Out of the Blue

So happy Prime Day, as today marks Amazon's now-annual celebration of Amazon. This offers discounts for Amazon Prime customers, providing a great chance to fill out your waterproof Bluetooth speaker collection. If it seems like I'm giving you the hard sell, that's because we're in on the deal, since we'll get a cut on any purchases you make after navigating to Amazon using our Amazon.com, Amazon.co.uk, or Amazon.de links, so thanks to all who take the effort to do so. Also, today is 7/11 day, so there's a chance to get a free Slurpee today from 7-Eleven, so enjoy that as well. Sadly, it's probably too late to order a wool hat from Amazon to stave off headaches from taking in your Slurpee too fast.

Prime Links: Thanks Ant and Acleacius.
Story: Air Canada near-miss at SFO sparks FAA probe.
Science: Drinking more coffee can lead to a longer life, new studies say.
Images: Two Galaxies Zooming Past One Another Captured in Hubble Image.
Media: Epic tree removal fail.
Transmission - Apollo Gauntlet. Thanks [H]ardOCP via RedEye9.

Actually I forgot to use the Blue link (sorry Blue), but picked up a Echo Dot when they went on sale last night. Nifty little device.

Using a steering wheel on a Burnout game is like using the Space Shuttle controls to fly a kite.

That Air Canada near-miss is actually pretty crazy.. it's crazy because of how well lit those runways are with marker lights..

It's incredibly impressive that he didn't line up with the correct runway.

The solution to the toxicity of identity politics surely isn't to add white identity politics to the mix.

In the near future, all national holidays will be replaced with corporate ones. We'll have the day off in order to facilitate our capitalist orgy of spending.
I order everything from Taco Bell using Taco Bell internet and I can either have it delivered by Taco Bell home delivery or just pick it up at the Taco Bell counter. Oddly enough, their Brawndo slushies mutilate thirst on a hot summer day.

Hmmm, did they outlaw swearing, too? Is murder/death/kill a thing?
