NASA to Announce 'Surprising' Europa Discovery Monday

NASA will announce new findings about Jupiter's ocean-harboring moon Europa during a news conference at 2 p.m. EDT (1800 GMT) on Monday (Sept. 26).

"Astronomers will present results from a unique Europa observing campaign that resulted in surprising evidence of activity that may be related to the presence of a subsurface ocean on Europa," NASA officials wrote in a media advisory Tuesday (Sept. 20).

The new information comes courtesy of NASA's Hubble Space Telescope, agency officials said. You can follow the news conference live here at Space.com, courtesy of NASA.


Olympia stabbing suspect: I was responding to anti-police graffiti

A stabbing Tuesday night in downtown Olympia may have been racially motivated, according to the Olympia Police Department.

Daniel B. Rowe, 32, was arrested near the intersection of Fourth Avenue and Adams Street and booked into the Thurston County jail on suspicion of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon. Judge James Dixon found probable cause for three charges Wednesday afternoon: two counts of second-degree assault with a deadly weapon and one count of malicious harassment. He set bail at $500,000.

The male stabbing victim, a 47-year-old man, sustained only non-life threatening injuries, according to police. A 35-year-old female victim was grazed by the suspect’s knife.

Upon his arrest, Rowe allegedly told police that he had gone downtown after hearing about anti-police graffiti that had been put up Sunday night, according to court documents. He reportedly told police that if he were let go, he would head to a Donald Trump rally and stomp out more of the Black Lives Matter group.

Protester arrested in Burns, driving stolen refuge vehicle

BURNS – Oregon State Police on Friday arrested one of the protesters holding the wildlife refuge, charging him with having a stolen vehicle after he drove into town, authorities said.

The man was identified as Kenneth Medenbach, 62, of Crescent. He was accused of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle. Law enforcement officials said Medenbach is currently on federal probation stemming from another militia-style episode in southern Oregon last year.

He is the first person arrested in connection with the armed occupation of the Malheur National Wildlife Refuge, taken over two weeks ago.

He was arrested in the Safeway parking lot in one vehicle bearing federal government license plates. A second federal vehicle was parked next to him, but the man police suspect of driving that into town already had gone into the grocery before police arrived.


One Yeehawdist down, hopefully more to come.

Meanwhile, on Yelp... (Y'allQaida/Malheur)

The refuge is wonderful and the flora is representative of the region but there appears to be an influx of invasive wildlife.

The species is slow witted and easy to avoid but none the less caution is advised. Even when a bark is worse than a bite remember... there's still a bite. In the event one of these lower primates sees you and approaches there are ways to escape the interaction unscathed.

The easiest way is the dumb down your language and start spouting far right political nonsense. Phrases like "gold standard" and "sovereign citizen" should be used amid random one syllable connectors. But use caution. A broad vocabulary or use of "snotty, big-city words" could indicate higher education or as they say "too much time with the teachin lady". They don't seem to like this.

If exposed in this way you can throw a tin of chewing tobacco to lure them away or just point and yell "Obama!". Either should buy you enough time to flee. If they see a library card prepare to defend yourself. Their attack is reflexive and to the death.

One upside of their unwanted presence is park hours. Malheur is now open 24/7... for white people wearing camo.


And oh, so much more! Priceless, I tells ya.

Internet Hilariously Skewers Militia Leader's 'Daddy Swore An Oath' Video


Oh, so much win in one place!

Another day, another meme mocking the self-styled militiamen occupying a wildlife refuge in Oregon.

Jon Ritzheimer, the notorious anti-Muslim activist and one ringleader of the ongoing protest, posted a video Dec. 31 which he addressed to his children. Sitting behind the wheel of a car, Ritzheimer tearfully explained he couldn’t be home for the holidays because “your daddy swore an oath.”

“He swore an oath to protect and defend the Constitution, against all enemies foreign and domestic,” Ritzheimer says in the video, while thrusting a pocket copy of the Constitution at the camera from the front seat of an apparently parked car.

After John Darnielle, frontman of The Mountain Goats and all-around good internet presence, posted a parody of the video, #DaddySworeAnOath was born.

Dads across the internet answered Darnielle’s challenge with videos of their own.

A few of the best entries:

Ahoy, Mateys... might I interest ye in a theme song for the new menagerie?

Fifteen men on the dead man's chest
Drink and the devil had done for the rest.
The mate was fixed with the bosun's pike
Fifteen men on the dead man's chest
Drink and the devil had done for the rest.
The mate was fixed with the bosun's pike
and the bosun brained with a marlin-spike.
Cookie's throat was marked belike
It had been clutched by fingers ten.
And there they lay, all good dead men,
Like break o' day in a boozing den
Yo-ho-ho and a bottle of rum!

Fifteen men of the whole ship's list
Dead and bedamned and the rest gone whist
The skipper lay with his nob in gore
Where the scullion's axe his cheek had shore,
And the scullion he'd been stabbed times four
And there they lay, and the soggy skies
Dripped all day long up staring eyes
By murk sunset and by foul sunrise--
Yo-Ho-Ho and a bottle of rum!

Fifteen men of 'em stiff and stark
Ten of the crew bore the murder mark
'Twas a cutlass swipe or an ounce of lead,
Or a yawning hole in a battered head,
And the scuppers glut of a rotting red.
And there they lay, aye, damn my eyes,
Their lookouts clapped on Paradise,
And their souls bound just contrariwise--
Yo-Ho-Ho and a bottle of rum!

Fifteen men of 'em good and true
Every man jack could 'a sailed with Old Pew
There was chest on chest full of Spanish gold,
And a ton of plate in the middle hold,
And the cabins riot with loot untold--
And there they lay that had took the plum,
With sightless glare and lips struck dumb,
While we shared all by the rule o' thumb--
Yo-Ho-Ho and a bottle of rum!

More was seen through the stern light screen
Charting, no doubt, where a woman had been
A flimsy shift on a bunker cot
With a thin dirk slot through the bosom spot
And the lace stiff dry with a purplish blot--
Oh, was she a wench, some shuddering maid--
That dared the knife and took the blade--
By God, she was tough for a plucky jade--
Yo-Ho-Ho and a bottle of rum!

Fifteen men on the Dead Man's chest,
Yo-Ho-Ho and a bottle of rum!
Drink and the Devil had done for the rest,
Yo-Ho-Ho and a bottle of rum!

We wrapped them all in a mainsail tight,
With twice ten turns of hawser's bight.
And we heaved 'em over and out of sight,
With a yo-heave-ho and a fare-ye-well,
A sudden plunge in a sullen swell.
Ten fathoms deep on the road to hell--
Yo-Ho-Ho and a bottle of rum!
