Suggestions for one in ten? I'm asking for suggestions for things that are 'one in ten.' The two that immediately come to mind are, of course, the theoretical statistic for LGBTQ people and Eagle Scouts, but surely there must be others!

This is for a geocache I'm hiding. The idea is that there will be one container with the actual cache and nine others in the immediate area with some sort of note stating "This is not the cache! Keep looking ..." The actual cache's initial trade items will be based on the 1-in-10 theme: right now, rainbow and eagle items.

+Angelo Bautista I like it ... I'll have to consider what kind of small swag I can put in to represent that. Hmm. Thank you!

This may not make a lot of sense if you don't geocache. Please bear with me.

I do appreciate the people that put out caches, really I do. If they didn't put out caches, I wouldn't have any to find, right? Still, there are times when I want to beat some of them with sticks. Such as when I find myself going in circles in waste high brush cursing them for hiding a fucking micro in a location you could easy hide a five gallon bucket! Seriously, it's a waste of a great spot. Oh and no clue in your cache listing? Oh, that's even better. This is supposed to be a 1.5 hide?

I had just found a 3 - a very well camouflaged 3, in about a third of the time. It was beautifully disguised and actually made me laugh out loud when I found it. Yours? As it turns out, yours is another Gods damned tape-wrapped pill bottle. It's hard to find because it's small, no other reason at all. No clever container, so trick to the hiding space, just small object in a large, wooded area. Bah!

Seriously, this was the worst hide I've seen in weeks and if they were all like this, I'd have given up a long, long time ago. You can do better than this with pretty much any effort at all.

Have an equally NSFW companion description for partners with different plumbing than this one. (This is all text, but if you click into the rest of this Tumblr, it's REALLY NSFW, trust me.) http://ball-deep.tumblr.com/post/87074909667/crucial-question-definitely-important-how-do-you

I don't think I'll be inviting one of our yard squirrels into the house anytime soon (although that would certainly liven up the cats!), but I do think this is one of the cutest things I've seen all week. I particularly enjoy how he cuddles up for scritches.

Especially for +Melissa DePlanche , but wonderfully cute for everyone else too, I hope!
Talented Dutch nature photographer Roeselien Raimond has countless stunning photos of beautiful creatures and wildlife, but her photos of wild foxes are especially wonderful. She agreed to give Bored Panda an interview and talk about her work photographing these cunning and beautiful creatures.

About damned time.

Again, I'd like to state that if anyone needs an officiant for this (and needs one in a hurry), then I am ordained and I'd love to help.
With U.S. District Judge Barbara Crabb expected to rule soon on the constitutionality of Wisconsin's same-sex marriage ban, Dane County Clerk Scott McDonell is leaving nothing to chance. If Crabb overturns the prohibition, McDonell expects a rush of same-sex couples seeking marriage licenses at the clerk's office.

University Wisconsin Parkside - Umbrella Art Display. No, I don't think that's the official name, but it does decorate one of our common areas. My sweetie Fran asked me to take a few pictures for her and I decided to share publicly while I was doing so.

I just quoted Jayne Cobb in a paper for school. This makes me happy.

Wow. Can I add a few thousand pluses on this one? Seriously, this made me a bit tingly.

Coffee Fueled Dissent
Introduction
After you've been online for a while, you've filled out a lot of profiles. I've been online since 1991. No, that's not a typo. I've been online longer than some of my classmates have been alive! No wonder I'm so cranky some days.

Anyway, as I say in other profiles ...

I'm just a garden variety bi, poly, Pagan / agnostic, geek. Physically I'm fandom type Male #3 - bearded guy with long hair and glasses.

I'm a freelance computer programmer with a heavy background in databases. Lately, I've been doing a lot more Web-based interfaces and all the cool stuff you can do with HTML5, jQuery, and CSS3. For my 40th birthday, I returned to school to finally get my IT degree, majoring in Software Development. I'm increasingly glad I did, even if it is a lot of work!

One of the joys of programming and IT work is that there's always something new. Sometimes it feels overwhelming -- I'll never know everything! Most of the time, it satisfies a much larger priority in my Maslow's hierarchy: I learned something new today (and applied it in a useful manner.)

Yeah, I'll take that!

Woof!
