"You're very clever, young man, but it's alleged perverts all the way down."

A communications adviser to Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles E. Grassley (R-Iowa) during the Supreme Court confirmation fight has abruptly resigned after an accusation of sexual harassment — an allegation he denies.

[...]

NBC News reported Saturday morning that it had been investigating Ventry’s past employment history, including his tenure in the office of North Carolina House Majority Leader John Bell in 2017. According to the network, Ventry was let go from the office after a female GOP staffer in the North Carolina General Assembly accused him of sexual harassment. He had also been accused of embellishing his résumé.

Here, you can see a Swiss canton persecuting fursuiters in the guise of persecuting Muslims:

Voters in the northeastern Swiss canton of St. Gallen on Sunday overwhelmingly approved a new law that would see facial coverings such as the burqa banned in public, with two-thirds casting a ballot in favor of the legislation under the Swiss system of direct democracy.

One other Swiss canton, that of Italian-speaking Ticino in the south, introduced a similar law two years ago.

The law was approved against the will of the regional St. Gallen government, which will now be obliged to implement the result. The outcome is valid despite just 36-percent turnout at the referendum.

Unlike astroturf, which is organic only in the sense of being made of carbon-based polymers, astromoss can be readily manufactured by organic growth processes.

As you probably already know, a large part of being a Sovereign Citizen(tm)(p)(c) involves navigating four-wheeled vessels along landlubber waterways in the never-ending search for uniformed road pirates, and upon finding some, reciting magic spells at them -- in the not-at-all-ridiculous[1] hope that this makes the police vanish just like the windmills without fail fled don Quijote de la Mancha's valiant efforts.

Some of the popular Sovereign Citizen magic spells look like questions, and when you first hear them, you might be excused to think that the spellcaster is actually interested in receiving an answer. After a short while, you can often tell that this is not the case by observing these wizards cast the same question-spells again even after receiving answers.

This example here goes even a bit further, in that the spellcaster does not feign to wait for the answers that he does not care about, and instead recites his magickal formulae, both question-like and otherwise, in a pretty rapid fire.

Interestingly, there are mystical-magical artefacts that have pretty good, although of course not perfect, track record, of working well in many of such cases. In this particular context, invoking a blessed +0 Licence of Driving would, except in the rare case of rolling a Catastrophic Failure, have frightened the road pirates right off. But what kind of skilled magician could artifice such an item?

In any case, the brave adventurer here seems to never have thought of trying such an arcane tactic, and as a result, gets to experience a part of the adventure that many miss out on.

(Trigger warning: #OPCA.)

If Diogenes was a hobbit, he would live in a luxurious barrel-hole like this. Well, perhaps he'd make the doors into the ends of the barrel rather than the sides.
