It's too hot to go out playing Go, so I'm messing around indoors instead. New Shaymin-inspired avatar created at http://www.rinmarugames.com/playgame.php?game_link=pokemon-cosplayer-dress-up-game

And just like that, Aniu became eager for track season to start. ☺️
#ScienceSunday: Polar bears can run as fast as 40 kilometers per hour—but only for short distances. Younger, leaner bears are the best runners. They can cover two kilometers without stopping. Older, larger bears quickly overheat. #Polarbears are natural sprinters and very dangerous over short distances!

Dear Weather,

THIS is what February is supposed to look like in Maryland. My air conditioning should not be running. Please correct the current conditions.

Best wishes,
Someone who was happy two years ago today and is miserable now

"Hey, Mario, get your sh** together! This princess ain't worth the extra lives." I am amused. How did I not know this band before this morning?

This may be the cutest little game of all time. (note: only works on phones and tablets) 

So, today I found myself at a protest with +Amanda Ulevich​. She had a pro-immigrant sign that she waved about while we chanted pro-immigrant chants. Then the gathering dispersed and we went on our way to find some lunch.

About halfway to lunch, we were stopped outside the National Aquarium by a woman in a pussy hat who asked if we'd been at the protest. We started to talk to her.

A few minutes later, a very apologetic Aquarium employ came up to us and said someone had complained about us and that we couldn't have the sign there and could we please leave.

So apparently three people and one sign amounts to something that can't be in a public place?

I was amused rather than annoyed, although I'm not certain who was in the legal right. And was it somehow special that our message was on a piece of poster board? Had I been standing there with a t-shirt proclaiming that we're all immigrants, would I still have been asked to leave?

All I know is that we must have upset someone, or they wouldn't have complained, so we're clearly doing something. And that tells me that making a noticeable mark is easier than I thought.
