If I were someone else, I would recommend me to a friend.

Given the habits of royalty and the aristocracy, I now kind of wonder how much of the world's misery is a consequence of inbreeding and recessive genes and the possible deleterious effects to cognitive ability.
In practice, doesn't an incapacitated monarch just mean the grand viziers and so on take more control of the reins? - Andrew C (✔)
Yeah, but grand viziers and regents are not infrequently royalty or aristocracy too. - Victor Ganata
Haemophilia was pretty common in pre-WWI European royal families, and I wouldn't be surprised if they were carrying other genetic disorders too. - John (bird whisperer)
And that's just the single gene disorders we *know* about. Who knows what all those recessive pleiotropic genes might have done to the ruling class's brains? - Victor Ganata
I've sometimes wondered if inbreeding can explain World War I. - John (bird whisperer)
It definitely contributed, if just because of the family politics clashing (or emphasizing) the power conflicts. - Jennifer Dittrich

Do geese attack? They were eyeballing me pretty hard so I walked around them. They stared me down the whole way. 😐
Yes. Yes they do. - Victor Ganata
Oh, yeah man. Geese are not to be trifled with. - Jennifer Dittrich
Yes. Beware the geese. - ωαřмaiden ❤Bassetmom❤
Or turkeys...Geese and turkeys. - Ken Morley
Chicks and geese and ducks better scurry. - Betsy
They do sometimes. If someone comes what they consider too close, sometimes they fight and sometimes they scurry away. I think they're more aggressive when they have goslings or eggs nearby. - John (bird whisperer)

some days, i envy people who nap.
I don't nap I pass out - Just Val
Imagine I made a joke about felt-making, and that it was both clever and funny. - Slippy: Formless
This. I wanted nothing more than to nap during my lunch break yesterday. I just can't nap. :/ - Kristin from iPhone

No but got them out of the house and that is a benefit in it self. - Me
I have to wonder if that's just more an indication of how crap the job market is in general - only the kids who don't need summer jobs are able to pull out of that, not due to skipping, but the other factors (wealth, connections, education.) - Jennifer Dittrich

Between finding out that Hello Kitty is not a cat and that most IKEA catalog photos are fake, this week has been Hell on my trust issues.
Wait, what's this about the IKEA catalog?? - Andrew C (✔) from Android

So I started the Physical Therapy and I kinda like it. (The yoga pants were a good idea.) Found out I have back muscles I'm not using!
I pretend I'm seeing my Personal Trainer. The clinic is inside a fancy Athletic Club. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
So far I've just done about 45 min of gentle exercises and then 15 min of the best heat and stimulation ever. The best part: it's covered by Medicare. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
So my last session was today (8/26). I ended up going 2X/wk for 3 mos. Medicare never even blinked. I improved a LOT. Most stuff I can continue at home. As a bonus, Nine sent me an early birthday present- a half-round roller that I can use here. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed

Just saw a Charmin (toilet paper) ad where the animated spokesbears were going through airport security. ಠ_ಠ
Everything about that sentence is wrong. And amazing. - joey . An incomplete list of What Is Wrong With This Ad: (1) the security bear waving his metal detector over papa bear's butt and saying "You're clean." (2) papa bear wiggles his ass in celebration on that line. (3) the entire spokesbear family is naked, but the security bear isn't. - Andrew C (✔)

American exceptionalism when it comes to income distribution – our unique suspicion of and hostility to social insurance and anti-poverty programs – is, I and many others would argue, very much tied to our racial history. This does not, however, explain in any direct way why we should misperceive real inequality: people could oppose aid to Those... -

The trouble with purely racial explanations of police using excessive force is that cops don’t limit their excesses to racial minorities. White people suffer them also. Remember the recent case of Cecily McMillan, an Occupy protester who was brutalized by a white good thug with a record of using excessive force. McMillan is a young white woman.... -

Since the late 1970s, American society has been transformed in ways that point to the abandonment of liberal democracy and the welfare state while social policies have been promulgated that egregiously serve the interest of global markets. Within this period during which the liberal market gave way to a punitive form of casino capitalism or, as... -

So I am having some beers and going to a show because I wanna just roll tonight like nothing's different. Maybe denial avoidance behavior, but so be it.
And I want to express that it isn't just a show, but a band I've known and loved for 20 years. And it's the anniversary of their first record. So it's an appropriate kind of epic feeling. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
it's not denial avoidance behaviour if it helps you feel better. therapy is valuable in whatever form it comes in. - Big Joe Silence
Right? Also one of the guys said he knows someone who runs a tech firm in town who's 'always looking for someone'. Who knows. He was genuinely concerned when I told him and invited me to a pool party at his place next weekend. They are total sweethearts. - t-ra supports #LOLSpidra from Android
