The three year old's preschool is talking about the Solar System and they don't include Pluto. Time to withdraw her in protest and switch to home schooling?

Of course the ruling class wants women to continue having babies without any social safety net to help raise them into healthy adults.
This is moving us to reversing Griswold v. Connecticut - WarLord

Now that employers can dictate what an employee's health insurance can be used for, how long til they dictate how you use your paycheck?
"We won't pay for health insurance if you buy cigarettes and soda with your paycheck" - Amit Patel
"We won't pay you if you use your pay to buy health insurance that covers birth control, because the insurance we provide, doesn't." - April Russo
This could get wibbly wobbly - Amit Patel
"We will pay for your birth control, because you might have a child that in 30 years will use the money we paid you to buy health insurance that offers birth control" - Amit Patel

Here's a better photo of the elephand bead. Sunday's photo had a little 'beauty blur' going on so I thought you might appreciate a cleaner shot. The blur definatly hid his flaws - like that #$%@ bit of blue glass under his eye. The ball came apart when I took him off the rod so he's a loss but still a good start on what could be a great bead. Just...

I shared a photo of the circus elephant on the ISGB (International Society of Glass Bead Makers) and he's nearing 100 likes - and some darn nice comments. *fans self* - Shannon - GlassMistress
I love this guy. Just adorable! - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Thanks! I really like him too...I hope I can get it worked out so I can make one with it cracking. I could do the 'ball' separate but I really dig it as one piece. - Shannon - GlassMistress

Supreme Court Majority Calls Case a Dispute Between Women and People : The New Yorker - http://www.newyorker.com/online...
Supreme Court Majority Calls Case a Dispute Between Women and People : The New Yorker
"WASHINGTON (The Borowitz Report)—By a 5–4 vote on Monday, the United States Supreme Court settled a dispute that Justice Samuel Alito said was “at its core about the rights of women versus the rights of people.” Writing for the majority, Justice Alito wrote, “It is the duty of this Court, whenever it sees that the rights of people are being threatened, to do our best to safeguard those rights. In this case, it is clear that people’s rights were being threatened by women.” Acknowledging that some women “might argue that they, too, have some claim to being people,” Justice Alito wrote, “That is an interesting question for another day.”" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"While the Court’s decision caused an uproar across the country, it received a big thumbs-up from one of the Justices who voted with the majority, Antonin Scalia. “This has been a crappy year or so around here, what with all that gay-marriage stuff, but at least we finished strong,” he said." - Jessie

Religious beliefs are a red herring. #HobbyLobby and other decisions like it are ultimately about keeping the ruling class in charge.

I get lots of email intended for people who put in my email address instead of their own, but the one from the hotel that instructed me "please make sure you wash all the body paint off before jumping into bed!" was probably the most unusual.
Also made me realize I'm probably missing out on something wild & crazy! - Amit Patel
Excellent advice. - Todd Hoff
Write back and tell them it is all water base paint. - Janet from FFHound!
I think thats the best part, body paint+bed.. ?? What better way to have fun eh ?? - Peter Dawson
I get a lot of the same, but even more emails sent to me by mistake. If the email seems real and sincere, I'll usually respond to let the person know they rang the wrong email, but if they keep mailing me, I'll usually write back with something crazy. That always stops them. - Brian Fitzpatrick
I have a canned response in gmail that I send to people who send me non-automated misdirected email, but a large part of it is automated stuff :( - Amit Patel

Oh, fun, I get a second legal notice from a company I've never done business with. First time I tried explaining that their client gave them my email address instead of their own. They never replied. They sent me a more threatening letter this time. Fun! - Amit Patel

People who have an AeroPress: how easy/hard is it to clean?
I find it really easy to clean. Just a very quick rinse, and wipe-down of the plunger end with a paper towel or cloth. It's one of the reasons I bought one for making coffee at work. - Jennifer Dittrich
Yup, very easy. Most of the grounds pop off the end quite easily with one push, after you remove the basket. - Kirsten
Easy. Very easy. I just rinse the plunger (no wiping), and the whole process takes [time to nearly boiling water]+1 minute. - lris
omg I bought an aeropress and it's the best coffee ever. french presses are a pita to clean, but the aero you just pop the puck into the trash, rinse the bottom of the plunger and bob's your uncle. Every once in a while i hand wash with dish detergent and that's super easy, too. - Christina Pikas
I found it a cinch to clean and it makes great coffee. - Jenny H. from Android
Yup, just a good hot water rinse! Every now and then we'll wash ours in hot soapy water and rinse and just air dry. - Melly

after a bit of digging around and reading, that thing specs out worse than the $100 pair of Sonys or Sennheisers frequently found mouldering in the corner of an iso booth in a run-down voice-over suite. this is definitely aimed at the gullible and uninformed. save your bread and go check out a pro audio web store like BSW or Sweetwater Sound. - Big Joe Silence
To play Devil's Advocate, it no new thing to hear people from studio background poo poo home audio gear, but where the studio needs level, controlled sound in a close environment, home enthusiast audio is a whole different ballgame. Often, you want that color to your sound. - Eric - For You Wack MCs! from iPhone
You want hyped frequency response? I understand the need to party, we are all consumers. There's cheaper solutions out there that don't scream "aging 1%er trust-fund kid" and will still match the drapes. - Big Joe Silence
Also, for future reference, no sane recording engineer would ever consider a set of headphones to be uncoloured or in any way flat or representative of the "true" sound, cos that's just not gonna happen outside of marketing and ad copy. In fact, in a studio, cans are pretty much always used for letting performing musicians listen to the monitor mix without leaking it into any live mics that may be around. - Big Joe Silence
But I'm not opinionated or anything. :) - Big Joe Silence

cans are also good for checking panning and stereo imaging. and for doing "deep listening" while in a chemically-enhanced state of mind. :D - Big Joe Silence
