As I brushed Emily's hair this morning, she said to me "Now I will be beautiful like you, Mummy." <3 #fb
I'm wearing a t-shirt that's been slept in, no bra or pants, messy greasy bed hair, oily spotty face, huge eye bags, I probably smell, and she still thinks I'm beautiful. - Melly
That's because she (like kids everywhere) can see your inner self. - Bren from iPhone
At what age do we get brainwashed about beauty? - Stephan from iPhone
I'm seeing it in her already Stephan and it makes me sad. She will put a dress on and say "Now I'm pretty", like she wasn't before. - Melly
I swear I thought that said "Messy greasy beard" and I was about to start clutching my pearls. - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Melly, I am also seeing this with our two year old. I find it appalling. Another educational opportunity, sadly. - Stephan from iPhone
Hookuh you get a free moustache ride. - Melly

This Guy Got Burning Revenge On A Coworker Stealing His Wife’s Lunch
"I’m a bit of a chilli head. Love my hot sauces. I also love to cook. I also cook my wife a delicious lunch each day, She kept complaining that someone was stealing her lunch every couple of days out of the fridge at work. So I made her some buffalo wings for lunch to put in the fridge. They are really popular with her colleagues, but I spiced them up just a little with some Blair’s 4am Reserve. (I note you are meant to dilute it with 1 drop per 5 litres of liquid.) So I added a couple of drops of Blairs 4am Reserve per wing with nice dusting of Ghost chilli powder for good measure. I did eat a couple to make sure it didn’t kill anybody, they were real hot. Even cream doesn’t cut the heat: and Ghost chillies keep getting hotter for about 5 minutes. Needless to say just before lunch, there was a shrill from the kitchen, a young male colleague decided to help himself the my wife’s lunch which was clearly marked with her name. He ran to the toilet and vomited over and over. Apparently... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

"Gabi's relationship with the neighbourhood crows began accidentally in 2011. She was four years old, and prone to dropping food. She'd get out of the car, and a chicken nugget would tumble off her lap. A crow would rush in to recover it. Soon, the crows were watching for her, hoping for another bite. As she got older, she rewarded their attention, by sharing her packed lunch on the way to the bus stop. Her brother joined in. Soon, crows were lining up in the afternoon to greet Gabi's bus, hoping for another feeding session." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"The crows would clear the feeder of peanuts, and leave shiny trinkets on the empty tray; an earring, a hinge, a polished rock. There wasn't a pattern. Gifts showed up sporadically - anything shiny and small enough to fit in a crow's mouth. One time it was a tiny piece of metal with the word "best" printed on it. "I don't know if they still have the part that says 'friend'," Gabi laughs, amused by the thought of a crow wearing a matching necklace." - Mark H
"Lisa, Gabi's mom, regularly photographs the crows and charts their behaviour and interactions. Her most amazing gift came just a few weeks ago, when she lost a lens cap in a nearby alley while photographing a bald eagle as it circled over the neighbourhood. She didn't even have to look for it. It was sitting on the edge of the birdbath. Had the crows returned it? Lisa logged on to her... more... - Mark H

I didn't mention it much at the turn of the year, but 2014 was the best year that ever happened to me. Lots of heavy things resolved, two great holidays after an almost 13 year drought and some weight loss success. This year I only have one commandment to follow: do it all better.

Would love for you to see the USA not through the eyes of the media but see it through the eyes of FF types. - Janet from FFHound!
Oh, my perspective has been hugely expanded by US FFers over the years. That's a tiny concern next to my real one: getting in. Any Aussies I know with Islamic, Persian or Arab backgrounds, or even Sikh and Hindu have had enormous issues getting in. Not interested in dealing with that - Mo Kargas

Nevada Lawmaker Says Cancer Is A Fungus, Recommends Simply Washing It Out | ThinkProgress -
"Fiore, who is also CEO of a healthcare company […] told listeners: “If you have cancer, which I believe is a fungus, and we can put a pic line into your body and we’re flushing, let’s say, salt water, sodium cardonate [sic], through that line, and flushing out the fungus… These are some procedures that are not FDA-approved in America that are very inexpensive, cost-effective.”" - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"The American Cancer Society warns that while cancer patients whose immune systems are weakened by high doses of chemotherapy can sometimes contract fungal infections, “there is no evidence that antifungal treatment causes the patients’ tumors to shrink.” Cancer Research UK dismisses the claim that sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) can cure cancer as a debunked “persistent cancer myth.”" - Andrew C (✔)

The Joys And Derangement Of "F Troop" - The Awl
"Here’s the thing about those Gen Xers like me and the pop culture ephemera we glommed from latchkey childhoods with pre-cable VHF/UHF television sets: we weren’t so much consuming entertainment as we were soaking in it. If you were old enough to watch TV in the early 70s, a large portion of the TV you were watching, particularly after school, consisted of syndicated reruns of old network TV. There were the locally produced kids shows with cartoons as well, but after that, until prime time (and aside from the local/national news), it was reruns. “Petticoat Junction,” “The Munsters,” “Beverly Hillbillies,” “Green Acres” and even “Batman,” these were shows that had long ceased production, but lived on to fill the holes in the schedules of each local station. Accordingly, your media training—those first doses of mass media that train you how to consume and unpack entertainment—was provided by TV shows that were five or ten years dead." - Micah from Bookmarklet
I watched quite a bit of F Troop when I was young, but I don't remember much about it now. - John (bird whisperer)
John, same. The two actors in film still above + the Captain played by Ken Berry I remember the most. - Micah

F Troop and Hogan's Heroes were the 3:30 - 4:30 block on a local public channel. I loved them for their utter silliness. Same with Green Acres. Turned my daughter onto that show a few months ago, she's in love. - Anika
I was into all of those shows. - Brent Schaus from iPhone
It's funny how it depends on how old you were when you were exposed to them. Beverly Hillbillies, Batman, Hogan's Heroes, Addams Family, The Munsters, those I grew up with. But Petticoat Junction, F Troop, and McHale's Navy, those I didn't see until I was in my early 20's, and then they just puzzled me and they seemed to be trying too hard somehow. Like they were imitations, not the real thing. I was also a latecomer to Green Acres, but that one didn't seem like an imitation. - bentley

Straight Talk for White Men []
(via Nakachi on FB) From Kristof's post: "SUPERMARKET shoppers are more likely to buy French wine when French music is playing, and to buy German wine when they hear German music. That’s true even though only 14 percent of shoppers say they noticed the music, a study finds." ... "Those studies are a reminder that we humans are perhaps less rational than we would like to think, and more prone to the buffeting of unconscious influences." - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
"It’s not that we white men are intentionally doing anything wrong, but we do have a penchant for obliviousness about the way we are beneficiaries of systematic unfairness. Maybe that’s because in a race, it’s easy not to notice a tailwind, and white men often go through life with a tailwind, while women and people of color must push against a headwind." Also, if there's a tailwind, that may imply that I'm not as fast as I thought I was. - Eivind

When I saw the film it was in a theatre full of screaming women, so the short answer is yes. I suspect there was some good Soderberg dialogue happening, but I would need to rewatch it. For educational purposes, of course. - Corinne L

After some deliberation (which began long before I was let go from my job), I've decided to move back to Montreal. Barring unforeseen circumstances, I'll be in La Belle Province by 01 April.
I've lamented having left Montreal since arriving in Victoria. Yes, my parents were and are my main reason for coming, and that's gone wonderfully. We've never been closer. - Brent Schaus
However, there are more job opportunities in Montreal, a much lower cost of living, and a lifestyle and culture that works for me. - Brent Schaus
The biggest difference between this time and last? I now have 2+ years experience as a technical writer. - Brent Schaus
Wow, I'm surprised the cost of living is lower. - Spidra Webster
Much lower. Victoria and Vancouver have the highest costs of living in the country, I believe. - Brent Schaus
Here's a comparison of the average rent by city, in Canada: - Brent Schaus
The only things that could derail these plans are if I received a whopper of a job offer, or if my EI doesn't go through. I'll find out about the former when I meet with my former CEO this week. I want to confirm that he's still giving me a stellar reference (they loved my work, and were sad to see me go). As for the latter, so far so good... full speed ahead. I'll know in a few weeks for sure, but it should be okay. - Brent Schaus
I plan on confirming a place to stay BEFORE I leave, unlike last time. - Brent Schaus

I arrived in Victoria three years ago on 04 March, 2012. Basically, I feel as if I accomplished the mission. I got my foot in the door as a technical writer, and healed my relationship with my parents. - Brent Schaus
Bren, that would be fantastic! We could get into a lot of trouble in that town :) - Brent Schaus
Sans doute! - Bren
Ah, I adore Montreal. <3 And it's wonderful to hear that you accomplished your goals and healed your relationship with your parents. This sounds like a beautiful life journey. - joey
