The Daily Word in Salamanders, Man-Babies and Pseudo Polaroids
By Monica Schmitt [ Tue May 10 2016 12:33 PM ]
Ever wonder what America tastes like? Shitty beer. Literally.
Honesty shines a glaring light on your excuse for feeling funky. Try taking responsibility for your actions instead of blaming poor decision making on optical illusions. Realism FTW.
Self-cloning salamanders say no boys allowed.
For the hipsters out there struggling to keep up with “vintage” trends at Urban Outfitters, you'll find hope in this lil' piece of machinery. Show everyone just how good you are at pretending you were born in the 60s.
No exceptions once you join the cult. Consider this a warning to everyone who values freedom of expression.
I guess nothing's impossible as long as you try hard (or long) enough. Happy Birthday, baby.
Explain to me why this needs legalizing again?
Man-baby disqualified from presidential candidacy? If only.

Tel Aviv Graduate Visits Page 1
Press Release [ Mon May 9 2016 11:00 AM ]
Sharon Nir, graduate of Tel Aviv University in Israel, will be at Page 1 Books at 6:30pm on Thursday, May 12, to talk about and sign her memoir of moving to the United States, The Opposite of Comfortable.
The book is described as such: "Sharon Nir, a young mother and successful businesswoman, is faced with the most difficult decision of her life; should she abandon her career and her place of birth, Tel Aviv, to follow her husband, who has been offered a once in a lifetime opportunity—a surgical fellowship at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York City? In this heart-breaking and riveting memoir, Sharon shares her difficult but extraordinary journey of discovery: from her move to New York City, where she experiences loneliness and the shock of not having a career and the traumatic events of 9/11, to her return to Israel, the difficult relocation to Jerusalem and the discovery of a challenge her son has to face, through the baffling and grueling process of legal immigration in the United States, a journey that will force Sharon to question every certitude. What does it mean to lead a full life for a woman in the 21st century? The Opposite of Comfortable seeks to answer this difficult question while celebrating the strength and resilience of the female spirit."
Nir was born in Tel Aviv, Israel. She holds a Bachelor of Art degree in Language and Literature from Tel Aviv University, and an MBA in Marketing and International Management from Northeastern University, MA. As a system analyst and marketing manager in the high tech industry, Sharon developed the first Knowledge Management system in Israel and enjoyed a successful high-tech career when at the age of 29, she decided to follow her husband as his career took him to New York City. In 2009, the family immigrated to the United States. Sharon, her husband and two children reside in Albuquerque.
Page One Books is located at 5850 Eubank NE, Suite B-41, in Albuquerque's Mountain Run Shopping Center (southeast corner of Eubank and Juan Tabo). The Nir event is free and open to the public. For more information, please call 294-2026 or visit [link].

Mother's Day News: NM ranks 42 in the nation for "best states for working moms." If we just keep trying and really work at it, I bet we can get rated as the worst state ever one day. Hell, we're doing good so far.

Some dickhead shot a 17-year-old a month ago while he was walking to school after he took the kid's cell phone. Thankfully the victim is alive and recovering. Here's footage of his description given to police.
Well, if you thought racial profiling in airports was easing up, just ask this Ivy League economist about being pulled off a plane because of the dangerous looking math equations he was working on (spoiler alert: they had nothing to do with terror).
The Sandia Peak Tramway has added two cars to its stable in celebration of its 50-year anniversary. I'm still too wimpy to ride them, though.
There's a lot of debate around whether or not it's okay to kill an adult bear that has wandered into civilization. Apparently some people have never seen a bear attack and think they're all sweet and cuddly. I blame the teddy bear.
A historian believes he has discovered the secret of the man in the iron mask. Not only was it not Leonardo DiCaprio, the mask wasn't even iron.
The chemical that makes farts smell is leading to a new era in medical treatment. Well, there's my fart joke quota met for the day.
