It's only February, but this has got to be a strong contender for story of the year
"'Teenager who went to bed with a headache, fell into a coma and woke up four days later to discover she had unknowingly given BIRTH to a surprise baby. . . .
"The college student - who studies Sports Physiotherapy - hadn't developed a bump, experienced no morning sickness and had not missed a period.'"
Well, that's bracing. Without reading more, I guessed, "Mary."
The freshman 15 strikes again!
Who’d a-thunk it? The NYC minimum wage hike to $15 an hour is causing pain for many of the city’s restaurants?
I am sure the people earning the minimum wage who are now jobless enjoy the new wages Fight for $15 wages won! Oh, right, they didn't win the $15 per hour lottery, they lost.
This will add to the city's tax woes. But then these are the wages of allowing progressives to run your city or state. Dear New Yorkers, enjoy the decline, you voted for these idiotic policies.

The parting gift this time is not a new car, boat, or home, the parting gift is a death sentence for Treason! Or maybe something less if you make it easy for the feds. Just saying.

European Meltdown Over Pence's Scolding
The Europeans became something like unrelated children living in America's basement, kvetching about how we are such meanies because we don't listen to their every word of advice.
Advice? From Europeans who cannot go more than a few decades without sparking a near world-ending war? No. And now they want us to continue to protect them, so they don't go bankrupt via their excessive welfare state and medical care spending? No.
After WWII, the Europeans decided to allow America to send them freight carloads of money to rebuild their shattered economies. That allowed the Europeans to rebuild to state of the art standards. America then protected them from the Soviet Bear and all other comers. In response, the Europeans cut their militaries and larded up on nationalized medical benefits, and an extensive welfare state. None of this would have been possible if they had acted like adults and taken their share of the military protection costs. But too many Europeans are anything but mature or responsible.
Pence was right, grow up, take responsibility for yourselves, and start acting like adults. Let us know when you get there, and we will start treating you like adults. But don't even try to fake it until you make it, we are tired of your childish antics and whinging!
Self-Driving Cars Might Kill Auto Insurance as We Know It
This is an incredibly valuable contribution both from the loss of life and injury standpoint and from a cost perspective.
There is a realistic possibility that per mile auto costs could drop to long haul flight cost level which are far below public transit per mile costs!
Cost reductions like this and the fact that engine size will shrink dramatically, all bode well for self-drive cars being far less costly to operate on a per mile basis which means far lower transportation costs, and ultimately this will kill public transit since it will not be able to compete on costs alone let alone pollution, and carbon. I read that as win/win/win!

If you disagree with them, they will eventually come for you; they always do under the Niemoller Rule!
"First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a socialist.
Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a trade unionist.
Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out--
Because I was not a Jew.
Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me."
