Amazon Product Review Of The Day: Kleenex

From Prairie Girl.
A mother's struggle
December 8, 2013

I want to start this off by thanking Kleenex for selling these in 36-packs. I've put it on subscription, and if they want to start selling a 72-pack, sign me up.

I have three reasons for needing this much Kleenex, and their names are Liam, Samuel and Hank.

This is how it goes in this house...

First the Kleenex disappears. Then the toilet paper. Then they go for fabrics. And you don't want it to get there, unless you're ready to invest in a five gallon drum of Fabreeze.

This used to be a good Christian home. But it's not about moral judgment anymore. I'm way beyond that. I'm in survival mode.

If I don't supply absorbent paper products, I'm going to find my dish towels hidden in the basement, stiff as aluminum. The other day, I almost cut my hand on a sock.

I am sorry to speak so frankly, but with three teenage boys, a woman has got to be practical.


App Of The Day: Cat Selfies

From Incredible Things:

"Thank the internet gods, there’s now an app that helps enable cat selfies to occur. Cat Snaps, an app available for iPhone and Android users, grabs your cat’s attention by a red dot that shoots around the screen. When the kitty’s paw makes contact, a selfie is born."

Now your cat can take snaps like these.

News: One-Armed Man Arrested For Clapping In Belarus

In related news, a one-legged man has been fined for being too busy to participate in an ass-kicking contest.
In Belarus, One-Armed Man Arrested For Clapping

The sound of one hand clapping may be one of those proverbial mysteries, but a man was arrested and seriously punished in Minsk this week for allegedly doing it.

It's a little whiff of absurdity amid a wave of unrelentingly grim news from Belarus, where "Europe's last dictator" Alexander Lukashenko is digging in against growing public protests over a collapsing economy that's gutted living standards and left hundreds of thousands out of work since January in the little post-Soviet country of 10 million.

In order to evade tough regulations on public rallies, protesters eschew placards and shouted slogans, and merely clap their hands to display their anger at Mr. Lukashenko's policies.

Since the weekly flash mob protests began last month, more than 1,700 people have been arrested – 400 this week alone.

Most of them were fined heavily or jailed for up to 15 days on police court testimony that they were expressing a political opinion by clapping their hands in public.

But Konstantin Kaplin, an unemployed man from the western town of Grodno, says he was convicted this week of applauding in public and fined the equivalent of $200, despite overwhelming evidence of his innocence: He is officially registered as a disabled person and has only one arm.
