Scientist Who Popularized Term Global Warming Dead at 87

Scientist Who Popularized Term Global Warming Dead at 87:  Wallace Smith Broecker, the Columbia University professor and researcher who raised early alarms about climate change and popularized the term "global warming,” has died at age 87.  Meanwhile, angry Trump supporters are demanding to know why it is - if global warming is supposed to be real, did he die in the dead of winter instead of from heat stroke?

Kylie Jenner Claims She Was Financially Cut at Age 15:  Reality star and makeup mogul Kylie Jenner responded to critics of her being named by Forbes as “one of America’s richest self-made women,” by claiming that none of her money is inherited and her parents cut her off at age 15.  No kidding!  None of her money is inherited because no one’s died yet.  In her defense, I don’t think Kylie quite understands the full meaning of the phrase “cut off.”  I suggest if she really wants to know the true meaning of the phrase, then she should ask an expert on the subject - such as Lorena Bobbitt.

Trump Signs Executive Order Prioritizing Artificial Intelligence Research:  The White House has announced that President Donald Trump has signed an executive order, directing the U.S. government to prioritize artificial intelligence in its research and development spending.  Ironically, with so many folks voting for con-artists like the Trump clan and spending their time watching shows like “Keeping Up with the Kardashians,” some kind of artificial intelligence is beginning to sound like our last hope.

Kardashians would qualify for Democrats and clueless liberals who couldn't be bothered with truth. Don't cast such a wide net when defining willful ignorance.

Vega- so, you are closet Reality TV fan! I guess you get your kicks watching Blac China kick Big Rob's ass all over Tiffany's. Audrey Hepburn must be rolling in her grave ... anyone can say what they want about Kylie, but, haters will hate, that young woman made MILLIONS on her own, and that is simply financial fact. Some of you who don't follow it would be amazed how much revenue Instagram and YouTube can generate a young star, never mind cable TV re-runs ...

Climate denier's don't stand a snowball's chance in hell, but then neither do the rest of us

Bucks, shmucks ... please tell me why Kylie is famous? What has she actually accomplished, other than to trade on her name and her fame?

New rule of grammar:  Never use Trump and intelligence in the same sentence

Kylie is famous for the same reason Christian Brando and Joan Crawford's poor adopted offspring were- Guilt by accident of birth. in Kylie's case a Jenner AND a Kardashian! The Big Bucks come from TV salaries, residuals, sponsorship deals (that, amazingly, work very well for the sponsors and their products, aimed at tweens and millennials) and the HUGE income Social Media sites generate for their own "one percenters" of fame. This young lady is going to be a billionaire, and whether you call it work or not, she's done it using her own image, regardless of who her agents and handlers are. What has she accomplished? Never gained a pound!

Trump Signs Executive Order Prioritizing Artificial Intelligence Research

Weirdly there's been more than a chad meant to type 'tad' of evidence 'out there' that 'we've' been experimenting with a viable AI since as early or as long long time ago as earlier as 1954.

Who'll evah forget?
