Results May Vary


*The Glamourous Grad Student discusses Facebook games and the next generation of women.

*"Apologize," Founding Fathers style. Amazing amazing amazing.

*Nintendo fans rejoice! Play Super Mario as other Nintendo characters (including their special abilities): includes Mario (of course), Link, Mega Man, Samus, Simon, and Bill R. Ugh, this is too great. Now if only I didn't suck at Mario games....

*I actually thought this little article in defense of Ke$ha was really interesting. We love to complain about how much music sucks these days, but are we actually demanding "junk food music" anyway?

*I saw George Watsky perform his poem "Go Robo" live, but this performance is even better. This is a must-watch.

*Make your own protein bars-- really cool, and I'm going to try this for sure when I get the money.

*Lesley from Fatshionista shared an amazing article over at Newsweek about childhood obesity and her apprehensions surrounding Michelle Obama's campaign against it. Don't read the comments if you don't want to feel homicidal.

*If a pug can go green, so can you!

*Dave Devries traced kids' drawings and then painted them "realistically." Some of them are super creepy. Check it out here.


*"Americans who travel abroad for the first time are often shocked to discover that, despite all the progress that has been made in the last 30 years, many foreign people still speak in foreign languages." If you're a journalist-- nay, a human with a sense of humor-- and you don't know Dave Barry, you're missing out big time. 



These are some of the things I'm lovin' this week, but results may vary. Tell me what you think in the comments!

I love, love, love the Apologize video! I saw it a few months ago, and it still makes me chuckle and love history even more, every time I watch it. If you like that video then checkout the Alexander Hamilton rap by Lin-Manuel Miranda on youtube, it is so funny and enlighting at the same time! :)

HAHAHAHA! I love the last picture. I can think of a few people that I would love to actually say that too... but that's mean. So I'll just silently amuse myself in my head in the meantime.

Nice finds. :)
