Point of comparison
Comparing these images is kind of ridiculous. Women don’t all look the same at 3, 6, or even 9 months of pregnancy. A girl in my high school got pregnant in 10th grade. She was very athletic and played on the basketball team until she was 8 months pregnant. At no point in her pregnancy did she wear maternity clothes, and simply by wearing multiple layers was she able to hide it. No one knew...

McCain you are a son of a bitch
shiningstar: muppetpants: jackieheartsb: shiningstar: McCain, this whole ‘picking a woman’ thing is really, really low and an obvious ploy to snatch up all of Hillary’s supporters. I hope it backfires. And with all due respect, Governor Sarah Palin, you’re an idiot. Jumping on a sinking ship isn’t the best thing to do at this point. I don’t know anything about your political stance...

kayfabe: nickdougla: There are 199 “Nick Douglas” or “Nicholas Douglas”es in the U.S. Only one Thor Muller (friend), one Lockhart Steele (former editor), one Cole Stryker (friend and he’s in England right now so I guess that makes none). Lucky bastards. There are 1 or fewer people with my name in the U.S.A. It’s the “or fewer” that scares me. I am also the only one with my name. I’m...
You Get What You Pay For
From Seth Godin’s blog: If you don’t want spam in your inbox, never respond, never buy anything. Not even if it’s a good deal.

If you don’t want people ringing your door asking for donations, don’t give, no matter what. If you think...

Anyone want to read this book?
A preschool teacher finds a whole new dark and dangerous world when she’s suddenly anointed with demon-fighting powers and attracts the attention of a sexy shape-shifting griffin. All is not grim because inexplicably, she is able to hear her Jack Russell terrier’s crazy and sometimes hilarious thoughts. Yeah, me either. It’s a real book though. Watch out New York Times...

The patient was admitted to hospital with complaints of pain, dribbling urine and acute urinary retention spanning a 24-hour period. According to the boy, the fish slipped into his penis while he was...

MLB Instant Replay To Start On Thursday I’ve never been a fan of getting instant replay in baseball. If they keep it to home run calls, I suppose I could get behind the idea. It’s a slippery slope, though. This guy agrees.

musicbrain: I was reminded of this today by my friend Rachel. Cortisol levels generally peak in the morning between 6 and 8:30 AM anyway, but that peak is even higher for lonely people. This hormone can actually damage memory cells in the hippocampi. Am I promoting sex? Not exactly, but dammit, we humans need each other. Oh nice. More great news.
