What a twisted and hair-raising concept! Out of all dystopian thrillers out there, Battle Royale is something extra. Set in a nearby future, the Japanese government has had enough of the uncivilized manners of the younger generation and has taken drastic measurements to stop the chaos. The “BR Act” means that they will once a […]

  To lose, one must have. Having, strange to assess, Is a variation of possess And, oddly, offers distress. It’s well known that to own Is to be owned, be possessed.   To be possessed is an ancient way to speak Of insanity, demonized, disguised these days As wealth, an unhealthy disease that unceasingly, Increasingly […]

The insane runner

This post has been in the works for several weeks now, I think I finally figured out what I want to say.  A few weeks ago, I started feeling like I was losing my motivation to exercise. For many, this is a fairly common problem – for me it is not.  Sometimes in the past […]

Not sure exactly HOW my Ex found out but sure enough a few weeks after me and my Boyfriend started dating he found out …. it was. .. explosive to say the least….even though he was still out of state at the time. Of course I received a new name: Jezzabel, and I was accused […]

As The World Ends

We have often called online liberals the party of hate, death and perpetual outrage, because we consistently witness liberals forming online mobs to attack conservative users, organizing boycotts for any company that doesn’t comply with their political and ideological demands, and demand unrestricted abortion rights up until the moment of birth, but further research indicates […]

Hamburg is weird. A signature beer with equal parts of lemonade, an enormous model train world, and a mile-long red light district. Oh yeah, I am actually here for new years!

The Irish overwhelmingly voted in favor of changing the country’s archaic divorce laws, which currently require a four-year waiting period. More than 82% of voters supported changing the constitution to lower the waiting time, and also to recognize foreign divorces. It was the largest margin of victory for a referendum since the Good Friday Agreement in 1998, which 95% of voters backed. The government said it would introduce legislation to change the laws and has previously mentioned a two-year waiting time instead. The referendum comes as part of a broader push to liberalize Ireland’s social policies. Divorce was only legalized in 1995 and by a razor-thin margin (50.2% to 49.7%). But change, when it comes, can come quickly: In 2015, 62% of voters endorsed legalizing same-sex marriage, and last year, 66%  backed repealing Ireland’s abortion ban. The results of the latest divorce referendum were so widely anticipated that there was little celebration. “This was not about rocking the system, it was about humanizing the system,” said Josepha Madigan, the culture minister, who led the government’s referendum campaign. About half of the Irish electorate cast votes, with the “yes” (or, tá) vote winning in all 31 constituencies. While that’s progress for a country with deep Catholic roots, a two-year waiting period would still make divorce difficult. Places like the UK (2019) and New York state (2010) have moved to a no-fault divorce framework in which couples do not have to provide a “fact” or reason for divorcing, instead relying on the fact that it’s just not working. In the UK, prior to the changes, one spouse had to allege adultery or unreasonable behavior for the proceedings to start; the change means one or both parties can claim the marriage has broken down irretrievably. The move was also intended to stop one partner from blocking a divorce if the other one wants it. In California, there are only two grounds for divorce: incurable insanity (with proof) and irreconcilable differences that have caused the irremediable breakdown of the marriage. At the time of the proposed UK changes, Justice Secretary David Gauke said it would benefit kids: “Hostility and conflict between parents leave their mark on children and can damage their life chances,” he said. It seems the changes in all countries might benefit the adults, too.

Your heart will be twisting and turning. It is burning but it is not heated. You will be eating your favourite meal, chapati accompanied by ndengu with a side of stomach settler, cabbage. Or at this point, trying to. You will be watching one of the local television channels because in your house, like many […]

Michael Moore didn’t hold back his opinions about President Trump when the director presented at the Cannes Film Festival. When Moore presented the Jury Prize to France’s “Les Miserables” and Brazil’s “Bacurau,” he told the audience (via Deadline), “Picasso said, ‘Art is the lie that enables us to realize the truth.’ Or, as we say in […]

The Humor of It All

One of my friends has a lizard, and yes, she was recently constipated. The lizard, not my friend. And this got me thinking about how “constipation” can relate to things other than the bowels. Brace yourself, it’s a shi$&y subject, no pun intended.  What about relationships that are, “constipated” for lack of a better word, […]

(source) Eight million. Doesn’t sound much, especially if you say it quickly. Sting’s just sold his Central London pad for £19 million. Even that’s no big deal. Yesterday we learned that there are now 715,000 paper millionaires in Britain, thanks to the relentless rise in property prices. No wonder ITV scrapped Who Wants To Be […]
