Siberian serenades sweetheart from a dangling van

Alpha or beta? Romantic, anyway, I guess…

A young man in the Siberian city of Biysk has made up with his girlfriend in spectacular fashion by serenading her from a van – suspending by a crane outside her third-floor bedroom window.

Neighbours on Leningradskaya Street took to the Vkontakte social media site to report a lorry with a crane hoisting the van high into the rainy morning sky, with some hoping the police would “stick it” to the driver when they turned up.

But it gradually dawned that this was a special occasion, as the van was decorated with balloons. And when Yelena Gorbunova opened her window to see what was going on, she came face to face with her ex-sweetheart Alexander bearing flowers, gifts and a card to mark her 29th birthday, while a saxophonist below played her favourite song – the Aerosmith hit Dream On.

She told Russia’s Metro newspaper that Alexander “often surprises me with presents, but never before like this!” She said they split up three weeks earlier after going steady for a year, and the romantic gesture has persuaded her to “make up with him”.


 
Well, good luck to them.

Dream on! 🙂

Millennial Chick Can’t Stop Having Sex with Trump Supporters

Hilarious.

Of course, she could, if she’d stop being a slut, but that’s impossible for millennial progs.

 

Even in a disaster no one wants the vegan food

 
Well, who can blame them? 🙂

 

White polo shirts = white power?

You can’t make this shit up

The white polo shirt: how the alt-right co-opted a modern classic

From its roots in the worlds of polo and tennis, through Ralph Lauren and the rap scene, the white polo shirt is a garment loaded with aspiration. For the white supremacists who marched on Charlottesville, it acted, chillingly, as a uniform

Blah blah blah…

And remember, milk is now a ‘dog whistle’

Imagine how triggered they’d be if white men wore white polo shirts while drinking white milk…

Someone oughta organize a Million White Men White Shirt White Milk march… 😉

 

Consummating the revolution

In the vein of this post, found the following at TLD; no dedicated URL for it, so I’m reposting it in its entirety here:

Let us consummate the revolution! [Guest opinion.] I am a nice-looking, youngish high-school teacher (of English, if you must know), and almost every year at least one underage girl will make it clear to me that she would like to have sex with me. Or would like to do whatever this generation says isn’t sex, but which my father’s generation thought was.

I always turn these sweet offers down. I am not eager to lose my job and never be able to work in any school system again except in Thailand. I am not eager to lose my family. I am not eager to go to prison. I am not eager to spend my golden years with neighbors who are warned that a sex-criminal crouches slavering in their midst. And I am not eager to be questioned every time there’s an AMBER Alert.

But I do wonder … I am forbidden by law to enjoy the company of these girls in ways that would be — well, at least not illegal — in just a few short years. This strikes me as age-discrimination. And not only that, but I am required by law to engage in age-discrimination.

The girls are encouraged by law to engage in age-discrimination, since they may cavort freely with lads their own age who may be just using them for rough exploratory purposes, whereas I am gentle and experienced. They are deemed wise enough and mature enough to choose young partners, and (unbeknownst to their parents) to obtain medications and devices to support their cavorting, as well as (also unbeknownst to their parents) surgeries should the medications or devices fail or be left forgotten at a girlfriend’s home. But the law wishes them to discriminate against me. Solely on the basis of their age, they are deemed not to be wise enough or mature enough to cavort with me.

Surely, this is a situation that cannot long endure in our discrimination-sensitive age. Love equality will surely make its force felt soon. Perhaps someone from the Cato Institute will take the lead. None of us is getting any younger. [Arnold Zeck]  Ω

Spot on, and funny. The laws regarding age of consent are not reason-based but purely emotion-based.
