Mayan Apocalypse

  • John Kerry

    Guns / Firearms, Non-Sequiturs, Richard Epstein, Robert Bork

    Non-Sequiturs: 12.21.12

    * John Kerry has been nominated to be the next Secretary of State. I expect a tough confirmation battle where Republicans openly question his courage and integrity under fire… oh, wait, I’m being told that Republicans were actually just lying to all of us in 2004 by slandering a war hero for political gain. [Yahoo! News]

    * The best thing about the NRA’s bizarre press conference was that I got to go on the Huffington Post and use the Konami code in a point. [HuffPost Live]

    * Of course, if people could get high, there would be less gun violence. [The Volokh Conspiracy]

    * And by the way, nobody plays Bulletstorm, Mortal Kombat and Slaughterhouse are decades old, and nobody has even heard of Kindergarten Killer, but it apparently involves a janitor who takes out a school. Grand Theft Auto is some good stuff though. It’s so good, I’m going to go out and jack some cars, drive into a police cruiser, and then hide out until I lose my wanted level. [Kotaku]

    * Richard Epstein on Robert Bork. [Ricochet via How Appealing]

    * You know what’s sad? The Mayan calendar was a scientific masterstroke that was turned into a punchline largely by people who are resistant to science. If you’re looking for real end of the world scenarios, the truth is out there. [Science Blogs]

    Lawyer of the Day: Sorry Judge, But I’m Unavailable Due to the Mayan Apocalypse

    It’s the end of the world as we know it, so I’m not coming to court, judge!
