Spoiler Post re: #Dune 

The one thing that bothered me about Dune is that they didn't have Paul "give water to the dead."
I suppose they could do it in part 2 (if it picks up immediately after part 1 ends), but I love that scene and its incredibly important, in my opinion.

It drives home the fact that Muad'Dib, the Kwisatz Haderach, is ultimately a lie built on religious manipulation, and Frank Herbert's whole point about leaders and saviors.

The belief that evolution is a qualitative process (in the sense that its successes are "good" in any objective sense) is the reddit atheist's version of intelligent design.

Evolution is an amoral process. The fact that it can result in objectively good things (a prosocial species with a hyper-developed prefrontal cortex, for example), does not mean it always results in good things (that same species having an objectively shitty back and spine and premature young, relative to other mammals).

Vito has said before that he loves attention. He found a fucking great way to get it today, and its making all the right people mad.

Except Rackets. But I don't want them to like each other, he and Vito's... feud(?) is gold-tier Very Online™ content.

Colin Powell goes to hell, the notorious hacker group “reporters” strike in Missouri, S.B.8 moves fast, Zubaydah update, Qualified Immunity, and Judges trading stocks in contravention of the law and established ethics. All that, and more, on this episode!

The HAARP Machine's lyrics aren't always this accurate, but they are always good.

Know-nothing white girls finally stop stanning RBG so goddamn hard challenge (we'll see)

JStark has done more to liberate people globally than just about anyone.
His passing isn't just felt in the deeper corners of the 3D printed firearm community. Its a loss for free people everywhere.
And if I know the community like I think I do, his work will continue.

Witnessed.

-"Why can't Mr. Zubaydah testify?"

"He's being held incommunicado at Guantanamo."

-"Haven't you tried to get him out?"

"There's been a habeas petition pending in Washington for 14 years."

US v. Zubaydah is a very important case, and oral argument just hit the Oyez feed today.
The is using the state secrets doctrine to block discovery regarding torture at a black site in Poland.

I spoke about this in the most recent episode.

Upcoming cases on , , and . Sotomayor on Qualified Immunity. Misattributed police killings. NLP in the Facebook Whistleblower interview. Why did Facebook really go down on the 4th? All that, and much more, on this episode!
