My late mother embroidered the birds. She died 7 years ago, age 90. Today my niece adopted 2 little girls. My Aunt Lucy made these pillows so the girls would have a gift from their Great-Grandma. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

The Weird Reason Why So Many Turtles Are Delaying Flights at JFK -
The Weird Reason Why So Many Turtles Are Delaying Flights at JFK
"Turtles can be a major hazard on the runway, and they've been responsible for many a delayed flight. Diamondback terrapins crawl into JFK from nearby Jamaica Bay Wildlife Refuge, but they didn't start causing major problems until a few years ago. Airport has since removed hundreds of the turtles and laid down miles of black tubing under the airport's perimeter fence. Russell Burke of Hofstra University has been working with Port Authority's chief wildlife biologist Laura Francoeur to study the turtle problem since it started. (Yes, airports often have wildlife biologists, but they're usually most occupied with birds.) Their work involves making casts of the shells of turtles they find in JFK. Turtles shells have rings like trees that give away their age. That's when Burke noticed a pattern: the turtles were mostly seven to nine years old. Did something happen seven to nine years ago?" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Indeed, in 2008, an outbreak of distemper killed many of the raccoons in the safe wildlife refuge. Raccoons are voracious eaters of turtles—they usually wipe out 95 percent of newborn turtle hatchlings. Without raccoons, hypothesizes Burke, the lucky turtles survived to spill out into the airport. An unlucky few, however, have been hit by airplanes instead. " - Jessie
Study finds people would rather electrocute themselves than spend 15 minutes alone with their thoughts. - Seriously, Science? | -
Study finds people would rather electrocute themselves than spend 15 minutes alone with their thoughts. - Seriously, Science? |
"This study–published in the tip top journal Science, no less–found that when participants were asked to spend 6 to 15 minutes in a room by themselves with no distractions, most had a very difficult time doing it. In fact, the authors found that “simply being alone with their own thoughts for 15 min was apparently so aversive that it drove many participants to self-administer an electric shock that they had earlier said they would pay to avoid.” (Unsurprisingly, more men than women chose to shock themselves.)" - Eivind from Bookmarklet

weird sample group. i don't mind being alone with my thoughts, it's what we did before electronic toys were everywhere (and i'm including television and recorded music here). WTF is wrong with ppl who can't bear to examine the contents of their own minds? and i say this as someone with major depression and panic disorder. really, what's sitting in their heads that's this awful, or are they just THAT easily bored? - Big Joe Silence
I was wondering why this sounded familiar - is this a meta study? I don't find it particularly surprising - most people who aren't guests of the penal system are rarely without some sort of stimuli to occupy their minds. Something to look at, smell, touch, eat - a room full of colors, pictures, textures. Ambient noise from your home and environment. There's a reason why solitary confinement is so punishing. - Jennifer Dittrich
They also studied college students not people of various ages. It was 100 people and they excluded one guy who shocked himself a ridiculous amount of times because it was "weird." - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
so basically the study was a load of crap. - Big Joe Silence
"To see whether the difficulty with “just thinking” is distinctive to college students, in study 9 we recruited community participants at a farmer’s market and a local church. The participants ranged in age from 18 to 77 (median age=48.0 years)." And it's not necessarily "wrong" to remove outliers. - Eivind from Android
I've spent hours staring at the ceiling and just thinking. It's a nice break from doing stuff all the freaking time. No comment on study, just throwing that out here. :) - Jenny H. from Android

As the distance between us diminished she did not grow much from the dot she first appeared as on the the horizon. When we passed on the sidewalk it became apparent why. She was a midget.

Super typhoon speeding north to Japan | Al Jazeera America -
"A super typhoon described as a "once in decades storm" was heading north for Japan on Monday, set to rake the southern Okinawa island chain with heavy rain and powerful winds before making landfall on Kyushu, Japan's westernmost main island. Typhoon Neoguri was already gusting at more than 150 mph and may pick up still more power as it moves north, growing into an "extremely intense" storm by Tuesday, the Japan Meteorological Agency (JMA) said." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Typhoon = one of the most destructive natural forces known to man. Neoguri = Korean for "raccoon." Coincidence? I THINK NOT. - Jessie

LB hates stale candy!
Inspired by Barry: my dream last night involved FFeeps mailing me laundry to do for them and mail back (the Vicar sent in a particularly garish Hawaiian shirt). I was amused at all the dog hair getting onto the clean clothes as I was folding them.
So, you know, it's kind of like my life. With postage. - LB hates stale candy! from Android
