Motherfucking Website -
You probably build websites and think your shit is special. You think your 13 megabyte paralax-ative home page is going to get you some fucking Awwward banner you can glue to the top corner of your site. You think your 40-pound jQuery file and 83 polyfills give IE7 a boner because it finally has box-shadow. Wrong, motherfucker. Let me describe your perfect-ass website:
A San Francisco turned Gotham City made a five-year-old Bat Kid’s wish come true.
Above, the San Francisco Chronicle printed a special edition of their paper in honor of Bat Kid, with articles written by none other than Lois Lane and Clark Kent.
Again, best sense of civic pride anywhere.
Hard not to love everything about this. Good job, city.

Why Waiting in Line Is Torture -
Alex Stone on the fascinating psychology behind waiting — particularly at airports:
They found that it took passengers a minute to walk from their arrival gates to baggage claim and seven more minutes to get their bags. Roughly 88 percent of their time, in other words, was spent standing around waiting for their bags.
So the airport decided on a new approach: instead of reducing wait times, it moved the arrival gates away from the main terminal and routed bags to the outermost carousel. Passengers now had to walk six times longer to get their bags. Complaints dropped to near zero.
Also, when it comes to picking “the right line” to be in I never think about this, but so true:
But there’s a curious cognitive asymmetry at work here. While losing to the line at our left drives us to despair, winning the race against the one to our right does little to lift our spirits. Indeed, in a system of multiple queues, customers almost always fixate on the line they’re losing to and rarely the one they’re beating.

Brian Wood: My Ambitionz Az A CrossFitter -
I figured I’d write something that explains the sudden volume of tweets and instagram pics from me having to do with health and CrossFit and diet. I’m sure it came out of nowhere and seems out of place, but it’s been a long time in coming and relates back to the way I make comics.
I made a…
