Out of the Blue

Happy Pokémon Day. I've done my share of poking over the year's but I've never actually Pokéd. But according to Newsweek, the Pokémon Company brands this a "holiday." Fair enough, guess I'll take the rest of the day off. Just remember if you are out driving to watch out for Pokémon GO players out on celebratory hunting sprees.

Oliver went on to show the now-famous video of a Ukrainian woman who greeted a heavily armed Russian soldier with sunflower seeds. The sunflower is the national flower of the country. As she explained to him, "Take these seeds and put them in your pockets so at least sunflowers will grow when you all lie down here."

"Good for her!" Oliver championed. "Good for her! Let's just recognize for a second how ice-cold that insult is. 'Take these seeds and put them in your pocket so sunflowers will grow when you die!' That is f*cking brutal. That woman brought seeds to a gun fight and she somehow still comfortably won."

Looks like Belarus is going to join Russia in the Ukraine invasion.
Also, it looks like Belarus has passed a bill to allow Russian nukes in their territory.

Eh, I'd rather bring my own gun. I'd much prefer my Ruger SR-762 than an AK-47, AK-74, or AK-103. I'd imagine what Ukraine is handing out is AK-47 pattern guns. So you'd be firing the 7.62x39mm round. Compared to a .308Win or NATO 7.62x51mm round, it's not great. It has far less kinetic energy and velocity than the .308Win and is less accurate to boot. On top of that, you have to deal with the AK's "windage" problem where as my SR-762 doesn't have that. Additionally, you have penetration to consider as well. Of all the pictures I have seen so far, none of the regular Russian troops seem to be wearing receivers with any kind of plate in them. However, that doesn't necessarily mean that some troops don't have receivers. I can't imagine, given their state of gear, that they are using ceramic plates so that leaves regular armor grade steel plate. The 7.62x39mm round is just going to ping off of it whereas the .308 is going to leave a fair dent and transfer a lot of its kinetic energy in to the target. It might not be a kill, but it will certainly pause them long enough for you to send off a second round to a non-armored part of the body.

If I didn't have my parents to look after, I would seriously consider it. Live today, die tomorrow, and remember your three TLAs: AAA, SMC, and AIO.

NATO has decided to seriously upgrade the arms they're sending to Ukraine. Instead of just small arms and man portable rockets, they'll be sending them fighter jets.

EU countries will send "fighter jets" to Ukraine at Kyiv's request to help it counter the Russian air and land assault, the bloc's foreign policy chief Josep Borrell said Sunday.

"We're going to provide even fighting jets. We're not talking about just ammunition. We are providing more important arms to go to a war," he told a press conference.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Dmytro Kuleba has told the EU "they need the kind of fighting jets that the Ukrainian army is able to operate... some member states have these kinds of planes," Borrell said.

These would likely be types that the Ukrainian AF already flies: MiG 29s and Su-25s which are still operated by Poland, Bulgaria, and Slovakia. I wonder if tanks will soon be on the table.

Weight-loss shot may safely treat obesity, overweight

Give it 12 months before they are sued for causing cancer and death and heart complications like every other weight loss drug.

Weight loss is insanely easy. Just eat tons of fiber and no saturated fat, and you'll never feel hungry. Probably helps not to look at fast food advertisements too

Soup is best. It's filling and hydrating. Pre-western fast food you rarely ever saw fat people in soup cultures like Hong Kong. You ever see fat old Jewish men in deli's having soup? Not on your life! Soup yes, fat no!

Need to be careful of the sodium levels in soup though... assuming you're mortal. We undead sorcerers love salty soups, and we never gain a single ounce! Cthulhu

But seriously, if you're buying canned soup look carefully at the sodium content. Homemade soup, on the other hand, is delicious and healthy (Hobbit chowder?)
