From the Do-It-Yourself Eugenics Department
"[R]esearchers found that smoking suppresses the activity of 53 genes involved in the immune system. Vaping also suppressed those 53 immune genes—along with 305 others. The results were presented Friday at the annual conference of the American Association for the Advancement of Science in Washington. Though research on the significance of that gene suppression is still ongoing, the initial results suggest that e-cig users may have compromised immune responses, making them potentially more vulnerable to infections and diseases."

It is considered poor form to speak ill of the dead, however, when a man as odious as Scalia kicks the bucket, one can be forgiven for poor form.

“I've never wished a man dead, but I have read some obituaries with great pleasure.” -Mark Twain.
The 79-year-old justice was the leader of the Supreme Court's conservative bloc

"It's like a wife seeing her husband with another woman – he can swear an oath afterward, but the trust is lost
"Citing Microsoft's capitulation to the US government in honoring sanctions against Russia, Klimenko said that the Redmond software giant had reached the "point of no return" with Moscow and that 22,000 government agencies and municipal offices were prepared to drop Windows right now."

Even so, some percentage of you, the readers are still stupid enough to be using windows. Sorry, but at this point in the game "stupid enough" is precisely the right description. (Ok, a tiny percentage of you are hamstrung by applications and hardware, but still...)

From the At Least They're Not Republicans Department
Says Julian Assange: “A vote today for Hillary Clinton is a vote for endless, stupid war,” [...] “years of experience in dealing with Hillary Clinton and have read thousands of her cables. Hillary lacks judgment and will push the United States into endless wars which spread terrorism.”
WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange has spoken out against US presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, calling her a “war hawk with bad judgment” who gets an “emotional rush out of killing people.”

"It was terribly dangerous to let your thoughts wander when you were in any public place or within range of a telescreen. The smallest thing could give you away. A nervous tic, an unconscious look of anxiety, a habit of muttering to yourself – anything that carried with it the suggestion of abnormality, of having something to hide."
George Orwell, 1984
