A link between a soldier's sense of morality and PTSD.

I know, +Melanie McRae - and it is a good program as such. But, the US and military should be ashamed about how they treat some (wounded) veterans - it seems that if you get wounded, you become useless and are just discarded. I realise, some vets are treated wonderfully, yet even Walter reed hospital is lacking funds. And the stories about vets having to fight for years for compensation and support are common. Also, it has been improved since Vietnam, but still, the discrepancies remain once you get wounded.
In general, I think a soldier should make up his mind about deployment - Iraq was a lie from day 1 so what's left is resigning. Keeping up your personal morals, values and standards.

Apparently, if you have a loftier vision of your provenance than your plebeian blue-collar grandaddys would suggest, you can take tests telling you if you're descended from Vikings or royals or whatever. They won't mean anything, but won't your real ancestors be proud that you have 500 bucks to throw around?

+flavius usca I'm deleting your comment until you come up with something to say to Debra.

+Joseph Penaloza There are, but those are different. There's also a test that tells you if you're part-Neanderthal (more likely if you're of European descent). The tests referenced in the article are supposed to tell you if you're related to a specific dead person, like Richard III.

Posting mainly so that I remember to come back to it later. A curated list of 100 songs from 100 artists. Some I love already--Metz, DIIV, the aptly named The Very Best--and some I haven't been able to get into (looking at you, Big K.R.I.T.). Some I haven't even heard yet (or heard of even. Parquet Courts?). Looking forward to going through this.

I feel the need to tag music nerds +Anne Tipton , +Bobbi Jo Woods , and +Paul Owen on this.

I have been looking for Fred Armisen's doc, from like 1998 or 9, in which he interviewed tons of bands. I'm not even sure if it was ever released or just shown on TV one time.

I filled out my application at the kiosk in the Vatican lobby, so fingers crossed.

Melanie,

I went to work this morning and when I left, found out there's a new Papa. I'm sure you would have had a direct line to Jesus.

Instead of being annoyed at the multiple tags last week, this is the answer I should have given: the pressure of the water in the Floridan Aquifer equalizes the porous limestone that lies beneath the state. When the water level of the aquifer recedes due to drought and overpumping, sinkholes result.

Melanie,

Thanks for the answer and the fact you use the correct contraction of you are. :-)

Wow.

I have to tell you, if you find a woman who has been running for 26 miles so sexy that you can't control yourself, you might be a sex addict and should probably get help. We need to airlift Tiger Woods' doctor over there stat.

Then let the boys leave too, but the goats are on their own.  At least they could not breed with them.  Or if they did... well fauns are cool.

*My statement is not racist as it is based on not wanting this special level of stupidity to spread, not based on race.

The barbecue is better at Charlie and Jake's, but they were absolutely lovely to my grandmother, who is a pretty needy customer. I recommend skipping the pulled pork et al and going for the salad bar.
