Don't you want to go to the original thread and see the context?

We sort of feel that having some semblance of context is a good idea and/or that allowing people to favorite from the popular favorite page just contributes to the power law thing where the popular get more popular and everything else just stays the same. Not a big deal either way but I think that's why it's the way it is.

It's just one more example of the MAN keeping you down.

The red ones will be more comfortable, although might get in the way a bit when you drive.

You're doing it wrong! It's not "OK talk to you later." It's Todd Lokken.

Hey! Hey, look! I'm there! He favorited me! I feel special!

However I appear to be competing with around 29633 other favorites. Holy gods.

I keep waiting for a paranoid wingnut somewhere to get all het up over "power law." It sounds so... fascistic. AND IT CONTROLS THE VERY WORDS WE USE TO FORM OUR THOUGHTS.

If you need me, I'll be wearing my long tinfoil tail and shouting statistically improbable words at the bus stop.
