When Rivers Collide: 10 Incredible Confluences

In geography, a confluence is the meeting of two or more bodies of water. Known also as a conflux, it refers either to the point where a tributary joins a larger river, called the main stem, or where two streams meet to become the source of a river of a new name, such as the confluence of the Monongahela and Allegheny Rivers in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania creating the Ohio River.

Your "Thanks, Captain Obvious" Headline of the Week

Darby Lines tweeted this:

Wondering what he was referring to, I click the link:

Wait…what? Did anyone with a clue edit this article before it got posted?

The "Stunningly Stupid Nonsensical Headline of the Week" Award goes to…

… Business Insider’s Owen Thomas for “If Facebook Gets Any Cheaper Apple Needs To Buy It”. The “logic” behind it is spectacular in its simple-minded wrongheadedness. Harry Marks does a great job skewering it so I have nothing more to add except this cheap shot based on Thomas’ head shot:

Why I Hate the Portland Hipster Community

This right here is exactly why I hate Portland’s hipster community. There’s no goddamned reason for this. We’ve invented perfectly good, safe, easy ways to get into a beer can. But that’s not retro enough for these douchebags. They’ve got to make the simple harder.


It’s a shame too because I love pilsner style beers but I will never drink this.
