Incase you have not heard… and you want something trippy to show around the water-cooler…

I saw this story on goldfish that had been dumped into Lake Tahoe.  These goldfish started out small in a bowl in someone’s household who thought it would be a good idea to dump them in the lake (NOTE*** this is NOT a good idea.  Native species are in danger of being eliminated from the invasive non-natives taking the natives food or outright eating the natives.  Right now the biggest threat is the big mouth carp in Lake Tahoe.).

People did not think goldfish could last through the winters in the lake due to the fact that it gets so cold with the snow coming right down to the banks of the lake.

Apparently they were wrong from the looks of it…

Giant goldfish in Lake Tahoe… ARE YOU SERIOUS???

I find it (not surprising but…) very frustrating that i can not seem to find ONE actual poll that i could vote on the Ross Mirkarimi situation…

But i sure do find a lot of articles referring to these so called “polls”.  Where are these elusive polls exactly?  I want to know!  I have lived in San Francisco for approaching 2 decades and have voted in EVERY ELECTION not missing one (i feel or should i start to say felt that it was my civic privilege)  and have been in even almost every hard years hard print phone book until they pretty much stopped making them for residential.  I have been RIGHT HERE!  Where was my opportunity to give my vote?  I already did it once officially.  They dont seem to want to honor that one.  But when you say “the residents of San Francisco have answered the poll on Ross Mirkarimi’s future”, DONT.  Because that is not what i feel and it is not what the majority of people i have spoken to around the neighborhood feel (strangers… no… neighbors, but small talk in the checkout line type talk, not talk with my own group of friends who would most likely at the very least know how i feel about this and feel at least some points are valid.  These are the people in my little community of Bernal Heights mostly.).  I am really sick of these “credible news sources” taking a poll of probably 35 of the people in their own lunch room and say it is how the citizens of SF feel.  And then when i take time out to actually search out one of these polls so my voice could be heard with the rest, i can not find a single one!?!  INFURIATING!!

It makes me worried about the fate of this beautiful thing that i take advantage of practically every day called FREE SPEECH!  First it is the vote of the people to go, then their right to speak out about it!  We will be living like they did under Stalin soon at the rate we are going!!

BOOOO!!!

And you think it sucks here for us girls!…

As i have been trying to rack my brain all afternoon trying to think of what i wanted to share with you today… It has been painful and pretty unfruitful. Thank goodness for me, i prepare for days just like this, and i dig deep into the vault of most insane most incredible most coolest things and sometimes some really cute things too. (i am a sucker for cross species friendship… beware. you have been warned!)

Anyway, this is a video of a news story that came out a few years ago back in 2008, but just 4 years later, is not THAT long ago. I have a feeling not too much has changed.

So all you ladies in the house, unless you are from Russia of course!… Be thankful for where you have to exist because i sure would not want to be a single mom or professional woman in that country!!

Happy Saturday!
