except for adults can see "snuffy" now - because someone complained that kids who report weird sightings shouldn't be ignored. - Christina Pikas
"someone complained" -> "In an interview on a Canadian telethon that was hosted by Bob McGrath, Snuffy's performer, Martin P. Robinson, revealed that Snuffy was finally introduced to the main human cast mainly due to a string of high profile and sometimes graphic stories of pedophilia and sexual abuse of children that had been aired on shows such as 60 Minutes and 20/20.

Oil Eating Microbes Have Worldwide Underground Connections - Scientific American -
"Living deep underground ain't easy. In addition to hellish temperatures and pressures, there's not a lot to eat. Which is why oil reservoirs are the microbes’ cornucopia in this hidden realm. Microbes feast on many oil reservoirs, but it has been unclear how the micro-organisms got to those locales. One proposal has been that the microbes colonize a pool of dead algae corpses and then go along for the ride as the pool gets buried deeper and deeper and the algae slowly become oil. That’s the so-called "burial and isolation" hypothesis." - imabonehead from Bookmarklet
"Researchers surveyed the genetics of oil-eating microbes from around the world. They found that populations from Nevada to the North Sea matched up almost exactly. They also determined that microbes in the North Sea appear to have swapped genes with Japanese microbes despite the locations being more than 8,000 kilometers apart on the Earth’s surface." - imabonehead

Oregon Will Soon Have The Nation's First Openly Bisexual Governor | ThinkProgress -
Oregon Will Soon Have The Nation's First Openly Bisexual Governor | ThinkProgress
"The state of Oregon will make history this week when it swears in the current Secretary of State Kate Brown (D) as governor, making her the governor in the country to be openly bisexual. Gov. John Kitzhaber (D), who had just been reelected to his fourth term in November, resigned on Friday amid questions about the improper influence his fiancée, Cylvia Hayes, may have had over the distribution over contracts distributed in the state. Though the 67-year-old governor repeatedly denied allegations of wrongdoing, he said in a statement Friday that his resignation would be effective Feb.18. Because the state of Oregon doesn’t have a lieutenant governor like most other states, the secretary of state will succeed Kizhaber. Brown wrote about her bisexuality in a 1992, when she was serving in the state’s House of Representatives. “I believe it was during my early 30’s that I figured out who, or what, I am. But it wasn’t until it was written in the Oregonian newspaper that I was bisexual that... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

#SaturdayFF I've recently discovered what my personal theme for 2015 is going to be: "Do. The. Work." Simple enough, right? I noticed that I had become fairly lackadaisical in some life tasks and was tending towards "I'll do that later" reactions for too many things. Hopefully, my first thought will now be "Do. The. Work." and I Do The Damn Thing.

"Midwinter, a romantic trip at sunset, surrounded by water, steaming and relaxing with family and friends while sailing through the canals, or laughing with colleagues in ice cold lakes as you luxuriate in a warm bath. It’s all possible with the HotTug! Don’t just enjoy a hot tub in your backyard, enjoy it wherever you are, while the landscape changes around you! The HotTug is the world’s first wood-fired hot tub that you can sail or tug(boat) that you can bathe in. Float down a river in the middle of winter, sipping a cold drink and soaking in the steaming hot water - a truly fantastic never-to-be-forgotten experience." - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

For all I complain about living in the OC, I have to say that I absolutely love my little town and neighborhood. It's so safe and family-oriented! We live on the foothill & have gorgeous sunsets with amazing views of Catalina from our apartment & tonight we walked with M to the grocery store for dinner & it was so lovely. Tons of people out walking
with their kids and dogs,just enjoying the weather, neighborhood and being active. Love. <3 - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
I loved walking to the store too. It's about a mile from our house and we just put the groceries in the bottom of the jogging stroller. Awesome. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
Being able to walk places is high on my list of wants when home shopping. So glad you have such a great area to enjoy! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!

How long has it been since you lived with a roommate/housemate? (let's say, shared space with someone who's non-familial and non-romantic, for longer than 6 months) Also, feel free to share your best/worst roommate stories.
About 5 years, give or take. I don't really have any terrible stories, just the normal occasional spats and fights over dishes. - Jennifer Dittrich
I graduated college 20 years ago this spring. I lived in a single room my last two years. So, 22 terrible/great stories. roommates were fine. - ellbeecee
I have never lived with a roommate. I did have a couple dozen floormates in college (19 years ago), and a shared coed bathroom, but we all lived in tiny monastic-cell-like singles. My favorite story from that time involves how someone got busted for his pet rats, and for the rest of the semester we all took turns having them live with us so no one got busted. I also really liked hanging... more... - Marianne
It's been about 8 yrs since I had a housemate (although for the last 4.5 years I've lived with family again so I have a number of the same issues, possibly even worse). Worst is probably the guy who moved in and didn't mention he was bipolar. I was the master tenant and thus responsible when I came home from a road trip to find him sitting drunk on the roof in the middle of trying to... more... - Spidra Webster
Last roommate was December of 2001, so 14 years. I had suite mates until May of 2004, but we all had our own bedrooms. I've never had a housemate or live-in partner. - Soup in a TARDIS
Edited to add "housemate", because that's really what I meant: sharing common areas, not a bedroom necessarily. I'm curious if I'm the only one "here" who shares living space like this (currently, it's out of financial necessity). I've only lived on my own for 2 years of my life, and even when I've lived with significant others, we had housemates. - Meg VMeg
Earlier this month, after I lost my job as the Red Power Ranger, I had an argument with my roommate and ended up stabbing him with a sword. It was self-defense, though. - Stephen Mack

I was starting to say college which would be 20 years but d'oh forgot the whole navy thing living with like 350 of my best buddies in a tin can for a 6 month deployment and then other underway periods of 1week to a couple of months. Of course those would be Navy stories, not roomie stories - Christina Pikas
My first roommate was the worst. She insisted on having sex in the room while I was still in it (like I'd be writing a paper and she'd be banging away) and she didn't "believe" in taking regular showers (maybe once every month or two). She was also cheap as hell, which meant she would only do her laundry when she went home for the holidays (where it was free). When she'd get out of bed in the morning and flip back her duvet a wall of heat and stick would fly across the room. Ugh. - Soup in a TARDIS
Hmm....I guess it's been seven years. I briefly shared a house instead of doing a daily 4 hour commute. It was okay until another person moved in. I found a studio apartment shortly after that. Honestly, I'd say people have more bad roommate stories about me. I just don't like sharing space with most people. My worst experiences were the year I shared a house with two other women while... more... - J. Marie B

Currently have a roommate. Have had roommates consistently for the past...20 years? It's just a comfortable arrangement and I don't really care to change it up much. We respect each others' space and still come together to hang out or share meals. It's kind of like living with family I guess. Nightmare roommates - I've had two, but one was by far the worst. He'd decided it was his god... more... - Hookuh Tinypants

11 years. I sort of miss having housemates, actually, because I truly loved some of my housemate situations, but then every time I think about having one now I get squidgy. - laura x

Grad school. I lived in a big old Victorian house with my best friend from high school (Tim), my high school boyfriend who I dated on and off for a decade (Christian), and my friend's friend (Mary).

!980, my one and only roommate - I was 14, pretending to be 19, and my roommate was a single mother with 2 kids, that I met in a homeless shelter in Santa Monica.

With no money, 2 kids, and no place to go, she was in pretty deep... more... - April Russo

If you don't count my first four months here in DC where I did live in a shared house situation, 8 years. And even then I was living with my parents and we have a pretty decent dynamic. The DC situation taught me I'm not opposed to having roommates, as long as I have my own bathroom. - Katie
since 2004 I think? so...10 years. some of that time i lived with family but yeah...nothing since then. the last roommate i had broke my desire to ever do that again. it was the woman that owned the house and she said she was a vampire, mortician, belly dancer. she liked to come home at 3 in the morning stomping up the stairs in 3 inch boots and when the other dude and i said something to her, her response was "its my house i'll do what i want." she was...interesting. - Sir Shuping is just sir
It's been 51 years (!). Sophomore year of college, first year in student co-op. He probably wasn't a terrible roommate (most of the house was engineering students, and "slacker" was not a 1963 term at UC Berkeley in engineering), but I was happy to get and keep a single the next year. - Walt Crawford
I had a roommate in ketchikan. But she was pretty cool. My first (and only) roommates in college though were horrendous. My freshman year RM his her weed in my backpack once. And she was a tottotal drunk. She spilled her beer all over my homework and wrecked it so I wasn't able to turn in the 50 point assignment. My second roommate was just weird. She picked skin off her feet and ATE it. - Marissa from Android
