Buzzfeed: Brillant!!! Thanks, Monka for this. lmao!!

UBC: ''Gustafsen Lake continues to serve an example of a situation where excessive police, military, and government control were deployed in what many believe should have been a peaceful and political matter.''
Such a tragedy. Signed petition.

Salon: I still think he's a blowhard.

My Universe: funny!!! What a cute kitty!

Enjoy your day, and your visit with your mom. You deserve a day off! Thanks, Lynn.

This applies to yesterday but I got to it so late I waited. My source is not the source and didn't have a source so no source, sorry; apparently it is circulating:

How To Tell If Your Religious Liberties Are Being Violated
Your Religious Liberties ARE Being Violated If:
You are not allowed to attend a religious service of your choice.
You are not allowed to legally marry the person you love.
You are being forced to use birth control even if it is against your religion.
You are not allowed to pray privately in your home or a public place.
You are not allowed to read, possess or purchase religious books and materials.
You are not allowed to teach the tenets of your faith to your children at home.
Your Religious Liberties are NOT Being Violated If:
Others are allowed to attend a religious service of their choice, or not at all.
Someone else is allowed to legally marry the person they love no matter what your religion says.
You are unable to prevent others from using birth control.
You are not allowed to force others to pray publicly.
Others are allowed access to books, movies and websites that you don't like.
Public schools are teaching science in science classes instead of your religion.

BuzzFeed - Yes, it's extremely funny - but I'm not sure the Brits should need an explanation when they have one of the best explanations ever done already - Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland, the caucus race.

UBC - Signed the petition, yes.

Salon - You would think, yes, but - you would be wrong.

Universe - Revenge is a dish best served cold.

Sorry to hear about the demise of your DVD-player. I don't know how expensive yours was, but the ones we have owned were terribly cheap - you almost get them free on a coupon nowadays - and some broke down quickly in the way you described, while others have been lasting for years. A cheap one is not worth repairing with costs higher than a new one, but the waste of all gets me mad sometimes.

Buzzfeed: This may have been intended for Brits, but this Dutchwoman got a great laugh out of it too.

UBC: It's really time to set the record straight; so I signed the petition of course. The article and video also gave us some insight into where Faux News has learned it's Republican tricks.

Salon: I'm sorry, but I haven't the time to watch 25 minutes of interview with Donald Trump, because I already know he's a disastrous choice for president and it would only be a waste of my time to have it reconfirmed. This man's ego is so inflated he couldn't even be bothered to read up on the facts, he'll make them up and create another universe where it is all about him and nobody else. It's been this way from the very start and will remain this way until the Donald finally has found a good enough excuse (in his eyes) to leave the race.

My Universe: One of my cats was fixated on rolls of hand towels, not toilet paper. Whenever you let one out of your sight for just a moment, he would masterfully manage to create the exact same effect.
