The problem this year was headlines in our region screamed that flu cases were already ramping up late-September, so I got the vaccine early October. Now I’m going to be flipping my shit by March because no one can seem to agree on how much protection declines in 6 months. Read more

Thank you for this important article. I am sorry that you have to endure this every time you eat. I’ve had a crash course in what not to do, from various ailments and misdiagnoses. I’m not truly allergic to anything, but I do have reactions. (Some intestinal, some sinus inflammation). During years of confusion, I Read more

I am white and I have seen some hiring practices, which I believe are used to discriminate against people based on appearance and political views. Sadly, I have also witnessed some ugly, illegal behavior from my employer and even our union rep which leads me to believe that reporting it would be beyond worthless. I Read more

You are right, there is no legal requirement. However, if someone came up and began snapping photos of a child, they would clearly qualify as a creep. Furthermore, flying drones may negatively impact wildlife, and it also violates the nature reserve’s noise and mechanical device restrictions. Patrons don’t visit the Read more

Aw, what a shame! Who can we depend on to discriminate against hiring unattractive women after Hooters is gone?

Yeah, I’m good with this. At my job (in a nature reserve) I’ve already had to remind people that flying drones is against the rules and several of my coworkers have been verbally abused by the drone assholes, some of whom refuse to comply. One man proudly showed me all the people he had photographed (mostly patrons Read more

I’m sorry but the Red Cross are a bunch of scammers. After Sandy, they were caught “setting aside” many of the donations for “future use” even when hundreds of people were still homeless, freezing cold, hungry and sick. If you have $50, split the donations between several small local orgs and read about them first. Read more

I don’t have kids - but one time I was at the grocery store, and a woman walked by with a young child (perhaps 2 or 3 years old) who had features of Down’s Syndrome. This little girl was smiling, and I’ve almost no interest in kids, but this little girl lit up the place. I couldn’t get over how joyful and sweet she Read more

I think it’s more calling out Gizmodo, and on a side note, sharing dirt about Facebook on Facebook is the best thing ever. My account was more strict after I did, I’m sure THAT was just a coincidence.

I LOVE this stuff and I’m obsessed with Halloween. But listen, before you dress your pet? Ask your veterinarian how to do it safely. And for fuck’s sake, don’t balance them on the counter to pose for Instagram. Small animals like cats and bunnies really hate being dressed up, they’re prey animals, they’re stressed out Read more

Pure curiosity (also feel free tell me to fuck off it it’s too personal) did you get anti-virals? My doctor said if I got the flu before I got the vaccine, just come in ASAP and they could still help me.

I just got my vaccine. Now I no longer have to worry all night about swine flu or *sepsis! Instead I’ll obsess over guillaine barre. Good times! Read more

I work as a nature guide at a similarly “preserved” and toured area. It is natire rather than history (lots of hiking trails) - but some of it may have belonged to Native Americans too. Some parks have scripts for their guides - but the more laid-back ones may let whoever is a guide that year to do their own research. Read more

I had a cat with like, 18 different diseases and even when he was in remission, I felt horrible leaving him for a few days. I asked our vet tech-pet sitter to check in often. She would only call for emergencies (we didn’t have any) but would text often. It would only vibrate but I felt rude texting at the table. So Read more

I’m sort of perma-greyed here but, assuming you can see my comment, I’m a former vet tech and cat expert. The kitten could certainly have gotten into something poisonous, like anti-freeze which cats do drink by accident. I’m sure it happened long before anyone found her. I’m so very sorry. If you need to chat, my Read more
