Facebook users self-censor on controversial topics -
There are a lot of things I'm willing to say in person that I'm not willing to say online. - Brian Johns
Online remarks can be forever, globally. - Sean McBride
From what I've seen on my feed, some users don't self-censor or if they do, we are in hella trouble. - Greg GuitarBuster
It's probably one of the few places I do self censor because I don't know enough about people I respect who are friends, family, business partners etc. and lots of people read without ever engaging in conversation so you don't know what their perception is of views on topics that often need more complete explanations to fully grasp then just the snippets of conversation we leave on a thread. - Eric Logan
I always advise everyone around me -- don't post sensitive personal data on the Internet -- you will regret it. You don't know who is reading those posts, how they will react to them and how they will use them. - Sean McBride

ok. let's try to balance this initial dread and terror reaction with some helpful reminders, shall we?
I remain employed with full benefits through October 1st. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have access to enough money to cover 2 month's salary. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I'm a long-time member of a professional association that has a job bank and gives me access to a wide network. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I needed to update my resume anyhow. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Good positioning. Now all energy to that new job! - Eric
The volunteer work and professional networking I started this year has exposed me to opportunities here in Athens I didn't know existed. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
every so often it's helpful to find out who your real friends are, and this will be one of those times. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have an amazing support network of friends that have helped me through bad times in the past, so I have the moral support I'll need to make some tough decisions (provided I ask for it; that's on me). - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I have a Master's degree and a broad range of fairly marketable skills. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I paid off 2 credit cards so that chunk of cheddar can go elsewhere. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
job hunting expenses are tax deductible (ok, that one's a little lame, but whatever). - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
and you're cute as hell - MoTO: Team Marina
ha, B. thanks for the chuckle. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
since I finally got my taxes filed, some money will come back from the Fed even after paying what I owe the state and the tax preparer. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I was on a roll for awhile keeping a reasonable expense budget, then I blew it with beering and dining, and now I can get back on it for better overall regardless. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I've wanted/needed to get my 401k and IRA and other random accounts I've accumulated over the years organized for awhile and kept putting it off (b/c ugh) but now would be a good time to get my money house in order in general. I asked the tax guy about it and got a recommendation, so I have someone to call to help me get started sooner rather than later. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
my therapist will help me through this and will likely run a tab for me if I'm unable to pay for awhile as she's done in the past. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
I'll be 40 in March. I am a grown-ass woman. I can handle my business. Not wanting to deal and not being able to deal are two very different things. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra
Looks as if there are a few training-type openings at Maritz - I figured there would be, if you want to live in St. Louis. Are you a cat person? - Mary B: #TeamMonique
Thanks Mary. I'll take a look. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
You are also a bad mamajama. Don't forget that part. - Corinne L

You know what triggers my latent OCD sometimes? The fact that September, October, November and December are not the 7th, 8th, 9th and 10th months.
Image: Matinée de Septembre (or September Morn), a painting by the French artist Paul Émile Chabas (1869–1937). "Painted over three summers ending in 1912, it became famous when it provoked a scandal in the USA." Via - Stephen Mack from iPhone
"Ultimately, the painting would be labelled as kitsch by critics who thought it lacking in interesting artistic features: contrast, coordinated lines, and a worthy subject." Ouch! - Brian Johns
Sparky: Yeah, critics are mean! - Stephen Mack
And I have always liked this painting, kitschy or not. - Stephen Mack
But! Back to month names. - Stephen Mack
How do we fix this? Well, the easiest fix would be to remove the two months added latest, January and February. And then stick them at the end of the year. So we'd essentially shift every month down two spots. - Stephen Mack
But I actually think "May" is a terrible name for a month. If you buy that "June" is named after the Latin word "iuniores" (young men; juniors) and that May is named after the Latin word "maiores" (grown men; majors) then we have two months dedicated to young and old men. (Via .) No one needs that. So we should remove those two, shift the rest up two, and then come up with two new month names for the 11th and 12th months. - Stephen Mack
I am therefore hereby calling for submissions for new month names. - Stephen Mack
(Note that "June" is typically described as being named after the goddess Juno. e.g. - Stephen Mack
"Stupid Smarch weather." - Victor Ganata
We could always just go back to the old Roman calendar of 10 months plus 60 days of Winter (at least in the Northern Hemisphere). :D #WinterIsComing #decimalization #metricization - Victor Ganata
Thinking about this more, I think it would probably just be easier to rename September, October, November, and December to things that aren't numerical. Problem solved! - Victor Ganata
If 9=Septem, 10=Octo, 11=Novem, 12=Decem bothers you, can you imagine how people must've been really irritated by the fact that New Year's Day was March 25th? - Victor Ganata
Can you imagine if we still had a month called Sextilis? #iam12 - Victor Ganata
^ I think we need that month again. - Stephen Mack
Sextilis, nine months later, Natalis ;) - Pete : Team Marina
Or remove the vanity months of July and August, whose names were changed after January & February were added. - Cristo
nowadays we no longer need the calendar to know when to sow, I wonder how it could be a 400-days-long year, with ten months, each with four ten-days weeks, with three day of festivity per week - mario leone
Mario, why a 400 day year? Don't we still need it to be 365.3? Or do you want the seasons to shift? - Stephen Mack
I think we don't, seasons may shift, they would shift without the leap years - mario leone
But we have leap years just so the seasons don't shift! I'm all for decimalization, but I think a basic requirement of an annual calendar is that it should actually align to the period of time it takes the Earth to revolve around the sun. - Stephen Mack
Proposal: 10 "months", each with 6 weeks of 6 days, (so "month" = 36 days), with 5.3 days of 'bonus' time between the 'end' of a year and the 'start' of the next. Days are still 24 hours of course. 'Bonus' time may or may not be used as in the 'Purge' movies. :) - Ken Gidley
Metric time: 1 year = 10 months, 1 month = 10 weeks, 1 week = 10 days, 1 day = 10 hours, 1 hour = 100 minutes, 1 minute = 100 seconds, with seconds redefined appropriately :D Screw solstices, the moon, and sunrises and sunsets! - Victor Ganata
So THAT'S how The Purge got started! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
And that's the news on Quintidi, Fructidor the 5th, 221. - David Lounsbury from iPhone
Somewhat similar to Victor's proposal, but slightly different. The fixed time units are days and years, which correspond to the rotation of the Earth and its orbit around the Sun. I'll explain more in another post: - Cristo
I swear that I heard this conversation just the other day in the office. - NOT THE CRICKET

Email could never be invented today. All new successful comm platforms are about proprietary products that own the customer relationship.
To be fair email was an answer to a problem posed by the poor disconnected networks of the day. We have different systems today because the technology allows it. The rest is just greed. - Todd Hoff
But as long as you own the email addresses used by your customers, along with their entire address book, you own the relationships. - April Russo

Ultimate Warrior: One-Third Of WrestleMania VI Competitors Now Dead | ThePostGame -
Ultimate Warrior: One-Third Of WrestleMania VI Competitors Now Dead | ThePostGame
Ultimate Warrior: One-Third Of WrestleMania VI Competitors Now Dead | ThePostGame
"The death of the Ultimate Warrior was just the latest grim reminder that professional wrestlers continue to drop dead from something other than old age at an alarming rate. The pinnacle of the Warrior's career was WrestleMania VI on April 1, 1990, at SkyDome in Toronto. Warrior defeated Hulk Hogan in the main event to win the championship. Warrior is the 12th wrestler who competed at WrestleMania VI to have died -- one-third of the card's working roster. The oldest was just 63. As a point of reference, of the 44 starting players from that year's Super Bowl between the 49ers and Broncos, only one has died: Denver defensive end Ron Holmes, who was 48 when he passed away in 2011 from diabetes and coronary issues. Reasons for wrestlers' dying early -- grueling travel schedules, painkiller abuse, steroid use -- have been well-documented. The passing of the Warrior at age 54 from what is suspected to be a heart attack just days after his induction to WWE's Hall of Fame only underscores the issue." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
