To ridicule the uterus regulators (motivated by "procreation"), a proposed $100 fine for men chicken-choking (cf. the great Bill Hicks's line: "Entire civilizations have been wiped out on my stomach") [Texas Tribune]

Christopher Diiorio tried using faked Secret Service IDs because, well, you're not gonna get laid based on owning a pet poop-scooping company. [KDKA-TV]

[This may go sideways, but remember you saw it here first] This Californian, "Vinny Ohh," wants to body-modify to become totally genderless (in case you've been wondering about college kids getting to choose among 30-some "genders" as to how they "identify"). Vinny claims he's had 100+ "procedures" so far, but the heavy lifting remains to be done. [Metro News (London)]

In the ongoing Navy corruption case, defense contractor "Fat Leonard" Francis allegedly, among other misdeeds, arranged a sex party in which Douglas MacArthur memorabilia were used as sex aids. [Washington Post]

Chimpanzees with "human" rights is so-o-o 20th century; in New Zealand, they have the Whanganui River. [BBC News]

Pornhub upgrades its p.r. office: campaigns to (1) clear snow in Boston and (2) what, get pandas to do it more? [Fortune] [PCMag]

And so it begins: A NY state assemblyman introduces a law requiring, upon request, removal of online "free" speech--meaning, inevitably, speech that anyone objects to, although the bill has intellectually upmarket phrases for it, like removing "inaccurate" or "irrelevant" stuff. [Mr. Jefferson, already uncomfortable in his grave from the 2016 election, now desperately needs a drink.] [ZeroHedge.com]

Whanganui River - I'm looking forward to the inevitable murder trial, after someone drowns in it, or perhaps vandalism and/or destruction of property charge when it overflows into someone's house.

Pornhub: has had a great PR office for quite a while. I refuse to give an opinion on the site itself, but their publicity stunts are good.

On-line free speech: as if we ever had that in the first place... You are allowed to say what Facebook and Google approve of, and you're to like it.

Vinny Ohh: With all the "gender choosing" going on, there had to be someone who decided it wanted to be "None of the above."

I'm looking forward to the day when I can, while exercising my right to control my own body, slap some stupid liberals from Texas upside the head.

There go all the Youtube cat videos in NY, because what could be more irrelevant than those?

Virtual: to be fair, I think "I want shot of this whole business" is a more reasonable choice than the "I can't make up my mind and I want everything and you <i>will</i. obey my whim of the day!" that is *"genderfluid". As long as he allows others to use reasonable English pronouns for him and doesn't insist on being called "e", he can be genderless for all I care.
