News Anchor Slaps Fan in Face

Posted on July 21st, 2014 by Ben Spera

The most disturbing part of the story is that it was completely unintentional; the reporter was just trying to give the poor guy a high five. This is some of the worst hand-eye coordination I’ve seen… and a respectable amount of restraint shown by the guy who got palmed in the face.

Teddy Roosevelt’s Bar Fight with a Bully

Posted on July 21st, 2014 by Ben Spera

teddy roosevelt Teddy Roosevelts Bar Fight with a BullyPresident Teddy Roosevelt has a reputation for being a tough guy, but here’s a story a bit more personal than the common tale of his days leading the Rough Riders. The best part of this story is that it’s in the President’s own words. It really does justice to the fair but tough man that Roosevelt was.

Take note that Roosevelt makes it clear that he really didn’t want this confrontation, but lacked any alternatives at the time. He also didn’t fall in with the other patrons who submitted to the bully and allow him to continue his shenanigans. He even let a few of the bully’s jibes slide until he stood up. Great story.

What Your Blood Type Might Tell You About Yourself

Posted on July 15th, 2014 by Ben Spera

BloodType Photo1 What Your Blood Type Might Tell You About YourselfHere’s a very interesting and informative article about blood types (e.g. A, B, AB, O, etc) that does a really good job explaining the science behind ABO blood types. Author Carl Zimmer gives a brief history of the discovery of human blood types, including many draconian experiments such as transfusing animal blood and even milk into humans. These growing pains killed a lot of people before science began to get a grasp on how our blood actually works. Scientists and physicians readily admit they still don’t truly understand our blood types, their purpose or why they evolved, but we are finding patterns, disease susceptibilities and resistances, and other quirks inherited by different types of blood.

snowdenfact Ron Paul Launches Snowden Clemency PetitionFormer U.S. Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX) has launched a petition to grant NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden clemency so he may return home. Russia had granted him amnesty for a term of 1 year, but this amnesty runs out in in 5 months, at the end of July. Paul said of Snowden “[He] sacrificed his livelihood, citizenship, and freedom by exposing the disturbing scope of the NSA’s worldwide spying program. Thanks to one man’s courageous actions, Americans know about the truly egregious ways their government is spying on them.” Edward wants to return to his home but needs some degree of assurance that he won’t be persecuted.
