Link roundup

1. Reddit: "If you have a parrot and you don't teach it to say,"Help, they've turned me into a parrot", you are wasting everybody's time."

2. Discussing Google+, Boing Boing explains why many professional people, especially scientists, need to use pseudonyms.

3. The Miami New Times says it uncovered emails showing a Newsweek writer trying to set Shaq up with some ladies.

4. One-week clearance sale at Entertainment Earth.


  1. Just so it's said once, the parrot joke was originally said by comedian Julia Segal.

  2. Holy fuck, that is one of the funniest things I have ever read. If I had a bucket list, it would have now have "buy a parrot" on it.

  3. I used to have an African Grey (named "Sparky" haha) that my dad got from his friend. Whenever my mom would go to work, he would say, "Bye~" He would also scream my name a la the way my mom would, among plenty of other things. He was a bit of a grouchy bird, but I loved him anyways. Then he ate what the vet identified to be a rubber band or something and died. :(
