The Great Lengths Taken to Make Abraham Lincoln Look Good in Photos

Abraham Lincoln had a problem. During his 1860 campaign as a Republican candidate for the American presidency, in an era after the birth of the photograph but before its widespread dissemination in the media, many of the country’s citizens could only guess at what he looked like.

Rumors of his ugliness proliferated. The North Carolina newspaper The Newbern Weekly Progress wrote that Lincoln was “coarse, vulgar and uneducated,” while the Houston Telegraph opined that he was “the leanest, lankiest, most ungainly mass of legs, arms and hatchet face ever strung upon a single frame. He has most unwarrantably abused the privilege which all politicians have of being ugly.”

I hope Team New Zealand trounce Oracle in the Americas Cup from here

Sport never features on this blog but it does right now because the way I see this Americas cup is it is actually a nation/country going up against a billionaire with more wealth than many countries and we may well bitch slap the bastards over the next few days. I hope we do.

The technology involved in these boats is pretty extraordinary and is quite the fucking spectacle. These boats are no longer sailing on the water, they are flying above it. Our little country looks to have built a boat that whips ass and we have done it on a limited budget in the face of Oracle's near limitless budget comparatively. That is impressive.

Larry Ellison is a douche and Oracle is a cunt company worthy of disrespect. I do like Jimmy Spithill however because a good troll is a good troll and he can sail a boat bloody well. Just not well enough hopefully to beat the rocket fast boat we have right now.

The Legacy of Marcel Vogel

Marcel Joseph Vogel (1917 - 1991) was a research scientist for IBM’s San Jose facility for 27 years. He received numerous patents for his inventions during this time. Among these was the magnetic coating for the 24” hard disc drive systems still in use. His areas of expertise were phosphor technology, liquid crystal systems, luminescence, and magnetics.

In the 1970’s Marcel did pioneering work in man-plant communication experiments. This led him to the study of quartz crystals and the creation of a faceted crystal that is now known as the Vogel-cut® crystal.

Rachel Maddow’s FAKE NEWS MSNBC show inspired gunman

The man accused of opening fire on a GOP baseball practice Wednesday declared his love for Rachel Maddow’s MSNBC show and ranted against Republicans in a series of letters to the editor of his local Illinois newspaper.

“One of my favorite TV shows is ‘The Rachel Maddow Show’ on MSNBC,” James Hodgkinson began in one of the letters. “On a recent show she stated that 17 very rich men are supplying the Republican Party with more than 60 percent of their campaign contributions.”
