Yes, you knew this was coming.

The "Obama assassinated Scalia" conspiracy theory is off to a flying start.
 
Well, that didn't take long, did it?
My comment on YT:
Well shit, Obama left it a bit late. Couldn't he have offed Scalia a year or two earlier, so the new Judges would be on the bench before the election? Never mind, better late than never. Let's hope that he takes out Alito, Thomas, & Roberts too, while there's still time. ;)

Who can imagine a fat wealthy homophobe not surviving into his eighties.

There was definitely rejoicing in some parts of the Middle East. The caption refers to bizarre and false allegations made by various right wing nuts, particularly Trump.

Antonin Scalia (1936-2016).

He wasn't exactly the youngest or the fittest of the Supreme Court associate justices, but this was not expected.

Politically this will have interesting repercussions, but let's have a period of mourning by his family and admirers and all other decent people.
 
Senior U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Antonin Scalia was found dead of apparent natural causes Saturday on a luxury resort in West Texas, federal officials said.

Good effing riddance.

I'm not supposed to speak ill of the dead but in this case I'm delighted to make an exception.

Becky was an innocent college student. She'd overheard computer-geeks in the cafeteria arguing about the dangers of Adobe, but she was a business student, & didn't pay much attention to tech stuff. So she thought nothing of it when she downloaded a paper in PDF format & couldn't open it. She asked one of her friends what to do, & he suggested that she have a taste of Adobe Reader. "But isn't Adobe dangerous?" she said. He assured her that it wasn't, & that everybody did it. So she took it, & everything seemed fine. Little did she know that the evil software was hooking it's way into the nooks & crannies of her system, so subtly that only an expert could spot the symptoms. 
  Next, she found a funny website her friends were going nuts over, but it wouldn't work without Adobe Flash. She hit the download button & injected it into her system with barely a second thought. Sadly, the evil software had quietly ruined her immune system, & it didn't take long for opportunistic infections to target her. The symptoms were a lot like a bad case of the flu, except that it slowly got worse instead of getting better. She had no idea that the mountains of spam that were now filling her inbox & popping up on her browser had anything to do with her dabbling in Adobe.
  The final stage came after her Adobe habit became an actual addiction, & she found herself paying real money to hit up Adobe Creative Cloud multiple times a day.  Then one day, her /.bzvol folder simply fell off. Just like that. Gone.
Her mom weeps for her every year on that day, wishing she could have her innocent daughter back, wishing that she'd known to warn her about the dangers of Adobe.
ADOBE - NOT EVEN ONCE.
(H/T: +Peter da Silva for the inspiration.)
We've encountered an issue on the Mac where Adobe Creative Cloud (version 3.5.0.206) appears to be removing the contents of the first hidden folder at...

Listening to the livecast from the crazies in Oregon now.

That screeching nutbag who won't stop yelling incoherent crap is endangering the rest of them. He's clearly out of control, and he's armed. I think it's Fry.

So all's well that ends well. Sort of. Michelle Fiore is an interesting piece of work. Now the court process gets to be a three ring circus.
