I know - the current fizzy shit blizzard (CC DeVilletm) has captured the attention of many - so much so that we've missed some important world happenings:

Yesterday was not only national pi day but also:

  • National Learn About Butterflies Day
    • Some butterflies have ears on their wings
    • They taste with their feet
    • They cannot fly if it's under 55 degrees
    • Their first job at birth is assembling the two parts of it's own proboscis.  What did you do minutes after being born?  
    • Spoiler

  • National Potato Chip Day
    • I love pringles - I don't have pringles at the moment and this makes me sad
    • Mine never came with this...
    • Spoiler

Neither of which I remembered to celebrate.

Today is:

  • National Everything You Think is Wrong Day
    • Insert the snotty comment you know I'm thinking but will not type.  Make one up.
  • National Pears Helene Day
    • Apparently this is a thing people eat.  Pears, chocolate, and ice cream.  I've never had it but I approve of all of those things.

  • National Shoe the World Day
    • In celebration these are the shoes I'm wearing now..
    • Spoiler

Have some cuteness everyone...

What do you say we celebrate chip day today?  We don't have to follow their rules!  I say we reclaim today and have our own chip day like the rogues we are!

Pringles . . . yeah, no.

I'm busy celebrating the Ides of March, sorry.  Much fonder of that quote than I am of potato flakes in a can.

Can I just have the pear without the chocolate or the ice cream? I'll take some REDDI WHIP instead. And, No, I do not want homemade whipped cream. I want the stuff out of a can. It looks nicer, probably tastes the same, doesn't give me gas, and is 15 calories. No one has ever been able to tell me how many calories are in "homemade" whipped cream. 

Also, I'll take the pringles. It's the only kind of chips (other than tortilla chips) that I actually like. Plain or salt & vinegar please!

Pear Belle *Helene! hadn't thought of that in about 45 years - but it was a huge treat when I was a kid.....

(* Can't do accents on my keyboard - but if I remember correctly, it had an acute on the first e, and a grave on the second - and I don't know why I remember that :my_huh:)

Mmmm.... Dill pickle Pringles. Or Honey mustard. *wipes drool from face*

Spoiler alert--Spoiler contains a gross fact about butterflies. Choose wisely!

Spoiler

Re: butterflies. Did you know that there's a species of butterfly that drinks blood? (From open wounds in animals that are already dead.) I can't remember which species--it was on a PBS show. I really hope they never develop the ability to drink blood like a mosquito! I want butterflies to stay a symbol of lightness and beauty, not terrifying vampire butterflies!

Lastly, I'm a little jealous of your shoes, @HerNameIsBuffy:my_biggrin:

I hope I remembered right, or you're going to come find me, aren't you, @Maggie Mae! Oh dear. I know that Lays makes that flavor, but you only like Pringles. (Off to google....)

WHEW! I remembered right.

Now, I don't know where you can find them, @Maggie Mae, but at least I'm sure they exist!

I'm reminded of an old saying: "How can we miss you if you won't go away?" Just sayin'...

You don't provide me with entertaining memes. Just things to think about. I'm shallow. I need memes. :-P

Your blogs are interesting and thought provoking, but I'm a hard hitting news blog.  We fill different niches.

      This September 2019 article by Politico is a deep dive into the rat's nest of finances, real estate, and double-triple dealing going on at LU and with LU assets. There is also a 2017 article on the Miami flophouse owned by the Falwells.

      Also, Rolling Stone published June 2019 article on the Pool Boy saga.

      ETA: Also found a link to this 2018 article on the pool boy saga from Buzzfeed.

      Jokes aside, Anna is dressing her daughters in a very specific style, doesn't she? They used regular dresses in the past. Now, they are always pictured in homemade (?) patchwork dresses. It's a cute version of frumpers. In addition, they are always with dolls, girly crafts, babysitting etc. I know fundies reinforce sexism, but it's particulary evident with Anna. In the past, Mackwnzie and Michael were a team, now boys and girls are separated. 

      My guess is that after the Josh scandals, Anna decided (subconsciously, I assume) to not leave the cult but dive even deeper into her faith. She was already raised in a fundamentalist home and now that she’s gone through tough times in her adult life, she’s turning her home into an even more radical one. So her adherence to gender norms takes on a crazy level and her modesty standards are over the top. 

      Additionally, Anna has witnessed some of her siblings leaving their cult despite their super strict upbringing. Maybe she hopes to keep her own kids in the fold by being even stricter than her parents were? Whatever her reasoning might be, I feel so sorry for her children. 

      Regarding your other point: I cannot tell if the dresses Anna’s girls wear are home made or not. But if they are, why not use a little extra fabric and cover up those sinful collar bones? Why would they still need extra layers for modesty?
