    Remember how we were told my the politicians (not the scientists) that a deadly Novichok nerve agent - produced by Russia - was used in the attempted assassination of the Skripals? Remember the 50 questions (here and here) we had surrounding the 'facts' as Theresa May had laid them out? Ever wonder why, given how utterly deadly we were told this chemical was, the Skripals wondered around for a few hours after being 'infected' and then days later, survived with no chronic damage?

    Well those doubts may well have just been answered as according to the independent Swiss state Spiez lab, the substance used on Sergei Skripal was an agent called BZ, which was never produced in Russia, but was in service in the US, UK, and other NATO states.

    Not Weird: Cool
    New 3-D map of Milky Way will ‘revolutionize astronomy’

    Europe’s Gaia satellite has produced a “stunning” 3-D map, published Wednesday, of more than a billion stars in our Milky Way galaxy, complete with their distance from Earth, their colour, and their motion through space.

    The eagerly-anticipated catalogue was compiled from data gathered by Gaia on some 1.7 billion stars over 22 months in 2014-2016, from its unique vantage point in space about 1.5 million kilometres (930,000 miles) from Earth.

    'Sexuality expert' says parents should ask for baby's consent when changing nappies

    A news network in Australia has come under fire after it aired an interview with a “sexuality expert” who urged parents to ask for their baby’s consent when changing nappies.

    Deanne Carson, a "sexuality educator" with Body Safe Australia appeared on the show to talk about establishing a “culture of consent” in the home.


    Speaking during the segment on ABC news she said she works with children from birth on issues of consent.


    When asked to give an example of how parents could establish the culture in their home she said they could ask questions such as “I'm going to change your nappy now, is that okay?"

    Deanne Carson said parents should create a culture of consent for their children

    She continued: “Of course the baby is not going to respond 'yes mum, that's awesome. I'd love to have my nappy changed.'


    “But if you leave a space, and wait for body language and wait to make eye contact, then you're letting that child know that their response matters.”

    Many viewers were left confused by this advice.

    This is great, but what got to me in the article is his insurance doesn't cover the surgery. He was injured in combat. That SHOULD be covered by the damn government which sent him there to get his junk blown off in the first place!

    As a totally not-gay Polack who knew Joan (and had seen her without makeup!) I approve this.
