Reddit bans nude images posted without consent.

So basically *all* nude images?

Not even remotely. We live in an age of exhibitionism.

Copy-pasting an apology, too... Fucking hell.

For the record, that's me having a little fun at their expense. If they did copy-and-paste it, they did change some words.

How have you been able to get him used to the boots, Blue? I've been trying to get my doggies to wear them, and the second I put them on they just go into spazmo-paw frenzy until they can get them off again.

Explaining to them that "Now your paws will freeze and you'll whine at me that you're too cold when we need to go outside!" doesn't seem to help either.

It's all about the Gunnar-man's "unstoppable demeanor" I mentioned, as it took no effort on my part at all. I put the boots on him and while at first he stepped around oddly by carefully placing each foot, he quickly recognized that he could still get around and that was that. He's just not the type to let something stand in his way if he can help it, so they'd either have to be causing him severe discomfort or be chained to an anchor to stop him from going out on his adventure.

We're quite lucky, as he's a *very* easy dog to get along with. If it wasn't for his desire to mark the stove, he'd be about perfect.

out of idle curiosity, what's a largish breed that's basically a lazy bum and is otherwise low maintenace (low shedding, no slobbering, etc).

You sound like a possible candidate for a rescue Greyhound. They are apparently quite content to be couch potatoes after all the athletics.

I'm not sure if the Boxer recommendation was a joke, but to my experience they are pretty crazy.

They're energetic within their own space. They're family guard dogs so they're gentle with children and other pets. But they're a large breed that doesn't shed (well not like a long hair dog sheds) or slobber and they spend most of the day loafing about.

Here are some videos, showing their restrained energy:

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=d5qlBn-nNIc
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZQVkYaaPO6g

I've got no personal experience from which to draw, I'm just going by what's said about the breed. A lot of what you describe sounds right, I'm just not sure that it's "basically a lazy bum."

Boxers are a bright, energetic and playful breed and tend to be very good with children.[4] They are patient and spirited with children but also protective, making them a popular choice for families.[4] They are active, strong dogs and require adequate exercise to prevent boredom-associated behaviors such as chewing, digging, or licking. Boxers have earned a slight reputation of being "headstrong," which can be related to inappropriate obedience training.

Clearly, the rational thing to do is leave this amazingness and return to the snowy hell that is NYC. Just signed my offer letter, I move back in March or April! Please, snow, be done by then!

Congrats. No worries. April in New York is beautiful everywhere but Citi Field.

I've been spending a lot of time of late with a dalmatian. It's one of the friendliest, sweetest dogs I've ever met, which goes against everything I know about the breed. They're so unmistakeable, too.

My impression of Dalmatians is that they are friendly and sweet, but not necessarily super smart, but that the perception of their lack of intelligence may stem how many of them turn out to have hearing loss.

Interesting, I would think the people who currently qualify to go on one way trip to Mars lack the survival instinct to return, thus should be disqualified as they do not represent the kind of individuals that are needed long-term to survive, discover, progress and colonize the planet. My logic sounds backwards but give it some more thought. Essentially, the candidates are willing to commit a 'glorious suicide', but that's not what humanity needs for a sustainable future. It would be the equivalent of testing mice in a maze and passing only those who are willing to jump over a ledge to a lower level (unable to ever return) in order to get the cheese. Sure the mouse got the cheese but in the end it died from lack of foresight -- not exactly a genetic trait that desirable to pass on. The best mouse would be one that is willing to get back and store the cheese for later.

So the people going on a suicide mission aren't suitable because they lack long term survival instinct?

Your logic sounds backwards because it is. Your weather trolling is much more solid.

Someone call Tom Hall and let him know about this. The sequel must be made.

Is Tom ok? Last I heard he had a heart attack. Would love to see him make Ananchronox 2.

Actually it was a stroke, but as far as I know he's made a complete recovery.

With California facing one of the most severe droughts on record, Governor Brown declared a drought State of Emergency in January and directed state officials to take all necessary actions to prepare for water shortages. The state has continued to lead the way to make sure California is able to cope with an unprecedented drought.

Sorry, I'm all about the sniping.

I don't recall having many issues with Pete when I solo'd him, but it's possible he gets disproportionately tougher if you tackle him with a full team.

Well this was super ultimate baddassery mode, or whatever it was, so it was not trivial to say the least.

I just don't understand why I should care, or anyone for that matter. Can someone enlighten me? Is there something wrong with me that means I just don't get it? OK maybe that last one is a given....

Transgender octogenarians react to Bakelite radios.

Agreed. Who effing cares? Jesus, it's bad enough watching other people play games, but now you're not even doing that but just watching them for a reaction? Pathetic.

Elders react to teens react.
