The Saturday links

A few things I wanted to put up before getting to my next re-read post for A Game of Thrones. (You're reading them and keeping up to date, right? Cool.) Here are your Saturday links:

-Are you a fan of True Blood? You can win a signed copy of Truly, Madly, Deadly by Becca Wilcott. All you have to do is submit a caption for the photo of the author. Contest closes Wednesday, May 5.

-Fewer vs Less: Now you know.

-Gentlemen, do you know how your facial hair scores on a scale of trustworthiness? Does it skew towards Very Trustworthy or Disastrous? This diagram will inform you. (Note: I'm disappointed that of all the facial-hair types, my perma-stubble was not listed. I don't know what that means.)

-Two weeks ago you never cared that Iceland had a volcano. Now? Now you follow it on Twitter. It's a lava, not a fighter.

-People who don't take public transit don't know what they're missing (that sentence was 90% sarcasm-free).
The people who tarnish the experience of taking public transit are generally the ones who are unfamiliar with transit etiquette. They're the ones standing still on escalators and standing right in front of the subway doors when people are trying to get out. Most people huff and move on. Well, not anymore. Someone in Toronto has come up with the bright idea to make etiquette posters for the TTC.

-I'm typing this while some guys across the street sing slightly off-key. They sound like they've had a very, very long night. But really, can't you pick a better chorus to sing over and over again than "She's so High" by Tal Bachman? That must be my cue to leave. See you on Monday for ASOIAF.

i like the diagram of facial hair, but would recommend they make a scale for kissability. things would change dramatically. :P

Indeed. I try to keep mine in the tolerably scratchy zone :)
