Some gems from tonight:
Little old lady was so proud of her son in law apparently being someone famous from DC: “If you lived in the beltway, you’d recognize him”
Same little old lady on whether to remove extra chairs from the table: “well, I’ll need a chair for my purse, but I don’t want anyone to have to sit on the seam of the table…”
Apparently famous guy: “is your pork dish dried out? My grandma used to cook me pork and it was always dried out”
Woman who ordered seafood portofino and french onion soup upon receiving orzo mac and cheese appetizer, which has bacon bits mixed in: “Can I get this without the bacon? I’m vegetarian.”
Same woman upon receiving a bacon - less mac and cheese: “There’s still meat in this, or maybe it was cooked in bacon fat or something. I can’t eat this.”
Same woman upon being informed that the French onion soup is made with beef broth and demi glace and the seafood portofino contains shellfish: “oh that’s okay.”
Sometimes I start saying something and then I think to myself “should I just shut the fuck up?” And usually the answer is yes so I do.
I’m not gonna tell anybody how to live their life but just know that shutting the fuck up is always an option.
On the right is the image right-wing pundit Jim Hoft used to prove that Darren Wilson had an orbital blowout fracture. On the left is a CT scan of a blowout fracture, taken at the University of Iowa in 2008 and used on a website explaining what orbital blowout fractures are. If you look carefully or casually or at all in any way using eyeballs of any kind, you’ll notice that they’re the same image, except that the one on the right has been edited so that it no longer includes the date or location. That’s because the story was made up.
In video taken after the shooting, you can see Wilson walking around uninjured. His eye socket is not busted, nor is his jaw (an addition to the story I’ve seen since it’s been on its telephone game journey across the internet). In addition, Michael Brown’s autopsy showed no sign of struggle. And the claim that over a dozen witnesses agreed with the cop’s story were fabricated, made up by either police or a local journalist who has been on leave since March and is not reporting officially or unofficially on the situation in Ferguson. None of the actual witnesses (the ones who exist and are not made up) agree with the cop’s story.
Given that everything so far in defense of Wilson has been made up, police have been intentionally spreading lies to make Wilson look better and Brown look worse, and they deleted Wilson’s social media presence and helped him flee town before revealing his identity (making it impossible to know what he may have said about the case or comments he may have made about other subjects that could paint a picture of who he is as a person), it’s pretty hard to presume they’re not hiding something.
Wilson’s story was not even from Wilson himself. It was told 3rd hand by this “Josie”, which makes it hearsay. But hearsay out of a white woman’s mouth is the only thing more credible than actual witnesses I guess…
It’s almost like racist assholes will latch on to any fake story they can find and repeat it as fact long after it’s been debunked. And they say psychological warfare doesn’t work…
A while back I stopped wearing my slip-on kitchen shoes at work because they were giving me terrible foot/leg pain so I just wore my everyday shoes in the kitchen for the last couple months and they have now all but disintegrated. Now I’m back to the slip-ons and they are killing my feet again.
Anyway the point of the story is that shoes are terrible and I hate everything foot-related.
