Although I played sports my whole life I have never heard the "n-word" used more than our neighborhood courts when the 8 and 9 year old boys are playing. It's every other word whether a coached game or pickup, yes most players are black. Normally I'm just passing by not my problem.
But now we have a boy and if he wants I'll teach him basketball. He would play with those boys too. What am I supposed to do to handle that? What is he supposed to do? - Steve C Team Marina
Teach him to be respectful. - Janet from FFHound!
You're going to want to explain the context of the term. You don't want him saying it thinking it's a term of endearment when it will likely be looked at as disrespect. - Eric - It's My Thing
I know literally nothing about parenting, so take everything I say with a grain of salt. I do spend a lot of time reading and thinking about racism, and probably the most helpful thing you can do for a young person is educate them about the historical context of racism. That's how I got into this, being assigned Black Like Me and the autobiography of Frederick Douglass in school. Racism... more... - Lo
J Smooth makes a case for the "standard" of use here: https://www.youtube.com/watch... I get what he's saying; that it's the relationship people have with each other and with certain words that affect usage and received meaning. Like me calling my wife "honey" verses a perfect stranger. But I don't completely buy it. Even among "us" context is important. As it was with the... more... - MoTO: Team Marina
Somewhere down the line, using "nigger" even affectionately didn't sound right coming out of my mouth anymore. I can't explain why but it's something akin to calling my wife "bitch". I couldn't do it, even in jest. And she wouldn't allow it. I think it's instructional that in my generation, you couldn't get away with using nigger around your elders until you had some years behind you.... more... - MoTO: Team Marina
Bottom line, I'd suggest advising your son to avoid that minefield. - MoTO: Team Marina
Thanks peeps, he would definitely never say it if I had anything to do with it but will still be surrounded by it so I'll have to explain it to him like Lo said. And since I have coached many sports and teams before I'd have to figure out how I'd deal with it from that angle too. - Steve C Team Marina
I don't have a problem telling kids or even grown people to please not use the n word so much. Usually people aren't even aware they're saying it so often. And in Oakland, the SE Asians & latino kids use it more than a lot of the black kids! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

Jennifer Garner's Passionate Speech on Sexism in Hollywood: Ben Affleck Is Only Asked About His Co-Star's ''Tits'' - http://www.eonline.com/news...
Jennifer Garner's Passionate Speech on Sexism in Hollywood: Ben Affleck Is Only Asked About His Co-Star's ''Tits''
""The fact that there even needs to be a Women in Hollywood event is a little bit sad," gorgeous Garner said during the annual event at the Four Seasons hotel in Beverly Hills. "I mean, the men in Hollywood event is every day—it's called Hollywood. Fifty-one percent of the population should not have to have to schedule a special event to celebrate the fact that in an art that tells the story of what it means to be human and alive, we get to play a part."" - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
You'd think that the editor would have tripped over that "gorgeous Garner" the same way I did. I mean, way to undercut the quote. - Steele Lawman
I guess their idea is that it's only sour grapes if women who aren't gorgeous say such things... - Spidra Webster
Wow, I didn't even notice that, but it is E!. - Eric - It's My Thing

Recurring dreams: 1. I'm in high school and I can't remember my locker combination, and 2. I keep thinking that I have missed a ton of assignments and am failing the class.
I know that dream. - Big Joe Silence from Android
Do you have your shoes on? For some reason I'm always barefoot as I try to navigate those hallways - WarLord
I have my shoes. - Mary Carmen
Actually, that dream was my senior year. - Big Joe Silence from Android
I have those as well! Also: 3) I'm graduating from high school for the 3rd, 4th, 5th time because I kept going back to try to get better grades. I suddenly realise I'm a married mother of two hanging out with 17yo's and wearing a uniform but that's not weird. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Then there's the dream where I'm trying to text or call someone, and for some reason, I just CANNOT type in the right combination of characters/numbers. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Anxiety about the new boot camp experience and fear of failure? - Janet from FFHound!
No clue. But I have anxiety so it makes sense. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I have that dream all the time. That, and the one where I'm running away from people with guns through a factory while I'm protecting a baby. - Vampire Hunter DYSP
In my recurring dream, I'm not wearing trousers and I'm going around trying to find some trousers to put on before the people around me realize I'm not wearing any. - bentley
First time on FriendFeed in sooooo long for this post! You never disappoint, Mary Carmen!! Hope the family is well!! :-) - Harold Cabezas from Android
HI HAROLD! Wr are alive and well over here, you? - Mary Carmen
Very well, Carmen!! Thanks for asking. How is motherhood treating you...? Being a parent is the best thing in the world; ten years as a parent and it just keeps getting better with every passing year... :-) - Harold Cabezas from Android
I love it. It is a lot of fun. She is growing too fast! - Mary Carmen
Awesome...! Very happy for you and the Mr. I'll catch up on your pics tomorrow/this weekend. :-) - Harold Cabezas from Android

Now I am thinking about getting a tablet...
NOT an iPad. - Julian
I've got an LG we picked up cheap when Uli got his new phone. Really like it. Admittedly, I mostly use it for games, reading, and social stuff; no clue how it would do for anything more complex. - Kirsten
we have a Kindle Fire HD. it was free. no real complaints. - Big Joe Silence
We continue to like our Kindle Fire HD 8.9, but now you'd want the HDX 8.9, which is apparently powerful enough to be a decent general-purpose tablet (and has phenomenal resolution). But it's still Amazon-tuned, running a customized Android, which may be an issue. - Walt Crawford
I wonder if I can still get a Nexus 7, now that the Nexus 9 has been announced. - Julian
I'm looking to replace my Nexus 7, Julian. I really liked it. - MoTO: Team Marina
My dad picked up a new Nexus 7 last week, to replace his 1st-gen Nexus 7. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I love my Dell Venue 7. - Corinne L
This might actually happen today, thanks to Micro Center. I will update on this soon. - Julian
You can still get a Nexus 7 from Amazon http://www.amazon.com/s.... - Me
Also I suggest what Walt suggested as well, especially if you live in the Amazon world and have kids (There is a feature for kid time and such that is not standard on others.) I use my Fire HD for when watching tv and such along with some games. - Me
Just got an amazing steal on a Nexus 7 at my local Micro Center. I almost bought two. The second would have been the 2012 model, but they didn't have any (and I would have happily taken a refurb). - Julian from YouFeed
My wife is also on her 2nd Nexus 7. - Bruce Lewis
Just a suggestion, but I love this case for my nexus 7 http://www.amazon.com/JETech%... - Me
I'm liking my Surface 2 very much the current Surface is a 3 - WarLord

Fitbit Launches Challenges to Push You and Friends to Go Further
"The charm of Fitbit has always been more than just counting steps and seeing how far you've meandered in your day. Even more than the virtual badges you can collect for hitting new personal recorsd, one of the most engaging pieces of this smart wearable has been informally competing with your friends for a place atop the leaderboard, learning who is the most active, and seeing just how much further you need to go to land a spot at the top." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
I wasn't sandbagging! I was just in 8 hours solid of meetings during the day, then was focused on the kids until 10:30 (my daughter was having a tough time getting to sleep). I didn't start running until 10:30 -- if I had started running/walking at 9, I'd have beat you. :) - Stephen Mack
I think Louis is the one sandbagging today. - Stephen Mack
I'll never tell. And I didn't call you out by name, Stephen. :) - Louis Gray

SaturdayFF#: I built my first ever software package for deployment yesterday. It took me a day and a half to work out the scripting but I got it going. I still have some tweaks to do but its working and I'm proud of it. I feel all Desktop Engineeringy.
I only asked for help once. I think I'm getting the hang of this new job. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Android
Nice! What kind of package manager did you use? - imabonehead
Well I'm using package pretty generically. They do most of their installs with batch files at this new place. So my install consists of a batch file with some VBScript thrown in. I'll have to do some more testing and then we'll set it up in SCCM as a package for deployment. If everything goes well we'll bake it into the corporate image at the next quarterly refresh. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Android
It feels nice to have come up with a solution to a problem they have been having for a while. I think my boss and supervisor were impressed. - DB, Lil LB's Dad from Android

So Wednesday I am gonna go and give this fitness bootcamp a try. Gonna do the 28 days and if I like it and see some results I'm gonna stick with it. I am kinda excited about it. http://www.fitbodybootcamp.com/manteca...
Cool! I hope you have an awesome time :D - Jennifer Dittrich
That's awesome - Stephen Mack
Sweet. Good luck and kick ass! - Tamara J. B.
Have fun. - bentley
Neat! Kick ass! - Marie
Cool! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Enjoy! But be careful. I have a number of friends who have done Fit Body Boot Camp and quality of instruction varies greatly by location. Be your own advocate every step of the way. The trainers may not always do so on your behalf (they are driven by turning out fast results to bring in more clients, not by ensuring your health and wellness). H.I.I.T. is hard but awesome! You're gonna love it! :D - Hookuh Tinypants
It was pretty fucking awesome. I'm in. I was very relieved to see that it was not Cross Fit. - Mary Carmen
Yay! :D (And I'm glad I'm not the only person who gets all >.> at Cross Fit...) - Hookuh Tinypants
Yay! Can't wait to see how you feel at the end! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
No way, Amanda. Cross fit looks like a great way to permanently injure yourself. - Mary Carmen from iPhone

My wife can barely speak at all, due to the tumor. (to communicate we ask questions and she nods) I have noticed in the early mornings she says a few words. I made a short video and emailed it to her daughter, saying thank you and love you. only 5 words, but the video made her day.
You are a good guy, Mike. These days are precious and it takes a huge heart to share them. You are amazing. - Shannon - GlassMistress
no matter how bad things are - we try to find some joy in each day, we call them small victories. its going to get tough in the coming weeks. we have all the hospice meds ready to make this as comfortable as possible. thanks shannon. - Mike Nencetti
That's really beautiful, Mike. - Jenny H. from Android
Be well - WarLord
that's a wonderful thing to do -it's something her daughter can hold on to and save. Having just watched my dad in hospice care and my mother caring for him, please remember to take care of yourself too. And yes, the small victories, whatever they are, are so important. - ellbeecee
What a beautiful gift, Mike, both for Beverly that she was able to tell her daughter that she loves her, and for her daughter, who will treasure that. I continue to hold you both close in my thoughts. - vicster: full-bodied
That's a wondferful thing to have done, Mike. I wish you both many more victories and joys in the coming weeks. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
Do what you can to take care of yourself. With my mom we would watch videos of family a little bit but lots of distracting videos like Too Cute kittens and dogs. Different situation for you but I hope you keep finding your Too Cute moments together. - Steve C Team Marina
All the best Mike. - Eric - It's My Thing

All of you criminals have inspired me at one time or another. But Mandy gets the gold star in that territory. She keeps it moving, she keeps trying. I admire the hell out of her for it. Hoping and Praying this next turn around the sun gets you more of what you need and some of what you want, sugar.
Also, she probably knows more about Parliament Funkadelic than I do. What is not to love there? - MoTO: Team Marina

Canada's first Thanksgiving: Frobisher set stage for our celebrations in different spirit than U.S. - http://www.canada.com/holiday...
"The first Thanksgiving celebration by Euro-peoples in North America was not in New England but in Newfoundland by Martin Frobisher, 42 years before the Pilgrims. Frobisher's Thanksgiving was not for harvest but homecoming. He had safely returned from a search for the Northwest Passage, avoiding the later fate of Henry Hudson and Sir John Franklin. Given the fierceness of Arctic winter and the tragedy of these other expeditions, we can understand why he was grateful to come out alive. But why a special thanksgiving? Frobisher sailed under Elizabeth I, whose reign was marked by gratitude from beginning to end. For her first 20 years she held public thanksgiving simply for having lived to ascend the throne -- having escaped the fate of her mother, Anne Boleyn, at the hand of her sister, "Bloody Mary," in the previous reign. Ten years after Frobisher's return, England gave thanks for delivery from the Spanish Armada. And in her last speech to Parliament the great Queen began "We perceive... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

Dude, Stephen has TWICE my steps a day! Don't think my Little Foot that Could can do THAT much walking. =) - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!

We're happy to see your photos here. :) - Anne Bouey
Oh nice how do like the EM-1? I'm still using the original EM-5. - Rodfather from Android
Are you using a 3rd party lens with an adapter for those telephoto shots? Oh never mind. It's the 75-300mm lens. Amazing shots. - Rodfather
Beautiful. - Jenny H. from Android
Thanks! Rodfather: the main thing I like is that there's a built-in grip, and that helps a *lot* with the 75-300mm lens. I had gotten an add-on grip with the E-M1 but it wasn't nearly as good. The E-M1 has phase detection autofocus, which helps with flying birds. If I didn't spend 90% of my time on the 75-300mm lens, I would've kept the E-M5. The E-M1's ergonomics are a little better, and it has more buttons and features. Image quality doesn't seem any better. - Amit Patel
Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Louis Gray

FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release --  draggable version
Having trouble with the FF Bookmarklet in Chrome or other browsers? This is an updated version thanks to Micah and sizofroid. To make it easier to install, I'm now hosting it at my site, so you don't have to jump through hoops, you can just drag the updated version to your bookmark bar. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Yay! [update: uh, I don't see the actual bookmarklet on that page] - lris
Hmm, what browser are you using, Iris? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Chrome, Mac. Here's what I see http://screencast.com/t... - lris
Well that's weird. Chrome on Windows is working for me. When you go to the FF tools page, is the button there visible for you? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes it is - lris
Iris, have you disabled JavaScript by chance? I had a coworker test with Chrome on his Mac and it was working for him. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. And I did have adblocker running but I disabled it for that site. - lris
I love you. - Melly - #TeamMarina
I love you too, Melly! - Stephen Mack
Iris, hold on, gonna try something to fix it. - Stephen Mack
I'm running Chrome on Windows if that helps, FYI. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Iris, I changed how the image for the button was hosted. Did that fix it for you? - Stephen Mack
Yay! I see it! - lris
Yay! Hmm, you must have some pretty high levels of security set. All I changed was copying the image for the button from FF's server to mine. - Stephen Mack
I am not aware of extra high levels of security. Maybe I'm accidentally extremely careful. :) - lris
I'm sure it's no accident. :) - Stephen Mack
Hopefully no one else is having any trouble? - Stephen Mack
I added the older versions at the bottom, just in case there are any compatibility issues. - Stephen Mack
When I saw "draggable" I first thought it meant the popup can be dragged around within the page, to make it easier to select images that it would ordinarily be covering up...like this old one: http://pastebin.ca/1323845 I am still using that one, but installed as a dedicated CustomButton. If you have the Firefox add-on installed, it's easy to install the button from here: http://appsapps.info/ff... What I would like to have is a combo of all the goodies into one awesome button. - April Russo
April, that's a cool idea. I couldn't get the one you linked to work for me, though. I wonder if we can beg Micah to add that functionality into his version. - Stephen Mack
I just did. ;) - April Russo
Ah! I don't know about CustomButton, though. What is taht? - Stephen Mack
Which one could you not get to work? The 1st or 2nd link? The 1st is instructions for modifying the official bookmarklet to use the drag & drop popup. The 2nd link requires the CustomButtons add-on installed in Firefox. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... You'd just click the link on my page to install the button, then right click a Firefox toolbar, go to... more... - April Russo
2nd link. But I see what you mean, it requires the add-on. Does it work on Chrome or IE, or just Firefox? - Stephen Mack
Compatibility: Mozilla Firefox 1.5+ SeaMonkey 2.0+ Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0+ Mozilla Sunbird 0.8-0.9 / Calendar 1.0pre KompoZer 0.8b1-0.8b3 Flock 0.7-1.5+ and Pale Moon (which is what I am using) - April Russo
