I can proclaim that I've never personally raped a cow, by hand or with a machine. :nope:

Didja see how that has-been Cain tried to steal Dear Leaders spotlight by dying this week? Un-be-lieve-able. I'm telling you, the president's enemies are circling the wagons.

Fascinating collection of dialects from the British Library. I was browsing and W2 kept asking what languages they were speaking.

The English/Dutch/Japanese half of the family is at Fingals in Devon this week, I’m so jealous! Such a beautiful place, you can walk the lanes around there for hours on end. We were all there for Christmas in 2017. Fingals is the bomb if you’re ever in that part of the world!

This only blew me away the first time I saw it. It makes complete sense that denser populated areas are going to lean blue. I was a Republican :cantlook: in my youth by default (parental influence) before I went to college in a big city... Eyes opened. (woke? :? )

Ok I’ve seen reports of at least 7 states getting seeds. Another pic shows black seeds.

What is this about? And why don’t they know what kind of seeds these are?

I like the ufo stories so much more than weird seed stories.

Someone in Arkansas not only planted the seeds but gave them Miracle Grow. Anyone living in Asia recognize it? Reminds me of some kind of winter melon.

Arrr... mates!

My alma mater has something interesting.

MIT Pirate Certificate

https://physicaleducationandwellness.mi ... rtificate/
The MIT Pirate Certificate became available in the Fall of 2011. Students who have completed Archery, Fencing, Pistol (or Rifle) and Sailing should send an email to ahoymitpe@mit.edu with name and MIT ID number once grades are posted for all four courses. Check PE&W history after each quarter.

The MIT Pirate Certificate is designed to recognize the completion of the undergraduate Physical Education & Wellness General Institute Requirement.

The MIT Pirate Certificate is only made available to MIT students and is an incentive for undergraduate students to complete their Physical Education & Wellness General Institute Requirement of 4 physical education & wellness courses. It is not a stand-alone certificate. Non-MIT courses and life experience are not counted towards completing the certificate. The MIT Pirate Certificate is for entertainment purposes only and does not give the recipient license to engage in piracy or any pirate activities.

Scam alert: Mysterious seeds from China showing up in mailboxes
BY JAMES GELINAS, KOMANDO.COM
https://www.komando.com/security-privac ... il/747566/
:snippity: According to the Whitehouse Police Department in Ohio, this seed epidemic appears to be nothing more than a so-called “brushing scam.” This tactic is used by sketchy online sellers to bolster their credibility on sales platforms, and make their illegitimate or fledgling businesses appear much larger and more successful than they really are.

Here’s how it works: Vendors scout for addresses they can ship inexpensive packages to that they pay for themselves. Then, they create a fake account using the address they shipped to and write a glowing review of the product they “received.” In reality, victims are nothing more than destinations, and the scam doesn’t hurt anyone financially or otherwise.

What it does do, however, is allow fake reviews to proliferate on platforms that already suffer from them.

Since many of these vendors are scamming as Amazon merchants, it’s worth changing your Amazon password just to be on the safe side.

That said, if you get one of these weird packages, keep a close eye on your credit card and bank statements out of an abundance of caution. It’s also worth monitoring your credit report for signs of fraud. If someone has access to your address, they could potentially have access to more. Tap or click here to see the benefits of freezing your credit.

In closing, this isn’t any kind of financial fraud tactic being used by scammers. Instead, you’re just being used to move goods to inflate someone’s online reputation. And until platforms take moderating comments and reviews more seriously, we may see more scams like this pop up as time goes on.

I’m lucky, I guess, that this hasn’t happened before. But I don’t know what to do.

I woke up this morning to 4K new emails, courtesy of my PayPal scammer. I guess he/she’s mad that I stopped shipment of the phones they purchased with my money. Which, btw, PayPal returned forthwith.

Short of dropping the Email account, is there anything I can do? I’m not going to spend my time unsubscribing from 4K unwanted things, sure to be more and more tomorrrow. Got any tips?
