Frequently Unasked Question: Why is Washington, DC Called That? Why Not Just "Washington" or "District of Columbia," given that the two names are precisely synonomous?
Brief answer: Because they weren't always precisely synonomous; earlier, the City of Washington was one of five municipalities in the District of Columbia, but some of the original territory was ceded back to the state that earlier ceded it to DC, and "Washington" eventually became the only municipal government in the District. "Washington, DC" is therefore a vestigial redundancy.
Bucking General Trend That Mega-Sized Animals Existed Earlier and Leave Behind Smaller Progeny, Whales Went from Dolphin-Sized to Behemoth-Sized in Past 2-3 Million Years
Apparently it was the evolution of a baleen feeding system (you know, where the whale (or whale shark) just cruises through water sweeping up plankton into its mouth) that permitted the giganticization, as this method of feeding offers a lot of calories in for relatively little calories out
Update: Baleen whales have now been granted immunity to any murders involving oral sex and strangulation

From "The Political Hat," San Francisco No Longer Belongs to Americans "Citizenship is an indicator of being a full-fledged member of a people and a civilization, with the right to participate in how it is run and in what direction its government shall take. It is not only a compendium of a dwindling set of rights, but a duty, obligation, and honor. What, then, does citizenship mean when foreign nationals, particularly those who are illegally in this country and hold no legiance thereto, can out-vote actual citizens in determining our very governance?"

Another Large-Scale Cyberattack Underway
If I understand this one -- and I'm not at all sure I do -- this is bigger but less malicious, as it turns your computer into a machine to farm Bitcoin-like cybercurrencies. So it seems like they're not blackmailing you or stealing money from you, but rather stealing some of your computer's memory and CPU power while working in background. Still, I'm not thrilled about it. Especially with my computer running strangely hot.
