    I used to think this way exactly, to the T. Then my gf (future wife) moved in with 2 mini poodles. It's AMAZING what you can adapt to when you 'have' to. Those lil fuckers were hella smart, made GREAT house alarms, were pretty obedient and over time I got used to their high energy/psycho personalities.

    P.S. LOL @ fuzzy maraca

    That's one of my favorite Ron Swanson quotes ever.

    My prior boss had a white Pomeranian, he would bring him to work in body carrier on his scooter, kind of like a baby backpack. The dog had his own pair of goggles, and a hoodie. You'd hate 'em both.

    Pomeranians always make me think of Walter from the Big Lebowski.

    I feel like making a list of my own stupidity. Lets do it!

    • In a college exam, did every subject in the booklet not realising you had to pick the subject YOU had been taught about all year.
    • In a different college exam, forgot what subject it was for, picked one at random then wrote "Sorry forgot my stuff...ah fuck it.
    • Rejected a pair of shoes on the openly proclaimed basis that "the inside is smaller than the outside"
    • When he wasn't given a spoon for his soup said "My soup is broken"
    • Made a slideshow about plastic surgery and had two women on it as examples of plastic surgery too far, one white one black, gestured towards the black one and said "if you abuse plastic surgery you could end up like one of these monkey faced creatures" without looking at what he was gesturing at; hated for entire time there...unsurprisingly.
    • Walked into the same lampost twice in the same day
    • Tried to do up laces on shoes with neither velcro or laces.
    • Went skiing from a resort which required a train trip from the resort to the slope. Got the wrong train and the wrong skis, dashed across with wrong skis realised that they had neither the bright yellow strap like his own did and were a full 3 foot shorter than his own, promptly gave the skis to the guard and ran back for his own skis and to the right train, then realised the skis he had mistakenly picked up of course belonged to someone else and had to be ran back from the guard at the wrong train to where they had originally been picked up from.
    • Tried to merge into oncoming traffic while doing a driving lesson because "Oh I forgot you need to check BOTH sides"
    • Regularly sends invoices to the wrong customer, with company names that are not remotely similar.
    • Often gives people back the money they gave to pay when serving and only occasionally gets an honest customer who gives it back again.
    • Ate the reward for a successful quiz in his history class even though he didn't get a single answer right on his winning team because "I didn't realise it was for everyone".


    There are many more....
    'One of (Lucas) Cranach's masterpieces, discussed by (Joseph) Koerner, is in it's self-referentiality the perfect expression of left-hemisphere emptiness and a precursor of post-modernism. There is no longer anything to point to beyond, nothing Other, so it points pointlessly to itself.' - Iain McGilChrist

    Suppose a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?"
    "Suppose it didn't," said Pooh, after careful thought.
    Piglet was comforted by this.

    Pretty cool article about pushing language to match how we know the world actually works. Ultimately it's a neat thing to think about, but just the opening to a very deep rabbit hole.

    Instead of treating color words as adjectives, we should treat them as adverbs. I eat hurriedly, walk gracelessly, and I see the sky bluely!

    I think so. We've caught glimpses in our neighborhood late at night. At first I thought it was just a stray dog, but it's big and has a long snout. We live close to a freight rail line and that's how they probably travel to easily avoid detection. Plenty of wooded areas nearby where they could be staying. It might be something else though.
