“I’m going to be turning toilet paper into drinkable alcohol.”

At last! :-)

David

If you’re interested in chemistry, the chap’s videos are fairly entertaining. Though I can’t help wondering if he’s one lab mishap away from becoming a super-villain.

I don't have anything terribly good, so you get kinky stone age sex.

I think we have found the source of many of the alcoholic and spirituous liquors served in David's rather outre establishment. Pork rectums and toilet paper hooch - what more could anyone ask for? I am sure the Michelin people will come knocking any day soon

Now there was a regrettable experience. Even the title is needlessly clunky. Too many words.

“I’m going to be turning toilet paper into drinkable alcohol.”

[ Peers at contents in glass in entirely new way. Shrugs. ]

Speaking of liquor, you may need a stiff drink or three to fortify yourself when reading the replies to this here, such as this one and this one, also that one, from a therapist no less*, and this other one here.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg - they're having themselves quite the party over there.

*Not entirely clear what kind of therapist, leaving open the possibility that this is some kind of homeopathic healer.

David

They’re having themselves quite the party over there.

Ms Occasional Cortex is a revolting human being. Manipulative and habitually dishonest. She is therefore, inevitably, a leftist hero.

[ Added: ]

She’s a dogmatic, self-flattering pinhead who’s impervious to factual correction and whose grasp of world events and basic economics, even simple numeracy, is so inadequate as to be comical. Shortcomings that have neither inhibited her career nor her eagerness to pronounce on said subjects with the expectation that others should defer or simply remain silent. Because magic brown woman.

As with Laurie Penny, she is in many respects a distillation of leftist vanity.

Not entirely clear what kind of therapist, leaving open the possibility that this is some kind of homeopathic healer.

Not saying one way or the other but if you seriously doubt that she's a psychological councilor of some sort, you haven't been paying attention the last 30-40 years.

David

Not just magic brown woman but magic brown Congresswoman

And one apparently impervious to repeated self-humiliation. No learning or course correction ever seems to occur. Instead, almost any public embarrassment, however self-inflicted, tends to result in insinuations of racism, or sexism, or claims that the mockery is only to hide fear of her enormous throbbing radicalism.

Again, much like Ms Penny.

Nikw211

... if you seriously doubt ...

Not quite sure how you managed to arrive at serious doubt from "Not entirely clear" and "leaving open the possibility".

But in any event, no, what you refer to has not escaped my notice.

pst314

Not saying one way or the other but if you seriously doubt that she's a psychological councilor of some sort, you haven't been paying attention the last 30-40 years.

Indeed. There are lots of "therapists" who are into horoscopes, healing crystals, aura reading, aromatherapy, and so on.

pst314

Also "past lives" and spirit channeling.

Well I did say "if". Just saying the vast majority of shrinkology is quite cool with such hysterical BS. A big reason why we are where we are today. Yes, we let the enemy take over our schools but I would argue it was a comparable mistake to give them our institutions of sanity as well.

Daniel Ream

from a therapist no less

In what I am sure will come as a shocking and ironic revelation, the therapist is herself a survivor or sexual assault trauma.

It always, always, always comes down to Complex PTSD. As a society, we have deliberately pursued social policies that increase the likelihood of our daughters being raped as children by orders of magnitude, and then we allow those broken children to be used as props and levers to push even more destructive social agendas.

If AOC is lying, I hope she's exposed, humiliated and hounded out of public life forever for trivializing this issue for her own fleeting advantage.

Didn't happen to Christine Blatant-Fraud, so I'm not optimistic.

Daniel Ream

What could go wrong?

So the figures are meaningless, and the supposed increase very likely hasn't happened.

Well. That doesn't explain the explosion in cases of female teachers having sex with their minor students. How much of that is an increase in cases or merely an increase in detection is an open question.

WTP

What could go wrong?

Perhaps something similar happened at the Tower of Babel? Could Elon Musk be our Nimrod?

Today I learned that shovelling snow, chiefly for the benefit of my neighbours, is not my first, best destiny.

Oog.

Oog.

It turns out, shockingly, that I’m not so much manual labourer as glamorous assistant. On the upside, however, I’m now less likely to get my new boots wet. So there’s that.

What? I’m just sharing my day.

WTP

Shoveling snow, you say?

ComputerLabRat

What? I’m just sharing my day.

I'm still trying to process the fact that there was snow to shovel. Wasn't it some East Anglia climate scientist prophesying a few years back that snowfalls were a thing of the past for your side of the pond? Forgotten, the Great Climate Predictions have been.

Is it weird that I'm deliberately careless with my boots because I enjoy cleaning them? I think I may have a budding addiction to Saphir Renovateur...

David

The words moral deviant spring immediately to mind.

Governor Squid

Plains Township Police Department Chief confirms a double murder suicide on Bergh Street. Chief tells us this all started as a neighbor dispute over shoveling snow.

The Chief obviously hasn't spent a lot of time as a detective, or he'd know that a double-murder/suicide never starts with a dispute over snow.

Darleen

AOC's tears about an alleged sexual assault are so so so authentic, don't you think?

"I’m going to be turning toilet paper into drinkable alcohol."

So no pipe bomb from playing cards? Ah well.

More importantly, how do you turn moonshine into toilet paper?
Last May, here in the US, we really needed to know that!

Dear oh dear, could reality be catching up to academia ?

One of our {third} second tier public universities in Canada has gone bankrupt
after years of financial mismanagement and administrative bloat.

Let's hope it is a phenomenon as catching as WhoFlu.

David - though I share your disdain for everything above AOC's neck we should more fairly and accurately judge her as an actress, considering she "won" that representative seat via a casting call from the Justice Democrats. Compared to your average hollywood bimbo she's a downright genius.

Not so much forgotten as memory holed. Although that link contains a link to a page with a pdf from the original Indy article from 2000 wherein a bod from the CRU is reported as claiming

...within a few years winter snowfall will become “a very rare and exciting event”. “Children just aren’t going to know what snow is,” he said.

Never let it be said that the Indy doesn't learn its lessons though; the 2020 article doesn't make the error of saying within a few years, rather suggests snow on the ground may be a thing of the past by the end of the century.

David

Yes, her only discernible skills seem to involve playing the role, which is to say, pretending.

Or lying.

Steve E

Today I learned that shovelling snow, chiefly for the benefit of my neighbours, is not my first, best destiny.

Please be careful David, according to the Daily Express:

"A yellow snow and ice warning covers much of Scotland, northern England and some parts of the Midlands until 11.59pm tonight."

Keep the words of Nanook's mama close to your heart: "Watch out where those huskies go and don't you eat that yellow snow."

David

yellow snow

If I see my elderly neighbour crouching suspiciously in the snow, drawers half-mast, I shoo her away with a broom.

“Only trying to melt it,” indeed.

David

[ Bangs on window. ]

"Shoo! Shoo!"

Yes, we let the enemy take over our schools but I would argue it was a comparable mistake to give them our institutions of sanity as well.

From a conversation with a close friend not so long ago:

“I have not met a leftist of late that was not on psychiatric medication. Not one. Their style, tastes, and general interests are all exactly the same as well.

[...] I talked to a girl who said her therapist was amazing because she had the same mental problems and cuts her crazy prescriptions for Adderall.”

Fred the Fourth

Squires,
Yup.
A troll through the AmITheAsshole subreddit is very informative in that regard.

Two unusually metrical graffiti messages (here and here) on a dreary wall in Belfast amplified by the media into international hate crime incidents because they "target" Irish deputy PM Leo Varadkar who's both gay and half-Indian - racist undertones and shades of the Ku Klux Klan.

To the scholars and humanitarians in the media there are only two possible historical parallels into which everything has to be shoehorned. Everything is either like a reenactment of Nuremburg in 1933 or a reenactment of Selma Alabama in 1965. Varadkar's being half-brown gives them an excuse to pretend it's Selma Alabama. But it's not, it's the dreary steeples of Fermanagh and Tyrone. The graffiti is part of the long Norn Iron tradition of sectarian provocations and threats and attacks.

If there's any really interesting historical parallel to be drawn about the place, it's that demographic interventions to stick it to the backward natives can cause centuries of suffering. But that historical parallel isn't going to get in the way of the infusions of diversity.

Implied tumescence or turgidity? These radicals today are rather stiff.

Who these days would bet against it changing?

Thank heavens she’s not a biological male...

The phallic connotations do sound apt, though. These clowns are forever bragging about their own imagined radicalism. Their radical prowess, as it were. All while mouthing the same idiocies, studiously regurgitated, and while pretending the same things.

David

Damn those white people and their ... [flips through index cards] ... acronyms.

I think we’ll give that one a post of its own.

Bless you, madam.

What is about wokeish WOCs that they all seem to have double-barreled family names? In England a doubled-barreled name is generally a sign of, or pretence to, class superiority.

However, what puzzled me (amongst many oddities) in Ms Seyer-Ochi's diatribe was " the colors of their educational degrees". Were they all wearing academic dress or is this some new wokeish classification?

“I’m going to be turning toilet paper into drinkable alcohol.”

So that's how they brew Bud Light. Mystery solved!

So no pipe bomb from playing cards? Ah well.

Can't be done anymore. The nitrocellulose based inks have pretty much disappeared. Just an FYI for the curious.

Pooklord

There's plenty of other ways to get nitrocellulose.
The cellulose is pretty easy, but ask for some fuming nitric acid and everyone gives you the stinkeye, like you're up to something.

pst314

and everyone gives you the stinkeye

Speaking of which...
