The Quotes of The Day


Quote I

“Like any curious human being, I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, I really want to be there for this because there’s no way anybody’s gonna believe this. I can’t even believe it.”
Firefighter Gunnar Romatz


Quote II

“Every few weeks I get a call from a doctor in the Boston area – a different doctor every time – about a case they can’t solve,” Andrej Spec, Associate Professor of Medicine at Washington University in St. Louis


Quote III

“But I would certainly view my obligation, the administration’s obligation to follow the law and the fact that they have disrespected the law is not a precedent I would hope that would be broadly followed. We’ll have to look at the legitimacy or lack of legitimacy of what they do.” Rep. Adam Schiff (Commie-CA)


This smarmy swamp creature still hasn't been punished for his Russia Bullshit.

NATIONAL FRENCH TOAST DAY

I've never lost a child of mine to death let alone suicide. I can't even imagine the grief this family is facing. However, is Stanford University responsible for a bright adult's death? I think there is more to the story than is being reported.


The parents of Katie Meyer have filed a wrongful-death lawsuit against Stanford University months after the 22-year-old soccer captain was found dead in her dorm room.

The complaint, filed Wednesday in Santa Clara County Superior Court, names several university administrators and alleges that a disciplinary letter sent to Meyers on Feb. 28 was a form of “institutional bullying” and caused distress that “impulsively led her to suicide” that night.

“The actions that led to the death of Katie Meyer began and ended with Stanford University,” the lawsuit claimed.


Stanford’s Office of Community Standards sent Meyer the formal disciplinary charges by email. The five-page letter addressed an August 2021 incident in which she allegedly spilled coffee on a football player while riding her bike.

Meyer believed that he had sexually assaulted a freshman teammate of hers who was a minor at the time.


Though the incident was reported to the university last year, the football player faced no disciplinary actions, the suit claimed, and wasn’t dismissed from the team.

Instead, Meyer received a letter after hours and on the last day disciplinary charges could be brought. It outlined her “potential removal” from the university while placing a hold on her degree three months shy of graduation.

That night, she responded with an email that expressed how “shocked and distraught” she was.

The suit further claimed that the university failed to immediately follow up with a wellness check.

Stanford spokesperson Dee Mostofi disagreed that the university bore any responsibility for Meyer’s suicide.

“The Stanford community continues to grieve Katie’s tragic death,” Mostofi wrote in a statement, “and we sympathize with her family for the unimaginable pain that Katie’s passing has caused them.”

Always unload your shotgun around your clumsy dog. Man's best friend blows him away.

A new dad tragically died after he was accidentally shot by his own dog during a hunting excursion in Turkey over Thanksgiving weekend.

The freak accident occurred while Ozgur Gevrekoglu, 32, was pursuing game with his pals on the Kizlan Plateau in Samsun Province last weekend, Newsflash reported.

While the expedition went off without a hitch, disaster struck while the hunter was packing up to leave.

Gevrekoglu was reportedly putting his pet dog in the trunk of the car, when its paw inadvertently touched the trigger of the still-loaded shotgun, causing the weapon to discharge into the sportsman at close range.

Nothing to indicate a tragic auto accident or suicide, was it the Kung Flu prick which did him in?

The finance world has been rocked by the sudden and unexpected death of a young crypto founder at the age of just 30.

Tiantian Kullander, the co-founder of Hong Kong-based digital asset company Amber Group, died in his sleep on November 23, with the news confirmed on the company’s website “with the deepest sadness and a heavy heart”.

Kullander, known affectionately as “TT,” launched Amber in 2017 with a group of finance insiders, including former Goldman Sachs Group and Morgan Stanley workers.

Before that, he worked as a trader at both finance giants, and in 2019 earned a coveted spot on the Forbes 30 Under 30 list, which recognizes the most talented ​​emerging entrepreneurs and leaders.


Another strange death. Incapacitated pilot causes flight to return. And then passes away. Kung Flu prick?

American Eagle Flight 3556 had previously departed from Chicago O’Hare Airport on Saturday night. The flight was originally bound for Columbus, Ohio, according to CNBC.

It is always fun to post these type of stories in The ONT. Play stupid games and win stupid prizes.

The resident of a home in DeKalb County, Georgia, opened fire on four alleged robbery suspects, killing one and wounding three, around 5 p.m. Friday.

FOX 5 notes that police arrived on scene and found three wounded individuals outside the home. Those individuals were “23-year-old Jacqueze Grier, 18-year-old Taneaious McCune and a 15-year-old boy.”


Damn Amish and their Rumspringa.

I don't know if he is qualified. But, competition for the RNC Chairman position is what is needed. My Pillow founder Mike Lindell is challenging the status quo at the RNC.

MyPillow CEO Mike Lindell is running for RNC chair against incumbent Ronna McDaniel.

The Trump ally announced his bid on Monday morning on his "Frank Speech" streaming platform.

Lindell accused the RNC of collecting donor cash but not investigating baseless claims of voter fraud.


Perhaps if he wins I'll contribute once again to the national GOP.
