Perhaps someone took the saying "give them a hand" a little too far.   :nod:

Quote
Horror as 54 severed human hands are found dumped in a bag in Russia amid fears they were taken by black market body part dealers
Gruesome discovery made close to a popular fishing spot in Khabarovsk, Siberia
One hand was found washed up on shore by locals, leading police to the others
Cops don't know who the hands belonged to, when they were removed, or why
One theory says they were removed by body part dealers in order to stop police identifying remains they were trying to sell illegally

Perhaps they are the hands that can be matched to the feet that washed up on the BC coast?

Next guess is what part of the world will other body parts start washing up?

That bag has not washed ashore yet.

I'll put this here because l am sure many folks will be saying WTF at the thought of Crickets as a food source.

I will come clean and admit l purchased some Cricket protein bars and crackers earlier this month, purely out of curiosity.  They were pricey, but l must say they were very tasty.  The starter pack.  I shared them at the office, the majority liked them.

I have had fried cricket with a friend from Central African Republic before and must say that, once you got over the cultural shock it is for us, it was pretty tasty. After all, it's not much different than eating shrimp, crab or lobster when you think about it.

I also like the idea of supporting Canadian companies too.  A segment from Day to listen to if you're so inclined.

United also uses Air Marshall's to forcibly remove passengers, before departure.

I was up front with them.  Honest.  It was more fun watching them try with prior knowledge then by ambush.  Our resident Clearance Diver was especially enthusiastic.   :nod:

HuffPo Editor Brags About Slashing White Authors to Less than 50%, Won’t Fire Herself



Chloe Angyal tweeted, “Our goals for this month were: less than 50% white authors (check!), Asian representation that matches or exceeds the US population (check!), more trans and non-binary authors (check, but I want to do better).”

"less than 50% white authors"

Sounds vaguely familiar,

City of Toronto, Department of Emergency Services

"I also explained that women and visible minorities, once qualified, are placed in their own group and that each class hired would require 50% from that group and 50% from the white male group."

Do the people who come up with these things think that perpetrators live under rocks and never go on social media? 

Perpetrator:  "I'm going to beat the crap out of you and scream profanities while I do it!"

Victim:  "Hold on, do you mind if I order a pizza first?"

Perpetrator:  "Sure, as long as it's not pepperoni, because then I'll know you've really called 911 and are reporting me for possession of a pineapple."
Sure, apes read Nietzsche.  They just don't understand it.

An entire generation has learned to take 9-1-1 for granted. ( Toronto has had it since March 22, 1982. Exactly 36 years ago today. )

But, if calling from a cell phone, and you don't know your location, it can be a struggle to find out where you are.

The good news is that by 2021 they will find you every time - 4 out of 5 times.

On the other hand, today you can order a pizza or Uber with a cell phone app and they will know your exact location.

"We'll be there when you need us." ( Some restrictions may apply. Actual response times may vary. Availability may be limited.  )

In India when the ambulance arrives at a call and the patient cannot be revived the crew just leaves them in the street under the hot sun and goes on to the next call. Did I say India? My bad. I meant Florida.

Vegan activist covers herself in animal dung outside a Trader Joe's to protest the chain's alleged manure-filled living conditions for hens


A daring animal rights activist lay in a pile of manure outside of a San Francisco Trader Joe's to protest the chain’s alleged egg farms conditions.

Cassie King, a student at UC Berkeley, worked with animal rights group Direct Action Everywhere for the stint that turned heads Wednesday morning.
