You don't think that anyone would interpret this as some sort of biblical prophecy, do you? Nah. - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
geckos do it all the time. - Big Joe Silence
Parthenogenesis, FTW! - Jenny H. from Android
The Anti-Christ has been born? Isn't this somewhere in Revelations? ;) - Janet from FFHound!
Seattle peeps, what's up with the school shooting? Is it a mass shooting?

Reports of shooter dead. - Eric - It's My Thing
i hope the shooter didn't take anyone with them. - Big Joe Silence
Not sure yet, but there are reports of injuries. - Eric - It's My Thing
Classic evacuation of the school taking place. Being from Colorado, too familiar with this. - Eric - It's My Thing
Lockdown, so I'm not sure if the evacuation is via police and there are still people in classrooms with doors locked, lights off, crouched in corners. - Eric - It's My Thing
i don't remember this shit EVER happening in the 70s. WTAF. - Big Joe Silence
Well, welcome to modern times. - Eric - It's My Thing

Good grief! - vicster: full-bodied
I'm not sure what to think. Should we be glad we had a real time way to communicate? Should we be upset that students have to report this and look out for themselves?

I'm going to need some reviews here. - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
No one? - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
It's just a black square for me, most likely because I block a lot of stuff. That site has 23 trackers, so I wouldn't even know where to begin. - Anika
sorry, i just got in. i haven't had dinner yet, is this gonna make me lose my appetite? - Big Joe Silence
No longer available. - rönin from FFHound!

not sure this is the actual worst. pretty bad, tho. - Big Joe Silence
What IS that? - Melly - #TeamMarina
I have no idea. My best guess, it's a vanity video in the vein of Rebecca Black's Friday. - Eric - It's My Thing
I made it 39 seconds. Do I win a prize? :) FWIW, I'm sure there are people somewhere who are proud of it and more power to them. I'm...less impressed. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Yeah, more power and all, but for real, don't fool yourself that you have more talent than money. - Eric - It's My Thing
This is the one stuck in my head. https://www.youtube.com/watch... - NOT THE CRICKET

"Two USSS K-9s were taken to a veterinarian because they were hurt during an arrest Wednesday night, the Secret Service reported. The Secret Service reported another fence jumper at the White House. Dominic Adesanya, 23, of Bel Air, Md. climbed the North fence line of the White House around 7:16 p.m., according to the Secret Service." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet

No Album Has Gone Platinum In 2014 - http://www.xxlmag.com/news...
No Album Has Gone Platinum In 2014
"Was A$AP Yams onto something? No seriously? After he went on his infamous rant concerning the state of music in 2014 and labeling this year as the worst in rap history, many people dubbed him insane. Yams touched on a sensitive topic, which in reality, has a plethora of artists in the game shaking in their boots. According to Billboard, there hasn’t been a single artist to go platinum thus far this year. Let that just marinate. That’s right. No albums have went platinum this year. While Rick Ross’ Mastermind and Young Jeezy’s Seen It All tallied in strong week one numbers, they haven’t even touched gold this year. In addition, albums like Wiz Khalifa’s Blacc Hollywood, Iggy Azalea’s The New Classic are also having difficulty tittering over 400,000." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
Maybe if they were making actual music and not just that noise I keep hearing the kids these days play, then they'd sell more albums. #howsthatforold? - Brian Johns
Pretty old, but kinda true. - Eric - It's My Thing

Jamie Oliver and Taylor Swift 'Bake It Off'

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
Note, why you obtain an ankle injury in Mesquite playing golf because you refuse to pony up for better fitting shoes, then you constantly walk around, stand for a concert, give a walking tour of the strip to your friends, not really notice because of all the fun and drinking, and then wake up Monday morning wondering how your going to fit into...
your tennis shoes for the long drive home; that's what you get for waking up in Vegas. I'll be fine. Whoo, Vegas! - Eric - It's My Thing
Good tune.

Recovery fades, stocks lose about 2% as Dow dips 350 again - http://www.cnbc.com/id...
"U.S. stocks resumed a decline after shaving early losses on Wednesday as Europe markets closed in the red and weak domestic economic data weighed heavily on markets. "We're probably going to follow the Europe" markets," Peter Cardillo, chief market economist at Rockwell Global Capital, said. Although he expected U.S. stocks to close down, he saw some signs of stability. "I think investors should take advantage of this selloff," he said." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
Liquidity nightmare blamed for crazy market moves - http://www.cnbc.com/id...
"According to Eric Hunsader of Nanex, there were 179 "mini flash crashes" during the first 15 minutes of trading, which is the most since the Knight Capital Group fiasco in August 2012. Additionally, Hunsader reports that there were 68 trades in the S&P e-mini that moved that key futures contract 3 or more ticks. And Treasury futures, too, moved sharply as a result of low liquidity." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
Today an ad ran talking about the government spying on its citizens, how people calling out the issue are looked upon as paranoid, that we have a right to privacy, that our lives should not be stored on a government server. I thought, is the EFF running ads now? Nope, it was an NRA ad. What are they going to do, shoot their data out of the cloud?

"Believe it or not but when it comes to hip-hop, celebrities from all different walks of entertainment can’t wait to get a taste. From Aziz Ansari in Jay Z and Kanye West’s “Otis” video to James Brown in MC Hammer’s “2 Legit 2 Quit,” there have been more instances that not when celebs have made cameos in hip-hop videos.

Amy Poehler Reveals She Used Cocaine & Ecstasy In Her Twenties
"“I tried cocaine, which I instantly loved but eventually hated,” the Saturday Night Live alum, 44, confesses in a chapter titled “Obligatory Drug Stories.” “Cocaine is terrific if you want to hang out with people you don’t know very well and play Ping-Pong all night. It’s bad for almost everything else…The day after cocaine is rough.”" - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
"Wiping, also known as junking is a colloquial term for action taken by radio and television production and broadcasting companies, in which old audiotapes, videotapes, and telerecordings (kinescopes), are erased, reused, or destroyed. Although the practice was once very common, especially in the 1960s and 1970s, wiping is now practiced much less frequently. Older video and audio formats took up much more storage space than modern digital video or audio files, making their retention more costly, thus increasing the incentive of discarding existing broadcast material to recover storage space for newer programmes." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet

CBI is investigating an officer-involved shooting in Rocky Ford - http://www.krdo.com/news...
""He was standing next to his mom, his back turned toward the officer and then he shot him twice in the back and then pepper sprayed him. Then they hand cuffed his fiancé, for reasons I don't know why. And the mom went to call the cops and the cop took her phone and threw it against the wall," said Lindenmuth." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet

Our first Trader Joe's is now open. What are your go to Trader Joe's items?
pain au chocolat (frozen, trust me...), naan, simmer sauces, ginger granola cereal, Italian blood orange soda, lavash... I'm forgetting a bunch of stuff... - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
The Indian shelf-stable meals. The Indian frozen meals are pretty good, too. They're cheaper on dairy than most grocery stores. Their ice cream is private labeled Double Rainbow and is some of the best richest non-chunky ice cream you'll find. The mushroom hors d'oeuvres are to die for. I will scarf those in one sitting if someone doesn't stop me. I second the Italian blood orange soda.... more... - Spidra Webster
OOH! I remembered something else: they have pre-marinated meats. kalbi, carne asada, and the like. Those have been really good, too. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
The already-cooked carnitas is good to grab when you're too tired to do more than heat something up. - Spidra Webster
Harvest Hodgepodge frozen veggies (great for stir fry), frozen chicken breasts, turkey bacon (both regular and pepper), flavored sparkling water, organic lemonade, pomegranate lime juice (great with vodka), chicken apple sausage, guacamole, hummus, salsa especial (refrigerated section), salsa autentica (near the tortilla chips), simmer sauces (the masala one is my favorite), olive... more... - Corinne L
OH YES. The carne asada is so good you want to slap someone. Ground beef & ground turkey are great too. - Corinne L
I need to get the pomegranate lime juice next time I'm there... this is going to be one of my favorite threads, I can tell. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
They used to have a chicken salad sandwich on pretzel bread... I don't know if they still have it (pre-made, refrigerated section) but if they do... it was great. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
I am so hungry now. Eric, will your Trader Joe's be selling beer & wine? If so, and you like good wine, I'd recommend getting friendly with their wine buyer as they will clue you in to some great deals. - Corinne L
I can't even imagine a TJ's not selling wine. Wine & cheese were what the store was founded on. (That is, you've introduced me to the novelty of TJ's in possibly dry counties...) - Spidra Webster
Oh, I can't stress this strongly enough: get on the Fearless Flyer mailing list, or make sure you check it regularly online. I've made a number of discoveries reading that. - Bren - pseudo-Buddhist
In several places back east grocery stores can't sell beer, wine or liquor, Spidra. It was quite a shocker when I moved to CA 14 years ago & went to Safeway or Vons and there were ALL THE BOOZY THINGS. - Corinne L
We have a state law that a single entity can only sells alcohol at one location. They chose the Denver store for the booze. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
*kisses the ground of California* - Spidra Webster
HA HA HA Spidra! - Corinne L
Jo-Jo's, always get the Jo-Jo's. Never be embarrasses to impulse buy the check out counter chocolate, you can't go wrong. - Heather
I swear by their handmade tortillas. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Maple cream cookies. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Cheeses! Kalbi - my kids would eat it every day if I let them. Uncooked bratwurst. Their Clif bars tend to be cheaper than elsewhere. - Jaclyn aka spamgirl from Android
Pre-made curried chicken salad. TJ's brand pita crackers. Indian simmer sauces. Naan. Their pre-made thanksgiving stuffing is tasty. - Lnorigb from FFHound!
Peanut butter, apple sauce, coffee, Californian olive oil, roster red pepper soup, frozen pizza, ginger cookies, meat,syrah cheese, sprouted grain bread - Mr. The Jason Fleming from Android
The apple cider. - Julian
I should give their Fort Worth store another chance, armed with a shopping list from this post. - Greg GuitarBuster
pain au chocolat. And more pain au chocolat. - Glen Campbell
Nuts, California e.v. olive oil (local makers with $20/half liter EVOO say "get TJ's if you can't afford ours"), Israeli cous cous, maple syrup (we get Grade A Canadian, but there's also Grade B and Vermont), the three-small-chocolate-bars-in-a-wrapper Dark and Extra Dark varieties and the organic Extra Dark chocolate bars. Oh, and dried fruit. - Walt Crawford
Their nuts and dried fruit are wonderful! I keep a bag of the mesquite almonds in my drawer at work for snacks and their sweet and spicy pecans and dried cranberries are very tasty in salads. I also love their mild cheddar and triple cream brie cheese and they have a smoked mozzarella that was very good in my omelette the other night. - vicster: full-bodied
Do they have anything that is not pre-made? - Elena
Yes - you can get cheese, meats, vegetables etc. - Glen Campbell
Lots of stuff, Elena. TJ's is like any other grocery store in many respects, just on a smaller scale. Most of their items are TJ's own label(s). You could conceivably do all your grocery shopping there, but if there are certain brand items you want (e.g., Coca Cola products, Tyson poultry) you would have to go to your local major supermarket. - Corinne L
Coffee. Nuts. Frozen green beans. Appetizers. Frozen Indian foods. Simmer sauce. Pumpkin butter - Christina Pikas from iPhone
COOKIE BUTTER. - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
OMG how had we forgotten about Cookie Butter? - Julian
I'm not close enough to a Trader Joe's to go very often, unfortunately. When I do visit one, I make sure to check out the cheese selection and the beer and wine. - John (bird whisperer)
I refuse to even try the cookie butter because I'd go back 4 times a week to replenish my stock of it. - vicster: full-bodied
WHAT IS COOKIE BUTTER?? - Elena
The cheap wine been mentioned yet? - Joe
These are great. Joe, the cheap wine will not be available at the Colorado Springs location. Colorado only allows liquor sales at one location. This is why our Costco stores have a separate liquor store run by a small business, but obviously in partnership with Costco. - Eric - It's My Thing
Went to the TJ in Denver today. Got some cookie butter, sipping chocolate, Halloween Jo joe's, beer & wine. Didn't want to get anything that had to be refrigerated since I was an hour away from home. I'll save cheese & other cold goodies for the one her in C/S. - Elena

How We Compute: Flexible Hardware Required
"At last count, the list of portable machines keeping us connected has swelled to include smartphones, tablets, laptops, and, most recently, smartwatches. On one side, this arsenal of mobile devices allows us to create, play, and connect whenever inspiration strikes. Serendipity rules. On the other, there’s something slightly counterintuitive about a mobile lifestyle that requires us to own so many different tools. That’s why over the past few years, it’s become clear that the next era in computing will be defined by streamlining existing services, and reducing the number of devices we need without sacrificing any of their functionality or versatility." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet

Christian Right-Wingers Love Porn: New Studies Suggest the Bible Belt Has A Kinky Side
"In heavily religious states, abstinence is often pushed as the only safe sex, with very little to offer in the way of sexual education. Unfortunately, that leaves a growing number of people with questions about sex but no answers. Enter Google: the best way to find an answer to personal, possibly embarrassing questions without calling attention to yourself. So of course the study finds that religious communities have a higher percentage of sex-related searches. That’s what happens when you can’t find it elsewhere." - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
So, my daughter is on her way back home. She told us that the last leg was a 787 Dreamliner from Houston to Denver. Obviously coming from or going to somewhere international. Coming from? Ding Ding Ding, West Africa.

"Ah, frat boys. Always a reliable source of idiotic, ill-advised hijinks in the name of just havin’ a good time and chillaxin’. The latest example: Texas Tech University’s chapter of Phi Delta Theta, who have come under fire for displaying a “No Means Yes, Yes Means Anal” banner and a “vagina sprinkler” at a totally killer party last month, bruh. BroBible posted a few Snapchats from party attendees, who photographed the displays" - Eric - It's My Thing from Bookmarklet
