Quotes of The Day

Quote I

I like coffee because it gives me the illusion that I might be awake. -Lewis Black

Quote II

I never drink coffee at lunch. I find it keeps me awake for the afternoon.-Ronald Reagan

Quote III

We want to do a lot of stuff; we're not in great shape. We didn't get a good night's sleep. We're a little depressed. Coffee solves all these problems in one delightful little cup.- Jerry Seinfeld


On this day in history, Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, the political and spiritual leader of the Indian independence movement, is assassinated in New Delhi by a Hindu fanatic.


Relations between Pakistan and India remain tense.

NEW DELHI: (Daily Dunya) – India has on Tuesday made a shocking claim saying that Pakistan secret agency was sending ‘suicide dogs’ to their country, reported Daily Dunya.

Indian media claimed it had learned from security sources that Pakistan was sending suicide dogs to India for operations in India.

Why the Religion of Pieces (TM) uses innocent children and doggehs for their horrendous acts of cowardice are beyond me.


The rise and fall of Mexican Drug Lord, El Chapo

U.S. prosecutors have filed a memorandum detailing the lengthy criminal career of recently extradited Mexico drug lord Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán, a unique look at the case the U.S. government is preparing against the man dubbed “the most notorious drug trafficker in the world.”
Following El Chapo’s long-awaited extradition to the United States on Jan. 19, 2017, prosecutors from the Eastern District of New York released a memorandum documenting his stunning transformation from the child of poor Mexican farmers to a drug trafficker with enough money and power to crack Forbes’ list of the world’s richest people.

Has Harvard University physicist Isaac Silvera turned Hydrogen into metal?

That excitement swirled because by squeezing hydrogen to pressures well beyond those in the center of Earth, Silvera and his postdoc Ranga Dias had seen a hint that it had morphed into a solid metal, capable of conducting electricity. "If it's true it would be fantastic," says Reinhard Boehler, a physicist at the Carnegie Institution for Science in Washington, D.C. "This is something we as a community have been pushing to see for decades."

The feat, reported online this week in Science, is more than an oddity. Solid metallic hydrogen is thought to be a superconductor, able to conduct electricity without resistance. It may even be metastable, meaning that like diamond, also formed at high pressures, the metallic hydrogen would maintain its state—and even its superconductivity—once brought back to room temperatures and pressures.


SMFH. What the hell is wrong with people? Don't go through a drive through if you have a bad attitude or appear to have one.


Laura Kipnis is an interesting person. From exploring Title IX to narcissism she covers it in a fascinating way.

Basically, narcissism is the new herpes. It’s not like you got it on purpose, you were just in the wrong place at the wrong time, and now everyone’s pointing fingers and trying to pretend they don’t have it, too. Hence the blame game. You’re so self-involved. Can you think of anything but your self? What’s that horrible smell? It’s you.
Obviously no one wants to think of himself as a ‘social type’, let alone a narcissist. It would be injurious to our narcissistic desire for uniqueness. ‘You’re so typical’, I say to my husband, which should be uncontroversial, since who isn’t typical? Trust him to find something to get peeved about in that, too. His entire being feels constantly under siege: he’s a warrior defending valuable territory and I’m the opposing forces marching up the hill.
