|From IKEA's Malm page. Too little, too late.|
NBC News:Fuck this shit. I'm off to Burbank to loot the local IKEA before it burns to the ground. Anyone w/ me?After 3 Deaths, Ikea Recalls Millions of Dangerous Dressers — Ikea Recalling Tens of Millions of Dressers Over Tipping Concerns 1:52 — Ikea has issued a recall for 29 million chests and dressers that can easily tip over onto children, injuring or killing them, NBC News confirmed.
On the other hand, giving stupid children enough rope is not a bad move in the direction of population control &/or reduction. Nor are parents w/o blame. (Are they ever?) Another quandary where nihilism seems the only answer.

Apologies are not enough, Popey.
"I think the church must not only apologize ... to a gay person it offended, but we must apologize to the poor, to women who have been exploited, to children forced into labor, apologize for having blessed so many weapons" and for having failed to accompany families who faced divorces or experienced other problems.

Let's pause for just a moment & enjoy some music. That was refreshing, wasn't it? Now back to our story.
I do enjoy the murderous apes comprising the dominant primate species of this world of shit & pain dropping the civility & expressing themselves aloud in public venues like rabid zoo animals flinging feces in their cages.

Couldn't (possibly) care (any) less about English gits & their pathetic fear of wogs driving them from the E.U., but there is hope the punters have returned the world's economy to the dumper as "Asian shares sink" in reaction.

|THE KEEP CALM-O-MATIC|
The War on Stupid PeopleDo not be deceived, it is, alas, some whiner bitching & moaning about the plight of the morons in today's smart society, rather than admitting what a drag the cretins are on everything & everyone else.
Those who consider themselves bright openly mock others for being less so. Even in this age of rampant concern over microaggressions and victimization, we maintain open season on the nonsmart. People who’d swerve off a cliff rather than use a pejorative for race, religion, physical appearance, or disability are all too happy to drop the s‑bomb: Indeed, degrading others for being “stupid” has become nearly automatic in all forms of disagreement.Cue the sad trombones. It's the 21st century, bleeding heart. Catch up or fade away.
We must stop glorifying intelligence and treating our society as a playground for the smart minority. We should instead begin shaping our economy, our schools, even our culture with an eye to the abilities and needs of the majority, and to the full range of human capacity. The government could, for example, provide incentives to companies that resist automation, thereby preserving jobs for the less brainy. It could also discourage hiring practices that arbitrarily and counterproductively weed out the less-well-IQ’ed. This might even redound to employers’ benefit: Whatever advantages high intelligence confers on employees, it doesn’t necessarily make for more effective, better employees. Among other things, the less brainy are, according to studies and some business experts, less likely to be oblivious of their own biases and flaws, to mistakenly assume that recent trends will continue into the future, to be anxiety-ridden, and to be arrogant.This dunce-loving traitor-to-intelligence is being really racist against smart people, & wants Idiocracy realized.
When Michael Young, a British sociologist, coined the term meritocracy in 1958, it was in a dystopian satire. At the time, the world he imagined, in which intelligence fully determined who thrived and who languished, was understood to be predatory, pathological, far-fetched. Today, however, we’ve almost finished installing such a system, and we have embraced the idea of a meritocracy with few reservations, even treating it as virtuous. That can’t be right. Smart people should feel entitled to make the most of their gift. But they should not be permitted to reshape society so as to instate giftedness as a universal yardstick of human worth.There are over seven billion of you. Every one of you can be quickly & easily replaced, by someone younger & willing to work for less. No human is "worth" a damn thing on the open market. Give up already.

Very disappointed that 100°F (37.7778°C) only feels like 95°F (35°C). A dry heat, however.

Once again we see that one side (the left) is correct & one side (the right) is wrong. Man bites dog. And delusional conservative economists can bite my ass!
Should you like to hear our state song, to which I & millions of others have been subjected, esp. during baseball games (Indeed, it just ran on the Dodger game as I was searching YouTube for it!) for the last four yrs., now is your chance to suffer as well.
