" 'Doomsday Clock' moves closest ever to midnight"

:scratch: Apparently, the Doomsday Clock will never reach midnight
... since there will be no one to move the hands. :roll:

"why you should always leave one shoe in your hotel room safe when travelling"

" 'Worried about forgetting something from your locker? Put your heel or shoe in it and you won't forget it.'
The theory behind this is you will never leave the room without both shoes. And if you bring more than one pair ..."

:scratch: And if you have only one pair, what do you wear until you leave your room? :roll:

Guest to concierge: "Please send up a good shoe."
Hotel concierge: "What or who do you wish to shoo?" :lol:

"Model, 26, stuns fans after revealing how she effortlessly turned old TOTE BAGS
into a stunning two-piece 'safari Barbie' outfit" :o

:bana: Bag lady every man (and some women) can admire
for her stylish economy and revealing youthful creativity.
And some men can equally impress with their tool box,
repurposed to complement such stylin'. :roll:

:idea: Boxes 'n Bags comes to mind for a new outlet. 8)

"Is wearing underwear healthier than going commando?"

"Both going commando and wearing underwear have their pros and cons, and one isn’t necessarily significantly healthier
than the other. The decision is, ultimately, a personal choice, and both can be beneficial if done correctly." :finger:

:scratch: Best guess: The purposes of the two orifices command the appropriate decision -
some may need more breathing room than others (which can sometimes be intolerable
to others in the same room). ;)

:scratch: "Say what?" Keep it to yourself. :roll:

Re: https://www.breitbart.com/law-and-order ... nder-cake/

"Colorado baker Jack Phillips, owner of Masterpiece Cakeshop, has lost an appeal
for refusing to bake a cake celebrating a gender transition."

"We conclude that creating a pink cake with blue frosting is not inherently expressive and any message
or symbolism it provides to an observer would not be attributed to the baker"

:idea: Interesting point of law, suggesting that the bakery had to have first advertised
that certain combinations of colors symbolized gender transition (or whatever).
Perhaps the customer provoked the baker by insisting this was the symbolism.

Ultimately, these cake crises suggest intentional provocations
to support or reject such culinary symbolism. :roll:

"Is the ‘100 envelope challenge’ a smart money move?"

"It works like this: Label 100 envelopes from one to 100. Since this is social media, after all,
said envelopes should look really cool for the videos. On day one, put $1 in envelope 1. On day 2,
put $2 in envelope 2. Continue this way until day 100, when your final savings deposit of $100
will bring you to a grand total of $5,050." :roll

LOL: On Day 1 put the cost of 100 envelopes in a shoe box or whatever,
then add to the box each day (and skip the labeling task). :lol:

OMG: It's easy math to realize that days over 20 start getting expensive
... and the expense increases every day! :o

ICU: Plan B: Identify daily costs that can be stopped,
then add this daily money to the Smart Box. 8)

WTF: What The Final treasure will be could be a surprise
... or heartache if the box is not stored in a safe place. :roll:

"Leakage voice suppression microphone"

LOL1: A voice muzzle for those who talk too much
(or need to explicitly direct their chatter)? :hithere

Caution: Recipient may be wearing a device
that's counterproductive to quality reception. :o

LOL2: Chatterer can record speech for playback
... when the time is right. :finger:

LOL3: AI could detect if recipient is listening! :roll:

LOL4: Alexa, et al., are always listening. :lol:

"Why you should match your lipstick colour to your nipples"

:idea: Fortunately, this fashion statement is long past Shakespeare's
Romeo and Juliet where ”hands do what lips do” ... else
the meaning becomes risqué (a bard's ripplish ?). :roll:

:study: Re: https://theconversation.com/how-evangel ... ism-196727
"How evangelicals moved from supporting environmental stewardship to climate skepticism"

"These are remarkable developments that often employ theological arguments to support environmental activism.
But overshadowed by the continuing nontheological anti-environmental arguments founded in misinformation." :o

:idea: Blame the internet - misinformation/disinformation is being found on all sides of issues, much relating to agendas of its promoters (including governments and Big Business). Now one must sample a broad selection of sources - in various countries - just to sense that the truth is not always so obvious! From the UB perspective, some anti-environmental arguments might have origination in the Spirit of Truth, et al. 8)

BTW: "solar geoengineering" is the correct term - not "chemtrails":

Re: https://www.brighteon.com/ (listen from 21:48 to 48:48)
(search for: "Derrick Broze Interview - Mexico Halts Geoengineering")

:idea: The real message of this video is that dedicated, expert researchers are studying all the evidence about environmental issues
and reporting where they're not silenced (which suggests we be less myopic and not imit our exposure to preferred sources). ;)

"Neanderthals hunted massive elephants that once roamed northern Europe"

"It’s also possible that such a meat bonanza was an opportunity for temporary gatherings of people
from a larger social network ... the occasion could perhaps have served as a marriage market." 8)

:idea: This could have been the beginning of Potluck Suppers, sometimes ending with a marriage proposal.
Men with more meat on their bones probably indicated "good provider" and women with more meat
on their bones probably indicated "already married" (don't ask why). :roll:
