And Some Links I’m Sure Everyone Has Already Seen
Seniors Rule. (via Kottke.org) Yeah, they’re pretty bad and pretty funny. When I was in high school, I didn’t really want my picture taken (I still don’t like being photographed) but of course, you had to for the yearbook. There was this black drape that we had to wear for the photo session and I supposed, what the heck, might as well get a few wallet sized pics for the edification of my parents. Do you know how much those things cost? Ripping off students because they’re required to do a yearbook picture is an understatement. Everyone else, to my dismay, were obsessed about getting their pictures done–especially with weird backdrops. Maybe they were trying to appease their own vanity with those really horrible (and expensive) glamor shots. I found the entire exercise completely pointless. Who, exactly, is going to see those photos besides your relatives?
Crazy Train or Emotional Subway Attack. (via Ectophensis) Oh wow. I would never have the guts to do this unless there was one other person willing to do it with me. And I don’t know any showtunes. I guess I better go learn some.

It was very interesting to hear that owning a cat increases a man’s pulling power, because it definitely doesn’t increase a woman’s. Whereas the male cat owner is apparently imbued with caring, sharing qualities, owning a cat for a single woman these days is tantamount to admitting you’re a frigid, emotionally unstable sociopath who should probably be burnt at the stake as a witch.
I do not own any pets. The last time I had pets was when I was eight years old and they were fish. Of course, they promptly died. What this says about me, I probably don’t want to know.

Physicists at the Institute of Physics have devised a formula that high-heel fans can use to work out just how high they can go. Based on your shoe size, the formula tells you the maximum height of heel you can wear without toppling over or suffering agonies.
I wear running shoes approximately 99.9% of the time that I am wearing shoes. This way, I don’t have to worry about stupid equations.
Successful matchmaker to be awarded a PS2. (via Monkeyfilter) You know, this would have been pretty funny if it weren’t also very sad. It’s one thing to give away a PlayStation to someone who finds you a girlfriend, but it’s another thing if you’re doing it because all your other friends are hooked up. My advice: Be different and follow what you want to do. Don’t let society dictate your social life. Or maybe I’m just cranky because I have to put up with people (male and female alike) whining about their lack of dates. You know what I think? People are too needy and dependent. That’s part of human nature, I guess, but it’s a really annoying part.
