Are Tomatoes a Fruit or a Vegetable? (And How to Use the Tomato Strategy to Win Against All Odds)

Not so fast. If we just go along with the seeds, cucumbers, corn, green beans and walnuts would come under fruits too. Practical definition of an object comes from how it is used, not from what it has. From function – not form. Because tomatoes are used in savoury and not in sweet cooking – and are never served as desserts, they are not fruits. They are vegetables.

Coping With a Broken Engagement

I certainly hope that none of my readers are going through the same ordeal as I am, because it sucks and I wouldn’t wish it on anyone. But I have been fumbling my way through life for eight days since the breakup now and have tried a number of things to help myself feel better. Many of them have worked, many have not, and I wanted to share my coping strategies. These might be helpful for getting through any major crisis, in fact – not just a breakup.

12 of the funniest marketing videos

Every once in a while, reading becomes boring. Reading not only becomes boring, but blogging also gets on our nerves because we cannot get out what we’re trying to explain in the fullest, most visual context. Well, I have found the solution to that problem! These videos are the perfect reminder that sometimes we take ourselves too seriously, and sometimes, its ok to sit back and laugh at ourselves, and our jobs.

The Myth About Batman

For all that I do, and all that I try to do, and for as many places as I try to be to help others, I can only do the work of one man. That means that I need a whole cast of characters to help, a whole bunch of fellow crusaders who have similar interests, or supporting goals, or who are just generally great people.

ABCs: Everything I need to know about life I learned in my twenties.

I’m sure you’ve heard the saying people teach what they want to learn. The past month for me has been facilitating what I wanted to learn. By coming up with what I saw to be the major areas of life that twentysomethings deal with, and then asking for the community to contribute I’ve learned so much.

Free Tools for the Beginning Book Designer

See, I’ve been thinking about novice book designers starting out. It can be an expensive proposition when one begins, I realize, all while striving to get one’s foot in the door. Hardware is just the initial investment.

10 seamless website designs

One of the challenges in designing websites is to create a layout which takes into account all the different screen sizes at which it may be viewed. Some websites use fluid layouts (where sections of content will automatically resize to fit the screen dimensions) to get around this.

20+ 8-Bit Inspirations – Web Design, Graphic Design, Gadgets and Items Inspired by Retro 8-Bit Graphics

If you are like me, then you grew up in an era full of retro things like Blocky Cell Phones, Blocky Graphics, and Rubik’s Cube. The world was a very different place back then. But Even though we have smooth graphics and amazing resolution images these days, Its still nice to look back on the good old 80’s 8-bit graphics for inspiration.
