I'll take that ladder if no one claims it.

Hell, I'll move to Luxembourg if that's the worst thing you have going on.

Well, obviously. If you round the populations to the closest million, Iceland has no inhabitants and Luxembourg has 1 million.

What the hell, Luxembourg?

Man finds own amputated leg on cigarette packets without consent - BBC News

His son discovered the picture - which bore recognisable burns and scars - when he bought a packet of rolling tobacco last year in Luxembourg, French media report.

At least it wasn't amputated just so he could fit into Luxembourg. :shiftier:

Sounds like rural America needs fences to keep 30-50 feral hogs out. Build the wall!

This feral hog thing has swamped Twitter. :lolhog:










Turns out roaming packs of feral hogs are a legit problem in the US of A. To no one's surprise, shooting them is useless as a defence or a control method, unless you have 30-50 crack marksmen who can get them all at once. They scatter. And not necessarily away from you.

I am so glad I am on a social media break. Confused, but glad.

ETA: NM, Gorge Takei filled me in.
Slightly less confused, also less glad.

I don't have time to check all 39 pages, but is this the first actual dictionary-definition disaster striking Luxembourg that we've had in this thrad?

Yeah, that tornado was actually pretty bad. 160 houses damaged or destroyed and 19 people wounded.
