    The Sulu one wasn't a woman. I do have difficulty believing it though, because I'm pretty sure Takei came out in the 2000s. If he was going around to gay bars for 20 years before that, SOMEONE would have recognized him and it would have been all over the news and Hollywood long before that. I guess it's not impossible for it to be true, but it doesn't pass the initial sniff test for me.

    There's so much going on here I don't even know where to begin....A 13 year old girl poses as a married for 8 years so people take her seriously and she can write about baseball. She proceeds to act like "a typical man" and sexually harasses women on Twitter, soliciting nudes while threatening to harm herself.

    What is happening to this world hahaha

    I think Louis CK will eventually come back. He's really the only one to admit what he did, and show remorse. But I could be wrong.

    Hope she gets charged with however many counts of sexual harassment she deserves, justlike any man would be.

    Plus eight Jim, plus eight.

    We know you don't go past the headlines.

    Whatever she did three through eight years ago might not get much of a sentence but anything in the last three years is up for grabs.

    Didn't read past the headline yet again, eh Jim? You're nothing if not predictable.

    There's a military coup underway in Zimbabwe. Mugabe is only of the most corrupt pseudo dictators around, but situations like this rarely go well.

    First attempt to modify genes in a living person:

    If successful, it could end up helping cure all kinds of diseases.

    This is going to stir all kinds of shit up....medical, "ethical" and otherwise. How many drugs/therapies out there could be made obsolete assuming this process works? Stem cells v2.0.

    IMO it shouldn't cause any ethical issues provided it's only used to treat genetic disorders, etc. It would be a total game changer for a lot of people though. That, combined with robotic / AI surgeons could completely transform the healthcare industry.

    That's why I put ethical in quotes. Normal thinking people who might have a rudimentary knowledge of what's going on here don't see any ethical concerns. I can imagine the industry might have incentives to make some up though. We're talking about the United States where climate change has somehow turned into a religious issue.
