Linky Friday #86: Actual Hitler Edition
Hitlers:[H1] It’s been over a year, but on last report, Adolf Hitler Campbell’s father still fighting to regain custody him, and he now has a sister named Eva Braun. Sheila Tone gave a family-law perspective on the issue in 2010.
[H2] They’re turning Adolf Hitler’s birthplace into a Holocaust museum.
[H3] From James Hanley: People named Hitler.
[H4] Adolf Hitler allegedly took meth, and had unique sex with Eva Braun (not the one in New Jersey).
[G1] From Mad Rocket Scientist: Great, another gun my kid is going to want…
[G2] From Mad Rocket Scientist: Before we try to add more gun laws, how about we start actually putting people away for breaking the ones we already have. Felon in possession has got to be the easiest charge to prove (when the police arrested X, did they find a gun on X), but too often, it’s the first charge plead out.
[G4] When Australia banned most guns, in came pen guns, little $100 devices that chamber .22’s and have “a 25% chance of exploding.”
[G5] A former firearms instructor for the military was convicted and will be sent to prison for “manufacturing and dealing in firearms without a license” for helping some friends assemble guns, despite allegations of prosecutorial misconduct.
[G6] Here is a video of Larry Good (a vocal proponent of G3 above), talking about the current requirements for gun sales, and how the proposed law would affect them:
[C2] Andrew Lilico thinks that we should go to Mars instead of spending $3,000,000,000 mitigating climate change.
[C4] An eight month simulation may not be helpful, though, if we can only survive for 68 days.
[C6] In 1965, the Soviets created a documentary about lunar colonization. You can see it (and commentary) here.
[M1] Vikram wrote a couple posts on the disparity between New York Times’s call for transparent pricing in contrast to their own pricing model. Overlawyered has another one with regard to the Times condemning arbitration clauses that they themselves implement. No, this doesn’t prove much as writers and editors are free to disagree with the corporate head (and likely do), but it’s still amusing.
[M3] The more maddening I find a paywall, the more likely that the paywall is having some success. I find Financial Times’ paywall to be very maddening.
[M4] I’m pretty bummed about what it’s looking like the government is about to do to Voice of America.
[M5] When someone falls for a joke in the form of a smear, it says more about them than it does the object of the joke/smear. Just own it and move on (like ThinkProgress did).
[M6] Deadspin asks rhetorically “Is A Colorado Senate Candidate Lying About His Football Career?” and after answering the question “yes” it turned out that the answer is no (with regard to the most substantial charge, anyway). They wrote very hedge-minded updates for a day or so, before finally admitting that they f***ed up.
[F1] Soleil Ho argues that foodie trends hurt low-income families.
[F2] Important: The history of the ramen noodle.
[F3] Arguably, food trucks are safer than restaurants.
[F5] Coming soon to an eaterie near you: Cricketburgers! Or bugburgers. Or something.
[F6] Population growth is stressing Seattle’s sushi.
