Stewart nails it.
The Supreme Court hands down a monumental ruling on same-sex marriage, but conservatives like Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee and Donald Trump are not pleased with the verdict.

Some anti-vaxxers have gone full mental.
ANTI-VAXXERS have become notorious for their hard-line stance against vaccinating children, and now another worrying new trend is starting to emerge.

So let me get this straight: if I just stand there in real life, my player will do an impressive ninja kick in the game?

I'm liking this already!

+DeafDudes RetroGaming​ It's Kinect game. You're supposed to kick in real life. The illustration on the back didn't quite capture that though ;)

+Jerome Phiffer​ IKR?! And those kleets did a number on my carpet!

Congratulations, anti-vaxxer assholes (redundant, I know). You just killed a woman with a weakened immune system. I hope you're really f**king happy about that.
 
The US just had its first measles death since 2003

We started 2015 with one of the worst measles outbreaks in recent history, which originated at Disneyland in California. And today, the US just recorded its first measles death in a dozen years.
The woman contracted the virus while at a health facility in Washington state.

People will believe anything. Gamespot, this is disappointing. We're years away from another Nintendo console according to Nintendo themselves.

Taiwan-based Digitimes claims that...

Digitimes makes a lot of claims, very few of which hold any water. Moving on.
Mass production expected to begin May or June; Report claims 20 million is the initial shipment target.

+DeafDudes RetroGaming Nintendo said they might share some more details next year, which probably puts the thing's launch in 2017 or maybe even 2018. So that pretty much throws out this ridiculous rumor.

I don't usually read Salon stuff, but oh my god this one was gold!

But the candidate who’s most successfully leveraged apocalyptic conservative outrage to his advantage in the hey-look-at-me competition has been our main man, Ted Cruz.

Is Ted Cruz feeling a little … left behind?

LOL

What the hell, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, Donald Trump? How dare you vie for the mantle of most outlandish nutso person in your own desperate, doomed-to-fail bids? That’s Ted Cruz’s “lane.” Cruz’s whole thing is about serving as the principal vessel for the raging underbelly of American conservatism. He’s the one who is constantly trying to shut down the government and/or default on federal debt payments in the service of repealing some law or another that he doesn’t like. That’s his thing. Step off.

Snicker

added a new line to his repertoire following the Court’s one-two punch: that these represent “some of the darkest 24 hours in our nation’s history.” (The quote as first reported omitted the “some of” part — that Thursday morning to Friday morning represented the darkest 24 hours in history. Typical lamestream media, hearing what it wants to hear

ROFL
There's some serious conservative rage to be leveraged right now, and Ted Cruz is leading the pandering contest

Maybe I have a little tinfoil hat thing going, but why is our ex-governor, current governor, and attorney general all opposed to tighter air quality requirements? Maybe they have a few investments in coal?

Because I highly doubt they're really all that concerned over a dollar or two in increased rates (as if that's the only thing responsible) when taxpayers see that effect elsewhere.

I hope I'm just being crazy here.
The officials comment after the Supreme Court ruled Monday that the Environmental Protection Agency did not adequately consider the costs of tighter limits on mercury and other airborne pollutants.

This is what paranoid people freak out about. Meanwhile, they happily carry their phones with them everywhere they go, and many of those are probably a Moto X with screen-off hotword detection.

But noooo, freak out because your PC at home has a mic and an application is using it to respond to commands, and then label it as "eavesdropping" as if some perv is sitting in a van down the street with a pair of giant headphones waiting for you to talk in front of your PC.

The mic is a big concern insofar as I am not consciously aware of the impact of everything I say at home on a global audience. If I'm going to have an always listening service, I want it written by an open-source third party that only hands transcripts of what it hears to other apps when it decides it is relevant -- no network connection in the app itself and no proprietary code.
