This would *really* be suspicious if Mark Judge—who was allegedly *in the room and also drunk* when Kavanaugh allegedly tried to rape Ford, and allegedly got on the bed too—*also* put "Devil's Triangle" (2 guys having sex with 1 girl) in *his* yearbook.... m.dailykos.com/stories/2018/9…
2/ I no longer see any universe in which Brett Kavanaugh isn't asked what "devil's triangle" means—under oath. Republicans will object, but they'll be ignored. I'd add that for many men this would be the moment you'd withdraw your nomination to spare your family further anguish.
3/ Devil's triangle could refer to something else, but if the phrase appears in Judge's yearbook entry you'd imagine calls for him to be questioned will increase. Whether the right likes it or not, these sorts of questions get asked when an attempted rape is being investigated.
Beyond that- there’s been a concerted effort by the State and others to dilute the significance of that building and its relavance to the State and local community while attempting to sell off this site to an international low-budget hotel chain:
Let me elaborate- 2/?
Last Thursday, on the day of, but before the council vote to decide the future of the former Magdalene Laundry Site, I attended the launch of a local folklore project at the back of the Laundry-
While there, I was presented with this “historical” guide to the Monto area.... 3/?
Okay, I’ll begin laying out some information concerning Christine Blasey Ford’s allegations against Judge Kavanaugh.
Dr. Ford may well have been the victim of a severe sexual assault by someone 36 years ago. Her allegations are so vague as to such basic matters as when and where that it is impossible for Judge Kavanaugh to *prove* his innocence.
But there are compelling reasons to believe his categorical denial. Let’s look at one set of reasons.
I was sexually assaulted in the mid-80’s at the home of one of Kavanaugh’s schoolmates. The host of that party added his name to this letter to the Judiciary Committee attesting to Kavanaugh’s character. bit.ly/2MOJ1gH 3/
I’m a mother of six, and a Mormon. I have a good understanding of arguments surrounding abortion, religious and otherwise. I've been listening to men grandstand about women's reproductive rights, and I'm convinced men actually have zero interest in stopping abortion. Here's why…
If you want to stop abortion, you need to prevent unwanted pregnancies. And men are 100% responsible for unwanted pregnancies. No for real, they are. Perhaps you are thinking: IT TAKES TWO! And yes, it does take two for _intentional_ pregnancies.
But ALL unwanted pregnancies are caused by the irresponsible ejaculations of men. Period. Don’t believe me? Let me walk you through it. Let’s start with this: women can only get pregnant about 2 days each month. And that’s for a limited number of years.
Mrs May: Oh yes, the, uh, the Chequers Deal...What's,uh...What's wrong with it?
Mr Tusk: I'll tell you what's wrong with it, my lass. 'E's dead, that's what's wrong with it!
May: No, no, 'e's uh,...he's resting.
Tusk: Look, matey, I know a dead deal when I see one, and I'm looking at one right now.
May: No no he's not dead, he's, he's restin'! Remarkable deal, the Chequers deal, idn'it, ay? Beautiful back stop!
Tusk: The back stop don't enter into it. It's stone dead.
May: Nononono, no, no! 'E's resting!
Tusk: All right then, if he's restin', I'll wake him up! (shouting at the folder) 'Ello, Mister Chequers! I've got a lovely free movement carve out clause for you if you show...
@Joshimuz My take on this:
They did a new method of rendering method that looks really beatiful and solves many problems traditional rendering had for years and could only approach to simulate. This is a big deal, I applaud the various engineers at Nvidia for their breakthrough.
@Joshimuz BUT here we come to the reality of the market and Nvidia itself:
This is a brand new feature or rather a brand new technology, which faces many hurdles such as:
@Joshimuz a) runs slower then tradiotional rendering, this is a trade-off of fps to picture quality. It will take time until it reaches eye-to-eye with traditional rendering.

0. Why should individuals (in general) trust Cochrane reviews? @JuanGrvas tweeted 'I used to have blind faith in the Cochrane Library reviews until they kicked Peter Gotzche out. My response. (Longish thread - apologies). Bottom line - trust the quality of the reviews!
1. So OK I do not read Spanish and so my response is to the English language cartoon. IMHO the issue relating to Peter Gotzche should not undermine faith in Cochrane reviews (with one proviso see #18).
2. The issue relating to Peter Gotzche was not about the quality of Cochrane reviews but according to the Statement of the Board was because of ‘repeated bad behaviour over many years’.
Well, in the "Derek Smart Was Right" dept, comes yet more bad news for Star Citizen backers (most of whom have already given up at this point).
Oh where to start?
OK, lets start with a blatant trolling effort because, well, this stuff is never not funny...
So, you remember some weeks ago when Chris tried to paywall the public live stream of the upcoming CitizenCon event? Sure you do because, well there was quite a furor over it, complete with media trolling. Then they reversed course. All this happened in less than 24 hrs.
It was the single fastest reversal of a Star Citizen dumb move in the entire history of the project. Yes, I keep track of stupid shit like that because that's how my detail oriented brain is wired.
So, as they've been on a blatant cash grab this past year, that snafu cost money.
#Tech in #Farming has been changing the world since the invention of the wheel millenniums ago. Since then, all new innovations either make crops easier to #harvest, more bountiful shorter farming time and more resilient and healthier crops.
I don't know why being unable to put a book down is seen as such an accolade. How about: I had to keep putting it down so I could think about it, savour the words and the thoughts that are their children.
Or: this book is woven into the fabric of my life.
Or: I savour the deferred pleasure of reading this book at the end of each day. I read a few pages every night, until my eyes close and the book slides into my dreams.
About a thousand years ago I was listening to the Clarence Thomas hearings while driving from job to job. This will be by memory from that long ago time, because I don't have the patience to wade through all the transcripts.
2. Sen. Leahy read something Thomas had written and asked him to account for it within the context of his current testimony, and Thomas said words to the effect of, "Senator, you need to consider the context. I wrote that to satisfy my employer, [politician X].
3. Sen. Leahy said, in effect, So you didn't believe what you wrote?
And Thomas said, When you take a job, you say what the boss wants you to say.
REMINDER: Trump's defense against more than a dozen sexual assault allegations in October 2016 was that the women accusing him were too ugly for him. He was elected president the next month anyway. thinkprogress.org/trump-says-sex…
WATCH: Literally minutes before Trump posted a tweet attacking Ford, @KellyannePolls told reporters outside the White House that Trump didn't need to be advised not to attack her because "the president doesn't need anybody to tell him -- he does the right thing."
