@AndyBCampbell: NEW: Leaked Identity Evropa chats reveal that white nationalists have actively worked phones in support of Rep. Steve King, and donated to his reelection campaign, as part of ongoing efforts to keep a white supremacist in power
Tell me again how Ilhan Omar using a couple of badly chosen phrases is the real problem, though.
From That Other Place...
@TechnicallyRon: England: "White background, Red cross"
Scotland: "Blue background, white x"
*Wales giggling wildly in the corner*
England: "Wales what's your flag"
Wales: "MASSIVE. FUCKING. DRAGON."
Me: MASSIVE. FUCKING. DRAGON. would be the name of my Welsh Imagine Dragons tribute band.
Well, except for the fact that they suck too much to have a tribute band.
It's a shame that these researchers had to spend time doing this instead of solving real problems, but that's what happens when you're in the stupidest timeline.
I iz floof.
I fitz in crate.
This is interesting in light of the HQ2/NYC saga: Amazon threatened not to move into Ranier Square if Seattle passed a business tax intended to help build low-income housing and the homeless.
The city backed down. Now Amazon is...not moving in to Ranier Square.
Tonight’s #brewandwho - A cherry ale from Ommegang, which is practically local. And The Waters of Mars.
imagining a world in which spelling bees aren't competitions about memorization and rules but gatherings where people work together to craft new spellings from scratch for words that haven't been spelled yet (or don't even exist yet), invent alternate and better/weirder spellings than those that words already have, think of new systems for spelling that don't even involve letters or characters or writing at all
@mike_jones That was a fun episode. Michelle Ryan was a very good foil for the Doctor, and I kin of wish they had brought her back as a companion. I could just see the bus flying down into the middle of things.
Tonight’s #BrewAndWho: a winter warmer from Flying Dog and the Tennant season 4 Easter special, Planet of the Dead.
Went to the beer store today. New #BrewAndWho coming later.
I was about to start my machine when a man suddenly appeared in the lab.
"I come from the future," he said.
More people appeared as he spoke.
"Are you here to stop me?" I asked.
"No, to witness."
Proud, I turned back to my machine, then heard a whisper:
"This bit is hilarious!"

So now that #AOC has proven that she's not at all "dumb", the right wingers have moved on to claiming that people behind the scenes are writing everything for her including, apparently, near-real-time Twitter responses.
I've seen enough claims of that on Twitter in the last 24 hours that i have to wonder: who gave them that idea?
Finally getting to watching New Who.
Tonight in #BrewAndWho: S4ep15, The Next Doctor and a bourbon barrel aged version of an old favorite.
Ben Shapiro is the intellectual grease fire of modern conservatism.
Harper to the Phillies, 13y/$330M. Full no-trade clause and no opt-out.
My take: Probably a good deal for the Phils. They're basically paying for 3.1 WAR/season for 13 years. For the first 7 seasons, Harper has averaged a little over 5.
He'll be a bargain for the Phils for the first half of the contract, overpaid for the second, but a good deal overall.
*Assuming* his career isn't severely limited by injury.
