Wii Music Zelda Theme (via 23Makoto23)

I got the stupid Zelda theme stuck in my head.

There’s a little box on Amazon that reads ‘Tell the publisher I’d like to read this book on Kindle,’ ” she said. “I hope no one tells the publisher.

Is a Book Still a Book on Kindle? -

Reston Tea Party—Opening Remarks (via lesliecarbone)

Let me tell you about irony:

These people were doing their little tax day protest about 1/4 mile from my house. We live in one of the richest counties in the country, Fairfax County, Virginia. Not only it is loaded as hell, but it is VERY liberal (one would expect it to be as conservative as say, Midland, Texas). The people that were in this protest probably drove to it in Volvos and Audis, to complain about paying taxes, when they support a political party that believes in raising taxes and increasing government spending.


I would understand blue collar workers in an economically deprived city complaining about getting taxed to day, but rich people in a rich county complaining about taxes is just weird.
