Dudebro Twitter is taking Moore's loss about the way we expected:











By this logic the Patriots should give away their Lombardis and tear down the team since their margins of victory weren't wide enough

Seriously, fuck these people...

There's plenty more but I'll end here since most of them are reading from the same talking points...

Well someone's in a festive mood...


MEANWHILE, in Germany:

Swiss woman angry over champagne refusal ejected from plane

BERLIN (AP) - German police say the pilot of a passenger jet destined for Zurich made an unscheduled stop at Stuttgart airport because a Swiss passenger become aggressive after being denied champagne.

Reutlingen police say crew members were unable to calm the 44-year-old business class passenger, who was angered by their refusal to serve her more sparkling wine on the flight from Moscow late Saturday.

Police said in a statement Sunday that the woman, who wasn't named, was escorted off the Airbus A320 and ordered to pay a security of 5,000 euros ($5,871). They said the 43 passengers on board were never in danger, but the total cost involved in the unplanned stopover likely amounted to several tens of thousands of euros.


Tech firms draw flak over hiring record number of eye-candy models for parties

That lovely young woman at your tech company’s holiday party may profess to be tight with your firm’s most-talented software engineer, but she may actually have been hired by your company for your viewing pleasure and a little chitchat.

As Silicon Valley seethes with sexual harassment scandals, tech companies are seeding their holiday parties with paid models, according to a new report.

Several agencies providing models for events said a “record number” of tech firms are quietly paying up to $200 an hour for each model hired to “chat up” party-goers, Bloomberg reported Thursday.

“I find it really highly disturbing,” said Adriana Gascoigne, CEO of Girls in Tech. “It’s disappointing and deflating to see this news and see how it’s still spreading and how some companies and some people think it’s still OK to treat women this way.

“Models come and interact with these awkward male engineers who may not be able to socialize with members of the opposite sex or bring a date. It’s like buying women to exploit their bodies and their physical attributes. Women have to work 10 times as hard to prove ourselves in the world, and this doesn’t help our cause.”

This coming weekend, the Cre8 Agency will send 25 women and five men, “all good looking,” to hang out with a virtually all-male staff from a San Francisco gaming company, the agency’s president told Bloomberg. Officials from the client company went through photos of models, picked the ones they wanted, made them sign non-disclosure agreements, and gave them names of employees they could say they were friends with, so the wouldn’t appear to be hired help, Bloomberg reported.



Holy damn... $200/hour just to feign interest in some random lonely geek's conversation?

Yeah, we've all seen how this story ends...



The War on Christmas gets taken up a notch (again)


At some point he stops being a "useful idiot" and becomes a hardcore "enemy combatant"







Seriously -- If anybody is even *thinking* about trying to defend Glennbo here, DON'T

I told you all Nomiki Konst was going to do at the unity commission was fling shit everywhere...
