Teh Squeaky Wheel
My brain had a difficult time parsing what that mean thread kitteh was standing on. Maaaan…I hope I’m not turning into Uncle Choo-Choo already. (I haven’t fallen up any stairs yet, so maybe I’ll be okay.)
Not to be too cynical about the horrific shooting in Boulder, but “I question the timing”. (Which is not meant to be disrespectful of the fatalities.) 48 hour rule is in effect; I’m skeptical we’ll ever get the real story, as too many people have an agenda re grabbing guns.
(Funny how that 2017 shooting in Vegas fell off the radar pretty quickly; I wonder what about it was so hinky about it that it quickly became a non-event…)
I still have no idea what the thread kitteh is standing on. looks like a 3D realized Escher thing to me.
paddy should have seen it, it is a patio chair. The cat’s right forepaw is against the seat back and the armrests are in the background and foreground. The dog is at the front.
Yes, I did, but it’s been a long and busy day and I haven’t had time to comment.
Yeah I wonder sometimes if there are scores of insane leftists who just shoot up public venues because they believe it will advance “the cause”….
Good morning, Mac, and Fatwa.
Regarding Boulder, I don’t question the timing as these types of incidents occur like clockwork; there’s always pending legislation and the anti-2A groups with their playbooks ready to go.
Here’s my conspiracy theory of the week. Given the way China treated the Biden administration last weekend, is it possible that Covid-19 was released deliberately, by China, with the sole purpose the taking down of Donald Trump?
Gain of function research on viruses, which is basically research to allow weaponization of viruses, was halted in the U.S. in 2014. The feds “paused the release of federal funding for GOF studies anticipated to enhance the pathogenicity or transmissibility among mammals by respiratory droplets of influenza, MERS, or SARS viruses.” Dr. Fauci then released grant funding to the Wuhan lab that released (accidentally or not) the SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) virus to conduct GOF testing on corona viruses.
You know what that means? It means this story is about to go down the memory hole with no one knowing what the shooter’s motive was.
The media’s memory hole must be getting quite full.
Well, it is a rather large hole.
Was he a member of Tentheads for Trump or MAGA Muslims?
Happy Tuesday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, Mac, and Sven!
Google updated a portion of their Android OS yesterday and bricked millions of phones across the globe, mine included. On Android 11 you can remove the update, but not on Android 8, which is what I’m running. Google “is aware of the problem and working on a solution”. Great. Thanks. So any app that can display web content -- which includes all add-supported apps and all Google apps, like Gmail -- crashes immediately after launching. Oh, and that includes the keyboard app I use.
Thanks, Google. Thanks a fsck!
Hiya, Mac, Sven and Paddy!
The Boulder shooter’s full name is Ahmad Al Aliwi Alissa.
His family has already claimed he was mentally ill, which brings two questions immediately to mind:
1) How did he obtain his weapon?
2) Does his (alleged) “mental illness” begin with an “I”? 👿
Bummer about your phone; hope Google creates an easy, fast fix.
I got a notification for the update yesterday and was waiting until the end of my workday to install it, by which time the notification had disappeared and there was -- according to my phone -- no update pending.
If the shooter was truly armed with an AR-15 style weapon, then the media and pundits can still safely drop their white supremacist/MAGA angle and switch to plan b which is why do we allow military style weapons to be sold to civilians. Unless he’s really a white-muslim like Zimmerman was a white-hispanic.
Teh original is entitled “Cat and Dog, by M. C. Escher.
Or “Paddy O’Furnijur”
Are you saying something about me is just not right?
I hope your day went well, Paddy. It did not sound promising with the phone issues.
