I tried to put up my Christmas decorations in July and someone said "haha isn't that a bit early" and I have never been more sure that the Mexicans are going to destroy our good christian way of life

We won’t be able to get certain foods like bananas or tomatoes but it’s not like we won’t be able to eat. And we’ll be leaving at a time when British produce is beginning to come into season so it’s the best possible time to leave.

Hey, at least growing subsistence rations on the allotment will be full employment.

Britain's going to fucking *halt* without bananas. Everyone on this hell island is going to get some sort of scurvy.

Funny story: Currants, which are very easy to grow in the UK and are vastly more common (and mix nicely with far more things) than limes or any other citrus fruits, have something like ten times the vitamin C of lemons or limes.

Take heart Ireland: the average sized spud contains more vit C than the average sized orange.

That woman needs a time out from the internet. Forever. And possibly from her kids too.

A lot of my friends who have kids struggle with the idea that their kids are not property. It's nothing new. Parents struggle with the basic idea that their kids are people. They're too used to them being kids. Not that kids aren't people, of course. I maintain that the greatest mistake that people make is to think children know nothing.

I'm sympathetic to TSA employees who are furloughed. They're people, they're working, they're not getting paid for it, and that goddamn sucks.

But if this gets people to take a good long look at the TSA and realize that pretty much everything they're doing is unnecessary and we don't need them, then that would be a positive outcome. Again, I'd be sympathetic to all the people having to look for new jobs -- but we've known for ages that the TSA is invasive security theater that doesn't make us any safer.

There were two changes, post-9/11, that have made flying safer: locking the cockpit, and putting air marshals on flights. (And the latter has brought its share of wasteful bullshit too.) Everything else is kabuki.

And now, a take so hot it must have just come straight out of the oven:
TIL that during a prisoner revolt at Auschwitz in 1944, an SS guard was burned alive by prisoners in a crematorium oven

Good on them for fighting back

Yep. let's celebrate criminals for burning law enforcement alive.

...criminals?

By the law of the land at the time, yes just as the guards were legitimate law enforcement officials. Regardless whether you think the law was just or not that doesn't change the fact of what it was and it's assault on law and order.

These ideas wouldn't take hold if the general population knew that Lawful Evil was an alignment.

I'm pretty tired of hearing "but the joooobs" suggested as a valid excuse for continuing practices that are actively hurting people / planet / everything. The problem is that in a supposedly wealthy nation most people are one hardship away from hunger and homelessness. The job is a red herring.

Agreed that it would be super if we come out of this by taking away TSA. I just got my TSA precheck number, so maybe it'll work like how when you bring an umbrella it doesn't rain.
