My heater stopped working last week and we're behind on rent so we haven't brought it up. It wasn't really an issue as we had a few days of 60 degree weather but it dropped again overnight and is going to be sub 50 for the next week. It's time for me to get creative when it comes to heating the house. Running a hot shower with all the doors open seems to be heating the upstairs a bit at least. Probably gonna try making a little terracotta heater with candles, too. Any other ideas?

I'm increasingly thinking of the shutdown as a way to accellerate privatization. they're Shock Doctrine-ing by creating their own man-made crisis. I can't help but think they'd love to have privately owned and run National Parks. Airports with private security firms like the one Betsy Devos' husband ran instead of the TSA (that could really help them enforce their immigration policies more brutally).
Well not everyone on here thankfully. A bunch of different companies are trying to get in on the action, though.
Blue Monday is the "most depressing day of the year".
They made up some bullshit formula that adds weather conditions, amount of debt from holidays and stuff, and a few other things. It tends to fall on the 3rd of 4th Monday of January. Also, it only applies to the Northern Hemisphere as it's summer in the south.
