quote [ The Australian government plans to crack down on the ‘black economy’ by implanting $100 and $50 note ]

Wonder what type of nano chips?

Would it be passive or active tracking?

Would active tracking violate any privacy rights or have they gone out the window?

The 80-year-old lawmaker has glioblastoma, an aggressive cancer, according to doctors at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, where McCain had a blood clot removed from above his left eye last Friday. ]

High-Ranking Republican Asks NASA Bizarre Question About Martians Live On TV

quote [ America’s House Committee on Science, Space, and Technology is, to put it politely, a joke.
The Republican-dominated chamber is lacking in actual scientists, full of climate change deniers, and it regularly shares Breitbart articles on its Trump apologist-themed Twitter feed of falsehoods. Despite being able to direct the country’s science policy, it is about as scientifically knowledgeable as a dog.

One of the high-ranking members of this committee, Dana Rohrabacher, has said some truly remarkable things in the past, but he’s just outdone himself. During a panel with several space science experts, including those from NASA, he asked: “Is it possible that there was a civilization on Mars thousands of years ago?” ]

Surgery Is One Hell Of A Placebo

quote [ Studies have shown that invasive procedures produce a stronger placebo effect than non-invasive ones, said researcher Jonas Bloch Thorlund of the University of Southern Denmark. A pill can provoke a placebo effect, but an injection produces an even stronger one. Cutting into someone appears to be more powerful still. ]

I have experience with certain medications that may or may not have actually done anything positive, but I figured it was worth it for the placebo effect. Surgery, however, is a bit farther than I'm willing to go.

The shit just hit the fan.

quote [ “Sessions should have never recused himself, and if he was going to recuse himself, he should have told me before he took the job and I would have picked somebody else,” Mr. Trump said. ]

If we have any expectations about an independent judiciary somebody has to take a stand and push back hard. If Jeff Sessions Has any self respect he resigns tonight. I wonder how Trump thought Sessions would know he was going to fire Commey?
