It’s OK, sweet cheeks. You don’t have to get a same sex marriage just because it’s passed into law.

Climategate

Amazingly enough, there are still people out there that believe that the stolen emails (there’s your crime) from the East Anglia CRU showed any kind of wrong-doing on behalf of climatologists. If you are one of these people… just… wow. That and I have a lovely bridge in New York City that I will sell to you for a song.

Plant a Tree; Lower the Crime Rate
Does a greener neighborhood give criminals more places to hide, or do green spaces keep crime down? This was an actual debate that seems to now be resolved.
When it comes to controlling crime, police tend to favor more policing, while social scientists see the symptom of deeper, social problems. Urban planners, on the other hand, focus on the trees.
Here’s the story.

The Results of Drug Tests on Welfare Recipients in Florida:


Drug testing only benefits the testing company. Typical on conservatives to waste time and money trying to stop a fake issue.

You have to love how they pander to the “everyone on welfare is a mooch and a druggie” types in order to get public support for such a wasteful program - that did nothing but line the pockets of the owners of drug testing facilities. 


You know what would be really crazy? If the Governor who signed the law that introduced drug screening, founded one of the largest companies in Florida that provides drug screening. 

Fucking Rick Scott.

Tea Party America, ladies and gentlemen. It’s crony capitalism at it’s finest, and the rubes who vote for these shitbags just clap louder and louder while people like Rick Scott fuck them over.

Frost Flowers Blooming in the Arctic Ocean

Here’s a magical view of “frost flowers” blooming over the surface of the Arctic Ocean. Frost flowers form when newly formed ice “sublimates,” or changes directly from a solid to a gas without going through the liquid stage in subzero air temperature (-22C or -7.6F).
