More like 2 seconds of hate but... goddamnit don’t call your recipe ‘meatless’ if it includes anchovies. As a part of sauce flavoring and not a meat filling I get calling it a cheese lasagna and not a fish lasanga but a ‘meatless’ cheese lasanga it is not.

(Dried mushroom and spinach powder with a bunch of msg worked well enough.)

Why have so many drivers not learned, if they're turning right, to pull closer to the curb, so that they're not blocking the effin' traffic lane?!

Greta Thunberg hits back at Andrew Bolt for 'deeply disturbing' column | Environment | The Guardian

Quote:
... Australian News Corp columnist Andrew Bolt for writing a deeply offensive column that mocked her autism diagnosis.
What a dick

Quote:
widely read Herald Sun columnist and Sky News commentator used his significant platform to take aim at the 16-year-old campaigner, dismissing her followers as members of a cult
Normal for denial dicks

Quote:
“I have never seen a girl so young and with so many mental disorders treated by so many adults as a guru,” Bolt wrote.

“Far more interesting is why so many adults – including elected politicians, top business leaders, the Pope and journalists – treat a young and strange girl with such awe and even rapture.

“Her intense fear of the climate is not surprising from someone with disorders which intensify fears.”
But this is multiple kinds of dickheadery.

That's very interesting. I would have thought one of our chemical moguls would be the highest salaried person. Barring that I would have thought for sure one of the Big University peoples would make more than a community college guy.

I just relooked. It's public employee salaries. I might've thought a UD guy or maybe a DSU guy would make more than a community college.

Special shout-out to Hawai’i, for the highest-paid state employee being… a staff surgeon at the University of Hawai’i. Y’know, I can almost understand that one if I squint right. Surgeons do valuable, specialised work that literally saves lives, and which most people couldn’t do. I don’t mind them making salaries in the mid-six figures so much.

Ours is, of course, a football coach (Dan Mullen). I wasn’t expecting anything less from Floriduh. He makes some $6M more than Ron DeSantis, but frankly, I can’t say having someone make $6M more than DeSantis bothers me as much as it would if DeSantis’ seat weren’t stolen to begin with. If it were Andrew Gillum in the governor’s mansion (as it would have been without Bat Boy Voldemort Skeletor Lex Luthor Rick Scott’s copious and probably illegal voter suppression during the last election), I’d be quite a bit more upset.

(The idea that anyone makes $6M per year is itself obscene, actually. But I really can’t stand DeSantis. Fuck that racist motherfucker.)

This is some high-quality hate porn right here. A black man hired a lawyer and sued a former employer in federal court for race discrimination. Dude got a measure of vindication when the case settled, only to have his bank call the cops on him when he tried to negotiate the settlement checks.

The legal field is doing its part to keep checks (cheques) alive in the US.*

Lawyers here appear to be the absolute latest adopters of any and all technological advancements, especially if they relate directly to getting paid. Sometimes an actual checkque/k (put that in ALL CAPS and it'd look like a Klingon word for vomit) is the only way to pay on a contract.

Then again, another heavy hitter in the war against paperless economy would be the predatory checque/k cashing industry. Basically, people on the fringes tend to have trouble getting bank accounts, so a paper cheque/k is the best they can get - and while in theory they could get all of the money the piece of paper says, the most convenient and viable option is your local check cashing office, where they're happy to give you your money right away, for a not-entirely-modest fee. A neighborhood's average income is in inverse proportion to the number of check cashing services.

Hey, a tangent that's still on topic. Nice. Sorta.



*Mr. Maturin, please correct me if I'm wrong.

And don't forget local governments. I decided to pay my tax bill and went online to see whether I could. Oh yeah: PayPal, MasterCard, Visa ... all were available. For a fucking FEE! And not a reasonable amount, neither. To a $909 tax bill, please add $24. The hell?!

So I'm going write a check--always assuming I can find my checkbook--and walk it down to the trustee on my lunch break. And maybe complain to no one who can do anything because decision makers don't work the clerk's office.

Harrumph.
