Attention New York voters!

There are 4 propositions on this year's ballot. Please familiarize yourself with them so you'll be prepared when you vote. The republicans in New York would love it if you're not familiar with them and neglected to vote on them on November 2.

Ballot Proposal 1:
FORM OF SUBMISSION OF PROPOSAL NUMBER ONE, AN AMENDMENT
Amending the Apportionment and Redistricting Process
This proposed constitutional amendment would freeze the number of state senators at 63, amend the process for the counting of the state’s population, delete certain provisions that violate the United States Constitution, repeal and amend certain requirements for the appointment of the co-executive directors of the redistricting commission and amend the manner of drawing district lines for congressional and state legislative offices. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?
In my opinion, and this is my opinion only, I would vote YES! Conservatives want you to vote 'no', so they can control their gerrymandering of election districts. Again, vote YES on proposition one.

Ballot Proposal 2:
FORM OF SUBMISSION OF PROPOSAL NUMBER TWO, AN AMENDMENT
Right to Clean Air, Clean Water, and a Healthful Environment
The proposed amendment to Article I of the New York Constitution would establish the right of each person to clean air and water and a healthful environment. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?
This one is pretty self-explanatory. VOTE YES! We all want and deserve clean and and water, right? VOTE YES on proposition two.

Ballot Proposal 3:
FORM OF SUBMISSION OF PROPOSAL NUMBER THREE, AN AMENDMENT
Eliminating Ten-Day-Advance Voter Registration Requirement
The proposed amendment would delete the current requirement in Article II, § 5 that a citizen be registered to vote at least ten days before an election and would allow the Legislature to enact laws permitting a citizen to register to vote less than ten days before the election. Shall the proposed amendment be approved?
VOTE YES on proposition three. Republicans don't want you to be able to register to vote at all, but they certainly don't want you to register to vote within 10 days of any election. The more citizens exercising their right to vote, the better, whenever they happen to register. VOTE YES on proposition three.

Ballot Proposal 4:
FORM OF SUBMISSION OF PROPOSAL NUMBER FOUR, AN AMENDMENT
Authorizing No-Excuse Absentee Ballot Voting
The proposed amendment would delete from the current provision on absentee ballots the requirement that an absentee voter must be unable to appear at the polls by reason of absence from the county or illness or physical disability. Shall the proposed amendment be approved? VOTE YES on proposition four. You should be able to cast your ballot by absentee ballot whenever you want, especially during a pandemic. This pisses republicans off. COVID is a hoax, right? They don't want you to vote absentee for any other reason, and it should be your right to vote absentee for any reason!

In conclusion, New York voters, we should vote YES on all four ballot propositions. If for no other reason than to piss the state's republicans off. Thank you.

It's no take over.

They're restoring the rightful president to his golden throne. We've all seen the same evidence from Trump's army of attorneys in courts of law all over the U.S. It's irrefutable!

Who can deny there were Jewish space lasers? Who can deny a long dead Hugo Chavez interfered with the Dominion voting machines? Who can deny Chinese, Chechnyan, Vietnamese bamboo shoots in Arizona's ballots?

The evidence is as plain as the swollen, dripping nose on Don Jr.'s face!

Today the January 6th tourists will be proved right, and their immediate release back into the sweet, clear air of American freedom is nigh.

It's a day for all Americans to celebrate and rejoice, at The Return of the King!

Or not.

You're bad, wnylib!

And I mean that in a GOOD way.

Anyone else see the license plate on Biden's limo?

46. That's it, just 46. I'm so happy to see 45 bite the dust.😊

Wait until Trump's cult...

finds out their cult Leader doesn't really look like this....

Now that's going to burst a lot of bubbles!

The age old question: Can farts spread disease?

I know we've all wondered about this, especially in the age off COVID-19. Now, after centuries of study, scientists have finally found the answer.

https://www.mentalfloss.com/article/620533/can-farts-spread-disease

"Short answer: If you’re wearing pants, you should be fine."

"Back in 2001, a nurse asked Australian science author, educator, and commentator Karl "Dr. Karl" Kruszelnicki the same question. She wanted to know if she was contaminating the operating room she worked in by silently farting throughout procedures, Discover reports.

To get to the bottom of the matter, Kruszelnicki contacted Canberra microbiologist Luke Tennent. Tennent asked one of his colleagues to fart directly into two Petri dishes from a distance of five centimeters—first while wearing pants, and then a second time au naturel. While the first Petri dish stayed clean, the second one sprouted bacteria overnight, which seemed to suggest that clothing acts as a barrier between whatever bacteria might be expelled by a fart (not all of which would be contained within the gas itself). Dr. Karl reported the findings in 2014 in the satirical holiday issue of the scientific journal BMJ, noting:

"Our deduction is that the enteric zone in the second Petri dish was caused by the flatus itself, and the splatter ring around that was caused by the sheer velocity of the fart, which blew skin bacteria from the cheeks and blasted it onto the dish. It seems, therefore, that flatus can cause infection if the emitter is naked, but not if he or she is clothed. But the results of the experiment should not be considered alarming, because neither type of bacterium is harmful. In fact, they're similar to the ‘friendly’ bacteria found in yogurt."



There's much more information at the link for those who are interested in the science of flatulence. I ran across this by accident. Really. I'm not consumed with flatulence, so stop saying that! (All apologies to Bob Boudelang).

A few words for Trump supporters.

YOU LOST. GET OVER IT! Oh, and FUCK YOUR FEELINGS!

That is all. Resume your wailing and gnashing of teeth.


Science Proves a Harsh Truth About Very Good Dogs.

This answers the age old question about who is training who.

You know how your heart melts whenever a pup raises its eyebrows? That’s no accident. While research on non-human animals has long suggested that facial expressions are involuntary, it turns out dogs may be different, and like humans, able to control their facial expressions to get what they want. Are you really surprised?

In a 2017 study published in the journal Scientific Reports, researchers tested whether dogs illustrated the “audience effect.” They found that dogs reacted with more noticeable facial expressions when humans were around than when there were no humans around, suggesting that dogs use facial expressions to voluntarily communicate.

A team of researchers at the University of Portsmouth Dog Cognition Centre devised an experiment to investigate whether dogs’ facial expressions are subject to audience effects, which simply means that they wanted to see whether dogs made different faces when they thought they weren’t being watched. This would suggest that they’re voluntarily controlling their facial expressions, changing what we know about animal behavior.

The alternative, that dogs are simply making involuntary faces that express their excitement, sadness, or anger, has been the standard view.
