I have been sexually harassed - at least according to the Brits I have...

 What is it they say about us and the British...
Something about 'Two greats societies seperated 
by the same languge" or some shit like that.

Calling a man "bald" in the workplace constitutes sexual harassment, a UK employment tribunal said in a ruling published Wednesday.
The tribunal said that referring to a man's hair loss is a form of sexual harassment as it is an issue that is more prevalent among men and therefore "inherently related to sex." The group cited a case from 1995 where a tribunal determined a woman had been sexually discriminated against based on comments from her manager on the size of her breasts.
The decision, a rare example of a complaint in which comments on a worker's hair loss was directly tied to sexual harassment, is the result of an employment tribunal. Tribunals, a system that the UK uses to resolve issues between employees and employers, are typically made up of a panel of independent judicial bodies that are led by a single judge.
It's unclear whether the case could set a precedent for future sexual harassment cases in the UK - or here in the United States, though the verdict could be referenced in future suits.
That's pretty fuckin' pathetic, isn't it?

I know exactly where that beach is. Do you?

The housing market's a mess, and it's not 
going to get better anytime soon.

Foreclosures (in New Jersey) spiked 69% from the fourth quarter of 2021, and compared to one year ago, the increase stood at a staggering 312%. New Jersey edged out Nevada and trailed only Illinois.
“Nationwide one in every 5,922 housing units had a foreclosure filing in January 2022. States with the highest foreclosure rates were New Jersey (one in every 2,336 housing units with a foreclosure filing); Illinois (one in every 2,740 housing units); Nevada (one in every 3,119 housing units); Michigan (one in every 3,127 housing units); and Ohio (one in every 3,251 housing units).
Among the 220 metropolitan statistical areas with a population of at least 200,000, those with the highest foreclosure rates in January 2022 were Detroit, MI (one in every 1,547 housing units with a foreclosure filing); Atlantic City, NJ (one in every 1,564 housing units); Cleveland, OH (one in every 1,659 housing units); Columbia, SC (one in every 1,921 housing units); and Trenton, NJ (one in every 2,299 housing units).
Other than Detroit and Cleveland, among the metropolitan areas with a population greater than 1 million, those with the worst foreclosure rates in January 2022 included: Chicago, IL (one in every 2,514 housing units); Las Vegas, NV (one in every 2,654 housing units); Miami, FL (one in every 2,731 housing).”

Oh, I'm terribly sorry. You didn't come here 
to find real news, did you? My bad...

"I was very nervous when I went to see them in Delaware. And really what we talked about for the majority of our conversation was the importance of returning integrity, respect and civility to the White House," she said.

Murray Kessler, the CEO of baby formula producer Perrigo, said that he expects the shortages to last the rest of this year, despite Biden saying he hopes it will be resolved within weeks. Nationwide, the shortages are now at 43 percent, with states like Tennessee, Delaware and Texas reporting shortages of over 50 percent. The crisis brewed during the pandemic, and by August shortages were at 10 percent nationwide. The Wall Street Journal warned of a looming problem in February, and the White House's own National Economic Council in February, and yet Joe Biden said that you would have had to have been a 'mind reader' to see it coming.

I saw this picture of the sign and it got me thinking about all these jackasses these days dying of Fentanyl OD's and how willing people are to ingest shit they have no idea who made it and where.
And then I thought about myself and my friends back in the day. Street-corner blow, Reds, black beauties, blotter acid, bootleg 'Ludes - all kinds shit we bought and ate and didn't have a friggin' clue where it came from or even who the guys were selling them to us.
 
So I guess I need to just shut the fuck up about what they're doing to themselves and be a little grateful I didn't kill myself back in those wonderful, experimental days...
... 

I don't mean to purposefully rag on my home State, but 
there sure as fuck is a lot to laugh about up there.

Ya know, I think it was Sinatra who said of one lady songstress 
who said stupid shit all the time: "I think she needs to shut the fuck up and sing." That could certainly apply to this dizzy dipshit.
Bette Midler is getting heat for telling people to "try breastfeeding," a comment that many view as insensitive to parents struggling to feed their babies amid the nationwide formula shortage.
MSNBC host Stephanie Ruhle on Thursday tweeted about the shortage, calling the system an "amazing secret oligopoly." Three percent of American companies control over 90 percent of the market, she said, and restrictive regulations backed by lobbying prohibit the sale of foreign formulas.
"Name another industry/sector/product like this," Ruhle said. "TRY BREASTFEEEDING!" Midler responded. "It's free and available on demand."
By the time they were all done, there was no 
winner in that particular idiot contest...

  1. Hey Joe - I'm guessing the beach is on St Johns.

    Gotta be something magical about New Joysee. They let you in for free then charge you to get out.

  3. For the palm trees, in 1984? I put a 6 foot stepladder on top of a box van and used a 12 foot polesaw to trim my two trees.
