Hunter Biden withdraws from Presidential race following felony conviction
  • I was going to blast Fox News, but hell, pretty close coverage.

    Hunter's conviction.

    Trump's conviction.

    Fair enough I guess!

    No, I didn't read the articles, just pointing out the "severity" of the headlines were similar. And no, one thing isn't exactly like the other, I get that. Still, both were more than little newsworthy and you gotta admit, the fat pic of Trump with "GUILTY" plastered on there was hardly prejudicial.

    (Now if you had looked at foxnews.com on 01/06/21, yeah, radio silence until much later in the day. I checked, that day.)

  • Pathetic.
  • What was it Robert Heinlein said about the best revenge being to outlive your enemies? LOL, we short fuckers live longer.

    Heard the term "little old man" or "little old lady"? Yeah, that's why they're old.

  • If human skin was sometimes completely patterned (eg. spots, stripes, etc.), what pattern (if any) would you want to have?
  • Dated a Jamaican woman with a bit of vitiligo. She was wildly attractive to me without being "pretty" in any conventional sense.

    5'10", 110lbs. Kinky hair, but not a fro. Dark and light skin, and not just the lighter areas, all at once.

    LOL, I could go on. She was a beautiful, smart and interesting woman. With spots.

  • EU elections 2024 live: Emmanuel Macron dissolves French parliament and calls snap elections after huge far-right gains
  • LMAO at the hate on this comment.

    We can talk about immigration drivers, all night long, but the fact is that the host country is always resentful of immigrants. It doesn't matter if that resentment is fair or true or justified, it exists.

    Buncha children in here crying, "Racism bad!" Yeah. We know. Some of us grew up on Sesame Street and Mr. Rogers. That doesn't change countries seeing a bunch of poor people flooding in and taking their resources. And whether they're actually sucking resources doesn't fucking matter. It looks like they are.

    And for all the whiners, how about you take in a poor immigrant family and take care of them yourself? Put your money where your mouth is?

    "Uh no. The government should do that for free, somehow, and I don't want to actually see or deal with it. Or I'll leave a stern downvote!"

    (And for the inbound haters, my wife is a brown immigrant, not even a citizen. Trying to get her youngest moved here.)

  • Why Canadians are angry with their biggest supermarket
  • I seriously doubt that was the idea. Someone probably decided the onions looked nicer that way. People are so detached from nature, they probably think the roots and specks of dirt are nasty. Besides, how many people you know regrow green onions? Never talked to anyone IRL that does this.

    Been meaning to try it, but from the pic you're talking about, I bet you could still grow those. I've shaved 'em off pretty tight and they rooted fine. Been meaning to try cutting them more like the pic and experiment.

    And for anyone who hasn't tried it, DO IT. It's so nice to step into the flower garden, chop some tops and have fresh. I grew the same two batches for 7-years, non-stop.

  • Always the shortest ones 😂😂
  • Strongly disagree. I find any breast over the small end of average to be flat out gross. So I'm shallow? Won't date anyone with a penis either, so I guess I'm a homophobe?

    So to be a decent person I must date people with a feature that turns me completely off? Can I date you to get started?

  • micromobility - Ebikes, scooters, longboards: Whatever floats your goat, this is micromobility @lemmy.world shalafi @lemmy.world

    Looking to buy, but I'm clueless.

    I'm wanting something to run around the hood and offroad, mostly in deep sand. An electric version of this: https://www.tractorsupply.com/tsc/product/coleman-mini-bike-bt200x-g

    What else do I need to be concerned about?

    How do I find owls arounds here? I hear Barred Owls all the time, never seen one.

    Got a couple of acres in a NW Florida swamp. Been hearing Barred Owls for years.

    How do I spot one? And tricks other than sitting still and being quiet? They seem to come pretty close. Can I "bait" them somehow with a box or something they would like to visit?

    Funny story: First night I camped, three were doing their call/response thing. Every time they called, closer, and closer. Freaky sounding, one of the calls sounds almost like a child crying out.

    For some reason, my idiot self thought coyotes were closing in. (Yes, I know well what coyotes sound like.)

    Got a little freaked, grabbed my .410 (tiny shotgun) and decided to take the fight to them, scare 'em off (didn't want them rooting around my site). Again, I'm not the sharpest tool in the shed, promptly got lost.

    Got home, "Hey Google! What do coyotes sound like?" Oh FFS. I am not a clever man.

    Saw a Pileated Woodpecker the other day though! Super cool and way bigger than I thought.

    Tips on carrying a 1911 for a small guy?

    Probably just not feasible, but I have many pistols and the 1911 is what I'm best at. I carry an LCP MAX and some other .380s, but I'm not so hot with those. Also have a slightly larger Ruger 9MM that works great. Just about can't miss with the Colt Government Model.

    I suppose the answer is to practice, practice, practice with the smaller guns?

    Saw this on the table. Been waiting all year for the prism to start working well!

    So Kissinger must have had use to someone? What did he do right and for who?

    It stands to reason he must have been doing something right to have stayed so close to the halls of power.

    I was a toddler when he was carpet bombing Cambodia, never knew him as anything but "an important person" that was sometimes on the TV. Only learned of his crimes in the past decade.

    How did an in-your-face war criminal retain such influence for so long?

    Can I play here if I'm only an ally?

    I'm an old (GenX), straight, white, American guy, but I'm right with you all.

    I might say things that are offensive, because I can't pretend to be in your shoes and might get something wrong. I'm often just trying to understand. Hell, I didn't figure out that gay rights are civil rights, my rights, our rights, until 10+ years ago.

    It's 100% OK if you want to keep this a non-cis space. I get that and won't be butthurt.

    (If shotguns are your jam, I got many more to post! Weirdly, of all the antique and vintage shotguns I have, this cheap-ass Turkish thing runs like a dream.)

    I've got two sewing machines. Where do I even begin to learn?

    Nothing fancy, neither is terribly new or old. Not being able to sew is really holding me back on DIY projects.

    Is there an "Operating a Sewing Machine for Dummies" video or tutorial you like?
