So Trump is right that this is a witch hunt. And he’s right that there’s no underlying crime, at least based on the evidence we’ve seen. The big problem is that Trump insisted on putting on a witch’s hat and dancing around the fire shouting incantations while maintaining, correctly, that witches aren’t real. -Ben Shapiro

I had a hard time deciding where to put this. If you're a fan of the movie Arrival, or "movie science" in general, or super-ultra-mega-geniuses like Stephan Wolfram, you might enjoy:

That coffee that’s keeping you awake? Have more. It may help you live longer
According to scientists at the Stanford University School of Medicine, drinking coffee may help protect older people against inflammation, which is what ultimately causes many age-related diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, joint problems, Alzheimer’s and many types of cancer.

Better yet, the Stanford docs say the more caffeine the oldsters drank, the more protection they received against chronic inflammation.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Not likely. It sucks to be Stern. I will remind you that the middle letter in IAU is A not P and not G. A as in Astronomical. The IAU was founded to promote and safeguard Astronomy. Insulting them will do him no good. Our Moon is not a planet. Mike Brown is the Pluto-killer and he's also involved in the discovery of other TNO's. It's a busy place out there and there is lots to be discovered.

This story should have been posted in whining in the news. I'll bet they call the next new one WDTWH. Watch and see.

Conan O’Brien Makes Guest Appearance On Mexican Telenovela ‘Mi Adorable Maldición’
“It was a dream come true,” O’Brien told Hoy, a Mexican morning TV program, in an interview shared Monday. “I love telenovelas. In the U.S. I watch the ones in Spanish. I love them. I wanted to be in one, and they let me turn into this mysterious man that sells cheese.”

Three cheers for the person at DC who decided they should maybe stop rebooting Batman every couple of years and finally start doing new stuff.
