Crooked right-wing YouTube poll ads, both on the same watch page. Designed to trick users into clicking on YES or NO believing that's the actual poll, when in reality they're clicking through to another site. By my understanding of the YT ToS, this is a violation. It is also (AFAIK) a violation for the ad to have no indication of who is sponsoring it.

Activate the spindizzies Thought for the Day: Bulletin: In a new plan to avoid debt repayment, Greek voters have chosen to leave the Eurozone and the Planet Earth, with Athens designated as first to depart. "Let's just see Merkel catch us now in some old BMW!" Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was quoted as saying, as he stuffed suitcases full of Euros.

[Answered Below] - I'm trusting you guys not to look this up, and to answer based on either independent knowledge or logic -- but no search engines or reference works. In the 1958-66 classic series Mr. Ed, what are the first words we (and his new owner Wilbur Post) hear spoken by Ed the horse?

I deduced correctly.  Which is to say - lucky guess.

The monsters are these judges and prosecutors with attitudes out of the 19th century and no sense of proportion, and the politicians who created this entire mess while pandering for votes. Those are the monsters, not kids like this. They're the ones we should fear. They're the ones we should punish. Not him.
Many people hold up the case of Zachery Anderson, who at 19 had sex with a minor who lied about her age, as a reason to rethink who’s registered.

+Lauren Weinstein​ If this were the 19th century or before, or even the mid 20th century nobody would give it a second thought. Today, an 18 year old who messes with a 17 year old can go to prison in certain states. This recent change is driven by a justice system that makes money from warm-body count and a few other social factors.

And you know what happens when you write out a detailed report of these YouTube channels that are flooding the service with fraudulent clickspam and degraded videos to which they have no rights to monetize? It's like saying XYZZY in the wrong place in ADVENTURE -- NOTHING HAPPENS. Spell it out in detail, it matters not.

Empty the prisons of most current occupants, and lock up these gun nuts and the politicians who kowtow to the monsters at the NRA and their gun merchant allies. Lock 'em all up. Throw away the key. We'll all be a hell of a lot safer with these moronic maniacs behind bars, forever.
While out shopping in Georgia at my favorite bookstore, the same day the Emanuel AME Church reopened its doors after the mass shooting, a white man in camouflage entered the store openly carrying a gun on his hip. This tense moment was too soon.

+Kevin Merkel​ The Second Amendment of the United States Constitution reads: "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."

Is pretty clear, which is why NRA members have gone off the rail trying to preserve individual rights. If they, and gun industry maintain same absurd track, you maybe looking at European style limits.

I just think the Periodic Video series and the others from Nottingham are some of the best stuff on YouTube.
