In other news...  this hits me right in my 90s!!

As I told J, "This was me.  Dressed like a Goth; raved like an 8-year-old."

Ugh, this hits me right in my degree.

http://www.slate.com/articles/technology/future_tense/2015/03/satellite_images_show_isis_other_groups_destroying_archaeological_sites.single.html

Those who don't study history are doomed to repeat it - I feel like that should be the motto of more universities.  :P
The well-publicized destruction of archaeological sites and museum exhibits by ISIS has garnered worldwide condemnation. Sites like Nineveh, Hatra, and Mosul have been the subject of concerted efforts to destroy the past—and to help goad the United States into a third ground war in northern Iraq and Syria. Recently, we...

Thanks to +Julia M Usher and 3 days of obsessive YouTube-watching, my cookies have gained +2 Awesomeness.  ;)  I haven't maxed my skill, though - still having trouble with consistency, but practice makes perfect!

(The leaf came out really well, I was proud.)

Lucinda- I had the same idea of doing batch cooking, but weekly and having shared meal plus take-home containers so people only have to make one dish, but a lot of it. Everyone gets variety, nobody has to cook five different things. I might try to get it going. Will keep folks posted on how it turns out. Hopefully I can find a group of people not with allergies, paleo, other things. I like dairy, nuts, and pasta LOL

I want to kidnap her, sedate her, tattoo [CITATION NEEDED] on her forehead in blue ink, then release her back into the wild.

Vani Hari, AKA the Food Babe, has amassed a loyal following in her Food Babe Army. The recent subject of profiles and interviews in the New York Times, the New York Post and New York Magazine, Hari implores her soldiers to petition food companies to change their formulas. She's also written a bestselling book telling you that you can change your life in 21 days by "breaking free of the hidden toxins in your life." She and her army are out to chan...

Nothing like getting called out for your own unconscious gender bias while discussing the need for greater inclusivity of women and girls in tech.  On Monday, Google Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt and acclaimed Steve Jobs biographer Walter Isaacson were wrapping up a SXSW Interactive panel that had focused on diversity, when an audience member ...

In December 2014, Saks Fifth Avenue responded to a sex discrimination lawsuit filed by Leyth O. Jamal, a former employee at a Saks store in Texas who claims she was harassed, then fired, for being a trans woman. Saks could have fought Jamal’s suit by insisting that her claims of...

Oh man. Playing WoW again, and the guild did some old-world raids for kicks last night. And by "the guild" I mean "the 4 of us who were on." Finally beat Arthas, tee hee. Dendara's giving us detailed "here is where to run when [x] happens," and then we simply waste the bosses in like 10 seconds.  ^_^

Got me reminiscing, though. They have Molten Core back up to a lvl 100 40-man raid for the 10th anniversary, and there's 3-hour queues, and people getting kicked for poor gear and zero knowledge.. good times. Them kids today have no idea what raiding was like Back In The Day™, when you had to coordinate with 39 other people. 25-man raids?  Please.

With that in mind, this will never stop being hilarious:

Yeah, I may be toting this along to OmegaCon, although with everything else on the menu, I may let someone else do the actual cooking. As official NomSweet diva, I'll wave my hand and have a minion do the dirty work.

We did, twice now.  No luck.  ;)  Can't imagine why, it's like the odds are astronomical or something!
