How many Somali Sommelier are there in Minneapolis?

I was watching this really cool show called Inside the Food Factory. I was surprised to learn that the Brit’s still call a particular emulsifier Rapeseed oil.

Shouldn’t it be called Southasianseed oil?

Why Is the World Still Accepting China’s Dishonest COVID-19 Numbers?

"The Economist recently efforted to ascertain the pandemic’s true death toll.

They estimated that China has experienced close to 2 million excess deaths compared to the “normal” trend. This figure is 17,000% more than the official Chinese death figure of about 4,600."

It does seem unusual that every outbreak in China that causes the lockdown of a city of 10-15 million people starts with exposure to imported frozen food or some guy, who was quarantined for 14-21 days after returning from overseas was let out too early.

Funny how it never starts with a bat or a pangolin exposure.

Listened to Tim Pool last night. Guest was Amanda Milius, who worked in the Trump Administration and produced that movie about the Russian hoax .

This is interesting and a good 2 hours spent listening while you do chores or wait for a football game.

She is on the “everything is corrupt” wing and thinks Mike Pompeo is pretty useless.

Melinda,

Elon Musk is a strange duck, and somehow I feel like he is a nerdy carnival barker. He was on JoeRogan talking about implanting chips in peoples’ brains which either is nuts or pretty creepy.

His only real accomplishment, as far as I am concerned, was squashing Elizabeth Warren on Twitter.

Rick Ballard

Narciso,

Easy. It's a newspeak piece eliminating an unperson. It's much easier to interpret than the newspeak garble used to "disprove" the Bell Curve which all come to the conclusion that we should never, ever trust our lying eyes.

CDC is polishing the newspeak definition of "vaccinated" to include only those dumb enough to use "boosters" as another single ply defense against the dreaded Wuflu.

Old Lurker

Rick, did you ever consider posting on JOM2?

anonamom

elevendayempire.com/JOM2

Rick Ballard

OL,

I certainly will at some point. I'm still unsure of the thread/comment structure.

Ignatz Ratzkiwatzki

--For example, the associations of Black people with poor health outcomes, economic disadvantage and reduced life expectancy can be explained by structural racism, yet Blackness or Black culture is frequently cited as the driver of those health disparities.--

Follow the rigorous, resilient science. "Can" and "is" are very often completely unrelated but what difference does that make to this genius?
It 'can' also be explained by the most brutal KKK theories of race as well.
And it can be, and is, explained by reality which lies equally distant from both retarded ideologically based explanations.

Old Lurker

Rick, for us regular folks, the structure is dead simple: Every day is a new thread started by whomever is first after midnight. Then each 20 comments bring up a new page. So today, eg, homepage > December General Discussions > top Thread then either read the post pages from 1...n or better, click on the highest # for the most current.

Personally I never look at any of the other categories of threads myself.

So it is 100 times easier to get to the current discussion.

There are other handy features like being able to edit your own posts after the fact, and also Killfile is built in so you can simply list the time wasters.

Come in, the water's fine.

Those are good tips for buying on line or if you need something new.

In addition, my sister and I shop Goodwill and other vintage stores as well as garage sales if we are looking for items for ourselves. Even if an item is from China, the money has already been spent by the former owner.

"Desperate residents have taken to social media to complain about online food orders - a last resort for many - that have gone undelivered. Local authorities since Tuesday night started mobilizing districts to deliver free food to residents in sealed areas, but a large number of people still face difficulties in procuring daily necessities."

Hilarious. China wants America to protect their space station from... Elon Musk?

It's a little odd to think that the Chinese have come to realize that Elon Musk is now a world power.

Somebody in China must have read "Ghost Fleet." War breaks out between China and the US. China cripples the US satellite system with anti-satellite weapons. A beleaguered US military turns to Elon and asks, "Hey, don't all of your Starlink satellites have thrusters?" "Yes, so we can de-orbit them if the need arises." "Well, can you turn them around and aim them at the Chinese satellites instead?"
