Today's Internets - McDonald's McDouble Edition.

 "North Carolina sterilized 7,600 people from 1929 to 1974 who were deemed socially or mentally unfit. Victims were as young as 10 years old and nearly all were sterilized forcibly or with inadequate consent, according to the state...

The sterilizations were conducted under the authority of the Eugenics Board of North Carolina. North Carolina was one of the nations most ruthless states in pursuing the agenda of the Eugenics movement. So much so, that the state granted authority to social workers and welfare officials to petition for the sterilization of their clients. The last recorded forced sterilization was in 1981.

North Carolina is not the only state to be experiencing controversy over forced sterilization. California's prison system has come under severe criticism, after reports that close to 150 female prisoners were sterilized without their consent between the years 2006 and 2010."

 "It has 390 calories. It contains 23g, or half a daily serving, of protein, plus 7% of daily fiber, 20% of daily calcium and so on. Also, you can get it in 14,000 locations in the US and it usually costs $1. Presenting one of the unsung wonders of modern life, the McDonald’s McDouble cheeseburger...
The outraged replies to the notion of McDouble supremacy — if it’s not the cheapest, most nutritious and most bountiful food in human history, it has to be pretty close — comes from the usual coalition of class snobs, locavore foodies and militant anti-corporate types. I say usual because these people are forever proclaiming their support for the poor and for higher minimum wages that would supposedly benefit McDonald’s workers. But they’re completely heartless when it comes to the other side of the equation: cost..."

"Early Saturday morning, Roy Middleton was rummaging through his mother's car in the driveway of his Warrington, Florida, home, looking for a cigarette, when he heard someone bark, "Get your hands where I can see them!" Middleton initially thought it was a neighbor playing a joke on him, but when he turned his head he saw Escambia County sheriff's deputies standing in his driveway. The next thing he knew, he says, they were shooting at him. "It was like a firing squad," Middleton told the Pensacola News Journal. "Bullets were flying everywhere." Middleton was lucky the deputies were terrible shots. His injuries were limited to a leg wound. "My mother's car is full of bullet holes though," he said. "My wife had to go and get a rental.""

"Sir Patrick Stewart is a consummate actor whose professionalism is beyond reproach.... except when Sir Patrick Stewart isn't, because Sir Patrick Stewart can't remember his damn lines. As you might guess, this blooper reel — more of which will be on the Star Trek: TNG season 4 set released tomorrow — features the latter. Additional warning: Once you see Worf giggle, you can never unsee it. From one who knows."

Warren Ellis vs Wil Wheaton is Glorious.

"George W. Bush and Dick Cheney spent eight years choking personal privacy to within an inch of its life. After they were done, Barack Obama showed up, expressed heartfelt sympathy and stood on its throat."

The basic American belief system is mystical & occultic - One Simple Idea: Positive Thinking | TDG - Science, Magick, Myth and History
"Mitch Horowitz, author of the most excellent Occult America, has a new book out in around 6 months time: One Simple Idea: How Positive Thinking Reshaped Modern Life. The book charts the history and significant impact of the positive-thinking movement, starting with its origins in the mystical philosophies of certain movements during the mid-nineteenth century, through to its manifestation in the modern day, from Ronald Reagan's speeches to the bestselling book The Secret."

"...one of the themes in Secret Six is, LIFE WILL TRY TO KICK THE LIVING SHIT OUT OF YOU. The Six are not the people to run into a burning building to save an orphan. They are much more like us, which is why people relate to them. The average person deals with betrayal and poverty and tragedy and illness and disappointment and loneliness their entire life. Where is their medal, where is their parade? They deal with that every day, many have the addition of spirit crushing jobs, and they get up every day and try to make things better. Why?"  
"Either for themselves, because they have to try, or for someone they care about, that they feel responsible for. THAT is quiet heroism. It doesn’t look like Superman and it doesn’t wear a cape, but getting up out of bed when you know your entire day will be a struggle where people are throwing chains on you to weigh you down, that’s heroic. That is what the Secret Six faced—it was always fanciful and fantasy based, but those feelings of loneliness or unrequited love or lust, the feeling that no one thinks well of you, that people are actively out to keep you from rising up…that’s what I think the Secret Six faced all the time, and that’s where I think their courage showed. Not so much in defeating bad guys, but in getting up every day to put their clothes on and try to do more." 

"Overall, 47% say their greater concern about government anti-terrorism policies is that they have gone too far in restricting the average person's civil liberties, while 35% say they are more concerned that policies have not gone far enough to protect the country. This is the first time in Pew Research polling that more have expressed concern over civil liberties than protection from terrorism since the question was first asked in 2004."

"At a suburban garden party how many 40+ men will tell you, that they really like 20 yr old girls with hot bodies? Not their “pride and happy plus size” wives? And when a man wants to lay you, does he says that he’d rather fuck that 19 year old waitress, but he has a better chance with you? No, people in the real world tend to tell the same Disney bullshit while in reality they want something very different...

It’s not about women over 33 being less attractive. It’s about them being more prude. They want to use sex as a weapon against men by utilizing it as a bargaining chip in exchange for resources, money, and commitment, whereas the young girls just want to fuck and have a good time, which is exactly what the older men want. So by restricting older men from messaging the younger women, the older women think they are securing the market and forcing the men into the provider role by cutting them off from those so called “slutty traitors to the sisterhood.” Then they tell themselves that they are secretly working in the younger girls’ best interests because the young ones don’t have the self esteem yet to set a price for their vaginas higher than the penis in exchange!

I think older women are super hot. I want to have sex with them and often do. Yet it’s so easy to paint men like us as pigs who think older women are ugly and simply want younger women because they’re better looking (which they often are not). The reality that many women don’t want to hear is that women over age 33 tend to be more jaded, bitchy, and prude than women under 33. Even if they have higher sex drives and a more ravenous sexual desire than younger women, they tend to have many more rules about when it’s “appropriate” for them to have sex. They will usually demand men jump through many more hoops to get to sex than women under 33...  When men point out that women under 33 don’t usually do these things, these older women will imply strongly that younger women are stupid or sluts. It doesn’t occur to these older women that very attitude is part of exactly what turns men off. It’s all of THAT stuff that makes older women less attractive to strong, confident, high sex drive men. It has nothing whatsoever to do with how they look. Most older men consider older women extremely beautiful and sexy, myself included." 

"A Good Samaritan snapped photos of what appeared to be two men impersonating police officers involved in a pistol-whipping and robbery outside a Citgo gas station on Detroit's east side on July 21. Once Fox 2 aired those photos, an even more disturbing picture developed. ... Now under arrest are two police sergeants, a 47-year-old officer and 20-year veteran."
