An American is a descendant of the mostly British men who settled the Thirteen Colonies and fought the War for Independence that is celebrated today. Americans are the Posterity of the Preamble, whose rights are articulated in the United States Constitution, whose “British brethren” were described in the Declaration of Independence, and whose forefathers declared Independence from the King of England. No one else is an American, regardless of what ideas they claim to believe, where they reside, or what paperwork they carry.
The Oldest Orbiting Satellite | Vanguard 1 circles the earth in an elliptical orbit with a perigee of 654 km and an apogee of 3,969 km. Because of its high orbit, where atmospheric drag is less, Vanguard 1 was expected to last 2,000 years. But scientists underestimated the effects of solar radiation pressure and atmospheric drag during high levels of solar activity. When these were taken into account, it was found that the satellite would last only about two centuries…
Inside L.A.’s Most Iconic Example of Mid-century Modern Architecture | “This lot was in pure view—every morning, every night,” Carlotta Stahl recalled. Locals called it Pecker Point, presumably because it was a prime makeout venue. For the Stahls, it became the blank screen on which they projected their dreams of a life together, a place to build a future, a family, and a house like no other.

Who the Hell Is in Charge? by Kurt Schlichter What it seems to be is various fiefdoms within the *dministration each doing their own thing, a federalism of failure as it were. And the best part is that their tunnel vision keeps them from seeing where they are creating huge issues for the *dministration as a whole. Take CRT, please. The PC platoon is going full-tilt on it, using the bureaucracy to push this crap without any regard for the fact that everyone hates it, except liberals. They see this as their one shot to take this noxious brew of racism and Marxism out of the faculty lounge and throw it into normal people’s faces, but what they are doing is spinning up a backlash. When little Billy – because normal people name their kids normal names and not annoying ones like “Kaden” – comes home and announces his teacher’s pronouns are xip/xork and that he is personally responsible for slavery, that motivates people to resist.
Brilliant Visions: Peyote among the Aesthetes When Ellis passed him a piece of biscuit to relieve his nausea, it “suddenly streamed out into blue flame”, an electric conflagration that spread across the right-hand side of his body. “As I placed the biscuit in my mouth it burst again into the same coloured fire and illuminated the interior of my mouth, casting a blue reflection on the roof. The light in the Blue Grotto at Capri, I am able to affirm, is not nearly as blue as seemed for a short space of time the interior of my mouth.
Why work? There are no stimulus checks for those who work. Obamacare is full price if you work. Getting up early and enduring the woke culture at work – no thanks. Work is for suckers. A significant part of the population has already figured this out. Now those who are productive are figuring this out.
About 7 years ago, some gamma wrote an article about how we need to bend over backwards to pull more women into STEM careers. All I did was post a comment that women make their own life choices, and if they are not flocking to STEM careers, it is because they don’t want to, not because they are being prevented. Within 24 hours, I was contacted by the legal department of the company I was working for at the time, and told to take the post down. The attorney told me that the switchboard had been flooded with calls, mostly from angry women from over 15 countries that did not like my 2-sentence comment. I wiped my account after that. It is just not worth it.

On many Japanese toilets, the hand wash sink is attached so that you can wash your hands and reuse the water for the next flush. Japan saves millions of liters of water every year doing this. : interestingasfuck
Soon after, I—Am—The—Man is indentured to a guide, whose face, “if a face it could be called, was wet, and water dripped from all parts of his slippery person. . . the moisture seemed to ooze as from the hide of a water lizard”. The lizardly usher leads the now-aged man to the underworld (the entrance of which, we learn, is to be found in Kentucky).
