Top Headlines
Theresa May's top spy chiefs were briefed on the Steele dossier before Trump was briefed
That headline sounds like it's a big deal, but I don't think it is -- Steele was flooding this dossier to anyone he knew in government, so why wouldn't it trickle up the chain of command in the UK spy agencies? I'm posting it, though, because who knows, maybe it does mean something.
YouTube now "soft-bans" the word "cuck" from comments
Weird that all the words the leftwing doesn't like being called get banned. You can still talk about "xtianists" and white bitches all you want, though!
Trump on Track to Flip the Ninth Circuit by 2020.
"eight of the 16 Democratic appointees are eligible to take senior status, and a ninth soon will be, but there is no particular reason to expect any of them to elect that option." In other words, they'll be replaced.

Linguists Claim That the World "Lox" Remains Unchanged from the Original Proto-Indo-European Word "Lox," Making the Word 8000 Years Old
Well, there is a small change: Lox now means smoked salmon, whereas lox probably just meant plain old salmon 8000 years ago.
From Allen West: Statement Regarding the NRA [CBD]
Seattle's ruling class enacts policies that encourge homeless people to gather in Seattle.
Quality of Life degrades in Seattle.

Seattle's ruling class then hires private security firms so there are no homeless people near THEIR homes.
Take Two on Japanese Capsule Hotels
That last video was interesting, but it was only briefly about capsule hotels, and the "capsule" he rented was a bigger one and not the very small morgue-drawer-like ones that you usually think of when you think of capsule hotels. This video is about the smaller ones. According to that other video, very small capsules are $20 per night and the larger one he had (more like a narrow closet with a bed) are $40. I would guess this is a mid-sized one costing like $30.
This is interesting: A capsule hotel that doesn't actually have capsules, just lounger chairs that lay almost flat like a bed in a big barracks-like room.
Dude, someone help me climb out of this Japanese travel sinkhole. Sleeper car trains!
NOT Forgotten 80's Mystery Click
I think I'm out of obscure songs and besides, a lot of them are pretty crappy and have been forgotten for a reason. So I'm going to start doing not-at-all forgotten 80s Mystery Clicks
First one: Hint: Release date 1979. Genre: AOR rock (specifically, what we might call roots rock now). Lyric sample: "Baby you would bury me"
Hey, since these are definitely not forgotten, the hints have to be more obscure, some of the less-well known lyrics from the song.
Did you get it?
Experts are comically bad at predicting the future. The more they know about their field, the worse they are at predictions in that field.
"When experts declared that future events were impossible or nearly impossible, 15% of them occurred nonetheless.
When they declared events to be a sure thing, more than one-quarter of them failed to transpire."

Pitch Meeting Guy was in advanced screening audience, with kids, for Detective Pikachu. The theater began running trailers for r-rated horror films and then ran the full R-rated ghost movie "La Llorona."
Whoops! Whoopsie!
