Asking for a favor? How do YOU behave after asking?

confused meme - Asking for a favor? How do YOU behave after asking?

I ran into a frustrating situation recently and typed-out this mile-a-minute stream-of-consciousness post soon after. Instead of hitting “enter” and having yet another post out in Facebooklandia that could be interpreted as a downer, I went with the copy-and-paste-into-a-blog option. Here’s the situation: Co-worker posts a request seeking someone to help them out with something work-related.   1) I reply to the post informing them that I’ll let them know if I can help once I learn about one of the two possible dates for a prior commitment. No response,…

Irish author warns: Trial runs for fascism are now in full swing

Fintan O’Toole of the Irish Times To grasp what is going on in the world right now, we need to reflect on two things. One is that we are in a phase of trial runs. The other is that what is being trialled is fascism – a word that should be used carefully but not shirked when it is so clearly on the horizon. Forget “post-fascist” – what we are living with is pre-fascism. It is easy to dismiss Donald Trump as an ignoramus, not least because he is. But he has…

(A lynx at night. photographed by George Shiras) After looking at 62 mammal species on six continents, a recent study published in Science found that 83 percent of these species are doing more and more of their business in the dark rather than deal with humans and all of our accompanying guns, cars, noise and other forms of harassment.

Should we be posting politically on Social Media?

Politics

I’ve seen that posting about any point that is owned by either “the left” or “the right” is only going to bum people out and risk pigeon-holing (“holing” how does one “hole”?) the person posting it. Nobody’s opinion is going to be changed about anything. Any time I vote, sign a petition, or send a letter to my Congressman, I imagine how many posts I’ve seen from people that do neither and then I just sit back and enjoy the math on that. I think there’s also the risk of…

Animals The flashlight fish projects light that’s created by luminescent bacteria that live in the pockets below its eyes. Male seahorses carry the eggs and birth the babies. Also called the Mexican Hairless Dog, the Xoloitzcuintli breed was used by Aztecs for companionship, and occasionally for lunch. Prized for their body heat (hence the lack of fur), Xolos are still used in Mexico as nature’s hot water bottles. Why do angelfish feel safe inside the mouths of hammerhead sharks? They share a symbiotic relationship as natural toothpicks, picking out parasites from between…

Drunk fest-goer starts peeing on everyone (NSFW)

Drunk guy pees on everyone at music fest

Some fans got more than they bargained for when a drunk fest-goer dramatically fails to stay in his lane (while it isn’t suitable for work, there is no nudity shown) Usually one of our favorite shady spots at the fest but we’ll remember to look over our shoulders for drizzle from here on out! Here’s a super slow-motion shot Here’s a super duper slo-mo version… with dramatic musical score! and if that wasn’t slow enough for your inspection, here’s the super SUPER duper slow motion cut.   Please follow and…

New Jersey Governor Chris Christie confronts heckling Cubs fan

Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie confronts heckling Cubs fan.

During yesterday’s game in between the the Milwaukee Brewers and Chicago Cubs at Miller Park, Governor of New Jersey Chris Christie was walking down the aisle when a heckler sitting nearby started talking some smack. Christie approaches the fan, gets all up in his face, and calmly calls the fan a “big shot”, all while not even coming close to spilling a drop of cheese food from his nacho tray. Despite having something to say to Christie as he walked by, the fan seemed to not be too eager to…
