In 2017, a theatrical department theorized that Hillary Clinton lost to Donald Trump because she’s a woman, so they reversed the genders and re-enacted the presidential debates verbatim, including body language and gestures. Afterwards they polled the audience. Male Hillary still lost. Full story here, complete video here.

Imagine If This Were Your Kid Hot Links

Sunday, 24 March 2019

In January of this year, The Washington Post, CNN and others selected and excoriated an innocent 16 year old kid for doing absolutely nothing other than to tolerate loud, racist harassment by leftist adults who appeared at an orchestrated event designed to advance their own political agenda.
Now he’s got a hammer.

Sara Blažević, a student from Swarthmore College said, “Communities all over the world are currently feeling the effects of extreme climate change and environmental injustice. This global crisis will only continue growing unless society’s power-holders throw their weight behind solutions to climate change, instead of remaining complicit with environmental destruction.”

Crosley Field was a wood-framed ballpark stadium, smelled like popcorn, beer and cigars, and I believe it lasted so long due to decades of layers of enamel. It was replaced by Riverfront Stadium in 1970.


Paper Airplanes [via]. In High School I came up with a slow glider similar to the “Water Plane.” I launched one from the balcony of Riverfront Stadium. It dived, then stalled and dumped its payload of confetti (IBM punchcard chads) over the pricey seats below, righted itself and glided slowly into the end-zone for the win. Eventually an usher came by, told me to cut it out because the people below were complaining – those IBM chads were oily…
