Anthony Jeselnik on Thoughts and Prayers and Making College Kids Laugh :: Comedy :: Features :: Paste
In many ways, Anthony Jeselnik’s third stand-up special Thoughts and Prayers is what we’ve come to expect from this comic: over-the-top one liners about sexual deviancy, baby killing, and other equally wonderfully NSFW subject matter, all delivered with the winning smile and his devilish charm.
But for the last quarter of this hour-long Netflix release, the 36-year-old former Jimmy Fallon writer and superstar of Comedy Central’s Roast of Donald Trump lets down the veil just a smidge. He talks in depth about the trouble he got into for a joke he tweeted in the wake of Boston Marathon bombing and for a segment on his former TV show, The Jeselnik Offensive, poking fun at a New Zealand man who was killed by a shark. The whole segment of the special would be almost poignant if he didn’t use it too to vent about the world’s oversensitivity and to mock a certain island nation.

ANTHONY JESELNIK: THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS (2015) - Full Transcript - Scraps from the loft
Thank you. Thank you. Thank you, San Francisco. Thank you so much. So good to be here. People were surprised when I told ’em I was gonna tape my special in San Francisco. Said, “Why would you do that? That’s the most politically correct city in the world.” Not when I’m on stage, it’s not.
I love this place. One of my favorite cities to perform in. It’s a good place to hang out. Got to walk around a little bit today. Saw a baby. Saw a baby locked inside the back of a hot car. So it’s been a great day. Love that. Don’t get me wrong. I’m not a monster. I tried to help the baby. Tried to throw a rock through the window. Window was down. Ruined that baby’s whole weekend. It was worth it.

Flood Fault Circuit Interrupter Could Save Lives @ Hackaday
What if you didn’t have to risk your life to disconnect the power during a catastrophic storm? That’s a question many people in Houston were asking themselves as they watched water from Hurricane Harvey and other storms surge through the streets, swell in the gutters, and flood their homes.

Among these Houstonians were engineering students [Jon] and [Cyrus Jyan]. They watched as homeowners fought to safely disconnect their homes from the power grid and said, it shouldn’t have to be this way. They designed the Flood Fault Circuit Interrupter to monitor target areas and disconnect the power automatically when a credible threat is detected.

Is Japanese Culture Traumatized By Centuries of Natural Disaster? - Facts So Romantic - Nautilus
The stress of social interaction has caused a flight from human intimacy. You cannot open your mouth to say a word without considering your relationship with the people around you—your place in the hierarchy. And if you say something wrong you risk grievously offending people.

The Surprisingly Solid Mathematical Case of the Tin Foil Hat Gun Prepper
"The zombie apocalypse is obviously pure fiction, but it has an allure to a few tongue-in-cheek preppers because of its functional completeness. If you are prepared for zombies, you are literally prepared for anything."
