Like a Ferrari that got porked by a luck dragon.
I am thankful the stereo receiver I had my eye on for a year was on Amazon deals today. I couldn't be more American.
The Yamaha? I noticed that, but I'm hesitating. - Greg GuitarBuster
Yes Greg that's the one it's not the world beater but has the airplay I needed and juice. Based on reviews online it's good but has limitations in wireless. The receiver it is replacing is from 1989 it works just fine just problems with my unique airport express connection to it and juice. Finally dropped below price point. - Steve C Team Marina from Android
And so it begins Black Friday sale started online for many stores including toys r us and target.
*doffs Mickey Mouse ears* - Spidra Webster
The deal on the kid toy looked great till i had to open it. Three tennis ball sized stuffed toys that rattle seems simple enough till you lock those baby's down to two sheets of thick cardboard with 10 thick zipties and 8 plastic T connectors. It took two pairs of scissors and a knife to extract the bastards.
HBO to make film of Scientology book, hires 160 lawyers - -
HBO to make film of Scientology book, hires 160 lawyers -
"HBO is backing a documentary based on "Going Clear," a book about Scientology and Hollywood -- and isn't taking any chances with the legal side of things. "We have probably 160 lawyers" looking at the film, HBO Documentary Films President Sheila Nevins told The Hollywood Reporter. (HBO, like CNN, is a unit of Time Warner.) "Going Clear," by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Lawrence Wright ("The Looming Tower"), digs into the life of Scientology founder L. Ron Hubbard and the influence his church has had on its believers, many of whom have close ties to Hollywood." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Diana is now the proud owner of a new dental practice that is beautiful and modern and fancy and pretty much only operated by her. But as the smartest person I know she can handle it. I’m hoping to help send people her direction. I know it’s far from many of us being in San Clemente but if you know someone in the area or are willing to make the drive for a good dental visit I’d appreciate it. - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

A ‘Stupidity’ Virus Has Been Discovered
"A virus known to attack green algae in lakes and rivers can also infect human brains -- and it’s making dummies out of us. The virus, called ATCV-1, can impair cognitive activity, learning and memory, essentially making a person who has the virus less intelligent, researchers in the U.S. have found. Scientists said this is the first time the virus has been observed in people." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
“This is a striking example showing that the ‘innocuous’ microorganisms we carry can affect behavior and cognition,” Robert Yolken, a virologist at Johns Hopkins Medical School in Maryland, who led the original study, told the Independent. All people have physiological differences “encoded in the set of genes each inherits from parents, yet some of these differences are fueled by the various microorganisms we harbor and the way they interact with our genes,” Yolken said. - Steve C Team Marina

Laundry detergent pods are 'real risk' to poison kids - -
"Last year a Florida mother of a 7-month-old came back to her room to find that her baby had accidentally eaten one of those bright colored laundry detergent pods. He had been sleeping in a laundry basket with the pod when it happened. They rushed him to the hospital, but it was too late. He died, of poisoning from the detergent, according to the Kissimmee, Florida, police department. He is not the first child to mistake the potent packet for something else. Poison control centers around the country have gotten thousands of calls. In the period of about a year, 17,230 children under the age of 6 have been accidentally poisoned by the packets, according to a new study in the journal Pediatrics. That's about one child every hour between March 2012 and April 2013. Of those cases, 4.4% of the children were hospitalized, and 7.5% experienced a "moderate or major medical outcome."" - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Goldieblox action figure ad 'breaks the mold' |
"Goldieblox introduces a new action figure for girls in an ad that makes a bold statement about "beauty over brains." The new ad titled "GoldieBlox vs. the Big Sister machine" is being compared to Apple's famous "1984" commercial where a woman is seen "breaking the mold." When you watch the spot, you can hear Metric's "Help I'm Alive" set the tone for what appears to be robotic like girls dressed in pink, walking in a factory-like assembly line." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

Forest service warns against #bearselfies -
"Dear park visitors, Please don't take selfies with bears. It's stupid. Love, the U.S Forest Service That pretty much sums up a warning issued recently by wildlife officials at Taylor Creek Visitor Center in South Lake Tahoe, California. "Bears are unpredictable, wild animals and may attack if threatened," Forest Supervisor Nancy Gibson said in a statement. "We can't have visitors creating dangerous situations for themselves and others. People are risking serious injury or death if they get too close to a bear." And if you don't care about your own health, at least consider the bears. If one attacked, officials would have to capture and kill it." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
I hate that they even have to point out why this is a stupid, bad, no-good idea. (See also: selfies with any other large wildlife.) - Jennifer Dittrich
You couldn't pay me to take a photo with a bear. Nevermind the wildlife ethics, bears are scary! - Jenny H. from Android
Might be a good way to thin the herd. Of humans, not bears. - Spidra Webster

Alabama dog gets owner nabbed for alleged drug offenses -

"A pooch in Alabama got its owner busted for alleged drug offenses -- all with a gleeful wag of its tail. Edward Melvin Henderson was arrested in Prattville, Alabama, and faces a variety of charges. The dog, Bo, was caught up in the incident when police executed a drug search warrant this week at the Prattville home of suspect Edward Melvin Henderson. Henderson took off and dashed toward a wooded area at the back of his home, the Prattville Police Department said in a statement. Bo, a mix of a pit bull and husky, ran after Henderson after investigators told the dog to "go get him." Authorities briefly lost sight of them and were close to giving up. But an excited Bo had found his owner hiding in tall grass, and was wagging his tail. Authorities saw the tail and arrested Henderson." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

$6.99 for every song ever. Seriously well over 100 AC DC songs - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
I've never owned AC/DC. Should I? ;-) - Spidra Webster
It's actually 200 plus songs i think for that price worth a flyer. - Steve C Team Marina
Wow. That is way cheap. Will I get arrested for this? What kind of shenanigans are you getting us into? - Hookuh Tinypants from iPhone
Perhaps... Dirt Cheap? :D - Jennifer Dittrich
You're all on the Highway to Hell anyway might as well enjoy the soundtrack. - Steve C Team Marina
Thanks for the tip. Never been a huge fan of AC/DC, but I enjoy a handful of their songs. This is totally worth the price, even if I only ever listen to a few of the tracks. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Huh. Must have been a pricing issue. It's showing $119.99 for me. (Or some deal is over since it's now past midnight.) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Someone posted a review stating that although it showed $6.99, they were charged $119 for it. - Hookuh Tinypants
Must have expired quick only 6.99 on my account and card. Sorry - Steve C Team Marina
^ same. I see only the $6 charge (I had a $1 credit for .. something or other.) - Jennifer Dittrich

Of course! :) - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Wow, someone really screwed up when they entered it as $6.99. I wonder if they'll try to take back the purchase from those who got it for $6.99? - Stephen Mack
It did charge me $118.99 for it. I'mma have to contact Amazon support about that. ETA - and, they're issuing me a refund for the full purchase price ($118.99 + my $1.00 mp3 credit). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

"Google the buzz word “Ebola” today, and roughly 27,300,000 results come up. If you did so this past Tuesday, you might have noticed that the top search result for the virus, oddly, was a sponsored ad from Lysol. It seems the disinfectant company is attempting to capitalize on the public health hysteria with some viral marketing. Motherboard reports that the cleaning product company indeed bought the number one Google search slot for the disease, which lured readers to their site." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

"He isn't taking the traditional route with this film -- selling it to a TV network or production studio. He didn't want the outside pressure. Instead, he and co-producer Mark Hefti are raising the money on Kickstarter. They plan to donate 100% of the profits from the film to the Michele Baldwin Memorial Fund, which is managed by the American Sexual Health Association. Cervical cancer is a highly preventable cancer, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. It's caused by the human papillomavirus, or HPV, which has a vaccine. Yet every year more than 270,000 women die worldwide from the disease. Baldwin passed away in February 2012. After her death, Lumiere couldn't bring himself to work on the film. "Any time I tried to start it, I felt incredibly inadequate. Whatever I did, it wasn't good enough for her," he says. His wife finally convinced him to see a therapist, who helped him realize his grieving was normal. As Lumiere spoke early Thursday afternoon, the number of donations on his Kickstarter page continued to climb. In less than 12 hours, his project had raised more than $12,000." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
