@deepomega: Needless to say, Ms. Bresch isn't going to become a Dutch citizen and thereby expose herself to Dutch taxes on individuals. No siree. Last year, the rate on income over 55,991 euros was 52% (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Income_tax_in_the_Netherlands). TYRANNY!!!

Cryface from the bottom of paragraph 6 all the way down.

What a special kind of relief this post was.

Polly, you just explained SO MUCH to me.

to the letter writer: I am right there with you. softness is so hard and it can feel like you're ripping your chest open and all the cold wind is coming thru. but we deserve to be soft for ourselves <3

Polly's advice always comes at just the moment you need to hear it. not just for the letter writer, but for anyone reading. thank you xoxo

By Gef the Talking Mongoose on Put Your Phone Down

@Smitros : The big Pacific octopus at the Seattle aquarium has learned to recognize the pre-photo red-eye-reducing flash of an iPhone camera. When he sees it, he spreads out all his arms and turns bright red, which is octopus-speak for "fuuuuuck yooouuuu."

That is all.

NB : this may be related to the well-documented survival strategy in which smaller octopi turn red when hit with a flash of blue-filtered light (seriously, go look it up), but I prefer to think of it as the octopus going all Sean Penn on the paparazzi.
