Rejoice, glory is ours. Our young men have not died in vain. Their graves need no flowers. The tapes have recorded their names.
I am all there is.
Negative! Primative! Limited! I let you live.
But I gave you life.
What else could you do?
To do what was right.

That's got to be quite the experience, being unexpectedly pulled below the surface of the water and getting chewed apart like that before having a chance to react. Ouch.

Fun fact, alligators don't chew their prey, they rip pieces off by grasping with their powerful jaws and turning with their entire bodies, effectively twisting a limb or large chunk of flesh loose from their victim with pure torque.

Scientists call this powerful finishing move the TORQUEMURDER.

What else is new? They did the exact same thing to 30 Coptic Christians in April.

JESUS GOD DAMN IT NO.

...in summary, a pair of radical gun rights groups wants to stage a protest in the manner of....

...a mock mass shooting on the UT Austin campus. With fake blood. Very loud, simulated gunshots. Cardboard guns.

NOT seeking permission from the University, because it's a BAD FUCKING IDEA AND THEY'D NEVER GET PERMISSION.

Please. Just. Stop. You people aren't helping. It's bad enough that those of us who own guns have to put up with a minority group that uses them for criminal activities, but now we also have to put up with another minority group that makes the rest of us look like complete fucking psychopaths. Do you so-called 'gun rights groups' actually WANT a universal firearms ban? Because if you do, you're on the right track. Just keep freaking people out like this and it will happen.

I've become convinced that Trump is actually four sentient pelicans in a suit. The hair is real though.

I consider the DARPAnet a separate thing entirely/just the reason the internet became possible.
Because the internet itself is a very ingenious creation that the people who made the DARPAnet had 0 idea would be a thing that could even happen.

You may choose to think that way, but it's not really accurate. In particular (which was the point) the Internet was around before the web became public, which is why it's wrong to give Berners-Lee credit for stuff that he was not responsible for. I myself was using email, ftp and other less remembered protocols before any browsers were publicly available.

Active shooter on Arkansas State University campus

I'm safe at home, but the campus is frighteningly close to me. Here's what the news isn't saying:

He rammed a barrier with his truck, and got out with a shotgun. Eyewitnesses claim he said "This is personal. I don't want any innocents getting hurt." or something to that effect. He has propane tanks strapped to his body, and is surrounded. School is on lockdown.
