Cape town SA to run dry in April

Cape Town will likely run out of water by April


Everyone remembers the pentagons report on climate change, where all climate models told of tens of millions of people looking for water. Here we are.

AMTRAK crashes. Why not automated?

Human error, always. We have driverless cars, why not trains? Switching systems? Seems we could avoid a lot of problems by automating trains.

Justin Timberlake halftime: Best anything ever...

Incrediblishus. Love how he avoided, and actually used the crowd segregation issue that plagued prior shows. He used the entire stadium. Prince tribute, perfect. Boy, can he dance! I wasnt sure what was the opener, with the screens, saying "fake" and "real" ill have to find out. The freaking sets and lights were unreal. The laser screen. Stuff ive never seen.

Awesome. Awesome game too

Jerry Brown should have done a mic drop

Fantastic SOS speech today. He thanked, then eviscerated Trump. " There's one person that doesn't believe in climate change and he's the President of the United States". He hit em all. But the end? Seriously, mic drop opportunity.

Send healing thoughts, (((vibes))) to Willie Nelson.


Lets hope it's a minor thing. One thing I wanted to do this year was sing Whiskey River with Willie again. That band is my family too.

At thing that aren't PC? I was watching Get Smart earlier and I was laughing. Laughing at the same joke(s) that I laughed at 40 years ago. "Not the Craw, the craw"... I still laugh at the show. Hymie the robot.

But thats just the example of the day. We see daily, misogynistic comments and actions by many fucked up men. Sam Malone. Al Bundy. I watch and now cringe, even the newer shows.

Dear fucking lunatic. An open letter to Donald Trump

Like most of you, I read Donald Trump’s recent New York Times interview with mouth immutably agape. Then I read this part:

“Yeah, China. … China’s been. … I like very much President Xi. He treated me better than anybody’s ever been treated in the history of China. You know that.”

And fuck me sideways with John Holmes’ fossilized dick, that was quite enough. I'd long since surpassed my recommended yearly allowance of crazy, and as if prodded by some divine imprimatur, this open letter to our “president” poured like incandescent dung from a Chernobyl reindeer’s asshole:

Dear Fucking Lunatic,
