Considering that these videos are made as part of +Loot Crate 's advertising and not some regular web show, they are really well thought out and surprisingly well done.  I particularly love this one.

I think this is ridiculous.  A 10 year old and a 6 year old can do certain things without constant supervision.  It's a risk, yes, but it's not neglect or abusive.  I'm pretty certain that I walked to and from parks with my younger sister by the time I was 10.  A mile isn't that far, either.  Just because we don't walk further than to/from the car anymore doesn't mean that a mile has gotten longer.

I'll reserve judgment until we know which park and where they had to walk going home. I'm not convinced a 6 year old should be crossing busy highways, even when supervised by a 10 year old. However in general I do think society has gotten into a bad habit of assuming that every possibly bad thing will happen unless we lock ourselves down, and that locking ourselves down will guarantee that nothing bad will ever happen.

And this time it was caught on video.  If it hadn't, it would have sounded like a bunch of other times when the cop was "justified" in shooting an unarmed black man.  As for those that say "so, what did the guy do that he was running?" or "he shouldn't have run from the cop," doesn't matter.  Running, regardless of the reason or whether it was right, isn't justification for shooting him.  And, if we were to look at why he ran, who knows?  Maybe it's like that Minneapolis cop who threatened to harm a black youth and he was afraid.  They always say that, if you're confronted by someone who wants to harm you, run away.  You have a better chance of survival.
The North Charleston officer, who is white, had said Mr. Scott, an apparently unarmed black man, took his stun gun. But a video shows the officer firing at him eight times.

The more egregious part is that not only did he assassinate this man, but he knew he did something because he falsified his report. Other than that, don't be stupid and run, just follow along and you have a higher survivability rate.

Hehe.
 
Happy April Fool's Day
Emerging evidence indicates that dragons can no longer be dismissed as creatures of legend and fantasy, and that anthropogenic effects on the world's climate may inadvertently be paving the way for the resurgence of these beasts.

The best article on gluten I've seen for the general public.
Why ancient grains aren't a panacea, and other revelations from a new scientific report.

Agreed. It's a little like the boy who cried wolf. But, the benefit (temporarily, at least) is a lot more choice for those who really do have issues with gluten.

For what it's worth, I suspect that we'll find that some people can be cured of celiac symptoms with fecal transplant. The more we learn about our gut microbiota, the more we'll find that keeping it healthy will help keep us healthy, including preventing and curing diseases we never would have guessed were linked.

How does a survivor of the Columbine tragedy end up on the jury of the Aurora massacre?  And, if the identities of the jurors are secure, how do we even know this?

A union plumber, a schoolteacher and a survivor of the 1999 Columbine High School massacre were among the 19 women and five men chosen as jurors in the death penalty trial of Aurora theater shooter James Holmes.

Hmm.  Very different from their earlier stuff, but I'm digging it.
Mumford & Sons really push the tempo and energy levels on their latest single 'The Wolf'.

I'll be so sad when this happens.  Wait...
Enjoy solar eclipses while you can! In about 650 million years, they won't be able to happen anymore.

Here's the problem--each of those laws, and particularly Indiana's law, was specifically crafted to protect bigotry in some form.  Otherwise, no such law is needed as religious freedom is protected under the 1st Amendment.  Indiana's problem isn't an image problem, it's a guilt problem.  The Repubs got caught passing fundamentalist legislation (who says no one wants Sharia law???), complete with passages that specifically protect businesses that want to discriminate (as long as they call it a religious thing), and Pence was foolish enough not to say "guys, were you bored?  Could you possibly find something better to do than make laws that codify bigotry?  I'm not going to sign this bullshit."
Indiana Gov. Mike Pence admitted that he mishandled the passage of a religious freedom law and now wants a piece of legislation to clarify the state's stance.

Very well said.

As this article ( http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2015/03/31/mike-pence-s-new-fan-club-wiccans.html ) notes, oftentimes these laws are passed by ignorant mouthbreathing morons who are so excited that they get to shove Jesus down some gay guy's throat that they fail to consider the can of worms the law is actually opening.

I, for one, hope fringe religions shove this law right in the governor's face.

I purchased my first brand new car, a Hyundai Veloster, at Morrie's. My salesman Perry Smulders hunted down a car with the color and features I wanted. I also purchased the Buy Happy package, which includes the first 3 years of oil changes and free car washes, so I go to the dealership for oil changes and car washes, and I've found the service department to be superb as far as customer service goes.
