Haven't people been wondering how social media was keeping money, given they constantly operated at a loss?

This sounds like quite the explanation.

Trump apparently wants to name his tax reform plan the "Cut Cut Cut Act"

please make it stop
You serious? This is awesome! He should have every representative and spokesperson call it that, and make them say it really fast without pausing.
The cut part is because it involves guillotines, right?

Finally!! 
id still be happy if it involved razer blades and wrists

The government asked the court to set Manafort's bail at $10 million and Gates at $5 million, and for the court to place Manafort and Gates under home arrest. The two pleaded not guilty.

Science / Re: Tesla's heat engine (split from DDWFTTW)
sterling engine transfers heat from hot to cold plates
putting a fan and a alcahol on the cold plate will not help with conserving energy since it takes energy to cool the alcahol to liquid again

beaming energy into space concept would be similar

but its only increasing its hot/cool differencial energy pools

Donald Trump has blamed a rise in crime in the UK on "radical Islamic terror", despite there being no evidence to support the claim.

In an early morning tweet the President said: "Just out report: 'United Kingdom crime rises 13% annually amid spread of Radical Islamic terror.' Not good, we must keep America safe!"

Even if it were true, what is the connection between US safety and crime in the UK?

Reader comment:

the number of murders in the UK is alarming at 640, in a population of c64m. But then I remembered that the FBI announced, on Sept. 17, Chicago hit 500 homicides this year, from a population of just over 2m.

In embarrassing display, Trump flubs test on how money works

I knew he is an ignorant moron, but I thought he was smarter than this.

He's one of those rare people who managed to lose money running a casino.

With Trump now in the White House, we're starting to get a better sense of why he had so many difficulties in the business world. As The Daily Beast  noted, the president tried to argue last night that he's already managed to shave off a huge chunk of the national debt.

"The country - we took it over and owed over $20 trillion. As you know the last eight years, they borrowed more than it did in the whole history of our country. So they borrowed more than $10 trillion, right? And yet, we picked up $5.2 trillion just in the stock market," Trump told Sean Hannity. "So you could say, in one sense, we're really increasing values. And maybe in a sense, we're reducing debt. But we're very honored by it."

This wasn't just some verbal gaffe. Yesterday afternoon in Harrisburg, during a speech on taxes, he pushed a related point: "Very proudly, just in the stock market alone, we have increased our economic worth by $5.2 trillion, that's right, since Election Day. $5.2 trillion. Think about that, that's a quarter of the $20 trillion that we owe."

This is gibberish. They're the remarks of someone who doesn't know what the national debt is. Or how the nation's finances work. Or even how money works.
Maybe Dave can explain to us morans how an increase in the value of privately owned companies translates into a decrease in the country's debt?   (Maybe Drumpf is going to Nationalize everything?)
