Dear stores, if you close at 1pm on Saturday, you’ll not make any money from me.

My wife has been waiting to hear whether there's budget to turn her year's secondment into a permanent position - wanted by her current manager and, of course, us - as otherwise she'll need to start job hunting near the year's end as her old job which she would otherwise go back to has switched to a shift pattern and neither she nor I want her to...
Meanwhile, my wife was working with another woman in her office who recently took a couple of weeks holiday. Prior to the holiday she was supposed to give my wife some instructions on running certain elements of her job for cover but because this woman was taken ill for a fortnight before the holiday this didn't happen. Nevertheless, my wife battled on, made a few mistakes, but generally worked things out and picked up the slack and other workers from other departments who have to liaise with where my wife now works have remarked that things by-and-large are probably working more smoothly now and departmental cooperation has improved. - Mark H
This woman was supposed to return to work from her holiday yesterday but didn't show up and didn't call in. Today they discovered her dead in her home. - Mark H
I feel a little bit guilty that after the initial "damn!" reaction my next thought was "well, that should hopefully free up that budget." I'm a bad person. - Mark H

Sen. Brandon Smith has important things to say about climate change, Mars -
"Brandon Smith: 'As you (Energy & Environment Cabinet official) sit there in your chair with your data, we sit up here in ours with our data and our constituents and stuff behind us. I don’t want to get into the debate about climate change, but I will simply point out that I think in academia we all agree that the temperature on Mars is exactly as it is here. Nobody will dispute that. Yet there are no coal mines on Mars. There are no factories on Mars that I’m aware of.'" - Mark H from Bookmarklet
"First of all, I did not make up that quote, it’s quite real. Secondly, while the average temperature on Earth is roughly 58 degrees Fahrenheit, the average temperature on Mars is approximately -80 degrees Fahrenheit. In Sen. Smith’s defense, he’s only off by about 138 degrees or so, which happens sometimes." - Mark H
Is this what they mean by 'inbred'? :)

In Canada I don't have the right to view a lot of content from Amazon. Which seems odd. It's odd like the idea of states rights versus individual rights. I can go from one state to another and I lose my ability to buy alcohol, for example. One foot over an imaginary line and I've lost my ability to view something I thought I paid for. #messedup

One thing I can't get used to is the British phrasing for "going to hospital" instead of the US "going to the hospital." It catches like a rusty latch every time I hear it. And I'll concede it even makes more sense, but that's the power of habit.
Hah, I just realized 'going to bed / going to the bed' parallel. (Canadians use the British 'to hospital' phrasing too). - Micah

Phys.Org Mobile: Hydrogen breakthrough could be a game-changer for the future of car fuels -
"UK researchers today announced what they believe to be a game changer in the use of hydrogen as a "green" fuel. A new discovery by scientists at the UK's Science and Technology Facilities Council (STFC), offers a viable solution to the challenges of storage and cost by using ammonia as a clean and secure hydrogen-containing energy source to produce hydrogen on-demand in situ. Hydrogen is considered by many to be the best alternative fuel for automotive purposes but there are complications with its safe and efficient storage and very significant concerns surrounding the costs of a hydrogen infrastructure for transportation. This new discovery may well have found the answers to both these challenges. When the components of ammonia are separated (a technique known as cracking) they form one part nitrogen and three parts hydrogen. Many catalysts can effectively crack ammonia to release the hydrogen, but the best ones are very expensive precious metals. This new method is different and... more... - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet

Celebrate romance with detailed Lego versions of famous Princess Bride scenes · Great Job, Internet! · The A.V. Club
"Brickworld Chicago rolled through Illinois recently, bringing with it a slew of meticulously crafted LEGO displays. One group really went for the feels, though, by recreating almost every scene from the beloved Princess Bride. Who out there hasn’t wished for a romance like that of Wesley and Princess Buttercup, but in Lego form? Or the sweet revenge of Inigo Montoya on his father’s killer reconstructed with plastic figures? The guys Lego’d everything from little Fred Savage’s bedroom to the fire swamp and the pit of despair to Wesley’s battle of wits and Montoya’s famous sword fight." - rönin from Bookmarklet
