Stephan Planken
I am proud to announce that I am a new dad. Sophie Elizabeth Planken was born 12/12 @ 2334 - 5lbs 15oz.
Gratz!!!!! She's an itty bitty thing!!! Preemie? - rowlikeagirl
Thanks! She was actually a week late. It was difficult to go home after holding her for 4 hours but after a good nap I'll head back. - Stephan Planken
Confession: I started with FriendFeed just because it was one of the most user friendly ways to let my remote family know (nicely refreshed the screen). I wasn't following a lot of folks. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I hope her mom got a nap, too. :-) - laura x from iPhone
I'm glad I get to like this now, Stephan :) - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Me too. - MoTO Boychick Devil from Android
:-) This post (the memory) makes me happy. - Stephan Planken
However, I remember the drive home. I was so tired, leaving the hospital early in the morning. I was so incredibly tired that I am still wondering why I didn't just crash on the spare bed there. - Stephan Planken
In my mind I broke the 1.5 hr trip home up in short pieces. Leaving 16th Ave. Then try to make it to the highway. Then get past Airdrie. Then the next town. Then wondering if I should not just give up. And finally I made it home. Tanya called to make sure I made it and I optimistically told her I'd be back later that afternoon. I woke up following morning. - Stephan Planken
FIVE years ago! - Stephan Planken

First time here in a long time but since I heard the news of FF shutdown I had to visit once more. :( RIP - Capn' One Eye - adrift
How tiny wasps cope with being smaller than amoebas | Not Exactly Rocket Science | Discover Magazine -
How tiny wasps cope with being smaller than amoebas | Not Exactly Rocket Science | Discover Magazine
"Thrips are tiny insects, typically just a millimetre in length. Some are barely half that size. If that’s how big the adults are, imagine how small a thrips’ egg must be. Now, consider that there are insects that lay their eggs inside the egg of a thrips. That’s one of them in the image above – the wasp, Megaphragma mymaripenne. It’s pictured next to a Paramecium and an amoeba at the same scale. Even though both these creatures are made up of a single cell, the wasp – complete with eyes, brain, wings, muscles, guts and genitals – is actually smaller. At just 200 micrometres (a fifth of a millimetre), this wasp is the third smallest insect alive* and a miracle of miniaturisation. The wasp has several adaptations for life at such a small scale. But the most impressive one of all has just been discovered by Alexey Polilov from Lomonosov Moscow State University, who has spent many years studying the world’s tiniest insects." - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet
As they get smaller, insects can do away with many of their organs. The feather-winged beetles – twice as big as the M.mymaripenne, but still impressively tiny – have drastically reduced the size of their genitals, guts and breathing tubes. They have totally lost their hearts: at their size, diffusion is enough to carry liquids around their body without the need for a pump. - rowlikeagirl

Has anyone seen Prometheus yet? Like it? In 3D or 2D?
Yes. It was okay (expectations and nostalgia run high, maybe too high), in 3D which was well done. - Derrick
Watched it in IMAX/3D. Some parts I really liked. The initial scenes are stunning. I was trying to figure out why I wasn't more in like with it and narrowed it down to whenever the crew interacted in the space ship it kind of sucked, otherwise it was pretty good. Those plots points were very thin and unnecessary. It takes its time, so don't expect an action a minute type of movie. - Todd Hoff
Visually stunning, hated the story, the acting, the writing.... - Mary Carmen
I always go into movies with the LOWEST of expectations, which is my own particular animal. That said, I didn't hate it. The writing wasn't very good, but it's pretty. - Derrick
My expectations have been steadily decreasing with each review I read. Perhaps I won't be disappointed, then. - rowlikeagirl
Good question, Cristo. I think there's some correlation between the audience for a blockbuster (read: lowest common denominator) and the need for effects, explosions and action over plot or dialog. But I'm kind of cynical... - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
Turns out it was better than I expected. IMAX 3D was pretty awesome (seems better to me than movies I've seen in Real3D). Plot holes and open questions aside, I think the perception of this movie will improve over time. Michael Fassbender is a totally kick ass synthetic person. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)
So does this mean that Avater2 will kick arse ? - Peter Dawson

Pollution makes carnivorous plants go vegetarian -
Pollution makes carnivorous plants go vegetarian
"A study published in New Phytologist shows that this artificial rain of fertiliser is now making carnivorous plants lose interest in insect prey. Plants in lightly-polluted areas got 57 per cent of their nitrogen from insects; in areas that receive more nitrogen deposition, that figure fell as low as 22 per cent." - rowlikeagirl from Bookmarklet
Whoa. - Jenny H.
I think pollution most probably will affect to human for this conversion as well :) - Mahdi

Good show! Are you racing any of the 8 person hulls as well? - Mathew A. Koeneker
I rowed in an eight, but we didn't medal. :P In our defense, this was the first race for 5 of the 8 rowers plus the coxswain, so I was very proud of their performance. :) - rowlikeagirl
Keeping that in mind, y'all did great. - Mathew A. Koeneker from FFHound(roid)!
Good: Rowing in my 1st race tomorrow since late last year. Bad: Anyone have Crisco & a shoe horn so I can fit in my ORC unisuit? #chublife

high rising terminal — the linguistic term for the speech pattern where every statement sounds like a question :)
"Although several personalities in the popular media in Australia, Britain, and the United States have negatively portrayed the usage of [High Rising Terminal], claiming that its use is exhibiting a speaker's insecurities about the statement, more recent evidence (McLemore, 1991; Cheng et al., 2005; Warren, 2005) shows that assertive speakers, leaders of the peer group are more likely to use HRT in their declaratives than the junior members of the particular peer group. According to University of Pennsylvania phonologist Mark Liberman, George W. Bush began to use HRT extensively in his speeches as his Presidency continued." - Victor Ganata

Critic's Notebook: Farewell to 'House,' which remained true to itself -
"So, as we prepare for the series finale, it is worth pausing for a moment to salute the people behind “House,” namely creator David Shore and actor Hugh Laurie, two maestros who have pulled off a near-miraculous feat: After eight long and occasionally crazy seasons, their title character departs with all his amazing faculties and flaws intact. Dr. Gregory House is arguably the best and certainly the most influential character to appear on network television in the last decade. As played by Laurie, he answered the question many of us ask ourselves daily: What would life be like if you honest to God didn't care what anyone thought of you?" - Steve C, Team Marina from Bookmarklet
Does it end with House being diagnosed with lupus? - Melly from fftogo
IT'S NOT LUPUS - the one thing House has taught me. - Steve C, Team Marina
Except for that one episode where it was? - Soup in a TARDIS
Could it be sarcoidosis? - rowlikeagirl
my favorite eposide is the one where they diagnosed the illness at the last minute. - Mike Nencetti
That was a good one, Mike. I also liked the one where House realized what the disease was after having a conversation with Wilson about a completely unrelated topic. - Soup in a TARDIS
I think you people are verging on the edge of sarcasm. - Steve C, Team Marina

Hinterland is amazing. Montok Point and She Cries Your Name are my favorites. Have you liked any of the recent stuff? I've tried the classical album many times but just find it a little too slow. - rowlikeagirl
i dunno. i give his newer stuff the "let it grow on me" treatment but it just feels like he's revisiting his older work and not progressing. if i want classic William Orbit then i'll just put it on. i hope he finds some new veins to explore, tho, cos his music has the potential to be quite enthralling. - Big Joe Silenced
