Owning a Cat Does Not Lead To Mental Illness, Study Finds

The people who did this study never met the lady who lives on the end of my block. She's completely cuckoo and owns like a hundred cats. Sometimes they wander over to my yard just to get away from the old bat. I'll bet if I walk outside right now, there'll be one sitting on the cushion on one of my deck chairs. He likes to hang out with me when I sit outside at night and watch the basketball game. Wait, does that mean I own a cat? Holy shit. I better get myself checked out.

Can't do it all in a month; who'd a thunk it?

He was able to take 3 vacations and golf six times in a month, and nobody thought that was possible. Considering passing and signing legislation is their one fucking job, you'd think they'd be able to fit a single bill outlawing warrantless wiretaps into their busy schedule. But wait, Congress is on recess, meeting with their "constituents" (donors).

Everyone is impressive when they are unburdened (or unaware) of regulations, red tape, laws, administrative paperwork, and a host of other headaches. And have the blessing of time, no domestic obligations, and a supportive 'go for it' environment & friends. And I am appreciative of this invention.

Oh, fuck off. Do you have any idea how many technological and scientific advancements were made over the past few decades, when we were told there was, "too much regulation"?

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.
