Hey Amanda Palmer's husband gave another interview about the silly things that have kept him occupied.
I normally don't go for questionnaires, but what sword would you use in the Medieval or Renaissance eras? I got the arming sword (aka war rapier). This is the type of sword most people think if when they think "sword." Strange, since it most possible my ancestors carried the schiavona (a type of basket-hilted broadsword), which was favored by the Slavic mercenaries. (Grokked from Tania)
The Tower of London had magical sigils burned into it's timbers to help keep the Devil out. (Grokked from Tor.com)
So, just what did they eat at the first Thanksgiving?
Okay, so I posted a little on what the real goals of terrorism is, to divide us and spark revolution. Want a little proof? How would you explain their reasoning to take a selfie of a sikh and photoshop to make it look like he was a terrorists? See, Amuricans already don't know the difference, this is a misinformation campaign to incite violence against sikhs, the people who have been helping refugees fleeing Syria by setting up kitchens. Sure, he blames the gamergate people for smearing him, but how did it get passed around so much on the network ISIS uses? And then there is the question of who is the terrorists; ISIS, gamergaters, or both. (Grokked from Annalee Flower Horne)
The ultrasonic chirp is coming from inside your house. "Silverpush, a startup that's just received $1.25M in venture capital, uses ultrasonic chirps that are emitted by apps, websites, and TV commercials to combine the identities associated with different devices (tablets, phones, computers, etc), so that your activity on all of them can be aggregated and sold to marketers."
Oh look, it's the party of "Government shouldn't pick winners and losers." "Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush says that any U.S. assistance to Middle Eastern refugees should focus primarily on Christians fleeing persecution." Ah, he must come from a Good Christian Family™. But at least he's better than some of the others in the GOP race. "Bush's views on refugees differ from other GOP presidential contenders who have called for an outright ban on accepting any Middle Eastern refugees. Former Arkansas governor Mike Huckabee has been saying for weeks that the United States should not accept any more refugees from the region. On Friday, former neurosurgeon Ben Carson urged Congress to stop the Obama administration from allowing in more refugees from the regions." What a bunch of lovely people they've nominated. We had a word for them in school, fucktards. (Grokked from Chia Evers)
So, after 7 years Sarah Palin admit the truth. Katie Couric asking here about what publications she reads was a fair question, and she just had a crappy answer. You know, after the whole "it was a gotcha question" thing.
