Even if that was somehow part of that GrubHub situation I pointed out a ways back (drivers stealing food, causing the customer to front the bill).. somehow I don't think assaulting Chipotle workers and contaminating product that they then have to re-make was a good response XD

You can see a little bit of this accident (dated April 5th, 2020) in the bike's mirror and then larger at 1:12..

The flip-car clips another car's bumper, seemingly after a van pushes the flip-car (changed lanes into the flip-car?). Looks like the van stops ahead (visible stopped in a turning lane entrance at 2:30)
..the OP/video-recorder doesn't seem to realize that sticking around to give police or the flip-car driver the video may have helped..

"rude awakening"

That video popped up on Imgur ( http://imgur.com/gallery/jsRvuvn ), and peeps were being *really* generous about why he must have crashed.. like this one:

[CondescendingOnlineMan]: "How do you fall asleep at a forklift?"
[doombuggy]: "Working double shifts at multiple low paying jobs so you can not be homeless, you know, living the American dream."

.. like, yeah.. maybe so.. but people still need to know when to pull themselves off the floor to avoid safety issues. Taking a micro-nap on moving machinery maybe saved him.. five seconds? But those cascades of shelves... that's probably days of work depending on how quickly that business can replace pallet racks. We could get into worker's rights, supervision, corporate abuses, and everything, but people still need to be able to self-monitor... blerg.. now I sound like capitalist scum ;p

"US monitoring intelligence that North Korean leader is in grave danger after surgery"
[CNN, Tuesday, April 21st, 2020]
http://www...jong-un-north-korea/index.html
It could just by speculation and hype. This paragraph seems to be the level-headed section:
"South Korea's Presidential Blue House said in a statement provided to reporters that they have nothing to confirm on reports about Kim's health and that "no unusual signs" have been detected inside North Korea."

So, TLDR: Kim just had surgery and has missed some public events due to it. He could be dead/dying, or it could be just normal recovery.

Oo, could be corona complications on top of his surgery, yeah. So many possibilities! Hopefully we'll get some good updates. I'm pretty sure the system implodes without Kim. Hard-line generals don't really have the cult of personality, and Kim's children seem to be pretty young (estimated at 3 children who may all be less than 8 years old).

"figure this one out"

I got 2 minutes in before I had to leave the video to see if the description helped at all... no clue D:

"maybe defending territory w/ large sticks is the new norm"

Maybe so? People getting vigilante about travelers from outside the neighborhood to stop viral spread?

An informed-sounding comment refers to these longer videos with Romanian text ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eiSFTlCdDzE and http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=33TuxHw8E6s ) and suggests that it was Romanian gypsies having a dispute between four or more families this recent Orthodox Easter, with the police sort of mediating while awaiting backup. They suggested that the person in the van had gone to get it specifically for the fight. Someone else ("captain burger"; Russian flag in his name) made this partial translation:
"0.06 Gipsy female to the cop: stop filming, they are beat us , and kill us. You are the cops.
Cop: Go home
the car is comming. A lot of screams
0.40 the cop ask the other one who was relaxing next to the car: yo, we shoot or not shoot? We shoot?
1.22 the cop almost hit by rock : bah, you are crazy!
1.35 the lady in red shirt smacking her tits : they kill him (on repeat with black metal voice till the end of the video)
Then they start to argue with the cops:
Is the second time when this is happening
the other ones are controling everything
why you just watching and not stop them.... <Some questions have sense>"

Another person ("mbadea") translated this:
"muthafucka I will kill all your relatives, the other said you are muthafucka I will kill you all, the policeman asked the other policeman should we shoot them all, the other said no we don't have enough bullets"

..soo... kind of a whole thing I guess ;p

Oh cool! I was there! I was selling Brain Force Plus to keep the 5G waves from affecting the REAL patriots!!
lol.. ;D

Looks like another packed group about to reignite coronavirus cases. I wonder how they protect themselves from the cognitive dissonance if/when they themselves become infected... if someone *else* gets infected, that's not too difficult, but if *they* have the symptoms.. do they just pretend that the government infected them with a false virus to trick them into believing it's real and that they must keep faith to resist this false truth? (Kind of like that argument that dinosaur bones were planted by Satan to test true believers?) And do they just pretend that all the videos of overrun hospitals were just crisis actors?

Actually.. yup.. I looked for hospital videos, and one of the top comments on this video claims that because the main doctor runs crisis drills that she must be a crisis actor faking her testimony:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bE68xVXf8Kw
"0:26 This is Dr. Coleen Smith. She is in charge of emergency training simulations. The type of drills used for false flag events. Just Google her and look at her job description."

You heard that right: if you do training at your job, then when the event for which you trained occurs, it's not real.. because you trained for it....... it's just a false flag event. Yeah. It's interesting that when you follow the rabbit hole to the conspiracy videos, the spelling and grammar errors in the comments/descriptions absolutely explode (e.g., "It is all a HOACKS people" — took the time to all-caps but not spell check? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBbAiyFvCT0 ). Almost like there's a correlation between education and susceptibility to falsehoods.. Hmm.. ;D

Fitting "Karen" title there :D
The world may be at maximum anti-Karen language right now ;)

That biker was doing well for a bit.. I wonder if it was a mechanical issue at the end (before the cop hit).. he just went in a straight line instead of doing more off-road dodging..

That reminds me! I can't remember if I posted about it when it happened, but a few years ago I was out driving (passenger) with a friend during daylight hours and saw a white "gangsta" type out riding a BMX bike at full speed down a sidewalk (right side of the road, oncoming; blocked by a chain link fence on his left). A police SUV was in pursuit (going the wrong way? I can't remember for sure, but there were two lanes so there was space for it), and the biker turned down a residential street, tried to cut into a driveway on the right side of the road, and the SUV did a wheel jerk and launched the rider, who took off running between houses. We kept driving so I didn't see if they made the arrest or anything, but I'd like to think that the rider jumped enough fences that he got away with whatever awful crime necessitated that kind of police response ;D

There used to be a safety lock and everything, but he figured out how to get past that pretty quickly, so now we let him do what he wants with it just to give ourselves a break.

This could make you cry (not meme-style "I cry every time" fake crying), so be careful...

Usually, I would just down-vote people on Imgur for using their very personal cancer diagnoses to post selfies and be vain (and people really do this; they get minor (great prognosis) cancers and try to make themselves look heroic for social media stories instead of being real humans), but that was not this... Not really any vanity involved once in context. There was no long-winded write-up looking for sympathy (cynical me: "Yet?"); it was just pictures with small captions..

Original poster "mechaschmeck" refers to "[his] late wife" in another post (so, be aware moving further), titles this post "Our life", and then posts pictures of them together out and about, seemingly growing up together (year's old photos), getting married, then pictures of her deteriorating health in hospital (these seem to start around December 2019)...

A security guard at a Family Dollar store in Flint, Michigan, was shot and killed after telling a customer to wear a state-mandated face mask, police said.

Calvin Munerlyn, 43, died at a local hospital after he was shot in the head Friday, said Michigan State Police Lt. David Kaiser.
The shooter and a second suspect remain at large, Kaiser told CNN on Monday.

Witnesses at the store told police that Munerlyn got into a verbal altercation with a woman because she was not wearing a mask, said Genesee County prosecutor David Leyton. Surveillance video confirms the incident, Leyton said.

Under an executive order from Michigan Gov. Gretchen Whitmer, all retail employees and customers have to wear a mask.

Footage also shows that immediately after the altercation, the woman left in an SUV.

But about 20 minutes later, the SUV returned.
Two men entered the store and one of them yelled at Munerlyn about disrespecting his wife, Leyton said. The other man then shot the security guard.

lulz. Looking at the video again in full screen.. it's much more yellow than green, yeah :D .. the lighting conditions may have given me some false greens in the frames I picked when deciding its color ;)

there was another car of similar color in a different video where someone in comments had said green so the argument exists :p

=============

An Ohio lawmaker says he refuses to wear a mask to protect himself amid the coronavirus pandemic because he believes that faces are the “likeness of God.”

Republican state Rep. Nino Vitale argued Monday against Gov. Mike DeWine’s recommendation to wear face coverings in public on religious grounds.

“This is the greatest nation on earth founded on Judeo-Christian Principles,” Vitale said in a Facebook video. “One of those principles is that we are all created in the image and likeness of God. That image is seen the most by our face. I will not wear a mask.”

He continued that it was important to him to be able to see others’ faces without a mask obscuring them.

“When we think of image, do we think of a chest or our legs or our arms? We think of a face,” Vitale said. “That’s the image of God right there, and I want to see it in my brothers and sisters.”

Wow... Even in religious contexts.. that makes no sense. First, typical modern interpretations of the "image of God" would not be physicality but spirit — being like "God" in the sense that people have virtues above those of mere animals and can thus bring "God's" vision to life on Earth (i.e., one must behave in "godly"/"goodly" ways to embody the "image [(spirit)] of God"). Second, even if people were made in the "image of God" in a *physical* sense (i.e., humanoid), then his argument was that he thinks that people should show their faces for his own personal, iconolatry (icon worship) pleasures ("I want to see it"). So he wants to see peoples' faces more than he wants people to be in *deed* "godly"/"goodly"... and of course, in this case, the good deed would be to cover your face to avoid spreading a deadly virus... so... even within his own religion he has misguided reasoning.

Three workers at an Oklahoma City McDonald's were injured Wednesday by gunfire and a scuffle that appeared to have started because the restaurant's dining area was closed for social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, police said.

Two of three were injured by gunfire and the third was hurt in a scuffle, said Lt. Michelle Henderson of the Oklahoma City Police Department.

The victims, two females and a male -- two of them 17 -- were hospitalized and in non-life-threatening condition, she said. Two customers, a man and a woman, were in custody.

"They were asked to leave, and they refused and produced a gun," Henderson said. The dining area "was closed because of the virus."

Hospitals have gone "All PPE all the time" mode... necessary, of course, but also a sign that viral apocalypse has gotten for real real :/

Was it a routine appointment for you?
Right now the public health word seems to be "personal evaluation" to decide which appointments to make. That's not sustainable beyond a few months. Lots of articles pointing out that that'll cause a wave of normally treatable illnesses becoming serious..

i'm in a study for a skin gel to treat basal cell carcinoma... they cancelled the last appt but the 3-month check is more significant

they didn't wear full battle gear for anything but the blood draw so i guess just some policy specific to blood tests (& research staff might have different regulations in general)

update to a story from awhile ago:


HARLAN, Iowa (AP) — A Kansas man who sought legal permission in Iowa to engage in a sword fight with his ex-wife is not insane but merely angry over their child custody arrangement, according to a psychological evaluation.

David Ostrom, of Paola, Kansas, asked in a Jan. 3 court filing to be allowed to fight his former wife, Bridgette Ostrom, of Harlan, Iowa, and her attorney, Matthew Hudson, so that he can “rend their souls” from their bodies. The Ostroms have been embroiled in disputes over custody and visitation issues, and property tax payments.

An Iowa judge responded by temporarily suspending David Ostrom’s child visitation and ordering the evaluation. It found he is not troubled, but has “adjustment disorder with mixed emotional features,” Ostrom told the Des Moines Register.

“It essentially says I’m not crazy, I just don’t like being denied access to my children,” he said.

Ostrom has asked the court to order psychological evaluations of his ex-wife and her attorney, according to a motion he filed Friday. Ostrom, who is representing himself in court, also filed a second motion Friday asking for parenting time with his children and that he be reimbursed $4,765 in legal fees and $2,200 for the psychological evaluation. The motion also seeks $255,000 for emotional damages.

It's good that his mental health status has been cleared up so that he can just be comically vindictive without that cloud hanging over him ;D

"i'm in a study for a skin gel to treat basal cell carcinoma..."

Oh, neat! .. though hopefully nothing too serious for you..

"so i guess just some policy specific to blood tests (& research staff might have different regulations in general)"

Yeah.. between different hospitals and different protocols, could be difficult to tell much about the PPE.. Maybe one nurse was just designated the ultra-PPE person and was doing all the blood work that day ;)

A link in the comments points to a 2018 article ( http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-england-berkshire-43006191 ).
Summary: incompetent driver makes incompetence-related mistake (claims he put foot on wrong pedal). Lost his job and was "jailed for eight months ... ordered to carry out 250 hours unpaid work and undergo a rehabilitation activity requirement for five days." Pedestrian "suffered two fractures to his shoulder and ribs, as well as some internal bruising."

That was fun. That reminds me of surgeon simulator, but much more to do in this one.

mostly demonstrates his craziness in building all that stuff (the world starts w/ nothing man-made)

if that link works as intended his other videos for that game should be on the right if you want more (the one w/ 'nuclear waste' in title comes after the one i linked if you want to see him fill the world w/ barrels of nuclear waste going all over)

ok, last one for awhile (unless i hit an exceptionably notable one)...

this game has a weird concept: digging up tanks & restoring them then selling them... is that a thing in Europe? anyway has some good moments... for example, 3:55-5:15 a good glitching jeep story

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eKi8sQdInuQ

Really addicting videos.. makes me wonder if this was how people got addicted to PewDiePie ;)

His "Corma" video was good too ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3uwFrrvgI64 ), though I'll spoil the end by saying that the game basically has no purpose yet; just a small map without much going on. He made the appropriate comparison to the "Lost" TV show (Dharma Initiative; weird island mysteries). The game creator(s) may have something interesting planned, but given the bad spelling in item descriptions ("Furance" instead of "Furnace").. likely not ;p
