Creationism Is About Gay Marriage, Not Science @HuffPostBlog http://huff.to/YIISCn via @HuffPostRelig
They are also, per scripture, oppositely sexed. There is no subtlety in the presentation of this fact: "buff Adams and sexpot Eves," Goldberg writes of the mannequins, "plastic breasts covered by waterfalls of extremely healthy hair." Male and female God created them; very male and very female Ken Ham presents them. For me this is a sign pointing to the truth about creationism, which is: Creationism is not about the dinosaurs in the ark, it's not about the weird chronology, it's not about the tortured explanations of geology and biology. Creationism, in short, is not about science at all. What creationism is about, is gay marriage. - WarLord

Britons sign away first-born children for free Wi-Fi - Yahoo News - http://news.yahoo.com/britons...
Britons sign away first-born children for free Wi-Fi - Yahoo News
"Several Britons agreed to give up their eldest child in return for the use of free Wi-Fi, in an experiment to highlight the dangers of public Internet, published on Monday. Londoners were asked to agree to terms and conditions as they logged on to use free Wi-Fi in a cafe in a busy financial district and at a site close to the houses of parliament. The terms included a "Herod clause", under which the Wi-Fi was provided only if "the recipient agreed to assign their first born child to us for the duration of eternity". In the short period the terms and conditions were live, six people signed up." - rönin from Bookmarklet
Seems like a fair trade to me. - Stephen Mack
A bit awkward at family gatherings, though. "Where's Timmy?" "Oh, I brought the free Wi-Fi instead. It's contractual." - Jennifer Dittrich from FFHound!

When a well known, veteran bead maker tells you your price is very reasonable ... is that a hint that its time to raise?
Time to at least put idea of pricing on the table for a bit of looking around at everybody else of your quality in your marketing area is doing - WarLord
Aim higher! Higher prices also says you do high quality work. Think Tiffany, Bulgari, Prada, and so on and so forth. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android

Searches in forums turn up many many postings by people who own properties in East and West Oakland bitching about section 8 and talking about "section 8 people" like we are the scum of the earth and less than human.
I think there should be a new law for humans. If you're going to make a statement like that, you should be forced to walk in their shoes! - Mo Kargas
One of the potential jurors was like that. I wanted to punch him in the face. - Anika
That's awful. :( - Jenny H. from Android

been there and fought hard. Once when I was working in a restaurant peeps were bitching about sect 8 and such and how can they do that etc and I turned around and said I am one of "those" and never heard a word about it again. - GRANDMAFORSCARLETT
Most of the feedback I've gotten outside of here & Facebook is along the lines of "get a job stop wasting my tax money" because of course the assholes don't even understand how section 8 works or what it is. (this part is about jerks in general, not the landlord jerks) - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
I unfriended my aunt on Facebook because she was spewing ignorant hate speech about people who need government assistance and why hard working tax payers shouldn't have to support them. I wanted to tell her that my dad was on government assistance when he died, but I bit my tongue. I don't have room for that vitriol in my life. - Jenny H. from Android
Empathy is lacking because nobody (that's an asshat) realizes just how close we all are to economic collapse - one bad hospital stay for instance any unexpected thing can put us over the edge... Be well you are in my thoughts - WarLord
If I feel like engaging, which isn't often, I like to ask people what they were doing in 1983, 1993, or 2003? Because I was working 40+ hours a week for decades, paying sometimes pretty high taxes and paying into medicare & social security. Anyone who complains about me & their tax money can kiss my substantial ass. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Yeah, the calloused attitudes towards those who suffer hardship get on my very last nerve! Don't people realise THEY could be without a job due to circumstances beyond their control?. Don't people realise that the economy isn't exactly robust right now, and hasn't been for a good few years? Don't people realise that there are those who have no immediate or maybe even extended family... more... - "n"

Paper. Didn't like using an app. - Rochelle *boom* Hartman
Paper list most of the time. I do leave it at home about 50% of the time. - COMPLICATED MR. NOODLE
I have the Safeway app which has a list, but I find when I'm in the store I have to keep stopping, scrolling, finding stuff...and I don't get a good signal in two of the stores I shop at. So I find myself still making paper lists. And leaving them home more often than not. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Mostly wing it. I got rid of my shopping apps awhile ago and use one of the notepads on my phone for longer lists. - Anika
Paper list, both for Safeway and for the monthly Target run. (But then, we don't have a smartphone so apps aren't in the picture.) The Safeway list is on the back side of the card on which I write that week's meaningful J4U specials, and that one *always* gets taken with us. - Walt Crawford
I use Color Note. It has a check list function that's perfect for this. - DB, Lil LB's Dad
I keep a small (6'x9") clipboard on a hook in the kitchen. Add to list as needed, take the whole clipboard with me and prop it in the cart. Last week I left it at the checkout. Got it back this week. I had crossed off all the the items except TP. Somebody had written "Oh no!" next to it. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
We use a small, dry-erase board on the fridge, then snap a phone pix before heading to the store. - Ken Morley
I have a meal-planning program I use (Plan to Eat) that tracks my pantry and spits out a grocery list once I've dropped in my meals for the week, so I just use that (I actually transcribe it into a little notebook I keep in my purse rather than print out a sheet every week; I prefer to organize it by the layout of the store I go to). Tried using apps but it just wasn't the same. - Hookuh Tinypants

We went to a new wifey baby friend persons house and they had one of them mythical magic babies. It sleeps. You know when you want to eat dinner, put it in swing, it sleeps. When you want to do some cleaning it sleeps. When you want to sleep it sleeps through the night. I hate that baby. :)

RT @JamesFallows: Scottish turnout super high in part because *every vote counts equally*. Reason #625 to dump Electoral College in US.
Mebbe, but I doubt if our turnout would go up appreciably if we dumped the Electoral College for most elections. Apathy is apathy. If we had a vote in California about seceding from the U.S., I bet California's turnout would be record-breaking too. - Stephen Mack
Of course, some of that apathy is deliberately encouraged. It's not like we deliberately set aside time as a society to do this, or expect that work or commerce should briefly halt to see it accomplished. Polling places are often extraordinarily inconvenient for large parts of the population, portions of which are at massive disadvantage when attempting to even register to vote. - Jennifer Dittrich
Jennifer, it's a good point. I'd love to see us implement a national voting day holiday (which other countries have had for years). - Stephen Mack
Certain segments of the political spectrum encourage apathy with such statements as "they're all the same" etc and by making voting a more arduous task then it needs to be.... Make Sunday polling day and tell them that football doesn't start tell the votes are tally'ed.... - WarLord
I'd love to see a voting holiday (a real holiday, as in only emergency personnel have to work, and people get paid leave) as well as a lot more polling places (with special emphasis on currently underserved areas, like reservations and very poor neighborhoods.) - Jennifer Dittrich
I support Stephens call for a national drinking^H^H^H^H^H^H^H^H voting holiday! (which is apparently how some folks in countries with such holidays respond... :/ ) - Ken Gidley
A holiday is interpreted as a "travel and get away" day. So that would conflict with voting. - Louis Gray
We vote on a Saturday. Works for us. - Johnny from iPhone
You vote on a Saturday? How do you get people to show up? They can't put a TV show on Saturdays. - Eric - It's My Thing from iPhone
Also, voting is done at almost every public school (close, easily accessible by public transport), there is pre-polling options like electoral officers taking voting stations to nursing homes and hospitals. - Johnny from iPhone

How to Tell if You’re in a MFA Workshop Story - http://the-toast.net/2014...
How to Tell if You’re in a MFA Workshop Story
"You sit at the bar and have a drink. When you finish your drink you have another. You drink in a way that is simple and direct and not at all in imitation of Hemingway or Carver, and if it is then it’s an homage, a subtle, searingly thought-provoking homage, and the bartender is a charming old gent who calls you “hoss” and not a college girl with a swallow tattoo on her breastbone." - Jessie from Bookmarklet
"Her laugh was like the jangle of a charm bracelet, or like the wind whispering in the branches of an aspen, or like waves crashing on the beach, or like something else that doesn’t really sound at all like laughter, or even any sound a human can make, to be honest." - Jessie
"There is an ethnic person nearby, but they are dispensing with excellent advice. Their voice is cracked and earthy, like the earth. If they were your father they would say they loved you, to your face and to your heart. “Chile,” they say, “sho nuff, this crazy world goes on a-spinnin’ and don’t nobody know where it gon’ stop.” You nod sagely. It is good to take the G Train." - Jessie
"The love of a good woman will save you. A good woman will place her cool hand upon your feverish brow and not like the bands you don’t like. A good woman will know she is a metaphor, and accept it." - Jessie
"And even through the buffer of this short story, female readers are probably becoming barren just by encountering the power of your thoughts, right at this minute, right now." - Victor Ganata
....and if it is then it’s an homage, a subtle, searingly thought-provoking homage.... - WarLord
Hahahahahaha the comments: "In my one graduate level writing course a woman wrote a non-fiction story about the time she got into a car accident (in the US) after visiting a bakery and how the bagels she had bought spilled onto the road and the professor chewed her out for a painfully long time about the careless and racist way she had invoked images of Palestinian terrorism, so. " - Jessie
Also: "The other day a friend read me a sentence from a writing workshop piece (not his) that said, hand to god: "She cupped her chin in her girlish fingers and stared at me with penstemon-sparked eyes." I had to look up penstemon; apparently it's a flower, alternately called beardtongue. Sexy. " - Jessie

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

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
Emotions are seldom an either/or, strictly one emotion affair. We feel many things at once. They are all valid. Hope and positivity for the future and grief and sadness for the now often live comfortably (and uncomfortably) together. - Michael W. May
