Favorites Bold Tragedies Politics

Shoplifting has been used to justify a resurgent law-and-order politics that has energized GOP campaigns over the past couple of years, with the head of the California Republican Party claiming Walgreens closing five locations in San Francisco was evidence that ''Democratic policies have created a crime spike.'' William Chase was convicted of forgery in the first degree, illegal acts regarding election documents, unlawful acts regarding elector's vote, and repeat voting in same election. Chase was sentenced to 25 years, with the first 15 years to be served in the Georgia Department of Corrections without the possibility of parole. In the movies, people throw knives hard, fast, and with a ton of spin. Blurry, spinning objects are easier to convert to CGI, making it so actors don’t really have to dodge knives. In real life, the more spin you give your knife, the harder it will be to stick it.
More than you want to know about Kamala Harris and her long-time partner San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown. After nearly nine months in a Moscow detention center, the American basketball star Brittney Griner is being transferred to a Russian penal colony. Her appeals have been exhausted, and a U.S. proposal to release a jailed Russian arms smuggler in exchange for Griner’s freedom hasn’t led to a deal. Since their discovery, Faraday cages have been used in various places ranging from chemistry labs where precise and sensitive measurements are required, to US Military and NATO computer centres where any unwanted radio emission must be blocked for security and equipment precision considerations. Stingrays, also known as ''cell site simulators'' or ''IMSI catchers,'' are invasive cell phone surveillance devices that mimic cell phone towers and send out signals to trick cell phones in the area into transmitting their locations and identifying information. When used to track a suspect's cell phone, they also gather information about the phones of countless bystanders who happen to be nearby.
Since 2005, newspaper employment in the country has fallen by more than 50 percent. And while print jobs have taken the biggest hit, the employment picture has darkened in radio, TV, and, recently, digital media as well. News companies continue to cut their most senior (and best-paid) people, and lower levels of hiring have made what had been a tight market for new arrivals even more brutal. The problem is usually in the power pedestal. As the female contact (inside the pedestal) wears, the resistance at the interface increases. As you put a load on the circuit, the heat causes the female terminal to expand, reducing its contact pressure on your plug's male terminals. That, in turn, means even more heat, and more expansion. More than 150 Chinese-born scientists who did U.S. taxpayer-funded military research at the fabled Los Alamos National Laboratory in New Mexico are now back home working in China, in some cases, helping develop weapons. He may need his own pardon soon. First son Hunter Biden, who has used the Secret Service code name ''Chieftain,'' appeared Monday at his father’s Thanksgiving turkey pardon — as House Republicans vow to investigate President Biden’s role in his family’s foreign influence-peddling.
The White House denied that the president's visit to the USS Abraham Lincoln had been a costly stunt which delayed the aircraft carrier's homecoming. George Bush made a dramatic deck landing on the carrier in a navy Viking jet warplane which he piloted himself part of the way. Instead of landing at port to meet families, the aircraft carrier circled out at sea to accommodate the president's theatrics. Three regional airlines that provide services for American Airlines on a contract basis have just announced that they will issue a $100,000 bonus to select new-hire pilots. Envoy Air, Piedmont Airlines, and PSA Airlines will all offer this bonus to experienced First Officers (FO) from other regionals who are at the point of being eligible to upgrade to captain.  A dual battery isolator works closely with an electrical battery, permitting electricity in a single direction. At the same time, it prohibits electricity from flowing from the opposite direction. For a motorhome, that means the device allows power flow to the engine battery from the alternator to also be directed to the ''house batteries'' when the engine is running, but prevents voltage from flowing back from the house batteries to the engine battery. At first glance, the Mason and Dixon Line doesn't seem like much more than a line on a map, created out of a conflict brought on by poor mapping in the first place…a problem more lines aren't likely to solve. But despite its lowly status as a line on a map, it eventually gained prominence in  collective memory because of what it came to mean to some segments of the American population.
In America under President Joe Biden, the word ''Bidenville'' is beginning to gain traction as a term for a waste-filled, insalubrious tent city inhabited by what the left calls ''people experiencing homelessness'', who often suffer from an unfortunate combination of drug addiction and mental illness. Just before the 2020 presidential election, a website called National File published pages of a journal it said was obtained from ''a whistleblower'' and belonged to President Biden's daughter. The site published what it claimed was ''the full 112-page diary'' that included entries about the author's time in a Florida drug rehabilitation facility as well as the author's romantic interests, family life and other deeply personal topics. Some States, like Arizona, require mail-in ballots to be received by election day. But in Nevada, the law says ''Must be received by 5 p.m. on the fourth day following the election if postmarked by Election Day. Ballots with unclear postmarks received by the third day following the election are deemed to have been postmarked on or before Election Day''. So, if your party is losing on election night, ballots suddenly ''found'' within 3 days, even without proper postmarks, can be counted. Student loan borrowers were promised debt relief if they'd show up to vote for Democrats, which most did. Just two days later, a federal judge struck down Biden's $500 billion student-loan giveaway because he flagrantly lacks the legal power to do it - as he himself had said until he announced it. How does it feel getting conned by the ultimate Boomer, President Joe Biden?
Like Fight Club, there were rules about joining the secret society known as the Order of the Star Spangled Banner (OSSB). An initiation rite called ''Seeing Sam''. The memorization of passwords and hand signs. A solemn pledge never to betray the order. A pureblooded pedigree of Protestant Anglo-Saxon stock and the rejection of all Catholics. And above all, members weren't allowed to talk about the secret society. If asked anything by outsiders, they would respond with ''I know nothing''. Female college athletes are making millions thanks to their large social media followings. But some who have fought for equity in women’s sports worry that their brand building is regressive. I was introduced to Pasta e Fagioli years ago, when a friend invited me to dinner at the Olive Garden. I started to order spaghetti and meatballs, when my friend interrupted, saying he'd like me to try his favorite. So, the order went in for two servings of unlimited bowls of Pasta e Fagioli with unlimited breadsticks. What a deal, and I've since learned to make it at home. The regionals need pilots with experience to operate but such pilots are suddenly in huge demand by major airlines.
After his death, we learned that Charles Lindbergh, in addition to his wife Anne Morrow Lindberg, had three mistresses and children in Germany.  Ach du lieber Himmel ! The last total lunar eclipse for three years will occur on November 8, 2022, with the next occurring on March 14, 2025 — though we will continue to see partial and penumbral lunar eclipses during that time. Operation CHAOS compiled a number of the CIA's illicit activities and was soon feeding information to the FBI's equally suspect COINTELPRO. Anti-war protestors and Black Panther Party members were targeted, while journalists were added to the CIA's payroll. Meanwhile, the CIA and the FBI went almost 400% over budget with these activities . The New York Times has a reputation of a slight to moderate liberal bias.  They often publish factual information that utilizes loaded words (wording that attempts to influence an audience by appeals to emotion or stereotypes) to favor liberal causes.
Gary Larson wrote his comic strips for syndication for over 15 years, each one is funny and some are perfect examples of what comic art can be. Jane Goodall's attorneys were preparing a lawsuit but stopped when they were told that Goodall thought it was awfully funny. New York City native Washington Irving breathed life into the galloping ghost in 1819, when he penned ''The Legend of Sleepy Hollow,'' one of his tales of life among Dutch settlers along the Hudson River. In Deer Park, Texas, 1974, a child named Timothy O’Bryan was poisoned by a Pixy Stix and died an hour later on Halloween night. Everyone in the community returned their children’s candy to the police because they feared that all the candy had been poisoned. The police ran tests on all the candy and there was no poison in any of them. That led to the question, who did it? On Friday, October 7th, 2022, on the cusp of a 3-day weekend, President Biden signed an Executive Order lifting restrictions on how the government spies on US citizens. The move garnered little media attention or controversy – just as the White House had hoped.
Unless you do some research before going to the polls, don't just pick judges and other local officials just because their name looks good. You are better off, as is your local community, if you skip this section and let those who know vote. As for judges, that would most likely be local attorneys and their staff. Historically alcohol was drunk instead of water. In the Middle Ages water was so polluted it caused millions of deaths from water-borne diseases like cholera. So the solution was to drink ale, beer, wine or spirits, as the alcohol purified the water, the main ingredient in all alcoholic drinks. Though the funny pages are usually a distraction from the everyday frustrations of life, Scott Adams' satirical comic strip Dilbert makes the mundane work of the office the source of endless humor. Facebook tracking serves a single purpose: advertising. Advertising remains the largest source of revenue for Facebook. That's why collecting reams of data is essential for their business model, even after diversification into other areas of tech. After collecting your data for years, what does Facebook know about you?
Social media users are claiming that employees working in Congress, the judicial branch, the White House, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID), the United States Postal Service (USPS), Pfizer and Moderna, as well as undocumented immigrants, are not subject to vaccine mandates. Tip your basket to William Blaxton when you pluck a plump apple from a tree, bob for apples on Halloween or cherish your grandmother's amazing apple pie on Thanksgiving. Reverend Blaxton, among other claims to fame, planted the first seeds that would fuel a pioneering nation and give apples an image of all-American wholesomeness. Going out can be fun sometimes, but like everything else in life, there needs to be a balance. You can’t go out all the time! Sometimes staying in is the best option. It turns out that zooming in on an ant's face is an absolute nightmare. A close-up photograph of an ant was sent in as a submission to the 48th annual Nikon Small World Photomicrography Competition - and the results are freaky. The tight shot of the tiny insect shows the ant's beady red eyes, angry expression and what appears to be long, sharp teeth.
Legend has long held that a cow being milked by Mrs. Catherine O'Leary kicked over a lantern and started the Great Chicago Fire. The story appeared soon after colossal fire that consumed much of Chicago and has spread ever since. But was the cow really the culprit? Walmart is the largest single employer in 19 states, and in almost every single state in the traditional South—the only exception is North Carolina. Given that Walmart is a juggernaut of employment, it's not surprising that the company has established a number of rules its workers have to follow. Three musicians from the iconic American rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd, plus three other people, were killed in a terrifying plane crash on the Louisiana-Mississippi border on October 20, 1977. Lead singer and founder Ronnie Van Zant, guitarist Steve Gaines, and his sister, backup singer Cassie Gaines, were all killed on impact. Over the millennia of its existence, humanity has accumulated a huge amount of so-called ''folk wisdom'' - sayings, proverbs and various allegedly wise quotes. These are words that are intended to reflect some kind of rule of conduct.
A memoir about visiting an old college professor who was dying and the final lessons he imparted. Albom’s book, clocking in at just under 200 pages, hit the bestseller charts … and stayed there for years. It sold more than 17.5 million copies (and still counting). It was translated into dozens of languages. Oprah turned it into a movie. It became a cultural touchstone about grief and loss. In 1981, Israeli Air Force F-16s destroyed a nuclear reactor that was being built near Baghdad. Israel said the reactor would provide Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein plutonium to build nuclear bombs, and it must be destroyed. Playing Scrabble in German comes with a few challenges. At first glance, the question might seem absurd: Scrabble is in no way limited to English. It is a truly worldwide game, spanning 29 languages, including several a sight less obscure than the world's 12th most common tongue. ''During my time in intelligence, I had noticed that there was inconsistent internal logic to classification decisions. And I came to see that the classification system exists wholly in the interest of the U.S. government — in other words, it seems to exist not to to keep secrets safe but to control the narrative.''
This is a newspaper ad from the early days of the cold war with Russia. Modern Preppers are getting ready again for the worst situation that might happen. As a remedy and to protect their loved ones, an underground bomb shelter where families can stay is once again a popular idea. As little kids we believe everything our parents say — until reality comes knocking and we start to realize that some things parents say might not be completely true.  Here are some of the biggest lies parents tell, including some they may even believe themselves that need debunking. Having a lot of money you didn't work for isn't everything. The son of one of the richest men on earth didn't work well for Cornelius Junior, dying in 1974 at age 76, leaving a widow and six previous wives all better off than when he met them. An interesting life story. The ways the American public is controlled and spied upon now exceeds imagination. Your mail is being photographed, hidden microphones record conversations on city buses, just try to think up the most bizarre way you can think of, how our overlords are spying on us, and they are probably already doing it.
Transit authorities in cities across the country are quietly installing microphone-enabled surveillance systems on public buses that would give them the ability to record and store private conversations. The systems are raising a number of privacy and security concerns. In the opinion of the author, Joe Biden's cognitive deficits are increasingly apparent, even to the most amateur observer. Whether he has dementia at this point is immaterial. Half the world thinks he does and that weakens the United States and imperils us all. Touching the thumb and index finger to make a circle, with the remaining three fingers held outstretched, is a gesture that people around the world have made for centuries, mostly in positive contexts. Between 7 October 1940 and 6 June 1941 almost 28,000 high explosive bombs and over 400 parachute mines were recorded landing on Greater London. Daylight bombing was abandoned after October 1940 as the Luftwaffe experienced unsustainable losses.
Waffle House restaurants have a reputation for staying open during extreme weather - and for reopening quickly after being forced to close due to tornadoes and hurricanes. If you live in Florida, you've probably heard of the ''Waffle House Index'', an informal metric used by emergency officials to measure the severity of a storm. The Ritchie Boys consisted of 20,000 servicemen, trained for U.S. Army Intelligence during WWII at the secret Camp Ritchie training facility. 2,200 of them were Jewish refugees born in Germany and Austria. Most of them were assigned there because of fluency in German, French, Italian, Polish, or other languages needed by the US Army during WWII. Vice President Kamala Harris is regularly mocked and criticized, and is known for laughing when confronted with tough questions or at the most inappropriate times. But, she really outdid herself when she commended the United States's strong alliance with the ''Republic of NORTH Korea'' while visiting our ally SOUTH Korea. One hundred years ago, government officials divvied up water in the Colorado River among the seven states that rely on it including Arizona, California, Colorado, Nevada, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming. The agreement, known as the Colorado River Compact, was based on one critically important number: the total amount of water that the Colorado River can supply yearly.
Specially equipped NOAA aircraft play an integral role in hurricane forecasting. Data collected during hurricanes by these high-flying meteorological stations help forecasters make accurate predictions during a hurricane and help hurricane researchers achieve a better understanding of storm processes, improving their forecast models. The aircraft is a Boeing E-4B Advanced Airborne Command Post (AACP), though it is sometimes also referred to as the ''Flying Pentagon''. It is a strategic command and control military aircraft operated by the United States Air Force, which serves as a survivable mobile command post in the event of emergencies and crises. In one of the most devastating health debacles in our nation’s history, some 54,000 residents and workers in long-term care facilities died of causes related to the coronavirus within four months of the first known infection. Between 1919 and 1947, William Randolph Hearst and architect Julia Morgan constructed a sprawling palace in San Simeon, California complete with 165 rooms, elaborate swimming pools, and even a private zoo.
While experts broadly agree that plug-in vehicles are a more climate-friendly option than traditional vehicles, they can still have their own environmental impacts, depending on how they’re charged up and manufactured. Here’s a guide to some of the biggest worries — and how they might be addressed. Confronted with the thought of death, many of us perform the psychological equivalent of hiding in a box with our knees under our chin. But John Donne saluted death; he wrote it poetry, he threw it parties. In August 1964, the United States entered the Vietnam War after reports of an unprovoked attack in the Gulf of Tonkin. But the reports were false — and the president knew it. According to the author, though we may have the same talents and abilities across lifetimes, we may be famous in some lifetimes but unknown in others. For example, a past life for President Donald Trump has been identified in which he was a French governmental official in Eastern Canada when France was colonizing this part of North America, around the era of the American Revolutionary War. Who were you in a former life?
True Costco fanatics know that a big part of the wholesale club giant's success comes a quarter pound at a time, and is served at the Costco food court: The legendary hot dog and 20 ounce soda combo, which clocks in at a wallet-pleasing $1.50. The looney-tuner from the USA is a man pretending to be a woman, and the woman from Belgium is overweight by at least another whole person. You might try quoting Al Pacino as ''Tony Montana'', and risk getting your faced slapped, but here are 25 pick up lines from movies that make great ice breakers. There are so many people with funny names out there that you might not believe they are real.
In his speech, Biden claimed to distinguish MAGA Republicans from mainstream ones and then proceeded to conflate them. That may resonate with partisan Democrats who have never seen a conservative they didn’t consider a bigot or a fool. But it gives the lie to the idea that dismantling MAGA Republicanism is the prime objective of the president or his party. A story that is going world-wide. Mike Lindell, the ''My Pillow'' patriot, was surrounded by FBI agents at a fast food restaurant and had his cell phone seized. ''Don't tell anybody, understand?''  Screw you, I'm telling everybody. Diamond and Streisand recorded separate versions of this song that were spliced to together by Gary Guthrie, a producer at the radio station WAKY-AM in Louisville, Kentucky. As it happened, Streisand and Diamond both attended New York City's Erasmus High School, where the Brooklyn-born future superstars were in the school choir at the same time. Their chemistry and performing skills made their duet on this lovelorn song a very convincing one. The mysterious UFOs seen by WWII airmen are still unexplained. They were cigar-shaped, glowed red and could turn on a dime, which ruled out even the most sophisticated rockets of the time. At first the men said nothing, fearing they’d be ostracized. But then the sightings spread through the units.
Secret prisons reflect a parallel legal system for prisoners who are denied access to communications, deprived of their due process rights, and hidden from public scrutiny. Wally's owner, Joie Henney, a reptile rescuer, has more than 30 years  experience with alligators and has cared for Wally for six years. Lewis Wallace wrote ''Ben-Hur: A Tale of the Christ,'' a thrilling and globally renowned biblical epic, in 1880, and it is one of the most widely read and influential books in history. It has sold some 50 million copies, and it is among the top two-dozen books of all time. A teacher in Ireland has been suspended from work and then jailed for contempt of court after he refused to use the correct pronouns to address a transgender student.
The no-covid club gets more exclusive every day. And some members have no idea how they’re still there. Here are the stories about a few of them. What most people don’t realize is that even if you don’t use any Google products directly, they’re still trying to discover as much as they can about you. Google trackers have been found on 75% of the top million websites. This means they're also trying to track most everywhere you go on the internet, trying to slurp up your browsing history. MacArthur referred to his hat as his ''Philippine Field Marshal's cap'' and wore it for the duration of World War II and into the Korean War. However, the modified army headdress was against regulations, and MacArthur never officially obtained permission to wear it. President Truman is reported to have said ''Look at him, he's not in uniform, he's in costume''. Former President Barack Obama and current President Joe Biden's friendship may not have been the bromance Americans were led to believe. A new tell-all book reveals that Obama and Biden's relationship seemed to be one-sided after it was revealed that Obama once said ''Shoot  Me Now'' to his aide as Biden rambled on while delivering a speech. By Obama's own admission, Joe Biden's presidency will be his third term.
Sometimes a book's mere existence has an eminently greater cultural significance than its content. Such is the case of Dr. Fauci: A Little Golden Book Biography. The 24-page illustrated work, billed as ''an inspiring read-aloud for young children,'' does not exist to entertain America's toddlers, but rather to soothe the secular souls of Millennial parents whose mental and emotional well-being have steadily deteriorated since November 8, 2016. The horrific human atrocity of World War II ended aboard the USS Missouri in Tokyo Bay as Japan formally signed documents of surrender on this day in history, Sept. 2, 1945 in a ceremony that lasted only 23 minutes. ''Maga Republicans do not respect the constitution,'' Mr. Biden said at the Independence National Historical Park in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. ''They do not believe in the rule of law.  They do not recognize the will of the people. They refuse to accept the results of a free election'' he added, referring to Mr. Trump's claims that the 2020 presidential vote was rigged against him. According to estimates from The National Safety Council, tens of thousands of accidents will happen over the weekend, more than 52,000 people will seek medical attention for injuries sustained in a car accident this weekend and nearly 500  will, unfortunately, suffer fatal injuries.
It was clear to cryptographers before World War II that the single-stepping mechanical motion of rotor could be exploited by attackers. In the case of the famous Enigma machine, these attacks were supposed to be upset by moving the rotors to random locations at the start of each new message. This, however, proved not to be secure enough, and German Enigma messages were frequently broken.

Yes, Monkeypox is a ''gay disease''. The reasons our public-health elite doesn’t want to admit it are political, not medical. Try to imagine the fear. Not knowing where you are. Who are those people? Why are they touching your stuff? Why are they touching you? Who is that person in the mirror?
It seems that Microsoft founder and billionaire Bill Gates has his hand in a lot of pies these days. From being the country’s largest private farmland owner to continuing to advocate for vaccines, he seemingly does it all. According to a new Bloomberg report, he was even instrumental in getting the Inflation Reduction Act to Biden’s desk. Do you see a pattern here? Our current oil shortage did not arise from a foreign war or tsunami, but from a deliberate policy to curtail oil production to force a more rapid transition to battery-powered transportation. The code had long baffled cryptographers, law enforcement agents and armchair sleuths obsessed with the shadowy killer, who was blamed for five murders in the late 1960s.
In 1970, Elvis Presley showed up at the White House and wanted to see the President. Then, things get a little crazy. The jigsaw puzzle of William Howard Hughes Jr.'s life has many missing pieces. After disappearing into thin air in 1983 he was wanted across the globe by numerous agencies, from the Air Force to the FBI to Interpol. At one point it was thought that he defected to the Russians. Some suggested he sabotaged the disastrous Challenger space shuttle launch. Mike Lindell, an advocate of election integrity measures, is hosting an online event called Moment of Truth beginning at 9 am on August 20th. Some politicians and advocates are now gaslighting the public into believing that men have no advantages over women in sporting events. Even though the rest of the nation can see this is not true, President Joe Biden has chosen to go forward, proposing rules that schools allow males to compete with biological females, to prevent discrimination against men pretending to be women.
Chicagoans and non-Chicagoans alike are familiar with the legacy of Al Capone. The king of crime ruled Chicago's underworld during the ''sinful, ginful'' 1920s, and experts say he was responsible, directly or indirectly, for the murders of between 300 and 700 people. But, most agree the city was safer under ''Scarface Al''. On August 14, 1945, President Harry S. Truman announced the Japanese government had surrendered, bringing World War II to a close. Emperor Hirohito of Japan informed his own citizens on August 15th on the radio, the first time the  Japanese public had ever heard his voice. While it is true that President Nixon, on August 15, 1971, suspended the convertibility of the U.S. Dollar into gold in international transactions, thereby ending the Bretton Woods regime and putting the ''final nail in the coffin'' of the gold standard, Nixon's action was preordained by what LBJ had done three and a half years earlier. Younger and middle-aged men, and let's not forget widowers, are the loneliest they’ve ever been in generations, and it’s probably going to get worse.
Nothing like this has ever happened to a President of the United States before, FBI agents were reportedly searching for classified documents that Trump brought with him from the White House to Mar-a-Lago after his presidency ended. If you thought Hunter Biden's business deals were shady, just wait. Pauly Jr. is on the payroll of two lithium mining companies and Asia just happens to be a lithium gold mine and Taiwan just happens to be a world leader in lithium battery production. He's also heavily invested in Singapore's energy sector. If the IRS shows up at your door in combat gear like this, you must owe a lot of back taxes. Why does an IRS agent even need to be armed? Under ''spend it or lose it'' budgeting practices, if they don't spend it, next year's budget will be less, and millions are wasted at the end of the fiscal year. Supporters of former President Donald Trump marched to his Florida home of Mar-a-Lago to show support for the country's former leader following an unexpected FBI raid. Fans had cars decked out in pro-Trump stickers and signs, including ones that supported a 2024 presidential bid.
The Silent Generation comes after the Greatest Generation and before the Baby Boomers. They are the people born between 1928 and 1945. They are now retirees ranging in age from 75 to 92 years old. TIME magazine in a 1951 article noted: ''The most startling fact about the younger generation is its silence.'' Why? Military Corruption dot com is dedicated to fighting for the truth and exposing the corrupt in all branches of the military including various divisions of the American government associated with the military. The website attempts through the exposure of corruption to fix what they believe is broken. Hotel guests leave behind millions of half-used bars of soap every day. A nonprofit is on a mission to repurpose them. ''Donald Trump is an evil reprobate and a big meanie, and a danger to our Constitutional rights,'' growled the retired politician who orchestrated the brutal torture of hundreds of detainees who were held without trial. ''We must make sure he never gets elected to office again. And also, vote for my daughter, Liz.''
Don't we all want our pets to have the very best of everything? Here are 17 crazy cool pet products that your pet might not need, but they'll definitely want. V-Disc (''V'' for Victory) was a morale-boosting initiative involving the production of several series of recordings during the World War II era by special arrangement between the United States government and various private U.S. record companies. The records were produced for the use of United States military personnel overseas. Many popular singers, big bands and orchestras of the era recorded special V-Disc records. A clockmaker, hoping to capitalize on interest in fitness after the 1964 Tokyo Olympic Games, produced a pedometer named the ''10,000-steps meter'', creating a walking aim that, through the decades, somehow became embedded in our global consciousness. But, is it really necessary to walk 5 miles a day? Iwo Jima is located half-way between Japan and the Mariana Islands, where American long-range bombers were based, and was used by the Japanese as an early warning station, radioing warnings of incoming American bombers to the Japanese homeland. This is the story of the raising of that flag.
The three most important aspects that make a car a worthy purchase is cost-effectiveness, reliability, and enjoyment. This article will break down these features and deduce the valuation of the car by what customers have to say about their Tesla experience. 95% of all those infected with monkeypox are men engaging in homosexual activities. So, why are we trying to vaccinate everybody? FLY2RV offers an easy, convenient way to rent an RV at one of 42 participating general aviation or commercial airports across the U.S. Simply book your RV, fly in and your dream RV will be waiting when you land. Definition: The political cartoon refers to comic drawings drawn up with the purpose of transmitting opinion commentaries on political subjects or personages. It uses humor as a form of expression, but it is considered a political tool of great seriousness and transcendence.
As the deadliest pandemic in recorded history – it killed an estimated 50 million people in Europe and the Mediterranean between 1346 and 1353 — it's a question that has plagued scientists and historians for nearly 700 years. In 2017, United Airlines received some bad press for hauling a doctor off a plane by dragging him down the aisle. Political cartoonists jumped on the story. The rugged stone, massive scale, fine detail, and ingenious mechanical systems of this magnificent Gilded Age mansion recall the powerful presence of James J. Hill, builder of the Great Northern Railway. Completed in 1891 at a cost of nearly $1 million (about $30 million in today's money). Pope Francis apologized to Canada's native people on their land for the Church's role in schools where indigenous children were abused, branding forced cultural assimilation a ''deplorable evil'' and ''disastrous error.''
Put together nine months before the start of the war, the National Intelligence Estimate spells out what the CIA knew about Iraq’s ability to produce biological, chemical, and nuclear weapons. It would become the backbone of the Bush administration’s mistaken assertions that Saddam Hussein possessed WMDs and posed a direct threat to the post-9/11 world. The pink triangle, symbol of the ''gay rights'' movement, is familiar to many Americans. As the badge used by the Nazis to designate homosexuals in the concentration camps.This all-important victim status engenders sympathy for the homosexual cause among well-meaning heterosexuals. Thus, millions of otherwise rational Americans support a movement whose sole unifying characteristic is a sexual lifestyle they personally find repugnant. Researchers in Denmark say that surgical masks did not protect the wearers against infection with the coronavirus in a large randomized clinical trial. I like gadgets as much as the next guy, but measuring the CO2 level of the air in a passenger jet to assess the risk of getting the Covid-19 bug might be considered by some as ''Analysis Paralysis'', over-thinking a problem.
You may get into a disagreement with a neighbor at some point. Maybe they don't like where you park your car. Or you're awakened by the sawing and hammering of their late-night woodworking projects.

Enter the Clintons, to do what Bill and Hillary do best.
A writer rides the rails from New York to San Francisco, discovering dazzling landscapes and fascinating fellow passengers along the way. Joseph Goebbels, Minister of Propaganda for the Third Reich, would have admired President Joe Biden's ability to tell whoppers about all issues, big and small. Like, how he used to drive an 18 wheeler, or how high gas prices are the fault of Russian President Vladimir Putin. The Zone Improvement Plan, was introduced in 1963, in which geographical areas were assigned a numeric code for easier sorting and delivery. Along with this came the now-familiar all-caps, no-periods state abbreviations. Starting in the 1880's and for much of the 20th century, more than 150,000 children from hundreds of indigenous communities across Canada were forcibly taken from their parents by the government and sent to what were called Residential Schools.

While swimming in the ocean, it’s essential to keep in mind there may be some other critters in the water. Besides the typical jellyfish sting or the occasional nibble at the toes by little fish, there are sharks in the ocean as well. Due to recent heightened geopolitical strife, it has become more important than ever to understand how to survive a nuclear bomb and its fallout. A nuclear bomb can be survived outside of the epicenter. Anyone within the epicenter of the blast radius will automatically be terminated. The further out from the epicenter the better should a bomb drop. Sales tax is the most unfair of all taxes, imposed more strongly on lower income families. Sales tax is regressive. Why? Because people who earn less pay a larger percentage of their salary in the form of sales tax, as compared to those who earn more. You might not be getting the salmon you paid for. America’s favorite fish is swimming in a sea of controversy, from alleged corporate price fixing and false sustainability claims to mislabeling and fraud.
A 100-year-old World War II veteran, U.S. Marine Carl Spurlin Dekel, heartbreakingly wept as he celebrated his birthday last week, claiming that the country he loves and others died for has ''gone down the drain''. Was 2020 stolen? It’s deeper than that. You’ve heard it said ''Those who vote decide nothing. Those who count the votes decide everything.'' What about those who code the vote? What if our leaders aren’t actually being elected by us, but instead are selected? The Melanoid Nation Foundation is an advocate for justice and human rights for people of African descent adversely affected by systematic racism, and they assume that all white people are racist until proven otherwise. ''Lawrence H Pfaff Sr. was born in Belmont, NY, on April 16, 1941. He passed away on June 27, 2022, living a long life, much longer than he deserved. He is survived by his three children, no four. Oops, five children.'' And, the obituary gets worse as you read it.
The Battle of Gettysburg was fought July 1-3, 1863, around Gettysburg, Pennsylvania during the Civil War. With the largest number of casualties of the entire war, it is often described as the war's turning point. Union General George Meade defeated Confederate General Robert E. Lee, ending Lee's attempt to invade the North.

The Betsy Ross Flag is probably the most well known of the many American Revolutionary War Flags. The familiar 13 red and white stripes and the blue field with 13 stars in a circle is commonly seen on patriotic memorabilia, books, artwork, tv shows and more.

Please tell me this president doesn't have the nuclear launch codes. ''Boy Scouts marched in Seattle in a parade celebrating so-called ''Gay Pride Month''. The Scouts led the parade carrying American and rainbow flags, which represent ''LGBTQWTF'' ideology. I can only imagine the new and exciting activities at scout camp this summer. Wanda says, ''It's like the country is no longer a democracy''. Sykes blames the red states that she described as ''the middle of the country''. She doesn't realize we are a Republic, not a Democracy, and the Electoral College is there for a reason.
On his evening television show, Stephen Colbert downplayed the detention of his staff by US Capitol Police as a 'non-surrection' and joked that Triumph the Insult Dog should be charged with 'first degree puppetry' - though police say they could all still be criminally charged. One of the more controversial provisions would amend the Military Selective Service Act to require women to register for the draft. Republicans succeeded in striking the proposal in last year’s NDAA, but it made it through the committee over their objections. What are these people thinking? Things will change pretty fast when these women start getting sent home in body bags.  FBI agents Mulder and Scully are reunited by a TV host who promotes conspiracy theories and believes that alien abductions are false flag operations, actually being carried out by our own government and powerful individuals bent on taking over the United States and then the world. Like everything else about General George Custer, his martyrdom was shrouded in controversy and contradictions. The final act of his larger-than-life career played out on a grand stage with a spellbound public engrossed in the drama. In the end, his death would launch one of the greatest myths in American history.
Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation’s leading infectious disease expert, just ask him, tested positive for COVID-19 even after receiving all four shots and wearing two masks. The Man Who Inspired Father’s Day Was a Single Dad and a Civil War Veteran. William Jackson Smart was a twice-married, twice-widowed father of 14 children.

The appetite to travel again after more than two years of lockdowns and mask mandate debates has yielded one completely predictable result: Many airports and airlines are unprepared for a massive surge in traffic, and things might get much worse this summer. While the corona virus is not directly comparable with many past experiences, including the Medieval Plague, both present a persistent threat to human health and safety. When the Black Death swept Europe in 1347 to 1353, an estimated 25 million people lost their lives, about one third of the population, at that time. Back in 1985, When our present president was taking campaign contributions from the gun lobby, he sang a different tune when asked about gun control. According to Burger King Australia, the intended message of the Pride Whopper was to spread equal love and equal rights. ''Our strongest concern is if we offended members of the LGBTQ Community, we truly apologize.''
In the past week, a judge in Wisconsin was murdered, and an attempt was made on the life of Supreme Court Justice Kavanaugh, and these two clowns are fighting protection efforts. We certainly don't want to make fun of anyone based on looks, but evangelist Joyce Meyer, who makes millions telling people things they already know and she can't prove, made the mistake of having plastic surgery to stop the clock on aging, and it did not go well. Tucker Carlson says Pete Buttigieg should resign immediately, he is totally unqualified for his position as 'Transportation Secretary', a job he knows nothing about. One night in December 1976, Roy Orbison was closing his show at Caesar’s Palace, when Presley suddenly came on stage. Elvis announced to the crowd that Roy Orbison was ''quite simply, the greatest singer in the world''.
Joe Biden and the Democratic Party have a plan to get inflation under control and address the economic anxiety felt by millions of Americans. It's not a plan in the conventional sense, but rather a public relations campaign to convince you that the economy is actually doing quite well. A satanist drag queen and porn star who wants to destigmatize gay incest porn is emceeing an upcoming pride fest that enjoys support from the Minnesota taxpayer. June is Gay Pride month, and many companies are bending over backwards to provide celebrating LGBTQWTF populations with Pride-themed merchandise and special offers. Alcohol can thin your blood, and is a heck of a lot more fun to take, because it prevents blood cells from sticking together and forming clots. This may lower your risk for the type of strokes caused by blockages in blood vessels.

Hackers enroll fake students and collect up to $900 million in financial aid and Covid-19 aid each semester, taking seats away from actual students hoping to enroll in those classes. Millions in tuition was paid to the colleges, who now don't want to pay it back. Even while voting against LGBTQ interests, including same-sex marriage, RINO Lindey Graham has not escaped questions regarding his own personal life, particularly about the longstanding rumors of his bachelorhood being evidence of his own gay identity.
In 1968, the U.S. government passed the Uniform Monday Holiday Act, which put major holidays on specific Mondays to give federal employees three-day weekends. Memorial Day was one of these holidays, along with Washington's Birthday, Labor Day and Columbus Day. One thing that is important to remember is that Memorial Day is different from Veterans Day. It's intended to remember those who gave their lives, not everyone who's served. So, while it's always good to thank people for serving in the military, it's unnecessary to do on Memorial Day and some think it's even inappropriate, and wishing someone a ''Happy Memorial Day'' is really the wrong thing to say, it also isn't Christmas or New Years. Here is how the late William Safire began his New York Times column of Jan. 8, 1996: ''Americans of all political persuasions are coming to the sad realization that our First Lady - a woman of undoubted talents who was a role model for many in her generation - is a congenital liar''. Brace yourselves for endless rainbow profile pictures and viral Twitter videos of gender-ambiguous people twerking in the streets with little to no clothing. You’d think adults would want to keep children far, far away from these displays of cultural degeneracy, but the opposite seems to be true: Sexually charged children’s pride activities are popping up all over the country.
Although Blumenthal served in the Marine Corps Reserve during the Vietnam War, he did not leave the United States. Yet in 2008 Blumenthal was caught on camera, saying, ''We have learned something important since the days that I served in Vietnam.'' His work back home as a reservist was fixing campgrounds and organizing Toys for Tots drives. The unofficial Democratic Party slogan seems to be ''Never let a good crisis go to waste'', and both Barack Obama and Joe Biden jumped right in to use the Uvalde tragedy as an excuse to promote their personal agendas. In the mid-20th century, launching satellites into space helped us determine the exact circumference of the Earth: 24,873 miles. But 2000 years earlier, a man in Ancient Greece came up with nearly the exact same figure using just a couple of sticks and his brain. Warren Buffett, the ''Sage of Omaha'' gives his most expansive explanation for why he doesn’t believe in bitcoin.
Death wobble. No other pair of words strikes fear into the heart of a driver quite the way these do. It starts small: a simple shudder or vibration. But before you know it, you're white knuckled, grasping the steering wheel tight, trying to settle the vehicle down before losing control. There are around 175,000 white and orange U-Haul rental trucks in the United States and Canada for do-it-yourself movers. And they all have something strange in common: Arizona license plates with the word "apportioned" slapped on them. The reason?
This is the story of the Race to Alaska, through one of the most complex waterways in the world. 15 knot currents, gale force winds, cold water, deep water, logs, bears, cold, fatigue, and endless unknowns. First prize: $10,000. Second prize: a set of steak knives.
The man who built the old Morton Salt complex helped shape Chicago. Joy Morton and his salt company didn’t just dominate the salt industry, they helped create the city as we know it.
When caught doing something they aren't supposed to be doing, what is the first thing they do? Deny. At the first court hearing, you plead ''not guilty''. You attack your accusers, saying they are crazy for thinking you did something like this. But, in most cases, you did do, and your only way out is to convince everyone that those attacking you are without merit. Built by the White Star Line, the RMS Titanic was the largest ship entering service in 1912. White Star was in competition with Cunard Cruise Line for dominance over the Atlantic passage. Cunard focused on speed. The Titanic prioritized size and comfort. Like modern cruise ships, the Titanic wanted to be the biggest and most awe-inspiring vessel out there. The LSAT questionnaire is an example of the insidious, pro-radical lifestyle biases that are being introduced at every level of American society. If you are a heterosexual white male conservative of Christian or Jewish faith, the odds are high you will be discriminated against. Fox News' Greg Gutfeld weighed in on the controversy over a plus-sized model on the cover of Sports Illustrated magazine's annual swimsuit issue, offering up his own unique takes on Yumi Nu who received this year's honor and who according to the left, is not allowed to be criticized.
We often think that stuffed animals are just for children, but if you can get them to admit it, many adults have stuffed animals too! A 2018 study shows that 43% of adults have a special stuffed friend, and 84% of men versus 77% of women admit to owning at least one. The most popular stuffed animal for adults is the time-honored teddy bear. But what benefits do these stuffie friends offer their adult owners? At 268,596 square miles, Texas is a big state - the second largest, after Alaska. If Texas were a country it would rank as the 39th largest by area. However, those stats may not give you a great idea of how actually compares to different countries, since size is often better understood visually. The 'most extreme political organization that’s existed in American history'? Really? BlazeTV host Glenn Beck took to Twitter to respond to Biden's outrageous assertion by sharing 50 incidents of far-left violence from 2016 to 2020. During a speech in Chicago to supporters, President Biden called President Trump ''The Great MAGA King'', as if that was somehow a bad thing. Did that ever backfire! Trump lovers everywhere embraced the term and new t-shirts are flying off the shelves.
April 19, 2022 marked the 49th anniversary of the film’s release, and its futuristic, dystopian themes have some relevance today, so much so that four Arizona State University professors, all in different fields, could address the movie’s, well, prescient takes. Hearst grasped onto the Cuban revolt against Spain in 1895.  His paper regularly published stories sympathetic to the still sparse revolutionary cause and describing in great detail real and rumored atrocities of the Spanish.  Hearst hoped to spark U.S. intervention in Cuba and was persistent in finding ways to achieve it. The Digiconomist's Bitcoin Energy Consumption Index estimated that one Bitcoin transaction takes 1,544 kWh to complete, or the equivalent of approximately 53 days of power for the average US household. In rare cases, coronavirus vaccines may cause Long Covid-like symptoms. Brain fog, headaches, blood pressure swings are being probed by NIH and other researchers.
13 percent of Americans are black, according to estimates from the US Census Bureau. According to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, black offenders committed 52 percent of homicides recorded in the data between 1980 and 2008. Only 45 per cent of the offenders were white. Insane as it is that the Department of Homeland Security has created a Disinformation Governance Board, it’s utter madness that the woman running it is Nina Jankowicz, who’s a veteran disinfo spreader. Anna Jarvis realized that she'd made a mistake by creating ''Mothers Day'' when she saw the florist, card and candy industries cashing in. She died in 1948 at age 84, alone and penniless, never making any money from Mother's Day, and she never had any children. 8th May 1945: Some amazing photos of crowds celebrating VE Day in London. At three o’clock in the afternoon everyone stopped to listen to Churchill’s victory speech he had written the night before: ''the evil-doers now lie prostrate before us'' he said with a flourish and everyone cheered.
Since last year, Canadian law, in all its majesty, has allowed both the rich as well as the poor to kill themselves if they are too poor to continue living with dignity. In fact, the ever-generous Canadian state will even pay for their deaths. What it will not do is spend money to allow them to live instead of killing themselves. Conservative politicians and commentators are criticizing the Biden administration for creating a new bureau to fight the spread of disinformation online. Several of these critics have compared it unfavorably to the Ministry of Truth, a fictional department in George Orwell's dystopian novel 1984. The real science inspired by 'Star Wars'. From Darth Vader's breathing to the dual sunsets of Tatooine, we take a look back at the real studies inspired by the ''Star Wars'' universe.

The Biden administration wants to abuse the CDC's perceived and pretend authority to justify illegally rigging state elections under no longer existent ''pandemic'' conditions as happened in swing states in 2020. According to press secretary Psaki, ''for current and future public health crises, we want to preserve that authority for the CDC to have in the future.'' The entire basis of the recent federal court ruling is that the CDC lacks the authority to issue such ''mandates''in the first place. When ''Lake'' comes first, it's usually to emphasize a feature of the lake - like Lake Superior. ''Lake'' often comes second in the names of smaller, lesser-known features, but all of it can depend on local preference. The Messerschmitt Bf 110 was not the best or the worst of the combat aircraft to see service during the Second World War. It had been one of the German Luftwaffe’s great hopes at the start of the war, as it was fast and heavily armed – so much so that it appeared almost invincible during the Blitzkrieg campaigns. The aviation equivalent of an automotive barn find: a brand-new, fully furnished Boeing 747-8, commissioned and customized for an Arabian prince and abandoned for a decade is now parked at a scrapyard.
ocrates said ''Regard your good name as the richest jewel you can possibly be possessed of ''. But how can you be sure the name you choose for your child is good in the first place?

Because obesity is so prominent, we often avoid the people on the other side of the scale -- the underweight. And we're not talking about people with eating disorders that keep them thin, but those who can't put on any weight no matter how hard they try. Kahele continues to work as a Hawaiian Airlines pilot, a job that paid him nearly $120,000 in 2020, according to his most recent House financial disclosure report. As a member of Congress he earns an annual salary of $174,000. On April 30, 2022, the Canadian government says it will begin prosecuting Canadians who continue to possess any of the 1,500 models of firearm that, until May of 2020, it had been perfectly legal for them to own.

The ''Waters of the United States'' rule, usually abbreviated as WOTUS, acts to define the waterways (rivers, creeks, wetlands and lakes) for purposes of regulation. It became a call-to-arms for the political right, who viewed-and continues to view it-as governmental overreach. President Joe Biden is taking another jab at trying to get a Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) director confirmed as he nominated on Monday Steve Dettelbach, a former Senate-confirmed U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Ohio.
Privateering is essentially legal piracy. In the age of sail, it was common for nations to issue letters of marque licensing private citizens to raid the shipping of enemy nations. The Paris Declaration of 1856 outlawing privateers, but the United States never signed that declaration, and Article I of the Constitution gives Congress the power to issue letters of marque. Mike Huckabee: ''The wonderful family-friendly company that Walt Disney founded is gone, replaced by creepy corporate executives who have lost their minds and will likely lose a lot of their customers. They certainly have lost me.''

Designated a National Park in 1872, but 10 years later commercial developers were building illegal hotels, restaurants and other venues while prospectors and loggers pillaged the park almost at will. Many visitors treated the hot springs as their own personal hot tubs, causing irreparable damage. Buffalo Bill moved to stop it. ‘Just straight-up lying’: Little Red Lying Hood Jen Psaki’s doing a characteristically terrible job of selling us on Joe Biden, and even the liberal press is getting sick of it. Wonder no more: In the days of the sailing ships there was no plumbing. So, the crew answered the call of nature by relieving themselves from a platform built at the front end of the hull, or ''head'' of the ship.   A million Americans live full-time in RVs, according to the RV Industry Association. Some have to do it because they can’t afford other options, but many do it by choice.
Legend says that Saint Patrick chased all the snakes out of Ireland. The problem? These creatures never actually lived in the country. In fact many animals found throughout Europe and North America don’t live on the island of Ireland—the ocean keeps the critters away. The current invasion of Ukraine is not the first time Russia has taken drastic action to quell Ukrainian dreams of independence, engineering a man-made famine in the 1930's. Estimates of the dead range from 4 to 20 million. As soon as James Stewart’s feet touched the tarmac, Sally said with utmost enthusiasm, ''Welcome to Carlsbad, Mr. Stewart, my name is Sally Connors and I’m here to help you in any way that you need.'' ''Let's Go Brandon'' may be specific to the age of memes, but insulting epithets for presidents are nothing new.  ''Tricky Dick'' had an appealing rhythmic quality, as Nixon was seen as unscrupulous long before the Watergate scandal.
''Spring Ahead'' and ''Fall Back'' may end forever. Many states have passed measures to stay on daylight saving time permanently, a move that some have called ''lock the clock''. This requires an act of Congress, as states are not allowed to remain on daylight time year-round. Congress has proposed doing just that with the Sunshine Protection Act. Those three words uttered by career criminal George Floyd prior to his death by drug overdose while in police custody rocked the nation in the spring of 2020. The historic eruption of lawlessness and violence that followed under that rallying cry opened new fault lines in the nation's cultural and political landscape.

Welcome to Area 51 – the mysterious research center in the USA, mired in controversy and impenetrable secrecy.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy’s character in ‘Servant of the People’ is straight out of a Frank Capra movie. It’s easy to see why the people of Ukraine voted for him, even if they didn't imagine him defending their country from Putin. The author of this article fails to see that limiting free speech isn't democracy, it is facism. The author says, It is time to schedule a recall election for both President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris. They are clearly in over their heads and incapable of governing. It seems like every week, another rocket is launched into space carrying rovers to Mars, tourists or, most commonly, satellites. The idea that space is getting crowded has been around for a few years now, but just how crowded is it?
The Degüello (Spanish: El toque a degüello) is a bugle call, notable for its use as a march by Mexican Army buglers during the 1836 Siege and Battle of the Alamo, to signal that the defenders of the garrison would receive no quarter by the attacking Mexican Army under General Antonio López de Santa Anna.

The letters saved by Montgomery Ward employee Verna Gregg ended up with her grandson, who has published them in a book. Despite his campaign promises not to raise taxes on anyone making less than $400,000, Biden's IRS agents are going after thieves and burglars who don't report their stolen loot as income.That's how they got Al Capone. To avoid being charged with tax evasion, crooks are required to declare illegal income by placing the amount on the ''other income'' line.
Prisons you can stay in range from notorious, supposedly haunted spots with basic bunks and a not-so-warm welcome, to places that have been transformed into luxury hotels with only the odd barred window giving away their past. Economics journalist Stephen Moore says that with the national debt now at $30 trillion, Congress should demand an immediate audit of every government program to find the waste. Then, instead of spending more, it is time for an across-the-board 10% cut to every program. A confused political hack from Delaware staged a one-man insurrection by invading the sacred precincts of the Capitol building, hijacking all the TV networks, and yelling that the planet would be destroyed unless we gave him all our money so he could burn it and turn it into green energy. A new billboard ad in New York City's Times Square urges President Biden to reject oil from Russia. ''Hey Vlad. Screw You!'' the billboard states. ''Nyet to Russian Oil. Time for American oil.

Around 1880, the nuns prayed to St. Joseph - the patron saint of carpenters - to help with a solution for their chapel stairs. A visitor arrived at their door with his mule and some tools. When completed, the stairs had no central column or support beams, all the weight is self-supported at the base. The mysterious craftsman did not use nails or glue, only wooden pegs, and disappeared without being paid. Was this story true? Milton Friedman was an American economist and statistician who received the 1976 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his research on consumption analysis, monetary history and theory and the complexity of stabilization policy. As the host of the television show ''Wheel of Fortune'', Pat Sajak works 48 days per year, $312,500 per workday, and $52,083 per episode, six of which are taped each workday. And, those salary numbers are from 2015, his new contract is rumored to be for much more.
Four out of 45 US presidents have been assassinated over the course of American history.  But many more chief executives escaped assassination attempts thanks to heroic bystanders, diligent guards, misfiring pistols, and crazy luck. This irreplaceable, former U.S. Army base, consisting of 575 private military-built, concrete and steel, all-risk bunkers, is now repurposed and affordably priced, ready to provide life-saving shelter for your entire family or group. You can visit and stay in your bunker as often as you like, even live in it fulltime as your primary residence or a home away from home. Birds Aren't Real is a satirical conspiracy theory which posits that birds are actually drones operated by the United States government to spy on American citizens. A journalist described Birds Aren't Real as ''a joke that thousands of people are in on''. Richard Gere is a Buddhist, an admirer of the Dalai Lama, whom the Chinese view as an enemy of the state. The cancellation of a star of the magnitude of Gere shows how bad the problem is, how much in bed Hollywood is today with its grim partners in the East.
Before the days of long security lines, sad snack packets, and minimal leg room, flying was seen as a luxury experience. Boarding an airplane in the 1950s was comparable to taking a fancy cruise. In the novel ''Fathers and Sons,'' Ivan Turgenev wrote, ''A nihilist is a man who doesn't acknowledge any authorities, who doesn't accept a single principle on faith, no matter how much that principle may be surrounded by respect.'' These words may have been written in the 19th century, but they apply to Americans of today who follow the path of instant gratification achieved through wanton violence. Since the start of the pandemic, Trudeau has acted like COVID entitled him to unlimited power in the name of public safety — sort of like Gov. Andrew Cuomo on amphetamines. Now he claims he is entitled to use an iron fist to crush the trucker protest movement against a vaccine mandate. The author says: ''President Biden should immediately issue an executive order lifting the mask mandate on airline flights, a prudent action that finally brings back a sense of normalcy to air travel.''
''I have a foreboding of an America in my children's or grandchildren's time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues.'' Chivalry is best known as the belief and practices of the knights of medieval times, and this code of ethics or conduct was upheld by the knights of yore. These codes were written many centuries ago, and a man who was to be called a knight had to abide by all of the several rules that summed up the ''knight's code.'' The story of how the Doomsday Clock began ticking 75 years ago, the brainchild of a Chicago artist. In 1954, Democratic Senator Joseph McCarthy charged that a young associate in Welch's law firm was a member of the Communist Party. Joe Welch was stunned. As he struggled to maintain his composure, he looked at McCarthy and took him down. The audience burst into wild applause.
''Let me just try putting Briele in with her sister, to see if it helps'', the nurse said to the alarmed parents. ''I don't know what else to do''.
A surge protector blocks power surges that may get sent to your RV. This may be from a lightning storm or a malfunction with the power grid. That surge will do a lot of damage to any appliance or electronic equipment that are plugged in. If you somehow get the hot wire and the neutral conductor swapped, that’s known as reverse polarity.
The good news is that Zoomers aren’t nearly as entitled on the job as millennials. The bad news? They could really use a hug. A lifelong inventor whose creations ranged from high-tech defense weaponry devices to electrostatic printers, Ron Howes built an impressive resume that will always be best known for the enormously popular toy that he fathered nearly a half century ago: the Easy-Bake Oven.
Google Maps Timeline is a service that tracks where you have been … well … where your phone has been. It shows the route that you took to get to the grocery store and back. It displays the exact times that you were on the move. It even guesses the names of the buildings you entered. But, is it a great tool or an invasion of privacy to be misused by others? Take a look at the famous, insightful and interesting quotes and thoughts by Joe Biden who has had a distinguished career with a plethora of successes and some stumbling points that are indispensable with such an occupation. ABC's 2 week suspension of Whoopi Goldberg over remarks that trivialized the Holocaust is drawing harsh criticism from many who are appalled over the network's double standard after it fired actress and comedian Roseanne Barr over a joke. Now, a 1993 recipe submitted to a community cookbook by Goldberg (who is not Jewish but has pretended to be Jewish for years) is drawing fire.
Defibrillation involves the delivery of an electric shock to the heart which causes depolarisation of the heart muscles and re-establishes normal conduction of the heart’s electrical impulse. The machine used to deliver this therapeutic shock to the heart is called a defibrillator. The Saudis deny any role in 9/11, but the CIA in one memo reportedly found ''incontrovertible evidence'' that Saudi government officials — not just wealthy Saudi hardliners, but high-level diplomats and intelligence officers employed by the kingdom — helped the hijackers both financially and logistically. For all the feminist criticism of men supposedly treating women like dogs, it is actually today’s feminism-infected women that are treating men like domesticated animals. Unfortunately, this Readers Digest article didn't include any of the whoppers told recently.
A list of people Joe Biden probably won’t name to the Supreme Court, not even Hillary Clinton. But, when she ran for the Senate in New York she discovered a Jewish ancestor, helping her win. So, maybe there's an African American in her background she can find. Abbott and Costello know who’s on first, and they’re under oath this time. After all the votes were tallied, it wasn’t even close. Plowy McPlowFace won the Minnesota Department of Transportation’s inaugural ''Name a Snowplow'' contest with 65,292 votes. The next-closest vote-getter was Ope, Just Gonna Plow Right Past Ya, which garnered 29,457 votes. More than 122,000 votes were cast in all. Elmyr de was a Hungarian painter and art forger, who is said to have sold over a thousand forgeries to art galleries all over the world. His forgeries garnered celebrity from a Clifford Irving book, Fake (1969); a documentary essay film by Orson Welles, F for Fake (1974); and a biography by Mark Forgy, The Forger's Apprentice: Life with the World's Most Notorious Artist (2012).
One of the more flagrant examples of turning a political career into exorbitant wealth is Speaker Nancy Pelosi, who has served in Congress for nearly 34 years. During that time, Pelosi has managed to amass a net worth of $315 million. If you're self-employed or have a side hustle and get paid through apps like PayPal, earnings over $600 per year will now be reported to the IRS. Prior to this,  if you had more than 200 transactions and over $20,000 a year would be reported. My son Joe's dog Buster was a one of a kind dog, litter mate to our female Lily who died in 2021. He will be missed by our family, and others who got to know him. What a great dog Over his decades in office, Joe Biden’s family fortunes have closely tracked his political career.
Buried deep within the massive infrastructure legislation recently signed by President Joe Biden is a little-noticed ''safety'' measure that will take effect in 2026. Marketed to Congress as a benign tool to help prevent drunk driving, the measure will mandate that automobile manufacturers build into every car what amounts to a ''vehicle kill switch.'' When driving an RV, there are winding, narrow roads leading to and from highways that need extra precaution. There are many low-clearance and narrow bridges and tunnels, as well as roads that suddenly become dangerous with no warning. Here are some of the roads across America that you want to avoid driving in a recreational vehicle. Decades after its release, the movie has gained respect because Tom Horn and McQueen's performance were ahead of their time. Audiences were used to action-packed Westerns with gunfights and brawls. McQueen offered them something different, a meditation of the West and a character study of one of America's best-known figures of the era. President Joe Biden blamed a lack of competition in the meat processing industry for rising meat prices at the grocery store, saying they are exploiting ranchers, farmers, and consumers. But when asked to explain how they do that, he was short of detail, proving again he hasn't a clue about what is really going on.
What exactly a given gang sign means, even to insiders, depends on who's flashing it, who's receiving it, and where the exchange is taking place. Anom, an encrypted phone company marketed to criminals which the FBI secretly took over, surreptitiously recorded every message sent by the phones’ users. But the truly global undercover operation had another secret: The phones also collected users' precise GPS location. A magazine cover celebrating African beauty is being criticized for making Black women look "tragic." The February 2022 cover of British Vogue featuring nine Black models is coming under fire by critics on social media who say poor lighting, makeup and styling make the women appear unnatural. Calling Harry Reid a ''statesman'' is not the same as calling O.J. Simpson, a double murderer who attended the funeral of his butchered-to-death wife, a ''grief counselor'', but it’s close.
As tens of millions of dollars in transactions pour in for NFTs, enthusiasts say these investments will soon expand beyond trading art, music, video clips and memes. Silicon Valley investors say the moneymaking possibilities in NFTs are limitless. I wonder if any of these people know about the Tulip Bulb craze in Holland in the 17th century? A love bomb, and the feelings you get when someone showers you with loving actions, declarations and behavior, differs greatly from the thrill of a healthy relationship. The problem is that it’s over-the-top, and in many cases it’s a classic manipulation technique, and a potential sign of an abusive relationship in the making. Operation Mincemeat was a deception conceived by British Intelligence to fool the Germans regarding the true target for the Allied invasion of Sicily. A dead body would be 'planted' off the coast of Spain carrying secret documents which purported to reveal that the targets for the forthcoming invasion would be Greece and Sardinia, not Sicily. Calvin Coolidge’s most famous quote is ''The business of America is business'', and he is perhaps the least understood or studied president of modern times, but one we could use today.
We can take some educated guesses about where individual Founders would have stood today based on their personalities, their philosophies, and their biographies.  ''Let's Go Brandon'' started at an October NASCAR race in Talladega, Alabama, where the crowd was chanting ''F--- Joe Biden''. The television reporter covering the event told her audience the crowd was yelling ''Let's Go, Brandon'', the winner of the race. Mike Lindell may be correct by blaming the ''cancel culture'' for his drop in business, but he continually makes one of the most common errors in communication. Pulitzer Prize winner Seymour Hersh is one of America's greatest investigative reporters, covering many of the most important stories of his time, helping expose the My Lai massacre during the Vietnam War, and bringing attention to the Watergate cover-up, and Richard Nixon's secret war in Cambodia. His 2019 interview in Salon magazine is most revealing.
''Jeopardy!'' contestant Amy Schneider was born a man, but she’s being toasted as the highest-earning woman in the show’s history, much to the chagrin of those decrying the accolade as an example of stolen female glory. DNA is the oldest network that exists among us, older than Facebook or marriage records, older than society or family, immutable and ineradicable. DNA left at a crime scene may lead authorities to you and your relatives, one of whom may be the person they are looking for. Health authorities seized on the unifying threat of the COVID-19 pandemic and exaggerated its threat to create mass hysteria is backed up by leaked details of how the UK government manipulated its population during the early days of the pandemic. It’s time to join together with loved ones and celebrate America’s newest holiday: January 6th! To make the most of your holiday, consider these ten patriotic ways of remembering the day.
Kente silk cloth was worn by affluent Ashanti, among the first ones to profit from the slave trade, capturing and selling their enemies to the English and Dutch. The bright colors chosen by Nancy Pelosi are for wearing at joyous occasions, not sad events, where red and black are used. Thinking this might buy votes from African Americans, who know when they're being pandered to, the plan backfired. George Costanza knows better than to go down to Times Square for New Year's Eve. With no porta-potties or bathrooms available, most of those happy smiling folks you see celebrating on television are wearing diapers. Today, most people experience New Year’s Eve in Times Square as a television show with musical interludes. But, going back to the first event in 1851, Times Square has had some interesting year-end celebrations. Hiraeth is a homesickness for the places from your past you can’t return to or even those you’ve never been to. Hiraeth can also mean nostalgia for your past self, the people who are long gone, or the emotions you used to feel.
During a speech in  2002, George Bush cited a number of reasons, in addition to alleged terrorist links and weapons of mass destruction, about why Saddam was so dangerous, noting, in particular that, ''After all, this is the guy who tried to kill my dad''. As their command module floated above the lunar surface, the astronauts beamed back images of the moon and Earth and took turns reading from the book of Genesis, closing with a wish for everyone ''on the good Earth.'' Lia Thomas has broken numerous University of Pennsylvania women's swim records. In her 1650-meter freestyle win, Thomas beat second-place finisher and teammate Anna Kalandadze by more than 38 seconds. That means that the women who had held those records no longer hold them, because universities allow biological men to join women's swim teams. Congress is considering a special tax on billionaires, expanding the estate tax and clamping down on the trusts that wealthy families use to avoid taxes.
It’s safe to say that McDonnell Douglas was well aware that their F-15 Eagle was an incredibly capable platform, but even they were reluctant to believe that the Israeli aviators had managed to fly one without a wing. A previously unseen Oct. 2020 email from Dr. Francis Collins, the outgoing head of the National Institutes of Health (NIH), to his colleague Dr. Anthony Fauci is raising concerns about government-sponsored suppression of free speech—a direct violation of the 1st Amendment. Working Americans have had trouble this year affording basic needs amid the nation's soaring inflation rate. A 6.8 percent surge in consumer costs has meant necessities like food and gas have become unaffordable for many, whose salaries haven't kept up with inflation. In 2011, Waffle House adopted the ''Waffle House Index'', a color-coded system notifying the community and government organizations like FEMA of a local disaster's severity and destruction. Code Green indicates a full-service menu, while a limited menu is under a Code Yellow umbrella, and if Waffle House is closed, then it's Code Red.
Vast numbers of Americans are turning to seemingly cumbersome CPAP machines to combat obstructive sleep apnea. Why do baby teeth not fall out in some adults? Sometimes, it could be because the adult teeth that should have replaced the baby ones are missing. The condition in which teeth are missing – usually permanent ones – is known as tooth agenesis. Televangelist Kenneth Copeland, the richest pastor in America, avoids paying an annual property tax bill of $150,000 by claiming that his massive lakeside mansion is a clergy residence, which qualifies it for a complete tax break. In the early 1970s, astronomer and solar scientist John Eddy noted several important star alignments involving the central and circumferential cairns, indicating the Bighorn Medicine Wheel was used by prehistoric Native Americans as an astronomical observatory and calendar.
Every political cartoonist takes a risk to exercise freedom of expression, especially those who feature radical Islamists. Drawing an image of the Prophet Mohammed is forbidden, and can be a death sentence for the artist. A Lab Poodle mix is popularly called a Labradoodle. This mixed breed combines traits from both parents. Both parents are intelligent and make good family dogs, so you can expect your Labradoodle to be the same. Labradoodle size, color, coat type, and personality can vary widely. People were surprised to learn this animal was transmitting the oldest and one of the most feared diseases to human, leprosy. Where did they get it? We gave it to them. '' I think that's ridiculous ''. Jill Biden dismisses concerns about her husband's mental fitness and claims he works 'almost 24 hours a day'.
Sailors, Marines, and Soldiers fought back with extraordinary courage, often at the sacrifice of their own lives. Those without weapons to fight took great risk to save wounded comrades and to save their ships. Pilots took off to engage Japanese aircraft despite the overwhelming odds. Countless acts of valor went unrecorded, as many witnesses died in the attack. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases and the Chief Medical Advisor to President Joe Biden ignited backlash after telling Americans they should ask friends and relatives to essentially show their papers before letting them in the door. Hopefully, the metal won't be recast into a statue of the career criminal rushed to sainthood by the left, George Floyd. Someday, people are going to be very sorry they did this. ''The reality is though, I will wake up tomorrow in the America of the year 2021, a nation unrecognizable to those who came before us and fought to protect it, which is what you must do now,'' Williams said. ''They’ve decided to burn it all down with us inside. That should scare you to no end as much as it scares an aging volunteer fireman.''
The author questioned how the government was handling the Covid pandemic, writing letters to the editor of the local paper. My dad told me ''never, ever, write a letter to the editor of the paper, you'll be viewed as a goofball to the readers''. If your case is less than perfect, the prosecutor is going to produce evidence showing that you displayed one of these.  He will argue that these signs serve as clear evidence of your desire or even eagerness to shoot or kill someone. On November 7, 1937, the Los Angeles Examiner published a prescient map predicting how Imperial Japan could attack the U.S. during World War II. While the rest of us were napping during lockdown, two 17-year-olds from Ontario were working hard to invent a new device to help people who are deaf, using a camera and tiny computer to translate American Sign Language (ASL) into spoken English.
In her new book, ''Laptop from Hell'' Post columnist Miranda Devine reconstructs the Biden family’s quest for cash by using files left on Hunter Biden’s abandoned laptop. Etymologically, “procrastination” is derived from the Latin verb procrastinare — to put off until tomorrow. But it’s more than just voluntarily delaying. Procrastination is also derived from the ancient Greek word akrasia — doing something against our better judgment. A Montana Army National Guard soldier is the first woman ever to graduate from the Army’s intensive, seven-week sniper course. Sgt. Daniel Perry was swarmed by a group of Black Lives Matter protesters, including Garrett Foster, who approached his car with an AK-47 in the ''ready position'' as protesters began banging on the car and throwing bricks.
It’s not just the ''let’s go Brandon'' meme. The latest viral trend to mock President Joe Biden are Biden gas pump stickers that say ''I did that'' and show the president pointing in the direction of the prices. Velu Nachiyar & Kuyili: With the exception of Tamil Nadu, both women are relatively unknown across the country despite their epic warfare tactics and historic win against the British in the eighteenth century. In 1881 in Old Fort Sumner, New Mexico, William H. Bonney, known as Billy the Kid, runs into an old friend, Pat Garrett. Garrett informs Billy that the locals want him out of the country, and in five days, when he becomes Sheriff, he will make Billy leave. Even politicians can be sued for slander for public statements made ''outside their seat'', including vile statements made by presidential candidate Joe Biden.
Solo shares that alcohol measurements were not an intentional design element when it comes to the widely used plastic cup. Instead, the company recommends other common uses for Solo cup measurements, like mouthwash, cereal and the recommended amount of water we need to drink each day. If you're like many guys, it's not for lack of trying. You might be spending hours clicking profiles and messaging women on dating sites. You sometimes get a response, but rarely from anyone you actually want to date. These people think the criminals killed by Kyle Rittenhouse in self defense were the real ''heros'' that night. And, they have a few more whacky views on life in America. Long marginalized and misrepresented in U.S. history, the Wampanoags are bracing for the 400th anniversary of the first Pilgrim Thanksgiving in 1621.
Cousin Eddie, the character from ''National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation'' and I have a few things in common, for example, we both showed up at a relative's home in our motorhome for a 3 week stay. My friends and family could probably come up with a few other similarities. In a controversial passage in Plato's ''Republic'', Socrates introduced the idea of the ''noble lie'' (gennaios pseudos). A majestic fiction, he says, could sometimes serve society by persuading uninformed citizens of something good for them. The general’s death from Covid, despite his vaccination status, indicates one thing very plainly: the vaccines don’t work. If they did, if they really prevented anyone from contracting the disease, Powell might still be alive. In 1954, homosexuality was illegal. Alan Turing was given a choice between prison or chemical castration. He committed suicide.
A remarkable discovery in the desert outside of Tucson, Arizona has scholars buzzing around the world. For some strange reason, I really like this ''My Pillow'' commercial. So what does it take to make a good ad? Well, as you’ll see in the examples shown, there are a few common traits the best commercials share. Over the course of around 250 years, seafaring Norsemen left their homes to pursue riches abroad. The era has become almost legendary and left a lasting legacy on the world. But how much do you know about the long history of the Vikings? In August 2021, a claim was made that Snopes’ co-founder and CEO David Mikkelson was revealed to be a serial plagiarizer, sloppily violating copyrights of other publications in an attempt to make the site look extremely proactive in uncovering news.
From 1850 to 1900, times and places out West were still unsettled, lands were wide open, new territory needed exploring, law enforcement was not a 911 call away, and those ventured far from the dusty streets of civilization depended on themselves and reliable tools for their daily existence. By the middle of the nineteenth century, smoking in general was a big thing, socially acceptable, manly, and becoming ever easier with the introduction of cigars, cigarettes and matches. Tobacco would induce a state of 'vertigo, loss of power in the limbs, a sense of deadly faintness, cold sweat, inability to speak or think, nausea and vomiting.' This might be unpleasant, but in Salter's experience it would halt an asthma attack. Back in the 1980s when the McDonald’s Quarter Pounder was the burger to beat, A&W had the great idea to debut a 1/3 Pound Burger at the same price as a Quarter Pounder. More meat for your dollar—what could go wrong? The more you yoga, the more you toot. Not only is it normal to fart in yoga, but it may be good for you.
In the era of Cold War the Western information space was full of numerous fantastic stories about Soviet submarines. Having taken shape in books and websites, those tales still keep Americans and Europeans on the trot. RusNavy.com tries to demolish the foremost fables of Western ''folklore'' of 1950-80's.

Levine is being celebrated as being the first female four-star admiral in the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps. This is an affront to women everywhere. Levine is transgender, a man pretending to be a woman, and we are expected to pretend right along with him. Air America's slogan was ''Anything, Anytime, Anywhere''. Pilots delivered everything from rice to munitions to bodies, both living and dead, and the work was never boring. There was no such thing as a typical day. Your atomic clock needs to receive signals from the National Institute of Standards and Technology in Boulder, Colorado (NIST) to correct the time. Place your atomic clock in a window, or outside, facing towards Colorado. Leave it for at least four minutes so that it can find the signal. On a daily basis, the clock will search for a signal at 2 AM for eight minutes, but, depending where it is mounted in your home, may not find it.
The Halloween model of low-budget production, fresh-faced casts, and unstoppable, knife-wielding, holiday-minded killers has been adopted by scores of other filmmakers and films. Most horror movies that take place in a house follow a similar plot. The family move into a house where a murder took place years ago, the house was on a budget so they bought it and they are happy until strange things start to happen. The Ustasha of Yugoslavia was a Muslim-Catholic alliance of Nazi killers so beastly that even Nazi officials in Berlin were horrified. The Ustasha and three related crack divisions of Arab-Nazi Waffen SS comprised of tens of thousands of Muslim volunteers and terrorized people of all faiths in Yugoslavia. Evidently, common sense and years of experience are no longer needed to get a job at the White House.
The fledgling pharmaceutical industry, sponsored by the ‘Rockefeller Institute for Medical Research’, had something they never had before – a large supply of human test subjects. Supplied by the U.S. military’s first draft, the test pool of subjects ballooned to over 6 million men. A lot of the greatest pilots who ever lived will tell you that Bob Hoover was the greatest pilot who ever lived. Shot down in  France in World War II, Hoover spent 16 months as a POW, spending much of the time in solitary confinement as punishment for two dozen escape attempts. Finally, he succeeded just before the end of the war by stealing a German fighter. The ribbons on Admiral Levine's chest are basically ''participation awards''. Click to see real military ribbons. Dia de los Muertos, also called the Day of the Dead, is a three-day celebration in Mexico during the days of October 31, November 1, and November 2. During these three days, the locals believe that the spirits of their loved ones travel from the world of the dead to visit the living.
A senior Biden health appointee who made history when she became the nation's highest-ranking openly transgender official has also become its first openly transgender four-star officer. There is a massive propaganda push against those choosing not to vaccinate against COVID-19 with the experimental mRNA vaccines. Mainstream media, the big tech corporations, and our government have combined efforts to reward compliance and to shame and marginalize non-compliance. Ron Bolen figured a 12-hour hike up the mountain, seven up, five down. His backpack contained water, a collapsible water bottle, water purification tablets, a couple of protein cookies, rain gear, a first aid kit and his phone, onto which he had downloaded a map of the area.
Critics that Fauci was funding research in labs that were actually creating pandemic pathogens that, if leaked or if they fell into the wrong hands, might create the very human pandemic they were trying to prevent. Well, guess what?
About the bobblehead
In 1868, Horatio Seymour was nominated as the Democratic presidential candidate, and Frank Blair, Jr.was nominated for vice president. The campaign slogan was ''Our Ticket, Our Motto, This Is a White Man’s Country; Let White Men Rule.'' It was one of the most audacious space missions ever. As the spacecraft touched down on a comet and neared its closest approach to the Sun, recounting the drama, disappointments and jubilation of a 30-year quest. Planeloads of migrants are being flown to locations all across America by President Biden's administration to quietly resettle them in communities who are not aware of it until it is too  late. Half a century ago, Democrats looked at the country and realized they were never going to convince Americans to agree with them. But they noticed that people in most other countries of the world already agreed with them. The solution was obvious.
The Biden administration decided to dispatch 13,000 Afghanis, including at least one pedophile, to Wisconsin. Sparta, a small town of less than ten thousand, could only watch as a population of Afghans outnumbering its own population created a new Afghanistan on the premises of Fort McCoy. 13,000 people who either don't know how to, or refuse to use, a modern toilet. It’s not an understatement to say this bill, if passed, will fundamentally change our country forever. Americans will wake up in a few years and wonder what happened to their freedom. We can’t let that happen. 'Fox News Primetime' host Ben Domenech explores how respect for U.S. military has transformed under the new administration. As Domenech talked about the brave men in the ranks who still risk their lives to protect us, he got a little choked-up, and I followed right along behind him. More than 2.7 billion miles from the sun—29 times farther than Earth treads—a tiny sliver of sunlight reflected off something plummeting toward our home star. Something icy. Something unimaginably old. Something big.
In 1859, a woman identifying herself as ''the Queen of Heaven'' appeared in Wisconsin. Some might say these encounters are a form of necromancy, others that the person reporting the vision is mentally ill or just seeking attention. Virginia voters were bombarded with an unsolicited fake newspaper, designed to look like a real local one, that included misleading content echoing Democratic gubernatiorial hopeful Terry McAuliffe's campaign message. From 2012: Industry insiders have speculated that Wheaties, like Corn Flakes, wasn’t healthy enough for the Fiber One crowd and wasn’t bad enough for those who wanted to eat Lucky Charms or Frosted Flakes. Known as dactyloscopy, a system of fingerprint identification was developed from the work of Sir Francis Galton by Sir Edward R. Henry. Nowadays, fingerprinting is used across the entire world and has many valuable applications.
William Shatner, age 90, who, as commanding officer James Tiberius Kirk, said ''to boldly go where no man has gone before'' at the start of each episode of Star Trek, is actually going to do it, which will make him the world's oldest astronaut. Hopefully, the asteroid will strike in an ocean, but if not, we might have to bend over and kiss our collective asses goodbye if this doesn't work. Where is Bruce Willis when we need him? In the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, most of the city was destroyed by the blaze. The fire was so enormous it actually leapt across the river. One-third of the city's population of 300,000 were left homeless and at least 300 people died. While the Amerika intelligentsia persists in butchering your children’s souls in their grisly game of social engineering, they have the temerity to deny they’re doing it and then to turn around and call you a ''domestic terrorist'' if you object.
The Wayback Machine is perhaps one of the most useful tools available on the Internet. Now Internet Archive has created the ''Wayforward Machine'', which travels forward in time to a deeply dystopian apocalyptic 2046. The sister of dictator Kim Jong-un and youngest child of Kim Jong-il, had spent her life in the shadows. But, recent developments indicate she's the likely heir to the North Korean leadership - whether her brother likes it or not. As race car driver Brandon Brown gushed about his Talladega win, the raucous Alabama crowd delivered a message to NBC’s listeners: ‘F*** Joe Biden.’ The NBC reporter engaged in a desperate bit of damage control, explaining to the listeners that they were actually chants of ‘Let’s go Brandon!’ The unexplained illness, which was first recorded in Cuba has since spread to US embassies across the world with a reported 130 cases. Symptoms include hearing loss, severe headaches, memory issues, dizziness and brain injury. But is it really just '' mass hysteria''?
