If you’re looking for a fun, low-traffic post that is both thought-provoking, funny and simply a must-read, try Ironic Sans.
I’ve talked before about the plugin he’s made to “uncensor the Internet”, but he also posts random cool ideas like the Bulbdial clock here:
Another very cool recent post was on courtroom artists, of all things. He showed the pictures they’ve drawn and also the things they draw and paint outside the courtroom.
I’m a huge fan, and hope you check it out yourself!
The UK “Workout after Work” Day is celebrated on the Monday evening after shifting to Daylight Savings Time. Here in the UK, that day was today.
As expected, thousands of people that likely haven’t done any real working out in the past few months went running, cycling, walking or managed a similar workout this evening. When I got home at 7 tonight and it was still both light and beautiful out, and my run was completely reinvigorating! It didn’t really get dark out until about 8pm, which was just about perfect.
My wife and I live right around the corner from the Thames, and there’s a path that goes right along the banks that’s makes for a great walk or run. Tonight there were about 20 times more people out and about than any other night recently, likely helped by the beautiful weather. The recent high tides had made it a little muddy in parts, but overall it wasn’t too bad.

Step 1 – Stare curiously at the couch, trying to figure out if it’s moving because the neighbor downstairs is doing something strange.
Step 2 – Realise that it’s rather late at night, so neither your neighbor downstairs nor the empty flat next door is responsible.
Step 3 – Remember that it feels strangely like an earthquake you felt in Hawaii on holiday about ten years ago.
Step 4 – Go to bed.
Step 5 – Wake up to news from the BBC saying there was a earthquake (5.2 on the Richter scale) in Lincolnshire.
