See link below for article about how this ad pisses off an Australian Christian group and what they’re doing about it. Me? I’m going to buy Australia’s Volley sneakers when my current ones wear out. The company’s liberal/progressive policies will definitely get my vote. And, I vote with my wallet.

FDR’s Fireside Chats are still within living memory, albeit not mine. But, of course, I’ve heard about them. I’m not sure if that’s true of younger generations.

Robert De Niro would like to punch Donald J. Drumpf in the face, a worthy goal indeed. But, disturbingly, he insults animals by comparing them to Drumpf in the process of telling us why he’d like to punch the Donald.

Her Code Got Humans on the Moon—And Invented Software Itself
She showed an incredible amount of foresight in anticipating the human element in computer use. It almost wouldn’t surprise me if she had invented the term luser. Note that the L is silent, of course, but if said properly, the tone of voice makes the L more than apparent despite its silence.

Scientists: Earth Endangered by New Strain of Fact-Resistant Humans
“Our research is very preliminary, but it’s possible that they will become more receptive to facts once they are in an environment without food, water, or oxygen”
Perhaps. Or, we’ll become less resistant to facts by being less alive.
