Reminds me of the old joke where the regiment had to vote whether to repair, or replace.  :)
In any war, there are two tremendous tasks. That of the combat troops is to fight the enemy. That of the supply troops is to furnish all the material to insure victory. The faster and farther the combat troops advance against the foe, the greater becomes the battle of supply. EISENHOWER

Doctors remove cell phone charging cable from man's urinary bladder

Apparently, he also has a history of "accidently" swallowing headphones.   :orly:

Ha - amateurish attempts.

We've had inmates who swallow AA batteries, plastic cutlery, t shirts etc.

Mind you nothing in the bladders...yet.

Words fail me... except maybe eeewwww

Police seize 345,000 used condoms that were cleaned and sold as new

CNN

Just where does someone get 345,000 used condoms? She would have to buy them from someone, brothels likely. So does selling sex not pay enough that they have to resort to used condom sales to make a living?  :facepalm:

I never thought of that.... where does someone source 345,000 USED condoms?  (Rhetorical, I think Dana nailed it)

Goodness gracious...

A heaven sent opportunity for any aspiring Sacred Consultants out there :)

Divinity consultants are designing sacred rituals for corporations and their spiritually depleted employees.

 :rofl:


We had a 'Cherry Headed Conor' bird for a few years as a pet, while growing up.  Kind of like a parrot.  Absolute dick - haven't met many birds that aren't genuine jerks in my experience.

He could talk though.  And one day, out of the blue, he just started calling my dad "Ricky Dicky" and then would LAUGH after.  No idea where he got it from, as my mom didn't chat like that.


Sometimes we'd have company over, and all of a sudden, from the other room, in a loud voice, you'd just hear this bloody bird go "Riiiicccckkkkk!!!"

And then... "Diiiicccckkkkk!!"

And then bird laughter   :rofl: :facepalm:



Still don't like birds.

Wow! Math is racist? Some people have way too much time on their hands



Mathematics association declares math is racist

Barrett Wilson Montreal, QC

 October 3, 2020 2:57 PM

The Mathematical Association of America released a statement Friday claiming both that mathematicians should engage in “uncomfortable conversations” about race, and that policies of from the Trump administration, like the lack of a mask mandate in the United States, are somehow an affront to mathematics. The group concludes with a call for a “pursuit of justice” within math.

Just posted this here so I didn't start a new thread   ;D

For those of you who don't know, every year the veterans at Black Rifle Coffee Company do a halloween short, Christmas short, etc etc.  All of the 'actors' in their films are disabled US veterans (although you'd never know it) and most were discharged after receiving impressive commendations  :nod:

The founder of the company, Matt Best - is a former US Army SOF guy who did some CIA contracting afterwards.  He's done some pretty good interviews on various podcasts, seems to be a pretty down to earth guy.



Just thought I'd post in the spirit of spooky season.  Enjoy  :)

Yup. They also brought us this gem:

Quote
"Across the decade from 2009 to 2019, the imprisonment rate fell 29 percent among black residents, 24 percent among Hispanic residents and 12 percent among white residents. In 2019, the imprisonment rate of black residents was the lowest it has been in 30 years, since 1989,"

While the report doesn't attribute any particular cause to the significant drop in incarceration rates, it is possible that it is due to the First Step Act, a bipartisan effort spearheaded by President Donald Trump.

Clearly way better than the lamestream media, and untainted by math.....

Where do you find these things? Who are your friends when you're not on this site?

I sometimes worry a bit about what you come up with.

I really don't care for these A-F people at all and I've just watched two Qanon Bubbas and other southern denizens in Borat's latest movie (gross out alert - fast forward through the debutante's ball - you won't miss any part of the plot)

Dude.... I did a History degree at SFU and took 'Women's History' in 4th year. It was fascinating, and armed me with a whole new range of social science weaponry that I had no idea existed before. I strongly recommend it to any young, privileged, Caucasian, military minded male who really wants to 'feel the burn' from their classmates :)

And this stuff is always fun to trot out when I happen to find myself in the company of many of the self-described 'leaders of disadvantaged communities' that tend to inhabit the West Coast these days.

The one thing I really liked about extremist feminism is that it's DEFINITELY not about being a victim :)

It certainly isn't. My son-in-law's sister-in-law fell into that category. She's now a professor at Regina University and has gone beyond her feminist studies to a broader social and cultural history field. Her biography states that she "approaches the past from a materialist and intersectional perspective." ??? We get along, okay when we see each other every three or four years. I don't talk much. I tend to elicit rage in others fairly easily in certain situations.

I hate it when they institutionalize identitarian political struggles, conflating the political with the academic and late modern forms of disciplinarity :)

That was a good read, DnB. At least some intellectual rigour somewhere in the WS machine.  How long does Professor Brown have before she shows up in a dumpster somewhere?  What was the peers’ reaction to what some would see as a betrayal to the cause?

Well, since she mentioned that one of the challenges with the Women's Studies program is that it is perceived to 'create victims', I can only assume they've already burned her at the stake ;)
