“And I reply, ‘you know what I’m going to tell my grandkids? I’m going to tell them that we paired service dogs with children in need, off the back of a f***ing joke.’

Now here's a cryptocurrency philosophy that I could support.
 
Dogecoin and Social Good
The founder of dogecoin is everything bitcoin is not. He is inviting government regulation, is more concerned with charitable efforts than being rich, and firmly believes in the importance of an inclusive community. Essentially he comes off as a liberal who sees the potential use of cryptocurrency as a force in social good. It may be something that started as a joke coin, but there is something underneath the creators of dogecoin which is purely idealistic, and kind of punk rock.

Speaking of idealism, if you list your wallets in the comments, I will tip you. If you don't have a wallet, get one at dogecoin.com or dogevault.com for an online wallet.

"I take issue with how he reduced my daughter to a “distressed baby” who cost the company too much money. How he blamed the saving of her life for his decision to scale back employee benefits. How he exposed the most searing experience of our lives, one that my husband and I still struggle to discuss with anyone but each other, for no other purpose than an absurd justification for corporate cost-cutting."

Like I said the other day, obviously suffering from Distressed CEO Syndrome that is frequently associated with Affluenza.

"If ever there was a testimony to the importance big data has achieved in business it’s this: We will now shape our physical world to create better streams of digital information."

And suddenly, I'm even more interested in Disney infrastructure.

It seems you cannot stop progress, including digital technology and Disney's beloved attractions and characters.

" They say that when the costs–the time and effort–associated with being a member of a social network outweigh the benefits, then the conditions are ripe for a general exodus. The thinking is that if one person leaves, then his or her friends become more likely to leave as well and this can cascade through the network causing a collapse in membership."

Wonder how much it matters whether the key friends move to another platform or retire generally.

"If a little girl is running around on the baseball team with her mitt, people think, 'That's a strong girl,'" said her husband, Matt Duron, who, like his wife, uses a pen name to shield the boy's identity. "When my 6-year-old is running around in a dress, people think there's something wrong with him." [...] 

"Why? "Masculinity is valued more than femininity," University of Utah law professor Clifford Rosky said. "So there's less worry about girls than about boys."

I hate this attitude so much. Our society is so afraid of femininity and feminine activities that it makes life hell for little boys (and grown up boys!) who are interested in activities that are deemed too "girly". 

This is why I'm a feminist. Not just to improve the lives of women, but to improve the lives of everyone. A world where women are equal to men in every way is a world in which a man doesn't have to fear looking like "less of a man".

Men are stuck in gender roles, and it's absurd. I can't help but giggle when I look at all the guys spending huge amounts of time and energy to get "buff" - before or after they go to their desk job, in their luxury SUV with power everything.

A Tumblr of things that cost more than space exploration (more than the total US budget for space exploration, or more than specific well-known missions, and so on). Lovely to have at your fingertips when arguing with someone who thinks we spend too much on space.

How can you help do science? It's easy! If you see a bumblebee, take a picture.
 
Bee a citizen scientist! Take a photo of a bumblebee and help collect data to protect this important part of the ecosystem.

Story
Tagline
I'm a museum girl, educator, science geek and costumer. Sometimes all at once.
Introduction
I specialize in Informal Science and Environmental Education, focusing on finding ways to teach big concepts in little ways. I'm never happier than when I'm in a creek lecturing someone about fossils or catching crayfish.

I also suffer from a tendency to dabble in the humanities, but never in public, and I always wash my hands afterwards.

You can find me on Twitter as Seelix, or at my blog This View of Life
