I was reminded of the song by this post. The singer was dead two years after this was recorded.
Blackwater guy slammed for offering $6,500 flights out of Kabul. Sounds like a good price to me. Flights from some places to Australia these days are $10,000+. Let the free market do its thing.
This will not end well. In fact, people muttering this dark premonition over the last decade have already been proven correct because things are already not well.
Modern political debates and bouts of media hysteria are as real as pro-wrestling. Anyone else notice how quickly BLM disappeared? Someone somewhere turned a switch.
I once lived with a pro-wrestler, only for a week. I forgot about that. It was quite a story so I’ll write an article one day.
Woke is coming for the Unitarian Universalists. I’d have thought they would be the first to fall but there you go – they held out longer than the Vatican.
This looks like a new religion invading existing religions. I can’t think of a close parallel in history. The early church tolerated some pagan practices if they could be retro-engineered to seem Christian but mostly they tried to do away with the old. Interesting times.

A woman in Australia is busted trying to cross a state line in the boot (trunk) of a car. Seems it was an attempted relocation without necessary internal passport.

This thread gave me a needed chuckle:
I reckon this would pass muster:
Film recommendation: Vampire Hunter D: Bloodlust, 2000. This will not be everybody’s cup of tea but I think my readers can figure out who’s who. It’s a bit gothic, a bit western, a bit scifi and a little bit rock and roll.
Meanwhile in Japan, a man in Sapporo attempts to rob a convenience store with a lighter:
It’s said that usually around this time in Hokkaido, people out on the street will try to get prison sentences just to ride out the winter months . . .
It’s just as possible that he was a seasoned robber who got bored of the routine and decided to challenge himself.
Take care while overtaking:
