‘Cow on ice’: Finland’s CRASHING debut of world’s first transgender national figure skater all the buzz

Societal reverence for transgenderism and its practitioners isn’t confined to the United States and modern America’s top cultural export has spread like wildfire throughout the western world, notably to Finland where the northern European country proudly featured a 59-year-old man dressed as a woman at the opening ceremony of the European Figure Skating Championships in Espoo this week, drawing much attention on social media.

Jeez what a surprise. The Canadian government supports and promotes racism.

Canada's top taxpayer-funded theater sparks fury by holding 'blacks only' performance of play that BANS white and Asian people from attending
A Canadian theater is planning to mark Black History Month with an exclusive performance for 'Black theatregoers' only
First-ever 'Black Out' night, featuring an all-black performance of the play 'Is God Is' at the Babs Asper Theatre in Ottawa will occur on February 17
897-seat venue will be open exclusively to an 'all-Black identifying audience' with people of other races told to attend the play on any night during its run

If I identify as a Black Californian can I have some of that sweet taxpayer cash?

California’s reparations task force met again on Friday in San Diego with public comment from speakers who urged bold action and for the state to go forward with payments to African Americans as repayment for slavery. After comments by Dr. Shirley Weber, California Secretary of State, one speaker blasted the suggested amount of $223,000 per resident as insufficient.

Reverend Tony Pierce came to the microphone and slammed the idea of limiting the cash payouts to California residents: "There should be no residency requirements for California! We have to encourage our people to come back to California! What better way to encourage our people to come back to California if we have no requirements?"

"How will reparations be paid?" he added. "Immediately!"

The problem with telescopic urinals? They are deadly.


UK Man Dies In Freak 'Telescopic Urinal' Accident

A UK man was crushed to death by a hydraulic 'telescopic' Urinal designed to pop out of the ground for use.

The man, who has not been named, was performing maintenance on the pop-up urinal at Cambridge Circus outside the Palace Theatre, when the hydraulic unit trapped him below street level.

As the Daily Mail reported on Friday, ambulance crews were dispatched at 1:05 p.m. The man was freed earlier in the day but was pronounced dead soon after.

"We're sorry to have to update that, despite the efforts of emergency services, the man who was critically injured in Cambridge Circus was pronounced dead at the scene," a Metropolitan Police spokesman said. "His next of kin have been informed. Cordons remain in place at the location."

How dare you raise the retirement age!!!

Amid national strikes in the energy sector, some workers in France have found a novel way to protest. On Thursday, "Robin Hood" operations – unauthorised by the government – provided free gas and electricity to schools, universities, and low-income households throughout the country.


Among the facilities provided free energy were public sports facilities, daycare centers, public libraries, some small businesses and homes that had been cut off from power.

The “Robin des Bois” operations – named after the English folk hero, Robin Hood – were part of a wider effort to force the government to drop plans to increase the retirement age in France.

Providing free energy was intended to “intensify the balance of power” in favour of striking workers, said Philippe Martinez, secretary-general of the GGT, one of the largest confederations of trade unions in France. “[It’s about] returning energy to those who don’t have it at all because they can’t afford to, and making it free for hospitals and schools.”

Over the years I've done my fair share of deer hunting. I don't think this writer has. Wide Open Spaces needed a quick filler article.

9 ODD THINGS THAT SCARE THE BEJEEZUS OUT OF US WHILE DEER HUNTING

We've all had a run in with something while trying to do some deer hunting that startled us, spooked us, or downright scared the bejeezus out of us when all we wanted to do was to fill the freezer with some fresh venison. But the fact remains that not everyone hunts in mountain lion or grizzly bear country, and not everything that gives us a chill down the spine is something that is necessarily dangerous. On the contrary, some of these things are downright comical, as you will see.

It all begins with the way we prepare for our deer hunt and leads to some of the things that we encounter on our way to and from the woods. As well as we arrange and devise our deer hunting schedule, we still seem to find ourselves at the mercy of things that we just cannot seem to control.

My spookiest moment? It was about 0, 6:15AM dark and a bobcat screeched at me within yards. That was spooky my friend.

Quiet heroes. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Jordan Blake and David Qualls were hard at work Wednesday morning, fixing a garbage disposal in apartment 102 at Timber Knoll Apartments in Moline, when they heard a loud ringing.

The Rent QC workers had no way of knowing when they walked out of the first-floor apartment how important their next steps would be.

Fire was ripping through the two-story, 16-unit apartment building. Fifteen of the units were rented to tenants and the ringing Blake and Qualls heard was smoke detectors, signaling them to rapidly spreading flames. The fire was primarily on the second floor when they walked into a first-floor hallway.

30 I can see where some may argue that the tank is still a centerpiece of modern ground warfare and suggest that we don’t have enough of the most modern variants.

The lesson from the current war is "if you can see it you can kill it". Tanks seem much easier to see then infantry...

Oh and the lesson from the last couple of wars, that the US fought, was either fight to win or don't fight. Sending Americans to die in some 'Stan because you figure the locally 'Stanis will get tired of dying first is stupid.

The bottom line is that we don't want to ship tanks to Ukraine, but Germany refused to ship tanks unless we did. So, we're slow-rolling it.

I don't think much of General Miley, but he has apparently identified our two leading goals in Ukraine as:

1) Avoid direct combat between NATO and Russia; and

2) Limit the conflict to the territory of Ukraine.

Both goals I heartily endorse.

Saw the report on his illegal seizure by the Nevada State Police (or whatever their name was at the time) and it was sickening to see this military veteran treated so poorly. The penalty assessed in Lara's favor needs to be high enough to ensure this sort of civil rights violation never occurs again, in Nevada or any other state.

She was in the later seasons (7-8, I think?). IIRC, she was a cop or federal agent who was first skeptical of Jack's interrogation methods, then started trying to outdo him on that front, then they briefly had a fling and then she got killed. Something like that, I think.

83 The Economist magazine has a bright, chirpy, uplifting article about - er, destroying books.

It's paywalled but you can read the beginning:

At a recycling plant on the outskirts of Kyiv, a short drive from the site of a helicopter crash that killed 14 people (including Ukraine’s interior minister) a week earlier, a group of sorters, most of them middle-aged women, are ripping apart hundreds of Russian books. The cover of Tolstoy’s “Childhood, Boyhood and Youth”, days away from being reborn as a coffee-cup sleeve or an egg carton, goes into one garbage bag. The novel’s pages, destined to end up as paper for other books, in Ukrainian, or as cheap toilet-paper, go into another. Next comes a selection of poems by Mayakovsky. Then a Soviet physics textbook. Then biographies of Pushkin and Dostoevsky. And so on.

Destroying Tolstoy, Pushkin, and Dostoevsky.

Maybe they can have big bonfires that they can throw the books into as well!

Right now we know the rates of cancer deaths among the clot shotted are way up.

It isn't just "people not going in for checkups" because the non clot shotted aren't dying at the same clip.

Of course any potential cancer could have been fatal sans the clot shot.

Amusingly this is the inverse of the whole argument for the clot shot - get the clot shot and you'll be less like to die of COVID. That looks...nominal at best. But we know the odds of dying go up when you take it so the US should be following Europe's path and banning it now.

BTW, the destruction of Russian literature in Ukraine is described as "Another failure for Vladimir Putin".

But not to worry, The Economist assures us that:

"Millions of Ukrainians continue to speak Russian without suffering discrimination."

Of course. The fact that you are fined if you speak Russian on Ukrainian television (as happened to the mayor of Kharkov when he briefly spoke in Russian at a telethon); that the use of Russian as a language of instruction is now completely banned in all Ukrainian schools and universities; and as is apparent, that Ukraine intends to eliminate Russian culture from Ukraine - none of this would indicate that Russian-speaking Ukrainians will be discriminated against.

One morning I awoke from my nap and saw a rather large hog staring at me from about ten feet away. I jumped up and ran in one direction as it ran in the other. Called it a morning.

In my opinion, it had a few problems. The breakneck pace could get very wearing. The love of the plot twist got really old. It tended toward a nihilism and hopelessness. The desire to shock you also wore.

But with COVID we have massive increases in death rates. And the official media response is...crickets.

430 I already planned and paid for my funeral. I get a casket, embalming, a plot with a vault, a funeral Mass, the whole shebang. I told my brothers and sisters. I even put the funeral home business card on my refrigerator in case I die unexpectedly and they forgot. I paid for that funeral, and I want to make sure I get it. They're expensive by the way.

BTW, for any skywatchers, Mercury is going to reach it's maximum western elongation in a few hours at 9:05 Zulu, 4:05AM EST.

This presents the best opportunity to see it right before sunrise. Unfortunately for me here, it's going be raining all day. I've never been able to see Mercury anyway. Damn tree lines just cover it up and it gets too bright before it's high enough over the tree line.

The Bad Cat used this analogy, the foxhole vs the bunker. You're much safer in the bunker than the foxhole, but to get to the bunker, you've got to crawl out of the foxhole and run under fire to the bunker.

1. I don't go to plays. Not since going to some Shakespeare effort in high school, anyway.

2. Working assumption is that this play is a barnsmeller, so if (1.) was not the case, I'd be disinclined to go, anyway.

3. It's in Toronto, which is a shithole, so even if 1 and 2 were not the case, I wouldn't go anyway.

So I can't boycott this play anymore than I can boycott Tampax.

Back then, kids were a source of entertainment that would get parents arrested today.

To whit: I was about 3 or 4. We were vising my great-uncle's farm in Maryland. He grew corn and had a large herd of milk cows. He also had a duck pond for fish and migratory fowl. When we visited one winter, we were able to 'skate' in our shoes across the ice. But this one time it was summer. The pond had a small dock. I was on the dock with my Dad and some other people. My Dad just decided to pick me up and drop me in the water. At the time, I could barely dog paddle. So as I'm sinking under this pea soup-colored water, I thought to myself, down is dark, up is light. So I struggled mightily to get to the surface. When I broke the surface and gasped my Dad, still standing on the dock, had a good laugh.

I really did have a 'sink or swim' lesson as a child.

After typing my comment, I came to the realization that that is probably why I never was involved in horse play in water, be it pool, ocean, lake or river. I'd play of course, but I never did 'horseplay', like dunking people, holding them underwater, pulling them under, etc. I enjoyed just lazily swimming the sidestroke and porpoising, diving down to hold my breath for as long as possible. But I guess I never wanted to scare anyone in the water like I was scared that one time.

When I got to Schofield Barracks, I had to jump from the ten meter board with full battle rattle and tread water for what seemed to be an eternity.

I wonder if soldiers stationed in Hawaii still have to go through that.

There's an episode of The Fugitive running on MeTV, 1964. Young Opie is in it. This was contemporaneous with his stint on Andy Griffith.

Yeah, but nowdays, they B.J. their battle buddy and try to use them as an inflated swim bladder.

Doesn't work, many drown, but the Army achieves its' quota of B.J.s in the Cause of Duty.

607 I'd play of course, but I never did 'horseplay', like dunking people, holding them underwater, pulling them under, etc.

Same here, RickZ.

My older bro enjoyed dunking me until I was gasping for breath. I hated swimming with him but we weren't allowed to swim alone.

It was all I could do to work out of the ropes and gnaw through the gunny sack.

But I did learn to swim with an anvil tied to my ankles.

Damn anvil. Uphill both ways to school and back, in the snow. And only one anvil, the other, I had to go barefoot. In the snow. Uphill. To School. Both ways!

Let me larn you: Wiley Coyote has lots of anvils so you could have gotten a second one from him. Also he's very experienced in carrying/manipulating anvils and he could have helped you there.

Good thing I'm not a kiddy diddler, and would gladly kill those who are.

Hell, at my age, "abusing the youth" would be me illicitly dating a 40 y/o lass?

And though I believe your language was accidental there (and so, I'll forgive), imply again that I were a kiddy diddler, and I shall hunt you down, with all that implies. I'm serious. NEVER infer that and me in the same breath, ever again. Capiche?

615 SMH,
Would love you to shed your thoughts on the 31 tanks this junta is giving to the Ukraine. Is the diff between the 1 & the 2 just the "classified" reactive armor, or more?

Yes.

617 The fire control systems are different.

And there's the M1A3, the most advanced version, that was just getting fielded in '08.

It will really be a hoot if those get sent to Ukraine.

638 >After typing my comment, I came to the realization that that is probably why I never was involved in horse play in water, be it pool, ocean, lake or river. I'd play of course, but I never did 'horseplay', like dunking people, holding them underwater, pulling them under, etc. I enjoyed just lazily swimming the sidestroke and porpoising, diving down to hold my breath for as long as possible. But I guess I never wanted to scare anyone in the water like I was scared that one time.

At some huge waterpark pool event my softball coach (me ten, him maybe 20) held me down, and I wondered if he was drowning me, since it didn't seem playful or funny. I did not panic, but I wondered if he was surrounded by people who were unconcerned with the horseplay.
