Craigslist - Sword For sale WARNING might be haunted - $150
"This sword is from the 1700s. I got it at an antique store in my memaw's home town back in 1984. The person who sold it to me told me to be careful because there is a 90+% chance that it is cursed. Since it's been in my house my life has descended into pure chaos. My knitting group came over and they all said they could feel a strange energy in my sword room (I have a collection of over 100 swords. This is my only haunted sword). Since i got this sword, about 3 times a week a crucifix will fall off of my wall for no reason. I am 76 years old. I cannot have this cursed item in my house anymore. Please take it off my hands!!" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
Should probably nail those crosses to the wall better. - Joe

I don't mind the broadsword lightsaber. Allows for wider range of attack angles than one without a handle. http://t.co/ghsi6Z9ucF

right?? also I just think it looks freaking cooler. - Sir Shuping is just sir
I don't mind terribly, but I think there's a number of good reasons that broadswords didn't have blades on the guard. - Jennifer Dittrich
That's the issue I have, Jennifer. Serious design flaw. - Jed from iPhone
The problem is lightsabers cut from all directions. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson
Could come in handy in close combat. Sort of a lightsaber knuckle-duster. - Brent Schaus from iPhone
Considering that no Jedi or Sith has cut themselves with their own lightsaber on accident, I would assume a Force-manipulating being would be aware enough to not cut themselves. Also remembering too that Darth Maul triggered the second blade on his dual saber after fighting single blade. Follows that the handle blades could be switched on/off independently of the main blade. - Johnny from iPhone
If anything, Maul's dual saber was even less functional than the broadsword saber of ep 7. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Seemed to work ok against 2 Jedi. - Johnny from iPhone
In a scripted fight, anything can look great. But wielding two separate swords woulda been safer than one double-ended sword that has a high potential for cutting the wielder on almost any swing. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Wait, we're talking about non-scripted fighting here? You mean crystal-powered laser swords exist???1?1? ;) - Johnny from iPhone
There's a reason for-real double-ended swords didn't get popular. - Andrew C (✔) from Android
It can be lampshaded by the explanation that Darth Maul wasn't exactly the most intelligent Sith ;) - Victor Ganata from iPhone
To be fair, with a double ended sword, you are really limited with your angle of attack. A double-ended lightsaber has no drawback because you can't mess up really. I would imagine anyone that is really good with a staff could be good with a double-ended lightsaber... >.> - Chris Topher
The Verge pitched that if the guards were angled instead of at right angles, they'd be way more functional. http://www.theverge.com/tldr... - Andrew C (✔) from Android
Maul says he was just defending himself against Jedi, and that Qui-Gon Jinn looked like a devil coming at him. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

Chef-creator of General Tso’s Chicken honored - Taipei Times
"Chef Peng Chang-kuei (彭長貴), the inventor of General Tso’s Chicken (左宗棠雞), was named an “Outstanding Citizen” by the Taipei City Government yesterday for creating the iconic chicken dish. Peng apprenticed in the kitchen of the then-Republic of China government’s premier before fleeing to Taiwan with the Chinese Nationalist Party (KMT) government. The 95-year-old tottered as he received the award, expressing his thanks to the city in thickly accented Mandarin." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Peng said that he devised the dishv in the 1950s when he was asked to prepare a series of banquets for a visiting US admiral. “No dish could be repeated during the three days that we were entertaining the admiral,” Peng said. The chef said that after already having served several traditional chicken dishes, he decided to mix things up to meet the no-repetition requirement. He did this... more... - Jessie
"At the time, he had no idea that a dish invented to please a visiting admiral would become ubiquitous in Chinese restaurants in the US which it did after Peng opened a restaurant in New York City in 1972. “At the time, American-Chinese food was dominated by dishes like chop suey, which were invented earlier by Cantonese immigrants seeking to make a living,” Peng’s son, Chuck Peng... more... - Jessie

You Can't Achieve Equality by Expecting Everyone to be the Same
"Speaking up or talking about hard issues like racial bias or diversity, or calling for attentiton to inherent problems, makes it possible I'll misspeak and say something quotable where I don't want it. It's instead much easier to sit quiet and let other people fight their battles - to watch big conflicts and flareups remotely, trivializing someone else's experience, as something that's not happening here. But even in the 'burbs, and in our corporate offices, there are issues. We may not see unarmed men shot 12 times and killed in our hallways, but there are opportunities to bring down or build up our peers daily, and most of us aren't doing much to aid their quiet struggles." - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet

FriendFeed Bookmarklet Hosting: Micah W.'s ffbookmarklet v1.03 "Woot Tube" Release --  draggable version
Having trouble with the FF Bookmarklet in Chrome or other browsers? This is an updated version thanks to Micah and sizofroid. To make it easier to install, I'm now hosting it at my site, so you don't have to jump through hoops, you can just drag the updated version to your bookmark bar. - Stephen Mack from Bookmarklet
Yay! [update: uh, I don't see the actual bookmarklet on that page] - lris
Hmm, what browser are you using, Iris? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Chrome, Mac. Here's what I see http://screencast.com/t... - lris
Well that's weird. Chrome on Windows is working for me. When you go to the FF tools page, is the button there visible for you? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Yes it is - lris
Iris, have you disabled JavaScript by chance? I had a coworker test with Chrome on his Mac and it was working for him. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
No. And I did have adblocker running but I disabled it for that site. - lris
I love you. - Melly Claus
I love you too, Melly! - Stephen Mack
Iris, hold on, gonna try something to fix it. - Stephen Mack
I'm running Chrome on Windows if that helps, FYI. - Melly Claus
Iris, I changed how the image for the button was hosted. Did that fix it for you? - Stephen Mack
Yay! I see it! - lris
Yay! Hmm, you must have some pretty high levels of security set. All I changed was copying the image for the button from FF's server to mine. - Stephen Mack
I am not aware of extra high levels of security. Maybe I'm accidentally extremely careful. :) - lris
I'm sure it's no accident. :) - Stephen Mack
Hopefully no one else is having any trouble? - Stephen Mack
I added the older versions at the bottom, just in case there are any compatibility issues. - Stephen Mack
When I saw "draggable" I first thought it meant the popup can be dragged around within the page, to make it easier to select images that it would ordinarily be covering up...like this old one: http://pastebin.ca/1323845 I am still using that one, but installed as a dedicated CustomButton. If you have the Firefox add-on installed, it's easy to install the button from here: http://appsapps.info/ff... What I would like to have is a combo of all the goodies into one awesome button. - April Russo
April, that's a cool idea. I couldn't get the one you linked to work for me, though. I wonder if we can beg Micah to add that functionality into his version. - Stephen Mack
I just did. ;) - April Russo
Ah! I don't know about CustomButton, though. What is taht? - Stephen Mack
Which one could you not get to work? The 1st or 2nd link? The 1st is instructions for modifying the official bookmarklet to use the drag & drop popup. The 2nd link requires the CustomButtons add-on installed in Firefox. https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US... You'd just click the link on my page to install the button, then right click a Firefox toolbar, go to... more... - April Russo
2nd link. But I see what you mean, it requires the add-on. Does it work on Chrome or IE, or just Firefox? - Stephen Mack
Compatibility: Mozilla Firefox 1.5+ SeaMonkey 2.0+ Mozilla Thunderbird 2.0+ Mozilla Sunbird 0.8-0.9 / Calendar 1.0pre KompoZer 0.8b1-0.8b3 Flock 0.7-1.5+ and Pale Moon (which is what I am using) - April Russo
Bump due to recent discussion. Micah, it'd be great to incorporate that feature from April's. Heard that at least one user is having trouble with the new bookmarklet. How's it working for others? (Works great for me! My default browser is Chrome.) - Stephen Mack
Working with Chrome, I'd say it works about 95% of the time really well. There are a couple sites where it just doesn't want to pull in the images, and sometimes the NY Times is tweaky, but both seem related to recent layout changes. - Jennifer Dittrich
Mine still doesn't work. I wonder if one of my plugins is breaking it. I've taken to browsing in Chrome and copying the URL over to IE when I want to post something to FF. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
It doesn't work for me: in Firefox (my default browser) it just brings up an empty box. As DB said, it might be a conflict with an extension, but I'm not sure which would be causing it. - John (bird whisperer)
First off, thank you for this work. I'll test it out in a bit. I have a lot of browsers to test in, and I use XMARKS so it should just pop to all my different browsers. - Eric - ill subliminal

Decoding the Lost Diary of David Livingstone
Decoding the Lost Diary of David Livingstone
"The last decade of David Livingstone’s life did not go well for the famed Scottish missionary and explorer. In 1862, his long-neglected wife, Mary, came to join him in Mozambique, but she quickly contracted malaria and died. Nevertheless, he continued on his mission to find a navigable route through the River Zambezi. But in 1864, seven years before his famous run-in with Henry Morgan Stanley, Livingstone was forced to give up and return to Britain after most of his men abandoned him or succumbed to disease. He quickly fell from public grace as word got out about his failure to navigate the river. Eager to redeem his reputation, he returned to Africa two years later, this time in search of the source of the Nile River. But yet again, his assistants soon began deserting him, and added insult to injury by taking all of his food and medicine with them. Starving and crippled by pneumonia, cholera and cutaneous leishmaniasis, Livingstone had no other choice but to turn to Arab traders for... more... - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"The diary begins on March 23, 1871. Forced to team up with the Arab slave traders due to his deteriorating health, Livingstone found—to his dismay—that he was actually beginning to like these men. “The Arabs are very kind to me, sending cooked food every day,” he wrote in April. He told them about the Bible, taught them how to make mosquito nets and drank fermented banana juice with them, which he swore off in the next day’s entry." - Mark H
"On July 15, however, Livingstone was abruptly woken from his stupor. The traders—his friends—went into a busy nearby market and began randomly firing guns into the crowd and burning down surrounding villages, killing at least 300 people, many of them women and children. Livingstone had never witnessed such an atrocity before, and he was “crushed, devastated and spiritually broken,”... more... - Mark H

I fucking HATE thieves. My younger brother in Kentucky, one of the best people I know, had his 2000 Jeep Cherokee stolen. He went out to his Jeep before work and it was gone. He locks it religiously. He bought the Jeep off Mom & Dad and he's babied it, worked on it, painted it. I hope the thief gets his testicles chewed off by a large dog.
I am not even kidding. - Jed from iPhone

Wildlife: Feds say genetic testing confirms that wolf near Grand Canyon is from the Northern Rockies | Summit County Citizens Voice
"Federal biologists say that, based on a genetic analysis of scat, they’re now 100 percent sure that the wolf-like animal spotted near the North Rim of the Grand Canyon is in fact a wild Rocky Mountain gray wolf. The confirmation clarifies that this gray wolf is fully protected under the Endangered Species Act, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service announced. Biologists have been tracking the canid since early October and were able to collect scat samples in early November. USFWS biologists have also been trying to capture the animal to collect blood and replace the radio collar. Those efforts were unsuccessful and have been suspended due to cold weather, “as the primary concern is the welfare of this animal,” according to the agency. Any future capture efforts will be for collar and transmitter replacement, and the wolf will be released on site." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Adorable Ad Might Actually Make You Care About the Plight of British Hedgehogs | Adweek
"The cuteness factor is awwwf the charts in "Saving Harry," a two-minute animated film by Wildlife Aid U.K. that follows the journey of the titular hedgehog from suburbia back to the woods where he belongs. An adorable hedgehog puppet moves through an amazingly well-realized illustrated world. Every element is superbly crafted, from Harry's pale reflection in the puddle to the grimy, discarded food tins and liquor bottles in the alley, and ultimately, the soft sod of the forest floor and ringed bark of the towering trees. "I'm Seeing Stars," the piano-based tune on the soundtrack, performed by the Elephant Rooms, creates just the right mood—slightly somber, but hopeful, too. Some versions of the clip include the vocal track, and the singer sounds a lot like Kate Bush. You can buy the song on iTunes, with all proceeds supporting the cause." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

"Prior to 1875’s Page Act and 1882’s Chinese Exclusion Act, there were no national immigration laws. None. There were laws related to naturalization and citizenship, to how vessels reported their passengers, to banning the slave trade. Once New York’s Castle Garden Immigration Station opened in 1855, arrivals there reported names and origins before entering the U.S. But for all pre-1875 immigrants, no laws applied to their arrival. They weren’t legal or illegal; they were just immigrants. Moreover, those two laws and their extensions affected only very specific immigrant communities: suspected prostitutes and criminals (the Page Act); Chinese arrivals (the Exclusion Act); immigrants from a few other Asian nations (the extensions). " - Andrew C (✔)
"This might seem like a semantic distinction, but it’s much more; the phrase “My ancestors came here legally” implies that they “chose to follow the law,” yet none of these unaffected immigrants had to make any such choice, nor had any laws to follow." - Andrew C (✔)
"The 1892 opening of Ellis Island didn’t change these fundamental realities. Ellis arrivals had to wait in line and answer a list of questions, and could be quarantined if they had a communicable disease or were visibly insane. But if they weren’t in those aforementioned few illegal categories, they still weren’t affected by any law, made no choice of how to immigrate. Moreover, many arrivals during this period came not through Ellis but across the borders, which were unpatrolled and open." - Andrew C (✔)
"Only with the 1920s Quota Acts did Congress establish national immigration laws encompassing most arrivals. But those acts were overtly discriminatory, extending the Exclusion Act’s principles by categorizing arrivals by nationality and drastically limiting certain groups; South Carolina Senator Ellison Smith put it bluntly: “It seems to me the point as to this measure is that the time... more... - Andrew C (✔)

That's ok, There was this big glass cookie jar than nobody in the family could identify what animal it was supposed to be, for almost four decades. There was disagreement over whether it was an elephant (based on its feet and tail) or a pig (based on it's face) or some sort of freakishly weird combo animal (which was the most acceptable answer). It wasn't until it was finally passed down to me that I got a chance to see it again, and figured out it was a hippo. - April Russo

It's a rhino who lost his horn in an unfortunate poaching incident but lived to tell the tale. - Melly Claus

Actually, it just looks like a pig with elephant feet. - April Russo
It's clearly got a horn, but I'm usually looking at it in semi-darkness before we've turned on the lights in her room.
