Turning red after a couple of drinks maybe not harmless: it may be linked to an inherited deficiency in an enzyme called ALDH2 and an increased risk for a dangerous throat cancer, which is exacerbated if you drink (or smoke).

And you probably also read that piping hot drinks are linked to a different kind of esophageal cancer, too. (I've never been a straight-from-the-pot drinker myself.) I think this is interesting but it's not a cause-and-effect study. I'm waiting to find out what the actual connection is. At any rate, I don't think anyone should let themselves feel silly for letting their drinks cool a bit.


Via [livejournal.com profile] phinnia, 6 reasons North Korea is the funniest most sadly absurd evil dictatorship ever, from Cracked.com (?!). Enough of it's true to my knowledge that I wouldn't be surprised if the rest of it's true, too. Oy vey, North Korea.


I'm redoing Talk to the Clouds because I kept running into the old theme as iconic of Twitter. Sigh. The new theme I'm toying with is an extremely customizable, powerful one called Atahualpa (last emperor of the Inca, what), but right now it looks very boring because I haven't customized the billion settings yet. It's a little overwhelming. I have thrown in a few of my own photos as header images; I used some that are grainy and blurry that I think look kinda cool up there, but if you think they're distracting, let me know. They rotate, which is interesting and makes it hard to come up with a unified look to the site. I'm trying to decide if I should go to the effort of finding/making an icon set to use everywhere on the site or what. I don't know. Or if I really won't want something so plain looking and I want something more integrated and decorative. I don't know. *wail*

The problem is that to get something more integrated I really have to go with someone else's package and then I will inevitably wind up looking like someone else.

Well, now I have a slightly soulless but basically OK Talk to the Clouds. Whee! I have 11 different header images. Just reload or click around to see 'em. Actually, if you don't mind viewing the site in whatever browser you have on hand to make sure it works, I'd appreciate it.

But I really wanted "Talk to the Clouds" to be in DaDa Antiquerist (or I at least wanted to try it) and there's no way to do that now. If I put it on each image, it won't appear when people view it on a small screen or resize it, since a nice feature of this theme is that the image just gets elided on the edges, and people don't have to scroll. I'd have to center it and it'd look kind of stupid, I reckon. I can't put it in the text box that's there, because that box is generated, and DaDa Antiquerist isn't a standard font, so.

Vexed!

Also, I want an excuse to use billions of tiny Japanese icons but can't really fit them into the theme. WHINE.

In case you missed it, you can now keep individual applications from showing up in your stream. HURRAY. Just mouseover the whitespace in the upper right of a post from that application, and HIDE will show up, but now, instead of just having the "Hide [user]" option (which hides everything that person does including status updates!), you've got "Hide [app]" when you click as well.YAY. An improvement! I can't imagine why they didn't include that from the start. Anyway, it makes things much more usable, if you don't want to see people's Delicious and Google Reader bookmarks (I do), or their Star Wars Gifts (I don't). Well, your real ones, OK, but not your Facebook app virtual ones. :p
