 0% of users — uses the menu bar, and only 10% of users use the command bar. Nearly everybody is using the context menu or hotkeys. So the solution, obviously, is to make both the menu bar and the command bar bigger and more prominent. Right?
Microsoft UI has officially entered the realm of self-parody.

A.J. Daulerio’s buzzsaw tattoo, which you can see him procuring in the above photo, will turn three years old this January. It has been that long since I won the Mayor’s Bet with Daulerio, thanks to the Arizona Cardinals’ stunning victory over the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC Championship Game. (You may remember that there was also a Cookie Sheet involved.)
Well, the series we’ve each been both looking forward to and dreading for more than a decade now is finally here: My St. Louis Cardinals and his Philadelphia Phillies meet in the National League Divisional Series in about an hour. Another wager felt appropriate. But we are older now, more mature, and the stakes needed to reflect this process of growth. Also: I am not getting a goddamn tattoo. I am not an idiot.
Thus:
If the Philadelphia Phillies beat the St. Louis Cardinals in the NLDS, Will Leitch must:
*** Must make a $100 donation to the charity of A.J. Daulerio’s choice.*** As dictated by Mayor’s Bet tradition, must take A.J. Daulerio out for a romantic sushi dinner.*** Let himself be hit by a 90 mile-per-hour fastball from a pitching machine, on camera.
If the St. Louis Cardinals beat the Philadelphia Phillies in the NLDS, A.J. Daulerio must:
*** Must make a $100 donation to the charity of Will Leitch’s choice.*** As dictated by Mayor’s Bet tradition, must take Will Leitch out for a romantic sushi dinner.*** Must allow Will Leitch to tase him, on camera.
So, there’s the bet. Go Cardinals. Please.
