This meme will offend someone 21 comments

I think people are allowed to be offended. They're allowed to be hurt and angry at the actions of others. It just depends on what they turn around and do with those feelings that determines whether or not they're a giant d-wad.

I love Billie! She's such a smart girl, and she's learned to express herself so much more over the past several months. The "mad" video is still my favorite.

Yeah! Though better for your lungs, to be sure. And snow melts, eventually

Lol, both are good, as long as the ice isn't directly on the skin. I made some homemade ice packs last night. 1 part rubbing alcohol and 3 parts water. Makes it so it doesn't freeze solid so it's more malleable.

My sunburn from kayaking yesterday would appreciate it! I don't have an icemaker in my freezer, lol. I stuck my aloe vera in the fridge.

Correct. I can't sleep because my freaking neighbors can't go 10 minutes without running up and down their stairs like elephants. It does not help that I got sunburned while kayaking yesterday. It's now 2:30 am.

Whose safety? 15 comments

Yet total freedom leads to anarchy, which isn't safe for anyone.
So the correct answer is no. I have a right to safety, and so do others. Nobody has the freedom to enter my home uninvited. Nobody has the freedom to mow down pedestrians by driving on the sidewalk.
Freedom comes with rules and regulations in order to keep things balanced and people safe.

I imagine the utility companies are going to get a lot of lawsuits over this. They were told to take precautions years ago and chose not to. I'll be interested in seeing how this all plays out.

I would watch that.
Though I'd rather see his cut on The Hobbit, without the dumb love triangle plot that the studio made him add.

Oh! Ha! Just the way you responded to the post made me wonder.
Still envy black women's hair skills, tho. They can pull off anything and make it look great

Haha, I've always admired the hairstyles black women are able to pull off! I can rarely get my hair to do anything other than a ponytail, let alone manage hair with that much body.
I probably wouldn't touch it even if you offered, lol. I have such a large personal space bubble that I'm hyper aware of other people's bubbles.

Did you get hit with power outages and water pipe breaks where you're at? I handle utility bills for people, so I know a lot of people are getting slammed with high bills due to flex rates... I hope you were able to keep warm!

I would never touch, or even ask, but I've always been curious. Granted, I'm one of those that has to touch the soft blankets when I pass them in the store...
I think it's more a desire to experience the texture, because it's unfamiliar.
It baffles me that people think it's even okay to ask that, though. You don't just ask to touch people's bodies. That's weird.

I believe in both because they're not mutually exclusive. It's not difficult, really. And yes, you really do have to take science with a grain of salt because we're still learning and making discoveries. What was true yesterday is not true today, and what's true today could be disproved tomorrow. Look how medicine has changed over the last few centuries. Even just 70 years ago, cigarettes were marketed as being healthy, now we know they're not.
People claim the Big Bang just HAPPENED. Because statistics. It's statistically possible, sure, but not probable. By that very logic, somewhere in the world, somebody's dryer should have resulted in a perfectly folded load of laundry. Again, not likely
Please don't call me deluded. It's quite impolite. I'm a person of logic and introspection. I like to puzzle and reason things out, study things to determine how they work, and analyze people's actions. Despite what you might think, I don't ascribe to religion blindly.

Dendro = wood
Chronology = time
Basically, I counted and measured tree rings to look for events like droughts and wet years, and to see how those affected growth on various tree species (or the lab did). I mostly worked with juniper, and some firs. Juniper trees grow weird.

Spent nearly a year working in a dendrochronology lab. It was simultaneously boring and interesting.

Following this, dog breeds are all the same species. Selective breeding is what makes the breeds different, but breed doesn't equal species. All breeds can reproduce with each other, at least, they can produce viable offspring. Humans have screwed up some breeds so much that they have to be artificially inseminated, so go us, I guess?
Any species within the same taxonomical genus are able to reproduce with each other, such as dogs and wolves, since they are both in the Canus genus. They are even the same species Lupus, but the domesticated dog is further split by its subspecies familiaris.
All domestic dogs fall into this subspecies. Breeds are not taxonomically different.
Taxonomy is a weird creature. I mean, manatees are related to the elephant shrew, for goodness sake.

I believe modern man was created by God. I also believe in evolution and science. I have a degree in natural resources. Evolution happens via beneficial mutations (or selective breeding when humans are involved) that allow an organism to better survive in its habitat and subsequently pass on those genes to its offspring. It can happen as rapidly as a few generations (color morphism is a good example of this, like the squirrels at the Grand Canyon and the moths near London (?) at the start of the Industrial Revolution), or over thousands of years.
As someone who has taken classes involving taxonomy, it is nowhere near perfect and is constantly being rewritten. That's how science works, and it should be taken with a grain of salt.
I believe the Big Bang was an event orchestrated by a Supreme Deity, because it makes no logical sense to me that everything just "happened" to fall into place. The earth is far too complicated for something like that.
