this is underfaksink at its worzt - pb:
Petr, I have no idea what you mean, but thank you. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
@Kol .. :] that, partially, might have been the purpose.... I don't know it exactly either. :] .. was I reflecting on a cat under the fax, and that it is hard to fax that way ... /?:] ... "underfaxing at its worst" .. - pb:
Ah, OK, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
there ya have me ! :] .... see, to be honest with you, i saw this pic couple days ago, but i let it go, without posting it ..... what does that make me? :] - pb:
OMGosh, just 23 more likes to beat this: http://beta.friendfeed.com/imified... ;-) - Kol Tregaskes

Just 5 more likes needed. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Fax, Petr. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
even a flat cat... faxes just can't handle the hair. You'd have to shave the cat first, else the hair will burn and stick to the drum... a mess! (I am extrapolating from transparencies, mind, i don't have access to a cat to test) - Iphigenie
Hehe, Joelle. This is now tied for the 'likes' top stop. One more then, hehe. :-) - Kol Tregaskes

I couldn't believe it when I logged on from the morning over posting it and saw it was at something 200 likes! You all have a strange fetish with cats and fax machines, hehe. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Am I the only one who saw this and their first thought was - My goodness did someone break that cats neck? It still freaks me out a little - Steve C, Team Marina
Steve, it does look a little out of place, but cats are pretty bendy. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
They fax much better if you flatten them first. What? - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
LOL, Kevin. - Kol Tregaskes
i can also imagine the cat going there cause it is snug and warm - Iphigenie
Ey, it would be a tad warm on there, especially after a long working day. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Caption which needs to be said aloud: Uh Ohz, I'm totally FAXED! - sofarsoShawn
Hehe, Shawn. 10 more for the big 5-0-0. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Countdown! 8 more now! - Mike Nayyar

Steven Perez
Last survivor of a doomed planet in a distant galaxy, a baby girl was launched in a rocket designed by her parents to flee the destruction. Traveling across the stars, the rocket came to rest on a planet of sentient penguins, whose civilization was based on the tenets of liberty, freedom and surprise naps. Adopted by a barren couple, the young girl grew to adulthood rapidly in the altered gravity of her new homeworld. Her abilities far outstripped the more modest avian abilities, and so, when she reached maturity, she launched herself into the void in her rocket and traveled the stars, seeking a place to call her own. After many adventures, she settled on the planet Earth and adopted the moniker Penguin, after her foster mother. With her abilities of flight, super-strength and super-speed, Penguin has been instrumental in turning back the Shadows and the Borg from destroying her new home. She now resides in her Fortress of Solitude and wears the stripey socks that are a symbol of her avian roots. - Steven Perez
I don't think Penguin suffers from such problems. She frequently makes use of advanced mathematics that she learned in her time among the stars. :) - Steven Perez
Bump. - Steven Perez
I forgot all about this! Spot on with the bio, man, I should get you to write the full novelisation. - Lola Bean (Penguin)
You're not blocked; I have a private feed and your sub request was buried (I'm ridiculously lazy about approving requests, lol). You should be all set now! :) - Lola Bean (Penguin)
Bump. - Steven Perez
All I can think is "my hair was so dark back then" haha. - Lola Bean (Penguin)

Please note that Cameron has created more per year than any previous PM so far!!! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... ~ Shadow justice secretary Sadiq Khan said: "Nick Clegg marched his MPs through the voting lobbies in support of the harsh and unfair policies of this Tory-led Government in anticipation of receiving Lords reform in return.

Update: House of Lords reform in tatters, The Prime Minister told Mr Clegg that there was no way he could get enough support to force the measure through the House of Commons and that the Government needed to shelve the plan ahead of a planned re-launch in September.

I was gonna say...doesn't the FF group on Last.fm take care of this? - Spidra Webster
I finally found one person on my friends' list who we are "Very High" - Shevonne
MWM has a last.fm group at last.fm that you may want to check out - RAPatton from iPhone
Low? Strange, I like (and listen to) most of your top artists. http://www.last.fm/user... - Marcos
I think you befriended me on it, but mine's http://last.fm/user/vmlemon. - Tyson Key
Crud - dropped this on the wrong FF post. Ah well! Sorry to whomever I apparently spammed! http://www.last.fm/user... - Ciaoenrico
And frankly, I like adding friends with whom I have a low compatibility. It helps me hear music I never would have found in the first place. I never would have listened to a lot of my favorite music if someone hadn't said, "just try it." - Ciaoenrico
Heh, "Music you have in common includes ABBA and Depeche Mode"... - Tyson Key
Last.fm profile exchange? I'm at http://www.last.fm/user... - Czar
Haggis, your link didn't work. - Kol Tregaskes
Fossil Huntress, you have the highest compatibility so far. Low but still the highest. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
ABBA and Depeche Mode are killer. Whose said that? Whom should I be friending there? :) - Ciaoenrico
No me. ;-) - Kol Tregaskes
Czar, yep basically it is. :-) - Kol Tregaskes
Your musical compatibility with koltregaskes is Very Low. Music you have in common includes Sneaker Pimps, Hybrid, Snake River Conspiracy, VAST and The Boxer Rebellion. (that's because I listen to a lot of obscure stuff) http://www.last.fm/user/app103 - April Russo (FForever!)
http://www.last.fm/listen... BTW, I send my Blip.FM feed to Last.FM. I fell asleep several times while listening to Blip, so there's some music in there that I don't necessarily like. But, for the most part, it's mine. - Michael Fidler

If I played my 'best of the best' playlist one day would anyone be interested? It's 45 songs and iTunes tells me it's 4 hours. I can post a FF message when I start and finish and you can check the tunes out. - Kol Tregaskes
Thanks for all the friends request BTW, I work up this morning to 30 of them in my inbox. :-) I've added you all. - Kol Tregaskes

Franc, you can recommendations and more choice in your Neighbourhood radios stations. - Kol Tregaskes
Welp. Ya'll have been friended and oddly enough I only had 4 with high compatibility. Lucky for me that means there is a lot more music our there that I need to be turned on to. Thanks, Kol! :-) - Mathew A. Koeneker

Sometimes it doesn't take a gift or even a phone call. Today was a disappointing day for my family. My brother, Frank who has been battling cancer for the last six months, was scheduled to have his tumor surgically removed today. It didn't work out that way. - Jim #teamFFrank from Posterous
The surgeon was concerned that Frank's tumor had grown larger in recent weeks and wanted an MRI done to see if she would have to revise her plan for the surgery. As a result the surgery was put off until Friday at the earliest and possibly next Wednesday. - Jim #teamFFrank
This was a hard pill to swallow, but we're doing the best we can. Bearing with us in our difficulty are dozens and even hundreds of people around the world, some of whom we will never meet in person in this life, who are praying for Frank and expressing support for him and my family. - Jim #teamFFrank
The simplest and, to me, the most moving show of support came from my friends on the social networking site Friendfeed. A while ago, my sister snapped a pic of me, my wife and our daughters with Frank. We were all wearing shirts that my mother had made for us which say, "Team Frank" on them. Frank has his own shirt which says simply "Frank." - Jim #teamFFrank
Someone, I'm not sure who, on Friendfeed who had seen that picture simply changed their user name to include Team Frank. That's all it took. - Jim #teamFFrank
Throughout the morning as we waited for answers and received none, and then through the afternoon back at home, I checked in on Friendfeed. Every single time it opened in my browser, at least one more user, sometimes four or five, had changed their names to include Team Frank. I told my parents, my sister and my brother about it before I left the hospital. All afternoon, as I sat trying... more... - Jim #teamFFrank
I'm amazed, touched, humbled and grateful. So is my family. - Jim #teamFFrank
Later tonight, or tomorrow or whenever, all those friendfeed users will change their names back, but I and my family will never forget the day a bunch of my virtual, but very real, friends did a simple thing that brought us all a tremendous amount of comfort, blessing and support. - Jim #teamFFrank
So, Friendfeed, Team Frank says thank you and bless you. - Jim #teamFFrank
I have tears in my eyes and there aren't many of us who's lives haven't been touched by cancer. Whatever we can do, know that we will, and that you have a bunch of is in your corner and Frank's as well. <3 - Derrick
Thanks to your whole family for being such great examples! - Kevin L
Let us know if there's more us peeps around the world can do. Take care of your wonderful family as best you can. - Steve C, Team Marina
Friendfeeders, whether they changed their user names or not, have been a mainstay of support for me personally throughout this time. Today was just one more example of how supportive you all have been for months now! - Jim #teamFFrank
Take it from this survivor, you brother will kick cancer's ass. He is surrounded by love and support which are crucial to fighting the fight. He will beat this. Thinking do many good thoughts for y'all. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Like Derrick, I too have tears in my eyes. Many blessings to you and your family as you move through this process. Go Team Frank! Where can the rest of us get a t-shirt?! - Corinne L
I'm teary just reading this. I <3 my FFriends! - LB needs a break. from YouFeed

From Jim's FB today: "From an email I received from a member of our church just now: I have a feelng that Jesus is standing by the gate, or the front door, or whatever it is that leads into heaven, wearing a Team Frank tee shirt and waiting to give his friend a great big welcome. I think all of us feel like we know Frank, and we're glad we do." <3 - LB needs a break.

Are there any other grazers that behave like this? Or just goats? But then again, goats are incredibly agile, since there are some that live on cliff edges, which is amazing when you think about it, so not surprising they can climb trees. - Halil

Saw him live in Hawaii. He tore it up. RIP. - Josh Haley
saw him co-headlining with Jeff Beck in 1989. he drove up in his car (this was in Dallas at the State Fair Colosseum) and, after he pulled through the gates into the load-in area, he got out and chatted with the fans hanging over the wall and signed things for them for close to 20 minutes before someone came and got him to come inside. seemed like a really nice guy. he and his band really did an outstanding show, too. - Big Joe Silenced

FF Team, how come you can't find your Twitter friends on the service any longer? Is this due to Twitter changes? Are there plans to restore it? Thanks.

"The Barabar Caves are some 35Km north of Gaya, in the state of Bihar. They were visited by author E.M. Forster on one of his two visits to India. Struck by their curious echo, he used them as a central location in his book 'A Passage To India', renaming them 'The Marabar Caves' for the story. The Marabar Caves don't really exist. Well, that's almost true. You can find out more about them on my Marabar Caves page, but for now, lets talk Barabar." - Maitani from Bookmarklet

Dido Elizabeth Belle (1761-1804) was an illegitimate daughter of John Lindsay and an African slave woman known only as Belle. Very little is known about Belle only that she was black and a slave. Her daughter Dido lived in the household of the Earl of Mansfield who was her father's Uncle and her Great-Uncle. - Halil from Bookmarklet
Lindsay sent the child to his uncle, the Earl of Mansfield, who lived with his family at Kenwood House in Hampstead, England, which was then just outside London. He and his wife, who were childless, were already raising her cousin Elizabeth Murray after her mother's death; Elizabeth was about the same age as Dido. It is possible Mansfield took her in as Elizabeth's playmate and, later... more... - Halil
Lord Mansfield himself resolved this paradox in his capacity as Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales.

Update on killing of elderly black Marine veteran by police: no charges will be filed
No criminal charges will be filed in the fatal police shooting of Kenneth Chamberlain, Sr., a 68-year-old Marine vet. He was shot to death in his White Plains, NY apartment after his medical alert device accidentally went off and signalled police to his apartment. According to reports, audio recordings captured by that device showed that a responding officer used racial slurs in addressing the man. Coverage around the web: CNN, Associated Press, CBS NYC, NY Daily News, The Journal News, NY Mag. Anthony Carelli, the White Plains police officer who killed Chamberlain, has been accused in a separate racially-charged incident of police brutality. - Winckel from Bookmarklet
It would seem that in the US - as in the UK - the police are virtually untouchable. - Winckel

North Pennines: high, rain-glimmering roads, precipitous valleys, gritstone chimneys and shafts abandoned among the cotton-grass of the moors. Washing-floors and waterwheels by upland streams, stone portals in the flanks of the hills leading to the mines. The landscape of WH.Auden's earliest poetry: Head-gears gaunt on grass-grown pit-banks, seams abandoned years ago; Drop a stone and listen for its splash in flooded dark below. . . The seams of coal and veins of lead below the moors are rich in prismatic minerals as well as in metalliferous ore. Auden wrote in the 1930s of lead-mines in decline: ghosts of industry in remote country. But, in the 19th century, lead extraction had flourished in Weardale and on Alston Moor as part of the mining activity which stretched across the north of England from County Durham and Northumberland, to West Cumberland and the Isle of Man.

Papers in the case of a spar-box, recently sold at Leyburn in Yorkshire, establish a date in the 1830s, thus constituting a conjectural first dated example.

The Claim: Cold Temperatures Improve Sleep | New York Times - http://www.nytimes.com/glogin...
The Claim: Cold Temperatures Improve Sleep | New York Times
“Studies have found that in general, the optimal temperature for sleep is quite cool, around 60 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit. For some, temperatures that fall too far below or above this range can lead to restlessness.” - Anthony Citrano from Bookmarklet
Finally a study I believe! If I don't sleep in a cold room, I can't sleep. - Shevonne
Makes sense to me. It gets warm enough some evenings to where I have a hell of a time getting a good sleep in. - Jonathan Hardesty
60-68 seems REALLY low though. Dang, I thought setting the a/c to 77/78 was low enough already. - rønin
@ronin No way. 68 for me. - Shevonne
I can believe this. I much prefer a cool room, whatever the season. - John (bird whisperer)
Definitely have to have a cool room to sleep properly. Few things worse than waking up in the middle of the night sweating (and no, not in a good way...) - FFing Enigma
I don't want to be baking hot, but I can't sleep if I'm too cold. I get cold easily, and then my hands and feet go dead and white. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
I was just talking about this to a friend who asked me to split the cost of a hotel room. I had to explain how I always keep the room cool, while bundled under the blankets. - Anika
Side benefit of sleeping in a cold room: Wife is much much much cuddlier. - Wirehead
For those who, as I did, wondered how cold you feel at 60-68° F : its's a temeprature between 16° Celsius and 20° Celsius. - Zackatoustra
Yes! I love sleeping at about 65/66 degrees. Like LLL, I like to use the big comforter. I feel more comfortable and relaxed if I can breathe the cooler air. - Katy S
Sent this story to my wife, who likes it a bit warmer for the kids. - Hutch Carpenter
I thought it was just me. My sleep is much worse at 76-80+ temperatures. Normally I like 72-73 indoors, so 60-68 seems cool. Maybe it is better for sleep. :-) - Mitchell Tsai
Hmmm,I normally keep my house around 68 but then I'm British and used to cold old drafty houses - Sally Church
i think there is also cultural preferences/biases. when we lived in the UK we were amazed at how almost everyone turned their heat off completely at nite, thru-out the winter. when we came back, we began sleeping cooler, and love it. - Thom Kennon
Good point Thom, I find American houses far too warm and stuffy in the winter. - Sally Church
Sally, I'm with you: 68 is good, but 65 in the winter is AOK for me as well. I can wear socks and a snuggly shirt for less than I can heat the house to 70. - FFing Enigma
So there is a reason I use my ceiling fan at full speed at night. Interesting. - Ryan Massie
Ryan - indeed. love a good sleepybreeze. although your comment reminds me of how many hotel rooms and other rooms I go into where the ceiling fans are set incorrectly... I used to work in a lighting store so I notice such things. ;) [it's supposed to blow DOWN during the summer and UP during the winter] - Anthony Citrano
I'm always frustrated by the fact that hotel rooms do not have ceiling fans. I have trouble sleeping without the breeze. - Dennis O'Neil
I seem to be at the 68 degree end of the range, while my wife seems to be closer to the 60 degree end of the range for our optimal sleeping temperatures. :) - Kristin of Two Everything
I knew it! - Shey
LOL, silly Scott! In summer, the thermostat goes to 74 at night. In winter, I usually set it for about 67 during the day and 65-66 at night. Bundling up in blankets and comforter FTW! - Ordinarybug Heather
i believe it. - Carolyn Chan
i thought it was the opposite. - Kamamiya

"I think with Cameron's statement today, he's let down the victims of press abuse," he said. "He's also ripped out the heart and soul of the Leveson report and at the same time, some papers tomorrow will call him courageous, although the British public will know that the slippery slope towards self-regulation has also let them down terribly as well."" - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

Briton arrested for burning poppy photo on Remembrance Day — RT
"A man in Kent, England, has been arrested after posting a picture of a burning poppy online on Remembrance Day. The arrest sparked indignation with free speech advocates, who note it in a line of heavy-handed responses to online activity in the UK. The arrest comes as British legal officials are considering a set of clear guidelines about what can and cannot be said on the Internet, reports the UK's PC Pro Magazine. "A man from Aylesham has tonight been arrested on suspicion of malicious telecommunications," Kent's police said in a statement. "This follows a posting on a social network site of a burning poppy." The 19-year old suspect is currently out on bail as his post faces further investigation. However, lawyers and activists are using social networking sites to chastise Kent's law enforcement officials over the incident. "Dear idiots at @kent_police, burning a poppy may be obnoxious, but it is not a criminal offence," tweeted legal commentator David Allen Green. "What was the... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
The poppy was a puzzle to me when i came to the UK, lots of cultural pressure to wear it. Seems hypocritical to have all these ceremonies and gestures of respect for veterans yet nothing in practice. A system leaving veterans in the lurch, and people expected to donate to make up for it... very weird from outside. - Iphigenie
Yes, I've noticed that there's a lot of peer pressure to wear it. Recently I began to wonder whether there is a cultural tradition of these appeals in the UK. I saw a show about healthcare before the NHS and they said there were a lot of local charity appeals to raise $ for hospitals. There was also the Alexandra Rose. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... And there seems to... more... - Spidra Webster

Billionaires' basements: the luxury bunkers making holes in London streets | Art and design | The Guardian
"Walking around the stuccoed streets of Kensington and Chelsea today, you are in for a surreal sight. The marching rows of doric columns, pedimented porticoes and dentilled cornices that define these imposing ranks of wedding-cake mansions have been joined by an unlikely addition to the classical architectural vocabulary. Poking up at regular intervals, thrusting outwards from their moulded openings as if performing a salute to passers-by, are lines of angled conveyor belts. Slowly rumbling away, they reach high above the trees, pouring a continuous stream of rubble into the cradles of awaiting skips. You would be forgiven for thinking that the residents of the royal borough have established a kind of coal-mining cottage industry. Or maybe they're digging for gold? "It is an absolute disgrace," says one elderly resident, out walking her freshly coiffed miniature poodle in between the rows of hoarded-off skips. "It feels like they've turned Kensington into a war zone." The reason for... more... - Son of Groucho from Bookmarklet

Library closures may be unlawful, MPs warn. About 600 libraries across England have reportedly closed amid budget cuts. Others have reduced opening hours, cut staff or transferred the running of libraries to volunteers.
Councils that cut library services are at risk of failing in their legal duty to provide a "comprehensive and efficient" service, MPs have warned. The most widely reported closures include six out of 12 libraries in the London Borough of Brent, five out of 11 on the Isle of Wight and nine out of 24 in Dorset. - Halil from Bookmarklet
