Selection of My Twitter Favorites, Edition 16

Twitter is a microblogging service where people answer the question "What are you doing?" via 140-character messages from their cellphone, laptop or desktop. You can select the messages you find useful, amusing, or both. Here is the 16th edition of My Twitter Favorites (the oldest post is at the bottom, the newest at the top):
