Two amazing things.
First, my twitterati have gone through phase after phase of fascination with the auto-complete text fill-ins on their phone. But what if you sought to fill in the U.S. states names using the function? Here’s what you’d get (h/t kottke):
Poor Montana Fisburne. Just starting her porn career and now she’s got to maintain a long border with Canada. You’ll notice the obvious patterns: schools and sports teams.
Second fascinating thing? ASA journals apparently made a $1.4 million PROFIT in 2008 from member dues, publications (and authors paying to have their pieces reviewed, printed and sent to them), and selling our mailing addresses to marketers. Aren’t we a non-profit organization? And why isn’t this information regularly distributed to the organization’s members? Wikileaks, indeed.
