Link round-up for 24 March 2019

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

o o o o o

All around me are familiar faces, worn-out places.....

Be your best at even the humblest activities (found via Calvin).

Cats, cats everywhere!

Keep these words distinct.

"You make mistakes when you're hungry."

Behold the mighty hunter.

Every boy wants a Big Dick (found via Calvin).

Real books, e-books, or audiobooks?  Old-school is still popular, apparently.

Millennials inherit the economy (found via Scottie).

This looks like someone hired Giger to design Star Trek (found via Calvin).

Use common sense when reading scare stories.

Calvin comments on some headlines.

You're not gonna believe who keeps a pet frog.

Trees are awesome.  And this one never gave up.

Ghost whales in the sky.....

Religion wants to be tolerated, respected, and accepted (found via Jerry Coyne).

Stop telling us what not to say.

Tumblr management still doesn't understand the platform's thoroughly predictable implosion.

To keep your mind sharp, go nuts.

Internet streaming is at risk of becoming bullshitized.

Ignorant migrants from some shithole country bring disgusting disease.

Know your rights about discussing pay.

Chick-fil-A should still be avoided.

Calvin has another round-up of Trump images.

Jerry Coyne gets e-mails.

This was mankind's first impact on another world.

Purpleanais has a story of a horrifying choice to make.

Was Jesus a manly man?

Don't believe everything you read about "frivolous" lawsuits.

Hannity gets schooled for a dumb remark (found via Scottie).

West Virginia goes after a child-molesting cult.

This is how capitalism actually works.

Here's what's down in the basement under Chernobyl.

Stop the bigotry.

The US formerly led the world in aviation safety, but.....

No, they have not found the identity of Jack the Ripper.

Maryland takes a step toward freeing our life choices from the domination of religious taboo.  Also, a look at modern college life.

Government or social media -- which is the bigger threat to privacy?

This issue will not go away.

Is mandatory vaccination a violation of freedom?

Insecure bullies have found an ideology.

It's not only kids who are in danger from these guys.

Oversized, pretentious houses aren't selling.

Some anti-vaxers sink to Alex-Jones-level assholery.

"Trump has been a fantastic President for the faith community."

"Woke"/SJW dogma bears disturbing parallels to that of Evangelicals (found via Questionable Motives).

Supposedly this is the way to disable spyware which is being downloaded onto Windows 7 and 8 computers.  I'm no computer expert and haven't tried it myself yet, so be cautious.

Moline Skeptics takes on Michael Behe.

Roger Daltrey gets it.

Nikki Haley asked about health care in Finland -- and got answers.

This brutal crackdown on Palestinian demonstrators will be ignored by those who usually use such events to bash Israel.

There can be no excuse for this.

Twitterites react to Trump's latest McCain-bashing.  Shower Cap has his say too, and keeps up with the rest of the crazy.

Watch out for efforts to divide us.

I doubt this guy will ever be President, but I hope he influences the discussion.

This comment by 9thousandfeet highlights an error Democrats must avoid, however unhappy some may feel about it.

The truth about Trump isn't complicated.

If the Democratic leadership won't do anything about Ilhan Omar, maybe her constituents can.

We need a landslide -- how can we get one?

Booman makes the case for electability.

Obama already tried this.

I haven't said anything about the Mueller report because we don't know anything yet -- but even if it's a dud, Trump's legal problems aren't over.

I like the slo-mo cat with the orange ball, LOL! Glad to read that article about nuts improving older adults' cognition -- I eat a lot of them. A good roundup of interesting links today, thanks!

The "familiar faces" link sure demonstrates our ability to "see" what isn't really there. It was my favorite, but the "mistakes when hungry" was also a goodie.

These links indicate how you DO get around. :-)

I'm always a sucker for cat memes! And yeah, the Finnish seem soooo unhappy about their healthcare system (eyes roll to the back of my head :).

Great collection of links!

I always appreciate your weekly pile o' links. I come back two or three times until I've waded through most of them. Have even found a couple blogs that I've added to the ones I read.

Hope you have a good week. :)

Where did you get the photo that's posted at the top? I don't know why, it's very compelling to me.

Ami: About the picture, unfortunately I don't remember. I have a habit of saving any picture I see around the net that looks at all interesting, and right now I have 33,994 pictures saved on my computer and another 10,000 or so on flash drives. Unless I thought to add a tag when I saved it, it's hard to remember where any specific picture came from -- and I didn't with that one.

I've never had a cat but they do look cute. They sure know how to find a place to relax. Tarantulas have pet frogs...that's interesting and a bit scary. We all use social media and so many of us post pictures and let others know what we're doing, where we are, where we're going ect. I have no problem believing that the government monitors or looks for what people post.

Ohh Tumblr is not the same without porn. That’s for sure.
That thing in Chernobyl is the stuff of nightmares. Darn!
And that tree is amazing!

Thanks for your interest, everyone!

Sixpence: I posted about Tumblrgeddon here and here when the ban was imposed. It's not even limited to porn -- a lot of completely non-pornographic gay-oriented content was flagged and removed, for example.
