Not Breaking, but Interesting News

26 October 2015

 
 
We all need access to the global portal that is the Internet, and not just for the free porn. I can’t imagine having to do research or work on projects without the timesaving ease of hopping online. Yes, I know this is how things were done a long time ago, but that time has come to a close. Wi-Fi vans are great, but we need more. The Internet should be a public utility.

 
Good luck to those fine people fighting the good fight in Colorado. I live in a part of the country where a guy is choosing to live in a box truck, so he can pay off debt. Renting an apartment in Silicon Valley for a price that allows you to pay off debt simultaneously, is no easy task, even when you work for Google. Looks like the world hates poor people more than I thought.

 
The real enemy isn’t weed; it’s fake weed. Well, that and the continued criminalization of a drug that has long been proved to be safer than alcohol and cigarettes, which kill millions and are easily obtainable without going to jail.

If you weren’t in mourning due to last night’s episode of The Walking Dead, you sure as hell were by the time you read this. If this is your first time reading about the World Health Organization’s latest findings, my condolences. I’m going to miss Bacon too. However, to be fair, everything we do and eat is probably killing us in some way and if it isn’t, time will surely get us. Have a lovely rest of your day.

 
Know anyone with diabetes, Parkinson’s or Alzheimer’s? Welp, looks like those folks are even more screwed because of the anti-Planned Parenthood videos that came out not too long ago. Despite being heavily edited, to the point of flat out lying, they’ve done their damage, just not where intended. Good work, you manipulative jerks.

 
Dear America, we’re self-absorbed, un-cultured psychos. This has been going on for 50 years. We should be ashamed of ourselves for just finding out. Personally, I’m more amused than ashamed, but you probably already knew that.
