Anti-trans trolling spree forces Wikipedia to ban U.S. House staffers for third time
Aug. 21 2014
Wikipedia, the online encyclopedia, has once again blocked all computers from the U.S. House of Representatives in order to stop malicious edits to popular pages on the site.
According to The Hill, Wikipedia instituted the ban on Wednesday night after users operating from the House IP address made a series of anti-trans edits to the page for Netflix series Orange is the New Black.
Anonymous users operating from the Republican-led House were persistently re-editing the page to slur trans actress Laverne Cox by mis-gendering her mentions on the show’s page. For instance, they changed Cox’s description from “real transgender woman” to “real man pretending to be a woman.”
One user in particular went on an anti-trans editing spree this week, changing entries on multiple pages related to transgenderism until Wikipedia administrators were forced to step in.
“An obvious transphobe is using this IP to edit the article on transphobia,” the Hill quoted one Wikipedia user as saying.
“I have no problem with Congressional staffers editing Wikipedia,” said another user to the anti-trans editor. “I have a problem only with YOU vandalizing Wikipedia.”
The person using the IP address responded — without revealing their identity — that the malicious edits were in fact “official business” endorsed by a member of the House. Their changes, they said, were intended to bring “fairness” to the discussion.

and these are the fucking children that run our country. this is despicable.

Goddddddd fuckingggf DaMMIT

On the plus side, the admins are not putting up with this bullshit. They stepped in. They said, “No, you can’t do that. We don’t care if you work for a Representative. We don’t care if you *are* one. If you want to be a bigoted troll, then GTFO. You’re not doing it here.”

Colored toilet paper was introduced in the 1950s, and remained popular until the 1970s.  Homeowners loved coordinating everything in their bathroom, and could buy colors like pink, blue, lavender, yellow, beige, green, and even black.  
Sales began to decline as doctors pointed out that the dyes could cause skin sensitivities, and ecologists said that the dye could be harmful to the environment.  Scott still produced beige, tan and pink until 2004.  But never fear!  Renova is a company that creates highly pigmented toilet paper, including black and fuchsia.  It assures that it is “colorfast for its intended use,” and is “dermatologically and gynecologically tested.”

'Pristine' Mammoth Skeleton Unearthed In Texas

Marty McEwen was digging in the dirt on his dad’s North Texas property in May when the excavator suddenly hit something. That something turned out to be a six-foot tusk — of a mammoth that had walked the earth tens of thousands of years ago.

Then, as if finding a mammoth tusk on one’s property wasn’t spectacular enough, McEwen and his dad, Wayne, soon discovered that it wasn’t just the tusk that was buried on their family’s land but the animal’s nearly complete skeleton — in pristine condition, no less.

The skeleton is believed to belong to a female Colombian mammoth that stood approximately 8 to 9 feet tall at the shoulder. It’s estimated to be 20,000 to 60,000 years old.

Experts called the skeleton — which is reportedly 90 percent complete — an “outstanding find.”

"We get a lot of mammoth fossils in Texas but it’s usually a tooth here, a tusk there or a piece of jaw," Ron Tykoski, a paleontologist with the Perot Museum of Nature and Science in Dallas, told Reuters. "This is unusual. It looks like it just laid down and died."

Though the McEwens could have kept or sold the fossilized remains, they reportedly decided to donate it to the museum.

"It needed to stay in North Texas where the local communities can enjoy it for a long time to come,” Wayne McEwen said in a written statement released by the museum.

Tykoski praised the family’s decision, calling the donation a “huge contribution” to science.

"This fossil is now part of the public trust, meaning scientists can describe it, study it, publish papers on it and display it from this time on,” Tykoski said in the statement. “Without their gift, this magnificent creature might have gone onto the auction block, never to be seen again. It would have been a huge loss for science and for the people of North Central Texas.”

The museum says it expects to have the mammoth skeleton in-house by September.
