Sex appeal.

She's hawt, too.
 
Another fun day of shooting in the desert yesterday-I'm so thrilled I've had so much opportunity this week to learn & hone my skills. Thank you to @gun_collector (follow him on Instagram & Twitter) of Progressive F.O.R.C.E. Concepts for working with me & taking this beautiful shot of me with your AR-15! I had an awesome time yesterday with you, my girl, Myra Fukuno & the bad ass Rose Muraoka!

Want to write, but sometimes need motivation? I'm thinking about doing a thing where you get a text from me every day that kicks you in the butt to write something.  

It's called Do the Words. 

(I wrote a blog post a few years ago about Doing the Words, if you want to learn more about the idea: https://shannagermain2.wordpress.com/2013/01/22/do-the-words-on-writing-productivity/

Here's how it would work: 

You just text the message @dothewords to 81010

It signs you up (it doesn't share your phone number with me or anything). 

Every day you'll get a writing punch in the nose. Virtual, of course. It could be anything from a short writing assignment to a motivating quote to a beautifully written sentence.  

You can stop getting inspiration any time. 

(I also need to give credit here to Kelly-Sue DeConnick, who gave me the idea with her fantastic Bitches Get Shit Done text program. I highly recommend signing up for that if you want a general motivational kick!) 

What do you think? If I get some takers, I'll start it tomorrow morning! 

#DoTheWords
A few months ago, while writing at the coffee shop, I tweeted this: People at next table spent 2 hrs kvetching about writer's block. In that time, I wrote 827 words, edited 2 stories. Shut up. Do t...

These are from a book called Disorder in the Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and  published by court reporters that had the torment of staying calm while the exchanges were taking place.

WITNESS: He said, 'Where am I, Cathy?'
ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
WITNESS: My name is Susan!
_____________________________

ATTORNEY: How long has he lived with you?
WITNESS: Forty-five years.
_______________________________
ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
WITNESS: Yes.
ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
WITNESS: I forget..
ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?
_________________________________________
ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the next morning?
WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?
__________________________________

ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?
WITNESS: He's 20, much like your IQ.
_________________________________________
ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?

ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?
WITNESS: Unless the Circus was in town I'm going with male.
___________________________________
ATTORNEY: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.
____________________________________
ATTORNEY: Doctor , how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
WITNESS: All of them. The live ones put up too much of a fight.
_______________________________________
ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
WITNESS: Oral...
_______________________________________
ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 PM
ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
WITNESS: If not, he was by the time I finished.
__________________________________________
ATTORNEY: Are you qualified to give a urine sample?
WITNESS: Are you qualified to ask that question?

____________________________________
And last:

ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
WITNESS: No..
ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
WITNESS: No.
ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law?

#1 - I think it's hilarious when men think that just because a woman is dressed a certain way she is asking for it. That's not so, and in this day and age, I think it's embarrassing and downright awful to hear someone still thinks that. I'm also not a "feminazi" ( as Dede put it), but I also think people should be treated with respect, regardless of what they're wearing. 

#2 - I don't get any attention, much less feeling like I'm "harassed" on the street, so I can only imagine what it would feel like. I'd like to think most would prefer to be left alone vs constant verbal comments, excepting a smile and/or a "Hello, nice day we're having," type of greeting.  I don't envy the women who have to deal with it, but I don't think they ASK for it.. As for me? I am not a typical "pretty woman" and I do not get come-ons or even looks in public - I dress pretty plainly and am not a slim or tall person. I don't know if it's because of the way I carry myself or what...I've been told I'm intimidating, and I know I'm not a bubbly type until you get to know me. At worst, I sometimes get: "You should smile, lady!", and "Don't be sad!" because I my natural resting expression looks like a frown, but I'm not unhappy. Do I like this kind of attention? No. Do I feel like the women who get it are valid in their complaints? Yes, mostly.  But I will say that this argument is dumb and tiresome and at the end of the day, I think people of any sex don't mind a "hello" "good morning" etc. but the rest is pushing it.

#3 - I feel like this post was kind of annoying in the way that you decided to prod Dede and Kate - but I don't know you apart from seeing you comment on their posts (and I don't really pay much attention to what you say because it's never very memorable), so perhaps I'm wrong here, but I will tell you that for me, personally? I cannot stand when men tag me into posts in this manner, I feel like they're just looking for attention...which is a really fucking annoying thing that I find men doing on here sometimes, and I ignore it. And it seems that since you didn't get the response you wanted from Dede and Kate - you're annoyed by +Ambra Vanderpool and +Irreverent Monk (and now, me, probably) hanging around making possibly valid points, and it smells as if you wanted only +Dede King and +Kate Savage to respond. I'm actually kind of surprised that someone as classy as Dede even offered you a reply.

That is my 2¢ in plain English, because I don't use a lot of fancy words.

Don't let Them keep you from reading this!
 
The data also indicated that conspiracists were largely unwilling to apply the “conspiracy theory” label to their own beliefs. They realized that label carries a negative social stigma and there is no need to plaster on these labels when trying to decode the truth. The most important part of this study found that the conventionalist arguments tended to be much more hostile. This is apparent all over the internet, people who are trying to spread truth and awareness usually aren’t mean about it: http://humansarefree.com/2014/11/scientific-study-conspiracy-theorists.html
I was so happy to finally see a study done on the psychology of conspiracy beliefs.  It goes through...

Scientists have developed a technique that could take the mounting carbon dioxide in our atmosphere and transforms it into carbon nanofibers, resulting in raw materials for use in anything from sports gear to commercial airliners.
