  • A friend of mine can’t grow corn in her garden because her cat eats the little stalks before they can even start to grow into corn. He leaves everything else alone but goes mad for corn greens.

  • You don't have to fear these things
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Missing_stair

    The missing stair is a metaphor for a person within a social group or organization who many people know is untrustworthy or otherwise has to be "managed," but around whom the group chooses to work by discreetly warning newcomers of their behavior, rather than address the person and their behavior openly. The "missing stair" in the metaphor refers to a dangerous structural fault, such as a missing step in a staircase; a fault that people may become used to and quietly accepting of, that is not openly signposted or fixed, and that newcomers to a group or organization are warned about discreetly.

  • You don't have to fear these things
  • The church I grew up in offered "yoga style stretching class" that did not have any heathen influences like gongs or deep breathing or Sanskrit names for stuff, was separated by gender, did not allow yoga pants or bare midriffs and avoided any postures that flaunted the privates. You know.. to avoid giving Satan(TM) a foothold in your nether bits.

  • Man charged with throwing 11 electric scooters in Idaho river
  • No, I get it. It's just a silly title because you are "charged" with crimes outlined in the state or federal penal code, in this case "felony malicious injury to property and misdemeanor resisting or obstructing officers." The way it is worded implies that there is a special law in Idaho that forbids throwing eleven electric scooters into the Snake River.

  • Man charged with throwing 11 electric scooters in Idaho river
  • He looks so pleased with himself. Not going to lie, I would have been watching like I had tickets if I saw a bunch of cops failing to chase down and then creating a perimeter for a smug ass dude on a one wheeled scooter.

  • What product have you purchased based on advertisment from modern podcasts and youtube channels that have worked out well?
  • I kinda like Magic Spoon cereal. It sticks to your teeth and has artificial sweetener (allulose) but it's pretty tasty and very low carb and comes in lots of fun flavors. I currently have the Fruit Loops flavored one. Was all over youtube a while back.

    Apple Rankings by a guy who has big feelings about apple varieties.

    >🏅 #1 RANKED YELLOW APPLE > >The Opal apple looks like it shit itself. I apologize for being uncouth but there is no more apt observation. Just look at the top of it. The Opal apple looks like a jaundiced, freckled, unwiped anus. In fact, this may be the ugliest apple of the modern era. That being said, if you’re going to be an ass, you might as well be a good ass. And like a good ass, the Opal apple is exceptionally sweet and juicy. In fact, the complex flavor profile featuring hints of banana, coconut, and pear make this Czech-born, oddly-named monstrosity a delight to consume. And while the outside may be stained with a toddler’s accident, in an ironic twist, the interior of the apple does not brown for quite some time. So I say, if you’re looking to spice up your life with something a little different, close your eyes and eat ass. Who am I to judge? > >BONUS POINTS: +2 Taste

    No spoilers please, but does Old Man’s War get better?

    I’ve been really enjoying John Scalzi’s catalog- Started with Starter Villain (delightful!), The Kaiju Preservation Society (Sweet..), Lock In + Head On (fun who-done-its), The Android’s Dream (clever, enjoyable read), Agent to the Stars (funny, creative, pretty good).

    I’m half way through the first book of Old Man’s War and it’s depressing AF. I don’t see how it’s going to get any more light hearted, given the subject matter. All the aliens are enemies, more battle scenes than anything else, graphic descriptions of war injuries and deaths.. I’m not really compelled to keep going. Can anyone vouch for it being worth it to continue?

    Edit: I'm realizing that "better" isn't a good descriptor. I guess what I mean is "Will there be fewer graphic descriptions of injuries and death; as well as general despair on the part of the MC." It is a "good" book by all metrics except "feel-goodiness" and "Not making me queasy at descriptions of faces being blown apart." I'd come to expect a light and clever romp from John Scalzi, and from everyone's replies, he is more varied in his styles than I'd previously been aware.

    I'd been half hoping this would all resolve into a lovely, heartwarming story about how the universe was saved by a race of benevolent, highly intelligent cats who tricked everyone into getting along. I tried to go further this morning and am, for now going to set it aside after another scene with an exploding face.

    Thanks to all who replied!

    www.inquirer.com A river otter took a selfie in Ridley Creek, ending a 100-year absence for ‘the most elusive aquatic animal in Pa.’

    The sighting shows that the revival of the animal, which was once nearly extirpated from Pennsylvania, continues throughout the region.
