I’m going to tell a story for those people who think dealing with the IRS is somehow fair or “reasonable” — buckle up.— LibertyJ (@LibertyJen) August 10, 2022
When I was a kid, my dad owned a small cabinet shop. He decided (against better judgement of my mother) to go into partnership with another furniture maker 🧵
The title of the piece tells the whole story: This American Blogger Was Showing an ‘Unseen’ Pakistan. Then She Was Gang Raped.
Unfortunately for women like her, there is no cure for stupidity.
It's not exactly a secret.
She also followed Western female influencers, who posted about travelling in Pakistan with comfort, safety and privileged access. This is despite a 2021 survey showing that 80 percent of Pakistanis think women aren’t safe in their own country.

Nowadays, COVID has a fatality rate of 0.02%. After almost three years, it simply doesn't justify the vaccine passports, mask mandates, and lockdowns. Life goes on.
If you are confused about a tax rule, ask the IRS, and they give you wrong information they can still fine or jail you for listening to them.— Adam Lawson (@cigarsandlegs) August 8, 2022

Yup. Here in Canada, we have got a Tax Free Savings Account in which one can put a maximum of $6,000 a year. If you take money out, then its added to the contribution room. Here's the catch: that amount cannot be deposited back in the calendar year in which the withdrawal was made.
Now, if you login to the Canadian Revenue Agency (CRA) website, then you can find the page where it clearly states your contribution room for the current year. Of course, that number could very well be false if your local bank(s) didn't correctly notify the government about all your contributions and withdrawals over the years. So, if your overcontribute, then you pay heavy fines (1% per month for your extra amount).
In other words, can't trust the government info, can't trust your bank. You have to keep your own meticulous records.

One big reason why governments and pharma pushed for vaxx passports: it's tough to make comparisons when there's no control group. Fortunately, and unfortunately, we can contrast groups of millions and the vaxx is definitely increasing the mortality rate.
In January, triple vaccinated 18 to 39-year-olds were ever so slightly less likely to die than unvaccinated 18 to 39-year-olds, with a mortality rate of 29.8 per 100,000 among the unvaccinated and 28.1 per 100,000 among the triple vaccinated.
But this all changed from February onwards. In February, triple vaccinated 18 to 39-year-olds were 27% more likely to die than unvaccinated 18 to 39-year-olds, with a mortality rate of 26.7 per 100k among the triple vaccinated and 21 per 100k among the unvaccinated.
Things have unfortunately got even worse for the triple vaccinated by May 2022 though. The data shows that triple vaccinated 18 to 39-year-olds were 52% more likely to die than unvaccinated 18 to 39-year-olds in May, with a mortality rate of 21.4 per 100k among the triple vaccinated and 14.1 among the unvaccinated.

I’d be terrified if this were my tax professional. He clearly doesn’t understand anything. Audits are expensive. The IRS doesn’t pay your fees. You’re on the hook.

Yup. You have to prove with mountains of meticulous paperwork that you didn't do anything wrong. If you don't do that in a short amount of time, then the government thugs comes after you. This is an insidious weapon which will be used against political opponents; precious time and money will be wasted. People will have to spend thousands of dollars to prove their innocence. The buffoon who says, "don't cheat on taxes!" doesn't get that the, dragged out, process is the punishment.
I once witnessed pop-can-sized hail in, of all places, Saudi Arabia. It bombarded the balcony of our apartment for a few minutes. It must have done some serious damage to cars and those who were outside. To be in a car when it happens? That's dreadful:
Matt Berry was driving home after golfing Monday evening when cloudy skies quickly turned into a rare storm that dropped hail the size of softballs, caving in his windshield and leaving about 150 dents in his car. “I was getting covered in shards of glass,” the graphic designer said as he recalled the moment he pulled over on a country road to take cover while driving from Innisfail, Alta., to his home in Red Deer, Alta.
“The noise was quite loud,” he said. “It was just crazy. Scary at times, but really it was just shock and awe more than anything.”
The biggest one was nearly 300 grams. That's lethal stuff.
My laptop in the late 90s had data transfer speeds at around 10-15 MB/s. With the latest NVMe SSD drives, one can hit 10-15 GB/s. That level of data throughput would have sounded absolutely ludicrous back when my total hard disk size was 2 GB!
This upcoming ASUS motherboard will have space for four NVMe SSDs without the use of add-in cards. That's going to be nirvana for serious gamers, photographers, and video editors.
New CPUs, motherboards, and GPUs are coming in Q4. It should be an excellent time to upgrade for those who were discouraged by the GPU prices of the past two years.
I couldn't help but laugh when "Max GPU Length" and "Slot Width" showed up as metrics for comparison at the very top! The most important piece of information, memory size, is the fifth item to be mentioned.
It's so confusing when retailers pull these stunts. There are dozens of popular reviewers with years of experience who have mountains of data which easily and thoroughly contradicts what Newegg is displaying. Fake benchmarks are only going to deteriorate its reputation.

China will eventually take over Taiwan. The only question is: will they do it with open military force or without. So far, their war has been cold and calculated. The men of fighting age in Taiwan have lived a pampered and peaceful existence on a tiny island. They don't have the will to fight. China can win by simply making their lives financially uncomfortable. A tiny minority will resist but most will fold.
In a scientific battle of the cheeses, Norwegian researchers said Tuesday that a small daily portion -- 57 grams, or roughly 2 ounces -- of Jarlsberg, which originated in Norway, may help prevent bone thinning from osteopenia and the more severe condition, osteoporosis, without increasing harmful cholesterol.

Warner Brothers should be printing money with the Batman related movies. Just look at how much The Joker made. Unfortunately, retarded wokeness cost them a $100 million.
The DC Comics film “Batgirl” will be completely “shelved” by Warner Bros., a top Hollywood source told The Post. That means it won’t hit theaters or the streaming service HBO Max. Fans will not see it.
The reportedly $70 million movie (the source said the budget was actually more than $100 million), which was doing test screenings for audiences in anticipation of a late 2022 debut, would rank among the most expensive cinematic castoffs ever. Those tests were said to be so poorly received by moviegoers that the studio decided to cut its losses and run, for the sake of the brand’s future. It’s a DC disaster.
The plan goes like this: In the Flash movie, due to time-travel and multiverse-crossing nonsense, the Michael Keaton Batman enters the Justice League Universe and gets to share screen time with the Ben Affleck Batman. But the Ben Affleck Batman dies, making the older, retired Michael Keaton Batman the official, and only, Batman of the Justice League universe.
Being older and retired, his main role will be to serve as a Mr. Miyagi like mentor to his replacement, the race-swapped Batgirl.
Meanwhile, the Flash movie also introduced Supergirl (also race-swapped, if you can believe that!). She will be replacing Superman.
Yup, that's how you make the big bucks: kill Batman and Superman!
The Ace of Spades Decision Desk is ready to make the call: The Flash movie will also be cancelled, decision to be announced within the next two weeks.
Wow. That would be $200 million down the toilet. Let's see.
A starring role in an Emmy-nominated TV show doesn’t pay what it used to. Sydney Sweeney, the breakout star of the HBO hits Euphoria and White Lotus isn’t shy talking about her money troubles. [...]
Sweeney was reportedly paid $25,000 per episode in season one of Euphoria, according to World Celebs. [...]
Sweeney still has to keep up the trappings of stardom. Sure, she was able to buy a $3 million home in the Hollywood Hills, but she told the Hollywood Reporter paying for her team—lawyer, manager, agent, and publicist—costs more than her mortgage.
Is this supposed to be some bizarre technique to make her somewhat relatable? All it does is make her and her overpriced team look mildly retarded.
After a delay of over six months, I was hoping for some competition for the value-level GPUs from nVidia and AMD. Instead, it just makes those two look good.

Apple, Intel, AMD, Nvidia are some of the customers of TSMC. It'll be the grandest prize if China could get it without a serious fight. The toothless posturing of the West against Russia has likely emboldened the Chinese.

Our $5K envelope number was roughly right.— BowTiedBull - Read Pinned Tweet or NGMI (@BowTiedBull) July 30, 2022
The Govt gave you $1,200 and you got $5,915 per year in additional cost.
In effect, the average US household has to pay an extra $6,000 in "taxes" every year. Given the energy situation in Europe and the heat on Taiwan, those taxes will be increasing again.
The rectangular-shaped room is fitted with a shower, a sink, and a toilet. There is one window, and a shelving unit above the latrine. But this room isn’t just any old bathroom. It’s actually an apartment listed for rent in Hamilton’s east-end.
Just steps away from the shower, there is a kitchenette with a handful of cupboards, what appears to be a toaster oven and a mini-fridge — no full kitchen. To the back of the room, there appears to be space for a bed — as long as it is a small one. The whole apartment is 13 square metres (or 140 square feet — think of a 12 foot by 12 foot room).
Prices in my neighborhood in Ontario in 2012 vs. 2022:
- 1-bedroom apartment: $600 --> $1,500
- 2-bedroom apartment: $800 --> $1,700
- 3-bedroom apartment: $1,100 -->$2,200
So, a 140 square feet "apartment" for $550 is a steal!
Thousands of girls were raped in England by Pakis and the police looked away for years. Had those Muslims done something really heinous like posting material online that made somebody FEEL BAD, then they would have been in big trouble.

Yeah, it's difficult to hide those remarks as they were made in front of the public on television. I do wonder about the inner turmoil of the above-average normies who swallowed the BS, got multiple vaxxes, and then got COVID anyway. Significant numbers of them must have learned their lesson as many are simply refusing to take further jabs to save grandma.
From the start of 2020 to now, overall food inflation has been ~50% here in Canada. The following numbers line precisely with my experience.

A lot of people are wondering about the definition of recession. A recession is defined as two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth if a Republican is president. The definition is far more complicated and unknowable if a Democrat is president.— David Sacks (@DavidSacks) July 28, 2022
Watch POLITICO's @morningmoneyben change his definition of "recession" in real-time to align with what the WH and Paul Krugman are demanding everyone now profess.

I remember the 1992 World Cup final. Pakistan scored 249 runs in 50 overs. England managed 227 runs in 49.2 overs. That was the normal scoring rate at the time.
Today, England smashed 234 runs in 20 overs! The hapless South Africans had to chase hard from the very first delivery. They managed 193 runs in 20 overs -- a run rate that's almost double that of the World Cup champions from 30 years ago but it still wasn't enough! Of course, the overall strategy is different because I'm comparing an ODI to a T20. Still, the contrast is quite stunning.
Shopify's CEO said he messed up expansion and laid off 1,000 workers.— Dan Price (@DanPriceSeattle) July 26, 2022

Interesting how when CEOs mess up, they get huge bonuses. When workers just do their job, they get laid offhttps://t.co/H8Ayf1zqgj
That's the harsh reality. Forget paying back the bonus, these soulless CEOs can't even do the basic minimum: resign!

Here’s Dr. Johanna Olson-Kennedy, pediatrician at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, saying how it’s no big deal to cut off the breasts of teenaged girls.— Billboard Chris 🇨🇦🇺🇸 (@BillboardChris) July 25, 2022
“If you want breasts at a later point in your life, you can go and get them!” pic.twitter.com/9wDLuJGzAV
A 20-year-old is not legally allowed to buy booze in the US but pre-teen girls can decide to slash their breasts and boys can destroy their genitals. It's a bizarre juxtaposition but it makes perverse sense when you realize that the logical framework of pedophilia is slowly being built. If kids, as young as 8-years-old, can "ask" adults to mutilate their genitals, then surely they can "ask" adults to use their private parts for other purposes.
New definitions:— Cuffie Shamerelli 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 (@TortelliVinnie) July 24, 2022
Did I miss any?
Consider that last September amid the fourth wave of the virus, seven-in-ten Canadians (70%) said they would support a vaccine passport in their community to require residents to show proof of inoculation to enter larger public spaces; this concept is now supported by one-in-four (25%).
The most disgusting rule was in Quebec where the government mandated vaccine passports for stores like Walmart and Costco in January of 2022. The backlash was immediate and rule lasted less than a month.
Now, an incredible majority is against vaccine passports. I bet the major reason for this drastic shift in opinion is that the definition of "fully vaccinated" keeps changing. Many people went along with the two initial shots plus a booster in the winter. They've likely realized the absurdity of the whole situation as they're told to get the boosters till infinity. In short, they're against the passports because they no longer qualify as fully vaccinated.
Public Health Minister Anutin Charnvirakul tested positive for COVID-19, using a rapid antigen test, upon his return from abroad on Sunday, even though he has already received six doses of vaccine, with the last one being administered on June 13th.
Six doses? Those are rookie numbers. Bring it up to double digits, NOOB!
