So much goodness, including classics like this: "According to Google Translate, 'Magma Carta' is Latin for 'Cardboard Volcano'..."

I mean, there is nothing written in the stars that requires funerals to be somber affairs...  but doesn't it seem a bit disrespectful of the dead, that the only way to get people to come together to mourn them is with shallow titillation?
Ministry of culture said it will work with police to prevent people from hiring erotic entertainment meant to celebrate the deceased and attract mourners

Normally, he's right on the money, but not this time I think.

If there actually was a black hole the mass of the moon, then there wouldn't be enough gravity to sustain the collapsed state, and it would explode outward as the repelling atomic forces overwhelmed the (now) minuscule gravity... likely leading to the end of all life on earth, as always with such questions.

At least, that's what I think would happen. :)
Prev · Black Hole Moon. What would happen if the Moon were replaced with an equivalently-massed black hole? If it's possible, what would a lunar ("holar"?) eclipse look like? —Matt. "Not much" and "not much." A black hole the mass of the Moon would have an event horizon about the size of a sand ...

To clarify +David Jao's comment slightly, the black hole moon's gravity will be identical to the real moon's except when you get very close to it, the tidal forces will be different. Tides could crush you sideways, at least a little, if you were much closer to the black hole than the radius of the real moon.

But from the Earth, no difference, except that the nights would have no moonlight.

A great reference for all the different accents; she even shows where each accent comes from on the map...

Jeffrey Taylor really is one of the best, most strident atheist writers.

All in all, rationalists should applaud O’Reilly and Coulter for having the courage to so boldly air their mendacity, mischaracterizations, and lopsided analogies, which are in fact illuminating.  Namely, they both argue from a premise so widely accepted that they leave it unstated: that those who believe, without proof, fantastical, far-reaching propositions about the nature of our cosmos and how we should live our lives have nothing to explain, nothing to account for, while those of us who value convictions based on evidence, reasoned solutions, and rules for living deriving from consensus must ceaselessly justify ourselves and genuflect apologetically for voicing disagreement.
What flabbergasts O’Reilly & Coulter is nonbelievers are no longer keeping mum about Christianity's rank stupidity

I've heard it called "The Crown Jewels", and I'm almost surprised we published details about it. Quite simply, it's the bees knees.

Umm... I haven't been misprouncing all of them...
When travelling, a great faux-pas to avoid if you want to get in good with the locals is mispronouncing the name of the place you're in. Luckily, this collection of images will take some of the most commonly mispronounced place names and show us how we SHOULD have been saying them.

+Bruce Rollerson Not sure if many people outside your great state of Wait Awhile know that the name of its capital should be pronounced "Perff". Perhaps you should let +Thrillophilia.com know.

Probably overpriced and probably oversubscribed, but these still look waaay cool

"$283,335 pledged of $15,000 goal." Yep, slightly oversubscribed.

They organized a beautiful townhouse for us, in a very relaxing area very close to the beach, with a lovely back porch area looking out over a golf course. However, the down side of this, of course, is that the house is continually being hit by golf balls; over the course of our 6 day stay, we were hit at least 7 times, and I collected 5 golf balls that got caught by the fences around the porch!

Great environment, great atmosphere, great service. Food was really good, but could have been better. Just wasn't really up to par with the rest of it, I guess.

Great place to eat, but can become crowded, so sometimes the service suffers because of that.

I've had better Indian food, but not in this country. :)
