I had a tenured professor in college that was so bad there were petitions circulating to have her fired -and it still didn't matter. I wish we had something like this.

That's a bummer. We still have tons of fruit ones here in the states. I guess you should just make an effort to live on an ice cream diet next time you visit the states. :P

There are whole teams that are female dominated like the suicide squad:

But it's like they're afraid of lead female characters on screen. I mean Marvel gave Agent Carter her own mini-series, but that's still not a full movie or series like they've dedicated to other characters. Black Widow still hasn't gotten her own movie and DC seems terrified to make a Wonder Woman show or film despite constant fan interest.

The weirdest part is that both companies go out of their way to hire a strong ratio of female comic book writers, but Hollywood won't do the same for movies and tv shows.

Personally, I think a Suicide Squad movie would be bad ass.

A good shelter, even no-kill ones, know that there are some animals that are too sick or that have too many behavioral problems to leave alive. The no-kill shelters I'm familiar with will not kill adoptable dogs just because they've been in the shelter for a set amount of time.

The best dog I ever had was in the pound for three months. If they didn't have a no-kill policy, he would have been put to sleep.

Responsible dog lovers know that the solution isn't to put more dogs in shelters, whether they have a no-kill policy or not. They know the real solution is to spay and neuter animals, adopt rather than buying and to do anything they can to help stop backyard breeders and puppy mills.

Yes, no-kill shelters and rescue groups aren't perfect, but they're a symptom of the problem in general, not a problem in themselves. If things were perfect, there wouldn't be a surplus of adoptable pets.

I can't agree more. I was bummed that the US' eggs have been different for quite some time, but at least you could get real ones from the UK imported. Now they changed the UK ones too. I hope they change back soon.

Zeon and I just went to a wolf sanctuary and someone asked about forest fires -they said that's how wolves survive fires. This is so cool to read about so soon after that.

"Coming soon to the Neatorama headquarters executive restroom: it's the Hello Kitty collectible electronic toilet seat!" It's about time. Alex has been promising he'd get rid of the coffee can toilet for years now.
