PIKACHU, use yer bodyslam attaaackkk!!11
So my mom and I have been working the same waitress job for 5-6 years now. She had been waitressing years before, but this is recently. Anyway, about… 15 minutes ago this guy she waited on left and told her to take care. Just that. Prior to this she had talked to him about Italy. Her people are from Florence, this and that, and she said she’s never been. She’s got 8 years of art education and she’s working a waitress job. It’s pretty… Sad and disappointing, I guess. Her and my father divorced 6 years ago and she hasn’t had a real job ever. Just been stuck in a small town she’s not from.
This man who we have never seen before tipped her 1000 dollars for a trip to Italy. Walked out, not another word.
…you know. Just when I start to lose faith in humanity….Hm.

Spray-on Clothing becomes a Reality -
A Spanish fashion designer has developed the world’s first spray-on clothing that can be worn, washed and worn again.
Manel Torres joined forces with scientists at Imperial College London to invent the spray, which forms a seamless fabric on contact with the body.
Torres took 15 minutes to spray a T-shirt onto a male model in a demonstration today, ahead of his spring/summer collection at the Science in Style fashion show in London next week.
The spray consists of short fibres that are mixed into a solvent, allowing it to be sprayed from a can or high-pressure spray gun. The fibres are mixed with polymers that bind them together to form a fabric. The texture of the fabric can be varied by using wool, linen or acrylic fibres.
The fabric, which dries when it meets the skin, is very cold when it is sprayed on, a limitation that may frustrate hopes for spray-on trousers and other garments. [READ MORE…]

WSJ reports Yahoo board has approved a $1.1 billion deal — in cash — to purchase Tumblr.
There it is.
it’s the beginning of the end
Ugh. So does anyone have a place where we can migrate too once Tumblr starts going down the shitter?
No matter how hard they try to come off as though money isn’t an issue as Karp did in the beginning when he refused to use ads, they all fold in the end. I’m not going to act like I know what this means for tumblr, but if the history of social networking sites is an indication, most if not all of them go to shit. If that’s the case, we definitely had a long run.
