Sorry I Murdered Everyone. I'm An Introvert.
"Sorry I murdered everyone at your party, but as an introvert, I prefer one-on-one interactions to group gatherings." "Some famous introverts include Albert Einstein, Audrey Hepburn, Alfred Hitchcock, and all of your friends are dead." "I shouldn’t have killed them, but at the same time, it’s not wrong for me to need space to reflect and recharge before I’m ready to interact with people."

"Many of the pregnant women subjected to this mistreatment are themselves profoundly opposed to abortion. Yet it was precisely the legal arguments for recriminalizing abortion that were used to strip them of their rights to dignity and liberty in the context of labor and delivery. These cases, individually and collectively, highlight what is so often missed when the focus is on attacking or defending abortion, namely that all pregnant women are at risk of losing a wide range of fundamental rights that are at the core of constitutional personhood in the United States."

About | Prolife
Welp. This wins the internet for the day. READ THE WHOLE THING. "1940-November 1, 1940, Pro-Life began at fertilization in Carbon County, Wyoming. 1941- Born, Marvin Thomas Richardson, Carbon County, Wyoming, August 5. ... 1982- Divorced by Jean Benson because Pro-Life was too politically incorrect and that was embarrassing for a peer pressure oriented woman. Married Kirsten Faith Bjarnson in St George LDS Temple in November 1982. Kirsten has moral courage and ignores peer pressure. Pro-Life and Kirsten are very compatible and in love. ... 2004- Changed middle name to Pro-Life, ran for State Legislature. 2006- Ran for Governor as Marvin Pro-Life Richardson, the name Pro-Life was not allowed on the ballot by Idaho Secretary of State so Pro-Life went to court and dropped the names Marvin and Richardson. ...

"Radio has been saved the disruption that has happened to other media. It’s been frozen in time for 50 years," Blumberg said. "Now that everyone is walking around with a radio in their pocket at all times, and now that all cars are going to be connected, the form can flourish again."

LDS Curriculum and the Priestly Hermeneutical Tradition
"In an important way, this curriculum shift is further proof that Mormonism is a priestly, not a scriptural, religion, meaning that authority is found in those wearing the mantle of authority rather than those found in the scriptural text. Instead of the notion of continued revelation destabilizing contemporary authority through the prospect of possible fallibility and future revision—an impulse mostly found in a liberal periphery of the LDS tradition—the concept has actually been interpreted in a way that solidifies the very concept of contemporary authority. Read through this particular hermeneutical vein, Mormonism’s open canon centralizes authority not in the scriptural texts but the bodies of current leaders: it is not so much important what the scriptures say, but what current Church leaders tell us those scriptures mean, and how those fungible texts can serve as springboards or creative evidence for modern arguments. It is the classic problem of originalism magnified through prophetic authority. Ancient prophetic texts act as malleable clay with which modern General Authorities construct their contemporary message."

Pope Francis declares evolution and Big Bang theory are right and God isn't 'a magician with a magic wand' - Europe - World - The Independent
+1 Pope. "Speaking at the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, the Pope made comments which experts said put an end to the “pseudo theories” of creationism and intelligent design that some argue were encouraged by his predecessor, Benedict XVI. … “When we read about Creation in Genesis, we run the risk of imagining God was a magician, with a magic wand able to do everything. But that is not so,” Francis said."

Go North Carolina! One negative ad every minute! "Tar Heels last week endured more than 10,800 U.S. Senate election-focused TV ads that featured at least some content that tarred and feathered either incumbent Democratic Sen. Kay Hagan or Republican challenger Thom Tillis. That’s more than one negative TV ad every minute from Tuesday, Oct. 14 to Monday, Oct. 20."

"Terrorist 2: Your new plan is that we get Ebola, fly to the United States, and lick a bunch of doorknobs? Terrorist 1: Not just licking, duh. Poop and vomit carry Ebola too. So we could, like, cover doorknobs in poop, and then people will grab them while they're still wet, and then put their poop-drenched fingers in their mouths, and then — you know what, never mind. Even I can tell this is dumb."

Email threatens mass shooting if USU doesn't cancel feminist lecturer | The Salt Lake Tribune
Despicable. "An email to Utah State University threatened "the deadliest school shooting in American history" if the school did not cancel a lecture Wednesday morning by a well-known feminist writer and video game critic. "Feminists have ruined my life, and I will have my revenge, for my sake and the sake of all others they’ve wronged," read the message from a sender who claimed to be a USU student."

Drastic Times: This Man Never Makes Political Pos... | ClickHole
"It was something he said he’d never do, which may be why we took him at his word. Facebook is often a destination for spur-of-the-moment, heated debates, usually with a lot of hurt feelings and no clear winner. But despite this—or perhaps because of it—Nurkich has always made a point of keeping his Facebook page a fun, safe space for friends to stay in touch, free of any drama. Which makes what came next all the more dramatic. It’s unknown whether this feeling had been building for a while, or was simply a spontaneous reaction, but the catalyst of discovering an eye-opening article about the effects of global warming today was enough to make Nurkich turn what we knew about his Facebook wall completely upside down."
