My luck is so bad that if I bought a cemetery, people would stop dying.
[Just One Truth?] “The Real Story of January 6” So you want us to believe this is the only source that got the facts correct? The videos were faked?
The Epoch Times is a far-right international multi-language newspaper and media company affiliated with the Falun Gong new religious movement. The newspaper, based in New York City, is part of the Epoch Media Group, which also operates New Tang Dynasty Television.
The Epoch Media Group’s news sites and YouTube channels have promoted conspiracy theories such as QAnon, anti-vaccine misinformation and false claims of fraud in the 2020 United States presidential election.
The 2020 Election fraud is the funniest BS after over 60 court cases found NO EVIDENCE of fraud widespread enough to have affected the outcome, most cases dismissed due to lack of evidence.
No thanks, I prefer news coverage from organizations with proven records of providing factual information.

[Contrail] A jet’s contrails (or white trails) consist of water vapor and can be used to predict the weather. A thin, shorter tail indicates low humidity and fair weather. A thick, longer lasting tail signifies the early indication of a storm. Sorry conspiracy buffs, they are not used to poison you
[Captain Doom and Gloom] Great idea to stop wars, or at least slow them down. When the factions ask for money from us, give it to them in $1 bills only.  That should slow them down. We could print the bills on recycled trash.


If the Titanic sank today.

[Large Gap in Population Fossil Record] We may finally have an explanation for the large gap in the African and Eurasian fossil record. Researchers say the population of human ancestors crashed likely between 800,000 and 900,000 years ago. They estimate that 98.7 percent of the population was lost at the beginning of the ancestral bottleneck, which lasted 117,000 years. Some of the potential reasons behind the drop revolve around extreme changes in the climate. Temperatures dropped, severe droughts persisted, and food sources were likely scarce. But like any good discovery, this one yields more questions than answers. Read more about this mass die-off—and what it could tell us about our ancestors. Link

Should the end of the toilet paper hang over the top of the roll – or be tucked underneath it and hang down the wall? We may finally have an answer to whether toilet paper goes over or under, courtesy of an 1891 patent by New York businessman Seth Wheeler.
Credited by some as America’s founding father of toilet paper, Wheeler patented the first perforated wipes in 1871 and launched his Albany Perforated Wrapping Paper Company in 1877, two years before the Scott brothers debuted their blockbuster brand. Wheeler filed dozens of patents until the 1920s, including those for toilet paper crimped into ornamental patterns and disposable “bosom pads” meant to replace expensive corsets. But his greatest invention was the roll-and-handles design in 1891—a now-ubiquitous fixture whose patent illustration solved the toilet paper over or under issue before it even started. Take a look at the official and patented design photo.  Now you know.
[Ugly] Last week, I stated this woman was the ugliest woman I had ever seen. I have since been visited by her sister, and now wish to withdraw that statement.

Oh look! A Canadian Uber.

I was married by a judge.  I should have asked for a jury.
Fox has made the decision to not carry Mike Lindell‘s infomercials anymore. People like Brent Terhune are royally pissed off and aren’t going to take it lying down! Where are you going to go now if you want a nice pair of sheets to lie on and/or wear? What’s so wrong with a guy trying to make an honest living trying to overturn elections and selling slippers? And Lindell was about to release MeinKampfyPillow – the overstuffed pillow in the shape of Trump’s ass.
