John Farrier's Comments

If a teenager has his phone with him, he doesn't have to immediately go home (where his parents are) after school. He can seek adventures elsewhere without checking in.

Oh, now I understand!

That's a hat tip. In the Neatorama style, we put that at the bottom of a post. I normally provide a hat tip directly the post in question. However, the permalinks in American Digest's sidebar are hard to work with. So I just link to the main page when I find a story from the sidebar of that blog.

I appreciate your feedback. After blogging here for more than five years, I think of the Neatorama style as intuitive. So it's helpful to have a fresh set of eyes look at the way we do things. If our format is confusing to readers, then we should address that problem.

Admittedly, there's not a lot of information there, but there's some. I did a reverse image search and some googling and that's all I could come up with.

Once you're on the Washington Post article, scroll all the way down to the bottom until you see the photo of the woman with armpit hair extensions. That's what I'm referring to.

I did. It's in the second paragraph. But I'll make it bold text so it's a bit more clear.

My general convention is to make the main link bold if it leads readers to significantly more information on the topic than I'm providing. There wasn't here, so I didn't.

Excellent find, Lisa. I really like the idea of a creek running beneath my house. Or even just a creek on my property. Or, right now, just property.

It would be nice to have my own home office with a personal treadmill. That way, I could close the door, yell at myself to keep going, and not look foolish to people around me.

That's one of my Neatorama posting regrets. I follow Mel Brooks on Twitter and saw his tweet. But I didn't see the sixth finger and ignored it. I could have scooped the entire blogosphere if I had been paying closer attention.

During a dark time in my life, my wife instructed me to read It. She said it would be good for me. It didn't make much of an impression on me, but I appreciated the sentiment.

I've watched a few scenes from the old miniseries, but never the whole thing.
