  2. Researcher lands "dream job" of studying bears in montana, promptly gets attacked by grizzly. https://www.greatfallstribune.com/story/news/2018/05/22/montana-bear-researcher-dream-job-attacked-grizzly-amber-kornak/634343002/ A government wildlife worker who recently landed her dream job researching grizzly bears in a Montana mountain range is recovering from a bear attack that left her with a fractured skull and other serious injuries. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service seasonal field assistant Amber Kornak was attacked on May 17 while working alone near a stream in the Cabinet Mountains, agency spokeswoman Jennifer Strickland said. While being mauled, the 28-year-old Kornak managed to reach a canister of Mace-like bear spray and ended the attack, inadvertently spraying herself in the process. She then walked to her work vehicle and drove to find help, according to Strickland. Working with grizzlies had been a longstanding career goal for Kornak, who is recovering at a hospital in Kalispell following surgery for the skull injury and from severe cuts to her head, neck and back, said Jenna Hemer, a friend who spoke with Kornak following the attack. ... Kornak was working at the time of the attack on a genetic study that requires collecting grizzly hair samples. The hairs can be found on trees or other objects that grizzlies rub against, and are used to analyze the animals' DNA. ... So... mission accomplished?

    Syrian conflict.

    I don't even know what's going on with all the different sides sniping at each other. It's like a Syrian Civil War cosplay on the Open Thread with all of the different sides.

    It keeps getting better. Meghan Markle’s nephew was nabbed trying to bring a knife into a London nightclub hours after her royal wedding. https://nypost.com/2018/05/20/meghan-markles-nephew-uses-trump-as-excuse-for-trying-to-bring-knife-into-club/ “He was going on about was how he’d brought it from America because Donald Trump had said London wasn’t safe,” according to a witness.

    Update: Fish and Wildlife officers tracked down and euthanized the cougar. https://www.kiro7.com/news/local/crews-responding-to-report-of-mountain-lion-attack-near-north-bend/752771730 The 31-year-old man said he and a friend were mountain biking in the Lake Hancock forest area at about 11 a.m. Saturday when they realized they were being chased by the big cat. "So they stopped and they made a lot of noise, said Myers, ''which is exactly what we counsel people to do." But then the attack took a tragic turn. "The two victims then took a minute and were catching their breath about this amazing, incredibly scary event that just occurred," he said, "and suddenly the victim who's now in Harborview was attacked again by this cougar. It latched onto his head." The man who managed to escape watched his friend run. The cougar chased after him and killed him. ... Wildlife officials say that at 100 pounds, the cougar was a big cat, a male, 3-4 years old. They are hoping the necropsy will provide the answers they need to figure out why the encounter turned deadly.

    United States Gun Control Megathread

    Pornstar Mia Khalifa, the Lebanese chick who had a fatwa issued against her by ISIS for getting her ass pounded by multiple dudes while wearing the hijab, made the Twitter rounds today by publicly advocating for gun control after turning in her shotgun in to the Austin Police Department. She apparently believes the gun's value to be $1,500... Also, her "manager" claims that she purchased it without undergoing a background check at a gun dealer. Hot takes: 1) Given the number of porn stars that have killed themselves over the past year (at least two, including one today) this is no doubt a good move. 2) After being called out for lying about the gun's story on Twitter by 2nd Amendment types, she has been changing her tale. It really is disconcerting to discover that a porn star would fake it. 3) Given her body of work, I'd have thought that Khalifa would have preferred a black gun...

    Movie tanks and terrible Vismods

    It's funny how many Hollywood movies were made in Spain when it was still run by Franco back in the 1960s and 1970s.
  12. So the shooter used a shotgun and a .38 revolver, according to this report. https://www.click2houston.com/news/police-confirm-reports-of-active-shooter-at-santa-fe-high-school
  13. So now they're expecting us to believe that Lando Calrissian is "pan-sexual". https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/lando-calrissian-sexual-fluidity-solo-star-wars_us_5af77d59e4b00d7e4c1b37a9 https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/entertainthis/2018/05/17/lando-calrissian-pansexual-solo-star-wars-reaction/620566002/ “There’s a fluidity to Donald and Billy Dee’s [portrayal of Lando’s] sexuality,” Kasdan continued. “I mean, I would have loved to have gotten a more explicitly LGBT character into this movie. I think it’s time, certainly, for that, and I love the fluidity ― sort of the spectrum of sexuality that Donald appeals to and that droids are a part of.” “He doesn’t make any hard and fast rules. I think it’s fun,” Kasdan said. “I don’t know where it will go.” Because not only is Hollywood/Disney unable to make a good Star Wars movie, it's writers lack the emotional intelligence to be able to interpret the portrayal of Lando in Empire Strikes Back/Last Jedi as anything but a roguish playboy who only shows sexual interest in a female (and an attractive princess at that).
  14. That self-deprecating humor. And this is why Trump supporters love him.
