Daily Mail: Is it time to drop the cannibalism taboo? Psychologists say eating members of the same species is natural and we could 'adapt to human flesh if need be'
Spoiler (mouse over to view)
And then one day, for no reason at all, people voted Hitler into power.

Seeing this is what made me frown today. You don´t link to the primary source which has the title "Cannibalism is common in the animal kingdom – here’s why for humans it’s the ultimate taboo" while linking to a tabloid that sensationalizes the reports. Yet BOTH come to the same conclusion:

"For now, we’re as happy as you are to continue accepting the “wisdom of repugnance”: human flesh, despite its biochemical similarities to that of other mammals, shall remain firmly off limits."

Funny how that is buried... And we even get the usual Nazi "joke" that has no understanding of history. The Treaty of Versailles from 1919, the failed Weimar Republic of the 1920s and the worldwide economic collapse of the late 1920s and early 30s put Hitler into power. In conclusion: Someone here doesn´t know how to read, how to troll, how to use sources and even failed to grasp the most important event of the 20th century. Ohh wee.

I take it back. I should have used the made me smile thread instead.

So, you don't find it disgusting that they're even discussing the idea? Or that, while going "Good thing this isn't something we have to consider...yet", they're turning around and going "but you're still going to be eating insects"?

EDIT: By the way, this is beyond just tabloid talk.

I just realized that Ivanka Trump is old enough to run for president. She will do it 2024. Mark my words. The first female president may be a Trump!?!

Covid-19 is what it is but the STONKS market is looking worrisome. It will only tank worse... and soon too. Can´t wait for that death spiral and we can´t have another great depression after only 12 years. Here is what Germany did in 1923 to get out of the big one:

The at first VERY successful move also tried to combat rising fascism. About that... read on. The irony hurts.

You're seriously holding up the Wiemar Republic as an example of what to do?

Of course the market is going to tank, no question about it, because just about everything from electronics to pharmaceuticals to clothing is produced in China. That's what happens when NONE of your industries are produced domestically. The only thing that's going to fix it is to rely less on importing and more on domestication. However, even then, that's going to take a good long, hard year at best as just about everything in the world is shutting down, with politicians everywhere telling people to adopt the NEET lifestyle, and companies having to build and/or restart factories in whatever country they're located in.

Continuing the conversation about difficult bosses... We've been scheduled to move to a new office for two months now (bad time to do it, I know), and I told my boss last month that he had to be the one to book the moving truck, etc. and he agreed. Lo and behold, we're in the last week of our lease, and my boss apparently completely forgot we even had this conversation!! (Multiple times!! I texted him two weeks ago to remind him!!) At least I extracted a promise from him today that he's absolutely, definitely going to rent a truck this week.

Also ran myself ragged today moving boxes of documents over. :<

Just read on the news that in USA there are people as stupid as Trump and they actually did inject themselves with disinfection solution...like... I shouldn't be surprised 'cuz they're the ones who elected that moron, but still...just how stupid would they have to be to actually do it?
As if there aren't already enough people dying due to Covid19's complications, now the poor hospitals' staff have to deal with these morons on top of it, like they don't already have their hands full (-_-)

The US president thanked, and I quote, his "Keyboard Warriors" today. What is even happing in 2020 anymore!?! I think we are done. Deus Ex Machina needs to unplug the Matrix.
This cycle failed! It doesn´t mean what he thinks it does. Trump called his own supports, well: https://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=Keyboard% 20Warrior

PS: Those Matrix sequels and canon game spin-offs are WILD. I´ll watch Matrix 4 (to 6?) week one but... good luck.
