President Trump birthed a meme in an interview published Thursday morning when he claimed to have coined the phrase “prime the pump.”

Protesters light torches at Lee Park to protest statue removal
A large group of protesters gathered at Lee Park on Saturday night to stand against the decision to remove Confederate monuments from Charlottesville.

Our media partners at the Daily Progress report the protesters were carrying torches, even chanting "You will not replace us," "Russia is our friend," and "Blood and soil."

After about 10 minutes, Charlottesville police arrived at the scene following an altercation between protesters.

In a statement, Charlottesville mayor Mike Signer said, "This event involving torches at night in Lee Park was either profoundly ignorant or was designed to instill fear in our minority populations in a way that hearkens back to the days of the KKK."

No, Congressman, There's No Evidence of an Ancient Mars Civilization
In case you were wondering, there's no evidence that Mars hosted an alien civilization thousands of years ago.

Nonetheless, Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Calif., asked a panel of planetary scientists to speculate about this possibility today (July 18), during a hearing of the U.S. House of Representatives' Committee on Science, Space and Technology's Space Subcommittee.

An Orange County social media stunt has bicyclists on edge
Tony Petros has seen a lot as a cyclist and former Newport Beach city councilman.

But he’s not likely to forget a recent Wednesday evening ride on Pacific Coast Highway by Mariner’s Mile, when a pickup truck jumped from the leftmost lane and toward his bicycle.

“Young kids started screaming (‘butt dart’) at me,” Petros said. “They kept doing it, and it wasn’t funny.”

The “butt dart” stunt — an act of pointing a finger gun, making a shooting noise and yelling at cyclists — has gained traction recently on social media. As silly as the act may seem, Orange County cyclists say it has them intimidated.

Train Collides With Truck Hauling Hydrochloric Acid, 3 People Injured
Officials say the CSX train was traveling southbound when it collided with the tanker truck, which was carrying more than 4,000 gallons of hydrochloric acid.
....
An investigation into the cause of the crash remains open, but authorities say it appears the driver of the tanker truck was trying to beat the train when the collision happened.

What Is an Incel? A Term Used by the Toronto Van Attack Suspect, Explained
Minutes before turning his van onto a Toronto sidewalk on Monday, killing 10 people and injuring more than a dozen others, Alek Minassian wrote a post on Facebook, according to the Canadian authorities.

In it, he praised Elliot Rodger, who in 2014 shot and killed six people in Isla Vista, Calif. Mr. Minassian, 25, also wrote of an “incel rebellion,” referring to a term, shorthand for “involuntary celibates,” used online by a community of misogynists to describe themselves.

“The Incel Rebellion has already begun!” the posting read. “We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys! All hail Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!”
