Someone has cut a series of videos called “Bad Lip Reading”, where they do their own voice-overs based on what it looks like the person is saying/singing. This one of Rick Perry (“Save a pretzel for the gas jet!”)brought me to tears. I don’t know if they’re all this good, but feel free to let me know in the comments.

I’ve long felt a need to maintain some vagueness in my online life. I don’t post about vacations or extended trips until they’re done. I don’t reveal any more personal information than necessary. It turns out I’m not entirely paranoid. According to a recent survey, burglars use social media and online information to aid them in planning their heists. Be careful out there, okay folks?

Congratulations to President Obama, who has evidently kicked his smoking habit. While I don’t know from experience, I’ve known plenty of smokers, and it’s not an easy thing to do in any situation, let alone one of the most stressful jobs in the world. Well done!
