  • Also from Screw Bronze!, Manual or power wheelchair; my choice and why I made it. Rock on, Ms. McClung. :)

  • A quote of awesomeness from Screw Bronze!:

    I haven’t blogged awhile because I was on vacation and the internet computer was up a double grand staircase. Not exactly wheelchair accessible. And being on vacation I, of course, went and did everything I could (zodiac rides into the wilderness, boat rides across ocean channels as the tides make scores of whirlpools, spa treatments, getting down stairs into the bar, going to a sauna, seeing the local wildlife (I mean the people in a remote fishing town – skary!)). I was like a six year old at a birthday party, I was having so much fun, I kept getting sick (like when you ate the ENTIRE icing on the cake), but then as soon as I'd recover I run off and have more fun until the next incident. So, by the second day and third day of my “vacation” the resort kinda had this EMT guy who kept an eye on me most of the time. Still, when I wasn’t slumped over or laid out on some dock getting revived, I was plotting or starting some new adventure. Hey, I pass out lots of place, but here I could pass out in NEW places, while doing new and exciting things. Having to have oxygen and recover from a 50 mph zodiac boat trip where I watched young eagles learning to fly is WAY cooler than having to recover and have oxygen because I stood up to put the groceries in the fridge. Of course, I was in such bad shape once I got back home I had a sort of “medical vacation” to recover from my vacation (see, today was supposed to be my “all better” day). I’d like to say I’ve learned my lesson, and I have: “never give up, never surrender!” I have already booked a wheel along the beach tomorrow; as long as the sun shines and I have mobility in at least 50% of my limbs…that’s good enough for me (and remember; a new day, a new corset!).

    Emphasis mine. Also, though hers is a little more literal and healing, needing a vacation to recover from one's vacation is pretty much a constant.

  • Dictionary.com's Word of the Day for May 10: "mugwump: a person who is unable to make up his or her mind on an issue, esp. in politics." (Though in one of my high school history books, it summed it up as "Unreliable Republican." :P)

  • From Teh Beeb, How can human hair mop up the oil spill? Not to mention the hair of other animals. :P

  • From zevshir , Why the Left Has No Answer to the Right-Wing Lie Machine. (from truthout.org)

  • From bergeronprocess , Things That Can Make You Feel Like an Idiot Almost Instantly. You bet your ass I laughed out loud. (from hyperboleandahalf.blogspot.com)

  • Also from bergeronprocess , Ball Sack is the New Pussy:

    Letter to Dan Savage: "Wah wah wah my girlfriend cheated on me then left me and then I snooped through all her email wah wah wah now she won't forgive me waaaaaaaaaaah! What do I do? Signed, Can't Think of Anything Clever." (Paraphrased)

    Dan Savage: "You are a huge pussy, CTOAC—excuse me, sorry. Pussies are powerful; they can take pummeling and spit out a brand-new human being. What you are, CTOAC, is weak, vulnerable, and far too sensitive for your own good.

    What you are is a ball sack.

    Stop asking for your ex-girlfriend's absolution, sacky, stop begging for her forgiveness. So long as you're crawling to her, she can go on pretending that she was the injured party in your relationship. Forgive you? There's no reason for her to do that—there's no upside for her. So long as you're standing there wringing your hands and acting like a cringing, wounded pussy—excuse me: a dangling, freshly slapped ball sack—she wins. Move the fuck on already, sacky."

  • And another from bergeronprocess , because it's hilarious (and totally something my mom would do if she had an FB account, but she thinks Facebook is two words so I think I'm safe): 10 Ways Parents Can Humiliate Their Kids On Facebook. (from tremendousnews.com)

  • From the above link, 11 Ways To Become The Worst Facebook Friend Ever. (Wait, two FB links in a row? I spend like five minutes a WEEK at FB.) (from tremendousnews.com)

  • From bergeronprocess , After dark, the dirty work at Disneyland begins. Excerpt:

    "Disney and many other parks recognize that keeping it clean and refreshed, with all of those little details that you don't notice until they are missing, are important to the park's success," said Gene Jeffers, executive director of the Themed Entertainment Assn., a nonprofit organization of designers and builders of theme parks and attractions.

    Which is true--you expect theme parks to be clean and shiny. Which is why Water Mania (in Orlando, FL, and this is as far as the last time I was there, in the late 90's), which I found dirty--at least compared to the more popular, better-kept Wet 'n' Wild (also in Orlando), was such a disappointment to me. (I grew up in Titusville, which is half an hour out of Orlando, so I've been to a few of the theme parks.)

  • From driftingfocus , A priest, a rabbi, and... Kim Jong-il? Some "North Korean knee-slappers." :) (from gadling.com)

  • From atheism , Love Thy Neighbor? Not If He's Different. "New research reveals that people connected to organized religion are more likely to harbor racial prejudice."

  • From a comment at atheism about the above link, Ham. The Other Black Meat. About the "Hamitic Curse."

  • From bergeronprocess , Facebook's Gone Rogue; It's Time for an Open Alternative. Excerpt:

    I’d like to have my profile visible only to my friends, not my boss. Cannot.

    I’d like to support an anti-abortion group without my mother or the world knowing. Cannot.

    Setting up a decent system for controlling your privacy on a web service shouldn’t be hard. And if multiple blogs are writing posts explaining how to use your privacy system, you can take that as a sign you aren’t treating your users with respect, It means you are coercing them into choices they don’t want using design principles. That’s creepy.

    Oy. At least with LJ you can make custom filters!

    "I was also going to give a graduation speech in Arizona this weekend," he said. "But with my accent, I was afraid they would try to deport me."

  • From @TheOnion, Priest Religious, But Not Really Spiritual:

    BOSTON—Father Clancy Donahue of St. Michael Catholic Church told reporters Wednesday that while he believed in blindly adhering to the dogma and ceremonies of his faith, he tried not to get too bogged down by actual spirituality. "I'm not so much into having a relationship with God as I am into mechanically conducting various rituals," Donahue said. "To me, it just feels empty to contemplate a higher power without blindly obeying canon law and protecting the church as an institution." Donahue emphasized that although he did not personally agree with those who pondered the eternal, he had nothing against them.

    Beginning Lyric:

    We sailed from the port of indecision
    Young and wild with oh so much to learn
    Days turn into years as we try to fool our fears
    But to the port of indecision I return

  • Another awesome (and more lighthearted) poem, posted by bluebombardier :

    At Twenty-Eight

    It seems I get by on more luck than sense,
    not the kind brought on by knuckle to wood,
    breath on dice, or pennies found in the mud.
    I shimmy and slip by on pure fool chance.
    At turns charmed and cursed, a girl knows romance
    as coffee, red wine, and books; solitude
    she counts as daylight virtue and muted
    evenings, the inventory of absence.
    But this is no sorry spinster story,
    just the way days string together a life.
    Sometimes I eat soup right out of the pan.
    Sometimes I don't care if I will marry.
    I dance in my kitchen on Friday nights,
    singing like only a lucky girl can.

        —Amy Fleury

  • This bit of wisdom from tcpip at atheist about how morality can exist without "God":

    Language is established through an intersubjective consensus of the meaning of symbolic values.

    Morality is established through an intersubjective consensus of the rightness of behaviour.

  • From the above link, Stephen Hawking warns over making contact with aliens. Excerpt:

    In a series for the Discovery Channel the renowned astrophysicist said it was "perfectly rational" to assume intelligent life exists elsewhere.

    But he warned that aliens might simply raid Earth for resources, then move on.

    "If aliens visit us, the outcome would be much as when Columbus landed in America, which didn't turn out well for the Native Americans," he said.

    Mr Hawking thinks that, rather than actively trying to communicate with extra-terrestrials, humans should do everything possible to avoid contact.

    He explained: "We only have to look at ourselves to see how intelligent life might develop into something we wouldn't want to meet."
