What a field day for the heat
A thousand people in the street
Singing songs and carrying signs
Mostly saying, "hooray for our side"

Linkee-poo watches the stags in the Royal Park

"(A)n ancient city called Idu, hidden beneath a mound." (Grokked from Jay Lake)

J002E3 is the prodigal space trash. Probably the 3rd stage of Apollo 12 which took a few trips around the Sun and then got caught in the Earth's gravity well before going back around the Sun. (Grokked from Tor.com)

Man fails to cross Atlantic using a helium balloon cluster. Um, yea, Bob. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Just in case you think the GOP is very concerned about this shutdown. Nope, just good ol' fun to them. (Grokked from the Slactivist)

"The largest study of gun violence in the United States, released Thursday afternoon, confirms a point that should be obvious: widespread American gun ownership is fueling America’s gun violence epidemic." Shocked, shocked I am… (Grokked from Jay Lake)

Well, at least the Governor of Kentucky knows what being a public servant means, even though Kentucky's two state senators have forgotten. (Grokked from the Slactivist)

And some are more equal than others. A two-tiered voting system in Kansas and Arizona… say, which parties control those states? Oh yea, never mind. Next up, literacy tests and poll taxes. (Pointed to by Dan)

Think the mortgage crisis is over? Not if you still have a mortgage. Because the bank, while protesting that they'll lose money, won't and actually just wants your house. (Grokked from the Slactivist)

"Japanese media say the Tokyo Electric Power Company (TEPCO) reported lower than actual levels of radioactivity in waters around the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear plant for nearly two years." Like we didn't really expect that. (Grokked from Jay Lake)

History is repeating when it comes to paying people excessively low rates. Not like violent rioting would ever happen here in the US when it comes to employment laws, pay rates, and respect at work. (Grokked from the Slactivist)

The illustrated Book of Bad Arguments. (Grokked from Jay Lake)
