Be still my beating heart, you can now make GIFs directly from YouTube!!!

Dreams DO come true. This feature isn’t live on every channel, but luckily It’s Okay To Be Smart is one of the first to test this new feature from YouTube.

If you want to make a GIF of a video, here’s what you do:

  1. Find the thing you want to GIF
  2. Click “Share” beneath the video on the watch page
  3. Click GIF, move the sliders, add text if you want to
  4. Profit

You can find this feature on lots of our favorite channels, so if you’ll excuse me I have some GIFs to go make.

Share your creations with me by tagging them with #itsokaytobesmart or hollerin’ at me on Twitter!

I need an extension for my research project because I spent all month trying to figure out whether learning Dvorak would help me type it faster.

Life at work driven by fear of auditors.

As an auditor, this stuff bothers us almost as much as you. If, say, bid thresholds are too low, they should be changed... but in the meantime, we have to enforce them.

dukeofwolf: I try to remind myself that the auditor-as-executioner fear is just a symptom of deeply dysfunctional management culture, which is going to make the experience unpleasant for every side.

acdha, audits are so much more efficient with auditee cooperation, we actually get trained on reducing audit anxieties and try to plan things to reduce tension. Also, I wish everyone had your perspective.

Here’s a much shorter version of last night’s Bill Nye vs. Ken Ham evolution vs. creationism debate, or maybe every evolution vs. creationism debate, from Beatrice the Biologist (She is also on Tumblr! Her comics are awesome and sciencey, so go check them out!)

Everyone just needs to stop arguing, because evolution is here to stay. People need to explore ways to make evolution fit alongside their beliefs, not instead of them. And then we need to all go get some yogurt.

Rose Eveleth has a great story (and some awkward old videos) over at Smithsonian that asks why Americans love watching celebrities debate about evolution. We’ve been doing it for decades, and it’s not helping.
