Is there a way to get the word out around here that Q is not on Twitter?
Whenever someone says that, I want to chew my own face off. Posters that say this have not done one minute of research.

All the high level trips to Antarctica have always made me go hmmmmmm. But there are so many BS conspiracies about it, its hard to get an idea of what is actually going on there.
Gill Dal Din: Space exploration is no longer the domain of governments
The focuss of the 2018 Challenge is to explore Antarctica as an analogue of future space exploration, seeking innovative solutions to enable safer, more efficient navigation across Antarctica.
Christchurch has been able to leverage its Antarctic gateway status to host the Space Challenge.
The Antarctic is already used for space-related research; an example is a region called Dry Valley which has some environmental conditions similar to Mars – found nowhere else in the world and an important source of insight.
But the Antarctic Gateway also brings with it expertise in logistics, extreme conditions operations, clothing and equipment design and other support features that can be applied to space exploration.
The NZ Space Challenge competition is the brain child of Edmund Hillary Fellows Emeline Paat-Dahlstrom and Eric Dahlstrom, who have come to New Zealand to establish SpaceBase because of our unique position in the world
The image above may look like the illustration for a vintage science fiction movie, an astronaut transfixed by an alien sun on a desolate planet. But no, it’s just another day on Earth.

AT&T pushing back against Google and co. on their censorship? Working for a Bill of Rights for social media? I've seen BuzzFeed and The Federalist both publishing stuff related to how social media is being outright censored in other countries. I found it particularly laughable that BuzzFeed did open research on blocked accounts in other countries and did not mention that accounts were being blocked in the US.
Sort of ironic that BuzzFeed's piece is really solid ... except for not at all mentioning the banning in the US.

U.S. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin said Thursday that U.S. is ready to negotiate an 'attractive' trade deal with Britain once the country has left the European Union.
During his meeting with May, Trump said the two leaders have a 'really great relationship, although some people don't necessarily believe that.' He said it was a 'false rumor' that the relationship was strained and that he wanted to 'correct it.'
'We are very much joined at the hip when it comes to the military. We have the same ideas, the same ideals, and there's nothing that would happen to you that we won't be there to fight for you,' he told May. 'You know that.'
Trump says U.S. aid to the Palestinians is 'on the table' but they won't get it 'unless they sit down and negotiate peace.'
