Foreign volunteer doctors in Gaza report on Palestinian children apparently shot by snipers, with a shot in the head, a shot in the chest, or one of each. This fits a pattern of Israeli soldiers' shooting at civilians, even groups carrying makeshift white flags. Some old people have also been shot dead in the same way. The article also describes the Israeli army's pattern of not convicting …

Open Source is fascinating. Imagine a pastry chef who spends all day making pastries at work going home to make pastries in the evening. Imagine them wandering around giving these pastries to others for free. Imagine them finding out their free pastries are a huge part of a local company’s lunch offering. Imagine the company complaining because the chef doesn’t make enough pastries for them. Imagine the chef staying up all night making them more pasties instead of just telling them to fuck off.

On this oficially one of my favorite sketches EVER 😂😂😂😂😂 it blows my mind that some americans were aware of the connections the CIA had (and surely still has) with some cartels, and their responsibility in the crack epidemy that hit US in the 80's. But in case you didn't know, Cali Cartel and a nicaraguan Cartel under Norwin Meseses were only possible thanks to the CIA. The money was used to fund paramilitary groups to fight leftists (government and groups) in South and Central America.

Let the responsibility for the nightmare Ecuador, my country, is facing be in Washington. United States' efforts to give us "democracy" and "freedom" worked out! ... in reverse. We've never been worse and this all started with being bought by CIA to apply harsh policies to reduce our state following IMF guidelines. We've got nothing left. Let all these deaths be solely United States' fault.

One of the main consequences after Smith's theory (which later would become the basis of modern and classic economics) is that we get the best of our society if we seek our sole individual benefit while competing with each other. After's Nash Game Theory, this statement did not hold anymore. Altruistic behavior has been perfectly correlated to intelligence and this makes perfect sense, evolution seems to reward cooperating and altruistic conduct. Moreover, even babies are able to identify 'mean' actors and are more likely to pick the "good" one over the bully. It's just beautiful: be nice and forgiving is a strategy that stands out in a lot of scenarios. Take a moment to appreciate how inspiring and optimistic that is.

I like Jazmin Bean and I highly appreciate their creativity. However, it still bothers me how they somehow victimizes themself and the “junkies” (as they called them) for how society looks upon them. I do understand some people are not able to cope with a hard life, but as far as it seems that’s not precisely Jazmin’s case. While Jazmin abused drugs to deal with solitude, my country, my people are getting killed every single day in the midst of this insane insecurity caused to a big extent by the producers of Jazmin’s former “medicine”. Essentially, some european teens not being able to deal with minor childhood problems (yes, minor. People from Latam and Africa do know what real suffering is) are the grease to the machinery poisoning our lands and inhabitants… you know, offer-demand. Everytime you go for “a line” recall someone has died to make it possible for you to obtain it.

I’ve got a question for you all: have you ever tried cocaine or harder drugs? was it in a party? are you still doing it when partying?
