The comospolitan miss-mesh just makes me laugh. Karl Marx - Russian; anime - French; the protagonist - a European-looking man; target - Chinese! It will work as the Chinese just love European looking people!

They should study grass more. It always seems greener over the fence.

They are trying to be world leader in everything - already two feet in Africa and other continents, not to mention hacking or getting their scholars in universities here so that they can dole out scholarships to compatriots. Forward thinking, maybe, but not for the well-being of the world.

Mugabe 'lost $1m in stolen briefcase'

Put it simply - the Zimbabweans lost $1m ...

How can these human-forms treat their fellow human beings in such a nasty way! Karma has worked in this case! Now, Mr Crocodile is even worse! I cry for the Zimbabweans!

Thank you for the link.

Leaders often exploit tribal loyalty to advance personal gain, parochial interests, patronage, and cronyism.

This strikes a chord with me.

Oh, no! That's worrying and have you been in touch, Tetters? Tell him to hose down everything and pray! Hope they are all safe!

@johnny canoe , how cold is Alberta?

Deadliest freeze in a generation has 110 million people across U.S. bracing for record-breaking extreme low temperatures - as forecasters advise against speaking outside and warn frostbite could occur in SECONDS

This sounds atrocious

A Floridians Perspective...

I know this historic cold snap is breaking all kinds of records, both in actual temps and windchill temps. However, from my perspective down here in North Florida, this isn't nearly as bad as back in 2010 when the polar vortex made it all the way down to south Florida, where there were tons of reports of how the cold was causing so much havoc and setting records all over Florida. Virtually everything in my yard died; however, in contrast, this year I have not covered a single plant, including some volunteer tomato plants I got growing now.

These are the cold snaps I love -- the ones that stay out of my state;)

Some news stories from back in 2010

A pretty incredible news story from eastern North Carolina. I don't know how this boy survived, but he claims a bear kept him safe...

There's also some videos on the below link

Excerpt:

A 3-year-old boy who was found alive in the woods of eastern North Carolina after he went missing for two days says he spent time with a bear.

Casey Hathaway disappeared last Tuesday. He was last seen playing with two other children in his grandmother's yard in Ernul, North Carolina, according to Craven County Sheriff Chip Hughes.

On Thursday, Casey was found calling for his mother about a quarter of a mile away, about 40- to 50-yards deep into woods. He was soaking wet, cold and tangled in thorn bushes. Hughes said rescuers waded through nearly waist-deep water to get to the toddler.

How did he get there, and how did he stay alive?

"He hung out with a bear for two days," is what his aunt Breanna Hathaway shared in a now-private Facebook post. She didn't say whether the bear was real or imagined.

I think someone had taken him.

A tale of two women giving birth!

Sports Direct worker 'gave birth in a warehouse toilet because she was terrified about missing her shift - cutting her own umbilical cord with a Stanley knife before dumping her child in a BIN'


Meghan 'WILL have her baby at the Lindo Wing just like Kate': Maternity unit cancels staff holiday for April - when the Duchess's first baby is due


The first story is just so sad. The worker was more worried about losing her job than her baby. The 2nd is just so wrong.

Russell Brand banning tickling IS a joke! JAN MOIR on the comedian's promise to punch anybody who violates his daughters' space

This week, the dad demagogue announced he wants tickling children to be outlawed until they’re old enough to consent. He has vowed he will punch anyone who does it to his daughters because it ‘violates their space’.

****
I think he has a point. Perhaps just advise people to tickle babies one or at most twice. To use the word ban seems to be attention seeking.
