Friends, they are soon voting on a terrifying new bill that will permit the INDEFINITE detention of US Citizens WITHOUT charge or due process. It is very real and very scary. Learn more and then PLEASE call your Representatives.

We should all be outraged.
BP says Halliburton "intentionally destroyed evidence" related to the oil-rig explosion in the Gulf of Mexico that led to the worst oil spill in U.S. history.

Shocking and utterly heartbreaking. I had no idea of the scale of this.

And this: Taiwan Shark Fishery Images Underline Global Threat | Pew
Some 73 million sharks are killed each year for their fins. Despite increased public awareness, large-scale operations are still open for business in many countries, new images show.

...Seriously, Mississippi?
Mississippi's "Personhood" measure could outlaw birth control. And it's not an accident.

What a nice guy! Probably doesn't want to see ads like "Senator hates babies and kittens and God!"

Okay, now this is just terrifying.
New advances in facial recognition technology could mark the end of anonymity in public spaces and help usher in a new age of law enforcement in the US.

I always used to heat them in the toaster oven...makes a world of difference.

This post is about this frozen box of pretzels I bought yesterday, which can allegedly be heated to perfection in the microwave, dusted with salt (that comes in a handy packet and everything) and then enjoyed the way one enjoys a pretzel that does not suck.

What. A. Load.

Seriously, I don't think there's enough beer and mustard on the planet to make this pretzel -- which is more chewy unsatisfying lump of salty dough than what is traditionally understood to be a pretzel -- enjoyable.

But it's sitting here, on my desk, looking all sad and lumpy and pathetic, one bite taken out of it, almost apologetic. If this pretzel-like thing could talk, it would probably say, "Hey, man, I'm sorry. When I was at the pretzel place where they make pretzels, I came out of the oven and I was perfect. I was warm, I had that pretzel thing going where the outside of me is slightly thicker than regular crust, so the inside of me was all soft and kind of lighter than regular bread, but when they froze me and put me into the box, well, something just died inside of me, man."

I feel like I should apologize to the pretzel for hating it so much -- it's not entirely its fault that it sucks as much as it does -- but unlike everything else that surrounds me, this particular inanimate object doesn't seem interested in having a conversation with me that I can transcribe. Uh, beyond the , uh, one prepared statement, I guess.

I guess it's my own fault for ignoring a lifetime of disappointing microwavable bread products and ignoring the sage advice of my wife, who said, "That's going to suck, and you're going to be pissed that you bought it, and you keep complaining about feeling tubby so why are you eating pretzels, anyway?"

I guess the moral of the story is: don't go shopping when you're hungry.

I think the vending machine metaphor is absolutely brilliant! (And funny.)

...Really? I had no idea this was a common practice. Did you?
About 30 percent of the natural gas produced in North Dakota is burned as waste, an amount that no other domestic oil field comes close to.

I have no idea what to add to this, but it is kind of cool.

I'm glad you saw this, JM. I saw your post on Facebook and was going to come back and post this underneath it, but I guess I don't have to now...
