Approximately 4.87% of the world's cloud-based storage is phone video of fireworks at the Disney Parks that will never, ever be watched again.

Quick survey: when I invent a time machine, what would it be worth for you to pay (per use) to

(a) Kill Hitler
(b) Win arguments with the perfect response delivered at the right time, instead of next day in the shower


Based on current responses, average so far has been $10 for the first use case, $13,000 for the second.

It's disgraceful how 2008 Michelle Obama retroactively plagiarized Donald Trump's third wife's inspiring speech describing how loyal he is.

The Pokemon Go app has been great for getting outside and meeting strangers. So far I've caught an Eevee, 2 Raticates, an Electabuzz, 4oz of meth and Hepatitis C.

I used to worry about how much time I have wasted ("You'll never get those hours back"). But by not being on Facebook or Playing Pokemon Go, I think maybe I can.

One week of not playing Pokemon Go erases one week of setting in marketing meeting?

When Caitlyn Jenner gives her talk at/close to the RNC next week...

...which bathroom will they let her use? Either way, it's a bit of a no-win situation for the organizers, isn't it? If she's "allowed" to use the women's bathroom, it exposes them as hypocrites. If she's not, the optics will be terrible.

Oh, the dangers of planting your flag in Jello.

I wondered if this debacle has really affected Melania Trump's chances in the 2032 Presidential elections.

Then I realized that's ridiculous: if Trump becomes President there won't BE elections by 2032; just daily alpha male battles over whose turn it is to climb up on the pile of buffalo meat and make fun of minorities, the disabled, and the members of the Tribe From Across Great River.

An atheist, a Muslim and a Jew get on a plane and end up in the same row together.

One of them throws up mid-way through a 4-hour flight.

Unfortunately there's no punchline.

People who get touchy about Clinton being referred to as the "presumptive Democratic nominee" are going to get really pissed after next week when we start referring to her as the "presumptive President of the United States".

I've seen very few voices raised complaining that it's hard to get emergency vehicles around the significant and long-lasting traffic jams that form around the Twins/Vikings/TCF Stadiums or the Excel Center when games let out.

It seems that we're OK with disrupting emergency vehicles for a sporting exhibition, but less so about doing so to draw attention to people being bullied, harassed, thrown in jail and murdered by those who are supposedly charged with protecting them.

If we could have some similar traffic jams leaving ‪#‎BLM‬ protests because so many of us cared about and attended them, I guarantee that some of these issues would have been taken care of already.

I've just had the terribly sad realization that the events in Dallas may finally be the tipping point on action towards gun control. Because a lot of people are sitting up tonight and saying "Wait a second... the Second Amendment means <ahem> people who don't "look like us" get to have guns too? That's not what we meant!"

It's not the murder of 26 children that will be the tipping point, that point already came and went years ago. It's the realization that blind unwavering support of the Second Amendment ALSO puts guns in the hands of the people who supporters thought they would be protecting themselves against.

You know... "thugs".

And what has happened? A man who believed the government was attacking his freedoms and acting in a tyrannical fashion, picked up a weapon and used it to attack the agents of his perceived oppressor. Congratulations, NRA: looks like your publicity campaign worked: bonuses all around to your advertising agency.

Oh, you don't agree with his definition of "tyranny"? You mean you didn't reach consensus on the term before you sold 300+ million guns, based specifically on how abso-fucking-lutely NECESSARY they were to prevent it?

Oh, what a pickle. Oh, what a fucking shitstorm. Congratulations. And now, unfortunately, you've successfully sold the idea that any action WHATSOEVER to try to address the situation, no matter how simple or rational, amounts to...

...you guessed it, "government tyranny", which will trigger the Manuchurian Candidate response you've so carefully cultivated.

Individually, we're all wonderful people. Collectively, we suuuuuuuuuuuuuck.

Funnily enough (or not so funny, really), the first gun control law came under Gov. Ronald Reagan in California in response to Black Panthers open carrying and preventing police abuses of black civilians. So we have a history of deciding to control guns when they're in the hands of black men.

A smaller selection of food and pastries than what is available in the other locations, but it's a smaller location too. Very cozy, very friendly.
