Why are we seeing riots in France when there are plenty of reasons for riots in US?
I don't know yet if there was actual rioting today, I"ve been cut off from the radio for like 14 hours. I know that major 'public safety" measures were taken, with their most visible effect to negatively impact my ability to go to and fro freely and to be on time for appointments... but beside a defaced bank, my neighbourhood seems to have been quite quiet.

maybe there were, I just never was at the right place at the right time to see them.

OTOH, I was in the Star Square area around 11 or 14; when the rioters were expected there about 17:30... so I may have missed the full deployment of our oppression officers.

I'm unhappy with my life but not yet suicidal.

I'm unhappy with my life but not yet suicidal.
Un fermier surveillait ses animaux dans un pâturage éloigné, quelque part au nord d'Amiens, quand soudain une rutilante BMW s’avança vers lui dans un nuage de poussière.
Le conducteur, un jeune homme portant un complet Armani, des chaussures Gucci, des lunettes de soleil Ray-Ban et une cravate Yves St-Laurent, s’étira le cou par la fenêtre et demanda au fermier : - "Si je te dis exactement combien de vaches et de veaux il y a dans ton troupeau, me donneras-tu un veau ?"

Léon regarda l’homme, définitivement un yuppie, puis jeta un regard vers son troupeau en train de brouter tranquillement et répondit avec calme : - "Oui, pourquoi pas..."

Le yuppie stationne son auto et s’empare de son mini ordinateur Dell, le branche à son cellulaire, et navigue sur Internet vers un site de la NASA, et contacte ensuite un satellite GPS pour obtenir un positionnement exact de l’endroit, puis fournit les coordonnées à un autre satellite de la NASA qui numérise le secteur en une photo ultra haute résolution.
Le jeune homme accède ensuite au site de photographie digitale Adobe et exporte l’image vers un site d’analyse d’image à Hambourg en Allemagne.

Quelques secondes après, il reçoit un courriel sur son IPad Air mentionnant que l’image a été analysée et que les données ont été conservées. Il accède ensuite à une base de données MS – SQL via un OBDC connecté à une feuille de calcul Excel avec courriel sur son Blackberry et après quelques minutes, reçoit une réponse.

Il se tourne vers le fermier et lui dit : - "Tu as exactement 1586 vaches et veaux."

- "C’est bien vrai. Ok, tu peux prendre l’un de mes veaux", dit le fermier. Il observa donc le jeune yuppie qui choisissait un des animaux et le regarda amusé pendant que le jeune homme installait l’animal dans le coffre arrière de sa BMW.

Alors le fermier dit au jeune homme : - "Hep ! Si je te dis exactement dans quel secteur d’activités tu travailles, me redonneras-tu mon veau ?"

Le jeune homme réfléchit un instant et dit : - "Ok, pourquoi pas…"
- "T’es membre du gouvernement de Emmanuel Macron", dit le fermier.
- "Wow ! C’est exact", dit le Yuppie, - "Mais comment as-tu pu deviner cela ? "
- "J’ ai pas eu besoin de deviner’’, dit-il. - "T’es arrivé ici sans que personne ne t’invite, tu veux te faire payer pour une réponse que je connaissais déjà, à une question que je ne me posais pas. Tu t’es servi d’un équipement valant des millions d'euros pour essayer de me prouver que tu es plus intelligent que moi, alors que tu ne connais rien des travailleurs et de ce qu’ils font pour gagner leur vie. Tu ne connais rien aux vaches. Ce que tu as devant toi, c’est un troupeau de moutons !
Maintenant, redonne-moi mon chien."
Fala cara de cú!

Is this still happening, Svartalf?

I saw a 'yellow vest' here, but he might have been just running. (the dog looked sketchy, though)

in some areas, most certainly, but not Paris, we barely had one day of real snow, and it was all melted off the next day... can't say I'm unhappy with it, my two main pairs of shoes are awfully vulnerable to slippery ground, and the old Docs are not my favorites, event though they still have fairly good non-slip soles.

There are products like yaktracks, which are basically strap-on cleats for shoes. They are good if conditions are right, but it's like skating on the wrong surfaces (tile, for example)

Better still are an exercise called planks. Planks can be done laying in bed, a urine-soaked alley or the floor of a bar. They benefit from drinking while doing them, partly because of the added challenge of increasing drunkenness, partly from the off-balance work.

Planks and liquor, Svartalf. The kind of exercise which will NEVER show.

We seldom have snow that lies. We had some Monday 2cms. It was gone on Tuesday. We sit in a little "valley" behind the dunes. Just 200 metres further inland the snow is still lying. In summer time the reverse is true; we can be sitting in sea mist and down the road it is brilliant sunshine.

It's all those fucking Italians fault! :lay:

https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-02-08/ ... g/10794688
France has recalled its ambassador to Italy — a remarkable diplomatic split between neighbours and European Union allies — over what it described as "repeated, baseless" attacks by Italian political leaders against France.

I am reading that Germany's automotive industry is in dire straights, 20% down in January third month in a row amid diesel-arguments and similar. This industry makes up 1/5 of the Germany's BIP. Wolfsburg soon a second Detroit? This is serious guys! When the Germans put on the yellow jackets, they will be talking business!
