  • It is “standard procedure” to tase a 5’4″ kid in the genitals while screaming you”re going to kill him. Worked, too. They killed him just fine. Then the lies commenced.
  • The money quote: “If architects designed buildings the way engineers design software, the first woodpecker would destroy civilization.” Thanks, Borepatch.
  • Satire. Reality. On Rand Paul’s attempt to stop the endless Afghan war.
  • We can only wish this were satire: Is your refrigerator a national security risk? (H/T ML)
  • Although some of the “solutions” are dreadful, it’s certainly true that our SSNs are a crappy personal identifier.
  • ICE pays Arizona motel employees to report illegal aliens. Two Motel 6 locations (that we know of) have automated systems to turn in ALL guests from Mexico.
  • Custom’s agents seize an innocent man’s truck over five “bullets”*. And a photo the privileged agents of the state objected to. Two years later, this fierce libertarian is suing to get his property back.
  • Red-pill liberals. Oh, how I hope this makes a difference.
  • John Judis who, with Ruy Texiera, literally wrote the book claiming demographics = destiny for the Dems now says he was wrong.
  • Have the cheap seats in airplanes become so cramped that they’d kill or cripple you in a “brace for impact” scenario?
  • How a sneaky sausage saved hundreds of Portugal’s Jews from the Spanish Inquisition.
  • Thirteen bizarro face swaps.

* Hey, it’s the WaPo; what can you say? At least their heart’s in the right place this time, even if their terminology still sucks.
