The doctor said I should be able to dance again, but not for a year. I can get through this but I feel grief like a part of me has died, albeit temporarily. BF telling me 10min later I should be glad I'm not paralyzed. Can I be sad, FF?
I mean it's only my #1 coping mechanism AND way to get in touch with my emotions, plus my favorite mode of self-expression, not to mention the only activity that has consistently brought me joy at all times of my life. - Lo from Android
You can be sad. And you can certainly grieve a loss, even if you know it's temporary. - Anne Bouey
YES. I'm so sad for you. I've been out of dance for a month with mono and am heartbroken, I can't even imagine what you're going through other than knowing it sucks times ten million. :-( Sending dance love <3 - Lola Bean (Penguin) from iPhone
I recognize that it's good to look at the positive, and I am making a big effort, but that felt so invalidating of my feelings, I do believe some reassurance might be in order. He sounds right, but it feels so shitty. - Lo from Android
On the actual bright side, I've found five ways (so far!) to enjoy the magic of dance despite my limitations. Fuck those restrictions! - Lo from Android
Could you expand your dance to choreography during your down time? - Janet from FFHound!
Lo, you get to feel any and every way that you feel about not being able to dance. Or about anything else, for that matter. *sends speedy healing love* - vicster: full-bodied
I hope you're better soon. Losing a creative outlet really sucks. *hugs* - John (bird whisperer)
Absolutely!!! I'll be sad with and for you, in fact. *hug* - Lisa L. Seifert from iPhone
I figure we feel sad when bad things happen because it's part of how we grieve - you can still be grateful about other things, but still sad about those. I hope that your recovery is swift, but it feels totally understandable to be down a little about your situation now. - Jennifer Dittrich
Thanks guys :) It's a real boost, since I see so few people these days. - Lo from Android
Thanks for the dance love, Penguin! First thing I did after that discussion was text a dance friend... you get it! I also really appreciate the choreography suggestion, I've had a multi-year project on the back brain burner for a long time, and that sounds great. I was discouraged about not being able to do much even mentally for a while, but it's getting better with less painkillers. - Lo from Android
The grief of "what might have been" is part of our physical limitations the grief of :"what if" and "what now" I hope you can find solace in music and movement that is perhaps not dance but something else that is you escaping your sadness and static place. Know perhaps that your feeling now could enrich your palette of emotions for a dance you build in your mind that others may share. I send you peace and empathy and healing thoughts and the knowledge that this to shall pass - WarLord

Honest Question: Is Google Glass still a thing? Is it on a slow boil or has that flame kinda dwindled.
I see some being worn in these parts. But I think they're still cooking up what they want it to be. - Stephen Mack
They just started selling them to the general public last week. - Kevin Fox
Physical thing doesn't mean it's a thing. There's been plenty of tech that's gone for public sale that's missed it's time or failed to engage. - Johnny
I was thinking about it before. While I'm not in the market for either device, Google Glass verse a smartwatch, I'd go smartwatch all the time. I get the concept of Glass but I am still in the camp of passive tech. I don't mind looking at my wrist rather than having it always in my peripheral (and intrusive to those I interact with). - Johnny
Until I see someone sporting Glass in the wild here in flyover land I'm going to say NO not a thing. Given that Google choose not to counter program against the big watch announcement I'm going to say on the verge of being "waved" - WarLord

One of the things that's gone wrong with music is people forgetting how good the blues are.
It's where rock 'n roll came from. Pop is a saccharin version of it. We're left with so much watered down emotion and soul. - Cristo

Blues merged with Rythm awhile back. It's hard to tell that Blues can be good from that. - Eivind from Android
Roger Daltrey has recently recorded a blues album with Wilko Johnson, and it's freaking awesome. There's still some good blues out there, but yeah, it's hard to get anyone under 40 to appreciate it. - Slippy
Ohh Slippy, thanks for the heads up on this. - Janet

A Watch Guy's Thoughts On The Apple Watch After Seeing It In The Metal (Tons Of Live Photos) — HODINKEE - Wristwatch News, Reviews, & Original Stories
"Apple got more details right on their watch than the vast majority of Swiss and Asian brands do with similarly priced watches, and those details add up to a really impressive piece of design." - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla) from Bookmarklet
This: "... The Apple Watch is absolutely the best smart watch on the planet. That much I'm sure of. But are we sure that wearable technology is something we really want? In the same way those who publicly wore blue-tooth headsets five years ago and those who wore Google Glass one year ago, will smart watches ever become a thing that people genuinely want? If anyone can make it happen, it's Apple. It's going to take a lot of time, and a lot of test cases when this thing launches next year ..." - WarLord
I think the secret sauce here isn't the watch itself, but the (as yet unproven) ability of the watch to reduce friction in things like payments and IoT integration. - Kevin (aka ThreadKilla)

With genetic testing, I gave my parents the gift of divorce - Vox
"At first, I was thinking this is the coolest genetics story, my own personal genetics story. I wasn't particularly upset about it initially, until the rest of the family found out. Their reaction was different. Years of repressed memories and emotions uncorked and resulted in tumultuous times that have torn my nuclear family apart. My parents divorced. No one is talking to my dad. We're not anywhere close to being healed yet and I don't know how long it will take to put the pieces back together. After this discovery was made, I went back to 23andMe and talked to them. I said, "I'm not sure all your customers realize that when they participate in your family finder program, they're participating in what are essentially really advanced paternity tests."" - rönin from Bookmarklet

(Image credit: Vintage 1968 Texaco Paper Road Map of Oregon, on sale for $3 on Etsy: https://www.etsy.com/listing...) - Stephen Mack
My answer: Nope. Not for at least five years now. - Stephen Mack
Yes - one of WA, one of the US and Canada. - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!
Yes, many from all over the place. - Todd Hoff
I still use paper maps. - John (bird whisperer)
yes. I keep one of Michigan roads just in case. I haven't needed it often. But the few times I have, it's been invaluable. - MoTO: Team Marina
Of course. I didn't get a smart phone till a year ago and I much prefer a paper map. - Betsy
Nope - Glen Campbell
Nope. They're under my bed. - Anika
yes. - Lnorigb
Nope. - Louis Gray
Yes. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!
For the record my car also has a tape deck. - Steve C Team Marina
probably ones I printed out from Google and neglected to throw away. - Steele Lawman
yes, I keep an atlas of the US in there - ellbeecee
Yes, several. - Anne Bouey from iPhone
Not anymore. I do have an atlas at home for getting a general sense of places I might want to visit. - Amit Patel
I should add, part of the reason I have a couple of paper maps are the couple of times I've been stuck somewhere needing directions when either my phone has died, or there's no service. - Jennifer Dittrich
Yes, mostly for CA, but I have east coast ones at home in the file cabinet. I think there are a few AAA guidebooks in the car, too, come to think of it. - Corinne L
Yes, absolutely, city maps where we drive frequently. CSAA even mails maps (since the nearby office closed). - Walt Crawford
I still have some Hagstrom county books from the 90's, but no car. :P - April Russo
I don't think so. It's entirely possible there are still one or two atlases in the ex-wife's car, though (which used to be mine). - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I didn't realize it but yes, we do. Joy actually pulled one out of the glove box the other day and began using it! - Jim: with more caffeine!

"But we're sick of zucchini dad." - Ken Morley from email
Zucchini noodles? - Corinne L
Ooh, good idea Corinne. These zucchini noodles look fairly delicious! http://allrecipes.com/recipe... - Ken Morley
I highly recommend checking out Skinnytaste.com. She has been obsessed with zucchini noodles this summer (and she also has just a fantastic collection of zucchini recipes in general). She also did a really great zucchini roundup back in July (I've tried about a third of those recipes and they're pretty good) that might give you some extra ideas! - Hookuh Tinypants
bread! grilled or broiled - GRANDMAFORSCARLETT
Grill the zucchini then add to stir fry. Grilled or griddle added to salads - WarLord
Tons of great ideas here http://www.skinnytaste.com/2014... thanks Amanda! The Pizza Bites look like a good one for the zucchini that get a little too large... plus zucchini and marinara sauce seem like a delicious combo. :) Grilling or stir-frying in olive oil with onions is my go-to method, but I have everything here for the zucchini alla scapece, so I'm having that for lunch. Thanks Lorenzo! - Ken Morley
Zucchini is one of the things that makes it hard for me to learn how to eat seasonally. I just enjoy it so much during the summer that over winter I can't help but buy all the imported zukes to quell my cravings. - Hookuh Tinypants
I know what you mean. It kills me to pay for zucchini. :) - Ken Morley
Heard from a comedian: my town was so small, we never locked the doors to the house or the car. Except in August. If you didn't lock your car in August, you'd come back to a back seat full of zucchini. - Betsy

Cornel West: “He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency” http://www.salon.com/2014... via @Salon
No, the thing is he posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency. The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free. The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, the war criminals go free. And yet, you know, he acted as if he was both a progressive and as if he was concerned about the issues of serious injustice and inequality and it turned out that he’s just another neoliberal centrist with a smile and with a nice rhetorical flair. And that’s a very sad moment in the history of the nation because we are—we’re an empire in decline. Our culture is in increasing decay. Our school systems are in deep trouble. Our political system is dysfunctional. Our leaders are more and more bought off with legalized bribery and normalized corruption in Congress and too much of our civil life. You would think that we needed somebody—a Lincoln-like figure who could revive some democratic spirit and democratic possibility. - WarLord
nd we ended up with a brown-faced Clinton. Another opportunist. Another neoliberal opportunist. It’s like, “Oh, no, don’t tell me that!” I tell you this, because I got hit hard years ago, but everywhere I go now, it’s “Brother West, I see what you were saying. Brother West, you were right. Your language was harsh and it was difficult to take, but you turned out to be absolutely right.”... more... - WarLord

Water consumption used to be batch, now it's streaming. You would get a bucket of water from the well, to wash your face you would pour water from a pitcher into a bowl, baths were filled bucket by bucket. Now we have a streaming model where it flows continually into hoses, faucets, sinks, baths. Is streaming more wasteful?
It allows people to be more wasteful, certainly. I often witness other women in the women's room who run the water while looking at themselves in the mirror, while rubbing their hands together with soap, while brushing their teeth. They don't only use it when they actually need it. Furthermore, if people had to go to the effort of getting a bucket of water, it would be more precious to... more... - Spidra Webster

Hillary Clinton Urged to Stay Mum on Ferguson Shooting
"Potential presidential candidate Hillary Clinton is being pressured by Rev. Al Sharpton to step up and comment on the Ferguson shooting controversy — but Democratic strategists are urging her to stay quiet, Politico reported. Sharpton called on the former secretary of state as well as possible Republican contender Jeb Bush, and other White House hopeful, to make their feelings known about the killing of an unarmed black teenager by a white police officer." - Sean McBride from Bookmarklet
""Jeb Bush, Hillary Clinton, don't get laryngitis on this issue," Sharpton said sardonically during a rally over the weekend in Ferguson, Missouri. "Nobody can go to the White House unless they stop by our house and talk about policing." The preacher has continued to press for Clinton and other Democratic candidates in 2016 to speak up during his MSNBC show, but his requests appear to have fallen on deaf ears, Politico said." - Sean McBride
"Donna Brazile, former Vice President Al Gore's campaign manager, urged Clinton to wait until a full investigation is carried out into the shooting of 18-year-old Michael Brown by Officer Darren Wilson before she addresses the crisis.

Its racism, not “principled conservatism”: The South, civil rights, GOP myths — and the roots of Ferguson http://www.salon.com/2014... via @Salon
But the South was already halfway out the door at the time. Missouri, with a fair amount of Southern culture in its veins, is nonetheless a border state, home to Harry Truman, whose enunciation of a civil rights agenda, followed by integration of the armed forces and strong civil rights platform in 1948, led to the walkout of the Dixiecrats, which cost him a dramatic 20 percent drop in the share of the Southern vote from where it had been in 1944.
