  1. In Alabama one can legally purchase an Assault Rifle, but it is illegal to purchase a Kinder Egg or a Dildo I for one have not heard of any “Mass Choking” by miniature toys or MultipleDeaths by Orgasm in the places where such are legally available.
  2. Granted, Rape is a form of Sexual Assault, but is often interchangeable In most cases Physical presence is required for an assault to take place, otherwise it is classed as Sexual Harassment, the only one which does not require a presence is Grooming of a Minor, the alleged victim is 21 so not a minor. https://inspiredelearning.com/blog/sexual-harassment-vs-sexual-assault/ It’s common for the term “sexual assault” to be used interchangeably with “rape.” Still, other forms of sexual assault also include other non-consensual physical contact, such as groping, fondling, kissing, forcing the victim to touch a body part, statutory rape, and others.
  3. Campaigners say the avatar of a 21-year-old researcher was sexually assaulted in Meta's virtual reality platform Horizon Worlds. Corporate accountability group SumOfUs, for whom the researcher works, says it shows Meta needs better plans to mitigate harms in the metaverse. Meta's annual shareholder meeting takes place on Wednesday. The company told the BBC there were safety tools in Horizon Worlds to help people have a "positive experience". Noting that Meta had not yet seen the full SumOfUs report, a spokesperson told the BBC the firm wanted everyone in Horizon Worlds to access the safety procedures "and help us investigate and take action". Link So a person that does not exist, is allegedly raped by another person who does not exist, in a place that does not exist Hold the Front Page Stop the world I wanna get off.
  4. Sanders has changed his tune recently ’We need to take on the NRA, expand background checks, end the gun show loophole, and ban the sale and distribution of assault weapons.” Soutce
  5. Stop Voting Republican, the NRA are a major supporter of Republicans and campaign against democrats. The Republican Party cannot be impartial on this matter Review the Second Amendment, a law passed in 1791 needs to be brought up to date. I am not saying “Right to bear Arms” should be restricted to Muskets and Flintlocks, but the reason why there were no mass shootings in the past was because the shooter could be overpowered whilst reloading.
  6. Semi Automatics were banned in 1988 following the Hungerford Massacre https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Firearms_(Amendment)_Act_1988 There are still illegally held guns and gun crimes. Gun deaths but at a rate of 0.23 per 100,000 compared to 12.21 per 100,000 in the US, I. The USA over 50 times more likely of being killed by a gun than the UK.
  7. And yet another one At least 18 young children and a teacher have died in a shooting at a primary school in south Texas. The 18-year-old gunman opened fire at Robb Elementary School in the city of Uvalde before he was killed by law enforcement, officials said. Investigators say the suspect was armed with a handgun, an AR-15 semi-automatic rifle and high-capacity magazines. The teenager is suspected of shooting his grandmother at the start of the rampage. Link Cant have Gun Control now can we, that will go against the Second Amendment written in 1791 when guns were Muskets and Flintlocks capable of 3-4 rounds per minute tops depending on reloading rate compared to 45 round per minute AR-15 Assault Rifle which everybody needs
  8. But Coss has already said he doesn’t know what he is on about.
  9. Some Crypto up 60% since 10AM ICT on Saturday. Mrs Kong decided to have a little flutter on it, on the premise of “it cant go much lower” Pity it was only 10,000 THB, retrospect is such a great thing haha.
  10. Don’t know about other countries but in Thailand it is just a simple online transaction similar to cashing in shares …. or so Mrs Kong tells me.

    I would hazard a guess that the majority of under 50 would stare quizzically if one was to mention “Heath Robinson” I find this rather ironic since many of this age group are involved in IT, the epitome of finding complex solutions to simple solve a simple task and adding Bolt’Ons (not fake boobies) to already complex systems to tweak them slightly to adapt to change rather than start from scratch. Anyone who has seen “Under the Hood” of even a basic IT system will recognise add on modules for this that and the other. I should know because I am a bugger for such with databases.

    An exhibition has opened celebrating the artist William Heath Robinson, whose work became so well-known his surname earned a dictionary entry. Heath Robinson, born in Finsbury Park in north London on 31 May 1872, became renowned for his detailed drawings and satirical take on life. His sketches of bizarre mechanical gadgets led to his name becoming synonymous with the absurdly ingenious. Link Loved his work, an eccentric genius. When I was younger and we used to “Bodge and Make Do” sort of thing to make something work it was always referred to a a bit of a “Heath Robinson”
  13. Even though MPX is prevalent amongst the Gay Community, it isn’t a Gay Infection per se, since it is not sexually transmitted / bodily fluids as per standard STD’s but passed on via skin contact.
  14. Even though LGBTQ Community are denying Monkeypox is a “Gay Disease”, most of cases are amongst Gay Men, and in UK Smallpox vaccine is being offered to Gay Community to begin with. MPX
