Link round-up for 13 August 2017

You never know, the next rock along might be worse.

Very true.

Don't go fishing with him.

This shop has been closed for a while, but it must have sold some intriguing stuff.  Sorry for the corny jokes.

This Tuesday, a large number of people will start mumbling to themselves and fiddling with beads in an effort to make you give up porn.

Someone used Google Translate to convert Chinese subtitles on Rogue One back to English.

Wingnuts freak out over an innocuous magazine cover.

How do dogs really feel?

Don't eat fruit pits.

University of Memphis students do history cosplay.

Fat Nazis want to be sexy.

Those fake pronouns we're being pestered with would be even less workable in other languages.  (German?  Just try this stuff in Arabic!)

The government keeps on functioning by ignoring Trump.

The enemy is in a huge snit about a kids' TV cartoon.

Remember an unusual act of heroism.

Evangelical Christianity ruthlessly attacks any deviation from intolerance (found via Tell Me Why the World Is Weird). They demand strong moral character.

Consumer groups fight Trump to preserve rights of nursing-home residents.

Someone should hand out these to women who work at Fox News.

The SPLC explains why the ADF is a hate group (found via Tell Me Why the World Is Weird).

Modern conservatism is based on fake economics and all-too-real religion.

Fuck the "opioid epidemic", this is the real problem.

The fossil-fuel industry -- and Trump -- are trying to hinder the rise of solar power.

If you get stuck with Windows 10, this might help.

Health is not found at the extremes.

Moon landing denialists are dumb and don't do basic research.

Trump wants to fire NASA's planetary protection officer.

A robot probe finds weird critters a miles below the sea.

Cassini has only a month left, but even its end will bring us new data.

A new survey shows which of Trump's policies is most unpopular in various countries.

The ACA fight was full of partisan theatrics.  The debt ceiling fight will be even scarier.

There's no justification at all for "both parties do it".

How long can wingnut anti-environmentalism last?  Our best hope for swaying Trump is the military.

Never forget what these idiots said.  And don't allow them to sabotage our efforts for 2020.  Ideological purism will poison everything.  Are they really parroting wingnut fantasies?

RedState has a hard-hitting piece on Trump's authoritarian incompetence.  Congress is trying to Trump-proof the government.

A lawsuit on vote suppression in Indiana will test just how right-wing the Supreme Court is.

Jeff Sessions threatens legal-marijuana states.  And Republicans are serious about punishing sanctuary cities.

If Trump is impeached, he'll whip up the Trumpanzees -- but so what?

Am I wrong for wondering what would happen is someone sitting at the thermochormic table and bench farted? I saw the auto mechanic remakes of the Renaissance paintings the other day. Incredible! Good thing the Nazis have fat people lined up just in case they run out of POC, Jews, gays and Muslims to hate. Those pictures of 18-year-old Keshia Thomas protecting a KKKlansman were so powerful. I got chills looking at them. Your countdown can't go fast enough. This weekend has filled me with disgust. The mask has been torn off. I never want to hear about how Twitler's election had anything to do with jobs and economics. It was about hate and intolerance. Like I said over at The Raisin, fuck the protesting bigots and fuck all the Rethugs and assholes that voted third party who made Twitler and the Rethug majority possible.

Nonnie: About the thermochromic table, now you've got me wondering what that would look like. I'm sure it's been done.

I expect that most of the remainder of that countdown will be presided over by Pence after Trump is impeached. I won't be dropping it then, though. He wouldn't have been VP if not for Putin.
