5 Things to Stop Doing in Your 20s
I'd include video gaming, or at least decrease it to less than 5 hours per week. Get out, live big, stop screwing around, your life is quickly getting to the point it needs to be serious.
Start doing: Men need to decide by 25 or so, the course his life will take over the next 50. Sorry, that's how it works. Don't do a Per (a friend age 50 who failed to take action), play video games and wake up 50 with nothing but video gaming, 20s like Big Bang friendships and no woman, unless you are gay. Life after 50 without a life partner and children will be pretty bleak. You will be the oldest child at the children's table for family dinners.
You don't have till 50 to figure this out, you have till about 25, maybe 26 then things will have to happen, or you will end up 50 unmarried without children ... Per. Don't do that to yourself.
Harvey Weinstein Is in Treatment — but Defiant Mogul Is ‘Not Listening to Anyone,’ Says Source
Harvey Weinstein doesn’t seem to be taking sex rehab seriously
"There is something deeply worrisome about this kind of flattening process, both for what it says about those who never spoke up until now and for what it says about our inability to grasp the complexity of the human condition. We wonder about trolling on the internet, but our press encourages this in its tabloid-style piling on of reporting—in its inability to contextualize or restrain itself in the face of the public appetite for more of the same."
Why millennials are ditching religion for witchcraft and astrology
Someone doesn't have a good handle on what the Millennials are doing. The working definition of religion is any partial or whole worldview based in whole or part in belief or faith. Faith encompasses theistic religion, while belief encompasses non-theistic religion.
Witchcraft and astrology are worldviews which rely on belief (magic of some kind, apparently). By this definition, Global Warming Alarmism is likely a religion for some like Al Gore. He holds global warming as a worldview, and it is based in part on belief. Most of Gore's beliefs in global warming are far wackier than most organized theistic religious dogma. Gore is so lightly tethered to reality that his beliefs are tough to take for the sane, and those with a modest understanding of science.
Tesla’s New Car Smell – Monday Note
"My first serious doubts about Tesla didn’t stem from missed schedules, I’ve been guilty of too many of these, they’re part of tech life. What seriously worried me was a July 2016 visit to Tesla’s manufacturing plant in Fremont, California. In taking delivery of my wife’s Model S, we were treated to a group tour of the site. Everyone marveled at the robot porn, at the activity on the assembly line, at the endless stores of spare parts piled to the ceiling.
Everyone but yours truly.
I couldn’t help check off the sins against the “Toyota Bible”, prescriptions for car manufacturers that are lucidly detailed in The Machine That Changed The World (a great and, in parts, sad read). In particular, one mustn’t stockpile parts on the floor, they must be fed in small quantities at small time intervals. If a part has a problem, only a small quantity needs to be shipped back to the supplier who can inspect, correct, and quickly adjust their own production process.
As I watched Tesla’s messy, hiccuping line, with workers dashing in to fix faulty parts in place, my mind travelled back to the Honda plant I had visited years ago in Marysville, Ohio. Clean, calm, everything moved smoothly. I was so shocked by the contrast that I imprudently voiced my concern. That didn’t go over well with my fellow Tesla owners. I was a killjoy, I was calling their choice into question."
Musk and Tesla are all about extracting money from government, nothing else. The car company is the Macguffin necessary to support the scam.

Woman who falsely accused soldier of rape is jailed for five years
This woman falsely accused a man of a severe crime, and suffers a serious criminal repercussion when convicted. This is equal treatment in its most basic form. Here in the US, we oft see this behavior treated as merely a lark not serious criminality. However, the men falsely accused are seriously injured and could potentially suffer a terrible consequence for this "lark." These cases need to be treated as serious and the women falsely accusing these men need to be dealt with harshly if convicted.
Fifth-grader skips recess to play classical music for first-graders
Nathan Zhang "... from California is on a mission to improve the lunch experience of first-graders at his school by playing music for his classmates.
Fifth grader Nathan Zhang has been playing piano since he was five, and has become an internet sensation after his school district posted a video of him gracing the cafeteria at Theodore Judah Elementary School in Folsom with his musical talent.
The piano virtuoso chooses to stay inside as his class goes outside for recess, and plays classical music for first-graders while they eat lunch."
What's next At Folsom Prison? It would seem to be a logical step.

Iowa man 'kills mother by hitting her with an electric GUITAR'
Garret Selters charged with first-degree murder for killing his mother
"Linda stated Garret was being aggressive towards her, not listening to her and was having an ‘episode,‘” court documents state. “She further explained (to 911 dispatchers) that Garret suffers from schizophrenia and she needed officers’ help dealing with him.”
When officers arrived minutes later, they met Garret Selters in the front yard of the home.
“He was highly upset and was pacing back and forth,” court documents state. “He spontaneously stated (multiple times) that ‘I just killed my mom.’ He also advised police that he had been hearing voices telling him to kill his mother.”
