The Israeli military is using flechette shells, which spray out thousands of tiny and potentially lethal metal darts, in its military operation in Gaza.

Six flechette shells were fired towards the village of Khuzaa, east of Khan Younis, on 17 July, according to the Palestinian Centre for Human Rights. Nahla Khalil Najjar, 37, suffered injuries to her chest, it said. PCHR provided a picture of flechettes taken by a fieldworker last week.

If you fold a paper in half 103 times it'll get as thick as the Universe


http://youtu.be/AAwabyyqWK0

The myth: You can't fold a paper in half more than eight times.* The reality: Given a paper large enough—and enough energy—you can fold it as many times as you want. The problem: If you fold it 103 times, the thickness of your paper will be larger than the observable Universe: 93 billion light-years. Seriously.

The Rand Paul Pile-On

If you had any doubts about how seriously some Republicans are taking the notion of a Rand Paul presidency, look at how far they’re going to shut down his views on foreign policy.

Libertarian Answer to Deal with Homelessness?

I currently live in one of THE worst places for homelessness – Atlanta, GA.

The other day I walked out of my apartment and a homeless man ran up to me shouting “Hey man, give me some money for food!” I’ve been in Atlanta 10 years and every year the problem gets significantly worse. Homeless people/panhandlers are EVERYwhere looking to get something for free. They harass pedestrians and constantly shout at apparently nothing as they’re walking to wherever they go.

I don’t mean to sound curt regarding this issue. I know it’s serious and it would be great if homeless shelters could provide perpetual care for these individuals who need it, but the constant harassment is taking its toll on Atlanta residents.

So what IS the Libertarian solution to this?

Hillary vs Rand

Rand Paul will inherit his father’s youth brigade and their numbers will be dramatically boosted by the fact that, unlike daddy, he could actually win the nomination. And if he gets it? Then the Clinton/Paul debates over foreign policy will really mess with conventional minds. Just imagine the Democrat being the one who voted for the Iraq War and the Republican being the one telling America to just stay home.

I have Down syndrome, and I deserve a chance to compete!

My name is Garrett Holeve and I am a 24-year-old with Down syndrome who has been training as a Mixed Martial Arts (MMA) fighter for over four years in Florida. Since I became involved in MMA it has become a very important part of my life. I was recently denied the opportunity to compete as a MMA fighter. This is not the first time I have been denied. These denials undermine my progress in my sport and embarrass me. You can help me secure an opportunity to compete in the sport I love by signing my petition.

Is The Stock Market Near Collapse?

Is the Stock Market Ready to Collapse?

Podcast

13:56-18:26 discussion of the tenuous position of the stock market with sky high valuations and no underlying fundamentals to support them.

The stock market could do down on a moment’s notice and stay down because the companies are not doing that well and will do worse after a stock market crash, so a swift rebound may not happen even if the Fed attempts to reflate. The Fed appears to be trying to talk down the market a little perhaps to avoid a larger correction or crash.
