RoadGizmodo notes that NYC must have really smelled like s**t back in the summers of the late nineteenth century: "Crossing a street could be an unsavory affair. In New York city, by one estimate, horses left behind 2.5 million pounds of manure and sixty thousand gallons of urine every day. That amounts to roughly four hundred tons of manure a year — enough to float three Nimitz-class nuclear aircraft carriers and a half-dozen navy destroyers. Forget the smell and mess; imagine the flies."

RoadThe universe is 'missing' light: "Observations made by the Cosmic Origins Spectrograph, a $70 million instrument designed by the University of Colorado Boulder and installed on the Hubble Space Telescope, have revealed that the universe is  'missing' a large amount of light. 'It’s as if you’re in a big, brightly lit room, but you look around and see only a few 40-watt lightbulbs,' said the Carnegie Institution for Science’s Juna Kollmeier, lead author of a new study on the missing light published in The Astrophysical Journal Letters. 'Where is all that light coming from? It’s missing from our census.'"

RoadObama responds to Boehner lawsuit: "There are a number of Republicans, including a number in the Texas delegation, who are mad at me for taking these actions. They actually plan to sue me. Now, I don't know which things they find most offensive — me helping to create jobs, or me raising wages, or me easing the student loan burdens, or me making sure women can find out whether they're getting paid the same as men for doing the same job. I don't know which of these actions really bug them."

RoadRob Portman candidacy presents "nightmare scenario" for Republicans: "It’s not hard to imagine that Senator Ted Cruz might offer precisely the opposite case from Portman, making the argument that the party must reaffirm its support for “traditional marriage” key to his GOP presidential primary run. This could come after the Supreme Court has declared a Constitutional right to gay marriage — which Cruz would then be vociferously calling on Republicans to help roll back."

  1. Megyn Kelly is actually correct, at least if the reporting about her segment is accurate.

    The problem on the court is not the men -- it's the bigots. True, they are men, but they aren't ALL the men. Even if they were, that would still be irrelevant.

    Anyone who thinks men can't judge contraception should also agree that Judge Walker could never have ruled on Prop 8.

    And NOBODY banned contraception. The court has simply directed insurers, or federal government to pick up the tab when employers and non-profits won't. This is actually a good thing, as it yet another step toward Medicare for all.

  2. A "pedophilia-affirming club?" So no catholic universities?

  3. The upper Midwest and Northeast does not equal "the nation." We are under a rare extended heat wave in the West.

  7. "Matt Barber: Parents should not send their kids to Christian colleges with gay clubs."

    I was 18 when I went away to college: an adult. My parents didn't "send" me there. I went because I chose to. Apparently the children of christian parents stay children . . . FOREVER.

  9. Megyn Kelly is not right because she does not understand what sexism is. Nancy Pelosi is right because she does. Men control the power and influence in this country (as they do in most of the world). Those without power cannot by definition be sexist. This argument is as stupid as those who say something about how black people are racist. They are misusing that word.
