Jaco Brill7,60025 May is International Towel day, celebrating the life and works of Douglas Adams. Remember to take your towel with you where ever you go! Remember to post pics with your towel!International Towel Day2013-05-25 07:00:0064  
NASA2,451,840Having trouble watching the event? Try watching directly on YouTube at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u8LI5JiWEfs --------- Have you ever asked a question to someone in space? No? Well now’s your chance. In a first for the agency, NASA will host a Google+ Hangout live with the International Space Station on Feb. 22 from 10:30 a.m EST to 11:30 a.m. EST. Google+ Hangouts allow people to chat face-to-face while thousands more can tune in to watch the conversation live on Google+ or YouTube. This unique opportunity will connect you, our fans, with astronauts living and working on the orbiting laboratory 240 miles above the Earth. During the event, several video questions will be selected and answered by astronauts on the space station and on the ground. Additionally, NASA will ask real-time questions submitted by our followers on Google+, Twitter, and Facebook. Unique and original questions are more likely to be selected. You can view the Hangout live on the NASA Google+ page or the NASA Television YouTube channel to watch the astronauts answer the questions. SUBMITTING REAL-TIME QUESTIONS To ask a real-time question during the event on Google+ or Twitter, please use the hashtag #askAstro. You can also post a comment on a thread on NASA’s Facebook page that will open for questions on the morning of the event. WATCHING THE GOOGLE+ HANGOUT To join the hangout, and for updates and opportunities to participate in upcoming hangouts, visit NASA's Google+ page at http://plus.google.com/+NASA. During the hangout, astronauts Kevin Ford, Chris Hadfield and Tom Marshburn will answer questions and provide insights about life aboard the station. Station crews conduct a variety of science experiments and perform station maintenance during their six-month stay on the outpost. Their life aboard the station in near-weightlessness requires unique approaches to everyday activities such as eating, sleeping and exercising.NASA Long-Distance Google+ Hangout to Connect with Space Station2013-02-22 16:30:008329  
Andrij “Andrew” Harasewych342,516It's been a pretty disappointing year for some of us, celestial sights wise. There have been the usual meteor showers (it was cloudy for me every time), the transit of Venus (also cloudy) and several eclipses (none were visible from my area). Luckily, we still have the Geminids left. They're generally considered to be one of the best and most reliable meteor showers of the year, so hopefully we'll get a good show. They will appear to radiate from the constellation of Gemini, and you could spot up to 120 meteors per hour. The moon will be new meaning that visibility should be very good. Although Dec 13th-14th is the peak, meteors will be visible for several days before and after that so don't forget to look up this week. As usual, if you get any good photographs/videos please send them our way!Geminid Meteor Shower2012-12-14 00:00:00163

Are you married? Divorced?
A friend asks: "How do u know its time to get married? How do u know they are the one? Why do one in three fail when they all went in thinking forever? Is it more work being married than not? Is being married worth it? Is it a license to stop working on being together or is it easier with the ring on?"

She opted to remain anonymous. And no it's not me asking.

So
I've lost many friends online and IRL due to my opinions and recent posts on Israel and Gaza; one sending me a message that they are disappointed in me, many trying to change my point of view or calling me anti-Semitic or generally spewing a host of tu quoque or other ballsack fallacies. Whatever, so is life. My last words on this, at least online, for prosperity:

1. I'm against the killing of innocent children. This does not make me an anti-Semite. To accuse any critic of Israeli policy as anti-Semitic, is to trivialize the holocaust and is an insult to the genuine suffering of the Jewish people.

2. Fighting a principled war is one thing, but targeting non combatants in that war is a war crime and awfully close to the definition of terrorism.

3. Jingoism is just as dangerous as any brand of fundamentalism. This applies to both sides.

4. I... more »

So sick of seeing white-privilege-blind-racism-apologists in my stream. If your argument against police brutality is, "What do you expect if you poke a bear?" or any other inane logical fallacy, then you probably fall in this category. Frosting a verbal turd with #AllLivesMatter platitudes, does not a rainbow cupcake make.

On Circles
Why was the circle sharing relegated to the G+raveyard? Does anyone know? I met 90% of the best people in the world through those shares. What a pity.

Also, it's a great day when TELETUBBIES 2 adds you to their circles. So much better than 1. Just think of the possibilities.

This could be the beginning of a beautiful friendship.

Fundo
A couple of years ago, I took a really strong sleeping pill. The thing is you’re actually supposed to go to bed. I didn’t, which totally fucked with my mind to the point that I was outside of myself. This led to me sending the craziest G+ messages to someone I was flirting with.

At that point, we were at the ‘just friends’ stage. He knew he wasn’t in the friend zone, but he didn’t know I wanted to put him in the V zone and then some. By some miracle I realized what I was doing, and he hadn’t yet read the messages so I deleted it.

I went to bed and four hours later I jumped up in a panic remembering the messages, but not sure whether I deleted them or dreamt that I deleted them. Fortunately I did. And he never knew. Or he did and just pretended not to. Either way, I was never as grateful for the delete button as I was then.

Then there are the ones where I was on the receiving end.  I’d read something someone sent on G+ in an email notification with text included, or the person’s email recall failed. The person would think I hadn’t read it and I’d pretend I didn’t just to save them the embarrassment, but I still suffered from secondary shame...I could always tell they were sussing me out to see whether I’d read it or not, which made me feel worse. But in the bigger scheme of things their primary shame was probably worse than mine.

The new Gmail Email Undo Send option must be a god send to the impulsive types. Now if only they’d come up with an undo button for the mouth.___

On The N-Word, Stars And Bars
So the POTUS used a painful racial slur to illustrate a point. Some think it should never be used, ever again; That it be relegated to the same museum as the Confederate flag. I’m not sure some of the offended realize that any taboo word can be used objectively, with the literary, artistic or rhetorical intent to bolster an opinion. 

In my country, the word “kaffir” holds just as much racial offense as “nigger”, with just as much pain and power as a slur or obscenity. But, I can use it in the context of this paragraph and not have the entire African continent baying for my blood. 

‘Kaffir’ is an Arabic word meaning ‘non-believer', with etymological roots in the Arabic owned African slave trade. As a person of mixed race with actual Malay-African slaves as ancestors, I’m not offended by anyone’s use of it.

Provided it’s used objectively, and not stuck on a freaking pole, waving willy nilly in the Southern cross wind, serving not a noble intent, but an egregious one symbolic of subjugation, racial segregation, murder and slavery. 

Yet, even if I was a hood loving white supremacist piece of shit - freedom of speech would allow me to say  ‘all day nigger’ and fly a version of the Confederate Battle flag outside my home. But, there’d be nothing objective nor well-intentioned about it. 

This doesn’t mean I don’t have the right to do it, but common sense, decency and a thorough history lesson would tell me I’d probably be better at humaning if I didn’t. I shouldn’t, because it’s just downright mean. 

There’s no dissonance in these views. Intent, context, motivation, it makes all the difference.

The full poem by Erin Hanson gets my gooses all pimply. Takes me back to my childhood for some reason. Perhaps it's reminiscent of e.e. cummings, one of my favourite romantic poets (besides the insensitive poem he wrote where he speaks of a nigger holding a star in his hand; He claimed it was shining a spotlight on prejudice, but I'm sure there were better ways to do that.)

that some Americans would learn that Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Yemen, North Korea and similar do not come highly recommended on TripAdvisor.com. If you happen to be that stupid American that packs a bible and sunscreen heading for the sunny shores of blow your head off and someone asks your name, I highly suggest you say, "أنا لا أتكلم الإنجليزية" or "내가 영어 를 못하는" or similar. Trust me on this one.

I’m officially a horrible person - I actually looked at the nudes of some of the hacked celebrities.
Honestly, they have nothing to be ashamed of. Their photographs are a glowing private glorification of their beautiful bodies, their sexuality and their selfie lives in general. But still. As much as I feel they should shake off the shackles of cultural and societal norms associated with body and sexuality shaming, I am appalled that their privacy was invaded in such a despicable way. Those who blame them for taking nudes of themselves in the first place, should ask themselves whether they approve or disapprove of the NSA’s flagrant invasion of privacy. The bullshit fallacy “nothing to hide, nothing to fear” or “don’t take nudes on your cellphone then play victim when your privacy is invaded” does not apply.

On Love and Depression
When I glance across my timeline, the posts that attract me are usually the ones shared privately. Those are the ones that give insights into the true mindset of those in my circles. What saddens me is when some of them are tinged with whispers of depression, loneliness or disillusionment with failed relationships. It's not overt, and I could be wrong, but it's what I perceive.

Often my intent is to reach out, to offer some encouraging words, but inevitably I back away. Selfishly, perhaps, lest I find myself entangled in a personal issue that I know I won't have time to be truly committed to. There's nothing worse than someone saying they'll be there for you, when in reality it's not that easy. So instead, I flit past while sending quiet words of hope and love to that person.

I have no idea where this post is going nor why I'm posting it - perhaps it's just to say, "You'll be okay, kid. You are in my thoughts even though I'm too much of a lazy selfish bitch to actually be there for you, here's hoping my thoughts of you are enough."  Now I feel bad :/ Oh this thing called life. Listen to A.A. Milne instead, he had it right.

In Which I Effing Hate Windows

Tell me again how unfortunate I am to be a Macphile? I effing love Apple.___

So
This Irish chick gives 24 blow jobs to guys in a bar and is filmed doing it. It goes viral. What ensues? Slut shaming. What ensues the ensued? Mansplaining and more slut shaming with a good dose of other politically correct catchphrases and attempts at pithy statements of empowerment. The question that stumps my mind  - when is it okay to call someone a slut? Or should that word just be banned? I think a woman can do whatever she wants, provided it harms none. In this case her personal choices don't affect me at all, so whatever. 

Though, sometimes, just sometimes, I wish we'd dispense with being politically correct and call things for what they are.

Gimme the loot
Why has looting and rioting become synonymous? Riots are by virtue of its meaning a violent disturbance of peace - but should this automatically degenerate to all out anarchy? Why does protesting against an injustice turn some seemingly sane people into almost rabid animals? Whether it's violence, looting or rape - in the US, UK or Egypt, the sudden surge of degeneracy is bizarre. I know there's a perfectly smart sociological explanation for all this but I'm too tired to look it up or if I've read it before, I'm too old to remember. For now suffice to say I find it downright stupid. Lord of the motherfucking flies.

I Don't Get It
Two of my secret guilty pleasures are Pootie Tang and KPOP. KPOP for the uninitiated, is a FLA for Korean Pop (more specifically Korean music and drama). I watch Korean dramas for at least 20 hours a week (yes really). I watch KPOP via an app called Dramafever which I signed up for using an old business Facebook account. 

As of this week, I suddenly began receiving Twitter news emails on an unrelated inactive personal Twitter account with absolutely no link to my Facebook business account. Here's the part I don't get... - the entire Twitter news email is in Korean with most of the items related to Korean dramas and music. Now how did they know that? Where is the link?

Further, a couple of months ago I setup a business G+ account and lo and behold my suggested friends was from my @Dede circles. Given that I didn't even use the same emaila... more »

As of this week, I suddenly began receiving Twitter news emails on an unrelated inactive personal Twitter account with absolutely no link to my Facebook business account. Here's the part I don't get... - the entire Twitter news email is in Korean with most of the items related to Korean dramas and music. Now how did they know that? Where is the link?

Further, a couple of months ago I setup a business G+ account and lo and behold my suggested friends was from my @Dede circles. Given that I didn't even use the same email account to create the business account with the only thing in common being my cellphone number for verification and the computer I'm using - should this be allowed ? Is G+ using my cellphone number to cross reference my related accounts to auto-suggest people? Conversely is Twitter deciding my nationality based on some incestuous meta-technological link to Facebook?

In light of everything that's happening in the world (ISIS, Ferguson, eating hummus to raise awareness for Ebola etc) I realize my concerns are trivial and most likely irrelevant considering no one ever died from receiving an email in Korean - nevertheless - I'm curious. It's pretty curious isn't it?

Annyeong. Sa da tay! ___

So
I've lost many friends online and IRL due to my opinions and recent posts on Israel and Gaza; one sending me a message that they are disappointed in me, many trying to change my point of view or calling me anti-Semitic or generally spewing a host of tu quoque or other ballsack fallacies. Whatever, so is life. My last words on this, at least online, for prosperity:

1. I'm against the killing of innocent children. This does not make me an anti-Semite. To accuse any critic of Israeli policy as anti-Semitic, is to trivialize the holocaust and is an insult to the genuine suffering of the Jewish people.

2. Fighting a principled war is one thing, but targeting non combatants in that war is a war crime and awfully close to the definition of terrorism.

3. Jingoism is just as dangerous as any brand of fundamentalism. This applies to both sides.

4. I believe that some things are worth fighting for. Not at the cost of children.

5. Christopher Hitchens once said, "The sooner there is a Palestinian state with Jerusalem as it's capitol, the safer Israel will be." Improbable, but plausable.

That's all have to say about that.

THANK YOU!
To those that wished me a Happy Birthday, thank you so very much! As always I am humbled and grateful to warrant a birthday thought. As it goes, I spent all of it in bed with a bronchial infection which has proved pretty persistent.

I just wanted to pull a Greta Garbo and be left alone. It didn't turn out that way. Trust me, if ever you’re feeling lonely, just get sick and you’re guaranteed a whole lot of unwanted visitors. Like this one acquaintance who lacks a sensitivity chip.

I was half dead, yet she sat at my bedside for two solid hours talking about herself when all I wanted to do was sleep. To make it worse, she announced that she’s down in the dumps because she accidentally fell pregnant. Really, you accidentally fell pregnant? I asked her. She was adamant she had. I don't believe  her. It’s not like you go walking one day, trip and fallon dick.<... more »

I don't believe  her. It’s not like you go walking one day, trip and fall on dick.

In this day and age, I can hardly believe that there are any unwanted pregnancies to begin with. In fact, more of my friends are struggling to conceive rather than wishing they couldn’t. After hearing her cry me a river story, eventually I just nodded off and awoke to the sound of beautiful white noise.

So that’s my little birthday story. Happy Birthday to me, I’m a year older, definitely not wiser in the true sense of the word, but infinitely more experienced at knowing what not to do.

Have an awesome day, you hear. Mucho love.___

Why is it when someone dies, the second news article is always, 'Celebrity Twitter Reactions'?
Seriously, who the actual fuck cares what little Miss Hollywood thinks? Oh Maya was your personal hero? Is that why you're a superficial botoxed no talent coke head? Oh Maya inspired you? Do you even fucking know why the caged bird sings?

If need be, journalists should focus on the deceased and less on sensationalizing an already sad story that engenders enough schadenfreude on its own.

Another example is all the focus placed on the shooter and the celebrity #YesAllWomen tweets than the people he gunned down. Why do you think he emailed his manifesto to the media? Because he knew there's no press like yellow press and everyone would know his name.

There's a line of wannabe famous sociopaths waiting to take his place. The media will make sure of it and of course when it happens, we'll get to hear exactly how Solange reacted.


For the record, I do not know why the caged bird sings and you probably know who the shooter is without having to Google it. Sad.

Please Help
+Rory S needs your help. He is writing an ebook and needs a title. The book will be an advice book for men on how to score at being a stud muffin; defining friendzones, how to avoid them, what it takes to attract a woman, and that's just the foreword. So what should he name his book?

Thank you.

Hey +You
'Am I still relevant?' I ask myself
Or have I been moved to a dusty shelf
A shelf designated for trolls and spammers
Or Turkish elves and sharp banhammers
Or marriage proposals accompanied by goats
Where plus ones keep self esteems afloat
'Am I still relevant?' I care not a wee
As long as you know, you're still relevant to me

This poem is lame, it made sense at the time, promise. Have a happy Thursday!'

When link clicks happen to good people
I read the Reuters news headline, "Britain to import Russian gas under 2012 deal as tensions mount," I wonder what Merkel had to say about that?
...then I clicked my way through dozens of articles on exactly how much the UK (never mind the EU) is dependent on Russian gas imports
...then cross referenced that to how long it would take the US to meet the demands at the current Russian levels of supply which incidentally is 'years' and thought...in the immortal words of Rihanna, "Cameron, what now?"
...only to read that regardless of what may come, my country supports Russia. Isn't that just dandy?

In other words, eventually this faecal storm is going to affect us all. I can tell.

"The artist, Vera Donskaya-Khilko explained some of the controversial imagery contained within the painting. "Barack Obama and Vladimir Putin are in a significant fight," she described. Putin is positioned next to a gas mask and fuel container, referencing his country's natural resources, wearing a traditional bearskin hat and fox tails. Obama is painted in front of a small Statue of Liberty and a staff of dollar bills with liberty bells hanging below his waist.

According to Donskaya-Khilko, the multi-colored dragons represent the Chinese people."

Why do men choose to become gynecologists?
I'm not being sexist, I'm just wondering. Well I started wondering after I went for a pap smear (which was a bit like someone sticking an iced steel contraption into your penis' pee-hole, opening it as wide as it can go, then scraping the inside of your penis head. Yes, something like that) and it was absolutely fucking horrible. Why don't you just grate my cervix while you're at it, it could be smoother.

Dear @Mary Jane
You may try to defend Paula Deen by sugar coating it with fallacious equivalence, impressionistic bullshit and poppy rolled Southern parlance, "but we all call each other names in secret," you cry, but all it does is prove that you are part of the racist problem.

Fuck you very much for blocking and reporting anyone who disagrees with you. You do us a favour.

Yours truly.

Has activism given way to clicktivism and/or lurkivism?
Have we become those people who think that someone else will do it, we'll just post about and follow the events on social media networks and news channels? Are we, as a human collective still capable of changing the world or have we become too lazy?

Fuck I can't sleep. Wine and painkillers (without pain, don't judge) and still I'm wide fucking awake thinking about shit. I've become pseudo obsessed with what's happening regarding the surveillance scandal and annoyed at the sheer bellicose arrogance of some government officials. Plus, following the news, with all the subterfuge I no longer know the difference between fact presenters, conspiracy theorists and opinion makers. Fok.
