You guys, the detailed distinctions and conceptual maneuvering in the concurring/dissenting parts of SCOTUS's Phillips cake decision are AMAZING

"The embattled Cabinet head said he's investigating what he called 'subversion.'"

Good riddance. It's a lousy version control system.

Really didn't expect the genre of "quadruped robot opening door" to get even more terrifying this week, but they really kicked it up another notch.

I love that we are this far into "thoughts&prayers" being an instant self-parody and yet the clueless (and mainly old+conservative) talking heads are still using this dogeared page from their worn-out politician's phrasebook.
Trying to get on the leaderboard, no luck so far. "B" key seems to be broken.

Thought experiment: assume the US continues to see ~2 school shootings per week[1] through the rest of the year while congress continues to do nothing about it[2]. But suppose that somehow we could save them all up, and unleash all ~75 of them in October. Would that make a difference in the midterm elections?

If so, what does that say about the state of our democracy?

Still seems like a reasonable thing to count.

Serious question: is the there a chance this is the single coolest thing anyone has ever done?

I mean it's not as cool as putting Armstrong on the moon or putting Curiosity on Mars. But it's much more plausibly described as "something one individual decided to do, pretty much for the hell of it, and personally made sure it happened".

Any ideas for other deeds we could compare this to? Maybe "Alexander the Great conquering most of the known world"?
