Link round-up for 20 May 2018

Various interesting stuff I ran across on the net over the last week.

A young man achieves basketball self-pwnage.

Watch a cat get frustrated (found via Miss Cellania).

Blogger Mike has a round-up of bad pants.  He also posts joke collections.

Here's some word-play similar in spirit to my "improving words" posts.

I can hardly wait to see the actual clothes.

The Aztec gods live again!

Duct tape can glow.

See the art of melon engineering.

Prehistoric phallic symbol?

Being in the Alt-Right can get confusing.

In China, the Avengers film characters have different names.

Magnetism is weird.

Here's a sculpture in Tokyo.

A few years back I posted about the awfulness of modern men's clothing.  Now this lady blogger has a similar complaint.  Oh, and I'm with Ms. Stewart here.

Check out this Japanese rice art.

She asked for suggestions for a name for her band.  She got them.

Netflix has some worthwhile SF.

If I tried this, I suspect I'd accidentally behead myself.

See rare photos from the last century.

What question would you ask, and of whom?

This is the longest distance you can travel in a straight line on dry land.

To my vast annoyance as a student of history, fundies are now comparing Trump to Cyrus the Great (I wrote about Cyrus here).

MDMA cheese parties are now a thing.

Forced-birth fetishists lament that they're losing young people's support.

On race, Missouri seems to be stuck in the 1950s.

To understand the Bible, read more than just the popular bits.

The regulations libertarians decry were implemented because of cases like this.

Bolton and Pompeo may clash over foreign policy, because the latter thinks further ahead.

Jesus loves you.

Here's a good tip on dealing with an introvert.

Michele Bachmann is no longer crazy enough for Rick Wiles.  But Tony Perkins is crazy enough for Trump.

This person is vile.

Fundie idiots link the Gaza violence with Biblical prophecy (found via Hackwhackers).

We can't solve the country's largest medical problem by shouting down people who talk about it.

The Trump EPA has suppressed a report on water contamination.

More gorillas and chimpanzees exist than we thought (found via Mike the Mad Biologist), but they're still endangered.

Saunas are good for you.

Container farms save water (must be expensive, though).

Europe takes a tough stand against Trump on the Iran deal and trade wars.

Japanese bus drivers show how to go on strike.

Deutsche Welle looks at Iran's military power.

Behold the brilliance of "the Trump doctrine" at work on North Korea.

After decades of sex-selective abortion in misogynistic cultures, India and China now suffer from a disastrous male-female imbalance.

Trump's pick to head the CDC is a true Christian and a bigoted quack.

Electoral-Vote.com looks at Tuesday's primary results.  Hackwhackers has more.  (Basically, Democrats went for electability while Republicans doubled down on Trumpism.)  It was a good day for women candidatesAppeasing Trumpanzees won't work -- just keep telling the truth.

This may be the ultimate Republican.

Calvin's has a Trump image round-up.  Shower Cap has the latest insanities.

"Big Shekels"?  Holy shit, can't they see what this looks like?

The Senate's net neutrality restoration won't get past the House or Trump, but Democrats have positioned themselves on the right side for November.

Happy anniversary -- cake and indictments all round!

The resistance is a marathon, not a sprint -- don't get worn down.

Leadership and courage can arise where some least expect them.

Keep an eye on Pence.  He's more dangerous than you think.

These are the useful lessons of Trump's election.

It's not just Russia -- there are hints of collusion with other foreign entities, notably in the Middle East.  Booman Tribune looks at factors affecting the chances of impeachment.  Even when Trump is out of office, he can still make trouble.

Kudos on posting another great list of links for us to visit. Thank you for sharing this. I HAD to visit the one about introverts since I know a couple. It was really insightful. Now, I know how to better take/understand them.

Wishing you a great week!

Thanks for the great buffet again, Infidel! You had me right off the bat with the basketball self-pwnage (actually something I might have done back in the day)! Thanks, too, for the links and support, as always.
