  • A Columbia University protester says the NYPD made her remove her hijab—despite new policy
  • I'd be more giddy about that except it's not the cops who ever pay. It's just the city (and thus, by extension, the taxpayers and their non-policing interests). And the city will keep sucking on the department's toes.

  • State Department issues travel alert for LGBTQ people, events abroad
  • Even if it is referring to right-wing assholes, the US is one of the safer places in the world for LGBT folk. That's not high praise of the US so much as damnation for most of the rest of the world, but either way, one is definitely not in "FAR more danger" inside the USA than "almost anywhere else".

  • You are in FAR more danger inside the USA than almost anywhere else. Projection to idiots.

  • High priority chicken
  • Explanation: The Roman Emperor Honorius (who was a complete incompetent, mind), reigned in 410 AD, during the first sack of Rome in some 800 years.

    At that time they say that the Emperor Honorius in Ravenna received the message from one of the eunuchs, evidently a keeper of the poultry, that Rome had perished. And he cried out and said, 'And yet it has just eaten from my hands!' For he had a very large cock, Rome by name; and the eunuch comprehending his words said that it was the city of Rome which had perished at the hands of Alaric, and the emperor with a sigh of relief answered quickly: 'But I thought that my fowl Rome had perished.' So great, they say, was the folly with which this emperor was possessed

  • LUCANIAN COWS, RUN
  • Explanation: The Romans were not particularly familiar with elephants during the early-to-mid Republic. When Pyrrhus of Epirus first confronted them with elephants, they were called 'Lucanian Cows' (Luca Bos) because they were first seen in Lucania.

    The elephant is shown coming over the mountain, as about 60 years later, the Carthaginian general Hannibal Barca would lead an army of mercenaries with war elephants over the Alps to attack Italy.

  • Sliding into your DMs
  • Pegging is anal penetration via strap-on

    "Sliding into your DMs (direct messages)" is a term meaning "to message someone" usually with the implication of flirtatiousness or the like.

    A Dungeon Master, one who runs a game of Dungeons and Dragons, is often called a DM.

    Thus 'sliding into your DMs' also fits pegging a dungeon master.
