Reactions to various status updates from Facebook friends who will go unnamed here

* Deadmau5 is terrible, and you obviously know nothing about house. Please refrain from listening to music in the future.
* Your entertainingly high level of self-delusion is the only reason I haven't blocked you.
* Okay, that's actually pretty funny.
* You're on this site too often.
* Please just find a tenth person for this fantasy league so we can get it going.
* You haven't changed as a person since you were 15. It frightens me that you're becoming a teacher.
* The smartass comments you leave remind me why we're friends. Never stop.

Five things I love about hot showers

* They let you think about the day ahead
* Conversely, you can stop worrying about things and just let your mind wander
* It's like being wrapped in a blanket of warmth
* Gives you a few minutes to yourself to listen to music and relax
* So fresh, so clean

Six reasons I'm stoked about the return of Breaking Bad

* A (sort-of) resolution to last season's cliffhanger
* The show seems committed to escalating the insanity and intensity with every season
* The year plus gap between this season and the last makes the wait for the new Batman movie more bearable by comparison
* Walter White is probably the only television character who fundamentally changes over the course of the series
* The acting is consistently great
* It's the best show on television by a wide margin
