    I propose to give you, my valued readers, the entirety of the Russian Hacks that gave Donald Trump an illegitimate victory. The Russians started out by financing Trump's Presidential campaign, realizing that a multi-billioniare would never have the resources to self-fund his own campaign.........Naughty Russians! The Russians decided to convince Hillary Clinton to engage in Pay-For-Play operations prior to her inevitable Presidential win in 2016.........BRILLIANT! The Russians influenced Hillary Clinton to take part in a scheme to sell arms to ISIS through Libya, and even helped her 'get rid of' Ambassador Chris Stevens.........Amazing skill, those Russians. The Russians then convinced...

    How North Korea became a magnet for pot-seeking tourists January 15, 2017 NORTH Korea has been getting some pretty high praise lately from the stoner world. Marijuana news outlets including High Times, Merry Jane and Green Rush — along with British tabloids, which always love a good yarn — are hailing North Korea as a pothead paradise and maybe even the next Amsterdam of pot tourism. They’ve reported North Korean marijuana to be legal, abundant and mind-blowingly cheap, sold openly to Chinese and Russian tourists at a major market on the North’s border for about $3 a pound (or $AU4...

    An Italian court has ruled that a 13-year-old boy be removed from his mother’s custody due to an alleged “personality disorder” linked to having “almost exclusively female role models”. Venice’s Court for Minors said the boy “tries in every way to show that he is different” and described his attitude as “effeminate in a provocative way”, according to local paper Mattino Padova. A social services report said the child from Padua, northern Italy, suffered a “personality disorder” and argued that he has difficulty forming relationships due to dependence on his mother. It also detailed an incident in which the boy...

    The results of your body processing fruit, vegetables, fish and different types of meat leave a distinct signature in the urine. Clues to the state of the body's metabolism and gut health can also be detected by investigating the chemicals in it. The test was developed by a collaboration between Imperial College London, Newcastle University and Aberystwyth University. Dr Isabel Garcia-Perez, one of the researchers at Imperial, said: "This will eventually provide a tool for personalised dietary monitoring to help maintain a healthy lifestyle. "We're not at the stage yet where the test can tell us a person ate 15...

    Perhaps, like me, you use that drawer located underneath your stove for storing pans, cookie sheets, and muffin tins. Unfortunately, we've all been doing it wrong, according to the good people who manufacture stoves. While it does serve as a great spot for all of your back-up cooking tools, it's actually meant to be a warming drawer. You may notice a message printed on the inside of the drawer or in some sort of owner's manual that says something like this: "The warming drawer is designed to keep hot foods at serving temperature.

    Finland's national airline is not superstitious. Finnair flight AY666 took off from Copenhagen and flew to Helsinki on Friday the 13th. What's more, the baggage code for Helsinki airport is HEL. Finnair has been making this flight for many years, but it gets particularly attractive whenever it happens on Friday the 13th. The last flight under similar circumstances was on May 13, 2016. It landed successfully three minutes late without any problems. “It has been quite a joke among the pilots. I'm not a superstitious man. It's only a coincidence for me,” pilot Juha-Pekka Keidasto said previously. “If there's some...

If Disney gets the go-ahead, Carrie Fisher will join Peter Cushing, who, last month, 15 years after his death, played a key role in Rogue One as Grand Moff Tarkin." There was no more detail on what exactly Disney is negotiating with the estate: the studio may want to continue using Fisher's likeness on merchandise, or, as with Cushing, want to bring Leia back for Star Wars: Espiode IX, which is...

    The mice became aggressive predators when two sets of neurons in the amygdala were activated with laser light, a team reported Thursday in the journal Cell. "The animals become very efficient in hunting," says Ivan de Araujo, an associate professor of psychiatry at Yale University and an associate fellow at The John B. Pierce Laboratory in New Haven. "They pursue the prey [a live cricket] faster and they are more capable of capturing and killing it." Activating the neurons even caused the mice to attack inanimate objects, including sticks, bottle caps and an insect-like toy. "The animals intensively bite the...

The bear was just over one thousand six hundred pounds. It stood 12' 6' high at the shoulder, 14' to the top of his head. It is...

    A solicitation on the Department of Defense's Small Business Innovation Research web site is looking for a smart company to develop biodegradable ammunition. The military would like to see projectile cartridges—which are rarely all cleaned up after a live-fire exercise—made out of biodegradable plastic. The military also references a research paper on the use of biodegradable plastics reinforced with bamboo fibers. But the Pentagon isn't stopping there. It also wants spent ammunition and casings to contain bioengineered seeds that would, after several months, grow environmentally friendly plants that would remove soil contaminants. The proposal even specifies that animals "should be...

Charles Schumer (NY) lead the charge today, stating "We all know if President Obama had run against Trump, he'd have cleaned Trump's clock. So let's make him President again." Other top Democrats fanned out to the Sunday talk shows, with the same message: To deny Obama his rightful place as President is racist and mysogynistic.
