Some numbers to consider:

-Judge Judy earns about $123,000 per day. $45,000,000 per year.

-Adam Sandler is worth ~$300,000,000.

-Before Nicolas Cage spent his $150,000,000 fortune on castles, snakes, and shrunken heads, he owned a Ferrari Enzo.

This Souza catch would be amazing by itself, but to save a no-hitter on the last out of the game is something else.

"The jump from being a "prosocial" psychopath or somebody on the edge who doesn’t act out violently, to someone who really is a real, criminal predator is not clear. For me, I think I was protected because I was brought up in an upper-middle-class, educated environment with very supportive men and women in my family. So there may be a mass convergence of genetics and environment over a long period of time. But what would happen if I lost my family or lost my job; what would I then become? That’s the test.”
This is from an interesting interview with a neuroscientist who discovers he has the brain of a psychopath. He looks at nature vs. nurture issues with psychopathy, and what can be done if YOU are a psychopath.

I’m kind of rethinking the album cover.

Just want this on my blog for posterity.

I just noticed there’s a photo in the background of someone giving the finger. Can’t really make it out though. Looks black and white and possibly an old person. Anyone?

Scandal completely dominated Twitter Trending Topics last night, so I made a graphic to illustrate it.
Some context:
The red “Paid” is a paid-for Twitter Promotion Trending Topic that a brand bought. When Twitter sells one of these, it takes one of the ten spots for trending topics, so there are only spots for 9 organic trending topics after that.
Anything pink is related to Scandal. (A good example of how just “pattern matching” primary keywords is often insufficient to capture chatter. For example, the TwitterData account might approach this by counting just “#scandal.”)
Not pictured: How hilarious Scandal tweeters are. Many of them are my friends, and should be writing their own TV shows. 

So Scandal killed it, on twitter at least. Here is bluechoochoo's google doc spreadsheet that updates more or less live when you reload.
It’s an incredibly handy tool that you should bookmark even if you’re not a data nerd. It’s easy to understand and then you can talk about stuff and things, even if you don’t actually care. You won’t be that cat sitting awkwardly at the dinner table.

Anonymous said: Is it possible to be so extremely wack you come back around to fresh? Because I am really fucking wack, and I can't have much farther to go. Unless the only way to be more wack than I already am is to also be racist.

Yeah, let’s not test this.
