The Latest & Greatest Resources Online

Unfortunately, shuffling through your pages and organizing your online tools can be a hassle for everyone. When organizing my own weekly bookmarks this morning, I lost track of time and ended up spending 2+ hours picking the right pages, organizing by categories and, for the most part, getting distracted. That’s why I created a list of recent web pages & online tools for HC- saving you time and bringing you online updates you’ll definitely use at some point in your college career. There are so many useful sites out there today, and this is only a fragment of the lists I have put together in the past. I will make sure to keep it updated and repost any new sites or list changes that I make. Anyway, here’s my recent list of the latest and greatest resourceful web pages today.

25 Handy Words That Simply Don’t Exist In English

Interestingly enough it's the number 1 second language used worldwide - which is why the total number of people who speak English, outnumber those of any other. But whilst it's the most widely spoken language, there's still a few areas it falls down on (strange and bizarre punctuation rules aside).

Adorn your wall with rasterbations.

A rasterbator is a program that takes any image and expands it to any size desired whilst keeping its original quality. The way this works is that the program changes the image into a half-toned one. THAT basically means the program turns the chosen image into a lot of small dots that will not look like much up close, but from a sufficient distance they resume their original shapes. Besides using the name to make immature and hilarious puns, the best part of rasterbating is the fact that it is so customizable. One can upload any picture they would like, choose the size (up to twenty meters) by selecting the amount of pages to print it on, and also decide whether the image is achromatic, monochromatic or has full color. There are many downloadable or online programs that will rasterbate your images, but this one here seems to be the best.

A very small minority could be characterized as high-functioning sociopaths and/or psychopaths. And it's not that the majority is "normal" as in not being afflicted by all kinds of personality, psychological, and psychiatric disorders... If you watch enough TV in the U.S., you'll be bombarded with advertisement for all kinds of psychotropic drugs. There is an angle to everything you say and do; to every relationship you choose to "nurture.
