It’s Time for Some New Dog Breed Categories

Even though I watch them every year, I really dislike a lot about dog shows. I don’t like the idea that purebred dogs are somehow seen as superior to mutts, I don’t like the ridiculous criteria these dogs are judged by, and most of all, I don’t like the useless way they sort dogs into groups.

The newcomer, God Eater, was pretty good; I think I’m going to watch it just for the art style. Read More Weekly Anime Review

Ask UfYH: 5 Things to Clean When You Only Have 5 Minutes

Q: This is probably cheating somehow, but say I only have the energy or the inclination to clean five minutes at a time. And those times aren’t really close together. What can I do that will make the most difference?
