Sadly with the three month old passing away there are five now dead. Such a waste.

This arrived in the post - a calendar glorifying and celebrating the United States prison system.
Each month features a heavily-pixelated Google maps aerial snapshot of a different major prison.

This year, get one for the person you love.

Been tuned into the live feed of the march in Washington and in 59 other countries for most of the day. Currently watching the culmination of the march surrounding Trump Tower.

Reportedly as many as 600,000 in Washington, 200,000 in NYC, up to 750,000 in LA, (its largest in over a decade), and 100,000 in London... nearly 700 marches worldwide from Antarctica to Australia totaling an estimated 2.5 million people.

The most impactful element of these protests is their commitment to unity and solidarity - joining the forces of institutionally-oppressed minorities - blacks, Hispanics, Muslims, immigrants, women, the elderly, the disabled... everyone who this administration has sworn to oppress and made it their mission to divide. That is their greatest strength and it gives me hope.

Also: Sir Ian McKellen at the Women's Rally holding a Picard meme sign.

How many people actually live between Antarctica and Australia?

A reasonable question. However, the significance isn't the numbers in these regions, but rather that support and participation for this globally-unifying cause has reached such remote locales as Antarctica and Australia.

Perhaps you were being facetious, but regardless I felt compelled to respond.

As far as numbers - another noteworthy city would be Portland, OR with a participatory figure of 100,000 protestors.

But who's marching between Antarctica and Australia? Tasmanians?

Bristol cops use Taser on their race relations adviser - NY Daily News

I guess he isn't doing such a good job at race relations.

In the US he would have died most likely.

WHAT THE HELL IS THIS GARBAGE?!



Ultra-portable "intelligent" turntable named "LOVE" lets you control record playback from your smartphone.

And it's all downhill from there. Watch their official demo video and try not to stab your monitor.
