It's hard to look at the headlines when you're facepalming. But I see my Facebook feed alight with various opinions on the election, all of which are wrong – so rather than screaming OH, FOR FUCK'S SAKE at all of you individually, let me pull you into the corner and have a brief but ...

Um... the person who wrote that article doesn't understand the double negative. "No non-medical, non-religious dietary restrictions" = medical, religious dietary restrictions are ok.

The article writer misunderstands: Hard to argue with that. The only problem I see is that the owners specified that people can’t have medical or religious restrictions. Had they just said “you have to be able to handle the products,” maybe the critics would go away.

But the owners are saying medical and religious dietary restrictions are ok.

[giggle] Shared for Steven Flaeck's intro. :-)
 
When I saw this photograph, it looked like he'd been put on some sort of space age serving platter. I'm not saying that Chris Hadfield has been turned into alien brunchmeat. I am saying, and I think I speak for the world here, that our thoughts and prayers go out to Hadfield's family as they cope with this tragedy.

I'm also saying that Trump told us this would happen. There's no way these aliens had visas and, you know, he's right: they're not sending their best people. They're probulons; they're cattle mutilators; they're just not the best people.

I mean, if you can even call them people. I'm not saying hyper-evolved sea anemones aren't people. They're just not my kind of people. No sir. I like my people to have faces, have well developed eyes, and provide no shelter for clown fish. Unless there're two anemones kinda... you know, getting a little busy, waving erotically in the current. Maybe get a little sea urchin in there, just sort of rolling in while the anemones ripple coyly. Really, I think that's getting pretty good. It's unnatural, but admit it: they're more advanced than us.

Hyper. Evolved. We should be questioning our ways, not theirs.

What I'm saying is that this is a terrible tragedy. Astronaut Chris Hadfield has been reduced to a prop in some kind of seafood-themed alien pornograph and, I think I speak for the nation, no, the world, when I say that our thoughts and prayers go out to his family in this trying, terrifying, disturbingly sexy time.
Chris Hadfield recently talked to Cracked about a few of the things he learned during two space shuttle missions and five months aboard the International Space Station.

I was talking to a female friend of mine and mentioned that I loved that the bathrooms around here were transfriendly (i.e. single occupancy, gender doesn't matter). I also said that I hated that I had to wait in slow long lines now.

My friend replied, "So how's your male privilege?"

My public posting mostly falls under the category of "Links to News Jennifer Finds Interesting".  Lately, my interest has gravitated to the US dysfunctional political system, theories of economics, and the state and future of US healthcare, with occasional lapses into educational reform, new scientific discoveries, jokes about grammar and spelling, and atheism vs. religions.
