Even Stephen Hawking can't explain the phenomenon of Trump
When asked to explain the phenomenon of Donald Trump, he was stumped. “I can’t. He is a demagogue, who seems to appeal to the lowest common denominator."

Turns out ancient Greek astronomers had mechanical devices to predict eclipses
Dated somewhere between 150 to 100 BC we've now confirmed that the Antikythera mechanism was capable of predicting the positions of the planets with which the Greeks were familiar—Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn—as well as the sun and moon, and eclipses. It even has a black and white stone that turns to show the phases of the moon.

Supreme Court Overturns Texas Anti-Abortion Law
The Supreme Court just issued a 5-3 ruling in Whole Woman’s Health v. Hellerstedt calling both provisions in the case an “undue burden” on women seeking to obtain legal abortions.

The American Medical Association and the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists both argued that the regulations “serve no medical purpose, interfere in the doctor/patient relationship, and do nothing to promote women’s health.” 5-3 the Justices agreed... of course Thomas said in an angry dissent that abortion isn’t a right in the first place.

Teaching kids philosophy improves academic performance
Though I bet they might start to question that whole church thing.

The study involved over 3000 children in 48 primary schools all around England. The kids who were taking philosophy classes improved their math and reading skills by about two months of additional progress compared to the students who didn't take the classes.

GOP does not stand with LGBT
Assholes. "Less than three days after a popular gay club in Orlando became the site of the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history, Republican leaders in the House of Representatives blocked a vote on a proposal that would ensure federal contractors can’t discriminate against employees on the basis of sexual orientation or gender identification. Hours earlier, a number of notable conservative figures had put on a good show of standing in solidarity with the L.G.B.T. community, making the rounds on cable news to stand up for the dozens of gay men and women who died in Sunday’s attack. On Tuesday night, however, it was back to business as usual as the House Rules Committee prevented the amendment from reaching the floor for a vote."

Donald Trump To Host White Supremacist Rave Called “White House”
“There’s nothing racist about this event at all, sure there’ll be no blacks, Mexicans, Muslims, Asians or Jews at it but that’s not about race, it’s about exclusivity, I’m sure those guys get their own parties in prison all the time,” continued Trump. “Besides, none of those kinds of people are into EDM anyway, it’s definitely more of a white thing.”

Idiot human vapes a Carolina Reaper pepper
The Carolina Reaper is one of the hottest peppers known to man. It hits 2.2 million Scoville units. For perspective, a jalapeño maxes out at a mere 20,000 Scoville units. This is epicly stupid since capsaicin (the part that makes chillis hot) is a potent irritant and the lining of human lungs was by no means designed to be in contact with it. It's why they use the shit as an active ingredient in riot control and personal defense pepper spray agents. When the spray comes in contact with skin, especially eyes or mucous membranes, it produces pain and breathing difficulty, discouraging assailants. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Capsaicin#Pepper_spray_and_pests

Bernie supporters considering a Trump vote: WTF are you thinking?
No seriously WTF ARE YOU THINKING? This article does an excellent job of destroying every stupid argument I've been hearing (and it's cited!).

If you think being pro-choice is more evil than being pro-life, if you think trying to save the planet with carbon-reduction agreements is more evil than letting it burn, if you think gay marriage is more evil than being unequal, if you think the rule of law is more evil than having contempt for judges, if you think one Secretary of State seeing sensitive state documents in her private email is somehow more evil than Colin Powell doing the exact same thing, then guess what. You have nothing at all in common with Bernie Sanders.

Google Fi picks up US Cellular support - even more awesome than before
Google’s Project Fi cellular service is actually an MVNO (mobile virtual network operator) that piggybacks on existing networks to bring service to your cell. Now they’re working with US Cellular to bring you more coverage and speed.

US Cellular is the fifth largest mobile network in the country and is available in 23 states, so their addition to Project Fi’s coverage could be a substantial improvement for some users. Project Fi already works on the backbones of T-Mobile and Sprint and adding US Cellular as a third carrier should help fill some coverage gaps.

Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web, wants to unfuck it
The web is a little fucked up right now and Berners-Lee wants to fix that by recreating a decentralized web, with more privacy, less government control, and less corporate influence.

At the Decentralized Web Summit topics included: distributing web pages without using a standard web server computer, adding encryption to various parts of the web, and archiving all versions of a web page. There was also a session on payments and blockchains. Every discussion was focused on how to distribute, process, and host data with no centralized control.

In addition to government snooping Berners-Lee has said, "The web is already decentralized. The problem is the dominance of one search engine, one big social network, one Twitter for microblogging. We don’t have a technology problem, we have a social problem.”So ... more »

Donald Trump’s “Liaison for Christian Policy” is batshit crazy

Oh look! Facebook just opted you IN without telling you... again
A new setting has been added that grants Facebook the ability to track and target ads to you while you're not even on FB. Instead of just selling ads on Facebook, or on Facebook platforms (like WhatsApp and Instagram), Facebook is now selling ads everywhere, to everyone, whether or not you have a Facebook account. If you do have a Facebook account, though — like 1.6 billion other humans do — Facebook will also use your Facebook data to sell those ads. And it's opt-in by default without telling you.

The Dalai Lama - Germans Shouldn’t Invite Tide of Immigrants
It’s the second time in nine months that the Dalai Lama, often seen as a hyper-enlightened humanitarian, has confounded the expectations of his fans. Last September, in an appearance on the BBC, he was asked whether his successor could be a woman. While he answered in the affirmative, he added that she’d only be useful if she was “very attractive.”

“If a female Dalai Lama comes, their face should be very attractive. … That female must be very attractive, otherwise not much use.”

I can’t wait to hear what he”ll blurt out next. Maybe something about same-sex relationships constituting sexual misconduct?

Obama, Sanders, and Social Security Expansion
Two things:
1) Yup... Sanders. And despite the ever shrinking odds he's staying in. Why? Because he's still pushing his agenda.
2) I think this article title doesn't even really reflect the larger message here. Obama twice said he would strike a deal with Republicans who said they wanted to reduce Social Security benefits. Each time they had a 'No I only want exactly what I want, no compromise, so I'll take my ball and go home' attitude. Couple the GOP's "no" to everything Obama says with Sanders' populist messages and blamo... ripe for the tide to turn. 

Obama, Sanders, and Social Security Expansion
Two things:
1) Yup... Sanders. And despite the ever shrinking odds he's staying in. Why? Because he's still pushing his agenda.

The FBI Is Developing Software to Track and Sort People by Their Tattoos
This would allow law enforcement to sort and identify people based on their tattoos to determine “affiliation to gangs, sub-cultures, religious or ritualistic beliefs, or political ideology.”

This makes my fears (when I was younger) of having a personalized license plate seem, because it would make me instantly recognizable, seem silly in comparison.

Facebook Is Testing A "Use Less Data" Switch In Its Android App
What's really needed is a "stop listening for every fucking event Android has so that you stop chewing thru battery and performance" function. My Nvidia Shield K1 was nearly unusable... then I saw the articles about Facebook, uninstalled Facebook and Messenger and the fucker FLIES. I wouldn't have believed it had I not tried it myself...

FDA’s plan to cut excess salt
Hilariously... The Salt Institute claims that the FDA’s guidance is “tantamount to malpractice and inexcusable.” HA!

On the other hand... you can pry my salt from my cold, dead, lifeless fingers. What's a world without salt?!?!?! OK trimming it from soup is legit... I mean have you ever looked at how much is in canned soup. Also... shit would be "voluntary" as in... they won't have to do it.

DOD expects “Iron Man” armored robotic exoskeleton by 2018
One of the contenders for the TALOS program is Revision Military's Kinetic Operations Suit, which uses a lower-body powered exoskeleton and a rigid support spine to take the weight of the armor off the frame of the operator. It has in-suit cooling and covers 60 percent of the wearer's body in ballistic armor that can stop a rifle bullet. General Atomics is also working on methods of powering TALOS, including a hybrid power supply that can switch to battery for short periods for stealth purposes.

Elon Musk - there’s a “one in billions” chance we’re actually living in reality
So yeah... we're probably in a video game? If so I think I'm running an older console.

"The strongest argument for us being in a simulation probably is the following. Forty years ago we had pong. Like two rectangles and a dot. That was what games were.

Now, forty years later, we have photorealistic, 3D simulations with millions of people playing simultaneously and it’s getting better every year. Soon we’ll have virtual reality, augmented reality.

If you assume any rate of improvement at all, then the games will become indistinguishable from reality, even if that rate of advancement drops by a thousand from what it is now. Then you just say, okay, let’s imagine it’s 10,000 years in the future, which is nothing on the evolutionaryscale.

So given that we’re clearly on a trajectory to have games that are indistinguishable from reality, and those games could be played on any set-top box or on a PC or whatever, and there would probably be billions of such computers or set-top boxes, it would seem to follow that the odds that we’re in base reality is one in billions.

Tell me what’s wrong with that argument. Is there a flaw in that argument?"___

Sanders wins greater say in Democratic platform and names pro-Palestinian activist
Oh look... you mean he's been in it to cause change in the party even if he doesn't win? hmmmmmmm.

Sanders was given unprecedented say over the Democratic Party platform Monday and was allowed to choose nearly as many members of the Democratic Party platform-writing body as Clinton, who is expected to clinch the nomination next month. That influence resulted from an agreement worked out this month between the two candidates and party officials, the party announced Monday.

Epstein - Clinton - Trump
FOR FUCKS SAKE... ok listen this uber wealthy guy got busted for being in child sex scandals. Let's call that what it is... DISGUSTING. What you'll BE hearing is how he was associated with the Clintons. Why? Because it's being peddled in typical one-side fashion by Faux New and the BernBros as if it's an attack TRUMP (no seriously) will use this as an attack on Hillary. How? I dunno... at this point I think you're either a deluded Republican or you simply don't want anything with a vagina to hold office. SorryNotSorry for calling it out. Level any attack you want on her (not who I voted for in the primary) but at least peg shit on her that SHE did and don't be so blind as to not pause for two seconds and use Google.

Level any attack you want on her (not who I voted for in the primary) but at least peg shit on her that SHE did and don't be so blind as to not pause for two seconds and use Google.

There are unsealed court records that show Trump rode on Epstein's plane WITH Epstein (https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/1508967-deposition-excerpts.html#document/p73/a263754) (https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/1508967-deposition-excerpts.html#document/p74/a2), articles where Trump says Epstein is a, "“terrific guy” who he had known for 15 years. “He’s a lot of fun to be with. It is even said that he likes beautiful women as much as I do, and many of them are on the younger side. No doubt about it — Jeffrey enjoys his social life.” (http://nymag.com/nymetro/news/people/n_7912/#). And (so far) Hillary hasn't even come up; only Bill using his jet.

BTW... it's not just Bill and Donald that are in the little black book... Clintons, Trump (along with Ivana and Ivanka), Courtney Love, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, and uber-lawyer Alan Dershowitz, Alec Baldwin, Ralph Fiennes, Griffin Dunne, Ted Kennedy, David Koch, Andrew Jarecki, John Kerry, David Rockefeller, Prince Bandar of Saudi Arabia, Tony Blair, Mick Jagger, etc were also in there. (redacted version here: https://www.documentcloud.org/documents/1508273-jeffrey-epsteins-little-black-book-redacted.html).

But the real reason Trump shouldn't try to use any of this:

In 2010, Epstein pled the Fifth when asked by a lawyer representing one of Epstein's victims about his relationship with Trump:

Q: Have you ever had a personal relationship with Donald Trump?
A. What do you mean by "personal relationship," sir?
Q. Have you socialized with him?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. Yes?
A. Yes, sir.
Q. Have you ever socialized with Donald Trump in the presence of females under the age of 18?
A: Though I'd like to answer that question, at least today I'm going to have to assert my Fifth, Sixth, and 14th Amendment rights, sir.

Let's just say... with lyrics like 'she said fuck me like we fucked Bin Laden' and ', and '...gotta terrorize that pussy' let's just say it's NSFW. Also, you totally want to watch it.
