I'm Writing This ONT Under Protest!

Because Kurt Schlichter's newest Kelly Turnbull novel is out a day early, and I want to get back to reading it.

This is the third in the series that takes place in a world after the US splits up into Red and Blue, The United States of America and the People's Republic of North America. The first two were People's Republic, which introduced us to this world, and Indian Country that took place during the split. Aside from being pretty entertaining stories in the spy genre, the inside jokes about what life in the Blue is like are damn entertaining, in a whistling-past-the-graveyard kind of way.


Staying on a Theme

Since the People's Republic is just another failing, despotic, totalitarian state, let's take a look at poisoned tree that spawned it.

The Tragedy of the European Family


The Antidote



I'm not crying, you're crying! OK, well maybe I am. A little.


Of course, we need a little knowledge to go with it, and I can't think of a better man to wield the clue-by-four than Thomas Sowell

Thomas Sowell Returns

You Mean I Can't Do That?


TURNS OUT, IT’S HIGHLY ILLEGAL TO FLY A PLANE WHILE YOU’RE 10 TIMES OVER THE LEGAL DRINKING LIMIT


Fortunately nobody aboard the plane, a Boeing 7&7, was injured.

Speaking of things going wrong in the air....Wisconsin skydivers jump to safety after two planes collide

All 9 people involved landed safely. The pilot of the plane that lost a wing managed to hit the silk as well, and the other pilot landed his damaged plane without mishap. Here's raw footage from the jumper's helmet cams.

Moron FastFreeFall does this for fun. When I asked him about the video, he responded with a meme from a Keanu Reeves movie that featured Reeves asking “Are you going to jump or jerk off?”. I told him that from the way he talked about skydiving, I just kind of assumed he was always doing the later when he did the former.

Then, of course, there's this: Experienced skydiving instructor committed suicide by releasing harness midair. Imagine being the poor student. “Hey, I thought I'd be scared, but this isn't so..” * instructor unclips, plummets * “...was it something I said?”


Beer!


A Major Beer Battle Is Brewing and it Could Mean the End of PBR

What will the poor Millennial do without his ironic can of Pabst? I saw a six of that a while back going for $9. NINE DOLLARS! Back in the day, I used to pay less than that ($7.99, at the liquor store at the corner of Jamestown and Coastal Hwy in OC, Md.) for a CASE of PBR! And Natty Boh was even cheaper! SMDH. I'm getting old, man.

Interesting

What is the function of the human appendix?

Turns out it's more useful than we once thought, they don't generally yank it unless they have to anymore.

People Are Sick

The horrifying story of a prostitute orangutan named Pony who was chained to a bed, shaved daily and forced to perform sex acts on men twice her size

The title says it all, you don't really need to click. I would quibble with the work “prostitute”, however. The orangutan was nothing of the kind. She was just abused. Borneo. But all cultures are equal, donchano, so shut your cis-het mouth, hater. Diversity!
