HAHAHA This was me until last year. So glad they sleep in now. - Anika
My kids rarely wake before 7am, but I'm a 2am - 10am sleeper, so that's still early for me ;) - Melly
Yeah. For us, we had to wake up early on school days in order to get the kids up & moving (which was a nigh impossible task with Thing 2, who needed to be awakened at least 6 times before he'd actually get out of bed on a school morning). Then, on weekends, Thing 2 would be up around 5 a.m., bouncing off the walls, every freakin' time. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Doctors in India Remove 232 Teeth From Mouth Of Teenage Boy | IFLScience
"Dhiware diagnosed Gavai with complex composite odontoma, which is when enamel and dentin grow abnormally, resulting in an excessive number of tooth-like structures. The condition is rare and the teeth are essentially benign tumors. Over the course of the seven-hour-long surgery, Dhiware, another surgeon, and two assistants extracted 232 of the teeth. Dhiware told BBC that the structure couldn’t be cut out using traditional methods. This forced the to break it into pieces using a hammer and chisel, which is an outdated method that is now very rarely employed. After the odontoma was cracked, the team removed hundreds of small teeth ranging in size from a mustard seed to a marble. The dentists also removed the molar that was affected by the condition, though it was removed with traditional methods." - rönin from Bookmarklet

I'm disgusted with Israel's government, and with Hamas. I'm appalled and ashamed by what I've heard of the behavior of Israeli settlers. And by the behavior of Palestinians who idolize people who use bombs against other humans. It's a horrid situation full of wrongs everywhere you look. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!

After 3 cans of hornet spray and uprooting of 2 low shrubbery, that underground hornet nest is toast. Hopefully. Pray no zombie hornets.
Fortunately the spray does a good job of disorienting, if not outright killing, them. While I was ripping away the shrubs I could hear the ground buzzing which was freaky. - rönin

BBC News - China: Giant yellow rubber duck swept away in flood
"A giant yellow rubber duck floating on Nanming River in China's south-west Guizhou Province has reportedly been swept away by floodwaters just months after it exploded on display in Taiwan. The 18m (59ft) sculpture by Dutch artist Florentijn Hofman disappeared around 19:00 local time on Wednesday, after the city saw days of heavy rainfall, the Taiwan-based Want China Times reports. Even though the duck weighs 1 tonne, and was sitting on a 10 tonne metal platform lashed to the riverbed with steel wires, it was easily dislodged by the storm. "The duck flopped over and was flushed away really quickly by the torrential flood," exhibition co-ordinator Yan Jianxin tells the Wall Street Journal's China Real Time blog. "It disappeared right in front of me."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Colin Nederkoorn paid for Verizon FiOS, but his Netflix still sucked. So he decided to do something about it. | The Verge - http://www.theverge.com/2014...
"Colin Nederkoorn, a startup CEO living in New York City, was unhappy with his Netflix service. He pays Verizon for FiOS service that promises 75Mbps down. But when he tried to stream video, it was a miserable experience, with buffering and low-definition pictures. So Nederkoorn decided to measure the speed of his connection. What he found was that when he was streaming Netflix he was getting speeds of just 375kbps, or 0.5 percent of what he was paying Verizon for. To try to fix the problem, Nederkoorn began using a virtual private network, or VPN, which could essentially act as a virtual ISP that would route the traffic he requested from Netflix through a different set of connections than the ones being used when he went through Verizon. The results were pretty astounding: his speed increased to 3,000kbps and Netflix video streamed without buffering, and in much higher quality." - Me from Bookmarklet
"Nederkoorn says he understands that the poor-quality Netflix stream he was getting over Verizon was as much about a business dispute between two companies as it was about Verizon's infrastructure. "I use Valve's service, Steam, to buy computer games. When I test the speed on that, I can download several-gigabyte games at very near the optimum speed I was promised with my subscription."... more... - Me
They had a pretty interesting article in ArsTechnica a few months back about using VPN for just this purpose. I'm guessing you'll see a spike in people subscribing to these services. - Jennifer Dittrich

The Weird, Scary and Ingenious Brain of Maria Bamford - NYTimes.com
"Bamford is a small person, narrow-shouldered and spindly legged. Her speaking voice is also small and a bit quavery, lending a charming uncertainty to anything she says. Wrapped inside the wobbliness, though, is an earned authority. Bamford talks about mental illness the same way Sarah Silverman talks about being Jewish or Louis C.K. talks about being divorced, with the flippant knowingness of an insider." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"Most everyone I spoke to about Bamford felt compelled to mention that she’s a deep thinker, an observant introvert who processes everything carefully. “She’s always churning the butter,” was how her older sister, Sarah Seidelmann, put it. “You know what it’s like?” says Jackie Kashian, a comedian who has known Bamford for about 20 years and sometimes travels with her as an opening act. “It’s like being best friends with Hermione Granger. You spend a lot of time in the library.”" - Andrew C (✔)
