Fox Doesn’t Get Why Breaking Bad Star Supports Health Care Reform
Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston invoked the ire of Fox News on April 7 by praising the Affordable Care Act during a recent interview, saying President Obama’s health care program “is fantastic” because “I don’t think basic health care should be a privilege of the rich.”
The co-hosts of Fox’s The Five were confused by Cranston’s support of the law and dismissed it as propaganda. As co-host Greg Gutfeld argued, “How weird is it that a guy who plays a dark, brooding anti-hero is really a puppet to the man. I mean, he just propagandized for President Obama.”
Cranston’s Breaking Bad character, Walter White, of course, famously resorted to cooking meth after a cancer diagnosis because his sub-par health insurance did not cover his treatment — a predicament Walt might not have faced had he been covered under the Affordable Care Act.

A group of geologists and map designers have reconstructed the geological ages of Essos, Westeros, and other regions described in A Song of Ice and Fire. The results are incredible - and reveal just how violent and mythic real-life geological changes can be.
Using the same kinds of tools that allow geologists to model historical and future climates, the group has made educated guesses about what kinds of natural disasters broke and made this dragon-infested planet. They’ve named each geological period after Earth’s geological periods, just to make it easier. But then they’ve invented events like massive vulcanism, plate tectonics that divided Essos from Westeros, and more. It’s marvelously detailed and mesmerizing. They’ve acutally created entire histories for each period. Here they are:
Geologic events occurring XX million years ago (Mya) on Westeros:
(today) The size of the Game of Thrones planet
(25 Mya) The Earth split Westeros from Essos
(30-40 Mya) When Dorne boiled
(40 Mya) Land of ice
(60-80 Mya) The rise of the Black Mountains
(80-100 Mya) As the Moon rose, so did the Lannisters
(300 Mya) Diving the tropical reefs of Winterfell
(450 Mya) The sand ran red
(500 Mya) The first mountains
"I’m a historian dedicated to finding the historical truth. After years of studying, I finally came to the conclusion that everything I had previously thought about the historical evidence of the resurrection was absolutely wrong.

Your body language effects how you think and shapes who you are. Take a minute to examine your posture right now and note what you’re doing. Often times, our posture releases physical cues that intend to make ourselves smaller. Your knees are curled up to your chest. Your arms…

Two chemists walk into a bar.
One of them asks for H2O. The other asks for H2O2 and giggles.
The bartender serves them both hydrogen peroxide because he’s fucking tired of chemists walking into his bar and trying that joke.
My biology teacher, Mr. G, used to teach at a K - 12 Christian school many years back, and in his biology class, he taught evolution. Naturally, this made many parents of religious families upset, and he expected quite a lot of backlash at parent-teacher night….
