Awww, you tried so hard, but unfortunately I can’t hear you over the sound of my debt-free college degree and massive disposable income.
The only thing sad I see in this whole post is some weak twit who isn’t brave enough to take responsibility for their words but instead attacks another adult anonymously for her choices because they don’t want to have to deal with repercussions for their words.
no prison can hold me!
Kenguru is a tiny electric hatchback for wheelchair users
By Ellis Hamburger, theverge.com
Kenguru’s electric car has no seats, and you drive it by putting your hands on motorcycle-style handlebars. It’s built for wheelchair users, who can roll right through the rear hatch of the car into the driver’s area. The Austin-based…
THIS IS SO COOL.
THIS is neat!
GOP House Candidate Jim Hagedorn, Asshole of the Day for August 22, 2014
Jim Hagedorn was the surprise winner of this week’s GOP primary in Minnesota District 1, but Mother Jones reports today that he brings some “serious baggage” into his race against-4-term Democratic incumbent Tim Walz.
Citing posts from his now-scrubbed “Mr. Conservative” blog originally unearthed by Bluestem Prairie, Mother Jones reports:
Hagedorn made light of American Indians, President Obama’s Kenyan ancestry, and female Supreme Court justices, among others, in ways many voters won’t appreciate… (and) these were not mere juvenile ramblings, either: Hagedorn was a Treasury Department official at the time.
Hagedorn also reveled in anti-gay innuendo while telling his readers he thought “Caribou Barbie” Sarah Palin was “HOT!”
At the same time:
Not all female politicians were viewed as favorably. In a 2002 post, Hagedorn referred to Washington Democratic Sens. Maria Cantwell and Patty Murray as “undeserving bimbos in tennis shoes.” Former Bush White House counsel Harriet Miers, he wrote in 2005, had been nominated “to fill the bra of Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day O’Connor.”
Heading into a midterm election season in which the GOP is already struggling to convince women, minorities and the LGBT community that it isn’t really as misogynistic, racist and bigoted as it used to be, nominating this asshole isn’t likely to help.
This is Jim Hagedorn’s first time as Asshole of the Day.

i had a really good joke but autocorrect ruined the lunchtime
I am not even joking. What is going on here?
The police officer who shot Michael Brown apparently did not file an incident report when the shooting occurred. The only report anywhere on record is this one, which states the date entered as 8/19/14- ten days after the shooting occurred.
I would be written up and in danger of losing my job if I failed to write an incident report for a scraped toe and I work at a community pool.
If I, a 16-year-old, could potentially be out of a job for not writing a report for a minor injury fixed with a band-aid, then Officer Darren Wilson, an adult, should definitely be fired for skipping out on it after literally killing a teenager. He should not be on PAID LEAVE.
Chefchaouen, a small town in northern Morocco, has a rich history, beautiful natural surroundings and wonderful architecture, but what it’s most famous for are the striking and vivid blue walls of many of the buildings in its “old town” sector, or medina.
The maze-like medina sector, like those of most of the other towns in the area, features white-washed buildings with a fusion of Spanish and Moorish architecture. The brilliantly blue walls, however, seem to be unique to Chefchaouen. They are said to have been introduced to the town by Jewish refugees in 1930, who considered blue to symbolize the sky and heaven. The color caught on, and now many also believe that the blue walls serve to repel mosquitoes as well (mosquitoes dislike clear and moving water).
Whatever the reason, the town’s blue walls attract visitors who love to wander the town’s narrow streets and snap some beautiful photos.
Reminds me of this from Cowboy Bebop: Knocking on Heaven’s Door, but, y’know, in blue.
