Imagine being *such a dipshit* that you side with spammers and telemarketers and other malware vendors.

Of course, Chuck Asay loves telemarketers because they're the only time a human will talk to him.

Bad news: The Alzheimer's drug isn't curing Alzheimer's the way we wanted.
Good news: It makes your teeth grow back?

Arkansas passes law allowing your rapist or your father[1] to sue you to prevent an abortion.

[1]: To be fair, Arkansas is a Repubican-voting state. Those are ALMOST CERTAINLY the same person.

Did you know that The Atlantic was founded in the mid 19th century? And that they have an author page for the articles Frederick Douglass wrote for them?

(And also that trump and Spicer both clearly have NO IDEA who Douglass was, or that he's dead and not a current figure. But let's leave the racist idiots aside and bask in "the greatest American of the 19th century also wrote essays for a current magazine")

There's something I'm desperately waiting for Marvel movies to use again.

There will be, at some point, an EPIC Hugo Weaving reveal, as the Red Skull returns. Everyone (including Captain America, who saw it happen) thinks the Red Skull touched the Tesseract and was disintegrated.

..... but that's not what happened. You won't see that special effect again until TWO MOVIES LATER, and it's not called out when it happens. No connection is made by the characters, but the visual FX are *absolutely identical*.

The Red Skull does not vanish because the Tesseract disintegrates him. He touches the Tesseract and disappears in a vertical beam, shimmering in all the colours of visible light. That's not disintegration.

That's a bridge. A rainbow bridge. The Red Skull is carried off by BIFROST.

And oh yes, he's coming back.

Northumbria University fined 400,000 GBP after a an experiment intended to study the effects of caffeine on exercise gave two volunteers 30g of caffeine each, instead of 0.3g.

(This is 2-4x the LD50 of caffeine in humans, BTW.)

The lab had switched to using powdered caffeine instead of tablets, and did the dose calculation on a mobile phone app, and neglected the decimal places. And nobody thought "hey, taking caffeine powder doses like it's a Costco-sized bottle of protein powder, that's MAYBE A LITTLE WEIRD?"

OK, fixed crossposting again. Sheesh.
