French soldiers carrying anti-drone weapons during the military parade on the Champs-Elysees. In the French manual they're called, "Fusil de frรฉquence bastille" The English translation would be "Bastille Frequency Gun" ... or just "BFG" for short. ๐Ÿ˜
At the end of the story: "My client (MAGAbro Andrew Anglin) made the decision years ago he was going to expatriate himself and never return." Makes sense.

Hmmm... Isn't the FCC no longer in charge of regulating broadband? Didn't he abdicate that responsibility to the FTC last year?

I know there have been false-starts in the past, but I think it's time for us to accept that our "phones" aren't phones anymore, gaming or otherwise.

One of my favorite scenes of Dr. Who. Vincent Van Gogh, thinking his life has been an abject failure, sees his work being admired a century after his death. It's the dream of all good people to leave something behind that makes the world a better place. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ubTJI_UphPk

Nerds of a certain age, I call upon your infinite geekdom: Between Tranformers, GI Joe, Jem (Jem!?) & of course the MCU, Hollywood has made BILLIONS turning our TV shows & comics into live-action movies. Which of the following do you WANT to see live-action on the big screen?
Presented without commentary: Article II of the Constitution of the United States of America https://www.law.cornell.edu/constitution/articleii
Important: If ICE raids your home, ask for the warrant under the door. If it's JUDICIAL (left pic), you need to open the door. If it's ADMINISTRATIVE (right pic) do NOT grant them access to your property. Calmly ask them to provide a JUDICIAL warrant & end the conversation.
I love astronomy.

I'm not AGAINST nuclear, but: 1. It's not self-propelled, which is all kinds of bad on the water. 2. It uses two 75MW (300 thermal) reactors providing LESS power than the nuclear tugs moving it to the arctic. - Why not just use the tugs? https://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/north/russia-floating-nuclear-plant-1.5206448
