Boeing bid farewell to an icon on Tuesday, delivering its final 747 jumbo jet as thousands of workers who helped build the planes over the past 55 years looked on.
Since its first flight in 1969, the giant yet graceful 747 has served as a cargo plane, a commercial aircraft capable of carrying nearly 500 passengers, a transport for NASA's space shuttles, and the Air Force One presidential aircraft. It revolutionized travel, connecting international cities that had never before had direct routes and helping democratize passenger flight.
A local TikTokker was left angry today after she was unable to achieve her goal of drawing attention from men at the gym, who she could then berate on camera and shame publicly on social media.
"These guys are being such jerks," said avid fitness enthusiast and aspiring social media influencer Priscilla Balos. "I need them to give me attention that I don't want so I can then rip them a new one and post the video online about how they're totally creeping on me with all this attention I don't want that they're not giving me like I need them to. Ugh!"
A taxpayer-funded Canadian theater organization has sparked outrage after announcing an event that will only allow “Black-identifying audiences” to attend.
“If someone self-identifies as a non-Black person and demands to enter the room, a member of our staff will be present to chat with this person,” the Theatre Pass says on its website.
The chat would certainly be amusing. Blacks should do this more often. They can have their own supermarkets, restaurants, cinemas, schools, districts, cities, etc. They have got my full support!

Clown World is devoted to inversion. When the “female figure skater” is neither female nor a figure skater, you know Clown World is involved.
True. This reminds me of Miss Greater Derry from last year. Here's some brief info:
The Miss Greater Derry Scholarship Program, set up by the Miss America Organisation, welcomes contestants between the ages of 17 and 24 who are judged on their 'their achievements in scholastic, aptitude, talent, character, community service and poise', according to their website.
So, one would think that the winner would be a local, beautiful woman, right? The winner was Brían Nguyen. Not local, not beautiful, and, definitely, not a woman.
Miss Greater Derry is a fat Asian man! It's a Clown World trifecta!

Just checked out a studio apartment here in Mexico in an ideal neighborhood.— My Latin Life 🌴 (@MyLatinLife) January 26, 2023
They’re asking 3,000 pesos + 500 peso deposit.
That’s $150 a month and a $25 deposit. Includes water.
Just checked rent for a one bedroom apartment in my building. $1,550 a month. You'll have to fill out an application and fulfill the requirements to have the privilege of renting. When I applied, they wanted to see a minimum five-year job history in Canada or a guarantor. So, if you don't have rich parents or a stable income stream of five years, then tough.
Not content with making Elon Musk leave, the state of California is coming after all billionaires:
California lawmakers appear intent on making the Eagles song Hotel California a reality … at least when it comes to taxes for those who try to flee the state. At the Hotel California, “you can check-out any time you like, but you can never leave!” With soaring costs and a massive $24 billion deficit, the state is also facing an exodus of people leaving the state. The solution? Convert the state into a tax Venus flytrap: not only impose a wealth tax on those caught in the state but tax those who try to leave.
That's the nature of taxation. Market it as ONLY for the greedy, asshole, super rich and then in due time decrease the floor.
The law has a cynical bait-and-switch provision. The billionaire tax is just meant for the initial packaging and passage. It can therefore be sold as a “billionaire’s tax.” However, in two years, the threshold drops to a worldwide net worth exceeding $50 million.
This shouldn't be a surprise to anyone. The same thing happened with the income tax over a hundred years ago. The wealth tax will soon apply to average people with a "big" house that retails for over a million. A meagre, and of course "totally reasonable", 2% wealth tax on that property would mean an extra $20,000+ in taxes every year for the average doctor, engineer, professor, etc.
After revelations that former Presidents and Vice Presidents Joe Biden, Donald Trump, and even Mike Pence had violated federal law by keeping classified documents in their homes, Hillary Clinton took the opportunity to brag that she had kept no classified documents from her time serving as President of the United States.

Reminds me of a conversation with my puzzled barber many years ago.
"I think you're a smart guy. So, I don't get it. Why don't you have a house?"
I looked at the Boomer Barber with mild amusement and asked, "What was the price of your house when you bought it?"
"Do you remember your annual income at the time?"
"Hmm, about $20,000."
"What was your mortgage payment?"
"Oh, my dad gave me a gift and I borrowed money from a relative."
"How long did it take to pay off this loan?"
"About two years."
So, sometime, in the 1970s, a barber in Canada, with zero college degrees and a single income, and a family loan, bought a house and had it all paid off in two years.
During that haircut, my post-university-degree income was about $50,000 and the average price of a house was close to $1,000,000. Alas, no monetary gift from dad or a family loan. Forget two, it's not even possible in twenty years! It's so bizarre when these people can't see or recognize this basic math.

Police have identified a man killed in an alleged "swarming" attack by eight teenage girls in Toronto last month as Ken Lee. Lee, 59, was pronounced dead in hospital after he was allegedly beaten and stabbed by the group of girls outside a downtown shelter in the early morning hours of Dec. 18, 2022.
[...]A friend of Lee's who saw his alleged attack previously told CBC Toronto the girls had tried to take a liquor bottle from her and Lee had tried to stop them. The lead detective on the case later confirmed that police believe there was an attempted theft — "likely of a liquor bottle" — during the initial phase of the deadly encounter.
The teenage murderers are between 13 and 16 years old. No information about race is provided which means we know.
Male M&M's everywhere rejoiced after the announcement by Mars, Inc. that the female M&M's are getting their own bag. The male M&M's hope this change will finally give them some much sought-after peace and quiet.
According to sources, the red, yellow, blue, and orange M&M's are hoping this means they can finally get a little rest and relaxation, lounge around all day, and just hang out with the bros without being nagged to death.

Same in Canada. The average mortgage payment is now greater than the average income in Toronto.
There was a couple who wrote about how their bank refused to loan them money for a house because their combined income was too low. They make $200,000. That's US$150,000. People used to say that both people in a household need to work because prices are so high. We've reached the point where both people do work and make more money than 98% of households in their province and they still can't get a loan for a house!
