Facebook just changed your profile photo to a picture of a cat

Cat pictureJust a day after Facebook decided to replace everybody’s email addresses with email addresses, Facebook decided to release an update that replaces everybody’s profile pictures with a picture of a cat without your permission. This is likely part of Facebook’s ongoing agenda to haz a cheezburger.

For those of you that do not want your profile picture turned into a cat, just follow these simple instructions:

  1. Hover your mouse over your profile picture and click “edit profile picture.”
  2. The “profile pictures option menu” should appear and look like this:
  3. ¬†Click on the circle and select “hidden from timeline.”
  4. Extremely Important: Click “Save” at the bottom of the menu. If you do not click save, Facebook will think that you were just joking, and your profile picture will be turned into a picture of two cats playing with a ball of yarn.

This is what I made at work today

When I’m running on very little sleep, everything seems funny to me.

Here’s something I put together at work today:


It’s like I never left Microsoft!

The pQCT machine

Today, I had the privilege of sticking an arm and a leg in a machine that looks like this:


The entire time, I was thinking, “man, I hope this is the right machine, and I didn’t just stick a limb in their ‘automatic amputation machine’ which was for some reason designed to look identical to the pQCT scanner!”

Also, ever notice that you’re all relaxed and stuff until someone tells you to “hold still”? I was already holding still. Now I’m all nervous!

For those of you who are curious as to what a pQCT scanner is, it’s a time machine. My ankle and wrist have been transported back to the 1920’s where their bone density will be analyzed by a panel of British boffins. The results will be stored in a vault and opened in exactly 3 days from now.
