The article I read said "radioactivity is quickly diluted in the ocean, and government officials said the dump should not affect the safety of seafood in the area." Really? Really? I don't know about the rest of you all, but I am not going to be in any big hurry to eat seafood from anywhere near Japan. The "less" radioactive water is still 500 times the legal limit for radiation. How quickly could it possibly dilute so that it is harmless? I didn't get a sense from the article that anyone (besides me) is alarmed by this. Where are all the save-the-ocean people and Greenpeace and Angelina Jolie? I want the Japanese people to be safe and get all the help they need, but this just does not seem like a very good plan.
|Narcissists like attention. |
is their cryptonite.
Onto less toxic news (get it - bahahahaha) but nevertheless troubling; not only are beautiful and rich people better than us, as we discussed a few days ago, but apparently so are narcissistic people. In Do Narcissists Know They Are Narcissists the author basically tells us that narcissists are the way they are because they think they are better than the rest of us. Further, they know other people think they are arrogant jerks, but don't care, because they still think they are awesome and the rest of us are just jealous. Also, they know the longer you know them, the less you will like them. Rather than change, however, they just move on to the next relationship.
My take away here is that while beautiful and rich people may fall upon misfortune and be relegated to the lowly levels the rest of us inhabit, the narcissist is so delusional that nothing can make him unhappy or shake his confidence. So, for those of us with one of these charmers in our life, we are dealing with someone who has a terminal case of Pain In The Ass. Awesome.
In a completely unrelated sharing topic for which I have no segue, I must tell you what happened at the market the other day (for what must be the 100th time). You already know that I often have trouble at the market when I go during the day, and this was no exception. To pay for my stuff, I swipe my ATM card ( I was gonna say MAC card, but I know half of you won't know what I mean. *sigh*) and it asks do I want cash back. Yes please I tell it and ask for $200. It says okay and then notifies the cashier to give me my money.
|Allowing cash back wasn't my|
idea, so quit giving me crap.
I think you know that she did not thank me for bagging nor tell me to have a nice day. Not as rude as dumping poison in the ocean, but still a little rude.
