New York Times to Start Publishing Tax Returns of Everyone Who Cancels Subscription  “We’re sitting here,” said Sulzberger, “publishing garbage stories about gay presidential candidates and unnamed royal babies and junk like that – no one pays us any mind. We say that we’ve got Trump’s tax returns, and next thing you know, everyone’s reading newspapers again. Or at least the Drudge Report, which is like an online newspaper. I wish WE were an online newspaper that people liked reading. We are going broke so fast.”

The Astronaut Who Took This Photo, is The Only Human Ever to Exist That Isn’t in The Frame Even if you weren’t born at the time, you are in that photograph because the matter that eventually became you was already there on Earth. Everyone is. Except for one human – astronaut Michael Collins, the man behind the camera.

Kuwaiti academic claims suppository “cure” for homosexuality  Al-Sohel claimed, “This is science, and there is nothing to be ashamed of,” and “the sexual urge develops when a person is sexually attacked, and afterward it persists because there is an anal worm that feeds on semen.” Al-Sohel said her inventions of suppositories “cures those urges by exterminating the worm that feeds on the semen.”

Why You Should Start Binge-Reading Right Now – There is no team of brilliant and vaguely sinister engineers, cooking up ways to get you binge reading. There is no auto-play technology frictionlessly delivering you from one chapter of the novel you’re reading to the next. There is only you, alone in the silence of your room with a chapter break before you and your phone cooing at you from the dresser. No one could blame you for putting “The Count of Monte Cristo” back on the bedside table where it spends its days. Maybe, like a long-forgotten glass of water, it will evaporate of its own accord.

Hillary Clinton told she is ‘going to jail’ by heckler on last night of speaking tour in Vegas | The pair spoke in front of an auditorium that was around two-thirds full, after tickets priced in the hundreds of dollars were cut to a tenth of their price at the last minute in order to boost attendance. During the Los Angeles leg of their tour, which came immediately before Vegas, seats had been selling for as little as $2.

Deputies Are No Longer Responding to Calls in Portland “False narratives, knee jerk political reactions, along with personal and political agendas have created a hostile work environment and made it an impossible task to effectively police in the City of Portland. Our police officers are frustrated. They deserve better. They deserve to work in an environment where they can perform their primary function – — keeping our communities safe –” with the support of City Hall. Similarly, our communities are frustrated. They deserve better. They deserve safe, clean streets. It’s that simple,” the PPA’s post read.

UNC Charlotte shooting hero, an ROTC cadet, receives burial with full military honor  Howell’s sister Iris said he “unapologetically lived as who he was” and set an example to be “bigger than the small things this world wants us to be hung up on.”

“My superhero doesn’t wear a cape, he wears Tevas,” said his brother Teddy.

Vologda Butter –   Vereshchagin found that running the milk through the cream separator twice, rather than the standard one time, yielded a richer, sweeter butter. He found, moreover, that churning butter from hot cream, warmed for 10 to 15 minutes to just below boiling point, yielded a nuttier aftertaste. This small but significant innovation, combined with the particular terrain on which Vologda’s grass-fed cows grazed, yielded unmatched buttery perfection.

Raising children isn’t easy. But grooming dogs is very simple when there are stores to do it for you. Cooking is hard, but our urban world is now full of restaurants. All entertainment becomes passive. All goods become disposable, and essentially generic. We have an economy built around convenience, or more precisely, the propaganda of convenience. (Whether commuting to one’s repetitive work for six hours a day is truly convenient, is another question.)

Complicit Rightness One of the unmistakable features of the modern Left is the increasing hostility to Jews and Jewish issues, particularly Israel. The new darlings of the coalition of the vibrant have a habit of displaying hostility to Israel. Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-Somalia) sounds like a member of Hamas when it comes to our greatest ally. Despite the loud noises from other members of the Left, Omar has suffered no consequences. You can’t help but get the feeling that behind closed doors, the woke women of the Left are not enthusiastic for the Tribe.

I Was the Mob Until the Mob Came for Me – Every time I would call someone racist or sexist, I would get a rush. That rush would then be reaffirmed and sustained by the stars, hearts, and thumbs-up that constitute the nickels and dimes of social media validation. The people giving me these stars, hearts, and thumbs-up were engaging in their own cynical game: A fear of being targeted by the mob induces us to signal publicly that we are part of it.

The Anatomy Lesson by Rembrandt

The corpse is that of the criminal Aris Kindt (alias of Adriaan Adriaanszoon), who was convicted for armed robbery and sentenced to death by hanging. He was executed earlier on the same day of the scene. The face of the corpse is partially shaded, a suggestion of umbra mortis (shadow of death), a technique that Rembrandt was to use frequently. — La Wikipedia

    What I don’t understand about the Corporation of Batshit Crazy Biddies is the obsession they have with their nether regions. Really. Why are they creating things representing the woo woo? What’s the end game?

    Full-bodied post.

    The pillow: at least it isn’t an anus. I think the poop emoji is bringing us to this low point in culture. The Kuwaiti cure for homos? I thought it’d be a cork suppository. A-hem!

    Good to remember reading as a discipline and an enjoyment. I keep several books in play at all times – never seem to finish any but read a lot. Victor Davis Hanson is a favorite contemporary. Gregory Sullican’s flash fiction is a favorite for pure enjoyment. Art history is a mainstay.

    Rembrandt! Even Rembrandt couldn’t stay “Rembrandt” forever – he loosened up so much in his time that he discarded almost all of his patronage. Although he died a pauper, and without fanfare at the time, his status throughout history is secure because he lived the artist’s life. never satisfied. Always becoming but never arriving. Now computers with AI riff on his works, and his name is a household name.

    Outsourcing cops? When the cops are adopting liberal mayor tactics, the people will find better solutions. Maybe we need to outsource the state. Hmmm.

    Gerard, you are always titillating, no matter how depraved. Your disgusting objectivation of female parts dishonors your mother and all women you purport to care for. I am totally disgusted by your graphic posts and relish my First Amendment right to walk away and never come back to your site.

  • Lance de Boyle May 11, 2019, 12:29 PM

    Last time I had occasion to look—which was some time ago–female parts WERE objects.
    “I am totally disgusted by your graphic posts and relish….”
    No relish is served on this site. But, and follow me closely here, if it were, it would be delicious.
    No one is interested in your relish preferences, anyway, Missy.
    The First Amendment is silent on the subject of walking away. Worship, speech, press, assembly, petition. Nothing on walking away. Don’t try adding to it, Missy. Just leave it alone.
    Make us a sammich on your way out (hold the relish) and take your disgusting, objectified female parts with you.

    Don’t order that pillow in scratch and sniff. You’re dog won’t forgive you.

  • OneGuy May 12, 2019, 3:25 PM

    The purpose of the vulva pillow and other references to clitoris etc. is to shame men. Probably justified in some cases but that begs the question. It is an anti-male agenda and a pro-lesbian agenda.
