    Law of Mechanical Repair - After your hands become coated with grease, your nose will begin to itch and you'll have to pee. 2. Law of Gravity - Any tool, nut, bolt, screw, when dropped, will roll to the least accessible place in the universe. 3.

  • NASA Finds Perfectly Rectangular Iceberg In Antarctica As If It Was Deliberately Cut

    ASA just shared a stunning image of a nearly perfect rectangular iceberg in Antarctica. The monolithic slab of ice, floating just off the Larsen C ice shelf appears quite unnatural given the 90-degree angles. NASA took the image as part of Operation IceBridge, a mission to image Earth's polar regions in order to understand how ice (thickness, location, accumulation, etc.) has been changing in recent years.
  • Trump's failure to fight climate change is a crime against humanity

    CNN ^ | October 18, 2018 | By Jeffrey Sachs
    President Donald Trump, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, and others who oppose action to address human-induced climate change should be held accountable for climate crimes against humanity. They are the authors and agents of systematic policies that deny basic human rights to their own citizens and people around the world, including the rights to life, health, and property. These politicians have blood on their hands, and the death toll continues to rise. Trump and his minions are the loyal servants of the fossil-fuel industry, which fill Republican party campaign coffers. Trump has also stalled the fight against...
  • Neanderthal healthcare practices crucial to survival

    "We have evidence of healthcare dating back 1.6 million years ago, but we think it probably goes further back than this. We wanted to investigate whether healthcare in Neanderthals was more than a cultural practice; was it something they just did or was it more fundamental to their strategies for survival? "The high level of injury and recovery from serious conditions, such as a broken leg, suggests that others must have collaborated in their care and helped not only to ease pain, but to fight for their survival in such a way that they could regain health and actively participate...

    The mainstream media's Russian collusion story, based on no actual evidence, has almost run its course. So have the sexual assault stories about Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh. They never should have been printed because there was never any actual evidence or witnesses who said the assaults occurred. The economy is thriving instead of collapsing, which had been the prediction. Tax cuts are helping the entire economy instead of just the rich, as we were told. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has not been fired, as we have been told (multiple times) would happen. Health care costs are stabilizing instead...
  • (V): How Trump Pushes Kavanaugh Across The Finish Line

    Trump can push Kavanaugh across the finish line and in a very Trumpian way. 1) Mention casually and in a campaign speech that if the Senate doesn't confirm Kavanaugh, he has other nominees in queue and the next one is someone the Democrats *really* won't like. 2) Invite Larry Klayman to come visit the White House, through a side entrance to make it look like Trump is hiding him clumsily. 3) Invite Janice Rogers Brown to make the same visit only she arrives through the front door. 4) Invite Judge Roy Moore to visit the White House through the side...

    Former President Barack Obama is expanding his influence ahead of November's midterm elections. On Monday, he released a second slate of endorsements for Democrats running for offices ranging from local to national, bringing the total to more than 300. Among the most prominent candidates to win Obama's support are Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the Democratic congressional candidate who won an upset primary victory this summer in New York; Andrew Gillum, the Tallahassee mayor who is running for governor in Florida; and Kyrsten Sinema, the Democratic nominee for Senate in Arizona. While the candidates that Obama endorsed stretch up and down the ballot...
  • Climate change is making pigs skinnier, which could mean more expensive pork

    National Post - Canada ^ | September 25, 2018 | by Laura Brehaut
    Pork is the most widely consumed animal protein in the world. Representing more than 36 per cent of global meat-eating, a hit to production could have devastating effects. As a new Scientific American report suggests, a warming planet may result in skinnier pigs that produce less meat. The potential outcome: a future where pork is scarce and strips of bacon will cost you dearly. Previous studies have identified climate change as a threat to livestock in general as rising temperatures affect feed quality, availability of water and biodiversity. By 2050, worldwide demand for livestock products is anticipated to double, according...

    Donald Trump Jr. offered once more to help pay for “one-way” tickets for any Democrats who are still interested in leaving the country because Donald Trump became president.‘”Trump … A president so great, that Democrats who said they would leave America if he won, decided to stay,” a post on Trump Jr.’s Instagram account on Thursday read that included a photo of the president.The first son captioned the photo, “True story. I’ll help with one way tickets if they’re still interested…. only catch is they have to stay #winning.” Trump Jr. and his brother Eric Trump also made a similar offer...

    Dr. Howard Dean, a physician who previously served as the governor of Vermont, told MSNBC on Sunday that Donald Trump suffers from mental illness and he is unfit to be president. “I’ve long believed the president is mentally ill,” Dean said as part of a panel discussion hosted by Alex Witt, Raw Story reported. “And I believe narcissism overcomes his ability to know, A, what’s good for the country, and B, what’s good for him.”

    Now in private life, the former Massachusetts senator and Secretary of State under President Obama has watched as much of his political legacy – including the Iran nuclear deal and the climate change accord – has been upended under the Trump administration. Disappointment in those actions has motivated Kerry to attempt to help Democrats regain political control.

    A tunnel that stretches from a former Kentucky Fried Chicken in Arizona all the way to a home in Mexico was discovered last week by investigators, who believe the secret passageway was used for drug smuggling, KSWT reports. Homeland Security Investigations said the tunnel was discovered on August 13, after the owner of the former KFC, Ivan Lopez, was pulled over by the San Luis Police Department. A canine unit alerted officers to two toolboxes in Lopez' truck. Inside the boxes, authorities say they found 118 kilograms of methamphetamine, six grams of cocaine, three kilograms of fentanyl, 13 kilograms of...
