So, not science-y, but AsA should get a kick out of this. Unless she's already seen it.. which she may have...

That's awesome. Thanks! ^_^

And as a matter of fact, I could submit every single email that comes from the receptionist at work - odd emphasis, quotations, font changes, color changes... she probably spends more time formatting than she does typing.

Quite frankly, one of the most impressive photographs I have seen in a LONG time.

Web Fiction Guide

A great site if you're looking for original prose on the web, and they cover a lot of genres too. Be careful though, as they do link to stories with mature materials, but there is usually a content warning.

Okay, this is the awesomest thing ever.

Unfortunately the full service is on a subscription, but you can test it out for free.

And this!

North American Summer School in Logic, Language, and Information

Those classes sound awesome! Like, really really! Except I'm an undergrad, so I'd probably miss most of it. But there's a European version, and I have a feeling Nem would be right at home there. ^_~

The Occupational Outlook Handbook from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics:

http://www.bls.gov/oco/

For basically any profession you can think of, it'll tell you:

* the training and education needed
* earnings
* expected job prospects
* what workers do on the job
* working conditions

Obviously they can't cover EVERYTHING. There's no entry for whale feces researcher. But for most professions there'll be an entry.

Where Mario got his overalls. Smile Space in particular will enjoy this.

http://www.techeblog.com/index.php/tech-gadget/where-mario-really-got-his-overalls

The beginning of the blog that talks about Mario's overalls is pretty funny. The latter part is also less funny, and it involves Toad and rude hand gestures.
