RT @assholeofday: #AssholeOfTheDay John Boehner expects Obama to solve border crisis during Congressional recess rHSMH3vikG
"1. Obama can solve this with unilateral action 2. But we worked on a bill to solve it for a month anyways 3. We can’t agree on how to solve it 4. But we still expect Obama to solve it, even though we can’t agree on a plan 5. We’ll blame him if he doesn’t solve it unilaterally 6. Oh, and we’re still suing Obama for his unilateral action on Obamacare 7. See you in 5 weeks after our vacation!" - Andrew C (✔)

First-Ever Images of Er Wang Dong Cave, A Cave With Its Own Weather System | Weather Underground
"These are the first-ever images taken of Er Wang Dong, one of the world's most recently discovered natural wonders — a cave so large it has its own weather system. A team of 15 expert cavers and photographers had been exploring caves in the Chongquing province of China, reported the Daily Mail. They found the entrance to the hidden Er Wang Dong cave system and were stunned to see a space so large it contains a cloud. In Cloud Ladder Hall, which measures about 12½ acres, or about 12 football fields, fog conceals the roof 820 feet above." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
That's amazing. I've never seen vegetation inside a cave. - Anika

The Mecca in Decline «
"Once, New York was home to more basketball talent than any other city on the planet. No more. As for what changed, theories vary. An older scout says it’s all about attitude. A younger coach says they only lack muscle. Some of the NBA’s remaining New Yorkers blame the city’s emphasis on skills of dwindling value to today’s teams. Others cite greed, poverty, overcrowding, or — why not? — video games, social media, and YouTube. It’s all flailing guesswork aimed at making sense of a decline no one saw coming but everyone watched happen. And though the explanations differ, on the central point, they all agree. New York is no longer the greatest basketball city on earth. Right now, it’s not even close." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
"When we talk about the decline of New York City basketball, we’re not talking about the Knicks’ interminable incompetence or the Nets’ lavish and misguided efforts to build a contender. We’re talking about the city’s footprint in the NBA: Years ago, New York’s playgrounds and high schools served as the most fertile breeding ground for the game’s elite. Today, you’re just as likely to become a star if you’re born in Los Angeles, Toronto, or Raleigh." - Andrew C (✔)
That's the thing, though. There's no reason to be limited to the U.S. even. You can be a star in NBA if you're from Barcelona or Bahia Blanco, Argentina or Bruges, Belgium or Würzburg, Germany. - Victor Ganata from iPhone

Pulled Pork Fried Rice Recipe – i am a food blog
"Someone should open a fried rice version of Chipotle. They’d have giant vats of old, cold rice (an absolute necessity for good fried rice, trust me) and tons of add-ins for people to choose from. The possibilities are truly endless. You’d go through the line and your first choice would be white or brown rice (maybe even quinoa as a healthier choice). Then you’d get to choose your protein (beef, chicken, pork, fish, tofu, eggs), your veggies (peas, beans, carrots, peppers, corn, broccoli) and how you want it seasoned (salt, soy sauce, sriracha). They’d fry it all up to order and it would be so, so good." - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
The best thing about that idea is that you could do fresh rice bowls as well, since any leftover rice you have in the cooker would be perfect for the next day. I would so love this. I mean, that's basically a variant on the Mongolian BBQ style of restaurant, just with pared down choices and configurations. - Jennifer Dittrich

(from May) "It appears McHale is telling his players to just stay with their guys on the final possession, and not to switch their assignments or switch on screens. After the game, McHale told reporters that his specific instruction was not to give up a 3-pointer, a note confirmed by Howard during his trip to the podium. But if he's telling his players not to switch screens on the perimeter to make sure that nobody streaks wide open, how does that jive with the "no threes" plan?" - Andrew C (✔) from Bookmarklet
WTH? AIUI, the foundation of "no threes" is _switch everything_. "Stay with your guy" is going to get you screened. - Andrew C (✔)
