I am now convinced that god fully approves of my fandom. I was exhausted from walking around the museum and my phone was dead and I shambled to the nearest public plug and I sit down plug in my phone and look to my right and there is a comic book store. Now hopefully they have Assimilation2 #2 in stock.

Yeah, it accounts for a penny out of our...– Will McAvoy, The Newsroom Season one Episode one “We Just Decided To” So what happened was I heard the middle bit of this speech on NPR a couple of days ago and I was completely sold on the show. And the pilot episode, which HBO so generously aired on YouTube, did not disappoint. But,...
I seriously need to work on my site design.
The Real Life Secret Town Full of Scientists Who...
In 1942 the US Department of Defense built a top secret installation to develop new military technologies. They brought in some of the world’s biggest scientists. And they built a secret town to house thousands of workers and their families. That town was the source of world altering technology and continues today as the source of some of the most amazing scientific discoveries in the...

I don’t understand this whole drilling for oil in the ANWR problem. If the refuge is east of the big oil field why not drill west of the ANWR. Granted I am not a geologist so I don’t understand how the whole drilling for oil thing works anyhow.
Sandusky's Conviction Gives Me No Positive...
I couldn’t care less about Jerry Sandusky and whether or not he spends the rest of his life in prison. My heart breaks for the victims who could have been fewer in number had the adults in their lives paid attention to what was going on. And I can’t begin to express how angry I am that Mike McQueary walked into a shower, saw Jerry Sandusky molesting a child, and then told his boss...

This kind of thing sounds nice if you don’t know anything about the Internet or how it works. But the reality is, you can’t enforce identity on the internet. Mostly because the same people that propose these kinds of absurd laws don’t want a national ID card system let alone a national online identity system. To be brief, internet scarlet letter laws go into the pile of litmus...

motherjones: As in Karl Rove’s super-PAC. Smothered, covered, smeared. This makes me sad. And also glad that I moved Sunday Breakfast to a locally owned restaurant.

If you want to have a high power job with the State department then you understand that it comes with having a demanding schedule and you prepare your family for that reality. And if you can’t handle it then you can’t handle it. It’s the State department not some random office job where it doesn’t matter when you’re working as long as the work gets done. If you feel...
redditor captainpixystick explains the Affordable...
Bob: Hi, insurance company. I'd like to buy some health insurance.
Insurance company: No. You had cancer when you were 3 years old, and the cancer could come back. We're not selling you health insurance.
Bob: It's not my fault I got cancer when I was three! Besides, that was years ago!
Insurance company: If we sell insurance to you, we'll probably lose money, and we're not doing it.
Bob: But I need insurance more than anyone! My cancer might come back!
Insurance company: We don't care. We're not selling you insurance.
Obama: Hey, that's totally not fair. Bob is right, he does need insurance! Sell Bob some insurance.
Insurance company: If we have to, I guess.
Mary: This is cool. Obama said the insurance company has to sell insurance to anyone who needs it.
Sam: Hey, I have an idea. I'm going to stop paying for health insurance. If I get sick, I can always go buy some insurance then. The insurance company won't be able to say no, because Obama's told them they have to sell it to anyone who needs it!
Dave: that's a great idea! I'm not paying for health insurance either, at least not until I get sick.
Insurance company: Hey! If everyone stops paying for insurance, we'll go bankrupt!
Obama: Oh come on Sam and Dave, that's not fair either.
Dave: I don't care. It saves me money.
Obama: Oh for god's sake. Sam, Dave, you have to keep paying for health insurance, and not wait until you're sick. You too, Mary and Bob.
Mary: But I'm broke! I can't buy insurance! I just don't have any money.
Obama: Mary, show me your piggy bank. Oh, wow, you really are broke. Ok, tell you what. You still have to buy insurance, but I'll help you pay 95% of the cost.
Mary: thank you.
Obama: I need an aspirin.
Insurance company: We're not paying for that aspirin.

inothernews: In which Fox “News” anchor Chris Wallace labels heckling by Daily Caller “reporter” Neil Munro “outrageous” and says “I don’t think the guy should be allowed back in the White House on a press pass, and my guess is he won’t be.” Yes, really. You know you’ve fucked up when Fox news says you disrespected President Obama.

wilwheaton: laughterkey: nedhepburn: America has a serious, scary-ass gun problem. This is horrifying. Every single politician who voted for one of these Stand Your Ground laws is responsible for every single unnecessary death they’ve lead to. They are accomplices to murder. Here’s the problem though. The law is a really easy scapegoat here because most of America is unacustomed...
