Sheogorath is a trip.  I love doing that quest. 

Also, Hey Suu!

Good luck. Hope you're not dying.

When I breathe in just above normal amounts, I get a very very sharp pain in my chest just under where I suppose my heart is. Feels like something is pressing on my ribs or stabbing me there. Shortly after the pain, I have to take shallow breaths. And I have to avoid yawning or the pain becomes so much that I would probably pass out. I went to sneeze earlier and the pain was so bad the sneeze stopped mid-start. This kinda thing happens from time to time but usually only lasts a few minutes. It's been going on for an hour or so now. Should I go to the doctor?

I've had that forever.  It's probably a cramp, but if you don't have to pay any fees, a doctor's visit won't kill you.  At least see if you can talk to your doctor before coming in.

Except, you know, most of Europe.

And the fact that it isn't culture that grants benefits, but the government.

I suck at fb photos, but I saw this one,

Isn't is weird in
AMERICA ... our flag
and our culture offend
so many people ...
but our benefits don't ??


Help me locate a thread... I recall there being a great thread around here where somebody was talking about That Good Anarchist Utopia and people smacked some sense into him. Actually there's probably a dozen threads like that.

Where did the "I'm gonna take your sandwich" meme come from?

 I need to smack some sense into a deluded anarchist and I think that thread might have been a right and proper Chair Leg of Truth.

Was that one of Captain Utopia's?  It kind of sounds like the one he ended up going full potato over and that's why he changed his name to "Captain Utopia."

Xaz, 11 is 4th grade, or the second-to-last year of elementary school (unless that elementary school has 6th, also).  That's when kids start learning their multiplication and division, and fractions.  Even in 8th, I still remember going through fractions and geometry.  Algebra wasn't until 9th, when kids were STILL having problems with x and /.

Shouldn't the two be equally emphasized?  Is that a dumb question?

I'm not an advocate, but apparently the purpose is to teach kids how to use math that aren't going to be math or science majors.

You can memorize 12x13, but figuring out how much 37% off of a $53 purchase is both more useful and more flexible.

I suppose that makes sense.  But given the trouble the monkey has with basic addition and subtraction, adding rote memorizing to the curriculum seems like it could help, too.  But then again, maybe not, because that would undermine the common core method.

Shouldn't the two be equally emphasized?  Is that a dumb question?

Let me know what you guys think about this train of thought before I post it on social media:

An explanation of all those Common Core v Traditional Arithmetic complaints:

Let’s say you’re in a cooking class, one which is graded by a teacher.

You spend a semester learning how to sharpen, hold, and slice with a six-inch chef’s knife.

You have a test where you must dice an onion.

You peel an onion and throw it into a food processor.

Even though you end up with a diced onion, you didn’t use any skills you were taught that semester, and the teacher says you did it “wrong”.

You complain that the onion ended up diced, and argue that using a knife is stupid.


Because I just woke up, and haven't been good at making connections recently, I don't get it.  But then, I was finishing high school when common core became a thing, so I don't really know what it is.

Iptuous!  Hey!

Mostly, yeah. Yourself?

Last month I made tea made with 6 black plums skinned and cut into tiny pieces, more pineapple bits, dried goji berries, cloves, and a kiwano.  Don't bother with the kiwano, I only bought it because I remembered I bought one before, and then when I got home I remembered I had no clue what to do with it the first time I bought it.  It doesn't really add anything to the tea, although it is tasty on its own.


On top of buying white tea leaves, and a passion fruit tea with a black tea base, I bought the following:

Dried hibiscus flowers and juniper berries

Chamomile flowers

Coriander seeds and lavender flowers

and dried, crystallized ginger

I put 2 parts each of lavender, chamomile, coriander, and hibscus, one part juniper, and somewhere between 1/2 to 2/3 parts ginger in this container, which I fucking love:

I will make a cup of tea and tell you if it is tasty.  From the supposed calming nature of the chamomile and lavender, and the supposed digestive calming properties of lavender and ginger, I'm calling this SHUT THE FUCK UP BRAIN, SIT THE FUCK DOWN GUTS tea.

William Carlos Williams, "Danse Russe"

If I when my wife is sleeping
 and the baby and Kathleen
are sleeping
and the sun is a flame-white disc
in silken mists
above shining trees,--
if I in my north room
dance naked, grotesquely
before my mirror
waving my shirt round my head
and singing softly to myself:
"I am lonely, lonely.
I was born to be lonely,
I am best so!"
If I admire my arms, my face,
my shoulders, flanks, buttocks
again the yellow drawn shades,--

Who shall say I am not
the happy genius of my household?

This makes me happy in some way, but I don't know why.  I will not question it.

Does anyone have a link to the thread where everyone made up positive, corporate vocabulary for awful things? I saw the thread awhile ago and had some funny thoughts. Now I can't find it.
