Maybe this will lead to fascists repairing roads as well to show up the anarchists and pretty soon they'll be completing on-ramp work and stuff. This might be Trump's big infrastructure plan.

A space launch like you never seen before. No simulated video, this was all taken live using telescopes on land and cameras mounted on the first stage.

As an aside, the insect reporting procedure at my workplace involves filing like 5 pages of forms. This must be done for each bug identified, and may require formal study.

Also we had our annual May day contest again. This year 25 chosen winners got an opportunity to meet with various members of our law enforcement community, and will continue having periodic interactions with them over the next few months. Hopefully getting a chance to discuss their ideology with different judges, staff members, and Bubba the violent skinhead of cell block Q6 will help us all come to a better understanding of each other's unique morality and social outlook.

Had a conference with the company commander and the fire department, showed them the burned out bug zapper, wall, and outlet, offhandedly blamed it as part of a cimex terrorist attack, then spent twenty minutes explaining cimex isn't a country in the Middle East.

The School Day Has Been Altered wrote:
May the fourth is a day for Star Wars fans of all stripes to celebrate their fandom. Unfortunately, one high school student's attempt to celebrate led to some fairly severe reactions. A student at a Wisconsin high school wore a Darth Vader costume to class today, but when he was spotted by a concerned parent, the outfit caused them to get spooked and call it in as a potential threat, resulting in the school being evacuated.

All of this took place this morning at Ashwaubenon High School in Ashwaubenon, Wisconsin, a suburb of Green Bay. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the student who arrived dressed as Darth Vader raised flags because he entered the school via the back, with the Vader mask over his face, and there was concern that the rest of the costume "looked like he might be wearing a bulletproof vest or a flak jacket." The person who saw the unnamed teenager then called the police and the school was put on lockdown before being evacuated. Now that the dust is settled, the police are confirming that this was simply "an innocent mistake."

This is one of those situations that luckily gets to be funny because there was nothing else going on. As crazy as it sounds, if somehow this was an actual threat, it would have certainly been scary. Considering that there was once a shooting at a movie theater during a Batman movie by somebody who felt a connection to The Joker, we can't entirely discount the possibility that there could have been something here.

However, since there wasn't a real threat here, just a guy who liked Star Wars, the entire thing comes off like a serious overreaction. While May the fourth has long been a day that people celebrate Star Wars it's not like it's any sort of official holiday. Lots of people aren't really aware of it. If they were, the reaction might not have been quite so severe, but maybe the worried parent did know what day it was and simply wanted to be safe as opposed to sorry.

We hope the student in the Darth Vader costume is doing ok. Clearly, he just wanted to celebrate Star Wars and have some fun. He certainly wasn't expecting to cause his entire school to freak the **** out. It wasn't his fault that he spooked people, so hopefully, nobody gets him in too much trouble. He's likely embarrassed enough as it is. Still, it does go to show the true power of Darth Vader. Everybody was terrified of him, so clearly, the costume successfully did its job. Maybe next May the fourth the school will have some specific guidelines to avoid seeing this happen again.

At least he came as Vader. Stormtrooper with a laser rifle gets expelled and learns first hand why mandatory minimum sentences aren't necessarily a good idea.

You have to give them credit. They must be REALLY confident that everyone will love their health care come 2018 because the GOP owns it 100% and clips of them celebrating with beer and singing will be in every competing House campaign commercial.

Doesn't that 20-ish million number include those who would voluntarily drop their insurance once no longer having the mandate?

Edit:
According to Kai Ryssdal on NPR on my drive home just now. 24 million either losing, or chosing to no longer have, health insurance.

To be clear, I think choosing to not have health insurance is an issue itself that needs to be addressed. But I just think it's a bit dishonest to tout the number as people losing healthcare. Because it implies something different than simple choosing not to have health insurance because you have the option not to have it.

Speaking of the Senate, Cindy McCain (wife of John McCain) is poised to take a job at the State Department. A cushy gig too, since they don't really know what they'll do with her:
AP wrote:
WASHINGTON (AP) — Cindy McCain, the wife of Republican Arizona Sen. John McCain, is expected to be offered a prominent role in the Trump administration’s State Department, two individuals familiar with the discussions said Thursday.

Although it wasn’t clear what position she would fill, one possibility under discussion is McCain serving as an ambassador-at-large in Washington, focusing on a specific issue such as human trafficking, according to the administration official and another individual familiar with the talks. McCain, a philanthropist and global humanitarian activist, has been a vocal advocate for victims of human trafficking for several years.

So I decided I'd watch the new Bill Nye show on Netflix



How the actual **** did we go from talking about water vapor to this? You know, every time Joe Sixpack uses a word like "snowflake" or posts a retarded meme on Facebook crying about trans people and public bathrooms I roll my eyes. The whole idea of the millennial college student who needs a safe space was just supposed to be some absurd strawman that represented 0.00001% of the actual population.

Then I see **** like this, and I start to wonder. This is not some confused tween girl on Tumblr who's going through a phase. This is ******* Bill Nye in association with a whole lot of other grown-*** adults producing this show.

All this time I've been laughing at my wife's family of ignorant backwater hicks and the inanity behind the last election and everything before and after while they become progressively less reasonable and more open and proud about their willful stupidity. Then something like this comes along like some horrible dump truck of validity for them. It doesn't make them right. **** no. It's just starting to look like a race to see who can be the most retarded, and everyone is winning.

Admit it. You didn't even try to understand.

If I were to say there was a complaint to be made, it is that there are no more reasonable people, and perhaps there never were any to begin with. --that the same people who make compelling arguments pertaining to subjects like climate change and gun control can also be so profoundly ignorant. It is becoming increasingly difficult to find opinions in people that aren't extreme right or extreme left. It's like you can't be conservative without being some raving authoritarian neo-fascist, and you can't be liberal without becoming some ridiculous social-justice warrior. It is as if the entire world has gone insane-- and to say that just feels like such an understatement. Just look at who the president is and really let that sink in. Look at all of them. Look at their opposition. Look at everyone. It's like a ******* freak show no matter where you turn.

I don't get it, the message is just 'don't hate on gays". You know that's not considered radical anymore, right? That's the mainstream position. I was expecting something about genderfluidity or something controversial in the centre, but this is some weak hash.

The cartoon itself is pretty garbage, but then it is literally propoganda.

Ignorant how? I guess I don't understand whether you disagree with his premise or the execution of his explanation. Are you mad that he believes that sexual and gender preferences are an innate part of your identity or mad that he illustrated this using ice cream cones?

It's not just the cartoon. It is the entire show. The message of that clip was not "don't hate on gays." It was "*** conversion therapy works, and is ok, but only if its in reverse."

I should not have to be pointing this out.

You took one glance at it and assumed it was "don't hate gays." Really? That is the problem in itself. But you are exactly right-- "don't hate gays" is mainstream. It isn't enough to simply not hate gays anymore. It isn't enough to state the obvious, and that is not what they are doing.

Do I need to explain why this is a problem? Do I really need to explain how this type of thing gives validity to people who actually hate gays? --that it makes their otherwise absurd fear seem reasonable when the message of the cartoon is literally "try and convert straight people while deliberately undermining their religion to their face"?

It's not being converted, just persuaded it's ok to loosen up. Vanilla is already ***, as we can see from its neapolitan fantasies. Within their ice cream metaphor, and it is stupid, their actual flavour is supposed to be changed, right? But vanilla is an intrinsic part of neapolitan, and thus vanilla enaging in this orgy isn't a rejection of its vanilla self but an embracing of it. If it changed itself, its flavour, it wouldn't fit in.

They're actually doing the old "all homophobes are actually *****" thing, not a reverse conversion therapy.

Apparently.
The right has been going ape over a couple of his videos talking about sexuality and other stuff dubbed "left wing propaganda." Things like "nobody just wants to be one flavor of ice cream" and "it's the science of feelings" are enough to cause irritation, and there's some other things in his videos lately that have likewise triggered people. Probably should have chosen their words better, but I doubt they got any input on what phrases would provoke a bad reaction from the conservative Christian camp. Since it seems more like the video is there to discredit them and all.

All this is small potatoes, of course, to the fact that it's a horrible video that should have gotten it's creators burned as a sacrifice to the big ice cream cone in the sky long before the public ever saw it.

I realize it isn't a big deal if your perspective is that is only from this video. The thing is. It's not. This kind of sentiment is becoming more and more common. Progressives used to be the voice of reason, but their fragile credibility has been completely destroyed. I'm not in any way being dramatic when I say our country is doomed-- and the blame rests entirely on the laziness and apathy of those who would otherwise might have been able to convince enough people to not let this happen.

If that is hard to understand, think of it this way: We have x number of years, possibly decades of completely unopposed Republican policy to look forward to. Once Trump has had his 8 years, it'll be Ted Cruz, or Newt Gingrich, or some other fucking slob. Every facet of government will be stuffed with backwater hicks like Joe Wilson. Why? Because instead of tearing down real issues like we were in the 90s and 2000s, we are all too busy arguing about whether or not a fucking tranny can use his preferred public toilet-- and when the average Joe Fuckhead goes to vote, that will be the first and probably the only thing he thinks about.

So what you're saying is you would rather have the average Joe ******** to use his uneducated, alternative-fact-driven, knee-jerk vote to influence something that actually matters?

I'm sure that'll end well... Smiley: rolleyes

Maybe. Of course, that's what they said in 2008 about the Democrats.
