I have to look at the performance schedule to see how late things are going on which nights...

Well surprise surprise surprise!

Find something interesting and rigorously check it out and discover that there's actually no "there" there. 

The headline, of course, takes it a bit far. The study appears to have rigorously demonstrated that the quantity of gluten in the "gluten sensitive" participants' diet had no connection to their claims of intestinal distress. None. 

That's not the same as proving that "gluten sensitivity" does not exist, but is strong evidence for that claim.

Admittedly, if Business Insider told me the sky was blue, I'd get out an umbrella. But either way, food reaction diagnosis has been an arcane art for as long as it's been around, as far as I can tell.

This is full of interesting conversations among pre-schoolers. And of how they can be used as teachable moments instead of stifling civil conversation.
A teacher writes: "One day, Rory approached me during playtime, visibly shaken. 'Those kids are telling me that girls can’t marry girls and they can!' 'Well, let’s go and talk with them about it,” I responded."

So I've got the All-star game on, and it's time for the National Anthem. I've already forgotten the name of the singer -- no need to remind me, either.

I have a mute button, and I'm not afraid to use it. I used it.

Oh, say can you <breath> see
By the dawn's early <breath> light…

Then the dirgelike tempo and soulifying on top of this. One can only endure so much butchery of a fricking drinking song!

Give me Bob McDonald or Caleb Green any day! Go Caps!

Artistic interpretation is all very nice, but stop turning a sing-along into a performance!

Sometime in the second week of Pennsic, I noticed that one of my medieval shoes had blown a sole seam. Boogers.

Wait! I know where my needles are, and I know how to use them!

Whip off the shoe, turn it inside out, and have at it.

Fifteen minutes later, I'm putting the shoe back on.

After Pennsic, I took inventory of my Dru shoe closet and noted that two of the three other pairs also needed seams redone. One was really badly blown (and blew out even more in the turning). An hour and a half later, I now have four wearable pairs of Dru turnshoes. Manila, here I come! Well, at least more shoes to wear.

It was also interesting getting reacclimated to wearing regular shoes after two weeks of being barefoot or wearing very light weight flat shoes. Can you say "ankle weights"?

Go me!

Barefoot often works well for me, even at Pennsic, but I will need shoes at some point.  I hate shoes.

Thinking of you, +Jennifer Tifft
But it is a really cool video to watch. From a distance.

A great story - I only hope I have the wit and spine to do something similar if I ever see the same:

Really. I think Krugman nails it.

Trump is a useful tool, and I used that word with great intent, for getting the message out to the base without the real candidates being saddled with it in the general election.
