The Daily Word in the Senate Filibuster, Gun Control and the Dog Head Fire

The Daily Word

Looks like two senators are finally taking a stand on gun control in a "filibuster-style blockade."

You can watch it live right now!

In Florida, it's easier to get a gun than solar panels, a driver's license, an abortion, an exotic pet...

The Dog Head Fire is burning without containment.

A badass Twitter user is calling out politicians who are "praying for Orlando" but refuse to support gun control laws.

Check out this heroic Rio Rancho teen.

Look back at the history of the gun control debate.

A state worker started a relationship with Nehemiah Griego.

The Daily Word in Psi-Q, Swarm AI and Real-Life Frankenstein

The Daily Word

Some crafty blogger has taken an ancient (1983) computer code from a book called Test Your Psi-Q and converted it to javascript. Now you can test your own Psi-Q (or not, since the post also explains why this method doesn't actually work).

Eat your heart out, George Jetson. Elon Musk's "Hyperloop" had its first propulsion system test last week. The goal of a 700 mile-per-hour transportation system is closer than ever.

Get your pitchforks and torches ready. The first (living) human head transplant is slated to go down next year in China.

For the first time in two decades, Sandia Labs' managing contract is up for bid. Maybe the new boss can do something about that toxic soup they still have brewing.

There are only three northern white rhinos left in the entire world, but scientists are going to use stem cell technology and surrogate parenting to try and save them from the brink of extinction. The only problem: activists say it doesn't fix the issue that endangered them in the first place, and it might encourage laziness in the conservation efforts of the future. I'll give you two guesses as to which side the northern white rhino is taking.

A tech company has developed an AI that correctly predicted the winner of the Kentucky Derby by using "swarm AI."

The Daily Word in New Rhinos, Men's Undies and Nixon's Jim Crow Laws

The Daily Word

Have you heard of the “New Jim Crow”?

Colorblind=racist

This lady is a real shitty date.

What’s worse than untested rape kits put in storage for years? Destroying them.

I envision a large white man foaming at the mouth, spitting every time he speaks. His eyes are bloodshot and a vein in his neck is popping out as he yells that women are Satan’s catalyst; that’s what I see when I imagine an anti-abortion conference, but what is it really like?

Whenever I hear people say things like these bullshit responses, my eyes roll into the back of my head as I scream with the fury of every teen girl (which is infinite).

Because Trans people are inherently sexual deviants according to the Governor of North Carolina, now men have to use women’s restrooms and vice versa.

Yay for new rhinos!

Aerie is creating a new market for body positivity for everyone.
