Every day, The Federal Register, the daily journal of the United States government, publishes on its website and in a thick booklet around 100 executive orders, proclamations, proposed rule changes and other government notices that federal agencies are mandated to submit for public inspection.
So far, so good.
It turns out, however, that the Federal Register employees who take in the information for publication from across the government still receive some of it on the 3.5-inch plastic floppy disks that have become all but obsolete in the United States.
This sounds like the same crack squad that set the nuclear launch codes to 00000000.

I feel really bad for the sea lion that Seaworld forces to approach his/her natural predator.
Is it bad that I’m laughing extremely hard at how the orca just annihilates the sea lon in the 2nd gif?
all I can hear is NYOOM
You wanna know something cool? Recent studies of orcas seem to show that during the seal breeding season, they knowingly limit their intake of seals. In fact, there are documented cases of orcas gently grabbing seal pups and pulling them into shore to keep them safe from being eaten.
Why? You might wonder.
The case studies seem to say that the orcas know that no baby seals growing up means less seals next year. They are so intelligent that they’re aware of their own impact as a predatory species on their prey and actively work to conserve the number of that prey species for the future. Maybe we could learn something about moderation and conservation from these animals.
They should really be granded nonhuman personhood like they were in India.
Intelligence of Orcas. Well said.
It’s like they’re becoming sentient enough to create an economic and political structure which creates a food source for them, indefinitely, through the prolonging of another animal’s life.
Like humans. Only humans don’t need to.

What I like about Deadpool is that he consistently gets labelled as a ‘bad’ person, because he’s clumsy, has a lot of collateral damage, is mouthy, etc.. But the thing is, at the end of the day, he’s actually an awesome human being. He always does his best to do right by people, even if he’s mislead or deceived. He’s a rape victim, and abuse victim, a cancer survivor, and refuses to hurt kids. He acts crazy (and yes, he’s quite insane as well) to cope with the incredible psychological burden he has to bear.
He’s not one dimensional, and he’s sort of what I know a lot of people would be like if they were put in his position. He’s an encrible example fo humanity.
I suppose earlier generations had to sit through all this huffing and puffing with the invention of television, the phone, cinema, radio, the car, the bicycle, printing, the wheel and so on, but you would think we would learn the way these things work, which is this:
1) everything that’s already in the world when you’re born is just normal;
2) anything that gets invented between then and before you turn thirty is incredibly exciting and creative and with any luck you can make a career out of it;
3) anything that gets invented after you’re thirty is against the natural order of things and the beginning of the end of civilisation as we know it until it’s been around for about ten years when it gradually turns out to be alright really.
Apply this list to movies, rock music, word processors and mobile phones to work out how old you are.
