I agree with Warren. Hadfield is a hero of mine. As a scientist, it takes a lot of interest to get people interested in science. I tried to talk to high schoolers as an outreach project about microbiology, and a bunch of them kept asking whether or not it would be on the ACT's. We need to push curiosity, and Hadfield is great about this. Don't be flippant, Dan. Science is dying here in the USA, and if we need a Canadian singing astronaut to remind people that cool stuff is going on in space, then power to the Canadians.

Not that I'm not proud of Chicago, but if you look at the paper's algorithm used to assign rank, it's messed up. This ranking is completely useless.

I give two shits about hard candy. But here's a good rule to live by: NEVER mix bubble gum and chocolate. They absorb each others flavor slightly and ruin each other. NO. Total fail.

I always thought of this as a song to sing about giving dating a second chance after a break up. You rely on this other person so much, but then they hurt you or you just get hurt. So sometimes, you wish you could still live with someone and have them help and support you, but without the emotional connection that could lead to pain. But there's still this longing to meet someone and actually connect with them. It's the duality of a breakup. You never want to feel again, but you want to be in love again.

I'm really saddened by how slow things are going here?

Apr 24, 2013 AndyInChicago commented on How Much Do Lawmakers Really Care About America's 4.6 Million Longterm Unemployed?.
A) When and where was this?
B) Who is in charge of the chamber this was part of? Often, these are scheduled in a way meant to exclude people; was this an example of this phenomenon?
C) Who was the one lawmaker?

Does anyone really know why he needs it? He made it all the way there and he can't walk for a little bit?

"In all toil there is profit, but mere talk tends only to poverty. "

That dude is such a jerk. He fought against expanding gay rights during his time in the Obama administration and now is pretending to have been an advocate. He's bad news here.

What's really sad about Illinois politics is that, just like Chicago Fan says, it's more about personalities than legislation. If Madigan wants this done, it'll get done. If he wants to wait and hand this victory to his daughter, the governor, than it might not happen right now.
