How we speak

This is such an interesting study: 22 maps showing the differences in the way we say things throughout the United States. I've always found it so interesting how we all live in the same country, but region to region we can be so different.

Here are ALL of the 122 maps!

The Oatmeal: Running

I really enjoy reading the comics on The Oatmeal. They can be very poignant and hilarious at the same time, and on one level or another they always seem to resonate. Recently he published his comic on running. I am not a runner. I have no aspiration of running a marathon. I would like to finish a 5K in under 30 minutes. I figure this is a nice goal, something within reach. So to read his comic about why he runs really made sense to me, although on a smaller, 1/10 scale.

Eastern Collective

I found this site that has cool cables for iPods and Android devices. Maybe the cats won't want to chew these.
