    That's probably the best possible outcome.

    I read two Canadians were arrested for publicly urinating.

    There is no news, because that's what we want you to see.

    Is the whole UFOs being real thing legit guys? Like apparently it was on the CNN and NYTimes, with a source from The Navy, but nobody is talking about it.

    That there's a video of something weird leaked from the air force? Yes.

    But given that that video is literally all we know about it, and it's fairly likely it was a test of some kind of experimental stealth drone or something, there's no reason to get all excited about it.

    Well that post about UFOs was enough to make me google what you were talking about. Here's a fun quote from the navy spokesperson on the topic:

    Yeah the article that I read was all about changing terminology from UFO and UAP.
    There is also the whole thing about the videos that were released not having been properly declassified? I guess. I dunno. I barely paid attention to the article.

    Thomas Cook, a brand that has been in continuous use since 1841, has collapsed, leaving 600,000 vacationers stranded abroad and making for the largest British peacetime repatriation effort in history.

    Given the current straits of the government, perhaps a small flotilla of boats could be arranged to meet the marooned Brits by a convenient continental beach? Somewhere like Dunkirk, say?

    One of my colleagues got affected by the collapse, he was supposed to be flying to Cuba next Monday for 2 weeks. He's not that upset, he got a fantastic last minute offer on a much fancier 2 week stay in Mexico for the same dates so he's still going away.

    What I really don't understand is folk who are saying the Government should have bailed them out, or should have nationalised them. I get that they've been around for donkeys but they're a mediocre travel agency that failed at being competitive. Lots of businesses fail, its not the job of the Government to save failing businesses.

    Cattle found drained of blood with some organs missing. No blood at the scene.

    Cowboys are taking safety precautions and local ranchers have been made aware. There’s a reward out for any information. The wildest part is the implication some one has been doing this since the 80’s.

    Northern California is facing major power outages as weather conditions turn the area into a hotspot for wildfire. PG&E announced today that they will shut off power starting at midnight and these outages may last until next Tuesday. This comes on the heels of major fires last fire season, which were found to be the responsibility of PG&E.
