Taking the 100k Steps Fitbit Challenge and Raising Money for Charity
On Monday, Stephen and I have a crazy plan to set a new personal record for Fitbit steps. The goal? 100,000 steps in a single day, blowing away my previous personal best by more than 50 percent, and coming close to fifty miles walked - while also helping raise money for Camp Taylor, a free summer camp for children with heart disease, in memory of Riley Norton, the son of my friend and colleague Ken Norton. - Louis Gray from Bookmarklet
Who's this Stepeh guy? :) - Stephen Mack
No idea STEPHEN. NO IDEA. - Louis Gray
You go guys!! Maybe I'll try to join you for a lap - my next badge is at a measly 25K steps... - Ken Gidley
We'd love to have you for some or all, Ken! That's for everyone else here, too. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Hey Bruce, I think @Fitbit should be promoting this on their channels. :) - Louis Gray
What about … sleep?! - Amit Patel
Sleep is a waste of time and unproductive Amit. - Louis Gray
What could be a bigger waste of time than walking? - Todd Hoff
Not walking? - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Walking or running for charity is never a waste of time. As a fellow charity racer and Fitbit fanatic, I'm proud of Louis and Stephen for being so awesome! I did 65K during my marathon day (29 miles total including walking to/from the race), so I know y'all can rock this so easy! Kick butt, gentlemen! <3 - Hookuh Tinypants from FreshFeed
Thanks Amanda! - Louis Gray
Thanks also from me. - Stephen Mack

I can now say I've played cards of humanity. I can also say that it is highly unlikely I will ever play it in mixed company.

Step mom went out for some last minute shopping so I hauled over to their house and snapped a few more photos oh the pup. Much better this time, but this dog will not look at the camera, grr. I'd have liked one good head on shot. Ah well. Here goes, pick three please.

Excuse me, are you the sommelier? Yes. I'd like to know what pair well with a $2,000+ car repair bill? Yes sir, I believe a leaking water heater that has flooded you laundry room and requires a complete replacement would be just the pairing. Well, that is exactly what I'll have. The fucked up special please.
Sorry. I wish to reject this pairing and ask for one that will keep me sane! Because this bitch is about to lose her mind with all the shit we've dealt with the last few months! - Elena from iPhone
Dang, that is not fair. - Marie
:( I'm sorry, guys. - Jenny H. from Android
Downsizing the water heater size helps on price, but it's still four digits of fail. Installation happening now. - Eric - ill subliminal

I am so ready for this year to be over. It has been one thing after another. Hopefully 2015 will be a lot easier on our wallet! - Elena
I don't know, but a bottle of whiskey seems like a much better pairing to me. - April Russo

Jayden brought home two huge boxes from school, filed with food donations. I think everyone who donated shops at Trader Joe's and Whole Foods. Fancy stuff! More pasta than I can store so I'm giving some to other folx. Way different (better) than the food bank stuff.
And not one can of green beans! Now THAT'S what's up. Canned green beans are disgusting & they're in almost every donation box. lol. Just gross. - Starmama from FFHound(roid)!
Maybe gross, but they were one of the few things that ever came from the food bank that wasn't all carby & toxic for my hubby. We actually appreciated those green beans (and the rare can of tuna) and were hoping for them, rather than another can of peas, corn, white potatoes, sweet potatoes, or carrots. - April Russo
Brian Johns
4 more released from Guantanamo today. 132 left, 64 of which have been cleared for release (for years).
That's crazy. I wish we'd shut it down like Obama said. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
I really do believe he's working on it. I think he lost focus for a couple years but I think/hope he's got this back on track. At least for the ones that have been "cleared for release". - Brian Johns

Looks like a bunch of intoxicated individuals just dropped of several stolen vehicles right in front of our property.
In a way I'm glad our dog was inside, she would certainly have attacked. RCMP notified. Vehicles locked. Buildings locked. Dog outside as early warning. - Stephan from iPhone
RCMP were here very quickly looking for them. - Stephan from iPhone
Mary Carmen
So first things first, did he actually commit the crime?
I think if he did not actually murder her, that he knows exactly what happened and for some reason is not coming clean about the details. The obvious other person who could be involved is Jay. He seems shady and fuck and the discrepancies in his story are troublesome. Also, the dude who found the body....not sure I'm buying his story either. So many doubts and questions. - Mary Carmen
I'm far more suspicious of Jay than of Adnan. I don't think he did it, and I think even the re-creation of events to try to mimic the timeline didn't take into account far too many factors to ring true. SO many questions! - Julie Kane from iPhone
Jay seems untrustworthy. But I don't fully trust Adnan either. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Mary Carmen
Another thing I find "interesting:" dude has been in jail for 15 years for a crime he claims he didn't commit, yet he has no alternative theory for the crime. He never once offers up what he thinks happened. It just seems weird to me.

The fact that attacking a multinational corporation somehow can give you leverage over the government of a nation-state just makes it clear that the existence of multinational corporations are totally antithetical to the continued existence of nation-states.

not sure what you mean by web 2.0 but I hit twitter every morning for a quick scan of the news, feedly for the blogs I want to read, and tumblr is a distraction for my increasingly fractured mind. I think of tumblr as a glossy magazine where I flip through the pages. - MoTO: #TeamMarina
Feedly, Twitter, Tumblr and Facebook. Oh, and Ello, from time to time. - Steven Perez from Android
Yeah I guess I should add that I do use Facebook to interact generally with family and a few friends. But Facebook's noise to signal ratio is too high for me to use it for much else. - MoTO: #TeamMarina, I keep intending to use facebook but don't generally get to it. I caught up with Instagram yesterday, thanks to the fact that I'm only following something like 4 people there. - Bruce Lewis

Barry, I'm not sure what I meant by Web 2.0, other than there are sites that have some social component to them, but are not really thought of as social networks, e.g. Yelp. - Heisenberg

Wasn't ready for beta. Very few features at beta. More now, but no users. - Stephen Mack from iPhone
Just Twitter (for light use) -- not Facebook or Google+. Still waiting for any other service to catch up with Friendfeed -- and for the next generation of a Friendfeed-like service to appear -- someone is bound to develop it. - Sean McBride
Any interesting features that FriendFeed doesn't have? - Heisenberg

I just checked out the latest Twitter analytics features -- great stuff. A future version of a Friendfeed-style social media platform should include analytics at this level (and better) for all individual and group feeds (*especially* group feeds, which are ripe for hundreds of analytic snapshots). - Sean McBride
Sean, I'm interested in your feaure list. - Heisenberg

Heisenberg -- give me a few days to find time to compile it -- the notes are scattered across six or seven years. - Sean McBride
My admiration and love for the brilliant design of Friendfeed continues unabated -- in fact, it keeps increasing as I compare it to new inferior services. - Sean McBride
Has everyone noticed that Friendfeed is often more efficient than email for private one-on-one and group communications? Much less cruft. Much swifter. Much easier to browse over time. Also superior to text messaging in many cases, in terms of interface. - Sean McBride
Sean, you should look at Slack if you have a group of people that interact. It's better than FriendFeed for a slightly different application area. - Heisenberg
Will do. - Sean McBride

I am out of both butter and salt. Who runs out of salt?
yesterday i finished making salt dough ornaments, and realized i had used the last of the bazillion canisters of salt that my ex-husband bought 5 years ago when he decided that everyone needed to stockpile salt in case of the apocalypse. - Jenica
I had to switch to the sea salt for a couple of Thanksgiving recipes. A canister of salt lasts a long time, so I never think to check if it's running out. - RepoRat
Seriously. I think this is the first time in my life I've actually used an entire thing of salt before moving. - laura x from iPhone

Over Half of Dr. Oz’s Advice Is Unfounded: Study -
Over Half of Dr. Oz’s Advice Is Unfounded: Study
"“One out of three recommendations from The Dr. Oz Show has believable evidence, and about half of the recommendations on The Doctors has believable evidence,” Mike Allan, another Alberta medical professor and co-author of the study, said in a statement. Of the health recommendations that appeared on The Dr. Oz Show, researchers found evidence to support 46 percent, meaning that 46 percent of the time the show gave solid advice. But 15 percent of the time, the advice directly contradicted best available evidence. A whopping 39 percent of the time, the researchers found no evidence to support the advice." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet

"In a medical breakthrough that should come as welcome news for millions of at-risk Americans, University of Pennsylvania cardiologists announced Tuesday that taking one aspirin tablet and a fifth of bourbon daily can "significantly reduce" an individual's awareness of heart attacks. " - - Andrew C (✔)
^^LOL (1) I know an old school doc who allegedly told his nonagenarian patient to take an aspirin and some bourbon while he was having a stroke because the doc was certain the ER would totally kill his patient. The patient totally survived with minimal residual deficits. #DefinitelyNotMedicalAdvice (2) the problem with ASA 325 mg + EtOH 40% x 750 ml p.o. daily is that that's going to eat a hole in your stomach and/or esophagus pretty quick ;) #ProceedWithCaution - Victor Ganata

Interesting. I had thought LEDs were still less light per watt than the sodium lamps used in streetlights… ( - Amit Patel
I've lived through every change of street lighting except gaslight. Every color change since incandescent has been jarring and seemed Wrong. Colors were always changed from "real". When my street switched to LEDs I was charmed. The first few nights seemed eerie. But in a way the street now looks more natural. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
