It’s different in Asia; technically the Japanese have been wearing them since the 1950s and my family in Korea has my entire life. It’s not always for illness though. A lot of it is for pollution, and when I was living in Tokyo, it was culturally seen as the polite thing to do if you weren’t feeling well. It’s Read more

These particular iMacs are AIOs. You *can* get a traditional desktop too (the cheese grater) or a Mac mini–but this particular rumor ain’t about them.

A fun Kinja bug is that certain ad blockers will erase any backlinks to an Amazon product. As this article contains a lot of links to Amazon products for reference, it probably looks like a bunch of words are randomly missing.

I also did not get a CD-compatible stereo in my room until I was 13. If I wanted to listen to CDs I had to very politely ask my Mom to use hers and even then, I was limited to....Celine Dion or Rimsky-Korsakov.
