    Those look like "today" feathers. Moreover, depending on how accurate that date is, they would be among the earliest ants (assuming that one is an ant).

    I am just perplexed by your overreaction to the alleged words of a 13 yr old boy. What I am saying is that a few epithets flung by a 13 yr old is not the end of the world. By the way, I'm fairly sure you joined in on previous threads regarding linguistic pet peeves, so I'm not sure at what age it becomes PC to point out an error, even in a lighthearted way. If one of you gents could educate the rest of us, maybe that would be helpful.

    Wow, kiddo. You really should take back that sense of humor for a store credit. The one you got is busted. Would you apply the same "pass" regarding language skills to the boys allegedly calling him names? Additionally, that "you can still read this" thing is easily derailed, or do you stears thta oyu loudw lilts fatteneriefdie words mpredisco of tinehorncely melding constanson nad slowve if they slederbem retho moncom burlyvacoa or scondites of more than a leballsy or two? Of course, the whole thing is more of a numbers game than anything. Those cutesy little "you can still read this!" emails/studies/chain letters add all sorts of restrictions. For instance, the first and last letter have to remain in the correct location (something I did not adhere to), and the words are usually no more than a few letters long. In cases where they are longer, crucial consonant pairings tend to remain the same as in the original word. Some even cheat by pairing vowels together to make the same sound as in the corrected word ("toatl" for "total"). It's akin to the "illusionists" that are really relying on statistics to wind up at a single outcome regardless of your "choices" during their act. If you control the environment and the rules, you can predict the outcome. If someone removes the restrictions (or forgets to mention them during their chastisement of you), the whole thing falls apart. :D

    If I were writing a formal letter, I would probably bother to proofread it. If I were pleading my case to people, I would bother to proofread it. If I were posting to an internet forum at 10:30 at night to a bunch of people who normally aren't bothered to read, I wouldn't bother to proofread it. This may be incredibly difficult to comprehend, but a formal letter is not the same as an internet post. I apologize formally for my offensive comment. I am sure the young man typically expresses himself in an astoundingly erudite fashion, and that I am entirely mistaken in placing so much emphasis on his words. Perhaps, since words are not that important, he will take that lesson to heart and realize that those people calling him a "black piece of shit" might have ingested too much Pepto Bismol and know not what they speak of, at which point he can ignore their words and forgive them, just as I know you can come to forgive me in time.

    Cry me a river or two. There were three other Hispanics I can think of at my HS. None of them regularly spoke Spanish (one of them even failed the class, sadly enough). I didn't have shoes that lit up. I didn't have shoes that fit most of the time, since my feet are wide and the only wide width shoes available were out of our price range at the time. I knew precisely what those cute guys I liked thought about me, and it wasn't anything nice. I still had friends at school because I made an effort to maintain those relationships, even though most of them had very little in common with me and I didn't really see them outside of school for that reason. In middle school it was along the same lines, except that it was not the nicest school and I was in the Gifted program. That marked me as warranting a few extra words of discouragement, and a lot of nasty comments about my parentage. The worst part was that "Gifted" at that school was essentially what should have passed for normal curricula at "the good old days" schools. I was in a few fights in school, and I certainly was never particularly popular; most of my friends were the fringe leftovers that ate lunch sitting in the trees, or walked in the rain instead of squealing and running from it like we'd melt. So I grew up and I started working to afford those wide sneakers. I hardly wear anything else at this point, because there's no need to. I learned that I really am more comfortable with myself and a good book or a familiar movie than faking enjoyment with a group of people, and I also learned that it isn't a bad way to live. I realized that those "popular" girls were popular for a reason (one graduated shortly before her due date, I believe), and that the rumors about so-and-so going down on what's-his-name were not really something she'd likely want on her resume. I also noticed that when we were out on the senior class trip and we all had to get into bathing suits to go canoeing and use the Slip-n-Slide, it was those of us that actually had some shape that were getting the twice-over, not the girls who were wearing padded bikinis, with towels around their waists so they could pretend they had hips and butts that were too sexy to be seen. Sometimes you get a more interesting reaction if you're the jeans-and-tee type who has a fantastic reveal in the bedroom or on the beach, rather than the one who lets everything hang out every single day. I also learned a lot about whether or not I was proud of my personal heritage --- proud enough to deal with a little ostracism. Was I going to calmly stand up for myself and correct misconceptions, or would I be like those others in my HS who pretended not to know anything about family traditions? Did I want to lie to folks and say I didn't speak any Spanish? Did I want to straighten my hair and keep out of the sun (I used to tan at the drop of a hat) and wear blue contacts, like some of my classmates were doing to look less "ethnic"? Or could I be myself and get through it, knowing it wasn't some after school special where everyone would come to realize what a beautiful, diverse, amazing swan I really was? I was still going to be the covered-up latina with latina hair and parents with accents and good grades and the narrow shoes and the ballerina sister and the awkward blink rate (I seriously have never blinked as much as other people; do not get in a staring contest with me) and the shoulder that can dislocate on demand and the birthday that made me a year younger than some in my class.

    He gets fired and suspended on a pretty regular basis. Keith Olbermann is a former sportscaster who decided he was actually a political commentator like everybody else, and for a while he was able to maintain a modest following by bellowing at George W. Bush to resign. That was a long time ago. These days he’s remembered, if he’s remembered at all, as the guy who made a point of alienating anybody and everybody who ever cut him a check. Fired twice from MSNBC. Fired twice from ESPN. Fired once from Current. Soon to part ways with GQ. Everything posted below is Wikileaks condensed version. The salacious versions are far more telling.

    Keith Olbermann is the poster child for unintended consequences. He isn't critiquing anything. He's making a projection. If the prediction were that Trump was going to do something right it would be interesting, as would a segment criticizing Obama, Hillary, or any Democrat policy. But there is no substance to back up his assertions - he's just saying things you already agreed with. He's a partisan hack hacking about things that have not happened yet. In short, he represents everything that is wrong with journalism today. But I do laugh every time I click this link, because he's such a miserable prick I know it must piss him off endlessly: www.keitholbermann.com

    Dude, I live in the midwest. Productivity might be up but in the past that has always led to cheaper prices and more jobs. Those jobs are now overseas.

    It is perfectly acceptable to dismiss an opinion based on a biased source. (Note that is not the same as dismissing evidence from a questionable source.)

    Yeah. Everything good that happens is Obama's doing but the bad things are Trump's even though Trump has not taken office yet. Bringing back jobs is a good start, but (and I've said this about 100 times) the GAO has consistently pointed out that our economy cannot sustain the level of debt we are projected to incur. The congressional budgets that Obama signed do indeed have debt falling, but that's only short term. It is rising again this year as projected, and without some serious structural changes the economy will collapse. That's not me talking - that's the government beancounter position. Of course the Democrats will blame Trump and the GOP will blame the Democrats but it's a bipartisan problem and either Trump will either deal with it, exacerbate it, or simply suffer it.

    Up until the mid-90's women shaved once in a while for the surprise factor. Now it's a standard grooming practice. It's just trendy I think. But maybe there were women like me saying the same thing when women started shaving their underarms and legs too. I guess some trends stick to culture.
