    1. Hello.

      Go Pencils?

        1. Quills or GTFO!

          1. Go multicultural crayons!

    2. Go Phones?

    3. If the Caps had gotten past them, they’d be there.

      I’m just sayin’.

      The Caps came in second.

      1. And you know who I got that logic from?

        Don Shula.

        The Mom unit was working with him at one point. He told her that when he got knocked out of the playoffs, he always rooted for whomever knocked him out–because there was less shame in getting knocked out by the champion. Getting knocked out by the champ was like coming in second.

        Don Shula effectively told my Mom that the Caps came in second. That’s my story. I’m stickin’ with it.

        Don. Fucking. Shula.

      2. The Caps came in second.

        In other words, they didn’t win.

        1. Yes, they did win.

          They came in second.

    4. Go ‘way, batin’.

        1. What are things Winston’s mom frequently screams while surrounded by penis’?

          1. Crusty! Why is one of the penises crusty?

  1. Happy International Whore’s Day!

    Finally, I get a day.

    1. Just one international whore?

      1. Yes. And guess who the One International Whore is?

        1. I dunno. Must be an international whore of mystery.

  2. 186) Usually Slate’s little cultural pieces are a waste of time, but this one is right on: Don’t run a marathon: You have better things to do

    I ran the Marine Corps Marathon in 2000, and I guess I’m glad to be able to say I did it, as a matter of doing something really challenging.

    I don’t think it was beneficial for my health though. Once I reached about 15 miles in my training runs, I found I was running with on-going low-grade injuries. My feet and knees just always hurt and my body in general never felt quite right, as if I was always on the verge of getting sick. Once the marathon was over and my mileage went down, everything went back to normal. It’s not good for your heart either. A study a few years ago showed that the hearts’ of marathoners were not healthier than a normal person’s?rather, they exhibited scar tissue, probably from overuse.

    In my opinion, if you simply want to run for health, 5K-10K is a good distance, with 10 miles probably the most you should do. The 26.2 miles of a marathon is way, way too long. There’s a reason Phelippides’ accomplishment was seen as a deed worthy of remembering, but not emulating.

    1. Wuss.

    2. I tend to agree. I’m in excellent shape and I kinda feel the half marathon is more than enough. I never got into triathlons and stuff. Way too much time is needed to train. Same with cycling.

      I like to enter small, sprint races. For example, duathlons of about 35-50k.

      1. Scratch ‘tend to agree’ in the sense, I don’t think it’s bad to run marathons. In fact, I did it a couple of times.

        1. I think there is a specific body type/composition/run style such that marathons or even longer are not bad for the participant, but that probably 75-90% of even hardcore runners still are doing more damage than good when pushed that far.

          Running sucks, though.

      2. “I like to enter small, sprint races.”

        5 meter dash to the fridge!

        10 meter sprint to the loo!

        Rinse, repeat.

    3. I tend to think runners (every weekend 5ks/marathons/half-marathons) are worse than cross-fitters.

      1. Nouveau-runners I agree with.

        Runners who know what they’re doing are alright like any real athlete.

    4. The problem is that you’re running in the first place instead of lifting weights like a real man.

      1. Actually, I got kind of bored of running after the marathon and got a lot more into weight lifting. Nowadays, most weeks lift 4x, do one long run, and one short run with springs or hills.

        1. “With springs”?

          Do tell.

          1. Sprints

            1. I am disappoint.

              1. Pictured a pogo rally.

                Disappointed with Rich.

        2. You know what else is not worth it? Walking on the moon. It sounds impressive, but it’s just a bunch of boring craters and dust. It’s expensive as fuck, takes forever to get there in cramped quarters, and you are at constant danger of oblivion from the cold vacuum of space. No thanks.

            1. Doing the God’s work, Crusty.

            2. I’ve used that line for years never remembering where I stole it first. Thanks.

    5. The sport isn’t merely dangerous; it’s extravagant. It costs more than $250 just to enter the New York City Marathon and to have the chance to chafe your nipples alongside 50,000 other people.

      Best thing Slate has ever written?

      1. Someone needs a stick of Bodyglide.

        1. Not me, I have strong nipples.

          1. Jeff Winger: They’re nipple guards for running. Olympic athletes use them.
            Policeman: Buddy, I worked at a maximum-security prison for seven years, and those are still the gayest thing I’ve ever seen.
            Jeff Winger: Well, I find that hard to believe.

      2. It costs more than $250 just to enter the New York City Marathon and to have the chance to chafe your nipples alongside 50,000 other people.

        No, it costs $250 for a shirt, medal, and some free goodies. The running part is free.

        I’m a lifelong, severe asthmatic. I did one marathon and decided to never run again, but it was absolutely worth it. If she was in constant pain, my guess is that she wasn’t stretching daily, icing after long runs, or wearing appropriate footwear.

        I agree with PBR, she’s a wuss.

    6. I can understand why people would run a marathon (or climb really big mountains or do any other extreme athletic activity). But, yeah, I don’t think it is something you do to improve your health or anything like that. You do it to push your limits. I wouldn’t, but I can see why some people do.

      I’ve heard that marathons used to be very popular events, largely because people hoped to see someone drop dead from the exertion.

    7. I mean, Phelippides DID die immediately after his run.

      Marathoners have always seemed weird to me. “Hey!! You know that thing that became famous because the guy who did it died after doing it?? LET’S ALL DO IT TOO!!”

      1. Actually, the legend was that he ran to Sparta, got word that they wouldn’t fight, ran back, fought in the battle of Marathon, and then ran back to Sparta again. No wonder the poor bastard dropped dead.

    8. And you’re running in a slow-moving crowd like cattle. You know what’s more fun? Cycling alone.

    9. Wait, who ever said marathons were good for you?

      1. #Durandal

      2. Not Jim Fixx.

  3. A California bill would put copyright and trademark protections on state records.

    You hear that Girl Talk? No sampling state records for your next album.

    1. Bureaucracy rock is so over. We are into sampling police videos now. Lots of rhythmic patterns.

      1. STOP.
        STOP RESISTING!
        STOP.

  4. …but attacks on Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson verge on comical.

    In that no one knows who Gary Johnson or what the Libertarian Party is.

  5. Ghost-hunters get the willies by stumbling on ‘porn shoot’ in Hull graveyard

    The tourists were examining the inscriptions on the slabs at the graveyard on the south side of Sculcoates Lane, Hull, when they heard groans coming from further down the path.

    When they went to investigate they were stunned to find a young woman having sex with a man in a patch of ivy. Two other men were so busy filming the broad daylight romp with video cameras, they did not realise they had an audience.

    Ghost guide Mike Covell said: “It was the couple who saw us first. They were going at it like knives among the ivy. She was a blonde.

    “We looked at her and she looked at us. Then she pushed the bloke off her. The guy ran after her desperately trying to protect his privates from the brambles.

    1. going at it like knives among the ivy

      *** wink wink nudge nudge ***

    2. Was he a petite Frenchman named Mort?

    3. Going at it like knives? How do knives go? Do they typically go in ivy when they go? What does this person do with knives that reminds him of sex? So many questions…

      1. That was a new one for me too. But apparently it’s something people say. Something to do with stabbing, maybe?

        1. So he was going at like a knife while she was going at it like a cantaloupe.

    4. Ghost-hunters get the willies woodies by stumbling on ‘porn shoot’ in Hull graveyard

      Fixed it for them

  6. “Republicans talk about fiscal responsibility, but they tend to place not such a high emphasis on civil liberties,” Ebke said.

    And with that came the great shrug from libertarians who already knew it and everyone else who doesn’t care.

    1. Emphasis on the word “talk” in “talk about fiscal responsibility”.

      They don’t walk, just talk.

    1. Good God, why would you post something like this? Do you think you’re Sugarfree or something?

      1. Jesus, I hope SugarFree didn’t see that…

        1. I hope he writes something about the metallic taste imparted by all the Geritol.

          1. LO
            *** retches ***
            L

          2. I have taught you to fish, not just wait to be given a fish. This pleases me.

            But, srsly, gross headline.

            1. So you’re saying it wasn’t Hillary — that it was a fish the whole time? I feel better now.

              1. It’s an honest mistake. Because of the smell.

            2. “Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day. DON’T teach a man to fish… and keep the fish for yourself. He’s a grown man, and fishing’s not that hard.”

  7. “Republicans talk about fiscal responsibility, but they tend to place not such a high emphasis on civil liberties,” Ebke said.

    Or on fiscal responsibility.

    1. I don’t know, Republicans in Nebraska might be a little more serious on that than your average Republican.

  8. “Not only do we need to strengthen [Social Security’s] long-term health, it’s time we finally made Social Security more generous and increased its benefits,” President Obama said Wednesday.

    OK, now he is just trolling us…

    1. Because it can’t go broke fast enough.

    2. So crazy it just might work.

    3. “If the rich pay a little more”. It sounds like his idea is to remove the contribution cap.

      1. Thing is, that is probably something that is going to have to happen one way or another. The problem being that morons like Obama want to use that extra money to increase current benefits when the reality is that does not even come close to closing SS’s long term funding gap so it basically comes down to a vote buying scheme.

        The number of people who would be impacted by lifting the contribution cap is tiny compared to the number of people who would be helped by the increased benefits and who the fuck cares about the future, that is for those suckers to worry about.

    4. Hey Millennials, you’re going need to work a few extra hours this weekend to top off you parents and grandparents SS check.
      hmm ok.

    5. It’s the word “finally” that cracks me up.

  9. “but attacks on Libertarian Party nominee Gary Johnson verge on comical.”

    I know one thing to be true: political humor is never less funny than when leading up to an election.

  10. OT: The nation-state is losing its grip, and that is self-evidently a very bad thing. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/06…..iants.html

    1. OMG PEOPLE ARE CHOOSING TO DO THINGS WE ARE DOOMED

    2. The nation-state is rapidly becoming an obsolete concept, but it won’t go peacefully into that good night.

    3. And now, out of nowhere, come a handful of American technology companies to wash away all your cultural defenses. Suddenly just about everything that a French citizen buys, reads, watches or listens to flows in some way or another through these behemoths.

      You can just smell the statism seeping through the pores of the NYT’s.

      1. “Out of nowhere”. Yeah. It has nothing to do with what people in France or anywhere else demonstrate what they want through their purchases and behavior. It just happened. All by itself.

      2. I love how they think the ‘behemoths’ are a handful of tech companies, none of which could ever compete with the government when it comes to size, scope, and reach of their impact on the ordinary citizen.

        1. Yeah, France could ban Amazon, Facebook, and Google right now if it wanted to.

          1. No they couldn’t, because those pesky voters would be displeased and get in the way. The ignorant rubes don’t know what’s best for them, leaving the nation-state defenseless against their stupid tastes.

      3. But the battle with tech giants promises to be more spectacular. Over the last decade, we have witnessed the rise of what I like to call the Frightful Five. These companies ? Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft and Alphabet, Google’s parent ? have created a set of inescapable tech platforms that govern much of the business world. The five have grown expansive in their business aims and invincible to just about any competition. Their collective powers are a source of pride and fear for Americans. These companies thoroughly dominate the news and entertainment industries, they rule advertising and retail sales, and they are pushing into health care, energy and automobiles.

        Be afraid of the private tech firms, but not the governments that desperately want to control them and who collect way more data illegally and without consent.

        1. “Thoroughly dominate”? Other than the fact that I only own one smartphone none of these companies even comes close to “dominating” any of those realms of my life.

        2. “the Frightful Five. These companies ?” Apple, Amazon, Facebook, Microsoft and Alphabet, Google’s parent ”

          Reazon has something to aspire to.

      4. Wow. It’s amazing someone can look at this technological wonder, which is bringing about unity and togetherness of mankind, crossing borders and knitting cultures together, and think that its effects are BAD.

  11. The Obama Administration’s ‘War On Salt’ Is Bad Policy Based On Bad Science

    “Americans need to reduce their sodium intake to reduce their risk of heart attack or stroke,” explained CSPI president, Michael F. Jacobson, to ABC News after the FDA released its memo. “If companies achieved the FDA’s proposed targets, it would have a huge benefit for the public’s health. If companies don’t achieve these voluntary targets, it would be clear that mandatory limits will be necessary to reach safe sodium levels.” (Exasperated italics mine.)

    Now, you may ask yourself, “Who the hell is Michael F. Jacobson to tell me what I need to do?” Well, Jacobson’s organization, meticulously debunked since 1971, now says that if you don’t do something voluntarily then the government has the duty to force you. Which sounds about right these days on almost every front.

    But setting all that aside, what happens if salt isn’t even bad for you? What if CSPI is wrong as usual? What if the FDA is pushing flawed science and compelling companies to engage in practices that will do nothing to improve public health? What if these practices end up hurting people?

    1. Salt is only bad for you if you have high blood pressure. I mean, way too much salt is probably bad for anyone, but if you keep it within normal bounds your salt consumption is not something you should even think about.

      1. Downthread they’re talking about Trump lapping up salted pork. Is that unhealthy?

        1. “salted pork”

          You mean /ham/??

      2. I’ve noticed that almost all pre-packaged food is less salty already these days. I never had to add salt to anything until recently.

        1. I’ve noticed that too. It’s really annoying. Now you have to add salt to your ketchup.

          1. The trick there is to not use ketchup.

            Actually I found a ketchup/sriracha blend that I like.

            1. Ketchup has its place.

              1. True, as the garbage can is a place.

            2. I prefer chili sauce to ketchup. The old tomato kind that is used to make cocktail sauce, not the sweet Thai stuff.

              1. I tried that for awhile, kinda expensive – at least I can only find it in tiny bottles.

      3. And not always then.
        I have (moderately) high blood pressure, well controlled by medication.
        I have hyponatremia — low blood sodium levels. This predates the high bp diagnosis and is exacerbated by the bp meds. Not severely exacerbated, but it certainly impacts and modulates the available classes of medication — diuretics are flat out.
        So — high blood pressure, low blood sodium. And a constant stream of well-intentioned bad advice that I cut down on my sodium intake by reducing consumption of salt.

        1. I’m glad you said this. It points out this sort of one-size-fits-all nutritional advice is bullshit. There are people out there like you for whom a low sodium diet could be positively unhealthful.

      4. To be fair, many Americans are very slug-like.

        1. You can keep slugs at bay with a bit of salt. It really f’s them up.

    2. The comments on the salt story at the Star Tribune are horrible. All the proggies are calling people who want to be left alone stupid because the FDA only made recommendations, not mandates

      From comments so far I can only conclude that 100 percent of conservatives either cannot read or don’t read before commenting.

      Article clears says “recommends” and extremists conservatives think “mandate” and “law”

      1. Like the Title IX “Dear Colleague” letters to universities were just recommendations, right?

      2. Proggie idiots are clueless about how government operates. Shocked, I am.

      3. Watch the reaction to “I recommend not getting an abortion”

        1. “I recommend reading these poets”

        2. I recommend you use the bathroom with the fixtures that match your biological equipment.

        3. And definitely don’t put salt on the fetus.

    3. Someone doesn’t read the links.

      1. You know who else didn’t read the links…

        1. All of us?

    4. Wasn’t there something recently suggesting that low sodium diets actually are associated with worse health outcomes?
      There is tons of evidence that salt is at least not bad for people without certain kinds of blood pressure problems. This is just idiotic. Even more than the continued pushing of the low fat thing, in my opinion.

      1. Put bacon in everything. Takes care of the low salt and low fat problem. Everything = delicious.

  12. “Republicans talk about fiscal responsibility, but they tend to place not such a high emphasis on civil liberties,” Ebke said.

    They evidently don’t place much emphasis on fiscal responsibility, either.

    1. I thought that was an odd thing to say. Sounds like she wants a political party that talks less about fiscal responsibility and more about civil liberties? Doing anything about either one is out of the question. At least she’s honest, I guess.

  13. A California bill would put copyright and trademark protections on state records.

    So I wouldn’t be able to sample them anymore?

  14. “Not only do we need to strengthen [Social Security’s] long-term health, it’s time we finally made Social Security more generous and increased its benefits,” President Obama said Wednesday.

    FREE SHIT!

    SHAT OUT BY UNICORNS!

    1. Send this letter to five other people….

  15. Bank of America gets half off its Justice Dept. settlement

    The bank has wiped about $194 million off its record $16.6 billion 2014 mortgage settlement by donating to nonprofits and legal groups. Thanks to little-known provisions in the settlement, the bank only had to make $84 million in donations to do that.

    The bank wasn’t exploiting any loophole. It’s a key part of the deal the Justice Department offered to get it to settle in the first place. For every dollar the bank has given the nonprofits ? none of which were victims of fraud themselves ? it has claimed at least two dollars off the settlement. The deal ensured the Obama administration that a certain part of the settlement funds would go to friendly liberal groups, bypassing the normal congressional appropriations.

    1. wow. That’s some bold corruption right there.

      1. Why would they bother trying to hide it? Nobody cares anymore.

    2. How about 4-to-1 write down for giving to The Clinton Slushfund Foundation? Huh? Good deal, right, Barry?

      1. Depends. What’s his take of it?

    3. “The deal ensured the Obama administration that a certain part of the settlement funds would go to friendly liberal groups, bypassing the normal congressional appropriations.”

      NRA is nonprofit. Operation Rescue. etc BoA could troll Obama big time.

  16. Good morning. Here’s some humor to kick off your day.

    15 Bollywood subtitles gone hilariously wrong

    Without the Hindi dialog, even I can’t tell WTF some of the subtitles really meant to say.

    1. “This bondage is the bondage of love,”

      Indeed.

      1. That movie’s plot is that they’re brothers who are reincarnated to avenge their murder in their previous birth.

        The subtitle is really hilarious though.

        1. “In… Two Brothers! It’s- It’s just called Two Brothers!”

        2. They ripped that plot off of Bill and Ted’s Bogus Journey.

    2. #5 is a good one. Something anonobot would say.

    3. #1 should probably be “He sticks his fingers into everything” or “He doesn’t mind his own business”.

      This page is a big list of “All your base are belong to us”, from India instead of Japan.

    4. “You have eaten 4 cocks till now since this morning.”

      1. “Eat a bag of cocks, Bollywood!”

      2. But enough about Winston’s mom.

    5. No love for Benny Lava?

  17. As one white supremacist tweeted, “It’s closed captioning for the Jew-blind.”

    That’s so internet.

  18. “Not only do we need to strengthen [Social Security’s] long-term health, it’s time we finally made Social Security more generous and increased its benefits,” President Obama said Wednesday.

    If it’s true that you gotta spend money to make money, holy shit are we going to make a lot of money.

  19. The home addresses of several hundred German sex workers were leaked in an online map promoted by anti-prostitution nonprofits.

    Free advertising is something you just can’t buy.

    1. Go Pros?

    2. Wouldn’t it be simpler to give them all little gold emblems, say stars, to wear?

  20. In a Thomas Friedman article defending the level of lying Hillary does (it’s okay, because she only lies about herself), there is this:

    Trump told a biker rally in Washington on Sunday: “When you think of the great General Patton and all our generals, they are spinning in their graves when they watch we can’t beat ISIS. ? We are going to knock the hell out of them.” Then, for good measure, he repeated his longstanding call to build a wall along the Mexican border, and when he asked who would pay for it, the crowd shouted in unison: “Mexico!” Trump added, “Not even a doubt.”

    1. Really, not even a doubt? Why hasn’t President Obama been a “real man” and just carpet-bombed ISIS off the face of the earth? Answer: 1.) ISIS is embedded in urban areas, among Iraqi and Syrian civilians, so we can’t carpet-bomb the terrorists without killing all the civilians around them. 2.) If Obama sent the 82nd Airborne into Mosul and wiped out ISIS, after horrific door-to-door fighting, the morning after the battle we would own Mosul, because there is no agreement among Sunni tribes there, let alone the Kurds, Shiites and neighboring Turkey, over who should control Mosul post-ISIS. In other words, we’d be stuck governing it. So Obama is trying to squeeze ISIS with one hand while trying to squeeze Iraqis to come together around a post-ISIS order with the other.

      It’s called being strategic and General Patton would be applauding from his grave.

      1. Obama is such a great military strategery-ist that even Patton would applaud in admiration! It is known.

      2. Pretty sure Patton would have glasses the country if he had his way.

        1. Glassed. Also, not really. He loved troop/tank battles.

          1. Precisely. We’re talking about a man who strongly desired to continue the war after the German surrender by attacking the Soviets.

      3. “When you put your hand into a bunch of goo that years before was your Wookie wife’s vagina, you’ll know what to do!”

      4. General Patton would have been spinning in his grave if he ever had to take orders from a black man. And he wanted to rearm the Huns to go after the mongoloids.

      5. It’s called being strategic and General Patton would be applauding from his grave.

        Patton was a piker compared to Obama. He couldn’t possibly wrap his head around the 11 dimensional chess that Obama engages in while he’s eating his breakfast.

        1. The non-interventionism on display in this thread is huuuuuge!

  21. A California bill would put copyright and trademark protections on state records

    It’s official. The thugs who claim to represent everyone are their own syndicate.

  22. Last night I was at my daughter’s talent show. As I sat there and looked around I realized…

    DO THESE PEOPLE KNOW I’M RUFUS?!

    Off to the mechanic.

    1. So… what’s your daughter’s talent?

      1. She tells an amazing version of “The Aristocrats.”

        1. I hope it’s not like Sarah Silverman’s version.

          1. Rufus The Monocled Derp Slayer raped me.

      2. Not sure.

        1. Why come you have no tattoo?

  23. The former Drug Enforcement Administration agents who secretly ran a New Jersey strip club are on trial this week.

    Titty bars are illegal in Jerksey now?

    1. I’ve tried to explain to people that the cigarette bans are never actually about public safety. They’re about control. The busybody motherfuckers on the right that think it’s icky and the left – they just like to control everything everyone does.

      The e-cig thing, in a rational world, would wake everyone up to this fact. Because there is absolutely zero reason to think these things are bad, especially in the “second hand” way.

      1. As California goes…

  24. ‘Pimps and Hos’ Math Test Earns Eighth Grade Teacher a Time Out

    According to parents of kids at Cranford Burns Middle School in Mobile, the students were shocked after reading questions like these:

    “Tyrone knocked up 4 girls in the gang. There are 20 girls in his gang. What is the exact percentage of girls Tyrone knocked up?”

    “Pedro got 6 years for murder. He also got $10,000 for the hit. If his common-law wife spends $100 of his hit money per month, how much money will be left when he gets out?”

    Dwayne pimps 3 ho’s. If the price is $85 per trick, how many tricks per day must each ho turn to support Dwayne’s $800 per day crack habit?

    1. The parents should be asking, “Did you give the correct answers?”

    2. I’m shocked too. Pedro only get six years for murder? Talk about a revolving-door justice system.

      1. Not only that, but Pedro spends $800 a day on *crack*??? The attraction of crack is that it’s cheap.

        1. It’s a math test, so let’s do the math. Let’s say a hit of crack is $10, and I’ve heard the high lasts about 15 minutes. So that’s $40 an hour. At $800, Dwayne is high 20 hours a day. Damn, Dwayne, when do you even have time to sleep?

          1. ok I actually lol’d

          2. Real gangstas are up 24/7, cause real gangstas never sleep – Ghetto Boys

        2. I thought the attraction was that it gets you high.

          1. Well, I meant the attraction when compared to other drugs.

  25. Re SS. Isn’t it bankrupted? If so, why in the world is this guy calling to expand it? Strikes me as willingly irresponsible.

    1. Isn’t this the perfect time for him to do it though? You get to be Santa Claus who gave all those geezers extra money. Let the next guy be the Scrooge who has to try to get it back.

      You can always say, that things were fine when you left. Not sure what that next jackass did to fuck it up.

    2. Like all welfare programs it’s a bribe of stolen money meant to cement the left’s hold on power.

      1. ^^^THIS^^^

    3. This whole last year of his term has been him burning one bridge after another, going out in a blaze of glory.

      1. He’s been a complete piece of shit in his presidency up until this point and I wouldn’t expect him to stop being a piece of shit now.

    4. All about his legacy. I’m pretty sure he was not terrible about SS until now; he had scaled back benefits or raised the age to qualify for benefits a few years ago, didn’t he?

    5. “SS. Isn’t it bankrupted?”

      Janet will just run the printing press faster!

      or

      We aren’t bankrupted enough, cracker!

  26. “The science is uncertain,” Steven Nissen, a leading expert on cardiovascular medicine told USA Today this week

  28. New praying mantis named after Ruth Bader Ginsburg

    Researchers at The Cleveland Museum of Natural History on Wednesday said they were deeming a new species as the llomantis ginsburgae, named after Ginsburg because of her “relentless fight for gender equality” and out of “appreciation” of her jabots, the neck accessories that she frequently dons.

    The insects’ neck plates are similar to them, the authors said.

    Ginsburg was the second ever women nominated to the court, and she is one of three serving today.

    1. Those things eat faces

      1. So does Ginsburg, though, so it’s even more appropriate.

          1. I’m pretty sure that doesn’t work on mantises.

      2. Cool! Nature rocks!

      3. BTW. I hate those things. Find them all over the place.

        1. They’re one of the good ones… They eat massive amounts of the bad ones.

    2. FTA:

      “As a feminist biologist, I often questioned why female specimens weren’t used to diagnose most species,” Brannoch said in a statement. “It is my hope that our work not only sets a precedent in taxonomy but also underscores the need for scientists to investigate and equally consider both sexes in other scientific investigations.”

      *eyeroll*

      1. Has she not heard of the anglerfish?

      2. I tuned out at “feminist biologist”. Looks like they got to STEM fields after all.

    3. Her “relentless fight for gender equality” is why they named a species where the females eat the males after copulation after her.

      And people wonder why people think feminism isn’t actually about equality…

    1. I posted this last night, but the Daily Mail had photos of the police response. It is Columbine all over again until it isn’t.

      1. law enforcement flooded campus and began hunting for suspects

        What could *possibly* go wrong?

    2. Show of force. Works for the Sith.

  29. 6 eat cookies at church, later test positive for marijuana

    Police say six Indiana churchgoers who were hospitalized after eating cookies given to them by a fellow congregant after Mass later tested positive for THC, the psychoactive component in marijuana.

    Police are sending a cookie for analysis from the batch distributed May 22 at St. John the Apostle Church in Ellettsville, 50 miles southwest of Indianapolis.

    1. A gift from the most high?

      1. Now we know where AC goes to church.

  30. In other news, Trump called Hillary a big bag of dicks and Hillary said Donald can eat a big bag of dicks and everybody is applauding them for elevating the tone of the campaign. I am going to be sadly disappointed in this once-great nation if both of these people don’t wind up hanging by their ankles from a bridge being pelted with bricks sometime before the election.

    1. Sadly disappointed won’t even come close to describing how you’ll feel when one of those assholes is the president.

  31. Why does the left hate science?

    Yes, progressives love pure science and civil liberties and all that. These myths simply cannot be dismantled fast enough.

  32. A Chill Wind Blows

    This isn’t the first time he has used base language to attack reporters with whom he disagreed or was annoyed. The New York Times has collected a comprehensive list of his Twitter insults (often waged against journalists), which simply boggles the mind. (I am among those he has accused of “dishonest reporting.”)

    But even that isn’t what’s most troubling. What’s troubling is that under a Trump administration, the First Amendment itself ? either in spirit or in law, or both ? could be severely weakened. What we have to worry about is a chill wind blowing from the White House.

    This is no small thing. Our constitutionally protected freedom of speech and freedom of the press are pillars that make this country great, and different.

    1. The right, on the other hand, has no such free speech rights, because Hate Speech and Citizen’s United.

    2. Lol. He talks back. Wah.

    3. As opposed to Obama who was just a tireless supporter of journalistic freedom.

    4. Freedom of speech means the press are above criticism.

    5. He accused someone in the media of dishonest reporting? THAT MUST BE A LIE

    6. Obama prosecuted more whistleblowers and reporters than anyone.

  33. Good news for you fatties: Science shows you can be overweight and healthy?so why do doctors worship the scale?

    It’s time for doctors to stop using weight to judge the health of the people under their care. To do so is both lazy and ineffective. A recent analysis published in the International Journal of Obesity found that health risks for about 75 million Americans are misclassified by their weight category. That study measured metabolic health by looking at six indicators: blood pressure, blood sugar, insulin resistance, cholesterol, triglycerides, and C-reactive protein (a sign of cellular stress). By all those criteria, researchers found that 29% of obese people and 47% of overweight people are healthy. Meanwhile, over 30% of normal-weight people are at risk for diabetes and heart disease.

    “Dad-bods and the women who love them.”

    1. “Dad-bods and the women who love them.”

      Worked for me!

      1. Science backs it up, too.

        1. [nasty old saxophone music plays]

    2. Doctors don’t wanna see a bunch of fatties around more than anybody else does. Only, their advice actually has a chance of being taken. Sounds like a public service to me.

      1. Doctors don’t wanna see a bunch of fatties around more than anybody else does.

        That’s not strictly true. There is a poster here that loves the fatties. To keep things anonymous we’ll just call him “John”.

        1. Chubby chicks need love too…

    3. So, 53% of overweight people, and fully 71% of obese people are unhealthy, compared to only 30% of normal-weight people by the same criteria? Seems significant to me.

    4. Oh God, the picture.

    5. That study measured metabolic health by looking at six indicators: blood pressure, blood sugar, insulin resistance, cholesterol, triglycerides, and C-reactive protein (a sign of cellular stress).

      So they didn’t actually study mortality or health outcomes.

      1. Check your body-normative privilege, shitlord!

        1. I’m on the other side of normal. Check your famine resistance privilege, fatty.

      2. Rationalizing unhealthiness using “science” is absurd.

  34. Understanding the esoteric symbols of Trump’s online alt-right army.

  35. Judge Presiding Over Trump University Case Is Member Of La Raza Lawyers Group

    United States District Court Judge Gonzalo Curiel, the man presiding over the class-action lawsuit against Trump University, is a member of the La Raza Lawyers of San Diego and oversaw the gift of a law school scholarship to an illegal alien.

    In his 2011 judicial questionnaire to become a federal judge, Curiel revealed his history with La Raza. GotNews.com originally reported this Tuesday, and The Daily Caller has independently verified.[…]

    In addition, Curiel served on the selection committee in 2014 for the La Raza Lawyers of San Diego Scholarship Fund. Six of seven of the recipients of these scholarships ranging from $1500 to $1600 were born in Central America. One of them, Ricardo Elorza, described himself as “undocumented.”[…]

    “Our organization has not been involved in organizing any of the anti-Trump rallies, much less encouraged our members or anyone to participate in any illegal activity,” La Raza Lawyers of San Diego told TheDC in a statement Wednesday. “We help empower Latino attorneys, judges and law students, and provide services to the greater local Latino community.”

    1. I’m sure he’s totally impartial in Trump’s case.

    2. I’m sure the cosmos here would be fine with a judge being a membe of The Anglo Race Lawyers Association whose stated reson for existence was supporting and promoting the ‘Anglo Race’.

      1. Yeah, lots of big fans of La Raza here.

      2. Eventually, whites are going to start being tribal like everyone else once self-preservation starts to seem more important than social signalling color blindness.

    3. That’s almost too perfect. Those are the folks that want to “make California Mexico again”, right?

  36. The Anti-P.C. Vote

    Trump’s successful deployment of the issue of immigration to mobilize voters raises this question: Why is his opposition to immigrants and Mexicans in particular so resonant when immigration liberalization ostensibly has majority support in most polls?

    Research conducted by Lefteris Jason Anastasopoulos, a lecturer and data science fellow at Berkeley’s School of Information, provides one answer: Support for immigration “may be greatly overestimated.”

    In an email, Anastasopoulos writes that

    polls conducted by large survey organizations never ask about immigration in geographic context. Instead they ask questions about whether respondents support increasing immigration or granting amnesty for undocumented immigrants in the “United States” overall rather than, say, Dayton, Ohio, or Wilmington, North Carolina, places where immigration has been rapidly increasing over the past few years. This kind of abstract framing tends to push respondents toward giving more “politically correct” answers to standard poll questions about immigration.

    1. The polls also seem to have a tendency to conflate “immigration” with “illegal immigration”.

    2. From what I’ve seen, they also take anyone answering that they want ‘reform’ of the immigration system to mean they support the policy of Democrats.

  37. “Not only do we need to strengthen [Social Security’s] long-term health, it’s time we finally made Social Security more generous and increased its benefits,” President Obama said Wednesday.

    “We also need to strengthen America’s strategic unicorn reserves, and finally finish building that tower to Heaven!”

  38. MSNBC’s year of standing up straight
    It’s a new push for the network, away from the Lean Forward years.

    In what is perhaps the network’s most overt symbol of the new tone, however, is another ad that will run in some conservative and mainstream outlets. The ad features some of MSNBC’s conservative and Republican contributors ? like radio host Hugh Hewitt, GOP consultant Steve Schmidt and former RNC chairman Michael Steele ? with a cheeky message: “People might start accusing us of leaning too far to the right.”

    Griffin cast the rebranding as just one more stage in MSNBC’s “evolution.”

    “MSNBC will turn 20 this year on July 15,” he said. “There have been so many evolutions, and look if you don’t evolve, in any medium, you’re going to lose. So I think we’ve been in a process of evolution and I feel very good about what we’re doing.”

    1. Nobody wants to watch Rachel Maddow, even if she’s biting her tongue hard enough to draw blood.

      1. I prefer Rachael Maddow’s overt bias to Anderson Coopers stealth bias. They’re both cunts however.

    2. Too late, they’ve made their bed and the conservatives aren’t going to forget it. All this will do is drive off the easily offended progs.

  39. Not only do we need to strengthen [Social Security’s] long-term health, it’s time we finally made Social Security more generous and increased its benefits

    Mutually exclusion, how does it work?

    1. Take away logic and accountability!!

  40. “Not only do we need to strengthen [Social Security’s] long-term health, it’s time we finally made Social Security more generous and increased its benefits,” President Obama said Wednesday.”

  41. Highfive.

    A 24-year-old middle school teacher accused of having a months-long affair with a 13-year-old student ? who got her pregnant ? turned herself in Wednesday afternoon.

    Alexandria Vera was booked on charges of continuous sexual abuse of a child and released on $100,000 bail ? a day after Houston police issued a warrant for the raven-haired English teacher’s arrest.

    She met ? and fell in love with ? the boy last summer at Stovall Middle School in Houston, according to court documents obtained by ABC 13.

    After the boy, now 14, skipped class one day, he sent Vera a message on Instagram, asking her for her number ? and if they could hang out alone, according to KPRC Houston.

      1. Unfortunately, this is not a joke.

        1. It’s a joke, but not a funny one.

          1. More Patriarchy-white-male-privilege, I guess.

            1. It’s just evening out the monumental privilege gap between this 14-year-old boy and his 24-year-old rapist* in advance of his becoming an adult.

    1. When are we going to teach women not to rape? *sobs in gluten-free cornflakes*

  43. Nanoparticles may be key to universal vaccine against cancer

    Scientists have created a vaccine which could prove effective against different types of cancers. Composed of nanoparticles, it creates a potent immune response against tumours.

    For years, researchers have worked to produce vaccines against cancers. The most effective approach so far has been to design preventive vaccines – for example the HPV vaccine against human papilloma virus which can cause cervical cancer.

    However, it has been difficult to develop effective vaccination against tumours that are already in the body.

    This is mostly because cancer cells are in many ways similar to ‘normal’ cells, so even if an immune response is initiated by a vaccine, the immune system may avoid attacking cells it views as its own.

    The latest study, published in Nature, proposes a novel approach based on nanoparticles carrying tumour RNA -directly targeting cancerous cells.

  44. Disney worker went on booze-fuelled rampage attacking police officers and yelling ‘F*** Disney’

    Houston, from the Coryton area of Cardiff, was fired on the spot and kicked out of the office. He then bumped into police officers dealing with a possible suicidal man teetering on the edge of a building. Houston kicked a police van and then attacked the officers, swinging his arms like a windmill. They used CS gas on him but it had little effect, and he was eventually caught after running from the scene.

    It’s a small world, after all.

    1. He then bumped into police officers dealing with a possible suicidal man teetering on the edge of a building.

      Disney is the American Foxconn.

  45. What does it cost to make a running shoe?

    Long piece, complete with graphs, and, you have to disable adblock, but it was informative.

    1. Why do people do research like this?

      Wait until someone at The Nation or Mother Jones sees this, and they will demand a windfall profits tax on the running shoe industry. It’ll become an election issue in no time,

      1. I always have to wonder if people writing for The Nation earnestly believe that Nike et al. are making thousands percent profit on their product line. Why would we produce anything but shoes if that were the case? If Nike really were realizing profits several times their investment, that (speculative) Nation writer should quit his job immediately and go into business producing vastly inferior knockoffs and selling them for merely twice or three times his investment, and become a shoe mogul. Why doesn’t this happen?

      2. I don’t always run for President, but when I do I wear Nike shoes. Named after the goddess of victory!

    2. ‘ The Yeezy Boost costs $10 to make and adidas sells it for $350. adidas makes a $340 margin’.

      I built a PC for ~$800. I could have bought a Mac with half the specs for two grand, and I’d have a pretty aluminum laptop to tote around to coffee shops. But I went with a PC tower for gaming instead.

      1. My coffee shop is right next to a yoga studio. The extra $1K is worth it. I’d pay at least another $5K if Apple could add a camera that digitally removed yoga pants from the picture.

    3. Just one more reason you should run barefoot or at least with as minimalist a foot covering as possible.

      This is my “I don’t own a TV” elitist brag. Had a friend years ago get me into this. My feet feel so much better. I use the Xero shoes mostly.

      1. I think I must have a bunch of Tarahumara blood in me:

        Then there’s the secretive Tarahumara tribe, the best long-distance runners in the world. These are a people who live in basic conditions in Mexico, often in caves without running water, and run with only strips of old tyre or leather thongs strapped to the bottom of their feet. They are virtually barefoot.
        Come race day, the Tarahumara don’t train. They don’t stretch or warm up. They just stroll to the starting line, laughing and bantering, and then go for it, ultra-running for two full days, sometimes covering over 300 miles, non-stop. For the fun of it. One of them recently came first in a prestigious 100-mile race wearing nothing but a toga and sandals. He was 57 years old.
        When it comes to preparation, the Tarahumara prefer more of a Mardi Gras approach. In terms of diet, lifestyle and training technique, they’re a track coach’s nightmare. They drink like New Year’s Eve is a weekly event, tossing back enough corn-based beer and homemade tequila brewed from rattlesnake corpses to floor an army.
        Unlike their Western counterparts, the Tarahumara don’t replenish their bodies with electrolyte-rich sports drinks. They don’t rebuild between workouts with protein bars; in fact, they barely eat any protein at all, living on little more than ground corn spiced up by their favourite delicacy, barbecued mouse.

        Sure I like squirrels more than mice and technically whiskey is corn mash…

    4. Depends if they’re made by little slave kids.

      Seriously though. I keep trying to buy minimalist shoes only to be repelled by the fact that the shoes containing the least technology cost the most at the store.

      1. Try to check out Xero shoes. I say try because they are almost as douchey as Apple stores about evangelizing barefoot running.

        And yeah, you will pay around $30 for some rubber soles and a bunch of string. Still, I wear mine all the time because they are the greatest shoe I have. I ran a 5K in Chicago last week in them. (not fast, and sure some youngsters thought I was speed walking but my brain thought it was running)

        1. Yeah that looks interesting. Though a thong would likely annoy me and ones with straps cost twice as much.

          1. When thinking about the cost of Xero shoes, consider that they’re likely to last much longer than even the high-end running shoes. It’s a big flap of rubber with string, and the string is easily replaced with para-cord.

            I started running in 2009, and I’ve never had a pair of shoes last more than a year. My Xero sandals are a bit worn down, but they show no signs of becoming trash.

            Plus, the stares you get from people on the sidewalk are pretty hilarious.

  46. Now robots can have KIDS: Researchers create machines that ‘mate’ over wifi to create a 3D printed baby

    They learn through motivation, the researchers explain, and in this case, they are motivated to walk toward a red light. When the two robots come together, they are then able to communicate and even mate.

    “Red light”, eh?

    Well, it *is* International Whore’s Day.

    1. “Uh. Take it, bitch, Tell me what wattage it is.”

      “Damn, girl… you got some diodes on you.”

      “My amperage brings all the bots to the yard.”

      “This area has been degaussed. You may proceed.”

      1. Never stick it in 220. That’s my motto.

      2. “My amperage brings all the bots to the yard.”

        That one is the best.

    2. The problem with doing this is the offspring will only have a single expansion slot, so he’ll never be able to bend without losing all his memory.

    3. Is there a turing type test for sexbots yet? Asking for a friend.

      1. It isn’t truly sentient if it orphans the balls.

      2. When they say no? Wouldn’t that be about as human-like as a sexbot could get?

        And when sexbots do pass the Turing test, will older models that are upgraded suddenly decide they were “raped” back when they were unable to consent due to insufficient system resources and press charges against past users?

    4. Sounds like a very risky way to mate. Suppose some hacker gets hold of a robot’s genome and shares it over the internet so anyone can 3D print a new robot with it. The child support claims would never end.

  47. Voters Don’t Believe Clinton, Trump Promises, Quinnipiac University National Poll Finds; No Transgender Rule For Schools, Voters Say

    There is only a small gender gap as American voters say 56 – 36 percent that schools should not be required to allow transgender students to use bathrooms and locker rooms consistent with their own gender identity. Men oppose the requirement 63 – 30 percent, with women opposed 49 – 42 percent.

    Voters 18 to 34 years old are divided as 45 percent support the transgender requirement, with 47 percent opposed.

    The bathroom issue is “very important,” 41 percent of voters say, and 27 percent say it is “somewhat important.”

    1. Nailed it.

      “No matter which candidate you pick, you can cut the cynicism with a knife,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Poll.

    2. The bathroom issue is “very important,” 41 percent of voters say, and 27 percent say it is “somewhat important.”

      I guess that means the media need to keep pushing this more to get those numbers up.

    3. 68% of people just went on the shitlist for having stupid priorities.

      Also I laughed really hard at “Clinton does better on one promise!” followed by noting a whopping 22 percent believe her on the one about affordable college.

  48. A Utah distillery proudly drags the whiskey industry’s dirty little secret out of the shadows

    Whiskey fucked the college lacrosse team?

    . Though High West Master Distiller Brendan Coyle is a distilling wizard and an unabashed whiskey geek who can wax poetically about “refraction columns” and “reflux ratio” ad nauseam, perhaps his greatest skills lie in blending. Holding a Masters in Brewing and Distilling Sciences from Heriot-Watt University in Edinburgh, Coyle is on a mission to open people’s minds to the importance of the tradition that has been honored for centuries in Scotland, where distillers trade their unique products with one another to tweak flavor profiles. “In other parts of the world, blending has always had [a] level of respect?. So we’re on this push to define blending and show why it’s such a great thing,” he explains.

    Ohhhh. Well, okay.

    1. distillers trade their unique products with one another to tweak flavor profiles

      Euphemism…?

    2. Umm. That’s neither dirty nor a secret to anyone with much interest in whiskey. If there is a dirty secret (and it’s not very secret either) it is that a lot of brands, even premium ones, add caramel color to their products.

      1. the open secret is that people who like whiskey have lost all their taste buds and their sense of smell.

        1. Oh, shut up. You don’t like anything good.

    3. I thought Scotch in a can was the whisky industry’s shameful secret.

      “Here you are, Milord, would you care for some potato chips?”

      “Naw, Jeeves, just turn on the TV for me, set it to the [belch] NASCAR race.”

      “Very good, sir. And would sir like me to bring his trousers?”

      “No, I’m quite comfortable in my underwear, Jeeves.”

      1. I object!

        This shows a complete misunderstanding of the nature of Bertie Wooster and his relationship with Jeeves!

  49. Happy International Whore’s Day!

    Or as I call it, “Congressional Appreciation Day.”

    BOOM!

    1. Why would you compare a whore to a member of Congress? That is sooo disrespectful of whores, who at least provide some pleasure when they fuck you.

      1. ” … There are some things a whore just won’t do.”

      2. ^THIS.

        The congressional experience is a$$ rape, not pleasurable sex.

        1. It costs extra to NOT get a donkey punch.

        2. “The congressional experience is a$$ rape, not pleasurable sex.”

          STEVE SMITH NEED MORE EXPLANATION

      3. They provide a desirable service for a mutually agreed-upon price. No resemblance to Congress whatsoever.

  50. King Tut’s dagger made of iron from a meteorite

    A dagger buried alongside King Tutankhamun was made with iron from a meteorite, according to research published in the journal Meteoritics & Planetary Science.

    Using X-ray fluorescence, a team of researchers, led by Daniela Comelli of the Polytechnic University of Milan, analyzed the blade and found that it has a similar composition to metallic meteorites.

  51. I looked out my window this morning and I see a giant snowball. And its not even melting in the heat. Rubin not knifing libertarians? The world really has gone mad.

  52. It somewhat confuses me that Conservative Democrats or Social Conservative Republicans still vote for their respective parties without throwing up afterwards. As for Independents I suppose voting for the lessor of to evils has become a way of life. Our founding fathers never envisioned what we laughingly call politics as usual of today. Our country was set for a for a very limited Federal government and almost immediately opposing forces tried to destroy it and unfortunately largely succeeded in doing just that. I know there are those that disagree with me but answer me one question. How can someone say like Harry Reid be in politics their whole life making about $150,000 a year, while living in one of the most expensive cities in America and become a multi millionaire. Before I get a ton of hate mail I am aware that Republicans are just as guilty. I just use Harry Reid because I think he is a waste of good air. I don’t know how to turn things around but I am pretty sure that by voting both both parties out of office for a couple of election cycle would be a start.

      Because insider trading laws apply equally to everyone, except members of Congress.

  53. Sen. Elizabeth Warren: “I saw at a young age that one bad break can turn a family’s financial life upside down. And it has affected everything in my life since then. My parents and I were all afraid of being poor – really poor. My daddy’s response was to never talk about money or what might happen if it ran out. My response was to study contracts, finance, economics, to plan, to have a goal, to work on that goal. To learn everything I could. I always poked at the things that scared me most.

    Too honest, Elizabeth Warren. Too honest. Governing out of fear is not a good plan.

  54. Understanding the esoteric symbols of Trump’s online alt-right army.

    This is so fucking stupid.

    I hate having to preface, “I don’t support Trump”, but for the love of God, his critics are fucking retarded.

    No = a guy who wins large majorities across wide-swaths of the electorate during his campaign is NOT supported exclusively by a “Racist Army” Online. And saying so makes you look stupid. Are some people online racist? of course. And do they support Trump? undoubtedly. That’s not the same thing and its painful to have to point that out.

    Its the kind of blanket dismissal i’d hear retards like Sam Seder say about Libertarians. (*which i did last night, while he chatted w/ Mark Ames). Which is maybe unsurprising coming from ENB. Playing the “Racist” card is basically saying you’re not smart enough to point out any of the other myriad flaws that Trump supporters have.

    1. Actually, if you spend some time on Twitter, you’ll see there’s quite a huge swath of these alt-right Trump supporters with exactly this nasty viewpoint. And the article is talking about online, not in day-to-day life. More accurate to say social media though.

  55. I dont see links ony android. Weird.

  56. “of Trump’s online alt-right army.”?

    Look, man.

    Trump’s a sack of crap, okay?

    But “some neo-Nazis who also happen to like him” are not his problem.

    I’ve seen nothing to suggest he courts, encourages, or supports them or any form of anti-Semitism, or wants them on his side.

    They’re not “his alt-right army”.

    They’re not his.

  57. I am making $95/hour working from home. I never thought that it was legitimate but my best friend is earning $12 thousand a month by working online, that was really surprising for me, she recommended me to try it. just try it out on the following website…
