Someone's having a shitty day.   ;D

Quote
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.

I'm not sure that "daring" is the right adjective here.

Personally, I like their Mandarin Orange Chicken very much.

I wonder what the payout will be?

Woman calls 911. Says son is an EDP & is going crazy.
NYPD arrives.
They spot a man, jump on him and use the Taser 3 times.
They put him in an ambulance and get the woman who called.
Woman looks in the ambulance.
Says ‘That's not my son’.

Yikes, solid payout indeed!!

Similar thing happened in Calgary about, 2 years ago now?  Perhaps 3?

Man with a knife was at NorthHill mall, I believe causing a disturbance at one of the entrances.  No clear signs of mental problems, but a s**tbag who I think was escorted out of the mall by security.

Police called.

Police showed up, jumped on a guy walking to the Safeway who fit the description.  Broke his shoulder, think perhaps fractured his wrist.

Turns out...not even close to being the right guy.  Just happened to fit a similar description, and was walking nearby at the wrong time.

'This won't catch on in Scotland!' Canadian company which makes protein chocolate called SHYTE sends Brits into hysterics
SHYTE - which stands for Seriously Helps You To Energize - makes protein bars
Twitter user Roy Isserlis has made the brand viral after spotting the rude name
The name is very similarly spelled to the British vulgar slang term for poo

By Imogen Blake For Mailonline

Published: 05:36 EDT, 20 April 2018  | Updated: 05:41 EDT, 20 April 2018

A Canadian company may want to re-brand after Scots were sent into hysterics by its very rude name.

A cheeky Twitter user spotted that there is a manufacturer called SHYTE across the pond which makes protein-packed chocolate bars for gym lovers.

The unfortunate acronym stands for 'Seriously Helps You To Energize' - but in the UK of course, the name is pronounced the same way as the slang for excrement, mostly used by Scots.

The company's inappropriate name quickly went viral, especially as the brand was urging people to use the unintentionally rude hashtag: #EATSHYTE.

Damned racoons got into them.

Quote of the day, "“The City and the FDNY did the right thing. People who hate Jews should not be trusted to save them from fires. Good luck to the community where he’s re-assigned.”

The Jewish community in Brooklyn was outraged when they learned that a New York City Firefighter with a history of being an open anti-semite and racist had been assigned to a Borough Park station. So they drove him out of town.
https://www.theyeshivaworld.com/news/general/1510072/victorious-anti-semitic-firefighter-smoked-out-from-fdny-boro-park-assignment.html

QUOTE

Joseph M. Cxxxxx, 28, who once tweeted “I like Jews about as much as Hitler”, also wrote: “Getting sick of picking up all these Obama lovers and taking them to the hospital because their medicare pays for an ambulance and not a cab.” On Martin Luther King Day in 2013 he tweeted, “MLK could go kick rocks for all I care, but thanks for the time and a half today.”

Joseph M. Cxxxxx, 28, the son of former FDNY Commissioner Salvatore Cxxxxx, graduated from the Fire Academy last week and was assigned to Engine 247 on 60th Street. The younger Cxxxxx had resigned his job as an FDNY Emergency Medical Technician in 2013 after Tweeting racist and hateful comments about Blacks and Jews.

Baby swallows a battery.
9-1-1 is called.
"He will poop it out. No hospital." - Paramedics
...time goes by.
Living tissue around the battery died, he required multiple surgeries and has permanent injuries.
Medical bills topped $1.6 million.
Paramedics were "retrained"
Taxpayers will pay $475,000.

Doesn't say, but I wonder if they called around shift-change.

Not trying to be a douche; honest.
I mean, this has come up several  times before, but why don't you start a stand-alone first responder/ambulance stories thread?

Actually, there are enough of us here that work in emergency services (even if it's military emergency services, i.e. military police) - some stories from the domestic front line might be pretty fun to hear about =)

If you have the right partner, doing good work together is the most fun you will ever have in your life.  :)

The Radio Chatter banner reads: "Off topic discussions not relating to the Canadian Army."

But, if 9-1-1 calls ( of the WTF variety ) are too off-topic for Radio Chatter, we can use the Emergency Services forum.

My initial point was that posts being made to a level considered spamming is excessive; not every-other thread must include "once, when I was an ambulance driver..."

But now that you have pointed it out, if there's already an Emergency Services forum, you would think a Mod would point out that "we already have a thread on that topic; for convenience and orderliness please post there."

That way, these posts be more easy to find for those interested... or ignore, for those so inclined (much like I ignore recruiting topics, which even though they're actually relevant to the military, I have no interest). Posting here, under WTF News, people will look in to find what the latest "WTF" is.... only to see, "Oh that, again ."

You are of course, free to do as you see fit.

"once, when I was an ambulance driver..."

I've met a few people who call Paramedics "ambulance drivers".

I just assume they may not know the qualifications required to even apply  to become an "ambulance driver" in Ontario.

The least of which is a two-year college diploma,

But now that you have pointed it out, if there's already an Emergency Services forum, you would think a Mod would point out that "we already have a thread on that topic; for convenience and orderliness please post there."

As I said to you yesterday, going forward, WTF 9-1-1 will be in the Emergency Services forum. Rather than WTF Radio Chatter.

There is a solution.  Go to https://army.ca/forums/index.php?action=profile;area=summary;u=16095  On the left margin look under "Modify Profile".  Select "Buddies/Ignore List".  Then click "Edit Ignore List".  Then the rest is self evident, have at it.

Or you can do as I do.  Live with it.  The same as I do with a very small number of the posters on this means whose occasional activity makes me shake my head and worry for the future of mankind.  I do have some set to ignore and I have not felt a loss by not reading anything they may have posted.  There are very few on this means that I would judge as providing wise, well structured and relevant comment in most of their posts (I'm definitely not in that fraternity), but not everyone can be ERC.
