Re: https://www.cnn.com/2022/07/31/business ... index.html

"Fancy Feast is expanding into feline-inspired human cuisine, with a New York City Italian restaurant
designed to celebrate the company's new line. Gatto Bianco, which means 'white cat,' is described
as an 'Italian-style trattoria,' and will be open for dinner reservations on August 11-12 only"

"For those who can't get their paws on a reservation, company will post recipes on its website."

:idea: But skipping the recipes and serving the real cat food
to your guests would be an unforgivable faux paw. :roll:

"Australia fines air traveler nearly $2,000 for carrying undeclared McMuffins" :o

"$2,664 'infringement notice' — or around $1,874 in American dollars — for 'failing to declare
potential high biosecurity risk items and providing a false and misleading document'."

:idea: For contrast, some health food experts insinuate that just eating "fast food" is punishment enough. :roll:

There really is no excuse for carrying food items into Australia. They make it very clear that this is a no go and they give you plenty of opportunities to declare it and get rid of it before it is discovered and becomes a big fine. What was this person thinking? I mean come on...Australia does have McDonalds and Egg McMuffins and something even better...Aussie pies :bana: :bana: :bana:

Re: https://www.nfcr.org/blog/make-a-will-month/
"August is National Make-a-Will Month!"

:scratch: Perhaps similar to "Make-a-Wish" ...
considering how legal intervention sometimes redirects. :roll:

Re: https://www.insider.com/demi-lovato-usi ... hem-2022-8

"Demi Lovato says she has 'adopted the pronouns of she/her again':
'I've been feeling more feminine' "

:idea: Complements fashion where clothes may be worn again after storage for several years
... especially when they fit once more. :roll

:scratch: Does this suggest "Coming Out" or "Going Back" party :?:
"Call me whatever!" may be appropriate for the invitations
to guests who struggled to remember the pronouns. :roll:

As for the people who were reprimanded (or worse)
for not using the correct pronouns ... ? :?

Re: https://www.bnnbloomberg.ca/crypto-take ... -1.1800707
"Crypto Takes a Fresh Hit as Thousands of Solana Wallets Hacked" :o

"Crykey" (sounds like "Crikey") would be a good name for a crypto!
(both "Crykey!" and "Crikey!" would describe it if lost or stolen) :roll:

Re: https://www.vice.com/en/article/akeemk/ ... -telescope

"Images from the $10 billion James Webb Space Telescope, a collaboration between NASA and Canada and Europe’s space agencies, went viral throughout July as its first images were released to the public. But a few days later, Klein revealed that the photo he tweeted was not the work of the world’s most powerful space telescope, as he had in fact tweeted a slice of chorizo sausage." :shock:

:hithere Today's internet, bellowing barnyard of silly sausage capers,
disinformation, misinformation, TikTokTumult, whatever! :roll:

... and will be independent/unbiased unlike search engines. :finger:

Re: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/articl ... ffair.html
"Charismatic pastor, 46, of trendy Miami church is fired after having affairs with THREE worshippers" :o

:scratch: These stories about charismatic preachers going astray
hint that charisma is not the best evidence of a spiritual leader
(or even political leader, military leader, etc.) :!:

In other words, if we're responding to charisma,
the influence is not necessarily "spiritual". ;)

Re: https://www.usatoday.com/
"(For Subscribers) Demi Lovato changed her pronouns again." :o

"Experts say that Lovato changing her pronouns isn't that uncommon
and should remind us that gender identity is fluid and can change over time." ;)

:idea: Apparently, we'll need occasional confirmation that we're using correct pronouns.
Cartoons suggest a way with their thought bubbles, but color coding on gender fluids
(like fashion accessories) would be easier public communication. :finger:

Interestingly, the planned microchip under the skin (in hand?)
for personal identification in the future could broadcast
gender identity to an inquirer's device. 8)

:!: Include "human" since robots will be ubiquitous
... and their gender identity may be important. :hithere


:lol: Brave New World humor ...

"More momentous than a child's first words,
parents now await a child's first gender identification :roll
... and friends await their final gender identification
(considering demand for correct pronoun usage)." :roll:
