And they come with no warning,
nature loves her little surprises.
Continual crisis!

Linkee-poo is high but I'm grounded, I'm sane but I'm overwhelmed

The Neil Gaiman interview by Tim Ferriss. "You can not fix the pristine whiteness of the page.(Grokked from Neil Gaiman)

"Weighing in at no more than 4 pounds (1.8 kilograms), the helicopter is a technology demonstration project currently going through the rigorous verification process certifying it for Mars." (Grokked from Dan)

"Two people have died at the Grand Canyon in separate incidents this week that included one man stumbling over the edge of the rim while trying to take pictures, officials said." Selfies kill.

"Several members of a powerful science panel for the Environmental Protection Agency expressed doubt at a hearing Thursday about the long-established scientific consensus that air pollution can cause premature death." Oh sweet Jesus.

"Every Republican on the House Intelligence Committee is calling on Chairman Adam Schiff to resign Thursday, accusing the California Democrat of weaving a 'demonstrably false' narrative of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia and 'undermining' the credibility of the panel." Once we get an apology and repayment from Devin Nunes and Trey Gowdy, sure. "The minority leader also said he would not consider removing Committee Ranking Member Devin Nunes, who was widely criticized by Democrats during his time as chairman and had to step away from the committee Russia investigation, in return for Schiff's resignation." So, GOP, please take your pearl-clutching and fuck off.

"President Donald Trump repeated a claim that powering the U.S. with wind would not work because it 'only blows sometimes' during an interview with Fox News yesterday." (Grokked for Joshua Parker)

So there was this line from the president about how we were almost at war with North Korea until he came along and how now we have fantastic relations. He sorta blamed Obama, Bush and Clinton for attempting to start a hot war. "President Trump discussed using the 'nuclear football,' a briefcase that can be used to authorize a nuclear attack, on North Korea during a 2017 visit to Puerto Rico, CNN reported Thursday." Turns out it was his own crazy ass. Our stable genius president, everybody. With all the delicacy and sophistication of a 3-year old hyped up on sugar.

"The Mueller report is more than 300 pages long. We've seen 101 words." Reading the tea leaves.

"At his Thursday night rally in Grand Rapids, Mich., President Trump and his supporters were in a celebratory mood." Don't get cocky. Actually he's attempting to continue to poison the well before the actual report is released. But then, his supporters are not the kind to listen to actual evidence and reasonable debate.
