Today”S Quotation: George Eliot (1819-1880)


I’ve been a great deal happier … since I have given up thinking about what is easy and pleasant, and being discontented because I couldn’t have my own will. Our life is determined for us—and it makes the mind very free when we give up wishing, and only think of bearing what is laid upon us, and doing what is given us to do.

A few years later, he formed a food handling firm that prospered in the American Civil War.

When did the Dow reach its all-time high?More… Discuss

it Is Official: NO SUCH THING AS MERMAIDS, SAYS US GOVERNMENT


No Such Thing As Mermaids, Says US Government

In a move reminiscent of the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention‘s website post on preparing for a zombie apocalypse, the National Ocean Service, an office of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, has elected to publish a declaration regarding the existence—or, more specifically, the nonexistence—ofmermaids. Following a TV program on mermaids that many viewers may have mistaken for a documentary, employees at the agency found themselves fielding an unusual number of inquiries regarding the mythical creatures. The agency therefore elected to publicly address the issue on its website, declaring that there is no evidence that “aquatic humanoids” exist. More…Discuss
