Eh....I think this is only an issue because oversensitive liberal white folk who can’t use those words don’t understand using words like that to make jokes about yourself or just saying the words in general without censoring ourselves because we can. Remember all the clutched pearls over the president saying ‘nigger’?…
Yep. Complete with articles of unsupported faith and moralistic punishments.
Many years ago I came to the realization that our economic system is basically our modern religion -- complete with a class of “priests” who make a point of keeping it all obscure and mysterious so the rest of us have to just go along with what they say.
Yes. This exactly! The headline alone is horrendously condescending, and the rest of the article doesn’t really do much to make up for it. If Ria Misra doesn’t personally like Bill Nye, then...that’s certainly a choice. But the guy has done more for Science literacy and Science advocacy SINCE his show went off the…
Aw man, I never knew that fact about Asimov... Well that just sucks. I thought he might have been a decent human being especially after the subjects of many of his novels.
Also Oswald killed Kennedy, Shakespeare wrote Shakespeare, 9/11 was not an inside job, the UFO at Roswell was just a spy satellite, and the Queen of England is not a lizard person. Just thought I should get that off the table before the crazy people show up.
these nuts used Gizmodo as a source for an article claiming they were silenced by facebook too.
Websites like Natural News accuse the Centers for Disease Control of orchestrating a global conspiracy around the Zika virus. Specifically, they claim that the illnesses and birth defects that people are seeing have nothing to do with the virus, but instead have something to do with “chemicals” and vaccines. But…

Namely, Maher said that conservatives are consistently more anti-science than liberals. That’s bullshit.
Peter Dinklage as Newt please.
Everything Valentine knows about the Mysterious Stranger is in a note under one of the beds in his office. It’s hilarious.
No surprises to me. We’ve got the confrontational “No, you’re an idiot” kind like Dawkins and then we’ve got “No, I know this is going to be an intellectual Vietnam with you so I really don’t want to talk about it” kind like me.
That was intense? That was Preacher? There’s a preacher hurting someone and someone with an Irish brogue. No Saint of Killers, no Arseface, no vampires. Can’t have Preacher without those things.
Some think that being poor is simple. You don’t have enough money to buy a lot of stuff, so you’re forced to buy less stuff. But that’s not really how it works. When you’re broke, you can’t do all the little things that will improve your budget over the long run. It actually costs more to be poor.
Magical thinking will be our downfall...
The best thing about Annihilator is the subtextual revelation that legendary comics writer Grant Morrison worries if his work is any good.
In another depressing display of scientific illiteracy, several Republican candidates decided to take jabs at vaccines last night, including Ben Carson–you know, the guy with an actual medical license.
The lesson may as well be that if you try to get a bunch of people on the internet together to accomplish something, there will always be an enormous amount of people there trying to ruin it because they haven’t anything better to do.
