The cats had a busy night: eight dead mice on the doormat this morning.
Wow! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
They've been bringing them to the door daily since a week, but this is a record. I have seen them late at night teaming up once they know our dog is inside. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
I think I need to borrow a couple of them. I saw some tell tale signs of mice in my garage when it was really cold outside. Put out some Just One Bite baits and haven't seen any more signs of them. But I always wonder. Since I've been storing my neighbor's stuff, and will be for another week or so, I'd hate for them to have any critter damage. - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ
Do they eat em? - Amir
Usually they don't. - Stephan Planken from iPhone
They are useful here, Mark. With the ground water so high the gophers are moving towards the house so the cats will be busy. - Stephan Planken from iPhone

Lead in Ancient Rome's Water Was 100 Times Natural Levels - D-brief | -
Lead in Ancient Rome's Water Was 100 Times Natural Levels - D-brief |
"Everything from northern barbarians to the spread of Christianity has been blamed for the collapse of ancient Rome. But researchers have new evidence for another contributor: There was something in the water." - Maitani from Bookmarklet
"A study has found that “tap” water in ancient Rome — supplied to the city via lead pipes called fistulae — contained 100 times more lead than water drawn directly from local springs. That amount of lead in the water may have been a “major public health issue,” according to the new study." - Maitani
Maitani, you might enjoy the amazing science behind lead (and the politics!) on Cosmos s1:e7, The Clean Room, -- also mentions lead as possible cause of Roman decline. - Adriano
Thank you, Adriano, my current computer doesn't let me watch it, but I will look into it soon. :-) - Maitani
Apparently, using lead as a sweetener was also a thing back in the day :D - Victor Ganata

Hi JEN-NAY - MoTO ChilliSauce from Android
Weird. So it's like snowboarding, but with two skinny boards attached to your feet and two canes to keep you from falling over. - Professor A.I.
It's like downhill skiing with an equal amount of uphill skiing. And no lifts :) - Eivind from Android
Quite a workout on the uphill stretches, but such a beautiful way to enjoy the outdoors in the winter. :) - Jenny H. from Android
Good on you, Jenny BadAss. But I can't get behind using "winter" and "fun" in the same sentence. - MoTO ChilliSauce from Android

I guess some Americans are butthurt that Canada's middle class is in better shape.
Wouldn't that require Americans who actually care about the middle class? - Eric Logan
It's more of a vanity thing. - Todd Hoff
Considering that the vast majority of Americans consider themselves middle class (even the ones who aren't), I'd imagine it's more than a passing curiosity. - Victor Ganata
It should be. I am interested personally in alleviating poverty regardless of economic class. - Eric Logan
The fact that people who are technically supposed to be in the middle class (i.e., not poor) are struggling seems like a pretty good indicator for the trajectory of this country. - Victor Ganata
You will not get any argument from me that we as a country are on the wrong path. - Eric Logan
Why would they care that our middle class is better off, when they don't give a shit about the rest of the world's standard of living and the universal government supports that make it that way? - DJF from Android
It strikes at the heart of the myth of American exceptionalism. - Victor Ganata from iPhone
^ Psh, that just means you gotta believe harder. - Andrew C (✔)
True, the Austerians will probably take this as a sign that they're just not squeezing hard enough. - Victor Ganata from iPhone

Recycling Tokyo Crows Build Their Nests Out of Coat Hangers | Oddity Central - Collecting Oddities
"But perhaps the most amazing crow nests are the ones built around Tokyo, Japan. Twigs and other natural materials are hard to come by in the busy metropolis, so the birds settle for the next best thing, and that seems to be coat hangers. You have got to see pictures to believe it! A blogger had posted some of these images way back in 2005, after solving the mystery of the missing hangers from her back yard. But it isn’t just the one nest – it seems that Japanese Jungle Crows are compulsive collectors of hangers!" - Jessie from Bookmarklet

We used to be able to buy at the local drugstore chain with an option of three color choices (clear, brown and something else that I can't recall right now.) When I went to get some last year (for the first time in 5 or 6 years, or longer) they told me they no longer carry it! So, just because it's the sort of product one buys 2x a decade they should stop carrying it? I DON'T THINK SO! - Jkram|ɯɐɹʞſ

Speech done. Ready to officiate at my third wedding tomorrow. I'm after you Friar Will!
They asked for it to be funny like them. My goal is to make the bride pee herself with laughter and shed a tear in under 10 minutes. - Dough Balls
Well, I figure I have quite a bit of a head start. Later this year I should be officiating at my 100th wedding. Have fun tomorrow, and know I will be writing my third sermon for the week. :^) - Friar Will
I am not worthy Will. I am only in it for the free booze, which it turns out I get anyway. Damn it all. - Dough Balls
Free booze ftw though. That's something at least. - Friar Will

Shot of blackcurrant cordial in it is good too. - Mark H
Black & Tan? - Eric - Watch Me Now
Black Velvet. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Aren't those usually made with Guinness and champagne (or other sparkling wine?) - Jennifer Dittrich
I...I can't imagine an Irish drink being called a Black and Tan. - Pete
The Guinness & champagne drink had a different name. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
+1 Pete - Brent Schaus
Oh, that's not right, Z. I mean, I'm all for a Guinness and cider drink, but why steal another drink's name? (Weirdly, the B&T drink name pre-dates the police force from what I've read - not that Americans aren't more than happy to roll around with grossly inappropriate or disrespectful drink names.) - Jennifer Dittrich
The name may pre-date the police force, but some current connotations are a tad unavoidable. - Brent Schaus
Guys. Look. I'm telling you what that restaurant called the drinks ok. I don't know the proper names! Also? I'm drunk. :D - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Work the beer, Z! And yes, I guess the name might have arisen before the auxiliaries. - Pete
Well, it isn't like Americans don't have tendency to just ignore everyone else's news and carry on with our own whatnot. Also see: Irish Carbombs (Yay, America.) - Jennifer Dittrich
right lol - Brent Schaus
in my rather extensive experience in American Irish pubs, you can order a Black and Tan (Guinness and Bass) but if you really want to impress them, you order a Half and Half (Guinness and Harp). A Snakebite is half beer and half cider and a Black Velvet is half Guiness and half cider. As for Irish Carbombs, plenty of Irish American folks drink them, but I have noticed people sometimes don't like to order them. At one pub in Baltimore they just called them "bombs," I think to avoid saying the term. - t-ra: lose,find,repeat
Snakebite was one of the drinks on that page too! It's an English-style pub though. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
Snakebite is the national drink of goths - Pete
Well, snakebite and black(currant) - Pete

This Amazing Technicolor Castle has been Abandoned for more than 20 Years
Show all
"The Castello di Sammezzano is a show-stopper, a jaw-dropper. Hidden away in the Tuscan hills of Northern Italy, this electrifyingly beautiful Moorish castle was built a whopping 400+ years ago in 1605, but more than two decades, it’s been sitting empty, neglected, vulnerable to pillaging and to the elements." - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"Marquis Ferdinando Panciatichi Ximenes, a largely forgotten but key cultural, social and political figure in Florence when the city was the capital of Italy. Ferdinando, who lived and died at the property, spent 40 years planning, financing and realizing this exotic castle that would become the most important example of orientalist architecture in the country– only to be left to ruin at the hands of modern-day investors." - Mark H
"After the Marquis’ death at the end of the 19th century, there was a period of uncertainty for the property and historical records appear to be rather patchy. During the war, the Germans came looting, stealing mainly from the castle’s surrounding park that had once been considered the largest and most exotic in Tuscany. They took many important statues and fountains of Moorish style,... more... - Mark H
