Happy Birthday Nikola Tesla!



Today would have been Nikola Tesla's 370th* birthday.



Probably the best introduction to the gent is from The Oatmeal.
Click and read it - it's fun.



(Although he was a certifiable genius, and was screwed over by Edison, he was also a bit of a creep, too.)




He also may have made Mark Twain poop in his white linen suit.










* Possibly. There is some speculation that he was a time-traveler.




Tonight's PRESHOW Q (here AND the FB page):





What quality do both Nikola Tesla and Sesame Street's jaundiced, mopey Muppet Bert share?

Welcome to the Dog Days of Summer - Cool off with Trivia @Barmacy!

Today is July 3.


According to the Old Farmer's Almanac, that's the start of the Dog Days of summer.





Traditionally, it's a span of 40 days that are usually the hottest days of summer.


It can be traced back to the writings of the Venerable Bede.


Tonight's PRESHOW Q (here AND the FB page):



What is the name and breed of the winner of 2018's World's Ugliest Dog Contest?

Celebrate Ron Swanson and Lawrence v.Texas!

Today is Nick Offerman's birthday.

He's most recognized as Ron Swanson. If you haven't watched Parks & Rec (you should) all you really need to know is here:


That is all.


Tonight's PRESHOW Q (here AND the FB page):

Today is also the anniversary of the Supreme Court decision in Lawrence v. Kansas. What type of laws did this ruling declare unconstitutional?

Celebrate Juneteenth with Trivia @Barmacy!

* * * Remember, we start @ 8pm * * *

So, there's lots of historically significant things that happened on this day.

Porcine orange feline Garfield made his comic strip debut in 1978.
It's Zoe Saldana, Paula Abdul and Salman Rushdie's birthday.



It's also Juneteenth.






You can follow the links here, but the TL/DR version is that it's the celebration of the day (June 19, 1865) that General Gordon Granger publicly read his General Order No. 3. Read the links.


Lee had surrendered to Grant on April 9, and Lincoln was assassinated on April 14, two months before General Granger made his announcement.


Lincoln had issued the Emancipation Proclamation in 1862, to take effect Jan 1, 1863.

The Thirteenth Amendment, finally killing slavery, wasn't officially approved until December of 1865.

You are probably aware of the continuing horror show in the news.




If you would like to do something about it, a good first step is to contact some people who may be able to do something about it.


Ohio has two senators:


Sherrod Brown


You can call his offices:
Washington, DC: (202) 224-2315
Toll Free: 1-888-896-OHIO (6446)
Cincinnati:   (513) 684-1021
Cleveland:   (216) 522-7272
Columbus:   (614) 469-2083
Lorain:        (440) 242-4100





Rob Portman
You can call his offices:
Washington, DC: 202-224-3353
Toll Free: 1-800-205-6446
Cincinnati:   513-684-3265
Cleveland:   216-522-7095
Columbus:   614-469-6774
Toledo:        419-259-3895



You can find your House Congressional Rep here.
It's my zipcode in the link, but you can add your own address for correct information.


It's five minutes out of your day, and could have some impact.
When I called Sen. Portman's office, I was told:
  1. The Senator opposes separating families.
  2. He is speaking out about it.
  3. He is looking at any legislation that is being brought up.
There was no firm commitment to concrete action, but it's a first step.
I need to do more.


Please help the US in 2018 from being uttered in the same breath as Germany in 1938.






Tonight's PRESHOW Q (here AND the FB page):The 13th Amendment to the US Constitution was certified as approved in December of 1865.
What state was the 27th to ratify it, putting the amendment into law?

Celebrate the Love - Trivia Tonight @ 8pm!

***REMEMBER: We now start at 8PM!***

Happy birthday today to the quieter half of They Might Be Giants - John Linell.



It's also Richard Ayoade's birthday. If you've never seen the I.T. Crowd, he's the show's implementation of a brilliant and possibly on the spectrum character. 
Think Sheldon, but funny. (Sorry, Team Bazinga!)



Most importantly, today is Loving Day - a celebration of the anniversary of the Supreme Court's unanimous decision in Loving v. Virginia. This is the court case that threw out US laws prohibiting inter-racial marriage.


It took televised science fiction more than a year to get the memo:

Even then, the famous kiss was the result of coercion and assault by aliens.
(Really.)

Tonight's PRESHOW Q (here AND the FB page):

Loving v. Virginia was cited more than 10 times in what 2015 Supreme Court decision, which opened up marriage equality to all Americans?
