Feel superior to everyone!

Have this playing when you hope to look intelligent and cultured in front of new friends who aren't aware of your shallow depths!

Discover that fusion tribal band you've been aching to add to your playlist!

(In all seriousness, Marketplace is very informative and a segment I very much enjoy.)

Ah, The Onion. Could there be a more glorious fake news site? They're commitment to keeping their world news stories feasible is what makes this site hilarious. Love this site.

Thank goodness for online delivery!

I generally like GrubHub. It's nice that so many small restaurants now have the opportunity to add online ordering to their services.

My only issue is that in the past, GrubHub has allowed me to order from restaurants that aren't open, and alerted to me about this AFTER I placed my order. My card wasn't charged, but it was annoying to have my time wasted like that.

Ah, Netflix. I wish I could quit you.

Netflix has helped me, and millions of others, develop the unhealthy need to watch every episode of a show ever in a span of three days.

I really like the "Max" addition to help you pick a film or show when you're feeling indecisive. It's pretty awesome how based on your previous choices and reviews, Max typically finds exactly what you're in the mood for.

Sure, I get bummed out that not EVERYTHING I want to watch is on there, but the selection is pretty fantastic overall.

Plus, I like them even more for calling out Verizon. You go, Netflix!

Why bother with 140 characters when a picture says a thousand words?!

I love the filters, it's incredibly easy to use, and I love that I can sync it up to my Twitter and Facebook.

Sure, because of sites like this I now have a ton of selfie pictures in my Facebook feed, but really, that just helps me know who I should de-friend after awhile. Plus, what a lovely forum for me to post thousands of pictures of my dog doing things that I find adorable. Like existing.

I realize that people are probably removing me for that reason. BUT PUPPY IN TSHIRTS!!!!

Y'know, when I actually type it I realize how crazy that sounds. Unfriend away.

Anywho, great stuff, InstaGram! I'm a big fan of you!

FINALLY! I can learn how to please a man!

Thank goodness this site can guide me through giving the perfect blow job (an ever changing art form), do my hair in a pleasing just-rolled-out-of-bed fashion that will only take me an hour, figure out how to lose weight BECAUSENOONEWILLLOVEMEWITHTHESELASTFIVEPOUNDS, and read a compelling article about a celebrity of great stature; like a Kardashian or one of the Pretty Little Liars.

All wrapped up nicely with an excerpt from a romance novel and a horrifying account of being roofied or a near death experience. Wow.

What. A. Page turner.

If you'll excuse me, I need to get off the computer before a man learns that I have internet access.

I haven't used the site, but I have seen the product of this matching site!

I met so many single serving friends through my roommate's efforts. It brought up a lot of questions:
-Do I tell them my real name?
-Do I make them pancakes in the morning?
-If I harvest their organs, will anyone miss them?

Upon visiting the site, it seems well put together. The format is simple to use and clean looking, and it definitely puts you in touch with matches.

So if you're looking for some action, go to Ok Cupid! Save Plenty of Fish or Match for when you're looking for something more substantial.

Dear Travelzoo,

This is a love letter. Are you beautiful? Mmmm... you're pretty but let's not be hyperbolic and say you're gorgeous. I mean, you're definitely not fugly or anything! (4 stars!) You could try a little harder but we all know that it's what's on the inside that counts....

Such a fantastic podcast!
Duncan has a knack for narrative history, taking all the disparate stories and facts and weaving it all together into a story that's fun and engaging.
It's also very well researched.
Would highly recommend to anyone with an interest in history.

I think the site looks dull now. I hope it evolves into more modern design. And also consider user experience.

I heartily agree with the reviews on this podcast series left so far by other listeners. I've not yet listened to Mike Duncan's History of Rome podcast (though I'm now inspired to do so), but the History of Byzantium podcast is a tour de force from Robin. He has done a sterling and balanced job...

I have found the History of English podcast absolutely riveting; in fact, I 'binged- listened' my way through the first 100 or so episodes, and am very relieved that there are clearly many more to come :-). History via etymology - a great concept, well-delivered by Kevin. Highly recommended.
