Smooth should weigh in here. Pee, poo ok for the kitchen? I mean that opens up some options if true.
That quote is...unfortunate. I've seen some crazy things before but never a kitchen area being used as a bathroom. :D

I can't believe how much money I spent on my credit card in December.

I paid off my credit card on December 10th. All of it. Between then I've gotten two paychecks, so I thought I built up a bit of reserve.

Then came the new credit card statement for January 10th... WTF... 2300 or so. Yet I know I charged every penny of it. $20-30 a day for food, weekend spending like movie or eating out, shopping for groceries on the weekends, Amazon stuff that added up to several hundred, $300 for Lyft subscription plus another 100-150 for additional rides, I just didn't realize they added up to that much. Hah!

EDIT: Turns out Amazon stuff added up to over $1000. Hah. :)

EDIT: Just paid $700 for my two-teeth cap/crown. And that's with insurance paying 50%. I should have used my FSA to pay it, but I imagine I still have a way to go for pay for the rest of my expenses (I still have more than a few teeth to fix).

My personal heater died. I kinda knew it would as I can hear the fan motor going out.

I eventually found the place to write the seller on Amazon. With no questions, I got a note that one will be shipped out to be in 3 days. Hmmm... Okay.

In the meanwhile, I bought a better one. This one articulates (i.e. sweeps back and forth like a fan) and has 2 settings (medium/high). Same price.

So this happened about a mile and a half from home at our local supremarket - could see the helicopters all over the place and it made me redirect my Saturday errands away from it.
An hours-long standoff in Novato, California came to a peaceful end yesterday when police officers used a police robot to deliver a vape pen to the suspect, who had threatened to burn down a gas station, reports the Sacramento Bee and Marin Independent Journal (via Gizmodo).

100 years ago today...the Great Molasses Flood. Full story and some pics at the link.
Hollywood has made movies starring all manner of disasters, from rogue tornadoes and invading aliens to giant solar flares that fry the earth. But even the masters of make-believe haven’t conceived of anything as strange — or strangely devastating — as what happened that afternoon in January 1919.

One hundred years later, it’s a calamity that still seems as darkly comical as it is unimaginable: A 15-foot wave of molasses raced — yes, raced — through Boston’s North End. But what sounds like a B movie directed by Roger Corman is no joke: Twenty-one people died and dozens more were badly injured. Unsuspecting men, women, and children were smothered — asphyxiated, really — by a tsunami of viscous brown syrup, and when the bodies were finally recovered, the Suffolk County medical examiner said they looked “as though covered in heavy oil skins . . . eyes and ears, mouths and noses filled.”
