It's obvious what they're selling: Letterpress freegan twee quinoa. Pretty sure I can get that in health food shops in London.

Second Person Accuses Katy Perry of Sexual Harassment | Consequence of Sound

Quote:
According to Russian newspaper Rossiyskaya Gazeta, a female TV host in Georgia named Tina Kandelaki has accused Perry of harassing her at an industry party. Kandelaki claims Perry was heavily intoxicated when she inappropriately touched her and tried to kiss her. Kandelaki says she rejected Perry’s advances, but the pop singer continued to act inappropriately with other people attending the event.
"I kissed a girl and she didn't like it."

The sanctuary protected undocumented immigrant that accidentally killed a woman along SF pier just had his only conviction overturned and I bet racist xenophobic bigots are howling over such justice!

In 2015 we got a preview of the xenophobia to come as a white woman was shot and killed along SF pier seemingly by an undocumented immigrant that was out hunting white woman, or whatever bigots think immigrants do.

Not only was he an undocumented felon but was only here because of sanctuary laws. howler monkey racists went crazy, this was *the* case to prove how dangerous illegal immigrants were. All the same who say “let’s wait for the evidence” and “It hasn’t been proven in a court of law” found him guilty of salivating at the thought of murdering a good wholesome white woman.

What really happened was many weeks earlier a federal agent had his sidearm stolen from his vehicle. I’m unsure if it was visible, but instead of poop, car break ins and thefts are really what SF should be known for. Walking the streets you will occasionally see a “Nothing in car, please don’t break my windows! Thank you!” Sign with the glove compartment left open. Somehow that stolen gun ended up at the pier, loaded and wrapped in a tshirt. The tshirt package was picked up by our immigrant the gun accidentally fired with the bullet striking the ground ricocheting up and hitting a woman along the pier fatally. A sad real life ‘final destination’ event but not anyone’s fault. He freaked and tossed the gun, not realizing someone was struck.

The gun is immune of course, as enshrined in our constitution, no one even dared to ask why a gun suddenly went off, especially when there already exists double point trigger systems that require pressure on multiple spots as if aiming and firing before the trigger engages to help prevent exactly this, but frame autonomy rights prevent us from forcing guns to make any changes to their body or design.

After jumping to false conclusions all those shouting for blood needed something for him to be guilty of, so he was charged with being a felon in possession of a weapon. However his council has successfully argued that possession requires at least an understanding of whats in your hands and that he didn’t possess the weapon long enough to count. It’s not like some sort of hot potato where as soon as you’re touching it, it counts and since he immediately threw away the potato it was ruled that he wasn’t out.

No idea where to put this, it crosses so many streams.

From the class action email about the Yahoo data breaches some years ago:
Quote:
*Who’s Included?* If you received a Notice about the Data Breaches, or if you
had a Yahoo account at any time between January 1, 2012 and December 31, 2016,
and are a resident of the United States or Israel, you are a “Settlement Class
Member.”
United States or Israel? That's a strange combination, typically I'm used to seeing Canada in there.
