    Hello everyone!

    Thanks for the FP, Nerdy.

    I just have to say: Hydration makes all the difference. I’ve felt so energized for the past 2 weeks with proper daily hydration. Drink your water, Obots!

    Every time Bernie says “oligarchs”, an AR15 is sold w/o a background check… or an angel gets it wings. Can’t recall which. #BerningBridges

    So why do Bernie Sanders think that President Obama is cooking the unemployment numbers? Just another reason why I don’t even bother listening to him. I am hoping VP Biden will run, if not I will vote for you know who. But it won’t be Bernie Sanders.

      Both Elizabeth Warren and, now, Bernie Sanders just seem to be yelling all the time, to me. Like bloviators. They have no graciousness. No style. They apparently want me off their lawn, but I can’t figure out why. One’s pointing her finger, and he seems to be spitting when he speaks. I’m like the little kid who blocks out what her parents are saying, because they’re yelling ~ and then, having learned nothing from all the yelling, asks for an ice cream cone.

        Well done, Jacqueline!! 🙂

        JO’B, this kind of yelling goes on all the time in some local Dem meetings I attend. It’s the new style. When you can’t make a rational argument, just shout at someone and try to overcome them with your decibel level. I think a lot of these people picked it up from Republicans. They think it’s effective, but it’s a huge turnoff.

          And you are such a sweetheart, with beautiful and effective language skills, I don’t know how you persevere. I applaud you, though!

    The laundry place wasn’t that bad:) I put my clothes in 2 big machines and all of it was done in 1/2 hour. My dryer works fine, so I’ll dry them here…while I was gone, news on my NEW washer…they are giving me a $500 voucher toward my new machine, I can transfer the service agreement I just bought, to the new one, and if all goes well, maybe I can have this new one by the weekend. I was frustrated and told all 40 people I spoke with, that was the case. Honestly, there was one girl that went out of her way for me…she’s getting a special thank you critique from me:)

    South Carolina’s Senate has passed a bill to remove the Confederate flag from the state capitol in Columbia.

    It was put forward after the flag was linked to a gunman who killed nine people at a Charleston church in June.

    The bill must now pass by a two-thirds majority in the House of Representatives before being sent to the governor for approval.


    The bipartisan bill would remove the flag from the South Carolina State House, where the legislature sits.

    The bill passed a crucial second reading by an overwhelming vote of 37-3 on Monday after an emotional debate in the state Senate.


    2/3rds needed for removing the effing racist flag?

      I think I recall something about fact the 2/3rds requirement was built into the original order to move it to the nearby racist monument. Probably the only way the remaining confederates would agree then to move it off the state house proper.

    Stupendous, informative collection. Thank you, Chips.

    All I can say is Bernie advocating for guns, yuck
    Trump filled with crazed hate, even yuckier
    And the suspense with Nuclear Deal, filling me with tension and a little dread of being severely let down,
    What a day.

    Great roundup, Chiparoo!

    Bernie the hypocrite strikes again. First Gitmo, then racism, now guns. Three cheers for the liberal/socialist/independent – whatever the f**k he’s calling himself today.

    For all you carnivores out there 😎

    “PITMASTERS, THIS WILL be hard to swallow: Some of the best smoked brisket comes out of Cambridge, Massachusetts. And it practically cooks itself.
    The secret is in the smoker. And the secret to the smoker is everything a group of 16 Harvard engineering students could do to turn the finicky art of smoking meat into a controlled, semiautomated science. In prototype form, the smoker looks like a combination of a giant pepper mill, a tandoori oven, and V.I.N.CENT from The Black Hole. It weighs 300 pounds. It has a refueling chute built into the side of it. And it uses a proportional-integral-derivative controller, a Raspberry Pi, and fans to regulate its own temperature, automatically producing an ideal slow-and-low burn.

    Why would a group of Harvard students build this? Because they had to. Engineering Problem Solving and Design (ES96) is a required class for engineering majors at Harvard—most of them, anyway. “Mechanical engineers, it’s not a required class for them,” says bioengineering major Jordan DeGraaf. “There are no mechanical engineers who take this class. They just run away.” ES96’s projects and professors vary each semester, but the concept stays consistent. Classes need to work as a team—across disciplines such as biology, electrical engineering, and environmental engineering—to design, build, and test a solution to a real-world problem….continued”

    Jeez, the Iran talks – I can’t imagine this much discussion and still not an agreement. I think it’s incredible that the world has this much fear of the Iranians getting a nuclear weapon when the US, UK, Russia, China, India, Pakistan, Israel and France actually HAVE over 17,000 warheads combined and most have invaded other countries in the not too distant past.

    “The constellation of Orion is named after a great hunter, but if we wanted to be scientifically accurate, it should be named after a nursery instead. After all, thousands of stars are being born in the direction. The Great Nebula of Orion, M42, is a classic star-forming gas cloud, visible to the naked eye as the middle star in Orion’s “dagger.” And while M42 gets all the press, right next to it is a smaller but no less dramatic nebula, M43. Stars are forming there, too, and when you mix young, massive, hot stars and dense clouds of gas and dust, what you get is beauty. Voilà!

    The picture was taken by Yuri Beletsky and Igor Chilingarian…this is far and away the most stunning. They used the monster 6.5 meter Magellan telescope in Chile coupled with a fantastically sensitive camera called the MMIRS, which can see into the near-infrared part of the spectrum.The colors you see here are all different wavelengths of infrared light; blue is actually light at 1 micron (just outside what the human eye can see), green at 1.6, and red at 2.2. At these colors, interstellar dust that blocks visible light is more translucent…continued”

      LP, these photos are amazing, stunning, glorious! I never thought it would be possible to see such a miraculously beautiful sight. Thank you.
