    @mrgan Hunter’s chicken is a popular dish in the UK - http://www.schwartz.co.uk/Recipes/Chicken/Hunters-Chicken.aspx Not exactly the kind of thing you’d find in a fancy restaurant though; it’s mostly served in pubs.

      Edward Snowden's live Q&A: “Ask yourself: if I were a Chinese spy, why wouldn't I have flown directly into Beijing? I could be living in a palace petting a phoenix by now.” http://www.guardian.co.uk/world/2013/jun/17/edward-snowden-nsa-files-whistleblower

        That thing I mentioned I coded up all by myself? 307 lines of JavaScript, nothing fancy, just parsing text. I finished it up and sent it to some testers, and I just found that it HARD-REBOOTS MY PHONE. WITH JAVASCRIPT. This is how bad a programmer I am.

                @rands Who, why, where else. The about page is the first thing I look for whenever I land on an unfamiliar blog.

                  @tenderlove We spent a while there while backpacking around Japan a few years ago and really loved it. The castle is awesome and the nearby Adachi Museum of Art is incredible: http://www.japan-guide.com/e/e5806.html

                    Sad that RubyGems is down but happy that I get to listen to Hocus Pocus. http://rubygems.org/ (and for those reading this after it's fixed, this is the video on the 'down for maintenance' page: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4ouPGGLI6Q#!)

                      Implementing GoCardless: Sign up, read the documentation, install the gem, BAM. Implementing HSBC card payments: Spend hours on the phone, curse the poor documentation, boggle at the outdated code samples, lose the will to live, sob uncontrollably.

                          Last night we were eating supper when, completely out of the blue, our 3 year old looked up from her mashed potato and said “Why do people die?” I chose to go with the practical explanation, explaining that if they didn’t then we’d soon run out of space.

                                  Did that #AppApp global push notification remind anyone else of The Lawnmower Man ending? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=doAnB5_eDnw&t=10m10s
