Mark Zuckerberg warns that there may be violence around this year's elections:

"There is, unfortunately, I think, a heightened risk of civil unrest in the period between voting and a result being called..."

-- Mark Zuckerberg (aka Capt. Obvious)

How do you keep that crystal ball so shiny, Jeane Dixon?

No kidding, Mark. Thanks for that insightful observation.

Let me put it this way: I wouldn't want to be in any major metropolitan area on November 4 this year. If Donald Trump wins re-election by an uncontestable margin, shit is going to break loose as Democrats and left-wingers go apoplectic with rage. If it's a close election? Fuck. Civil War II? I don't even...

This year, I think the best thing for everyone would be for polling stations to hand out free weed instead of "I Voted" stickers. Then whatever the outcome of the election, maybe we'd all be a little more chill about it.
