When the guy with an Iron Cross tattoo who strips nearly nude on stage at your convention is one of the least crazy people you put on stage at your convention, you know your in trouble.

Also, it would be really nice if the Libertarians could shed themselves of the Anarchists.

Regrettably for them, most libertarians are just anarchists without the courage of their convictions ; )

While this is a problem with "normal" TV and Netflix also, I find the thing that's most off-putting about YouTube Red Original shows is that they're basically unshareable. There is actually some really good content being produced, like CollegeHumor's "Bad Internet", that I think people will enjoy, but as it's all subscription gated (and, of course, limited to specific markets currently), it's basically impossible to share like I would any other video on YouTube.

Ultimately, I think it's a net win, that these creators are able to make bigger (and thus riskier) shows that they might otherwise, but as the program grows, I fear it starts creating rifts in the YouTube community, as you have those who can see this stuff, and those who can't.

While the DNC is going to great lengths to be visibly forcing votes on Gun Control, it's pretty clear at this point that they're seeking publicity in an election year, and not change. There aren't even discussions about trying to pass the parts of these competing bills that are actually the same.

There are absolutely problems with both proposals, but that's why Congress is supposed to negotiate, and find a reasonable middle ground. And that is why Congress fails, and why we basically need to reboot Congress altogether at this point.
Jordan Klepper and Roy Wood Jr. demonstrate why Congress has a hard time passing gun legislation.

I am so glad to learn that The Circus will be returning around the time of the RNC and DNC conventions this July. It was a fantastic, and fascinating look at the primary process, done by a few guys who mostly just find the process of how we elect our officials fascinating.

It goes a long way to show how weird our system is, but I think it's important to understand what we do today before trying to substantively change it.

In the 1960s, the US was launching Spy Satellites that used film to take their photos. The coolest part here is that they'd engineered a film capsule that could survive re-entry, and then be caught by a plane while falling under a parachute in order to prevent the film capsule from hitting water or being damaged.

I sure hope this chart about average temperatures in Vietnam just had a major bug in their conversion of Celsius to Farenheit.

It's like a literal #ouroboros.
Poor snake. This slithery Stimson’s Python somehow managed to shed its skin completely within itself. The tail, oddly enough, finished shedding inside the mouth of the snake, forming a perfect circle that unfortunately trapped the snake inside of its old skin. According to the Alice Springs Reptile Centre in Australia, the non-venomous snake was just going around and around inside its own skin for over three hours before it was able to find a way...

A channel about cooking and life in the 18th Century (at least Europe and the US in the 18th Century)? Yes please. Super interesting content, actually.

I figure that this is why Trump has refused to reveal his tax returns, that or they'd demonstrate that he's less wealthy than he claims.

But what I find most interesting is this:

//Indeed, in the 1920s tax returns were public record and newspapers routinely reported the precise income and tax paid by prominent Americans.
Congress could simply add a one-line amendment to Section 6103 of the tax code, which makes returns confidential, providing that the nominee of any party whose name appears on the ballot in say 10 or more states will have his or her complete tax returns, for as many years as the IRS has copies, posted on the IRS website.//

Now, I actually think it's probably reasonable to make Tax Returns public record again (they are in several other western countries), but since that's unlikely to happen, applying this just to presidential candidates (or, even better, to anyone running for federal office), would be a great move. Which will never happen, because why would Congress make this amendment to the tax code?
If the presumptive GOP nominee keeps hiding his returns, Congress could force him to show his hand with a one-line amendment to the tax code.
