So, today I read a short post about a woman being approached by a man, her discomfort with him, and her strong response. Most of the comments were supportive of her standing up for herself but eventually there were negative comments. Some of the negative comments wanted more detail on the interaction to judge if her reaction was proper.
What really struck me was that she described him as creepy and his tone aggressive. Why couldn't people accept that she felt uncomfortable and responded accordingly? - Heather

define "modern". there's more than a little ancient art with blue in it. - Big Joe Silence
I wonder if a person could learn to see a color that they didn't previously recognize. - Heather
Latin does have a word for blue: caerul(e)us, which means blue like the sky (caelum). So presumably people could distinguish blue by Roman times. - John (bird whisperer)
The article mentions that ancient Egyptian art is an exception in using blue pigments and lapis lazuli. Mainland Greek art mainly used reds, browns, and black, at least in pottery. However, Minoan artists did use blue. For example:,, and - John (bird whisperer)

I rushed home last night to make donation beads for the Iditarod / Beads of Courage. In my haste I didn't actually read the instructions. So the beads are wrong (should all match), and the bead holes are wrong (too small), but I'm sending them anyway. If they don't like it they can bite me - how's that for charity - HAH!
Oh, and it looks like I was supposed to do 12 beads ... oops. - Shannon - GlassMistress

that damn narwhal song finally got to me.
Is it in an ad or something? I heard it playing in the background when I left my uncle's earlier and that's the first time I'd heard it in 2-3 years. - NOT THE CRICKET It was made by the same people that made the Badger Song! - Chris Topher
Chris, yeah I'm aware of the weebl's stuff, there is also Kenya & Somolia, and a few others. I just can't figure out why I heard it in the background of my uncle's tv earlier tonight. - NOT THE CRICKET
It was used in a Sprint commercial. - Chris Topher
Oh okay, that makes sense. I thought it was so random to hear it pop up. - NOT THE CRICKET
They also did #SUWGOMH that Louis Gray and WoH loved. - NOT THE CRICKET
I didn't realize that the song is as old as it is. Now that I know, it seems random that it would be used now...but hey, it's awesome! - Chris Topher

Lawmaker Asks If Women Can Swallow Camera... For Gynecological Exams
"During a debate over abortion legislation Monday between Idaho lawmakers, Republican state representative Vito Barbieri asked whether it would be possible for a woman to swallow a small camera, so that doctors might perform a remote gynecological examination (presumably, à la capsule endoscopy). According to the Associated Press, Barbieri's question "came as the House State Affairs Committee heard nearly three hours of testimony on a bill that would ban doctors from prescribing abortion-inducing medication through telemedicine."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
" Dr Julie Madsen was testifying in opposition to the bill when Barbieri asked the question. Madsen replied that would be impossible because swallowed pills do not end up in the vagina. "Fascinating. That makes sense," Barbieri said, amid the crowd's laughter. " - Jessie

"For those who won't attend the 87th Academy Awards and happen to be outside the U.S. on Oscars Sunday, it can be difficult to figure out where to catch the awards show hosted by Neil Patrick Harris. ABC, which has aired Hollywood's biggest awards night every year since 1976, will again kick off its Oscars coverage Sunday at 7 p.m. ET/4 p.m. PT. See more Oscars: 20 Best Director Winners of Past Years (Photos) Meanwhile, international movie fans and people traveling can see Hollywood's biggest night of the year on various TV networks and video sites abroad. Here is THR's guide to where the awards show will air in some of the big international markets. Canada America's neighbors have traditionally had it easy due to blanket coverage and similar time zones. National network CTV, along with its CTV Go and, will once again provide in-depth coverage.

Ok FF, I need a little input. Bead show is in two weeks. I have no partner this time so its full table fee $250. I cannot fill an 8' table but I believe I can make it appear mostly full if I work like a mad woman for the next two weeks. Previous shows earnings have ranged from $300 to $1000 (the high show was my first show, the next closest was
about $600). I just tanked my glass account and savings accounts on truck repairs and sewer fees and the connection costs for the sewer are looming. Given the show's downward slide I'd be tempted to pass on it but with those costs looming and no 'cushion' to speak of I'm not sure what to do. So what do you think? Yea or nay? - Shannon - GlassMistress
If you can cover the cost of the table (and your time manning it), I'd say go for it. Even if you don't sell a ton that day, you'll build up shop inventory and get some exposure. Or do you think the show just won't be well attended? - Prairie & I Know It
If the show has been a steady decline, I'd be tempted to skip. If it's up and down, you've always profited so I'd say it's a fairly safe move. - Heather
questions about the intangibles: how far is the show, how much trouble to get to it? will there be people there that you like? (or hate?) do answers to those questions help? - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
The show is local but not in the best or most traveled part of town which I suspect affects attendance though I never participated in the show in its previous location. Personal expenses to do the show aren't too bad, about 15 miles worth of gas, and lunch which I bring with me. The other participants are a range of personalities there are some I like and some I avoid but once the show starts I'm more focused on my task than them anyway. - Shannon - GlassMistress
I'd ask myself: "if I made nothing; if I didn't sell a single thing, would it still be worth it?" and decide based on that answer. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra

There are no dibs for parking spots - Todd Hoff
Dibs are fair during snowstorms IMO. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
This is a cultural difference, Todd. In areas that get that much snow, there *are* dibs because people have to go to the effort of shoveling the parking places & keeping them usable. However, I only know this because of media stories. It's a big cultural difference and I can imagine strangers from warmer climes are ignorant of it. - Spidra Webster
A town in MA has gotten rid of dibs because people wil leave lawn chairs in them for hours. That's not cool. But if you spend a long time shoveling a spot and go to get your car, someone shouldn't just grab it. - Heather
Hours? Hun we leave them for days, weeks even. Two people have died shoveling snow this year. We're serious about parking spots. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
There's no dibs culture where I live. But there's plenty of digging out snow. - Micah from FFHound!
Cutting of breaks can cause collateral damage. :/ Just bust her windows or something. :P - Alix May

Two people we know who've lived together for a decade announced they are engaged to be married. It'll be in 32 months. This strikes me as a smidge on the long side.
A bit long, but they don't seem to be in a rush anyhow. :) - Heather

I don't see why Juliette isn't being candid about the hexenbiest thing with Nick. She has nothing to be ashamed of and given what Nick's gone through with hexenbiests before, I think he's owed a heads up. Furthermore, given what happened between her and the Captain before, going to him for advice *without* telling Nick is just asking for it.
LOL Any excuse to get Sacha Roiz shirtless.... - Spidra Webster
I will be very upset if they bring back that story mad at that... - Chris Topher
I don't think they will. I think she went to Renard mainly because it was his mother who had helped resolve the problem. Wasn't there another time when she bypassed Nick to resolve an issue she was having? I can't remember. - Corinne L
Can't Nick take her powers by having her bite his lip and getting his blood in her mouth? - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
^this - maʀtha
Does she know all of that? That's before she knew what he was, and I'm not sure they ever told her about that, did they? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
She probably doesn't know all of that, but if Nick doesn't know she's a hexenbeist why would he give her that info? :-/ - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
I'm guessing she doesn't know. And, if she thinks Renard's mother can help change her back, I can see why she'd go to him. - Katy S
I'm not surprised she went to Renard. I'm surprised she went to him without letting Nick know first so that when he (inevitably) sees her coming away from a "secret" meeting with Renard, he doesn't have a bunch of doubts stirred up due to what transpired before under the spell. I really can't think of a good reason not to let Nick know that she thinks one of the spell's side-effects has... more... - Spidra Webster
Well, neither of them are really known for making the best decisions all of the time. ;) - Katy S
Holding back at first made sense to me (she's freaked out, but everyone else is concentrating on finding Monroe and it would be a distraction,) and then her worst nightmare about being transformed came true (she killed someone with powers she can't control,) but after a brief calm down and confessing it to Renard, it makes less sense to me. - Jennifer Dittrich
The question for me is, why didn't Renard suggest she tell Nick? - Katy S
I wondered about that as well - she's obviously freaking out, but even as surprised as he is, I can't think of a good reason why he'd suggest hiding it (unless there's some really nasty hexenbiest secret he doesn't want any Grimm to know.) - Jennifer Dittrich
I figure he's just taking her cue. Well, that and I'm wondering if there's a combo of leftover love spell hangover and being attracted to Juliette as a hexenbiest. - Spidra Webster
Well, he is also just secretive. He's got a lot going on that he's only shared with them in very broad strokes, if at all. - Jennifer Dittrich
Or it's just because the writers have never known what to do with Juliet and she's been the weakest character since Day One. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
^^this may be the most accurate - Corinne L
Because of the spell, I think she's not thinking normally. Both dreams were very uncharacteristic of her (anger and fear beyond what would generally be considered rational). And making good decisions makes the story too smooth. - Heather
Yvonne, apparently the writers have answered the question on why Juliette can't be 'cured' by Nick's blood here: - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Ahhhhhhh. I wondered if it was that, or that she gets it from her interaction with Adalind, who has regained her powers after tasting specifically his blood. Could go a long way to explaining why the manufactured ones are more dangerous. That's one serious weapon taken out of the arsenal. - Jennifer Dittrich
Thanks for following up Zulema! - The Other Yvonne from FFHound!
Okay, she finally comes clean but still does it in a way that builds more anxiety than not. She should have said, "Remember Renard's mom said there could be side-effects? I've been dealing with them for a while but I didn't want to tell you until I was absolutely sure that was what was going on..." "You know I love you so much, right?" Just telegraphs that you think something terrible... more... - Spidra Webster
I've resigned myself to the fact that they will never behave sensibly because the writers want that added drama between them. - Katy S from iPhone

Jon Stewart says he’s leaving The Daily Show · Newswire · The A.V. Club
"Ending one of the most venerable and trusted careers in making a complete mockery of the news, Jon Stewart has announced that he is stepping down as host of The Daily Show. According to sources who were there (some of whom are already passing word along on social media), Stewart let the news slip at the taping of today’s episode, telling those in the audience that he’s retiring. No word yet on when exactly he’s leaving, whether this means he’s ending his time in the anchor chair to focus on being a Serious Movie Director now, or just how much this is Brian Williams’ fault." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
