I got a gentle reminder in my work email yesterday from a co worker about the use of pronouns and would I like to add one to my signature block.

Talking of WTF's, how are you doing up there in Dante's land? I read that the National Forest is closed across 5 counties.

"'Cannibals' lured victim to cabin in the woods for genital surgery, Sheriff says"
Well, who am I to judge... We had a case of hotel room surgery gone wrong in Saskatchewan some years ago, but they weren't eating the leftover bits. I might put lunch on hold.

Am I trifle old fashioned in my approach to life or does one not do a 'nah, not happening' when the address of your upcoming surgery is given as the 'old wooden cabin in backwoods Oklahoma'? Having your toenails pulled might be one thing but interfering with one's waste disposal mechanisms is not the kind of surgery you want done by anyone who doesn't have a really good golf handicap...

In the case that happened here (at the hotel in Fort QuAppelle) the victim came with his mother, and like his counterpart down south, nearly bled to death. Safe to say everything is wrong with this; the who, the why, the how, the where, and there is no good when.

It's just so American to have a weapon ban, that specifically excludes guns.
Bellevue, WA, this weekend.

"all persons are prohibited from possessing any weapon (with the exception of firearms), "

I like how they claimed to have found a cache of weapons. They were rocks and sticks in a park. I guess the right to bear arms only applies to firearms and not to pieces of nature.

Absolutely no actual trouble was caused, looks like it was a stunt by the police to make people scared of the evil protesters, while they can also claim how awesome they are at stopping trouble.

It has come to my attention that a Nazi terrorist, currently in gaol and awaiting trial on illegally owning weapons and threatening journalists is having his defense funded by the NRA.

It's nothing new, they were supportive of Cody Wilson too, the printed gun paedo with ties to neo-nazi groups.
