    The East Caribbean is similar. They would never tell me what they had, but rather what they didn't have—that and the meat thing. Chicken is chicken, fish is fish, but the meat could be goat, lamb, horse, or beef. And if you asked for clarification of what kind of meat, you usually got a "it's meat" response. I'm pretty sure I had horse in the EC.

    Also, a lot of rastas who actually practiced Rastafarianism didn't eat any meat. Fish wasn't considered meat, so it was on the table but meat/chicken was not. Not sure if it was island or region-specific though as I have not met any rastas since then.

    In 1985, I walked across the street from my hotel in Montego Bay and got a chicken plate at this mom/pop place that was the only building nearby aside from the motel itself. It didn't occur to me to not get something else out of concern for them not identifying it (I've had goat, but I was told it was goat. No biggie. I have not had horse that I know of), but the lady told me she had chicken. The place was 400-500 sq feet, not much bigger, with a curtain around the area where the stove and sink were. There were two card tables and seven or eight chairs in the place. Two guys were already at one table, and for some reason I did not order to go, but ate there. I sat down to eat at the other table. the chicken (fried) was good, no problem. Dude comes in and gets a plate and sits down across from me. I was taken aback for a split second --that's all it took for me to realize that I was not in the sort of place where you get your own table-- but I don't think it showed. Dude introduced himself as Cornbread, spoke a lot about the "upcomin' Revolution", finished before I did and was gone.

    I used to play on a team with all Caribbean guys. Alla-dem from Jamay-ca, 'cept for Trevor Dread, 'im from Trin-ee-daad!

    Anyway, one of the guys had a moonlight gig as a security guard. He filled in at a posh hotel, and one of the perks was that he could help himself to the buffet. Someone asked what he had, and he said "beef." "What kind of beef?" "Cow beef! What other kind of beef is there?"

    Maybe lacking a little nuance, but still helpful.

    Dutch police have confirmed a 28-year-old man from Serbia and a 33-year-old from Portugal had been arrested on a charge of mishandling.
    What is "mishandling?"

    Considering how goldfish die when they’re overfed it was probably the other way around.

  13. Mmm, suspect google translate is going off track again.
    Correct translation should be physically abusing (like beating someone up) someone.

    Hoomins mightve been here earlier than originally thought

    When the discovery of fossilized footprints made in what’s now New Mexico was made public in 2021, it was a bombshell moment for archaeology, seemingly rewriting a chapter of the human story. Now new research is offering further evidence of their significance.

    While they look like they could have been made yesterday, the footprints were pressed into mud 21,000 to 23,000 years ago, according to radiocarbon dating of the seeds of an aquatic plant that were preserved above and below the fossils.

    This date dramatically pushed back the timeline of humans’ history in the Americas, the last landmass to be settled by prehistoric people. The 61 dated prints, which were discovered in the Tularosa Basin, near the edge of an ancient lake in White Sands National Park, were made at a time when many scientists think that massive ice sheets had sealed off human passage into North America, indicating that humans arrived in the region even earlier.

    Did the FBI find a shit ton of Civil War-era gold in them thar Pennsylvania hills? Nobody knows...or do they? o_O

    PENFIELD, Pa. (AP) — In the heart of Pennsylvania elk country, Eric McCarthy and his client, Don Reichel, got up before sunrise to scour the forest floor for so-called “brown gold” — a rack of freshly shed antlers to add to Reichel’s collection back home.

    One hill over, a team of FBI agents was also hunting for gold. The metallic yellow kind.

    The FBI’s highly unusual search for buried Civil War-era treasure more than five years ago set in motion a dispute over what, if anything, the agency unearthed and an ongoing legal battle over key records. There’s so much intrigue that even a federal judge felt compelled to note in a ruling last week: “The FBI may have found the gold — or maybe not.”

    My son’s elementary school chorus once did Crazy Train. They had a young hipster teacher who would bring her band to play with them for the concerts. Worst thing about the performance was their wimpy guitar, but the kids were great.

    Another time they did Should I Stay or Should I Go, that was pretty funny too.

    Playing schools is kinda fun. Most of the kids haven't seen a big bass up close, so it's a teaching moment. If there's time, they file past and get a good look. I did a demo for some pre-schoolers back in the late 90s- for the last part, I sat each one on my stool and gave them each a chance to draw the bow across the strings. Best part was bringing it into the classroom. I had to speak with the teacher for a few minutes, and the bass was laying on its side in its bag. They got up from their desks and stood around the bag --didn't touch anything, good kids-- but they alternated between staring at the bag and staring at me, like "Okay, can we see what's in here already?"

    Random thought, who remembers Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law and Space Ghost Coast to Coast. Like the OG adult swim shows.

    Harvey Birdman was hilarious and Colbert’s voice acting in those days way brilliant.

    Was also fond of Sealab 2021 and of course, the Venture Brothers.
