We have a lot of long standing problems. Racism? Yes. Police misconduct and brutality? Sure.

The thing is that we also have a problem with people being completely unwilling to examine evidence or objectively look at a situation before acting like an animal. I have not heard any reasonable argument made by anyone as to why Darrin Wilson should be charged with anything but that doesn't mean millions of people don't disagree, mostly for reasons they are unable to articulate.

Politics lately here is dead, and thats good. There is little good to talk about and nobody to talk with. At least I'll get some more work done.

Talk about guilt or innocence of the officers? We have almost no information so how can we do that? Of course that doesn't stop many people from doing so but it's not interesting to me.

Canada could soon force all airlines serving their country to have a French speaking crew member aboard - after a passenger complained he was served the 'wrong lemonade'.

French language 'extremist' Michael Thibodeau sued Air Canada after he was given a Sprite instead of 7Up by an English speaking stewardess.

He branded the airline's employees as 'malicious, oppressive and reprehensible' for not answering his questions in French during the 2009 flight, despite the fact he's a fluent English speaker.

The legal action has now inspired Canadian MP Stephane Dion to lodge a bill in parliament demanding that all flights to and from bilingual Canada have a French speaker on board.

He said: "Being able to order 7Up in French on a plane is a fundamental right in Canada and all Canadians should be able to sue the airlines if this is not the case."

He is calling for the Official Languages Act - which ensures French and English are given equal status - to extend the rules to all international flights serving Canada.

Mr Thibodeau was initially awarded £8,000 in damages in 2010, but Air Canada appealed and the ruling was overturned.

He then took his case to the Canadian Supreme Court, where judges ruled that the Official Languages Act does not allow citizens to sue for cash damages for being spoken to in the wrong language.

Instead, the airline was only ordered to apologise to the couple and ensure the Languages Act was respected in future.

Mr Thibodeau had also filed a similar language complaint against Ottawa's bus company in 2002 after a driver greeted him with 'hello' instead of 'bonjour'.

Dear God what is wrong with people....although the bonus is that women typically broke off their relationships because he was cheating, not because of THIS...

A woman said she met Philip Hansen on an internet dating site and they had sex at her home. The first time they had sex he started pushing on one of her front teeth that was slightly darker than the rest.

During a sexual encounter in his car, Hansen suddenly had a pair of pliers and put it on her tooth, moving it backward and forwards before she heard the tooth crack.

Hansen, 56, (of Wellington, NZ) has pleaded not guilty to 11 charges of wounding with intent to injure four women by extracting their teeth with pliers or attempting to with a screwdriver wiggling their teeth or cutting their toes and unlawful sexual connection.

The charges cover different dates between 1988 and 2011 in various places in the Hutt Valley.

On a visit to a friend's house he tried to use pliers again, wiggling a tooth.

Hansen got angry after a phone call from the woman's family member and told her he had some rules, like he got sex when he wanted it and she was to have no contact with her family. She told him she could not live with that.

He woke her that night in a headlock with a hand in her mouth, pushing and pulling at her teeth.

A third woman gave evidence earlier said she was not allowed to wear her false teeth in the house with him. Sometimes he would take them out for her.

She said she had also met Hansen on an internet dating sight and he had been happy she already had false teeth, telling her she looked better without them and was beautiful.

He had asked her if she had false teeth and when she admitted she did, he told her he liked "gummy women."

Weeks after they had met, she asked him to cut her toenails when she had a bad back.

He cut the nails so short that they bled and were sore for weeks.

Hansen threw her out after he found out she had used his computer and seen that he was talking to other women.

"Unfortunately, everything in the good ol' USA is about money and race."

It must suck to live life with that kind of a chip on your shoulder. Certain present and former fora participants (of the darker skinned persuasion) spend/spent much of their time saying much the same, and I wondered how much of what they experience is racism vs reaction to their shitty attitude vs someone who is just a jerk.

Certainly sometimes you can tell. This may come as a shock to you but sometimes white people get treated horribly too. If a black person is nasty to me, are they racist? Maybe. Maybe they are nasty to everyone? Maybe their plus one kicked them the balls that morning and they ain't lovin' life right now. Who the hell knows.

But coming up with the reflexive knee-jerk response that racism is at the core of almost all negative interactions between people of different races is short-sighted and for the mentally lazy.

Use of the property manager severely hampers the profitability of the house as a rental but when I consider the cost vs the hassle it is not worth it. Basically the rent brings in 110% of the fixed costs so when variable costs are added it will mostly be a wash.

But - the renters are essentially buying a house for us. Over time it makes a sizable chunk of change this way - tax free, since we are paying taxes only on the near-zero income (plus probably some capital gains when we sell).

Well I'm not sure how you can quantitatively compare two different kinds of "not nice", but your point is taken - mocking people, in general, is not nice, and practically all of us are guilty of it to some extent.

Although, I'm not sure if I've ever seen anyone say that anyone isn't hot enough to be a swinger. Maybe not interesting at all to the person in question, to the point of total non-niceness, but not "shouldn't be a swinger."

As for judging - everyone does. We generally only call it "judging" when we don't like what we are hearing.

Methinks I am not as familiar with the story of the visit as I thought I was. I can never keep the minutes of these adventures straight... argh.

My only reason to bring such a thing up is that while I am a full-on atheist myself, I generally frown upon mockery of others' beliefs, no matter how ridiculous I feel they are. That said, people can mock all they like, I just won't think it's very nice.

People often have an odd double standard in this respect. Mocking Christianity is for the most part tolerated and even in vogue, in some circles, while it's culturally insensitive to mock any others.

Btw the complainants lawyers are basing their complaint solely on the deception. No claim is made of force, injury, or other crime. Simply "not the guy in the pictures."

Taken directly from the complaints

"a man of around 65 with glasses, balding and all wrinkly. He didn't correspond at all to the photo. I felt total disgust."

"he didn't want me to take off the blindfold. When I insisted, he got angry. I ended up seeing his silhouette in the dark. He was old, pot-bellied with a big nose. I told him: 'It wasn't you in the photo.' He said: 'No, but I had grown fond of you and was afraid to admit it.' I left in disgust."

So let me ask a question which is likely to provoke a strong reaction from some people....

Suppose someone posts a fake pic of a model on a dating website and invites people to have sex with them in the dark - sight unseen. Some people take the person up on the offer and discover later that the pics were fake and they had been duped into fucking an ugly person.

Where does this land for you, legally? Is this a rape or is the alleged victim putting themselves, knowingly, into an extremely high risk situation of anonymous sex with a total stranger?

SAGUENAY, Quebec, May 1 (UPI) -- A Quebec lawyer says police overreacted when they issued a $122 ticket to a 91-year-old woman for making too much noise with her rocking chair.
Lawyer Charles Cantin said the Saguenay woman's downstairs neighbor complained to police April 17 about the noise from the woman's TV and rocking chair. Officers responded by issuing the ticket.

Cantin said it was "embarrassing" how officers handled the situation and he alleged they used unnecessary intimidation against the woman.

"I don't think it's a good way to settle that matter," Cantin told CBC News.

The lawyer said he is trying to find a way to have the fine overturned.

Once upon a time I was working on a potential tuberculosis drug. It was a 2-shot dosage, 3-weeks apart, that cleared active TB in 4-5 weeks. Very effective. Normal TB regimens involve quarantines of 6 months or more.

Downside : this shit was BLUE. The most powerful blue dye you ever saw. It turned everything it touched blue - lab coats, my fingers, no matter how careful you were the stuff got everywhere, blue-ifying the world.

Same went with every test subject. Their skin, eyeballs, everything. Blue as a Smurf. Maybe even blue-r. It cleared around 3 weeks after the last shot, and I thought that while not exactly a pleasant side effect, it was temporary and was a fair trade-off if it meant 6 weeks of treatment instead of 6 months.

Nobody else agreed with me. The drug was abandoned. I was so disappointed. TB is so fucking difficult to treat. Who the hell cares if you're blue for a few weeks? You're quarantined anyways....

"Anyone white who's applauding Graham's moment of desperation, along with the white media figures who are hyping her 'heroism,' is essentially justifying police brutality, and saying the only way to control black kids is to beat the s--- out of them," Joan Walsh wrote in Salon.

"Why is America celebrating the beating of a black child?" Stacey Patton wrote in the Washington Post. "It's not surprising that a black mother in Baltimore who chased down, cursed and beat her 16-year-old son in the middle of a riot has been called a hero. In this country, when black mothers fulfill stereotypes of mammies, angry and thwarting resistance to a system designed to kill their children, they get praised."

I won't be doing any dick crossing but I will attempt to tie it in a knot if it helps.

Good luck.

Many times, I've gone over the details in here about the time lag between crude oil price fluctuations and pump price fluctuations, profit margins, refining and delivery costs etc. The industry is extremely transparent because congress readily gives them public colonoscopies to satisfy the ignorant masses who have no understanding of how commodity pricing works.

Sorry about the attitude, but I find this topic tiresome.

"I’ve made it very clear that I work with the police, and instructed them to do everything that they could to make sure that the protesters could exercise their right to free speech.

It’s a very delicate balancing act because while we tried to make sure they were protected from the cars and the other things that were going on, we gave those who wished to destroy space to do that, as well. And we worked very hard to keep that balance and to put ourselves in the best position to deescalate. And that’s what you saw."

- Baltimore mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake

Gave space to those who wish to destroy? Ooooooooo-K then....

A side effect of my narcolepsy meds is bruxism (teeth grinding). Common also to meth addicts for much the same reason.

I fractured two molars in the night requiring extensive work to restore my teeth :( I am off the meds for years now so everything's cool. I wish I had been put on a night guard years ago.

p.s. My teeth are perfectly fine now, fyi....

Sponsors include Ex-Lax, Charmin, Poo-Pourri and Huggies.

Sales of Mississippi Mud ice cream at the Expo were disappointing.

I'd expect to see some politicians there, hoping to stock up on material. Sort of a Sam's Club of bullshit.

(April 25, 2015) — Entries are piling up for a slogan contest being held this year by the North American Manure Expo.

The trade show, now in its 13th year, showcases the latest technology in manure handling, treatment and application. It’s being held in July in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.

An official event slogan has already been settled on: “2015 Manure Expo: Manure than you can Handle!” It will appear on the front of a T-shirt.

But contestants are vying to land a spot on the back of the T-shirt, which event organizers say will display 10 of the “crappiest” also-rans. Writers of the 10 alternate slogans get a free T-shirt.

Many entries, predictably, contain a vulgar substitute for “manure.”

Here are 10 entries from the approximately 200 that were submitted:

—Manure Expo, where nobody stands behind their product.

—You provide the creek. We provide the paddle.

—Keep your friends close, and your manure further.

—The future of what’s left behind!

—We do doo. Do you?

—Manure Happens (to be Nutritious!)

—Been there, Spread that … @ the North American Manure Expo

—Proud survivor of North American Manure Expo … It got deep.

—Heaping piles of fun!

—North American crap shoot.

OK. Just letting you know that that resource is sort of a "nuclear option" for obscure journals or difficult to access publications. Once in a while we had to resort to it in my previous career.

"just plain stupid, i guess! "

The entirety of a message from a single guy with no pics in Ohio, which is the triple crown of people who should not be writing to us.

Presumably his message is in response to a line in our profile asking if such people who write to us anyway are not reading our profile or are just stupid.

How quickly do you need it?

We use to use NRC's (not to be confused with the American instituation of the same name) system out of Ottawa. The last time I ordered one their collection was second only to the Library of Congress but is much easier to access and then will send you a pdf within 24 hours for $40 or something. I can get you a link.

Watching one of the best hitters in our league chase my slider for strike 3, and then have him whiff on a high fastball for another K three innings later.

Even though we lost I pitched what I felt was my best game this year. I had almost no issues with control, my fastball was hot and my recently acquired slider was a huge success. The umpire hosed me on a couple of pitches but such is normal for this guy.

HT: our cat long ago learned that she is allowed to sit *at* the table (on a chair, eye level just above the table) but not allowed to touch the table top.

So we eat dinner. And she sits. Joining us, sort of. I fear we do not have her for much longer. We will miss her.

Just like sometimes humans get sick for a few days and then get better, so do other animals. Usually nothing to worry about.

Pica is a series of conditions where people eat "non-food", such as ice, soil, hair, paper, etc. Except in cases of mental illness, it usually is a compulsion brought on by a nutritional deficiency, although what people eat usually doesn't help with the deficiency itself. Mrs, VA used to have anemia issues and was an ice-eater.

I think we are the ones who complicated it. Your child is no more likely to be abducted walking to school now than they were in 1960. In fact, it's actually less. We are churning out a generation of robertians who can't do anything on their own because we are so afraid our precious angels are going to get a boo boo.

Quebec is truly blessed with natural resources and stunning natural beauty, but they have fucked themselves with their language laws. Businesses are forced to change their names (a famous case is when Schwartz's deli had to fight in court to keep the apostrophe) and people sometimes (depending on their jobs) have to apply to written permission to speak English, even in casual conversation. It is illegal for most people to enroll their children in an English school (even if English is their only language). The big companies have moved to Toronto and most English people have left and taken their money with them. I had a job opportunity at Merck in Montreal but turned it down since I would have had the unusual situation where most employees spoke English casually but had to write everything in French to comply with the laws. Fuck that.

They are a "have not" province now, whereas they used to be the richest in the country. They are the most bigoted and unfriendly people I know of. Their consistent mistreatment of Americans, English Canadians, people of any color, and even French Europeans is truly a wonder to behold.

I don't right now but in the past I volunteered as a science tutor for high school students.

I stopped when I tired of their endless background checks which the schools wanted me to pay for and began dictating the terms by which I could do it. They were quite suspicious of my motives and more or less acted like I was more interested in gaining access to high school students than helping anyone. I became quite jaded over the ordeal it became.
