God dammit, Duncan! Every time I’m feeling sorry for myself, you pop up and make me look like a real jerk. Here I am, freezing my ass off and not wanting to have to walk on my two legs to my car and drive to the office. Here I am, laying on the couch because I’ve already decided that I’m not showering this morning because fuck how cold it will be when I get out. And then there you are, two legs and happy as can be. There you are, instead of fearing the snow you’re yelling “GUYS! OUTSIDE! LOOK AT THIS STUFF! BEST DAY EVER!!!!” I swear I’m going to start enjoying life as much as you do, Duncan. I swear.
(Source) — Facebook is considering making a big change. Developers are experimenting with a “sympathize” button, so your friends can show their support without having to “like” something, according to a new report. The Huffington Post reports developers liked the idea of the “sympathize” button when an engineer introduced it at a recent Facebook hackathon. Many users were hoping Facebook would add a “dislike” button. But the social media site has reportedly chosen to go with sympathy instead of negativity. Developers say they idea would be to give users the option of choosing how they’re feeling from a drop down list of emotions. If you select a negative emotion like “depressed,” then the “like” button would automatically be changed to “sympathize.”
Just putting this out there: if any of my Facebook friends ever intentionally select their status to “depressed” and hope that people “sympathize” with their post then they’re getting unfriended astoundingly fast. Going through all that is begging for attention. Yeah, it’s understood that basically every status update is saying either “look at me!!!” or “feel bad for me!!!” but it’s usually more veiled than that. There’s usually some attempt to mask it. Switching up the emotions on a post is just coming out and saying “my life sucks and the only time I don’t want to kill myself is when I’m on the internet so please sympathize with me!”

I have an honest question. If the XFL launched now do you think it could work? Like Vince McMahon was ahead of his time. He launched the XFL too soon. America wasn’t ready for it. The NFL hadn’t turned into a flag football league yet. But what about now? The timing is perfect. The American public is begging for an alternative. A league where you can actually still tackle somebody without it being a penalty. We don’t need all the quirky gimmicks the original XFL had. Although I still like the fumble drill to see who get the ball first, but everything else can just be what the NFL used to be like 10 years ago. Make players sign waivers that they understand there is risk involved and can’t sue if they get hurt. Give out big contracts. Get the best players to jump ship like when the USFL launched. It’s like when the Sports Hub took out WEEI. People are begging for another option. Just give us real football with the best players and the fans will flock to you. It’s time for Vince McMahon to save America like only Vince McMahon can do. We need to bring back the XFL.
Huff – A new creation by Central Saint Martins University graduates Pierre Papet, Victor Johansson and Samuel Sheard confirms our suspicion, and aims to “upgrade our current 130-year old flush toilet for better health and environment,” according to design site Tuvie, where we spotted the next-generation loo. The Wellbeing Toilet, as its called, is designed to enhance the position of your body (and ultimately how you get rid of bodily waste) by enabling you to squat rather than sit. While still in the prototype phase, the toilet, which was created in partnership with plumbing and drain company Dyno-Rod, draws on long-standing research that shows how bathroom posture affects our health. According to Bockus’s Gastroenterology, a standard medical text from 1964, “the ideal posture for defecation is the squatting position, with the thighs fixed upon the abdomen,” Slates’s Daniel Lametti noted back in 2010.
This toilet looks like the worst toilet ever. I’m not trying to be delicately balanced on a little perch like a shy kitten when I’m shitting. I don’t wanna be hugging my knees into my chest like I’m sitting around a camp fire making s’mores. I mean there’s no way you’d be able to muscle out a tough one on this thing. You’d have a weak center of gravity and no solid foundation. Feet gotta be planted for the stabilization factor. Hunched over forward, head in one hand and cell phone in the other, grunting when necessary. You can’t just change years of American shitting evolution like this. Imagine being drunk and trying to drop heat on the Wellbeing toilet? Disaster.
Listen if they wanna put these in chick’s bathrooms, fine. If girls wanna be curled up and dainty while they’re on the can then more power to them. But there’s no way I want to climb onto one of these things. I need boots on the ground and a wide stance or I just can’t preform comfortably.
PS – Yeah I just got this great modeling gig! Basically it’s just me sitting on a weird toilet in public and simulating taking a shit for everyone to see.
