things that are making you happy - Page 2923

I'm happy to see Robert Downey Jr. is Hollywood's highest paid actor for the second year in a row. I can remember thinking more than once in the 90s that life was going to imitate art and he was going to go the same way as his character in Less Than Zero.

How good are their forecasts? I'm curious. That's very specific, I'd like to see some stats. You know Root Mean Squared Error and shit. Its one thing to say "the beginning of March" another to give you a day. I'd call bullshit on that pompous prick!

Due dates are useful from a medical perspective, because they can be used to create benchmarks for fetal development (i.e. "at approximately xx weeks, we should be seeing these features, and we need to monitor more closely if we don't"). However, they're basically useless from a "my baby will come on x/x/xx" perspective. Something like 95% of kids won't be born on their due date. In fact, only like 80% are born within 37-42 weeks of gestation, and there's a two-week window for what's considered "full term" with another couple weeks on each side for what's considered "early/late term."

So, basically, a due date is the day that's a best guess based on a few factors, but the baby almost certainly isn't coming that day. It's very much a ballpark estimate. If the doctor is saying 3/8/15, what they really mean is, "plan to have a new baby sometime between mid February and mid March."

that headline is confusing. i assumed it was a rich assed skier who had his own private helicopter, not a drone/toy.

also *WYHI?



I meant the camerawoman if no-homo, but you can also answer for the skier too if homo.

As of late I have been wearing suits with super tight fitting t-shirts so's to show off my physique. (I mean I am not wearing a dress shirt over the t-shirt would defeat the purpose.) But I am still wearing oxfords so's not to present too casual a look, you know?

Those are some tight pants. Would probably hit but would like a face shot to ensure she's not hideous and deformed.

My brother and his wife just bought me a pair of double monks, for no particular reason that I can discern. That was so kind of them! (I won't say what model because I don't want it to be about that. Suffice it to say that they are very nice.)

She is not hideous and deformed.

I got the first email of the year for the Carolina Bonsai Expo. It is one of the higlights of my year. (The Expo, that is).

Come on, what are they? More importantly, what color?
