Thank you in advance.
Thank you in advance.
I don't play video games, but I know a lot of people who do. I also know one person who makes video games, including this one that took him over a year and a half to complete.
I'm not trying to sell anything to you, so don't ban me, bro. Or tase me. Bro.
If you enjoy Skyrim and wish you could play it for at least 30 more hours and finish 26 new quests on a brand-new island, play this freaking game!
Make me proud with your comments. I expect fresh ideas.
We may not have your badge ready, but, as is our custom with galaxy level Sifters, I have written and performed a song in your honor. With great apologies to the Fab 4:
(and we really need to sort out that whole which one of you is a cat thing)
Jen. finally did it and what's your secret to get this far for an over one year member? Beside being addicted to VS like all of us.
I do love my homeland - for the music, the culture, the food, the promise of opportunity, the air of optimism and class equality.
I've lived outside the US for almost 15 years now. At some point in the future I'll probably tick over to the point where I've lived more of my life overseas than the country of my birth.
When you do live in other countries - you look at the USA in a different way. You see it through the eyes of non-Americans. My kids tell me, in their Aussie classrooms, that the US is a target for criticism- gentle ribbing sometimes - bitter mocking at others. It's OK, because their classmates don't know that my kids are American. They have no yankee accent.
Recently - that classroom criticism has started to seep into other areas of my life - at work, on the street etc. I don't ever want to have to hide my Americanness. I hope that no one ever spray paints "yankee go home" on my garage door- or that my kids have to renounce their heritage to friends - because we like being American.
I had to peel my Obama bumper sticker off yesterday though. I was afraid that the car might get keyed, or egged.
So, selfishly, for my sake - and other ex-pats living overseas who love their country - if we could just get things a bit back on track - that would be great.
This is a very rambling post to wish my fellow country people a happy and hopeful Independence Day - and to urge you to attend or support the
Restore the Fourth movement.
I learned about Copy, which is very comparable in price (e.g., $9.99/mo for 250GB) but a much, much better service with faster transfer speeds and fantastic UI (for website, desktop, and mobile app). I've been using Copy for about a month now and am very satisfied with it.
Some of the great features are: 200 kb/s, revision history for every modified file so you can revert back to a previous version, undelete files you mistakenly deleted, auto-upload of photos as you take them (from the mobile app), creating companies to share your storage, and more.
If you're interested in awesome online storage, you can sign up for a free 15GB account, but as Copy is big on growing via referral, if you sign up with my link, you and I will get an extra 5GB of permanent bonus storage: https://copy.com?r=D0OuTI
If you already using Copy, how do you like it? If not, what type of cloud storage are you using and what's your experience like with it?

I've known for a long time that my wife's earwax is all dry, but I always thought it was really weird and just because maybe she doesn't consume enough water every day.
I saw an episode of Mythbusters years ago where they had dozens or so people pile up their earwax to see if they could create a functioning candle with it, and all their earwax looked like mine, so that's always help me assume my wife is the one oddball and everyone else is like me.
I recently discovered while listening to the DVDASA podcast (starring David Choe and Asa Akira) that what's actually going on is Asians have dry earwax and non-Asians have wet earwax. I've confirmed researchers determined this is really the case via some science sources online. Fascinating, isn't it?
My sons are half Asian, but I haven't found any good earwax samples in their heads yet, so I'm not sure what a 50/50 person's earwax might be like. Maybe dry in one ear and wet in the other? Maybe a 1:1 mixture of dry and wet?
Anyways, what is your earwax like? Please inform what your genetic ethnicity is. Thanks for participating in this highly scientific poll!
I especially need you to comment if you're some kind of a mixed-breed ir if you have a type of earwax that isn't supposed to apply to you (e.g., Asian with wet or non-Asian with dry).

I am so happy to announce that my good friend Barseps has earned his
crown! If he weren't so busy answering my silly questions about
how this site works from the time I first started here, I bet he would
have his crown 6 months ago! Mike is a very patient, friendly, and
helpful member of the Sift and we are VERY lucky to have him.
Please join me in a collective "YAY!" for PlayhousePals earning a well deserved CROWN!! Cheri, you have a heart of gold...an awesome sense of humor...and a fantastically absurd taste in videos. Speaking of which...check out her YouTube channel should you require your day be brightened...a smile brought to your face...or a demo of some sharp video editing skills.
Hooray for JAN! ~ Nemesis to Monsanto and friend to the universe, good luck and godspeed.
any help here ?
What a pompous asshole.
Hey, dick. You can't reserve the right to dictate to everyone on earth how a term must be pronounced just because you coined it.
"Daughter" used to be pronounced "dafter" before it became "dawter." Things change. Language evolves. Get over it. (I wonder why "laughter" did not become "lawter," but I digress.)
I don't like that people use "text" as the past tense of "text," but I've conformed to what the masses have decided. Language is a democratic institution, not a dictatorship.
This is from my main PC but has just now occurred on my sister's laptop which I have little control over. So I thought that was interesting.
Going direct to YouTube shows the video embed correctly.
