    She might lose it if she's trying to get a book deal with anyone with the same model as McDonalds. They once demolished a restaurant where there had been a shooting, gave the land to the city under the condition that no sign ever be put up that made mention of a McDonalds having been on that sight. They maintain their reputation by completely ignoring the truth and just concerning themselves with how something might look, and I can imagine a publishing company would be similarly cautious.

    Yeah, if it's all as it's said in the article, then this is pretty unfair for the author. And I say that as someone who thinks reporting someone for eating on the train is really petty.

    Regardless, this is another example of innocent victims as society shifts away from overt racism. I'd equate it with young men getting falsely accused of sexual assault when doing stupid shit that's taken the wrong way. Stuff like this.

    Shit sucks, but it'll happen. No way to stop it.

    Yeah I'm going to miss the right to take the piss out of America after we reelected a mob of scandal ridden, shady deal making, question avoiding, climate denying, hypocritical coal fetishists.

    I don't know if this was released before, but NASA is preparing to build a permanent outpost on the moon.
    While I found the video itself a tad cliche, this is amazing news!

    edit:
    Just saw it was posted 4 days ago, so probably old news - still awesome

    That SpaceX video of the Falcon 9 landing remains the best space hype video ever, but this comes close.

    If all Trump's space force does is get people excited about space exploration and nasa funding...i'm okay with it.

    Niki Lauda has died. Man's been a feature of Formula 1 for the better part of 50 years; it's going to be weird not seeing him in the paddock.

    That particular bit of news hit me hard today. Niki was, in the best sense of the word, part of the inventory of the Formula 1 paddock. Often controversial, but always passionate, heartfelt and never without a twinkle in his eye. Even in recent years, he was instrumental to Mercedes‘ success as a non-executive chairman to the team, making a fantastic duo with team principal and fellow Austrian Toto Wolff.

    German tv station RTL (where he was a pundit for over 20 years) and Austria‘s ORF have changed their scheduled programming tonight in his honour. What a legend.
