The loud objection will come when they drop Win7.

Kenobi: "I felt a great disturbance in the Force, as if millions of nerds with tinfoil hats suddenly cried out in terror and were suddenly silenced. I fear something terrible has happened."
It's going to take a big roll or two.
Anyone still on XP/Vista had to see this coming from miles away.

Cheers to Samsung for apologizing and removing their haggard sexist hashtags, now if they would only remove the scourge that is bixby.

To be honest, taking a charging phone in the bathtub is imo intentional suicide
Not all 14 year old's have degrees in electrical engineering.
GFCI plugs are installed for that very reason.

Are GFCI plugs mandatory in Texas? Because sure doesn't seem like they were installed in this case. Or a modern circuit breaker for that matter.

Just realized in EU, this is so mandatory that we don't have custom plugs for that, we have it mounted directly in the circuit breaker box for ALL circuits in the house. It's 100% mandatory. So yeah, wtf is this case? Texan house without modern circuit breakers in 2017?
Is that the road you want to go down at night with no headlights. Not much can be done for pre-existing homes, and I imagine some older apartment's are grandfathered. Don't know and don't care, but to claim it's an obvious suicide is the coolest.

It's treasonous and it apparently runs in the family.
You can bet your ass you won't see that on Fox & friends, which needs to die already.

Stan Lee's wife just passed away....statistically that is not a good sign for him. We'll lose a major creative/comedic celebrity when he moves on. The MCU franchise has done a fantastic job of using him to help push the films....and unlike DC they have been well received for the most part.

Are you kidding me? They should have never let that egomaniac into the films. Just breaks the fourth wall all the time. And he doesn't deserve even 1/4 of the credit he claims. We'll lose nothing except another egomaniac in a world overflowing with them. You're the first person I've ever heard that even remotely likes him, much less believes he's a major talent, lol!
Nothing is less edgy than an Angry white man acting angry just for attention. Sad

WalMart fires an underpaid employee who was already receiving government assistance.

You get to stand in line waiting for billy bob to figure out "how to operate this confounded contraption", all the while you're enjoying the smell of his kids "loaded" diapers.

Wal-Marts, the bane of white trash everywhere.

Exactly, well said. Why do stars fuse hydrogen into helium? There is no 'why'. It is what happens.

You really want to have your mind fucked read or listen to that book I linked to Kxmode about Something Rather Than Nothing.

Thanks! I'll give it a review.

I also like the excellent assortment of Blu-ray quality scientific documentaries on Curiosity Stream. Of course whenever they drift into the evolutionary aspect of the planet's "creation" then I tend to zone out. The earth is too well formed with thousands of complex interconnected systems to be a randomly created oddity in the cosmos. Anyhow, again, thanks for the read suggestion.
When it gets to the sci-ency parts my brain turns off.
Holy Shit batman

Unfortunately, the better videos I have seen were on TV, not on the Internet. Many professional cyclists have come forward to say they believe a disqualification is too harsh a punishment. I certainly would hope they know more than I do...
A tie goes to the runner.
Several progressional cyclist have come forward to say they believe it was a grievous offense.
“There was no reason for that elbow,” said Hammond. “As a former professional bike rider I know the way it is done.”

Smart to not trust Trump with voter info.
when offered the ring Gandalf said: "Don't tempt me Frodo! I dare not take it. Not even to keep it safe. Understand Frodo, I would use this Ring from a desire to do good. But through me, it would wield a power too great and terrible to imagine."

I doubt Tangerine Jesus would respond that intelligently.

Even in the Soviet Union, during the worst of its dark years under Stalin, they didn't dare dismiss the work and findings of scientists at home, and even across the globe.

It's probably a bit late in the day to head of this particular piece of anti-trump hysteria but it reminded me of this editorial in Nature:
http://www.nature.com/news/beware-the-anti-science-label-1.21956

It's not anti-dipshit hysteria, it is
Pro-America tranquility.

Good article btw.

Nice thread hijack attempt. Stop this bullshit, plenty of scientists are very religious. Or at least believe in creation. Einstein was a pretty famous one who did too. They are just smart enough to not mix beliefs with actual facts. The best scientist is one who asks questions and looks for answers. Not one who already believes he has answers and then attempts to validate them. So stop your religious trolling once and for all.
Don't tease him when he can't respond.

I'm sure many of you are familiar with the expression "pearls before swine." Jesus uses this expression as counsel in his Sermon on the Mount. Notably, he states, "Do not give what is holy to dogs, neither throw your pearls before swine, that they may never trample them under their feet and turn around and rip you open." (Matthew 7:6) In the Bible pearls illustratively were associated with wisdom. Evidently, Jesus meant that, if a person shows that they have no appreciation for spiritual things one should not further endeavor to share religious thoughts and teachings with the person.

Very much duly noted! You guys can thank Jesus for his wise words and indirect principle to stop posting such things here. In other words, I am personally banning myself of such posts.
He's slept since then.

The question is can the president constitutionally be obstructive? He's the top dog and according to experts he can initiate, stop, or block any investigation -- even Comey said that. Does it disrupt the function of our democracy? That's what Congress must decide.
Oh, they can -- but the GOP controlled House won't. As I have said previously, barring a legally created recording of Trump admitting to a criminal offense, he will not be impeached.
The president can commit any crime he wants then grant himself clemency, per the Constitution. I bet the Repubs still would not impeach him.
It's good to be the king, with sean spicer playing the roll of piss boy.

I liked milk as a kid and I still like it now. Probably drank a half gallon or more a day all the way up to and through high school. Real milk, whole milk. Can't stand that 2% or skim stuff. And I can't say what portion it played, probably a lot less than my genes, but I did grow to be 6' 2.5" tall.

That said, I don't drink it that much these days because I prefer to not "drink my calories". But every now and then I'll splurge and buy a gallon.
There is no substitute for cow juice on cereal or a full glass with a chocolate chip cookie.
