Senator Al Frankens Resignation Is Deeply Unfair

January 15, 2018

… resignation was probably the right and necessary thing under the circumstances. The Twitter response to the piece was hugeabout four or five times the normal response I get. And it was, as near as I can remember, literally unanimously in defense of Franken. This made me start rethinking things. Yes, I still think the Democrats will regret this. But was his resignation really the right and necessary thing? For three weeks, I've been sitting around wondering why no pollster was asking …

Man Rushes To Hospital When Pregnant Girlfriend Goes Into Labor And Discovers She’s Lied About Everything

January 14, 2018

It is one thing to conceive a child, but it is something else entirely to physically give birth. Whether you’re a mother or father, the moment your offspring is delivered into the world, everything changes. But for one father, the happiest moment of his life was to be cruelly destroyed when he arrived at the hospital to find that the quintuplets he’d been expecting with his girlfriend never existed in the first place. Paul Servat believed that his girlfriend of two months, Barbara …

The Grand Tor: How to Go Anonymous Online

January 8, 2018

Fifteen years have passed since a couple of MIT grads and a Navy-funded researcher first built The Onion Router, or Tor, a wild experiment in granting anonymity to anyone online. Today, Tor has millions of users. The original project has been endlessly hacked on, broken, and fixed again. While imperfect, it remains the closest thing to a cloak of anonymity for internet users with a high sensitivity to surveillance, without needing serious technical chops. And it’s stronger and more …

Some of that explosive book on Trump will be proved wrong. Here’s what won’t.

… more than Trump. We know the man gets apoplectic and repetitious about one thing above all else: disloyalty. Fire and Fury will fuel his red-faced rages for months. The fact that he attempted to slap a cease-and-desist on the publishers is disquieting — only authoritarian regimes try to ban books — but it does clue us in to how much damage is being done. But it’s the book’s effect on the rest of Washington that really matters. For the better part of a year,  most GOP …

The fact pattern on him is far more damning than the fact pattern on Al Franken.” Booker added: “Why hasn’t Donald Trump come forward and said, ‘You know what, in this climate, at this point in this country, I’m going …

Opponents of net neutrality regulation argue that the internet has done just fine without aggressive governance, and that the FCC’s rules limit investment (a point that has not proven true).  What is the FCC voting on?

The US Flirts With Geoengineering to Stymie Climate Change

January 4, 2018

The thing about humans is, for all our faults, we’re actually pretty good at fixing things we know we’ve screwed up. Lead in gasoline? Bad idea—let’s ban lead in gasoline. Running out of oil to make gasoline? Let’s switch to electric vehicles. Runaway climate change because humanity has taken too long to ditch fossil fuels? That’s … a bit trickier. Because even if the world meets the emissions goals of the Paris Climate Agreement, it may be too late to …

What I Expect To See From Politicians Come 2018

The one thing you can say positively about Trump is that he uses his ability to let the American people know what’s on his mind as well as anyone in the public eye. While what’s on his mind might be a dumpster fire of lies, attacks, and false reality, it offers a glimmer of how politicians could actually use Twitter for (gasp) positivity.

Trump’s McDonald’s Order Might Actually Be The Worst Thing About Him

December 27, 2017

His obsession with fast food is a combination of germaphobia, careful image crafting, convenience and genuine preference. Of course, he famously avoids exercise because he believes humans are born with a finite amount of energy (sure it’s not those bone spurs, Don?). This is, of course, just one more thing that makes him infuriating. Despite a …
