…It’s Website Wednesday: Overheard.it?

Overheard.it

Overheard.it is a Twitter quote aggregator that gathers together everything and anything that gets tweeted with the word “overheard” at the start, and puts it all in one place for your perusing pleasure.

From the very beginning, Twitter was used as an easy way to share funny quotes that you heard with the world, and Overheard.it wants to make sure those quotes don’t just make it to someone’s immediate followers.

Be warned though, a visit to Overheard.it shows you all of the dumb and/or funny things that are being said around the world at any one moment, and you may quickly loose your taste for humanity.

Prepare to become addicted to eavesdropping.

Girls Reading Books

The English language is by no means easy, which is why so many people butcher it so badly.

Unfortunately, even if you’re familiar with the words that are in common use, you’re probably still led astray by common misunderstandings.

Dick Scale

To clear up some of the confusion, Cracked has put together a list of the 9 Words That Don’t Mean What You Think, and included a dick scale so you can see just how big of a dick you are if you correct people on each mistake.

Irregardless of the ironic titles, I think that for this post, I’m going to peruse the Internet until I can find something better; because it’s deceptively simple to rely on the plethora of info that’s out there.

Bemused?
