Washington State Seeks To Go Full Soylent Green

Breitbart reports this grisly story, “Washington State Bill Proposes ‘Composting’ of Human Corpses.”  Eeewww!!  Why do I shudder at thought of taking a drive in the country and stopping for some home grown veggies at “Granny’s Garden Stand” or “Pop-Paw’s Potato Patch”.  Or how about your neighbor’s potted plants…. Is there a reason for the tears?

Washington State is poised to become the first state in the Union to allow “human composting,” or the “accelerated conversion of human remains to soil.”

Senate Bill 5001, titled “Concerning human remains,” would allow for human composting, also known as “recomposition” in Washington, local KIRO-TV reported.

According to the bill, human remains “means the body of a deceased person, includes the body in any stage of decomposition, and includes postreduction human remains.”

Surfing Port-Au-Prince…

May not be the best idea you’ve ever had.  NPR writes, “Port-Au-Prince: A City Of Millions, With No Sewer System.

Port-au-Prince is about the size of Chicago. But it doesn’t have a sewer system. It’s one of the largest cities in the world without one.

That’s a big problem, but never more so than during a time of cholera.

Public health authorities say cholera will stay in the environment for a long time, because Haiti has the worst sanitation in this hemisphere.

So what does happen to all of the products of our human internal combustion system.  Again, from NPR, “Haiti’s ‘Bayakou’: Hauling Away Human Excrement By Hand.

Haiti’s capital city doesn’t have a sewer system. Instead, so-called nightsoil, or human excrement, is largely removed by hand by workers who toil at night under cover of darkness.

Port-au-Prince, Haiti, is one of the largest cities in the world without a central sewage system. Most of the more than 3 million residents use outhouses and rely on workers with some of the worst jobs in the world, hauling away human excrement by hand one bucket at a time. The men are called bayakou, and they work in the dark by candlelight.

**I did a little “Recycling” here because the Toxic Surfer Meme was most excellent.

‘I’ Before ‘E’ Is A Lie, Except, Of Course, In ‘Lie’

Even the FakeNews Washington Post (yeah, a stopped clock….yada, yada, yada) got this one right, “The ‘i before e, except after c’ rule is a giant lie.”

“I before E, except after C.”

The familiar grade school mnemonic is a “supreme, and for many people solitary, spelling rule,” linguist Edward Carney wrote in “A survey of English spelling.” Its primacy has been acknowledged in English grammar textbooks from 1866 (James Stuart Laurie’s “Manual of English Spelling,”) until the present day (Bryan Garner’s “Modern English Usage”).

But like many, many other rules in the English language, it turns out this one is built on a foundation of lies.

Sadiq Khan’s Londonistan – First World ‘Shithole’

You don’t necessarily have to be Haiti or Somalia to earn the title of a “Shithole country”.  If being able to protect one’s citizens from crime, or in the least, bringing the perpetrators to justice, are criteria of “Shitholery”, then England, and, most especially, Sadiq Khan’s Londonistan, are fast descending into the abyss of the shithole country.

The Daily Mail reports, “Fewer than one in 20 street robberies and burglaries are being solved by police…

  • Four per cent of robberies and three per cent of burglaries solved in 2017.
  • Figures show Rushcliffe in Nottinghamshire has lowest rate of solved crime.
  • Meanwhile the most crimes, 26 per cent, were solved in Uttlesford in Essex.
  • Only nine per cent of suspects in all crimes are being caught and punished.

The figures also reveal that only nine per cent of suspects in all crimes are caught and punished – a reduction of more than 50 per cent in the past five years.The worrying statistics will add to concerns about the surge of violent crime in the UK, particularly in London.Scores of violent attacks and muggings have been reported in the capital, with many incidents involving mopeds and knives.
