Find the second porter door - it should be open - and descend to the third deck. Crossing the hall, go 20 meters to the left. Enter the room. In the corner of the room is a small safe.

The Verge: 'Offline: how my creativity got killed' →
“I think it’s because it’s about consumption; you need to find the perfect “content” to show off your sound system. I guess that’s the word I hate the most: “content.” It suggests an empty terabyte on your DVR to fill, 40 hours of evening free time to consume, a distribution pipeline to monetize. At some point, do I consume content, or does it consume me?”
Me: Anyway, talking about a will is horrible and I don't suggest you ever do it ever ever.
Jeremiah: I probably won't. I want my death to be as big a burden to as many people as possible.
lessig: There is no way to express the sadness of this day. There will be many words, eventually, to express its anger. This story will infuriate you. For now, to the co-creator of RSS, of the Creative Commons architecture, of part of Reddit, and of endless love and inspiration and friendships, rest. We are all incredibly sorry to have let you down.

Me: I have a pimple near my nipple and I tried to pop it but it didn't pop all the way and now my nipple hurts.
Boyfriend: That rap was pretty good till the end!
Me: It wasn't a rap. It was a testimony.
Boyfriend: Then why did it have a phat beat?
Me: That's the Holy Ghost you're feeling.
I Will Not Participate in the Chick-Fil-A Debate
I believe the entire Chik-fil-A ‘debate’ is childish. It’s deeply saddening that the cultural wars have devolved to the point where America is divided over a second-rate chicken fast food chain. It’s childish that several high-profile politicians have voiced their opposition to Chick-fil-A; it’s just as childish that several high-profile politicians have voiced...
