The Quotes of The Day

Can Baltimore being any worse of a city? This couple thought so.

Neo-Nazi Couple Arrested For Alleged Plot To 'Completely Destroy'

A neo-Nazi couple was arrested and charged with conspiracy to damage power substations encircling Baltimore City that would "completely destroy" the metro area, according to Department of Justice (DoJ) court documents.

On Monday, DoJ prosecutors announced Florida resident Brandon Clint Russell, an alleged leader of the neo-Nazi terror group Atomwaffen Divison, and Catonsville resident Sarah Beth Clendaniel conspired to destroy power substations with gunfire.

If you are keeping score in the Game of Global Climate Change you might want to use a pencil. For years we've been told we need to cut back on meat as farting and shitting livestock were bad for the environment. Now bullshit and cowshit is good stuff.

The energy industry is turning waste from dairy farms into renewable natural gas – but will it actually reduce emissions?


On an early August afternoon at Pinnacle Dairy, a farm located near the middle of California’s long Central Valley, 1,300 Jersey cows idle in the shade of open-air barns. Above them whir fans the size of satellites, circulating a breeze as the temperature pushes 100F (38C). Underfoot, a wet layer of feces emits a thick stench that hangs in the air. Just a tad unpleasant, the smell represents a potential goldmine.

The energy industry is transforming mounds of manure into a lucrative “carbon negative fuel” capable of powering everything from municipal buses to cargo trucks. To do so, it’s turning to dairy farms, which offer a reliable, long-term supply of the material. Pinnacle is just one of hundreds across the state that have recently sold the rights to their manure to energy producers.

Rightfully concerned brother or just a jerk? The ONT can be the judge, jury and executioner.

Parents want what’s best for their kids, including the name they give their baby. But sometimes it happens that the pursuit of a creative and meaningful name takes it a step too far.

Like it happened for this 23-year-old woman, Hailey, who is pregnant with a baby girl. While Hailey is positive she has her two runner-up names chosen, her older brother is not so convinced. In fact, he fears his sister’s choice of names will make life hard for his niece.

So he confronted Hailey and shared how the situation unfolded in this AITA post.

Not every immigrant has fallen in love with The Big Apple.

What's happening: New York City mayor Eric Adams (D.) is giving immigrant asylum seekers free bus tickets to Canada, and many of them are more than happy to leave the filthy, crime-riddled, Democratic-run city behind in search of a better life. According to the New York Post, the city's migrants are fleeing toward the Canadian border at a rate of hundreds per day.

Adventures in the kitchen.

Searing flames, angry chefs and blood, sweat and tears - that's what I imagined a professional kitchen to look like. Of course, my expectation came from watching far too many series of Hell's Kitchen and MasterChef: The Professionals - so I knew it wasn't entirely accurate. But still, the thought of spending a day in a restaurant kitchen slightly terrified me.

My cooking skills are basic - good enough to whip up a decent dinner, but not superior enough to expect anyone else to actually pay for it. I know my staple pesto pasta certainly wouldn't meet the standards of a head chef. Though thankfully, there was no stern-faced Gordon Ramsey waiting for me at Honest Burgers in Bristol, just Rhys Huntley with a big smile.

Assault Charge For Woman In Poultry Pummel
Cops: Minnesotan, 36, hit beau in head with "a whole chicken"


FEBRUARY 2--A Minnesota woman was jailed yesterday for domestic assault after allegedly clobbering her boyfriend in the head with “a whole chicken,” according to cops who reported that the victim “still had some chicken residue in his hair” when they responded to his 911 call for assistance.

The victim told cops he was driving home last night to the Eagle Lake residence he shares with Natalie Bruemmer, 36, when he was attacked. The man, who had been at a bar with Bruemmer, said she “was hitting him and spitting in his face” as they were en route home.

Upon arriving at their residence, the man alleged, Bruemmer “hit him with a whole chicken in the back of his head,” according to a probable cause statement. “Victim still had some chicken residue in his hair,” police noted.

And if the guy is stupid enough to hang around for a 3rd beating, he'll deserve it.

Translation: FBI set up two retards to shoot substations. Direct order from DNC to find someone on the "right to blame."
They shot nothing, which means they probably were not capable.
They are "neo-Nazi", which may mean anything from having a tiki torch on the porch to keep buds away, to being white.

The solvents used are nonaqueous and may be polar (alcohols) or nonpolar (hydrocarbons, carbon dioxide).[4

Imagery used to tell a story all on it's own is powerful. It is something say Zack Snyder knew. Marvel USED to know it. 300 for Snyder and... I'd pick from Marvel probably the scene of Cap against the entire Thanos army from Endgame (which had other problems, admittedly.)

190 Word to the wise: if your loved one is checking into another facility when they leave the hospital, ALWAYS be sure that you will be arriving at the second facility well before 5:00 pm.

We got to the “skilled nursing facility” (Alzheimer’s home + rehab) at 6:00, and the place had already gone dark. And the crack night staff didn’t have a clue what was going on. Thankfully the nursing director showed up – otherwise, Rebecca and I would be spending the night in a drab, cramped room with no recliner for mama to sleep in.

"If you're part of today's woke revolution, you need to study the part of revolutions where they spin out of control because the revolutionaries get so drunk on their own purifying elixir, they imagine they can reinvent the very nature of human beings," Bill Maher


Maher nails it. The college faculty councils and their brainwashed students and former students believe they can reprogram and suppress human traits that were built-in to us over tens of thousands of years. Yet they do not see that they have failed to reprogram themselves out of tribalism, war on non-believers, and the desire to be the kings of humanity.

At 3:00, it drew an asymmetric fighter. Star Wars has a few of those, like the B-wing. So it did figure out "star wars art style".

Then at 4:35, it just M.C. Eschered five TIE fighter wings onto a mini death star. Derp.

269 Please to identify specific "core American principles" involved.

Hilarious, in a pathetic way. Just glanced at ace's quick hits, the pull quote from French is just astonishingly vapid crap of the sort that - incredibly - people get paid to vomit up, and that voters (far too many) tolerate spilling from the mediocre maws of the political class.

In any case, "principles" are usually a vague abstract level of empty discussion for those unable to think about or discuss actual real policy issues.

270 The summer of love (2020) was bad enough but during the time of the SLA there were a lot of operations against banks and police that were successful. There was a case where an assassin stopped his car on I280, scampered down the embankment to the Ingleside SFPD precinct and killed the night duty officer.
The whole system was under attack. Pretty much like now, except the attackers are now in charge and sitting in positions of high office.

Gastronomically, if you gotta be colonized, have it be by Italy (or France). Great Italian food, incredible espresso, in Eritrea when I was there. And the cultural legacy. Having lunch at a nice little roadside place outside Asmara one day, and a group of local bikers pulls up for their lunch.

Sign on the dotted line, you are in. Welcome to the former US of A.

439 The "black" in the ring was likely Onyx. A stone, not a hardwood.

And my late Dad was a USN recruiter in the L.A. Recruiting Office during the Watts riots.

They had fully loaded Garands leaning in their desks at the height of festivities.

And from our Buena Park apartment, the smoke from the riots was too damn visible to be of comfort.

'70s wasn't Peace Love and Bobby Sherman for those of us too close to it.
