Press Secretary Sean Spicer had a tough day today. If you listen to the feckless mainstream media, he ran from the White House press corps this afternoon in order to avoid questions about bizarre interviews Trump has been giving. But, if you listen to the #russiagate sleuths, he ran because the lid had been blown off…
The Autonomous Space Agency Network (ASAN), an independent advocate of DIY space exploration, has a message for Donald Trump and they’ve launched a weather balloon into the stratosphere to send it: “@realDonaldTrump LOOK AT THAT, YOU SON OF A BITCH.” It’s honestly not as confrontational as it seems at first glance.
We’re officially through the looking glass and it’s time to find out what powers our country’s legal system has over the President. One day after his inauguration, Donald Trump has already fucked up a tweet and deleted it. The problem is that he very likely isn’t allowed to do that anymore.
Former presidential candidate Bernie Sanders came to work Wednesday to debate the repealing of Obamacare—one of Donald Trump's top priorities—armed with a giant printout of one of the president-elect's tweets, Gizmodo reports.
Back in May, Donald Trump tweeted about being one of the only Republican presidential candidates to promise not to cut Medicare and Medicaid. Now, to fulfill the president-elect's vow to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act, some members of the GOP have proposed getting rid of those programs.
Sanders apparently saw the irony in that and decided to take it to the Senate floor, illustrating the healthcare flip-flop by printing out Trump's former campaign promise onto a big-ass poster board.
Sanders explained that Republicans "want to cut Social Security. They want to cut Medicare. They want to cut Medicaid. Mr. Trump was right, and millions of people voted for him on the believe that he would keep his word." He added, "If all that he was talking about was campaign rhetoric, then what he was obliged to do is to tell the American people, 'I was lying.'"
Sanders's extra-credit project even reportedly got a laugh from Ted Cruz, according to the Vermont senator's deputy communications director, Mike Casca.
An odd thing occurred on the FBI’s Record Vault Twitter account on October 31st, drawing conspiracy theorists out of the woodwork.

Now, the FBI has launched an internal review to determine how its procedures went wrong.
FireEye is a huge security company with high profile clients like Sony Pictures. But the company’s success hasn’t stopped it from doing dumb things to grab attention. For instance, sending out a sales pitch that likens the deady Hurricane Matthew with a cyber attack is a dumb thing to do.
Making aliens look cute is a tricky thing to get right in kids’ entertainment. Make them too weird-looking, and you could freak out your audience. Make them too adorable, and you run the risk of them looking more like plush toys than creatures from another planet. And then sometimes you make them look cute... but forget to prevent them from acting like hideous, depraved monsters.
Satellites such as the Kepler have been working overtime to uncover hundreds of new planets in our galaxy. But how did we first discover the planets in our local volume of space? Here are the stories of how astronomers living hundreds of years ago discovered each planet in our solar system.
