The Ice Governed by international treaty and dedicated to science, Antarctica is the driest, windiest, coldest, and highest continent on the planet. To photograph in such a place is tantamount to practicing art on another planet.
There’s an entire culture of ugly people who want to get on stage and be looked at. They use burlesque as a cover.
I didn’t know they existed.
And of course they are uniquely suffering from the lockdownhttps://t.co/1o9uYFL5yo

How a Texas Gunfighter Cop Stopped the Isis Attack in Garland, Texas Gregory Stevens draws his Glock 21 .45 from his retention holster. Elton Simpson brings up the AK clone. The shots exchanged are so close as to be simultaneous. Greg cannot determine who shot first. All three combatants are wearing soft body armor. Simpson misses. One of the 230 grain Gold Dot hollow points Greg is launching from the Glock, probably the first, smashes Simpson’s femur. More rounds follow as Simpson falls. He goes down, dropping the rifle. The driver, Nadir Soofi, is firing at Greg with a semi-automatic rifle. The rifle is equipped with a 100 round magazine. The rifle was either a detachable magazine-fed SKS or an AK clone. (The terrorists had three rifles with them) Greg shifts his aim to Soofi. He fires several rounds from his Glock. Soofi goes down, dropping the rifle.
Covid is science’s Chernobyl – We know that Chinese labs in the Wuhan area were experimenting with humanized bat coronaviruses. We know that Wuhan is not bat country; winter is not bat season; the Chinese are not bat eaters; and the corona bats are inedible microbats. We know the Chinese government refuses to release the records of Chinese bat-virus research. We know a “senior administration official”—Biden administration, that is, meaning straight outta the Deep State—says: This was just a peek under a curtain of an entire galaxy of activity, including labs and military labs in Beijing and Wuhan playing around with coronaviruses in ACE2 mice in unsafe labs, that isn’t understood in the West or even has precedent here.
Vox Popoli: The Not-White Party American politics have already transformedinto a white vs not-white power struggle, although a lot of whites either don’t realize this yet (Democrats) or are stubbornly in denial (Republicans).
The fact that whites, uniquely, don’t consider race part of their identity only proves how uniquely evil & racist they are. pic.twitter.com/DMEgdl4mn9

The Chanhassen Dinner Theater in Minnesota has canceled its production of Cinderella because it found that the cast was “too white” to go on.
Did the Coronavirus Escape From a Lab? There is no direct evidence for these zoonotic possibilities, just as there is no direct evidence for an experimental mishap — no written confession, no incriminating notebook, no official accident report. Certainty craves detail, and detail requires an investigation. It has been a full year, 80 million people have been infected, and, surprisingly, no public investigation has taken place. We still know very little about the origins of this disease.
The Chabuduo Mindset In China, the typical approach is summed up in one word: “chabuduo”, meaning “nearly” or “almost”. For most Chinese it also means “good enough”. You will hear this term a lot.
I guess it’s neither here nor there, but Reparations will be spent on malt liquor. Here’s the world historical outcome: a temporary spike in malt liquor sales.

The Humiliation Of Equality – William M. Briggs There are ways to fight back, even in the system. Look at this purple-headed horror, a female sports entertainer who wants pay equal to male sports entertainers, even though if poised against males she would be ground to dust. Never fail to remind her she is not their equal. And look at what the Army just did. They lowered standards of physical fitness for females because, obviously, they couldn’t keep up with men (the top standards for women are at the bottom, or lower, than the bottom standards for men). Yet if you buy the “equal pay for equal work” argument made by equalitarians, it follows Army females should be paid less, and far less, than men, since they can’t do the same jobs. Bring this up.
Do it wherever you can, and for as long as you can, before all speech is regulated.
The Best Coffee Shop in the People’s Green Socialist Republic of Santa Cruz, California There are some old codgers who have probably been awake for hours. I avoid them like the plague because I suspect them of wanting to induct me into their mutual misery society: You let me tell you about my colon; I will listen about your arthritis. Among those who sit alone, reading a newspaper is common. They read the local give-away sheet (surprisingly good though uneven), or the Santa Cruz Sentinel (bad spelling, good local coverage, bad international coverage), the San Jose Mercury News (there are a few techies left after the dot.com debacle), the San Francisco Chronicle (for bottom feeders like me), or the New York Times, of course. No one has the cojones to read the Wall Street Journal in public. (There is no free lunch; there would be a Hell’s worth of shunning to pay.)
The Comforts of the Throne “Cotton […] was expensive – at 4½d or 5d per pound too expensive for common men to use for wiping the ‘nether end’ – so where we find payments for “cotton for the lords stool’, or ‘cotton and urinals’, it indicates that Henry was present (or expected soon to arrive) at the places where the cotton was bought. It means that we end up tracing the movements of the future king in the most undignified way—like an animal, by his droppings—but biographers must sometimes stoop to such levels.”
Raconteur Report: And It’s… Media identified “White male” now ID’ed 20 hours later as Ahmad Imawannajihad, Syrian ISIS sympathizer, seen here in custody in Boulder yesterday immediately after gunning down nine private citizens aged between 20 and 65, and one responding police officer.
”It would be truly unfortunate if every time one of these events happened, someone gunned down 50 people at a mosque until the “moderate” muslims started handing over the radicals proactively to authorities, starting with their heads on platters, by way of apology.
Secret Cost of Google’s Data Centers: Billions of Gallons of Water | A few weeks earlier in nearby Mesa, Google proposed a plan for a giant data center among the cacti and tumbleweeds. The town is a founding member of the Arizona Municipal Water Users Association, but water conservation took a back seat in the deal it struck with the largest U.S. internet company. Google is guaranteed 1 million gallons a day to cool the data center, and up to 4 million gallons a day if it hits project milestones. If that was a pyramid of water jugs, it would tower thousands of feet into Arizona’s cloudless sky.
How to Safely Remove Bees for Relocation Working without a beekeeping suit or even gloves, Thompson begins by locating the hive with a thermal imager, cuts open the floor, and gently lifts up the flooring to reveal the hive.
Rising from the rubble: London pub rebuilt brick by brick after illegal bulldozing | The Carlton Tavern’s last orders were in April 2015. After being denied planning permission to convert it into 10 flats, and two days before Historic England was due to recommend the pub be granted Grade-II listed status, the owners ordered its demolition. Robertson and 5,300 other locals, including several local councillors, mobilised to persuade Westminster council to act. It ordered the owners, CTLX, to rebuild the Carlton brick by brick. A planning inquiry the following year confirmed the decision, ruling that the pub should be rebuilt “in facsimile”, from the red bricks to the distinctive tiled pub name.
