Of course Donald Trump looked directly into the sun

quote [ Yes, our devil-may-care commander in chief did the thing he is best at and ignored the absolute unyielding consensus recommendation of the world’s doctors, scientists, and subject experts, and looked directly into the blinding motherfucking sun during the eclipse. Perhaps he did not understand the rationale behind the specially tinted glasses, or he merely did not think it applied to him; perhaps he forgot, or thought himself stronger than the sun itself. It really doesn’t matter. It was fate fulfilling itself, because of course if there is one single thing that everyone knows about the eclipse—you shouldn’t look directly at it—Donald Trump would do it.

Then do it a second time. ]

WTF is The Onion even supposed to write about now?

Uniformed Nazis in downtown Vancouver

quote [ In a scene that suddenly seems all too real nowadays, uniformed Nazis stood guard in downtown Vancouver yesterday while filming Amazon’s speculative fiction TV show The Man in the High Castle. ]

The actual Nazis didn't show for their rally, so the thousands of counterprotesters just through a street party.

quote [ Are boobs on the outs? This seems to be the case for millennials, at least in regards to their porn-viewing habits. New data released by Pornhub has revealed a rather distinct generational trend regarding our cultural fondness for breasts.

Their data revealed the younger the generation, the less interested they are in women’s mammaries. The data exhibits young adults ages 18 to 24 are almost 20 percent less likely to search for breast-related content on the site whereas those 55 to 64 were 17 percent more likely. The age groups in between ascend as viewers age increases. ]

You Bastards, you blew it up! God damn you all to hell! NSFW for thumb.

Charlottesville Rally Aimed To Defend A Confederate Statue. It May Have Doomed Others

quote [ White supremacists gathered near a Confederate monument Saturday with the stated intent of saving it. But after a weekend of violence, other cities are now speeding the removal of their own statues. ]

Thumb is from Durham, where people took it upon themselves to remove a Confederate statue. Hopefully more will follow.

Godwin of Godwin's Law: 'By All Means, Compare These Shitheads to the Nazis'

quote [ In this case, however, the discussion concerns “alt righters” marching in Charlottesville who were, well, flying swastikas, Sieg Heil-ing, and wearing shirts with Hitler quotes. And Godwin himself took to Facebook to let everyone know that if it walks like a Nazi and talks like a Nazi, you better let people know what it really is. ]

Stop calling them conservatives.

Interview: 20-Year Old Deandre Harris Speaks Out About Being Assaulted by White Supremacists in Charlottesville, Va.

quote [ Harris said if it wasn’t for his friends who noticed him under the pile of white supremacists and helping him, he probably wouldn’t be alive to tell his story. Harris is in the process of pressing charges and the photographer who took the photo is helping his mother identify the racists who took part in the attack.

After the photo made its rounds on social media, many people noticed that the parking garage where the assault took place was right near the Charlottesville police department. And of course, we know how this story goes. ]

Get your shit together, America. These are terrorists.

Our Broken Economy, in One Simple Chart

quote [ Many Americans can’t remember anything other than an economy with skyrocketing inequality, in which living standards for most Americans are stagnating and the rich are pulling away. It feels inevitable.

But it’s not. ]

But yeah, you should elect someone on the take from Wall Street. It'll work out alright.

Former bishop of Bountiful, B.C., found guilty of polygamy

quote [ A former religious leader in B.C. has been found guilty of polygamy after marrying more than two dozen women over the course of 25 years.

Winston Blackmore was charged with practising plural or "celestial" marriage in the fundamentalist community of Bountiful, B.C. ]

I'm not sure how I feel about this. They treat women like cattle, but how do you ban that and let respectful, healthy poly relationships be?

High-Ranking Republican Asks NASA Bizarre Question About Martians Live On TV

quote [ America’s House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology is, to put it politely, a joke.
The Republican-dominated chamber is lacking in actual scientists, full of climate change deniers, and it regularly shares Breitbart articles on its Trump apologist-themed Twitter feed of falsehoods. Despite being able to direct the country’s science policy, it is about as scientifically knowledgeable as a dog.

One of the high-ranking members of this committee, Dana Rohrabacher, has said some truly remarkable things in the past, but he’s just outdone himself. During a panel with several space science experts, including those from NASA, he asked: “Is it possible that there was a civilization on Mars thousands of years ago?” ]

UK spookhaus GCHQ can crack end-to-end encryption, claims Australian A-G

quote [ Well, the laws of Australia prevail in Australia, I can assure you of that. The laws of mathematics are very commendable but the only laws that applies in Australia is the law of Australia. ]
