How Half Of America Lost Its F**king Mind

The rural folk with the Trump signs in their yards say their way of life is dying, and you smirk and say what they really mean is that blacks and gays are finally getting equal rights and they hate it. But I’m telling you, they say their way of life is dying because their way of life is dying. It’s not their imagination. No movie about the future portrays it as being full of traditional families, hunters, and coal mines. Well, except for Hunger Games, and that was depicted as an apocalypse.

A Saudi prince has been executed for shooting a man dead during a mass brawl three years ago outside Riyadh. Prince Turki bin Saud al-Kabir was put to death in the capital. No details were given as to how he was executed – most condemned people are beheaded.

Condoleezza Rice Had the Perfect Response to Trump Reportedly Calling Her a ‘B*tch’

According to the Daily News, Trump — who had his differences with the Bush administration — “fired off” on Rice during a keynote speech at the Learning Annex Real Estate and Wealth Expo. “Condoleezza Rice, she’s a lovely woman, but I think she’s a bitch,” Trump reportedly said “to wild applause.” “She goes around to other countries and other nations, negotiates with their leaders, comes back and nothing ever happens.”

European Spacecraft May Be Lost on Mars

Even if Schiaparelli did survive the landing, the mission’s time is already running out. Because it was chiefly meant to demonstrate landing technology rather than perform science on the surface, the lander runs solely on chemical batteries that only contain a few days’ worth of power. This would have been enough to operate Schiaparelli’s small suite of instruments to study Mars’s dust storms, atmosphere and electromagnetic field, but not much else.
