  1. At least the Taliban won't get too much use out of it!
  2. This is from 2015 but I just stumbled across it. Frickin incredible. https://projects.propublica.org/graphics/boondoggle
  3. Comirnaty is probably the stupidest name for a drug ever and will literally cost lives because of people refusing to take it because the name sucks so hard. SpikeVax much better.
  4. (Desperately hoping this doesn't become a political thing but what can I do) 1) High school history teacher: During the American Revolution the muskets were so inaccurate that everybody lined up 30 feet away from each other but still couldn't hit anything because the bullets basically came out in random directions, which made the riflemen so effective! 2) (same teacher!) Average life expectancy in 1900 was about age 48, which meant by the time you were 30 your hair and teeth were falling out and you basically looked like an 85-year-old present day man.
  5. Dammit, we had a really good and heated thread on this like 10 years ago and I can’t find it. Opposing viewpoints were “ACW was basically a precursor to Ww1, technology wise, massive casualties etc.” vs “no it wasn’t” because uh I forget. Must be some good reading out there.
  6. Completely agree with the imperial presidency stuff.
  7. would prefer to see purges of Batman memes
  8. New reports saying the officer has not actually died -- I will stop obsessively following this for a while
  9. Scattered reports that he was brained with a fire extinguisher by a rioter but yeah, not much out there at this point https://www.kron4.com/news/national/u-s-capitol-police-officer-dies-after-violent-protests-bringing-death-toll-to-5/
  10. CNN reporting that one of the Capitol police officers has died. Guess that makes 5 dead now — Babbitt, three protestors dying of unspecified medical emergencies (far as I can tell one man died of a heart attack, and a really weird probably bullshit rumor going around that a woman accidentally tased herself to death) and the officer. Very sparse coverage on this, really strange.
  11. CNN reporting that one of the Capitol police officers has died.
  12. I like the "Capitol invasion was totally defensible and not a big deal PLUS also it was Antifa" people
  13. Maybe I’m an optimist but I honestly think that the MAGA crowd is going to shrink quite a lot after this.
  14. It kinda seems like some shit is going down in that respect, with the news that Trump wasn’t the one who called out the DC guard and O’Briens tweet about how he thinks Pence is great...
  15. And Trump needs to get kicked out immediately.
  16. https://www.nytimes.com/2021/01/06/us/politics/an-explosive-device-is-found-at-the-rnc-and-the-dnc-is-evacuated.html
  17. On the bright side, they don't believe in wearing masks
