You know those old married couples who never seem to stop arguing? They must have moments of civility in private, but in public they constantly snap at each other. Unnecessary hurtful jabs spring from decades worth of recriminations and grudges that will never die. A lack of decency has been a constant in their lives for so long that they can hardly remember how to communicate with each other in any other way. And they’re both old enough to know their partners will never leave.
Don’t ever put up with that crap. From anyone.
Loneliness sucks, but it will always be preferable to a life without respect from the one you love.

With the town seal positioned like that, I thought it was more of a “from behind” shot.
That’s… much better than my explanation.
I hope she doesn’t mind.
(This amuses every middle-school-aged Massachusetts boy at some point.)
Edit: I had never considered the design of the sign itself. It’s like the designer(s) half-heartedly tried to make it look like an open book before giving up and squaring off the bottom of the sign. And the lettering styles make no sense if there’s supposed to be a fold running down the spine.
Now that I’ve noticed the faux-book effect I’ll probably think of it whenever I see a town boundary sign.
"And now, a reading from the Book of People I’ve Boned."
The Irony of Despair -
The other parts of this article didn’t resonate with me as much as this paragraph, which gave me pause.
In her eloquent and affecting book “Stay: A History of Suicide and the Philosophies Against It,” Jennifer Michael Hecht presents two big counter-ideas that she hopes people contemplating potential suicides will keep in their heads. Her first is that, “Suicide is delayed homicide.” Suicides happen in clusters, with one person’s suicide influencing the other’s. If a parent commits suicide, his or her children are three times as likely to do so at some point in their lives. In the month after Marilyn Monroe’s overdose, there was a 12 percent increase in suicides across America. People in the act of committing suicide may feel isolated, but, in fact, they are deeply connected to those around. As Hecht put it, if you want your niece to make it through her dark nights, you have to make it through yours.

First Minecraft had zombies. Scary as hell the first few times you encounter them, but slow and more annoying than anything after a while.
Then it added baby zombies, a tougher mob that can run and attack much faster than their larger brethren. Baby zombies also have other benefits that make them harder to kill.
And now this frankly adorable addition. It was released in snapshot 13w49a this morning.
I saw this on reddit and had to make it a real thing: Chicken Jockeys. http://t.co/Kz90iacemA— Nathan Adams (@Dinnerbone)
So much for trying to kill mounted baby zombies by pushing them off a cliff. (Chickens don’t really fly, but they can slowly fall to the ground.)
I’m going to wall myself into my cave house and stare out the windows for a while.
