Judge Cannon refused to step down from Trump's classified docs case: NYT
  • Her job is done anyway. It'll be years before this case can proceed and if Adolf Donnie Trump weasels his way into office, it goes away forever. She's successfully delayed it into oblivion.

    I'm honestly surprised she didn't just outright dismiss it from the getgo.

  • If only everyone wishing to be older already knew this part
  • Yeah, what I've found is that school personalities just transition into adult life. The bullies are middle managers, etc. Adults are every bit as childish as they were in school. It's just a different kind of playground.

  • Pornhub to leave five more states over age-verification laws
  • I don't think pornhub wants your ID.

    I live in Texas and just tested the site to see if anyone has changed. It hasn't since they essentially shut down here.

    It's a full page statement about Texas politicians.

    There's no option to submit an ID even if a person wanted to do so.

    But maybe I've misunderstood who "them" is in your comment.

  • Texas megachurch pastor resigns after admitting to molestation claims in 1980s
  • God I was going to UNT football games when Todd Dodge was there. It seemed like all of Southlake was attending those games. I hate him with a white hot intensity. I hate his acolytes orders of magnitude more.

    The few times I've been through Southlake, I felt like a needed a shower with some 36 grit sandpaper as a loofa.

  • Texas megachurch pastor resigns after admitting to molestation claims in 1980s
  • About ten years ago, I worked for a small firm where most of the partners attended this very church.

    One of the reasons I left was that I felt completely out of place as they integrated their religion into the office culture.

    When I left, the managing partner would send me handwritten letters for YEARS effectively telling me that while I had chosen damnation for myself, I owed it to my daughter to have the opportunity for salvation by attending this specific gateway Church in Southlake.

    If I didn't have so much disdain and bitterness, I'd be tempted to send him this article.

  • Main road to Grindavík (Iceland) is covered under lava
  • That's always been my response when manager and owner use that whole "nobody wants to work anymore," thing because they can't get people to take offers for six bucks a year.

    Every single time I hear that, I say out loud, "Well I certainly don't want to work. Who in their right mind does? That's why we get paid to do it."

  • I did shave them.
  • Growing up in coastal California, the uniform for all genders was shorts and a hoodie, often of the Mexican variety.

    Now I'm old and my shorts wearing habit is apparently dad mode.

    Whatevs with the dad thing. Be comfortable.

  • More parents are taking on debt to pay for Disney vacations as prices soar
  • The only reason I ever took my kid to Disneyland was because we lived in southern California and knew somebody who worked there that gave us free passes.

    It was a great day that my now adult daughter doesn't remember at all.

    I loved my own childhood trip to Disneyland in 1979 when it was a much, much simpler and cheaper affair.

    If I had kids today, Disney would be completely off the table.

  • Fair and Balanced
  • That's the going canon.

    But of the many, many reasons to celebrate her absence from this current iteration of mortal coil, what she liked to do behind closed bedroom doors is not one of them for me.

  • It's sad to see so many good titles get ruined because of this
  • Who pays to watch these things? Like Fast and Furious part 47 is clearly making money as is Comic book hero vs other comic book anti-hero part 32.

    I know I'm old, but I can't even name the year when I last paid to go see a movie.

  • Math
  • Most of the math I do at work is related to compound interest. Of all the math I believe the general public should understand, the concept of how paying interest to others is a total screw would get my top vote.

    I have a co-worker who took out a car loan last week at, wait for it, FIFTY THREE PERCENT INTEREST! No concept of what that was costing her. She could only see, "I can afford the monthly payment."

    (1 + r)^n and its friend 1/(1 + r)^n have been the two most important concepts in work and personal life that I've ever learned and applied.

  • me whenever hbomberguy uploads a new video
  • I know several of those. One I don't see listed is stuff made here. If you're a fan of backyard scientist, you're gonna love stuff made here.

    Smarter everyday is really a special one. The way that guy involves his kids and his own boyish excitement when he finally gets an experiment right is downright heartwarming. Then there was the whole episode checking in on physics girl. He had no particular incentive to do that. He just really seems to care.
