So apparently some of the dudes on Arrested Development have some issues. Its definitely unfortunate and disappointing to hear all this negativity surrounding the show, just as the new season is dropping, but on the other hand, I havent heard much about these issues since the show came out and I really wanna watch it, so where exactly did we land on this whole thing?
So can I watch new Arrested Development season or not?
I suppose I could go the route of saying I can separate the art from the artist, but it seems like a lot of people, especially on social media, are not accepting of that ideology lately. On the other hand, all of those same people seem to have moved on to yelling at Roseanne so maybe Im in the clear. I dont really get the rules of how this works. Are we only allowed to hate one show at a time? Does it work like in The Ring where only one show is cursed at a time? I just need someone to give me a definitive answer, yes or no. Am I allowed to watch or not?!
Am I even allowed to ask if Im allowed to watch it? I heard that asking marginalized individuals to explain their oppression is something called emotional labor. Well how much does that cost per hour? I will literally pay any amount of money if it means I can watch Arrested Development free of guilt.
So as of now, I guess the answer is no, I cant watch it. And thats okay. I care about marginalized groups and refuse to support art that reinforces systematic oppression and turns a blind eye to abuse. And I will stand by that belief until everyone else forgets about it or one of my woke friends says they watched it.
Until that day I am standing strong. In summation: Because of all the scandal surrounding Arrested Development, I am boycotting it
Narrator: He isnt.

Please tell me what you are unapologetically pedantic about. (Mine is a tie between clarifying that not all instrumental music is classical, and noting that factoid doesnt mean small fact.)
Do not say literally. This is a literally-as-intensifier safe space. Thx.

Ultra bonus if the thing youre pedantic about isnt a grammar thing.

After being sentenced for burglary, Arthur Mayfield, 23, has asked to be sent to a womens prison. He admits that he has never given much thought to LGBT issues until now: apart from staying away from that dodgy ginger who kept smiling at me in the exercise yard the last time I did a stretch.
Like every other criminal, I wanted to go back to the same nick where all my burglar and mugger mates are banged up, he says. But then he had a revelation about his sexual identity after watching a DVD called Shaved Lesbian Prison Orgy IV, which hed stolen from his neighbours cell. It hit me like a thunderbolt, he says. I instinctively knew thats where I belonged in a shower being soaped by a bunch of nymphomaniac convicts who are too horny to notice that Im a man.

SAN ANTONIO Aspiring musician Josh Snchezs trusty Jim Dunlop guitar pick is reportedly securely lodged in an auxiliary compartment of his wallet just in case he may get a chance to use it, sources close to Snchez confirm.
Hes had that pick in his wallet and a dream in his heart for as long as Ive known him, long-time friend Keith Lawley said. He almost sealed the deal at a house party we were at about a month ago there was this guitar with an amazing Dreadnought body, propped up in the living room. But just as Josh was making his way over, some douche swooped in on it and started playing Wonderwall. Its always those guys that end up getting lucky like that.
Snchez has been prevented from retrieving the pick from his wallet before, as ex-girlfriend Leah-Marie Marsh confirmed.
Things were warming up between us, and I thought Id let him play with my band, Marsh explained. But he was just really bad at fingerstyle, so I didnt let him go any further with me. I felt bad about it and asked if maybe he wanted to play bass instead but he stormed off.
Honestly, Im not sure who hes trying to convince with that 1.5 millimeter Tortex pick anyway, she added. A .75 nylon is way more appropriate for his style.
However, Snchez remains optimistic about his chances of playing with his pick soon.
Ive had my eye on this gorgeous model at Guitar Center for weeks, and I really think Ive got a chance with it if they dont reject my credit application again, Snchez said. Man, its been so long its gonna be so sweet to finally put this bad boy to use. I hope the heat from being in my wallet all this time didnt fuck it up or anything. Wait, these things dont expire, right?
At press time, Snchez was reportedly humiliated after the pick fell out of his wallet as he was reaching for his ID, landing right in front of the guitar he desired.

The UK economy grew by an extra 0.002% last months thanks mainly to the sales of consumer goods like mopeds and hammers while sales in luxury items such as mobile phones, Fist Aid kits and handbags also showed a healthy increase.
The recent growth has mostly been in London and the south east but we are already seeing moped sales increase in the Midlands and North West. They are particularly popular with young people who are no doubt enthused by that old Tory rallying cryget on your bike and look for workwell, thats something else the Tories can be proud of.getting gangs of youths off their backsides and onto bikes.all roaming the streets looking for work.
Business Secretary Greg Clarke added that sales of kitchen utensils used to carve meat and make sandwiches was also up: Get your money behind stab vests, that seems to be the next big growth market. They might look awkward and drabbut they seem to be the latest fashion accessory for the man about town.everybody in the city seems to be wearing them these days.
That well-known bastion of fairness and reason, The Daily Express, has published a front page containing a veiled threat. Actually, its not particularly veiled. This is what it looks like.
These 14 responses pretty much say it all.

LBC presenter James OBrien is known for speaking his mind its why he decided to stop working for the BBC so he could share his opinions about Brexit but this is something else.
OBrien spoke out after Farage interviewed millionaire businessman and Leave.EU co-founder Arron Banks over claims that he had multiple meetings with Russian embassy officials in the run-up to the Brexit vote.
One of the chief cheerleaders of the leave campaign was of course Nigel Farage, so it wasnt the most vigorous of interviews as you can imagine.
And this is what happened when Carole Cadwalladr, a proper journalist, rang the show to ask Banks and presumably Farage some proper questions.

In a bold move to reduce the amount of time that passengers spend waiting for flights that never take off, Easyjet are to introduce the pre-cancelled flight. Hours of frustrating and pointless waiting will be eliminated and delays could be made a thing of the past.
Flights will be booked as normal with the added choice of pre-cancellation for a small fee, said an Easyjet spokesperson for a small fee. Customers will no longer need to wait around in the airport living off overpriced takeaway food and choking on their own sense of injustice.
Instead they can experience the disappointment of cancelled flights in the comfort of their own home at their own convenience. We expect that the type of customers that this will appeal to will be people who didnt want to go anyway, business people wanting to pull a sickie and old blokes who are bored with ranting about people parking outside their house and need a new outlet for their bile.
As part of the pre-cancellation service Easyjet will provide an automated telephone line where people can phone to rant about how they will never use Easyjet again and will book with British Airways next time. The website will provide a picture of a member of Easyjet staff with an expression on their face that screams whatever we know youll come back because you are cheap to support the call service.

Really? You want to be that guy with the homemade guitar? Ok, well Im not going to tell you how to live your life. Heres how to build your own guitar for twice the price of a store bought guitar:
First youre going to need a bunch of tools you dont own yet. Thats gonna cost you more than a new Gibson but you can convince yourself that woodworking is a useful hobby and that you will use that table-saw and drill press all the time. You could also bring the lumber to your dads garage but then youll have to put up with that old bastard talking down to you and treating you like a child the whole time. Whatever you wanna do though, this was all your idea.
Next you want to shape the body. You got your strat, your dreadnaught, your mockingbird oh, who am I kidding, youre going to make a flying V, you predictable poser. The shape is as impractical as this whole idea but, hey, do your thing.
After you cut out your body and neck you are going to sand. Keep sanding. Even more. Even more sanding. You arent done sanding yet! Keep sanding until your lungs are clogged with sawdust because it isnt punk to wear proper safety gear. I didnt say stop sanding!
You think you are almost done?! Not even close, junior. You still have to etch the fretboards, make the rod cover, and do a million coats of stain, top coat, and shielding. More than likely you are going to give up at this point, just like you do with everything else. Remember when you were going to get really into ice sculpting? Well, where is that chain saw now, buddy?
Oh, youre still with me? Trying to prove something, are you? Well its time to install the electronics and here is a wiring schematic that I am sure you will understand, no problem. Wait, where are you going? Maybe you should go get that chainsaw and end this guitar-abominations pitiful existence.
Congratulations, you just spent thousands of dollars making a guitar that looks like shit and sounds even worse. Come on, Ill give you a ride to guitar center.

Professional historians have been startled by the recent archaeological discovery that that the British Isles were not only populated prior to their colonisation by the EU, but that the islanders there had discovered fire, the wheel and alcohol, and even had a kind of primitive language.
We do not know if they ever got as far as engaging in trade with other countries, said researcher Mademoiselle Fifi leBlanc. But we are amazed to find that they even had an obscure form of writing, and were actually in the process of discovering arithmetic. It is staggering to think that rest of the world had never heard of them!
The only greater unsolved mysteries for us professional historians are why it took so long to discover Australia, and why Canada exists. But what we can agree, is that the UK existed before Brexit were just not sure if it will be around afterwards.
BROOKLYN, N.Y. Legendary MC Busta Rhymes surprised the hip-hop community this morning by dropping a sternly worded lecture on his son 10-year old son Treman that cycled through more than six life lessons in 11 seconds, sources confirmed.

I know its supposed to be a private moment, but this is easily Dads best verse since Why Stop Now.
Even though the talking-to demonstrated the Brooklyn rappers trademark lyrical acrobatics at breakneck speed over a sparse beat, some critics were underwhelmed.
The speed is still there, but gone is the originality and unique chaos of the Busta Rhymes we all fell in love with in 94, lamented hip-hop critic and child psychologist Dr. Gatzz of Parental Guidance Advised magazine. The rhyming is rudimentary, the beat is painfully straightforward, and the advice is, at best, derivative, generic platitudes that lack true insight, which will fail to connect with the child thus leaving the problematic behavior unabated.
Rarely autobiographical in his songs, the father-son moment instigated a flurry of speculation over the Break Ya Neck rappers home life. Despite being separated by 13 floors, neighbors of the notoriously boisterous rapper heard the talk drop live, and offered their own theories.
Theres been a lot of tension in the apartment recently. Ever since the kids turned started middle school, hes started listening to indie rock, which didnt sit well with Busta, disclosed one neighbor wishing to remain anonymous. But, also, the whole familys still reeling from Tribes last album not getting nominated, so someone was bound to blow eventually. Jeezy out.
The lecture is already being considered for the upcoming mixtape, Lets Rap a compilation of tough parent-child conversations, as performed by popular hip-hop artists.

Publisher Penguin Random House has announced measures to make sure its books reflect our diverse society more accurately and some people werent happy. Author Lionel Shriver criticised the policy, which had the (un)fortunate consequence of prompting Toby Young to add his hot take.
The problem with Penguins new, virtue-signalling inclusion policy is that any BME, gay, trans or female authors it publishes from now on will worry that they havent been chosen on merit, but because they tick a diversity box https://t.co/EuHaFNZYB1

According to his wife Melania, US President Donald Trump is apparently extremely jealous of Canadas Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, with his youthful film-star looks and thick locks of his own hair.
I really worry about Donald sometimes, eating cheeseburgers all day and tweeting into the early hours. I really do hope he doesnt blow up the world because he has promised to buy me the biggest diamond ring in the history of the universe, so I hope all those poor people in Africa and other shithole countries will keep digging and find it one day soon.
Vladimir Putin thanked Melania for being Russias greatest-ever spy: Who needs social media manipulation and cyber attacks when we have Melania?

The older generation arent always up-to-date with the ways of the world, but when one woman was getting ready to join her local LGBTQ+ Pride march, her grandma did the sweetest thing.

The post went viral, because its such a positive image, so Lexie also shared the story of coming out to her grandma.
It took me years to come out to her out of fear that she would see me differently, but nothing changed. She said, Okay, thats fine. She taught me to love and accept all people, and she has always been supportive of me.
Lexie (@lexie_galaxie) June 9, 2018
That is the most Grandma-like thing to do and I love it.
Only way to top it is if it needed a wash.

As someone else pointed out, maybe thats the reason they are 20 off.
Boxing in its infancy allowed men to have the novel experience of being able to punch seven shades of shit out of each other in the controlled environment of a boxing ring, especially if they remembered to grasp a bar of lead before putting the gloves on, laughed the UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon today and passers-by didnt get hit over the head with a bar stool. More rules followed, most importantly the Round, Break, Round, Break sequence which generally gave better survival rates. We see no reason why this wouldnt work with war which, if were being honest, has a truly dreadful Health & Safety history.
Mr Ban enthusiastically outlined how, with just an hours pause in hostilities each day, combatants might nip down to A&E for urgent medical treatment or, if it was a local event, perhaps do the school run or fit in the weekly Tesco shop. Or maybe just chill out for a while, with a blueberry muffin and skinny Mochachino in Starbucks he suggested.
UN military analysts, trained on Demolition City 2 and War of Legends, and informed by TV coverage of conflicts in the Middle East, believe traditional war waging is no longer fit for purpose. What were after in the 21st century is a truly civil war said the Secretary General, with a handshake at the end and none of that rape and pillage malarkey.
He went on to outline his own ideas for fairer wars, including trained medical staff on hand, a referee to break up the party if things really start to get out of hand, three independent judges to score the event, toilet facilities, non-contributory pensions, safe sex advice, a rest room and two dedicated smoking areas. One to smoke cigarettes and cigars in; the other to be placed in after youve been hit with incendiary ordnance. That should stop other people being affected by your smoking.
Some insiders have suggest that, outside the world of on-line gaming, there might be some difficulty in enforcing such rules but the UN boss was upbeat. On the day, the referee could dock a side one or more points or even disqualify them from the match. Then, post-match, we have severe financial penalties or even the loss of a War Licence. Well stop at nothing to ensure fair play.

Security measures have been ramped up for the upcoming meeting between Donald Trump and Kim-Jong Un, with the leaders to meet in in a playpen fitted with extra child-safe locks and a full-perimeter fence.
The Secret Service began setting up the Tick-Tock Playtime Playpen this morning, Singapore time, being sure to secure the Velcro straps, and correctly insert the no-fuss rubber playmat. Toys will be added to the playpen in time for the meeting.
A spokesperson for the Secret Service said the two leaders would be supervised at all times. We have minders on hand to clean up any mess or to step in when there are tantrums, he said.
In the lead up to the meeting, Donald said that he had more planes and helicopters and ships than Kim so there.

For weeks now tension has been building with the country seemingly paralysed by an almost palpable feeling of tense excitement, foreboding and uncertainty.
But now the shadow has passed and we can all get on with enjoying the remainder of the year as The Colour has, much to the relief of everyone, finally been trooped and Britain can once more go about its business.
Alf Rodgers, an unemployed factory worker from Bethnal Green, cruelly thrown on the scrap heap when his factory was compulsorily purchased for new inner city polo ground and who was in the crowd on The Mall said: This has made my Summer . I aint got naffink, me, but I love Britains sense of occasion and pageantry. Its sammink what sustains me throughout the year, especially when I aint got sod all to eat, like now. Dont suppose youd have a spare few quid for a cuppa, mate?
And the ceremony itself wasnt without more excitement than usual this year, when sensationally The Colour was snatched momentarily from hands of the Colour Sargent by two youths on a moped. However catastrophe was averted when approximately 5000 soldiers surrounded the hapless pair and then kicked the living shit out of them, thus securing the Colours troopedness for the nation once more.
