Telling myself "It's going to be OK" probably won't make any significant difference in outcomes, but it's probably better than telling myself "You're doomed."
We're all doomed, but it's okay. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
There's such a fine line between acceptance and resignation :) - Victor Ganata

Boehner Drops Obama Lawsuit; Says It Would Mean Doing Something : The New Yorker
"WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) dropped his plans to sue President Obama on Friday, explaining to reporters, “I realized it would mean doing something.” In a brief appearance before the press, Speaker Boehner talked about his gradual realization that “filing a lawsuit requires effort and, yes, work.” “I came to the conclusion that while suing the President would be the best thing for the American people, it would also require that I do something,” he said, struggling to retain his composure. “And that would be a betrayal of everything I stand for.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
" Mr. Boehner’s decision drew praise from fellow Republicans, including Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Kentucky), who called it “courageous.” “I know this was a very difficult decision for John,” McConnell said. “But at the end of the day you have to be true to your core values.” " - Jessie

Posit: There is one switch in everyone's house that has an undetermined purpose.
There was one in the living room, but we figured it out. It controls the outlet on the opposite wall, presumably because there is no overhead lighting. - NOT THE CRICKET
Spirit line? - Meg VMeg from Android
There has been one such switch in every dwelling in which I've resided, bar the last one, where the purpose of the switch was undetermined until I traced it back to a couple of unterminated wires near the hot water tank and determined that it had no purpose, though had probably once been intended to control an immersion heater. - Slippy: Potato Croquette
I just finally figured out the mystery switch I have - it's for the motion activated lights on the side of my house. They don't turn on in the day, and only when there's motion, so that took a bit. - Jennifer Dittrich
My house is old and small, so I know what all the switches do. But the light switch for the back porch is where the kitchen's light switch should be, so other people are always confused. The kitchen's light switch is way across the room, next to a door we don't use. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
"In my house there's this light switch that doesn't do anything. Every so often I would flick it on and off just to check. Yesterday, I got a call from a woman in Germany. She said, "Cut it out."" --Steven Wright. - Betsy

Christie: I Would Bring Traffic Over the Border to a Standstill : The New Yorker
"IOWA CITY (The Borowitz Report)— Testing the political waters in Iowa today, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie said that if he is elected President, he would bring the flow of illegal immigrants over the U.S.-Mexico border to a virtual standstill. “There are ways of keeping people from getting to where they want to go,” Christie said, claiming that he was the only Republican hopeful with the hands-on experience necessary to fix the border crisis. The New Jersey governor was vague about how he would halt traffic over the border, but exuded confidence that he was the right man for the job. “I’d make a few phone calls,” he said. “It would get done.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
A few phone calls? LOL - Jenny H. from Android

ah the misadventures of me. nothing too heavy. ended up staying at the pub past close with one of the owners and a few other dudes. he's the owner I know the least and his wife is a rad lady I'd love to be friends with. they both seem a little stand-offish to me so I thought it might be a way to get friendlier with them, plus maybe learn something about one of the other regulars who was there, but it just turned into a pissing contest between the guys for the owner's attention, so I left. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich

Scoble, Alex Scoble
It has taken me a long time and many hours of personal experience (is that redundant?) to learn that if after point and counterpoint two people don't agree, it is very unlikely that they will come to agreement with further argument.
So unless one is looking for an evening of fun, arguments and trolling, it's best to stop there. I'm sure the people of friendfeed wish I had learned this 3 years ago. :D - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I disagree. - Akiva
That's not really a point, but I disagree with your disagreement. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Although, I'm not exactly sure what you are disagreeing to, so yes. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
In all seriousness, I'd go a few rounds of point/counterpoint before I assess whether it's worth further discussion. - Akiva
Alex, according to Steam you've been playing APB Reloaded for 2 weeks straight. Please log out. - Rodfather from Android
Agreed with Akiva. I have frequently been in argu-sations where one party or the other wasn't really swayed (or had their viewpoint expanded) until after about 3 or so rounds. After that, the likelihood definitely falls off a cliff, though. - Chieze Okoye
You are wrong!!!! - NOT THE CRICKET

Invitation to hang with the band was sweet. Then I left bc the last band was terrible. Now I am at a regular spot for a night cap and stumbled into some local drama. Oy. Change of venue is always a gamble.
Ok. Changed venues again and made the right call. So we end the night on a high note. Gentleman friend relayed a conversation with a lady friend about me that was very complimentary. So it's a good night. Weirdness sandwich, but tasting good all in all. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android

A lil' drab on the outside but kids'll definitely love the inside. "A Japanese design studio decided to build a home but not just any home. This is a home that grasps at your youth and allows you to stay a kid at heart with a smile on your face. After we hit the age of 12 or so the playground just isn’t “cool” anymore and we are forced to repress our feelings of badly wanting to jump on the swings or fly down a giant slide! Well the design studio LEVEL has made it possible to relive these repressed feelings of joy in the privacy of your home where none of your friends can judge you. Okay this house is also designed for children to play in but don’t let them take all the fun. Check this out." - rönin from Bookmarklet

An interesting aside to the glasswork carrying part of my budget is that I've begun to think of the value of things as number of hours worked. Tank of gas - 4-5 hours, dinner out 2-3 hours, mall brand makeup 2 hours, and so on. Using labor instead of price to determine value has had a great deal of impact on my spending decisions.
Not that I wont splurge, or overspend ... trust me I will ... but when I do it feels like a more informed decision and that I'm weighing my time against my 'want' and more often than not I put the 'want' back on the shelf. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Also interesting. Time as value seems to make me work ahead for things rather than behind. I need to go visit my mom before she blows a fuse over how long its been since I've visited. I've set a goal amount and plan on spending the next 4-6 weekends trying to reach it instead of blowing up a credit card and paying it off later. - Shannon - GlassMistress
