roseanne is a hateful bag of air who regularly talks out of her ass.

a magazine (i can't remember which one) commented on twitter about why Roseanne hadn't responded to Riel's letter, she threw a 13 year old capitalized hissy twitter fit, saying everything she said were lies and she was being picked on because she was a woman. the tweets were later deleted.

The German name for the game is "Stille Post" (silent mail), which I feel describes it quite well without invoking any old stereotypes.
On the other hand, whether something incomprehensible is Chinese, Greek or Spanish to you does not really reflect negatively on the language or the associated people, it is the speaker who is describing him/herself at fault here.

On hiring based on hobbies, my observations are these:

1) Plenty of cool hobbies require little expenditure beyond pen and paper levels. I hate to bang the am dram drum again but even taking the point that the piece was written with specific regard to tech, most groups are always on the lookout for techie help. And I've mentioned at least one of our disabled members before here. And if you can find a public library that's still open, book groups cost no more than a box of teabags and pack of biscuits. I don't buy the 'exclusive' argument for a minute, actually.

2) I know for a fact that my CV has floated up piles of otherwise identical GCSE/A level/BA CVs because of my acting and writing. I stand out a bit against the football that all the other sales weasels claim to play. So, yeah. But then what happens without fail is that I take a job, with accompanying praise about what a breath of fresh air I am with my interesting hobbies... but of course I'll have to give all that up now, won't I?

The Philly Link

Not shocked at all. I suppose if we want to be 'fair' it would get looked into, but whenever people start talking about Voter ID laws (like the ones the PA Supreme Court semi-handled before the election) get the buzz, its not-so-secret code for voter suppression of minorities, students and the elderly. Gov Corbett is one of those Tea Party jackasses anyway. So that should tell ya something.

Anyways, with the way Romney/Ryan shot themselves in the feet, especially the 47% video disaster, there shouldn't be any shock at all. Racist dog-whistles are heard by the rest of us who recognize it for what it is.

I would be suspicious of voter fraud if the vote split between Obama and Romney because Philly is really that highly registered in the Democratic party and has consistantly voted blue.

I'm doing pretty well. Working and writing for NaNoWriMo this month. :)

Was thinking more about that article and I think it's funny how Philly is targeted, but I'm wondering just how many votes Obama got in rural counties in PA. Also, I thought of you last night when my dad started ranting to me how America's going to descend into chaos in ten years because Obamacare. There was lots of headdesking in this argument. But I thought of you because he started talking about Europe and blah blah blah and I was like "Man, where's SB to explain England's set up?" But you know, I'm sure somehow Bill O'Reilly is more of an authority than you are. XD
