  • Would you like a few more minutes of sleep before class every day? The Rand Corporation and the CDC want you to get it. -- PeteIM, 02:21:34 09/06/17 Wed

    If you could convice your school to get on board with them, they could even save money by doing it. Here's an article from Tuesday's Chicago Tribune:
    Study links school day, economy
    8:30 a.m. start in classrooms could pump $1B into Illinois within 5 years, researchers say
    By Gail MarksJarvis Chicago Tribune

    If school districts throughout the state moved starting times to 8:30 a.m. so middle and high school students could sleep longer, Illinois’ economy would gain $1 billion within five years, according to a study by the Rand Corp.

    The state, along with others throughout the country, would benefit from fewer car crashes involving sleep-deprived adolescents and from students performing better in school, going to college and earning more in their careers, the study said.

    The researchers said the gain to the nation would be $9.3 billion within two years if every state made the change, a figure that is comparable to the annual revenue of Major League Baseball. The gains would come in the form of increased productivity, more tax revenue and other factors, according to the researchers.

    The nation’s economy would grow $83 billion within a decade, the study said. For the same period, Illinois would gain $2 billion after covering the extra costs associated with later start times.

    The Rand researchers looked state by state at the potential growth. Attention focused on starting times after the American Academy of Pediatrics said teens need more sleep and schools shouldn’t start before 8:30 a.m. The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention raised similar concerns.

    In response to those studies, school districts such as Barrington School District 220 considered changing starting times in 2016, but ultimately made no alteration to their schedule. Barrington High School students start school at 7:40 a.m. Chicago Public Schools also considered changing start times, but didn’t. The school district has a range of starting times with some beginning as early as 7:30 a.m. The school district declined to provide average starting times.

    CDC data show the average school starting time throughout the state of Illinois is 8:11 a.m., which means that the state on average has start times that are closer to the recommended 8:30 a.m. than much of the nation.

    “Bravo for Illinois,” said Rand researcher Wendy Troxel, although the average reflects some starting times that are easier on students than others. “We are paying for sleep deprivation and we can mitigate that.”

    Although Illinois wouldn’t recover the extra costs of a later average starting time within the first couple of years of changes, after five years Illinois would be gaining a $1.56 return on every $1 spent on moving teen starting times to 8:30 a.m., according to Rand.

    A Brookings Institution study estimates that it would cost an estimated $150 in extra spending per student to move the start times back. Those costs would stem from bus schedule changes. In addition, each school would incur an extra $110,000 on costs such as extra lighting, which schools need when staying open later in the day for extracurricular activities.

    Another study by Fred Danner and Barbara Phillips in the Journal of Clinical Sleep Medicine suggested that the car crash rate decreases by

    16.5 percent due to an hour delay in school starting times.

    Other studies have linked sleep deprivation of adolescents with obesity, depression and other problems, and shown that later starting times contribute to higher graduation rates.

    My mom and I did stock up on some extra food and stuff, just in case the worst case scenario comes into play. ::Fingers Crossed:: that it won't be as bad as what happened to Texas and Louisiana. :(

    Anyway, Hurricane Harvey has increased in intensity, and will be heading our way (Georgia and South Carolina) as soon as this coming weekend. What kind of damage will it do? Ummm, don't know. I've never been through one before. I do have one or two phone numbers of Shackers handy, so if something major happens and I can't communicate with you guys online, I'll do what I can to keep you updated. K? I doubt it'll come to all that, but that's all left up to nature at this point.

    Big kisses! And I'll seezya soon!

  • It's often said that Japanese game shows are known for being the most bizarre shows on TV... -- Mike84, 16:36:59 09/04/17 Mon




    But I saw a show called "Naked Attraction", on channel 4, produced here in the UK, for the first time the other night. And I was blown away. Unsure what to think about it. I'm conflicted.

    It's a blind date show with a difference.
    The person who gets to pick the date sees everyone naked before meeting them. However, they see them in parts. They're in these opaque pods (see photo above), where you can just see their silhouettes. At first. And then the opaque door rises and their bodies are on full display.
    Starting from the bottom half of them, until, lastly, their faces. As they get sneak peeks of their bodies, they have to vote a person off every round.

    And the reasons given are along the lines of "I don't like his penis", "I don't like her breasts, too small" etc. It's really quite blunt.

    I'm just like everyone else, I enjoy seeing flesh (well attractive flesh :P). But at the same time, seeing people on TV being judged entirely on their dangly, wobbly genitalia to win a date, just seems weird.

    Then again, they're adults and know what they're doing. If they don't care about their own modesty, then have at it.

    Yes, it's on YouTube and elsewhere online, but I'm not going to link it on here because it contains nudity. And some of our friends on here are minors. :P
    However, the clips on YouTube are 'boxed' to pass the copyright censors, which reduces the screen size. So if you want to check it out, then you're probably better off watching online elsewhere.

  • ~~~ Monday Movie Matinee ~~~ -- Comicality, 12:45:13 09/04/17 Mon


    This week's 3M gives us a bit of a dark fairy tale for Halloween!



    "Boys In The Trees"



    When I use the term 'dark fairy tale', I think that's the most appropriate term to describe this Australian gem. It's not a horror movie. More like a coming of age story with a haunting feel to it, and a couple of supernatural elements thrown in for good measure. But horror-wise, it's not going to be anything more than what you might find in an episode of 'Goosebumps' or 'Who's Afraid Of The dark', hehehe, promise.

    The movie tells the story of Corey and his former best friend, Jonah. While they used to share a strong bond when they were young, something happens that causes them to go their separate ways. Corey becomes surrounded with some truly worthless, and yet wildly popular, jerks and bullies...who party every weekend and make no apologies for the people they hurt along the way. Jonah, however, has become the outcast. Pushed aside, beaten, and called names...such is the high school experience. Sighhh...

    Anyway, it's Halloween night just before the boys' senior year comes to an end, and Corey witnesses Jonah having a bit of an accident on his skateboard. Not knowing how serious the injury truly is, Jonah demands that Corey walk him home. The boys go through an old area that they used to walk through as kids and play a game where they tried to creep each other out with ghost stories and imagine what they must look like. And from there...well, you'll just have to see for yourself! :)

    While it's a little bit different from your usual coming of age movie, I found myself really loving this flick! The 'ghost stories' that Jonah tells are actually depictions and metaphors of his own life, being bullied and ridiculed, and giving hints as to why the boys stopped being friends in the first place. You do get some creepy moments throughout, and by the end you get to see why the journey was so essential to the plot of the movie. So give it a look! Plus, you get Australian cutie, Toby Wallace to gawk at, which is always a plus! Hehehe! Have fun!

  • This is kinda cool! :) -- Comicality, 13:30:00 09/03/17 Sun


    After playing some of the Telltale games like "Walking Dead" and "Wolf Among Us", the whole story based video game format has always been cool, but this one is different. It looks more like a brooding teen, coming of age, independent movie. And I'm not sure if the two lead female characters are supposed to be romantically linked, but all the trailers I've seen over the past year or so made it seem that way.

    I mean, it's an actual video game so there is action and some mystery and stuff to do, but it's toned way down to just feel like a indie flick. Brilliant.

    Geez, remember in that game, "Bully", where you could make your character gay and have a boyfriend? Omigod, the OUTRAGE! Who knows...maybe we'll get a gay teen game for boys someday. For right now, though, this is a big step forward.

    If they ARE indeed a couple, that is. I can't confirm that. Oooh, I would LOVE to write for one of these games!! How fun would that be? Hehehe!

July we were all hyped up about the holidays but come the end of August we just wanted to get back with our schoolmates. I would say about 90% are glad to go back to school again.

  • Artificial Intelligence... Will it take over for us? -- PeteIM (), 02:50:50 09/01/17 Fri

    Some day in the not-too-distant future, I am going to be too old to drive a car. I've been driving for 53 years and if I lose my driver's license, I'll have to depend on others for transportation. The closest grocery store is three miles away, so walking would be out of the question. I'm looking forward to self-driving cars. I could easily have a chauffeured car at my beck and call. What makes this possible is Artificial Intelligence. Some people are afraid of it as the following intimates. But I have faith in people and I know that self-driving cars will be on the roads soon... hopefully before I die. :D

    My original video was removed, but thanks to Mike (Thanks, Mike), we have this one:

    So... Now I dunno how to post my captioned videos... :'(

    Anyone have any ideas? I mean, I could probably find some overseas video site that doesn't care about DMCA takedown requests, but chances are the site is gonna be in some foreign language... Which, i mean, isn't that big of a deal, because the videos would still be in english and the play controls are obviously self-explanatory... But it's the principle of the thing.

    Anywho... Thoughts? I could really use some ideas, cuz I dont want to stop making and posting videos for Joey and anyone else who can benefit from captioned music videos.

It'll broaden your musical tastes in the long run! Gotta get out of your comfort zone sometimes! This week, Jimmy just wants some cool music to listen to. But there's ONE request in all this...the song CAN'T be in English! Psh, English is so overrated! LOL! So Jimmy wants you guys to find songs, ANY songs, that aren't sung in the English language! For you guys overseas who speak other languages and listen to other types of music, this might be really easy for you! For the US and parts of the UK...time to step up and get 'international'! You've got Spanish, French, Russian, Italian...tons of stuff to choose from! So dive in, and give us at least ONE song...no less than FOUR! And give us the name of the language being spoken! Let's get those sexy tongues wagging, people! Happy hunting!

  • 19 years later... -- Mike84 (), 10:11:43 09/01/17 Fri

    Harry Potter fans have gathered in London, at the King's Cross Station, to mark the occasion in the epilogue of the last Harry Potter novel where Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley travelled to King's Cross station with their three children, James Sirius, Albus Severus, and Lily Luna, to see Albus depart for his first day at Hogwarts. September 1st, 2017.







    None other than Warwick Davis himself made an appearance at the Harry Potter event.




    This is the scene in the movie version.

    This scene always makes me feel a little sentimental for some reason. I guess it's because it's the end of a great book and movie series, but just the beginning of another. An adventure that we'll have to live out in our imaginations (unless they ever make a sequel series) for the next generation and their adventures at Hogwarts.

    A couple of guys were in their boat in the Houston area looking for people to help.

    Don't worry, it has a happy ending.

  • Rex must have read my reply to Juan's post. Fortunately, Rex is a better writer than I am... -- PeteIM (), 11:59:07 08/29/17 Tue
    Here is the opening of Rex Huppke's column in Tuesday's Chicago Tribune. (August 29)

    Tragedies like the one unfolding in Texas, as rain continues to fall and floodwaters rise, have a way of peeling layers off people until only their humanity remains.

    Just the bare essence. The good stuff.

    Stripped away are the things that bog us down so much, things like faith or skin color, sexuality or political beliefs.

    A few days before Hurricane Harvey began unleashing its fury on the coast of Texas, Sen. Tammy Duckworth [Illinois, D], an Army combat veteran who lost both her legs in Iraq, released a statement reacting to a proposed ban on transgender men and women serving in the military:

    “When I was bleeding to death in my Black Hawk helicopter after I was shot down, I didn’t care if the American troops risking their lives to help save me were gay, straight, transgender, black, white or brown. All that mattered was they didn’t leave me behind.”

    When it comes to life or death, biases and bitterness tend to wash off rather swiftly.

  • Sighhhh...well, I think I've been beaten... (Pouty Comsie) -- Comicality, 21:15:00 08/30/17 Wed


    So, for the last few weeks, I haven't been able to get into my own mailing list and send out any announcements about the new stories that have been posted. And if I can't tell people the new chapters are out, then they don't know. And if they don't know, then...I'm basically writing for nothing. This has happened before. Updates to my laptop, or to GayAuthors, or to Windows...things get out of sync or some 'bug' shows up and it needs to be fixed before I can operate again. It's usually temporary, but this pesky bug doesn't seem to be going away. I spent the last two or three days trying desperately to fix it, and change passwords and update my laptops and get everything working, but I'm losing hope here. And the stories are backing up as I finish them. (I'm at about 7 new chapters right now that haven't been posted yet)

    So, if I end up waving a white flag on this one...does anybody here know of a quality free mailing list that I can use to get the word out to the Shack when new stuff is posted?

    The thing about searching for a free service is that a lot of them have a lot of 'limits' that I won't be able to work with. So three things that I'm looking for specifically are as follows...

    1- Instant mailing. If I type up and send out an announcement at 3 o'clock in the morning, I really want the announcement to go out at 3 o'clock in the morning. If there's going to be a 12 hour delay, that's no good for me.

    2- I'd have to be able to send out multiple notices a week, or possibly in the same day. If there's a limit for the number of notices that I can send out...also not very good for the site. I'd need some room. I don't send stuff out excessively, but it would suck to have to ration things out tooo tightly.

    3- It would have to be able to hold a LOT of subscribers! My current mailing list had just over 600 email addresses on it. So I would need a mailing list that can handle that kind of fanbase.

    So...any suggestions? The sooner I get signed up and experiment with how it works, the sooner I can post the rest of these chapters and get things working again. I'll be searching too, plus I'll keep working on getting into my old mailing list. It's just that you guys know more about this stuff than I do! So...once again...

    ...'little help'?

  • Life's kinda funny -- Juan, 00:15:58 08/29/17 Tue
    I have many conflicted feelings right now. What I would give to see some sunshine right about now. How does England handle all that rain? Hahaha. So I'm just astonished over what Harvey brought. There's so much havoc outside, its like the apocalypse, but there's a lot of good feelings coming around too. Seeing all the rescues and the people coming together in a time of need. Neighbor helping neighbor, nothing else matters right now other than surviving. I know thats easy for me to say safe, in a warm bed on the third story of my uni's dormitories. We've gone out to help too, as far as we could.

    Back in Houston its not going so well, but if you watch the news you could probably see that. Its heartbreaking to see EVERYTHING that i know totally ruined. Looking at pictures and videos of places I frequent, downtown, everything around my house, just completely submerged. Im really glad I did not go home like my mum wanted me too. But speaking of her and my pops and my bros, they're at a shelter right now trapped in Houston. My house, my neighborhood was devastated by Harvey. Roofs blown off, walls crumbles, and everything underwater. My mum called me as it was happening. My dad didnt want to evacuate because he didn't think it would he that bad. They were in for a rude awakening, just as we all were. They woke up to our roof tearing off and water rushing in. They're okay now which is all i really cared about.

    The city where my uni is hasn't been that effected by Harvey. We only got the edge of it since we're about half an hour from the border to Louisiana. Still everything is flooding here too. There storm is supposed to be moving towards us which has caused my uni to start evacuating the residents North. Its so surreal you know? This has been all I can think about for the past few days. We're stuck, everyone's stuck, but the goodness of the Texan people is what's really shinning. Its so amazing to see everyone working as one. To see the country help us in our time of need. Its honestly amazing and it brings tears to my eyes to see it right in front of me. #Houstonstrong

  • ~~~ Monday Movie Matinee ~~~ -- Comicality, 06:16:49 08/28/17 Mon


    For this week's 3M...don't just watch it once! Watch it TWICE! :)



    "Book Of Eli"



    What can I say about this movie that won't give away too much? Hmmm...ok, here we go...

    Denzel Washington plays 'Eli', who is a wandering stranger through the wastelands of America after a hideous war! And that's totally believable, because he's a badass, and could totally survive the apocalypse! Hehehe! However...he's trying to get fro point A to point B, and that leads him straight through a town of thugs and maniacs...who are trying to steal his precious cargo before he can reach his destination.

    That turns out to not be such a good idea.

    And I think that's all I can tell you guys about this movie. Hehehe, I know that it's vague, but this movie will be SO much better if you just dive into it without knowing much ahead of time! :) Like I said...watch it once, get happy...then watch it again later with a friend who hasn't seen it yet. Much joy to be had, doing it that way.

    Denzel Washington, Mila Kunis, Gary Oldman...check it out! Enjoy!

  • This is bizarre.. -- Mike84 (), 19:15:29 08/27/17 Sun


    I had no idea that they made a TV documentary about my old school that I attended from 11-16.

    The show was produced and aired in 2013, on channel 4 in the UK. And I've only just found out about it now.

    I graduated in April 2001. So I don't recognize any of the faces in the video, except for one the teachers, Mrs Lee. She was one of my English teachers. She's seen about half way through the second clip.

    The school looks exactly the same though. Even the school uniform's the same.

    From what I gather, a documentary show did a few series (seasons in the US) consisting of 8 episodes each, on various high schools around the UK.

    The school I attended was the third of such series. Unfortunately there's only a few episodes of it left on YouTube because of copyright reasons.

    I can't say that I particularly enjoyed going that school, but I had a few close friends there and some good memories. It's where I grew up, developed crushes, had relationships. So it was interesting to see the place again after all these years.

    It's surreal seeing it in a TV show. Especially because there's nothing particularly special about it. It's just a typical medium sized high school academy.

  • Oh baby baby it's a wild world -- Juan, 00:55:56 08/26/17 Sat
    Hey you guuuuuys. S/o to RickGayAZ for all the good links! Thank you so much, I really appreciate your insight. You probably lived through a couple of doozies yourself huh?

    Anyways I just wanted to let y'all know how surreal it is here. So my mum wanted me to go home right? But 1) I had to work today 2)I didn't want to drive through all the outgoing traffic 3) Id be literally heading into the storm

    So I opted to stay at my uni. But as i was out for supplies.. its was just crazy. I felt like I was in a movie and fighting people at the aisles of Kroger for batteries. Honestly the adrenaline rush is really getting to me. We've gotten rain and so far its flooded but not severely yet. We have yet to hit the bulk of the storm, as of now I think it just hit Galveston so it should hit us full force in about an hour. Im really loving all the facebook posts and just the attitude in the air. Everyone is extremely nonchalant about it and chill. Its a good feeling. There's kick backs going on throughout the whole hurricane. But um cannabis and alcohol during a hurricane seems wrong to me but meh what do I know.

    And if I'm being REALLY honest, I'm kinda glad that the hurricane pushed away the summer heat momentarily. But yeah I'll let y'all know what come of this

  • Stealing this back from Jimmy no taking it back -- . (Sunday Night Cuddle Time), 17:45:50 08/27/17 Sun


    I’ve always liked this Bowie track since I first heard always thought it was way cuddly but after posting it on Jimmy it’s taken on an absolute different vibe/feeling. I and now we keep replaying it everything about it is perfect, the vocals, the lyrics, the musicianship, the production etc. it seems to have taken on a completely different meaning I absolutely love it. He used that swirling piano/keyboard sound than featured a lot on the Aladdin Sane album but not on the original version of this song. This is one of those scenes when the live version is far superior to the original studio version which was great anyway. I miss you Bowie but we still got the legacy. He looks so happy here by then he’d overcome his big drug problem was happily married, had kids and was enjoying life. #thiscouldabsolutelybethefirstdancesongwhenwegetmarried

    Youtube has CC’s oh no it hasn’t they’re wank lolz.

  • This was pretty funny, and a little suspenseful.. -- Mike84, 12:08:19 08/27/17 Sun


    A couple of teens explore an old abandoned mall (abandoned since 1999), in Los Angeles, California, overnight.

    It's not a scripted show or movie, or anything. It's just a couple of kids doing it for YouTube fame.

    It's almost 30 minutes long but it's worth watching the whole clip (and in full screen mode) because of the suspense (and the surprise at the end :P) etc.
