"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

Some deeper coverage here: http://www.addictinginfo.org/2014... -- "It may seem like satire, but the Washington R______ football team has filed a lawsuit against the five Native Americans who got the U.S. patent office to declare their trademark as “disparaging to Native Americans.” The team... more... - Stephen Mack

Alabama dog gets owner nabbed for alleged drug offenses - CNN.com
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

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

The first time someone told me I looked like Renee Zellweger, I looked so confused they had to tell me it was a compliment. - Heather
Awww, she was cute like a doll with those squinty eyes. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
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 - ill subliminal
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

#nanowrimo Pre-Nov 1 nano novel musing or it's only October 22 which story idea do I like better. The story I want to tell is modern day magic mixed with coming of age in suburbia. One idea is of course our young protagonist trained by modern day wizard. I have a "meets cute" so it starts nicely BUT of course the older wiser mentor
Can sorta kinda take over story from our young hero. Plus of course rules are boring - WarLord
Second idea, the protagonist finds a Grimoire and teaches himself to be wizard. This has advantages of more mistakes and hapless experiments as he works his "painful" way into competence. Plus maybe nice conflicts with wizards and any wizard ruling council as he blunders about. I kinda like "B" better BUT - WarLord
The Grimoire the wizard cook book is essential and how I get that book into his hands is driving me nuts. I'm thinking a book sale maybe a box of books for $10- $20 bucks but again how to make the Grimoire be ignored by all until Dylan finds it??? - WarLord
I like the idea of stumbling on a book. Dylan could be cleaning someone's attic/basement/garage and find it, the person doesn't know what it is so they let him keep it. Could be at a book sale, tucked away behind some other things, maybe planted there for him to find? Box lot at an auction that he sees something he wants and the book is at the bottom with a few others. The cover could be grimy and indistinct, which is why people ignore it. - Heather
^ that one's easy. It looks like an ordinary book to everyone except that kid. He has the "gift" so he can read it. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I thought about "ordinary book" thing... I like cleaning out the trash.... Dylan does good deed adventure ensues. I thought about box of books also containing enclosed book stand that concealed this book... I dunno taking out the trash maybe with a side of ordinary looking book - WarLord
Of course maybe I need to expand my "palette of colors" I mean kid discovers magic, adventures ensue - where have we read that before? If I go with "taking out the trash" literally anyone could discover the book. An adult, not necessarily an orphan or sullen loner etc etc That makes an accidental wizard a very different story - WarLord

Funny how the people who keep saying voting is a waste of time only talk about how all the candidates and parties are the same. They never mention the fact that you're also voting on state, county, and city measures that will totally affect your life in very concrete ways.
That's because they're simple-minded. It's too hard for them to think that much. - Anika
Plus of course the parties and candidates are NOT the same but hey simple minded - WarLord
I assume they've never voted and have no idea that there are things like ballot questions. - Heather
People who "choose" not to vote come up with the most remarkable reasons. And it's SOOOOOO difficult to register and vote (esp. in states with permanent absentee ballots, like California). Thus us aged and, unfortunately, them extremists take over the gummint because we'll take the time to be part of it. - Walt Crawford

This is PERFECT “Why #Gamergaters Piss Me The F*** Off” by @ChrisWarcraft https://medium.com/@ChrisW... Chris Kluwe speaks truth to idiots #ftw
Like this: "... (#Gamergate, for those unaware, is what happened a bit over a month ago, where an angry neckbeard posted demonstrably false allegations about his ex-girlfriend, claiming she slept with video game site reviewers for better scores for her games (again, demonstrably false), and then a whole bunch of other angry neckbeards on the Internet went full Denis Dyack and spitfrothed themselves into national attention by making an array of threats on numerous female game developers, including ones about their death, tried to hide behind a shield of “it’s about journalistic ethics because they said gamers are dead,” and generally proved why the Internet needs to be burned to the ground and the ashes salted. If you’re curious about the details, here’s a good background link.) ..." - WarLord
Or this "... You slopebrowed weaseldicks with zero reading comprehension and even less critical thinking skills who think an article claiming “Gamers are dead” is something bad? Fuck me sideways with a sandblaster. It’s like all you can do is look at this collection of words, scratch yourself uneasily, and then run off to look for grubs. Your reaction (and I am not making this up,... more... - WarLord
This is the best thing I've ever read. AMAZING! - Heather
THIS 1000x. "In fact, #Gamergaters, if your concern really was ethics, the very first thing you would be saying about this whole mess is, “Holy shit, get these fucking misogynistic creeps away from us. Let’s find a different hashtag to assemble under RIGHT FUCKING NOW.” You’d be doing everything in your power to make sure the legitimate cause you’re concerned about wasn’t hijacked or used as a shield by those with no other agenda than to make women and minorities afraid, simply because they can." - rönin

Was just discussing this with co-worker - I'm not allowed to go to Knotts Scary Farm (Halloweened out amusement park here in Oct) or similar Halloween scare the beejezus out of you places.

I'm officially transitioning from baker to pastry chef. It may seem an abstract difference, but I feel gratified and respected, and I like about the fact that there's a tinge of affirmative action in play. It's kinda crap that historically women belonged in the kitchen, but only men were good enough to go pro. Further good news in comments.
For the folks that follow my story, bless you kind souls, I talked to the executive chef (my direct boss) a bit more about my injury. Physical therapy is going well, but it's slow and I'm daunted by the job ahead. The restaurant opening got delayed another week, so that's good for me. Now I will get a week of training alone in the kitchen with EC. I can run through our opening dessert menu, and he'll work with me some on bread (by far my weak spot, I am lord of desserts but bread was always my husband's domain). If I can't keep up with the workload, they will hire an assistant for me... the most qualified other applicant for my job, an older man who specializes in bread. So that'll be incredibly helpful, and I gotta say it feels great that someone wants to hire me this bad. After my demoralizing experience losing my last job, I am very fortunate to have someone pursuing me when the thought of me pursuing a job was a bit overwhelming. Feeling grateful is the best, y'all. - Lo

A layer of newspaper in the bottom of the litter box will make it easier to clean, and until she gets better, you will have to clean it very frequently, so don't put that much litter on top of the newspaper. - April Russo

Mom's version of 'Give the dog a bone': vTake sliced beef bone from freezer and boil it to death. Remove marrow and any meat bits. Pin dog's ears behind her hair with a hair clip (standard poodle with very full ears). Give the do the bone. Demand dog take it out on the porch. Raise voice at confused dog (porch door is closed). Apologize to dog
....and open door. Wait 30 seconds and freak out that dog will get something on porch carpet. Take bone away from dog and spread sheet on floor. Return bone to dog. Go wash dishes used to cook bone. - Shannon - GlassMistress
Why does she remove the marrow and meat? - Anika
