Everybody Complains About the Weather

Especially when April is still seeing a fair amount of snow. (I blame Global Warming.)

The Latest Millennial Stupidity: They Won’t Touch Raw Meat

Poor dears are afraid to get their hands dirty with that slimy meat. Millennials so squeamish about handling raw meat it is to be sold in touch-free packs

“Customers, particularly younger ones, are quite scared of touching raw meat,” Katherine Hall, product development manager for meat, fish and poultry at the retailer, told The Sunday Times.

The solution? Change the packaging to match their phobias.

So-called millennials – those born after 1980 – have been dubbed the “snowflake” generation for their political correctness and apparent inability to become reconciled to some of everyday life’s harsher truths, such as the fact that meat may have come from a dead animal.

Grow up. (Hat tip to The Road Kill Diaries.)

It’s A Good Thing Subjects of the UK are Forbidden to Defend Themselves

Someone might have been hurt. Oh, wait… Family ‘terrorised’ in East Kilbride machete raid – The Scotsman

A man was struck on the leg with a machete and held in a bedroom with his wife and son while robbers ransacked their home.

Eliminating/adding restrictions on one weapon, didn’t eliminate crime, just shifted he weapons used. And restricting self-defense means the whole damn country is a defenseless-victim-zone.

The authorities are planning to respond by outlawing even more inanimate objects. This time next year I expect they will be outlawing (or requiring registration for) lengths of iron pipe.

Doing the same thing and expecting a different result is one definition of insanity.

I Blame Global Warming

Or whatever they are calling it this week. Three people die in massive spring storm system – UPI.com

Brian Hoeth, NWS emergency response meteorologist in Fort Worth, Texas, said the storm system is so expansive, “literally two-thirds of the country is getting some sort of impact from it.”

“It’s mid-April and we’ve got snow falling across basically the entire north-central United States,” he told USA Today.

The airport is closed in Minneapolis/St Paul. They are prepared to handle a lot of snow, and yet they couldn’t handle this.

Also, New York City gets the heaviest April snow in 36 years.

In sports news, the Chicago Cubs and the Atlanta Braves played baseball today even though it was 38 degrees Fahrenheit when the first pitch was thrown. (Chicago won 14-10.) The Cubs’ manager, criticized the decision to play. Similar weather is expected Sunday.
