Comment The kids are alright (Score 3, Funny) 80

Young people today are impressive. When I was a senior in college, I was turning milk bottles into bongs.

They were sweet bongs, though.

When I got to grad school, that all changed because I was suddenly surrounded by people smarter than me and I had to actually work. But those first seven years of college were a lot of fun.

This problem ain't just on Trump and Republicans.

Now it is. They control all three branches of government and could stop warrantless searches tomorrow if they so decided.

And Trump is the very last person who will relinquish the kind of power that warrantless searches give him.

This was buried at the very end of the story:

During a second, unofficial demonstration of the HorseFly for UPS on Monday, some sort of interference – possibly from the broadcast reporters’ cameras - caused an issue with the drone’s compass. The drone aborted its launch, tried to land on top of the UPS truck, fell to the side and was nearly crushed by the still-closing lid of the vehicle.

“We’ve never seen it before,” said Burns, of the glitch.

They already had this. It's called citing your sources and peer review.

Unless you're the president, in which case you can just make up any old bullshit that sounds good, even about nonexistent terrorist attacks, the "historical" margin of your electoral victory or the size of your inauguration attendance. Just because it makes you and your supporters feel good, which is the most important thing.
