    WTF? (**NSFW**)

    The thought of an unfiltered wheat beer is slightly nauseating.

    Underwear beer? https://www.mirror.co.uk/news/weird-news/vagina-beer-made-essence-hot-13021963 Vagina beer made with 'essence of hot underwear models' goes on sale for first time Bartosz Staszewski 3-4 minutes A beer made from the 'vaginal lactic acid of hot underwear models' has gone on sale in Poland. The vagina beer has been launched by a brewery known as "The Order of Yoni" from the Polish capital city of Warsaw. Yoni is the Sanskrit word for female genitals. Customers can now buy the beer and taste the 'essence' of good looking models at various pubs after its debut on July 28 in the city of Katowice. The brewery's website colourfully describes the sensations customers might expect from the beer saying: "Imagine the woman of your dreams, your object of desire. Her charm, her sensuality, her passion. The website describes the process of making the beer somewhat ambiguously (Image: CEN/THE ORDER OF YONI) A promotional video shows a model in underwear with her name on a beer bottle (Image: CEN/THE ORDER OF YONI) Read More Aldi bans TOPLESS shoppers over hygiene concerns as people strip-off during sweltering heatwave "Now you can try how she tastes, feel her smell, hear her voice. "Now imagine her giving you a passionate massage and gently whispering anything you'd like to hear. "Now free your fantasies and imagine all of that can be encompassed in a bottle of beer." However, one of the first customers who tasted the beer, Grzegorz Majewski, was not over impressed, saying that at 25 zloty (£5) a beer costs the same as a normal bottle of wine. The beer is made from the 'vaginal lactic acid of hot underwear models' (Image: CEN/THE ORDER OF YONI) He said: "People will try it out of curiosity, but I don't think it will be a regular addition on the table for beer lovers." A promotional video made for the beer shows a large brown bottle with a sticker being peeled back showing a photo of a model in underwear with the name Pauline. The label says: "You are drinking the essence of Pauline," showing a diagram of two people having intercourse and a caption saying: "The best sex position when drinking beer." The label says 'you are drinking the essence of Pauline' (Image: CEN/THE ORDER OF YONI) Read More Top Stories from Mirror Online The founder of the company, Wojtek Mann, described the process in which a gynaecologist took smears from their two models, Paulina and Monika, and had the lactic acid bacteria isolated in a lab. The website describes the process somewhat ambiguously saying: "The secret of the beer lies in her vagina. "Using hi-tech microbiological techniques, we isolate, examine and prepare lactic acid bacteria from the vagina of a unique woman." Amidst concerns about the hygiene implications of the beer, the Order of Yoni reassured consumers the ladies had been totally checked before having the smears and the scientific process they use to isolate the bacteria removes all possible unsavoury elements. Two years ago, Mr Mann tried to convince people online to fund his project, but only managed to raise 1578 euros (£1400) out of a 150,000 euro (£133,000) target. However, the determined entrepreneur managed to raise the funds through a single investor and finally made his vagina beer dream a reality. Man said: "We managed to find an investor who believed in this project and supported us financially."

    The new airline thread

    Honestly, I'd pay the $21 just for the automatic Google calendar updating. I got my first line next month (hired in March), so I signed up. Lite Sabre is amazing, even on reserve. You should sign up for the free month to see if you agree, but when I end up back on reserve next year, I will keep it. The HIRPB interface is great. When you're a line holder, it's almost silly to not have it. I plan on signing up when I change airplanes this winter. Pretty sure I'll be able to put it to good use.

    The new airline thread

    At AA, one of our pilots wrote an app/program called LiteSabre. Based on what preferences you select, the app constantly pings the AA computer to improve your schedule through trades or trip pick-ups. The program also pulls information about flight delays, gates, etc. As a dude sitting reserve, I don't have much use for it for the guys that use it, love it and says it is worth the $20(?) per month cost.

    My wife has occasionally asked me if I still had a job when I have an extended duration of nobody calling. Almost makes me feel unwanted....almost.

    The new airline thread

    Actually, I think everyone after me will win. I've been at AA since 99. Went through the faux bankruptcy in 2003, retirement age change to 65 in 2009, and the "real" bankruptcy in 2011. So there was a decade+ of pay reduction/stagnation and very little seniority improvement. There are guys/girls now with only a couple years in the airline business making the same that I hit only 3-4 years ago. The retirement rate at all airlines is going to create a lot of turnover meaning rapid seniority advancement. No guarantees it will be an awesome career but I think the chances are good.

    $18k-ish gross maybe flying twice a month sitting wide body reserve.
  9. Google TSA missed weapons. It won't improve your opinion of TSA. My favorite are the stories of people that traveled with a weapon, realized it after the trip, and then notified, through an attorney, Congress or TSA of the TSA buffoonery. TSA is kabuki theater.

    I can't check out a book at the library without an ID but progressives think verifiable ID for voting is too much of a burden. Are we denying somebody's right to read?

    No one of consequence is actually controlling the borders. And these people of " No consequence", assuming senators, governors, and mayors are inconsequential, are saying we should do away with the federal agency that exercises what little control over the border we actually enforce. Which leads us back to open borders without actually having to say they want open borders. 'Abolish ICE' goes mainstream as Gillibrand, de Blasio back calls Alex Pappas3 hours ago New York Democratic Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and New York Mayor Bill de Blasio are joining the calls to gut the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency. (AP) The idea was once relegated to the far-left. But the liberal push to abolish the federal agency that enforces federal immigration laws is going mainstream in the Democratic Party, with New York Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand and Mayor Bill de Blasio adding their support to the cause in the last 24 hours. "I believe that [Immigration and Customs Enforcement] has become a deportation force … and that's why I believe you should get rid of it, start over, reimagine it and build something that actually works," Gillibrand said in a CNN interview Thursday night. “We should abolish ICE,” de Blasio said Friday morning on WNYC radio. Gillibrand's endorsement is notable as she's the first sitting senator to back the 'abolish ICE' push -- and is considered a potential 2020 presidential contender. They join numerous other Democratic candidates, House members, liberal commentators and writers who have fought back against the Trump administration's immigration policies by calling to gut ICE -- which identifies, arrests and deports illegal immigrants inside the United States. Left-wing Democrats push to abolish ICE Democratic lawmakers and candidates are increasingly seeking the elimination of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). Here's a look at some of the most prominent figures looking to dissolve the agency. The growing influence behind the push was underscored earlier this week with liberal primary challenger Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's shocking victory over Rep. Joseph Crowley, D-N.Y., a member of party leadership. Ocasio-Cortez emphasized her support for abolishing ICE during the campaign, and even protested outside an ICE center in Texas. DEMS DEMAND ELIMINATION OF ICE AMID IMMIGRATION FUROR “Its extra-judicial nature is baked into the structure of the agency and that is why they are able to get away with black sites at our border, with the separation of children,” the Democrat said in an interview this week. The focus on ICE comes in the wake of the controversy over the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy, which called for all illegal border crossers to be prosecuted. This in turn led to the separation of families due to longstanding detention rules, until President Trump signed an executive order last week ordering families be detained together. With that controversy in the headlines, the abolition of ICE -- which has long been the purview of far-left sections of the Democratic Party base advocating for open borders and no deportations -- has moved from being a slogan on protest placards to an idea being mulled by rumored 2020 hopefuls. "Every country needs reasonable law enforcement on their borders. ICE is not reasonable law enforcement. ICE is broken, it’s divisive and it should be abolished," de Blasio tweeted Friday. New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo also has come under heavy pressure from the left to call for the elimination of ICE, particularly amid a far-left challenge from actress and activist Cynthia Nixon -- who called it a terrorist organization. And Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif., who has been floated as a 2020 Democratic contender, said that the U.S. should consider “starting from scratch” for ICE -- though stopped short of calling to abolish it. In Oregon, Rep. Earl Blumenauer, who voted against the agency’s creation in 2002, doubled down on his opposition in a recent Medium post in which he called for it to be shut down. “We should abolish ICE and start over, focusing on our priorities to protect our families and our borders in a humane and thoughtful fashion,” he said. In January, the idea was endorsed by Brian Fallon, a former top aide to 2016 Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton, and Eric Holder, President Barack Obama’s attorney general. “ICE operates as an unaccountable deportation force,” Fallon tweeted. “Dems running in 2020 should campaign on ending the agency in its current form.” The idea isn’t limited to deep-blue Democratic enclaves. Rep. Mark Pocan, D-Wis., announced Monday that he will introduce a bill to abolish the agency, set up during President George W. Bush’s administration in the wake of 9/11. “I’m introducing legislation that would abolish ICE and crack down on the agency’s blanket directive to target and round up individuals and families,” Pocan said in a statement. “The heartless actions of this abused agency do not represent the values of our nation and the U.S. must develop a more humane immigration system, one that treats every person with dignity and respect.” The shift to the left on immigration has some Republicans and conservatives delighted, thinking that it may move Democrats into unelectable territory. "Based on the last week, Democrats apparently want to campaign on open borders, mass migration, & abolishing ICE," Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., said on Twitter. "Give them points for honesty. Let's vote." Fox News’ Adam Shaw contributed to this report. Alex Pappas is a politics reporter at FoxNews.com. Follow him on Twitter at @AlexPappas.

    How many disenfranchised, oppressed, or impoverished people are there on the planet? 1 billion? 2 billion? How many do we take in? 50? 1 million? 100 Million? All of them? I'm just looking for a starting point in the debate. We need immigrants but not controlling who and how many will not benefit anyone in the long run. Regarding pies, the American taxpayer is currently paying $113 Billion a year to make pies for those that show up to the party without a pie.

    They might pay $9 Billion but what do they cost in local, state, and federal dollars? https://www.fairus.org/sites/default/files/2017-08/USCostStudy_2010.pdf Answer: A hell of a whole lot more at $113 Billion.
