I thought I was scheduled to work today, but turns out I wasn’t. Might as well take some pictures while I’m out #photo3652015 #mahiwaga3652015 17/365 (at 4th Street Bridge) -

Why no 'Je suis Charlie' moment for Boko Haram's victims? - PRI
Texas House installing panic buttons after ‘hostile’ encounters with open carry advocates - Raw Story
Who could've foreseen? - Victor Ganata
Dudes carrying guns openly can be scary? You don't say? - Victor Ganata
The irony is so thick you could pour it on pancakes - WarLord
But since everyone can carry guns, wouldn't the good guys with guns be able to stop the bad guys with guns? Who needs panic buttons when you've got good guys with guns? - Arlan K.
Presumably, they felt the need for it when the open carry folks turned up. So, next time they turn up, they hit the panic button, security descends on the office in question with SWAT team blazing, and... hilarity ensues? - bentley
{looks up that quote some people like about how government should be scared of the people} - Andrew C (✔)
Texas Lawmakers are wimps! "... The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants. ..." - WarLord
Open Carry was always "sold" as speaking truth to power. Open carry made the little man the equals of rich the powerful and protected the gunman's rights. Except no occupy protester, no Walmart striker, or $15 dollar an hour protester dare open carry into negotiations with a rich Walton heir or a lawmaker or any person of power. You can open carry in any Walmart just not around anyone "important" - WarLord
or if you are black in the WalMart... or anywhere else - maʀtha
9 Reasons You Really Need to Go to Sleep - MoJo
"Sleep deprivation screws with your metabolism. In a study of glucose regulation, scientists found that restricting the sleep of young men to four hours per night for six nights in a row profoundly impaired their ability to metabolize carbohydrates." - Victor Ganata
"Lack of sleep hurts your ability to fight disease…. 'If I give you just four hours of sleep for one night, your immune system function is impaired by about 70 percent,' says Walker. 'So there's a catastrophic implosion of your immune system health.'" - Victor Ganata
aka: don't have babies. All those things come true with little bundles of joy/snot. - Steve C Team Marina
"Not getting enough sleep likely increases your risk of cancer. Sleep disruptions are so toxic that even partial sleep deprivation can decrease the numbers of cancer-killing cells circulating in your body." - Victor Ganata
With White Supremacy on Display in Paris, a Celebration of Western Hypocrisy - Common Dreams - 2015 Jan 14
"The millions who turned out on Sunday claimed to be marching in solidarity with the victims at Charlie Hebdo and against terrorism. They were joined by political leaders from across Europe, Israel and other parts of the world – on the same weekend reports were emerging that 2,000 Nigerians may have lost their lives at the hands of Boko Haram, another Muslim extremist group." - Victor Ganata
"Surely there would be expressions of solidarity with the survivors in Nigeria at a gathering ostensibly to oppose terrorism and uphold the sanctity of life. But the expressions of solidarity never came. In fact, based on the attention the massacre received from the Western press, it was if the massacre had never happened." - Victor Ganata
"What it means for many of us in the Black community is that Je Suis Charlie has become a sound bite to justify the erasure of non-Europeans, and for ignoring the sentiments, values and views of the racialized 'other.' In short, Je Suis Charlie has become an arrogant rallying cry for white supremacy that was echoed at the white power march on Sunday in Paris and in the popularity of the new issue of Charlie Hebdo." - Victor Ganata
Are All Terrorists Muslims? It’s Not Even Close - The Daily Beast
"Let’s start with Europe. Want to guess what percent of the terrorist attacks there were committed by Muslims over the past five years? Wrong. That is, unless you said less than 2 percent." - Victor Ganata
"Even after one of the worst terror attacks ever in Europe in 2011, when Anders Breivik slaughtered 77 people in Norway to further his anti-Muslim, anti-immigrant, and pro-'Christian Europe' agenda as he stated in his manifesto, how much press did we see in the United States?" - Victor Ganata
"…even the suggestion that Breivik was a 'Christian terrorist' was met with outrage by many…." - Victor Ganata
"Back in the United States, the percentage of terror attacks committed by Muslims is almost as miniscule as in Europe. An FBI study looking at terrorism committed on U.S. soil between 1980 and 2005 found that 94 percent of the terror attacks were committed by non-Muslims." - Victor Ganata
"And as a 2014 study by University of North Carolina found, since the 9/11 attacks, Muslim-linked terrorism has claimed the lives of 37 Americans. In that same time period, more than 190,000 Americans were murdered." - Victor Ganata
"In fact in 2013, it was actually more likely Americans would be killed by a toddler than a terrorist. In that year, three Americans were killed in the Boston Marathon bombing. How many people did toddlers kill in 2013? Five, all by accidentally shooting a gun." - Victor Ganata
"But the media will have on expert after expert discussing how can we stop these scary brown Muslims from killing any more Americans despite the fact you actually have a better chance of being killed by a refrigerator falling on you." - Victor Ganata
"Now, I’m not saying to ignore the dangers posed by Islamic radicals. I’m just saying look out for those refrigerators." - Victor Ganata
I love you, man - MoTO: #TeamMarina from Android
You can't bring facts to the table! It doesn't fit with our groupthink!! - Mo Kargas
Wait, shouldn't we be concerned about who's radicalizing innocent fridges? - Andrew C (✔)
It's SkyNet. The airdropped/time dropped refrigerators are part of the vanguard of the rise of the machines. - Victor Ganata from iPhone

Bitcoin Volatility Puts Miners Under Pressure - Slashdot
Bitcoin miners under pressure as value collapses - The Stack - Victor Ganata
"The virtual currency Bitcoin lost 21 per cent of its value yesterday, equating to a total loss this year of 44 per cent." - Victor Ganata
"According to Coindesk, Bitcoin’s value fell to $179.37 (£117.94), 85 per cent lower than its record peak of $1,165 at the end of 2013. In total, nearly $11.3bn has been lost in Bitcoin’s value since its 2013 high." - Victor Ganata

I am still not convinced infinite scroll is a great idea.
I kind of hate it - Eric - ill subliminal
I'm fairly convinced it is not. - bentley
I hate it so much. - Jed
who said that? - Pete
It can easily ruin my entire day. Easily. - Hookuh Tinypants
I dislike it and turn it off whenever I can. - John (bird whisperer)
Just go to the footer to determine how to turn off infinite scroll.... Duh. - Joe
Not a fan at all. - Corinne L
Scroll to the bottom to click the contact/copyright/sitemap/anything else you desperately want to click, but can only momentarily see, and are not quick enough to click. - Michael W. May
Why? Pages are artificial, take screen real-estate, hurt performance, and don't fit a world where data is update constantly. - Todd Hoff
Hate it. 1) because you can't get to the footer 2) because so much data on one page 3) because you can't provide a meaningful permalink to discrete data. Todd, a page can be designed to pull updated data without having to be infinite scroll. - Laura Norvig
There's really no sense to a bookmark to a page when the underlying data set is always changing. And footer stuff is better in some sort of about page than wasting valuable screen real-estate, especially in a mobile world. Agreed on the last part, a page and infinite scroll do roughly the same thing on the backend, but the infinite scroll does make more sense when events are dynamically updating something like a twitter stream. Did I convince you? :-) - Todd Hoff
Maybe it's specific to iOS, but the worst part is when the page size gets so huge it starts triggering refreshes in all the other tabs I have open. - Victor Ganata
Page-search doesn't work on a page that isn't all there. - bentley
Can't stand it. - Greg GuitarBuster
sparklemotion - Big Joe Silence
I don't mind it where appropriate and when the designers have remembered that yes, this means they have to put the footer content elsewhere. I *don't* like it when you're on a news site and scroll down to the bottom of the article and suddenly you're on another article. - Deborah Fitchett
The greatest trick the oligarchy ever pulled is convincing us that the greatest threat to free speech comes from fringe lunatics who kill in the name of their god and not the oligarchy itself.
World leaders marching for a free press is deeply ironic, at the very least. - John (bird whisperer)

Sometimes I wonder what it must be like to be so privileged that I could just completely ignore the consequences of imperialism and colonialism and still believe that I'm a well-informed person with a good sense of history and politics.
