BREAKING: All Democratic Wisconsin State Senators have left the state to avoid orders from State Senate Majority Leader Scott Fitzgerald calling on State Patrol to round up the Senators

From TMJ:

The State Senate has convened in Wisconsin to discuss, debate and possibly vote on Governor Scott Walker’s controversial budget bill, but not all the Senate members are there; all Democrats in the Senate are absent.

Law enforcement officials are looking for at least one Democratic senator to bring in for a quorum required for a fiscal measure, but River Hills Republican Senator Alberta Darling claimed to Newsradio 620 WTMJ that all the Democrats got on one bus and left the state.

As observers in the senate chamber were shouting over the microphoned senators, a roll call was happening with no Senate Democrat in the chambers, and the discussion, debate and vote cannot occur because a 3/5ths quorum cannot be reached.

“The senate is now under a call of the house, and we will try to find the members who decided not to show up for work today.  We will stand informal pending the resolution of the call of the house,” said State Senator Mike Ellis.

A staff member for Senator Lena Taylor (D.-Milwaukee) said that office staffers cannot even leave their office because of the commotion inside the Capitol.

With the Democrats gone, not enough Senators are available for a quorum to vote on the bill.

“We do not have the 3/5th’s” said Ellis to cheers in the crowd.

“We will leave the call of the house on until we receive enough members to continue to do business.  I don’t know how long that will take.”

“Once we have enough people to continue to work, if they’re still in the building, you will hear this bell and the Senate will be reconvened.”

The wait could happen for as long as hours, or even days, until a Democratic senator comes in.

The Senators said they don’t expect to return until next week.

Wow.

LET’S GO WISCONSIN!

Pen & Pixel, a Houston-based company, rose to fame in the ’90s by designing countless covers for Southern labels like Cash Money, No Limit, and Suave House. Their loud, obnoxious, and low-budget/high-content aesthetic abused Photoshop and epitomized rap’s over-the-top opulence as well as its obsession with wealth, exuberance, and war. From Complex Magazine, The 25 Most Ridiculous Pen & Pixel Album Covers of All Time.
This is the cover to #1. Big Bear Doin Thangs (1998) Complex Says: P&P flawlessly integrates their aesthetic with an ursine theme. The shrewd subversion of conventional wealth signifiers in favor of nuts and berries—a bear’s precious resources—provides a stunning undercurrent of neo-Marxist subtext that calls into question the very nature of truth itself. Is this Pen & Pixel’s best cover? Do bears shit in the woods rock shades and smoke cigars? Hell motherfucking yes!

How to measure problem solving skills? A classic way is to place two players in direct competition with each other. Do the players cooperate or stand alone? Do they adjust strategies according to how their adversary plays? It’s a simple and clear way to test cognitive abilities. The epitome of such challenges is The Prisoner’s Dilemma, a battle of wits that uses a tiered reward system to pit two players against each other. The game goes like this: during each round, both players are asked if they want to cooperate or defect against their opponent. If both players cooperate, each player gains 3 points. If one player sells the other out, the winner gets 5 points, while the “sucker” – the player that doesn’t defect – gets zero points. If both defect, they each get 1 point. Clearly, the highest payout for each round is to sell out one’s opponent. Yet if the game is played indefinitely, the key to success is for both players to continually cooperate, picking up 3 points every round. Past experiments hinted that humans are the only species capable of figuring out how to win the game, the only species that can concoct a strategy and suss out an opponent’s.

The PLoS One study, conducted by Duarte Viana and colleagues at the Instituto Gulbenkian de Ciência, Oeiras, Portugal, showed that rats were able to cooperate and adjust tactics depending on the strategy of their opponent, when put in a Prisoner’s Dilemma scenario.
