​Scientist Explains The Hulk And Captain America

Most superheroes aren't scientifically accurate. That said, that doesn't mean that we can't let a biologist try to speculate how they might work in the real world.

Damn, This Super Smash Bros. 3DS XL Is Hot

Nintendo announced this baby for Europe on October 3, when the new Smash Bros. launches on 3DS. I hope it comes to the U.S. too. Very sleek. Cluttered, but sleek. (Hard to beat my black/gold Zelda XL though.)

Rula Jebreal Takes On Breitbot Ben Shapiro Over Middle East Conflict

Rula Jebreal Takes On Breitbot Ben Shapiro Over Middle East Conflict

Rula Jebreal has done more in the time since MSNBC cut her loose to present an alternative reality to the usual "Israel can do no wrong" claptrap than she ever would have if she had stayed. In this segment, she takes on Breitbot Ben Shapiro and does not cut him even a millimeter of slack.

TPM:

When it was Jebreal's turn to speak, she immediately highlighted Shapiro's penchant for the incendiary.

"Well, I think Ben is not really in a position to lecture us about extremism, especially after what he said about President Obama, when he called him Jew-hater, when he called him anti-Semitic and when he called for the expulsion of Arabs in the West Bank and Gaza, and Arab-Israelis like myself, as a solution," Jebreal said.

Jebreal said it's telling that Shapiro is too much for The Atlantic's Jeffrey Goldberg.

"You know, it's so hard to listen to somebody that even Jeffrey Goldberg called a fascist," Jebreal said.

One of the more interesting moments in the debate was when they turned to the question of false equivalencies. From the transcript:

9 Fun DIY Projects for Backyard Movie Nights

by Lauren Hufnagl

I don't know about you, but I'd say that we see our friends and family about 100 times more in the summer than we do in the colder months of the year. There's something about warm weather and the freedom to go outdoors that brings people together. It's a time to foster community and friendship, to break bread and build relationships. And really for us, summer is one of the few times of the year that we can entertain at home, as our house isn't exactly sized for large groups of people. I've been thinking about hosting an outdoor movie night, and I want to make it fun but on a budget. Here are nine DIY ideas that I've come up with for just such a fete:

Even Portal Turrets Like Game of Thrones

by Nathan Grayson on TMI, shared by Kirk Hamilton to Kotaku

How do the infamously talkative turrets from Valve's puzzle phenom Portal express their love of Game of Thrones? Why, through song, of course. Glorious harmonies, soaring shotgun blasts of sound. And ineffectual wiggling. I want to see Companion Cubes next.

The Beautiful Process of Turning Quartz Into Lab Glass at 3,000 Degrees

If you work in a lab, you've probably used lab glass made from quartz. But you probably haven't realized that the reason those test tubes are so durable is exactly what makes them so hard to mold.

Justice Ginsburg Writes Blistering Dissent On Hobby Lobby

by Susie Madrak
chapinc

NOTORIOUS R.B.G.

Justice Ginsburg Writes Blistering Dissent On Hobby Lobby

Justice Ginsburg has some problems with the Hobby Lobby 5-4 decision. Some excerpts from her dissent via Mother Jones:

  • "Religious organizations exist to foster the interests of persons subscribing to the same religious faith. Not so of for-profit corporations. Workers who sustain the operations of those corporations commonly are not drawn from one religious community."
  • "Any decision to use contraceptives made by a woman covered under Hobby Lobby’s or Conestoga’s plan will not be propelled by the Government, it will be the woman’s autonomous choice, informed by the physician she consults."
  • "It bears note in this regard that the cost of an IUD is nearly equivalent to a month’s full-time pay for workers earning the minimum wage."
  • "Approving some religious claims while deeming others unworthy of accommodation could be 'perceived as favoring one religion over another,' the very 'risk the [Constitution's] Establishment Clause was designed to preclude."
