Merry Eggnog! ... and jeez, what's with the rude comments? It's the holidays. #relax - Mona Nomura
I think everyone knew exactly what you meant jeremy :) - Roberto Bonini
Jeremy, perhaps there's a misunderstanding. As a rule, FriendFeeders celebrate Festivus - maybe someone mistook this thread for the Airing of the Grievences ceremony. In any event, I got a lot of problems with you people! And now you're gonna hear about it! - John Craft

10 Reasons Why You Should Sign Up for FriendFeed -
10 Reasons Why You Should Sign Up for FriendFeed
I wish there was a AIR client for FF though. - barl0w
Twhirl works well for FF and it's an AIR client. - Bob M. Montgomery from twhirl
Great article. I want to learn more about the dumping the RSS feeder part. You should share some tips with that. Good stuff. - Amani
Love seeing FF through the eyes of someone who's not a traditional techie =) - FFing Enigma
Thanks Bob! - barl0w
A big part of why I wrote this post and have it running in my number one photo spot on Flickr right now is because I want more of my photography friends to sign up for the service. I *love* seeing photos here on FriendFeed and there are so many talented photographers who are not here yet who need to be. If we can get more of them to sign up, you guys will love their work. Of course there are many great photographers already on here but still a lot more who could join. - Thomas Hawk
I had to re-share this with all my FB friends. :) - Kelly W.
Still trying to figure out this whole friendfeed experience. I've had the account for a while and see lots of my twitter friends posting via ff - Demetri Mouratis
great piece! - mashable
Hi Demetri =) Different people use FF different ways because they want to get different things out of it. What are you hoping to get out of it? - FFing Enigma
Thanks for the tip. I had FF but really never 'got' what it was for. This helped! - Molly Nichelson from twhirl
Nice post Thomas. - Paul Wade
TH - for those photographers that are not on here, I put their flickr id into my Flickr Imaginary friend and see their images that way. However, it would be nice to get more photographers on here with their reader shares and such... - Justin Korn
This is definitely the best "Why Friendfeed" post I've seen. - Nick in Manila
Justin, agreed. I have a bunch of imaginary friend accounts for Flickr/Zooomr users as well. But it is nicer when they actually have accounts here, their work can be liked and commented to the larger FF community, etc. It seems like a few new people signed up today based on this post so I'm happy for that. Thanks Nick! - Thomas Hawk
I have AlertThingy FriendFeed Edition as well as AlertThingy v2 - Outsanity
Well said, Thomas. :) - Josh Haley
Nice list of reasons, all well thought out. While I'm at it, I wanted to tell you that I really like your new blog design too. - Karoli
Do most folks use FF in Standard or Real-time view mode? - Scott Loftesness
Only ever real-time.. it sits nicely on the second monitor as a Chrome App. - Greg Gannicott
Realtime here... - Chris Gulker
Did you just reformatted your post, Thomas? It a lot easier to scan through now. - Alan Le
Alan, a lot of times I post first and edit later. I probably shouldn't do that, but yeah, after posting I broke up some of the paragraphs better, bolded a few things etc., to make it easier to read. - Thomas Hawk
That's great. Make sure to check out Windows Live Writer for formatting blog posts if you haven't already yet. By the way, I love the new blog design. It's much better than when I helped you with the html way back. - Alan Le
Y'know... I must've spent two months randomly Tweeting things like "Will someone PLEASE explain to me why I should be using FriendFeed?" ... And then two days ago I start using my account (I'd had one for a while)... and NOW someone finally makes a post outlining why I should be here. You're two days late, Mr. Hawk, two days late. :P - Lou
actually, there's no search for Russian word forms on Frf. For me that looks as if there's no search at all - orie
hmmm.. I didn't know that orie. It seems like there is a lot of international users on FF, that's surprising to me. - Thomas Hawk
I've been trying to make sense of FF for months now, but every time I come away confused. As it is I feel like I'm drowning under all the social networking sites available. I use Twitter, Plurk and Facebook the most, and I use so I only have to post status updates once. How can I integrate FF into this without making things even more confusing? - Chris Taylor
oooh! I found the zooomr version of this post with no formatting and I whined somewhere else in my FF feed. This one with all the formatting is better :D - Tamar Weinberg
I really liked how you did a post on Flicker - MaryAnn Chick Whiteside
All good reasons but #10 is my #1 reason :) - Mark Krynsky
Mark - agreed. Also, Thomas ... very nice blog. I like. - Amani
@Tamar, the unformated text was a problem on the Zooomr image. Kristopher's fixed that bug now so text in descriptions on Zooomr photos should format correctly now. - Thomas Hawk
I wasn't using FF, but signed up after your post. Now let's see if it is really so useful ;-) - Marcel Körner
@Marcel also take into consideration who you are subscribed to. Aside from maybe four on your current sub list, they are not very active at all on FF. This will affect your experience here. - Carlos Ayala
Didn't know there was a "Porn" room on FF (see screenshot)... - David Young
how did you see that they are not active on FF? - Marcel Körner
David, the "porn" room on FriendFeed isn't all that active actually. I'm not really interested in porn per se, just thought it was a good group name to claim in the great FriendFeed land group name grab of 2008. - Thomas Hawk
@Marcel by their numbers, and the fact that i know most of them and can tell you first hand that they are not. (if you hover over people's names you will see their numbers) - Carlos Ayala
still hard to beat 5 years on for speed - Thomas Power
So true Thomas: people still can't as a majority read dynamic feeds. - Zu from AOD
it gives you an easy key to the way back machine - chaz2b

The Claim: Cold Temperatures Improve Sleep | New York Times -
The Claim: Cold Temperatures Improve Sleep | New York Times
“Studies have found that in general, the optimal temperature for sleep is quite cool, around 60 to 68 degrees Fahrenheit. For some, temperatures that fall too far below or above this range can lead to restlessness.” - Anthony Citrano from Bookmarklet
Finally a study I believe! If I don't sleep in a cold room, I can't sleep. - Shevonne
Makes sense to me. It gets warm enough some evenings to where I have a hell of a time getting a good sleep in. - Jonathan Hardesty
60-68 seems REALLY low though. Dang, I thought setting the a/c to 77/78 was low enough already. - ronin
@ronin No way. 68 for me. - Shevonne
I can believe this. I much prefer a cool room, whatever the season. - John (bird whisperer)
Definitely have to have a cool room to sleep properly. Few things worse than waking up in the middle of the night sweating (and no, not in a good way...) - FFing Enigma
I don't want to be baking hot, but I can't sleep if I'm too cold. I get cold easily, and then my hands and feet go dead and white. - Kamilah Reed (K. Gill)
I was just talking about this to a friend who asked me to split the cost of a hotel room. I had to explain how I always keep the room cool, while bundled under the blankets. - Anika
Side benefit of sleeping in a cold room: Wife is much much much cuddlier. - Wirehead
For those who, as I did, wondered how cold you feel at 60-68° F : its's a temeprature between 16° Celsius and 20° Celsius. - Zackatoustra
Yes! I love sleeping at about 65/66 degrees. Like LLL, I like to use the big comforter. I feel more comfortable and relaxed if I can breathe the cooler air. - Katy S
Sent this story to my wife, who likes it a bit warmer for the kids. - Hutch Carpenter
I thought it was just me. My sleep is much worse at 76-80+ temperatures. Normally I like 72-73 indoors, so 60-68 seems cool. Maybe it is better for sleep. :-) - Mitchell Tsai
Hmmm,I normally keep my house around 68 but then I'm British and used to cold old drafty houses - Sally Church
i think there is also cultural preferences/biases. when we lived in the UK we were amazed at how almost everyone turned their heat off completely at nite, thru-out the winter. when we came back, we began sleeping cooler, and love it. - Thom Kennon
Good point Thom, I find American houses far too warm and stuffy in the winter. - Sally Church
Sally, I'm with you: 68 is good, but 65 in the winter is AOK for me as well. I can wear socks and a snuggly shirt for less than I can heat the house to 70. - FFing Enigma
So there is a reason I use my ceiling fan at full speed at night. Interesting. - Ryan Massie
Ryan - indeed. love a good sleepybreeze. although your comment reminds me of how many hotel rooms and other rooms I go into where the ceiling fans are set incorrectly... I used to work in a lighting store so I notice such things. ;) [it's supposed to blow DOWN during the summer and UP during the winter] - Anthony Citrano
I'm always frustrated by the fact that hotel rooms do not have ceiling fans. I have trouble sleeping without the breeze. - Dennis O'Neil
I seem to be at the 68 degree end of the range, while my wife seems to be closer to the 60 degree end of the range for our optimal sleeping temperatures. :) - Blank of Two Blanks
I knew it! - Shey
LOL, silly Scott! In summer, the thermostat goes to 74 at night. In winter, I usually set it for about 67 during the day and 65-66 at night. Bundling up in blankets and comforter FTW! - Ordinarybug Heather
i believe it. - Carolyn Chan
i thought it was the opposite. - Kamamiya
You forgot to include Leif Parsons' name on the artwork for this webpage. - Jon Craig

Canadian food prices expected to rise due to U.S. drought - Canada - CBC News -
Canadian food prices expected to rise due to U.S. drought - Canada - CBC News
"Drought conditions in the U.S. are expected to boost Canadian food prices by as much as four per cent next year. Economists predict we'll be paying more for everything from pork to cereal. RBC economist Paul Ferley expects food costs will rise 2.5 to 3.5 per cent this year and three-to-four per cent in 2013. Extreme drought conditions in several U.S-Midwest states are causing corn and soybean crops to wither, and analysts say the effects will ripple through the food chain." - Stephan Planken from Bookmarklet
food price inflation an odd thing, we notice it here in UK - Winckel
Coming to stores in Canada soon. Some products have increased in price tremendously only to stay there. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I think it's going to be coming to everyone worldwide. Global climate change is really going to knock farmers for a loop. Who knows what to plant and when if the weather conditions are hard to predict and wildly different from anything we've had in our lifetimes? - Spidra Webster
In that respect, farming has always been a crystal ball profession. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
Yes, but there was at least useful lifetime experience and oral tradition to rely on in most eras. We're in a position where nobody really knows for sure WTF is going to happen agriculturally/horticulturally. - Spidra Webster

I just posted why FriendFeed will go mainstream:
Do you use Alert Thingy or any of the desktop apps for Friendfeed, or just keep the site open? - Patrick Jordan
I agree, FriendFeed will go mainstream if people start using more of these online services - Justin Yost
I just keep the site open and refresh a lot. - Robert Scoble
That was an awesome and relevant post! Thanks Rob! - Drew Lucas
I use twhirl for updates - Aura Mae from twhirl
I use twhirl, but it keeps moving the screen while I'm typing if there is an update. Hence these random bits of comment you get sometimes... - Rahsheen from twhirl
Using twhirl also. Just not enough screen space there, and things to roll off. Web page is easier. - Todd Jordan
Well said Robert, good article on why FriendFeed will go mainstream. - Mike Reynolds
FF is definitely gonna need a better interface if it IS going to be useable by non-geeks - Rahsheen
I was thinking the same thing, Jason. I don't think my mom would ever be able to handle FF, but I'm sure most geeks/social media addicts will love it and it will be a success - Rahsheen
my mom is not a good design test case i doubt anyone's mom is- the person who wants to be highly digitally connected, is. - Nathan Eckenrode
Robert, I know you didn't intend it, but your two part piece is a great friendfeed newbie tutorial. Thanks. Also, again don't know if it was intentional, but you forgot to include this friendfeed user: ;-) - Robert Stevens
Robert Stevens that user needs to engage people with the tools as adults who vote not speakat them like children who must be contained. - Nathan Eckenrode
Well, my mom is a programmer and uses online communications to coordinate her team, so I guess she is not the most common "mom" example :) - Rahsheen from twhirl
Nathan Eckenrode absolutely right about that user needing to engage. Check her friendfeed page. Not a single subscription. - Robert Stevens
and not everyone's mom is theprototypical bumbler that frequently gets assigned t that architypical user group - Nathan Eckenrode
it does make a good friendfeed tutorial, but I don't think it's going mainstream without a serious interface improvement. Its ass ugly! - Justin Flood @justinflood from twhirl
It's not even that it's ugly, it's that it's not really useable. I think it was created to provide as much as possible, but with the understanding that someone would create decent filters/clients for it for regular consumption. - Rahsheen
I this that whether FF goes mainstream depends mostly on us. - funkyboy
@PatrickJordan - using Twhirl client. - Todd Jordan
Well said. Not entirely certain I agree or disagree with your thoughts, but either way you do present a compelling argument for FF. I think the number one reason that will hold back adoption of a mainstream FF is the benefit to the average user. Unless that is articulated so the *average user* can understand, they will not see the desire to attach themselves to another service. The question at this point is what can, or should, FF do to attract average users? - Scott Jarkoff
@ScottJarkoff - well, partnerships would help. When you sign up for a service, if that service had a check box to add that feed to Friendfeed, it'd be a done deal. - Todd Jordan
@Todd: Agreed. But that begs the question, how would such a partnership benefit the service you're signing up for? There has to be some mutual benefit to a partnership like that. The obvious benefit is for FF, but what does everyone else gain through such an arrangement? - Scott Jarkoff
Scott: I'm not so sure that FriendFeed should worry TOO much about that right now. Instead, make the system of great utility to advanced users like me and you. If they make it easy for me to get rid of the noise and present it to everyone else, then it'll take off. - Robert Scoble
Why FriendFeed WON'T Go Mainstream: 1.) in the mainstream, people don't want to be THIS informed. That's probably equally good for them, and good for those of us who do want to be this informed! 2.) Steve Case subscribed, friended some people and then...didn't engage at all. He's my go-to guy for what the mainstream will eat up like ice cream. - Robert Seidman
Robert: But how does such usage translate over to the average user? Just because us mega-geeks can use FF, and more importantly we can understand it, does not mean that the average user will comprehend why it is useful to them. _Something_ needs to bridge that gap, no? - Scott Jarkoff
Last night I tried to explain FriendFeed and even Twitter to my friend the cop. While he has a Facebook profile, He Just. Didn't. Get It. The harder I tried to explain, the more he just looked at me like I just landed from Venus. - Capn' One Eye - adrift
FF can't go mainstream and I said as much in my comment on your blog post, which is awaiting moderation I guess :(. Main point - I could never explain FF to any of my non techy friends...never - Jennifer Van Grove from twhirl
Alert Thingy helps with the interface 'issues'. I think it has really helped with adoption / holding onto users - John Duff from Alert Thingy
@Geoff Longman - we are from Venus! ;-) welcome to my planet! - Susan Beebe
No doubt FF will go mainstream. It must over come the too many sites back lash, but over time this is a winner. - Russellreno
@patrick I just keep it open, until Firefox crashes! - Prolific Programmer
#humdaybumpday "5. It is freaking fast and much more reliable than Twitter. Today I’ve been putting dozens of Tweets into Twitter and they show up in FriendFeed BEFORE I can refresh the page. It is amazingly fast at gathering new stuff from Twitter. I have not found any other service as reliably fast." So true! - Ahmet Yükseltürk
Loic Le Meur
Friendfeed Is Going To Kill Google Reader, Not Twitter -
Interesting. Very interesting. - Warner Crocker
Very True Loic you made it very clear how easy it is to follow the comments!! - Paul
FF only works as a feed reader if you like "river of news". If you don't, then it isn't good enough. - Ian Betteridge from twhirl
I will not follow you on that one. A think both have very different missions. GReader really is a tools while FF is also a communication device - Eric Sausse from twhirl
it has already replaced it for, right now I'm going through some 4 days old posts in gReader, I tend to stop by there less and less - Dobromir Hadzhiev from twhirl
With out google reader or twitter, FF would not be what it is today. Remember it's a big circle jerk. I do not see FF killing google reader nor twitter any time soon. - Mike Fruchter
when will we be able to like comments? :) - Tim Hoeck
FF certainly doesn't have enough people talking about every single topic I subscribe to. I'm glad you guys aren't preachers at a church, the end of the world would have supposedly been last week. - Shawn Farner
For me, Google Reader is an even more essential part than Twitter of my FriendFeed experience. So ... as said before... FriendFeed will _not_ kill Google Reader or Twitter, etc. What is happening, however, is that often, the items in Google Reader are arriving after I've already read them via FriendFeed. - Louis Gray
These things always go on through June. Then we have the killing. Or something like that. - Michael Markman
Eric Sausse, you have a good point, you cannot add just a feed in Friendfeed, they first need to be registered there and added their feed. But FF could add that very easily, adding feeds from people who are not in FF. Then it would put pressure on them to finally jump into the bandwagon - Loic Le Meur
I agree with Louis & others - GR feeds FF for me. - R. Ferguson
You can "just add" a feed in FF -- check out the imaginary friends feature - Brian Sullivan
FF lets you publish your *filtered* google reader shared items, together with other stuff, to make an impression of you and your interests. That's how I see FF: almost a snapshot of a personality. For me GReader is a tool that you can use to filter items into your FF. - IanBlackburnold
Brian Sullivan, thanks I was wondering the imaginary friend thing! now I know. Here we go, no need for Google Reader anymore... - Loic Le Meur
yeah, I wont use FF for all of my feeds, I am subscribe to way too many and have already my routine with it. FF is more of a discovery + conversation experience for me - Gilbert Corrales from twhirl
Ian, right: I don't want people to form an impression of me based on my subscriptions to D:Listed, TMZ, The Superficial, and Perez Hilton, unless they are really really important, then I'll share the story. And now I've tipped my hand. But anyway: there's a community for feed discovery already: Tuluu. GReader + FF is about what's interesting from the feeds. - Mark Trapp
I'm with the GReader feeding FF crowd on this one. I use GReader to get the news I want and FF to share it and create conversation. FF is a great discovery tool but I still read a ton of stuff in my feeds before it appears on FF. The UI is set up better for conversation rather than just information digesting IMO. - Devlin Dunsmore
@devlin I agree... i'm finding it very hard to read pages and pages of link/comments on FF. - Gaurav Sikka
I hope FriendFeed doesn't kill Google Reader. I find them both vital but I couldn't substitute one for the other. - Kevin Fox
Again, this isn't going to happen. Services don't always have to exist just to kill other services. Especially ones that do different things - MG Siegler
its funny season on t'internets - Jamie
FriendFeed adds much value for me, but the only thing it's killing is time and maybe Scoble's marriage. I wish Loic would work on something more productive like getting Apple to make Seesmic videos work on the iPhone!:-) - Robert Seidman
We like having a choice for everything we do, but on the other hand, we expect (and sometimes hope) one choice to kill another. No wonder the world can't live in peace all together ;) - Turker Keskinpala
I never liked Google Reader's UI, but I feel right at home with FriendFeed. - James Rishabh Mishra
So true, but time flies too fast when im on friendfeed, i cant stop reading and sending messages! Great conversations though! - Scott Purdie
going to have to disagree ... couldn't possibly get through all my feeds via FF - just too many for the FF interface - timepilot
Google Reader is a feed reader, FriendFeed is a feed generator. Sorry, they serve completely different purposes (at least to me). No killing here. - dgw
friendfeed doesn't allow me to categorize sources, nor can I tag or flag specific feed items in a way that makes it easy for me to refer back to later. for al the hype about friend feed being where the "conversation", it seems like a really poor utility for that. I see that on this blog post alone, the "conversation" is distributed across friendfeed through google shared reader posts, twitter references, disquss comments. The techcrunch "Twitter" post is even a better example. fractured conversation. - bernie
agreed FF no replacement for reader - ben rogers from twhirl
When will folks realize FF is something NEW? IT isnt goign to kill much of the other stuff. - Soulhuntre from twhirl
would love keyboard shortcuts for FF too - Loic Le Meur
FF is useful as a human filter on the old echo chamber of tech but could never replace a feed reader. gReader shared items into FF is part of the signal for me, but, not a replacement. Much like RSSMeme and it's FF filter. And then there's the twisty bit where I read FF via a feed readier in the first place ... - Ashton
I'm still new to FF, but I like the search function that Google provides to even the oldest of the feeds. Not sure I would want the number of feeds I subscribe to coming through to FF. I like the combination of posts and conversation along with a few updates from other services like flickr or Digg. I think the 'conversation' would be seriously degraded with the addition of a number of RSS feeds. I would need to see how well FF handles growth before moving from Google Reader. - Brenda Young
I think you were right. #humdaybumpday - Ahmet Yükseltürk

We added a few features you might have missed recently: support for thumbnails ( and "Best of" for users/groups on the iPhone (
Screen shot 2009-10-29 at 3.05.19 PM.png
Rumors of FriendFeed's death are greatly exaggerated. (Thank you, Ben!) - Stephen Mack
Thanks, guys :) - Franc, a rememberer
Stephen, very happy to see new features like this, but I think the "death" part is the major users reducing their activity. I'd love to see some support from Facebook in promoting FriendFeed more to encourage those users to go back. Or maybe they don't want to? Regardless, bonus for me! Thanks Benjamin - you're awesome! - Jesse Stay
Jesse, fair enough but major users always did come and go. Some of the departees who left said they were doing so because there was no new development. Clearly not all development is halted. Last week Paul hinted that FF may receive a major new feature, and characterized his participation as "20% time" -- I'll take that. - Stephen Mack
I backed down off the all caps. The group "best of" is really useful, love it. - Stephen Mack
Stephen, I agree - I'd just like some confirmation that Facebook cares about all this so I can know whether to focus my efforts on Facebook or FriendFeed or both. - Jesse Stay
I noticed the best of on the iPhone the other day, wrote it out on a cake and then ated it. - Josh Haley
Thanks for the update Ben - AJ Batac
Jesse, I think you should focus where your users are focused. What do SocialToo users want? But if they want Facebook focus, you should still keep an eye on FriendFeed, since the future Facebook will look a lot more like FriendFeed. - Bruce Lewis
Bruce, I'm not sure we know that. - Jesse Stay
Paul Buchheit said the FB acquisition was attractive because of shared vision/direction. I would be surprised if a lot of that vision wasn't already embodied in this product right here. - Bruce Lewis

Teenage Binge Drinking: The Danger of Alcohol Poisoning -

Last week, the news broke out that Amy Winehouse died of alcohol poisoning.  Today we hear that 18-year old Griffin Kramer, son of former NFL Quarterback Erik Kramer has also died of excessive drinking.  I found this great article discussing ... - Shevonne
Ok so what is the normal drinks for a man ? The article sez 4-5 drinks for man. but nowwhere does it indicate duration.. I mean I have 3/4drinks every evening.. but its like over a 2-3 hr cycle.. - Peter Dawson
@Peter It's usually in a span of an hour. - Shevonne
in an hr ?? wow that seems that unfair to the alchohol.. how do heck does one down 4/5 drinks in a hr.. you supposed to drink to enjoy the drink !! - Peter Dawson
Downing shots, playing drinking games, sometimes loneliness and depression can cause you to excessively drink in a short span of time - Shevonne

I guess I'm with you now, Shey. After my initial login... I logged out. Now I can't login back. It's always showing the "internal app error"! GRRRRRRR - AJ Batac
arghh - Shey
I've contacted support, they replied 15 hours later and re-activated my account. Now all my setup, banks, cc and all info I've created are gone. I'm starting to hate Mint. - AJ Batac
Yuck. They said they would escalate my issue to the engineers. That was over a week ago. - Shey is awesome, and their app keeps me on track wherever I go - Shevonne

"Last week, I spent the afternoon visiting the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations in lower Manhattan. I brought a film crew and a sign that said "I Am The 1%, Let's Talk." The purpose was to understand what was motivating these protesters and try to educate them about what caused the financial crisis. I went down there with the feeling that much of their anger was justified, but broadly misdirected. Indeed, there were plenty of heated discussions. I did little more than ask how much of my earnings I should be allowed to keep. In return, I was called an idiot, a fool, heartless, and selfish. But when we started talking about the issues, it seemed like the protesters fell into two categories: those who generally understood and agreed that Washington caused this mess, and those who could only recite Marxist talking points. It was the latter who usually resorted to calling names once I pointed out the hypocrisy of their positions. They might shout, "the banks have taken over the regulatory... more... - Morton Fox from Bookmarklet

"Obviously, this is paradoxical. If they're blaming government for causing this problem, why would they suggest more government as the solution?" <-- Let's replay in slo-mo the slight of hand right there. So squeezing the choice down to a binary 'more' or 'less' government—that's the field of play? Sorry. Meaningful, strategic, and enforced regulations so one industry doesn't tank a whole nation(s). - Micah
Thank you Micah... I started to point this out... and just frustrated and deleted my comment. - SAM

Mt. Rainier casts a big shadow on Seattle's sunrise -
Mt. Rainier casts a big shadow on Seattle's sunrise
Show all
"Mt. Rainier has quite a few tricks up its sleeve for adding additional beauty to the Pacific Northwest, from the majestic snow-capped peaks, to the mysterious lenticular cloud displays. But another trick it pulls off during the fall and winter is to cast a big shadow on a brilliant sunrise. It only happens when the sun rises farther to the south as we head toward the winter solstice and has to be in the exact position to where Rainier blocks the first rays of morning light. Having a nice cloud layer around can sure act as a canvas as well!" - AJ Batac from Bookmarklet
I glimpsed Mt Baker through the fog this morning, wreathed in clouds with a red sunrise behind it. No shadow but magnificent sight anyway. - WoH: Professor MOTHRA

"Yes, we know that Metta World Peace was the first one to be voted off DWTS (why couldn't the 2010 Lakers be beaten so handily?), and that Glen Rice apparently had a "respectful" evening in 1987 with that "sweetheart" Sarah Palin (respectful? sweetheart? gag me with a bore spoon), and that D Wade got fiesty in the lockout negotiations (apparently he takes control in business meetings as well), but sometimes an NBA player ripe for satire gets a job moving furniture, and sometimes you have a comic book text creator, and it all comes together." - AJ Batac from Bookmarklet
