Oh Look Who's Mr. Bombypants Now Open Thread: French, Other Europeans, Arabs Demand The US Bomb Syria

Life is far too ridiculous to even bother to explain.

European and Arab nations joined Tuesday to condemn Syrian dictator Bashar Assad for gassing his own people as the United States pondered possible military action in its first direct intervention in the Syrian civil war.

France, the United Kingdom and the Arab League said Syria must be held responsible for the attack.

"France is ready to punish those who took the decision to gas the innocent," French President Francois Hollande told a meeting in Paris of French ambassadors.

Yes, France is ready to punish them by ordering Americans to punish them.

As they say, France is willing to fight this war until the last American standing.

Another racecrime hoax. Why you'd almost think there was some sort of disproportionate advantage that society confers on racecrime reporters to make people think it's even worth it to commit serious fraud to do so.

A teacher has gotten 15 years for raping a student who then committed suicide.

Did I say 15 years? I meant 31 days. The judge suspended the sentence, entirely, except for a month's sentence.

Infuriating. Monstrous.


Lady Gaga, who I don't care for, is having a huge Best Friend Breakup with Perez Hilton, whom I actively dislike.

I don't care about this either. Might as well link it as I close the tab though.

MTV's Kennedy continues to be provocative and partly nude.


Obama's NSA scandal is hurting the US tech industry. Big companies that offer cloud storage are losing market share, because buyers have concerns that data stored there is basically subject to US government intrusion at any time. And they have those concerns because data stored there is basically subject to US government intrusion at any time.

And this is not peanuts we're talking about, either:

Translated into hard dollar amounts, another report this month from the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation (ITIF) said US cloud providers stand to lose $22-$35 billion over the next three years because of the publicity surrounding the PRISM program.

Is this a surprise? Thanks to @rdbrewer4 in the sidebar, the brains of introverts are better, I mean different, than those of extroverts.

[A] 2012 study by Harvard psychologist Randy Buckner found that people who identify as introverts tend to have larger and thicker gray matter in certain areas of the prefrontal cortex, a highly complex brain region associated with abstract thought and decision-making. People who identify as strongly extroverted, on the other hand, tend to have thinner gray matter in those same prefrontal areas—which hints that introverts tend to devote more neural resources to abstract pondering, while extroverts tend to live in the moment.

Yeah I didn't see that coming.

And here now an adorable puppy being gently woken up. And then he starts yapping, but it's good yapping, not like Woman Yapping.

Now everyone just Shuddup so I can hear myself thinking about misogyny and Schopenhauer.
