I went to a coffee shop in the Twin Cities early,this morning. Their credit card "machine" was down. Turned on my Android tablet and it wouldn't boot up properly. Drove back home to Wisconsin and the local grocer's checkout system is down.
Dang technology anyhow! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
At this rate I may evolve from a duddite to a luddite... but would anyone even notice? - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

Perhaps I've become some sort of ambulatory destructive EMP device. Which doesn't bode well for me should the day arrive that I need a pacemaker implant. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Heading back to the Twin Cities today. I'll be attending the Red Green Show at The O'Shaunessy theater in St. Paul. I may try to get a roll of duct/duck tape signed. Keep and for those of you who'll be watching at home, keep your stick on the ice.
My sons bought the tickets for my Christmas present, so the three of us will be attending. A true male bonding experience, especially if the duct tape gets out of control. Looking forward to it. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
And yes, I WAS just up there on Sunday. The plan was that I would stay there until today, but that would've meant staying at my-house-that-is-no-longer-my-house. I've done this for holidays in the past and it generally goes okay, though always a bit weird to be there in these now-not-so-new circumstances. Plans changed later on Sunday when things became rather untenable as far as... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Love me some Red Green! [I just discovered that all 15 seasons are on YouTube: I need to get busy.] - Ken Morley
I didn't know Red Green's influence had spread to the U.S. Honestly, I kinda figured it was one of those "so Canadian no one else would get it" kind of shows. - Brent Schaus

BTW Greg, the show opened with him asking the entire audience to get on their feet, cross their arms, and utter that credo. [To those of you among the uninitiated: "When all else fails, play dead." Because it's the "Possum Lodge"... get it?] - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Thanks to fracking, U.S. carbon emissions are at the lowest levels in 20 years. -
Thanks to fracking, U.S. carbon emissions are at the lowest levels in 20 years.
Weather conditions around the world this summer have provided ample fodder for the global warming debate. Droughts and heat waves are a harbinger of our future, carbon cuts are needed now more than ever, and yet meaningful policies have not been enacted. But, beyond this well-trodden battlefield, something amazing has happened: Carbon-dioxide emissions in the United States have dropped to their lowest level in 20 years. Estimating on the basis of data from the US Energy Information Agency from the first five months of 2012, this year’s expected CO2 emissions have declined by more than 800 million tons, or 14 percent from their peak in 2007. The cause is an unprecedented switch to natural gas, which emits 45 percent less carbon per energy unit. The U.S. used to generate about half its electricity from coal, and roughly 20 percent from gas. Over the past five years, those numbers have changed, first slowly and now dramatically: In April of this year, coal’s share in power generation plummeted to just 32 percent, on par with gas. - Eric Logan from Bookmarklet
I'm still opposed to fracking despite the claims of lower CO2 emissions - Greg GuitarBuster
Is it better to pollute the water than the air? - Jenny H. from Android
The EPA is supposed to release a report soon. - Eric Logan
Amusing since I thought CO2 didn't matter. - Todd Hoff
It matters it's just not the control knob that it was touted to be. I think it's safe to say we don't want to be much above 600 PPM and energy innovation is the answer. - Eric Logan
Fracking is hardly innovation. It's the last gasp of an industry chewing up the world trying to maximize profits. - Todd Hoff
And since co2 now matters, imperfect control knob or not, I guess we should do something about it? - Todd Hoff
Natural gas is supposed to be a bridge fuel. I have concerns about methane and obviously water also. - Eric Logan
I oppose fracking for all the obvious reasons. - Sean McBride
What are the obvious reasons ? If continued carbon "pollution" is truly catastrophic ? - Eric Logan
"Is it better to pollute the water than the air? - Jenny H. from Android" Neither. But if they're polluting the water, they're doing it wrong. They've been fracking since 1949, so you would think they'd know by now. 65 years. They're not supposed to be using the water table or the drinking supply. They're supposed to be using waste water. - MRW_8
International Energy Agency doc on CO2 Emissions. - MRW_8
OSHA 8-hour limit on CO2 is 5,000 PPM. Submarine is 8,000 PPM. - MRW_8
CO2 Pollution level, dangerous, is 50,000 PPM (5% of atmosphere). - MRW_8
You breathe out 40,000 PPM of CO2 every five seconds of your life. - MRW_8
Unfortunately, that's not the way they use the water in the Barnett shale in Texas. They use fresh water and truck the fracking waste to open pits and injection wells. Not to mention the crappy casing work. - Greg GuitarBuster
Then who the hell is regulating them? They shouldn't be allowed to get away with this. It's like painting baby cribs with lead paint. - MRW_8
The fracking 'waste' is supposed to fill the holes after it squeezes the gas to the surface. - MRW_8

The ultimate "regulators" are the legislators who are doing everything they can to undercut/eliminate funding and staffing to agencies who *should* be doing onsite testing and sampling at these operations (mostly frack sand mining here in Wisconsin, though also some fracking extraction.)

Great points, Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ. The Oil Sands in Fort McMurray Alberta are so highly regulated that you can get an Environment Canada Widget for your Mac that gives you outdoor day and night air quality.

A fatal wait: Veterans languish and die on a VA hospital's secret list -
"At least 40 U.S. veterans died waiting for appointments at the Phoenix Veterans Affairs Health Care system, many of whom were placed on a secret waiting list. The secret list was part of an elaborate scheme designed by Veterans Affairs managers in Phoenix who were trying to hide that 1,400 to 1,600 sick veterans were forced to wait months to see a doctor, according to a recently retired top VA doctor and several high-level sources." - Dough Balls from Bookmarklet
This is so fucked, I can't even deal with it till I calm down. At least it's making the rounds though. Social media and forums of vet groups I follow are blowing up about it. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android
Meanwhile the hawks in Congress who want the U.S. to engage in intimidation through dick-swinging in the Ukraine are assuming more patriotic young men and women will step forward as "heroes" for the cause. Of course those "heroes" who are hurt but aren't "patriotic" enough to just die will become "lazy unemployed/entitlement-grabbing burdens on our nation" when they return injured and broken. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Besides "landlord", what modern words most evoke feudalism?
gentrification - Victor Ganata from iPhone
eminent domain (not that I feel that's a bad thing always but the word "domain" feels feudal to me). - Spidra Webster
Fealty - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
Realty --> realtor Fealty --> fealtor? - Spidra Webster
This is actually part of the reason behind why I hate addressing a group of women as "ladies". 'Lady' is the female equivalent to 'Lord' to me. - Spidra Webster

Of course, most of these aren't modern words but words that are medieval or pre-date the Middle Ages but have survived to our own in some form. - Spidra Webster
Yeah, I meant words that have survived till now. But I shoulda been more specific (and yet subjective too) by specifying modern -and- commonly used. - Andrew C (✔) from Android

Fun Fact From My Barber: The beard hair on the left of my face is 40% thicker than the right.
same here. 30%, at least. - Big Joe Silence
I don't know that mine is necessarily thicker on either side, but mine definitely grows toward the left; I have been known, on occasion, to brush it toward the right in order to try to straighten it out. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
In my case, since I try to sleep predominantly on my left side (for various medical reasons that I won't go into) my facial hair and my pate hair tend to thin on that side. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

The cats had a busy night: eight dead mice on the doormat this morning.
Wow! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
They've been bringing them to the door daily since a week, but this is a record. I have seen them late at night teaming up once they know our dog is inside. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I think I need to borrow a couple of them. I saw some tell tale signs of mice in my garage when it was really cold outside. Put out some Just One Bite baits and haven't seen any more signs of them. But I always wonder. Since I've been storing my neighbor's stuff, and will be for another week or so, I'd hate for them to have any critter damage. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Do they eat em? - Amir
Usually they don't. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
They are useful here, Mark. With the ground water so high the gophers are moving towards the house so the cats will be busy. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

90 degrees today. Going to be 99 degrees on Sunday. Spring is officially over in San Antonio.
*sekritly plans an October blizzard for Michigan* - Steven Perez
Could you redirect some of that winter weather towards San Antonio? - John (bird whisperer)
No he couldn't because he hates me apparently. - MoTO ChilliSauce
Every time I try, it boomerangs back to Barry. A mystery, methinks. - Steven Perez from Android
Spring is still trying to gain a sure foothold here. Below freezing tonight & tomorrow night. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
Wow, ASUS has a crappy support site. Click on the menu, goto "Self Service." Says I need to create a case file. Click on "Create case file" button, takes me to main menu. Rinse/ repeat. Tried "Live Chat", says I need to create a case file Rinse/repeat. And so on...
My Android tablet starts the power up sequence, but then goes into infinite loading mode after ASUS Logo appears. There logo says Inspiring "Innovation * Persistent Perfection"... guess they forgot to add "Sucky Support" to their tagline. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
Tried a hard reset with no luck. Just wanting to confirm that there isn't another reset sequence. Limited warranty is one year I purchased this one almost exactly one year ago. Need to get my battle armor on... gonna be a showdown. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
And now the dang thing won't power off either. Looks like I'll have to let the "loading" spiral keep spinning away until the battery runs down. This can't be good. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
This seems to be some sort of weird trend. I'm finding a lot of places lately where I end up in a vicious cycle on the phone; companies will have separate numbers for various things (sales, support, etc.), you call the number specific to what you want, and the main receptionist picks up, asking where you want your call directed, then they transfer your call, and you get a voicemail system telling you to call the number you called in the first place. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Also, the Live Chat support requires a model ID and a serial number. There's no plate or sticker with the serial number on the exterior of the tablet, so the way for me to get it is from the settings "info" screen, which I can't get to! Note to self: If,we get through alive, place sticker with serial number on bottom of tablet. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
Ugh. That's worse than the fact that the instruction manual for the Nexus 7 is only available as an e-book on the tablet itself; so you can't view the instructions until you've actually figured out how to use the stupid thing. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Okay... figured out that one of the two identically-sized pinhole openings is actually a microphone, and the other is the reset pinhole. Neither has any,kind of label or icon denoting function. In other words, I probably trashed the built-in mic while trying perform a yard reset. Oh well... anyway, after the battry ran down I hoped it might correct whatever power up glitch was causing... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android
[Ed. Note: As much as I may wish I could reset my yard, that wouldn't really help matters with my Android tablet, now would it! As you hopefully have discerned already, I intended to type HARD reset in the previous comment. Thank you for your patience.] - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Maybe it's time to buy a Nexus 7? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I fear you may be right, Mr. Noodle. I've tried several more resets, but it still won't get past the initial logo screen and the start of the ROM BIOS loading process. If this were a PC I'd listen for the hard drive initialization, and check CMOS settings. Maybe re-sys the system tracks on the boot drive. And ultimately re-flash the ROM bios. But I don't have a clue how to do comparable actions on a tablet. Wish I did. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

Wow, he can really draw a good crowd. The O'Shaunessey isn't a huge auditorium, but it isn't small either . Only a few empty seats in the place. Dude is making some money! Good show, though it was different than I had expected. He basically told stories and related jokes the whole time; a one man show. Was expecting that there would be a few skits or at least appearance by others from the show. Very funny in any case. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ from Android

Do others here enjoy creating fictional dialogue (or monologue) for the various images that appear here on FF. I post a few as comments to those posts, but mostly they just remain in my brain. I can entertain myself for hours in this way.
Animals are especially inspiring for such things, though images people can work well, too. Inanimate objects are sometimes the most conducive to creative dialogue. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
I received a very nice Thank You note from someone across the big water on Saturday. I was away on Sunday so just opened it yesterday. I'm considering sending a thank you note for the thank you note, but I'm pretty sure this would continue on into 'finity. Thank you, Helen. And HAPPY BIRTHDAY!
I once had a friend who wrote thank you notes and sent them IMMEDIATELY after receiving a gift, or any other kindness. Back in the days of one day mail service (in the same city, at least) her thank you notes would arrive the day after the gift had been given. She knew this was somewhat annoying to those of us who are terribly slow about such things, but that was a big part of why she did so. And that made it fun. In any case, I may have to do a stealth thank you when it is least expected. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Oklahoma Will Charge Customers Who Install Their Own Solar Panels | ThinkProgress -
Oklahoma Will Charge Customers Who Install Their Own Solar Panels | ThinkProgress
"Oklahoma residents who produce their own energy through solar panels or small wind turbines on their property will now be charged an additional fee, the result of a new bill passed by the state legislature and expected to be signed into law by Gov. Mary Fallin (R). On Monday, S.B. 1456 passed the state House 83-5 after no debate. The measure creates a new class of customers: those who install distributed power generation systems like solar panels or small wind turbines on their property and sell the excess energy back to the grid. While those with systems already installed won’t be affected, the new class of customers will now be charged a monthly fee — a shift that happened quickly and caught many in the state off guard. “We knew nothing about it and all of a sudden it’s attached to some other bill,” Ctaci Gary, owner of Sun City Oklahoma, told ThinkProgress. “It just appeared out of nowhere.”" - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

i need to meet both you guys. :) - Big Joe Silence
Mega jealous! - Jenny H. from Android
*melts* - Heleninstitches
Too bad it was the briefest of meet ups. Unfortunately, no beers were killed. We will have to fix that next time. - MoTO ChilliSauce from Android
If ever there was a recipe for trouble... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
We just didn't have enough time... this time - MoTO ChilliSauce from Android
2-part Question: 1) Right or Left-handed? 2) If using only one earphone, Right or Left ear? (format: R+L = Right-hand, Left-ear)
R+L - Micah
same - Anne Bouey
L+R, I usually walk on the right side of people, keeping the left ear open for possible interaction is a plus. - Neal Krummell
L+L - Kevin Johnson from Android
R+R, because the controls are on the right. - Not Me
R + L - Spidra Webster
L+L - Lnorigb from FFHound!
R+R - Bren
Right handed. Left ear. - Rodfather from Android
L, but I never go with just one ear. I'm either all or nothing. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
R+R - Jenny H. from Android
L+R, but the earphone thing is mostly due to physical oddities with my left ear. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
R+depends what side people try to talk to me through otherwise I'm always both. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
R+L - Harold
L+R, even before my iPod's headphone jack started to forget the left side audio. EDIT: thinking it over, now I think I preferred left. But the headphone jack's been busted for so long, I don't know anymore. - Betsy
L+no pref - Stephen Mack from iPhone
R+L - Melly
Right hand left ear, when I'm in bed watching Netflix or something on my phone, if I lie on my right side the earbud bugs the hell out of me. Because of the number of robberies/assaults in our area, I've taught Jayden to only listen with one ear in public so he won't be completely oblivious. He's left-handed & his listening ear appears to be his right. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
R+L - Mary Carmen
L+L - Julie Kane
R+no preference, but happens often - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
I spent the evening with two lovely cats on my lap, (and watching Frozen!) but when I wanted another brownie, or needed to top off my sangria, I pushed them to the floor. #sorrynotsorry #SaturdayFF
It can be done! - Derrick
A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
No amount of pussy gonna stop D gettin' it DONE. (Sorry, couldn't help myself). - Johnny from iPhone
They didn't seem to mind. - Derrick
I do it all the time. Mine have learned that if I say "I'm sorry" that they need to jump off of me. - Katy S from iPhone
They didn't claw your legs up in an attempt to stay on? - Melly
Nope. - Derrick from iPhone
NO! they're going to report you to the SPCA!!! (lol) - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
I just penned a lengthy #SaturdayFF in which I relate a quasi-romantic relationship during my college years, and the stupendously obtuse manner in which I mucked up everything. Just as I was about to cut & paste it into FF, sanity regained control of my brain. You have been spared this recount. You're welcome.
I may try to rework it as a graphic novel, however. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
My role will be portrayed by a Tony Stark-like character, and my female counterpart will bear a surprising resemblence to Scarlett Johansson. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

as currently as April of 2014 the ability to regularly correctly fold a fitted sheet is a court permissible way to prove that somebody is practicing witchcraft.
I had a successful moment last folding session. I was amazed and amused and certain I won't be able to repeat this. - Janet from FFHound!
Perfect != roll it into a ball and toss it into the linen closet? - Kevin Johnson from Android
^ Works for me. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
People keep trying to tell me/show me that folding a fitted sheet is actually possible. This is cruel deception at its worst. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
There are so many more important things to worry about. :) - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I get the 'how' but I lack the fitted sheet folding gene. - Shannon - GlassMistress
