I like you but sometimes I don't

- snarks and kisses -
I live in Western Mass. I spend a lot of time online. I work a lot. (Photographer, retoucher, office manager.) Half-Jewish, raised by Buddhists. Probably older than you. I post news, politics, photography, art, books, pretty pictures, a little geeky pop culture and whatever's on my mind.

Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear? Can you remain unmoving until the right action arises by itself?

—Lao Tzu 

The stats: The U.S. prison population is now eight times what it was in 1970. And that increase continues despite a drop in crime rate from the mid-’90s on.

Watch John Oliver explain why.

Artist Kevin Champeny (previously featured here) just completed an awesome new, spectacularly detailed mosaic entitled School of Transcendence. This beautiful koi and the water through which it’s swimming are made of 25,000 hand cast resin fish. That’s a lot of tiny fish.

The finished piece measures 42” x 60” x 1.5”. The longer we look at it, the more we keep expecting this dazzling school of fish to suddenly burst apart as each tiny fish swims away.

I seriously cannot stand flower-beards. I don’t know why they irritate me so much, but they do.

Dresses are so nice they’re just tubes of fabric you can throw on with very little effort and when you wear one and people are like “oh wow you dressed up you look really nice” but it’s like
