It’s flu shot season, but even people who support childhood vaccines are sometimes a bit iffy about the flu shot. Is it really necessary, or just a scam? Can you get sick from it? Do you really have to get it every year? Let’s try to put your mind at ease.
Greetings, Unicorns. This week we have an update on the Freddie Gray case, SCOTUS decisions, and the Confederate Flag on its way out from public display. This and more, so let’s get started:
Happy Friday, everyone. Is it Springtime where you are yet? I hope so. This week’s newsy roundup has a lot of political stories, but we’ll end with good news. Let’s get started:
Happy Friday, everyone! In addition to all the sciencin’ and entertainment news, we have some politics-related stories to cover, so let’s get started:
President Obama’s State of the Union address on Tuesday had its fair share of highlights, and we’ve also got updates on the situation in Yemen, a found Mars lander, and much more. It’s time for Friday News Bites…
Every time you think that the Republican wing of the U.S. House of Representatives has exhausted their list of fit-throwing methods, they double down and find new ways to be petulant children. On a related note: I may be a bit cranky about the world this week. Shocking, I know.
As a political humorist, I gravitate toward bad news and schadenfreude. This is hardly surprising since satirists are often inspired by idiotic comments, horrible laws, and ludicrous judicial decisions.
Buckle up, everyone, it’s about to get rough up in here. Hobby Lobby went before the Supreme Court this week, so that could really suck if the court sides with them. Our new weekly list of terrible people is just ridiculous today, and schools are also being particularly shitty. But to balance that out, we […]
Because why are we still calling it a walk of shame anyway? Oh right, because people are terrible. Let’s see just how terrible people were this week! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
So many people were truly terrible this week, but we’ve got a few awesome people to try to balance them out. And if you somehow missed the worst Photoshop ever, you’re gonna love this week’s TWiM! (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Friends, I lived in Spokane, Washington for seven years, where Cathy McMorris Rodgers kept getting reelected, while the Democratic party seemed to merely wring their hands and would run ineffectual candidates against her. After her barrage of campaign ads, we would then get her “surveys” in the mail asking what our “concerns” were, all with […]
Welcome to 2014! Things don’t seem to be much better here in the future, do they? (As usual, trigger warnings for pretty much everything apply.)
Even though it sounds melodramatic, I feel like sometimes we are living life under siege. This feeling is much stronger now that the House Republicans have shut down our country’s government because they are displeased with the Affordable Care Act, aka “Obamacare.”
I’m going to try a new format this week: bad news, good news. Hopefully we’ll all feel a bit more cheerful at the end of it.
For anyone who doesn’t known someone in 12-step recovery or who doesn’t have a folk-wisdom-spouting Bubbe (or Nona or Grammy or Nana, etc.), “the definition of insanity is doing the same thing and expecting a different result.” This perhaps-overused aphorism has so many useful applications, I won’t bore you with too many. (Let’s just say […]
