Around the Web Wednesday

  • A clever use of closed-captioning encoding: a man has come up with a system that searches closed captions for certain words, like "Kardashian" or "Lohan," and automatically mutes the television when those subjects are covered. I think this is hilarious. More info here.
  • Have you heard of DeafMD.org? It's health education in American Sign Language. According to a post at InMyLingo, it was created "to improve the health literacy, to eliminate health disparities, and to promote the overall health and wellness of our underserved population."
  • One of my favorite UFC fighters, Matt Hamill, has retired. He says, "The UFC has been extremely good to me and given me an opportunity to make a great living. That exposure has allowed me options outside the octagon as well. I just don't have it in me to fight anymore and my last two performances have shown that." I'm so sad!
  • And your video today... another bearded dragon video. (I just love them.) Here is a four-year-old beardie drinking from a juicebox straw.
