How to Stop Giving a F*ck What People Think

shortformblog:

F*@*! the (perceived) haters, Lifehacker contributor Sean Kim says:

Believe it or not, we’re not that special. We go through our days thinking about how other people might be judging us. But the truth is—those people are thinking the exact same thing. No one in today’s “smartphone-crazed” society has time in their schedule to think more than a brief second about us. The fact of the matter is, when we do have time get our thoughts straight, we’re too busy thinking about ourselves and our own shortcomings—not others.P

study done by the National Science Foundation claims that people have, on average, 50,000 plus thoughts a day. This means that even if someone thought about us ten times in one day, it’s only 0.02%of their overall daily thoughts. It is a sad but simple truth that the average person filters their world through their ego, meaning that they think of most things relating to “me” or “my.” This means that unless you have done something that directly affects another person or their life, they are not going to spend much time thinking about you at all.

This isn’t just good advice. This is how you survive Tumblr without going insane.

Too true

Meet Gilbert P. Hyatt. Hyatt, 75, is purportedly responsible for a lot of the fundamental technology you use in computers these days. The LCD screen? His idea, according to a patent claim he made 35 years ago. The ability for electronic signals to control machinery? Also his idea, based on a 43-year-old patent claim. There’s one problem, though: The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has been sitting on these patent claims for decades, with no end in sight.
It’s not a total loss for Hyatt. See, he did receive a patent for the microprocessor back in 1990—something which earned him hundreds of millions of dollars before the patent was invalidated.
But he’s not taking his in-flux patent claims lying down. He filed a lawsuit not too long ago asking the USPTO to get off their butts and take action on his patent claims. Wanna see the tech industry get disrupted by a couple of fundamental patents? Watch this case.

This is a real panda
China has this “panda diplomacy” and this one will be sent to Japan as an friendship envoy. For the safety reason he sits as a passenger with his feeder, not in a cage. Fastening the seat belt, wearing a diaper, eating bamboos
