Today I found out the most fucking insane thing and that's George Clooney did all those Nespresso ads so he could spend millions of dollars keeping his own private satellite in orbit over Sudan for years to keep track of war crimes being committed by the Sudanese government

This is quite concerning: his poll numbers are *up* ?!

Whether you're looking for a way out of the Gulag or just a plan B for the next time you land in Facebook jail, moving from one centralized social network to another won't do you much good.

Breitbart in Facebook News is not an accident. The domination of trolls and fake news over authentic content isn't, either. Nor hiring Daily Caller as fact checker. Nor giving Trump a pass from fact checks and community standards.

Doctors Are Still Prescribing Opioids to Kids After Taking Out Their Tonsils

6 out of 10 doctors still doing that 8 years after the guidelines recommended they stop - because it is not more effective than ibuprofen anyway
