It pisses me off that people seem to think rabbits are "easy" pets. They're not. It's fucking heartless to get rabbits and just leave them outside in tiny cages. They're lovely and loving animals who deserve so much more.

Just found one of my new favorite quotes.  It's from Taylor Swift's defense lawyer:

Quote
Plaintiffs’ claim to being the only ones in the world who can refer to players playing and haters hating is frivolous…Providing a copyright monopoly in the phrase would prevent others from sharing the idea that players play and haters hate.

I'd like to express my displeasure at this, but I can't afford it.

Those inclined to hatred are going to partake of hate, dog.

My fiancee has been learning Korean, but she keep having issues because she feels like she's not making enough progress on it. Since I'm wanting to improve myself and have always wanted to be multilingual since I feel somewhat rude not speaking more than one language, I started it too. Asian languages fuck me up, man. I also figured that another fairly language I could go for while I'm working on Korean, since Korean is going to be a long road to fluency, is Spanish. I was planning to do Mandarin, but it's similar enough to Korean that I'd probably mix the lessons up in my head, and Spanish will be useful. I already learned the phrase "No es un pato", which I'm pretty sure is going to come up a lot.

My throat started feeling a bit sore yesterday. It's a little better now so I'm hoping this doesn't turn into a full blown cold.

It's all just a grim march to the grave while watching everything you love be corrupted or destroyed, so it's fine.

Going over to some guys house, making a bunch of fried chicken, and then throwing it all out. #wastinghisthyme

I was just reading comments on a Facebook page, and multiple people commented on their distress at shocking their pets with static with the extreme cold and consequent low house humidity. So I thought I'd share this.

In some electronics stores (and online), one can find 'static discharge pads' that are self-adhesive. These are generally used for electronics safety, but I'm expanding their usefulness here. Some of them are as small as 2x2", but regardless of size, they should have a wire coming out of them that one connects to a grounding post somewhere (the screw on an electrical outlet is adequate if there is conduit in the walls instead of just insulated wires). I'd suggest attaching these near common areas where one pets one's pets ;) , and get in the habit of discharging oneself into it when one sees the pet approaching.

If possible, you may want to also have a large enough one on the floor that the pet would step on it on its way to you, because you may not be the source of the static: if you have carpet, your friend walking around is rubbing fur on plastic, which is pretty much guaranteed to cause static. Since cats naturally stand in squares on the ground, if one has a static discharge pad that is maybe 10x10", utilizing it shouldn't be an issue for feline family members (once they are used to it being present), and I suspect many dogs will ignore such things on their way for a good head-skritching. :)

I hope this helps prevent a few disrupted relationships this Winter (and beyond) ['next Winter' for those Forum members below the equator :) ].
