  1. Ya wanna quote from a founding father about Christianity's place over the others? I got that. Lets start with George Washington's visit to the Touro Synagogue in Newport. https://founders.archives.gov/documents/Washington/05-06-02-0135 Or there's the 1796 treaty with Tripoli. Now, there were, granted, a lot of treaties ratified that tried to deal with the north African pirates, and this one only lasted three years before it was broken. Even so, the version that the US ratified included this little bit: Now, amusingly, this treaty was the victim of bad translation. The original in Arabic didn't even include this bit! Nevertheless, this is the version that the Senate and President John Adams ratified. Read again, a number of founding fathers didn't mind putting their names to that text.
  2. When you face problems, look for the opportunities.
  3. What about people who are plausibly undead, like Keith Richards?
  4. Opportunity was violent https://xkcd.com/1504/ We all remember those famous first words spoken by an astronaut on the surface of Mars: "That's one small step fo- HOLY S*** LOOK OUT IT'S GOT SOME KIND OF DRILL! Get back to the ... [unintelligible] ... [signal lost]" SPIRIT was the sad one https://xkcd.com/695/
  5. Wait, the sad one or the violent one?
  6. A good contrast between the Sanders plan for single payer with how it works (with private insurance) in other countries. https://www.vox.com/health-care/2019/2/12/18215430/single-payer-private-health-insurance-harris-sanders
  7. So we need a themed retirement home? I wonder if it already exists.
  8. I put cherry Kool-Aid powder in the shower head.
  9. Not a picture so much as a parody article, but funny nonetheless. https://newsthump.com/2019/02/06/adventurer-parents-to-hold-alignment-reveal-party-for-their-new-baby/ Adventurer parents to hold "alignment reveal party" for their new baby
  10. Oglaf.com is absolutely NSFW, but today was an exception.
  11. So it has only been less than a week since durkon was made undead? Huh. I thought it had been a couple months.
  12. What a lovely time for a CDC shutdown.
  13. We wait until World Creation Superdraft III.
  14. It IS fun to look at speculation on what a toroidal earth would be like. Just spin the sucker fast enough and you get one. Of course, you end up with a day/night cycle with just a few minutes.
  15. And here I wasn't even paying attention to Venezuela. Donald Trump said he does not recognize President Maduro as legitimate (preferring Juan Guaidó). So Maduro is ending diplomatic relations with the US, saying that the diplomats have 72 hours to leave. But Pompeo says Maduro does not have the authority, because he is not legitimate. https://www.vox.com/world/2019/1/23/18194881/venezuela-maduro-diplomats-trump-guaido I hope this all stays at the level of political bluster or Trump might just make a few more of those migrant caravans he fusses so much about.
