" We are a nation in which a great many people believe in their hearts that gay people getting rights are directly responsible for individual tornadoes, and that we will never run out of oil because God simply would not allow something that terrible to happen, and that the modern state of Israel holds value almost exclusively as a chip to be cashed when the time comes, a blood sacrifice to be made that will grant the offerers eternal salvation. This is not exaggeration. We are not making this shit up."

If she believes this, she's very disturbing to have in charge of anything affecting other people. If she doesn't believe it, she's deliberately manipulating and exploiting people with fundamental problems. There is no good way to look at this.

When our new line of limited time sandwiches came out, the world said 'Arbys! Who let the gods out?' Answer: there are no gods. Eat up & die.

This is very, very funny.

You know what I find most upsetting about this? The kids who follow Signe around - they look like nice kids. And yet, in under an hour they turn into a cruel, violent, howling mob. Who comes to her aid when she is pushed to the ground?

I hope we're better than this.

This is really interesting. I just hope his son is practising with both normal and backwards bikes...
 
I almost broke my brain with a backwards bicycle for the sake of Science. I would appreciate it if you would share this video so people become aware of their own cognitive biases.

A little difficult to read in this picture, but the bottom of the plate reads "And Our Friends Are All Aboard."

Johnny Turk, he was waiting, he'd primed himself well.
He showered us with bullets and he rained us with shells.
And in five minutes flat he'd blown us all to hell
Nearly blew us right back to Australia.

-- April 25, 1915.

I'd heard that tip before, and they duly obliged!

Now I'm extremely full...

Very pleasant restaurant in Cupertino; extremely friendly and engaging staff with a lot of hands-on customer service from the owner. The food was delicious - roti with a fresh curry dip (delicious), one of the best chicken satay appetizers I've ever had, and a really spicy, flavoursome curry entree. Numerous flavors of shaved ice desserts; try the mango especially!

Unfortunately it was overcast and raining when I was here, which is a pity as I think that the view is one of Doyle's main attractions. Still; the food was excellent and the service efficient, friendly and polite.
