Climate Denial Crock of the Week

There are still sadly many people out there who have decided to believe the oil industry, big business, and our conservative government rather than the scientific community about global warming. It's real, it's happening, and we need to do something about it. Next time some idiot tells you that there's no proof of global warming, direct them to this guy's channel. He does an excellent job of debunking the myths out there and explaining the science. In this video he demonstrates that the concept of CO2 causing global warming is so simple, even a child can (and does) understand it.

Fuck Hate

Here's a fun video about gay marriage in the states. Let's hope they get it right soon and make it legal across the board. Thank goodness Canada is already over this hurdle.

E-mail Etiquette

Please go and check out the Oatmeal's cartoon If you do this in an E-mail I hate you. Funny stuff and soooo true.

My pet peeve is the one where people inappropriately hit "Reply All". Sometimes it's just annoying, like when a person replies just to say "Thanks" or "Okay" and their one-word reply goes out to everyone on the mailing list. So unnecessary. But I have also witnessed incidents where the person hits "Reply All" and proceeds to discuss something which really should have been kept private between the sender and the one recipient, causing awkwardness and embarrassment all around. An example is where a friend of mine who is president of an organization sent out a newsletter to their entire membership base, and then the treasurer hit "Reply All" and proceeded to chew out my friend about the budget... something which should have most certainly been confined to at least just the executive, not the 100 members on the newsletter list. Oy. Please people, think before you click that button.
