On Are You Part of the 16% of People Who Can't Look at This Without Screaming?

@laurel Appropriate! And yes, also 'appropriated' ;-)

'Vacuuming? What, do you experience an accumulation of detritus on your floor surfaces over time, or something?'

On Friday Open Thread

@bananalise I have eaten
the plums
That we're in
The icebox

Forgive me
They were so crunchy
And slurpy
And loud

And now
I think
I'll eat this
Pear

On Eradicate Your Resting Bitchface with a $2000 "Valentine Anguloplasty"

I read about this surgery on another site and one of the photos they had showed a woman whose 'before' smile reminded me of Kate Winslet's. Don't despair, those with naturally-turned-down-at-the-corners mouths. (I mean, I'm not telling you to 'smile', but the naturally-turned-down-at-the-corners mouth can be quite attractive).

Who need a new avatar? Some of these would be great. I would grab one except I am already a sponge with a face.

On A Controversial Graphic Design Project for the Homeless

@iceberg Another graphic designer here. This reminds me of a conversation my colleagues had once:
Colleague 1 (after struggling with a frustrating layout task): You know, I could be out saving the world instead.
Colleague 2 (some time later): I'm still trying to work out how you could be saving the world with InDesign.
Everyone wants to think their profession is important and world-changing. Or, they themselves are important and world-changing. But the power of a fancy sign or a hard-hitting poster has its limits. These designers would be better off campaigning for more affordable healthcare, or crisis accommodation, or mental health services. Seriously, this guy is on the streets because he couldn't afford to have a stroke!
