Trump to Use ‘Nuclear Option’ to Recover $2.5 Bn More from California’s Failed High-Speed Rail Project
The Trump administration announced this week that it was canceling nearly $1 billion in grant money for California’s now-defunct high-speed rail project — and President Donald Trump is coming for the other $2.5 billion. The $2.5 billion has already been spent — but California has failed to deliver the high-speed rail (on time, or at all) as promised. Therefore, the Trump administration argues, the state has to repay federal taxpayers. [CBD]

An Oral History of Office Space, 20 Years After Its (Failed) Theatrical Release
Twenty years! My goodness. By the way, even though it bombed at the box office, it did eventually start making money on DVDs and through frequent TV airings.
In case I misled anyone: Although I find The Snake Juice Guy funny, he's not really my life coach or anything. I just stumbled across him last year when I was watching videos about fasting. I just think it's funny that a guy gets 80,000 subscribers by shouting "HEY FATTIE!!!" into the camera before every video and insulting people into better health (maybe). I guess I appreciate his directness and his tough love attitude towards his subscribers, minus the love.
Forgotten 80s Aughts Mystery Click
Hint: Treadmills!
They released a video in 2016 in keeping with their aesthetic of doing an exciting one-take live performance: This one in one of of those Vomit Comet type zero g simulating planes. They claim this is all real. I kind of believe them because they don't fake things but can you really do that much in one take? I suspect they might have recorded their performance at a sped-up pace and then slowed it down in replay in order to extend the zero-g sections.
Wait: I think my reasons for being suspicious are ill-founded. Hollywood can only do these in short 3-second takes because they're usually trying to pretend the temporary zero-g of the Vomit Comet is the permanent micgrogravity of space, and there's only zero g when the plane hits the top of a climb. Then normal gravity returns, and Hollywood can't use that footage as it would give away the trick that they're not in a space capsule but just in a fast moving plane. But the OK GO guys aren't trying to pretend this is anything other than a plane going into very steep climbs and then into brief periods where upward acceleration equals downward acceleration, so they can use all of the footage, including the parts where gravity is plainly back in operation. They just do their zero-g stunts when the plane gets back to the top of a climb, then stand normally when the plane isn't in temporary weightlessness.
Boy do these guys like single-take concepts
Emotional Labor: It's 2019 and Gay People Are Still Being Forced to Attack Themselves in the Streets
In the actual year 2019 that Trump has created, gay people are still being forced to attack themselves in the streets. Gay people, especially black gay people, have been so brainwashed by the messaging of Trump's America that they are now hiring people to oppress them right out in the open.

This isn't some third-world country where this is happening. This isn't in some dystopian young adult fiction, where I get most of my political ideas.
Cuckshed Weekly Editor Seth Mandel Virtue Signals His Little Soy-Filled Heart Out: "Jussie Smollett royally messed up, in what's beginning to look more like a cry for help than anything else. I don't see how sending him to prison accomplishes that so I hope it doesn’t reach that point."
Why is the "conservative" media pond stocked with nothing but liberal fish? You'd almost think the "conservative" media is in fact a parallel liberal media which only hires those they know are liberal.
"He's like a Bad Take Factory," a friend said of his other NeverTrump Virtue Signaling. Hey dude, get the fuck off twitter and pay attention to your wife so she doesn't have to offer yearning, thirsty shout-outs to her ex-boyfriend on your podcast.
Update: This is embarrassing. Even Mandel's "wife" is disgusted by his soy-sodden leftwing virtue signalling. No wonder she's giving pining long-distance dedications to an ex-boyfriend on their shared podcast.
A friend jokes: "Must be odd for him for his wife to watch him get dogpiled, rather than vice versa."
Weezer Covers A-Ha's "Take On Me"
I guess it's okay but it's not very different from the original. Seems pretty pointless. Also, I don't like this song, so maybe I'm not the best audience.
A-Ha's unplugged version of the song from 2017 might be more interesting.
