Sometimes you just learn something strange you'd like to share but there is no good place.


TIL: The subreddit /r/marijuanaenthusiasts is actually about trees, dendrology and getting trees identified from pictures. It has this name becase /r/trees was already taken by marijuana enthusiasts who didn't want to give up the name.

I'd pass on Kate Mulgrew's, though I can see why Lynda especially would be too much on the bridge.
BTW: I don't recall her being mentioned in the first crush thread, which I felt was a travesty at the time...

Spoken languages evolve over time. So if you're a grammar nazi, you may be the one who's wrong.

TIL that if we have free will we may have already exercised it all before we were conceived in our mothers' wombs.

BBC - Earth - Physics suggests that the future is already set in stone
It is said by some that we pick this life and we choose our parents knowing full well the triumphs and tragedies that will befall us. The last thing to happen before we leave the Spirit world for this one is that the Angel presses it's fingers to our lips to seal them (hence the indentation above our top lip) so that we may not speak of the Spirit world once we have entered the physical realm.

The Spirit world is the easy part, it's this physical world that's a ******-******

TIL that this thread has been going on since last October and I've never seen it before.

So, TIL all kinds of ****.

Thanks for noticing! I needed a break from all negativity, with the election, saints season and falcons in the SB I needed to walk away from all forums and social media as I found myself being very negative and seeing people I really respect having meltdowns and saying things out of anger and frustration that the would later regret. I've checked in from time to time but tried not to post. After reading Andrus on the political board and reading responses I see most of the people I respect on both sides have opened their eyes and realized we are all saints fans. Anyway good to be back. Hope you and the family are well.

First SB of my life I did not watch a play. Couldn't stomach it. I did watch the replay with a smile on my face the entire time!

I think it is too, as long as it's kept in perspective. There are those who would say of others who suffer "well you chose this path". That's how India at times rationalizes its caste system-- you're not to interfere with others working out their Karma.

Be kind to everyone. every person you meet is fighting some kind of battle :)

Typing "I'm feeling curious" in a google search will get you random trivia facts.
