Rachel Maddow claims she has Trump's tax returns.

This is either the start of something glorious, massive false advertising or a huge piece of calculated disinformation.  Either way, should be fun.

Yes, and the dispute over ownership of the North Sea oil deposits.

On the other hand, removing Scotland from the Union would mean 59 less seats in Parliament, only one of which is reliably Tory.  It lowers the bar for obtaining a majority considerably.

I really think they'd be happy to see the back of Northern Ireland and let it be the Republic's problem.  Westminster saves money, less seats in Parliament (meaning greater theoretical Tory majority), washing hands of the Irish issue...I could see it appealing to short term thinkers.

11 billion deficit, I believe?

Probably higher, once Unionist terrorism starts up again.

The British intelligence services spied on the Russian embassy by using a device to read vibrations from microwave energy in the room and translate them via the mirrors into surveillance transcripts.

However, I think Kellyanne Conway is just inhabiting the universe where the Bowling Green Massacre happened.  Again.

So, it turned out the manager ordered my co-worker to take the sign down.

My manager was ordered to take it down by the Head of Operations.  The insufferable know-it-all in charge of Health and Safety.

Fortunately, the gate is fixed, so the problem is solved, but unfortunately this means I cannot pursue it any further.

Just too lazy to follow the damn law, which despite the whining from the Daily Mail columnists, is mostly common fucking sense.

I found video of the other night shift leader deliberately removing the code.  Now written an email to my manager regarding it, and I'm copying everything to a personal email address.  If I don't see swift action on this, I'm going to the HSE, and if they don't do something about it, the Times Educational Supplement.  They love a good story which allows them to bash stupidly expensive private schools their reading demographic cannot afford.

If the AI is tied to FPS, as it is with many modern games, we would see many NPCs acting strangely and out of sync with events around them when they hit those resource bottlenecks.

Kellyanne Conway has had to confirm that she did not mean she thought the Trump administration were being surveilled through microwaves that turn into cameras by Obama.

What a time to be alive.

Before you laugh too quickly, I remind you it's only March. Just imagine the full blown insanity that you'll be enjoying after a couple of years of this shit. I'm actually expecting a statement on the reptoid menace any day now.

Quote from: The Washington Post
Trump, according to Stone, wasn’t difficult to persuade. The president-elect is “an inveterate watcher of television. He has watched Infowars, Stone says. “They hit it off.”

Quote from: Right Wing Watch
Jones told Icke that while he doesn’t yet buy this theory, he suspects it is right and that it doesn’t matter either way since, whether or not they are space lizards, the shadowy figures who are running the world have the same nefarious, anti-human end game.

So, after pointing out that padlocking an emergency exit without a code being provided to residents is kinda sorta against the law, three things have happened:

1) I had a perfunctory reply from the headmaster
2) I had a reply from my department manager chewing me a new one for not reporting the problem to my line manager in the first instance...the same line manager who had been here for 2 days with the issue present, and had not acted on it
3) Someone took down the sign I made next to the gate, giving residents the access code in the case of emergency.

Unfortunately for whatever idiot is involved in point 3, there is a camera looking directly at that spot, recording 24/7. And I have access to the stored video.

Here's some crazy for you - a Russian oligarch who wants to make Putin into a Tsar also bankrolls French, German, Italian and Austrian far-right political groups, and helps fund the war in the Donbass.

He's also very popular with the American religious right.

In other news, dehydration is no joke.  I know this, I know it kills people, but I don't think I realised just how low on fluids I was getting on my day when I finish shift.  Between the messed up sleep patterns and whatever, it's way too easy to lose track of your intake.

This is how it starts.  This time next month you'll be deep into a Boku no Pico marathon session while ordering waifu pillow slips from eBay, with no end in sight.

I've immunized myself by applying steady doses of JoJo's Bizarre Adventure.

Nani the fuck did you just fucking iimasu about watashi, you chiisai bitch desuka? Watashi’ll have anata know that watashi graduated top of my class in Nihongo 3, and watashi’ve been involved in iroirona Nihongo tutoring sessions, and watashi have over sanbyaku perfect test scores. Watashi am trained in kanji, and watashi is the top letter writer in all of southern California. Anata are nothing to watashi but just another weaboo. Watashi will korosu anata the fuck out with vocabulary the likes of which has never been mimasu’d before on this continent, mark watashino fucking words. Anata thinks anata can get away with hanashimasing that kuso to watashi over the intaaneto? Omou again, fucker. As we hanashimasu, watashi am contacting watashino secret netto of otakus across the USA, and anatano IP is being traced right now so you better junbishimasu for the ame, ujimushi. The ame that korosu’s the pathetic chiisai thing anata calls anatano life. You’re fucking shinimashita’d, akachan.

Also worth mentioning that Trump - who is usually keen to jump on Twitter and opine about everything under the sun - stayed silent on the CIA leak for 24 hours, before issuing a press statement via Spicer.
