They don’t care about their children, or else they wouldn’t, for example, be doing everything possible to drive the world towards a climate catastrophe just so oil execs can make a little more short-term profit. Read more

I feel like that’s what they did in Breonna Taylor’s case. The minimum charges possible for the obvious “bad apple” of the bunch, and the others walk free. But I think that case also shows that the public will no longer accept such pitiful little scraps. Everyone involved in that BS endangerment charge knew it wasn’t Read more

His “Platinum Plan”?  What, is his latest scam a credit card?

Trump doesn’t even pay back his bank loans, so I don’t know why anyone would believe in some investment promise.

White, silver, 3 greys, black, and Antimatter Blue is so dark that it probably looks black unless your truck is clean and in direct sunlight. That just leaves 2 reds, an orange, and a blue as the actual colours, not counting this new First Edition-only blue. How do they not offer a Bronco in yellow?

There’s even a pee tube.  Amazing.

Because lots of people will demand a 3.75" scale starship but not pay $350 for it. And while they have plenty of money to make the tooling, they aren’t running a charity. They want to make sure they make a profit off their investment. Read more

It always amazes me how hard and how often these morons Streisand themselves.

The GOP suddenly cares about the oppression of Muslims and corporate accountability?  They must be really desperate to satisfy Donnie’s anti-China stance.

The Founding Fathers created the Electoral College because they thought that the average voter was too stupid and disinterested to be trusted with a straight popular vote. They were worried that some demagogue would come along and rile up the populace, get elected, and proceed to wreck the country. The electors were Read more

I’ve said this all along. These systems just encourage shitty drivers by picking up the slack, and the shitty drivers compensate by leaning on them even harder. They keep getting shittier, until the systems reach their limit and fail, and then those drivers are even less able to respond to the situation. Now all the Read more

I’ve been using Open Office for like a decade now.  Never once been unable to do something I needed to do or wished I had some Microsoft-exclusive special feature.

When I started college, the new version of Office had recently switched to a radically different UI that looked like absolute shit and made zero sense to me. Not wanting to pay money for a dumpster fire, I downloaded the freeware alternative Open Office, which had a UI very similar to old-school MS Office.  Never Read more

We’ve forgotten far more than we currently know. There’s entire cultures that haven’t been rediscovered yet. We’ve only identified a fraction of the world’s archaeological sites. There’s numerous artifacts/technologies/feats of engineering that we either can’t replicate, or can’t explain with the limited Read more

I’m well aware of the amount of BS in shows like CSI. Ballistics isn’t perfect, but I don’t buy that it’s so shitty they couldn’t match any of the bullets. Nor is that the only tool. Trajectories, for example, can tell a lot. But even if they truly can’t figure it out, those cops are still all 3 guilty of firing Read more

My freshman roommate was obsessed with #greeklife. He even started smoking so that he “would have something in common he could do with his brothers.” He was also a tremendous slob and came back from every party with some kind of cold or flu.  The guy was a scourge on the whole dorm.

Grant also claimed that Mejia-Beal is “afraid to come into the district,” maybe because “he’s afraid of the reaction that people might give him.”

Hankinson already had a reputation as a corrupt POS. He was probably selected to be “sacrificed” in a half-assed attempt to say “see, we’re doing SOMETHING to hold cops accountable!”
