This is going to set back medical trust for years
  • Agreed. Handing over personal info is not unlike handing the wrong person a loaded gun.

  • I dunno, man. Texas is a human rights violator through their prison system. I imagine it won't be a picnic.

  • The dying gasps of NY Public Library Social Media
  • It was wild to see, but New Yorkers seem to love picking the guy who promises to be the biggest asshole to homeless people.

  • Sounds like a fun time to me!
  • I got excited like this when Ecto Coolers were temporarily re-released.

  • The tenor of your comment was largely dismissive and negative, though. Regardless, apologies for the misunderstanding.

  • My condo building has three stations where people can get a doggie bag to pick up their dog shit.

    Two are outside the gate and can be used by anybody.

    I benefit from people picking up their dog shit even if they don't live here, so it's worth it that my HOA dues go to keep those stations filled.

    Same difference. Even if you don't use the library you benefit from people in your city having access to the services that libraries provide. You also benefit by NYPD having $53,000,000 less to spend on weapons.

  • Wales could become world’s first country to criminalise politicians who lie
  • It's sad how astonished I am to read about this. It's weird enough that there are some countries that require the news to present factual information, but to require truth from politicians seems way too right to ever become a real thing.

  • Google disrupted YouTube video playback on Firefox, again - gHacks Tech News
  • Here we go with the circle jerk of trolls.

    No, it isn't.

  • An All Male Advisory Council on Biblical Womanhood
  • Of course it's real.

    Christianity is a religion of dudes.

  • Why White Feelings Trump Historical Context?
  • Yep, it's stupid, and nearly all of them have no awareness of the fact that the Confederate Flag was only truly adopted as a cultural symbol as a backlash against the Civil Rights Movement.

    But it doesn't matter.

    The last two generations of southerners have taught their kids that that awful flag is, in fact, a symbol of Southern heritage, so the bell can't be unrung. For many, it is now a fact.

  • What do you think of this prediction?
  • Also, the big tech bastards haven't managed to kill off emulation, so that's encouraging.

  • The Current State of Affairs
  • That's true in the literal sense, but the word 'minority' has a very different connotation in this country.

  • The Current State of Affairs
  • The president is elected by the wealthy. The minority has nothing to do with it.

  • Eat the rich.
  • Mhmm. Gross.

  • Eat the rich.
  • Diogenes was, by all accounts, a gross-ass motherfucker.

    ...but I like his revolutionary spirit.

  • The Current State of Affairs
  • The word is inconsequential.

    We are an oligarchy masquerading as a democracy. You get two choices, both selected for you by the ultra wealthy and both beholden to them over all else.

    Further, the presidency has never in this country been decided democratically, and that was by design. The poor and minorities were never intended to have any meaningful electoral power, and they don't.

  • The Current State of Affairs
  • LOL

    America is most certainly not a democracy in any sense of the word.

  • Record-setting $1 billion gift will allow Einstein Medical School to go tuition-free - NY Daily News

    www.nydailynews.com Record-setting $1 billion gift will allow Einstein Medical School to go tuition-free

    The gift from board chair Ruth Gottesman to Albert Einstein Medical College in the Bronx removes a major financial hurdle to becoming a physician in a historically underserved borough.

    Record-setting $1 billion gift will allow Einstein Medical School to go tuition-free

    Just another example of something that could be universal if we taxed the rich appropriately.

    Michigan’s $55M experiment with guaranteed income begins with Flint moms

    www.bridgemi.com Michigan’s $55M experiment with guaranteed income begins with Flint moms | Bridge Michigan

    Michigan will experiment with guaranteed income in Flint, one of its poorest cities, giving expectant and new moms $7,500 — no strings attached — to lift the stress of poverty from their newborns.

    FLINT—Eight days after entering the world, Khi’Meir Taylor made another debut — this time in what could be a national spotlight.

    Wednesday was the first day of a $55 million experiment to test whether cash payments can protect children from the toxic stress of poverty.

    Several of our KC-area roller derby skaters won a national title at USARS Nationals this weekend.

    I just thought it would be cool to put this out there. The Satellites featured several local skaters from Fountain City Roller Derby: Tiff (a former Team USA skater), Mel Malice, Aneeda Hurtcha, Annie Maul, and Queen of Hurts. As if that wasn't cool enough, Olympic Gold Medalist Erin Jackson was also skating for the Satellites.

    Pretty. Effing. Rad.

    Who are some of history's biggest unnamed badasses?

    www.wearethemighty.com How a single Viking's berserker rage changed world history forever

    1066 was a tough year for Harold Godwinson, also known as Harold II, the last Anglo-Saxon king of England. This had a lot to do with the two approaching forces who were trying to end his reign way earlier than he expected. One of them would be famou…

    Personally, my favorite is the Viking of Stamford Bridge. The thought that one man taking out 40 English soldiers and completely altering history in one epic fight is just awesome, and no one recorded his name.

    They just gave him a kickass title instead.

    Awesome.

    This is the picture I like to show artists when they hate their stuff after a single layer of work, because I hate all of my stuff after a single layer of work, but it's important to remember it's a process.
