All is right with the world once again. Do y'all think Gretchen got this done for us? Thank you, Gretchen!!!!



Frankly, this sort of comment ticks ME off because it disregards the seriousness of mental illness, from which this woman was clearly suffering. :/ From what I understand, she had burns over 60% of her body. That's some pretty heavy **** right there.

But to be in that state of mind that you would LIGHT YOURSELF ON FIRE?? She needs help. Serious help. I hope she can be eventually be okay and move on with her life, both physically and mentally.

I certainly don't want to sound merciless - she must be suffering horribly. And she is desperately need of psychological treatment.

I hate to be a wet blanket, but just because it is collapsible doesn't make it right. It is still offensive.

So, I was trying to take a self-portrait for a new FB profile pic. In every single one of them, I look just like my mother. Like, the spitting image of her at my age. It's so weird. No shade on my mom because I think she's beautiful, but I've never noticed the resemblance so strongly before. It's probably because I'm the age she is in most of my formative childhood years. It still freaks me out a little, though! I just don't feel like I look like myself anymore and it's weirding me out.

I may have posted this before, but I really like it, so it's worth a repeat:

Why I always thank the cashier, the store clerk, and the bus driverÖ

Primarily because my mother taught me to. Never gave it much more thought than that until I realized that a lot people donít do this.

Why not? Because itís their job? Because theyíre getting paid? Guys, a lot of the people who do good things for you are being paid to do it. If you were rescued by a fireman, you would thank him, right? Even though itís actually his job to rescue people? If a doctor helped you with a physical problem, youíd probably thank him, right? Even though youíre personally paying him to do exactly that?

But most service industry jobs, we are particularly ungrateful for, even though these are things that help us get through our day more smoothly. Say you ride the bus. You didnít have to walk to work today because a bus driver took you there. The bus didnít go there by itself. A human being drove it. The driver put up with early-morning traffic so you didnít have to. Isnít that worthy of a ďthanksĒ once in awhile?

Iíve had service jobs of various kinds in the past. I remember quite vividly how many people felt entitled to treat you like dirt. Not just failing to acknowledge a job well done, I mean actually abusing you for doing it. Especially in any sort of food service job, people get treated like the gum somebody scraped off their shoe. People who spend their own work day being unappreciated and abused will turn around and dish out the same treatment to the people who put together their value meal so they donít have to cook that night. Donít be that guy. People in the service industry are people and deserve to be treated with respect.

Most of all Iím sure anybodywho busts their hump all day doing a particular job would like to feel, at the end of the day, that it was appreciated. So tell the lady who bagged your groceries thanks, okay? She did that for you.
Yep, spring, I will have to keep that list handy at all time. I still can't remember some NCers real names on facebook.

I don't think that making them collapsible is an appropriate response to the trending topics at all. Reminds me of the response to that big brouhaha we're not supposed to talk about. The fact that the ownership of the site thinks it's OK to push topics like "are Black women fat on purpose" or whatever it was is the problem - not whether or not we have the option to hide it on our computer screens. They are sending a message about who they are and who their membership is by doing that.

Are Black Women Fat Because They Want to Be?

shhh you can't even mention not mentioning it.

he who must not be named.

They have tabs on it, like the death eaters, you mention it, they're summoned..

CL, thank's again for suggesting that video. It was very informative and disturbing.

After I watched that I became side tracked by looking up newer video's from a road in my area. Motorist from all over the world have been flocking to it since the 90's. It is known as "The Tail of the Dragon". The dragon has 318 curves in 11 miles, no houses, no intersecting roads, and crosses from NC into TN. People are crazy on It! Speeds in excess of 100 mph, and it has a 30mph (or lower) speed limit. It is most popular with sports cars and motorcycles but over the past few years GPS systems have been directing 18 wheelers onto the rd as a short cut. This road has numerous accidents already, and has since gotten worse. This is a pic of the "Tree of Shame". It's a memorial at the foot of the road for those who lost to the Dragon.

So, I was surprised, and elated, when I found this video. This is more my style. LOVE IT!!

I agree with ruralcurls and Amneris.
But then, nc.com is all about shutting everyone up these days however is most convenient to them.
