One witness told deputies she found it strange that the woman had been pushing the child for an unusually long period of time, possibly since the day before, Richardson said.

When the officers arrived they found the 24-year-old woman still pushing the child in the swing, and they realized immediately that the boy was dead, Richardson said.

The child had no signs of obvious trauma, she said, and had been dead for at least several hours.

Shit gives me some serious heebie-jeebies.

Discordian Recipes / Vote on this weekend's special!

So I got a big box of sea beans in and I'm torn between two dishes on how I want to use them this weekend. So, discriminating culinarians of PD, what say you?


No need to thank me, it's just one of many valuable services I provide.

This is RWHN's town. :lulz:

Organizers hoping to make recreational marijuana legal in Maine's second-largest city will launch their citywide signature-gathering campaign Monday, the state political director for the Marijuana Policy Project said Friday.

David Boyer said his group will launch its petition effort with a news conference in Lewiston where it intends to collect signatures from voters casting ballots in primary and joint charter commission elections Tuesday.

The petition would seek to make possession of up to 2˝ ounces of marijuana legal for recreational use under the city's ordinances.

If you guys could go to my restaurant's facebook page and click the link to vote for my lobster roll as the best lobster roll in Maine that would be wicked friggin' awesome!


I think this needs to be an emote, I just don't know for what.  :lulz:

...or THIS guy:

Jared Buzzell, of Lisbon, says he was searching for wild mushrooms Thursday when he saw a porcupine get hit by a car in Minot. Buzzell says he'd heard that a valuable mineral deposit used in Chinese medicine formed in the stomachs of porcupines.

He then cut open the dead porcupine to search for the mineral and instead found the baby.

He tells WMTW-TV ( he cut the umbilical cord and thought the baby porcupine was dead until he started massaging it and it began breathing.

..."Bukowski", you need to fucking deliver the goods.

So, yeah.


#12. Where to eat.

My summer just went from "full-tilt" to "flat-out insane".

Discordian Recipes / Tuna Carpaccio

Don't bother if you're one of those wussies that won't eat raw fish. Go back to Applebees.

This is good for cocktail parties and other small gatherings, so this recipe should make tapas/hors d'ouevres for 6 or a fairly substantial appetizer for 4.

12 oz. fresh tuna, yellowfin or better. Loins are preferable to steaks as they are easier to trim down into the uniform 1/4 inch die that you are going to achieve with a VERY sharp knife.


put the ingredients in a large bowl in the order that follows

2 oz. EVOO
pinch kosher or sea salt
pinch black pepper
pinch ground coriander
1/2 oz. fresh tarragon, finely minced
1/2 oz. fresh basil, fine chiffonade
1 small green onion or one stalk large green onion, finely minced
mix ingredients together well, add
1 oz. cane vinegar
large pinch brown sugar or heaping tablespoon honey, your choice
1 oz. Huy Fong brand Chili Garlic sauce.

mix together well, toss tuna thoroughly in mixture until well coated. Allow to sit at room temperature (good sashimi is properly served at room temperature and if you have decent fish you'll have nothing to worry about especially after you've tossed the fish in what is essentially a vinaigrette) for 10-12 minutes and use that time to butter both sides of 6 large or 12 small rounds of french bread and pan-fry in a skillet until lightly browned and slightly crispy on both sides. If you did 6 large rounds, cut them in half with a sharp knife. Take the tuna out of the bowl you tossed it in and put it in your fanciest small serving bowl. The idea is to keep as much of the fresh herbs in there as possible but let the excess oil and liquid drain off so the tuna is lightly coated but not saturated. Put the bowl in the middle of a serving platter and arrange the warm bread rounds around it in a circle, if you wanna make it look all pretty. Maybe even garnish it with some shaved reggiano or grana padano or something like that, or some gremolata.

If serving as tapas, arrange 1 oz. Tuna on each piece of pan-grilled bread with appropriate garnish.

For those on a low-carb or gluten-free diet, instead of the bread rounds you can substitute either some good tomatoes, halved and lightly broiled or, if you want to keep it entirely raw as well you can use thick-cut large slices of cucumber, sliced on the bias to give a larger surface area. The rest of the recipe is gluten free.

For really real, with an actual salary that doesn't totally insult me and everything!

There's a catch! Of course there's a catch!

It's my old job! In Maine! Rural eastern Maine! And it doesn't come with insurance! But it's a 50% raise over what I make now so I can probably afford to pay the penalty and go to the Dominican if I actually need medical care! But with the cost of living factored in it's probably only a 25% raise! ECHGF hates the idea of moving to Maine! But she'd get prime bartending shifts in the summer and be able to work part-time and go to school the rest of the year even though she hates the cold! I love the idea of being back in charge of a kitchen where I can actually cook awesome food the way I want to cook it! But I also still hate being cold!

I am completely torn, PD!


If minimum-wage opponents weren't already shitting bricks, they're in for an awfully uncomfortable bowel movement: A new poll finds a stunning 68 percent of Seattle voters support a straight-up hike in the city's minimum wage to $15 an hour. No exemptions, no phase-ins, no strings attached.

The news for opponents only gets worse the further you delve into the details: 35 percent of voters "strongly support" the proposal, compared to only 14 percent who "strongly oppose," while support holds fast throughout the city and in every demographic subgroup except Republicans.

And in case opponents were hoping to console themselves with the thought that this is just some shoddy pro-labor propaganda (the poll was funded by a coalition that includes Working Washington, UFCW 21, Nick Hanauer, SEIU Healthcare 1199NW, the Teamsters, and the MLK County Labor Council), well, no luck there. The survey of 805 likely Seattle voters—an unusually large and robust sample—was conducted January 14 through January 22 by the reputable polling firm EMC Research, with a margin of error of ± 3.5 percentage points.

I hope it passes, and I hope it forces similar legislation either at the county level for Snohomish/King/Pierce counties or at least on a city-by-city basis among the larger cities in the Puget Sound region.
