Imagine being charged to take a lunch break... even if you didn't. Welcome to the world of these electronics assembly line workers

Mike Rodgers

Almost $3 billion in *profit*, and they're fighting tooth and nail over a couple million, that the workers were actually owed. SMDH.

Creep travels half the world to harass online teen gamer… and gets shot by her mom – cops

Oh, and btw, we don't have universal health care, so, good luck with that hospital bill. Oops.

Is this cough cancer, doc? No: it's a case of Playmobil on the lung

Mike Rodgers

It never ceases to amaze me

At what the body can withstand and adapt to - and at the same time just how little it can take to kill you. SMH

Don’t fear the software shopkeeper: T&Cs banning bad reviews aren’t legal in America

Mike Rodgers

Don't worry. Our illustrious "leaders" will soon realize they voted for the wrong party to be protected. You can rest assured they'll fix it just as soon as it's pointed out to them.

Pennsylvania cops deploy electronics sniffer dog to catch child abusers

Mike Rodgers

So that extra memory card that has all my vacation pictures on it that I just took is arbitrarily going to be confiscated - because the damn dog smelled it?!

Big Tech fumes over Prez Trump's decision to deport a million kids

Mike Rodgers

Six months??? Congress had seven YEARS to do something with the ACA. Good luck with DACA. (It'll be even worse, because it has four letters instead of only three.)

On today's a-gender: Axing net neutrality will harm America's women, say women senators

Pai is like the Honey Badger - he don't give a sh*t.

'Knucklehead' Kansas bloke shoots self in foot

Mike Rodgers

Darn shame he didn't have it uncomfortably tucked into his waistband - maybe he'd have shot something that would have left more of an "impression".

F-35's dodgy software in the spotlight again

Mike Rodgers

I think I'd be scared sh**less if I had to fly that thing.

Do dishwashers really blunt knives

Mike Rodgers

Re: Serrated edges?

You can get some ceramic sticks for the valleys, try to find some really coarse leather to drag the flat side against to smooth down the inevitable curl you'll create.

I'm guessing you can still get the sticks, they used to come as a pair and stuck into a block of wood to make a "V".

Re: Do dishwashers really blunt knives

They get dull because the average person tosses them in the silverware basket with everything else - and it gets beat to death during agitation by the other utensils.

Only a merciful BULLET can really save a RHINO, say Texas hunters

Mike Rodgers

Can we do this with politicians?

I can think of quite a few, and at least the fundraising would finally be for a good cause.

Who here needs to explain things to ELEPHANTS?

Mike Rodgers

But I wonder, she continually *looked* over at the bucket, maybe the elephant was watching her eyes, where she was looking, rather than where she was pointing.

Or, maybe it just "looked" that way to me. (hahaha, i crack myself up!)

Feds arrest rogue trucker after GPS jamming borks New Jersey airport test

Mike Rodgers

They ought to be thanking the guy - for showing just how fallible their new system is! I mean, you're going to land planes with this "new" system, and a simple $100 jammer can totally screw it up??

Emmerdale shoves jam rags in innocent kiddies' faces

Mike Rodgers

Why not just tell the kids "I don't know"?

The kids are young, just say "I don't know what that means" and they'll forget about it. Jeez.

Jane Fonda c-word slip shocks US

Mike Rodgers

"millions of families" were offended???

"While NBC's apology is helpful, it is not enough – millions of families were indeed offended..." Millions? Really, wow, who made all those phone calls to learn that?

US immigration cavity search ends in agony

Mike Rodgers

This truly embarrasses me to think we've gotten so stupid

But I do have a couple of questions:

1. What, or why, was he being so "thoroughly" investigated? What did he do or represent to be considered such a threat that so invasive an inspection needed to be done?

2. Why in the HELL didn't he have a deservedly self-righteous fit and insist on being seen or attended by another, hopefully competent doctor?

3. What restitution is being provided to him? Medical expenses, financial amends..., anything? Or just a "Hey, oh well, welcome to the US!"
