Pyura chilensis: the closest thing to getting blood from a stone | Running Ponies, Scientific American Blog Network
"“Period Rock? You’re calling me Period Rock now? Guys, seriously, I might look like a stone, but that doesn’t mean I have the heart of one. Why doesn’t anyone ever just call me Michael?”" - edythe from Bookmarklet
LOL @ tomato thunderegg. Pyura chilensis look so weird and cool. I don't know if I'd be brave enough to eat one, though. - Jennifer Dittrich
LOL. I'd try one (cooked). - John (bird whisperer)
Hmm. I could probably be talked into it; I've eaten bugs, on purpose. This can't be too much weirder, right? Now I just need to get to Chile. - Jennifer Dittrich
Probably nothing too wrong with eating it. It's related to the violet (vee-o-lay) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki..., I think, which is another sea squirt and is listed in my 1001 Foods You Must Taste Before You Die book. Someone says it tastes "soapy" on one site... Or like iodine. (What does that taste like?) I was just guessing about it being related. Turns out I was right. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... (A pineapple under the sea...) - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)

Jesse Michener, Mom, Aims To Change School Policy After Kids Are Severely Sunburned - http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012...
Jesse Michener, Mom, Aims To Change School Policy After Kids Are Severely Sunburned
"Tacoma Public School district spokesman Dan Voelpel told Yahoo! Shine that, according to statewide law, teachers are not allowed to apply sunscreen to students and students can only apply it to themselves if they have a doctor's note. Mom was particularly outraged because her daughter Zoe has a form of Albinism. She said the school's staff was aware of her condition, and they still didn't make an exception." - edythe from Bookmarklet
this is ridiculous. - edythe
And in this case, it's compounded by a silly no-hats policy. - John (bird whisperer)
OMG. Those poor kids. - Jenny H.
Seems like hats are pretty important for a field day, poor things. A friend of mine lives in Australia and is school shopping for her kid. I was interested to learn that all schools there (or at least all schools in her area) include hats as part of the uniform code. - Soup in a TARDIS
Yup. "No hat, no play". At Josiah's school, that means anything outdoors, even if they're just walking down to the school hall. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Australia has always had this down in schools. No ozone, you see. Plus danger of gigantism in children from the overcharged radiation. - Mo Kargas

Career Confidential: The Maternity Ward Nurse
"And it’s a disgusting process so it can’t ever be elegant. I mean, maybe if you’re the woman who doesn’t scream and hoot and holler, and people in the room don’t get splashed in the face with blood and amniotic fluid, then it might be elegant. If you don’t shit on yourself — you push like you’re sitting on the toilet, it’s the same muscles. And if you have eaten and you got food in you then it’s gotta come out." - edythe from Bookmarklet
"I had one woman who shat on the baby. There was so much shit coming out the baby just got covered in shit. It’s like, your mother shat on you. Happy birthday. That wasn’t my patient — I brought the scale in to help my friend and I smelled it and I was like I love you girl, but I gotta go." - edythe

Really bad news for the art world :( - Artnet Magazine Closes, But Archives Will Be Preserved
It could have been worse. At least the whole site isn't shutting down. But still, this really sucks. This online magazine has been going for *16 years*. How many online publications can make that boast? Plus, as Paddy Johnson points out, they had some of the clearest writing around about contemporary art. They will be missed :( I hope that most of the writers will find good new publications to work for so that we can follow them there. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill) from Bookmarklet

Karen Huff Klein, bullied bus monitor, to get best vacation ever thanks to Internet | The Right Click - Yahoo! News Canada - http://ca.news.yahoo.com/blogs...
"After seeing a disturbing video of young teens mercilessly bullying a senior citizen on a school bus, thousands across the Internet have rallied together to send her on a vacation. And what a vacation that will be: the crowdsource funding campaign has raised over $130,000 at the time of writing, and it doesn't look like it's slowing down. Update (June 22, 2012): The fundraising campaign has topped $485,000." - edythe from Bookmarklet
"It all started when a YouTube user uploaded this video of Klein being bullied by a group of 12-15 year olds. The video, uploaded June 19, was recorded while Klein was working as a school bus monitor in Greece, New York." - edythe
"In the video, the teens can be heard calling Klein names like "fat" and "ugly," touching her and asking her where she lives so they can steal all of her belongings. In an interview with Rochester YNN, Klein says she was told that her kids should "probably just commit suicide." She states in the interview that her son did in fact take his own life. Klein attempts to stay stoic throughout, but can be seen wiping away tears at several points in the ten-minute video. " - edythe
I heard about that. What those teens don't realize is that they'll probably end up in this poor old lady's shoes in 50 years if they keep it up. (Not that she did anything when she was younger to deserve ending up in such a sorry position.) I hope that with half a million dollars, she can afford not just a vacation but retirement from that hellish job. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)

How to solve impossible problems: Daniel Russell’s awesome Google search techniques
"Daniel Russell stood in front of a crowd of investigative journalists in Boston last week and showed us this picture of a random skyscraper in an unknown city: Russell posed a riddle: What’s the phone number of the office where this picture was snapped? Let that sink in. He wasn’t asking for a phone number for the skyscraper in the picture, which sounds hard enough. He wanted the phone number of the precise office where the photographer was standing when the picture was taken." - edythe from Bookmarklet
"Nothing in that office was even in the photo. Yet in a few minutes, Russell, a research scientist at Google, revealed the answer by paying attention to small details and walking us through a series of smart Google searches.

The Oatmeal v. FunnyJunk, Part V: A Brief Review of Charles Carreon's Complaint | Popehat - http://www.popehat.com/2012...
"Note: our entire series of posts about the Oatmeal v. Funnyjunk situation is now complied under the Oatmeal v. Funnyjunk tag. Background: our previous coverage of the epic and (epically ridiculous) battle between FunnyJunk attorney Charles Carreon and The Oatmeal can be found here: Part I, Part II, Part III, and Part IV. A few days ago I discussed a report — which proved true — that FunnyJunk's attorney Charles Carreon had sued Matthew Inman of The Oatmeal, IndieGoGo, and two charities in a fit of what can only be described as unbalanced, from-Hell's-heart-I-stab-at-thee pique." - edythe from Bookmarklet
"I'm not going to explain all of the problems with [Carreon's lawsuit]. First, that would be a monstrously long post. Second, I'm not going to do anything that might help Charles Carreon, whose behavior in this matter is contemptible. So: you'll have to wait for motion practice to see the defendants' approach to issues of jurisdiction, standing, California's anti-SLAPP statute, and a... more... - edythe
