Could Sexual Frustration Lead To A Shorter Life?

Atheists sink to new depths of depravity! — It’s amazing how immoral the irreligious are without the external threat of eternal punishment to keep us in line. After all, no human being could possibly be a moral actor without an invisible friend threatening their very lives and souls. (Via Scrivener’s Error.)

The real cultists are not Maoists, they're CEOsIt is not only in religious or political circumstances where people are made to follow a leader unthinkingly. Ah, yes. The sociopath in the corner office. (Via Scrivener’s Error.)

The chalice that helped make possible the Iran nuclear dealIn gesture of goodwill that helped lead to talks, the U.S. presented a gift to Iran: a silver chalice in the shape of a griffin that is thought to be an antiquity looted from an Iranian cave. (Via David Goldman.)

Off Siberia’s Arctic coast, the seafloor belches methaneAnd it's belching more than we had thought it was. Another climate change artifact.

Rooting for FailureFor the entirety of the Obama era, Republicans have consistently been cheerleaders for failure. They rooted for the economic recovery to sputter, for gas prices to spike, the job market to crater, the rescue of the American automobile industry to fall apart. I get it. This organized schadenfreude goes back to the dawn of Obama’s presidency, when Rush Limbaugh, later joined by Senator Mitch McConnell, said their No. 1 goal was for the president to fail. A CNN poll in 2010 found 61 percent of Republicans hoping Obama would fail (versus only 27 percent among all Americans). Now that’s patriotism, conservative values distilled in the best interests of the country consistent with the GOP’s unswerving commitment to the American people. Are you proud of your Republican party?

Yet nevertheless foiling the warmongers' attempts to slip Iran the pellet with the poison.
