I was making a tuna salad sandwich and it occurred to me that the weirdest way to commit suicide that I could think of is to eat canned tuna every day until you get and eventually succumb mercury poisoning.
I ran out of prescription drugs over a week ago, for the record.
"Do you think it was fair, what they got? They did something stupid, but I don’t know. I’m not blaming the girl, but if you’re a 16-year-old and you’re drunk like that, your parents should teach you—don’t take drinks from other people. She’s 16, why was she that drunk where she doesn’t remember? It could have been much worse. She’s lucky. Obviously I don’t know, maybe she wasn’t a virgin, but she shouldn’t have put herself in that position, unless they slipped her something, then that’s different."
Exclusive: U.S. Soccer stands by Leroux's racism allegations
Loon for All | Google
While we’ll never know for certain if any chants of a racist nature did or didn’t rain down on Leroux out west, Canadian soccer message boards since then have given insight into some of the questionable Leroux chants supporters have conjured up in the past — one of which takes aim at Leroux’s “deadbeat” dad for “leaving” her.
“He doesn’t love you,” the chant finishes.
Whether the above chant was used in Vancouver remains a mystery, but it was featured on prominent Canadian soccer message board, The Voyageurs.
Uhh… Isn’t saying that saying someone has a dead beat dad is racist, racist?
Project Loon looks to use a global network of high-altitude balloons to connect people in rural and remote areas who have no Internet access at all, help fill coverage gaps for areas that canât be served profitably by existing providers, and rapidly connect people after disasters when existing infrastructure has been compromised. By trying something new - a network of Internet-equipped, high-altitude balloons that travel the stratospheric winds - we hope to bring Internet access to everyone.
I take back my sarcastic remark one post back. IT IS A GOOD DAY FOR SCIENCE. This is cool as hell.

Etheridge calls Jolie's mastectomy a "fearful choice"
Melissa Etheridge said she wouldn’t call Angelina Jolie’s decision to undergo a preventative double mastectomy a “brave choice”…
“I’ve been cancer free for nine years now and looking back, I completely understand why I got cancer,” Etheridge told the Washington Blade. “There was so much acidity in everything. I really encourage people to go a lot longer and further before coming to that conclusion.”
This isn’t insane at all.
Dmitri Smirnov, a deaf Russian painter, refused permanent residency in Canada because he failed verbal language tests | Canada | News | National Post
In his application, Mr. Smirnov also included results from Canadian Hearing Society tests for his abilities in sign language: 9.2 out of 10 for expressive skills (analogous to “speaking”) and 9 out of 10 for receptive skills (analogous to “listening”).
In November, Mr. Smirnov’s application was refused. An immigration officer was not satisfied he met the official language proficiency requirement.
In democratic Canada, bureaucracy deafs you, bro.
