Just wanted to say thanks for the laundry day account tweet. Hopefully one day you get to use it for good news lol :( but I appreciate it being there to keep us informed.
You’re welcome. It took me a while to be able to send it, I wasn’t even sure if I should from that account. But then I thought about the whole point of it being “big news” for people that might not have chat groups or friends that would let them know when something huge happens when they’re offline.
The most jarring moment of my childhood was the morning of September 11th. I was in kindergarten, and I distinctly remember when someone came up to me and told me the big news. he said, “there once was a genie with a ten foot weenie and he showed it to the girl next door. She thought it was a snake so she hit it with a rake and now it’s five foot four,” and I’ve never been the same since.

RICK RIORDAN IS COMING BACK TO THE PERCY JACKSON WORLD MAY 2016
Rick’s sunmary: “How do you punish an immortal God? By making him human. After angering Zeus, Apollo is cast down and lands in NYC as a regular teenage boy. Without his godly powers the deity must learn to survive in the modern world until he regains his powers. But he has enemies who would love to destory him. He can think of only one place to go for help: Camp Half Blood
HE SAYS WE WILL REVISIT EVERYONE WE CARE ABOUT. WE WILL SEE WHAT IS HAPPENING WITH ALL OF THEM.
First person POV from Apollo. Every chapter title is a haiku! And the first preview for the book is coming out in April… When he releases a crossover book with the Kane Chronicles and PJO!
Today, China abandoned its 35 year-old one-child policy.
Based on the now debunked threat of overpopulation that was popularized by Stanford University scholar Paul Ehrlich, the communist government subjected the Chinese people to forced sterilizations and abortions. Many new-born babies were either killed or left to die.
Today, the Chinese population suffers from a dangerous gender imbalance that favors boys over girls at a ratio of 117:100, and a demographic implosion that threatens future economic growth and prosperity.
The one-child policy is a reminder of what happens when governments are allowed to interfere in deeply personal decisions of individual citizens and their families.
David Tennant is returning as the Tenth Doctor alongside Catherine Tate as his companion Donna Noble in three Doctor Who Audio Dramas!
David Tennant portrayed the Doctor on screen from 2005 until 1 January 2010, returning to play alongside Matt Smith and John Hurt in the 50th Anniversary special The Day of the Doctor in 2013. Catherine Tate made her debut as Donna in December 2006, and after a series and two festive specials she made her last appearance alongside David on 1 January 2010. Their on-screen partnership is generally regarded as one of the great high-points of the enduring science fiction phenomenon.
In Doctor Who – The Tenth Doctor Adventures: Time Reaver by Jenny T Colgan the Doctor and Donna arrive on Calibris - ‘An entirely mechanical planet. Catch, hitch, fuel, fix, buy, pretty much any kind of transportation in existence.’ It’s also a world full of scoundrels, where a deadly black market has opened up in a device known only as the Time Reaver.
Behold the awesomeness that is Darius, the World’s Largest Rabbit. He’s a Continental Giant rabbit who measures 4 feet 4 inches (1.3m) long and weighs 49 lbs (22.2kg). He won his title back in 2010, but he’s about to be dethroned by his own son. Jeff the giant bunny still has roughly 6 months of growing left to do, but already measures 3 feet 8 inches (1.1m) long.
Both bunnies have very laid-back and friendly temperaments and live with Annette Edwards in her back garden in Bromsgrove, Worcestershire, England. In addition to each eating large dog-sized bowls of special rabbit food each day, the buns make their way through one bay of per week and about 2,000 carrots and 700 apples per year. They’re both so big that, instead of rabbit hutches, Darius and Jeff sleep in German Shepherd-sized dog crates at night.
Edwards is certain that Jeff is soon going to exceed his papa in size:
“As soon as I think he’s made it, he’ll be measured by his vet and then Guinness will certify that he is the biggest rabbit in the world. Even though they’re so big, they are very low upkeep. They really do look after themselves most of the time. They run free in the garden during the day and at night go to sleep in their cosy crates. They never make a mess and actually would be great house rabbits. Although when they start to moult at the end of the summer, they need a good daily brush. And being the world’s biggest rabbit, and his son, they’ve got a giant appetite to match. But it’s actually good for them to be eating hay all day long – to keep their teeth and digestive system healthy.”
