Out of the Blue

Happy belated birthday to Ant! I forgot this yesterday, so my apologies. There are a lot of folks who have taken the trouble to send in a lot of links to include here over the years, but Ant is arguably the single biggest contributor. He's been sending in items of possible interest for more than 20 years now (a quick sloppy search his first contribution goes back to June 1999 at the very latest). Thanks for all the help over all these years, Ant, and apologies for forgetting your birthday!

But sending bees to pollinate 160x that amount of crops to make dairy is totally fine right? Journalist love to forget that cows need to eat a shit ton of food.

Fuck are you talking about? You know cows, sheep, and goats eat grass, right?

Maybe in the wild, but dairy is from farms 98% of which are intensive farms. We're growing soy, grains etc to feed them. In fact something like 75% of all crops grown are fed to farm animals.

No grass here https://youtu.be/W7NEqjJZzwY?t=38

Incels get the same pass politicians, and corporate media give any hate group that targets minorities and divides the union. They get glossed over or not even mentioned when the crimes are reported.

Woo! Packers and Chiefs pull it out! Packers just squeaked by there but the Chiefs did it with authority. Much as I want my Pack to win I honestly can't see them beating the 49ers. Even if Seattle won I couldn't see them doing it either. It'll be a tough call for the Titans v. Chiefs but I'd have to say the edge definitely goes to the Chiefs. Still, any given Sunday and all that. Here's hoping the Pack takes it all. I take comfort in knowing that all your thoughts and prayers are with them.

Happy Ant day, Ant!

Yeah and almond farming isn't just a problem for bees but everything else. Plus the sheer volume of water required for it is insane.

Here’s the Real Problem With Almonds

"The European Union always made me feel, well, we are heading towards our own Federation of Planets somewhere down the line that will come about. And I am angry, disappointed and embarrassed by our decision to leave the Union," the English-born actor said in an interview with Weekend Edition Sunday.

Easy to say when you're a multi-millionaire. It's a whole lot different for Joe Average who can't get a job (or a decent one at any rate) because of cheap imported labor and "free" trade. Clearly he doesn't give a shit about the poor and working class people. Typical elite hypocrite.

Go Packers!
Go Chiefs!
