Just to throw it in for the discussion it might cause.. ;)

 

I haven't driven in enough of Europe to make a fair comparison.

That is not a real woman.  That is a $10,000 android that can walk and talk and do...other things.

Literally what the Hell is the world coming to...

If you ever try "driving" in Ecuador, you'll never complain about American drivers again.

"Asparagus recipe appears in Belgian law database"

https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-57315748

"The text appeared to have been accidentally copied and pasted into legislation on the price of drugs and medical supplies.

"Bon Appétit!" read the final line of the recipe, before returning to more serious issues.

The text has now been deleted from the database.

The error was discovered following an update made to the French-version text of the Belgian official journal, or Moniteur Belge, where laws, decrees and other official notes are published."

""In this case, Patterson acted in a reasonable manner under all the circumstances because the wild iguana was first to engage with physical violence, during the encounter," his attorneys wrote.

Florida's stand your ground law states deadly force can be used if a person "reasonably believes that using or threatening to use such force is necessary to prevent imminent death or great bodily harm." In this case, Patterson's attorneys said the animal was the first to engage in aggression, so Patterson had a right to defend himself."

A bold move.

Civilization, in fact, grows more and more maudlin and hysterical; especially under democracy it tends to degenerate into a mere combat of crazes; the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary. - H.L. Mencken
