This is the bizarre moment cars appeared to levitate in the air as one drove towards a crossroads in central China. The strange clip emerged on LiveLeak and shows the three vehicles being pulled upwards before one rolls onto its side in the city of Xingtai. In the video, which has baffled the internet, a van can be seen approaching a junction when the back end of it is lifted.

I believe Russia is goading Turkey as a way of testing NATO

I've been rather fascinated by what is going on behind the scenes of the various power players in Russia and the US, from Kyev to Crimea to MH-17 to the current skirmish with Turkey. China is less scrutable, and acts as a check.

The sanctions are a non-trivial part of the Turkish economy. The risk of losing 50% of natural gas imports must weigh on Erdogan (and his son, Bilal, who has made hundreds of millions selling ISIS oil) and the thought of having to call upon NATO for assistance...that is the game Putin has been putting into play.

If Russia cuts of energy supplies to Turkey, it could be very likely compared to the US embargo of oil into Japan in the early 1940s, and used to declare war. If Turkey uses this line of reasoning, and if Russia steps up these provocations in an attempt to see the resolve of European members of NATO (don't forget Putin all but promised Tsipras in Greece a bailout, and used him like a pawn in destabilizing the EU) and future NATO members (Ukraine comes to mind) then once one of these "peripheral" members is placed in a war footing scenario, Putin is betting that those fellow Europeans will choose Putin over the USA.

This will not sit well with the Pentagon.

Fighting with a stranger

Have you ever gotten into a fight or confrontation with a stranger?

I did, and it was really awkward.

I was on an airplane, and I was pulling my carry-on bag down from the overhead bin. I'm not sure if my bag brushed this older man as I brought my bag down, but he started angrily yelling at me (in a foreign language), and was being very aggressive.

For some reason, his aggressiveness made me really upset, and I just blurted out, "Fuck you, stupid foreigner asshole! Speak English!" and then I stormed off the plane.

I avoid confrontations like the plague, much less in public view, but this guy just made me lose it. I was embarrassed and mortified, but hell... what can you do?

Gay Atlanta porn star arrested for violent assault

A gay Atlanta adult film performer and bartender was arrested for beating, choking and biting his boyfriend during a late-night brawl, at least the fifth time in two states that he's been arrested after violent altercations.

Jared Louis Velazquez, 30 – who performs in gay sex films as Tyce Jax for Raging Stallion and Next Door Ebony – was arrested on Nov. 9 for allegedly assaulting and choking his boyfriend inside their Lenox Road home. The fight took place about 3:50 p.m., though it was apparently a continuation of an argument that started shortly after midnight, according to an incident report from the Atlanta Police Department.

Tim Tebow still can’t find the end zone as girlfriend Olivia Culpo breaks it off over lack of sex

For once, it's not Tim Tebow who's having trouble scoring - it's his girlfriend.

Confidenti@l is told the QB's model squeeze Olivia Culpo has dumped him after a two-month relationship - because he won't have sex with her.

The former Miss USA, who was first reported to be seeing Tebow in early October, has told friends that she can't deal with the famously abstinent star's nookie-less lifestyle.

"He was really into her," a source close to the model told us, "he was sending her love letters and cute notes and professing his love for her."

Alas, Culpo took a knee.

"She had to break up with him because she just couldn't handle it," said our insider, "He still hits her up, but she just can't deal with the sex thing. He's pretty adamant about it, I guess."

Perhaps Culpo had hoped she could help the free agent - who played for the Jets in 2012 - to have a romantic revelation like she did for ex Nick Jonas, who famously wore a "promise ring," swearing off sex before marriage.

13-Year-Old Teenage Person Ditches Conservatism, Hopefully For Video Games and Sleepovers

You know, the thing about precocious kids is, they’re awful. Kids are better when they’re playing video games, picking their noses, making paper people, collecting baseball cards, etc. Kids who insert themselves into the adult world without appropriate humility and deference are jerks, in the same way an adult who opines passionately in a conversation about something about which they’re generally under-informed is a jerk.

I bring this up because, hey, you remember CJ Pearson, right? Pearson made news as a 13-year-old YouTube activist (read: loudmouth) who famously challenged President Obama’s love of America and then accused the President of the United States of blocking him on Twitter, in what was probably a frame-job.

What a time to be alive.

So. It is for young people to be stupid and loud and obnoxious. One of the things about maturing into adulthood, right up there with shaving and voting and buying a beer in a bar with your own ID, is the wisdom and perspective to know that young people are stupid and loud and obnoxious, but it’s OK, the thing to do is nod and smile and then roll your eyes and mostly ignore them until they, too, can shave and vote and buy a beer in a bar with their own ID. We make room in the world for young people to be stupid and loud and obnoxious without any real consequences, because we are grownups. We do our best to chaperone them through their own stupidity so that they might one day appreciate just how stupid they once were.

Then there’s Ted Cruz. Ted Cruz saw a 13-year-old ranting semi-coherently on YouTube, challenging the patriotism of a person who is the actual President of the United States, and thought “hmmm, yes, here is a person that I should attach to my campaign.” Because politicians, you see, are the most desperate, cynical people on earth, and it turns out they are never worse than when they’re running a largely irrelevant campaign for President among a field of clowns and lunatics. Ted Cruz named CJ Pearson National Chairman of something called “Teens for Ted.” Ugh.

This affiliation has apparently not worked out very well for young CJ, reports CNN.

CJ Pearson told CNN on Friday that concerns about the Republican Party’s viewpoints on racial and gender disparity as well as youth issues convinced him he could no longer be a mouthpiece for conservatism.


The 13-year-old, African-American YouTube star from Georgia said in an interview that he began considering the change after a conversation with another teen friend, who asked why he doesn’t speak out on racial discrimination — to which he replied he was concerned his followers wouldn’t be pleased. A small, cold part of me wants to laugh at the fact that close affiliation with the Cruz campaign was enough to turn this kid away from conservatism altogether. Then I read this:

“I don’t want to be the conservative wonder kid that people follow because I make them feel good and like young people are part of their movement. I want to be followed because I’m the voice of a generation that doesn’t have a voice at the table.” CJ. Stop trying to be the voice of things. You do not need followers. You are a kid. It’s good that you’re smart, it’s good that you’re articulate, it’s good that you’re plugged in and aware of the world around you. You got a bike? Some friends? They got bikes? Go ride bikes. You’ve got the whole rest of your life to be miserable about American politics. No one needs a head start on that.

Schock turns over disputed records to federal prosecutors


Former Rep. Aaron Schock (R-Ill.) has agreed to turn over around 3,000 records sought by federal prosecutors to avoid “a prolonged legal battle,” according to The Chicago-Sun Times.

The government had twice subpoenaed the records, the second time coming after a request by Schock’s lawyers for a judge to review the documents to see whether they were responsive to a subpoena.

“Instead of awaiting the results of that review, the government circumvented this process by issuing a second subpoena to Mr. Schock for the very documents the Court has been reviewing,” Schock’s law firm, McGuire Woods, said in a statement.

“Rather than engage in a prolonged legal battle over the propriety of this new subpoena, Mr. Schock and his counsel agreed to turn over these additional documents to the government,” the statement said. “He has met his obligations and more while maintaining constitutional and legal privileges shared by all citizens.”

Schock resigned from Congress on March 31, following questions surrounding spending irregularities related to his official and campaign accounts.

Federal investigators have subpoenaed all financial, campaign and accounting records from Schock, including banking and financial institution, reimbursement and travel records.

The documents cover both his congressional and personal records, as well as records from his various political committees, staffers and relatives.

Particular attention is being paid to Schock's travel expenses, with investigators demanding “itineraries, calendars, schedules, modes of transportation, costs, and reimbursements.”

Other media reports have raised questions about Schock’s practice of spending tens of thousands of taxpayer and campaign dollars to fly aboard private planes owned by donors.

A grand jury in Springfield, Ill., has been hearing testimony related to Schock’s actions since the spring.

The Idea of Sex Repels Me

I wonder, if we'll end up adding the "A" to the "LGBTQI" one day? This, apparently,

"The closest I have ever come to having sex was when a friend invited me to his house for, as he put it, "a good time".

I was 22 years old, and had never kissed anyone before in my life, except my mother. I weighed up how to explain to him that the idea of having sex with anyone, male or female, repels me, because I am asexual.

It's not that I can't - everything down there works perfectly fine - it's just that I have no desire to do it, and never have had. What's more, flirting, kissing and pornography hold no fascination for me at all.

I grew up in a small town in rural Dorset, England. Everyone else at school was obsessed with going to house parties, getting into relationships and, of course, getting laid. But not me. Each time someone wondered aloud if I had found a girlfriend or boyfriend yet, I would change the subject. As I got older, it started to worry me that I was clearly different from everyone else, but unable to articulate how. If it weren't for the internet, I would probably never have found out. After a lot of Googling, I finally discovered the term that described me: asexual, or "ace" for short. It was like a crucial piece of the jigsaw that was my life had just dropped into place.

I also came across an incredibly useful group, Asexuality Visibility and Education Network, or Aven. Through the Aven web forum, I met Thom and Steve, two asexual men who have an emotional connection and identify as "homo-romantic", but have no sexual desire for each other. They simply enjoy the companionship.

The three of us decided to launch a podcast about life as an asexual person, called Pieces of Ace. Working on the programme enabled me to come out as asexual. It was quite an extreme way of doing so, but recording the first episode was my way of saying to the world: "This is who I am." We have now made more than 15 episodes, and have received texts, emails and letters from people all over the world, who felt the podcast had really reached out to them and helped them to figure out what was going on with their sexual orientation.

The reaction of my close friends was wonderful: they were very supportive and took a genuine interest in what it means to be asexual. A male friend, whom I have known since school, said he found me more normal and easier to understand after I came out to him.

Not everyone got it. Some people asked me if I needed therapy, and others wondered if I was a repressed homosexual. I have even been asked if I was abused as a child and was pretending to be asexual as a coping mechanism. The truth is I am simply wired this way, just as gay and straight people are wired their way.

Coming out to my friends was the easy part. I felt more nervous about telling my family. My brother showed a real interest and was very supportive. My parents were, too, but were concerned that somewhere along the way they had "messed up". My dad worried that I was having some kind of hormone issue. My grandad wondered if I'd been taken in by some kind of sex-hating cult.

The way I explain it to people is this: let's assume you are a straight man. Imagine kissing another man: does that make you feel aroused? Probably not. This is how I feel about sex in general.

An asexual guy was recently featured on First Dates, the Channel 4 series in the UK that introduces single people to each other. He was sent on a date with a woman, whom he agreed to see again. I think this was great for raising the profile of asexuals. There have not been many studies on asexuality and it is an area that would benefit from more research. The most frequently quoted statistic is that around 1 per cent of the British population is asexual, although I suspect the actual number is higher than that.

Hottest Unapologetically G-A-Y porn sites and studios?

This is not the thread for Sean Cody or Corbin Fisher or Randy Blue or Broke Straight Boys or any of the hundreds of gay-for-pay sites. Yes, I know about PornHub and X-Tube and torrents etc. But if you DID decide that you didn't want to spend hours hunting for stuff andyou wanted high quality/HD clips, where would you go for pure, unapologetically GAY porn? Porn with guys who are CLEARLY into it and not dutifully flicking their tongues in and out of each others mouths and asses just as the the director (the only gay person on set that day, probs) told them to. All the while barely hiding their disgust (or, worse, moaning and huffing and puffing so loudly that you know they're complete fakers), but rather guys who have the hunger in their eyes. The guys who kiss with such passion that there's no faking it. The guys who eat ass with such ferocity it's like they've been told this is the last ass they'll ever get. The guys who can open wide and swallow 9" and barely bat an eyelid. The guys who are allowed to get sweaty and muss their hair and be playful and agressive and tender with each other all at once. They're gay and they have zero shame about it. Where are the sites with these guys? They may be fit, they may work out regularly, but they also look like real people, not zero hair fitness models or clearly straight ASU undergrads. No Jesus tattoos. Men not afraid to be a bit scruffy and unkempt. And where are the sites that showcase these guys having hot, passionate sex without silly costumes, awful cheesy music, overly photoshopped/touched-up/glamour-lit sets?

All I can come up with is Treasure Island Media. But I know there must be others. What you got??

Setsuko Hara dies at 95; Garbo of Japan

Setsuko Hara, a Japanese actress who achieved international stardom and critical acclaim after World War II through her collaborations with directors such as Akira Kurosawa and Yasujiro Ozu, only to vanish, Garbo-like, from public life more than half a century ago, died Sept. 5 in Kanagawa Prefecture. She was 95.

She had pneumonia, according to Japanese media. The months-long delay in reporting her death reflected the anonymity that the actress had obsessively cultivated after starring in more than 75 movies, including such esteemed works as Ozu's "Tokyo Story" (1953). Film critic Roger Ebert called that bittersweet drama of generational conflict "one of the greatest films of all time."

Hara was widely admired for her ability to convey the interior life of seemingly ordinary characters who exemplified archetypes of Japanese womanhood. Many of them struggled with tensions between the desire for an independent life and traditional societal boundaries and family demands.

She undertook so many demure or long-suffering roles that she was dubbed "the eternal virgin."

Blending allure and minimalist restraint, she possessed an unshowy intelligence that Ozu said set her apart from many performers of her generation.

"Every Japanese actor can play the role of a soldier and every Japanese actress can play the role of a prostitute to some extent," he once said. "However, it is rare to find an actress who can play the role of a daughter from a good family."

‘Star Trek: Voyager’ Actress Jennifer Lien Arrested for Indecent Exposure

‘Star Trek: Voyager’ Actress Jennifer Lien Arrested for Indecent Exposure

September 15, 2015 | 02:51PM PT

Alex Stedman, News Editor,

“Star Trek: Voyager” actress Jennifer Lien was arrested and has been in custody for two weeks after allegedly exposing herself in front of several children, Roane County police confirm.

Lien has been charged with two misdemeanor counts of indecent exposure in an incident that happened on Aug. 31 in Harriman, Tenn.

A neighbor of Lien’s made a complaint to police after Lien began a tirade due to a crying child, and during her tirade, exposed her breasts and buttocks. The neighbor stated that she had three children in the yard while this was happening.

According to a Roane County Sheriff’s Office report, when police appeared on Sept. 3 with a warrant, Lien was not wearing clothes and resisted arrest.

“The offender stated she wasn’t going any f–king where and we needed to leave her alone,” reads the police report by responding officer Billy Walker.

Lien also threatened to have the officers shot and killed, says the police report. She was transported to the patrol car and taken to the Roane County Jail, and is scheduled to appear in court on Dec. 7.

The actress appeared on “Star Trek: Voyager” from 1995 to 2000 as Kes. Her other credits include “American History X,” “Accidents Don’t Happen,” “Men in Black: The Series,” “Battle Force: Andromeda” and voice work in “Lion King 2: Simba’s Pride.”

This isn’t Lien’s first run-in with the law. In April, she was arrested and charged with evading arrest, resisting arrest, reckless endangerment and aggravated assault.

Rock Hall CEO: 'If Madonna is in, Janet Jackson should be"

CLEVELAND, Ohio – Everyone has an opinion on the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, whether you're a huge lover of Janet Jackson, a defender of hip-hop or a diehard fan of the classic rock bands.

But there's one opinion you may want to pay close attention to. Greg Harris, CEO of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, was named president and CEO of the Rock Hall in 2012. Harris has been with the museum since 2008, which means he's led planning for three of the four induction ceremonies held in Cleveland.

"One could say if Madonna is in, Janet Jackson should be in," Harris says. "She dominated that era and has been such an inspiration to today's stars."

Kerry Rhodes: I Am Not Gay!

According to various reports, four gay NFL players will soon come out of the closet.

But veteran free safety Kerry Rhodes wants to make it clear: he will not be one of them.

Pictures of Rhodes surfaced this week on Media Take Out in which the player's arms are around a man in a tank top, but Rhodes tells TMZ the shots are harmless.

"Photos have been circulating of my former assistant and I that have caused some rumors regarding my sexuality, and I wanted to address the situation," Rhodes says in a statement. "I am not gay."

The free agent adds that the pics were snapped during a "casual" vacation with his "entire business team."

Rhodes does say he agrees with Magic Johnson overall, however: he's all for those athletes who actually are homosexual:

"I know a lot of people are recently talking about athletes struggling to come out to their fans right now, and I support them, as well as wish those individuals comfort."

Neil Patrick Harris among Maxim Russia's list of celebrities 'forgiven' for being gay

The Russian edition of the popular men's magazine Maxim recently published a list titled "Gays We Respect". It contains 10 male celebrities the magazine deems worthy enough to be "forgiven" for their sexual orientation because they have managed to earn "respect".

"We, men, do not consider men who love men to be men. This is the rule," begins the article. "But there are exceptions. There are gays who have earned our respect and the right to remain real men in our eyes."At the top of the list is British actor Ian McKellen. The magazine writes: "We are ready to forgive him of his orientation to the role of the villain Magneto of the trilogy, X-Men and Gandalf from the Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit."

Fellow British actor Stephen Fry follows as "the living embodiment of the idea that one can be openly gay and a sensible person at the same time". His role in Jeeves and Wooster, it seems, has helped earn the Russians' forgiveness as well.

Lead singer of Queen, Freddie Mercury makes the list for his contribution to music and the courage with which he suffered Aids. Calling Tyler Durden, the character from Fight Club, "the role model of all men", the magazine has included Chuck Palahniuk in the list.

It also finds Rob Halford, lead singer of metal band Judas Priest, to be the "coolest" and therefore deserving of mention. Comedian Graham Chapman, mathematician Alan Turing and actor Jean Marais are some of the other names on the list. Maxim feels that the man who gave them the "Bro Code" and told them to "Suit up" — Neil Patrick Harris from How I Met You Mother - deserves a place on the list, even if he did confess to being a "happy gay".

Speaking to BuzzFeed News, the magazine's editor said: "Our position is clearly formulated in the introduction of the article." US Maxim, however, was shocked by the post. "We are deeply disturbed by the article in Maxim Russia and fully condemn it. It is entirely against the views of US Maxim."

Russia continues to be socially conservative when it comes to homosexuality. Most recently, two Russian Duma deputies from the Communist Party, Ivan Nikitchuk and Nikolay Arefyev, proposed an amendment to the Code of Administrative Offences with the aim of banning homosexuality in public.

Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara are lesbian lovers in "Carol," film based on novel The Price of Salt, by Patricia Highsmith

"Cate Blanchett and Rooney Mara were both busy promoting their latest movie Carol in New York City on Monday, ahead of its limited release this weekend, and showing off their different styles in the process.

The two actress play lesbian lovers in the 1950s set film, based on the Patricia Highsmith novel The Price Of Salt, which is already generating plenty of Oscar buzz. ...

During her interview on GMA [Good Morning America], the actress discussed the film’s adaptation from the 1952 novel – which Highsmith published under a pseudonym because of the illegality of same-sex relationships.

‘It was the first piece of so-called lesbian fiction that ended with a possibility,’ Cate explained. ‘Prior to that, the woman had either killed herself, become a nun or been redeemed by the love of a good man. So that was quite revolutionary.

‘But I think what’s wonderful about the film that Todd Haynes directed is that the women’s gender is a really important part of the story, but in a way the universality of the love story – witnessing people falling madly in love for the first time – I think it’s got a broader connection than that.’

Cate and Rooney, who portrays Carol’s younger lover Therese, are already being hailed for their amazing chemistry in the film, but Cate modestly said that it’s ‘not something that you can plan for’.

‘Obviously we did a lot of research about the period and the book and the characters, but that stuff is the magical stuff that you hope the camera’s catching,’ she said. ...."

Boston Globe on TV/movie stars failing onstage

[quote]Look no further than the stage adaptation of Stephen King’s “Misery’’ to see a vivid example of the way a big star, trying to range beyond the arenas where he made his name, can damage a production. Making his Broadway debut as an author held captive by a deranged fan, Bruce Willis (TV’s “Moonlighting,’’ the “Die Hard’’ films) is clearly helping to sell tickets, but he delivers a performance so wooden, tentative, and devoid of urgency that it undercuts the aura of dread and terror that is vital to “Misery,’’ despite the best efforts of costar Laurie Metcalf, a stage veteran. (During previews, there were reports that Willis relied on an earpiece through which lines were fed to him.)

He also says the "Confederacy of Dunces" adaptation is a failure because of the book, not because of Nick Offerman, and goes on to slam George Hamilton, Matthew Broderick and others.

Gay Man Dating A Bisexual Man

I'm counting on DL to point out the differences.

I've avoided getting involved with bisexual men for years - not for any issue with their own sexual orientation but because, based on my experiences, I've always felt they were different from gay men.

But I met a really great guy and we're very attracted to one another. So I thought I'd break my rule and give it a go. We've had a few dates and have a lot of chemistry. I've made it clear that I'm not a bottom, that I'm versatile, that I'm gay and that I'm a grown man. I feel strongly that his sexuality shouldn't define mine in a limiting way. I've been pretty persuasive about the joys of ass play and I haven't been aggressive and have promised to take my time with him, etc. His comfort level is my highest concern. And he has a gorgeous ass.

But he's a bit of a tease, a bit coy. He says things like, "If you're lucky, maybe I'll let you do this...," etc. I suppose a certain amount of negotiation is to be expected but it makes think what I've always thought about this equation - bisexual men just want to control everything.

Any experience here?

Should Men Wear Running Leggings?

At InStyle HQ we pride ourselves on having all of our fingers on the fashion pulse, but there is one trend that has got our opinions a bit divided. Quite simply, should men wear running leggings?

At InStyle HQ we pride ourselves on having all of our fingers on the fashion pulse, but there is one trend that has got our opinions a bit divided. Quite simply, should men wear running leggings?

If I’m honest, I used to think men who wore sports leggings looked a bit ridiculous. Black is slimming, and emphasizing skinny chicken legs is not a good look on a man. Why do you need to wear leggings AND shorts when you could just wear tracksuit bottoms? Playing devil’s advocate, I got a pair of running leggings to try out myself… and I’ve never looked back. Here’s why.

First: I drag myself out of bed at 6am to trek through the cold (11 months of the year) to the gym. If I put on a pair of running leggings (with shorts on top), I can run to the gym, do my workout, and then run home without having to mess around changing into shorts and back again. I’ll always take the temperature controlled, lazy option at that time in the morning. Second: they cover you up! I’d much rather see a guy wearing sports leggings than spanx-like cycling shorts, or those baggy running shorts that cut just below the waist band. Third: us Brits can be quite a pasty lot and leggings help avoid that farmer’s-tan-for-the-legs issue if running around in the sun. Once you get those tan lines, you’ll have them all year.

nd last but not least, most of the men I see wearing running leggings are very fit. They look like professional sportsmen – and I want to look like that too. So as long as men remember the shorts layer, I’m all for them.

How Do You Sell Someone on Psychotherapy?

OK, I guess this is a Thanksgiving drama thread, but I'll keep it brief.

It's pretty obvious that my younger (mid 20's) brother is depressed. He's drifting, lacks any motivation, can't maintain relationships, is generally cut off from the world, and on and on. Oh, and he smokes one Hell of a lot of weed. He's basically sat on his ass playing the guitar and playing on the internet since he graduated from college two years ago.

I really think he needs to see a psychiatrist, but he completely rejects the idea and gets angry and hostile if you even bring it up (something that several people including my parents have apparently done). I tried to sell it as a positive by pushing the whole self-discovery, grow as a human being, "give it a couple visits and see what happens" aspects but they all fell flat.

How do you convince someone that it can be a positive experience? Or do you? Is it like AA and he has to see it for himself? Is there any way to remove the stigma?

Taylor Swift cried over not winning a second Album of the Year for her fourth album

I got nominated for Album of the Year with 'Red', going up to it everyone comes up to you like - "you're gonna win, you're gonna win!", and I wish they wouldn't do that, because cause you don't know if you're gonna win, and someone else very well did.

when they announced the AOTY winner, it was like "and the Album of the Year goes to: RRRRRRRRRRandom Access Memories, Daft Punk", and they really dragged out the "RAAAA", and I was like, for a second there I kinda though "we had it!", and we didn't.

I remember not going to after parties, I went home and I cried a little bit, and I got In-N-Out burger and ate a lot.

You have a few options when you don't win an award, you can decide like "oh! they're wrong, they all voted wrong" or you can get on stage and grab the microphone from whoever did win it, or third, you can say "maybe they're right, maybe i did not make the record of my career, maybe i need to fix the problem" which was that i have not been making sonically cohesive albums. I need to really think about whether i'm listening to a scared record label and what that's doing to the art i'm making.

Dallas Mayor Says He’s More Fearful Of Armed White Men Than Syrian Refugees

Nov. 23, 2015

The mayor of Dallas is pushing back against politicians who say Americans should be skeptical of Syrian refugees, saying he is “more fearful” of armed white men than people fleeing civil war in the Middle East.

Speaking to MSNBC on Saturday morning, Dallas Mayor Mike Rawlings was asked to discuss the growing anxiety over Syrian refugees entering the United States, purportedly over concerns they could be potential agents for militant groups such as ISIS. Rawlings staunchly rejected the assertion that Syrians are somehow uniquely prone to violence, saying he is more concerned with the rise of white supremacy and the recent flurry of mass shootings committed by white men.

“I am more fearful of large gatherings of white men that come into schools, theaters and shoot people up, but we don’t isolate young white men on this issue,” Rawlings said.

He also said that vilifying refugees only helps ISIS, as doing so falls into their “trap.” He then pushed back on the notion that ISIS is somehow representative of Islam.

“ISIS is no more Islamic than Nazi senior staff was Christian,” he said. He also subtly challenged Christian governors and other followers of Christ who have rejected refugees, referencing Jesus’ scriptural call to “welcome the stranger” in Matthew 25:41-43, asking, “Christ following people like myself — how do we deal with this issue of strangers, and are we going to let them in?”

Rawlings’ position is in line with current statistics on domestic terrorism, which show that right-wing terrorists have killed more people than “homegrown jihadists” since September 11, according to the Southern Poverty Law Center. This includes this summer’s tragic church shooting in Charleston, South Carolina, when avowed white supremacist Dylann Roof murdered 9 African American worshippers in cold blood after sitting with them in a group Bible study for an hour. Another Christian white supremacist, Larry McQuilliams, attempted to burn down the Mexican consulate in Austin, Texas last year, firing more than 100 rounds in the downtown area before being shot dead by a police officer while trying to enter a police station. More recently, the FBI successfully thwarted a white supremacist plan to bomb and shoot up black churches and synagogues, and groups of armed, primarily white men continue to protest regularly outside of mosques in places such as Texas: Over the weekend, a group of armed men protested outside a Muslim house of worship in Irving, Texas.

The danger of white supremacy is rarely discussed by politicians who call for increased screening of Syrian refugees, however. Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) is one of 31 governors asking the federal government to halt the settlement in their states, and recently ordered humanitarian and faith-based nonprofits such as Catholic Charities to stop working to resettle the refugees.

Embellishment? Self-inflation? What would you call this?

In the last few weeks, I've met two gay men who misrepresented themselves.

The first was a guy I chatted with several times on Scruff, whose profile says he's "in dental school." I understood this to mean he attends a school of dentistry and is pursuing a DDS or DMD. He later revealed that he's actually in a dental hygienist program. When I pointed out the difference between the two, he argued briefly, saying that dental school applies to both, and then disappeared.

The second was a guy at a Thanksgiving dinner who works for an advertising agency. He never specified his position there, but led the other guests and me to believe he's a copywriter or creative, repeatedly (and rather annoyingly) referring to "the ad game." After dinner, a mutual friend told me the guy is an administrative assistant at the agency—he schedules appointments and answers phones for the people who he would have had us believe he is one of.

There's nothing wrong with being an admin or a dental hygienist, so I don't understand the dishonesty. What do you call this—misrepresentation? Lies? In any case, it's disappointing because I was interested in both of these guys.

MH-17 Report: "Only An Idiot Would Believe It"

When I read that the report on the downing of the Malaysian airliner over Ukraine was being put in the hands of the Dutch, I knew that there would be no investigation and no attention to the facts.

And there wasn’t.

I did not intend to write about the report, because Washington’s propaganda has already succeeded, at least in the Western world, in its purpose of laying the blame on Russia. However, the misrepresentation of the Dutch report by Western media, such as NPR, is so outrageous as to make the media the story and not the report.

For example, I just heard NPR’s Moscow correspondent, Corey Flintoff, say that the missile that hit the airliner was fired by Ukrainian separatists who lack the technical ability to operate the system. Therefore, the missile had to have been fired by a Russian.

There is nothing in the Dutch report whatsoever that leads to this conclusion. Flintoff either is incompetent or lying or he is expressing his view and not the report’s conclusion.

The only conclusion that the report reaches is one that we already knew: if a Buk missile brought down the airliner, it was a Russian-made missile. The Dutch report does not say who fired it.

Indeed, the report places no blame on Russia, but it does place blame on Ukraine for not closing the airspace over the war area. Attorneys have stated in response to the report that families of those killed and the Malaysian airline itself are likely to file lawsuits against Ukraine for negligence.

Tiny waterbear baffles scientist, survives temperatures, pressure and radiation levels more extreme than can be found on earth

The tardigrade genome has been sequenced, and it has the most foreign DNA of any animal

Scientists have sequenced the entire genome of the tardigrade, AKA the water bear, for the first time. And it turns out that this weird little creature has the most foreign genes of any animal studied so far – or to put it another way, roughly one-sixth of the tardigrade's genome was stolen from other species. We have to admit, we're kinda not surprised.

A little background here for those who aren’t familiar with the strangeness that is the tardigrade – the microscopic water creature grows to just over 1 mm on average, and is the only animal that can survive in the harsh environment of space. It can also withstand temperatures from just above absolute zero to well above the boiling point of water, can cope with ridiculous amounts of pressure and radiation, and can live for more than 10 years without food or water. Basically, it's nearly impossible to kill, and now scientists have shown that its DNA is just as bizarre as it is.

So what's foreign DNA and why does it matter that tardigrades have so much of it? The term refers to genes that have come from another organism via a process known as horizontal gene transfer, as opposed to being passed down through traditional reproduction.

Horizontal gene transfer occurs in humans and other animals occasionally, usually as a result of gene swapping with viruses, but to put it into perspective, most animals have less than 1 percent of their genome made up of foreign DNA. Before this, the rotifer – another microscopic water creature – was believed to have the most foreign genes of any animal, with 8 or 9 percent.

But the new research has shown that approximately 6,000 of the tardigrade’s genes come from foreign species, which equates to around 17.5 percent.

“We had no idea that an animal genome could be composed of so much foreign DNA,” said study co-author Bob Goldstein, from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. “We knew many animals acquire foreign genes, but we had no idea that it happens to this degree.”

Gone With the Wind

I'm surprised that the movie is still shown on television these days.

What with the SJW's and political correctness nowdays, it should have been pulled at least 15 years ago.

Personally, I don't mind it, because I think that it's a compelling movie, and I absolutely adore the Rhett Butler and Scarlett O'Hara characters, but I cannot imagine for one second, that any black person would not find the movie offensive.

Between the horrible use of denigrating terms used towards black people in the film, to the simpleton portrayals of the characters, to the "Uncle Tom" loyalty of the slaves towards their "masters" (omg, I can't believe there is still a movie being shown today that paints slavery in a positive light), GWTW is awful on so many levels.

And yet it was being shown in a marathon loop on AMC, just the other day.

So what say you, Dataloungers? Is it time for Gone With the Wind, to just go away?

Neighborhoods: The Hidden Cities of San Francisco: The Castro

[quote] Out of the heart of San Francisco comes an epic story that is at once poignant and controversial -- a tale of social upheaval, political assassination, and devastating plague -- all happening within a few square blocks, and in just a few short years.

[quote] Airing during Gay and Lesbian Pride Month, The Castro, premiered Friday, June 12, 1998 at 9:00 pm on PBS. The 90-minute documentary tells the dramatic story of how a quiet corner of San Francisco became the cornerstone of a movement-an international symbol of gay liberation.

[quote] Using rare archival film and fresh contemporary footage, the story of the Castro's transformation is told here for the first time on television. Because it is a recent chapter in American social history, the story is told by the people who lived it: young and old, straight and gay. They bring to life a history ranging from the discriminatory world of the 1950s, through the flowering of "gay power," and into the age of AIDS.

Casual homophobia in old(ish) movies

The film was so... serviceable; though I did enjoy the actress who played the car rental clerk (same woman who played the secretary in Ferris Beuler's Day Off).

I know, I know. It was the 80s. But I was wondering if you had any examples of casual (or even unintended) homophobia from older films from, say, the 60s-90s.

Jennifer Lopez In Cultural Appropriation Firestorm

Jennifer Lopez opened the American Music Awards with a killer dance number, and while her moves were on point, it was her wardrobe that made us take pause.

That's because we recognized the costumes' details from Italian label Dsquared2's controversial fall/winter 2015 collection. Nicknamed "Dsquaw," the line came under fire from Native American groups for cultural appropriation, not just because of the name ("squaw" is an derogatory word used to refer to Native American women) but because of the theft of their cultural heritage. DSquared2's designers Dean and Dan Caten are Canadian, which means they should be familiar to such sensitivities.

This is how the original description of their line read:

"The enchantment of Canadian Indian tribes. The confident attitude of the British aristocracy.

In a captivating play on contrasts: an ode to America's native tribes meets the noble spirit of Old Europe. Magic and mysterious tribal influences meld with royal references in a bold, quite eccentric aesthetic, revealing luxurious materials and high-end, artisanal details.

A graphic pattern injects a folkloristic feel into a hooded fur intarsia coat. Gold thread details inspired by livery uniforms surface on pants, jackets and coats. Dresses with delicate drapes recall Victorian undergarments.

Geometric motifs with an indigenous flair give a twist to wool maxi ponchos and blanket skirts.

The dark color palette of regal English livery is juxtaposed with the warm tones of a Canadian earthy autumnal forest.

Dsquared2's iconic Twin Peaks bag reveals an ethnic makeover. Tribal decorations pepper high heels with an edgy touch, while sandals are embellished with dazzling crystals. Maxi sparkling jewels add an extra dose of royalty to the look."

De Blasio says son Dante is active in Yale anti-racism protests

Wading deeper into the fray on college campuses over institutional racism, Mayor Bill de Blasio said he “absolutely” believes Yale University should change the name of Calhoun College, the building on its campus where his son Dante lives, because it is named after a “segregationist leader.”

De Blasio, who is white and whose wife is black, has often spoken of the challenges his children Chiara and Dante face as mixed-race children, most notably saying he had spoken with Dante about the dangers he might face in police encounters.

De Blasio said earlier this month that he believed the wave of protests on college campuses, from the University of Missouri to Yale and beyond, were “a moment of truth” in the nation's struggle with its history of racism.

On Monday, he went into further detail, telling reporters at an unrelated press conference that Dante, a freshman at Yale, has been active in student protests at his school.

“He has certainly been involved on the discussion on the campus,” the mayor said. “He’s active in the black student union, and he’s been to some of the protests,” he said, adding that while he didn’t want to speak for his son, he believes Dante is “very concerned” about the situation at Yale.

De Blasio said both he and his son believe the name of the building where Dante lives should be changed, too, because it is named after John C. Calhoun, the wild-haired 19th-century South Carolinian statesman and senator who served as vice president under both John Quincy Adams and Andrew Jackson and is well-known for his defense of the institution of slavery and of states’ rights.

“And, you know, he certainly notes the fact that the college he’s in, Calhoun College, is named for someone it shouldn’t be named for,” de Blasio said. “That’s quite evident to him, and you can understand as a young man of African descent that it doesn't feel particularly appropriate to live in a place named after the chief segregationist leader of the South in that period of time.”

The mayor’s comments come as administrators at Princeton University agreed to consider removing the name of former president Woodrow Wilson from the university’s School of Public and International Affairs over his racist views.

There's been an open casting call for Dorothy, so it will likely go to an unknown. But who should play the other roles?: Evillene, Addaperle, Glinda, the Scarecrow, the Tin Man, the Cowardly Lion.

NCIS's Michael Weatherly joins the DUI club

No wonder he looks bloated. Why is he being charged with two counts of DUI for one incident?

"NCIS" star Michael Weatherly ended up on the other side of the law when LAPD busted him for DUI.

Law enforcement sources tell us Weatherly was stopped for speeding earlier this month around 1 AM in Hollywood. We're told officers suspected he'd been drinking and after running tests, determined his BAC was well above the legal limit. Weatherly spent nearly 15 hours behind bars.

The L.A. City Attorney charged him with two counts of DUI last week and if convicted, Weatherly faces a max of six months in jail and $1,000 in fines -- though jail time's highly unlikely since it's his first offense.

We've reached out to Weatherly for comment ... so far, no word back.

Tom Welling is back on the market, bitches!

"Tom Welling Super Rich Divorce Settlement"

Tom Welling's divorce is now final, and the settlement is unusual in the spousal support dept.

The "Smallville" star's 10 year marriage to Jamie Welling is officially over, and according to legal docs Tom has to pay spousal support for 5 years, but not a set amount.

The 38-year-old actor has to shell out 20% of his net professional income to Jamie, but there are limits. Anything Tom earns north of $5 mil a year is his and his alone.

So, you ask, is Tom that loaded? Apparently, yes. He's worked consistently -- most recently in "Draft Day" -- and according to docs, he and Jamie own a Florida horse farm, and homes in Florida and Massachusetts. They have a bunch of fancy cars and lots of other stuff.

BTW ... as for the farm, she gets all the horses, including Springstein, Donatello, Zoozee, Cliff and Tomorrow. He gets to keep Tomahawk.

This actor is A-list, but the police might have to prepare a pen and notepad for an interview, because our actor has ties to some of the insurgent terrorist groups in the Middle East. I can’t get a clear scoop on the extent or the actor’s complicity, but it’s very questionable to say the least and although he’ll cite his political beliefs as fair game, I don’t think he’ll be too happy about more scrutiny into his personal life.

There are so many articles / discussions on tipping building staff, it's ridiculous (ranging from $25 to $600). I'm just curious what you think.

Mysterious stories and haunting

I'm fascinated by this subject. I have a book that talks about haunting houses, cemeteries, and strange stories.

This one intrigued me:

"Not long before the opening of the French capital's Great Exposition of 1889, a distraught young Englishwoman rushed into the British embassy in Paris and told a story that has reverberated through fantasy and fiction ever since. She and her mother were on their way home from India and, owing to the shortage of accommodations in the crowded city, had taken two single rooms in a hotel. The mother chose Room 342, decorated with rose-strewn wallpaper and plum-colored velvet curtains. Then the older woman collapsed on the bed.

After examining the prostrate guest and talking excitedly in French with the hotel manager, the house doctor told the young woman that her mother was seriously ill and must have some medicine. But the proper medication could be found only in his office on the other side of town. The daughter would have to take his carriage and carry a note to his wife, who would hand her the drugs.

What should have been a simple errand consumed four hours. The driver kept the horses to an amble and seemed to steer in circles, and the doctor's wife took a long time to produce the medicine.

Finally, the frustrated daughter arrived back at the hotel, only to discover that all queries about her mother were met with blank stares. "I know nothing of your mother," said the manager. "You arrived here alone." The doctor was similarly confused by the woman's questions. Frantic now, the young traveler examined the hotel register. Instead of her mother's familiar signature, she saw a stranger's beside Room 342. Insisting on looking at the room itself, she found no velvet curtain, no flowered wallpaper, no familiar baggage — only the luggage of strangers. At this point, she fled to the embassy, where she was received with sympathy — and general disbelief. Trapped in a nightmare, the young woman ended her days in a British mental hospital."

It seems this is only a legend, still is fascinating

Expert: Obama ignored report on surge of rightwing extremism

As lead author of a suppressed 2009 Department of Homeland Security (DHS) report on the rising threat of rightwing extremism, Daryl Johnson was not the least bit surprised by last week’s terrorist attack on the historic Emanuel African Methodist Episcopal Church.

On the evening of 17 June, white supremacist Dylann Roof entered the Charleston, South Carolina, church and shot dead nine African Americans after they had welcomed him into their Bible study.

“Here we go again. That was my first thought. It reminded me of the Sikh temple shooting,” Johnson told The Electronic Intifada, referring to the August 2012 attack by a neo-Nazi in Wisconsin that killed six people.

Johnson, who spent 15 of his 24-year career in government studying rightwing extremism, made headlines in 2011 when he accused DHS of gutting his unit due to a conservative uproar against the 2009 report.

Since then, Johnson says the US government has continued to ignore the growing danger posed by homegrown rightwing extremism while focusing obsessively on Islamic “jihadists.”

DHS has a total of three people analyzing non-Islamic domestic extremism, down from eight prior to the release of Johnson’s report in 2009.

In stark contrast, up to 100 analysts are employed by DHS to evaluate homegrown Islamic extremism, Johnson said. DHS did not return The Electronic Intifada’s request for comment.

This lopsided balance is reflected across federal agencies, according to Johnson, who keeps in touch with sources within DHS who tell him nothing has changed since he left.

“If you look at the government as a whole, there are thousands of counterterrorism analysts looking at al-Qaida and its affiliates versus dozens on domestic non-Islamic extremism,” Johnson said, noting that a vast majority of rightwing extremism analysts operate under the auspices of the FBI.

Johnson added that most federal law enforcement agencies, including the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco and Firearms, the US Marshal Service and the presidential protection agency the Secret Service, have no full-time analysts monitoring rightwing extremism.

Mystery Science Theater 3000 is returning

Next year, TV viewers will be able to relive all manner of classic ’90s shows, with new episodes of The X-Files, Twin Peaks, Gilmore Girls, and Full House on the horizon. Add one more returning series to that list, as Joel Hodgson is announcing Tuesday that his beloved cult creation Mystery Science Theater 3000 is coming back after 15 years of dormancy.

For those unaware, the premise of Mystery Science Theater 3000 is brilliantly simple: A mad scientist has launched a man into space, and he torments said subject with psychological experiments that involve him watching some of the worst movies ever made. In order to keep it together, the poor marooned host talks back at the screen, aided by a pair of pop culture-obsessed robots. The MST3K crew may not have invented talking back to the screen, but they certainly brought it to the masses.

“We’ve been talking about doing this for five years now, so it’s taken a long long time to get it to happen,” Hodgson told EW last week via phone. His first order of business is to launch a crowdfunding campaign at Bring Back MST3K, a project he hopes will have a multi-pronged effect: Not only will he raise some funds to produce new episodes of the show, but he also hopes it will act as both a promotional tool and as a way to gather together everybody who contributed to the show in the past. “The crowdfunding is kind of this big gathering, and not only is it gathering the audience but it’s also gathering together the people who want to get involved,” says Hodgson.

Those who he hopes to get involved include past cast members and writers, as well as a brand new cast that includes a fresh host as well as a new mad scientist and new voices for famous wise-cracking robots Tom Servo and Crow. “Basically, I’m trying to blend the old with the new,” says Hodgson. “Mystery Science Theater has already refreshed itself once with a completely new cast, so I think it deserves to do that again. The original cast is going to be invited back to write, produce, and do cameos as their mad science characters, and then there’s a new cast with new talent.”

Donald Trump suffers his largest drop in the polls

[quote]Trump drops 12 percentage points in poll: Reuters/Ipsos

Fri Nov 27, 2015

U.S. presidential hopeful Donald Trump's support among Republicans has dropped 12 points in less than a week, marking the real estate mogul's biggest decline since he vaulted to the top of the field in July, according to a Reuters/Ipsos poll.

Trump was the favorite of 31 percent of Republicans in a rolling poll in the five days ended on Nov. 27. That was down from a peak of 43 percent registered on Nov. 22.

The dip follows criticism of Trump for comments he made in the aftermath of the Nov. 13 Paris attacks that killed 130 people and wounded hundreds more.

Following the attacks, Trump told an NBC News reporter that he would support requiring all Muslims within the United States to be registered to a special database, which his critics have likened to the mandatory registration of Jews in Nazi Germany.

Trump has also been criticized for flailing his arms and distorting his speech as he mocked a New York Times reporter, Serge Kovaleski, who is disabled.

Trump mocked the reporter as he defended his unsubstantiated assertion that during the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks on the United States, he watched on television as "thousands and thousands" of people in New Jersey cheered while the World Trade Center fell.

Still, Trump is not the only front-runner to slide in the latest survey.

Retired neurosurgeon Ben Carson has seen his poll numbers drift downward and now trails Trump by more than half, with just 15 percent of Republicans polled saying they would vote for him in the same Nov. 27 poll. As recently as late October, Carson trailed Trump by only six points.

Following Carson, Florida Senator Marco Rubio and Texas Senator Ted Cruz are tied for third place, with more than 8 percent each.

Following Rubio and Cruz was former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, with 7 percent.

What's Thanksgiving without a Lohan behaving badly?

A coast-to-coast flight was diverted to New Orleans to remove actress Lindsay Lohan's stepmother, authorities said Saturday.

Kate Major-Lohan, who is married to Lindsay Lohan's father, was removed from a JetBlue plane on Wednesday, Col. John Fortunato, spokesman for the Jefferson Parish Sheriff's Office, confirmed in an email. Major-Lohan was turned over to the FBI, he said.

JetBlue Airways Corp. spokeswoman Sharon Jones said in an email that Wednesday's Flight 101 from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to Los Angeles was diverted to New Orleans to remove an "unruly customer" who was not identified. She referred further questions to law enforcement.

US Office of Personnel Management Hacked

So I get this letter in the mail yesterday advising that my "...Social Security number and other personal information was included in the intrusion" and that I can get at no cost three years of "...comprehensive identity theft protection and monitoring services...."

I remember when the news was reported back in the early summer, but I had no idea I would be included since I never worked for the Federal government. But, thinking back, I DID do some freelance work for a government contractor five years ago. I vaguely remember having to fill out some forms and getting fingerprinted so I could go onto a government installation (navy base).

I researched the web and apparently this is legit. There really is an Office of Personnel Management and this is issue is discussed on their website.

Other DLers get caught up in this hack?

If so, did you sign up for the free identity theft protection?

Jay Robinson, the mad Emperor Caligula

I have always been fascinated by Jay Robinson, who is best known for playing the insane Caligula in the film "The Robe" and for the reprising the role in the film "Demetrius and the Gladiators".

As one reviewer wrote of 'The Robe':

"Robinson is glorious in showing the rampant insanity of Caligula that in it's heart is childish in nature fitting for a man who has anything he wants handed to him no matter how crazy the request may be. My only problem with Caligula in this film is he's not in the film as much as Nero was in Quo Vadis. Robinson has about four scenes in the film and two of those scenes are a bit short. There's just not enough Caligula to go around because he's unquestionably the best part of the film. Robinson energizes the proceedings whenever he shows up and actually makes the film entertaining with his antics. Almost alone Robinson prevents the film from being completely forgettable as he gives one reason to watch the film. he was typecast in that role and found it difficult to expand into other parts."

Robinson struggled with and overcame drug addiction, ultimately dying in 2013."

Do you remember Jay Robinson?

WATCH: Rachel Maddow Breaks Down Pastor's 'Kill the Gays' Rally Attended by GOP Candidates

Rachel Maddow focused Monday night on a tale of two forums this past weekend: one she hosted in South Carolina featuring the three major contenders for the Democratic party nomination, and an Iowa conference featuring three antigay Republican candidates for president hosted by a right wing pastor who declared “it’s not a gay time!”

“It really was a ‘kill the gays’ call to arms,” said Maddow on her MSNBC program.

She introduced video of Kevin Swanson, a virulently antigay preacher from Colorado, who organized the event in Des Moines. In one clip, Swanson told the National Religious Liberties Conference he believes that churches should have sackcloth and ashes at their entrances for Christian families whose “sons are rebelling, hanging out with homosexuals, and getting married, and their parents are invited.”

“And I would sit in cow manure, and I would spread it all over my body.”

Swanson, who preaches that homosexuality should be punished with death, drew more than 1,700 to his ”religious freedom" conference, including Republicans Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal and Ted Cruz.

Maddow played a series of excerpts of Swanson’s speech, in which he quoted from the bible in calling for the death penalty for gays and lesbians, and then declared that was not as high a priority as giving homosexuals, and all of America, time to repent.

“This was a Republican presidential candidates event,” Maddow told viewers. “These were not the ‘kill the gays’ ravings of the guy hosting this event from some time in his past. This was not something we dug up that he said a long time ago, that maybe these presidential candidates didn’t know about.” Maddow suggested the might be a good topic for the moderators from Fox Business Network who will put questions to Cruz and the other Republicans running for president Tuesday night.

And lest viewers think the Iowa event was nothing but boring politics, Maddow mentioned how pop culture came under fire from Swanson as well:

“There were denunciations of Harry Potter. There was a big, long soliloquy of a movie called How to Train Your Dragon. There was a big, screaming denunciation of how country music radio stations need to repent, repent, repent because they’ve gone over to the gay side.”

Watch Rachel Maddow break down the Swanson event in the clip below.

Marco Rubio: 'Ignore' Gay Marriage Decision Because 'God's Rules Always Win'

In an interview today with David Brody of the Christian Broadcasting Network, Sen. Marco Rubio said that the Supreme Court’s rulings on marriage equality and abortion rights in the Obergefell and Roe decisions, respectively, are “not settled law.”

The Republican presidential candidate said that states should “do everything possible within the constraints that its placed upon us” to curtail abortion rights, before insisting that government officials “ignore” Supreme Court rulings if they believe they conflict with “God’s rules.”

“We are clearly called, in the Bible, to adhere to our civil authorities, but that conflicts with also a requirement to adhere to God’s rules,” he said. “When those two come in conflict, God’s rules always win. In essence, if we are ever ordered by a government authority to personally violate and sin, violate God’s law and sin, if we’re ordered to stop preaching the gospel, if we’re ordered to perform a same-sex marriage as someone presiding over it, we are called to ignore that. We cannot abide by that because government is compelling us to sin.”

Brody, unsurprisingly, took that as an endorsement as Kentucky clerk Kim Davis’ stance that she could flout the Supreme Court and refuse to issue marriage licenses to gay couples.

Homophobic? Sexist? Both? Or Am I Overreacting?

I'm a 35 year old Gay male who does Sales/Accounting for a pharmaceutical company. My work group and another work group are in the midst of a major project that will last until the beginning of January. This project is so massive that it requires around the clock attention, 24/7. Since my company is too cheap to provide us with the proper tools to perform our jobs at home, someone must be in the office at all times to work & monitor the latest numbers. This is usually done in 8 hour shifts and includes nights, weekends and holidays, etc. Those of us low on the seniority pole or who have no life outside of work & could care less (like myself) were handed the most undesirable out of the shifts (overnight, brutally early calls, holidays, etc).

I should add that I've never came out to any of my co-workers. I've never tried to hide anything about myself either. Since I have zero contact with any of my colleagues outside of the workplace, the subject has never come up.

I arrived at the office this Thanksgiving morning to relieve an accountant named "Mike", a middle-aged, disheveled, Duck Dynasty type who has usually taken a few 3rd shifts each week since the project began. Our short exchanges have always been pleasant up until this point. They usually consist of him briefing me on the night's activities for 4 or 5 minutes, and me asking any work related questions I may have for 2 or 3 minutes . Then there's 1 or 2 minutes worth of laughs/small talk before he leaves. Today's laughs/small talk portion went like this:

MIKE: *while the sweet sounds of Fox News Radio drift from his desk PC* Well, if that's everything I'm going to go home, get a quick nap and be up by the time the wife's ready to serve the food this afternoon.

ME: Oh OK. I had no intention on cooking myself anything, because I knew I had to be back here at the office so early. Somehow I still managed to hit the grocery store after work yesterday, cook myself a small meal for the holiday, get a bit of sleep and make it here this morning. *beaming with pride*

MIKE: *flashing a wickedly smug grin under his disgustingly unruly beard* Wow! You Sir are going to make some man a very nice wife one day!

ME: *completely caught off guard, I can't remember if I let out an awkward chuckle or gave a look of disgust but I IMMEDIATELY shot back* No, my ability to cook actually means that I'm an adult and very capable of taking care of myself. With or without a wife!

Mike: You've got a point. *followed by a few more minutes of meaningless babble before he left*

Initially I wasn't upset about this exchange, but as the day's went on I've become livid. After the fact I've thought of SO MANY MORE things I could have said to put that asshole in his place. Would this have pissed any of you off? Or do you think I'm overreacting?

In-depth profile of Jan Hooks' last years

This answers a lot of questions DL has had in various threads...

- She had an apartment in New York and a farmhouse upstate. Eventually she just moved to the farmhouse full-time.

- Her handyman (who became a good friend) said the isolation was intense, but she craved being alone with her pets.

- She was a heavy smoker and drinker for years and had no intention of quitting either (implication is her changed appearance was due to tons of booze).

- She turned down work (not just auditions, but offers) regularly and said she only wanted to work enough to keep her SAG insurance.

- At a tribute to Marc Shaiman at Carnegie Hall, he wanted to reunite the Sweeney Sisters. Nora Dunn was all aboard. Jan stalled him and finally said she just didn't want to do it.

- They discovered a cancerous node in her throat that didn't respond to chemo. She had the choice of a laryngectomy, but chose not to do it. Nor did she quit smoking or drinking until the end. Her death wasn't suicide; the cancer cut off her airway and she collapsed one night coming out of the bathroom.

- Yes, it sounds like she was loved and respected by all who knew her. She just lost all interest in performing or appearing in public.

Donald Trump blasts 'disgraceful' Mizzou protests: 'Trump should have been the chancellor'

November 12, 2015

Real-estate mogul Donald Trump blasted the recent University of Missouri protests, which he called "disgraceful," during a Thursday-morning interview on Fox Business Network.

"I think it's disgusting. I think it's disgusting," the Republican presidential candidate began when asked about the university.

Weeks of protests over racial tensions have rocked the campus, leading University of Missouri president Tim Wolfe to announce his resignation on Monday. Chancellor R. Bowen Loftin also said he would step down at the end of the year.

But Trump argued that it was a "weak" move for the two leaders to step aside.

"I think the two people that resigned are weak, ineffective people," he said. "I think that when they resigned, they set something in motion that's going to be a disaster for the next long period of time. They were weak, ineffective people."

Trump added: "Trump should have been the chancellor of that university. Believe me, there would have been no resignations."

He also slammed the "crazy" demands of the leading student-protest group, Concerned Student 1950, which, according to the Columbia Daily Tribune, are a list of sweeping actions to address racial tensions at the school.

Those included that the university increase its percentage of black faculty and staff on campus to 10%, a handwritten apology, and a mandatory "comprehensive racial awareness and inclusion curriculum" overseen by students and faculty of color.

"By the way, did you look at their demands?" Trump said on Fox Business. "Their demands are like crazy. The things that they are asking for, many of those things are like crazy. So it just disgraceful."

Trump's animosity to the group doesn't come as a surprise. The mogul said in September that the broader Black Lives Matter movement was "looking for trouble."

"I looked at a couple of the people that were interviewed from the group," he said then during a Fox News interview. "I saw them with hate coming down the street last week talking about cops and police, and what should be done to them. And that was not good. And I think it's a disgrace that they're getting away with it."

Aziz Ansari's New Netflix Show Has a HOT co-star

I can't stand Aziz Ansari's stand-up, but I found him pretty charming on Parks & Rec. His new Netflix show looks good. It's funny how dramatically film and tv have changed. A decade ago, Master of None, and other shows that blur that drama/indie comedy line, like Transparent, would have been small indie films seen by a few thousand people and quickly forgotten in a few weeks. Now, they're reaching much bigger audiences via on demand video services like Netflix. Also cool to see Indian actors having success as lead actors - from Aziz to Mindy Kaling to Priyanka Chopra and not having to play cab drivers or terrorists. Oh, and, the actors playing Aziz's parents on the show? His actual parents. Apparently, during his Parks & Rec days, Aziz's dad, a gastroenterologist, would corner Parks & Rec producers during events and ask them if there was anyway they could write him into the show. LOL. Nice to see he finally got his shot! Show premieres on Friday. Seems to be getting raves - currently 91% on Metacritic.

Spending Thanksgiving Alone

I'm an American who moved to Europe a few months ago, and after dodging a few last minute pity invites, it looks like I'll be spending the day alone. I'm not sure how I feel about this. Because of the recent terror attacks in Paris, I had to abandon my original idea of...spendin the holiday in Paris!

I won't be eating a frozen dinner or anything, but I definitely feel horrible. I have a great family and awesome friends back in the States, yet I convinced myself I needed to shake things up in my life. Now I'm in a new country where I'm reminded everyday I'm at the bottom of the food chain.

I'm a little bitter I haven't made any friends yet (an effort made more difficult since I'm gay and in my mid 30's). However, it also surprised me that co-workers who know I'm single and new to the area didn't think to ask me if I have plans until yesterday afternoon. Even though I'm an introvert who values alone time, not having any friends or family around on a major holiday is killing me.

Any tips on surviving the day? One thing is for sure: I'm going to avoid Facebook and Instagram like the plague...

Has "Empire" already jumped the Shark?

The meteoric rise of “Empire” was the TV story of last season — restoring network TV’s reputation as a place where viewers could go for exciting quality entertainment after years of decline.

Debuting in midseason with 13 episodes — and pulling in huge numbers, which grew each week — “Empire” was quickly renewed and given a slot on the fall schedule. Fox also increased the show’s number of episodes this season to 18.

But the rush to Season 2 may have hurt “Empire.” Four episodes in, it has become predictable and stuck in dramatic second gear.

In short, the excitement that made “Empire” can’t-miss TV is gone.

“Empire” is still drawing big numbers (12.2 million for Wednesday night’s episode). And all the elements that distinguished it from your average prime-time soap are still there: the extended musical performances, the loud fashions and the industry-insider feel. But last month’s season premiere included a dramatic about-face so inconsistent with what had already happened that it was easy to see that “Empire” was beginning to get away from itself. We’re talking about the final scene, when Jamal (Jussie Smollett) — the gay underdog son who found a champion for his musical ambitions in another underdog, his mother, ex-con Cookie (Taraji P. Henson) — slammed the door in her face, shutting her out of Empire records. Which was now up and running, thanks to her efforts.

Why would he do that? As a flashback from Season 1 reminded us, Lucious (Terrence Howard) tried to put a 5-year-old Jamal in a garbage can when he wore his mother’s kerchief and heels. Even in the mercurial world of soap opera plot twists, where characters’ personalities change on a dime, having Jamal suddenly side with his father was a boneheaded maneuver.

Even more problematic, Lucious’ arrest for the murder of Bunkie Williams (Antoine McKay), the climax of Season 1, was treated as a three-episode joke in Season 2. Lucious got out of prison on a technicality, and was actually recording music there. Come on, Ilene Chaiken (the show’s executive producer). If your big event from Season 1 is going to have no consequences, what is the point of watching? Cookie goes to jail for 17 years on a drug charge, but Lucious does time for four minutes on a murder charge? Absurd. Modal TriggerChris Rock guest stars as convict Frank Gathers.Photo: Chuck Hodes/FOX

The show’s success has also resulted in some weird stunt casting, like putting comic Chris Rock in the role of hardened criminal Frank Gathers. No way does Rock give off even a whiff of homicidal tendencies. When a series such as “Empire” makes it big, everyone comes crawling out of the woodwork trying to get a guest spot (for bragging rights). So far we’ve seen Marisa Tomei as a billionaire who invests in Empire records and Ludacris as a prison guard. Thematically, the show is about making stars — not bringing on those who’ve seen better days. Having Courtney Love on last season as an aging star worked — but we didn’t need to see Naomi Campbell as Hakeem’s old girlfriend. Stop the madness.

Going forward, “Empire” just has to do better. The episodes play like a broken record. In any given scene, the two younger Lyon brothers, pouty Jamal and Hakeem (Bryshere Y. Gray, who could use a few acting lessons), bicker over status and power. Their divorced parents bicker in a more sophisticated game of one-upmanship. And on the really pathetic front, eldest son Andre (Trai Byers) offers to go to jail for a murder his wife (Kaitlin Doubleday) committed — just so he can get back into the family business. This guy has an MBA. He can’t get another job? That “Empire” seems stalled is a surprise, considering executive producer Danny Strong’s Emmy-winning track record at HBO (“Game Change,” “Recount”). Maybe he can get the show on track again.

The high ratings are still there, but nothing lasts forever.

My boyfriend refused to give me a piggyback ride!

OK, he's not really my boyfriend, but a great guy I went hiking on our seventh date with. When we were returning from the summit I jokingly said something like "I'm really tired, why don't you give me a piggyback ride" (I'm a pocketgay and he's rather tall, by the way, plus he's much older than I am). I thought he would say OK and I would hop on his back for a couple of seconds and then we would laugh about it, but instead he gave me a "Are you fucking kididng me" look and didn't even say anything.

Who was more out of line here - me or him? Yeah yeah, I know my proposition was a bit childish, but if I can suck his cock without complaining in the middle of snow-caped mountains then he could at least give me a piggy back ride.

Viral teen YouTube star renounces conservatism

Viral teen YouTube star renounces conservatism

By Tal Kopan, CNN; Updated 5:10 PM ET, Fri November 27, 2015

Washington (CNN)The 13-year-old Internet phenom who gained national attention criticizing President Barack Obama and briefly was a part of the Ted Cruz campaign is renouncing conservatism, saying he's looking to be a voice unbound by party ideology.

CJ Pearson told CNN on Friday that concerns about the Republican Party's viewpoints on racial and gender disparity as well as youth issues convinced him he could no longer be a mouthpiece for conservatism.

"I was tired of being a champion of a party that turned a blind eye to racial discrimination. Tired of being a champion of any cause that denies equal rights to every American. Tired of being a champion of a party that doesn't care about the issues important to young people," Pearson wrote in an email.

The 13-year-old, African-American YouTube star from Georgia said in an interview that he began considering the change after a conversation with another teen friend, who asked why he doesn't speak out on racial discrimination -- to which he replied he was concerned his followers wouldn't be pleased.

RELATED: Black religious leaders criticize Trump group

"Over the past few days, I thought about essentially how I don't want people to follow me because I'm that anti-Obama kid, or who called out Hillary Clinton or who took Bernie Sanders to task," Pearson said. "I don't want to be the conservative wonder kid that people follow because I make them feel good and like young people are part of their movement. I want to be followed because I'm the voice of a generation that doesn't have a voice at the table."

He said the video of Laquan McDonald being shot 16 times by a police officer in Chicago helped open his eyes to the systemic problems of racial discrimination in America and the need to look at the issues objectively.

Pearson was also the chairman of Teens for Ted and part of the presidential campaign for the Republican Texas senator, but separated with the Cruz campaign at the beginning of the month. Pearson said Cruz wasn't doing enough for issues affecting young people.

The teen also was accused September of faking a screenshot that Obama's account had blocked him on Twitter. Pearson admits he made a mistake and says he has moved on.

Pearson commands a YouTube channel viewed by more than 5 million and a Facebook feed with more than 100,000 followers.

He told CNN he plans to continue to be a social media presence.

"My generation is one of the most politically diverse ever, and I'll continue to be a voice but one that looks at issues objectively," Pearson said. "My views on the issues aren't going to be dictated by one political platform or another."

He also cited one his favorite targets for criticism, quoting Obama: "There is not a liberal America and a conservative America. There is the United States of America."

The Los Feliz Murder Mansion

Seeing what could be a gorgeous Spanish revival style home falling into disrepair is odd in the Los Feliz area, where you are more likely to see a random starlet's multimillion dollar mansion. But with what is known as the Los Feliz Murder Mansion odd isn't the half of it.

This was once home to the Perelson family, which consisted of Dr. and Mrs. Perelson and their three children. On December 6, 1959 life as the family knew it came to a gruesome halt. Dr. Harold Perelson murdered his wife and severely beat their 18 year old daughter. The daughter was able to escape the home and ran for help. Help wasn't needed, however, to stop her father's wrath as he had helped himself to a bottle of acid and killed himself. The two youngest children, who were also in the house at the time, were unharmed.

Being that it was Christmastime, like many families, before that fateful night the Perelson's had been preparing for the holiday. A Christmas tree was put up. Presents were already being wrapped. But for the family there would be no celebration.

After this horrific crime it was reported that the children all moved across the country to be with family. The home was sold the following year to Julian and Emily Enriquez. This is the point where the story gets downright peculiar. After purchasing this house the couple never moved in. They also never leased it out and according to many articles written on the home, never took the Perelson's belongings out. There were reports that for years the Christmas tree was still visible through a window as well as wrapping paper and gifts on a table. After the Enriquez couple passed away the home was left to their son Rudy...who also apparently has left it vacant. ...

Man yelling 'I'm going to kill you' was screaming at spider

YDNEY, Australia -- Police were called to an Australian apartment when neighbors heard what they thought was a man threatening to kill a woman. Turns out, those threats were directed at a spider.

The Harbourside Local Area Command says it dispatched multiple officers to the scene after the man was heard yelling, "I'm going to kill you, you're dead!" Neighbors also reported hearing a woman screaming and the sound of furniture being thrown around.

The police agency later posted the following transcript on its Facebook page describing the conversation between the man and officers that followed:

Police: "Where's your wife?" Man: "Umm I don't have one." Police: "Where's your girlfriend?" Man: "Umm I don't have one." Police: "We had a report of a domestic and a woman screaming, where is she?" Man: "I don't know what you're talking about. I live alone." Police: "Come on mate, people clearly heard you yelling you were going to kill her and furniture getting thrown around the unit... What have you done to her?"

The man then told officers the truth: He was trying to kill a spider.

Man: "It was a spider." Police: "Sorry??" Man: "It was a spider, a really big one!! Police: "What about the woman screaming?" Man: "Yeah sorry that was me. I really, really hate spiders."

The man then explained to officers that he is really scared of spiders, and he had been chasing this one around his apartment with a can of household insecticide. He eventually killed the spider, not realizing the noise he had been making in the process.

After a quick search of the apartment to make sure no one else was there, officers left the scene and filed their report. The man will not face any charges.

Despite Religious Family’s Objections, Israeli Supreme Court Rules Transgender Woman Can Be Cremated

The ultra-Orthodox Jewish family of May Peleg attempted to overrule her last wishes.

Israel’s Supreme Court has ruled that a transgender woman who committed suicide can be cremated, despite the wishes of her ultra-Orthodox family, reports the AP.

May Peleg, who took her life earlier this month, wrote in her will that she wanted to be cremated, a practice that is forbidden by Jewish law.

Her family went to court to block the cremation.

“We can at least assume that the deceased’s mental condition at the time of the writing of the will and the affidavit was not stable,” the family stated in its complaint. Despite being estranged from her, they claimed “there is a strong suspicion” her will was prepared by proxies and did not reflect her true intent.

Instead, the court weighed individual rights over religious tradition and allowed the cremation. Using the female pronouns, Judge Arnon Darel concluded May had the autonomy to decide her final wishes.

Peleg, 31, believed a Jewish burial wouldn’t recognize her gender identity, constituting “a lack of respect and an erasure of my identity,” she explained in a pre-written statement.

The prominent LGBT activist stipulated some of her ashes be buried under a kurrajong tree, known for having both male and female flowers, where her two children could visit her.

California to hold a public ballot on bareback porn ban

California will put an initiative to voters – asking whether the filming of bareback porn should be banned in the state.

A ballot was confirmed to be taking place next year on the initiative, submitted by Michael Weinstein of the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.

If passed, the initiative would make the wearing of condoms mandatory in all pornographic scenes filmed in the state, for both gay and straight scenes.

Similar plans have been strongly opposed by the adult entertainment industry in the past – with some arguing risks are minimal now regular vetting and testing for actors is in place.

No incident of an actor being infected with HIV on a porn set has been reported since 2004.

However, the AIDS Healthcare Foundation continues to claim that the practise of allowing porn actors to have unprotected sex is unsafe, and that porn studios are setting a bad example on condom use.

Weinstein told the LA Times of the new initiative: “It’s another milestone – the qualification of this initiative.

“We’ve taken polls that show, statewide, 71% support. We’re very confident that we will be successful on election day. There is no area of employment where safety is optional.”

The group’s views are often controversial – previously attacking the use of HIV-preventing drug Truvada. Despite endorsements for the drug from the FDA and World Health Organization, AHF President Michael Weinstein labelled it a “party drug”.

LA County, which has traditionally been a haven for porn studios, passed an ordinance in November 2012 banning the filming of bareback sex.

It was subsequently revealed that applications for permits to shoot pornography in Los Angeles had fallen by 90% since the law came into effect.

Despite the huge fall in official shoots, it is likely that the regulation simply forced studios underground, pushing actors out of official screening processes and safety nets.

The California Senate shelved a similar law last year, after strong opposition from the adult entertainment industry.

Even telling those people was a difficult step for him, but he feels good about it and I think he should be proud of himself for that. He is considering going public at some point, but would need to be in the right situation. The other player is gay and more of a newcomer in the league with great potential. He has confided in some friends, including two other hockey players (one of which is the first player). He is the more likely of the two to come out publicly at some point.

Why Did The Castaways Still Treat The Howells Like Royalty?

I mean money was nothing on the island. Why didn't they make Lovvey and Thirston work?

Were they hoping if they ever got off the island, the Howells would give them some of their money?

Celebrities Who Look Completely Different (Read: Worse) Without Makeup

We all know celebrities' look are all smoke and mirrors but which ones stand out as the most heinous examples of how professional styling, makeup and fabulous clothes can alter your appearance? I am talking about those who not only look like average, ordinary humans, but even worse to the point you would never believe they are famous and lusted after if you have seen how they really look like.

This is the thread were we post news about and discuss astronomy. We've had some cool threads lately, and I thought it would be good to have future posts appended to one thread.


Black Holes



Big Bangs; modest bangs; small, shy bangs

And more!

I'll start, the Washington Post has a cool article today on a probe of the planet Ceres. I think they were being too cute and attempting to generate views by referring to this piddling dwarf-planet as a "planet", without qualification. But no matter, we're there, taking pictures and orbiting.

This thread is [italic]not[/italic] for astrology posts, please.

Poland won't extradite Roman Polanski

Poland will not extradite Oscar-winning filmmaker Roman Polanski to the U.S. in an almost 40-year-old case after prosecutors declined to challenge a court ruling against the extradition request.

Prosecutors in Krakow, who had sought the extradition on behalf of the U.S., said Friday they found the court's refusal of extradition to be “right” and said they found no grounds to appeal it.

Polanski's lawyer, Jan Olszewski, told The Associated Press that Polanski's reaction was of “great relief” and of “satisfaction” that the irregularities in the U.S. procedure have been exposed. Polanski spoke to his lawyer over the phone from Paris, where he lives with his family.

The case was heard in Krakow, where Polanski has residence in Poland.

I had a wonderful thanksgiving meal and nothing had to die in the process.

Granted there wasn't a golden brown turkey and my gravy was artificially flavored, but tasty. My dressing was wonderful and the roasted chestnuts that replaced my usual smoked oysters really did an indistinguishable stand in. I really felt good about not having anything dead on my plate. I'm not a vegetarian, but this really gives me something to consider in future.

Pokémon Brings Two Gaymers Together

There’s something about Pokémon and gay men. Take a stroll around Tumblr and hot gay men are cosplaying as sexy Pokémon, or trading jokes about them. Bravo Delta loves Pokémon, and he’s a porn star

They can even base entire proposals around the game, and show a ton of artistry in doing it. So it doesn’t matter if you’re a fire type, and he’s a grass type, love will find a way.

As a gay video game fan, it’s hard for me to find people in my area with similar interests so I’ve always dated guys who don’t game. Since about 2012 (after many failed relationships), I maintained that my soul mate would be the one who can beat me at video games.

Rosie to daughter: "U SUCK. You are not my kid anymore."

[quote]"I don't love you either," Rosie texted her after she learned of the interview, Chelsea told INSIDE EDITION. "We r done," another message read. "U SUCK." "You are not my kid anymore," the messages continued. "Life is better with you gone - sad but true."

Wow. Imagine what Ro would say if someone rejected their child for being gay. Or fat.

No wonder that one boy went off to military school the minute he could.

Which celebrity would you like to make it with?

Just curious, if you could snap your fingers and instantly have a celebrity in your bed, in front of you or behind you, who would it be? Who is your fantasy celebrity guy (can be an athlete too).

Is the attack on Russia by Turkey the new assassination of Franz Ferdinand?

The media is downplaying it, but things are heating up quickly. The plane was in Turkish airspace for less than 3 seconds (at cruising speed it is more likely around 0.7 seconds) but the subsequent murder of the pilots by Turkish fighters in Syria complicated the situation radically.

I doubt that WW3 will come directly from it, but it illustrates how dangerous things are in that area, and how "blowback" can suddenly metastasize into war.

Putin will undoubtedly respond, and the escalating tensions will break at some point. Unless Erdogan apologizes and offers concessions, Putin will be forced to retaliate. He's a typical dictator, and his people will demand retaliation.

Happy Thanksgiving! Let's hope cooler heads prevail...but then again, we are talking about government megalomaniacs like Obama, Putin, Hollande and Erdogan.

Pioneer Woman

She is so smug.

She walks around with this permanent smug smirk, as if she has the perfect life that nobody can touch.

Boy, do I hate her.
