Smoking gun on GM lies

This is why executives should face prison terms: their high salaries are in exchange for responsibility as well as authority, and they should be prosecuted.

At last some troops are becoming aware that not all orders are illegal

And specifically an order to torture is illegal—that’s what the CIA is for. The CIA can torture (even torture to death) with no penalties, no repercussions. But the military is (theoretically) subject to the Military Code of Justice.

At any rate, a Navy nurse has decline to participate in forced feedings at Guantánamo.

What happens to a McDonald’s hamburger left in a desk for five years?

with one comment

Answer: nothing. It’s still as good as it was, more or less. What are they made of?

It’s a true story (with photo of 5-year-old bun and patty at the link).

Patent trolls now account for 67 percent of all new patent lawsuits

Amazing story, albeit brief (and it includes a graph). If we had a functional Congress, we could put a stop to this immediately. But we cannot seem to govern ourselves.

Flawless shave—and then no shaving till next Monday

with 4 comments

SOTD 15 July 2014

An absolute perfect shave. My Rooney Style 2 Finest generated a very nice lather from the TFS shaving soap, and then Mr. Stealth wiped off the stubble easily and comfortably. A good splash of Clean Vetiver from Fine and my mug is ready for my dental appointment.

No more shaving until Monday, when I will test the efficiency of the Stealth on a 5-day stubble. There has been speculation that, since it is so comfortable, it could not possibly do an efficient job on thick stubble. We’ll see. (My own idea is that this is related to the notion that medicines must taste bad or they’re not effective.)
