VOCABULARY: finger of honour — doigt d’honneur in French

Saturday, March 31, 2018

French driver faces jail time for “disrespecting” a speed camera. Hint: He disrespected in the classic way, which I now learn the French call the “digit of honor.” Must adopt that phrase.

A 46-year-old motorist in the Loire department of central France has been warned he faces two to four months in jail after sticking his middle finger up to two speed cameras back in May 2015.

However while the driver accepted that he was speeding and paid his fines, he denied giving the one-finger salute, known as the doigt d’honneur in French (finger of honour), to two speed cameras at Saint-Forgeux-Lespinasse and Bessay-sur-Allier.

“At that moment, I was talking to my girlfriend, and I was upset because she was talking about her ex-boyfriend. The finger was intended for her,” he said. 

The public prosecutor’s office said that even though the driver had already paid his fines for speeding they pressed charges against him for “insulting a person tasked with a public service mission”.

POLITICAL: Misdirection from true causes to “never let a good crisis go to waste”

Broward Superintendent: Keep Focus on Gun Control, Not ‘Fake News’ on Obama Policy to End ‘School to Prison Pipeline’
by DR. SUSAN BERRY24 Mar 2018

*** begin quote ***

Broward County, Florida, superintendent of schools Robert Runcie says it is “fake news” that his PROMISE school leniency program likely allowed accused school shooter Nikolas Cruz to remain under the radar of law enforcement and, therefore, able to purchase the firearm that killed 17 individuals at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February.

*** end quote ***

The Gooferment bureaucrats never want to take responsibility for the results of their policies.

This “school to prison” policy MIGHT have had some worthy objectives. I never heard this policy overtly stated, but it certainly has come up now.

And, it really just highlights why Gooferment Skrules should not exist. 

Argh!

INTERESTING: Superb Fairywrens’ “secret password”

Thursday, March 29, 2018

https://www.howtogeek.com/trivia/which-of-these-birds-teaches-their-offspring-a-secret-password-while-they-are-incubating/

Answer: Superb Fairywrens

In an incredibly clever bid to protect their offspring from parasitic bird species that would dump their young on superb fairywrens and flee, the wrens consistently use special vocalisations while the young wrens are still inside their eggs. Before parasitic birds like the Horsfield’s bronze-cuckoo can drop their eggs off in the nest, the wren’s own babies already know the secret vocalisation pattern by heart.

When all the eggs hatch, the wren chicks incorporate the secret vocalisation pattern into their begging for food and the mother provides the chicks that produce the vocalisation pattern the most accurately with the most food. The parasite’s chicks, on the other hand, don’t know the vocalisation pattern and the mother wren neglects them.

Trump says he’d like to testify in Russia probe
Posted on March 22, 2018 by Editor

Mueller will try to pull a General Flynn with Trump of course and try to trap him in a lie or a misstatement so that he can get SOMETHING on Trump. But hey, in a slugfest, one has to slug.

*** end quote ***

All one has to do is review all the reversed convictions and the TV “legal shows” like “Law & Order”, etc. etc. You’ll then know one NEVER EVER talks to the police or prosecutors.

Argh!

DJT45 would drop HUGE imho if he falls for this trap.

​Why the uproar that DJT45 did basically the same thing as BHO44 except that BHO44 probably had Facebook’s help doing it?

VOCABULARY: Woonerf?

re woonerf. Spelled correctly. Also known as a shared street.

The article advised Miami was going to try a woonerf in a four block area of the Wynwood section.

A woonerf is where cars, bikes, and pedestrians share the pavement on an equal footing.

Sounds strange. But, it works.

Experienced it on my several trips to Novara in northern Italy. Anna’s condo sits in a 1,500 year old building. The building sits on a wide street. Cars, bikes and people move freely over the street. There is no sidewalk. Everyone exercises caution. Cars travel a bit slower.

Never experienced a problem. Never even gave it a thought that the street was being shared by everyone.
