I'm reluctant to comment too much on it because I don't know all the facts, but my understanding is that Gawker posted a poor quality excerpt that showed about ten seconds of sex.I think we can mostly agree that the existence of the tape and the event itself are newsworthy -- Hogan's "best friend" is a radio celebrity himself, and he's very publicly having his wife have sex with various celebrities, then secretly recording it.Even assuming the tape itself is off limits,...
I don't like Gawker, but the entire affair is troubling on many levels. A dubious claim, an outrageous verdict, the company being put out of business before being able to appeal the judgment.
Hillary defense "fails," sailor gets a year in prison. If only he'd said he was just extremely careless! http://legalinsurrection.com/2016/08/hillary-did-it-too-defense-fails-sailor-gets-jail-for-submarine-photos/ I put "fails" in scare quotes because based on the (very little) I've read about the case, just one year actually sounds like a good result for the guy. I mean, not as good as walking away scott free and getting rich for making "speeches" and being made...
Trump has pretty much always softened his promises to enforce existing immigration laws [i.e., "mass deportation"] by saying "but then they'll come back, legally."

Trump himself has repeatedly said stuff like "everything's negotiable."
Ah, here's a more or less contemporary review of the various claims that Muslims broke for Bush in 2000. Apparently, the claims are dubious to begin with and to the extent that it happened, it was because a Jew was on the Democrat ticket. http://www.meforum.org/13/how-did-muslims-vote-in-2000
Bush got 28% of the "other religion" demographic in the 2000 election. Maybe Buddhists and Hindus voted for Gore?But it did drop by about 5 points after 9/11, so...http://www.pewforum.org/2012/11/07/how-the-faithful-voted-2012-preliminary-exit-poll-analysis/
But you're not addressing my point, which was that the cooler bar leaves less severe burns. Maybe oppression of blacks was so bad in the deep south that it just looped and started having positive effects, like an integer overflow.
Is this some kind of metallurgy in-joke?
Heh.
Just out of curiosity I googled "relatively cool":5,840 degrees (F): https://books.google.com/books?id=IoCcAgAAQBAJ&pg=PA122#v=onepage&q&f=false450 degrees F: http://www.scientificamerican.com/article/closest-earth-size-exoplanet-found-may-be-a-venus-twin/3,500 degrees F: http://earthsky.org/space/small-star-has-storm-like-jupiters1,000 degrees F: http://www.futurity.org/weather-exoplanet-wasp-43b-781182/Etc.
