A Christian writer attacked Dolly Parton for being pro-LGBTQ+. It didn't end well for the writer.
  • She bought a 50% share in the park in the mid 80’s because it creates jobs & brings in tourist money to the rural area of Tennessee she grew up in.

  • Happy father's day to all the great dads of star trek
  • Rom inspired his son to enter into a very successful career, just probably not in the way he would have liked. Then Nog inspired Rom to change career tracks and become a station engineer, so I guess it all worked out.

  • "Then and Now" TotK version
  • I was today years old when I learned that BotW Hyrule was in the southern hemisphere. (But TotK is in the Northern? You’re right, WTF?)

  • Romania denies visas for entire Russian delegation to the OSCE Parliamentary Assembly in Bucharest over "aggression against Ukraine"
  • Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe. I had to look it up, figured I’d save everyone else the Google.

  • The Dutchman who gets Nike and Lego into wartime Russia’s stores
  • Who cares if you’re potentially extending a war if there’s wartime profiteering to be had?

  • Boimler is totally sus
  • We’re not spacing you because we think you’re the Impostor, we’re spacing you because you’re using a premium skin.

  • Grand Theft Acquisition: Terok Nor Stories
  • Behind the scenes, it simplified Ferengi makeup if you could just hang a curtain over the back of the actor’s head instead of having to apply a prosthetic.

  • True dedication
  • Ah, yes, the all charisma character build.

  • And now it's stuck in my head again
  • How can he call himself a Damon, he doesn’t have the lobes for business.

  • YouTube looks to be testing server-side ad injection to counter ad blockers
  • I don’t get why so many people begrudge YouTube for trying make money. They serve up 5TB of video data every second. Somebody’s got to pay for all of that. They know ads suck, that’s why they sell no ad subscriptions.

  • After 10 years in early access, 7 Days To Die finally has a release date for version 1.0
  • The big thing to differentiate 7D2D is every seventh night you’ll be besieged by a zombie horde. You spend the week reinforcing your defenses, stockpiling ammo, and upgrading your gear, then you’re tested. If you’re interested in this kind of game loop, it’s worth a in-game week or two. Like many of these games, they’re more fun with friends.

  • I don't remember the last time I've watched the theatrical version at this point.
  • I think I only watched the theatrical cuts twice: once when they came out, and a second time when the Film Society played them second run at the on-campus theater, so… 2004?

  • Lynn Conway, revolutionary trans computer scientist & activist, dies at 86
  • Between her and Sophie Wilson, co-designer of the first ARM CPU, the tech world would be in a very different place right now.

  • Boeing's Starliner has 5 'small' helium leaks as astronauts' ISS mission is extended: NASA
  • Originally they had planned on two more seats in the Crew Dragon behind / below the commander and pilot, but when they switched from a powered land landing to a parachute splashdown, they had to adjust the angles of the seats & the travel in the seat suspension. Those changes required them to drop the second row of seats.

  • Boeing's Starliner has 5 'small' helium leaks as astronauts' ISS mission is extended: NASA
  • Maybe. There are only four Crew Dragons. One’s attached to the station right now, and one’s had its docking equipment removed in preparation for the spacewalk on the Polaris Dawn mission. That leaves two. I’m sure one’s already in prep for the next regularly scheduled crew rotation. A rescue mission would mean either leaving two of the astronauts scheduled to fly that flight on the ground to leave open seats for the Starliner crew, or a special mission using the last Dragon.

  • Our chief weapons are greed, profit and ruthless efficiency
  • Greed, profit, ruthless efficiency, and an almost fantastical devotion to the bottom line. Our four weapons, no, AMONGST our weapons are such elements as greed, profit… I’ll come in again.

  • Trials and Tribble-ations: Alternate Ending
  • We’ll see if they’re still laughing after another round of prune juice.

  • Trials and Tribble-ations: Alternate Ending
  • Which is why Worf prefers to sleep on the Defiant.

  • Any unofficial YouTube clients?
  • I mean, you could just pay YouTube for their services and get Premium.

  • I shouldn't have said that. I should not have said that.
  • Worf’s line comes off a bit funny when you remember he wore a red uniform for the first season of TNG. (Anyone remember what his role was before Tasha died? He hung out at the back of the bridge, but I wasn’t sure what he was supposed to be doing.)

    unofficialnetworks.com Stratton Announces $6.9 Million In Capital Projects For The 2023-24 Season

    Stratton Mountain is investing $6.9 million for the 2023/2024 season, enhancing multiple facets of the guest and employee experience beginning in the base area with RFID lift gates...

    The change I’m most excited to see is RFID ticketing. I keep my pass in a pocket built into the hem of my jacket, it’s always been a pain when I go to Stratton and have to flip it out to be hand scanned.
