IF YOU LIE TO THE DMV, WHY WOULD YOU TELL THE TRUTH TO AN AIRLINE Finnish Airlines is asking passengers to give up their deepest, darkest secret....their weight. They are asking passengers to volunteer to hop on a scale so they can study how much passengers and bags actually weigh these days. Why would they ask you to suffer such an indignity?
The aim of the weigh-ins, which might be more familiar to travelers who have flown on small planes, is to update nearly decade-old data on average passenger weights as it expands its route network and needs to accurately forecast payloads and how much fuel it requires.
Good luck with that guys.
BOWE BERGDAHL GETS AWAY WITH IT And avoids jail time for deserting his post and subsequently getting captured by the Taliban. He got a dishonorable discharge and no jail time and has to pay a lousy fine. And in what would indicate he has stones the size of cantaloupes, Berhdahl is appealing the dishonorable discharge. What an ahole.
THE BIG THREE NETWORKS DIDN'T MENTION THE DONNA BRAZILE STORY AT ALL And this is my shocked face. Brazile dropped the bombshell that Hillary stole the primaries and ran the DNC like her own private slush fund, but that wasn't newsworthy to the teams at CBS, NBC, or ABC. And they wonder why people don't trust them.
OF COURSE A FLORIDA WOMAN WAS CHARGED WITH DUI ON A HORSE. OF COURSE SHE WAS. And I'm very sad to report that I ACTUALLY KNOW SOMEONE WHO DID THIS TOO. Being from Florida you sort of get used to this sort of thing.
THIS IS WHAT REAL PRINCIPLES REALLY LOOK LIKE, AND THE SAINTS SHOULD SHUT UP The New Orleans Saints wanted to honor a disabled Navy Veteran at a game with an award. Cmdr. John Wells was to receive the Peoples Health Champion Award for his work on behalf of fellow veterans. Cmdr. Wells sent a letter which said in part,
“Although I am touched and honored to be selected for such an award, the ongoing controversy with NFL players' disrespect for the national flag forces me to decline to participate in the presentation,” Wells said. "I am unable, in good conscience, to enter an NFL stadium while this discourtesy prevails. Since this award is tainted with the dishonorable actions of the NFL and its players, I cannot accept it.”
The Saints responded with a very un self aware response that said,
“We will not allow Mr. Wells' decision and subsequent media appearances to distract our players and organization from continuing to honor and support our military and veterans," the statement read. "We, as an organization, have decided to move on from this sad and divisive discourse and focus our attention on supporting our military and veterans.”
Really dumb move guys. Really dumb move.
THE PARIS AGREEMENT IS A BIG FAT FRAUD But don't take my word for it, just ask the UN. They have admitted that even if the Paris Treaty were followed to the letter, which we all know it won't be, it is still not enough to curtail the catastrophic warming predicted by enviros. So why bother? I'd rather spend the trillions on finding ways to mitigate the warming rather than useless actions to try and stop it.
