This is actually pissing me off. It has begun to ruin halloween for me knowing people don’t spell check. Things are massed produced in factories and sent out for sale to the public spelt spoopy, doo, and creppy. Like what the actual fuck. My computer even automatically changes spoopy to spooky. I mean, come on. The best holiday season and businesses don’t even care enough about it to spell check the items they’re gonna sell. Fuck this shit.
come on buddy wheres your smngfiehp cheer

"It looked like a piano sounds shortly after being dropped down a well. It tasted yellow, and felt Paisley. It smelled like a total eclipse of the moon. Of course, nearer to the tower it got really weird."
a lot of people talk like capitalism is necessary to have innovation and I just think of all the brilliant and creative people I know who spend all of their time and energy worrying about how they’re going to have a roof over their heads and food to eat. capitalism doesn’t drive innovation, it stifles it and shackles it to the endlessly wasteful machinery of exploitation.
so I noticed something about Hatchworth’s sideburns at Anime Midwest
I estimate that by 2015 his face will be 100% sideburn
"FINDING ROVER" APP HELPS FIND LOST DOGS - “In its test runs over the past year, Polimeno said, 200 dogs were recovered in the Bay Area and other locations.…”
An application called Finding Rover has been tested by shelters in the San Francisco area to help identify lost dogs. The app uses facial recognition software to match pictures of dogs with other photos taken elsewhere. The developers now hope to increase usage of Finding Rover across the U.S. Read more from the San Francisco Chronicle:
John Polimeno is a lifelong dog lover. He hates the idea of lost pooches. So he’s invented a smartphone app that he says will consign the world’s lost-dog problems to the pooper-scooper of history.
He calls it Finding Rover, and after testing it small scale over the past year with a startup team of developers in Oakland that he calls “barkaroos,” he’s spreading the free app nationwide.
The way it works is this: Use the app to take a picture of your dog, then log that picture into the www.findingrover.com database. Because of facial recognition technology Polimeno had specially developed, any other photo of your dog that’s taken with the app will instantly match the one in the database.
One of the last challenges they faced was how to get an antsy pooch to sit still for a photo, but they overcame that with what they call a “bark button.” Press it while you’re trying to get the dog to pose, and it makes the phone emit a high-pitched puppy squeal. Virtually every dog in earshot will immediately tilt its head and freeze. Snap.
This is a great new tool to help dogs return to their families. Hopefully the lost dogs will be willing to look directly at the camera. Click here for the full story and here for more about Finding Rover. (Photos from their Facebook page)
