So my single mom friend whom I didn’t know was single has been featured in one of our national newspapers again. The paper reused a picture of her and a friend to illustrate a story on OKCupid’s manipulation of matches, giving the impression that they’re lesbian lovers who were tricked into it.

I realize this is a serious matter, but neither of us can help laughing at it.

Great writing, after a week that left many of us embarrassed and angry at the attitudes of our fellow “sports fans”.

Notes from the Field: Late Vitamin K Deficiency Bleeding in Infants Whose Parents Declined Vitamin K Prophylaxis — Tennessee, 2013

rototudor:

This whole anti-vaccine thing is not a question of “personal choice”. It’s one of child endangerment, and should only be discussed in that context. If you’re not willing to let your kid get his or her shots, you’re not fit to be a parent.

This awesome arboreal dwelling is the Living the High Life Tree House created by Blue Forest, a British tree house design and construction firm. It’s a luxury family-sized complex featuring two separate tree houses, one for kids and one for their parents. The elevated dwellings are connected by a network of rope bridges which also lead to an adventure play area and an assault course, the latter of which is also accessible via an 80-yard zip line.

It may look rustic, but this is a top-of-the-line tree house. The kids’ house features three medieval towers, and inside one of them a concealed hatch in the upper floor leads to a secret game room containing a plasma TV and video game console. Meanwhile the grown-ups’ treehouse features a conical thatched roof and interior walls made of hand-split oak shingles and cedar tongue-and-groove boards. Inside there’s a kitchen (complete with plenty of wine storage), bathroom, and a large open living area for treetop entertaining. The complex also features accommodations for guests of the family.

Head over to the Blue Forest website to check out more of their amazing custom-built tree houses.

I would live in this forever.

:O

I…how…this is. What. Give it.

My fear of heights SHOULD mean that I would not want to live here, but no. Gimme.

There are times when I wish we were all sitting around a pub or someone’s apartment. Largely so I could make smart-assed comments that even I don’t dare make here for fear they could be taken the wrong way.
