PETA wants drones so they can bomb hunters?
From the article I'm guessing it's more survellience drones rather than the armed ones with the bombs, but still your 'WTF' is echoed.
Twitter hashtag announcing Margaret Thatcher's death accidentally leads to a death hoax for a certain singer....
Guess she couldn't turn back time after all.
Submarine captain fakes his own death to end an affair.....then is recommended an honorable discharge while retaining his rank.
I'd like to hear
@Souderwan 's opinion of this, since he's actually a Navy man and is more familiar with rules and regulations than I would be.
Personally, I tend to agree with one of the commenters at the bottom of the article....
I think the death fakery was posted months ago, the discharge is new information.
What's this about "another lapse of judgment"? Isn't he already being discharged from the service?
I'm not entirely certain, but it's possible
@Aytee-Aytee is referring to the Air Force General who overturned a jury's rape verdict of an air force serviceman. Who since, the verdict was overturned by the general, is now allowed back into the Air Force.
Why does the word "discharge" still make me giggle?
Oh yes, because that part of my brain is still twelve.
If the Sec. of the Navy signs off on it as an honorable discharge, it's possible that he would be allowed to re-enlist. Note that he was allowed to keep his rank as Captain. That's why I wonder what Souderwan thinks, because he knows more than I do. I'm only a sailor's son...I'd ask my father, but he left the service almost 30 years ago. Brian's in the here and now.
Iranian scientist claims to have invented a time machine.
Oh, Iran, what won't you pretend to think up next?
Saudi religious police expels three Emirati men from festival for being "too handsome".
“A festival official said the three Emiratis were taken out on the grounds they are too handsome and that the Commission members feared female visitors could fall for them,” the news service said, adding that the festival’s management took urgent measures to deport the three to Abu Dhabi.
I'm glad the Saudi religious police are trained in identifying "too handsome" men.
They'll fit in, with all the too cute kittens people send there.
(Garfield and Friends reference)
"There! After that too handsome man! After him boys!"
Another Saudi morality police story. This one's older, from January.
Now I want to go there and see if I'm hot enough to be expelled from the country.
Architects and builders are now phasing out the "Master Bedroom" in favor of the "Owner's Suite"in house blueprints because political correctness trumps common sense.
EDIT -- If we extrapolate on the story a bit....."He-Man and the Magical Peoples of the Universe" does not have the same ring to it.
Am I sleeping with my cousin? There's an app for that.
Or at least, there is in Iceland. Might've come in handy for these guys if they had had it back then.
Woman: I didn't molest that kid because I'm a racist, I don't touch black kids!
Well, that's a fresh defense strategy!
And about Iceland, I guess that app would come in handy there with a population of just a little over 300 000.
A tough tortoise who survived Nazi attacks and blazing bonfire was feared to have finally met his match in this year’s snow – until he made a miraculous recovery.
