I don’t advocate graffiti or vandalism and I certainly don’t want people to go around scratching up innocent mirrors, but this is pretty cool looking. Mirror art – who knew? Do you get bad luck from scratching a mirror or do you straight up have to break it?
These questions are just too big for me. See a closeup of the scratch mirror art after the jump… Read the rest of this entry
I’m sure you’ve heard the expression “learn by osmosis,” but I bet most people don’t know what the word “osmosis” actually means. Ever seen the word “osmosis” in this context?
Wikipedia defines osmosis as follows:
Osmosis is the net movement of solvent molecules through a partially permeable membrane into a region of higher solute concentration, in order to equalize the solute concentrations on the two sides.
Yeah, I didn’t follow all that either. Essentially, osmosis is the diffusion of water… and a reverse osmosis filter removes chlorine, heavy metals, such as barium, cadmium, chromium, lead and mercury from water for drinking.
So boom. No learning going on here – except the correct* definition of “osmosis.”

The movie is charming in some ways and disappointing in others – I’d call it a mixed bag. Read the rest of this entry
Since I’m giving Target a hard time anyway, I thought I’d include this picture of the fire exit being blocked by a zillion shopping carts. There are probably another 10 behind that door. So… yeah. Safety first!
I took this photo just before the Super Bowl, so I think their stocking idea was that you’d come in to Target for some snacks and walk out with some snacks… and a 40 inch TV. Makes sense.
So poetic. And only seven bucks, too! Glen Beck must be proud.
The jokes just write themselves! Classic!
Anyway, every time I’m confused by a word, I always think of this clip from Star Trek The Next Generation:
