Famed theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking was found dead in his home on Mar 14.   He was 76..

Hawking is truly an interesting case.  A man who, when he was diagnosed with ALS (a.k.a. Lou Gehrig's disease) over 50 years ago, was given a mere two years to live, went on to become perhaps the most celebrated scientist in the world, Hawking truly defied all odds.  His research was championed by progressives, who ironically would have been all too happy to abort him in the womb if they could.  It was only because the man was educated at a prestigious university-- University College, Oxford, England--and could "do math good" that his recklessness, lazy work ethic, and toxic personality was even tolerated. If Hawking had attended whatever the British equivalent of our community/state universities are here in America, he would have had a much harder time of it-- shunned and despised by all, viciously mocked and hazed by his peers, lied to constantly, eventually forced out of school, and likely ended up just another burden on the already-overtaxed European welfare state. He would have died broken and in obscurity in some filthy counsel hovel or overcrowded, understaffed group home, because he would not have had what the left calls a "quality of life" (a nonsensical pseudo-intellectual phrase these morons throw around routinely like "theory of mind" or "global climate change").

Instead the celebrated professor went on to lecture and publish a number of books expanding our knowledge on black holes, the existence of the Higgs boson (admittedly one of his few blunders), the question of life on other worlds, exploring the fabric of the universe and the nature of space-time, and even lent his voice to The Simpsons and made several appearances on The Big Bang Theory.

John Kricfalusi, creator of "Ren & Stimpy" and "The Ripping Friends"  accused of sexual misconduct

One of the accusers, who was still in her teens during the time of the alleged harassment, claims Kricfalusi has a stash of child pornography.

It probably doesn't help that one of his creations is a highly sexually-charged 15-year-old girl character named "Sody Pop".

^ That is expected.  The guy is a self-centered jack-ass who thinks he knows everything better then everyone else as well.

Related to this is Niceklodeon's Dan Schneider has been fired for allegations of sexual misconduct.

Very little information on that is available, and what has been put forth is strictly wildcat speculation and "poorly-sourced".  The man called the "Norman Lear of children's programming", messing around with his nubile teenage ingenues?  Sort of makes that chipper "Love ya, Dan!" Amanda Bynes exclaims in the opening credits of The Amanda Show take on a whole new meaning, doesn't it?  The Weinstein effect claims another one....

Worthless Navy: Canada's Last Destroyer Headed To The Scrap Yard.


I'm upset at Canada's lack of Navy... They have more water boundaries then nearly any country on earth... and have no policing/protective force to patrol it.  Especially the ever important Arctic waterways!  They just going to rely on the US?  Disappointing once again Canada.... And this isn't just a Justin Trudeau problem...

Canadian's Love Affair With Justin Trudeau Is Over.

Well... maybe Canada woke up and realized a substitute teacher wasn't the best person to lead a country.  Canada's decline has been alarming as of late.  Trudeau's attempt to make them a soft-European nation is working, but it is destroying all forms of identity this country ever had.  Canada is a joke internationally, especially after Trudeau's sham of a trip to India where he was a complete fool on stage.

So has anyone heard the radio promos for the new film Chappaquiddick, about Ted Kennedy and the curious case of Mary Jo Kopechne, set for theatrical release in a couple weeks? The  ads warn audiences the film contains "strong language, graphic imagery and... historical smoking".  I'm sorry, is this really a thing? Are cigarettes so terrible and shocking that people have to be warned beforehand that they might see folks enjoy a smoke?  "Historical" smoking? Okay, yeah, in those bygone halcyon days you could light up in an office or a police station or, hey, even in your own living room without someone wanting to pillory you, but, c'mon.  Historical? Every other old detective show on late-night cable TV show has the gumshoe, first thing, either offer the client a cigarette or having one himself. Columbo would look positively naked without a cigar in his mouth.  Mannix, Bannacek, Peter Gunn, Perry Mason-- all of them smoked, I think.  I never heard anyone make much of that fact before. A filthy habit, to be sure, but historical?  In the words of my hero Mad Max, "My big ol' butt!" Like it's really going to advance the story to see all the President's men puffing away in the danger room.  I think someone lost sight of the point, which is the premise of the narrative:  Teddy's handlers trying to spin away the fact that Jack and Bobby's drunken lout of a brother just drowned a girl in his car. Smoking? Historical?  Please!  I never heard anyone confuse Ironside with a documentary about disability advocacy in the workplace, or I Love Lucy for a show about the plight of Cuban immigrants who marry whiny show-crashing redheads for green-card immunity.  What next,  a content warning about "historical drinking" for any film where alcohol is consumed? Pray they don't do a bio-pic about Ulysses S. Grant-- he was reputed to drink so much they could've floated the Monitor and the Merrimack on a sea of his swollen liver.
