Me: I've hardly ever seen snakes camping. Her: They probably have trouble finding little sleeping bags.
If they did, would they also pretend to be inchworms? - Anika
LOL, yeah getting into the bags may also be an issue. :) - Ken Morley

There are certain places where it is advisable to shake out your sleeping bag before getting into it, Between the snakes, the spiders and the scorpions it's just good policy. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
They don't have that problem in Australia. With spiders as big as truck engines you can easily see they have taken over your sleeping bag. - Stephan Planken

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

It Took 50 Years, But The University Of Alabama Has Finally Embraced Integration | ThinkProgress
"It’s official: the University of Alabama is on the record supporting racial integration – in the year 2014. Last week Alabama’s Student Senate passed a resolution supporting the complete integration of Greek life at the university. The renewed conversation about race at the historically troubled campus began after a black female student with a 4.3 GPA was denied by all 16 of the school’s sororities. An earlier resolution supporting racial integration had failed by a wide margin." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

Triumph of the Drill: How Big Oil Clings to Billions in Government Giveaways | Mother Jones
"Over the past century, the federal government has pumped more than $470 billion into the oil and gas industry in the form of generous, never-expiring tax breaks. Once intended to jump-start struggling domestic drillers, these incentives have become a tidy bonus for some of the world's most profitable companies." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

Pennsylvania Teen Convicted Of A Crime For Recording Bullies At School | ThinkProgress
"A 15-year old boy with ADHD, comprehension delay disorder, and an anxiety disorder recorded classmates bullying him in school. But instead of reprimanding the tormentors, school officials targeted the boy for wiretapping — and he was later convicted of disorderly conduct by a district judge." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

Congressman Denies Manmade Climate Change, Calls It 'An Agenda-Driven Science' | ThinkProgress
"GAINESVILLE, Florida — Rep. Ted Yoho (R-FL) readily admits he’s “not smart enough” to determine the roots of climate change. He is, however, able to rule out one possible cause: humans. The freshman congressman’s remarks came in an interview with ThinkProgress Monday following a town hall meeting. Asked about the spate of extreme weather, including weeks of punishing drought, that has gripped parts of Florida in recent years, Yoho dismissed the idea that it could be a symptom of manmade climate change. “I think it’s a natural occurrence,” the Tea Party-aligned lawmaker said." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

For Young Women, Sexual Violence Is The New Normal | ThinkProgress - http://thinkprogress.org/health...
For Young Women, Sexual Violence Is The New Normal | ThinkProgress
"Most young women assume that being harassed, assaulted, and abused is simply something that everyone experiences, according to the results from a forthcoming study that will be published in the next issue of the journal Gender & Society. The perception that gender-based violence is normal dissuades most victims from reporting those crimes. In order to arrive at those conclusions, sociologist Heather Hlavka analyzed interviews conducted with 100 young women between the ages of three and seventeen years old. The interview subjects had been identified as potential sexual assault victims through an advocacy group that works to combat child abuse. Hlavka discovered that most of those girls rationalized their everyday experiences of abuse and harassment, simply believing there was nothing unusual about being victimized." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet

Why Darrell Issa's New IRS Scandal Accusation Makes No Sense | Mother Jones - http://www.motherjones.com/politic...
Why Darrell Issa's New IRS Scandal Accusation Makes No Sense | Mother Jones
"It's no secret that Reps. Darrell Issa (R-Calif.) and Elijah Cummings (D-Md.) don't get along. Last month, Issa cut off Cummings' microphone at a hearing on the IRS scandal. Their latest spat came last week, when Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee, sent a letter to Cummings, the senior Democrat on the committee, accusing him of secretly scheming with the IRS to target True the Vote, a conservative organization. But in his argument against Cummings, Issa's grasping at straws." - Steven Perez from Bookmarklet
"The oversight committee has been investigating whether the IRS purposefully targeted conservative nonprofit groups. GOPers have fixated on the investigation, despite the fact that documents have shown the IRS scrutinized progressive groups as well. And last Thursday, House Republicans voted to hold former IRS official Lois Lerner in contempt for refusing to testify about her role in... more... - Steven Perez
"Issa's main gripe is that Cummings sent questions to True the Vote that were similar to questions the IRS put to the organization. He says that although Cummings denied that his staff "might have been involved in putting True the Vote on the radar screen of some of these federal agencies," his communications indicate otherwise. Issa also claims that Cummings didn't adequately inform the committee of his interactions with the IRS." - Steven Perez
"But according to the timeline in Issa's own letter, Cummings didn't trigger the IRS investigation into True the Vote. True the Vote was on the agency's radar screen months before Cummings reached out to the IRS. Additionally, Issa was aware that Cummings was looking into True the Vote. Cummings CCed Issa on the October 2012 letters he sent to the group and posted them on his website.... more... - Steven Perez

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

I just heard about my dad's garden plans. Four 4x4 raised beds completely enclosed in a very tall chicken wire fence structure to keep out deer and raccoons. Wow!
I'm a little surprised this venture passed the internal zoning board otherwise known as my mother. - Katy S
Let me know if this works. Husband will be retired in two weeks and gardening is a joke with all the wildlife. - Janet
I'm jealous! My uncle just put a cyclone fence around his garden. I'd love to be able to keep everything out, especially all the feral cats around here. - Trish R from iPhone
He got the idea from this book http://www.amazon.com/Square-... which shows how to make metal mesh tops for raised beds to keep critters out. He just decided to up the ante. - Katy S

Roast chicken and a big green salad for dinner, because roast chicken on a Sunday is always perfect, and a big green salad because it's 82F and the idea of something really starchy gives me the vapors. Mini portion of ice cream for dessert? Hrm.

Steven Perez
Oppression always has two sides. One the one side stands the master, on the other side stands the slave. On the one side is the arrogant self-elevation of the exploiter, on the other the suffering of his victim. Oppression destroys humanity on both sides. The oppressor acts humanely, the victim is dehumanized. The evil the perpetrator commits robs... - http://silas216.tumblr.com/post...

BBC News - Trees: A personal and national legacy of Evelyn's Sylva
Show all
"If you take a stroll through one of the nation's long-established woodlands, there is a good chance its management was inspired, influenced or even instructed by John Evelyn's Sylva. Widely recognised as the first comprehensive study of UK trees, Sylva, or - to give its full title - A Discourse of Forest Trees, and the Propagation of Timber in his Majesty's Dominions, made its first public appearance in 1662 as a paper submitted to the newly formed Royal Society. Two years later, it was published as the Royal Society's first book and went on to not only shape people's knowledge but the landscape itself. And it was an instant success, proving popular beyond its intended audience of wealthy aristocratic landowners, who were urged by Evelyn to plant trees in order to replenish the nation's depleted timber stock. Four editions were produced during Evelyn's lifetime, and the book is still widely quoted and remains in print and freely available online 350 years after its first publication.... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

This is possible? - ronin
It's not a cross between those. It's a white strawberry and yes that's possible. There are white alpine strawberries. I suppose that's where they got the "pine" from. Pineapples are Bromeliads and strawberries are Rose family. Furthermore, pineapples are monocots and strawberries are dicots.
