Lots of lukewarm Trump-bashing, but this one was good:
Politico: "Analysis: Millions of Americans believe God made Trump president"
TheTweetOfGod: "Meta-analysis: Millions of Americans are fucking morons."

..
That human candle was satisfying for some reason :D

..
Based on this pretty unimaginative Onion headline, I'm guessing that one of the Onion writers just learned about the meaningless "Bechdel Test" (The Bechdel Test has an incorrect underlying assumption/subtext that movies that do not have multiple women who speak to each other about something other than men are not feminist or forward-thinking movies):
"Sci-Fi Film Presents Vision Of Future In Which Women Never Speak To Each Other"
[Onion News in Brief]
http://ent...e-in-which-women-ne-1822674263
"LOS ANGELES—Touted as a bold imagining of 26th-century life, the science fiction movie Day Of The Crimson proposes a vision of the future in which women rarely—if ever—speak to each other, sources confirmed Friday. “Even beyond its taut pacing and gorgeous cinematography, the film offers a glimpse at an alternate reality in which women still exist, but engage in no meaningful exchanges whatsoever,” said New York Times film critic A.O. Scott, noting that when the women of this advanced society do speak to each other, their dialogue centers around one or more prominent male characters. “In the lush world the filmmakers have created, one 500 years removed from our own, there seem to be be fewer women in general… Apart from the throngs of ever-present female sex robots, only a scant few appear, and none over the age of 40.” Despite early hype, several reviewers on the website Rotten Tomatoes claim the film—which was written by James Gunn, directed by Christopher Nolan, stars Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto, and opens in theaters nationwide June 9—borrows its female-conversation subplot from several thousand other movies released from 1927 to last week."

"FBI Warns Republican Memo Could Undermine Faith In Massive, Unaccountable Government Secret Agencies"
[Onion News in Brief]
http://pol...rmine-faith-in-mass-1822639681
"WASHINGTON—Stressing that such an action would be highly reckless, FBI Director Christopher Wray warned Thursday that releasing the “Nunes Memo” could potentially undermine faith in the massive, unaccountable government secret agencies of the United States. “Making this memo public will almost certainly impede our ability to conduct clandestine activities operating outside any legal or judicial system on an international scale,” said Wray, noting that it was essential that mutual trust exist between the American people and the vast, mysterious cabal given free rein to use any tactics necessary to conduct surveillance on U.S. citizens or subvert religious and political groups. “If we take away the people’s faith in this shadowy monolith exempt from any consequences, all that’s left is an extensive network of rogue, unelected intelligence officers carrying out extrajudicial missions for a variety of subjective, and occasionally personal, reasons.” At press time, Wray confirmed the massive, unaccountable government secret agencies were unaware of any wrongdoing for violating constitutional rights."

+1 Deer on Watchmen. Really like that movie, and that opening scene was great.

"Wonder Woman's theme song is excellent"
+1 Deer!
I do like that each character has his or her own theme song :D .. just wish that DC had had the patience to do a movie for Flash and Aquaman before making Justice League. Marvel fans get all of *their* crappy movies, why not DC?? :( :(
;p
(I am aware that Flash and Aquaman have movies coming up in 2020 and 2018, but I mean cinematic backstory *before* the team-up)

"less requiring the saving of the entire earth from destruction"
Yeah couldn't they have dealt with a smaller issue for their first team-up? Like maybe Lex had designed some elaborate psyche-maze that messed with them mentally? ..something to showcase Lex' intellect while trapping the heroes somehow :D

..
Nice favorites! :D "Too Many Cooks" is great. I've been surprised by how few people in the real world are aware of it. Quelle tragédie!

lol@Star Trek Closer edit. That was... some very compressed homo-eroticism XD

..Looking at my YouTube favorites.. looks like I only ever used it years ago to favorite some piano stuff. Like my first favorite was of this person "chocotiger" who has my favorite version of Beethoven's "Piano Sonata No.8, Op.13, 1st Mvt. 'Pathetique'"
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fi8pAv8BVoU
..he has a few mistakes, but the professional versions/players don't seem to have his emotion, which counts a lot more I think.
..also favorited the ending scene of "Still Breathing", the theater scene from "Donnie Darko", SP's "Try Try Try", and Natalie Walker's SP cover "Galapagos".. last updated 2013 — I've got to start favoriting again :D

===================

An argument that took place at a Missouri sports bar last week turned deadly as men feuded over the size of a German Shepherd dog, police said.

Scott Beary, a 43-year-old father of three, died Wednesday after he was shot at Show-Me’s Sports Bar & Grill in Florissant, KMOV reported. Beary’s friend and co-worker, Ryan Jacobsmeyer, was reportedly injured in the incident.

Witness Carl Leavy told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch that an argument broke out about the dog’s weight, as the alleged gunman’s friend said his German Shepherd was 290 pounds — but Beary didn’t believe it, and quipped that he was 325 pounds and couldn't imagine a dog close to his size.

Beary and the alleged gunman reportedly exchanged numbers after talking about construction jobs. As Beary was leaving, according to Leavy, he allegedly jokingly told the shooter not to have hard feelings regarding their disagreement.

The witness claimed that the gunman called Beary a rude name, and added that Beary allegedly threw a punch and the suspect then fired.

The unidentified 54-year-old man who witnesses allege pulled the trigger was arrested and booked Wednesday on suspicion of second-degree murder, the Post-Dispatch reported.

The suspect is not yet facing any charges due to insufficient evidence, despite four hours of surveillance video and more than 20 interviews from those who witnessed the incident, St. Louis County Prosecuting Attorney Bob McCulloch said.

It’s unclear, according to McCulloch, whether the alleged gunman acted in defense of himself or provoked the situation at the bar — which makes it difficult to file charges.

Bummer :( .. maybe Spock would surprise people by saying that it's illogical not to battle to the death over issues of truth. Like if the dog really is 290 pounds, then the owner was obligated to fight for that truth ;D

Oh neat! Someone had posted that on Imgur, but of course they gave zero details and no source.
The thing that didn't make sense was that he fled on foot from his *own* car after causing that accident... I wonder if maybe he thought he'd report it stolen or something?..

[Me]: "Nice work and nice cat, but you started with a selfie, so that's a -1"
[7ofNein; the original poster]: "Its not a selfie if someone else takes the photo. Why is that such a hard concept to grasp?"
[Me]: "It must be a difficult concept for you to grasp that "selfie" informally includes any picture of oneself, particularly those done in vanity."

I was expecting her to debate the definition of "selfie", at which point I'd say something about how her inability to grasp definitions wouldn't undo her blatantly grotesque vanity, but now it's been a day without responses so it's probably over :p

..this kind of makes me wonder if the surge in selfies on Imgur have come from people who think that they've found this magical semantic loophole. Hmm..

nice detective work

that driver managed to avoid the human while still smashing the car w/ Terminator-like precision (the wussy Terminator who was ordered not to kill people)

"how did doubles luge become a thing?"

One of the weirder Olympic sports to be sure :D

..
"this road rage thing"

I blurted out "oh my gods" when the SUV started rolling up the side of the car — pretty spectacular in the spectacle sense :D
..peeps annoyed by the filmer, but she did give a little backstory.. sounds like the BMW car driver jumped into the HOV lane specifically to cut in front of the SUV as payback for something? This probably didn't do any positive work for BMW drivers, since they seem to have a bad reputation for being discourteous ;p
..this article says that the BMW guy fled the scene, was tracked down, and was charge with misdemeanor assault for the spitting, though the SUV driver was charged with felony assault for attacking with his vehicle:

..the first part seems to be a recurring gag; there have been other videos where they give a small bear, a larger bear, then a very large bear, though the ending variation might be new.. so like, 99% sure that the girl is an actor :p

Bombardier Beetles Squirt Boiling Anal Chemicals to Make Frogs Vomit

Bombardier beetles are often unlucky snacks for frogs, but they have a tricky defense mechanism even after being eaten—make the frogs throw them back up. When threatened, the beetles shoot out a boiling mix of chemicals with incredible force. In one study, 43% of beetles survived being eaten and regurgitated by the frogs.


video of beetle being eaten & of the squirting when agitated... Coyote Peterson should see how bad that hurts:

"boiling" for sure D: .. the steam rising from the spray was pretty neato. Coyote should definitely eat like, 30 of them ;D

awww@monkey vid ♥:D
Nice when one of the monkeys reached out to that apparent alpha monkey like, "Hey, it's [monkey name], don't you want to hug him too? ... you're so despondent! Why don't you love us?? :'(" ;p

The trick to a good boiled dog soup is to slowly increase the temperature so that they don't know that they're dying:

the father monkey was being the proper distant authority figure as noted by Colbert:

“A father has to be a provider, a teacher, a role model, but most importantly, a distant authority figure who can never be pleased. Otherwise, how will children ever understand the concept of God?”


& yeah, i too was thinking Coyote should swallow a proportional number :p ... proportional to stomach lining thickness perhaps vs volume

An Uber Eats driver (Robert Bivines, 36) wanted in connection with the fatal shooting of a customer turned himself in to authorities on Monday.

Police said the shooting happened about 11:30 p.m. Saturday in the city's Buckhead neighborhood after the victim, identified by the Fulton County medical examiner's office as Ryan Thornton, placed a food order via his smartphone app.

"The victim went down to meet the driver, received his order and began walking away from the vehicle," police said. "As the victim was walking away, it appears words may have been exchanged between he and the delivery driver. Shots were apparently fired from the delivery vehicle, striking the victim."

Bivines' attorney, Jackie Patterson, said his client had trouble finding Thornton's address to make the delivery. Once he found the address, Thornton came down visibly upset and snatched the food from Bivines' hand, according to Patterson.

There was a verbal altercation after Thornton screamed a profanity toward Bivines, the attorney said.

Patterson said Bivines then saw Thornton turn around and reach into his jacket pocket.

Thornton allegedly told Bivines that he was going to "F***k you up," Patterson said. Fearing for his life, Patterson says Bivines shot Thornton.

Asked why his client fled, Patterson said Bivines was traumatized and panicked in the moment. "He got scared," Patterson said.

moral: be nice to your delivery person

Always be nice to service industry peeps! Or as per "Waiting" (2005), "Don't *fuck* with people who handle your food"

..Instagram videos like this annoy me a little.. like, is it supposed to have sound? I'm not too familiar with Instagram, but it seems like people disable the sound to the videos sometimes, and the only way you can tell is that the volume button isn't available?
