F106 4CH Infared RC Helicopter NEW with Gyro Radio Remote Control Mini Size (Yellow) — Just go read the copy on this one. Preferably aloud as a dramatic presentation. (Via [info]lillypond a/k/a my sister.)

Do you really want to know what your doc is writing about you?

Restoration Projects Bring Coho Back To Johnson Creek — Nuevo Rancho Lake isn't far from Johnson Creek.

Mysterious 'space ball' crashes down in Namibia grasslands

Rare Galaxy from 'Dawn of Time' Photographed — That just seems so cool.

1,100-year-old Mayan ruins found in North Georgia — Mayans? In Georgia? Really? (Snurched from @bethmeacham.)

Baboons kidnap and raise feral dogs as pets — Odd but cool. (Via [info]danjite.)

Bachmann’s overlaps — Heh. (Via Scrivener's Error.)

Ron Paul gets testy, walks out over talk of racist newsletters — So Ron Paul was a nasty racist when it paid well to scare the rubes and drum up donations, but no longer now that it's embarrassing. Remember, kids, character counts. I know some political party told me that once, very loudly, but maybe it only applies to liberal-progressives. Also, Ta-Nehisi Coates with more on this.

For Gingrich in Power, Pragmatism, Not Purity — A profile of the Newt which may be of interest to you political junkies. (Thanks to my Dad.)

So… You've Been Indefintely Detained — Ah, democracy. We used to live in one, I think.

Every time people talk about Ron Paul like a viable alternative to various other conservative insanity, it makes me grind my teeth. I live in Texas, I've lived in Texas for 31 years and I know Ron Paul is a major asshat in some serious ways, like his disrespect of women and the LGBT community. He's a shape shifter like all the rest of them.

The last time I went to the doctor, the nurse pointed out a little squib on my (computerized) record to me that she said warned I was a difficult patient. Because I do ask questions and do not always agree blindly with what my doctors tell me. Also because I fussily insist on knowing how much a procedure will cost me out of pocket before I have it done so that I know whether I can afford it or not.

This is why I'm looking to get out of Group Health, but finding new individual health insurance I can afford is not easy, either, and I'm not sure it would help with the problem, anyway.

I'm so grateful for my (alas, now retired) gastroenterologist, who not only saved my life but encouraged my questions.
