Millennial Couple Bikes Near ISIS Territory to Prove ‘Humans Are Kind’ and Gets Killed

At least they proved some humans are really stupid.

David

Morning, all. Here’s a thing.

Via Holborn.

David

And this:

The face lies on a surgical tray, eyes empty and unseeing, mouth agape, as if exclaiming, “Oh!” Sixteen hours ago, surgeons in Operating Room 19 at the Cleveland Clinic began the delicate work of removing the face from a 31-year-old woman who was declared legally and medically dead three days earlier. Soon they will take it to a 21-year-old woman who has waited more than three years for a new face.

For a moment, the face rests in its astonished solitude. Surgeons, residents, and nurses, suddenly silent, gaze at it in awe as clinic staff, like unusually polite paparazzi, move in with cameras to document it. The face, deprived of blood, grows pale. With each second of detachment, it looks more like a 19th-century death mask. Frank Papay, a veteran plastic surgeon, picks up the tray, carrying it carefully in his gloved hands, and walks to Operating Room 20, where Katie Stubblefield waits.

Needless to say, the article features some quite graphic photographs.

David

Heh.

"In a lab at the University of Florida, researchers are giving male jumping spiders a makeover. After knocking them unconscious for a few minutes with carbon dioxide, the scientists paint the bright-red faces of Habronattus pyrrithrix black with liquid eyeliner, or stick false eyelashes to the heads of Maevia inclemens with Elmer’s glue. "

It would have to be Florida, wouldn't it?

Evil is a make-believe concept we've invented to deal with the complexities of fellow humans

The cyclists not only didn't believe in evil, they didn't believe in complexities, didn't take them seriously. They didn't believe in intractable complexities that could get you killed.

[T]he notion that a penis is exclusively a male body part and a vulva is exclusively a female body part is inaccurate. By using the word “parts” to talk about genitals and using medical terms for anatomy without attaching a gender to it, we become much more able to effectively discuss safe sex in a way that’s clear and inclusive.

For the purposes of this guide, we’ll refer to the vagina as the “front hole” instead of solely using the medical term “vagina.” This is gender-inclusive language that’s considerate of the fact that some trans people don’t identify with the labels the medical community attaches to their genitals.

David

Meanwhile, the senator from The People's Republic of Massachusetts sends up some smoke signals...

Under Senator Warren’s proposal, no business with more than $1 billion in revenue would be permitted to legally operate without permission from the federal government. The federal government would then dictate to these businesses the composition of their boards, the details of internal corporate governance, compensation practices, personnel policies, and much more. Naturally, their political activities would be restricted, too.

I may be wrong, but I think there was an Italian chap last seen hanging around who came up with a name for that scheme about a century ago.

Years ago I did a fair bit of reading of the accounts of apostates from Islam. Of those who who had been converts, most were women. And most were warned, again and again.

One that always sticks out in memory was a German girl, who as usual met a wonderful, amazingly charming Muslim male; she was smitten, believed all he told her concerning his faith, converted, married, and, eventually, was convinced to follow him back to his home country.

Along the way this created a schism with her own family, and along the way there were plenty of moments when she could have given pause, and listened to her gut, instead of her heart.

In her husband’s home country, the mask began slipping off.

She escaped, eventually, and secreted her way to the German embassy. There she told the older woman working the desk her plight. The older woman’s response was telling, in what it implied. What she said, was: “Why don’t you girls ever listen?

David

What she said, was: “Why don’t you girls ever listen?”

It’s also worth noting that the various monsters in children’s stories – whether wicked queens, big bad wolves, or sorcerers with names that must not be mentioned – aren’t generally amenable to negotiation or high-minded hand-wringing. And their desire to do harm to unsuspecting children is typically thwarted, if it is thwarted, by their meeting a sticky fate.

Under Senator Warren’s proposal, no business with more than $1 billion in revenue would be permitted to legally operate without permission from the federal government.

I would anticipate the dissolution of many $1+ billion companies, and the incorporation of many more $0.9 billion companies.

At which point Sen. Geritolimo would lower the bar to a half-billion, and then a quarter-billion. One struggles to predict the end result of this cat-and-mouse game. Federal oversight of all commercial activity, or a re-enactment of the Sack of Washington?

Well, exactly. This is precisely what scares me most about these things. I find it hard to believe these people are actually this stupid. Yet lacking anything close to an even remotely honest and questioning media, even in much of the "conservative" media, when crap like this comes up no one asks the blatantly obvious questions. I'm constantly torn between two dark and helpless fears, #TheyCannotPossiblyBeThisStupidTheyAreHidingSomethingEvenMoreEvil and #OMGItsTrueTheyAreThisIncreadibyStupidAndTheyHavePower. Yes, hash tags. Because these things need to be categorized and monitored until I figure out WTH is going on.

Damn right. Go Gators! There was a guy in my dorm my freshman year who was quick of hand such that he could snatch a fly out of the air. He would then super glue a strand of dental floss to its abdomen, then turn it loose to fly around the room. Nice to see after all these years that he managed to find work.

“Fairy tales do not tell children the dragons exist. Children already know that dragons exist. Fairy tales tell children the dragons can be killed.” ~ G.K. Chesterton

I might replace the "can be" with "should be". The bowdlerization and feminization of children's entertainment is pretty much complete, although interestingly as mass media entertainment shifts increasingly to online streaming services there's a bit of retrenchment. Guillermo del Toro's Trollhunters features a male protagonist who remains un-upstaged by his female co-stars and kills bad guys to death rather a lot.

Re dorm room flycatcher: I knew a guy in HS who would catch flies by snatching them out of the air. Then, he'd pull their legs and wings off and watch them twitch on his desk.

He went to MIT and in 4 years earned a BS and two Master's in math and engineering. He also co-owned a restaurant.

The best thing that could happen to the country and Florida is for everything west of the Chattahoochee be given to Alabama, to the east to Georgia, and everything south of Crystal River to either New York or Cuba (seeing as how they have already colonized it) after a 20 mile wide canal has been cut across the state.

...our compulsions to bring our alligators with us...

Your alligators indeed, like Two Toe Tom

As attacks spread to other areas and became more frequent, rumors began to spread that the alligator was not an ordinary animal at all, but rather a malevolent demon from Hell, and his allegedly sinister exploits grew from attacking livestock and humans to hunting down and raping women it found out in the swamp by themselves.

Of course if they were out in the swamps alone they were asking for it, #metwotoe. According to the legend Two Toe was originally an Alabama gator but was driven from the state because it couldn't play football.

Right. So the longsuffering (German) spouse of yours truly and I were watching a French/German drama, Frantz (spoilers)*, which takes place between the wars. Don't ask me why, because I was bored to tears, but I perked up when the above Verlaine poem came up. I noted the line's WWII significance to my beloved, who'd never heard that before. Her words:

"We never learned about the battlefield stuff in school. We just knew when the war started, when we declared war on the U.S., when it ended . . . and when our Italian allies surrendered."

The article is over-wrought Damian, but anyone claiming the Alhambra is the work of European genius, while simultaneously defining any Muslims as non-European, is deranged. Its very name gives it away.

I'm happy that people might only be interested in European architecture, and they shouldn't be forced to add Islamic architecture because some SJW likes it. But they should at least get their boundaries right.

I like Islamic architecture a lot. But I mentally separate it because it largely comes from other traditions.

I wonder how the Atlantic would react if they could read Arabic accounts of Muslim architecture? Because I doubt such would willingly accept that they should be talking about Chartres or Big Ben.

Star Trek really wasted the Ferengi. They were always preaching about diversity—well, here’s some real diversity, a society with totally different mores than American liberals—oops, sorry, I meant the Federation. Remember when Nog joined Starfleet? Why not have a story line about what happens when he has to take orders from one of those skinny ladies in jumpsuits who abounded on the Enterprise? Who gets the benefit of the Prime Directive, Nog or the skinny lady? Why?

Nog should have learned the Worf Scam. Worf had it made. When Starfleet told him to do something he didn’t want to do, he’d say “I can’t do that, I’m a Klingon!” and they’d back off because of the Prime Directive. When the Klingons told him to do something he didn’t want to do, he’d say “I can’t do that, I’m a Starfleet officer!” and the Klingons would back off—well, I never did quite figure out why the Klingons would have reason to back off, but they would. That whole series was a fantasy about having it both ways.

Now, the “real” Klingons, the ones who wore the striped shirts (and fishing waders, on the Klingonettes) would most likely have told Worf, “This ain’t Starfleet, this is the planet Kling, and you can do it our way or have your visa permanently revoked,” and the Klingons, Starfleet, and arguably even Worf would all have been better off.

The one about the pale moonlight—I’m in the minority on that, Sisko getting sucked in deeper and deeper always reminded me of one of those Mash episodes where they start out with one simple trade and by the end they have to get an elephant from Korea to Poughkeepsie or something like that. Thus, I never could quite take it seriously. Also he owed Mr. Garak, who was absolutely right, a big, big apology, and never made it.

And wasn’t Garak kind to just stand there and let Sisko hit him? Why would he do that? Why not just duck?

Star Trek really wasted the Ferengi. They were always preaching about diversity—well, here’s some real diversity, a society with totally different mores than American liberals—oops, sorry, I meant the Federation.

Star Trek, like liberals, is incredibly racist, or at least "culturally imperialist". Every major alien race is a roman a clef of a specific country or ethnic group, and they are always depicted as backward, primitive, naive, and in dire need of correction by the enlightened Federation. Which they always are, by the end of the episode. It's the Englishman's burden IN SPAAAAACE.

I'm not a big fan of hunting for things to be offended by, but the Ferengi as portrayed in DS9 are every vile anti-Semitic stereotype about Jews rolled into one. It's not subtle. It's been pointed out numerous times and Paramount has gotten away with it for decades.

Remember when Nog joined Starfleet?

Yup. I quite liked that subplot; for once they showed a member of one of their alien monocultures displaying some individuality and choosing his values instead of being a stereotype.

And wasn’t Garak kind to just stand there and let Sisko hit him? Why would he do that? Why not just duck

Because that episode is as much about the war between Garak and Sisko's values as it is the Federation and the Dominion, and because Garak is a former high-up in a black ops intelligence service who specializes in psy ops[1]. Goading Sisko into striking him and taking the hit proves Garak's point, that Sisko ultimately is - or could be - just like Garak.

It's a mistake to evaluate any Star Trek episode on the basis of the character's personalities and motivations. They don't have any. Every Star Trek episode is a Shakespearean tragedy or Greek morality play, by design. The characters behave in whatever way is necessary to drive the moral lesson intended by the writers.

School district caves

Now hold on. The district was accused of sexism for encouraging, per Muldoon's link, "girls to act ladylike" - but the supposedly offensive quote said nothing of the kind. The quote said the more you act like a lady, the more he'll act like a gentleman, and while all the best people agree that's not a message anyone should direct towards a young person who was born with or otherwise acquired a vagina, I should think there would be at least equally enthusiastic agreement that any adolescent with a penis (factory installed or aftermarket) ought to be prodded if not required to behave as a proper young lady at all times, because all the best people today are insane.

That makes sense. In fact their aliens weren't alien at all. They'd just have a normal human body and then have some stupid make up to make them look different in some non-offensive way. Understandable dramatic problem: how do you signify alienhood while having the aliens have a normal and relatable character? You basically don't bother signifying the alienhood. But you *do* drag out the crudest cultural stereotypes, because audiences can relate to that.
