On Croatian Constitutional Court Upholds Mandatory Child Vaccination

This weekend I was chatting with some new friends, who all happened to be youngish mothers, and one mentioned filing "no-vax" paperwork or something at her kid's school. I was horrified, but also felt really awkward, as the only childless person in the group, and had no idea how / whether to say anything about it. (I kept my mouth shut.) On the one hand I think it's none of my business, but on the other, it's *everyone's* business. Especially other people with babies. What do you say in situations like that?

On So You Don't Want to Look Like Kim Jong-un

...the "Dear Leader" is a deadly alliance between the Macklemore, the mushroom cap, a weird butt, and that thing that boys did in middle school where they'd gel their hair into voluminous center-parted waves.
A weird butt!!! Hahaha that is a tragic truth, Jia you are amazing.

On A Butt Load Means 491 Liters

@cee Haha, that's excellent--not just once, but annually! (I wonder what the stats look like for cirrhosis of the liver among British poets?)

On A Butt Load Means 491 Liters

I have a vague memory (I spose I could look it up) of some (British) historic figure being "drowned in a butt of malmsey." That is a lot of wine!

On "PRODUCT DETAILS: This attachment for your bath will hold your beverage in a wine glass while you bathe."

HEY you can get one if you pledge $15 to this guy's kickstarter (I think?) https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/97033867/wave-hooks

There are also other (fancier!) ones in existence:
