The Secret Circle’s Phoebe Jane Tonkin: Just how bad is Faye?: On Twitter, Carina said Phoebe is “basically the Ian Somerhalder” of The secret Circle. <3 that so much.


Do-it-yourself hobbit holes in Wales: I want to go to there.

Men photographed in pinup poses: I’m going to go ahead and say it: men need to start shaving their legs.

How to be an effective internet stalker: You know, just in case you want to scope out your next Craigslist Random Encounters date before letting them throw handcuffs on you.

How to escape from zip ties: In case that search wasn’t so effective after all.


The cutest kiss of the day: Your weekly dose of squee.

Computers & Technology

Steve Jobs: 1955 – 2011: Say what you will – and in the past, I have – the man was a true visionary.

Amazon kindles an eBook fire: Summary: Amazon just announced a $79 kindle, a $99 Kindle Touch, and a $149 Kindle Touch, and a $199 Kindle Fire tablet. Reports that Barnes & and Noble and Apple immediately shit themselves remain unsubstantiated. Of course, Kindle still doesn’t support ePub…

Science & Religion & Politics

Is evil over? A look at the latest developments in neuroscience, which suggest that free will is an illusion… which means that evil is, too. I believe that this is true, and I think it should transform the way we run our penal/rehabilitation system.
