The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

"I’m happy that he’s going to be going home to his family. And that even if you’re not moved by, again, the morality of having these folks go back home, despite serving sentences that were in excess to what the crime was, from a financial burden, that’s no longer on the state, the taxpayers." PA Lt. Gov. John Fetterman

Quote II

“And ultimately this is also a tremendous opportunity. It’s a tremendous opportunity to once and for all remove the dependence on Russian energy and thus to take away from Vladimir Putin the weaponization of energy as a means of advancing his imperial designs. That’s very significant and that offers tremendous strategic opportunity for the years to come.” U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken


Yes, all of that ready to use "green energy" will keep Europe warm.

Quote III

“Here we go again! Another Fake book is out, this one, supposedly very boring and stale, by self appointed head case, Failing (unfunded liability!) New York Times writer, Maggie Haberman. In it she tells many made up stories, with zero fact checking or confirmation by anyone who would know, like me,” President Donald Trump

Quote IV

"I'm hoping they didn't find anybody, but by and large, you'd rather not know." Hurricane Ian survivor David Dean


Quote V

“Slow is smooth, smooth is fast. Dusting off the cobwebs and gaining new skills. Thanks to The Tactical Games for an incredible day of training,” Former Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard

One thing I dislike about my Apple products a different charger than other products. The EU says that will change there.

mall electronic devices sold in the EU will be required to use the same charging cable by 2024 under a new law that will force Apple to change the charger on the iPhone.

Tech firms will be required to move to the USB-C under the new regulation, which is extended to laptops from 2026.

Most phone and tablet manufacturers have already switched to that new standard. Apple has already switched its MacBook and iPad to USB-C but has stuck with its own Lightning cable for the iPhone.

Other rumours have suggested that Apple may instead be looking to get rid of the charging plug entirely, and instead focus solely on wireless charging. The EU has said that it will be introducing new requirements for wireless charging by the end of 2024.

Talk about over active imaginations, is that gunfire? Nope, just popcorn popping.

Jersey City’s Newport Centre Mall was the center of a social media storm over the weekend as online posters alleged a possible active shooter situation, but it turned out to be just a malfunctioning popcorn machine.

Around 3:30 on Saturday, Oct 1, the first of nine calls were made to the Jersey City Police Department about a possible active shooter situation at the three-level mall near the Downtown area.

The Handyman's secret weapon, Duct Tape. Not sure it was meant for airliners.

Duct tape on a plane initially thought to be holding its wing together has been revealed as having a far less questionable purpose.

The tape made for an alarming sight what was thought to be a Boeing 787-9 Dreamliner for Australian opera singer David Wakeham who last week shared a photo to Twitter, where it later went viral.

“When choosing your favourite airline, choose wisely. Profits before safety,” his post, which was also shared to Reddit, read.

While at the time it was joked the tape was used for “temporary repairs”, it has since been identified as commonly used “speed tape”, which was most likely used to cover peeling paint, according to CheckMate, a weekly fact checking newsletter from RMIT and ABC

Just another Ivy League professor who should be nowhere near young adults, hell any adults.

A top Ivy League professor has warned her colleagues at the World Economic Forum (WEF) that free speech is “leading to harm” because it is currently “legal.”

Claire Wardle, a Brown University professor and member of the WEF, expressed her frustration that the First Amendment allows people to legally speak freely, even if they express views that conflict with the official narrative.

She argued during a World Economic Forum panel discussion that the lack of limitations on free speech is to blame for “misinformation” spreading online because it is not illegal.

Wardle suggested that it may be necessary to change free speech laws to prevent “low-level” or “hateful” information from being repeated.

One would think life long bureaucrats, fat cat union members and members of the rank and file of NYC's Public Works Department could have come up with a plan, for less than $4 Million.

The city has hired the controversial consulting firm McKinsey & Company to study its waste containerization needs and design a citywide pilot program, Streetsblog has learned.

For the next 20 weeks, the global management consulting firm will assess streets across the city with an eye toward what could work in a large, diverse urban environment and identify models for a such as program from among the many different solutions around the world — working with the Sanitation Department to figure out the kinds of containers it needs, find appropriate vendors, and structure costs.

New York is decades behind other world capitals in terms of waste collection and containerization, so there are many models from which to choose. (Barcelona and other cities have underground trash bins that are lifted out for collection.)

Multiple winners in this game. Don't ever leave your keys in a luxury car. Because you know what can happen. Genius Award Winners.

A teen in Florida is dead and another is in critical condition after they found and allegedly stole a Maserati sports car.

A group of three teens in Pinellas County, Florida, allegedly broke into a Maserati on Sunday and found the keys had been left inside. They then proceeded to take the car, but eventually crashed the vehicle. One teen died in the accident and another is in critical condition, police said.

Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri held a press conference near the scene of the crash. He identified the boys as Keondrick Lang, 15, Mario Bonilla, 15, and Malachi Daniels, 16. According to the sheriff, the boys were wandering through the neighbourhood checking door handles to see if they could enter any of the parked vehicles in the area when they found that the Maserati's door was unlocked.

A very special day and Tonight's Feel Good Story of The Day.

Sam Moorfoot is 29 years old and has Down Syndrome. He is the head water boy for the Geelong Football Club from Victoria, Australia -- also known as the Cats.

Last weekend, Geelong defeated the Sydney Swans to win the cup in the AFL Grand Final (similar to the Super Bowl in the US).

After the game, the Cats' captain Joel Selwood spotted Moorfoot in the stands and invited him onto the field at Melbourne Criket Ground (MCG) to take part in the lap of honor.

"I'm very proud of my boys to win a premiership," Moorfoot told AAP. "Joel said he wanted to get me on the ground. That was the moment of my life, what an honor."

One of our regulars passed this along, so I thought I would share.

Today is the 200th anniversary of the birth of Rutherford Birchard Hayes, 19th President of the United States (1822 - 1893). He caught more bullets than any other future U.S. President as a Civil War general. While he became president as part of a corrupt bargain in 1877 (partly due to Democrats' suppression of balck votes that made the election controversial) and had to end Reconstruction, he still pushed hard for civil rights, education reform, and civil service reform. In his personal life, he contributed to increasing education among poor blacks in the South. While he is not known for being as effective as many other presidents, he still stood up against corrupt political machines the best he could.

Anyway, you can look him up!

On this day.
