About this Entry
Recently in my chin rescue group there has been a lot of fuss about AB 2862, involving hysterical cries of "it will shut rescue groups down" and "people won't be able to breed anymore".

Firstly, I question whether or not this person has actually read the bill: http://info.sen.ca.gov/pub/bill/asm/ab_2851-2900/ab_2862_bill_20060619_amended_sen.html

Secondly, if they have read the bill, then wtf is the big deal anyways? The bill clearly states that this affects "Pet Stores" and the immediately goes on to define a pet store in Chapter 8(j) as any person or store that exchanges animals WITH THE INTENT OF PROFIT. It will NOT affect rescue organizations as they are not for profit.

Thirdly, I personally feel that there are no unreasonable guidelines in the bill and anyone who is not already doing these things is not a responsible breeder/shop owner and should not be in this business anyhow. It WILL affect puppy mills, irresponsible breeders, and any store that doesn't provide a decent space for their stock to live in. Unless there is something I am missing, this bill is a Good Thing.

For the first time in over 18 years, I opened my eyes this morning and I could see clearly. Not perfectly yet, I am still at about 85-90% I think. But well enough to function for now. Over the next two or three weeks I am told that my vision will continue to improve and become sharper as my eyes heal and the swelling goes down.

It is hard to describe what this feels like. On one hand, I could always see fine by using glasses or contacts, so it is not that big a deal really on that front. However, knowing that I won't need to bother with those any more is huge. I am very pleased with the results so far.

Too good not to share:

10 reasons Gay Marriage is wrong:

1. Being gay is not natural. And as you know Americans have always rejected unnatural things like eyeglasses, polyester, and air conditioning.

2. Gay marriage will encourage people to be gay, in the same way that hanging around tall people will make you tall.

3. Legalizing gay marriage will open the door to all kinds of crazy behavior. People may even wish to marry their pets because, as you know, a dog has legal standing and can sign a marriage contract.

4. Straight marriage has been around a long time and hasn't changed at all; women are still property, blacks still can't marry whites, and divorce is still illegal.

5. Straight marriage will be less meaningful if gay marriage were allowed. The sanctity of Britany Spears' 55-hour just-for-fun marriage would be destroyed.

6. Straight marriages are valid because they produce children. Gay couples, infertile couples, and old people shouldn't be allowed to marry because our orphanages aren't full yet, and the world needs more children.

7. Obviously gay parents will raise gay children, since straight parents only raise straight children.

8. Gay marriage is not supported by religion. In a theocracy like ours, the values of one religion are imposed on the entire country. That's why we have only one religion in America.

9. Children can never succeed without a male and a female role model at home. That's why we as a society expressly forbid single parents to raise children.

10. Gay marriage will change the foundation of society; we could never adapt to new social norms. Just like we haven't adapted to cars, the service-sector economy, or longer life spans.

Looks like you are going to have some new neighbors soon. Prepare to be invaded by internet nerds. Oh wait... you work at NASA and they are already there...

"Web search firm Google has formed a partnership with US space agency Nasa in an effort to harness new technology which could boost the space programme.
Google is to build a new office complex on the site of Nasa's research facility in California, close to its own headquarters in Silicon Valley.

The two companies will co-operate in a range of areas including IT solutions, data management and nanotechnology.

It would look to "bring entrepreneurs into the space programme", Nasa added.

A new frontier?

The two companies have signed a memorandum of understanding, although the financial terms of the joint venture were not disclosed.

Google is expanding rapidly and recently raised more than $4bn for new projects by selling shares in the company.

As part of the venture, Google will develop one million square feet of real estate at the Nasa Ames research centre.

The centre, built in 1939, has been at the heart of the US space program for many years, conducting research into the Apollo moon missions between 1963 and 1972.

Nasa recently unveiled plans to make another moon landing by 2020.

Examples of areas of potential collaboration include the development of new types of remote sensors and improving analysis of engineering problems.

"Google and Nasa share a common desire, to bring a universe of information to people around the world," said Eric Schmidt, Google's chairman and chief executive.

"Imagine having a wide selection of images from the Apollo space mission at your fingertips whenever you want it."

Scott Hubbard, director of Nasa Ames Center, claimed the partnership could provide a huge range of potential benefits to the space programme.

"While our joint efforts will benefit both organisations, the real winner will be the American public," he said."

I cannot fucking believe this. Not only that, I can't believe the self centered internet idiots who hate the very mention of somethingawful and everything associated with it or Richard, INCLUDING A CHARITY DRIVE, that they felt it necessary to report fraud on the account and have it seized. Seriously, what the FUCK is wrong with people?

Somethingawful is full of a lot of elitist jackasses and idiots, but they were donating $3500 an HOUR to the red cross. These are great people deep down, and this is how they are rewarded for trying to help those in need in the only way they can.
