The iPhone does your push-ups for you? - Mike Nencetti

I FORGOT TO ASK YOU ABOUT THE PUSHUPS! *shoot* - MoTO Boychick Devil

Michael W. May
So, my nephew, who is pre-enlisted in the Marines for after college and is a devout Christian, reblogged this https://www.facebook.com/BrianKo... over on FB. I felt the undeniable need to respond and did so with this:
10462787_829469350448517_5072489704646873215_n.jpg
1. Torture does not work. The DoD, CIA, and FBI themselves admit this. It has been proven time and again by those agencies and others. - Michael W. May
2. Enemy Combatants, legally known as unlawful combatants, while not subject to the Geneva Convention and treatment of POWs, are entitled to lawful treatment under the Uniform Code of Military Justice. As a fighting force, our code of conduct declares we are better than that. - Michael W. May
3. On 18 April 1988, the United States of America signed the United Nations Convention against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (commonly known as the United Nations Convention against Torture). On 21 October 1994, we radified it. As a nation, before the eyes of the world, we declared we are better than that. - Michael W. May
4. 657 of the 779 detainees imprisoned at Gantonimo since 2002 have been released. In other words, 92% of those we held indefinitely and tortured we had insufficient evidence to formally charge and bring before a military tribunal. Oops. - Michael W. May
5. As of January, 54 more of those 122 currently held are awaiting release, determined to also have insufficient evidence of guilt. We are still holding people against their will whom we cannot even bring formal charges against, people who may have been tortured. - Michael W. May
6. Christian religions, as well as all other prominent religions, teach love, forgiveness, patience, kindness, and hold high truth. Jesus never preached simulated drowning or deprivation of sleep against ones enemies. He washed their feet. He said to love others as you would yourself, to offer the other cheek when struck, and that what we do to others, we do to Him. - Michael W. May
7. We are better than this. - Michael W. May
It obviously really irked me. - Michael W. May
I made the mistake of clicking through to the OP and the comments made me ill. (will I ever learn?) I hope your nephew reads your words and heeds them. We don't need people joining the military who think like this. My heart sinks at the thought of men and women joining the military with these kinds of ideas in their heads. That's not what it should be about at all. - Hookuh Tinypants
Thank you, Michael. Great info... I saw a post like that and avoided it on my timeline. Feeling compelled to post these points that direction. - SAM
Nicely done. - Melly
Feel free to use liberally. I was adding links to each point, but they are each so easily searched, I figured it was up to detractors to prove them wrong. - Michael W. May
Posted to weird uncle's post on Fb. Thank you, sir. - SAM
After he replied with a 'doesn't mean I believe all of it' and I asked him to clarify what part he did believe, nephew deleted his repost without further comment. I am hoping it was because he seriously started to think. - Michael W. May

There's a post on the SAHM Facebook page about freezing sandwiches for school lunches, and it has over 600 comments on it, mostly because people are freaking out about how horrible, lazy and disgusting it is.
One woman admitted she throws out at least half of each loaf of bread she buys because she can't eat anything less than fresh. I cannot fathom that amount of waste. - Melly
how is planning ahead and not wasting money lazy? - ellbeecee
I have no idea! - Melly
Frozen sandwiches work perfectly in the Queensland climate this time of year, too. Most classrooms don't have a fridge and cooler bricks only do so much. Throw a frozen sandwich in your lunch box in the morning and it's perfect by lunch time. I don't freeze sandwiches much but I freeze muffins and cake etc all the time. - Melly
I feel bad enough throwing out food that has spoiled because I didn't get around to using/eating it in time. I can't imagine throwing out something perfectly edible just because it wasn't "fresh". - Melly
I mean, my mother pre-made and froze sandwiches when I was little, and we clearly survived. I didn't like butter on them as a spread, but I still ate them because that was what was for lunch. I don't do it now because I don't take sandwiches for lunch. - ellbeecee
and yes, freezing can dry bread out.still edible. toast it. (thinking about waste like this makes me grumpy :) ) - ellbeecee
It's not to everyone's taste, but in that case I think one can just not do it rather than bag out someone who does. I can't stop laughing. I'm just... REALLY??! This is that important to argue about? - Melly
Let's debate something that's actually important. Like which way the toilet roll goes. - Melly
over the top. :p (though actually, being me I never put it on the holder anyway. I mean, I"m just going ot use it and have to replace it, I never have guests over, and most importantly, the holder is just a smidge too far away in my apartment to reach easily. So where I put it makes more sense, to me anyway :) - ellbeecee
I often leave it on the top too... and then blame someone else for not putting it on. - Melly
WAIT. My husband is on FF.. - Melly
I ALWAYS put the new toilet roll on the holder and NEVER sit it on top of the empty one. EVER. - Melly
I don't care if the roll is put on over/under, on top of an empty roll, on the floor, wherever. For sake of all that is holy, AT LEAST PUT A ROLL SOMEWHERE WHEN IT RUNS OUT. - That's So CAJ!
*high five* - Melly
Meanwhile I'm sitting here finding lots of things to do to prepare for work tomorrow when I should be making Josiah's lunch and heading to bed. I need to start freezing some damn sandwiches! - Melly
Freezing sandwiches sounds really gross. Then again, I'm firmly against cold sandwiches. I guess if the heat's going to thaw it, but then that sounds like the kid will have soggy veggies/bread, which is also gross. - Anika
I freeze bread all of the time, but I never thought to freeze a sandwich. I like good bread but I can't eat a loaf fast enough for it to not go bad. I do make my sandwiches the night before work (pulling a couple slices of bread out of the freezer) and put them in the fridge. They probably think that's horrible, too. - Katy S from iPhone
Anika, they are no more soggy than any other sandwich when they defrost. Obviously you wouldn't freeze them if they have ingredients that don't freeze well (eg lettuce). But frozen bread doesn't go soggy as it defrosts. My kids don't really have a choice with regards to sandwich temperature anyway - lunches are stored in a fridge at Em's daycare and Josiah has a cold pack in his lunch box (otherwise by lunch his cheese is gross). - Melly from iPhone
Katy, I shop weekly. I get four loaves of bread, three of which go straight in the freezer. I honestly can't tell the difference between a sandwich made with fresh bread or one made with defrosted. Never had a problem with dryness or freezer burn either. - Melly from iPhone
Yeah. Obviously there's a difference between fresh-out-of-the-oven bread and bread from the freezer, but unless it's been in there a very long time, I haven't noticed it drying out. At least, it doesn't dry out any faster than the bread going bad on my counter. It takes me awhile to get through a loaf of bread, but it's not so long that it would get freezer burn. - Katy S
Since some of you moved on to an important topic: Thanks to two household cats, the only time TP is ever on the roller is if guests are over, since otherwise it would mostly be on the floor totally unrolled. (As for freezing breadstuff: Of course, if that's what's needed to not waste food.) - Walt Crawford
If you don't waste and buy more, you must hate 'Merica. - Michael W. May
It's not even about a frozen sandwich, really. It's more "If you give your kids a frozen sandwich, you are a lazy horrible mother who doesn't care enough." And the one-upping! - Melly from iPhone
"I get up 10 minutes earlier to make them fresh each day." - Melly from iPhone
"I cook something different each day." - Melly from iPhone
"I get up two or three hours earlier than them and cook them a hot breakfast every day as well." - Melly from iPhone
"I don't sleep, I'm too busy harvesting crops and grinding wheat so my kids can have a fresh load of bread every hour." - Melly from iPhone
Do any of their husbands ever toil away to make lunch for the kids? (Note: my dad made and packed our lunches when I was a kid while my mom was out at the barn taking care of the horses in the morning) - Katy S
I think a mother who has taken the time to freeze sandwiches when she has a spare moment in her busy weekly schedule so that her child has a homemade lunch to take to school with them every day is a far better one than a mother who just shoves money in their kid's hand and puts them at the mercy of the school lunch system, or whatever vending machines or shops the child might encounter along the way. - Hookuh Tinypants
And I always put my bread directly in the freezer when I buy it or bake it because nobody in this house goes through enough bread to warrant risking it going moldy sitting in the breadbox. I hate wasting food, so the freezer it is. Never tastes any different than fresh unless you leave it in there for months. And I make my own Uncrustables for my pre-race food. They hold up well and I've never had a frozen or even refrigerated sandwich go soggy. Not unless additional moisture is introduced. - Hookuh Tinypants
I've never really been a fan of frozen/thawed sandwiches, but we do keep our loaves of bread in the fridge. I buy half-loaves of bread for my own sandwiches each week (which makes 4 sandwiches - perfect for the 4 days I'm home each week), and whole loaves for the kidlet's lunch (which generally lasts 1-2 weeks, depending on how many extra sandwiches she eats (dinner, weekends, etc.).... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I never froze sandwiches, but I did store my daughter's beverages in the freezer. During winter I had to take it out of the freezer and put it in the fridge the night before, so it would be defrosted enough to drink by lunch time. In warmer months it went straight from the freezer into her lunch box. She loved having a can of "slushie" packed with her lunches, and it was much more... more... - April Russo
Oh, look...I am the worst mom! I don't make my kid's lunches at all. If they don't make a lunch, they eat whatever is served at school. - Anika
Shock horror Anika!!!! How do you live with yourself??! - Melly from iPhone
Frolicking. Lots of frolicking. - Anika from Android

RT @joshbavas: Three people have been found dead at a house on outskirts of Toowoomba after reports of shooting. @abcnews_qld
Police have said they're not chasing any suspects, which makes me think it's been a murder-suicide. One report said it's possibly a 50yo man, a 28yo woman, and a 7yo boy :o( - Melly
Teenage woman rather than a 28yo, all in the same family. Another family member happened up on them this evening :o( - Melly

Brian, go to "Me" link (http://friendfeed.com/brianjo...) which defaults to the Feed tab. Look at the sidebar on the right, below Discussion. - Micah

OK, sorry. I'm a total dumbass. I stopped reading after the weekly totals... - Brian Johns
3.74, which seems way off of everybody else's. I wonder what that says. I comment a lot more than I like. - Cyrus Lendvay
FFers use FF with their own strategy or simply default tendencies. The ratio is an interesting snapshot of behaviour. Thanks for joining in everyone, hope more keep flowing in. - Micah from twhirl

Looks like my ratio as flipped again (comments back to dominating again). Seems to match my own awareness I've lately been commenting without Liking (commenting is my inherent recognition of value to me and the additional Like is when it merits an extra bump to help discovery by others). - Micah

Jimminy, I'm copyrighting every single number. It's kind of a honeypot ;) Actually, it was curiosity mostly, but I also hope to build a sampling (small and self-selecting as it may be) for anyone who might want to analyze it. - Micah

Wow I didn't realize I was so out of whack!! 12.23 that's got to be a record (and I don't even import my feeds with the summary as a comment)!! - Chris Myles
Thanks JA, Chris (wow, 12+ is unusual :), Serkan and Nine! - Micah
Micah.. I told you I take my likes seriously; ). You *might* want to ask (in a separate post) what percentage of likes were used to "bookmark" a post or save it for later VS actually "liking it". I NEVER used like for that.. but I did use a private group that if filled with my own topics (and comments).. - Chris Myles
1.78 (8529/4782) - Micah
Likes are down relative to comments, which matches my much lower frequency of liking. I'm a more selective liker than ever. - Micah
I don't think I could argue that any particular kind of ratio is "best", because if Lurkers like to Lurk and cultivate (via Likes) and the Chatty-ites love to chat, to pump out much many more comments than Likes, each can be happy and make for a great social experience. - Micah

wow, what a difference time makes, when i 1st posted on this thread, 6.43%, now = 1.25%, for a 5.18% difference, :o (and this is the earliest post to date i've recovered of my activity on ff) - chaz2b
chaz, I think there's been a big fluctuation for most people (maybe not that much). This is the oldest post on which you commented that you've recovered? - Micah

Thank you, Alex :) - Micah
that was my third post... It's interesting to see how the number has changed. of course, I manipulated the number to a degree, because I stopped "liking" things for a while... - Bren
Bren, the other thing that can seriously throw off someone's stats is a feed that upon each item it imports adds a comment automatically. - Micah
true. that can seriously inflate comment stats, of course. Then you have someone like RAPatton, who posts a gazillion comments, in part because of his playlist posts where he will list each song in a separate comment. I found, after this post in fact, that I tended to "like" things much more frequently than comment on them, that I was lurking instead of participating. I have changed the way I use ff rather considerably, and I think for the better. - Bren
Thanks, Sarah, Tutivillus. - Micah

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
WOO HOO! I WIN! :D - Hookuh Tinypants

RT @nacchoaustralia: This is what our mob can buy with a $300 food voucher in the Pilbara WA at designated stores  @SandyDavies8 http://t.co/Y33MmHdcGm
This makes me so sad. $300 would get me at least double this amount, and would include fresh fruit & veggies instead of tinned. Such a crock. - Melly
Can they only buy specific products with the voucher? Even in the expensive SF Bay Area, 300 American dollars gets us WAY more than that. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
They can only spend at certain stores and the store owners have been accused of jacking up their prices to profit from it :o/ - Melly
That was my next thought. It's a once-a-month voucher? What bullshit. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I'm not sure how often they get it, actually. I had no idea it was this bad until I saw this Tweet. Trying to get the government to look into it is probably like pulling teeth. Ugh. - Melly
Yeah with the brand name stuff it's probably $100-150, here, but if you go generic for a lot of it you could probably drop $20-50 from that. - NOT THE CRICKET

Mum is having Emily for the day tomorrow so they can spend some time together and I can have some "me time", but my schedule is jam packed - typical!
At least I can work quietly (except for the birds) and without interruption (except for Noah) ;o) - Melly

My goal for the night - Inbox 10 (zero would be pushing it). #fb
I got distracted by Harry Potter and Elektra on tv, but did manage to get it down to 15 :oD - Melly
And tonight it's down to 13, even after dealing with all the new email from today. - Melly
That's So CAJ!

Omg! - Melly

The Indian Bullfrog (Hoplobatrachus tigerinus) may not look like much, but its appearance can change dramatically. During most of the season, both genders are a rather dull kaki-olive-green, but once the mating season comes around, things change drastically: males put on their good suits to impress all the ladies! - Mahdi from Bookmarklet

It seems that Jess Ainscough, The Wellness Warrior, has succumbed to cancer aged 30. It's sad but I'm also so fucking angry.
If you want to turn your back on conventional medicine, fine. But to turn your journey into a business, let people believe you are cured, hide the fact that your cancer has furiously returned until it's impossible to do so any longer, and take people's money the whole time? No. - Melly
And then at the end she did a 180 and started working with an oncologist again. Sadly it was way too late. I do hope the modern medicine she spurned was able to bring her physical comfort and relief from her pain in her final days. - Melly
I was unfamiliar with who she was, so I had to do some reading on her. Yeah I agree that it is not cool to profit on a whack "healing" system that you know personally doesn't work. I think she was in a terrible situation having to choose alternative medicine versus having her entire arm + shoulder/shoulder blade removed (the first step in treating the rare cancer she had) , especially... more... - Chris Topher
When she made the announcement her condition had worsened and she was seeing an oncologist again, some of her own fans/followers turned on her, basically telling her she was doing it wrong, and if she just tried harder and stuck more closely to the Gerson regimen she'd beat it. I have no doubt many of these same people will think it was the end stage medical treatment that killed her... more... - Melly
I also find it strange that all her social media accounts etc have disappeared. She had such a massive following, and now they've all been left in the dark. - Melly
But it's sad, sad, sad. - Melly
I feel like when it comes to the various "healing" methods, they all just lump every kind of cancer into one sickness and try to "treat" it as a whole, regardless of where it is, what kind it is, how aggressive it is, etc. I agree though, it is sad. - Chris Topher
My view is very much biased due to what my MIL went through after her MND diagnosis, I fully admit that. Her experience made me aware that this kind of thing went on. If someone wants to use these kind of therapies, that's their choice. But they are too often peddled as cures and successful treatments. Caveat emptor, I guess. - Melly

Worked on dishes and sink. #Protip: expanding foam is a bear to get off of anything once it has dried.
Cleaned out a lower cabinet and washed all the storage containers. Future project: matching containers with lids. - Prairie & I Know It from Android
I've begun to replace our older containers with Decor Match-Ups - the containers and lids both have a coloured rim for easy matching! All the x coloured lids fit all the x coloured containers, etc. - Melly

9am on a Saturday. Kids are fed and dressed and playing, cat and dog fed, litter box changed, first load of washing on, rack of dry dishes put away, new sink of dishes started. COFFEE NOW.
You've earned it! - Prairie & I Know It from Android
10:45am. Drank 3/4 of my coffee, took the kids up the road to see the trucks, came home, finished my (now cold) coffee, made Emily a snack, cleaned the toilet, hung the first load of washing, put another load in, washed the plates, put the bowls in to soak, reclaimed & wiped down some bench space, attempted to resurrect some soiled underwear of Emily's (nope, into the bin), made myself some food. - Melly

It usually takes at least half an hour to pass by. Way too hot this year to stand and watch the whole time, but we live just around the corner so we can hear it all ;o) - Melly
I can never listen to the song without getting goosebumps, and on convoy days it makes me cry. - Melly

Burning the midnight oil. Who knew late night radio was so awesome? #fb

Well shit, thought I heard thunder, checked BOM and there's a severe thunderstorm warning - we're right in the path of the red zone! http://www.bom.gov.au/cgi-bin... - Melly
Time to bring Gypsie inside. - Melly
No, Gypsie says. I'd much rather go under the house and lie in the dirt. - Melly
Ooooh, Pet Shop Boys. - Melly
And now the rain is so loud I can't hear the radio. Time to get back to work anyway. It's 3am. Ugh. - Melly

Today I did a total of 15 pushups thanks to the Hundred Pushups iPhone app. (Week 1, Day 2, Level 1) #100Pushups
So impressed! I can do 3. :( lol so weak. - Marie
Woot!!! - Amit Patel
Marie, I could only do 2 when I started the Hundred Pushups thing - Amit Patel
Amit, did you have a strategy other than "doing more push-ups" to progress? Does simply doing more of them over time make you stronger? If so, I'll grab that app. - Marie
it's like the Couch to 5K for pushups. gradually increases over time. i was up to the 50s, I think, before i lost motivation. - holly #ravingfangirl
My push-ups are extremely modified! Once I go through the program I'll start over with another type and keep repeating until I'm up to "real" push-ups. - Melly
This is what I'm doing now: http://greatist.com/tips... - Melly
Yay Melly! - Amit Patel
Marie, I followed the schedule on the free web site (I didn't get the app). I wasn't able to go as fast as they wanted, but I tried anyway, and made some progress. I never got close to 100 though. - Amit Patel

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.
AND VISIT MELLY & JOHNNY - Melly
And come to America with Melly! - Janet from FFHound!
\o/ :)) - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Visit Melly and Johnny? Some day, I'm overdue for a trip up there. America - well the USA, I sincerely doubt that will happen for reasons I've stated many times. Maybe Canada? - Mo Kargas
I hear Vancouver is quite lovely.... and nearby ;) - Jennifer Dittrich
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

I listened to the radio and ate some chocolate whilst playing games on my phone, then left the radio on to listen to as I fell asleep. I usually only listen to the radio in the car but I needed something "chatty" and constant in my ear. - Melly

Love that site. Never did make it to 100, but I made a lot of progress and it made me feel good. 11 is good! - Amit Patel
They were very modified push ups! But once I get through I'll start again with a more difficult kind. - Melly from iPhone

aww, Congrats to her and the family! She's adorable. :) - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Thanks Anna. It's an awesome achievement for anyone, but for someone with a background like hers, it seems even more amazing. My brother is hoping to bring her to Australia for a visit later this year. I'm so excited to meet her. - Melly
She's in a meeting right now where she will find out where she'll be teaching first! - Melly
Best of luck to her! :) - AHnix (Anna Haro)
