Well duh, I can't believe people actually believed a bunch of edited videos from some random ppl.
Indiana on Thursday cleared Planned Parenthood facilities that perform abortions in the state of any wrongdoing in the handling of fetal tissue.

People will believe anything.  Especially if they already believe what they're being told.  People love hearing they'r'e right.

No, that is an ugly shirt! It looks like you work in a hospital, except you messed up the laundry and your blue scrubs turned green.

So for the rotating wall, why not have the fireplace exhaust into a sort of funnel that points to the chimney. This way the fireplace can rotate while still exhausting smoke into the chimney.

Microsoft created a native YouTube app on Windows Phone, and Google made them take it down. "The market isn't big enough" is an excuse, as Google has created YouTube apps on the Xbox, which is a much smaller market. There are 3rd party apps on Windows Phone that use the YouTube API, but Google doesn't pursue them.

The reason that Windows Phone hasn't succeeded is that there isn't a killer feature like the Office Lens app on Windows Phone. There isn't strong leadership that believes that Windows Phone has to succeed at Microsoft. Instead, you have the Office team that tries to make money any way they can, and they don't have to support corporate strategy. Office, Bing, etc. creates apps for the platforms with the biggest markets, while there's no corporate direction to make Windows a priority.

I really don't understand what the issue is. PP donates fetal tissue for stem cell research......so? That's good, stem cell research brings great medical benefits. 
The temporary restraining order will remain in place until the Senate hearing on whether to bar federal aid for Planned Parenthood.

The claim is that the organs are being sold, not donated. It's illegal to sell organs.

I'm gonna become a doctor, but I have a religious objection against curing people. So keep paying me, but don't expect me to be doing any of that medical stuff.

Is anyone else getting all emails that are directly directed to you (so someone sends you an email to you and only you) in #inbox  put in the Low Priority group?

No idea what is happening. Is it because I ignore so many recruiter emails? (which are usually directly sent to me).
