Tidbits III


I just learned about Simple English Wikipedia (via xkcd). Its articles are written with simple words and grammar. Unfortunately it has just a fraction of the articles that the “real” Wikipedia has.

LOL Cat Bible

While I’m on the subject of pseudo-translations, I thought I’d share the LOL Cat Bible. I found this about two years ago but it’s still worth sharing. It’s a wiki that is set up for people to translate The Holy Bible into LOL Cat speach. It’s a lot of fun; I just wish I knew the real bible better so I could appreciate it more.


So I’m on Twitter. I’ve been avoiding it for two or three years, but Jen just got on it so I kinda had to. It’s like Facebook’s status, but you can send and receive updates using text messages. I actually like it quite a bit. I just need more friends; I feel like I’m not talking at anyone (kind of like when I blog…). So sign up and start tweeting (yes, it has a verb).

Protip: to appreciate Twitter, you have to set it up to text your phone. Make sure to do that, and to turn on Device Updates for all your friends (“followers”).

Stumble Upon

Another Website that I’ve been aware of for a long time but never really used is Stumble Upon. Cheese mentioned that she’s using it and it reminded me about it. You create an account and it asks you some questions, and then it shows you random things on the Web that it thinks you’ll like. The more you use it, the more it learns about what you’ll like.


A Website that I have been using for a while is Bloglines. It helps you stay up-to-date on Websites (usually blogs) that you like. All you have to do to subscribe to a site is click it’s RSS link. My blog list (“blogroll”) is public, so you can check it out if you’re bored.
