Skunks tend to stay home in winter (but not hibernating). In the Chicago area, you have to watch out for skunks in February when they come out for mating season. Two months later, babies. The blizzard of 2011 (Jan 31-Feb 2) seemed to delay mating season a little bit that year.· bentley 1

I will never remember the difference between Paul Rudd and Paul Reiser.
O.o· Mr. Noodle
For the longest time, I thought Paul Rudd was the kid in the Buffy episode where they're possessed by the hyena spirit, but it turns out that was Eion Bailey https://vignette.wikia.nocookie.net/abconceuponatime6810/images/0/0c/MV5BMTA1NzYzODc1NTVeQTJeQWpwZ15BbWU4MDcwOTE5MDAy._V1_SY1000_CR0,0,665,1000_AL_.jpg/revision/latest?cb=20170205041936· bentley 1

I assumed that ultimately this would err on the side of Thursday (partly because I paid $5 to schedule it for Thursday), but no, they delivered it today. Which was fine, only because I no longer get things delivered if it's important that I receive them, and also, I no longer consider most deliverable things important. Lose-lose=win-win.· Meg Vmeg

"After walking out to Dolly Parton's 'Nine to Five,' the Massachusetts Senator launched into her progressive case for taking on the 'giant corporations and billionaires.' But she quickly broke from her standard stump speech, instead calling the crowd's attention to the workers who'd organized in the wake of the deadly Triangle Shirtwaist Factory Fire of 1911."· Meg Vmeg 1

I've never been able to figure out the purpose of this weird, flat, half-underground building, adjacent to the Ukrainian Catholic church a few blocks away.
It's got multiple, hardcore chimney-type structures. Ovens for communion wafers? Crematorium? Heated underground baptismal fonts? And the ziggurat-esque stairs at the front seem unnecessary. Why would you need to walk around on the roof so much?· Meg Vmeg 1
