  1. This poor guy was left a sitting duck to this deranged psycho https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-11894437/Horrific-moment-deranged-Las-Vegas-bus-passenger-stabs-man-33-death-knifing-33-TIMES.html The bus driver needed some kind of weapon/the presence of mind in order to feel like opening the door was a valid option. Just let the guy get slaughtered? The headspace there seemed to be taking comfort from their fear that the guy was fixated on the victim alone. Also, I bet any altercation between the murderer and his victim was completely on the murderer. Murderer looks like the type to do what he did.
  2. That program in Canada started in 2016 and was expanded (for adults) last year to include securing assistance to die if you're living with a debilitating disability or pain; you no longer had to be terminally ill. With the way Western culture has been going, I think it's very reasonable to expect that the criteria for minors will eventually expand, too. There was an Iranian immigrant who'd been living in Canada for 12 years and applied for the program when he was facing eviction. He has really bad back pain from an accident and figured he would slowly die on the streets, so it was better to just say sayonara. He was on all government assistance he could be. The community raised money for him and he wants to keep living.

    Nikki Haley in 2024!

    She's a typical politician and we're in times where someone who has and wants to use courageous discernment would be helpful. There are certain things DeSantis does that I don't agree with, but gut wise, I read him as "self-possessed," and the overwhelming majority of politicians aren't. We can't afford more NPC presidents. Trump wasn't one, but he also had some glaring discernment blindspots.
  4. I'm curious why China is making it a point to say they "retain the right to respond further." Given the overall context, that response is what seems excessive. So were and are they intentionally being provocative? Or are they just saying that to sound tough and in control (but would anyone be questioning that internally?) If the latter, then would that mean they don't understand that they don't even need to look tough here, because we just let their craft fly thousands of miles through our airspace..
  5. China has to know calling the US response "excessive" is whack. So I wonder why they are. And then, "retains the right to respond further."
  6. If we imagine this had been happening in the UK instead of the US, we would absolutely understand them taking it down. And if they had done it much earlier on, that would have been respected, too. If it was ours over China, regardless of us saying "Oops! It's harmless though," Americans would respect that they treated it otherwise. It's their airspace. (Putting aside all the more covert stuff).
  7. China's response is nuts. https://nypost.com/2023/02/04/china-claims-right-to-respond-after-us-shoots-down-balloon/ "The Chinese government said Saturday that President Biden’s decision to shoot down the spy balloon that crossed America was an “excessive reaction” and that it “retains the right to respond further.”" If it was homegrown, one of us launched that, FAA rules concerning unregistered, unmanned craft capable of that altitude would require it gets neutralized immediately. Then you'd be fined, at the least. Probably billed for the mission and cleanup.

    Taylor Swift

    In terms of her showing genuine emotion, her live performances of All Too Well is where that seems to happen. It seems like her time with Jake Gyllenhaal left an actual scar. She was 20 and fully bought into the relationship. He was 29. Towards the last third of the song as she sings it, it's clear. She looks angry and hurt. You who charmed my dad with self-effacing jokes Sippin' coffee like you're on a late-night show But then he watched me watch the front door all night Willin' you to come And he said: It's supposed to be fun Turning 21 (*this part is from the 10 minute version) Time won't fly, it's like I'm paralyzed by it I'd like to be my old self again But I'm still tryin' to find it After plaid shirt days and nights when you made me your own Now you mail back my things and I walk home alone
  9. There's a big pocket of no fly sky around the Myrtle Beach region at the moment.
  10. If it is in fact a Chinese project.. Right now, BRICS leaders are poised to launch a shared gold-backed currency. A stable currency with those nations joined together stands to end the reign of the dollar. As odd as this might sound, without taking the time to explain how and providing the historic precedent, such a development is actually war-fanning. Most likely, covert state actors are working to disincentivize it. Because of the legitimate "EMP delivery system" concerns with balloons, I'm thinking maybe they're (BRICS) asserting themselves with this. They want to move forward without being handicapped by the weight of however the U.S. would work to prevent the currency. Here's a piece on the balloon/EMP (seriously) deal. https://www.washingtonexaminer.com/news/washington-secrets/balloons-called-top-delivery-platform-for-nuclear-emp-attack I could be absurdly wrong, but this is how the dots seem to connect.
  11. This reported aspect of the balloon isn't getting enough attention... https://www.kansascity.com/news/local/article272092112.html "The balloon, however, may have made a sudden descent “That object that we’re talking about that was at our 3 o’clock, about a minute and a half ago, I saw, the captain saw it dive about 20,000 feet in seconds and then it was below us. That’s what it appears now and to our 4 o’clock position.""

    Shape/form wise, I like it. Not crazy about that particular print.
