Well, I'm NEVER EVER voting for Hilary Clinton EVER.


And that's the truth.

I can't, I live in Scotland.





Nicola Sturgeon, First Minister of Holyrood, the Scottish Government, GENDER BALANCED her cabinet.

http://www.theguardian.com/politics/2014/nov/21/nicola-sturgeon-scottish-cabinet-equal-gender-balance#comments

Scotland’s first female first minister, Nicola Sturgeon, has announced a new cabinet with a 50/50 gender balance, after pledging to put equality at the heart of government.

Announcing the full lineup at Bute House in Edinburgh on Friday lunchtime, Sturgeon said her cabinet was “a clear demonstration that this government will work hard in all areas to promote women, to create gender equality and it sends out a strong message that the business of redressing the gender balance in public life starts right here in government”. Of Sturgeon’s cabinet of nine secretaries as well as herself, five are women.

Sturgeon began her reshuffle by tweeting a selfie with John Swinney, her new deputy first minister. Swinney, who had been widely tipped for the role, is one of Holyrood’s most experienced frontbenchers and has previously served as finance minister for seven years, a position he will continue to hold.


I think this is a good idea.

(I don't know whether or not you guys knew this. It's from November, so I'm sorry if you already knew).

Anyway. I didn't know whether or not to post this as it seems likely to draw the obvious arguments.... but I thought it would be a good idea to show that this kind of thing can in fact be done.

Say, you guys! Do any of you want to attend a course on managing passive aggressive behaviour?









No. You don't, do you?




Sigh.




Well, never mind.



No, no, it's fine. Don't worry about it. It's fine. I'm sure you have more important things to concern yourselves with.


I guess I'll just... take the course myself.















People seeing Putin everywhere


VLADIMIR Putin sightings have surged in the last 48 hours.

After the Russian president disappeared, witnesses claim to have seen him selling DVDs from a van in Carlisle, married to a voodoo princess in New Orleans and organising penguins near the UK Antarctic Research Centre.

Putinologist Wayne Hayes said: “The Putin is a cipher, a construct of our subconscious, representing our innate desire for sexual experimentation.

Ikea Bans Hide-And-Seek In Stores - Report


Thousands were set to take part in the events at a number of stores, but they have reportedly been stopped for safety reasons.

The retailer has stopped several events at Dutch stores for safety reasons after thousands took part in the children's game at a store in Belgium last summer, Bloomberg reports.

Ikea Group spokeswoman Martina Smedberg is quoted by the news organisation as saying: "It's hard to control.
