It's all down hill from here. - Steve C Team Marina
Just when I was lamenting the lack of search for posts on FB the other day, well whaddaya know, you can now search for posts on FB.

Why in the name of all that is good and pumpkin pie are you all not on Facebook yet?
Facebook is where I stab myself in the eye. - Meg VMeg
I'd pay to see that! ;) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
facebook is dying. at least that's what i heard - Sir Shuping is just sir
I'm already missing how friendfeed does the river after 5 minutes of being back on here - Scoble, Alex Scoble

LOL, Johnny, you are on Facebook...very funny though. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Facebook is where grandparents and co-workers are. - lris
What's Facebook? - Steven Perez from Android
Real answer: because there are one million (or fewer) people on FF and one billion (or more) on Facebook. (I'd guess most of us also have FB accounts, but I certainly spend ten times as much time here among a smaller, more select group.) - Walt Crawford
I keep asking myself why I am still on there. - Jim: meatvalve.
I'm there, but I prefer to be here. - The First NoeLB from Android
I'm on there once a year to wish someone a happy birthday. I like it here better. - bentley
Because FF is still better than FB even if FB has the critical mass. - Spidra Webster
Isn't the better question why are you on Facebook? - Todd Hoff
Facebook? Eww! - WoH: Professor MOTHRA
I'm there, and I'm in the Friendfeed group. Because that's where we meet to complain that ff is down, and announce when it's back up again. - m9m, Crone of FriendFeed
I like LB's answer. - Stephen Mack from iPhone

Facebook is for head-shaking and lying and pretending to approve of assholes you work with. - Big Joe Silence

Because Also, what WoH: Professor MOTHRA said. - AHnix (Anna Haro)
Here because of the Shannon–Hartley law. Social networks are all about the signal/noise ratio. - David Lounsbury
The real question is, why is Facebook not on you? - Steele Lawman from Android
I'm on FB because most of my iPad games require it. Also because despite the fact I "deleted" my real account, it's still there. - Heather

When did buying toys become so difficult? Skylanders? Trap Team?
As far as I can tell, this merges the whole Pokemon thing of catching new characters, but of course you have to have a trap for each of them. - Jennifer Dittrich
Skylanders prints money, so I distrust it on principle. It prints so much money that Disney and Nintendo rolled out their own versions (Disney Infinity and Amiibos). I really worry that the whole concept is a giant money sink for consumers/fans. - Andrew C (✔)
It totally is a giant money sink. I've been lucky to avoid Skylanders so far. My kid has asked for the Trap Team starter but he hasn't been too noisy about it since he's still rather engrossed in Minecraft. Plus we still haven't even finished the original Skylanders game which we got for free when my cousin gifted the entire set to us after the second set (Giants or something) came out. - rönin
My nephew just got the new Trap Team and he couldn't stop talking about getting new traps. He even told my mom, "How many can you afford?" Like Disney Infinity and the new Nintendo Amiibos, it's a huge money sink. I looked up the 8 pack of traps and it's $40. Ridiculous. - Rodfather
He was showing me this cardboard thing to put the traps on and talking about collecting all of them. There's 38(!) of them. That's not even including the new figurines. He kept saying "I need these!" I said no, you don't need any of them. You want them. You already have enough Skylanders. - Rodfather
My sister tells me that my nephew loves this. Then says she bought some of the figures and that I should get him a "trap." I don't know what the hell that is and looking at Toys R Us' website doesn't help. I'm going to tell her to just send me the link to what he wants. - Mary Carmen
It's one if these. There's different elements. I ended up ordering a 3 pack with tech, magic, and earth since it was cheaper than the others. - Rodfather from Android
Thank you! I'm looking at it. What the hell is this? - Mary Carmen
In this new game you can trap enemies with those traps and use them an as ally. It's sort of like a pokeball. So they can bring those traps to a friend's house and use those monsters. Or buy all the traps so you can have all 38 trappable monsters. - Rodfather from Android
When you buy the game it comes with this portal that connects to the console via USB. There's a slot for a trap and when you come across a monster in the game that you can trap it saves it to the trap. - Rodfather from Android
Since you can only trap a monster with the appropriate element, it kinda forces you to buy more traps. So like to trap a earth monster you need a earth trap. - Rodfather from Android

Due to my ridiculously stupid oven these were undercooked even after two hours. I was so sad :o( - Melly Claus

Never heard of these but I now have a recipe bookmarked - bentley

Also, you could also steam them upside down over a pan of water for a few minutes before hand. - Johnny

I just learned how camels walk from watching Caillou.
By putting one hoof in front of the others? :D - Scoble, Alex Scoble
^^Geez Scoble! Camels have toes not hooves!!! - Shannon - GlassMistress
Sorry, I did not watch Caillou. - Scoble, Alex Scoble
By putting one foot in front of the others? :D (happy now?) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Better .. but I was mostly amusing myself over camel toe :-D - Shannon - GlassMistress
When they walk they move both legs on the same side simultaneously. So one side then the other. Unusual as most animals don't. - Mary Carmen from iPhone
Also why they're called "Ships of the Desert" their gait makes them sway like a ship and can cause unexperienced riders to have motion/sea sickness. - Scott. Cat Herder.
بی تربیتا، انگشت شتر؟ خودتون رو زدید به اون راه یا خیال کردید ما سرمون نمیشه؟ :دی - ووووزلا
Interesting...what other animals walk like that? - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Caillou and Kipper are kid ambien. - ♫Maurice the Trainer♫
Cats and Giraffes. - Scott. Cat Herder.
Hmm, I was thinking that cats walk that way - Scoble, Alex Scoble
Cats walk like that??? I never noticed. - Mary Carmen
I'm definitely gonna need a translation. Google is failing me. - Mary Carmen
Cats prowl like that...they are too cool to walk. ;) - Scoble, Alex Scoble
I remember riding on a camel. It made a ship seem rock-stable by comparison. - Walt Crawford
Two Fort Worth American Eagle Employees Strangled, Burned the Body of Co-Worker, Cops Say | Dallas Observer -
Two Fort Worth American Eagle Employees Strangled, Burned the Body of Co-Worker, Cops Say | Dallas Observer
"Police say Clarence Mallory and Carter Cervantez thought they got away with their first theft -- an $18,000 deposit absconded with from the Hulen Mall's American Eagle's safe after-hours in August -- so they decided to do it again. This time, they were going after a bigger score, the store's Black Friday take, estimated to have been between $40,000 and $50,000 by an American Eagle loss prevention officer. This time, it wasn't going to be as easy as the theft on August 24. Mallory and Cervantez didn't have inside access any more. They hadn't been prosecuted over the summer, but they had been fired from their jobs at the store. In the first crime, police say, Cervantez left the back door unlocked at closing and a hooded Mallory waltzed in, walked right to the safe and grabbed the cash. This time the duo would need keys. They decided to get them, the Fort Worth Police Department says, from Ashlea Harris." - Jessie from Bookmarklet

Got chatting to Josh after the kids went to bed, then had trouble settling down to do some work, hence I've only just finished at 1am, and now I remember I have to be up super early to get Josiah to school early to find out what class he'll be in next year.
I also just realised Emily hasn't woken up with her usual Tuesday night night terrors yet. Normally happens within two hours of her going to bed. Hmmmmm. - Melly Claus

Orgone - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
"Orgone energy is a hypothetical universal life force originally proposed in the 1930s by Wilhelm Reich. [...] Reich's theories held that deficits or constrictions in bodily orgone were at the root of many diseases—including cancer—much as deficits or constrictions in the libido could produce neuroses in Freudian theory (also discredited). He created the Orgone Institute to pursue research into orgone energy after he immigrated to the US, and used it to publish literature and distribute material relating to the topic for more than a decade. Reich designed special "orgone accumulators"—devices ostensibly collecting and storing orgone energy from the environment—for improvement of general health or even for weather control." - Eivind from Bookmarklet

Powerful, potentially damaging storm to bring very heavy rainfall and high winds to Northern California : California Weather Blog
"One additional thought: near-shore ocean temperatures off the coast of California remain exceptionally warm, which has been contributing to California’s record warmth this year. As witnessed during last week’s storm, these warm ocean waters have also led to a local increase in near-shore atmospheric instability during convective regimes and may also be acting as a source of additional lower-atmospheric moisture during storm events this winter. Thus, it’s possible that these exceptionally warm ocean temperatures could modestly boost precipitation rates associated with the upcoming heavy precipitation event, especially near the coast." - Amit Patel from Bookmarklet
It was definitely warm on the coast today. Some big waves too. - Todd Hoff

An end to the battle for the armrest? -
"Could this device finally bring a peaceful end to the great arms race in the sky? That's what the makers of Soarigami, a plastic divider that allows air passengers to comfortably share an armrest, are claiming. The device, to go on sale for about $30 in early 2015, balances atop the existing armrest to create an extended leaning platform that prevents the horrors of actual physical contact." - Steve C Team Marina from Bookmarklet
It could be bundled with the thing that prevents the seat from reclining. - Heisenberg
But why does it look like an airmail envelope? - Soup in a TARDIS
Completely useless when the person sitting in the next seat has their entire body/torso overhanging the armrest. :/ - Ken Gidley

Gotta say SFO's new Terminal 2 (American, Virgin America) might be best terminal in US now after the upgrades rest of the airport still blows. :) Lots of space, lots of light, lots of good unique food.
is it unique good food? or just good unique? - Sir Shuping is just sir
I love that terminal. Also, Virgin is the best airline! - Tamara J. B. from FFHound(roid)!

Funny story. I was so engrossed in Soda Crush Saga I didn't notice my driver was taking me to San Jose airport. - Laura Norvig from iPhone
Oh god, I was annoyed by the food in the American terminal at SFO. Sometimes a person just wants something basic. Took way too much energy and effort to find basic food that wouldn't cost me an arm and a leg. I was much happier with the other end of the flight - the American terminal at O'Hare. Now that place is awesome. :D - Hookuh Tinypants
Next time I want to try Cat Cora's Kitchen - forgot that was there. - Laura Norvig
Hmm Hookuh I am like you in searching for basic I can't eat most fancy food and don't like the rest but I had ample choices when looking around and the tacos at Andeleje (sp?) ended up being perfect under ten bucks for a meal and best tacos i've had in a while. But it's very subjective I know. :) - Steve C Team Marina

Some really impressive team juggling stunts. - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
An acquaintance who was a juggler was stopped at the US/Canada border with his juggling knifes while on his way to a gig at a convention. Canada wasn't sure about letting him in. Fortunately, he had a photograph a friend had taken -- this was before the age of Photoshop -- that showed him and his partner juggling a whole lot of knives and all the knives were in midair in a beautiful arc. Canada let him in. - bentley
