I came across this article on the BBC. It shows photographs of iconic buildings captured in water droplets. I think it would be neat to have jewelery with a similar concept.
Buzzfeed has a one question golden retriever quiz up and I think the answers are sweet. If you want to try it:
Hello everyone. So I haven’t talked much about the drama my relative is going through on here, but shit just got way worse (or rather the true situation was revealed). Does anyone one have a recommendation for a good law firm in Florida (Tallahassee area)? I think we need one for a possible sexual harassment lawsuit…
I thought this was a neat way to do something good for animals while still hunting Pokemon.
For today a Notorious RBG book is on sale for $1.99 on Kindle. I haven’t read it, but if you are thinking you want to read it then 2 bucks is pretty cheap.
I think embroidery scenes from your relationship is a neat idea for a wedding dress. I think it would also be a cool idea for dresses actresses wear to film premieres. Think how neat it would have been to have Emma Watson show up in a dress embroidered with scenes from Harry Potter.
I came across an article on Buzzfeed that I think has a good message. A man Snapchatted reasons people should quit smoking. I think it was a good message for him to share. Some of the comments on the article are pretty heartbreaking. There is one woman who wrote that her daughter begged her dad to quit smoking for…
I just finished reading an article on Buzzfeed by Katie Baker. In the article the rape victim addresses her rapist and all the things that she went through because of the rape and the ensuing trial. Her rapist was found guilty of three counts of sexual assault yet received a very light sentence. The length of his…
I just read an article on Buzzfeed about a man drugging his friend’s drink at a restaurant. Some women saw and alerted her to the situation. It must be horrible to find out a friend was trying to drug you. If you read the Facebook post you can tell that the whole thing was really planned out. She had left her car at…
I had never thought about when neonatal care for premature babies developed in the United States. Apparently a lot of that care developed after the work Martin Couney did caring for premature babies. I think it is a fascinating bit of history.
There is BBC website that gives you an estimate of the makeup of your body based on your date of birth, weight, and height. It tells you the amount of certain chemicals that should be in your body. It said I had enough phosphorus in me to make over 3 million matches. There is some interesting stuff to look at.
Here is an interesting article about how the Nazca created a system which ensured they had access to water thoughout the year. The region where the Nazca settled was very arid.
Paul Gatling an 81 year old black man just had his wrongful murder conviction overturned. He was convicted in 1963 but served 9 years before his sentence was commuted. This man spent 9 years in prison for a crime he didn’t commit. And he was still viewed as a felon after his release. I cannot even imagine how hellish…
The anti-LGBT law that North Carolina recently passed has already led to some economic consequences. Cities, states, companies, and individuals are starting to boycott the state because of the law.
There was a shooting in Hesston, Kansas earlier today. There are conflicting reports on how many are dead but news is reporting 3-4 dead and 20 wounded. It is tragic and enraging that mass shootings are now so common in the USA.
Sigh. I want to sleep but so far it is not happening. My dog however is deep in dreamland, he is growling at imagery enemies. Is anyone one else on GT? Open thread. Talk about whatever.
He is laying beside me in bed, fast asleep. I want to be asleep too! It is 1 a.m. here. I hope my pain meds kick in soon and knock me out. Open thread for anyone else awake.
Trigger warning: talk about suicide
Some of these things would make great gifts for pugs lovers.
Hello everyone. I am excited to be an author. Thank you to the mods for approving me. Fellow Californians and book lovers if you ever go to Los Angeles go to one of the LA public library branches and get a library card. Any California resident can get a LA library card which gives you access to their digital book…
