That's a lot of work, and I'm kinda lazy.

This was on CNN this morning, it was a strange story, there wasn't any real explanation of why they turned around (or how it happened).

But I've had the scanner do real things, like give me a new seat or tell them that they need to scan my passport. How does it not say, "Wrong airline"?

It doesn't not do that. That's why I don't believe the story you were told.

Regarding Milo Yiannapolous's lawsuit against Simon & Schuster:





The editor maintains composure at first, with comments like "Let's leave 'cuck' out of it here," but it descends into notes like "NO. IT. HAS. NOT." and "DELETE UGH"

Did you read the page on his cosmetics routine, it was gloriously terrible, and am I really expected to believe he lost 50 lbs recently? Where was he hiding it? Did I miss a fat Milo phase?

It absolutely does.

Depending on the starting date range you use, "Gen Z men" are still in primary school.
