Government officials are required to act as stupid as possible because rigidity prevents corruption. This rigidity leads to insane results, such as laying a felony charge on a 16-year-old girl for performing a science experiment. As front-line soldiers in the fight against competence and intelligence, school officials did what they do best: panic, overreact, and expel the girl because school officials must be slaves to their own moronic rules.
If the State knew about the science experiments I did as a 16-year-old in chemistry class… (Hints: one involved thermite; another was a demonstration of the combination of ammonia and hydrochloric acid)
42% of people think Obamacare has already been repealed (were that those 42% were correct!). 38% of pro-lifers support the biggest abortion racket out there. When citizens don’t pay attention, politicians can get away with saying and doing pretty much anything.
It looks like the US is in on another European policy: subsidizing terrorists. But hey, when you’re already subsidizing terrorists abroad, what’s a few more bucks?
Ed FitzGerald would not sign into law any legislation that “misspells” his name (as the more appropriate Fitzgerald). Ed FitzGerald and staff don’t understand the meaning of the word “misspell.” Ed FitzGerald probably would not respond to “Fitzie,” but might to “FitZie” or maybe “FitzIe.”
If somebody breaks into your home, don’t worry; you’ll die before the police get there anyhow. This is, of course, a reason to ban guns…somehow…
Note that this does not apply to left-leaning individuals, who will be allowed to continue shooting at robbers (even through the door, like Slow Joe Biden). It’s only you bitter clinger types who need to have your guns taken away.
In North Korea, the government will determine your haircut. The North Korean government is probably the single entity least likely to get you a good haircut.
Human intelligence may be on the decline.
Time to start up my side business: Brawndo, a drink with electrolytes. It’s what plants crave.
A list of the worst college degrees. Several of these target low-IQ individuals, and some derive psychic value through paternalism. El-ed probably hits both of those descriptions most clearly.
Related to this, Ironman wants student loans to be dischargable debts in bankruptcy proceedings. That’s probably a decent third-best solution, with a first-best solution being to remove government interference in the higher education market. That would cause the student loan market to crater, but would also cause tuition to drop considerably as college-age students (and their parents) would be responsible for footing the bill and thus would choose more wisely. As it is now, a lot of those students are hoping to get a free ride at the expense of people who made better choices.
Hopefully this gets thrown out quickly enough that the lawyers don’t get paid megabucks.
Blizzard does not force you to buy a token. Blizzard allows you to do stupid things with your password and allows you not to use two-factor authentication.
The only thing that would be legit in the suit is that Blizzard was hacked. I don’t necessarily mind court proceedings in that case as a way of protecting customers from organizations which are negligent in their duties.
