Clicks of the Day Current Events Lists Random

Clicks of the Day: Monday, October 31, 2011 Edition!

Welcome to Monday, October 31 2011’s Clicks of the Day!

  • Ubuntu goes mobile, expect it on phones, tablets and TVs
  • “Ubuntu isn’t going to remain just on the desktop, though. Mark Shuttleworth and his company Canonical have much wider plans for the operating system. We can expect to see it competing against iOS, Android, and Windows on smartphones and tablets, as well as making space for itself on future smart TVs in the coming years.”

    Exciting! My brother loves Ubuntu!

  • Gallery: Halloween 2011
  • “Angry Birds and Black Swan topped the list for most Googled costumes for Halloween 2011. Check out what some of the other costumes by Global viewers.”

    Woo hoo, Mike & I made the gallery, haha.

  • Black Licorice: Trick or Treat?
  • “If you’re 40 or older, eating 2 ounces of black licorice a day for at least two weeks could land you in the hospital with an irregular heart rhythm or arrhythmia.”

    Crazy! Black licorice is terrible anyway though.

  • The 8 Worst Fonts In The World
  • “Fonts are like cars on the street–we notice only the most beautiful or ugly, the funniest or the flashiest. The vast majority roll on regardless.”

    Lol I can’t believe Comic Sans isn’t #1 on least favourite! But @Times New Roman is pretty ugly too lol

  • Kim Kardashian Divorce Makes Her Instant Poster Girl for Gay Marriage
  • “Kim Kardashian’s mini-marriage became an instant rallying cry among same-sex marriage advocates who pointed out that she was allowed to make a joke of the institution while many gay couples who want lifelong marriages still aren’t allowed to wed.”

    So true. What a joke!

  • The Candy Hierarchy (2011)
  • “Once again with Halloween upon us, it’s time to revisit candy culture, or more specifically, a system that aims to rank it.”

  • No, I’m the seven billionth baby! Claims to the title come in from around the world
  • K I think this is ridiculous – there’s no way to pinpoint who the 7th billion baby is. But I guess being a “part of” the seven billion babies group is acceptable. I just refuse to accept that one baby was the 7th billion and that we know who it is. Impossible!!

  • Scientists plan $1.5bn laser strong enough ‘to tear the fabric of space’
  • “A laser powerful enough to tear apart the fabric of space could be built in Britain. The major scientific project will follow in the footsteps of the Large Hadron Collider and will answer questions about the universe.”

    Are people stupid. So next world catastrophe will be accidentally tearing apart the fabric of space? Wonderful.

  • YouTube mounts TV challenge with original programming
  • “YouTube has announced plans to create dozens of channels with original content, constructing an online challenge to the television experience and signaling the video giant’s official leap into high-quality programming.”

    ~The Future~

  • Psychic says Halloween’s a good time to communicate with the dead
  • “Ghosts and spirits are part of the typical Halloween fun and Dawn says the holiday is traditionally a good time for communing with those beyond the grave… ‘This is where the veil is thin.'”

    Cool.

  • Slutty Halloween Costumes: A Cultural History
  • “We’ve long had sexy costumes; it’s just that the boundaries of “sexiness” have changed.”

    Good – or should I say sexy – read! Lol.

  • [Infographic]: How Cellphones shape lives of College Students
  • “Some 88% text during class; 40% use their phones for last-minute test prep; and a quarter take their devices out during each class.”

    Dang, surprised at how many students’ parents foot their cell phone bills! I’ve always had to pay for my own, since Day 1!

  • Sports anchor Barry Deley wins lottery home live on air
  • “Global BC sports anchor got the shock of his life live on-air on Monday, when he won the BC Children’s Hospital grand prize worth $2.5 million.”

    Oh my gosh, this is hilarious and amazing!! Wow. So lucky.

  • New on the blog: a review of @AnChayYEG, Edmonton's first all-Vegetarian Vietnamese restaurant! 😍😋 I think with #AnChayYEG I could finally commit to #MeatlessMonday! 😉 Loved this Vegetarian version of one of my favourite Vietnamese soups: spicy lemongrass #bunbohue. Dad & I also tried their shredded tofu rolls & lotus salad. Click the link in my bio to read the full review! 💻📱

  • This week we celebrated my mom & dad's birthdays with a feast at @chaforteapalace! 🎉 (Their birthdays are 4 days from each other). Dad doesn't like birthdays though so when we said "Happy birthday!" he replied with "You mean Unhappy Birthday. 👨🏻" lol. Sure dad. 😂

  • I don't know if anyone has noticed but I've been alternating food / people / food / people posts for over a month now and it's taken quite a bit of dedication to the grid but I'm doing it. It's fun too lol. 
This is the #instalife 😂

  • Got to try the @fairmontmac's new "Beast Board" today with @letsomnom and oh my gah is it a delicious feast. 🤤 For $99, this board feeds two people and includes your choice of 3 proteins (and chef's choice of vegetables / sides). 🙌🏻 Not sure what to rave about first.. delicious beets, risotto and whipped potatoes. Even better duck, lamb, and salmon. Excellent pea purée. This is officially on the dinner menu as of Oct. 12 but you can order it off menu until then (just ask your server!) Don't forget the Fairmont also has a harvest farm to table dinner with @myprairiegardens next Friday Oct. 13! Check their page for more details @fairmontmac. And Happy Long Weekend Friday!!! 😍
