The Quotes of The Day

Quote I

"He will have no contact with other lawyers or personnel at the firm on substantive matters relating to the Summit during the period that he is special envoy," Wendy Morigi

Quote II

“Some of them had left CNN to go to streaming. Some of them had left other places, moved across the country. And so, I think you’re seeing a lot of the anchors at CNN+ doing everything they can to protect the people that were working on their team and to make sure they either get a safe landing at CNN or someplace else,”Chris Wallace.

Quote III

As is always the case with propaganda, this version of events is manipulated to bring an emotional response to the benefit of special interests. Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-TX)

Some days are just shittier than others.

Lady Drops Her Phone in an Outhouse, Tries to Retrieve It and Falls in — Says the Fire Department

Sometimes, your day goes to crap. Such a description seems apt for a woodsy woman who recently had to dial 911.

The lady and her dog had gone for a hike in northwest Washington’s Olympic National Forest. At some point, she sensed nature’s call.

Surprising statistics? I don't think so.

Virtual meeting study: 50% of participants arrive late, 22% don’t say anything


The rise of video conferencing has opened up new ways to analyze the effectiveness of meetings.

Seattle startup Read just released its first study after measuring more than 3 million virtual meeting minutes since launching in September, when it announced its $10 million seed round. The company’s software measures engagement and sentiment of participants on video meetings.

For meetings with seven or more people, some of the findings include:

50% of participants arrive late
40% have below average or poor engagement
22% of participants don’t say a single word
11% don’t have video or audio on


No mention of the Jeffrey Toobins of the world jacking off.

New Contact Sport Promises the Most Exciting Part of Hockey Minus the Hockey

If you’re of the opinion that fights are the most exciting part of ice hockey, you’re probably going to love Ice Wars, a new combat sports league that pits ice hockey enforcers against each other.

Take away the sticks, the puck and the nets, and you’re left with hockey players with nothing better to do than beat each other to a pulp for the entertainment of paying spectators. That’s essentially the idea behind Ice Wars, a soon-to-debut combat sports league featuring ice hockey enforcers fighting for money. A match will consist of two, one-minute rounds with a 30-second “ice breaker” round in the event that the fighters each win one round

Surprise: Ex-general pushing for NATO troops in Ukraine has weapons industry ties
Ret. US Gen. Philip Breedlove wants to escalate the military conflict with Russia but media outlets don’t disclose he works for defense firms.


Weapons companies and military contractors stand to book new orders and enjoy heightened demand for new weapons systems, as the United States and NATO countries scale up spending in response to Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Coincidentally or not, one of the most high-profile advocates for dramatically escalating NATO’s involvement in the war — literally calling for putting troops and arms inside Ukraine — quietly moonlights as a consultant for weapons firms and defense contractors, interests that presumably stand to benefit from a direct conflict between NATO and Russia.

More importantly, that conflict of interest hasn’t been disclosed in any of his media appearances or interviews.

On Sunday, retired U.S. general and former top NATO commander Gen. Philip Breedlove told The Times of London:

The US Chair Force Air Force has been taken over by the absurd. The Air Force is trusting the internet to name its ridiculous new cybersecurity mascot

Cybersecurity. It’s important stuff. There’s a lot of critical data out there that you don’t want bad actors snooping on.

That is why the Air Force apparently needs a cybersecurity mascot. A caped robot with a shield and lightning bolt adorned helmet, here to ask you if you’ve tried turning your computer off and on again and presumably solving the myriad of technical issues that come with the territory when you’re using decades-old software.

Everything. And I mean everything is Racist.

We literally don’t even know where to start with this latest insane story from the wonderful world of academia, this time from Seattle Pacific University. In fact, insane may be a vast understatement.

In a total and complete waste of student tuition funds, a study was conducted that sought an answer to the age-old question—are whiteboards racist? Seriously.

The investigation, “Observing Whiteness in Introductory Physics: A Case Study” was published in March in Physical Review Physics Education Research (PRPER). In that study, three students were observed where they attempted to solve a physics problem and analyzed how “whiteness” is present in academia, Campus Reform reports.

On Sunday's ONT we covered the GM Spark EV where GM was making the battery replacement obsolete. Will we see the same thing with their EV Corvette?

It’s official: A Chevrolet Corvette EV is coming. Even better, an electrified Corvette is coming as soon as next year.


GM President Mark Reuss made the announcement this morning in a post on LinkedIn. He included a clip that shows an all-wheel-drive system on Corvette for the first time.

“Some time ago, we moved the Corvette team into the EV space in Warren, Michigan, and when we revealed the new mid-engine Corvette, I said there would be ‘more to come,'” Reuss said before answering “the question I’ve been asked countless times.”

It appears that lithium batteries will cost more in the near future. Mexico nationalizes lithium industry.

A newly passed mining reform recognizes lithium as a national heritage and grants the state the exclusive right to explore, exploit and use the valuable metal

Mexico has officially nationalized its lithium industry. On April 21, the bill, proposed by President Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), that modified the mining law to give the state the exclusive right to explore, exploit and use the valuable metal entered into force. According to the law, published in the Official Gazette of the Federation, the executive or the president now has 90 days to create a decentralized state company that will deal with all lithium-related matters.

The reform was approved in a record time in both houses of the Congress. President AMLO presented it in the Chamber of Deputies on April 18. The same day, the lower house discussed the reform, voted on it and passed it with 275 votes in favor, 24 against and 187 abstentions. The next day, on April 19, the Senate also debated the reform and sanctioned it with 87 votes in favor, 20 against and 16 abstentions.

Reason #2,039 to laugh at Jen Psaki and her Mush Brain employer.

Alina Kabaeva, a famed Russian gymnast turned apparent romantic partner of Russian President Vladimir Putin, is a potential target for sanctions, the Biden administration said, after questions were raised this week about the lack of penalties against her.

“No one is safe from our sanctions,” White House press secretary Jen Psaki said Monday, after the Wall Street Journal reported that the United States had made an “11th-hour decision” to remove Kabaeva from a set of new sanctions.

“There’s more we will likely do,” Psaki said.

Since Russia’s Feb. 24 invasion of Ukraine, the United States has sanctioned Putin, his associates and even two of his daughters. President Biden also said last month — before the White House backtracked on his remark — that Putin “cannot remain in power.”

But Kabaeva is considered so close to Putin, the Journal reported, that sanctions against her could risk further disrupting relations between Washington and Moscow. Global leaders are pushing for Russia to commit to meaningful peace talks, and Russia’s ambassador in Washington, Anatoly Antonov, said this week that the Kremlin wants to “stabilize” and “develop”

The phrase "This beer tastes like piss". Well thank our Genius Award Winner.

Faced with a locked bathroom at a convenience store, a Florida Man decided to instead relieve himself inside the business’s beer cave, ruining $113.36 in merchandise, police report.

According to an arrest report, Clarence Patterson, 61, entered the Hop & Pop store Saturday afternoon and proceeded to the restroom, which was locked. Patterson “then entered the ‘beer cave’ making the appearance he was looking at the merchandise inside.”

Patterson, who lives about two miles from the store in Rockledge, a city 50 miles east of Orlando, then “faced toward the alcohol cases on the shelves,” unzipped his pants, and began urinating.

“There were six cases of beer total that were damaged and could no longer be sold,” a cop reported, adding that the beer cave incident was recorded by a store surveillance camera.
