The 7 Players on Every LLWS Team The Little League World Series is the unique World Series that includes teams from all over the world. But no matter where the teams come from, they all include these 7 players. #1 — The Crier He was a valuable member of the team all tournament season. If he falls down a strike, he starts to tear up. Thankfully, The Crier's awful performance usually cuts into his playing time, because no one wants to see a 12-year-old kid piss his pants on national television. #2 — The Giant Power Hitter This is one freakishly enormous kid. The Giant Power Hitter always plays first base, but it's the only time he spends on first because when he makes contact with the baseball it's always a home run. #3 — The Kid Whose Dad Is Risking His Job To Watch Him Play This kid's dad only gets two weeks of vacation every year from the factory. Or he thinks his kid is okay but really, really hates his job and wants to lose it for a reason that seems noble. It's one of these. Note: this kid is often also The Crier. Wow.

White People Throwing Gang Signs (PHOTOS) Some things are so ingrained in popular culture that we forget their true meaning. Take the ubiquitous gang sign. Who among us in a time of weakness has not resorted to that old saw when presented with the question, "What should I do with my hands in my marketing department's 'fun photo?'" But what is a gang sign, really, and what is its purpose? "Throwing up" a gang sign (e.g., "Stacking," "walk") with the hands is one of the most known and obvious forms of "claiming." So, remember, next time you see someone throwing a gang sign who really shouldn't be, don't be so quick to write them off. Submit your own photo to the gallery!

Bananas and Monkeys Original source unknown. (But the story appears to have some basis in fact.) Start with a cage containing five monkeys. Inside the cage, hang a banana on a string and place a set of stairs under it. After a while, another monkey makes an attempt with the same result - all the other monkeys are sprayed with cold water. Now, put away the cold water. After another attempt and attack, he knows that if he tries to climb the stairs, he will be assaulted. Next, remove another of the original five monkeys and replace it with a new one. Most of the monkeys that are beating him have no idea why they were not permitted to climb the stairs or why they are participating in the beating of the newest monkey. After replacing all the original monkeys, none of the remaining monkeys have ever been sprayed with cold water. And that, my friends, is how company policies are made.

I know it’s not always happy but today it is because Creatives Couples is back! I’m very excited because this one of two times you’ll be seeing the lovely Lisa Yoder, a developer from Philadephia, on the blog this week. Lisa currently works at Urban Outfitters as a developer and is married to the very talented Chad Ostrowski who is a Ruby developer at PipelineDeals. I’m extremely jealous of their double-developer power. What makes you a creative couple? Lisa: We’re both professional web developers, which is a pretty creative endeavor unto itself. Chad: The band that Lisa referenced will be reborn this year, but we’re working much harder to make it a shared endeavor this time (previously it was mostly my baby). How does your relationship inspire you creatively? Chad: Hmm… Tough question! Lisa: Chad is constantly working on a new project or mulling over a new problem. Chad: Ok, Lisa’s answer reminded me of something. Lisa: Yes and no. Chad: Haha, yes.

Price Tag Fails Some of these might be innocent mistakes, but I imagine most of them are the result of bored workers. What Is Globalization? Finally, a definition of globalization that one can understand and to which we now can relate: Question: What is the truest definition of Globalization? Answer: Tragically, Princess Diana’s death. Question: Why? An English princess with an Egyptian boyfriend crashes in a French tunnel, driving a German car with a Dutch engine, driven by a Belgian who was drunk on Scottish whiskey, followed closely by Italian paparazzi on Japanese motorcycles; treated by an American doctor, using Brazilian medicines. This is sent to you by an American, using Bill Gate’s technology and you are probably reading this on your computer, that uses Taiwanese chips and a Korean monitor, assembled by Bangladeshi workers in a Singapore plant; transported by Indian lorry-drivers, hijacked by Indonesians, unloaded by Sicilian longshoremen and trucked to you by illegal Mexican workers… And that is what Globalization is. ~ source unknown ~
