If Gavin Newsom has Bell's Palsy from his booster, then there is a God. Period. It's definitively settled. And YOU better change your ways.

We learned something else about the real constitution of America: that it is the press, not the courts, with the sacred power to inscribe official reality. This election and its aftermath have once again reminded us that there is no serious or major institution in the United States, the Supreme Court certainly included, willing to challenge the mainstream press. There is nothing even slightly new about this. When the New York Times wrote, in an overly-frank tweet it later deleted, that the role of declaring the winner of a presidential election falls to the news media—perhaps much as the role of declaring the winner of an Imperial election once fell to the Praetorian Guard —it said the quiet part out loud.
Shitty airline travel is the absolute pinnacle of humanity to me. We found a way to soar through the high untrespassed sanctity of space and also found a way to make it suck the whole time. Absolutely iconic work by the species.

Why They Let Fentanyl Kill Kids – What will save Corey? When he is charged for multiple violations of laws against public camping and public drug use, says Jacqui, and given the choice of drug treatment as an alternative to jail, not a Safe Injection Site that would serve as yet one more taxpayer-funded service enabling his debilitating and potentially deadly fentanyl addiction.
Joe Biden’s ‘long’ fart leaves Camilla blown away as she ‘can’t stop talking about it’ – “One of the most important things we can do in this decisive decade — to keep 1.5 degrees in reach — is reduce our methane emissions as quickly as possible.” — Joe Biden
Ex-No10 guru claims Downing Street has been possessed by climate cult Instead of advancing serious policies that would provide reliable, cheap, low-carbon energy for their own citizens and the wider world, we see the laughable spectacle of shallow politicians, desperate for the approval of self-appointed green zealots, competing with each other to spout ever-more ludicrous targets and timetables, knowing perfectly well they’ll never be held accountable for them because they will have long left office. The whole thing is a giant, flatulent mess of incoherence and sanctimony, and the only saving grace is that the ghastly Glasgow summit has helped everyone see it for what it is.

Astronomers Want NASA to Look Harder for Other Earths “You’re not going to see continents on the surface of the planets,” Bruce Macintosh, an astrophysicist at Stanford and a member of the committee, told me. But you’ll see the exoplanets as they are, no fancy NASA illustrations needed. “We’ll see distinct little dots,” Macintosh said. Some might be blue, others red or purple. If this future space telescope manages to find an Earth-like planet, it will look, at that distance, eerily familiar. We will see it as the Voyager spacecraft, on its way to the edge of the solar system, saw Earth more than 30 years ago: a fuzzy speck in the darkness, a pale blue dot, in Carl Sagan’s words. To those of us accustomed to the gleaming CGI of space movies, the image won’t look like much. But neither would Earth from that far away—and look at what we have here.
