Well, I didn't run the Chicago Marathon and I know have plantar fasciitis in both feet, but I met my annual mileage goal (600 miles) 6 weeks early, ran more miles than any year since my late 20s and dropped about 10lbs. So I've got that going for me. Which is nice. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet

We amuse ourselves around work by plotting little revenges against ex-corporate. The latest, devised by the boss, is to send a Holiday package to the corporate area manager (the person who most likely put our head on the block as he took over our business) with a note thanking him for our best year ever. Hah!
It isn't our best year ... but we are doing better than scraping by and things are starting to look encouraging, including winning a 30k contract that ex-corporate area dude wanted really, really badly. We just want to rub it in a little :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress

Real-Life 'Unicorn' Found; Deer Has Extremely Rare Deformity - http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news...
Real-Life 'Unicorn' Found; Deer Has Extremely Rare Deformity
"It looks like it just walked out of a fairy tale, but this deer with a single, unicorn-like antler is the real thing. Shot by a hunter in Celje, Slovenia (map), in August, the roe deer has an extremely rare type of antler deformity, likely caused by an injury early in the antlers' development. Such injuries are common in deer and often lead to antler abnormalities, including bizarrely shaped racks. The abnormal antler on this Slovenian "unicorn" is so unusual that scientist Boštjan Pokorny, who verified the animal's authenticity, said he's never seen anything like it in nature. "In this species, only males grow antlers, which are bilateral and usually symmetrical bone structures that appear from two antler pedicles, i.e. extensions of the skull," Pokorny, assistant director of the ecological research institute ERICo Velenje, said in an email. "However, in the case of this very untypical and interesting buck, both pedicles, which should be separated, grew up together in one large pedicle."" - Jessie from Bookmarklet
COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Just did some basic measuring and calculations to see if my pour-over coffee system is more or less economical than my K-Cup coffee system.
When I make a whole (10-cup) pot of coffee in my regular coffee pot, I generally use 8 tablespoons of ground coffee. When I make a 12-16 oz. cup of coffee using pour-over, I generally use 3-4 tablespoons of ground coffee. At first, I thought that seemed like a pretty insane waste of money (I'd use the same amount of ground coffee for 2 cups of coffee as I do for a whole pot). Then, I thought about how expensive K-Cups generally are. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I can't really make a 16 oz. cup of coffee with a K-Cup, but I can make a 12 oz. cup (though, that's usually too weak for me to enjoy it). Normally, I'll make either an 8 oz. cup or a 10 oz. cup. At that point, 1 K-Cup is approximately equivalent to 2 tablespoons of ground coffee in my pour-over. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Figuring an average cost of $.50/K-Cup (many are more expensive than that, some are a bit cheaper than that), and an average cost of $15.00/lb. of ground coffee, I figure there has to be at least 60 tablespoons of coffee in a pound in order for it to be equivalent in cost to the K-Cup. I just dumped less than a pound of Starbucks coffee into a 4-cup measuring cup (which would be ~64 tablespoons, if my math is correct - 4 Tbsp = 1/4 cup; 16 Tbsp = 1 cup; 64 Tbsp = 4 cups). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Based on that, it appears that the pour-over is more economical than the K-Cups, and not a whole lot less convenient. Yes, I could use the re-usable filter/cup in the Keurig machine, but, using 2 Tbsp for an 8-10 oz. cup of coffee in that thing always results in grounds spilling out all over the place. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
As a sidenote, the Keurig machine cost $100-150 when I bought it; the "deluxe" pour-over I bought from Starbucks (which also includes a nice wooden box with space for 2 pour-overs for regular cups or 1 pour-over for a tall mug) was $25 on clearance. That said, I still use the Keurig machine to actually heat the water before I pour it into the pour-over (it's much quicker than the microwave), so that's why the cost of the systems is an aside, rather than a part of the actual discussion. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
As a second sidenote, while it's possible for me to sample a bunch of different kinds of coffee with the pour-over system, it's much easier to store/buy samples in K-Cups than it is to try to store all of that ground coffee in various places. Even with 4 or 5 different kinds of ground coffee right now, my counter space is pretty limited. If I dump the ground coffee into a container (as... more... - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Interesting thoughts - I use the reusable refillable K-Cup mostly. I have. A selection of coffee and tea K Cups for guests. I - WarLord
Great analysis. Just wondering about replacement costs. How long until a Keurig machine needs replacement? - Todd Hoff
WarLord - the refillable one is great if it works for you; as I said, it always spews grounds all over the place when I try to use it, due to the amount of coffee I use in it. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
Todd - As long as you treat the Keurig machine well (using filtered water, cleaning with vinegar every 6 months or so, etc.), it should last for a few years, at least. The one my ex-wife is using has worked well for ~5 years, now (the issue she's having with it now is that the gasket that goes between the top needle & the K-Cup itself disappeared, so it leaks when you try to use it). The one I'm currently using (one of the Cuisinart models) is only a year old, so I can't comment on its longevity, yet. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
As one more sidenote that I thought of today: With the pour-over, I have the opportunity, given the right circumstances, to re-use some of the coffee. For instance, this afternoon, I made an 8 oz. cup of coffee for myself with 2Tbsp. of coffee, and drank it pretty quickly. Then, by adding 2 more Tbsp. to the existing coffee grounds, I was able to make 16 oz. of coffee in my travel mug before I headed out the door. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE

Denialists have learned to use the vocabulary of critical thinking against their opponents.

"Medical acting works like this: you get a script and a paper gown. You get $13.50 an hour. Our scripts are ten to twelve pages long. They outline what’s wrong with us—not just what hurts but how to express it. They tell us how much to give away, and when. We are supposed to unfurl the answers according to specific protocols. The scripts dig deep into our fictive lives: the ages of our children and the diseases of our parents, the names of our husbands’ real-estate and graphic-design firms, the amount of weight we’ve lost in the past year, the amount of alcohol we drink each week." - Micah from Bookmarklet
"Once the fifteen-minute encounter has finished, the medical student leaves the room and I fill out an evaluation of his/her performance.

A new way to look at Global Warming | Loony Labs
"A new study hopes to complete the understanding of what happens to the planet under climate change. Instead of carbon dioxide, or CO2, creating a blanket to slowly warm the planet, the study shows the story is a little more complicated [...] When CO2 is first added, it does act as a blanket, trapping long-wave infrared energy coming off the Earth. The atmosphere then emits less of this long-wave radiation to space because the upper atmosphere is cooler than the Earth’s surface, just as the top of your blanket is cooler than your body. But the Earth gradually heats up under this blanket, and hotter objects emit more long-wave radiation, so within about a decade the effect of adding the thicker blanket has been canceled by the warmer body emitting more energy. So what keeps the planet warming after the first decade? In the longer term, the study shows that the Earth begins to absorb more shortwave radiation – the high-energy rays coming directly from the sun." - Eivind from Bookmarklet
