My brother disappeared over the weekend.  I’d gone down to see him and my mom.  We were watching a movie at around 10:30pm, when he stood up and went to the kitchen.  He then presumably walked out.
I went to see where he was after about 20 minutes.  When I couldn’t find him, I assumed/hoped he’d gone out for a cigarette and a walk.

We went out to search for him and hour or so later, and phoned the police about 3 hours after that. We’ve done everything we can since then, including posting flyers and searching everywhere.  It’s been 36 hours now.  The temperature has been around 0° C both evenings and it’s been raining as of last night.

If you know anyone in south England - especially in Hants/Hampshire - I’d really appreciate if you could point them toward this post, ask them to take a quick glance at the picture and keep it in mind when travelling over the next few days.  We believe he’s been off his medication for around 5 days.  He’s not violent at all, nor a hazard to anyone but himself.  He will probably be confused, with some periods of lucidity.  If found, please immediately contact the Hampshire police on the non-emergency number 101, referencing case #200 from 16th February 2014.

Thank you.

It’s easier in America to buy a gun than French cheese by John Aberosis at America Blog


  Two people died over fifteen years from eating raw milk cheese.  Significantly more died over that period from guns, about 450,000 people (that includes suicides, but hey, we don’t let people intentionally kill themselves by eating French cheese, so why allow guns?).


This graphic– or a version of this graphic– has been floating around since last year or so but it’s new to me. I love cheese and hate the gun lobby, so how did I miss this? Between January 2011 (Tucson, AZ.,) through the summer (Aurora, CO.,) fall (Carson City, NV. and Seal Beach, CA.) through December 2012 (Newtown, CT.) and the myriad of gun deaths sprinkled throughout the year, I was probably overwhelmed by the amount of gun information circulating. Somehow the only thing that stuck were the assertions by the NRA that more armed “good guys” would solve the problem of armed “bad guys” shooting innocents. Comics have been more sophisticated than that line of thinking for decades. Hell, the cheese pictured is more sophisticated.

Anyways, I LOVED France’s dangerous cheeses.

Old white men conclude nothing could stop their ignorance of the Internet from harming journalism.

via Was Newspaper Decline Inevitable? Veterans Conclude That Yes, It Was | The Wrap Media


  "The idea that the metro dailies didn’t see it coming is way wrong. There’s no evidence that if they kept moving [to the Internet, there…] would have been a different outcome." -Former Time Inc. editor in chief John Huey


We’ll never know, will we? Metro dailies never moved to change because these old guys were in charge.

Is the grid plan that great? Sure, the maps of Paris up top look insane. How does anyone get anywhere, find anything or not die on those streets? 

The maps of Seattle and Tacoma (bottom) resemble just about any city in the US. Look at how efficient, safe and logical they must be.

Look at the French maps again. See where all those jagged roads cross? At almost every one of those hubs is a square of sorts. All of them are ringed by cafés, shops and restaurants. Each evening they’re filled with patrons, all on the sidewalk facing the street watching each other. Jazz bands, accordion players, crooners and, unfortunately, clowns all perform at the smaller intersections. The larger hubs host monuments, parks or simply cool-ass shit.

It’s ironic that the square isn’t really possible with a grid (and zoning, and fast food, and city planners, and TV, and…)

Here’s the thing about buying online ad space and setting it to auto-post alongside stories tagged “travel.”


This shit has got to stop.
