Ann Widdecombe Believes the #MeToo Movement Is “Trivial Whinging”…

01) Ann Widdecombe Believes the #MeToo Movement Is “Trivial Whinging”

Thanks to feinmann0!

“Ann Widdecombe, a former UK politician, joins This Morning to give her views on the #MeToo movement and suggests that women ‘want to be victimised’. Holly Willoughby and Phillip Schofield debate her points, saying that #MeToo has given women a voice and has brought to light serious and real issues. However, Ann Widdecombe believes the #MeToo movement Is “Trivial Whinging”.

A wonderfully refreshing take on the aggressive social cancer that the #MeToo movement has become.”

Jim Bakker Bucket Taste Test…

01) Jim Bakker Bucket Taste Test


“Does apocalypse pizza taste as gross as the bucket it comes in looks? Find out!”


We Tried A Televangelist’s Apocalypse Food:

“It has a shelf life of 10 years.”

I have a food bucket in the other room…It’s not Jim Bakker’s, but I did do a little experiment with “emergency food” a few years back…a “thirty day supply”…I forget the company, but I purchased one bucket…

…Allegedly…they crunched the numbers down to something like $1.50 [or maybe it was 33 cents, I don’t remember] a serving…if I recall correctly…I started wondering, if I could actually live off of this stuff…

I mostly knew what I was walking into…so, I don’t complain about there being too many potato entries…and there was zero meat [you could buy freeze dried meat packs, separate]…So, the stews were all vegetables, with chicken or beef flavored broth…You can add meat, if you want…and they were fine…nothing to scream about…edible…I actually fixed them in the microwave oven.

Of course…nothing is exactly “easy”, where it comes to portioning…it’s one massive bag of mix…They save money, by packaging this way…

If I could have actually survived on this for thirty days [3 meals a day]…at 150 dollars, this would have been a boon to my grocery expenses…

…But…this just didn’t seem like a good eating solution, to me.

…I should probably break out the opened [and resealed] packages…and make sure they’re still okay.

My experiences with “survival food” haven’t been all that impressive.

Linux Code of Conduct – The Other Shoe Has Dropped…

01) Linux Code of Conduct – The Other Shoe Has Dropped


“With Linus Torvalds stepping down as leader of the Kernel Dev Team and a new code of conduct being rushed in to replace the old code of conflict, some kind of resistance was inevitable from some members of the Kernel team.

One possible action for developers who are removed from the team is to use the power to rescind copyright of the code they have contributed to the Linux kernel. This has been referred to as the nuclear option. The question is, will it be used?

Linux developers threaten to pull “kill switch”

UPDATE: ESR: “threat has teeth.” Most of the internet could be affected as some Linux devs threaten to rescind code in response to CoC controversy.
