To anyone who has said that 2016 can’t get any worse, may I respectfully say
Really. I just read that you don’t have to worry about the Orange Peril* having the nuclear codes!
The detonation of atomic bombs over the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in August 1945 resulted in horrific casualties and devastation. The long-term effects of radiation exposure also increased cancer rates in the survivors. But public perception of the rates of cancer and birth defects among survivors and their children is in fact greatly exaggerated when compared to the reality revealed by comprehensive follow-up studies. The reasons for this mismatch and its implications are discussed in a Perspectives review of the Hiroshima/Nagasaki survivor studies published in the August issue of the journal GENETICS, a publication of the Genetics Society of America. [My bad and my bold.]
I mean you and I will probably die, and our surviving children and grandchildren will have high rates of cancer and birth defects, but not nearly as bad as we thought, though.

You guys know that I’m all about news.
You guys also know that I’m all about bathrooms.
Today, I am about bathroom news. Eat your heart out, Fox News!
Today, I am, well, not proud to tell you about this, exactly. Not pleased to tell you about it, exactly, either.
Today I am ummm, well, I’m just gonna tell you that technology has gone straight to the crapper.
Because there is now a gizmo that will tell you when you have to go to the bathroom. In case you didn’t know.
I’m so ashamed that I’ve been doing it the old fashioned way for all this time.
