Link round-up for 8 March 2020

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

o o o o o

Faces, faces everywhere!

There are some wise guys in offices.

That's too drunk.


This is not the future of fashion.

Look, but don't touch.

The romance/porn genre has finally gone completely bonkers.

Don't you hate seeing a brawl on the subway?

Waterbeads are apparently a weapon of mass destruction.

Here's a true tiny house -- a rather spooky one.

Meet Matt Gaetz, the latest loony Florida Republican.

People used to love maps of Hell (found via Mendip).

Mad Mike Hughes failed to prove that the Earth is flat.

John Oliver is in fine form on the coronavirus outbreak.  Here's the full version of that Vietnamese song.

Some nice sunrise photos here.

Wingnuts don't get to define "socialist".

This is "sea glass" (I suspect a lot of it is bits of man-made glass objects, heavily worn down).

She isn't nostalgic, but still.....

Christians are protected from the "Satanic" coronavirus -- if they pay their tithes.

Lo Imprescindible and Michael in Norfolk assess the impact of Buttigieg's campaign.  We'll probably be seeing more of him in the years to come.

Bertrand Russell got it right about religion.

Sage is of Satan, apparently.

Jim Bakker's latest scam has run into a snag.

Sometimes compromise is impossible -- and the wrong side is being asked to compromise.

No, Romney is not a good guy (found via Hackwhackers).

This is the wrong kind of "innovative and dynamic" company.

We need to be honest about the biggest threat to freedom in the US.

This asshole was lucky he only got kicked out.

Some Catholic hierarchs encourage believers to bathe in filthy water because of medieval superstition.  But others are more realistic.

Science wins one in Maine.

With religious fanatics, even friendship is phony.

Why are so many Christians fascinated by Hell?

Trump has no clue about vaccine development, or viruses, or much of anything.  His stupidity paved the way for the coronavirus, almost as if he were on the virus's side.

High-school students do not have a legal right to privacy from the opposite sex in restrooms, lockers, and showers, according to this judge.

Yes, protect American troops, but first protect Trump's narrative (found via Hackwhackers).

Most Democrats don't want a revolution, they just want Trump out.

If only this man who was a fundamentalist for half a century would just read the Bible -- oh, wait.

Our country's lack of policy on paid sick time makes us especially vulnerable to the coronavirus.  How many people serving you are working sick?

A hard-line Catholic site tries to make excuses for medieval anti-Semitism.  Yes, really.  In 2020.

No, the coronavirus is not an escaped bio-weapon.

Don't invest in fossil fuels.

Trump will stop at nothing to silence experts on the coronavirus (found via Fair and Unbalanced).  We need to understand how it spreads.

Small farmers are turning to a new cash crop -- solar panels.

This once, the tables were turned on the bullies.

Italy is shutting down schools due to the coronavirus.

Yes, this is looking like a pandemic.

AO3 has truly arrived -- the Chinese regime is censoring it.

Common humanity trumps religious bigotry in Kenya.

Democratic turnout surged massively on Super Tuesday -- but not among younger voters.

Texas polling-place closures caused long lines in minority areas, though extra voting machines helped a little.  But many were determined to vote regardless.

Vixen Strangely looks at the vanishing chance for a woman president this time around.

The enemy is determined to fight -- we must be also.

"Vote blue no matter who" applies to everyone (found via MBRU at Crooks and Liars).

Colbert looks at Warren's withdrawal.  One Warren supporter embraces Biden.

Russian trolls are already targeting progressives.

Take the money and do the right thing anyway.

Here's why Biden is winning.  If that's too long to read, here it is in one cartoon (found via Hackwhackers).

This primary season, thuggery backfired.

Texas suburbia is gradually turning the state blue.

[1,144 days down, 318 to go until the inauguration of a real President.]

Thanks for including me. I sure hope you are right about us being able to celebrate having a real president in the not-too-distant future!

I was not expecting to see my blog link on your links post a couple of times when I started clicking links, so thank you for adding me to the list. As far as that book, yes it was over the top but it was funny and free so I read it. lol

It's funny what we will see faces in when you think about it. faces on the back of bugs is kinda creepy though.

Adding a message when someone has posted a message on a door or coffee maker is funny. Especially when it's sarcastic.

After reading the drunk and the hair brush...I'm glad don't drink.

Sea Glass is beautiful. I've never been to a beach that had any though. It's also been 30 years since I've been to a beach.

I think this Coronavirus thing is going to get a lot worst before it gets better. Oh and here's one for you. One of my 'friends' on FB told me yesterday and the Coronavirus is actually because of the 5G internet sucking the oxygen out of the air and causing radiation in people who's bodies then mutated the virus and are now spreading it through the 5G network. Not even kidding. I had no idea that people actually believed something like this but I Googled it and it's one conspiracy theory going around right now.

"Most Democrats don't want a revolution, they just want Trump out."
Let's just hope everyone stays committed to doing that and this movement doesn't fizzle out in November.

I hope Texas goes blue. I lived there from 1994 to 2012 and in that time, Republicans did everything they could to screw the Democrats like redistricting with the craziest map ever. The latest voter suppression stuff from Harris County makes me sick. It is about time the minorities band together, rise up and take control.

Jack: Thanks for the post!

Debra: I'm surprised they hadn't blocked it a long time ago. Fascists tend to be puritanical prigs.

Mary: The book does sound pretty funny. Maybe I'll give it a try at some point.

Certainly the coronavirus is going to get worse. Especially in the US, where our dingbat "president" has largely dismantled our defenses and is still trying to downplay the problem.

Mike: At least it's an achievable goal. Revolutions are a lot harder.

Lady M: They're still doing it. They'll use every trick in the book to delay the inevitable. But it's still inevitable.

You think that's mad Frankie Vaughn? Apparently there is now Coronavirus porn featuring actors in masks and hazmat suits. Apparently

Awesome, as always.
Just dropped by to say that Matt Gaetz (who's suck a TOOL) apparently was in contact with someone who had the virus. In CPAC. If there's no poetic justice....

Hi Infidel,

I hope you are well (not just being polite, I really hope so).

I love the office notes. They probably make work a lot more tolerable.

I'm not a cat person, but I'm on their side not that killer fish.

I hate-watched a Netflix show called Next in Fashion. Whenver there was an item of clothing that was actually wearable, that contestant was eliminated. Every contestant was obnoxious, and the hosts and judges were worse. Honestly, I have no idea why I watched it. I guess I don't get fashion.

Love the Columbia Pictures torch lady. Too bad she's not the District of Columbia Pictures torch lady, because there are some people there who could use some slapping around.

Why would anyone put waterbeads (never knew they were a thing) in a bathtub? Personal ball pit for small people?

Mittsie wants to investigate Hunter Biden and Burisma? Maybe he should look into Matt Romney, too.

Going to make a snack and read the rest (I didn't watch the speech tonight, so I still have an appetite). Thanks for the link over to The Raisin. Appreciated as always.

Nonnie: Thanks! Suffered another %^$#@!# inflammation for a few weeks but I'm over it now.

Humor is essential in offices. If you couldn't laugh at that stuff you'd go mad.

Cats are at least relatable. I know exactly how this cat (scroll down a bit) must have felt.

I don't know what it is about fashion. It's getting just insanely ridiculous lately.

It's the torch lady's little flip-toss of the torch at the end that makes that.

As for the water-bead guy, I guess some people exist for the purpose of providing an example to others of things to not do.....
