Other Stuff...

I'm kind of a big guy -- I stand about six-two and weigh around two-forty. You know what? It has a way of being a pain in the ass. I'm built for fighting, but I hate that.I really do. And this goes beyond that scrap with that jackhole crackhead I found myself in last week. This is about everyone out there who's bigger than average and and doesn't use it against others, but damn if y'all don't find that used against you. Some little prick picks a fight with you, and you're the loser from the word go. If you don't fight back, you're a pussy; if you do, you're a bully. You can't win.

Stuff..

A little while ago, I asked who the only pitcher in major league history to win the decisive World Series game for two different teams was. The answer is John Lackey -- he did it for the Angels in '02 and the Red Sox last year.

I would have said so earlier, but stupid crap got in the way -- getting into a fight with some random crackhead and pissing me off for days being part of that stupid crap. But I'm okay, so eff him and his crack habit.

Til further on...

environmental news stories sunday

for those little pesky stories that seem to be missed on the corporate talking head shows but are in dire need of being heard. there are some things that will kill more of us than isis or ebola...combined.

science does matter...so does reality.

fukushima legacy... 25,000 who cannot go home again. a large swathe of land downwind of the four fukushima daiichi reactors smashed by a 15-metre tsunami in march 2011 is so contaminated by radioactivity that it will not be officially safe to return for more than 100 years - glasgow herald

not just california: droughts extend across americas. the golden state is hardly alone in drought when looking across the western hemisphere: a dry spell has killed cattle and wiped out crops in central america, parts of colombia have seen rioting over scarce water, and southern brazil is facing its worst dry spell in 50 years. - nbc news 

environmental disasters lurk in energy pipelines. michigan's increasing role in petroleum products transport doesn't just pose potential risk; it's already causing problems. - detroit free press

fracktivist residents see red, not black gold. in greater numbers by the month, residents across north orange county, california, are calling for an end to fracking, joining a growing chorus of californians demanding a stop to the controversial oil drilling practice. - orange county register

sydney octopuses heading south as tasmanian waters warm. a tasmanian researcher has found octopuses from sydney are reproducing in tasmanian waters. the common sydney octopus was thought to have migrated south because of rising ocean temperatures - australia abc news

susan g. komen partnership withs outrage. the susan g. komen foundation might want to rethink its par oil company stirtnership with oilfield services company baker hughes. on oct. 3., the foundation announced it would coat thousands of the company‚Äôs drill bits used for hydraulic fracturing with pink paint to help spread breast cancer awareness. - houston chronicle

frackers are dumping toxic waste into california's groundwater - grist

on november 4, santa barbara county voters get to decide on whether protecting our water resources, our agricultural land and our world famous wine country is more important that oil company plans on fracking. #yesonmeasurep
