Happy 88th, #UncleRobert — Barry makes a difference in this lil' community, and you've made a difference in him, so we're all connected somehow.
Nicely done, Micah. The old man is well acquainted with this book from his days as a church deacon and as a UAW shop steward. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte
Happy Birthday Uncle Robert! 88 is a mighty fine age. I'm sure it's your influence that has resulted in Barry being so popular with the ladies. I hope you didn't share all your secrets with him though - some tricks you just have to keep to yourself ;o) Cheers! #unclerobert

Happy birthday, Barry's Uncle Robert! You helped a young boy grow into a fine, upstanding man whom I am glad to know. Even a little bit, on the internet :D. Thank you!! #unclerobert

As the internet is forever here's a portion of my eulogy yesterday so mom lives forever in another place.
For the benefit of those of you who did not grow up in our full house the first thing you might not know about Barbara is that she was wicked smart. A graduate of UC Davis, a voracious reader, first chair cello in her younger days, and the sole viewer of PBS's Masterpiece Theater. There was no newspaper editor who could get a mistake in grammar or punctuation past her red pen and the articles final resting place of shame on the kitchen refrigerator. - Steve C
But like all true superheroes she used her powers only for good channeling her talents to help the needy, the whiny, and the masses to be molded, aka her children. While being a supermom has come to be a trendy topic I would like to imagine that if a Tiger Mom walked up to our mom, Barbara would simply slap her across the face and turn and walk away shaking her head. Alas since no... more... - Steve C
There are no gang bangers, druggies, or arrests in the family. There is no one on the pole except Diana and her ballet barre. There is only a large collection of kind people plus me who is pretty. - Steve C
And we all got here because of mom. Because she was deathly allergic to nuts but made peanut butter sandwiches for everyone for 15 straight years. Because she was willing to drive from morning till night to get 9 kids through the infinite maze of school, band, and sports. Because she was not only at every baseball and soccer game but more than likely the team mom and scorekeeper.... more... - Steve C
When Genevieve passed away mom lost 1/9th of her heart, and she said I was the strong one. But she is the one who carried on caring for the eight of us. It is a shame to lose her when I am all of 2 weeks into this parenting thing but she gave all she was, and all she had to all of us, and that alone within me is worth more than the advice of a thousand tiger moms. - Steve C
Thanks. - Steve C

"How should Argentina fans feel about all this, given the disappointment they’ve experienced in World Cups past and the hopes they’ve pinned on Messi this year? So far in the 2014 tournament, Messi has been erasing whatever gap there was between his Barcelona stats and his Argentina stats, with style. And that gap was never really as big as it appeared. Since the 2010 World Cup, Messi has scored 19 goals and six assists for Argentina in 22 games (.9 goals per game and .3 assists per game, compared to 1.1 and .4 for Barca). For shooting/assisting efficiency, he has scored .199 GAA per game for Argentina versus .262 for Barca. He also has better defensive stats for Argentina, so even if there are persistent differences, it’s quite possible it has to do with style and Messi’s role on each team rather than the quality of his play. And 22 games is a tiny sample. Even so, these stats are perfectly consistent with the argument that Messi is the best footballer on earth: That .199 GAA is... more... - Eivind from Bookmarklet

Man bends door of burning SUV to rescue locked-in driver - San Jose Mercury News -
Man bends door of burning SUV to rescue locked-in driver - San Jose Mercury News
"A Minnesota man credits "pure adrenaline" for giving him the strength to bend the door of a burning SUV to rescue its driver. Bob Renning, 52, of Woodbury, Minn., said he could hear Michael Johannes, 51, of Minneapolis trying to escape through the passenger side door as the 2006 Chevy Trailblazer filled with smoke Sunday evening on Interstate 35W near New Brighton. "He was kicking and beating the window trying to break it open from the inside," Renning said. "I knew I didn't have a lot of time." Renning was southbound on I-35W when he saw in his mirrors flames shooting out from beneath an SUV six or seven car-lengths behind him. He slowed down to get Johannes' attention and they pulled over at the same time, with Renning stopping about 250 feet in front of the burning vehicle. Johannes, who just bought the Trailblazer last week, said he knew he was in trouble when his brakes started to fail out and the vehicle began filling up with smoke as he drove down the freeway at 65 mph.

"Anyone who travels beyond Delhi and Mumbai to India's provincial cities will notice English words cropping up increasingly in Hindi conversation. While some of these terms fell out of use in the UK decades ago, others are familiar, but used in bold new ways." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"Picture the scene. I'm chatting to a young man named Yuvraj Singh. He's a college student in the Indian city of Dehra Dun. We're talking in Hindi. But every so often there's an English word. It's Hindi, Hindi, Hindi, and then suddenly an English word or phrase is dropped in: "job", "love story" or "adjust"." - Maitani

"Greenpeace flew its 135-foot-long thermal airship over the National Security Agency's Utah data center on Friday morning, featuring a new slogan, "Illegal Spying Below," painted on a downward pointing arrow. The stunt was meant to highlight the diversity of groups pushing against the widespread government surveillance that was revealed last year. The environmental group Greenpeace was joined by the Tenth Amendment Center, which pushes for states' rights, and the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF)." - Me from Bookmarklet

Celebrate romance with detailed Lego versions of famous Princess Bride scenes · Great Job, Internet! · The A.V. Club
"Brickworld Chicago rolled through Illinois recently, bringing with it a slew of meticulously crafted LEGO displays. One group really went for the feels, though, by recreating almost every scene from the beloved Princess Bride. Who out there hasn’t wished for a romance like that of Wesley and Princess Buttercup, but in Lego form? Or the sweet revenge of Inigo Montoya on his father’s killer reconstructed with plastic figures? The guys Lego’d everything from little Fred Savage’s bedroom to the fire swamp and the pit of despair to Wesley’s battle of wits and Montoya’s famous sword fight." - rönin from Bookmarklet
Dido Elizabeth Belle (1761-1804) was an illegitimate daughter of John Lindsay and an African slave woman known only as Belle. Very little is known about Belle only that she was black and a slave. Her daughter Dido lived in the household of the Earl of Mansfield who was her father's Uncle and her Great-Uncle. - Halil from Bookmarklet
Lindsay sent the child to his uncle, the Earl of Mansfield, who lived with his family at Kenwood House in Hampstead, England, which was then just outside London. He and his wife, who were childless, were already raising her cousin Elizabeth Murray after her mother's death; Elizabeth was about the same age as Dido. It is possible Mansfield took her in as Elizabeth's playmate and, later... more... - Halil
Lord Mansfield himself resolved this paradox in his capacity as Lord Chief Justice of England and Wales. When called upon to judge the case of an escaped slave, Somersett's Case, he decreed that "The state of slavery is of such a nature, that it is incapable of being introduced on any reasons, moral or political; but only positive law, which preserves its force long after the reasons,... more... - Halil
The Ancient Egyptian invention that made everything else possible - -
The Ancient Egyptian invention that made everything else possible -
"The history of Egypt boggles the mind. By any standard the scale of achievement was enormous, but through it all, it seems clear that the economy remained rooted in agriculture. It was the everyday business of the ancient Egyptians to produce food. This they did using a system that was the envy of all. Sandra Postel, Director of the Global Water Policy Project, said that overall, Egypt’s system of basin irrigation proved inherently more stable from an ecological, political, social, and institutional perspective than that of any other irrigation-based society in human history, including the Fertile Crescent of Mesopotamia where a fallow year had to be interposed to rest the land between harvests on land that was also subject to salinization, something that did not happen along the Nile. “Fundamentally … the system sustained an advanced civilization through numerous political upheavals and other destabilizing events over some 5,000 years. No other place on Earth has been in continuous cultivation for so long.”" - Maitani from Bookmarklet
I'm currently working my way through a rather long lecture series on Egypt's rather long history. I'm all the way up to the 19th dynasty now and 1177 B.C. is on the horizon :) - Eivind
So you've already learned about the Battle of Kadesh? - Maitani
I am quite interested in Egypt's relations with Mittani and with the Hittites. - Maitani
Aye. I've had quite a bit to do with the Hittites lately. Mittani's been around, too. To get back to papyrus: When the Hittites switch from clay tablets to papyrus, we stop hearing from them. Thanks, Egypt :-P - Eivind from Android
:D, Eivind! Btw., the article mainly deals with the part papyrus boats and ropes play in the evolving Egyptian civilization prior to 3,000 BCE: "By far the most ingenious item that emerged from that period was rope, without which building boats and houses would have been more difficult, not to mention the erection of monuments for which Egypt is remembered in later times." It is fascinating to read. - Maitani
I read it, and I agree :) - Eivind
