From Bill Gates Facebook -
"I’m truly saddened to learn of Steve Jobs’ death. Melinda and I extend our sincere condolences to his family and friends, and to everyone Steve has touched through his work.
Steve and I first met nearly 30 years ago, and have been colleagues, competitors and friends over the course of more than half our lives.
The world rarely sees someone who has had the profound impact Steve has had, the effects of which will be felt for many generations to come.
For those of us lucky enough to get to work with him, it’s been an insanely great honor. I will miss Steve immensely."
A few months back someone had commented on FB that I looked like Captain Kangaroo in a photo. It got me to thinking about Bob Keeshan and how much I enjoyed watching the Captain as a child.
Turns out an unscrupulous producer had stolen the rights to the character out from under Mr. Keeshan in the 1990s and created a horrible version of the show for the Fox Network.
I called a friend who had been involved in children's television and we discovered that this producer had allowed the trademark to lapse.
I've applied for it, at first just to keep it out of the hands of those who had taken it from Bob Keeshan, but have learned that trademarks aren't like cybersquatting on a web domain. You have to actually use it in order to keep a trademark active.
If you want to see what happens when trademarks and domain names are left for the wrong people to snatch up, just google the Captain's old friend Dancing Bear : (
So I've put up a website (captainkangarooshow.com), a daily blog (captainkangarooshow.blogspot.com) and a Facebook page (https://www.facebook.com/pages/The-New-Captain-Kangaroo/191129644265778) where we now have almost 400 fans. Not a lot, but still not bad for a show that doesn't exist yet.
The situation as it stands: We come publish for opposition with the USPTO at the end of August, 30 days later I'll own the trademark to Captain Kangaroo and can begin to pursue television, radio and publishing deals.
We won't own the copyrights, so we need to "re-invent" the Captain, but we'll be able to keep Bob Keeshan's character from being used again by the company that stole it out from under him.
TL/DR: I grew up watching Captain Kangaroo. I am 30 days away from BECOMING Captain Kangaroo!
I believe this picture is circa ~ 1994. He got this trophy in boy scouts, racing some toy car he made. The combo of the tie-dye shirt, flowing mullet and the look of accomplished smugness he has in this pic is priceless.
Edit: I have been corrected, apparently he won the rocket trophy in a separate rocket building competition, and the toy car on his lap is from the Boy Scouts Pinewood Derby. This was a school picture and he was told to bring along his favorite things. This led to the beautiful combination you see here of the trophy + toy car + Tie-dye shirt.
FINAL EDIT: I'm still alive, and he actually found this very funny. My husband thinks it is awesome so many of you enjoyed this photo. With his 15 minutes of internet fame, he wants me to edit this post slightly. Below is a link to a poll for The Home Depot Foundation. Yes it is on facebook, but it doesn't spam your wall or send you a million updates, but it is for a really good cause. the HVAF is a great charity that helps veterans adjust to life post-war. With your vote HVAF will receive 25,000 dollars to help their program, thanks!
Ironically, your action of saving the image and uploading it to imgur is strikingly similar to FunnyJunk's actions. How about linking to the real source?
HA! I know Murderface Sandwich! He is actually a cat. I will ask my friend if he can share Murder's photo. Murder has a FB profile.
EDIT: Murderface's FB Profile
I think agencies require a subpoena to get to your data, but I may be wrong. Regardless, Facebook has legal obligations to fulfill in every country it operates. If you are doing illegal stuff, you'd have to be an idiot to be posting it to facebook anyway.
I'm shocked that people are still shocked that law enforcement operates online.
EDIT: A more energetic person than I looked it up here. Facebook does not disclose private information without a court order. Furthermore, they are legally obligated to store chat logs in many jurisdictions. Complain to your governments, not Facebook.
This is what you do, get the account memorialized.

wow, reddit definitely has the potential to help spread the word.

I don't want to be "that guy", but is there any way to verify that you are indeed Husky? The guy with the HDStarcraft account is NOT HD and he tried to fake an AMAA as well as other negative things under a fake HD account a few months ago. Just wondering!
EDIT: Proof! Thanks, johnbranflake.
Except for that the quotations on his own Facebook page aren't attributed to anyone.
Edit: It appears he's since hidden the quotes and bio section of his profile from public view.
Here's a link to a photo my father took of Waits before he was anything. My dad was out back of the show Tom was opening for, and was smoking a cig. My dad snapped his photo, not knowing what the young guy would become.
I hate to whore myself out but I've never seen myself on Reddit and this is pretty fucking cool to me... So here goes!
I post a lot of dumb jokes like this on my facebook page. Sometimes early Cyanide & Happiness comics too. You can check it out here:
I doubt that's the real facebook page:
This is even better
Says your statuses are being posted via "Facebook Elite Edition" (where it says "via Mobile"...etc.) Not sure if it works anymore...

edit: it still works. Shows a little gold facebook icon too.
EDIT: I woke up and this was comment number 2 on the page so I am going to add this: Here is where you can go to help! I posted it below but, it got buried.
I work with a mentally disabled person and I know how much their things mean to them. I know many who have a hard time grasping relationships but, understand things because they can hold them in their hand. This is truly a cruel crime.
This is a picture of a protest a year ago in front of the ministry of interior building in Cairo. The protest was against the killing of blogger Khaled Said. The Facebook page "We are all Khaled Said" would eventually help start the 25th of January revolution.
First note: Bank Transfer Day has nothing to do with Occupy Wall Street. It even says it right on the event page on Facebook:
> While the Bank Transfer Day movement acknowledges the enthusiasm from Anonymous and Occupy Wall Street, the Bank Transfer Day movement was neither inspired by, derived from nor organized by Anonymous or the Occupy Wall Street movement, and the Bank Transfer Day movement does not endorse any activities conducted by Anonymous or Occupy Wall Street.
Second, it was picked because many banks are open and most people are home, as jlstrange has noted in his comment.
In case anyone missed it, Bank Transfer Day has
to do with Occupy Wall Street.

There's a Facebook group for former Elan school students/victims/inmates. It lists a bunch of Elan school jargon, without any explanation. Some of these have already been explained, but I wonder if you might translate the whole list:
EDIT: A former resident is posting some pretty amazing illustrations based on her memories of attending in the 1970s.
Dec 1974. One evening while we were watching TV, two escapees were brought in with frostbitten feet. They had escaped with no shoes on their feet.
Jan 1975. As a punishment for running away, Lesley was given a general meeting. Then the director got onto the subject of Lesley being a tomboy and hating womanly things. He made her get all dolled up and made everyone laugh at her and ridicule her. Along with loss of privileges, she had to remain in dress.
Sorry for your loss. You can get Facebook to memorialise a profile, which means it still exists, but only for existing friends and shouldn't show up in things like this.
This is what David posted on his FB:
>Cross installed on public land, paid by public money, placed by a priest on consecrated (public) ground in a religious ceremony. What exactly is the Christian Right's next step if this goes unchallenged? Are you foolish enough to think this won't set any kind of precedent?
His response to Jon:
>First off, I'd like to say that I think Jon Stewart is very funny, bright, and talented. I am somewhat honored that he considered having me on his show, and disappointed that he chose to talk about me without having me on. I also think his bit about me was darn funny, and made me laugh. But he was wrong. He gave a one-sided, albeit funny, account of a serious issue facing this serious event. I am not a dick just because I am standing for equal representation. I am not being grumpy because I expressed what many people are thinking about the cross (that the idea that God sat back and watched the event happen, then deemed to give Christians a cross to show his love is a ludicrous position). It is certainly no laughing matter that the press is making us out to be unpatriotic during an act of patriotism. Good comedy, poor journalism. We are reminded that Jon is a comedian, not a news source. That's OK. Perhaps we were taking him too seriously anyway. Hopefully they will actually invite me on to give our side, talk about the importance of SOCAS and government equality, and make a real case to America why the WTC Memorial/Museum should be religion-even, if not religion-free.
It's only fair if they allow equal representation of all religions at the museum. What do you think would happen if the relatives of the Muslims that died during 9/11 wanted the star and crescent represented there?
By the way guys, this was previously posted in /r/pics before IE's face was messed up.
The illustration was done by Moie Preisenberger. Here is her Facebook page although I don't see the browsers illustration there.

People who are denying they are in the 99% aren't refuting the statistics; they're saying something very simple, that apparently you're unable to grasp:
YOU DON'T REPRESENT US. WE DIDN'T ASK YOU TO SPEAK FOR US. WE DON'T WANT TO BE INVOLVED WITH YOU.
Because of statements like the one you make here. You've unilaterally declared that, in effect, if we're not all sipping on daiquiris in caymans, or rearranging furniture in our penthouse apartments, we're just "getting by", or "surviving". Because you've decided on what the bar is for happiness, you've alienated most of the people you claim to represent. In reality, the only people you represent are those who feel they are owed something by their fellow man, whether it's health care, a nice car or something to eat. And that's why, proportionally speaking, these protests don't rise above just a few hundred people camped out in comfortable parks. And while the truly downtrodden starve and die just a few blocks down the road, you're posting about it on reddit and facebook and whatever.
I only accidentally saw this post when I was logging in; thanks for reminding me why I unsubb'ed from r/politics in the first place.
Please keep in mind that virtually all of Canada is looking down at these idiots and we're embarassed by them.
Also, lots of people were out in the streets the following day to help clean things up.
Don't judge an entire country based on the actions of a small group of idiots.
Her Portfolio. This photo is nominated for best engagement photo on Bride.ca if you want to show some love.
It's a photoshopped photograph. It's a stock image the Empire State Building folks re-edit when they want to show the internet what the lights look like on some nights (like when they're lit a certain way for a special occasion.)
Their Facebook page shows this.
Also it was quite foggy in New York tonight from my understanding.

I agree. There is a facebook page created with only 9500 supporters, this needs to be given more attention.
I sent a complaint to the national ACLU, but I'll also send one to the LA ACLU. This is insane. Absolutely insane. Our public school system has completely and utterly failed if not a single one of these students (other than Damon) can understand why this is unconstitutional. You would think that "tyranny of the majority" would have come up during the history of slavery in the United States.
EDIT: I would also urge those of us with Facebooks to comment on the LA ACLU's wall urging them to support Damon.
I don't post often but this guy needs help exposing these cops for what they really are. I'm working on finding a contact email to the chief of police and a phone number.

Hey, I made those! : ) They look great. You should keep a look out for the guys--they'll be available very soon!
My Website and facebook page!
Facebook is NOT filtering Occupy Wall Street posts. I have plenty of groups discussing and dispersing news. Dunno where this rumour came from.
Unless they fix it you can go to https://www.facebook.com/presence/popout.php and see everyone on line again. You have to reload it every few minute though because if someone comes on line, it doesn't show the list updating. It only removes people from the list after they go off line.
Hi, I'm Nick and I work on the photos team at Facebook. There are a two clarifications I want to make about how this feature works:
1. We don't automatically tag anyone, regardless of what this article implies. We do use some face detection/recognition software to suggest tags to the uploader, and the only reason we added it was to make tagging your friends easier and quicker.
2. Only your friends are suggested, this can't be used to identify an arbitrary individual.
Try out the feature yourself next time you upload photos to Facebook, I hope you'll find that it's pretty straightforward and useful. Seriously, there is no master plan here other than to make a really good product that lets people share photos with each other easily. If you have suggestions after using it (or for Facebook photos in general), please let me know: https://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=ui_photos2
In the 7th grade, my foreign language teacher sent me to the office because I got a new pair of glasses, and according to her, "changing my appearance" was "disrespectful." She later quit her job in the middle of the year to become a nun in Russia.
A whole Facebook was created in her memory: https://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=2218523759 (the second post down is from the English teacher whose room was across the hall.)
Um, the general protest is anti-capitalism. Look at the pictures and videos, you see signs like "STOP CAPITALISM" and "Capitalism is organized crime" that advertises a socialist party. The most blatant sign that this protest is more of an anti-capitalism protest then anything is their stated motive- protesting "greed." Trying to stop profit-seeking behavior is like trying to stop gravity. If they really cared about fixing the problem rather than dismantling capitalism like those signs demand, they would be protesting government policy that has changed capitalism to corporatism. Government policy is the only non-common denominator between the two, yet they are protesting the common denominator that exists in both legitimate capitalism and corrupt corporatism. Otherwise they wouldn't be harassing people wearing suits and categorizing police officers as part of the ruling class based on the color of their collar.
It is hard to pin down the message of this protest. However, it's pretty obvious that for the most part it is anti-capitalism. These people want the economy to be organized based on how they envision it, not based on free association.
P.S. I just remembered that one of the three stated goals of Occupy Wall Street on their facebook page before it began was "Abolish Capitalism." So my analysis isn't even necessary to prove their cause is anti-capitalism more than anything,
There's more to it, of course.
Heidi - I hear that the original incident took place at 5 corners - off school property - which makes it incredibly difficult to indict and punish via school channels. The kids who stood up to the bully did so with their fists on school property. I have been trying to spread the word that these incidents (the one at 5 corners) are considered hate crimes and are punishable under federal and state laws but now that students have taken justice into their own hands, it makes it much harder and more complicated to prosecute. I stand by the kids who are standing up to the bully but I do so with my words, not my fists. Need more? Let me know.
TL;DR: (what I got from the reports, not what necessarily happened) bullies engaged in verbal provocation or insults with the original victim off school grounds, nobody contacted authorities of that jurisdiction, some time later other bullies physically assaulted the original bullies (now victims too!) on school grounds, and the school is obligated to take action against the second round of bullies as the assaults happened in its jurisdiction.
People are turning it around claiming that the school turned a blind eye to perpetrators of an alleged hate crime while punishing heroes for "standing up" against the the alleged perpetrators. It's a huge mess, and it sounds like there are a LOT of guilty people.
It took Facebook almost 4 years to reach 50 million users in 2007 (source) Facebook was fairly relevant in 2007.
I'm guessing that Google+ is now the 3rd largest internet social network in the world (behind Facebook and Twitter). Does that sound right?
The problem is that so many people assume there will be a complete migration from one social network to the next, like how everyone left MySpace for Facebook. But that wont happen again. Most people wont fully abandon Facebook for Google+ or vice versa.
When the next big social network comes around in a few years, people are going to be sick of building up their friends lists from scratch. Hopefully by then social network websites will just be a front end for your social network database file that is completely independent.
Can you imagine if you could only email someone using the same email service as you? That's kind of how I feel about these social networking sites right now. Can anyone give me more info about plans to setup an open social networking protocol or something along those lines?
No, I mean what I say and say what I mean.
edit: why the downvotes to sharoku? it adds to the conversation and is a common misconception?
Looks like someone who was there is breaking the news... so still unconfirmed. But if it's true, It's on!

2nd EDIT: Confirmed. They are saying it was the Lord's Prayer over the PA system.
The big bearded guy's name was Charles "Big Chick" Huntsberry, Prince's legendary first personal bodyguard.
He's in Purple Rain, the movie, too. He died in 1990 (and didn't have any life insurance - so Prince played a tribute concert to collect money for the family it seems -> http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/11468421.html ).
There's also a "Big Chick" Facebook fanpage -> https://www.facebook.com/pages/Charles-Big-Chick-Huntsberry/107330209302440
Apparently he's quite big in the chalk drawing scene of Tacoma, and they have that event on a regular basis..
He also talked about that portal art on facebook
From his facebook, Sep 9th:
>Im flying to Afghanistan tomorrow to do some filming in the desert, Im out there for a week, so Ill have some cool videos up soon. Til then I have a paintball video from a month or so back I was thinking of uploading, let me know if you guys wanna see it.
Wow...So I didn't expect this to get many votes.
TO ALL YOU NONBELIEVERS:
The post was made in a group for my university. All the likes came because everyone in the group goes to...the same...university. Amazing, huh?
Anyways, you can find the post if you scroll down. Sorry I never included this to begin with.
Comparison of this particular device vs. others
Stolen from the TRL discussion of this video:
"I can't find much info on this DP802i device but it appears to be wildly inaccurate or you need to leave it there for a long time to get a proper reading. At the 1:50 mark you can see that the white radex geiger counter sitting on top of the thorium mantels is measuring ~2.1 uSv/h. The Dp802i sitting to the left and further away is measuring about 9.3 uSv/h. It is of course not possible to get such a higher reading from further away with less surface area. I think the algorithms of the device is over compensating for the rate of change or it needs a very long time to get a proper idea of dose."
I would like to see this same video from with the device allowed to sit longer in the dirt.
Can't believe no one posted the link to the account deletion page yet so here goes:

I need to read back and review my responses; I never meant to give that impression! I just don't like talking specific salary figures ($5000+ a month is the most I'll say).
I love working here. Every day I get to work on a product I know millions of people are going to use. as an intern I own a specific project, and will be able to deploy it at the end of my internship. I'm working with some awesome people who know there stuff, and I'm constantly learning.
Secondarily, I get awesome perks, such as Food, cool tech talks, fun events, and more.
I'm having a blast here.

Did some quick searches online and found their facebook page and website. On their facebook it says that their magazine is on sale at the Virgin Megastore, and it looks like a pretty polished operation so I'm certain that there's money coming in.
Has it become this easy now for publications to just search flickr and get people to send their photos like this? Or should I get off my high horse and not worry about it? I have to admit it would be very cool to see my photo in the magazine - but I feel like they are worth more than giving away.

You can checkout more on him, see videos, and donate to help:
He didn't only avoid questions. He blatantly lied. He said he was hacked, which was false. He said he suspected it was a prank played on him because of his name, which was false.
Also, after he made the twitter blunder, he made a post from the facebook page he used to make these sexual advances, saying:
>Hello Friends. I know this page has been dry for a while, but if you've gotten any odd emails, chats or notices from here recently, drop me a note.
That's a clear attempt to manufacture the alibi that it was not him having those sex chats. I don't know why he would think that would suffice if he sent photos of himself to the women and used his congressional phoneline to contact them. If I were one of the women, that move would definitely make me want to go public and expose the jerk.
I know it's 3 hours late and whatnot, but if you still wanted a picture, I made one earlier with a little explanation here
I think it should be said that the stalker ticker (which is what I've decided to call it) shows everything your friends do in real time. Even if it's a post to another non-friends' wall. You can then hover over that comment/post and see everything commented (even if their profile is set to private). This seems to be quite an invasion of privacy since there's no way to opt-out of having your stuff put on the stalker ticker.
I have found something to put into adblock+ that hides the ticker. Granted, it doesn't keep your stuff off of it, but at least you don't have to look at the annoying thing.
Add this to your Adblock+ filter set:
Looks like the cat's out of the bag.

No it doesn't, at least, not completely.

Okay. There's the Facebook group for the easiest/least effective move. https://www.facebook.com/#!/SaveSGU. That said, the group has jumped a few thousand members this week.
Next up, buy the DVDs. Not just SGU, but SGA and SG-1. Syfy isn't the only player here. The recently bankrupted MGM (under new management) is also a player, and can choose to at least release a DVD movie eventually, or shop the franchise out to another network. SYFY is a sinking ship.
On top of that, visiting the official website, watching vids on Hulu, etc. all go into the calculus as to whether a show is worth resurrecting or not. More important than anything, though, is to start showing the series to your friends. Firefly was a ratings flop when it was first released, partly due to similar issues of "timeslot of death," choices by its network. It was word of mouth that increased sales enough to give us Serenity.
On this matter, if you think I'm full of shit, you can go back and see me predicting SGU's failure would kill the SG-1 and SGA movies back when that would get you downvoted in this subreddit... So I'm asking for a bit of faith here.

I'd say apart from having to wait a few more seconds to make a right turn, these lanes present no problems and are a step in the right direction for Vancouver. I wish politicians like Anton and Rob Ford (Toronto) would stop making these into such a wedge issue.
We do, however, need to focus on other areas besides the downtown core. Bike-friendly streets in Vancouver are decent, but we could really use more public transit. The only way to get most people out of their cars and into the future is to make transit an attractive service.
For anyone interested in pushing for transit expansion and service improvements, there's a facebook page called 4TransitNow
I can 100% guarantee that comments on that page will be seen by people at Translink and City Hall.
According <em>to the photograph's owner</em> via blogTO, Ford wasn't drunk and the marks on his shirt are rain.

Zachary want make documentary about me : http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/zudio/documentary-on-white-ra" Feel free to support it or not.
Nonito Donaire said it best:
>"Protect yourself at all times. This is boxing. WHen some1 hits you once, don't look n e where else, cover your face! Once the ref says go, you better put your hands up, esp after you got deducted for an intentional headbutt, cuz your opponent doesn't have to accept your apology. And what the hell was that kiss all about?
>It can be classless, it can be unsportmanike, even opportunistic, but unforunately, its still legal. Would I pull a mayweather? No. But would I pull an Ortiz and be THAT close to a fighter even IF he was saying sorry? No. Id keep arms length away."
Also, I doubt Ortiz is as classy as everyone thinks he is. If he were, he wouldn't have headbutt like that. As many professional and amateur fights as this guy has been in and he winds back and lunges forward a la Zidiene Zidane as soon as he gets frustrated? I don't buy that "class" act one bit. If you're the kind of person to get "caught up in the moment" and start throwing fouls, you should rethink your position in the sport.
Floyd gave this guy as much respect as he earned throughout the fight, a boxing 101 lesson and a life lesson to boot. Keep your hands up when the ref says fight and don't fight dirty if you don't want a dirty fight.

hi my name's jake and i'm a product manager on the site integrity team at facebook. the screenshot you linked above is only shown in cases where either a user has self identified as hacked (e.g. go through recovery flows after saying they were compromised, disavowed a password change on their account, etc) or was flagged by an automated system as having had its account compromised by a professional cyber criminal.
in all situations the 1st thing you would see is an explanation that your account has been locked to prevent any further unauthorized access and restore access to the rightful owner. the vast majority of the time you can self resolve by answering a security challenge, but sometimes we have enough suspicion that the cyber criminal is trying to regain control (eg you always use the site from new york, and now someone in siberia is attempting a security challenge) that we require ID to make sure that the criminal (who steals identities for a living) isn't getting into your account.
that ID is reviewed by our user operations team and immediately deleted thereafter before restoring access to your account. to learn more about how to keep your account secure, please check out https://www.facebook.com/help?page=18887. thanks.
Actually, contact facebook via https://www.facebook.com/help/?page=842 , which allows you to memorialize their page. It can be a place for healing and remembrance.
"When a user passes away, we memorialize their account to protect their privacy. Memorializing an account sets the account privacy so that only confirmed friends can see the profile or locate it in search. The Wall remains, so friends and family can leave posts in remembrance. Memorializing an account also prevents anyone from logging into the account."
I cordially invite you to join the Reddit Phoenix crowd. You can find us here: https://www.facebook.com/#!/groups/redditphx/?ap=1
Hands down, this is one of the most amazing groups of folks I've had the pleasure to meet. Most of us are east valley, we have a few people who joined the group before moving here, and have had a great time acclimating since they 'knew' people before they got here. We go out and do stuff all the time, and prom is in a couple of weeks.
Reminds me, I need to find an outfit for that.
A friend of mine just got talked down from a Zombie wedding but his wife did allow a "Pre Wedding Zombie Phot Shoot" as seen here:
I'm glad he's improving, and I hope he makes a full recovery soon. There's one significant inaccuracy in this article...
>Organizers said Quan had been invited in an open letter to address the vigil, but she was not present.
She did show up Thursday night 10/27. However, she didn't want to wait her turn to speak, and protesters started yelling and cursing at her. She released a video afterwards on her Facebook page. In the end, it's good that she didn't deliver her message in front of the crowd. It could have sparked a riot. She's completely clueless on what's going on with the Occupy movement on every level.
Here's a facebook link to her reading her statement. I don't think she would have received a warm response after reading this pile of bullshit to an angry crowd that had just been tear gassed, shot with bean bags, had flash grenades thrown at them, arrested, etc.
This is an important issue to me. One of my friends, Jamie Walton, was forced into child prostitution at a very young age. Amazingly enough she grew up to be a healthy adult. She is currently working with Kevin Smith (director/actor) to help get young girls out of these abusive situations.
If you are interested in joining and getting updates, they have a facebook page. They are just getting started so it's still pretty small.
Kevin also did an interview with Jamie on his radio show. It's a very disturbing piece, so be prepared if you listen to it.
EDIT: I've asked Jamie if she and Kevin would be interested in doing an AMA. Would anybody be interested in such an event if they said yes?
Haha hell yeah, I live in Conway AR and I have been trying to figure out the story behind DD Honeycutt for a long time. I think he is a comedian that lives in Little Rock (which is about 30mins away). You can friend him on facebook and he will update his status with some pretty funny stuff every now and again.
An example of a message to send to Andra Tantaros here: https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100002297821863&sk=wall
She is the Fox news journalist who recommended removing Paul from the debates, here's what I and others sent to her earlier:
Andrea, I respect that you have your own opinion and that you are a respected journalist at Fox. You couldn't have made it this far without saying many things right. But I really do believe your comments on Ron Paul are completely inaccurate. In your recent show, you criticized the man for not supporting people who do not agree with traditional conservative beliefs, saying they should "take him out of the debates". As you know, the Constitution clearly warns against that type of behavior, and I would argue that traditional and neo conservatives would agree that censorship is not the answer to any of our problems. I hope you truly reconsider that opinion, but if not, I still do believe you're entitled to it. Although, I'm not sure if we will be entitled to all these opinions of ours under Obama, Cain, Romney, or Perry, as these are all men who believe in socializing the losses of banks and chipping away at personal liberty through centralization of governmental power. The direction we are heading in is dark, and whoever is elected will have to guide us through a great depression, hopefully without completely devaluing the dollar, erasing the Constitution, and centralizing the Government even more. I will be writing in Ron Paul because I feel that his predictions of our current crisis over the past 20-30 years are a small display of his knowledge surrounding the economy and the Constitution.
This looks like interesting and potentially relevant information.
Here's a screenshot in case that gets burried.
The Hub also posted images of them in their Halloween costumes (imgur mirror).
Katie's quote reminds me of this video, which seemed to go viral on Facebook the other day. It's (what should be) an obvious point about the effect of media on women and our society. I thought the video was quite powerful. It's worth a watch, and I am glad there are at least initiatives being made to make positive changes.
The Facebook page states,"We will permanently delete your ID from our servers once we have used it for verification purposes". So they don't have thousands of Redditor's IDs on their servers.
what really baffles/irritates me is some of the comments on their fb page. granted, we live in the south... but, come on.
Stupid Facebook Comments
Via the official GNP fbook page:
Glacial lakes and their outlet streams tend to have very low nutrient levels, a condition described scientifically as "oligotrophic." The oligotrophic waters of the park are largely due to being located near the headwater source of the watersheds, local surface geology, lack of nutrient input from either human or natural sources, cold water temperatures, and short growing seasons."
Which explains the low/lack of algae.
As to the coloration, it doesn't translate well in this picture, but glacial lakes tend to look green (Wikipedia calls it turquoise), due to the aforementioned rock flour, which is derived from jasper.
The rest of the album.
Fuck the new chat, but I bet that Mantraa's post is closest to right...
Also, if you, like me, think the new chat sucks PLEASE write a complaint here: https://www.facebook.com/help/contact.php?show_form=ui_chat2 - my friend who works at facebook said these DO get read en masse and they take them into account. If enough people write shit about the new chat it might do something...
You might consider the Second Strings Project. From the site:
"Singer/Songwriter, Darryl Purpose, and activist Kevin Deame announced the formation of The Second Strings Project, a campaign to collect and distribute used guitar strings to needy musicians throughout the world. This effort will help keep musical creativity alive in countries that might otherwise die."
I haven't contributed yet, but I have a batch of old strings about ready to pack up and ship.
I follow him on twitter and he tweeted the link to his facebook page.
If that doesn't work, his twitter handle is @RepJerryNadler
