Impressions of Europe - Bergen

Impressions of Europe - Bergen

Ahhh, my wallet, I miss it so....Yes, the Scandinavian countries are high trust, but hanging around tourist areas like the funicular and the crowded old merchants district can result in enough distractions and people packed in that predatory types looking for out-of-towners have ample prey. The good news was that nothing important was in my wallet. Interestingly, it's one of the northernmost full cities, and has the northernmost university in Norway. A fair number of american students were tending the registers at various shops, and a few other signs of diversity. I also got an education on the differences…

Cleanliness is Next to....

Cleanliness is Next to....

I'd posted the other day about the effort to socialize kids to a certain view, and as an addendum, to show how long it had been going in, had mentioned Devon Stack's recent Black Pilled video regarding the Stepford Wives. A crucial plot point is when our "heroine" realizes her friend has given in to the evil patriarchy when she actually starts keeping her house clean, cooking, etc.Exact claims aside, I know for a fact that one of the most common complaints feminists have against cleaning, replete with "I'm not your maid", is that it is supposedly a feminine…

Socialization

Socialization

The first time I stumbled across the header pic, I immediately loved it, and loved the reaction of several friends I passed it onto who, being pro-homeschoolers, sometimes missed that critical second word just long enough to start out on how "socialization wasn't that important and... wait." - and then laugh.On a more serious note, though, Peter Grant points us to this article he wrote at the Mad Genius Club: As the Tennessee Department of Education prepares to roll out new academic standards in math, English, social studies and science, it’s turning attention to creating the state’s…

Roundup

First of all, posting has been sparse, and not up to what I promised. I'm fixing that.First - Nick Cole reposts and expands his hit blog post on how CTRL-ALT-REVOLT was banned by his publisher, despite being a successful and well-selling author.On a related note, Larry Correia is on mewe after being banned from facebook again, and the jackasses at China Mike's are patting themselves on the back for frivolous flagging. Second, scumbags have learned to weaponize Facebook’s lax stupidity. They simply find someone they don’t like, and then report their posts. Nobody with a brain…

Goodbye, Old Guy

Goodbye, Old Guy

When it's time for an old friend to leave, there are few things more appropriate than Kipling.FOUR-FEET (from "The Woman In His Life") I have done mostly what most men do, And pushed it out of my mind; But I can't forget, if I wanted to, Four-Feet trotting behind. Day after day, the whole day through— Wherever my road inclined— Four-Feet said, "I am coming with you!" And trotted along behind. Now I must go by some other round— Which I shall never find— Somewhere that does not carry the sound Of Four-Feet trotting behind.HIS APOLOGIES 1932 Master,…
