Patricia, already the strongest tropical storm ever recorded, approaches the theoretical limit of a storm's strength. That can't be good.
Fifty design terms defined. For when I go off the deep end and start talking in code. Also, look, that's a pretty good definition of Brand (which everybody gets wrong). (Grokked from Dan)
NSFW if people can read over your shoulder. "Mia Matsumiya has received many supportive messages from fans following her career as a violinist. But for the last 10 years, she’s also been receiving something else: creepy, abusive, and harassing messages from strangers." She also kept them. So, just in case you may still harbor thoughts that women are making this shit up. Look, dudebros, you need help. And maybe medication. From professionals. (Grokked from John Scalzi)
Comedian and friends brutally assaulted after the refuse the advances of a group of men. Just in case you thought it was only online. (Grokked from Chuck Wendig)
After a scorcher of a September, it would pretty much take Earth retiring to "Ice Ball" status to not be (by far) the hottest year on record.. (Grokked from just about everybody)
The Planet Money podcast on the violent rise of Unions. Also, why we really don't want to have to live through those times again.
Man bites dog. No, seriously, the guy bit the police dog. "The confused dog also bit an officer." I love the idea of that. In thoughts in the the dog's mind going something like, "What the Total Fuck, Dude, okay, everybody is getting bitten then!" (Grokked from Dan)
The British "Conservative Party's 'anti-radicalisation' laws call on teachers and other public servants to report brown children who espouse 'radical' ideologies -- and now the other shoe has dropped, with the Family Division of the Judiciary promising to steal those children from their parents." Jumping Jesus on a pogo-stick, WTF? But, hey, we can help our friends the Britons by offering all those Boarding Schools we sent American Indian children to as a place to send all those radicalized children. Okay, who am I kidding? If the conservatives on these shores piss their pants by even floating the idea of closing Gitmo and bringing those prisoners to US Maximum Security Prisons, imagine what they'd lose thinking of all those kids at a boarding school without razor wire.
You know, when Stuart Varney can pose a "gotcha" question, you really aren't a fucking candidate. Or at least you simply don't have a brain or any clue as to reality. Stuart Varney. Trump was trolled by Stuart Varney.
Benny Netanyaho goes full Godwin. "Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu sparked an uproar in Israel on Wednesday for suggesting that a World War II-era Palestinian leader persuaded the Nazis to adopt their Final Solution to exterminate 6 million Jews." Germany then had to remind the Israeli Prime Minister exactly who it was who came up with the idea and then instituted the Nazi's Final Solution, aka the Holocaust.
Ben Carson says he wants Secret Service protection because he's a challenge to secular progressives. When was the last time you heard of a progressive assassin? Dude, really, you're the "safe" black man the right has been talking about for so long. You are the "friend" of all those people who say they "have black friends." You're not a threat, you're barely above inconsequential. That's why the love you're idiocy in the GOP, you parrot back what they've long held in their hearts.
"Real estate mogul Donald Trump on Friday announced that he asked super PACs supporting his presidential bid to return all the funds they've raised—and challenged all other presidential candidates to demand the same." Um, isn't that "coordination"?
Tweet of my heart: @NYTScience In some howler monkey species, deeper calls mean smaller testicles http://nyti.ms/1Gkxn9o
And that can pretty well sum up much of the internet.
