Been binging on “Farscape”, an Aussie sci-fi show from the 90’s. The evil ones are called “Peacekeepers”. They can’t shoot any better than “Imperial Storm Troopers”.
Headline I never thought I’d see: “Former Harvard Fencing Coach Accused of Accepting $1.5 Million Bribe in Admissions Scam.” A former Harvard fencing coach was arrested Monday for allegedly taking a bribe from a parent who wanted to secure spots for his two kids at the Ivy League school, prosecutors said Monday. No, I’m not surprised at someone bribing a school to gain admission for their kids. I just never thought it’s be a “fencing coach”.
Am I the only one: That does not find women in holey, ripped, and torn jeans attractive? It does nothing for me, in fact, it detracts.
Headline I don’t like: “Executives from Fortune 500 corporations say they are planning to intervene if Democrat Joe Biden is not inaugurated into office by January 20, 2021.” Who the hell elected them spokespersons of America? They want to run the country, let’em run for office. Otherwise, sit down and shut up.
Love(Head)Line I can’t believe: DEAR DEIDRE: AFTER spending more than £6,000 on a dating site, I’ve realised the beautiful young women on there are con artists. I’m a man in my fifties looking for a serious relationship. On these sites you chat to a “beautiful female” from, say, Russia or Ukraine and spend around £1,000 just to have her contact details. You are supposed to be given her email address and phone number – but the phone number never appears, only the email address, and the “lady” doesn’t even reply to the emails. I have gone through the same rigmarole with four different women. OH, I believe the headline, I just can’t believe any one in the world is this stupid.
Staying in Honolulu this weekend. Enjoy the Saturday Story and Sunday Rant. I’m going to drink some Sexton Irish, watch no football, and enjoy my weekend.
