I’m guessing that was a jug of water with a washcloth to treat protestors who were pepper sprayed. The cops found it abandoned, shoved the washcloth in, and now they have a Molotov to show everyone.

I have been arguing since that jackass shot three people in Wisconsin that plastic bottles arent fucking Molotov cocktails. Explaining the same reasons you listed. like the bottle not breaking and throwing flammable liquid everywhere.

There’s no visible burn marks on the washcloth (which you would expect if it was soaked with gasoline) nor any dents on the plastic bottle (they may be on the bottom, but there’s no visible here). Yet more bullshit from the police. Hopefully the end result of all this is that media stop reporting whatever the police Read more

Other Engineer: “I have concerns about the performance when air dropped; we may need a wider base or air foil, and the fuse may damage the delivery system. Perhaps we could coat the bottle in potassium chlorate and add sulfuric acid to the mix? Read more

Borders are closed and anyone entering has to undergo 14 days of supervised quarantine in a govt appointed hotel (at your own expense), none of this “we’ll trust you to Read more

Haven’t these people heard of cars? They will take you to actual places where you can get out and walk around outside. You can even go to places you may not have been before! I’ve been going to every outdoor park, arboretum and public gardens I reach within 2 hours of my home. It’s been amazing this summer. Read more

Completely surprising. I thought we were the stupidest people on earth and now I see there’s some real competition. Maybe with a little luck, people who forked over $575 to be in coach(!) will be seated next to an asshole who thinks you don’t need a mask when you’re over 10,000 feet in the air.

I would normally ask “what the fuck else does this monster and his gang of sociopaths have to do to lose support” but unfortunately sterilizing immigrants is one of those things that they’re definitely comfortable with. I mean, if they didn’t want to be sterilized, they shouldn’t have left their countries, right?  Read more

This is ethnic cleansing, plain and simple. Trump and his cohorts need to be dragged to the Hague.

Sounds like someone feels he has a mission to accomplish by sterilizing immigrants.  Is that doctor getting paid by the case or is he on salary? Read more
