Flat-Earthers Cruise Will Sail to Antarctica Ice Wall at the Planet's Edge.

quote [ Believers in a flat Earth will have an opportunity to sail to Antarctica in 2020 on a cruise organized by the Flat Earth International Conference. ]

They should have 2 cruise ships head off in different directions. Hilarity will ensue when they both meet up at Antarctica at the same time.

Facebook, Instagram Down Around the World For Some Users

quote [ People around the world started reporting the outage on Twitter with the hashtag #facebookdown.

Facebook tweeted at 3:03 p.m. ET that it was working on fixing the problems, which appeared to begin just around noon ET, as soon as possible. But it said it didn't believe the issues were related to a DDOS (distributed denial of service) attack, a common way of bringing down websites by overwhelming them with requests. ]

In San Diego facebook is flat out dead as a doornail at the moment. Where are the old folks gonna post their articles about pizzagate now?

The Pentagon may tap military pay and pension funds to build Trump's US-Mexico border wall

quote [ WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon is planning to tap $1 billion in leftover funds from military pay and pension accounts to help President Donald Trump pay for his long-sought border wall, a top Senate Democrat said Thursday.

Sen. Dick Durbin, D-Ill., told The Associated Press, "It's coming out of military pay and pensions. $1 billion. That's the plan." ]

At this point - all I can do is laugh when this shit comes out of DC now.

Michael Cohen's testimony prompts a new question: In web of Trump investigations, is anyone safe?

quote [ ...after the Democratic National Committee said Russian hackers had stolen troves of emails. It became the first inkling that “Americans might be working with the Russians,” former FBI Director James Comey would later tell a House committee.

Nearly three years later, the investigation launched from that single contact has taken down a half-dozen senior aides to President Donald Trump, including his campaign chairman Paul Manafort, national security adviser Michael Flynn and personal attorney Michael Cohen. And it has cascaded far beyond that, into Trump's campaign and private business. ]

Giant 'Glory Hole' sucks in rainwater as storms swell California lake

quote [ Reservoir’s flood drain was expected to be used once every 50 years, but has seen action twice in last two. ]

This was just way too good a headline to not post. The entire article brings out my inner 14 year old...now if they would just bust out the ol' B.B.C. line in the article, it would be PERFECT.

This is the BBC at the glory hole...back to you Guardian.

SF district attorney to wipe out 9,000-plus pot cases going back to 1975

quote [ San Francisco District Attorney George Gascón announced Monday that his office will wipe out more than 9,000 marijuana-related convictions in an unprecedented step following California’s cannabis legalization more than two years ago.

Gascón last year teamed up with Code for America — a nonprofit focused on using open-source technology to improve government — to find every marijuana case eligible for expungement or resentencing under Proposition 64. San Francisco will be the first city in the country to clear all eligible pot convictions. ]

Great news! We need the rest of California and the country to follow suit now.

Rotten Tomatoes Is Changing Its Audience Rating System Because of Trolls

quote [ Even though the general public has not yet had the chance to see Captain Marvel, that didn’t stop trolls from preemptively trashing the film on Rotten Tomatoes in what can only be described as an sexism-fueled attempt at convincing people that a movie about a female superhero couldn’t possibly be good. Now, the ratings site is taking action to deal with the problem. ]

Damn - I guess I'm gonna have to go to youtube comments to get my fill of trollish and racist comments now.
