California passed a law fining people up to $500 for “wasting water”.

Mostly among our enemies who are no longer being afraid of us
“It’s lonely doing work all by myself.” — President Obama to House leadership #OpportunityForAll
“So if someone could grab a hammer and smash a couple hard drives on their way out, I’d really appreciate it.”
Works like this: I feed you Moon Nukers a straight line, and you hit me with a punch line in the comments.
Illegal immigrants protested outside the White House. President Obama…
In Hawaii, US Marines are field-testing a robotic pack mule that can carry up to 400 pounds.

I’m not a huge fan of Michael Bay movies, but I’ve seen some, and I found this video both enlightening and accurate.
WARNING: once you’re shown what makes a Michael Bay movie a Michael Bay movie, you will never be able to UNsee it, and it’ll jump out at you no matter WHAT movie you see it in (even in non-Bay flicks). So be aware that it can make it harder to immerse yourself in cinema.
CAUTION: contains some adult language in the movie clips

Matt Walsh considers the “Check Your Privilege” meme:
And, in the end, what have we accomplished? You assume that by the mere fact of being a Caucasian male I’m as privileged and elite as the wealthy son of an oil tycoon, and I assume that you’re an oblivious, sheltered, brainwashed, insufferable liberal college student. We both negate the other based on the caricature we’ve painted, and then we go on with our lives. This whole exchange proves utterly pointless, but at least we get to stay in our comfort zones where our ideological opponents are narrow and manageable categories, rather than dynamic and uncontainable individuals.
But I guess that is the point, isn’t it? The ‘white male privilege’ shtick wasn’t invented to foster a dialogue, it was invented to suppress it. You tell someone to ‘check their privilege’ because you want to discount everything they just said. It’s a Get Out of Thinking card. It allows you to push wide swaths of people into a nice little box labeled ‘privileged’ and summarily disqualify every thought and idea they bring to the table.
More here, but there’s some rough language ahead.
