Mary Carmen
Alright? All right? What is the usage/grammar rule with this one? And yeah, I know, I can google it.
Oxford Dictionary: "Similar ‘merged’ words such as altogether and already have been accepted in standard English for a very long time, so there is no logical reason to object to the one-word form alright. Nevertheless, many people dislike it and regard it as incorrect, so it’s best to avoid using alright in formal writing. Write it as two separate words instead." - Mary Carmen
I don't personally ever use it (I always write "all right"), but as a descriptivist, I can't object. I can see a slight difference in meaning between these two sentences: 1) The math was all right. 2) The math was alright. Sentence 1 means to me that you checked every line and the arithmetic was 100% correct in every instance. Sentence 2 could mean that, or it could mean that you enjoyed the math portion of the class just fine. - Stephen Mack
All right. For same reason as SMack above, 'alright' drives me up a wall. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
'Alright' just looks alwrong. - Betsy
But at one point, already and altogether looked alwrong too. (Nice word, that, Betsy. Alwrong. Alwrong. I'm going to start using it!) - Stephen Mack
I use aight. - NOT THE CRICKET
I use both, but for different reasons and meanings. - Hookuh Tinypants
Whenever I see "all right" I think "half left". I do not do this when I see "alright". I prefer the two word descriptive. I also dislike contractions. There is something deep seated in my sick brain for this realization. - Janet
When I see "alright," I think, "this person can't even spell, and thus anything else from them has no credibility." - Glen Campbell from iPhone
"Alwrong" sounds like something out of Tolkien-- or Thor: The Alwrong. (Yeah, I just watched the latest Thor movie.) - Betsy
Melly
Emily: I no want brush my teeth, I no want go to bed, I no want go to sleep, ever again.
She's asleep in bed with her teeth brushed ;o) - Melly
Sleep is unproductive and a waste of time. - Glen Campbell
Mary B: #TeamMonique
K, @LAminerals How do you pick safe ones? Cyanide doesn't change look. Gonna take 5% chance of dropping dead from random m&m? #YesAllWomen
Just curious - do women just randomly choose men? Or only choose based on looks? - Glen Campbell
I always chose based on conversations. The smarter they were, and the more we had in common, the better they looked. Every time I let looks be a factor, bad things happened, from coercion to rejection. Also most of the pretty ones weren't too bright. - Mary B: #TeamMonique from iPhone
It helped if a man showed interest in me, too. I saw no point in wasting time on peeps who didn't want anything to do with me. - Mary B: #TeamMonique from iPhone
Therefore, conversation is a huge way of knowing whether someone's intentions are honorable. The bad apples make themselves known immediately. - Mary B: #TeamMonique from iPhone

Hey I have a FOOD question.: Does anybody no: The open face sandwich made with bread topped with slices of beef built around a scoop of potatoes, all topped with beef gravy - I call it a "Hot Beef Sandwich" several restaurants in town call it "Commercial Sandwich". What do you call it in your part of the world? And yes I am hungry now....
I call it "What? That's a thing? WHERE CAN I GET ONE?" - Slippy: Rebooting
My mom always called it a hot beef sandwich (or turkey, if you do the same thing with it.) In both cases, she'd usually chop the meat up small and mashed or smashed potato was used only if there was still some leftover from whatever meal the meat was a part of. - Jennifer Dittrich
Wait, hang on. I just realised something. In times of yore, before we had such things as crockery in Merry Olde Englande, the roast beef, potatoes and gravy were served on a "trencher" (aka bread). So, I guess, over here, this "commercial sandwich" of yours is called "Dinner" :-D - Slippy: Rebooting
It's called an "Open Face Sandwich" or "Open-Faced Sandwich" here. - Friar Will
I've never heard of that but I can't believe a potato sandwich isn't a staple of my diet. - joey
Joey - it's a pretty awesome way to deal with the leftovers from the roasted Tofurky set (or TJ's vegan roast.) Or Field Roast. - Jennifer Dittrich
Yeah the Hot Turkey version is best after Thanksgiving use of leftovers Of course smashed potatoes and gravy #ftw - WarLord
Huh, some people call it a "Beef Manhattan" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... - Meg VMeg
Hot roast beef with gravy open faced sandwich. - Janet
A "beef manhattan" sounds like a really bad cocktail. - Glen Campbell
Or a euphemism. - Slippy: Rebooting
Beef manhattan is what it was called at our school's cafeteria when I was a kid. - Katy S

If only as many people were outraged back when the PATRIOT Act and the AUMF were passed and back when we started a war on false pretenses. Better late than never, I guess. Although the opportunists can suck it.
Some of us were pretty outraged at the USA PATRIOT Act. And the pretenses, while since proven false, were heavily supported at the time (i.e., Iraq went to great lengths to convince people that they had weapons of mass destruction). - Glen Campbell
Sure, but /that was being taken care of by ongoing inspections/. Which the war pre-empted. - Andrew C (✔)
I think people wanted to believe what they wanted to believe. Clearly, not everyone was convinced http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... It was one of the major reasons why I supported Obama over Clinton in the 2008 primary. - Victor Ganata

RT @huffingtonpost: Google admits it's overwhelmingly white and male, has a diversity problem  http://huff.to/1kOgZjT http://t.co/QfXMmh95P1
I thought the most interesting piece of information was left out. They mention their numbers of employees, and point to low numbers of CS graduates in the underrepresented groups... but don't give any numbers on how many of those people apply vs. how many were hired. Maybe the percentages are similar - maybe they're not. Maybe white guys are just more likely to get an interview, and then more likely to get hired. Maybe not - there's no way to verify. (At least from what I saw of their post yesterday.) - Jennifer Dittrich
When I was at Yahoo!, we actually hired a greater percentage of female vs. male application. However, females generally made up less than 2% of the applicant pool, so the end result was not really noticeable. We went to great lengths to try to recruit women and minorities, and still got very, very few resumes. - Glen Campbell

It's kind of funny how Littlefinger/Sansa works kind of like Snape/Harry Potter if Snape had a creepy and possibly sexual interest in Harry Potter.

YES, dammit. RT @skeskali Know what would be awesome? If employers made it possible to donate sick days to people who have run out of them.
MFPOW did that. It started out fairly informally, but turned into a formal "hours of sick leave" donation pool that could be used as needed by our coworkers. - WebGoddess
The U of Iowa does that. My former employer did that. My current one does not. - laura x
We're allowed to do that as well (and not just sick days) as long as they're within the state employees system. You can either donate directly, or to a pool of days that people can tap into if they have an extended illness. - Jennifer Dittrich
MPOW has a leave donation request program, which is nice. It's not available to contractors, though, but hopefully I won't find myself in need of its help. - Zamms
My coworkers wanted to donate sick leave to me because I had to use up all of mine for maternity leave and thus had nothing when I got back to work and babyx got sick. Bleah. - laura x
MPOW won't allow it at all, for any type of leave. Between my own compromised system and caring for my mother, who's slowly dying of leukemia, I have zero leave. I have coworkers with hundreds of hours of time who've asked HR if they can give them to me - and I love them for that. But HR said flat out, No. - Ruth Kneale
Ours will, but you have to donate into the pool to draw from it, and then it has to be for a major illness and there's a committee that approves/denies requests. - ellbeecee
Ours is similar to what LBC has--which always strikes me as a little odd because often you can't prepare for it and how much are supposed to donate isn't clear. - Hedgehog
That idea is the second most awesome thing next to unlimited sick leave. - Deborah Fitchett
We could do that when I worked for the State of Texas (ca. 1988-1996) - Glen Campbell
We started having this but when I read the finer print, I found out the recipient had to be facing financial hardship - you couldn't just give it to anyone. - Laura Norvig
You guys are incredibly fortunate to work in places that allow this, and for those who have donated, you're also incredibly generous to help out your colleagues. <3 - Cecily
We did that at State of MD. You only had to donate a day or so to be part of the Leave Bank. Often a coworker in our own dept would have a need for more leave and we'd each designate a day or two to her. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

Reading a very interesting article on statins, and then I get to this:
"Walk barefoot to ground yourself to the earth. Lack of grounding has a lot to do with the rise of modern diseases as it affects inflammatory processes in your body. Grounding thins your blood, making it less viscous. Virtually every aspect of cardiovascular disease has been correlated with elevated blood viscosity." - LB's 10:19pm Name Change from Android
"When you ground to the earth, your zeta potential quickly rises, which means your red blood cells have more charge on their surface, which forces them apart from each other. This action causes your blood to thin and flow easier. By repelling each other, your red blood cells are also less inclined to stick together and form a clot." - LB's 10:19pm Name Change from Android
Um... ok.... - LB's 10:19pm Name Change from Android

I've heard a lot about grounding in the last couple of years, including from a doctor I respect. According to him there is a lot that makes intuitive sense to him about the procedure, based on the other things he knows about biological systems. But there have been no clinical trials yet. - lris

Speaking of blood viscosity, for a while my mom was taking daily doses of some Chinese medicine or herbal supplement or something to thin the blood... and it wasn't even like any doctor, western nor traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) told her to. Then one day she got a nose bleed that wouldn't stop and she had to see a doctor for help (Western doc), and after that she quit with the blood-thinning stuff. - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, you probably don't want to screw around with blood thinning too much. That's how people get spontaneous brain hemorrhages. - Victor Ganata
Didn't the FDA publish a warning on Aspirin for that reason? - Eric
Yeah, it's one of the reasons why I'm not a fan of primary prevention of stroke/heart attack with aspirin, even baby aspirin. (Secondary prevention is totally different matter, though.) Once your platelets are deactivated, you gotta wait until your bone marrow makes new ones. - Victor Ganata
Even though you can get way worse bleeds with warfarin, you can actually reverse warfarin's effects easier than you can reverse aspirin's effects. The antidote to warfarin is vitamin K, but aspirin has no antidote and you'd need a platelet transfusion. - Victor Ganata
That "science" article on "grounding" is hilarious. And the free, natural, direct current electrons flowing up from the comment section are making it even funnier :) - Eivind

Oh, you were researching "statins". I could have sworn that said "stains", and I was wondering what the heck "grounding" had to do with stains (other than the fact that you'd pick up mud on your feet, then get it all over your carpets, so you might cause stains) - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Hopefully just temporary fawn day-care :) - Jennifer Dittrich
The mother will leave the fawn in a safe place and go off to graze. The fawn's coloration usually protects it; in this case, the front porch provides shelter on three sides making it unlikely that anyone would find it (unless a stupid hooman sticks his head out the front door).
