Today's strip is an example of just how small some people can be. The "authorities" exhibit an ignorance that is appalling, having no knowledge of what molybdenum or krypton are. They are frauds. And they suck at sarcasm.
Now in our world Yuna's device just won't work, but she doesn't live in our world. In her world he device is possible, and does work. Not very well, but it works. Indeed, I can see the technology in her world taking her work, scaling it up, and using it to power things the anti-adults won't admit to.
And notice what the other kid has done, catered to the adults' prejudice. There are some people you just can't trust with a burnt out match.
The word I'm thinking here is "emergency", President Trump had an emergency which required him to go to the hospital. He got checked out and his problem was determined to be non-life threatening. But it is an indication that he is under stress, and that stress is causing him problems. And it's likely to get worse as events proceed.
To sum up, Donald Trump is in trouble, and having experienced what stress can do to one, I'm expecting a big announcement sometime in the near future.
In the case of the impeachment of Donald John Trump we have it. No, not the extortion or any bribery, our grounds for impeachment is obstruction of justice. President Trump has flat out forbidden people to testify before the committee involved in the process. In criminal law when this is done by a party in an investigation said party can be, and will be, charged with obstruction of justice. To make matters worse, he's done it publicly. He's done it right where everybody can see it. In the words of Doonesbury's Mark Slackmayer he is "Guilty! Guilty! Guilty!"
Trump has committed a crime. He has committed a provable crime. A crime for which he can, and most likely would, be convicted of in a court of law. That is an impeachable offense. Even more, it is an offense he can be convicted of in the U.S. Senate by any party with any interest in the probity of our government. He is hoist by his own petard, and the rope is fraying.
You get right down to it, all before it is of no real consequence. Our president in an act of hubris has given us the reason we need to remove him. He has shown that he is an unreliable leader and to be utterly inept. We don't need him and we don't deserve him. And any fact that he's been this way all along only proves we need him out now. So my message is, impeach and convict on the grounds of obstruction of justice. Let's focus on that and stop flailing about like the proverbial decapitated chicken.
I can understand Matt's enthusiasm for Guttenberg, it is tech indeed, but for me it's just TMGS (Too Much Good Stuff). It needs to be simplified.
Essentially, reduced to one "box" and everything else made an add on. Matters such as graphics, video, and the like. I've lost track of all the boxes available out there for Gutenberg, but I have the feeling that they don't need to be separated from text editing the way they are now. As it is now it's just too much work to compose and publish a post what with all the crap you've got to use in Gutenberg.
Given my autism it is for me, I have a feeling I'm not the only one. So Matt, please make it simpler. Focus on the composing of the post, then add the other stuff as part of the posting.
So I'm sticking with the classical editor, and waiting for functionality to return.
At the present time here in California we're having wildfires. In most every story I've seen on the matter the blame is being put on the utility companies, with not a word being said on the private individual's responsibility in the matter. Time after time it's a matter of what the utilities are not doing, and not a thing on what individuals are not doing. I find it amazing that so many Californians have such badly broken arms.
We can do things, but we don't want to take the initiative. I'd have to charge this as aggravated greed. Pay the money, get the work done. It's your responsibility people, get off your ass.
I just got rid of the Cat Avatar Generator plugin, not because it's a bad plugin, but because my subscribers have lousy imaginations. To keep this simple, your user names are rather rote. Just not enough to hook an avatar on. It's like that tribe in Africa where the women's hair styles have to be unique. My subscribers, your user names are just not unique enough. So no more avatars.
So how about using a nickname your friends use instead of something you think makes you look special?
