Going through the halloween candy and seeing what I'll pass out and what is mine all mine. I'm not gonna lie; it's not looking good for the trick or treaters this year.

It doesn't rain for almost a YEAR and it rains on Halloween. So so cruel!
Yup! TRICK - Stephen Mack
Rains on Halloween every year in my area. It's kind of the running joke. - Hookuh Tinypants
I'm just so bummed I couldn't take Luke Trick or Treating during the day like I'd planned. And not sure we'll go tonight either. =( - Yvonne Renee
I think Valley Fair partakes in trick-or-treating. You can go store to store and get candy. Well, the kids can do it. - Gabrielle

Drunk Florida Man Tries to Use Taco as ID After His Car Catches Fire at Taco Bell | Miami New Times -
"The incident occurred in the early morning of October 1 in Jensen Beach, according to the blog Off the Beat. Falkner, 30, had apparently decided to make a run for a fourth meal after downing some beers, and he somehow made it all the way to the fast-food joint in his Chevy pickup, placed his order, and received his taco before falling asleep. The Taco Bell manager had to call police because Falkner was out cold at the pick-up window and holding up customers behind him. Clearly this was not a victimless crime, and our hearts go out to the hungry folks who had to wait so long for their late-night munchies. A deputy awoke Falkner and then asked for his ID. Falkner said no before reaching into his bag and presenting the officer with a taco. Another deputy clarified they were asking for an ID, not a taco. Falkner chuckled and began eating the taco. Then deputies noticed Falkner had fallen asleep with his foot on the accelerator while his truck was in park. The engine had caught fire, and fire extinguishers were used to put it out." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Your honor, my client was not "driving" under the influence - he was merely sleeping in a parked truck while drunk. If he didn't move when asked you might charge him with trespassing but to assume anything worse would be predatory. - Brian Johns

ha! i was talking to him about that this afternoon. parker, not RMS. - kendrak
Heh. Well, I'm glad he tweeted it. Tell him I said, 'Hi.' Not RMS, parker. - Micah
it reminded me how great RMS is from a distance, in a "gee, i'm glad i don't actually know him" kind of way. - kendrak
It's kind of like I don't want to picture a world where an RMS couldn't exist. On the other hand, were I world-building I'd have a long list of other priorities I'd be working on first. - Micah

Thanks, Stephen. I've never heard of him. Sounds like an eccentric guy to live with. - Spidra Webster
Fighting to make games worse | Coyote Tracks -
"But what’s fascinating—and depressing—about this particular incarnation of the culture war is how thoroughly self-identified gamers are gutting the argument that games can be capital-A Art. Every new form of expression must fight to be taken seriously. You’ll still find people arguing science fiction and fantasy aren’t real literature. The ugly kernel of truth, though, is that that argument persists because there’s a lot of embarrassing stuff in sci-fi. And comics. And, yes, games. (I write lots of stories with anthropomorphic animal characters, whether alien/fantasy races or modified humans like Gail, so they’re sci-fi and for kids and that weird furry stuff. Dismissiveness trifecta!) Art is aspirational. It’s making a statement we can argue about. It’s tugging at us to examine unquestioned attitudes. It still entertains us, but it makes us think. But works always say something, even if what they say is “here are my field’s stereotypes in all their best-selling glory.” A genre... more... - Micah from Bookmarklet

Interesting -re: the catcalling video:
I'll be honest, not once during the first time I watched the video did ethnicity even register to me. Because I've heard all that stuff coming out of mouths of every race, color, and creed so I wasn't even focused on who was doing the talking. Second time I watched it though, I was like " are there no white dudes? Was this deliberate?" Yup. Sure was. :-/ - Hookuh Tinypants

Lay Off the Artisanal Ice, You Ignorant Hipsters | Mother Jones -
Lay Off the Artisanal Ice, You Ignorant Hipsters | Mother Jones
Oh good grief. "Yes, artisanal ice is now a thing. In hipster meccas from Portland to Williamsburg, bars are serving up their drinks on extra-dense, extra-clear cubes, produced through a laborious process of freezing and carving. Cocktail connoisseurs swear the difference in flavor is worth the extra effort: In addition to being more aesthetically pleasing, the cubes' density and relatively large size mean they melt more slowly and dilute your drink less. But there's evidence that the fancy ice might not be the coolest thing ever to happen to the environment." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Last night our youngest told us she had learned about words that sound like what they describe: onomatopoeia. I was rather surprised, since she is just 6 and I didn't learn that concept or word until I was nearly 12.
My wife, not having English as her first language, initially thought she'd made this up. :p - Big Joe Silence from Android
I always spelled it like this: Onomatopoeia - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
*writes this down* - Big Joe Silence
Too bad it's not easier to spell. It's a cool word though! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
When your wife sees the word spelled out she'll know for sure that you made it up. :-) - bentley
i can claim that it's some obscure Saxon curse word. - Big Joe Silence
The grand daddy of all that is discussed here: - Iain Baker
"Quadrupedante putrem sonitu quatit ungula campum or “The horses’ hooves with four-fold beat did shake the crumbling plain.” Now, say the Latin out loud (Latin is kind of like Spanish, you pronounce it how it’s spelled… so just sound it out… Oh, and there’s a hard G in “ungula”). Repeat it a couple of times until you can say it well and at an even pace. Do you hear them? Say it in a James Earl Jones voice. Hear them now? It’s the horses hooves on the plain!" - Iain Baker
That's perfect, Iain! - Anne Bouey
Iain wins! - Big Joe Silence

Does milk do a body good? Maybe not, a new study suggests - L.A. Times
"A new study finds that people who drank lots of milk were more likely to have bone fractures and to die at younger ages than people who drank less than one glass per day." - Victor Ganata
I've been on team yogurt/kefir/etc for years now. - Andrew C (✔)
All I know is milk tastes so much better (milky?) in Asia than it does here. - rönin from FFHound!
Well, we're only just learning about nutrition. The problem is that the dietary guidelines are totally written by Big Ag and they also provide a lot of the funding for studies, too. Moderation seems to be the key in everything. As far as I've been told, you don't need cow's milk specifically, what you need is calcium and vitamin D (and fat when you're still myelinating your central nervous system) and there are plenty of ways to get adequate amounts of those without having to drink lots of cow's milk. - Victor Ganata
So, the fact that I didn't drink milk as a kid while my brother drank close to a gallon a day didn't make me the nutrition slacker? Excellent! - Katy S
we give our kids a calcium supplement and make sure they eat fruit rich in potassium. - Big Joe Silence

Your Request Of "Gotta Hear Both Sides" Has Been Denied
"Dear Applicant, Thank you for your recent inquiry about hearing both sides. According to our records, this marks the fourth submission in as many days as to whether or not we have heard both sides. We regret to inform you that we have not. On March the 2nd, you interrupted a conversation by asking “In fairness, have you heard both sides?” On April the 13th, you spoke over a work acquaintance, reminding her that “We can’t actually form an opinion about this until we’ve heard both sides.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"While in an ideal world perhaps we would listen to all sides, the volume of requests we receive on a daily basis makes this impossible. We have decided to move ahead with our lives without hearing from your side. It is with very sincere regret that we must inform you we will not be listening to both sides, and have no plans to listen to both sides in the future. Just the one side will... more... - Jessie
"What will happen once we’ve decided not to hear both sides? We do not know. We are sailing into uncharted waters. Perhaps we will never return. There may be many sides — dodecahedrons, even — we will neglect to hear. This is a burden we are prepared to take on. We wish you and your side all of the best and now consider the matter closed, The Management" - Jessie

Pope announcing church believes in Big Bang Theory has me dying to know their position on Frasier for all these years.
Like the Big Bang Theory and Evolution, the Church has accepted for decades that Frasier was not as good as Cheers, the Niles-Daphne will-they-won't-they storyline was dragged out, and that it was at least better than Friends. Amen. - Mark Trapp
I'd have no argument with that homily. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
