Is that some backstory I snuck in here? It may well be!

This is why ignorance is dangerous, right here.
As rising sea levels begin to engulf naval bases and extreme weather exacerbates conflicts worldwide, the military has sounded the alarm that climate change poses a long-term threat to U.S. security. The GOP response? It passed legislation that blocks funding for any Pentagon program that tackles climate change.

Good.

Faking emergencies to intentionally cause this sort of disruption is just reprehensible.

My understanding, mind, is that the people who pull these stunts intentionally try and make it sound like the sort of call that WOULD merit sending that sort of immediate response.

Thus the problem. There are legitimate cases in which you'd want to send in a SWAT team ASAP, and unfortunately some people have figured out how to trigger all the right flags to make the dispatchers think one is necessary.

Oh holy crap - these guys did a paper on how some people will deny scientific findings because a) they're inconvenient in that they oppose their worldview and b) because they tend to believe conspiracy theories.

And the tinfoil hat guys read a conspiracy into the journal, so the same guys did a paper on those guys, and long story short their latest paper has been pulled because of legal concerns, not scientific/ethical ones.
Climate bloggers studied by psychologist find his conclusions defamatory.

Mark Millar eats crow on his initial assessment of the digital comics market.

'Tis a big thing to reevaluate an opinion and be willing to admit you ended up being wrong. Also a solid read on the digital comics market in general - I'd say it holds true for me anyway.

Yeeesh; the guy who created the plans for a 3D printable gun is SCARY.
In 2012, Cody Wilson founded Defense Distributed — a company whose mission is to "defend the civil liberty of popular access to arms" through "information and knowledge related to the 3D printing of arms." In an interview, Wilson talks about his next big plans, and says the Newtown shooting was "the cost of freedom."

So recently, that creationist "museum" got their hands on a dinosaur fossil.

Here's a great article on all the problems inherent in this and what it means for science.
As you may have read on the mainpage, the Creation "Museum" in Kentucky was using this Memorial Day weekend to open a new exhibit: a semi-complete skeleton of Allosaurus fragilis named Ebenezer.

Huh. Seems they finally tracked down the creator of BitCoin.
The reclusive inventor of the troubled virtual currency has been hiding in plain sight

Awesome to see the VFX industry taking action.

It's an overworked industry that suffers from so many layoffs despite successes that at this point I joke that the visual effects credits in the end credits of big Hollywood releases are an unemployment roll.
From Marlon Brando's civil rights statement in absentia to Michael Moore's anti-war speech, the Academy Awards ceremony played host to its share of high-profile protests. This year, though, the big...
