Watch This Woman Receive 100 Catcalls While Walking Around For A Day
"Ten hours of walking around New York City, 100 catcalls and one huge problem. Rob Bliss of Rob Bliss Creative makes viral videos for a living and decided to use his craft to shine a light on street harassment, a pervasive issue affecting females around the world. Partnering with actress Shoshana B. Roberts and Hollaback, a nonprofit movement launched by activists to end street harassment, Bliss packaged his production as a PSA and offers viewers a different perspective on the problem. "I felt like no one had ever really shown what it's like to experience street harassment, more or less," Bliss told The Huffington Post. "No one has -- from a third-party perspective, on the outside looking in -- been able to step back and look at it and watch it happen in front of them." His intent, he said, was to offer an "unbiased" look at what many women experience on a daily basis. "No messaging. No judgement. Let people view it as it is and talk about," he added. During filming, Bliss attached a... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet
The guy that walks with her is sooooo creepy. I would be flipping out. - Heather
No lie, Heather. Bliss says they chose jeans and a crew neck tee so people wouldn't says she'd invited it by how she dressed but when you read the FB comments attached to the HuffPo post, several people STILL say it was how she dressed. - Spidra Webster

"Marvel wasn't going to let the recent announcement of 10 forthcoming DC Comics movies go unanswered: On Tuesday at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood, Marvel laid out its own slate of films in its so-called "Phase 3," going into 2019. Marvel announced the full titles of nine new films (in addition to the already announced "Avengers: Age of Ultron" and "Ant-Man"). Here's a complete rundown of the new films and what they mean: Captain America: Civil War (May 6, 2016) Civil War was one of the most iconic storylines in modern comics, pitting Captain America against Iron Man in a battle over civil liberties as the government called for heroes to register their secret identities with the government. Iron Man sided with the government while the American icon Cap stood for his freedom-centric ideals. At the Marvel event, they teased fans by initially announcing Cap 3 as "Serpent Society" — a lesser known supervillain organization — but it turned out to be a misdirect before Civil War was... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

I received email from the FBI's Anti-Terrorist and Cyber Crime Division. They just want some credit card details. We could argue about minor details like the 62 typos but why I know that this is a scam? The real FBI already knows all about my banking.

Pope announcing church believes in Big Bang Theory has me dying to know their position on Frasier for all these years.
Like the Big Bang Theory and Evolution, the Church has accepted for decades that Frasier was not as good as Cheers, the Niles-Daphne will-they-won't-they storyline was dragged out, and that it was at least better than Friends. Amen. - Mark Trapp
I'd have no argument with that homily. - Micah from FFHound(roid)!

I'm freaking out about being a 1-car family right now. The minivan finally gave out. We can't buy another until our mortgage refinance goes through. Until then, all of the commitments for carpooling to school and driving for field trips are cancelled. =(
*hugs* I can totally understand your frustration. Any eta on when the refi will be done? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
That's the other thing... I can't get an answer from our mortgage broker. Waaaaaaa! - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
What about a cheap rental for a week or two? - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!
What about stealing one you can look up how to hot wire most vehicles online. Or so I've heard. - Steve C Team Marina

Over here, a lot of people I know use car-hire sites like Zipcar - is that sort of thing an option? - Iain Baker
I could check into using ZipCar, but I have carseats to deal with so I'm not sure how convenient that would be. I can rent a full-size car for about $180/week. That should get us over the hump, but it's not as ideal as having a minivan. - Yvonne Renee

I'm about to go completely insane and I think I've eaten all the Ben and Jerry's AND most of the Hy-Vee bakery output in eastern Kansas, but I'm almost a week without having had a cigarette and I think I might make it this time (check back in a year - that's when I tend to

Invasion drives quick evolution of lizard feet | Science News
Show all
"Evolution is often thought of as being such a slow process that it can’t be observed. That’s not true, but to happen quickly, there usually has to be some sort of strong pressure on a population to drive any sort of fast evolution. For Carolina, or green, anoles, a type of lizard from the southeastern United States, that pressure comes from an invader — the Cuban, or brown, anole. Cuban anoles arrived in South Florida in the 1950s, probably as stowaways in shipments of agricultural products from Cuba (a relatively common method of accidental introduction for invasive species) and over the next decades spread across the Carolina anole’s range. The two species have similar lifestyles and food requirements, so when they find each other living in the same neighborhood, fights for space, and probably food, occur. But the two species eventually find a balance: The Carolina anoles have not only moved to higher perches, but they also now have larger toepads that help them live at those new... more... - Spidra Webster from Bookmarklet

Who gets to do two hours of online state-mandated ethics web training today? This guy!
Lucky you. Go ahead and cheat on the quiz at the end. I say it is ok. - Joe
I think I pass as long as I spend 2 hours on it, regardless of the quizzes. The logic is similar to online traffic school. - Brian Johns
The website times out after a few minutes of inactivity and you have to log in again and pick up where you left off. 3 hours later I'm 50% done, but I've also gotten the toddler up, had breakfast, and read the paper. - Brian Johns
web-based ethics training on a saturday? eeww - imabonehead
Read the paper? What year is this? - Louis Gray
Update: Finished after 10:00 pm Sunday night and got an official looking pdf to prove it. The website says I spent 2 hours and 26 minutes on it. The training is good for two years. - Brian Johns
Are you feeling ethical now? - Spidra Webster
what the heck is this for? - Jonathan Disher
I feel so ethical now! This is because I'm on the Historical and Landmarks Commission for the City of Santa Clara. State law AB-1234 requires that I complete 2 hours of ethics training every two years. The city holds a group training session every two years but I missed it last month so I had to do the online version offered by the state. You can play along for free at home here: http://oag.ca.gov/ethics - Brian Johns

Tough choice! - Stephen Mack from iPhone
imo without a gps, it's not that useful unless you never run outside. - ؛ patrick
My Force needs to go. Thinking I'll take advantage of the trade in/recall. - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
Not a tough choice for patrick then. Surge is the only one that has gps built in. - Bruce Lewis
Bruce, that's my point. And if you get the surge (which is obviously no cheap), I don't think it's very different from other products out there in the market. For instance, Garmin makes very good sports watches. - ؛ patrick
I'm all over that Surge. As much as I hate anything bulky on my wrist, I will make the sacrifice for this. (and to be frank, as a runner, Garmin is horrendously overrated nowadays) - Hookuh Tinypants
$249.95 seems to be a good price too - ؛ patrick

A full week of boot camp, watching my food intake and drinking half my weight in water has resulted in a loss of 6 pounds and 6 inches off of my body. That includes 3 inches off my hips and 2.5 off my thighs. I'm a believer.
By half your weight in water, do you mean an oz of water for each pound? - Katy S
Yup. - Mary Carmen
No way!!! That's awesome!!!! You've worked so hard this week. How do you feel? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
(That sounds like enough water to drown me!!) - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
That's great MC!! Are you still doing all that crazy walking you were doing right after the baby was born? - RudĩϐЯaЯïan
Did you go on the weekend, too? - Yvonne Renee from FFHound!
I don't get to walk as much as I used to, but I still try to get out several times a week. I go on Saturday morning, except not this week because they were having an event. There is no session on Sunday. Rest day. - Mary Carmen from iPhone

Oh, wow, that was ugly. I feel rather stupid for worrying over it and working so hard to have a lot of inventory (lots of late nights). On the upside many of the sales I had were to repeat customers, I sold a 'honey' spoon, an angry fish and a santa; all of which I'm very proud of. That tells me I'm on the right track :-)
Does that mean they get to go in the shop? #silverliningforus Sorry, it didn't go as well as hoped though. - Marina's Godmother :-)
Yes, it means more stuff for the shop and FB auctions, very silver lining :-) - Shannon - GlassMistress
You can sell on FB? - Yolanda from Android
Also, I don't think it is stupid to be prepared. Better to have stock than not making the best of your table fee. - Yolanda from Android
