QuoteA new law in Michigan will prohibit local governments from banning, regulating or imposing fees on the use of plastic bags and other containers.https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/energy-environment/wp/2016/12/30/yes-this-is-real-michigan-just-banned-banning-plastic-bags/?utm_term=.95e141d0ebb5
How many different levels up are possible? Can you pass a law banning banning banning plastics?
Random complaint: I have been handy about the house since I was a kid, and have been fixing up old houses since 1998. I used to work for a company that specialized in old house restoration, I used to co-own a company that specialized in vintage hardware, and have done work on at least a dozen old houses. I specialized in vintage plumbing, but I am also fluent with electrical, framing, and basic finish carpentry. I can lay tile, and have taught others to lay tile. I used to, naively, think that the reason people invariably talk to me like I have no idea what I'm doing was because I was young. As I got older I thought they were underestimating my age, and therefore my experience. Now that I'm all old and gray-haired, it's impossible to ignore that it's just my vagina that leads people to talk to me like I am clueless and helpless around home improvement.
I'm so, so fucking sick of it.
In general, I'm sick of being talked to like I'm incompetent just because I'm female.
In general, I'm fucking sick of people underestimating women just because we have tits and vaginas.
My own household is an egalitarian dream, but as soon as I interact with people outside of our little paradise, it's back to being talked to like I'm a retarded version of a man.
I am horrified that this is the world I'm sending my daughters out into; a world where, by virtue of their sex, they will be treated as nincompoops by default.
Fuck all of this bullshit.
Really? I was not aware of that, dudeseems like schrodinger (or his cat) might have something to say about it
Remember that Schrodinger put forth the cat analogy as a way of pointing out that quantum theory was garbage because a cat that's both alive and dead is insane what is wrong with you people.
Civilian, the technology is available and cheap, there is a culture of entitlement, the idea of using drones in hit and run bombings removes the accountability, maybe I am being alarmist, but the culture is there for another unibomber.
when my son was in Iraq, he said ISIS had more drone coverage than the Marines did. Cheap from Amazon.com, easy to learn how to use.
weaponizing one would be a breeze.
Oh my god...
Scotland is a distinctly different place from england. That's what I personally mean by "country" The english are a lot unlike us. The land itself is totally different and inferior. There's some nice bits but it's basically a shithole. Wales is a bit better but still, it's a bit shite really. In terms of politics, it's a total clusterfuck with a semi-autonomous parliament full of entitled rich pricks, representing big money, locked in a squabbling contest with a bunch of entitled rich pricks down south, representing bigger money, over who gets what share of the skim.
Those wankers try to tell me I'm part of some "United Kingdom" of self interested bullshit power fuckery. I laugh. I'm scottish. I sincerely do not give a fuck.
