Someone asked me when I knew I was going to marry my husband. Truth be told, I knew the moment we first met. A close second moment would be when we discovered our mutual love of The Golden Girls. #goldengirls #sofia4life

oh lordy. y'all want to hear about some nonsense? remember that email I didn't send? well, I sent it. funny how a simple act can shift your whole perspective on a thing. I was so worried about it, and now I realize I give not a single solitary flying fig about it now. My conscience is clear. And good grief, people and they drama!
SO. Background: I've been bummed about the romantic fiasco since February where the dude "wasn't ready to date" then I saw him out with a girl several times... remember that? Well, for some reason I couldn't shake the shitty feeling of it and it got me thinking about my issues and deciding not to date right now, etc. But it was still bothering me, a lot, so part of my therapy homework recently was to monitor "The Three," those indicators of whether a thought pattern is in fact problematic or just temporary mood-based passing phase kinda thing. Turned out is was problematic so I buckled down to figure out why. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Turned out part of what bothered me so much, aside from my usual paranoia trigger stuff, was that I liked this girl. We are more than mere acquaintances, having had several deep personal conversations over the years. She was the kind of person I was glad to see and would usually end up hanging out with when we were at the same place. So it bothered me that my feelings about her changed due to the lame behavior of some dude, and I didn't want that. (You may recall, I mentioned I had avoided her a few times.) - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
As a result of that reflection, I decided to write her an email explaining that my acting differently towards her lately had nothing to do with her, that I thought she was a cool person and I valued our friendship as it's been thus far, and didn't want it to change. Lady friends come first and all that. Also being very clear that I don't want to know anything about whatever is between them becasue it is none of my business, just simply to acknowledge I had been weird and apologize. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Welp. not half an hour later I receive an epic text message from the dude, who mind you has been radio silent since the first time I bumped into them, about how he didn't intentionally disrespect me, he's sorry for not communicating with me all this time, he hopes we can be friends because it's a small town and we're bound to bump into one another (yeah no shit!), but he understands if I don't want to be friends as a result of his behavior, how this apology is long overdue, etc. etc. etc. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
meanwhile I get an email response from her and it is all over the frickin place. going on about her dating adventures juggling three guys, including one WHO IS CURRENTLY DATING A MUTUAL FRIEND OF OURS, and this guy SINCE DECEMBER! and she had a feeling something was up with me but didn't want to pry, figured it was probably about this guy though she wasn't sure. Then something about how they are just friends "if that helps." - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
In summary: I think both of these people are kinda nuts, and I am not interested in having any personal dealings with either of them beyond common courtesy. And whatever I was bummed about is only in relation to an alternate universe where I thought one or both of these individuals was worth the time and energy I have already expended on this. Here in this Universe, however, that is clearly not the case. Done and done. Dodged a bullet, possibly two. People are crazy y'all. CRA. ZY. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat

Oh, that's not right, Z. I mean, I'm all for a Guinness and cider drink, but why steal another drink's name? (Weirdly, the B&T drink name pre-dates the police force from what I've read - not that Americans aren't more than happy to roll around with grossly inappropriate or disrespectful drink names.) - Jennifer Dittrich
The name may pre-date the police force, but some current connotations are a tad unavoidable. - Brent Schaus
Guys. Look. I'm telling you what that restaurant called the drinks ok. I don't know the proper names! Also? I'm drunk. :D - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Work the beer, Z! And yes, I guess the name might have arisen before the auxiliaries. - Pete
Well, it isn't like Americans don't have tendency to just ignore everyone else's news and carry on with our own whatnot. Also see: Irish Carbombs http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki... (Yay, America.) - Jennifer Dittrich
right lol - Brent Schaus
in my rather extensive experience in American Irish pubs, you can order a Black and Tan (Guinness and Bass) but if you really want to impress them, you order a Half and Half (Guinness and Harp). A Snakebite is half beer and half cider and a Black Velvet is half Guiness and half cider. As for Irish Carbombs, plenty of Irish American folks drink them, but I have noticed people sometimes don't like to order them. At one pub in Baltimore they just called them "bombs," I think to avoid saying the term. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Snakebite was one of the drinks on that page too! It's an English-style pub though. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart

wack (n.) "crazy person," 1938, back-formation from wacky. Adjective in slang sense of "worthless, stupid," is attested from late 1990s. - Online Etymology Dictionary http://www.etymonline.com/index...
whack (v.) "to strike sharply," 1719, probably of imitative origin. The noun is from 1737. The word in out of whack (1885) is perhaps the slang meaning "share, just portion" (1785), which may be from the notion of the blow that divides, or the rap of the auctioneer's hammer. To have (or take) a whack at something "make an attempt" is from 1891. Related: Whacked; whacking. Whacked out is from 1969. http://www.etymonline.com/index... - Victor Ganata
So, yeah, homophonous, but totally different etymologies. - Victor Ganata
In some accents, they're not even homophones http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki... - Victor Ganata

Oliver "Ironside" Cromwell ft. 'Black Tom' Fairfax - Pete
Depends on how you look at it. "Out of whack" or "whacked out" could possibly be the inspiration behind saying someone or something is "whack" as opposed to saying they're "wack" based on the former definition. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
"The Commonwealth will make you… jump! jump! The Lord Protector will make you… jump! jump!" - Victor Ganata
"they see me rulin' / they hatin'" - Pete
OK, maybe they're not that divergent: wacky (adj.) "crazy, eccentric," 1935, variant of whacky (n.) "fool," late 1800s British slang, probably ultimately from whack "a blow, stroke," from the notion of being whacked on the head one too many times. http://www.etymonline.com/index... - Victor Ganata
Even still, it seems more likely that wack (adj.) is derived from wack (n.) rather than directly from whack (v.) - Victor Ganata
From a totally unscientific survey (i.e., Googling "whack vs wack"), it seems like wack ≠ whack is the current consensus, but maybe I can find some blog posts arguing that wack = whack if I dig deeper…. - Victor Ganata
I'm also thinking that it makes more sense that wack (adj.) is from wacky (adj.) simply because adjectiving a verb (instead of using the gerundive form of a verb) isn't that common. - Victor Ganata

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'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
http://www.northjersey.com/news... - "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

" 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 (✔)

Is reading too much bad for kids? | Al Jazeera America
"Opponents to deep, immersive reading come from all directions. Among American boys, there remains a generations-old sense that books are for sissies; I remember this from my own childhood. For neoliberals and technocrats, reading novels is not “what the market wants.” Concentrated reading doesn’t require ideological opposition to be endangered: The pace of contemporary life, even for children, means that there’s simply no time or energy left for it. Clinging to print these days may be a bit like taking the horse and buggy to work. But doesn’t reading make us more human? Isn’t it a universal sign of civilization? Not really, says Marc Prensky, the media and technology writer who originated the term “digital native.” “There are some things that are common to every human society,” he says. “Speaking is one of them. Reading and writing are not on that list.” In the classical world, we forced ourselves to do something neither natural nor inevitable, he explains, but that solved a problem:... more... - Jessie from Bookmarklet

"These experiences changed the way I felt about the police. After the third incident I worried when police cars drove by; I was afraid I would be stopped and searched or that something worse would happen. I dress better if I go downtown. I don’t hang out with friends outside my neighborhood in Harlem as much as I used to. Essentially, I incorporated into my daily life the sense that I might find myself up against a wall or on the ground with an officer’s gun at my head. For a black man in his 20s like me, it’s just a fact of life in New York. Here are a few other facts: last year, the N.Y.P.D. recorded more than 600,000 stops; 84 percent of those stopped were blacks or Latinos. Police are far more likely to use force when stopping blacks or Latinos than whites. In half the stops police cite the vague “furtive movements” as the reason for the stop. Maybe black and brown people just look more furtive, whatever that means. These stops are part of a larger, more widespread problem — a... more... - Paul Buchheit from Bookmarklet

"Svoboda is hardly a fringe organization. In the 2012 election won by the now deposed president, Viktor Yanukovych, the party took 10.45 percent of the vote and over 40 percent in parts of the western Ukraine." - Victor Ganata
"Svoboda—which currently has thirty-six deputies in the 450-member Ukrainian parliament—began life in the mid-1990s as the Social National Party of the Ukraine, but its roots lie in World War II, when Ukrainian nationalists and Nazis found common ground in the ideology of anti-communism and anti-Semitism." - Victor Ganata
take pound of salt when you read all of these... "the common ground" is somewhat shaky, didn't hold in Nuremberg tribunal and there are other... issues. - непростые коротышки

Sure, everyone in the press has an agenda and The Nation is very likely to push for the U.S. not to get involved at all, but it also seems that ultranationalist parties in whatever country all tend to have the same common ground of xenophobic prejudice (and the U.S. is certainly no exception with the Tea Party) so the existence of some of these groups doesn't really surprise me. - Victor Ganata

It's that bad. Don't be fooled by previous comments. The article is a great piece of analysis of nazi aspect of Ukrainian revolution. - Предварительные сказки
