The ninth in The Economist series of films previewing some of the big themes of 2018 considers America’s mid-term elections. A bad result for Donald Trump could lead to his impeachment. Can he unite and rally Republican voters?
Trump tries pronouncing Puerto Rico with a Spanish accent.
What a moron. What a major moron. Donald Trump is an embarrassment to the people of the United States. I’m beginnng to think Trumps’ speeches he reads off a teleprompter are written out for him phonetically.
Wonderful video of elephants getting milk.
From The Guardian:
Former acting attorney general Sally Yates has come out on top after Texas senator Ted Cruz attempted to corner her during a discussion about Donald Trump’s travel ban. Cruz cited a portion of US code that allows presidents to prevent immigrants from entering the country if their arrival would be ‘detrimental to the interests of the United States’. But Yates was unflustered, quickly replying with a quotation from another statute that says visas cannot be denied due to someone’s race, nationality or place of birth.
Hey Ted Cruz. Listen up. Never ask a question for which you don’t already know the answer.
Video of some amazine 3D drawings. Enjoy.
I’ve always been fascinated with how things work and the work which goes into making things work. I suppose some of the curiosity comes from my dad who was a mechanical engineer by training and a businessman by nature.
When I was young one of my favorite toys was the Meccano set. I was fortunate to have had several and would create stuff all the time, often losing the little nuts in the bedroom carpet much to the consternation of my mother and her vacuum.
When I was emailed this video this morning I watched it intently, revelling in the fun it would have been to make Marbles and Magnets do what they do just for the sake of making it. The video has been around a while I understand, but it was new to me. And maybe new to you too.
