We investigate arson differently now: Nearly 25 years ago, New York businessman Han Tak Lee was sent to jail, convicted of an arson that led to the death of his mentally-ill daughter. This week, with the arson-science evidence used against him now discredited, Lee will now leave prison at the age of 79. He’s not out of the woods yet, though: Prosecutors have 120 days to decide whether or not they want to retry him. His supporters, however, see that as unlikely.

So here’s a fun fact: Starting tomorrow, FXX will air every episode of The Simpsons, in order. Pretty cool, right? Well, even moreso, because the episodes they air will be completely uncut, meaning scenes that haven’t aired in decades due to syndication cuts will be on the air. 
Oh yeah, to the people who created “The Simpsons: Tapped Out”: Thanks for getting me addicted to a funny Farmville, ya jerks.

Remember when the TSA used so called “porno-scanners” to X-ray people at airports? Fun fact about that, according to some researchers: You can actually get weapons through them unnoticed. Oops.
P.S.: Sorry for the TSA nudity.

So ISIL speaks for no religion. Their victims are overwhelmingly Muslim, and no faith teaches people to massacre innocents. No just God would stand for what they did yesterday, and for what they do every single day. ISIL has no ideology of any value to human beings. Their ideology is bankrupt. They may claim out of expediency that they are at war with the United States or the West, but the fact is they terrorize their neighbors and offer them nothing but an endless slavery to their empty vision, and the collapse of any definition of civilized behavior.

And people like this ultimately fail. They fail, because the future is won by those who build and not destroy and the world is shaped by people like Jim Foley, and the overwhelming majority of humanity who are appalled by those who killed him.
From Obama’s statement on the killing of James Foley.
