Ryan Reynolds, Day Jobs, and Squares!

Heyo!

If you’re coming to this page from our home site, you’ll notice that we’re working on a new look for Fierce and Nerdy. So if you see something, you absolutely love, can’t stand, or feel is missing, please let us know. We hope to have the new design all firmed up by Monday.

Meanwhile, here’s some good old-fashioned procrastination to get you through the weekend.

Cheers!

Yes, this is a Star Trek wedding ring set. Why? Well, b/c geeks be marrying up in here. Click on the pic to see more nerdy rings of fidelity.

1. Sad but true, here are 8 reasons you’ll probably never be able to upload your mind into a computer. The most interesting obstacles: the hard wall issue of transporting your consciousness into a new body and uh, how would we go about testing this ish out? [i09, "You'll Probably Never Upload Your Mind Into a Computer]

2. I’m always complaining that not enough private vendors use/know about the Square payment device. But apparently Silicon Valley doesn’t have that issue. Even the sex workers there are using the clever device to accept payments these days!  [Gawker, "Sex Workers Are Using Square For Tech Clients and Business Is Soaring"]

3. Our friend Delia Hauser is doing pregnancy so much better than most–especially me. She’s even put together a genius system for keeping her and her husband in food and snacks for the first month (way harder than you think if you’ve never had kids). Definitely worth clicking through if you’ve got a baby on the way. [Martha Stalwart, "Frozen Food Month! (or two)"] 

4. I love this list of Best Day Jobs for Screenwriters. Wish I’d had it when I moved out here to write. [GalleyCat, "What Are the Best Day Jobs For Writers?"]

5. Ugh! I promised myself that I’d never, ever seen another Ryan Reynolds movie after he chose the awful GREEN LANTERN stall out over the sure to be awesome Deadpool franchise. But this R.I.P.D. movie looks soooo good. Like TRUE GRIT meets MEN IN BLACK. What to do? What to do?
