So, my nephew, who is pre-enlisted in the Marines for after college and is a devout Christian, reblogged this over on FB. I felt the undeniable need to respond and did so with this:
1. Torture does not work. The DoD, CIA, and FBI themselves admit this. It has been proven time and again by those agencies and others. - Michael W. May
2. Enemy Combatants, legally known as unlawful combatants, while not subject to the Geneva Convention and treatment of POWs, are entitled to lawful treatment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. As a fighting force, our code of conduct declares we are better than that. - Michael W. May
3. On 18 April 1988, the United States of America signed the United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (commonly known as the United Nations Convention against Torture). On 21 October 1994, we radified it. As a nation, before the eyes of the world, we declared we are better than that. - Michael W. May
4. 657 of the 779 detainees imprisoned at Gantonimo since 2002 have been released. In other words, 92% of those we held indefinitely and tortured we had insufficient evidence to formally charge and bring before a military tribunal. Oops. - Michael W. May
5. As of January, 54 more of those 122 currently held are awaiting release, determined to also have insufficient evidence of guilt. We are still holding people against their will whom we cannot even bring formal charges against, people who may have been tortured. - Michael W. May
6. Christian religions, as well as all other prominent religions, teach love, forgiveness, patience, kindness, and hold high truth. Jesus never preached simulated drowning or deprivation of sleep against ones enemies. He washed their feet. He said to love others as you would yourself, to offer the other cheek when struck, and that what we do to others, we do to Him. - Michael W. May
7. We are better than this. - Michael W. May
It obviously really irked me. - Michael W. May
I made the mistake of clicking through to the OP and the comments made me ill. (will I ever learn?) I hope your nephew reads your words and heeds them. We don't need people joining the military who think like this. My heart sinks at the thought of men and women joining the military with these kinds of ideas in their heads. That's not what it should be about at all. - Hookuh Tinypants
Thank you, Michael. Great info... I saw a post like that and avoided it on my timeline. Feeling compelled to post these points that direction. - SAM
Nicely done. - Melly
Feel free to use liberally. I was adding links to each point, but they are each so easily searched, I figured it was up to detractors to prove them wrong. - Michael W. May

My meat thermometer (not a double-entendre)
It's been making ALL the difference with any meat that I cook: burgers, steaks, chops. I'm actually feeling confident enough to try it out with larger portions: roasts and such. It's totally a difference-maker. I had no idea. - Brent Schaus
They are the best! - Katy S
Can I suggest a probe thermometer for roasts? Instant-read is great, but a probe thermometer means you don't have to open the oven door, lose heat, etc. - Andrew C (✔)
Andrew: for sure! Didn't know that was a thing. Thanks :) - Brent Schaus from iPhone

As I brushed Emily's hair this morning, she said to me "Now I will be beautiful like you, Mummy." <3 #fb
I'm wearing a t-shirt that's been slept in, no bra or pants, messy greasy bed hair, oily spotty face, huge eye bags, I probably smell, and she still thinks I'm beautiful. - Melly
That's because she (like kids everywhere) can see your inner self. - Bren from iPhone
At what age do we get brainwashed about beauty? - Stephan from iPhone
I'm seeing it in her already Stephan and it makes me sad. She will put a dress on and say "Now I'm pretty", like she wasn't before. - Melly

The British government was left in the dark during the Ukraine crisis because its diplomats can’t understand Russian - The Independent
"The UK Government was left in the dark while Russia annexed large parts of Ukraine because British diplomats can’t understand Russian, according to a scathing new report by MPs. Language skills at the Foreign Office are said to have become so poor that officials were unable to adequately advise the Government on the unfolding annexation of the Crimean peninsula. “British diplomacy towards Russia and elsewhere has suffered because of a loss of language skills, particularly in the Foreign Office,” Sir Tony Brenton, a former British ambassador to Moscow, told the House of Lords External Affairs Sub-Committee. “There was quite a lot of complaint in Whitehall after the annexation of Crimea that the Foreign Office had not been able to give the sort of advice that was needed at the time. I think that is regrettable and it marks a change from when I was there.” The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Building in London The Foreign and Commonwealth Office Building in London The revelations came... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

No one could see the color blue until modern times via @BI_Science
define "modern". there's more than a little ancient art with blue in it. - Big Joe Silence
I wonder if a person could learn to see a color that they didn't previously recognize. - Heather
Latin does have a word for blue: caerul(e)us, which means blue like the sky (caelum). So presumably people could distinguish blue by Roman times. - John (bird whisperer)
The article mentions that ancient Egyptian art is an exception in using blue pigments and lapis lazuli. Mainland Greek art mainly used reds, browns, and black, at least in pottery. However, Minoan artists did use blue. For example:,, and - John (bird whisperer)

he App Store now offers nearly 1 million apps from 350,000 developers. Only 25 of those developers, including King (Candy Crush Saga) and Super Cell (Clash of Clans and Hay Day), make 50% of the revenue—approximately $60,000,000 per month.
very good for them! :) - Professor m.v.s.
It's amazing how persistent this phenomena is of a few garnering a large percentage of whatever is in play. - Todd Hoff
It's the power law, and applies in nature as well. - NOT THE CRICKET
That's the name given to the phenomena. Why does it happen is more interesting. - Todd Hoff
In general, it's self-reinforcing feedback loops, whether natural or virtual. It's just a matter of figuring out what the feedback loop is, in the case mentioned it's actually two symbiotic loops with the app store rankings and also network effects. - NOT THE CRICKET
With capital and finance, placing the capital at risk, with expectation of interest in return, capital will grow itself, which allows one to leverage larger supplies on riskier or more marginal interest terms. - NOT THE CRICKET
With business, they often rely on a virtual loop, via obsolescence or invoking a natural loop in status. For example, Apple gives their products a roughly 3 year obsolescence period, and also promote status reasons, which creates a drive in some individuals which has network like effects. - NOT THE CRICKET
With alpha's, they tend to be stronger, and that strength allows them to self-reinforce. Also helps with progenation, which is an aspect driving many parts of life, as life wants to spread and grow. Itself a largely reinforcing cycle. - NOT THE CRICKET
The hardest part is successfully starting the loop, and entering a cycle. That requires a considerable amount of luck. - NOT THE CRICKET

The reason why Brian Williams got into deep trouble for lying about his war experience while Bill O’Reilly hasn’t is that Williams and O’Reilly have different jobs, for different employers.

nigella's version of chicken with 40 cloves of garlic (well, reduced to about a portion and a half)
it was ok, but definitely needs more liquid! got dry even though i used more than the amount of liquid required for the full recipe portions. don't know if i'll make it again. if i'd have more time, i'd probably go for the good old (and juicy!) coq au vin instead. - grizabella
the roasted garlic is great though! and i'm making chicken soup with the leftovers, which is getting to be quite tasty i think. - grizabella

Introducing Japanese "Wine" for, Uh, Cats
"Today in Japan, bottled wine created especially for cats goes on sale. This is not a joke. Apparently. Pet supplement company B&H Lifes is rolling out "wine exclusively for cats" that is called "Nyan Nyan Nouveau." In Japanese, "nyan nyan" (ニャンニャン) can refer to a cat's meow as well as people screwing. Here, it refers to cats. "Nouveau" appears to evoke Beaujolais Nouveau, which is quite popular in Japan. And no, Nyan Nyan Nouveau doesn't have any alcohol in it—much like Japanese "kid's beer" doesn't contain any actual booze. As noted on Sankei Biz, the drink does contain juice made from Cabernet grapes, Vitamin C as well as catnip for a beverage that supposedly tastes like red wine." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Confirmed: California Aquifers Contaminated With Billions Of Gallons of Fracking Wastewater | DeSmogBlog
"Update 02/11/15: The problems with California's underground injection control program are far worse than originally reported. It has now been revealed that California regulators with DOGGR permitted hundreds of wastewater injection wells and thousands more wells injecting fluids for “enhanced oil recovery” into aquifers protected under the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. Original post: After California state regulators shut down 11 fracking wastewater injection wells last July over concerns that the wastewater might have contaminated aquifers used for drinking water and farm irrigation, the EPA ordered a report within 60 days. It was revealed yesterday that the California State Water Resources Board has sent a letter to the EPA confirming that at least nine of those sites were in fact dumping wastewater contaminated with fracking fluids and other pollutants into aquifers protected by state law and the federal Safe Drinking Water Act.
