Leader of Canada's House of Commons apologizes for honoring man who fought for Nazis
  • "It's ridiculous this was allowed to happen and that nobody checked or cared about what the "First Ukrainian Division" was."

    The guy who invited and introduced him said he did it because the dude was from his district, and didn't bother to tell anybody about it, which is plausable, I guess. What's shocking to me is that he is the Speaker of the House. He clearly didn't do his research, and doesn't know his history (he said the Nazi bravely fought the Russians for the independence of Ukraine, or some stupid shit like that). What is this, the US?

  • A look at the uranium-based ammo the US is sending to Ukraine
  • That is just wrong, it certainly is radioactive, just not capable of going critical, which would define it as a "nuclear weapon". Depleted uranium emits radiation, albeit at low levels, therefore it is radioactive

  • Here’s How Doctors On Cable News Assessed McConnell’s Freeze
  • The fact that his team clearly had a protocol for this and no one freaked out about it tells me this happens a lot more frequently off camera than on. This is what we can expect from the Senate minority leader moving forward. At least until '26, if he lasts that long.

    San Francisco's North Beach streets clogged as long line of Cruise robotaxis come to a standstill
  • I was recently in SF visiting my son, who lives right off Haight St. I left a bar on Haight on a Saturday night a little tipsy, so I walked a few blocks down Haight to clear my head and came upon one of these at an intersection, and a stray traffic cone. Naturally, I had to try it, and it worked! Well, kinda. The cone fell off the hood immediately, but landed in the crosswalk right in front of the car, and the car just froze.

    Delighted with myself, I walked up about a block, gleefully checking back over my shoulder every few steps. The car was frozen. Some passerby snapped a picture of the scene. It was hilarious! It was about that time I decided to head back down to the intersection and snap a pic myself, at least two minutes after I placed the cone.

    When I returned to the scene of the crime (as one does), the back window rolls down, and the guy in the back yells: "Yo, dude. What the fuck!?"

    I apologized, removed the cone, and took my drunk ass home, laughing all the way.

  • Mission SJC is among the best preserved missions in California. It's a great place to visit, as well as an awesome event venue, and a treasured piece of California history. However, the Mission system was instrumental in wiping out native cultures, enslaving their people and the eventual conquest of their lands and way of living, in the name of God, of course.

  • Most Catholics in the US were keenly aware of the abuse issues, it's just that they didn't talk about it openly, and the media was loathe to cover it for fear of being labeled anti-Catholic, as she was.

    Source: My mother was a Catholic nun for 15 years before leaving the convent to marry my dad, also a devout Catholic. I was an altar boy, went to Catholic schools through High School, and grew up in the 80's and 90's. It was well known among the church and school communities which priests to steer clear of and why.

    A reminder that Smoke on the Water and Cat Scratch Fever are the same fucking song, and that despite this fact, Smoke on the Water is a better song.

    Just trying to get some content up here, figured I'd start with my favorite Icculus. Written by Danielle Steele, of course.
