This is a place where I can post whatever I'm thinking. This stops me from needing multiple threads.

Next year ends the dark ages in US&A. 20 years after the famous law case Disney v. everything holy, good and right in which Disney won a landslide victory, the public domain became frozen in the US (and by consequence, in Canada). Next year it is unfrozen, and films from 1923 are entering the public domain. It would have been better to have it at 74 years since this is a major dick-move. For example the local film club is doing (actually it already happened) a 75-years anniversary festival for Safety Last, a famous Harold Lloyd movie (mostly famous because of just one scene where he's dangling from the clock). They brought in a live orchestra to play alongside the silent movie. They had to pay distribution rights for that, whereas if they would have waited 12 months and had a 76-year anniversary party it would have been free, just need to pay the orchestra. I'd rather money go to living, active artists than corporations.

So people aren't so good at math roflmao! It's 95 years, I was just testing to see if anybody is reading.

Anyways, if you like giant data sets, check out this interesting one:
https://www.propublica.org/datastore/dataset/chicago-police-clear-gang-data

Two gangs, the Four Corner Hustlers and New Breed have members that are 132 years old. That's pretty impressive.

It's a list of all selected gang members in Chicago (that's the place with the terrible pizza, which is unfortunate since the name means garlic).

Meanwhile, in Canada:

There's quite a bit of uproar over this.

Never minding the obvious answers "slavery means no ridiculous names like Trameka" and "people in school know grammar". There is a serious question. If slavery doesn't have any positives, why has it been practiced through all of recorded history in many different cultures all over the world?

This is a test of the emergency broadcast system:

Well, it failed.

There should be a website that constantly feeds alerts from all over the world. All the weather watches and warnings, all the breaking news reports and the volcanos and the earthquakes and the traffic accidents and construction delays.

Overheard at the gym this week:
guy1: "I'm not a small guy. Don't forget I've got a 21-inch neck"
guy2: "Well my chest is 44 inches!"

girl running: "remember the last time we took a cab? I almost peed myself"

woman stretching: "stop looking at my ass" (not so much overheard as directed at me)

There is no doubt that the effectiveness of vigilante justice is directly correlated to Second Amendment rights. Alaska is the only state in which it is legal to own a bazooka or a nuclear weapon, with no firearms restrictions whatsoever. It is also the only state where proper justice is served:
https://www.adn.com/alaska-news/anchorage/2018/04/25/dumpster-justice-the-feud-between-2-men-over-a-water-heater-just-got-weirder/

I'm not sure why illegal dumpers aren't automatically executed. It's not that dumping is that bad of a crime per se, it's just that the reprehensible filth who would do such an act obviously have no moral compass and can not in any way contribute positively to society.

The best part is that there was an identical incident - also in China - a year or two ago.

[Desmond] Morris has a light touch and a witty way of giving each life dashes of Surrealist brio. He writes of Agar’s voyage with her family from Argentina to England: ‘On the journey, they were accompanied by a cow and an orchestra to provide them with fresh milk and music.’ After the war, Agar played ‘musical chairs with ex-Prime Minister Herbert Asquith – she was told she had to let him win’. Later, she refused to marry a Belgian prince ‘on the grounds that she disliked Brussels sprouts’. According to her eventual husband, she was always ‘trying to do something in a way that cannot be done, such as making love standing up in a hammock’.

Surrealist sex sounds exhausting. When Duchamp married Lydie Sarazin-Levassor (‘the sweetly innocent, overweight daughter of a wealthy industrialist,’ writes Morris) she shaved her pubic hair because he found female hair disgusting. She was so dismayed by his preference for chess over being with her that one night she glued all his pieces to the chessboard. She later divorced Duchamp for desertion.

Breton took his wife to Vienna on their honeymoon so he could meet Sigmund Freud. Freud was apparently so dismissive of Breton that the artist refused to talk about the encounter. Later, he called Freud ‘a little old man with no style’. The marriage of Roland Penrose and Lee Miller faltered after she lost interest in sex following the birth of her son. Penrose took up with a trapeze artist called Diane Deriaz and then had an affair with Peggy Guggenheim. In her memoirs, Guggenheim called him a bad painter who had tied her up with ivory bracelets when they made love. Penrose asked her to remove the ‘bad painter’ line from subsequent editions and to change the ivory bracelets to ordinary police handcuffs. She agreed to the first request, but declined the latter. Dalí’s sexual fears and deviancies are well rehearsed and Morris gives only a potted summary – a mercy.


Before you ask, yes, it's that Desmond Morris.
