Have you ever heard of a paper map? Apparently not.

Brianna Gomez (@bbriannagomez) recorded the video from her car, visibly shaken. She was apparently driving early Thursday morning, which is when some customers first began experiencing service disruptions. As of Saturday evening, her video had over 5.4 million views.

“Shoutout AT&T outage for getting me lost in the middle of nowhere with no directions/phone service in the middle of the night so i resort to crying for help outside a closed drive thru,” Gomez wrote in the text overlay.


Obviously her shortcomings have to be spread via the world wide web. I wonder if she can even fetch coffee and/or a sammich.

CA professor says being a Swift fan is 'slightly racist,' Chiefs winning Super Bowl is a 'white supremacist conspiracy'

A California professor suggested that it might be racist to be a Taylor Swift fan. The professor, who is no stranger to controversy, made the suggestion after the Kansas City Chiefs' Super Bowl victory over the San Francisco 49ers, according to the New York Post.

Melina Abdullah is a professor of Pan-African Studies at California State University, Los Angeles. She decided to take her views about Taylor Swift to X after the Super Bowl, where she wrote: "Why do I feel like it’s slightly racist to be a Taylor Swift fan?”

Fvcking unserious lunacy.

Embalmers finding thick, rubbery clots in veins and arteries

Strange; fibrous; often long, thick white clots are being extracted from the vascular systems of corpses by embalmers. For an example of what these clots look like, here is a one-minute video of such a clot being extracted by embalmer Richard Hirschmann of Alabama from the jugular vein of a deceased person. Mr. Hirschmann says he has about 250 such pictures on his phone.

British doctor John Campbell recently interviewed retired U.S. Air Force major, engineer, and data analyst Thomas Haviland about an “Embalmer Blood Clot Survey” that Mr. Haviland sent out to 50 National, Regional, and State Funeral Director Associations, each with hundreds of members in the U.S., Canada, Great Britain, Australia, and New Zealand. Mr. Haviland also sent the surveys directly to over 1,700 funeral homes. The surveys asked if, when, and how often the respondents may have encountered these strange, predominantly white clots during their work as embalmers. The astonishing video of that interview is about 48 minutes long and contains images of large, rubbery clots, as well as several graphs of various statistics compiled from the survey responses.

Here are some of the salient points from the interview:

It was fit and proper to call for SCOTUS Associate Stephen Breyer to retire. After all he was a privileged white man. But don't you dare whisper to Associate Justice Sotomayor to step down. She's an aging and unhealthy woman. But, she's a woman and is brown. So she's off limits.

The oldest justices on the court are Clarence Thomas, 74, Samuel Alito, 72, and Sonia Sotomayor, 68, and it's reasonable to expect any, if not all, of them to consider retirement over the next four years. This concern underscores the potential impact of the next presidential term on the composition of the highest court in the land and why Democrats want Sonia Sotomayor to retire while Biden is still in office.

Sotomayor hasn't been on the court very long — Barack Obama nominated her in 2009 — but between the likelihood of Republicans winning back control of the U.S. Senate in November and the presidential election looking extremely favorable to Trump right now, Democrats have been urging her to step down for over a year now.

Recent revelations about her health are giving them added anxiety. According to a recent report from HuffPost, Sotomayor travels with a medic — something no other justice does.

"The revelation comes from newly released U.S. Marshals Service records obtained by the nonpartisan court watchdog Fix the Court, which requested information about security for current and former Supreme Court justices," the outlet reports. "And it amplifies questions that many only whisper about the long-term fitness of the oldest Democratic-appointed justice on the court."

The Microlino Lite is here to make urban SUVs look even dumber

Swiss company Micro — maker of the happy little Microlino electric bubble car — just unveiled a production version of its Microlino Lite at the Geneva Motor Show. With a 45km/h (28mph) top speed, it goes half as fast as the standard Microlino but can be driven by anyone with a moped license from the age of 14 in some European countries. An entry-model will cost CHF149 per month (about €156 or $169) to lease starting this summer.

Although the Microlino Lite is targeting Europe on day one, Micro spokesperson Merlin Ouboter says the Microlino Lite is eligible for registration in the US as a Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (NEV) and hopes to have the first Microlinos there by the end of 2024.

Microcars like the Microlino Lite target urbanites who’d never trade in their full-sized car for an e-bike but are still looking for something more convenient to drive in dense cities with narrow streets. You can fit about three microcars in the same space required to park an SUV and their light weight allows them to consume far less energy than a standard EV. They’re great for city commutes to work, quick trips to the market, dropping a kid off at school, and transporting your pet to the dog park.

The ONT Musical Interlude & Dinner Roll Emporium


Born on this day: 26 Feb 1932
Johnny Cash US country singer, songwriter who was considered one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is remembered as a country icon, his songs spanned other genres including rock and roll and rockabilly and blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal won Cash the rare honour of induction in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and the Gospel Music Hall of Fame. During the last stage of his career, Cash covered songs by several late 20th-century rock artists, most notably 'Hurt' by Nine Inch Nails. Cash died of respiratory failure on September 12th 2003, aged 71. via thisdayinmusic.com

Born on this day: 26 Feb 1945
Bob "The Bear" Hite, vocalist and harmonica player with Canned Heat who had the 1968 US No.11 single with ‘Going Up The Country’ and a 1970 UK No.2 single with ‘Let’s Work Together’. Hite performed with Canned Heat at the 1969 Woodstock Festival. On 5 April 1981, during a break between sets at The Palomino Club in North Hollywood, Hite was handed a vial of heroin by a fan. He snorted it and fell into a coma, after which others unsuccessfully attempted to revive him with a large dose of cocaine. A group of roadies put Hite in a van and drove him to bandmate Fito de la Parra's home, where he died age 38. via thisdayinmusic.com

What a miraculous recovery. It's a miracle I say. Tonight's Genius Award Winner.

A woman who tried to claim €760,383 (£649,967) for injuries she suffered in a car crash lost her case after she was pictured winning a Christmas tree-throwing contest.

Kamila Grabska, 36, said she was left with a ‘‘disabling’’ condition following an accident in February 2017 when the vehicle she was in was hit from behind.

She had sued RSA Insurance on the basis that she could not work for more than five years, play with her children or carry out basic chores because of constant back and neck pain.

But the Irish High Court, sitting in Limerick, was shown a photo in a national newspaper of her hurling a spruce tree on Jan 8 2018, during her hearing.

Mrs Grabska argued that while she looked happy in the pictures from the charity event, she was still suffering from her injuries and endured pain to this day.

But Judge Carmel Stewart threw out the case and remarked that the “very graphic picture” of her tossing the tree had helped her make the decision.

Cancer advances in the doggeh world. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

A 3-legged American pit bull with a heart of gold and sweet disposition captured the hearts of Alicia and Andrew Alderson when they adopted her in 2017.

“It was absolutely love at first sight—she ran into our arms.”

But their journey took an unexpected turn when last year they discovered a 3-centimeter growth on Annabel Lee’s rear left leg—a mast cell tumor.

I don't like using the direction app on my Android and avoid it as much as possible.

Brianna probably doesn't realize cell service isn't universal in the US, either. This should be a learning experience for Brianna and I'll bet she'll learn exactly zero from her mistakes.

145 138 You can fit about three microcars in the same space required to park an SUV and their light weight allows them to consume far less energy than a standard EV. They’re great for city commutes to work, quick trips to the market, dropping a kid off at school, and transporting your pet to the dog park.


And you could use a dog cart, drawn by two large dogs, to haul your Microlino home when the battery dies and leaves you stranded.

In a blue shithole I used to work in the mayor put in a rule that 50% of parking spaces had to be for compact cars.

Meanwhile at work more then 50% of the people drive luxury SUVs or trucks

The office repainted the parking spots as mandated and people keep constantly banging each other's cars opening doors.

Were the cow-workers mad at the mayor? No...they were mad at the company that owned the parking garage. The mayor? They re-elected zer.

The Top Muslim State Lawmaker in Michigan Wants You to Turn on Joe Biden. Democratic floor leader of the Michigan House of Representatives, Abraham Aiyash...“We’re talking about Joe Biden,” Aiyash bellowed from a raised platform into a sea of red, white, green and black flags rippling in the wind — the colors of the Palestinian flag. “He stood with no spine and did not demand peace for the Palestinians, did not demand peace for the Israelis — but instead, continues to fund a genocide.”

If Biden continues to financially support Israel’s offensive in Gaza and fails to call for a permanent cease-fire, Michigan’s Arab American voters could bring their animosity to the polls — or stay home. Aiyash has signed onto a “Listen to Michigan” campaign, pledging to vote “uncommitted” on Tuesday and urging other Democrats to do the same. As for the general election, if Biden doesn’t budge, Aiyash said he’s genuinely conflicted about how to vote. He’s considering leaving the top of his ticket blank.

Huge complex. And guess what, internally, all the various hallways and sections get laid out at odd angles with respect to the perimeter of the main structure. The main structure is pretty rectangular, angular, but there's some little odd, no-right angles.

I played 40k for 18 years or so, and it was great. Sure it was clunky and unbalanced, but you could easily find a game (or event) anywhere. Pickup games were easy...just set a point value and go. The biggest problem was the non-stop expense of buying new models, new books, etc., and trying to ensure casual players didn't get stomped by experienced competitive players.

Then, Xwing and the more casual, easier to enter (lower price, no painting, etc) games came in, Warhammer Fantasy died, and suddenly, where indy games had withered in the shadow of GW, new games like Bolt Action (or Kings of War) were springing up...and they were much better. Amazing how the monopoly of GW stifled the developmental progress of a whole industry.

2. The Euroweenies are proposing to send troops, in a non-NATO capacity, to occupy select areas in western Ukraine. This will free up Ukrainian manpower to be butchered by the Russians. Aside from being a transparent land grab, the weenies also neglected to mention why the Russians won't hammer their troops with missiles, as they have already done to Ukrainian troops.

Even worse, are the curved, circular layouts. They've got some damned hospital, medical center where the internal hallways are circular, you go around the building in a circle.

Get inside that, with no windows visible and when you're walking down a hall, little noticeable local curvature (but you if you eyeball way down, you'll see the curve).

With that, inside, you'll have no idea where you're facing outside if you aren't paying carefull attention.

But Dad had a buddy who was a weighmaster at the quarry, must have gone 450 back when that was fat. He could not fit in a regular sedan, but used an Isetta sort of like a motorized wheelchair: he'd open that front door (the wheel and column pivoted with it, a real safety feature), turn around and back up to it and sit down, filling the entire minibench that was meant for at least two.

Games Workshop, the British company behind Warhammer and a couple of other 28mm miniatures games. Think 1990s Microsoft: big, expensive, and somewhat monopolistic. Also like Microsoft, valid points to be made for and against their tactics but the most heated arguments are the gaming equivalent of Windows admins and *nix admins whipping it out by the flagpole.

I think they came up with the idea of pervy Dark Elves - D&D at the time were experimenting with making them matriarchal.

325 Microlino is 'just' an electric Isetta (those were not BMW -- BMW had a license to build them). Guy down the block had one, and even as a teenager I found driving it insanely dangerous. But Dad had a buddy who was a weighmaster at the quarry, must have gone 450 back when that was fat. He could not fit in a regular sedan, but used an Isetta sort of like a motorized wheelchair: he'd open that front door (the wheel and column pivoted with it, a real safety feature), turn around and back up to it and sit down, filling the entire minibench that was meant for at least two.

We marveled at how the suspension could hold him up. He didn't live far from work, which was a blessing.

In the field of emergency services, truck tracks can help drivers reach places where access is limited by snow or mud, and thus rescue an injured person more easily.

Fvck the Boy Scouts of America. Die you bastards. Same for the lawyers that are going to let them off the hook for the nearly 90,000 former scouts who have filed sexual abuse claims against them and the lawyers who think that a 20% bankruptcy of BSA will make things right.

Kill the BSA off, salt the earth, take every possession they own of value. They had 100 years to stop the abuse and couldn't figure out how to protect boys from predators in that period of time.

I wish I had never gotten involved or filed a claim. Another sleepless night after spending an hour on the phone with my law firm today.

"Who did you tell?" !!!!!! My own wife, to make sure that our son never stepped foot anywhere near a scout troop. Or my own daughter with sons. Details? Fvck you, yeah I'm gonna tell them details of that?

I said, "Give me the name of who the BSA fired in Pennsylvania, Resica Falls Scout Reservation, that year, since the BSA kept a database of abusers. Give me 10 names. I'll tell you which name is the one." :: crickets ::

'Victim blame bias' is real. Fvck the BSA. Die you bastards.

/rant off. Sorry. Gotta get this shit off my chest and out of my head.

My sister stayed with my father the final year of his life. He gave her his 'Order of the Arrow' sash. I asked her if I could have it to slam down on the desk of any hearing I was involved in with the Boy Scouts abuse.

She will not part with it. She knows it was his most prized possession.

388 My own Dad was 'Order of the Arrow'. I could never tell him.

Me, too, DbZ, Brotherhood level plus the Ad Altare Dei award. Even went to the 1971 World Jamboree in Japan, waking up at the Jamboree proper every morning looking at Fujiyama. So, yeah, I did Scouting and that shit really, really pisses me off. What they've done has ruined all who came before, unfairly so. My Scoutmaster was great, and I learned a hell of a lot from him. He was older and married but childless. He treated us great and taught us many things, including thinking for oneself. One time, I visited him when I was in college and he was ill. It was good to see him. Another guy was there from the troop but before my time. He was now a Naval aviator.

Scouting was good for me and to me and it could be good for so many boys. I want the fuckers who ruined Baden-Powell's idea and hang 'em by the balls until they expire. Time for some knot-tying lessons.

In my research I discovered my Scoutmaster is still alive, yet in his 90's. Like your experience, he was married yet no children. He came to me the night of my abuse experience (13 years old) and offered to get me home. A good man, honorable. But what should have been something that the police were involved in he let the BSA cover up and paper over.

Boy Scouts should be something really good. But this is really bad.

20% bankrupt doesn't seem as if it's much contrition. Nearly the opposite.

Check the sidebar. Bandersnatch passed away yesterday.

Posted by: Anna Puma at February 27, 2024 01:16 AM (v0S0I)

393 I watched an interview with a former US Air Marshall. Apparently, Dementia Joe and Alejandro Jerkin' Crocus have pulled US Marshalls off of planes and sent them to the border, not in any law enforcement capacity, mind you, but to serve sandwiches and take illegals to the hospital and wait there until they have been treated and released. Add in that the illegals being flown all over the country by this Administration do not have to show ID. So now we still have the delicate touches of the TSA but now with less in-flight security. Something bad's going to happen before this election, that black swan event on which people theorize. There's no way letting in 9 to 11 million illegals, with many being single young men of military age, will not have bad consequences. Then the Dems get to go full totalitarian -- on all the wrong people (MAGATS), deliberately so.

The left do love their cute acronyms. Dems spit out MAGATS at us like I spit out FUCK YOU at them.

Another attempt at sleep, thanks RickZ for listening. I have some friends who also had a very positive scouting experience (to the highest levels, like RickZ) who are supportive of me. Kinda hard to understand from my 'salt the earth' point of view.

But doing the right thing is the right thing. I'm not sure doing 20% of the right thing is the right thing. It almost seems as if they're shucking the 80% majority of blame on others.

Ensure with protein powder
Kate farms - 455 calories in 11 oz. It's better than Ensure or Boost.Don't know your tolerance but Ice cream, cake with whipped cream.Butter, Bacon

Adele Davis, you can find her recopies on line - better to buy her old books - Anyway - She has a 'Pep-up' formula that I personally drank for 2 years - is good. She also has a pre-op formula to drink, I think 2 weeks, maybe a month, before surgery to boost your body's recuperative/regenerative stuff. My wife drank it and believes it worked.

Be well and keep in touch.
