Trump (or one of surrogates) said that we need to teach "both sides of science" in school.

Huh?

I'm pretty sure there's only one side. The other point of view is called bull shit.

Dumb comment of the day

If there was any doubt whatsoever. 

A 10-year look at more than 600,000 children comes at a time when anti-vaccine suspicion is on the rise again.


Short. Sweet. To the point. That's the beauty Dave's iPhone.

A message to anti-vaxxers: gent bent

This is real. And serious.

And a message to the stupid folks who say "hey we got antibiotics"... get a clue.

*this*

It goes to show how sophisticated Russian hacking is. And reminds us that we were hacked in 2016 which would seem to indicate the guy in the Oval Office is unelected.

I just finished watching the 6-part series on the assassination of JFK that aired on the History Channel.  https://www.history.com/shows/jfk-declassified-tracking-oswald

I thought it was quite well done.  A fresh perspective on the assassination that followed a number of leads and challenged what we know, and what we think. 

For those of who grew up in and around Miami in the late 60s/early 70s, (minor spoiler alert) the notion of Alpha 66 being engaged in various activities related to Cuba was well known - the connection to Oswald is .... I'd go with unsurprising.  But I suspect there is a lot more to that connection.

I'd encourage everyone to watch the show.

The lame list

Stupidity is something I can not tolerate. Here is my current list of dopey attitudes that chafe me. Don’t be stupid. Don’t be one of these:

  • Anti-science
  • Flat earther
  • Faux patriot
  • Blind supporter of anything, or anyone
  • conspiracy theorist
  • Doubt the Moon landing, or call it a hoax
  • Anti-vaxxer
  • Believe in a deep state
  • Pretending to understand something that is enormously complicated, and just oversimplifying it
