This Zero Tolerance policy has gone way too far. . . that's all I'm saying about it.

There are... a lot of tornadoes happening right now, guys. Like, a lot.

I think Texas just hit 47 tornadoes for this year. By comparison, we had 19 last year. At this point in the year, we had, like, 4.

We've already hit 47. In Texas alone. The national average has been over 500 (over 200 confirmed touchdowns).

That's a lot of tornadoes.

To be fair, I am an angry redhead. I don't have her hips though.

Perhaps it's secretly a front to prop him up with confidence and recruit him into Nerv.

It is 2015, after all.

Frigging yes. I wonder if this will sluice into exactly how Russia and Qatar won the rights to host the World Cup. Pretty sure these officials won't feel compelled to take one for the team.

Why on earth would they do that? There must be some back-story.

USA: "Sometimes, we're actually admirable."
Among the people who use the Internet, many are obtuse. Because they are locked in their rooms, they hang on to that vision which is spreading across the world. But this does not go beyond mere ‘data’. Data without analysis [thinking], which makes you think that you know everything. This complacency is nothing but a trap. Moreover, the sense of values that counters this notion is paralyzed by it.

And so we arrive at demagogy. - Hideaki Anno, 1996

This is nothing new. There's a reason why there have always been instructions to store uncooked meats, especially chicken, below other things, and to cook thoroughly and wash carefully.

Stories about crapware installs from Sourceforge have been floating around for a couple of years now. I suspect that the site is losing money because everyone's on GitHub or possibly BitBucket these days, but rather than fold gracefully like Google Code, they're trying to stave off the inevitable by the sleaziest means possible.

I always liked Sonia better than Astley anyway. We should start Sonia rolling instead.

Not this time, Monk. I could see that coming a mile away.

BTW, this is Sonia's best tune by FAR.

Yes, indeed. I actually like Astley's signing.

The contrast between Astley's booming voice and his build is what has always amused me the most about Rickrolling. Song is pretty tasty slice of cheese for sure and that voice is rather impressive.
