Johns Hopkins doctors remove baby's brain tumor that contained teeth -
Yowza. *shudder* "Doctors at Johns Hopkins Hospital have removed a rare tumor that contained several fully grown teeth from a baby boy's brain. The tumor was found in the then-4-month-old from West Virginia in 2012 after a pediatrician noticed that his head was unusually large for his age. Doctors wrote about the findings in an article that appeared this week in the New England Journal of Medicine. The discovery could someday help researchers trying to cure diseases or grow new organs, medical experts said." - rönin from Bookmarklet
Whoa. - Tamara J. B.
wow - Elena
I see teeth in ovarian tumors but can't fathom the brain!! - Janet
thats really weird. Teeth in brain ? - Peter Dawson
If you'd told me four years ago that I'd be a librarian, and living in Washington DC (after living in New Orleans for three years), I'd ask you where on Earth did you get that crack you were smoking.
I'm very happy being a librarian, and living in DC, btw. - Derrick
(Though I do miss my California tacos...) - Derrick
Gas station tacos await you in Rockville. - Zamms
I was just thinking it might be time again for that. - Derrick
If you told me four years ago (or ever) that I'd be living in my hometown and have a kid, I would have asked the same thing. I am happy about the kid and ambivalent about the rest. - laura x
Life can take you to crazy places, for sure. - Derrick
Me? Teaching library school? NFW. - RepoRat
Me living in Chicago? Sure, okay. Living with a boy for 18 months already? No way. - Hedgehog
Me, doing the same goddamn thing? Great. Love it. ._. (Happy for you, Derrick!) - Steele Lawman
if you were in Toronto. its easy just ask Mayor Rob Ford .. he knows where to get crack ! LOL - Peter Dawson
Four years ago I hadn't even met Uli, so if you'd told me I'd get married? Skeptical wouldn't even begin to cut it. But yeah, very happy with where not-knowing got me. - Kirsten
If you told me 4 years ago I'd be making real money with my computer, with a real job (not by developing Windows apps), I'd be really confused. - April Russo
I live WHERE IT SNOWS. How the fuck did that happen?! Oh, right..... - Alix May
;-) - Derrick
I say that a lot too, Amber. Fell in love with a Detroit girl. - MoTO: Tufted Coqeutte from Android
I need opinions - is this guy hot? - http://louisehbradley.files.wo...
I need opinions - is this guy hot?
This is part of my job, btw. Teehee! - Melly
Not at all. - Anika
I wouldn't kick him out of bed. - Kristin
He has the eyes. - Johnny from iPhone
Hotness is in the eye of the bedazzler. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
I'd say yes. - Bren
Who watches Banshee? What do you think of Anthony Starr? - Melly
I don't think so. - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
I don't think so either. If I had my way it'd be all Sammy with an occasional Mark Wahlberg. - Melly
0.o - LilaLaMarea from Android
Yes. :) - Jenica from iPhone
I must be too old, the half whatever mess on his upper arm/chest are a turn-off for me. :( - Janet
LOL Janet, the arms and ink I do find attractive ;o) - Melly
The eyes are good. He'd be hot in a sharp suit. - Betsy
I'd say he's an above-average looking guy, but based on this photo, I wouldn't classify him as "hot" - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I wouldnt kick him out of bed :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
I would; I don't want sand all over my blankets. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
is this not David Beckham ? - Peter Dawson
It's The Commando! He's a personal trainer. - Melly
I enjoy the pose and the smile. - Deborah Fitchett
I'd say he's way hotter than me. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
But that might be because of the sun on his bare back versus me being in an air conditioned office. He's clearly not as attractive as I am. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Stephen, I'd do you before I'd do him. He's not my idea of fun (though he does have lovely eyes, but then again so do I). - Hookuh Tinypants
Hookuh, you got WAY more than just your eyes going for ya! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
^ What Stephan said! - Melly
I think he would be if he wasn't trying so hard. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich from Android
I don't know...haven't heard him talk (i am more attracted to brains than physical appearance) - April Russo
I vote for hot, just based on the photo alone. - Corinne L
Nope. Not hot. Or at least he's not my type. :^) - Friar Will
Stephen Mack
Damn. Someone broke into my car between 5 and 7 at work tonight. Smashed the driver side window. Stole some random crazy stuff like headphones and toiletries -- but left my wallet and its cash alone. Uh, what? (EDIT: All fixed now, see
Oh, wow, I am so sorry :( - Jennifer Dittrich
This sucks mate. - Mo Kargas
What a crapper. I'm glad they didn't take your wallet. - Anika
It could have been so much worse! Why steal my expired Zoo membership cards but leave my wallet behind? They ransacked through the glove compartment and various other compartments, saw the wallet, but didn't take a thing out of it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
oh noes!!!! - Mary Carmen
That really sucks. As for the smalltime stuff, I've had that happen to my car before. I think it's homeless folks looking for things they find useful but so small that if they get caught it's clear they weren't after money. The odds are they won't get caught so it's worth taking the risk for them. My car was broken into and a flashlight and travel alarm clock were taken. Nothing else. - Spidra Webster
Oh geez. :-( - John (bird whisperer)
GAH! People suck. - Melly
:( - Micah
man, that sucks! Did you report it yet? - imabonehead
That is terrible. - Eric - Back to the Grill from iPhone
Oh no! :(((( So sorry, Stephen! - Tamara J. B.
Dang - Marie
Duuuude. I'm sorry. :( Also, why do you leave your wallet in your car?!?! - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
Damn, Stephen, that sucks thoroughly. - Akiva
Aw, Stephen, I'm sorry. - Anne Bouey

:-( I'm sorry, Stephen. - vicster: full-bodied
Ugh, that sucks. - Kristin
Sorry to hear that Stephen. :-( - Stephan Planken
Ugh :-( - Amit Patel
Dang - Josh Haley from Android
BOOOOOO!! That sucks. Happy 15th anniversary! - Louis Gray
Do not like. :(. Where were you parked? Out by TiVo Central? Rain damage? - Ken Gidley from iPhone
:( - Eivind
Oh no! - Katy S
Sorry to hear. This happened to me once. Whoever it was didn't take my wallet that was left in prominent display, but did take the few pennies in change that were rolling around, and my sweaty gym clothes. Weird. - Uli
Ima: I did report it through our on-site security guards. Police declined to investigate in person. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Lisa: Good question with no good answer. I normally wouldn't but I didn't need it on me today, so left it there (hidden from view) because I didn't feel like carrying it around. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Ken: Yeah, boonies by TiVo Central where I normally park. Probably a bit of rain damage -- hard to tell with all the glass everywhere. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Louis: Thanks but not for a few more days. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Spidra and Uli: It is so weird. There must be a logic they're following but I cannot fathom it. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Thanks for the support and kind words, all. I feel fortunate to still have my wallet. The window can be easily replaced and nothing of great value was taken. Just inconvenient. It did make me late for a date, but she was very flexible about changing plans and helping me out. We had a good time. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Boooo. At least you're safe. It's just a drag. - Gabrielle from FFHound(roid)!
bastards :( - Jonathan Disher

I am so sorry Stephen. :( - Janet
That sucks. Sorry to hear. - LB's Bubba. The other 1
They didn't take your garage door opener, did they? - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Dude that sucks. =( - Yvonne from FFHound!
That's awful...I'm so sorry Stephen.... - furrworld
Sorry to hear this. :-( - YvonneM
:( that sucks - Sir Shuping is just sir
Curtis, nah, I don't have a garage or an opener. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Jerks! I'm sorry this happened to you, Stephen. I know how it feels. :( - Jenny H. from Android
Damn :((( - Iain Baker
Whut. Not cool. - Steven Perez
I'd be extra vigilant around the house. If you think they looked at your wallet at all, they might have your address. - vicster: full-bodied
Good grief! :/ - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
bogus... though now I'm hella curious what lucky lady scored a date with The Mack. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich
Noooo! :( - Ross Miller
Argh, bad, bad :) - ҀҾѦ
That blows!! Sorry!! - Georgia
Not cool, though I'm glad your wallet was left intact. I'm intrigued as to why someone wouldn't steal cash. Spidra's insights are fascinating. - Corinne L
Vicster, good thinking and I had the same worry. Fortunately my brother-in-law is living with me and is there during the hours I'm not there, so I'm not too worried. - Stephen Mack
T-Ra: :)))) - Stephen Mack
Just got off the phone with my Farmers agent (my friend Al, a great guy and long-time family friend), who arranged for a glass company to come out today at noon to TiVo to clean out the glass and replace the window. I do have a small deductible, but he arranged a discount, so my out-of-pocket cost will be under $100 to get this taken care of. Could be worse! - Stephen Mack
Corinne and Spidra: The hard part for me to understand still is when someone causes hundreds of dollars of damage (like when they smashed Spidra's radio) but only pockets items worth $20 or less. I guess that's why New Yorkers in the '80s and '90s would leave their cars unlocked and/or post "no radio in car" signs. - Stephen Mack
I love the collective wisdom here, things I never knew nor considered. Most of our smash and grab car events are not homeless but those needing things to sell for drug money. - Janet from FFHound!
Perhaps they were looking for drugs? - Todd Hoff
ouch ,.. they must be just vandels.. if they had taken Wallet and cash.. then thats a bigger felony - Peter Dawson
They must have been high....and missed the wallet - تایغر فلاکت
What a lousy thing to happen! Sorry to hear it. - Son of Groucho
:-( - Bruce Lewis
Damn. Maybe when they realized who they were stealing from they fled in terror. - Jim: with more caffeine! from iPhone
It's true I know martial arts. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Now I'm hearing Keanu Reeves saying "I know kung fu." hee hee - Corinne L

Um, HELLO?!?! I'd like to hear more about this DATE you mentioned! :) - Lisa L. Seifert

Greg, I noticed that T-Ra noticed. :) - Stephen Mack

Opps ...I slipped up on one of my old British style school days vernacular's !! :(- I told someone "why do you always come at the fag end of things" ... well old habits die hard..
Decipher for me the meaning. - Janet from FFHound!
its an idiom "the last part of a period of time, usually the least interesting or least exciting part" - Peter Dawson
Thats a new one on me. - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android
the other two that generally slip by me is "cock up" and "shut your gob" .. - Peter Dawson
Those two I know, being common hereabouts, but ive never heard fag-end. The end of a fag is the dog-end, but in the context of your post, I'd more likely say arse-end. - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android
I've heard fag-end in the sense Peter used it. End of a cigarette is the butt or stub. - Pete
@Pete, yes Fag= cigg. in late school days that how we called it. - Peter Dawson
I smoke fags, throw the dog ends on the ground and hope I'm not at the arse end of the bus queue :-) - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android
@Slippy , Cor Blimey !! - Peter Dawson
Actually this happened in one of my meetings.. it kinda just slipped out to co-worke !! In in the Canada , it could be misconstrued as a HR issue . !! - Peter Dawson
Thats how I actually talk, although I only say cor blimey when I'm doing dick van dyke impersonations. - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android

"In 1982 the French international Jean-Pierre Adams went to hospital and was given anaesthetic that should have knocked him out for a few hours. 32 years later, he has yet to awake" - Iain Baker from Bookmarklet
Wow thats really sad. I never know about this case.. Thanks for sharing ! - Peter Dawson
Amazing that the hospital cannot contribute more after their malpractice. Elsewhere after a successful lawsuit there would have been funds to cover a professional nurse and care, rather than rely on the wife. - Nils Sandin

Behaviorists: Dogs feel no shame despite the look - SFGate
"LOS ANGELES (AP) — The next time you start shaking your finger and shouting "Shame on you!" because your dog chewed up your favorite fuzzy slippers, just remember that no matter how guilty your dog looks, it doesn't know what your rant is about. Behaviorists insist dogs lack shame. The guilty look — head cowered, ears back, eyes droopy — is a reaction to the tantrum you are throwing now over the damage they did hours earlier." - Morton Fox from Bookmarklet

Students only know a fraction of math teacher's good deeds -
"No one saw the superhero in mild-mannered Clark Kent. Jim O'Connor keeps his students fooled too. In his algebra and calculus classes at St. Francis High School, he is stern — no excuses, no coddling. "If you look at the clock," said senior Michael Tinglof, who had O'Connor in his freshman year, "you're on his bad list for the rest of the class." The 70-year-old teacher's look also is all business: spine straight, close-cropped silver hair. When he cracks a joke, he's so deadpan that the boys often miss it, senior Pat McGoldrick said. "Like in our class, he'll put a problem up on the board and then someone will say, 'Oh, can you do it this way?' And then he'll respond, 'Oh yeah, I'll just do this and I'll just change that and I'll do all this extra work and I'll get the same answer. It's totally worth it.' " Until they get accustomed, Pat said, "everybody thinks he's being really mean." For the record, O'Connor embraces the reputation.

Happy Day! Today I paid off a loan I've had for about 15 years. It was mostly the Ex's bills and b.s. He stuck me with it. Everyone told me to file for bankruptcy. Even when I was really sick, driving to work with one eye open....I made sure this freakin bill was paid. Done.*snoopy dance*

The international nature of the NHL means I have several Olympic teams to cheer for. The home team has provided players for team Canada, Sweden, Switzerland and USA.
There is a pecking order, however. :) - Ken Morley
Datsyuk and Kovalchuk were amazing, but T. J. Oshie was lights-out in USA's 3-2 overtime win! There are no YouTube clips of his amazing shootout performance however, because... the Olympics. :( - Ken Morley
Wow, the U.S. women outshot Sweden 70-9! Six goals and Wallner & Hasson still had a combined save percentage > 91 percent! - Ken Morley
I feel ya. I'm Canada all the way, but there's a Schaus in goal for the U.S. Womens' team... so... you know... family :) - Brent Schaus

Do you guys post junk on your office doors, too?
Just freedom to read posters - DJF from Android
what is this office door you speak of... - holly #ravingfangirl from iPhone
I have a corkboard on my door with various random things on it, also a corkboard on the wall that holds my standard weekly schedule and a few other bits of randomness. - RepoRat
We don't really do the "door" thing here (no idea why, and we totally should) but I have a kickass bulletin board inside my office: - Catherine Pellegrino
Catherine, I think I'm the only one here who decorates his door like it was his tenth grade locker. - Steele Lawman
Faculty in other departments totally do (let me tell you about History and Math...) but for some reason the library doesn't. Maybe it's because our doors are even more all-glass than yours? Anyway, I should start. - Catherine Pellegrino
I've got a door. But my walls don't go all the way to the ceiling - DJF from Android
the Practical Macrame thing is cracking me up. - Marie
Marie, that's courtesy of my friend and colleague, Jessy. I added the word balloons: "Boom." and "It's so practical." - Steele Lawman
I should start posting scans of books we've weeded. - Catherine Pellegrino
My door is never shut, so no. - laura x
You have offices? With doors? This is an advantage to being a librarian that isn't trumpeted enough! - Spidra Webster
I could maybe to the outside of my doorless cubicle... - Derrick
A few of us do at my library, but not many. - laura x
ya we post /pinup junk around our desk ( at least I do !!) - Peter Dawson
Yeah, sometimes. I need to add Academic Coach Taylor to the mix. - kaijsa
No. I'd like to but it feels weird. Maybe when they move us before/during/after the renovation. - Hedgehog

Ah, nothing like seeing you have a stain on a shirt that was fresh from the dryer. After you've been wearing it for most of the day. (At least I haven't left the house yet.) Looks to be oil/grease or something like that. I wonder if it's too late or I should just plan on buying a new shirt?
Apply the detergent directly to the stain and see how it goes. - Spidra Webster
Happen to me the other day. I noticed a giant yellow stain on my shoulder after driving around SoCal for 6 hours. - Anika
You could try to use baking soda and dish soap to get the stain out. It's worked for me in the past. - Tamara J. B.
nothing like a tide stick for that ..have one in my office drawer - Peter Dawson
I've had good luck applying Shout to grease/food stains, working it in a bit, then applying a paste of OxyClean/water, and working that in. Then launder as usual. I'm 3 for 4 or so... - Ken Gidley
Woman wins right to masturbate at work | Mental Healthy -
Woman wins right to masturbate at work | Mental Healthy
I hope she has her own office. "Brazilian woman Ana Catarian Bezerra, has won the right to masturbate and watch pornography in the workplace. The 36-year-old accountant, suffers from a chemical imbalance that triggers anxiety and hypersexuality. She is said to need to masturbate for at least fifteen minutes every two hours. The condition, that requires the sufferer to orgasm to relieve stress and anxiety, caused Ms Bezerra difficulty at work. At the peak of her condition she was having to masturbate up to forty-seven times a day." - rönin from Bookmarklet
47 times a day?? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Amateur. - Akiva
wow. That just seems like it'd be...painful. - ellbeecee
Wow. thats one sickness.. that I wish I had .. !! - Peter Dawson
Wow! I remember a Lifetime movie on something like this. She suffered a brain injury when she was in a car accident, and after that, she couldn't control the impulse of wanting to have sex. However, she just learned how to control it. - Shevonne
Oh just read this ..."Now on on a variety of tranquillisers, Bezerra reportedly (only) has to masterbate around 18 times a day." - Peter Dawson
Fifteen minutes every two hours? This would make for ... interesting faculty meetings. "AYE! AYE! AYE!" - Julie Kane
so that means in an 8hr working day.. she is busy doing it for at least 2hrs.. so only 6hrs of productivity ? - Peter Dawson
Let's be honest, anyone posting here during work hours isn't putting in a full 8 out of 8 hours of productivity ;) Basically, instead of checking Facebook and Twitter, she's watching porn and masturbating. She might actually end up being happier and more productive than the average employee. - Victor Ganata
Why does it still take her 15 minutes? This is what's bothering me. Ultimately. - Julie Kane
I'm guessing that masturbating that much has decreased sensitivity over time, requiring more work to get the same job done. - Hookuh Tinypants
I'm also guessing she no longer enjoys it and finds it a chore. - Stephen Mack
It would bum me out if I had to crack one out 18 times a day, every day. I imagine it has long-term psychological impacts. - Hookuh Tinypants
Couldn't find a reputable source for this story. This Brazilian site debunks it: - Spidra Webster
well I want to know does she have a seperate room for herself or is it like open office env - Peter Dawson
Good find, Spidra. Fake story. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
(see all the librarians, including myself, fail at information literacy. :) ) - ellbeecee
Um, what the what? - Jed
While the article may be fake, medical conditions of the class PGAD are quite real. - Micah
Yeah, there was a woman in Florida who committed suicide because of PGAD - Victor Ganata
Heh, apparently the story about Ana Catarian Bezerra is pretty old, though. This Spanish page found the guy who started it :D - Victor Ganata

Reindeer get fluorescent antlers to reduce roadkill - Technology & Science - CBC News
"Anne Ollila of the Finnish Reindeer Herder's Association says the antlers of 20 reindeer have been painted with various fluorescent dyes to see how the animals react and whether the paints are resistant to the harsh Arctic climate. If successful, animals with glittering antlers will be free to roam Lapland — a vast, deserted area in northern Finland where herders tend to some 200,000 reindeer. Ollila says reflectors and reflective tape have proven unsuccessful as reindeer have torn them off — and road signs warning drivers of roaming reindeer often are stolen by tourists as souvenirs." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

I love you forever, Windows chkdsk utility! You have saved my phone's corrupted micro sd card and all my data! <3 x infinity!
Times sure have changed. Back in my pre-linux days I would throw a drive away before using chkdsk. Thankfully, back then, Norton Utilities was a thing, so life was good :-) - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android
Well Norton Utilities was the only thing that we had in the old DOS days :)- - Peter Dawson
Pretty much, yeah :-) Chkdsk was there as part of MSDOS, but nobody could figure out how to make it NOT destroy whatever drive you used it on. That wasnt the least of the OS's shortcomings, but thankfully aside from the awesomeness of Norton, JP Software's 4DOS was also a thing then, and for anything else there was ASM and my big book of IRQs, so life was still good :-D - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android
But yeah, chkdsk /f. The f was supposed to mean "fix". If memes as we know them had been a thing back then, people everywhere would've been all "Dammit Chkdsk, you had ONE job!" - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android
yes I i agree, ASM and DEBUG was the best, you could wreck a disc by debug at offset 000xh of th desk. YEs debug was a good tool for trace mode and get the password of wordstar and Lotus 123 pwd protected files :)- good old real hacks in ASM and HEX mode :)- - Peter Dawson
Never had a problem with chkdsk, had them with fdisk stuffing up partitioning - Mo Kargas
*shudders* Oh, I'd forgotten fdisk. Norton to the rescue...again! :-) - Slippy: Potato Croquette from Android
Yeah Norton was good, can't say the same of their software now though. - Mo Kargas

Just noticing how the brown markings on it's head look a little like a nose. If he were sitting in a bush, he'd totally look like the Cheshire Cat sans body. :) - Ken Morley

I wonder if anyone has ever had moral objections to eating fungi because their cells are just like animal cells except for the chitin cell walls?
I'm going to go ahead and say "Dude, just eat that mushroom and chill out" ;) - Johnny from iPhone
Rhetorical ques !! . Its like asking ; do I have any moral objections to you having psychedelic visions - Peter Dawson

The dog seems to be thinking "There goes the neighborhood." - Spidra Webster
I'm guessing the deer is not potty trained. - Joe
Every spring, the new fawns are dropped out in our back yard (and sometimes under the neighbor's deck). My dog is not this docile; she's pretty enraged when she sees them. - Glen Campbell
I visited a mountain resort down in El Salvador once when I had the chance to see deer really close. Thank goodness there was a fence where you could stand behind as the deer were a little... pushy - Iván Abrego
Occasionally in STL I've heard the squirrel chirping get too loud when the cat window was open. The boys have brought in bunnies and the occasional bird, but I would be completely unnerved if a full-grown squirrel came in under its own power! - Mary B: #TeamMonique from iPhone
so what happens do we keep the fawn as a pet or call animal services ? - Peter Dawson

Oh deer. - Stephan Planken
Police arrest a woman for failing to return 9-year-overdue J-Lo VHS | Ars Technica -
Police arrest a woman for failing to return 9-year-overdue J-Lo VHS | Ars Technica
"Fox Carolina reported on Friday that a 27-year-old Pickens, South Carolina woman was arrested and detained this week for failing to return a VHS she rented in 2005 from a local video store. The woman, Kayla Finley, had gone to the police station to report an issue regarding harassment and stalking, and while she was at the station, officials there realized there was an old warrant out for her arrest." - rönin from Bookmarklet
"Ars can only guess whether after watching the movie, Finley took the time to be kind and rewind. Surely a polygraph test and several hours of interrogation could sort that out though." - rönin
Insane. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
It must feel great to have finally solved this important cold case. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
LOL, Stephan. - Jenny H. from Android
Maybe she was arrested for watching that movie. - Eric - Back to the Grill from iPhone
Don't be fooled by the rocks that she got. - Derrick
>.> - Alix May
If there is a warrant, there is little the police can do. There job is to process it. My question is did they follow through as diligently on the report of harassment; an answer to that is not mentioned at all. - Michael W. May from Android
They should've arrested her for renting it in the first place. But that zinger aside, Michael brings up a really good point. - Hookuh Tinypants
what is the statutes of limitation in FL state ? - Peter Dawson

Am I the only one doing a double take or raising an eyebrow after reading the last line in Manley's February Booklist column? ETA: Link provided by Andy -
What the fuck - DJF from Android
yeah - maʀtha
eh ? - Peter Dawson
On the plus side, Manley just got fired from another writing gig. - DJF from Android
Um. Ok. Then. - ♫Jorge Covert, Trainer♫
*rolls eyes* - Kirsten
o.O - RepoRat
Whoa, dude, just... whoa. - Regular Amanda
Eh, and how often is it a good idea to read just the last line of anything? Context matters. Anyone read the entire column? - Library Fool
I read the few paragraphs above, and see what he's trying to get at. But he failed completely as soon as he wrote that last sentence. - DJF from Android
Library Fool - I read the whole column. Obviously, I had it in front of me when I took the photo. It was all about his white man understanding of the black experience. I was not impressed. The last line was just par for the course. - Katy S from iPhone
At one point he laments that black people didn't want his help with civil rights work. - Katy S from iPhone
Poor guy - DJF from Android
Better to burn out than the fade away, amiright? - Andy words - Sir Shuping is just sir
Oh Lord. Dear Booklist: I write well. Please consider hiring me as a replacement. - laura x from iPhone
It's pretty self-indulgent. - Katy S
Sometimes I feel that not having a college education means that I am just not capable of taking a statement and finding something in it that can be seen as something negative. Open discussion? Intelligent exchange? Being able to voice something that doesn't conform to standards currently fashionable? Seems that is not possible. Unless somebody explains to me in terms even I understand... more... - Uli
We all are part of someone elses experience. I am part of my wife's experience. She is part of mine. I am part of the experience of anyone I've met. They are part of my experience. And I think that if we don't accept the fact that we are part of each others experience and discuss that experience openly and without holding back the uncomfortable bits we'll never get any further than this. - Uli
Uli, I think the biggest problem for me is the entitlement that seems to go along with his take that his experience is the only experience and so that's his view. I have a problem with the term "black experience" because there is no singular, monolithic "black experience." My life is as different from the neighbor next door, to Will Smith to President Obama, to the student I helped with... more... - Derrick
Uli - In addition to what Derrick said, there is a long history of white people trying to define and control the definitions of the experiences of people of color in this country. It's still pervasive. - Katy S from iPhone
+1, Katy. - Derrick
as in his blog post about the ALA code of conduct, he sets up his reality as the normative one - maʀtha
It's not about the conversation, it's the rules. Manley wants a conversation where he is comfortable and always important. - Pete
This was his last column. He retired. - Andy
out with a bang, huh. - ~Courtney F
I wonder if this was the "after the Code of Conduct and this column, maybe you should retire" conversation result. Seem awful quick and without any "hey this is my last column," in this last column. - ♫Jorge Covert, Trainer♫
Christ what an asshole - DJF from Android
Just keep in mind that they didn't renew Griffey's contract but Manley's was. - Andy
What? But Griffey is awesome! - RepoRat - Andy
The AL magazine link is 404ing. - Andy
Yeah, it does seem rather... abrupt. - laura x
Well, that sucks about Griffey - maʀtha
the date is for the end of 2011, so it's older news - Andy
yeah, you can tell how often I read ALA stuff *shamefaced* - RepoRat
and yet the AL is still collecting paychecks. - Andy
Same reason. People read that stuff. I shouldn't talk, though; I'm collecting a paycheck from that same org, and they value me because (for an academic-library column) I collect pageviews. ;) - RepoRat
aww, it's nice seeing people be disappointed about that, but yeah, it's old news. In the interim, they totally killed the old URL structure, so pretty much everything that DID link to Perpetual Beta is broken. The content is still around, here: - Jason Griffey
I was pretty pissed at the time about the contract, though. They killed it with 2 weeks left, and no discussion or warning or anything. I mostly like working with AL, but they've done some dumb things. - Jason Griffey
Single ladies of FF (especially shy and/or introverted ones): Hypothetically, if I were to go on a first date (coffee or possibly dinner) with a woman that seems to be pretty shy or introverted (not 100% sure which, yet), what should I do on that date? What kinds of questions should I ask?
I've never been on a proper "date" in my life, so I have no idea how this whole process works. I already totally botched it when I asked her in the first place (she said "maybe", and I basically just said "cool"), but I'm hoping I might get another chance at it next week. If she does say "yes", I don't have a clue where I go from there. I'm so inept when it comes to "dating" at the moment. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Don't consider it a date but lunch with a potential friend. What would you talk about with a friend? Do such with her. This is, by far, the easiest way to see a future fit. She hates *** and you love *** , things like that. Discuss where you have lived and laugh. Nothing sexier than a man who can laugh. - Janet
I don't know if this helps, but I'm an introvert, and I like to talk about books, music, movies, animals, and geekiness. - Melly
When I dated first dates usually consisted of an activity that had a definate end. This way if things weren't going well we both had an out. I always kept things talk of anything controversial...just light banter. Be yourself...and smile. :) - furrworld
Dont think of it as a date.. think of at as meeting an old friend.. Catch up and chatter. - Peter Dawson
Thanks for the tips. I'll try to give these ideas a shot. I'm sure we'll be able to talk about music, and we can definitely talk about our kids. The idea of having a "definite end" is an interesting thought. I kind of figured coffee might be a good place to start, as it does give us both an "out" if we need it (when we're done with our coffee), but it's also casual, in case we want to... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
DUDE, this is just a date !! Just be yourself . be confident of yourself ..Ladies admire confident men and smile and dont fidget with your phone and check email/txt ect....focus on the lady ALWAYS !! - Peter Dawson
ask her out again. follow-up is golden. - t-ra: WeirdnessSandwich
ya and dont 4got to post how it went !! we all are routing for u ! - Peter Dawson
Yeah, I will definitely ask her out again. I was just kind of thrown by the "maybe" response when I asked her if she'd like to get coffee sometime. This time, I'll try to have a reasonable number of options as to when and where we might be able to go, without overloading her with choices. I know I'm overthinking all of this, but, that's what I do. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I asked her last night if she was available on Saturday. She said she wasn't sure whether or not she had to work, but that she'd let me know on Wednesday. I think that's progress. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE from YouFeed
:oD - Melly
I'd date you. You have long hair and a cat. - Melly

Wonderful - thank you reminded me of all the fun I had with my road grader --- "scraper" --- priceless Thank you Wade and mom :) - Steve Cleary
His dad actually made his band learn the mighty machines theme song and play it at a few parties - it's a pretty basic rocking blues song. - Laura Norvig from iPod
Peter, 2013 was a pretty good year on the revenue front. The numbers have been dropping lately though. - Laura Norvig from iPod
