The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

“Our directive has been to educate the public when we see violations. When we see people on playgrounds and things like that, we’re encouraging them to stay home and practice social distancing. But we’re not issuing citations or formal warnings.” Sgt. Clayton Swenson, Sandy PD


Quote II

“Citizens can be without clothes in places designated for this purpose, but they must have their mouths covered and must observe the numbers in which they can go into nature," Spokesperson for the Lazne Bohdanec PD


Quote III

But constant experience shows us that every man invested with power is apt to abuse it, and to carry his authority as far as it will go. Montesquieu

The ONT Is Always Looking Out For YouTM When you get up in the morning and brush your teeth, do you see a jerk?

ere’s something you probably didn’t do this morning: Look in the mirror and ask, am I a jerk?

It seems like a reasonable question. There are, presumably, genuine jerks in the world. And many of those jerks, presumably, have a pretty high moral opinion of themselves, or at least a moderate opinion of themselves. They don’t think of themselves as jerks, because jerk self-knowledge is hard to come by.

Psychologist Simine Vazire at the University of California, Davis argues that we tend to have good self-knowledge of our own traits when those traits are both evaluatively neutral (in the sense that it’s not especially good or bad to have those traits), and straightforwardly observable.

America, Home of the free and land of the brave? I'm having my doubts.

The deputies explained Florida’s stay-at-home order and the crowd dispersed, apparently before the main event.

People made hundreds of calls to law enforcement agencies across Tampa Bay over the past two weeks to complain about neighbors not following stay-at-home orders, at least as they saw it.

Often the officers arrived to find nothing enforceable going on. Sometimes the offenders had already left, and sometimes there was no offense to begin with. Other times they found clear violations, explained the issue, and people listened. Very few got more than a warning.


Great everybody's neighbor is a fucking Gladys Kravitz

Jeez! Who would have thought introducing smoke into your lungs was unhealthy?

In the days and weeks leading up to stay-in-place orders and lockdowns, legal cannabis sales spiked.

Some studies and anecdotal reports suggest marijuana can help people cope with anxiety, which is being felt deeply across the world as the coronavirus pandemic continues.

But lung health experts warn that smoking marijuana regularly could increase a person's risk of contracting COVID-19, and also having more severe symptoms and complications from the disease, given evidence on tobacco and COVID-19, and what we already know about how heavy marijuana-smoking can impact the lungs.

What a waste of fine Italian cuisine. Genius Award Winner.

APRIL 7--A Florida Woman is facing a felony domestic battery charge after allegedly clobbering a man with a can of SpaghettiOs, a blow that left the victim with a large laceration on his head, cops say.

According to an arrest affidavit, the victim told police that after arriving “home from the hospital” Saturday afternoon he got into a verbal argument with Shadae Miranda. The victim and Miranda, 30, were sharing a room at a Travel Inn motel in Fort Pierce.

The affidavit, released by police, has the victim’s name redacted as well as details of what prompted the couple’s fight.

The man told cops that he sought to deescalate the situation by gathering some of his belongings and stepping outside the room, where he ended up sitting in a lawn chair. Miranda, cops allege, began striking the victim while he was still inside the room.
