Former PETA Employee: PETA Killed Adoptable Puppies and Kittens
March 28, 2017

A new document filed in the ongoing dognapping lawsuit against the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) demonstrates the long-term, systemic pattern of trespassing, pet theft, and killing that occurs as part of PETA’s pet slaughterhouse operation at its Norfolk headquarters.

Lest anybody still think that PETA is telling the truth in their press releases, this is a sworn affidavit from a former PETA employee. They routinely steal pets from people's property and immediately kill them.

This isn't the animal welfare group they claim to be. This isn't even the animal rights group some accuse them of being. This is the act of a bunch of bloodthirsty sociopaths who get off on slaughtering cute animals.

They should be completely shut down and their employees should go to prison for a very long time. There's a special place in Hell for monsters like this.

Mental Floss: Don't "Chai" and "Tea" Both Mean the Same Thing?

Don't "Chai" and "Tea" Both Mean the Same Thing?
by Haley Sweetland Edwards

Almost 5,000 years ago, when folks in China started sipping a yummy, steeped beverage made from dried leaves and buds, different regions had different names for it. Most Chinese languages, including Mandarin and Cantonese, referred to the stuff by a word that is pronounced like “chá.” But other dialects, including Min Nan Chinese, which was spoken around Fujian, Malaysia, Indonesia and Taiwan, referred to it by a word that sounds more like "te."

Fascinating article about the origin of the word "tea". And the fact that "chai" technically has nothing to do with "flavored with milk and Indian spices".

I'm too nerdy for my survey

No comments:
I get small surveys all the time from a variety of apps that I run. Today I got one that read:
What's your favorite bird of prey?
  • Buzzard
  • Caracara
  • Eagle
  • Falcon
  • Hawk
  • Kite
  • Osprey
  • Owl
  • Vulture

I took one look at the question, and before I saw any of the choices, my first thought was "Klingon".
