The Alnwick Poison Garden is pretty much what you’d think it is: a garden full of plants that can kill you (among many other things). Some of the plants are so dangerous that they have to be kept behind bars. [x]
Today’s back cover of El Pais, the largest newspaper in Spain and one of the biggest in the world!
The headline says “These laws are meant to scare citizens.”
HUGE coverage of the Spanish translation of Green Is The New Red, civil liberties being threatened by corporations, and critical attention to a new law in Spain criminalizing protest!
Specialized pressures Canadian bike shop to change name
US bicycle company pursues trademark violation of “Roubaix”
A small bike shop in Cochrane, Alberta, Canada has recently been threatened with legal action by US bicycle manufacturer Specialized regarding a trademark violation concerning the shop’s name. The Calgary Herald reported today that Dan Richter, owner of the Cafe Roubaix Bicycle Studio, received a letter from lawyers representing Specialized demanding he change his business’s name because the bicycle company owns the trademark of the word “Roubaix”, a model of bicycle in the company’s line.
This is official The Church Of Cycling will now be boycotting Specialized!
Big S at it again.

Right, so I had a bit of a moment at Gillian Anderson.

Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid icon who emerged as South Africa’s first black President after spending 27 years as a political prisoner, passed away at the age of 95.
While human beings around the planet Earth mourned the loss of a hero, the vile repugnant slime monsters, whom also go by aliases such as "Conservatives," "Republicans," and the "Right Wing" had a different outlook on the passing of a man who changed a nation and inspired a world…
Don’t forget: President Ronald Reagan too thought Nelson Mandela was a terrorist commie. However, as usual, upon realizing history found them on the wrong side at the time, the right wing is now trying to co-opt Nelson Mandela and act as if they were always behind him.
Over on Ted Cruz’s official Facebook page, a post went up in remembrance of Nelson Mandela. However, while the professional right tries to fix their image, the Republican base is more than happy to pull back the curtain and show how true Conservative ‘patriots’ feel about Nelson Mandela…
From the GOP’s official Facebook page, comments left on their Nelson Mandela in memory of post:
On Reason.com’s Facebook post, because don’t let Libertarianism fool you into pretending Libertarians are anything anything but right wingers with a “hipster” look to appeal to younger people:
And of course, how can any good Conservative speak of Nelson Mandela without PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA coming to mind! Because, as we all know, Nelson Mandela’s death is all about Obama…
Gotta’ hand it to Shelly for the above comment, she managed to invoke Trayvon Martin in her tweet too!
Did you know that Nelson Mandela died to distract us all from the problems with Obamacare?! Why, let these patriots clue you in!…
However, after all you just saw, I think Fox News contributor Todd Starnes' tweet takes the cake. You see, Todd here was livetweeting President Obama's statement on Nelson Mandela's passing. It seems Obama was a little late to addressing the nation. Todd Starnes was PISSED. How dare Obama disrespect the great Nelson Mandela!…
Todd Starnes must really respect Nelson Mandela, right?
lmao. Check out this tweet from just a year ago where Todd Starnes complains about President Obama…SHOWING NELSON MANDELA SOME RESPECT.
