Koch Foods hires undocumented workers, mistreats them, loses a lawsuit about it, and has ICE deport them to avoid paying the damages

quote [ Hispanic workers at the company’s Morton, Mississippi, chicken processing plant were subjected to touching and sexually suggestive comments, were hit, were charged money for “normal everyday work activities” and faced retaliation after complaining, EEOC alleged.

After immigration authorities rounded up hundreds of workers in a massive sweep at seven Mississippi food processing plants, friends and family members are desperately searching for answers. ]

I guess this is hitting the reset button? I wonder if this just means they start over hiring new undocumented workers with the plan to exploit them. Maybe shuffle shuffle business around so the decree only applies to one model location while they continue business as usual as a tenuously connected subsidiary under a different name.

Someone felt we needed black rag dolls to beat up to relieve our stress

quote [ In the instructions, buyers are told to take the black rag dolls — which come with red, green, black and yellow hair made of yarn, styled in dreadlocks — and “find a wall to slam” them against. ]

I guess it was intended for the southern market and just misrouted.

The next Tide Pods challenge is overdosing on Imodium

quote [ Some addicts take huge doses of loperamide; sold under the brand name Imodium A-D; to try to ease withdrawal ]

It actually can't cross the blood brain barrier, but if you take a few hundred pills it'll fight the withdrawal symptoms apparently. Of course you might never poop again.

The New "Free Speech"

quote [ She flipped off President Trump — and got fired from her government contracting job

But Briskman wasn’t wearing anything that connected her to the company when she was on her ride, nor is there anything on her personal social-media accounts — where she wordlessly posted the photo without identifying herself — to link her to the firm. ]

Well, as long as it's not the government censoring my speech or denying my access to health care based on what I say, then I guess I have no right to complain…

Alabama may allow church to form own police force

quote [ The ACLU is warning Alabama lawmakers a proposed police force for a mega-church could be unconstitutional. ]

What they claim to want is a police department in their immediate location. The way they're going about it is to get legal permission to set up their own police force.

Making A Murderer

quote [ Please, dont binge-watch Making a Murderer. Out of necessity I powered through all ten episodes, and spent the rest of my night staring out a window at the rain. ]

Want to see how the American police system works?

Real life Minecraft. Live like a Lego person.

Color For The Color Blind

quote [ The revolutionary EnChroma Cx Lens fundamentally boosts color vision, bringing color to the color blind. What are the implications? It ranges from overcoming activity, task and learning obstacles, to getting access to new and breathtaking sensory experiences. ]

No more blowing through flashing yellow lights for me!
