Er, shouldn’t this be a news headline from 2014?

Russia is already attacking the west and has been for years. Apart from GRU-sponsored infrastructure attacks, there’s nothing really new that’s needed, beyond people taking the existing risks seriously.

So what is new? Cyberattacks and ransomware are commonly linked back to Russia.

Russia is losing on the one battlefront so they want to start fighting on another.

I’m sure that will help them globally

Russian forces have driven Ukrainian defenders from most parts of the besieged city of Mariupol and could fully capture the southeastern port city “in the coming week,” the Institute for the Study of War said

“Can’t defend a city if there’s no city left to defend”

– Russian military’s offensive siege operations handbook

Wow, 50-days to take one city. Ukrainian’s are putting up one hell of a fight!

scruggsyWPB

For what it’s worth, I’ve been reading the ISW updates daily for the entire conflict…

They’ve been predicting Mariupol’s fall “in the next few days” for about a month now.

xoforoct

So even with almost no defenders left it will still take a week in in Russian time? So about a month in real people time?

This is why you treat soldiers who surrender well. If soldiers feel like surrendering will mean torture or death, they’ll fight to the end

GOP Rep. Upton says death threats made bipartisan votes ‘frightening’

This is what happens when you label Democrats “evil.” Any compromise with them becomes you “compromising with evil” (in the eyes of Republicans). That’s why being even bipartisan once gets you called a RINO.

The GOP have no one to blame but themselves for that kind of behavior coming from their own constituents. They and Donald Trump made that sort of behavior acceptable again in their minds.

Yeah, that’s kind of the point.

We need to increase sentences/fines on death threats, and raise sentencing guidelines with mandatory incarceration for a first conviction.

Theats of violence stifles democracy. Stronger measures are in order.

If republicans voters wanted good people in the government, they wouldn’t keep voting for the shittiest people running for office. Elections for the gop is essentially just a race to the bottom

> “You know, it puts you at risk, particularly when they threaten not only you — and I like to think I’m pretty fast — but when they threaten your spouse or your kids or whatever, that’s what really makes it frightening,” Upton told Meet the Press.

Soooo, terrorism, unchecked domestic terrorism from the right wing. Using fear to force people out of politics.

PepperMill_NA

This is right out of the old KGB manual. Every step of the way, people warn, and the very next step people ignore.

Our country is under assault. China, Russia, Iran, our own greedy billionaires are using every crack to make a great divide, so they can eat the scraps. Now the jackals get to run things, and it only gets worse.

Vote.

Nick had always wanted to own a motorcycle, which is why he leapt at the chance when a friend of a friend was selling his bike

The bike, despite being old, was in immaculate condition.

“How do you keep it so pristine?” asks Nick.

“Oh, it’s easy! Any time it’s about to rain, I just coat the body with vaseline, and the rain and mud just slips right off! Here, I’m not going to need it anymore, why don’t you take this tub?” and the guy hands over a tub of vaseline to go with the bike.

Nick picks up his girlfriend, Amy, where they’re going to dinner at her parents’ house. He’s nervous, as it’s his first time ever meeting them. He makes sure the bike is perfect, picks up Amy, and they head on over.

Shortly before they arrive, Amy warns him. “There’s something you should know about my family. We have a strange rule – the first person to talk at dinner has to do the dishes.”

Nick thinks that this rule is a little odd, but whatever, it’s not a big deal to do some dishes. But as they pull up to the house, Nick starts to see that things are a bit worse than he thought. There are dishes stacked up on the front porch, some stacks towering eight feet high, all precariously balanced. Inside the house, there are dirty dishes *everywhere*. These people must have been buying new dishes for every meal for years, with how many dishes there are.

Predictably, dinner is silent. As nick eats, he starts to feel horny, and figures that no one is going to say anything, so throws Amy to the floor and sates himself. No one says a word.

A little bit later, he’s feeling horny again, and the mom has been eyeing him, so he throws her down and has his way with her too.

After he finishes, he hears a crack of thunder and looks outside to see rain clouds forming. Remembering the tip about the rain, he pulls out the vaseline. Amy’s dad bellows out, “Alright! Alright! I’ll do the fucking dishes!”

How have i seen only two r/jokes posts today and they’re both about vaseline??

CradleRobin

This joke doesn’t make me laugh nearly as much as it makes me want to fuck my girlfriend’s dad.

Daveyhavok832

I love that the absurd idea of rubbing vaseline on a motorcycle to keep rain/mud off is completely irrelevant to the joke. The vaseline could have been for any of the many other reasons people use vaseline and it would still have worked

tidythendenied

wouldnt it be dangerous to ride a vaseline covered slippery motorcycle in the rain? I am pcturing that game where you try to pick up a greased watermelon in shallow water, except that watermelon is going 55 miles an hour on hard, roadrash-y concrete.

Always appreciate seeing these documentaries of places within a place where we would normally think wouldn’t exist.

mycologicill

From this i learned the song gangnam style is a parody on the rich, however looking at the English lyrics i really dont see many jabs.

melbournediver

I (westerner) used to live and work in this area and I’d frequently hike Guryong Mountain and walk through the slum on my way down. There were a few smaller pocket slums around the area and different parts of Seoul but they were often well hidden like this one.

stonetime10

Thank you for a great documentary, it is always interesting to learn about this kind of parallel society’s.
however I did some reading and fortunately the government have really been trying helping the people who have been living where. today it is mostly complete empty.

Tell her that you don’t need religion to tell you what’s right and wrong. That’s what you’ve got a conscience for.

You could also mention that if God is her moral compass than considering the murderous wretch of a character he is in the Bible, perhaps she should reconsider or maybe actually read the Bible. God did some pretty horrific shit.

“Ok, things aren’t going as well as I had hoped”, said God. “I’ve got it! I’ll tell Noah to build a boat, collect 2 of each animal and then drown everyone else. Yeah, yeah, I know they couldn’t all be bad but enough of them were. And sure the animals weren’t all bad either. They were just being animals but hey, their just animals so fuck them.”

“I really appreciate you sparing me and my family God”, says Noah. “The thing is, since you killed everyone else and we have to repopulate the entire human race, we’ll, gosh I don’t know how to say this but, incest is really our only option and that never ends well for anyone.”

“Not my problem.”, says God.

This is a media approved way to think about us.

“You’re sitting there talking with a dude and he tells you he’s an atheist, you need to pack it up and go home. You know, talking to a person that don’t believe in God, what’s his moral barometer? Where’s it at? It’s nowhere.” – Steve Harvey

What should I do with all this ham?

Read the Story

Show Top Comments

There are TONS of ways you can use up left over ham. A search online will give you a bunch of ideas but here are my ideas off the top of my head.

Ham fried rice

Ham quiche or frittata (add any other veggies/cheeses you have to bulk it up even more)

Ham in pasta or pasta bakes or casseroles (tons of different recipes)

Add ham to scalloped potato’s or au gratin potatoes

Add ham to roasted veggies (almost anything would work but could be great with like Brussel sprouts, potatoes/sweet potatoes, onions, carrots, etc.)

All different types of elevated ham sandwiches (grilled cheese ham sandwich, ham sliders on rolls, sandwiches with ham and mustard)

Ham soup/ham and split pea soup (save the ham bone!! It’s great to make the stock)

Should last sliced up for a number of days in the fridge. Put it in an airtight container of you can so it lasts longer/doesn’t dry out.

ames_006

I would freeze it, if not 3-5 days in the fridge. Other than that though, maybe invite some people over to share it with. Ham Party.

STEMteacher_

I usually make a big batch of split pea soup and also use ham for breakfast hash/scramble.

the7thfollower

Cut it up and store most of it in your freezer, you probably aren’t going to use that much ham within 5 days.

Recipe wise I recommend split pea soup, ham casserole, beans and ham, salads with ham, ham and cheese roll-ups and everyone’s favorite ham sandwiches.

Negative-Industry-88

I made a monster of a ham once for just two people. This is what I did.

Cut up all the part of the ham that was spiral cut into as nice of slices I could manage. Portioned out a dinner’s worth and kept that in the fridge. Wrapped up and froze all the rest of the nice slices.

What meat was left on the bone after getting all the nice slices off, I chunked up what I could from off the bone. Took another dinner’s worth of that and put in a container for the fridge, and like I did with the slices wrapped them up and froze it.

I also threw the bone and anything that was attached into a Ziploc bag and put that in the freezer as well. I made a nice ham stock to use for liquid for cooking beans. I 100% recommend this. You already have the bone, might as well get as much as you can out of it since the cost of everything has gone bonkers.

I only had two portions in the refrigerator as I knew I’d get tired of ham… I do enjoy a bit of variety in my meals, so I didn’t want to waste any ham if it went off cause I didn’t feel like eating it.

But with the leftovers, I had made ham fried rice often as it’s legit my husband’s favorite thing whenever his family used to order Chinese takeout. You can also add it into eggs for breakfast, make an awesome split pea soup with the ham stock I mentioned for you to make with the bone, mix it in with some Mac and cheese and your favorite veggies and you got a one pot meal. And beans. Ham and beans are meant for each other.
