Food for thought.

Although I'm not sorry for having a child, being a mom was never my dream, and I absolutely understand where these women are coming from.  If someone tells you they don't want children, believe them and support them in their choice!
 
So this is what happens when you put a straight jacket on a role.

Very interesting reading. I will say that many of these things are why I put off having children -- and then was not particularly upset when I didn't anyway. OTOH, my sister actively sought out and had two & seems happy with it.

We're not all the same, and yet this particular expectation is narrowly and strongly expected of us all.
It's unthinkable, and it's definitely unspeakable, but women all over the world are coming forward to say it: I regret having my children.

Well, speaking from the other side of the fence I wanted to have kids and everyone was telling me I'd make a good dad. Now I feel relived that I didn't rush into that decision when I was younger.

Ouch. The letter, if not the spirit, of the law, to be sure.

What Kee Hinckley said.
If you're so terrified of the world that you'd condemn others to poverty, war, and death rather than take any risks. By all means, go lock yourself in your house with your guns. I'll be out on the street greeting our new neighbors.

What Eli Bosnick said.
"Because your REAL question...the one you hid behind a shitty little inaccurate, insensitive, dehumanizing racist little candy metaphor is, IS MY LIFE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF MEN, WOMEN, AND TERRIFIED CHILDREN...

... and what kind of monster would think the answer to that question... is yes?"

The real Skittles question is "Is my life more important than that of thousands of refugees?"

Notable changes:
•The poor squids shouldn’t spawn in lava anymore. At least I would not enjoy spawning in lava
•We have a new gamerule: maxEntityCramming
•Mooshrooms now really appreciates to walk on mycelium. Probably it feels soft and cosy on their hooves

Notes to Self:
1) Stop planning snazzy lava-based squid farm.  Reconsider some version of the Squid Mother [https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnL8bFPnztA].
2) Start researching how to update mob farms most effectively.
3) Start planning separate pastures for mooshrooms.
It's snapshot time again! This snapshot gives you a lot of bug fixes and also a new gamerule! If you are longing for new features - don't worry, since MINECON is very close now! And during MINECON we will give you info about several new exciting 1.11 features! And this snapshot includes…

cubfan135 explains the maxEntityCramming issue well here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Lt1ObTNeHc
So it looks like we'll need to have some discussion on where to set it when we get to the point of upgrading our server to 1.11, but as long as it's possible to adjust or turn off, and as long as we can still have the boat-based elytra launchers, it's all good.

I am very amused to have seen this right after another of my G+eople had mentioned burning a pot of food! ;D
 
I mean we've all had more-or-less this day.
Archaeologists in Denmark have found evidence of a 3,000 year-old cooking mistake that casts some light into the everyday life of Scandinavian Bronze Age people. Clear evidence for one of the most common mistakes in the kitchen – burning food -- lay in a clay pot that was excavated in central Ju...

The temptation for teachers, librarians, and people who write serious essays from a literary perspective  is to make a line between “serious” and “frivolous” reading, and try to argue that everyone should read these books, by these writers, instead of wandering around finding books that speak to them.  (Something good librarians can help with, I hasten to add.)   C. S. Lewis, back in the early 20th century, dealt with that brilliantly in one of his essays on reading.   Readers come into any book like a traveler into a new town.  For some, it will be the perfect place to observe and learn–for others, it won’t be.  No one book is necessary; no one book is useless…because readers are different.   The easiest way to drive children away from books is to load them down with books they don’t enjoy and insist they get “the hidden message” out of them.
The morning's foray onto Twitter included a tweet by Penguin-Random linking to this article, http://www.signature-reads.com/2016/09/this-is-how-literary-fiction-teaches-us-to-be-human/, about how reading fiction increases readers' understanding of other people. Although I agree that reading ...

Interesting!  I've never heard of these before.  Sadly, "trendy" means that they'll probably be expensive when and if I ever see any.

Adding new meaning to "Glockenspiel"!  The music would have been better if it had been recorded farther away from the pistols.  But if it had been recorded farther away from the pistols, it would have been much harder to observe and appreciate the sharpshooter's skill.
 
OK, so a Glock is a percussion instrument ... in the hands of an expert.

+Lisa Fogelman That solution is fine for musicians, but rather sucks for the shooters who want to hear the pistols.
