Well, that's hardly my fault.  I was just doing what I do, doing my little dance, singing my little song, you know?  And then Hirley0 got on the dance floor and said

SHAKE THAT
First ^  Then V

And I did.  I didn't feel like I had any choice.  Between P-Funk and Hirley0, I became the man reptillian menace I am today.

Bootsy Collins did this to me.

China announces plans to institute the survaillance system from 1984 and Paranoia by 2020

EDIT:
I think that the rap and metal music industries ought to co-opt this and reach out to the people in China with the absolute lowest scores and turn them into stars

It is an unfortunate fact that every man who seeks to disseminate knowledge must contend not only against ignorance itself, but against false instruction as well. No sooner do we deem ourselves free from a particularly gross superstition, than we are confronted by some enemy to learning who would plunge us back into the darkness -H.P.Lovecraft

Is Your Local Lawmaker A ‘Fossil Fool?’ Sierra Club Targets Environmental Foes In Midterms

As per the article: 'The Sierra Club, the nation’s oldest environmental group, is targeting nearly a dozen lawmakers it wants to defeat in November’s midterm elections in order to help elect candidates working to address climate change and other green interests.

The group launched a new campaign on Tuesday in which it labeled 10 congressional candidates “Fossil Fools” for supporting the oil and gas industry with a simple message: “We have an opportunity to send them home.”'

Here's the link: https://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/fossil-fools-sierra-club-midterms_us_5ba9c509e4b0375f8f9ff19f

Personally, I would have called them “Fossil Tools,” as they're not doing what they do for the oil and gas industry for free. But, that's just me.

That's what I like to call "Insult by Committee" -- no single person could come up with a phrase that lackluster and corny.

This is a fact.  That is the kind of painfully banal slogan you get out of teamwork committees.

Cable new commentator fired for being too gross, even for Fox News

As per the article:

“Now-former Fox News commentator Kevin Jackson, who managed to successfully find the line that not even his employers would be willing to cross in regards to attacking women willing to stand up to powerful men, specifically with some of his Twitter commentary today about Dr. Christine Blasey Ford.”

and:

“The network is presumably now casting around for someone capable of expressing their unease at the idea of female autonomy in the more gentle, chipperly smiling form to which its viewers are accustomed.”

The Russian dude that arranged the Trump tower meeting just fell off of his balcony.  Probably not related.

It's OK, he probably just owes some taxes.

You asked, LMNO...

China has confirmed it is holding the missing head of Interpol, Meng Hongwei.

Beijing said he was under investigation by the country's anti-corruption body for unspecified breaches of the law.

Mr Meng, also a vice-minister of public security in China, was reported missing after travelling from the city of Lyon in France, where Interpol is based, to China on 25 September.

Quote
China's National Supervision Commission, which handles corruption cases involving public servants, said Mr Meng was under investigation in a statement on its website.

Mr Meng is the latest high-profile disappearance in China, where a number of top government officials, billionaires and even an A-list celebrity have vanished in recent months.

Earlier this week, actress Fan Bingbing, who disappeared in China in July, emerged with a public apology and a fine of 883 million yuan ($129m; £98.9m) for tax evasion and other offences.

I'm assuming the implicit signal here of "if you're transgender you're going to die" is a feature and not a bug.

"Sorry kid, all life is sacred and all that but we can't have you potentially raping the real girls, so off to the gym bleachers to get shot at."
