The Monday Morning News

Seahawks win! More importantly, they beat the fucking Cowboys. Yay!

Dan and Terry win! An Emmy! Of course they do. Everything comes so easy for you gays. My question to Dan is, when does it get better for us straight white guys?

King of the Jews. Stupid, stupid, Tee-Vee journalist David Gregory referred to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu as the "leader of the Jewish people." And I declare my kitty Wompus to be the leader of the cats!

"Muslims hate us because of their religion." Stupid, stupid, Tee-Vee journalist Joe Scarborough is just plain stupid.

What do the Boy Scouts and the Catholic Church have in common? A new investigative report claims that the Boy Scouts covered up hundreds of cases of alleged child molestation rather than reporting the incidents to parents and the police.

Local teens die hiking. Two Federal Way teens died after trying (and failing) to climb a rock at Otter Falls near North Bend.

Bike safety in numbers. As the number of cyclists on the road increases, the number of car-bike collisions decline, as drivers become cognizant that, "Hey... there are cyclists on the road! Better be careful not to hit them!"

Happy birthday Occupy Wall Street! You don't look a day over 99 percent.

Happy birthday Battle of Antietam! Today is the 150th anniversary of the bloodiest day of the Civil War.

Microsoft to ship at least 94,000 Surface tablets... when it gives one to each of its 94,000 employees. Meanwhile, Apple took a record 2 million iPhone 5 preorders in its first 24 hours.

School's out forever! Or at least for second week in Chicago, where teachers remain on strike.

If he runs the nation like he ran his convention, we're fucked. Apparently, Mitt Romney dropped plans to talk about Afghanistan at his nominating convention, so as to make room for Clint Eastwood. How's that working out for you, Mitt?

And finally, a cool way to separate egg yolks:

That is a petty cool way to separate an egg, but I wouldn't do it unless I was sure the bottle was sanitary first.

"Bike safety in numbers. As the number of cyclists on the road increases, the number of car-bike collisions decline," as regular people join the ranks of riders and the proportion of asshole cyclists is lowered.

This sounds like an episode of South Park:

After a lifetime of membership, Big Gay Al is thrown out of Mountain Scouts. A new, masculine, scoutmaster named Mr. Grazier is appointed and he promises the parents he will whip the boys into line and make them good scouts, but proceeds to force them to pose for naked pictures with a threat to beat them up if they let this slip.

Wow, a group that is openly and officially homophobic covered up for and protected child molesters rather than protecting their past and future victims. Sounds vaguely familiar.

"This is totally surprising!" said no one.

"Muslims hate us because of their religion."

Is that why Muslims are always leaving dead female interns in their offices?

David Gregory is just silly. Everyone knows that the three secret Jews who run all of the world's banks are the real leaders of the Jewish people.

Re: More Bicycles = Less Accidents.

Interesting, this is the result predicted in the book about psychic blindness, "The Invisible Gorilla". The authors wrote a chapter on bicycling accidents, saying that of all the technologies for visibility -- lights, bright clothing, ... -- the main factor for getting drivers to be cognizant of bikes is having more of them on the road -- that is, getting drivers to acknowledge and expect that a bicycle might be in the lane next to them.

Re: Getting Better for Straight White Guys

Never. Not in Seattle at least.

I knew Moses and Netanyahu is no Moses.

More importantly Netanyahu completely disagreed with any suggestion that Obama is not engaged and focused on Isreal. Neocon b.s. 100% rebuffed.

Why can't you let egg whites and yolks stay together?

See, another casualty of gay marriage!

Samsung's still kicking the Apple around...

Apple sold an estimated 28.94 million iPhones compared to 19.63 million in the same quarter last year, while Samsung’s end-user sales climbed to 90.43 million mobile phones from 69.83 million in the second quarter of 2011.…

Someone at Slog did that egg yolk thing a week or two ago. Thanks anyway.

I doubt that egg trick will work on a store-bought egg here in the States. First of all, for the yolk to be that firm, it has to be a pretty fresh egg. Additionally, I would be surprised if hormones and antibiotics don't weaken the structure of the yolk as well.

The first time I saw a pro chef separating eggs by pouring them into his hand and holding the yolk with his fingers, I felt like quite the idiot. Then, I went home and realised that I'd have to get serious about buying fresh eggs to have firm enough yolks to do his trick.
