Good for Michelle Obama.

A new blog of encouragement, support, and positive thinking for those who live with chronic pain.
There will no doubt be retaliations on some scale, but let us rejoice in the fact that we have made significant progress tonight and that this brings closure to so many families. And may we NEVER know who made the kill shot so that the soldier does not become a target himself.
And, by the way, Donald Trump, while you were bitching about birth certificates, Obama got shit DONE. Take that, Mr. Toupee.
Prince Charles knows how to have fun? He has a personality? Gasp!
This is an awesome video. Will make you smile.

Scientists observed the electrical activity of brains in rats forced to stay up longer than usual. Problem-solving brain regions fell into a kind of "local sleep"窶"a condition likely in sleep-deprived humans too, the study authors say.
Surprisingly, when sections of the rats' brains entered these sleeplike states, "you couldn't tell that [the rats] are in any way in a different state of wakefulness," said study co-author Giulio Tononi, a neuroscientist at the University of Wisconsin, Madison.
Despite these periods of local sleep, overall brain activity窶"and the rats窶 behaviors窶"suggested the animals were fully awake.
This phenomenon of local sleep is "not just an interesting observation of unknown significance," Tononi said. It "actually affects behavior窶"you make a mistake."
For example, when the scientists had the rats perform a challenging task窶"using their paws to reach sugar pellets窶"the sleep-deprived animals had trouble completing it.
From the page: I think about my cat being 14 and totally love these images. Kittens and colts are cute, but there is wisdom and strength and endurance in the images of senior animals. I have had my cat, Kali, since I was 17, so all my adult life. I don't know what I will do once she is gone. Hopefully I won't find out for several more years.
This takes me back.
Good indie band I just found out about.
From the page: "A prisoner's chance of parole depends on when the judge hearing the case last took a break, say researchers who have studied decisions in Israeli courts. As judges tire and get hungry, they slip towards the easy option of denying parole, say the researchers.
The bias could apply in any situation in which people make sequential decisions, such as doctor's consultations, university admissions or grant-review panels."
"What's so stunning about this find is the wave's coffee-colored walls break from top to bottom, similar to the hollow powerful waves that peel over coral reefs. But the riverbank refraction of the primary wave sends rebound wedges perpendicular across the river, carving the secondary wave into a line of spinning peaks with cookie-cutter perfection. These mirror-reflection spinners appear choreographed, with all the symmetry of a Rockettes' leg kick, the likes of which has never be found in the ocean...at least not yet. "
These are the worst lyrics I have ever heard. Except for that new Keri Hilton song. And any song that has only four lines that just repeat over and over and over again.
This photoshop pic rocks- lmao. The others rock hard as well.
