Fair warning: this is about as disturbing a crime as one could think up :eek:





















How they only gave him 15&5 is beyond my comprehension...

For several years I lived among people in New Guinea whose ancestors had practiced cannibalism. No one that I knew had eaten human flesh, but one of the grandmothers recalled that as a very young girl they cut up a vicious enemy and sent parts of him around to be fully vanquished. I learned 2 things ... 1. The feet are the best part. If you're gonna barbecue your neighbor, stick to those. 2. Much like cannibalism in North America prior to European settlement, no one ever ate a whole human body. You eat a small part to ward off the spiritual return of the enemy. Gotta get it all ... Body and Spirit.

Now that cannibalism is on topic, I'll add a caveat I picked up from one of the science lectures I use as soporific:

One consequences of cannibalism tribes in New Guinea was devastating prion disease, related to "mad cow" was apparently passed on and concentrated in tribes that practiced that cuisine.

Apparently eating ones dead might have been an act of respect for fellow tribe members, family etc as often as it was practiced on individuals defeated in tribal wars.

Prions? Ah, what an appropriate, "Twilight Zone" style demise for the consumer - almost as good as the earwig babies :eek:
Not sure how one uses that nightmarish concept as a sleep aid but whatev's...

Sleep Tight! :D

On a sort of similar note, when my dad lived in Patagonia, he knew people who had gone Indian hunting in the 1920s, in the same way as you'd hunt anything else that you viewed as vermin. Technically that's still within living memory - and you can imagine what happened in Patagonia also happened elsewhere in the Americas....

Anyway, getting back on topic, following on from the stock cubes :

And from Seattle :

Hahaha! Speaking of "G"s, I was parked in a mall-ish lot this afternoon waiting out a drenching squall and noticed my phone had its "5G" notification active. Well, Skeptical Cat was skeptical as there's not much real "5G" out here in the boonies, so I pulled up my "Network Signal Info" app and sure enough it ID'd the tower as just "4G+", whatever that amounts to.

So, yeah, the phone could even have a "7G" display right now...

Cheers!

Utica Club was a cheap central NY beer that was marketed in the norteast and featured TV commercials with talking beer mugs named Schultz and Dooley.

Do they do that on purpose? Say it is an 11'-8" bridge but the signs in the video clearly show 12-4.
It was originally 11'-8" when the channel started and a few years later they raised the height by 8" to 12'-4". The channel now calls it 11'-8"+8" because it's cooler than just 12'-4"

The city raised the bridge to 12 foot 4, right before the covid lockdowns started happening, but apparently in that length of time, better idiots were starting to spawn as well. 😆
