I want an umbrella patterned to look like a tiffany or similar art nouveau lampshade. And chocolate covered Craisins. And a nifty knife block holder to stand on a table. #threethingsiwant

Wow. Good for them, but I can't imagine how difficult the road forward will be for them. I hope this makes a difference. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Sad that death threats and boycotting someone you previously liked is a reaction anyone has, but to have it on the level that Chely Wright faced is horrendous. I just hope that as more artists come out, people will start to accept that it's just how things are and no amount of tantrums will force passionate musicians away. - Heather
There was a Kitten Nursery dinner last night to thank the volunteers and workers for the first year in operation. They sent the speech out by email. The end made me a touch misty eyed.
"Thank you all for your hours spent weighing, feeding, hydrating, and cuddling those precious, screaming little souls. Thank you for loving animals enough to put your hearts on the line for kittens who might not make it through the night. And thank you for rejoicing with us at the sight of your favorites on the daily “adopted animals” list." I look forward to seeing you back here next summer in your fashionable smock, gloved to the wrists, screaming kitten in one hand and food-filled syringe in the other. You are my heroes. - Heather

Library Books Save FSU Student by Standing Up to Bullet -
"I didn't know this at the time, but the Shooter targeted me first. The shot I heard behind me I did not feel, nor did it hit me at all. He was about 5 feet from me, but he hit my books. Books one minute earlier I had checked out of the library, books that should not have stopped the bullet. But they did. I learned this about 3 hours after it happened, I never thought to check my bag."... more... - bentley
They absorb the force that well? It seems weird that you wouldn't feel any impact at all. - Meg VMeg
Maybe he was running at the time and, if he felt it, he assumed it was his bag bouncing on his back? - bentley
I've had adrenaline shocks so intense they felt physical. Maybe he had the adrenalin kick at the same time he was hit. - Heather

Things have been going so well for me for the last year (for the most part) that I keep waiting for disaster to hit. And instead of disaster, I end up with another raise! I am now making double what I was at this time last year.
And what's more, I just landed a one-off side job building a site for the parent company, and they insist on paying me double my asking price. - April Russo

Chris let me decide if we were going to watch the tear-your-heart out season finally of Supernatural. I finally pushed play, cried through Carry On My Wayward Son.....

So back when I was hacked during my non playin time I contacted blizzard and thought everything was fixed.. They reversed my cc charges and unswitches my servers and returned my gold. But I just logged in to toons with no gear!!!
I took a look into the characters, and seen most of them have a ton of stuff still. The only one who didn't was the mage, which I did give some gear to help at least get back into a playable state. You may want to hit up the Timeless isle for some better gear, however. But if any other characters are missing anything, it's probably best to check the AH for something. /)_/) ( . . ) C(")(") Have a great rest of the night! - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
in other words, all of my toons stay naked except the one that gets some ugly mildly ok gear... So basically I got hosed.... Lost almost all of my heirloom gear too. I guess this leaves less ties to that server and the horde at least. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
Ouch, that blows. :( - Heather
I wasn't thrilled with their response to be honest. My other characters have a lot of stuff in the bank, vanity items and old old pre LK gear. But nothing current, and I Raided to get some of the gear that is lost... so much work - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce
I should pay my friends kid a few thousand gold to run Timeless Isle for me a few times on some toons haha. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce

I expect less and less of interest from Pixar at this point. I just don't care about the Toy Story or Cars franchises, and they seem uninterested in making more of the types of films of theirs I genuinely enjoy. - Jennifer Dittrich
I genuinely liked Toy Story 3. Mostly for that one scary sequence, I guess. - Andrew C (✔)
I've never watched any Cars or Planes movies, I thought A Bug's Life was subpar and it was their second flick, and I still think Ratatouille is a mess structurally. - Andrew C (✔)
And see, Ratatouille is one of my favorites. Yeah, it's a mess, but I don't feel like they're trying to SELL ALL THE TOYS AND THINGS every other minute (if anything, it explicitly makes fun of that mentality, in a chef that waters down a good name to sell sketchy frozen food...) - Jennifer Dittrich
Well, I grew up loving the Transformers TV show, so entertainment designed to push the merch isn't gonna bother me too much. - Andrew C (✔)
Any of Mattel properties were always intended as long-form commercials to sell toys. To a certain point, many of the Disney films are also geared that way. For Pixar, that happens, but it was somewhat secondary to the actual films themselves. Of course, merchandise was still a concern, but the creativity behind the films themselves seemed to take more of a front seat before they were folded into Disney proper. Not surprising, just disappointing. - Jennifer Dittrich
Planes wasn't made by Pixar, so they can't take the blame on that. Disney made it independently. But I do think Pixar has generally done better on sequels than most other animated movie producers. - Heather

My goddam absentee ballot never got here. I sent for it early enough, but nope! I don't get to vote in one of the most important elections with ballot questions I'm fucking invested in. I'm ripshit. - Heather
In college I loved getting absentee ballots, I had plenty of time to look up candidates and see what the ballot questions were really about. But screw me getting to vote in a midterm. It's just a young(ish) person who actually wants to vote in an election that gets abysmal turn out. Whoopdyfuckingdo. - Heather
Does your county allow for provisional ballots? If you're able to travel tomorrow, you might still be able to vote, depending on how they handle that. - Jennifer Dittrich
It's about an hour home, so I don't think it's really feasible. :( - Heather
Yes, you can still vote provisionally and I think you can do it at any polling place. However, to be sure DO call your Registrar of Voters. What state/county are you in? - Spidra Webster
Also, if you call the campaign headquarters of the party you're voting most for, I'm pretty sure they'd be happy to arrange a ride to the polls if you need it. - Spidra Webster
They never got my absentee request. - Heather

"R_______ clear to sue Native Americans -- for now" [MSNBC] -
"R_______ clear to sue Native Americans -- for now" [MSNBC]
From the November 1st article by Drew Katchan: "The long-simmering controversy over the Washington R_______ team name continued on Friday when a federal judge decided the NFL franchise could continue suing five Native Americans, according to the Associated Press. Yes, you read that right: For now, the R________ – whose name everyone from President Obama to Sen. John McCain call offensive – can move forward with a suit against a group of Native Americans who take umbrage with the term. The group, led by social worker Amanda Blackhorse, filed a petition back in 2006 against the name, and the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office responded this June, ruling that six R_______ trademark registrations should be canceled. Once the USPTO gave its ruling, the team went after the five individuals in court." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet

Alabama dog gets owner nabbed for alleged drug offenses - -
Alabama dog gets owner nabbed for alleged drug offenses -
Show all
"A pooch in Alabama got its owner busted for alleged drug offenses -- all with a gleeful wag of its tail. Edward Melvin Henderson was arrested in Prattville, Alabama, and faces a variety of charges. The dog, Bo, was caught up in the incident when police executed a drug search warrant this week at the Prattville home of suspect Edward Melvin Henderson. Henderson took off and dashed toward a wooded area at the back of his home, the Prattville Police Department said in a statement. Bo, a mix of a pit bull and husky, ran after Henderson after investigators told the dog to "go get him." Authorities briefly lost sight of them and were close to giving up. But an excited Bo had found his owner hiding in tall grass, and was wagging his tail. Authorities saw the tail and arrested Henderson." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

My friend Quinn told me about a folder on her computer called, “The Ones We’ve Lost.” They are the letters she’s gotten from young girls who dream of being game developers, but are terrified of the environment they see.

From the "Silly things that make me mad" file...when someone insists that the "push to walk" button does nothing.
Given traffic flow is often considered more important than pedestrian convenience, I wouldn't be surprised if the difference between pressing the button or not being negligible in many cases. - Heisenberg
Plus you can catch Ebola. ;) - Heisenberg
I'm sure in some places the buttons don't work, but some places isn't the same as everywhere. - Heather
I agree, some places isn't the same as everywhere. Also, I didn't say they don't work, I said the effect might be minimal, e.g. if you press the button, you still have to wait 2 minutes, but you don't have to wait 3 minutes. - Heisenberg
Plus, you're still getting Ebola. - Heisenberg

Watch This Woman Receive 100 Catcalls While Walking Around For A Day
"Ten hours of walking around New York City, 100 catcalls and one huge problem. Rob Bliss of Rob Bliss Creative makes viral videos for a living and decided to use his craft to shine a light on street harassment, a pervasive issue affecting females around the world. Partnering with actress Shoshana B. Roberts and Hollaback, a nonprofit movement launched by activists to end street harassment, Bliss packaged his production as a PSA and offers viewers a different perspective on the problem. "I felt like no one had ever really shown what it's like to experience street harassment, more or less," Bliss told The Huffington Post. "No one has -- from a third-party perspective, on the outside looking in -- been able to step back and look at it and watch it happen in front of them." His intent, he said, was to offer an "unbiased" look at what many women experience on a daily basis. "No messaging. No judgement. Let people view it as it is and talk about," he added. During filming, Bliss attached a... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

But if you have that kind of squinty eye - I've got them - you hear things throughout your life like "ooh, you've got thieves eyes!", so I can understand the desire to change. I wouldn't spend the money because I've got other things to do with it, but I can see why she did. - ellbeecee
What was wrong with her face? I thought she was cute. - Eric - Regulate
I know it's coming from a good place, but you guys just called her "cute", not beautiful. It's a small distinction but when "cute" is all you hear it gets old. - Heather
It's how she feels that really matters but I just wish she could have changed her looks to something less ubiquitous. I'm sure her looks had a large impact on the success of Bridget Jones and that following it directors/producers thought "we want someone cute/quirky like her!" and there was only her around. Now, if they want someone like her they're going to have a load of alternatives.... more... - Mark H
