Lurker. Drama-free. You can rest assured that if I ever decide to quit FF, it will be silently and in the dead of night.

Enjoy Being Recreationally Abducted For Just $950: Gothamist
"Do you have a large amount of disposable income? Have you grown weary of your typical recreational activities—flying the private jet to Bali, eating fresh sashimi off the naked torso of Miss Uruguay 2011? Did you watch The Game and think to yourself, "What a cool gift, I want that!" Well good news, wealthy weirdo: Now you can pay $950 to be professionally abducted." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Taipei politician brings giant Trojan horse adorned with Chinese flag into legislative council
"In this instance, of course, the horse is Chinese economic interests in Taiwan, which some believe will serve as a vehicle for the manipulation of local politics, buying out the democratic Republic of China rather than bombing it out. There wasn't any adultery, wife-stealing, anyone named Helen involved or any soldiers breaking out of the blow-up statue, which proved to be a bit anti-climatic, but we think he got his point across." - rönin from Bookmarklet

What to Say When Your Child Blathers on About Minecraft | Jessica Ziegler
"Creeper. Notch. Enderman. Griefers. Mobs. Mods. If you have a Minecrafter in your house, you've likely heard these words shouted -- like a foreign language -- from the computer room. Minecraft is EVERYWHERE. If you have an Internet connection and a 7- to... well... 45-year-old, good luck escaping it." - rönin from Bookmarklet

This Panda May Have Faked a Pregnancy So She Could Eat Better - http://gawker.com/this-pa...
LOL "The first-ever live broadcast of giant panda cubs being born has suffered a major setback—the star of the show, Ai Hin, isn't actually pregnant. Zookeepers now believe she was "faking it" to get a cushier room and more food. The 6-year-old panda, housed at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, evidently mimicked signs of pregnancy—changes in appetite, energy level, and hormones—after noticing the perks pregnant pandas receive at the base." - rönin from Bookmarklet
Yeah, I hear that false pregnancies are pretty common in pandas. Certainly more common than real ones. - Slippy

The Strange & Curious Tale of the Last True Hermit
"For nearly thirty years, a phantom haunted the woods of Central Maine. Unseen and unknown, he lived in secret, creeping into homes in the dead of night and surviving on what he could steal. To the spooked locals, he became a legend—or maybe a myth. They wondered how he could possibly be real. Until one day last year, the hermit came out of the forest." - rönin from Bookmarklet
Good story if you have some time - Steve C Team Marina
"Knight's arrest, rather than eliminating disbelief, only enhanced it. The truth was stranger than the myth. One man had actually lived in the woods of Maine for twenty-seven years, in an unheated nylon tent. Winters in Maine are long and intensely cold: a wet, windy cold, the worst kind of cold. A week of winter camping is an impressive achievement. An entire season is practically... more... - Steve C Team Marina

Ramen Lobster Roll - Thrillist Recipes
That... does not look particularly appetizing. And I love lobster. "There’s no bread in this recipe, but never fear -- the butter didn’t go anywhere. It’s soaked in, brushed on, and baked into the ramen noodles for a toasty, buttery bun that’s crunchy on the outside and chewy on the inside. The lobster? That's the easy part. Just make sure it's fresh as hell and do your best not to eat it all while you're creating the bun." - rönin from Bookmarklet

11 Comics From the Comic Strip Switcheroo of 1997 | Mental Floss
"On April 1, most people are highly aware of the potential for pranks. One place they don’t typically expect hijinx, however, is in their daily newspaper—but on April 1, 1997, that’s exactly where the jokes came from. No, readers that day were not met with stories about fake crimes or phony local news, but when they turned to the page featuring the comics, they quickly noticed something was definitely off. That was the day of the great Comic Strip Switcheroo, a prank that featured 46 different cartoon artists swapping comics for the day, allowing them to imbue a brand new comic panel space with their own sensibility, humor, and drawing style." - rönin from Bookmarklet

Neat, I didn't know humpbacks ate fish. ""It's been the best-kept secret in New York for some time now and I think people are catching on," says researcher Paul Sieswerda. Sieswerda counts humpback whales in and around New York City, and they're on the rise. "We're just like the old whalers. Same methodology, high on the boat, looking out, trying to find a whale," he says." - rönin from Bookmarklet

A Cops take on Ferguson - http://www.dailykos.com/story...
Good read. "It's been exactly one year since I had to come to terms with the reality of my time in law enforcement. The Zimmerman acquittal seems like a lifetime ago. But it forced me to see what I didn't want to see. I know now that an honest discussion about our criminal justice system is radioactive because race is a factor nobody wants to face. But we need to face it and change it drastically. As a police officer I struggled with that reality. But I won't ignore it anymore. I believe in this country. I believe in the nobility of the profession. I know we are better than this" - rönin from Bookmarklet
