IAB seems to be coming up in the world. Just checked the queue this morning and found we have some French spam. That's a first. Some ads for a French preschool. Très bon! Sure beats the usual ads for Bangalore call girl services.

Anyone have a small child you'd like to raise to be fluent in French and English? (If you have a small child you want to raise to be a Bangalore call girl, I don't wanna hear about it.)

Gerry1of1 I'll never forget a Metro ride on my first visit to Paris. There was a class trip with what I believe were 5th or 6th graders on my car. And they were flirting back and forth among themselves in a way that you never see American kids at that age do. One of the prettier girls had a skirt on and walked up to the boys, whose eyes were transfixed on her. She then did a little pirouette, gave a knowing smirk, then a hair flick, and then sauntered back to her girlfriends, exulting in the fact that she had just slayed the class's boys. I'd never seen anything like it.

I am sorry to be the ghost at the feast.

It is nearly Christmas, and this is almost certainly going to be the last Christmas for one of my oldest remaining friends. During one of the uncontrollable wildfires last summer, living in smoke worse than the worst smog ever seen, she developed a debilitating cough. It has morphed into an undiagnosable illness, in which her immune system is compromised. 

The thing I want most for Christmas this year would have to be characterized as a miracle.

Failing that, what I want second most is for all the self-serving politicians using wildfire to advance their individual agendas to recognise and state out loud that preparing our wild lands to handle the coming fires requires a multi-pronged approach. That will cost money – Federal money, State money, County and Municipal money, but every dollar of it is our money, and every dollar spent will save multiple dollars in fire-fighting costs and loss of property – and life.

I hope that doesn't require a miracle, too.

Gerry1of1 "Ghost at the feast" has to be a literary allusion, I'm thinking. Lemme google... ah, here we go.

(idiomatic) A presence that mars one's enjoyment by causing guilt or reviving unwelcome memories.

Origin: After Banquo in Shakespeare's Macbeth (1606); Macbeth murders Banquo, whose ghost subsequently appears at a feast, unseen by all but Macbeth.

Semi's a former thespian; this makes perfect sense.

squrlz4ever I'm open to the idea of being an editor but sadly I'm in the military and will only be back on the weekends :/

Male 10,070
victor02 I dislike the comments on Reddit. Too many 20-year-olds fighting over who can make the dopiest quip and too little real thought. Half the time I read the comments over there, I'm thinking, "Oh, would you guys just shut up already? This isn't even close to funny. Can anyone here actually think?"

Regarding the editorships: In theory, it would be perfectly possible for someone to treat the job as a weekends-only commitment or even a one-day-a-week job: Sometimes I'll process 10 articles myself in one session over the course of three hours. If I spent five hours, I could schedule 14 articles for the next 7 days, 2 per day. Of course that means the person has to make a solid commitment to putting in those five hours every Saturday or Sunday or whenever.

My estimate of 6 to 7 hours a week for this work isn't a low estimate: It's accurate, based on years of experience doing this. How someone wants to divide up those 7 hours over the course of a week is up to him or her. (I'm not urging you to apply; just providing more information for you and whoever else might be reading this.)

Not Christmas related, but a damn fine web-comic:

PG rated? no nudity, no swearing (the author went back and edited it out, a vast improvement!) just scary and violent scenes now and then.
If you were reading before use 'Archives' to navigate the chapters. The story and art just keep getting better!

When one of the idiots (we had more than one) asked, hey, man, why did you take all the doughnuts, I said, "When the boss asks, does anyone have any questions, and some fucking moron says yes, I'll be the only one here with doughnuts and coffee left."

rukittenme It really is incredible. It has me wondering if today's super-rich have amassed as much or more wealth as any individuals in history. I imagine Gates' wealth eclipses that of many medieval kings and queens, at least in terms of liquid assets. (Meaning: If you count a king's wealth as every material item of the nation then no, but if you're counting only things a king could pick up, move, and sell, then yes.)

squrlz4ever I don’t think the potential for the “super rich” existed before the industrial revolution and markets.
Previously wealth was determined by purely physical assets.  Gates really owns nothing, his wealth is really all on paper in the form of stock valuation.  Enron taught us that is pretty volatile.

rukittenme I'm looking forward to that one myself. I think everybody's far too hard on the Transformers movies. It's about robots that turn into trucks you can expect Shakespeare lol
I'm glad they haven't turned it into a social justice cause

dm2754 Bumblebee is my favorite character anyway. I liked all the movies, yes they are things that turn into other things, don't go into it expecting a lot other than more things that can turn into more things. Autobots hate social justice warriors.....

melcervini so Christmas is supposed to be about Jesus tthe Christ. We all know Jesus was the ultimate pacifist. So let's commemorate that with associating it with mass murder.
You made Jesus cry.

dm2754   Christmas is the christian attempt to take over pagan winter holidays. Before the christians invaded Europe they had JC's birthday in autumn

Christmas is just a take over of Pagan winter festivals

semichisam01   good point. But pagans.... and I mean "non-christians" are taking it back with every secular song about Rudolf, and with every "happy holidays" instead of Merry Jesusmas.

Every year christian church attendance is lower and lower and 
I for one am sitting back eating popcorn watching that ship sink.

woodyville06   Saturnalia , which is now Christmas. It was easier
to convert people if they got to keep holidays so christians just
stole the holidays, gave it some new testament window dressing
and claimed holy inspiration.      The dark ages promptly follow

are you aware that you come off as a dick at most of the time.

dm2754 Your the first one on here to say that......I usually go out of my way to be polite on here to everyone because I like coming here and being a part of this site......if you are joking most of the time then great.....I just thought you might not know that you come off kinda asshole-ish alot. Just thought I would ask for fun, how is it that you know the man with the gun is gay? Or is that another one of your knee slappers as well?

rukittenme  are you familiar with comedian Margaret Cho. She has a line about " you can tell a man is gay because of his six-pack. You only get abs like that from sucking a lot of dick. It doesn't work for women tho. I've tried."

Or go with gaydar. 

Honestly it seems like you go out of your way to be rude to me. that usually happens when I'm having a conversation with someone else and you seem to be triggered on their behalf.

dm2754 Your spot on really. I'm not kidding. I do get triggered by some of the ways you answer or talk to people. What I should do is just mind my own fucking business and let those people your talking to reply to you or not. You know what, the new year is coming and I think I need to change a few things, let's start with from now on I will assume that you are actually a very sarcastic and funny guy....a truce if you will. Your last paragraph really made me stop and think............I don't really know you at all. I have projected a personality on you that maybe you don't actually deserve. So I guess I will see you in future threads......minding my own business of course............:)

This is a fun one but my favorite winter time game is Snowcraft!  It does require Flash though but it's worth it.  So much fun and the sounds are fantastic.

You would think, after all these years, I'd have this down cold. Nope. On the Sheppards Games site, it took me over 10 minutes and my score was -19,000-something. That's right: I scored a negative value. LOL!

Note to self for next year: It's all about the four-way cross pieces. If you focus on those, you can solve the puzzle much faster.

rukittenme I was surprised to find it as difficult as I did. Also, per my note to Faust, I noticed that at least two of the trees were different. So maybe we were working on the more difficult puzzle. Yeah, that's it. That's my story and  I'm sticking with it.

faustsshadow I think that's pretty good. I believe the trees and the lights are different on at least two of the links though, so some trees may be harder than others. But I think under four minutes is very good for any tree.
