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 quick cuts before the weekend

It's been a long five years and I'm running out of steam. So much to do, so little time in which to accomplish anything. Plus I need to start studying hard for the CT registry (yea, when is that gonna happen?).

The Japanese trailer for Star Wars. (Grokked from everybody)

Rejected Princesses posters for sale. (Grokked from Saladin Ahmed)

Not one of us. "When doctors tried to find out why (a patient's) breathing was labored, they came across what looked like tumors on his lungs, but the samples looked really weird… 'It looked like cancer, but the tumors were composed of cells that were not human,' says Dr. Atis Muehlenbachs, a pathologist at the Centers for Disease Control…" Turns out the tapeworms the man had developed cancers, which then metastasized to him (through a combination of compromised immune systems and the prevalence of the dwarf tapeworm).

More proof that sex is fluid (which it is in most cultures, but not in the US), "Britain's oldest tree appears to be undergoing a sex change." Mmm, berries. (Grokked from John Scalzi)

NASA just observed an object leave a black hole. I'm sure it'll all be fine (packs bags, heads to survival bunker). (Grokked from Teresa Nielsen Hayden)

Ah, the Oath Keepers, that highly ethical organization. Whom a founder of is being disbarred.

"Dr. Ben Carson on Wednesday night confirmed his belief that the pyramids in Egypt were built for grain storage by Joseph, the Biblical figure who helped the Egyptians survive famine…" Uh, yea, Ben. Sure. But, hey, he's okay if I make fun of it. I prefer to make fun of his personal story of being an angry young man before finding God, and having been held up once. Thanks, Dr. Carson, we're done here.

And next up to protest that, no, really, he has the balls, Ricky Santorum. Sure, in his mind he won against Rachel Maddow, and that "taking on" the ladies of The View makes him ready to take on ISIS. Also that ISIS knows who he is and is fearful… you know, I can't even type that with a straight face.
