Blood On The Ground, Crazy In The Heart
At post time, reports of as many as twenty people shot in San Bernardino, California. No other details of how many shooters, although CNN reports twelve dead. So far.
I hate having to repeat this fucking post on Twitter several times a year.
It’s time now to pop it to this post:
Do You Have This Wicked Urge To Go Shoot Many People? I Have Some Advice For You.

What the British are really laughing about
In this elite culture not all corruption is financial. When it comes to the top of British politics, sound character and a clean record do not make you an asset. You’ll have a hard time joining unless they can confirm that you are scum – and can make sure that the public don’t know about it.

A 260-sq. foot apartment built from Legos in the middle of a park full of homeless people across the street from a mental hospital rents for $2000 a month here. (This is a block from Stately Beat Manor, BTW.)

The West Began In Greece …
No China Tablet News. Miscellany.
First, some tech.
This is not good:
Keyboard vulnerability may have put millions of Samsung devices at risk
This is a dilemma for users because even if they don’t use SwiftKey as the default keyboard it can’t be uninstalled from the device and Welton says that it can still be exploited even when it’s not the default keyboard.
This sounds like the death of the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3:
Specifications accompany the pictures, the Galaxy A8 is said to be powered by an octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 processor with 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage with microSD card slot, a 5.7-inch Super AMOLED 1920×1020 pixel resolution display, 16-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front camera, fingerprint reader in the home button, 4G LTE support and a 3,050mAh battery. It will run Android 5.1.1 straight out of the box.
