OH MY GOD I'M FINNA GRADUATE. It feels like this journey has taken forever, but all of it is worth it, and I wouldn't trade any part of it for the world. I don't even know how I'm going to pay for summer session, but I can't let that stop me from registering, and I won't.
I am so fucking proud of myself for sticking with it. It has been hard, and sometimes I have wanted to be like fuck it, but I am going to be graduating with honors, so there's that. - Nellie Oleson
So awesome - many, many congratulations! - Jennifer Dittrich
Thanks, Jenn! <3 - Nellie Oleson

So, my nephew, who is pre-enlisted in the Marines for after college and is a devout Christian, reblogged this over on FB. I felt the undeniable need to respond and did so with this:
1. Torture does not work. The DoD, CIA, and FBI themselves admit this. It has been proven time and again by those agencies and others. - Michael W. May
2. Enemy Combatants, legally known as unlawful combatants, while not subject to the Geneva Convention and treatment of POWs, are entitled to lawful treatment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. As a fighting force, our code of conduct declares we are better than that. - Michael W. May
3. On 18 April 1988, the United States of America signed the United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (commonly known as the United Nations Convention against Torture). On 21 October 1994, we radified it. As a nation, before the eyes of the world, we declared we are better than that. - Michael W. May
4. 657 of the 779 detainees imprisoned at Gantonimo since 2002 have been released. In other words, 92% of those we held indefinitely and tortured we had insufficient evidence to formally charge and bring before a military tribunal. Oops. - Michael W. May
5. As of January, 54 more of those 122 currently held are awaiting release, determined to also have insufficient evidence of guilt. We are still holding people against their will whom we cannot even bring formal charges against, people who may have been tortured. - Michael W. May
6. Christian religions, as well as all other prominent religions, teach love, forgiveness, patience, kindness, and hold high truth. Jesus never preached simulated drowning or deprivation of sleep against ones enemies. He washed their feet. He said to love others as you would yourself, to offer the other cheek when struck, and that what we do to others, we do to Him. - Michael W. May
7. We are better than this. - Michael W. May
It obviously really irked me. - Michael W. May
I made the mistake of clicking through to the OP and the comments made me ill. (will I ever learn?) I hope your nephew reads your words and heeds them. We don't need people joining the military who think like this. My heart sinks at the thought of men and women joining the military with these kinds of ideas in their heads. That's not what it should be about at all. - Hookuh Tinypants
Thank you, Michael. Great info... I saw a post like that and avoided it on my timeline. Feeling compelled to post these points that direction. - SAM
Nicely done. - Melly
Feel free to use liberally. I was adding links to each point, but they are each so easily searched, I figured it was up to detractors to prove them wrong. - Michael W. May
Posted to weird uncle's post on Fb. Thank you, sir. - SAM
After he replied with a 'doesn't mean I believe all of it' and I asked him to clarify what part he did believe, nephew deleted his repost without further comment. I am hoping it was because he seriously started to think. - Michael W. May

Two ER trips for the boy yesterday. Neither of us parentals have ever gone to one it's eye opening what a big city ER looks like at 2am. Boy turned corner today on virus of doom. So hopefully no more trips for long time. I don't know how Adam and Tamara survived all the trips in Marina's first year.
*hug* I'm sorry. That sounds very stressful - Soup in a TARDIS
Ooof. I'm so sorry you had to go through that, but glad to hear he appears to be on the mend. - Jennifer Dittrich
*hugs* I'm so glad Jeffrey is on the mend. ER visits are never fun. I'm just glad that he didn't have to be admitted! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
How scary. I hope he's gets better soon. - Anika
Hugs - Janet from FFHound!
Poor wee one. :( - Alix May
Aw, man. I'm sorry to hear that and hope he recovers soon. - Spidra Webster
I'm glad Baby Boy is on the mend, but am sorry it took trips to the ER to get him back on the right track. *hugs* - Half Pint

Remember that course of action I suggested 2 months ago about our mobile broadband solution for work? Yeah, we have to do that now because your imagined way turned out to be... wait for it... non-existent. Excuse me if I'm a little stressed as I now have to do 2 weeks of work in 7 hours to have it up and running.
... and, yes, I'm going to HMMMPH and sigh like a muthafucker everytime you say "Why didn;t we do this in the first place?" - Johnny
Starting to think it’s impossible to get through a car service w/out dropping at least half a grand on repairs.
Also a lil' irritating when the labor to parts cost ratio is 4:1. - rønin
It's true. - Eric - Let Me Know
Also annoying when everything has to be done in pairs. Can't just fix the one leaky shock/replace one worn tire, gotta do at least two. And realign, realign after everything. - rønin

Confession: I just had to try making a black and white tree bead. It's a stolen concept but I couldn't resist
*adds more beads to wishlist* - Hookuh Tinypants
Great artists steal :-) - Todd Hoff
I couldn't help it .. I just couldn't ....but I'm thinking the judge isn't gonna buy that. I don't know if I can sell these in good conscious or not. I certainly wouldn't sell them anywhere that was in direct competition with the original maker. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Those are lovely. - SAM
Here's the original and its a gazillion times lovlier - Shannon - GlassMistress
omg, I want one!! are they on your etsy? (I like your shapes better) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Really nice S! - VALZONE#NEWHIP
Stephanie I haven't posted them anywhere. I'm on the fence whether selling them is really ethical or not ... in the same breath I want to make more of them because I enjoyed the challenge. - Shannon - GlassMistress
lovely! - ~Courtney F
Can you contact the person you got the idea from, and ask their blessing to sell yours? - Jenica
Do you have a e-newsletter that you send out to regular customers with updates on your bead show appearances, new beads, special deals/Etsy coupon codes, etc.? This may be an item that your regulars would be interested in purchasing privately. - Corinne L
^ This. I mean, even if you feel like this is something you can't publicly sell, believe us when we say we love it and would totally buy (but keep it on the DL) your awesome beads. Honestly, I think that taking inspiration from someone's design and then working it to be your own style isn't unethical at all. Art begets art. You could do a whole series of these with different ginko leaves, maple leaves, owls, animal paw prints, etc. I would kill for a bead like this of a giant redwood. :) - Hookuh Tinypants
If you were directly copying, I could see not competing, but yours are different. (I like them better.) I think it's fine to sell them wherever, lots of people take inspiration from others. - Heather

About to meet with the attorney and learn what happens next. Brave face on!
Good luck! - Anika
There were a bunch of errors in the owner's complaint that I didn't catch. Attorney prepared an amended answer that I'm on my way to file. This is to buy us time but the scariest part is wondering if in the end the court will order me to pay the owner for the time we've been here not paying rent. That would take all the $$ I've saved up for a move in/deposit. But, all that in time. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Keep the faith. And let us know how we can help. You know we got your back. - Mary Carmen
I do know that. Thank you, Luv. got a referral to meet with a lawyer from a different group who may represent me further. I talk to that person on Wednesday. - Starmama

Man on the phone asking for service at a church, he's a little grumpy and getting more so as I ask questions like 'what kind of machine' and 'what is it doing or not doing'. The final straw appeared to be my asking for the address, "Christ! I don't know the got-damn address!" hah!
Reminds me of a story a friend of mine's mother told me long ago: She (who was a pastor) was driving down the road and saw a minivan with a "Honk if you love Jesus" bumper sticker. She decided on a whim to honk. The driver of the minivan flipped her off. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Korean ‘Fire Noodle Challenge’ Spreads Online | KoreAm Journal - Korean America's Premier Magazine
"There’s been a recent surge of people trying to eat Samyang’s Bool Dak Bokkeum Myun (translation: Flaming Chicken Fried Noodles), one of South Korea’s spiciest ramens, as quickly as possible on YouTube. Why are so many people doing this sadistic challenge? I have no idea, but watching strangers cry and writhe in food pain is surprisingly entertaining." - rønin from Bookmarklet
Nope. I like spicy noodles, but these sound ridiculous. The lady at the store even warned me off of them. - Anika
I'm not a big fan of Korean ramen to begin w/but I'd try it once if I happened to see it. - rønin
Ok so I bought one while we were at H-Mart this weekend. - rønin
Good luck! ;) - Jenny H. from Android
Ok well that wasn't so bad. But possibly because I left some water in before I put in the hot packet. The burn kinda sneaks up on you and lingers though. And I'm salivating like crazy. And my lips feel puffy. Despite the spiciness it's actually kinda tasty. - rønin
So, I'll pass. I love spicy foods, but when my lips feel different, it's not even fun. Glad to heard they taste good, though. - Anika
I'd try it again. That guy who ate 5 packs in one sitting is crazy though. I was almost at my limit by the end of just one. And that's even after my wife had a couple of bites. - rønin
Well now I want to try this... - Hookuh Tinypants

Cookbook Review: Gabrielle Hamilton's Prune - Eater -
"But I don't think recipes are the primary thing Prune has to offer. I realize that's maybe a strange thing to say about a cookbook, but in this case the value lies not in the food you make with this book, but in the lessons you can learn from it as a whole. The book seems to be meant to be read cover-to-cover: not as a collection of recipes, but as one giant recipe for a restaurant." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet

Distillery tour?
yes, please. - Kevin Johnson
Sure! - Marie
Between Merry saying she's had "too many cookies" - whatever those words mean - and you acting like this is an actual question, I'm feeling like I don't understand English today. Too many cookies is NOT a thing and OF COURSE you take the distillery tour. Especially if it comes with samples... ;) - WebGoddess

"You can’t get good chicken fat here in the States. A USDA plant needs approval for each part of the animal they want to use: necks, wings, heads, whatever. A guy at one of the chicken farms we use says he throws all his chicken fat away; it’s too much of a hassle to get it USDA approved, and nobody wants to buy it." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"So I use whatever I can get. It’s not bad. It’s good, but it’s not as delicious. At the shop, people are like, You could use Flying Pigs Farms or whatever, and it’s like, Yeah, but they want $15 per pound for their birds. Then they’ll say, Why don’t you use pastured, sustainable, organic meat? And I’m like, Will you pay $25 per bowl of ramen? People think that’s terrible, but it’s... more... - Andrew C (✔)
"The point is, ramen is so cheap compared to all the work that goes into it. Food in general should be much more expensive than it is. David had a great quote in Lucky Peach about how an Italian restaurant can charge you $28 for spaghetti pomodoro, and the fucking chef just opens a can of San Marzano tomatoes, breaks them up, mixes ’em with garlic and olive oil, and people are like, Oh... more... - Andrew C (✔)
I like the point he makes about being able to properly critique things like ramen - most Americans just don't have that background. We know from sandwiches, and can understand when the bread is wrong, or the condiments don't work, but we're lacking that knowledge about noodles and tare, so the stuff we nitpick about is just wrong. - Jennifer Dittrich
Could Kool-Aid Man Really Bust Through a Brick Wall? Science Finally Has an Answer | Adweek -
Could Kool-Aid Man Really Bust Through a Brick Wall? Science Finally Has an Answer | Adweek
"In short, the answer is: Yes, Kool-Aid man could, though he probably wouldn't feel too great afterwards. It turns out that scaling an ordinary pitcher up to six feet, then filling it with the correct amount of Kool-Aid would make Kool-Aid Man an 11,000-pound elephant-size beast with glass at least 3.6 inches thick. Even a creature made of ordinary glass would be able to break through a brick wall at that size by getting up to a run, but we don't actually know what kind of glass Kool-Aid Man is made from. Heck, he could be made from Pyrex. Nonetheless, the video explores how laminated glass (the bullet-proof stuff) would help him survive the inevitable surface cracks from his wall-breaking feats, but it doesn't cover fully tempered glass, heat-strengthened material or any of the many other glass varieties. Certainly, there's a materials scientist out there who could, with enough zeal, create the proper thickness, tempering and coating combination that would let Kool-Aid man break through more than just one wall." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
