Dear Abby's Thanksgiving Prayer: O heavenly Father: We thank thee for food and remember the hungry. We thank thee for health and remember the sick. We thank thee for friends and remember the friendless. We thank thee for freedom and remember the enslaved. May these remembrances stir us to service That thy gifts to us may be used for others. Amen.

(I’m waiting in line behind a woman speaking on her cellphone in another language. Ahead of her is a white man. After the woman hangs up, he speaks up.)
Man: “I didn’t want to say anything while you were on the phone, but you’re in America now. You need to speak…

I have number form synesthesia which is a mental map of numbers that “automatically and involuntarily appears” whenever I think of numbers. This is how my mental map looks, except the black background has white points of light on it like the night sky. I have the same thing with days of the week and dates in general. My mental calendar only has one right angle though, at 1900. Both the days of the week and the years on my mental calendar are upside down, like I am looking down at the list from above. The months of the year are more like a calendar with me looking at it from the side.

This is from a comic series called Fables and I have been reading some of the collected volumes lately. They are pretty good.

My dad and I have been driving for a while, and dad is getting hungry, so we stop at a branch of a well known take away chain. My dad goes up to the cashier to order.
Dad: Hi, could I please get a toasted bacon and egg sandwich?
Cashier: Sure, would you like extra…
Your dad acted rudely. He knows the word “no" and can use it.

"Being cranky about a Dan Brown book not being high literature is like yelling at a cupcake for not being a salad; it’s really missing the point." I think is a very well-put refutation of people who sneer at popular things because they aren’t deep or high-brow enough. I haven’t read either Scalzi or Brown yet (though there is a lot more Scalzi on my ToBeRead list), but I did enjoy the Da Vinci Code in the theater.

There are six monarchs in Europe that are directly descended from either Queen Victoria or King Christian IX (of Denmark) or both. “In summation, the monarchs of Norway, Denmark and the United Kingdom as well as the consorts of the United Kingdom and Spain are descended from both Queen Victoria and King Christian IX. The kings of Spain and Sweden are descended from Queen Victoria and not King Christian IX. The King of Belgium is descended from King Christian IX and not Queen Victoria”
However there is one couple that bests both of them: “The descendants of Johan William Friso of Nassau-Dietz, Prince of Orange and his wife Landgravine Marie Louise of Hesse-Kassel currently occupy all the hereditary thrones of Europe, as well as some former ones.” They were born in the 1680s and only had two children. The first of their descendants to rule didn’t take the throne until 1815.

Whoa, I had no idea this was in development. I mean, isn’t every YA series in development, really? But there is a cast and an article for this one. I read book one of the series but it was hard to stick with it due to the violence and bleakness. Book two was almost as bleak and more confusing. But I did like them enough to keep reading the series, just not immediately. There is one more book in the timeline and then a prequel.

Many people complete the challenge, which means they read 80-90 books in three months! I do not read that fast, but I still enjoy the challenge. I usually get between 300 and 400 points and read around 20 books. The best I did was 540 points last summer out of a possible 1080. This summer there are 71 tasks and 1350 points possible.

“If anybody invites you to an angry place, decline the invitation. Have you ever laughed and waved at someone giving you the middle finger? It drives them crazy.”
Good advice for the little daily annoyances. My main one is people who stand in the way of foot traffic with no regard for others.

Antipodes are places on the Earth that are directly opposite each other, or where you would actually come out if you dug straight down through the center of the Earth. “All together, less than 4% of land is antipodal to land.”

Cool Story Bro of the Day: Minnesota Man’s Argument Against Marriage Equality
Today’s weird argument against marriage equality is brought to you by Minnesota resident Mike Frey, who seems to be assured that (straight) women’s private parts have the magical ability to block HIV with a cellular tissue-based “barrier.” Bathing in ignorance before the State House’s legislative committee, Frey further goes on to single out sodomy as the cause of AIDS and warns of other possible diseases that could be spread by gay people.
