Sometimes it's so good to be bad, eh?
Did you catch the other story buried in that article?
"...a senior administration official said Trump will also quietly sign a bill to undo an Obama administration rule that blocked the sale of firearms to individuals who receive Social Security benefits due to a mental disability. The measure, which barred anyone on Social Security with a mental disability who needs a third party to manage their finances from purchasing a gun, was crafted in the wake of the 2012 Sandy Hook massacre as part of measures pushed by Obama to tighten background checks."
I'll go cross-post this in the the gun laws thread, as this is political insanity (pun intended)
Just How Much Pee Is In That Pool?
The scientists calculated that one 220,000-gallon, commercial-size swimming pool contained almost 20 gallons of urine. In a residential pool (20-by-40-foot, five-feet deep), that would translate to about two gallons of pee.
....who can be surprised by this?
I really liked Trumps address to Congress last night.
I am very glad for multiple reasons. First and foremost, I hope it was reassuring to you and that it lowered your reasonable angst over the future with such an unconventional President.
Also, I really, really, really like FC and the many friends I have made here and I far prefer to find something for us to agree upon rather than always stumbling over our differences.
Did you notice the left side of the chamber (primarily Democrats) stampeded out of the room before Trump had even left the podium? It is traditional (and polite) to allow the President to leave first followed by Congressional members.
This is not necessarily a shot at the Dems, the Republicans are good at being rude also. But it does highlight to me how low comity has fallen in our Federal government and how fraught the relationships between the two major parties.
I'm afraid (yes, my turn to speculate about events which have not yet occurred) that we will still have a party of No in our Congress. Just a different party this time. sigh
How about we take in all the Syrian refugees that want to come but only if we can ship our professional political class (all of them as far as I'm concerned) to Syria. Or maybe Mosul.
It was reassuring but I need to see some followup to this rather than what he typically tweets and says in order to really lower my angst but last night was a good start.
Here's hoping that he doesn't fall back into his typical MO.
I don't know if this counts as weird, but I found it fascinating nonetheless:
“The President ordered a well-done steak. An aged New York strip. He ate it with catsup as he always does."
Yeah... that didn't take very long. He's a tweeting fool for sure.

Smart condoms: like Fitbit for sex – and you can even share your stats
“Have you ever wondered how many calories you’re burning during intercourse? How many thrusts? Speed of your thrusts? The duration of your sessions?”
Not really weird, unfortunately, but I didn't know where else to put it. If you have Gmail or Yahoo email, you may want to change your password(s)

Hot story: Miami lawyer’s pants erupt in flames during arson trial in court
A Miami defense lawyer’s pants burst into flames Wednesday afternoon as he began his closing arguments in front of a jury — in an arson case.
Stephen Gutierrez, who was arguing that his client’s car spontaneously combusted and was not intentionally set on fire, had been fiddling in his pocket as he was about to address jurors when smoke began billowing out his right pocket, witnesses told the Miami Herald.
They also have a Lambo in the fleet......
I feel safer just knowing its available for our police force.

People reporting extraterrestrial sightings to Trump's new 'criminal alien' hotline
The White House launched a new hotline on Wednesday for people to report crimes committed by “criminal aliens,” but some of the callers instead are using the line to report cases of extraterrestrial contact and UFO sightings.
Saw that too.
It just keeps getting more weird.........
Veteran big game hunter dies after elephant, felled by gunfire, collapses on him
Theunis Botha led his first guided hunting safari through South Africa's grasslands in 1989. A college student at the time, he used the money he received to help put himself through school.
Over the following 28 years, Botha expanded his college side-gig into a full-fledged business, setting up private hunting ranches in Zimbabwe, Botswana, South Africa and elsewhere, and drawing clients from around the world. He won a reputation as a sought-after specialist in leopard and lion hunting, and pioneered a new method of using hounds to track big game, according to his hunting company's website.
On Friday, after countless treks into the African wilderness, the 51-year-old embarked on his final hunt.
Botha was leading a group of hunters western Zimbabwe on Friday afternoon when they stumbled upon a breeding herd of elephants in Hwange National Park, the Telegraph reported.
Startled, three elephant cows charged the group. Botha opened fire, according to News24, but a fourth elephant rammed him from the side, lifting him with her trunk. One of his fellow hunters then fired a shot. The elephant collapsed on top of Botha, killing him, News24 reported.
