Recurring dreams: 1. I'm in high school and I can't remember my locker combination, and 2. I keep thinking that I have missed a ton of assignments and am failing the class.
I know that dream. - Big Joe Silence from Android
Do you have your shoes on? For some reason I'm always barefoot as I try to navigate those hallways - WarLord
I have my shoes. - Mary Carmen
Actually, that dream was my senior year. - Big Joe Silence from Android
I have those as well! Also: 3) I'm graduating from high school for the 3rd, 4th, 5th time because I kept going back to try to get better grades. I suddenly realise I'm a married mother of two hanging out with 17yo's and wearing a uniform but that's not weird. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Then there's the dream where I'm trying to text or call someone, and for some reason, I just CANNOT type in the right combination of characters/numbers. - Melly - #TeamMarina
Anxiety about the new boot camp experience and fear of failure? - Janet from FFHound!
No clue. But I have anxiety so it makes sense. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
I have that dream all the time. That, and the one where I'm running away from people with guns through a factory while I'm protecting a baby. - Steven Perez
In my recurring dream, I'm not wearing trousers and I'm going around trying to find some trousers to put on before the people around me realize I'm not wearing any. - bentley
First time on FriendFeed in sooooo long for this post! You never disappoint, Mary Carmen!! Hope the family is well!! :-) - Harold Cabezas from Android
HI HAROLD! Wr are alive and well over here, you? - Mary Carmen
Very well, Carmen!! Thanks for asking. How is motherhood treating you...? Being a parent is the best thing in the world; ten years as a parent and it just keeps getting better with every passing year... :-) - Harold Cabezas from Android
I love it. It is a lot of fun. She is growing too fast! - Mary Carmen
Awesome...! Very happy for you and the Mr. I'll catch up on your pics tomorrow/this weekend. :-) - Harold Cabezas from Android

Although I played sports my whole life I have never heard the "n-word" used more than our neighborhood courts when the 8 and 9 year old boys are playing. It's every other word whether a coached game or pickup, yes most players are black. Normally I'm just passing by not my problem.
But now we have a boy and if he wants I'll teach him basketball. He would play with those boys too. What am I supposed to do to handle that? What is he supposed to do? - Steve C Team Marina
Teach him to be respectful. - Janet from FFHound!
You're going to want to explain the context of the term. You don't want him saying it thinking it's a term of endearment when it will likely be looked at as disrespect. - Eric - It's My Thing
I know literally nothing about parenting, so take everything I say with a grain of salt. I do spend a lot of time reading and thinking about racism, and probably the most helpful thing you can do for a young person is educate them about the historical context of racism. That's how I got into this, being assigned Black Like Me and the autobiography of Frederick Douglass in school. Racism... more... - Lo
J Smooth makes a case for the "standard" of use here: https://www.youtube.com/watch... I get what he's saying; that it's the relationship people have with each other and with certain words that affect usage and received meaning. Like me calling my wife "honey" verses a perfect stranger. But I don't completely buy it. Even among "us" context is important. As it was with the... more... - MoTO: Team Marina
Somewhere down the line, using "nigger" even affectionately didn't sound right coming out of my mouth anymore. I can't explain why but it's something akin to calling my wife "bitch". I couldn't do it, even in jest. And she wouldn't allow it. I think it's instructional that in my generation, you couldn't get away with using nigger around your elders until you had some years behind you.... more... - MoTO: Team Marina
Bottom line, I'd suggest advising your son to avoid that minefield. - MoTO: Team Marina
Thanks peeps, he would definitely never say it if I had anything to do with it but will still be surrounded by it so I'll have to explain it to him like Lo said. And since I have coached many sports and teams before I'd have to figure out how I'd deal with it from that angle too. - Steve C Team Marina

I'm so confused. Or maybe the sign is confused. ;-)

Once I saw a store with a huge "GRAND OPENING" sign. Underneath it, in smaller letters, another sign read "Closed." I still wish I'd taken a pic. - YvonneM
Turns out there were two sets of doors and they wanted people to use the other set. Oh, well. - (Curtis) Alan Jackson

burns me up that there are anti-vaxers running around MPOW when we're all about science and evidence based work... UGH!
Oh yes, I had a friend who worked at NASA, and his wife was anti-vax, and he could never tell anyone about it. Now that I think about it, he might have secretly had the kids vaccinated? But I might be making that up. - Meg VMeg
Was that wife a librarian at NASA by any chance? - John Dupuis
New reality show - secret vaccinations. I might watch that. - Elizabeth Brown
yeah, and what happens after the wife found out the husband PROTECTED HIS (their) CHILDREN by getting them vaxxed. - Stephan!e•CogSc!L!brar!an
Upworthy post -- "Husband secretly vaccinates his children from deadly diseases. You won't believe what happens next!" - Joe
Sometimes I wonder if it's a matter of knowing too much, knowing where the studies are only mediocre, knowing the limitations of balancing extrapolation to the population vs. individual patients. I'm heavily pro-vax, but for other areas, I wonder. (eta and then read more literature, talk to my doc, etc--not just wonder ;) ) - Hedgehog
Oooh..relevant article to my thoughts above: http://www.eurekalert.org/pub_rel... - Hedgehog
Dan Kahan has done a lot of work in this area, especially about climate change http://papers.ssrn.com/sol3... - John Dupuis

Google debuts Inbox, a new way to stay on top of email - http://www.usatoday.com/story...
Google debuts Inbox, a new way to stay on top of email
"A decade ago, Google took the wraps off Gmail, the popular email service used by hundreds of millions the world over. Now that email is vibrating in pockets as often as it's pinging computers, the Internet giant is rethinking how your inbox should look and work. The result is Inbox, a new product that Google says is a smarter way to sort email. It's rolling out Wednesday by invitation only. "We want this to be your inbox for the next 10 years," Alex Gawley, product director of Gmail and Inbox, said in an interview. For a technology that everyone loves to hate, email is stubbornly popular." - Me from Bookmarklet
I'm excited by the continuing evolution of email. - Kevin Fox

Does anyone know if SF will be able to listen to the 2014 World Series with Miller, Fleming, Kruk and Kuip on the radio? It looks like ESPN and Fox might have it wrapped up so we have to listen to non-SF announcers on TV and radio.
I hope I'm wrong. - Heisenberg
This article says it is on KNBR 680, but doesn't say if it's our local announcers or ESPN announcers: http://www.examiner.com/article... - Heisenberg
Every game is on KNBR (680) regardless of tv status. That's how I'll be listening! [edit: I'm 99% sure they were the commentators on KNBR for the last two Series also. They don't get shoved out of the way.] - Brian Johns
Only local over-the-air has our announcers, near as I can tell. SiriusXM has ESPN announcers on both SF Giants station and KNBR 680. - Heisenberg
I'm listening to 680 over the air. The delay of the TV kinda sucks. - Rodfather from Android
Apparently my mom is listening to 680 with the MLB At Bat app. I guess my brother paid for the audio. Yeah it has Miller, Kruk, Kuip, Flemming. - Rodfather
Is MLB At Bat realtime or delayed? I have it, but I didn't think of it. Also, I'm listening to over-the-air so I can hear it realtime. - Heisenberg
I'm sure there's a slight delay from the ESPN stream but the delay might make it closer in sync with the TV feed. - Rodfather from Android
When I was listening to KNBR, the AM feed was a good minute ahead. - Rodfather from Android
This was the thing we gave up when TV went digital. I used to watch my Broncos with the local announcers. The delay was but half a second. Now, it's not watchable because it's 5-7 seconds. - Eric - It's My Thing

I fully admit the headline grabbed me so I clicked & now I can't stop staring at Renee Zellwegger's new face. Send help.
I know. I can't put my finger on what exactly changed, but something did. The eyes? - Eric - It's My Thing
Yeah, the eyes are SO WEIRD. She's not doing the squinty thing anymore... I can't quite put my finger on it either. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart
The article I read quoted some doctor as saying that her eyes used to be almond shaped and now they're rounder. Also said that the lower half of the face hadn't changed much. I did not look that carefully. - bentley
Something with her nose too. It's narrower. - Tamara J. B.
Good Lord. She doesn't look like the same woman! - LB creeps me out.
I don't know what makes me sadder, that she felt the need to change her appearance or that everyone feels the need to comment on it like it's anyone's business but her own how she looks. I really hate pop culture media. - Hookuh Tinypants
The fucked up thing is she did it probably for Hollywood and not herself. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
She's had a *lot* of plastic surgery over the years (look at Jerry Maguire, then Bridget Jones, then post-Jones....). I wonder if you have to do maintenance over time, when you start tucking and shaping and yanking and pulling your face around starting at age 21? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
oh, I just saw a picture-- she is unrecognizable! Going that drastic will make everyone comment.... DO you all remember that horrible sitcom with Jennifer Grey, post-nose job? Where she was also completely unrecognizable as the same person?? Facial features really define us... - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Yeah. It's shocking actually. - Zulema ❧ spicy cocoa tart from Android
I don't know that Bridget Jones is an apt comparison to show she's had a history of plastic surgery, since she notoriously gained 40+ pounds to play that role in both films. In general I've always found her to look quite lovely and I think she still looks quite lovely and I'm annoyed by both the industry that puts pressure on both men and women to try and stay young-looking and the general public who sit around and gawk and gab and criticize. - Hookuh Tinypants
Her unusual facial features were what I found most attractive about her. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
agree w/ starmama. She lost the squinty eyes and the giant lips. Looks very non distinct now - Laura Norvig
I miss her old eyes. They were so unique! I think she now seems to be a cross with Robin Wright. Regardless, when will she act again? - Yvonne Renee
Uh, she has a movie coming out in 2015. Even if you don't follow film/entertainment news, all these judgy OMG HER FACE articles have been mentioning this fact. Which is sad because it shows that everyone is so busy focusing on her appearance and what they have to say about it, they're missing the more relevant details. - Hookuh Tinypants
Here is a side by side picture comparison: http://www.eonline.com/photos... Honestly, she doesn't look that different to me. Maybe a bit thinner and a bit older, but I don't see anything that looks like surgery to me. - Ken Gidley
Yeah, I looked and looked, and it seemed like she'd gotten a little thinner. But it was mostly aged skin. Also her eye's seem to be because she doesn't have the strong lines of mascara to shape the eye, and her brows aren't shaped to accentuate the brow line. - NOT THE CRICKET

Some Millennials — And Their Parents — Are Slow To Cut The Cord - NPR http://www.npr.org/2014...

I was much more concerned about SARS and h1n1 (which actually put my kid in the ICU) than I am about ebola. And it's possible there are no longer any cases of ebola in the US. I hope folx are done panicking now.
I hope so too. The fact the all of Duncan's friends and family are now past the incubation period with no new cases should be seen as a very positive sign. - Stephen Mack

This is PERFECT “Why #Gamergaters Piss Me The F*** Off” by @ChrisWarcraft https://medium.com/@ChrisW... Chris Kluwe speaks truth to idiots #ftw
Like this: "... (#Gamergate, for those unaware, is what happened a bit over a month ago, where an angry neckbeard posted demonstrably false allegations about his ex-girlfriend, claiming she slept with video game site reviewers for better scores for her games (again, demonstrably false), and then a whole bunch of other angry neckbeards on the Internet went full Denis Dyack and spitfrothed themselves into national attention by making an array of threats on numerous female game developers, including ones about their death, tried to hide behind a shield of “it’s about journalistic ethics because they said gamers are dead,” and generally proved why the Internet needs to be burned to the ground and the ashes salted. If you’re curious about the details, here’s a good background link.) ..." - WarLord
Or this "... You slopebrowed weaseldicks with zero reading comprehension and even less critical thinking skills who think an article claiming “Gamers are dead” is something bad? Fuck me sideways with a sandblaster. It’s like all you can do is look at this collection of words, scratch yourself uneasily, and then run off to look for grubs. Your reaction (and I am not making this up,... more... - WarLord
This is the best thing I've ever read. AMAZING! - Heather
THIS 1000x. "In fact, #Gamergaters, if your concern really was ethics, the very first thing you would be saying about this whole mess is, “Holy shit, get these fucking misogynistic creeps away from us. Let’s find a different hashtag to assemble under RIGHT FUCKING NOW.” You’d be doing everything in your power to make sure the legitimate cause you’re concerned about wasn’t hijacked or used as a shield by those with no other agenda than to make women and minorities afraid, simply because they can." - rönin
