Not Happening

Donald’s feelings are hurt:

Hillary Clinton has defended her claim that the so-called Islamic State is using videos of Donald Trump’s anti-Muslim rhetoric to attract followers.

Mr Trump disputed that the videos exist and demanded an apology, to which Ms Clinton’s spokesman said “hell no”.

I would note that multiple counter-terrorism officials have made the same claim as Mrs Clinton, and the ISIS propaganda machine has been portraying the West as anti-Muslim for years.

Reefer Madness 2.0

The CBC notes that Bizarre ‘Stoner Sloth’ anti-marijuana campaign delights the internet. You really need to watch the unaltered version at the top of the post which are the official PSAs [Public Service Announcements for those who have never worked in Public Relations] of the government of New South Wales, Australia. Later in the article they have the ‘creatively edited’ versions.

An Australian writer at the ABC notes that Stoner Sloth is a symptom of our inept drug debate. Actually this is the result of refusing to study the actual effects of various drugs, i.e. the result of ignorance.

Holiday Travel

This is a prime example of why you should make a list and check it twice when traveling during holidays. Following stars is all well and good, but can you tell the difference between a star and a meteorite headed directly for you?

If you are migrating home, or off on a vacation, be safe.

Happy HogWatch & Solstice

snowflakeAt 10:48 PM CST the winter solstice occurs marking the longest night of the year. If everyone has been good, the days start getting longer tomorrow. Locally, the sun will rise at 6:39AM and set at 4:40PM for a total of 10 hours and 10 minutes of daylight, but tomorrow will be a whole 1 second longer.

This also marks HogsWatch, so don’t forget to put out the turnips.
