Two soccer players take off around the globe exploring the other less glorified side of soccer: pick up games, impromptu contests that happen anywhere and between anyone. I wish I could do something like this one day.
I would just like to say that the song "Maps"...
thebalaclava: I’m sorry if I’m alienating anyone, but everytime something related to that song pops up on the dashboard, I die a little bit inside. Is that the one by the Yeah Yeah Yeahs? If so, I COMPLETELY agree then.
First good one..
Stranger: GETUNDER THE BED
Stranger: TELL ME WHEN YOU'RE THERE
You: im here
Stranger: ok here's whats going to happen next:
Stranger: they're going to take you
Stranger: but before they do i need you to describe as much as you can of them
Stranger: JUST DO IT
You: ok ok ok
You: i think theyre here
Stranger: i can hear them...
Stranger: DESCRIBE THEM TO ME
Stranger: BUT BE DISCREET AS PSSIBLE
You: SCAR ON FACE
Stranger: (breathing comes into phone)
Stranger: I don't know who you are.
Stranger: I don't know what you want.
Stranger: If you are looking for ransom, I can tell you I don't have money.
Stranger: But what I do have are a very particular set of skills; skills I have acquired over a very long career.
Stranger: Skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.
Stranger: If you let my daughter go now, that'll be the end of it.
Stranger: I will not look for you, I will not pursue you.
Stranger: But if you don't, I will look for you, I will find you, and I will kill you.
You: Good luck

wired: A new fan-made video for Death Cab for Cutie’s sad ballad “Grapevine Fires” is a surreal tear-jerker about California’s 2007 wildfires. Like the song, which appeared on the band’s 2008 album, Narrow Stairs, the animated reel captures the up-close experience that lead singer Ben Gibbard had with the conflagration. Southern Californians flee the coming flames...

We spend most of our lives looking back, with only the occasional, furtive glance ahead. We are expert historians, but only armchair astrologers; we leave predictions of the future to the gods or the insane. And well enough: if we could look forward as well as we look back, it would be as crippling as a break to the spine. This one section reminded me of the plight of Dr.Manhattan; constantly...

Great little peice about the mechanics and method behind reading. I never heard of “saccades” before, but it makes a lot of sense. Our eyes travel along the lines in a series of jumps called “saccades.” Between saccades they stop for a moment (called a fixation) so that we absorb text in chunks varying in length from a few characters to up to about eighteen. And, It’s that sense...

Professor Kagan discusses the two main positions with regard to the question, “What is a person?” On the one hand, there is the dualist view, according to which a person is a body and a soul.
