Places I Visited on the Internet Today #15

A couple of years ago, I had a couple of months where I wasn't working and I decided to catalog everything that I looked at on the Internet during the day. I always had a lot of fun making and sharing these posts and now that I've got a few days off around Thanksgiving, I thought it would be fun to do it again:

Another day of catching up on the Internet has been recorded:

Places I Visited on the Internet Today #13

I was sick for a good portion of this week, and as a result I didn't spend too much time looking at the Internet (I was too dizzy for reading). Today I caught up on it:

There's a lot of stuff on the Internet. Here's what I got around to looking at today:

Places I Visited on the Internet Today #10

I started a new job this week and, as a result, spent very little time on the Internet over the past five days. Thank goodness for Saturdays that allow you to catch up on everything:
Postscript: I spent so much time on the Internet today that I neglected my homework! I was putting it off anyway and probably wouldn't have done it, but my public service message to you is: don't put off things in order to look at the Internet, because it will be there tomorrow (except if you live in Syria or had an Internet outage like I did last night).

Places I Visited on the Internet Today #9

Today I started a new job, one where I cannot look at the Internet, so this list will be shorter than earlier ones. There's always the weekend.
  • Another Monday brings the question, "Was this your weekend?" (via @IncubateBlog)
  • Vintage Portland has a picture of the St. Louis Hotel in the 1930s. This is one of the few blogs where you should read the comments. Great community detective work.
  • On ZooBorns, there are some cute lion twins. I love the pictures of them with their Pop.
  • From Retronaut, Lyle Stuart drawings of puberty/sexuality. I didn't Google him too closely, but I think that he was probably the same artist that illustrated the book of the "birds and the bees" that my parents shared with me when I was a little kid. It was a great book because it didn't shy away from sex and just presented it as something that adults do. What you could communicate with kids in the 70s would get you arrested today. In any case, this illustrator is my immediate reference when I think about the late 70s. The style was appropriated in a more crude fashion in the 80s, but that's a whole post to itself.
  • - thanks to @welshkaren for the reminder. The link is exactly what you would expect. 
  • Police blotter:
    • There was a sexual assault near PSU.
    • Bank robberies are never as sexy as they are in movies.
    • This lady was murdered a few years ago, and the cops need help on the cold case. Side note: regardless of how terrible our city's cops are regarding minorities and the mentally ill, they are pretty awesome when it comes to cold cases. A lot of it has to do with new technologies, but the rest of it is due to retried detectives that keep on cases. I'm too lazy to Google the shit now, but seriously.
    • Cops are going to do a sting for bad drivers at NE 78th and Glisan on Wednesday. If you drive in that area, behave yourself. But really, behave yourself anyway.
Wikipedia pages:
Something that I don't include in these listings are images that I can view within Twitter, and I guess that I should make mention of that. Technically, I am viewing other websites when I do this sort of thing, but it's exhausting to chronical the photos on Twitter or the links to Instagram. Just imagine that you are looking at a lot of pictures of food, sunsets and bikes, and you will be fulfilled.

Also, something that I referenced in an earlier post that I am having a hard time tracking down now was this article in the New York Times about "hipsters". I popped it open and read through the whole thing and want to make a serious response to it - something that is outside the scope of my link postings. For now, all that matters is that I looked at it today as well.
