Quote from: K_Dubb on Yesterday at 11:15:00 AMThe latest is people are driving to Canada to get the vaccine no questions asked in Vancouver (though BC now "strongly discourages" the practice) because the criteria even with the five-split doses mean thanks to concerns with equity you basically have to be a manwhore or homeless meth user to get it here.

You have to be exposed or gay AND have one of the following:

Sex with more than ten people in three months
Syphilis or gonorrhea in the past year
Meth use in the past month
Bathhouse or sex club in the past three months
Homeless and had any sex at all in the past three months
Many of these activities would seem to be 'public health emergencies' (or at least private emergencies) even without this latest Monkey-derived VD/Pox situation.

The formatting of the site might lead some LEOs or readers to think the assailant was a poster on the this board. Hopefully this is simply a formatting error and we are stabber-free. I wonder how quickly the DA will release the actual stabber guy back to the community as a part of general bail reform and concerns about racism and worries about cultural acceptance.  Hopefully he is being allowed halal meals and visits by some Imam during his likely brief detainment. :-X

Quote from: K_Dubb on Yesterday at 10:28:44 AMThe usual explanation offered as to why herding didn't develop in the Americas (aside from llamas in Peru, I suppose) is that there were no suitable animals.  Of course there were horses and camels which were actually native to North America when the first people came over from Asia but the general consensus is that they ate them all.  Dogs, though, were kept all over for food and for their fur which was woven and for dragging things on sledges which kind of meets those needs anyway though we balk at the suggestion for cultural reasons.

The Mayans actually qualify as one of the "cradles of civilization" having developed writing and cities, including one with a pyramid larger by volume than the Great Pyramid of Giza though it's mostly dirt, and I'd say given their late start versus the Indus Vally, Mesopotamia, Egypt and the Chinese they were doing pretty good.  Certainly their flint-knapping makes the Europeans look like Oog Ug the caveman by comparison.


I recently went to a lecture about the Sami. I tried to get into details about languages and "Bill from Wisconsin's" frequent claims about Finns. He was impressed by a bit taken aback by some theories I told. These so-called professors don't believe the runestones and tales of giants or white tribes in the Americas. Prester John and all the Vikings, Welsh, and even Egyptians. He did go into the phenomena of the Sami (and their importation of the phenomena of the modern American Christmas depictions. Apparently some were even bandied about to promote the sales of reindeer meat to US/Canadian markets. Still some left but disputes over natives, laws, disease, and American palates didn't lead to great success for the idea.

Quote from: albrecht on August 12, 2022, 12:31:20 PMWait for the knock on the door. These can be limited, if so desired, by mentioning ancient midwest mounds and Welsh discovers therein. I'm told the Viking stuff is a now no-go because Runes and 'giants' are now a part of modern television culture and the Missionaries are down with explanations. And too much focus on Indians brings in legal stuff and offends the racists who want whitey to be founders/builders of everything. But the Welsh will throws them off. If in strong distress cite some "Bill from Madison" Finnish-Urgic linguistic theories and pre-modern mining and cabin-building techniques, can even devolve to reindeer/caribou and why herding didn't occur in some cultures. That, usually, gets them. If not you got a solid Missionary and I want to subscribe to his newsletter and he hear frantically calling C2C. Invite to SardineFest.

That sweater looks both vaguely familiar and lovable.  Additionally, I wonder what handle this alleged BellGabber goes by hear?  I cannot imagine that they would be so foolish as to use their real name, Lee!

Commenting on the vidya itself:  Does that fake frozen alien body have prominent labia or is that just my wildly overactive imagination a 'twerk?
