+John Stewart​​​ - the real question is the reverse -- is there a religion exclusively for straight people? Some so-called Christians think so.

"In a history-making decision, Gov. Mike Pence of Indiana has signed into law a bill that officially recognizes stupidity as a religion."

This is giving me nightmares. As I said in a comment on +Lauren Weinstein's posting on this subject:

I fly about 120 segments each year, usually up front (1st/business class), about 98% on Delta, for what it's worth. I've observed many rotations of flight deck personnel out to the lavatory, and each time, the procedure (on Delta, at least) is for an FA (flight attendant) to take her/his place on the flight deck, with the flying pilot, while the pilot who needs relief is out of the flight deck. When the pilot is ready to return, she/he swaps places with the FA.

(In the meantime, other FAs block the entrance transit between the aisle and the forward galley with a service cart, and remain quite vigilant and stern.)

It would surprise me if other airlines didn't have the same protocol.

The downside of securely locked cockpit doors.

As officials struggled Wednesday to explain why a jet with 150 people on board crashed in relatively clear skies, an investigator said evidence from a cockpit voice recorder indicated one pilot left the cockpit before the plane’s descent and was unable to get back in.

A senior military official involved in the investigation described “very smooth, very cool” conversation between the pilots during the early part of the flight from Barcelona to Düsseldorf. Then the audio indicated that one of the pilots left the cockpit and could not re-enter.

“The guy outside is knocking lightly on the door and there is no answer,” the investigator said. “And then he hits the door stronger and no answer. There is never an answer.” ❞

Take this, so-called family advocates on the Right -- put more women to work, support more flexible family norms, and BOOM -- a baby boom.

"[F]ertility in Europe is higher in countries where women go out to work, lower in those where they generally stay at home," says the full article at http://www.theguardian.com/world/2015/mar/21/france-population-europe-fertility-rate?CMP=fb_gu

WGBH sent me its annual membership renewal reminder recently. I haven't renewed since David Koch has been on its board. Is he still on the board? Yup. So, #WGBH, go pound sand, because it's highly suspect for you to have editorial independence around issues related to climate change and petroleum policy as long as he's serving (not the station, mind, but his own interests) on your board.

"The Ida B. Wells Center for Investigative Journalism is a nonprofit, public interest news organization founded to cast light on the impacts of oppression. We will examine barriers to just and equal treatment at the institutional and individual levels, focusing especially on unexamined or unconscious attitudes that lead to exclusion. By covering stories that are too seldom told our reporting will create space for public discourse about poverty, race, gender, and other focal points of oppression."

Please consider supporting their good work.

+Megan Ringrose Correct - though depending on the mail reader/browser, there's still ways to track... these can include scriplets (javascript or other) or basically anything that might cause the mail-reader to make a connection outside of your machine that you didn't explicitly request.

"Life is best when it's a bit strange," says Norwegian television producer Thomas Hellum in this wonderful introduction to Norway's "slow TV" movement. Its most amazing expression thus far has been a live broadcast of a coastal excursion that lasted more than 134 hours and was wildly popular.

This brief explanatory intro is quite fun to watch, and I have also found both the full-length recording, and a 35 minutes summary of the voyage (https://youtu.be/2uXzkNYsQfM). I've started watching one of the train journeys, and I am transfixed.

You've heard about slow food. Now here's slow ... TV? In this very funny talk, Norwegian television producer Thomas Hellum shares how he and his team began to broadcast long, boring events, often live — and found a rapt audience. Shows include a 7-hour train journey, an 18-hour fishing expedition and a 5.5-day ferry voyage along the coast of Norway. The results are both beautiful and fascinating. Really.

Yes, +John Dunkelberg -- if you watch the TED Talk, you'll see mention of a bird-watching video that's quite lengthy.

Yes! The House Judiciary Committee did just publish a racist listicle. As an official press release, no less.

The GOP-controlled House Judiciary Committee on Wednesday published a listicle arguing that immigration enforcement should sit in the hands of state and local police "who we already trust." An all-white cast of memes they included agrees.
