George Stinney, 14, Executed In Vile Act Of Injustice, Exonerated 70s Years Late

While watching this I literally had tears streaming down my face for this poor little boy. Actually, I simply can't stop crying ten minutes later. Thinking of how fucking terrified he must have been when they were strapping him into the electric chair and how he was tortured by it in a most horrific manor. God fucking dam those bastards who did this to him!

2014 will be the hottest year on record

For those of us fixated on whether 2014 will be the hottest year on record, the results are in. At least, we know enough that we can make the call. According the global data from NOAA, 2014 will be the hottest year ever recorded.

I can make this pronouncement even before the end of the year because each month, I collect daily global average temperatures. So far, December is running about 0.5C above the average. The climate and weather models predict that the next week will be about 0.75C above average. This means, December will come in around 0.6C above average. Are these daily values accurate? Well the last two months they have been within 0.05C of the final official results.

What does this all mean? Well, when I combine December with the year-to-date as officially reported, I predict the annual temperature anomaly will be 0.674C. This beats the prior record by 0.024C. That is a big margin in terms of global temperatures.

For those of us who are not fixated on whether any individual year is a record but are more concerned with trends, this year is still important. Particularly because according to those who deny the basic physics and our understanding of climate change, this year wasnt supposed to be particularly warm.



His Shirt Is Powerful But His Unscripted Words Are Impossible To Ignore

I must say that Andrew Hawkins is beautifully eloquent, sensitive and sharp as a tack. The black community should think about elevating him as a leader if he is interested in taking on the job. Can't tell you how impressed I am with this class act!

Meathead Cop Whines That Cops Are The Victoms In Tamir Rice Shooting

Everyone should be calling the Cleveland Police to complain about this ass hole! 216-623-5000

And here is the number to the Cleveland Police Patrolmen's Association: 216-623-3333

His name is Jeffrey Follmer


All Kids are born scientists, but are crushed by society itself - Michio Kaku

I changed the title because he didn't say kids are born geniuses, he said scientists.

I remember taking Marine Biology in Junior HS. The entire fucking class was learning Phylums and classifications. This page right here is pretty much the whole lousy semester: http://quizlet.com/4727446/11-marine-bio-phylums-flash-cards/ Such a fascinating subject and I was board stiff! HATED that fucking class! It was like, lets take something really interesting and find a way to bore the fuck out of kids so never in a million years would they want to become a Marin Biologist. This goes for most of my science classes and I LOVE science! I did have some good professors in college who knew how to keep the subject fascinating.

Man arrested for pointing a banana at cops

The way cops are today I would never try this even as a white guy. If he had been black and tried this, he would probably be dead with 50 bullets in him.
