The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"The scale of this ecological disaster is unprecedented in Poland. It's a catastrophe. We have never found so many dead creatures, so many dead fish, clams or snails. It's the first time it's happened, and it is a serious warning." Andrzej Kapusta, of the Inland Fisheries Institute


Quote II

"I didn't realize that I had been struck by lightning, I was more embarrassed because I thought I tripped and fell on the ground. Then, I realized I couldn't move, I couldn't speak and I couldn't do anything." Emma Eggler


Quote III

“Absolutely, 100 percent, they wanted me to be murdered, death by cop. That’s what swatting is. And they were doing this in hopes that the police would kill me,” Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-GA)

The Comment of The Week



350
...
You miss the point.
The past is always gone, it will never come back.
The trick is always making something useful for the future.
There is never a return to "normal" there is only making tomorrow flourish.

That was true in 1950, it is true today.

Frankly I don't give a damn what you do with them. Insects are insects. It doesn't matter how much sugar, fat & cholesterol you add. I for one will not eat them.

A spoonful of sugar may help the mealworms go down.

Adding sugars to powdered, cooked mealworms creates a seasoning with an appetizing “meatlike” odor, researchers report August 24 at the American Chemical Society fall meeting in Chicago.

Some insects have been found to be an environmentally friendly alternative to other animal protein because they require less land and water to raise (SN: 5/11/19). But many people in the United States and other Western countries, where insects aren’t eaten widely, generally find the idea of chomping down on bugs unappetizing.

Spare the rod, spoil the child? I think there are better ways to control a classroom.

The Cassville School Board in Barry County recently approved a program that will allow teachers to spank students as a form of punishment for misbehaving in class. According to The Daily Beast, the new policy was approved in June, and parents were notified of this change on Tuesday.

Parents will be able to vote and decide wether they would like their child to be included in the program. They were sent a form for each child that allows them to make this decision. Children whose parents opt out of the program will not be spanked.

"We respect the decision of every parent, whatever decision they make," Superintendent Merlyn Johnson told the Springfield News-Leader. The Springfield News-Leader noted that reprimanding children by spanking them on the butt is legal throughout Missouri. Johnson mentioned that many parents are actually in favor of the program, though people who hear word of it through social media might not react in the same manner.

I thought medical doctors were not supposed to do harm.

An Australian woman who regrets attempting to transition into a man is suing the psychiatrist who approved her taking cross-sex hormones after just one meeting.

The psychiatrist went on to approve surgeries to remove both of her breasts and her uterus, which the patient now describes as “absolutely devastating.”

Finally some sanity regarding one's religious beliefs. Federal court rules against HHS requiring religious doctors to perform gender transitions

A federal appeals court on Friday blocked President Biden’s Health and Human Services mandate that would have forced religious doctors and hospitals to perform transgender procedures — including on children.

In a unanimous ruling from the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the three-judge panel said the lower court was right to issue a permanent injunction that protects a healthcare network of nearly 20,000 religious doctors and medical providers from performing abortions and transgender care.

Well this certainly screws up the acronym of LGBT. Real Lesbians asked to leave Cardiff pride parade because of mentally ill men who think they are women.***SNORT***

Police told a group of lesbians to leave a gay pride march in Cardiff after an officer was filmed telling the gender-critical women to step aside due to 'confrontation' with a transgender marchers and their supporters.

The activist group ‘Get The L Out UK’, which 'stands against transgenderism', shared footage from yesterday's Cardiff Pride event.

In the clip, two rival marchers can be seen shouting at each other on St Mary Street during the LGBT march.

'I'm fed up with people getting killed every day!' Ozzy Osbourne reveals he's moving back to the UK with wife Sharon because he 'doesn't want to die' in 'crazy' America

The singer, 73, who has resided in Beverly Hills for over 25 years, claimed 'everything's ridiculous' Stateside and highlighted its history of school shootings

Joined by his music manager wife Sharon, 69, he is thought to be relocating to their 120-year-old Grade II listed Buckinghamshire pile Welders House
Despite California's Forest Lawn cemetery being the favoured burial ground by celebrities such as Paul Walker, Brittany Murphy and Bette Davis, Ozzy made it crystal clear that he doesn't want to follow suit

He said: 'I'm English. I want to be back. But, saying that, if my wife said we've got to go and live in Timbuktu, I'll go. It's just time for me to come home'

Some lighthearted news. I would have laughed as well.

'My sister named her baby after a bacteria - she's mad at me for laughing'
A woman has admitted she burst out laughing when she heard what her sister was planning to call her daughter - and was told she'd ruined her baby shower in the process


Choosing a baby name isn't always easy, and for many parents, there's often a struggle between picking out a traditional name, or going for something a little more unique. And while it's important for parents to remember they're free to choose whatever name they want for their little one, there will almost always be people who judge their decisions.

One woman, for example, was recently booted out of her sister's baby shower when she burst out laughing after discovering the name she was set to give her little girl. The woman claimed her sister and her husband had decided to merge their names together to come up with the moniker for their impending arrival - but it ended up sounding like a bacteria.

Hopefully Uber rides are a set price and don't use meters. Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

An Uber driver in New York City is being hailed as a hero after helping two people escape a burning building in Brooklyn.

Fritz Sam, 54, said he was taking a passenger to LaGuardia Airport last Wednesday morning when he came across a four-story apartment building that was on fire.

Sam said he noticed flames coming out of a second-floor window but did not see any first responders at the scene yet, so he sprung into action.

"I asked my passenger, 'Can I pull over? Maybe we can help'," he told TODAY. "So we got out of the car and ran over there."

"When I thought there might be someone inside that building, there was something in me that couldn't hold back, and I just had to go inside," Sam said.
