Looking through that, I noticed that to the request for "…the, "Referral List Instructions” , from HR and the "Weighting and Referral Tool" , also from HR.…" they gave a referral. I hope somebody did that on purpose, because that's just adorable.

There's a lot of interesting entries using loaded language and seeking "real" "original" or "unmodified" data, either from a specific target or just from entire missions.

When Trump played the "Autism" card, re. vaccines in the second Republican debate,
well, you just cringe, and say "Well, Trump's just being Trump."

But when Dr. Carson--standing just to Trump's right--a real doctor, for crissakes,
muted his response to essentially affirm Trump's nonsensical assertions about
doctors supposedly agreeing with Trump that vaccinations need to be more spread out,
rationality took another beating on national television...

Unfortunately this cartoon makes it look like Carson agreed about Trumps autism-vaccine nonsense. Which he did NOT. So while i agree with your text, re the otehr vaccine bunk, that is a really really bad cartoon.

I don't think so. Yes, Dr. Carson begins with "...we have extremely well-documented proof that there's no autism associated with vaccinations..." and it initially looks like he's going to stand strongly against the autism nonsense Trump spouts. But when Trump follows with an anecdotal account of a kid supposedly becoming autistic after being vaccinated, Carson & Paul both let the "autism" claim sit there, and act as if parental choice
and timing are really the issue. And then Trump is able to backpedal--UNCHALLENGED!!-- to
"I am totally in favor of vaccines" though he just linked vaccines to autism! neither Carson nor Paul
call him on this. It's as if they were bullied, on TV, by Trump.
That is the point of the cartoon: Trump is a windbag, but Carson & Paul helped spread bunk with their silence.

http://www.washingtonpost.com/news/...nnotated-transcript-september-16-gop-debate/#

TAPPER: ...I'm turning to another -- I'm turning to another issue right now. Senator Cruz. Well, I think we've heard from several this evening.

A backlash against vaccines was blamed for a measles outbreak here in California. Dr. Carson, Donald Trump has publicly and repeatedly linked vaccines, childhood vaccines, to autism, which, as you know, the medical community adamantly disputes.

You're a pediatric neurosurgeon. Should Mr. Trump stop saying this?

CARSON: Well, let me put it this way, there has -- there have been numerous studies, and they have not demonstrated that there is any correlation between vaccinations and autism.

This was something that was spread widely 15 or 20 years ago, and it has not been adequately, you know, revealed to the public what's actually going on. Vaccines are very important. Certain ones. The ones that would prevent death or crippling.

There are others, there are a multitude of vaccines which probably don't fit in that category, and there should be some discretion in those cases. But, you know, a lot of this is -- is -- is pushed by big government.

And I think that's one of the things that people so vehemently want to get rid of, big government. You know, we have 4.1 million federal employees. Six hundred and fifty federal agencies and department (sic).

That's why they have to take so much of our taxes. TAPPER: Should he stop saying it? Should he stop saying that vaccines cause autism?

CARSON: Well, you know, I've just explained it to him. He can read about it if he wants to. I think he's an intelligent man and will make the correct decision after getting the real facts.

TAPPER: Mr. Trump, as president, you would...

TRUMP: Well, I -- I -- I'd like to respond.

TAPPER: I'm going right to you.

TRUMP: I'd like to respond.

TAPPER: Mr. Trump, as president, you would be in charge of the Centers for Disease Control and the National Institutes of Health, both of which say you are wrong. How would you handle this as president?

TRUMP: Autism has become an epidemic. Twenty-five years ago, 35 years ago, you look at the statistics, not even close. It has gotten totally out of control.

I am totally in favor of vaccines. But I want smaller doses over a longer period of time. Because you take a baby in -- and I've seen it -- and I've seen it, and I had my children taken care of over a long period of time, over a two or three year period of time.

Same exact amount, but you take this little beautiful baby, and you pump -- I mean, it looks just like it's meant for a horse, not for a child, and we've had so many instances, people that work for me.

Just the other day, two years old, two and a half years old, a child, a beautiful child went to have the vaccine, and came back, and a week later got a tremendous fever, got very, very sick, now is autistic.

I only say it's not -- I'm in favor of vaccines, do them over a longer period of time, same amount.

TAPPER: Thank you.

TRUMP: But just in -- in little sections.

TAPPER: Dr. -- Dr. Carson?

TRUMP: I think -- and I think you're going to have -- I think you're going to see a big impact on autism.

TAPPER: Dr. Carson, you just heard his medical take.

(LAUGHTER)

CARSON: He's an OK doctor.

(LAUGHTER)

(APPLAUSE)

CARSON: But, you know, the fact of the matter is, we have extremely well-documented proof that there's no autism associated with vaccinations. But it is true that we are probably giving way too many in too short a period of time.

And a lot of pediatricians now recognize that, and, I think, are cutting down on the number and the proximity in which those are done, and I think that's appropriate.

TRUMP: And that's all I'm saying, Jake. That's all I'm saying.

TAPPER: Dr. Paul? Dr. Paul, I'd like to bring you in.

PAUL: A second opinion?

(LAUGHTER)

One of the greatest -- one of the greatest medical discoveries of all times was -- were the vaccines, particularly for smallpox. And if you want to read a story, it's called The Speckled Monster, it's an amazing story, it was all done voluntary.

But people came in by the droves. George Washington wouldn't let his wife visit until she got vaccinated. So I'm all for vaccines. But I'm also for freedom.

I'm also a little concerned about how they're bunched up. My kids had all of their vaccines, and even if the science doesn't say bunching them up is a problem, I ought to have the right to spread out my vaccines out a little bit at the very least.

TAPPER: Alright, thank you so much...

i'm glad you clarified. Just saying, my point is.. for those not familiar with exactly what was said... Carsen THREE times repeated there is NO correlation to autism. That cartoon only says autism. so to me it reads that two medical doctors are agreeing with Trump about the autism correlation. The cartoon is worse even then what was actually said. (and you'd think that wouldnt be possible)

THAT is how anti vaxxers or 'pro-vaccines cause autism' peoples will read that cartoon. is all im saying.

As far as your other points... definitely... but we all know Rand Paul is (well you know) and Carsen.. um :)

The joke derwoodii posted reminded me of my favorite "science joke"

A photon checks into a hotel and the porter asks him if he has any luggage. The photon replies: “No, I’m travelling light.”

On that note, I recommend the books "F in Exams" and "F for Effort", by Richard Benson. Also "Non Campus Mentis"/"Ignorance is Blitz" by Anders Henriksson (that one got renamed since I bought it for some reason).

"Obviously Noddy is carrying out a covert war against the armies of Taime Down (from Faster Pussycat) in Hawaii. Very soon The Cookie Monster, who is currently only supplying weapons to Noddy, will join in. Kerry Katona has a number of nuclear devices hidden in Weston Super Mare which The Cookie Monster is trying to steal to help win the war and Irradiate all Haggis. We must help Mallardia to stop them, or we are all doomed! "

"A rogue A.I. is stealing people so that it can Control the world grease supply by putting them into a computer simulation where they have to track Breathairians to a secret base near Sea Org HQ. The mental power thus produced by the captive thinkers allows The head cheese lobby, in league with the AI, to compromise Actual Aryans allowing The head cheese lobby to Tax air usage. "

In retrospect, I should have capitalized the Head Cheese Lobby.

Jeff Sparkes is a monster! Stealing cake from small children? Everyone knows it's easier to be the one cutting and give your best blank look when the small children ask why your peice could land a helicopter. Also acceptable is "I get more because I'm much bigger than you, and my body needs more nutrients."

100% Proof of Martians, on Mars...

(Hidden artwork on silicon chips.)

marsroverdarkfield.jpg

Appearing as an opposed duet of helmeted gladiators, these angry silicon soldiers were discovered on the surface of an image sensor used by the Spirit and Opportunity rovers sent to probe the Red planet. Maybe these are the ONLY Martians on Mars? Probably not. In any event, the chip was loaned to us by designer Mark Wadsworth who is a fan of the Silicon Zoo. Mark informs us that he decided to try his hand at silicon artwork after visiting the Zoo on several occasions. The title of his artwork is the "Dueling Marvin the Martians". Mark designed the image sensor for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory along with Tom Elliot, who actually did the testing of the flight candidate imagers to select the 20 or so that actually made it on the two missions. Tom and Mark tended to butt heads quite a bit, which was the inspiration for the doodle.

I always knew that Jeff Sparkes was a wrong un. anyone who would let him manage their band, or even be a photographer for them really needs their head examined.

any know where this picture event actually originated from ?
Not the exact source, but here's the story
http://edition.cnn.com/2014/03/17/travel/delta-plane-wing-panel/
A Delta Air Lines plane lost a panel on one of its wings during a flight from Orlando to Atlanta on Sunday. It landed safely.

"Crew members aboard Flight 2412 reported an access panel had come off the plane's wing while in flight," said Delta spokesman Anthony Black.

Flight 2412, with 179 passengers and six crew members, landed without incident at Atlanta's Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport.

Black called the incident "highly unusual" and said, "the problems with the wing did not affect the plane's ability to fly or operable change in flight."

Officials are inspecting the aircraft to determine a cause.

The plane was a Boeing 757, but Black did not know how old it was.
