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 puts on its red shoes and dances the blues

I had to phone someone so I picked on you. Hey, that's far out so you heard him too! Switch on the TV we may pick him up on channel two, look out your window I can see his light…
Let the children lose it, let the children use it, let all the children boogie

Bye, Bowie, bye. Thanks.

Medieval church door flanked by trees, probably inspired the Gates of Moria. (Grokked from Hannah Bowman)

So you may have heard about the Rey not in the Hasbro Star Wars Monopoly set brouhaha. I even re-entered the Great Trolls Wars about it (you'd be surprised just how many "strong men" have codependence issues, well, maybe not) wondering why the hell Rey doesn't have more figurines and toys. To all those who say it was because of "spoilers", JJ Abrams (the supposed "anti-spoiler" person) want you to know that's complete bullshit. (Grokked from Mur Lafferty)

That moment you know you're going to make a great team, when your navigator/radioman keys the mic before you can to do a ground-speed check to put an F18 Hornet pilot in his place. Yea, that one never gets old. Also, in case you're ever wondering, the Blackbird has always been my favorite jet. (Grokked from Dan)

We don't need no stinking regulations or government oversight. A hospital in China is partially demolished before realizing that doctors, a patient, several corpses in the morgue, and expensive equipment were still inside. (Grokked from Chia Lynn)

Why are we working so much? Well, for those of us who have work. Basically we're not making as much per hour, so we have to work more. Also, gee, what started in 1973 that caused this change? Finally, there is more money being made, it's just not going where the money is actually being made. (Grokked from Jeff Beeler)

Even in healthcare there are huge numbers of people who don't understand addiction. Maybe this will help. It's not a moral failing. Opioids rewire the brain to need them. The physical addition to opioids, alcohol, psychedelics, all of it gets hardwired into our heads. While the brain is plastic, reversing these structures (including what chronic pain does to the brain) is very difficult.

Because education and charter schools is going to come up in the election, this is what it looks like when you actually have a culture that values education. Japan's rail authority keeps train station used by one person open for years, because said person used the train to commute to high school. They even adjusted the schedule to accommodate her commute better. So you know the difference between supporting students and giving public money to private companies.

The problem with crazy is it tend to draw other crazy to it. In this case, after Ammon Bundy's group made a plea for all good militias to come to their aid, one did show up. But the Ammon Bundy group doesn't want them there and has asked for them to go home. You know, just like the residents around the wildlife sanctuary asked Ammon to go home. So basically nobody wants anybody to be around there. Okay, this is getting fun. Munches popcorn, waits for the inevitable crossfire accident. (Grokked from Matt Staggs)
