Ok, let’s start with the NSA data dump: boy howdy and I do mean dump. Big mean dookie here and the administration keeps adding to the pile. Advice to the White House: sunlight is a good disinfectant.
On Republicans: And a possible shutdown of the government (because that worked out so well for the Republicans during the Clinton Administration). But remember, they know better than 97% of scientists about climate change (and for those who are religious? Rush is wrong and if Jesus does come back he’s gonna be honked about what we’ve done with the planet). Oh, and alert the media, I agree with Roger Simon.
On Computer Literacy: Most people aren’t. Even those kids we think are so much better on the computer than their elders. At least many of the elders are aware of the things they don’t know.
An Accidental Invention: The teabag.
On the Labor Force: There is no labor shortage, duh. Alien workers — including the undocumented ones — are sought after because they are easily exploited. Interns are free labor (which means it can be a challenge for young workers to accept the so-called opportunity unless Mummy and Daddy pony up cash). Modern Capitalism looks a whole lot like Feudalism.
Real Life MacGyver: Snakes on a Catapult and 9 other great tricks.
The Truth about Eyeglasses: pupillary distance, and adjusting your frames.
Petroglyphs: Over 10,000 years old.
On a Happier Note: Steinway sold for $512,000,000. Interestingly enough, the C above Middle C should be tuned to 512 hertz.
No Credit isn’t Bad Credit: the unscoreables.
Accurate Title: Yes, Vaccinations Save Lives.
I Question Their Criteria: Edmunds.com’s list of “best” cars for short drivers doesn’t even mention adjustable belt points and properly proportioned seats.
Hmmm: Childhood obesity linked to school lunches and TV watching.
Scientists having a pissing contest: On de-extinction.
And finally: Goodnight iPad.
