I'll Just Toss It Away Like Yesterday's Jam


Sometimes, I just want to follow Moss's lead here.  Yesterday was one of those days.  Jennifer Livingston, a news anchor for WKBT in Wisconsin, took to the airwaves Tuesday to address a bully.  You see, Jennifer is obese. Thankfully, one of her faithful viewers some guy who randomly turned on her show for a few minutes decided to stick his nose where it didn't belong to espouse his concerns about her weight and sent her an email.  Instead of simply replying to his letter, she was given a segment on the news to respond.  And what an eloquent response she gave.  (Pajiba)

That video was pretty fantastic, no?  So what had me so upset?  The comment section of that article.  Whether obesity is a problem or not, no one has the right to shame or bully someone about their weight.  Did you know that October is National Bullying Prevention Month?  While this article is aimed at parents, I think that some of its advice is applicable to everyone - even anonymous internet denizens.  (Washington Post)

Ok, time for a deep breath.  I'm just going to stare at this adorable pig until I feel better.  (Daily Squee)

That's better.  Onwards!  Do you like beer so much you've thought about bathing in it?  Turns out that's not such a crazy idea.  (The Kitchn)

This list of the 15 professions that drink the most coffee just proves that science is fueled by both a thirst for knowledge and lots and lots of caffeine.  (io9)

Best Easter decoration ever or best Easter decoration ever?  (Nerd Approved)

Here's an excellent Christmas gift/"The Hobbit" opening night costume idea!  (ThinkGeek)

Tom and Jill Banwell make absolutely incredible masks (and other accessories) out of leather.  I covet this Wildcat mask.  (Etsy)

Some songs never get old.  Like this one.  Happy Hump Day, y'all!
