Think about this shit.

This is the third time the bill has failed, following defeats in 2010 and 2012.
The Paycheck Fairness Act would require employers to disclose payment and demographic information and prevent them from punishing workers who discuss their salaries. It would also allow civil pay discrimination lawsuits to be filed against employers.
Republicans opposed the bill, arguing it would encourage “frivolous” lawsuits and deprive women of workplace flexibility.- MSNBC

Bristol based artist Gareth Wood, aka Fuller, has spent over 500 hours creating a hand-drawn personalised map of the city. The cartographer claims his depiction was inspired by the residents view of the West Country’s capital, seeking to create a psycho-geographical landscape.

The map will be exhibited in a grand unveiling at It’s All 2 Much gallery in Stokes Croft, on the 31st of May

I have recently read about actress and mathematician Hedy Lamarr. You should too. Among her feats:
The invention of the frequency-hopping spread spectrum, a means of transmitting radio signals which is the basis of Wi-Fi and Bluetooth technology.
Stealing a bunch of gold and diamond jewelry from her Nazi husband and and fleeing to Paris disguised as a French maid.
Being the first actress to appear fully nude and depict an orgasm in a movie.
We should all learn about Hedy Lamarr in school.
