So, I learned that "fat washing" of spirits is a thing.

I thought this may have been a fringe evangelical thing.  I'm actually less disgusted by the truth than what my mind had already conjured.

Oh man, so very much this. This is especially true if you work in a support position, try a couple of standard things that you know won't work but somehow do.

I am really tolerant. I'm ok with people spreading videos of animal cruelty, terrorist beheadings, and even politicians speaking but this kind of crap needs to stop. We need internet censorship now.
Stop spreading these horrific pictures.
 
There's something in my eye....

Yep. Their Vanilla Bean is divine, and I'm kind of a sucker for the weird seasonal flavors.

Appeal to help someone that's making a difference
Hey there. Most of you know I worked in a pretty rough school as a teacher in the past. Well, a friend of mine still works there and is fighting the good fight. He's got an amazing student group that needs helps. AMPED takes kids, gives them a positive role model, and allows the middle schoolers a safe place to talk and learn about life.

Most of the students have never been outside of Houston and absolutely have never been to a college campus or probably met a college graduate outside of their teachers.

They are trying to organize a campus tour to expose these kids to what a college is like. But, it's expensive and they need money. These are the kinds of kids that struggle to buy food and clothes so a self funded trip to see a college will never happen. So I ask you, please help, it would mean a lot to me. Either a donation or a reshare. I would appreciate it.
Thanks.
AMPED (Aspiring Minds…Past Everyday Dilemmas) is an organization geared toward encouraging and inspiring young people to realize and come into the strength they have within themselves to achieve great fetes within their schools, homes, communities, etc. – despite the environment from which they c...

#rant I freely admit, I had a problem when Wait Wait Don't Tell Me put this person on. I really truly love the show and what attracts me is the high level of intellectual humor and intelligence that is celebrated.

However, I felt that putting her on the show was like The People Of Wal-Mart where you can sit back and make fun of the rednecks. However, in this case, it was sitting back and making fun of someone who lacks a great deal of intellectual fortitude.

I get why they did it, and I am far from a "monk" as the article describes. However, I really do feel like they had her on as a freak/sideshow act where they could show how superior they are by making fun of the less mentally enabled.

On Saturday, Slate’s Mike Pesca guest-hosted NPR’s Wait Wait ... Don’t Tell Me!, where he interviewed Kim Kardashian about baby names, among other innocuous topics. But some listeners were not amused. On Thursday’s The Gist, Pesca responded to the outrage, which he views as its own brand of snobbery. The...

Roleplaying for Kids:
So, I've been "volunteered" with running an RPG for a group of 5 preteen girls and their parents. We're trying to teach the kids lessons on working together and humility.
Anyone know of a good setting/system that lends itself to pre-teen role playing? I'm not horribly worried about the rules since I tend to just make them up as I go to further the narrative along. Still, I'd like to have something they can hold and read to learn the game.
I was thinking about a Wind in the Willowsish setting since they are all kinda animal obsessed. Anyone know a system like that off the top of their heads?

Holy crap this is huge.  Hopefully they can advance WooCommerce and make it much more seamless than it currently is.

So, if you have WordPress, even if it's full custom and not a theme with plugins, you have a vulnerability, and a good one at that. I don't allow comments on most of the sites I manage but still, the vulnerability is there. Zero days suck but they are a reality.
Update it now.
WordPress 4.2 Stored XSS. April 26, 2015. Overview. Current versions of WordPress are vulnerable to a stored XSS. An unauthenticated attacker can inject JavaScript in WordPress comments. The script is triggered when the comment is viewed. If triggered by a logged-in administrator, under default ...

"If triggered by a logged-in administrator, under default settings the attacker can leverage the vulnerability to execute arbitrary code on the server via the plugin and theme editors."

A prime reason why I always shut down the ability to edit themes and plugins from the dashboard in every WordPress site that I build.

Love Snowden or hate him, this is one heck of a hack.
The fact it's such a well made statue and fits the memorial is the cherry on top.

Story

You want a toe? I can get you a toe, believe me. There are ways, Dude. You don't wanna know about it, believe me.
Introduction
Actually, you are probably looking for the other Scott Croom....the one that doesn't like tabletop wargames, cooking, role playing, cycling, disc golf, OS/2......even my hobbies are curmudgeonly. So get off my lawn you kids.

I really disc golf and wargames. I also collect stamps. I also love painting miniatures, see pictures above. I am a very big fan of The Army Painter paints, especially with the release of their new line. There is also a nascent blog I do at http://www.yawargame.blogspot.com I am especially interested in DBA, Aeronef, Guntz, FUBAR,  Uncharted Seas, Hind Commander,  Arkham Horror, Fluxx, Atomic Highway, Killer Bunnies, and OSRPGs. 

Former Wall Streeter and engineering teacher that works in social media management.

Occupation
Social media management. No, I'm not like that annoying girl on the Jack in the Box commercials.
Skills
Herding cats. I seem to gravitate towards careers where that is a serious part of the job description.

I attended the WP Code Academy classes and found them incredibly helpful and well worth the cost. I had a passing understanding of WordPress before the classes but now I am confident when going in and working on my own WordPress sites. I learned everything from simple handling of pages to CSS, HTML5, and PHP. Very well worth the time and money.

Friendly and a must stop spot between San Antonio and Houston. Really nice employees, decent food, clean restrooms, a very very well stocked humidor.

Can't speak highly enough about this location. Jason is a great guy that makes me want to come back. I think on the 3rd visit to the store he automatically walked over to the humidor and opened it before I even had a chance to say hello. He knew me and my habits. That is amazing customer service. Though the selection of cigars isn't super varied, the service more than makes up for it.

Got a to go order of the Mexican plate and an side of guac. The guac. Even though I got a small, there was quite a bit. It was full of taste and really consistant. They didn't over lime or lemon it. It could have been a bit more chunky but all in all I was super happy. The crispy taco was the star. The shell was really great tasting. It was surprisingly good for something that people usually don't put much thought into. The ground beef was also nicely spiced, not overly juicy. It was probably my favorite part of the meal. The tamale was also really nice. Even though it was smothered in cheese, it had think masa that was full of a lot of flavor. Speaking of the cheese, it didn't taste like Velveeta like a lot of restaurant's cheese does. Cheese enchilada was equally good. Rice and beans were decent but nothing to brag about. The tortillas were tasty and were grilled, not just something pulled out of a Sysco bag. Overall, I was super happy.

We've got a Security One system at my office and we've never had problems. Any time there have been questions, I just call them. They answered my questions, and there were quite a few, pretty quickly. I like that they're local and my calls are answered by someone in San Antonio. Silly I know but I like doing business locally if possible.

I'm so absolutely happy I made it a point to go to Pearland and see the shop. He's got an entire room dedicated to discs and it is absolutely stacked to the brim with discs. I love that he's got an amazing selection and doesn't just stick with Innova and Discraft. I was looking for a couple Vibrams specifically and he went into his backstock to not only find the exact ones I was looking for, he had a relatively rare pre-procuction disc I bought as well. His prices are right in line with online retailers and big box stores. His selection of bags was really nice. He also stocked multiple baskets and other ephemera like minis. I got the chance to shoot the breeze with the owner Cory and he seemed like a really knowledgeable and nice guy. The store is kind of out of my way but very, very well worth it.

Easily the worst pizza I've ever had. I ordered a deep dish veggie with a wheat crust. Ok, it took 15 minutes more than they originally said to get. That's ok since I was hungry and looking forward to pizza plus stuff happens, no biggie. In the 10 minutes from the time I left the restaurant to home, the crust became incredibly soggy. Dripping wet kind of soggy. It wasn't really oily, just really really wet. So we decided to just eat it with a fork and write off eating any of the crust. The cheese and veggies combination was really bland. I was expecting oh so much more. I don't know if the butt chewing going on in the back had something to do with the food being bad or if it's always like this. The restaurant itself is immaculate, modern, and really nice looking. I wish the food was decent enough to have eaten more than 1 slice before we chucked it out. Really nice selection of beers and wines as well as Mexican Coke. All the alcohol seemed reasonably priced as were soft drinks.
