I'm going to be prepping surgical tool packs for the spay/neuter clinic. So boo to not having animal interaction, but yay for doing SOMETHING. Also, it might fit really nicely with doing the Kitten ICU (if May ever gets here!). - Heather, 30k Camper

"Michael Fishbach narrates his encounter with a young humpback whale entangled in local fishing nets. While this video is long, it's well worth your time. Skip ahead to :48 seconds for the start of the action and 5:38 for the climax.

Professor suspended for Game Of Thrones shirt that threatened community college kingdom * Newswire * The A.V. Club -
Professor suspended for Game Of Thrones shirt that threatened community college kingdom * Newswire * The A.V. Club
"Confirming yet again that the halls of academia are no place for interpreting things, a New Jersey professor was suspended over a Game Of Thrones T-shirt whose tagline--the Daenerys Targaryen quote, "I Will Take What Is Mine With Fire & Blood"--was interpreted by his colleague as a threat. The incident came about after Francis Schmidt, who teaches art and animation at Bergen Community College, posted a photo of his daughter doing a yoga pose in the shirt to his Google+ account, where it was seen by the people who actually use Google+, such as easily riled deans. Said dean reportedly called for an emergency meeting, concerned that this small, unsettlingly agile girl in a T-shirt was Schmidt's way of announcing his intention to claim all the spoils a New Jersey community college has to offer, by force if necessary." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
I mean, it would be maybe something if he wore it to work, but... - Heather, 30k Camper
Geez. - Stephen Mack
Reminds me of the Inigo Montoya t-shirt ona plane incident. - Joe - Systems Analyst
What the hell is going on with our schools that teachers and administrators feel threatened by a (1) finger gun (2) a GOT t-shirt on a little girl and (3) a science project with the word "gun" in it? - Spidra Webster
I mean, it's not as if he told the dean that he acquired his daughter's shirt by paying the iron price. - Stephen Mack
"where it was seen by the people who actually use Google+, such as easily riled deans." *snerk* - holly #ravingfangirl
I've never seen Game of Thrones, but I would hope that grown-assed adults would assume a child in a t-shirt on a personal site is not a veiled threat to work colleagues. And I'm sure the psychiatrist is going to be thrilled with having to waste their time with a stupid evaluation. - Anika - "But revenge appears to be a theme in both the show and Schmidt's life -- he believes the suspension was retaliation for a grievance he had filed earlier after he was denied a sabbatical without explanation about two months before the incident. "This was payback because I filed a grievance," he said."" - Andrew C (✔)
*sigh* Oh FFS. - ronin
IOW, any excuse for those with power to take offence is a good one. same as it ever was. - Big Joe Silence
"Schmidt was suspended without pay and forced to undergo a psychiatric evaluation before being reinstated with a list of other restrictions, he said, such as not wearing clothing with questionable statements and not making disparaging statements about the college. " It would be really hard not to say something about a college with administrators that bone stupid. - Spidra Webster
This is still better than the sheriff's deputy who pulled out his gun because a barking dog "made him fear for his life" (and he accidentally shot himself.) - Victor Ganata from iPhone
then he was kicked in the balls repeatedly and required to never mention it. - Big Joe Silence
" and not making disparaging statements about the college" - if it were me, I'd be making factual statements about the college's handling of this incident and the dean in particular from now until eternity. - Andrew C (✔)
Imagine this on a shirt: "Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; children will rebel against their parents and have them put to death." - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

My account has been hacked and they change 4 of my characters realms I don't know how to fix this.
Do you have your account back yet? If you do, you can petition to have your characters restored to their correct realms. If you don't have your account back yet, first step is to contact Blizzard and get that shit secured and returned to you ASAP. - Hookuh Tinypants
Highly recommend downloading the mobile authenticator and attaching it to your account. - Hookuh Tinypants
Already done as well as changing password - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce from Android
Part of my problem is I do not have access to apc with internet right now. Part of the reason my account was inactive... - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce from Android
They used PayPal..... - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce from Android
They used your PayPal account? Meaning, they hacked your PayPal account as well? Or were they able to attach their PayPal account to your Blizzard account? - Hookuh Tinypants
It's total bullshit that they got rid of the phone support, it was the most responsive. I hope you can get something out of them quickly. - Heather, 30k Camper
It was already attached and because I forgot to keep blizzard in my rotation they had the same password. I think everything is ok. Authenticator attached. Passwords changed account rolled back and charges canceled. - Joe "The Anvil" Pierce from Android
Trick for cutting cherry tomatoes
Never would've thought of that. Of course, with my luck, I'd just push them all out. - Anika
Yeah I don't know if any of my knives are sharp enough to slice em all - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Interesting. I never thought of that. - John (bird whisperer)
Ditto john, although i'm rarely cutting that many tomatoes - Dough Balls
Weirdly, I'm too lazy to ever try this. I still just cut my bitty tomatoes one at a time. :) I also don't think I've ever cut more than a dozen cherry tomatoes at any one time. - Hookuh Tinypants
I've made salads & casseroles that used hella lil tomatoes, & I have no knife skills so prep often pisses me off, lol. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
It'd be fun to show off when you're helping fix a family meal. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Hell yes. I'm all about party tricks. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
I don't think my knives have ever been sharp enough to do that. I keep forgetting to catch the knife sharpening guy at the farmer's market. - Betsy
Some hardware stored have a person that does sharpening. The ACE Chris's dad works at has an outside guy that comes in weekly to pick up and drop off. - Heather, 30k Camper

Prominent Republican: Women Need To Be Paid Less So They Can Find Husbands | ThinkProgress -
Prominent Republican: Women Need To Be Paid Less So They Can Find Husbands | ThinkProgress
"In an op-ed published by the Christian Post, Phyllis Schlafly — the founder of the Eagle Forum — maintained that increasing the pay gap will help women find suitable husbands: 'Another fact is the influence of hypergamy, which means that women typically choose a mate (husband or boyfriend) who earns more than she does. Men don’t have the same preference for a higher-earning mate. While women prefer to HAVE a higher-earning partner, men generally prefer to BE the higher-earning partner in a relationship. This simple but profound difference between the sexes has powerful consequences for the so-called pay gap. Suppose the pay gap between men and women were magically eliminated. If that happened, simple arithmetic suggests that half of women would be unable to find what they regard as a suitable mate. Obviously, I’m not saying women won’t date or marry a lower-earning men, only that they probably prefer not to. If a higher-earning man is not available, many women are more likely not to... more... - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

One the one hand they define marriage as between one man and one woman but then attach the caviet "As long as the bank balance is right" - Johnny from iPhone
If she is right, then the only logical solution is to not cut her pay, but allow her to have 2 husbands. ;-) - April Russo
the only logical solution for women payed more than men is to marry other women with a better income, oh NO WAIT - 無家可歸82 from FFHound(roid)!

My erstwhile spouse has a double Bachelor's degree, and a Master's Degree. She has been working for the same company for 16 years now. Her current income in 2014 dollars is one half of my income 16 years ago (in 1998 dollars.) I was in a riskier, more outwardly stressful career, but there's no way I was 2 or 3 times more valuable to my employer than she is to hers. The only upside is... more... - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

A Brutal Allergy Season Is Ahead. Blame the Polar Vortex. | Mother Jones -
A Brutal Allergy Season Is Ahead. Blame the Polar Vortex. | Mother Jones
"One week ago, I purchased the first asthma inhaler I've owned since the 8th grade. I'd shown up at my doctor's office short of breath, and a lung function test promptly revealed that I was inhaling about one-fifth as much air as a healthy 24-year-old should be. "We're expecting a lot of cases like you," my doctor told me as he wrote my prescription. "It's going to be a hell of a pollen season." And for that, you can blame the polar vortex—the extreme cold system that repeatedly hovered over much of the United States this year—along with the rest of this winter's brutal weather. Those cold snaps helped spawn a spring allergy season so intense that it already has its own headline-ready nickname: the "pollen vortex."" - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

Pushing "90" on the microwave is 33% more efficient (fewer button presses) than "1:30".
My dad will pick a number and press it 2-3 times, then stop the microwave before it's done. Because. Reasons. - Heather, 30k Camper
Huh. On ours, you'd hit 1, then 30sec--two buttons total. No Time, no Start, no nothing. - Walt Crawford
Pushing 99 is even more efficient than 90, and the extra 9 seconds will make very little difference, in most cases. - April Russo

Saw my mom on Tues. She mentioned that she had been thinking about throwing a birthday party for me but gave up on the idea. I knew it wasn't going to happen, but talking about it made me a little sad.
:( At least she was thinking of you and your birthday? - Spidra Webster
I haven't had a birthday party in a long time, I'm usually not even into them, so it's not that big a deal. But my mom was the one who originally brought up having a party for me after my cousin had a big 3-0 bash last summer. - Heather, 30k Camper
Last party my parents threw for my bday was when I was 7. My whole class was invited. Maybe 2 people showed up. I think both my parents and I gave up after that. Just after college I finally started holding parties for myself because I knew no one would ever throw me a surprise party (not because I'd expressed loathing them or anything like that). I'm sorry your mom gave up on the idea... more... - Spidra Webster

Birthdays can suck. Best advice I can give is to make it a day of treating yourself. Spa day? Or go somewhere you've wanted to explore but haven't yet? Then do what I did and post a blow by blow here so the awesome ffeed world can keep you company. P.S. my thirties turned out to be way better than my twenties, btw. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat from Android

Unsolicited advice: celebrate in a way that makes you happiest. If it's a long walk or manicure or writing, great! Eating an entire cake by yourself, okay! Relaxing with a good book or a movie marathon, rock on! Honor your flow. And do not fear your thirties. Or your forties, for that matter.

I feel missing, alone, isolated, and generally cut off today. I am the only person responsible for this being my problem. However, I felt the need to say something, since doing so is better than continuing to be quiet and appearing to have disappeared. Thus, I need to shut up, go away, throw away whatever I am feeling (because it is all in my head), and just deal with it like a normal, capable person. - Julian
hey there, Julian. I'm glad you said something - maʀtha
If you felt a need to just type out stream of consciousness brain-clearing posts, I'd bet no one here would be bothered at all. Whatever helps you! And, {hugs} - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

How Privileged Are You? - Buzzfeed - Oh, Buzzfeed *shakes head sadly*
OK, to be fair, it did make me think about just how fluid sexuality is—like it's not just cis/trans or heterosexual/LGBT. You don't need to actual identify with a certain orientation to be called slurs. You can be shamed for sexual practices (or lack of sexual practices) that don't necessarily conform/are limited to categorical orientations. - Victor Ganata
I got 40, mostly based on gender or sexuality. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Buzzfeed says I'm not privileged at all, which I find pretty ridiculous. Of course I'm privileged. - Laura
I'm "quite privileged" apparently. Whatever that means. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
LOL at trying to throw shade at Buzzfeed. It's *Buzzfeed*. - Derrick
It says I am not privileged, but white male here. - Friar Will
Yeah, I know it's Buzzfeed but I still totally thought "Surely you can't be serious" when I saw someone had posted this on FB :D - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I hear what you're saying, Derrick, but I've heard Bullfeed mentioned as a Source of Serious Modern Journalism (along with HuffPuff), which makes me cringe. That test: ditto. (My score is, of course, in the vast "privileged" range, since that clearly starts somewhere at or below 50 out of 100--that is, I scored 50. Yes, I consider myself reasonably privileged.) - Walt Crawford
I wonder if they weigh all those questions equally. I think some forms of privilege are probably more significant than others. - John (bird whisperer)
I think the idea of quantifying privilege is prima facie ridiculous, but I guess we live in the age of the quantified self. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
I found myself not sure of some of my answers. Sometimes I've felt uncomfortable about who I am, but I think that was me facing my privilege rather than not having it. My freshman year of college almost all my friends were Asian, so I was "the white girl" and left out of things, but I wouldn't say that was lack of privilege at all. - Heather, 30k Camper
I didn't bother because, well, I'm aware of whatever privilege I might have, but am also painfully aware of what that might look like when I'm in the elevator or people who look different from me pass up that open seat on the bus because...well, I'm sure it's not privilege. And also, I just really hate Buzzfeed. - Derrick
I'm increasingly with you (Derrick) on that last count, which is why I ignored this the first five times I saw it. - Walt Crawford
Frozen Merch Is Sold Out Everywhere and Parents Are Losing Their Shit -
Frozen Merch Is Sold Out Everywhere and Parents Are Losing Their Shit
"It has become impossible to get any official merchandise from Disney's animated megahit Frozen—toys and clothing are sold out everywhere, even after a recent, large-scale restocking effort. Enterprising individuals are charging up to $1,000 for Frozen items on eBay, which has driven parents completely insane. Frustrated moms are currently freaking out all over Disney's Facebook page, posting angry messages in the middle of the night." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Currently, Disney has a rule set that no more than two of each Frozen item can be purchased at a time, in an effort to cut down on the scalping that is currently happening online. But the purchasing cap doesn't really help when there aren't any items to buy in stores, which leaves eBay and independent Amazon sellers left as the only options if you absolutely must get your hands on some... more... - Jessie
"Your best chance at getting some Frozen merch at its original retail price is at various stores at the actual Disney World Resort. But even that's dicey. It's mostly T-shirts and they don't seem to have the singing Elsa with the light-up hands that everyone is going bonkers for. Going to Disney World for a Frozen experience actually presents its own set of problems. Currently, the wait... more... - Jessie
Huh. I didn't think it was THAT good. Same w/the Let It Go song. When I finally heard it while watching the movie it didn't stand out to me as something that hype-worthy. - ronin
There's been so much EVERYTHING about Frozen, that all I can do is just kind of reject it until the hype dies down. No way it could live up to the expectation on the merit of it's high visibility right now. - Derrick
Dominic and I went to see it and we both thought it was cute, but that's about it. I liked it but I really don't understand the craziness over this movie. - Jessie
Yeah, I don't...I just...don't get it. I don't. It wasn't bad, but it wasn't anything more than decent either. And I sure as shit wouldn't scream at Disney about being unable to buy merchandise. Sometimes it's healthy for a kid to want something and *not* get it. - Hookuh Tinypants
Also, I'm a little o.O at people who give their kids stuff like this as "Easter gifts". Is this a thing? Is Easter like a second Christmas now? I'm seriously confused. I think we got colored eggs and candy and little plastic tchotchkes. And we were more than happy with that. - Jessie

Given how many people put unlicensed Disney stuff up on DeviantArt and Etsy, I'd think the more adventurous ones would be trying to make $$ by filling the void right now. - Spidra Webster

Admittedly I've never been much into "Official" merch, so this is far beyond my scope of understanding. But I really liked Frozen and I think it's different in a good way from what usually comes out of Disney. I can see how children would be drawn to the somewhat non-traditional main characters and parents would want to encourage that. - Heather, 30k Camper

The #McCutcheon decision is yet another reason why voting for Nader was phenomenally stupid. Gore's loss led to Roberts and Alito on SCOTUS.
You're assuming that 100% of the people who voted for Nader would have voted for Gore had Nader not run. That's a big assumption. Some are so disaffected they're not voting anything but independent. Furthermore, I don't believe Nader is the reason why Gore didn't win - election fraud was. - Spidra Webster
But, yeah, that's why who's in power matters so much. And if Gore had fought harder and succeeded in getting justice, he would have been in office when 9/11 happened. There are no guarantees but if he'd seized the goodwill the rest of the world had towards the US after that, and that Bush'd be a very very different world today. - Spidra Webster
IMO the Nader effect helped make Florida's election fraud viable. - Andrew C (✔)
