Someone on Nextdoor was asking about what turned out to contrails. Down in the replies someone gave a somewhat simplistic explanation of what contrails are then gets attacked for "mansplaining".  :facepalm:

Some in the thread talk like they've never seen them before. Seriously think some people never look up in their entire lives

I've seen that on reddit too. How the hell can someone over the age of 6 not know what a contrail is, or at least that they're related to aircraft? Idiocracy.

They got what they deserve for being on NextDoor.  That sight is a hive of AWFLs just looking for an excuse to swarm.

Meanwhile in Oakland, Benny Johnson got robbed at an In-N-Out:

Not a story in and of itself, but apparently this is the first In-N-Out location to close in the company's history ... all due to the rampant crime ...

I guarantee all the ninnies will run with "he did it himself for clicks".

Oakland was a scary shithole back when I used to have to go to Coast Guard Island 20 years ago. I can't imagine going through there now without power armor.

NARF (Naval Air Rework Facility) Alameda used to to be one of the places that did P3 rework and I dreaded having to take a plane there because invariably the guys that had never been to Alameda would want to go bar hopping. Usually we would stay in Alameda but every now and then someone would want to go to Oakland. I usually went back to the hotel at that point. I can't imagine how much crime there was when there were carriers homeported in Alameda because it is nothing to get to/from Oakland in Alameda.

I've done several exercises in and out of Mare Island, and Alameda (we berth over by USS Hornet). I went out on the town the first couple times, but now it's one of port where I just stay in the boat.  The Army has had to start locking our exercise participants down and not letting them off base because too many soldiers were getting mugged in Oakland.

We go explore the port towns in Djibouti, Santo Domingo, Puerto Cortes, and I've hit the markets in Baghdad.  I'll skip Oakland though.

Did someone slip Bill Maher a red pill?
Bill Maher attacking the sexualization of children even going after story book time and defending DeStanis in his fight with Disney. The laugh track makes it hard to take seriously unless you blot it out.

One thing I'll say about Bill Maher is that he's consistent in his beliefs. He's not really red-pilled, he's just been standing in the same place he always was and is looking around going "WTF?"

I still disagree with Maher on all kinds of things, but they're the same things I disagreed with him on 20 years ago. As to his current views, I agree with him on things like the above, which all sane people of all political persuasions agree on.

ELon says that's what happened with him and in many ways the same could be said about Trump and probably many of us here as well.

Right after the Biden admin goes after Sheetz for discrimination against blacks by weeding out criminals we have this

Quote
Circle K Inc., which operates more than 7,000 convenience stores discriminated against LGBT job seekers  - specifically gay men and trans-women - by automatically weeding out applicants who had been convicted of child sex crimes, according to U.S. officials.
Quote
The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission filed suit in Baltimore against Orland, Florida-based Circle K and two subsidiary companies, alleging the chain’s longstanding hiring practices have a disproportionate impact on LGBT applicants and thus run afoul of federal civil rights law.

Circle K said Thursday that it “did not realize that gay men and trans-woman were the primary perpetrators of sexual violence against children" and that "they would do better".

Do I need to say it?
